Manute Bol- 7 feet, 7 inches tall... Sudanese Dinka herdsman and twice NBA shot blocking leader. Parts of Northeast Africa are home to the most elongated peoples on earth. These tall, skinny cattle-herding Nilotic tribes like the Dinkas and Nuers presumably evolved their elegant and extraordinary shapes in order to disperse body heat as rapidly as possibly by maximizing surface area to volume. For example, Manute's sister is 6'-10". Manute grew up guarding his family's cattle. At 15 he killed a marauding lion with his spear. He was first handed a basketball at age 19 and told to try to dunk it. On his initial attempt he smashed several teeth on the rim. He soon became much sought after by American colleges, despite being, like everyone in his tribe, illiterate. Teammate Charles Barkley said Manute had to be the smartest person he ever met to be able adapt to such a radically different life in America as an adult.

One from Utah... see Shawn Bradley, and or Mofo
