Basketball Players
Contest Directions: Basketball is America's #1 sport. Taller athletes literally get the upper hand in the game, that's why there are so many tall NBA players, and so few short ones. The tallest athlete in NBA history was Romanian-born Gheorghe Muresan who played for the Maryland Nighthawks. Muresan's height is 7 ft 7 in (2.31 m), and his weight was 315 lb (143 kg) during his professional career (he gained a few pounds since he retired in 2006). The tall guy on today's photo is Sudanese-born NBA player Manute Bol, who holds the second place on the list of NBA tallest athletes. Bol's height was also 7 ft 7 in (2.31 m), but he was just slightly shorter than Muresan who got into the Guinness Book of World Records. In comparison, the shortest athlete in NBA history, Tyrone "Muggsy" Bogues - the short guy on today's photo - is just 5 ft 3 in (1.60 m) - he is 4 inches shorter than Tom Cruise. So, in principle, Tom Cruise could become a professional NBA player, had he not chosen to become an actor.
