At 6′ 2″ barefoot, I thought I was tall. Then I played against two 6′ 8″ basketball players at Whetstone Rec Center in Columbus. Later, I felt even smaller next to a 7 foot high school basketball player. But when I read about Robert Wadlow, I get the idea that even Manute Bol would have felt small next to him. He was 8′ 11″ tall! Yikes! You can read all about him here.
