The tallest basketball player in the league right now is Tacko Fall, who in a league of giants towers over many of his opponents at 7-foot-5. Fall is a marvel to look at and even more fun to watch play, as he uses his long arms and grand stature to dominate in the paint for the Boston Celtics. 

However, even though the NBA is a league built on tremendous heights, on current rosters, there are just 31 players 7 feet tall or over. Some teams feature no players that tall, while others like the Dallas Mavericks feature a pair of giants: the 7-foot-4 Boban Marjanovic and the 7-foot-3 Kristaps Porzingis, who are both right behind Fall for the title of tallest NBA player. Some of these players are even among the tallest players in NBA history, and the 7-foot-2 Bol Bol is the son of Manute Bol, who was in his day one of the tallest NBA players ever.

So check out this list of basketball players by height and vote up the NBA tall men doing the most with their size, then head over and check out some of the heaviest players in the NBA right now, and the tallest current football players.
