A Sudanese-born NBA player Manute Bol was undisputedly the tallest player ever to appear in the NBA. He was 7 ft 7 in (2.31 m) tall.
I’m unclear on the point of this post. First of all, Manute, who I’ve met, is tied with Gheorghe Mureşan (who I’ve also met) as the tallest NBA player. Second, this isn’t anything new – it’s been common NBA knowledge for more than 20 years. I thought you publishing this had something to do with Manute being hospitalized recently, but it doesn’t. Lastly, way to republish all the photos from Sports Illustrated.com.
