In basketball, size matters. Bob Wegner’s size is head and shoulders above everyone else. See what I did there?
Anyway, this guy is REALLY tall. I look up to him for that. Ha, I did it again.
Stop goofing off, and show us the proof. Here ya go.

A basketball player who measures a whopping 7ft 8in is believed to be the world’s tallest pro athlete.
Bob Wegner – or ‘Big Bob’ as he’s known – is taller than current record holder British basketball player Paul Sturgess who stands at 7ft 7.26in.
The 21-year-old has a hand span of 28cm across and wears a U.S. shoe size of 23 (A UK 22).
Bob from Strafford, New Hampshire, plays for the Lake Michigan Admirals, making him the world’s tallest professional sportsman.
I wonder how long he was at birth. He was probably one heck of a long baby!
