Gheorghe Muresan - 7’7” 325 lb
This guy will block any shot, any day. Born in Romania, Gheorghe moved to the US to continue his basketball career in the NBA. He played for the Washington Bullets, the New Jersey Nets, and the Maryland Nighthawks as the Center.
In Gheorghe’s case, his height was not hereditary whatsoever. His parents were of “normal height” and it was discovered that Gheorghe's height is attributed to a pituitary gland disorder. He retired back in 2006 after 15 years of playing basketball professionally.
