There was a video of Kyrie walking through a crowd of regular people in LA the other day and it highlighted this more than these big men photos do IMO. Kyrie was taller than almost everyone.

Even guys who look little and small on the court to us are taller than most regular people. Even 6’4” is a taller person in regular life and 6’6” and above is like a lifetime of “wow - you must play/have played basketball” comments...

Bezos looks like Lex Luthor. I had to post it.
The NFL should exempt one contract like the quarterback or left tackle from the salary cap.

Shaq said in an interview that he calls Yao Ming “7/11” because she says his 7’5 listing was bogus and that he’s really just under 8 feet tall. That picture confirms it. He’s fackin’ huge.

i was with a friend at a knick game. he's 5'11". we were sitting a couple of tiers up. he wanted to see how tall the basketball players were so he walked down to the floor. as i watched him walk down, he became smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller until i couldn't even see him. i saw the players, though
