The Land of Giants: The Largest Athletes in Sports History

13. Brittney Griner

One of the most well-known players in the WNBA, Brittney Griner stands at over 6 feet 9 inches tall, and has a remarkable arm span of 86 inches. Currently, she plays for the Phoenix Mercury and for UMMC Ekaterinburg in the Russian Premier League during the WNBA off-season.

Griner’s one of the best players in WNBA history, and one of the only players in the league to ever dunk during a playoff game. Her 2017 season was one of her best as she scored a career high of 38 points during a single game against the Indiana Fever.
