Al Jefferson’s nickname is NBA Big Man, which makes you think, considering he plays a sport involving some of the tallest people on earth.
Jefferson retired from his 14 year long NBA career in 2019 and promptly signed on as a player in the BIG3, where he currently plays.
Dwight Howard – 6’11″, 265 lbs
Formerly known as the Rocket's center, Dwight Howard has seen a lot on the basketball court. However, since he is 6’11″ tall, it would take some time to see it because looking up at his face means serious neck pain.
Howard currently plays for the Los Angeles Lakers. When he's not playing, he enjoys gardening and spending time with his 20 snakes, much like any other normal person does.
Glen Davis – 6’9″, 289 lbs
Glen Davis is nicknamed Big Baby. We're not too sure about the baby part, but we definitely see why anyone would call him big. At 15 years old, Davis met Shaquille O'Neal at a basketball camp. The two played a friendly game during which Davis boy slammed Shaq to the ground. O'Neal was obviously impressed.
In 2006, he was named Player of the Year by SEC, and the following year officially joined the NBA. Davis most recently played for St. John's Edge.
Shaun Rogers – 6’4″, 350 lbs
When you're built like a rhino, your future as a football player is pretty much set in stone, and Rogers is no different. His football career started in high school and stretches all the way to 2013.
As a 6’4 and 350 lbs player, you’re a mean machine of muscle on the field. And as far as defensive tackles go, he was a monster in his prime on the field.
Marcus Cannon – 6’5″, 335 lbs
Push weight loss plans out of your mind because we’re here to talk about 6’6, 335 lbs NFL lineman Marcus Cannon. Cannon has been with the NFL for seven years and is with the New England Patriots. We’re sure he was devastated over the result of Super Bowl 2018.
On top of Cannon's football career, he also has a degree in communications from TCU. In 2011, he was diagnosed with cancer, but he has been treated for it, and it is in constant remission. He must be a great inspiration to his wife and three kids.
