Paul Soliai has the ideal body for a professional football player, and his potential as a pro has been evident since his high school years. This Samoan tank of a man is 6’4″ tall and 345 lbs heavy, which would make any opposing player think twice before trying to tackle him.
Soliai’s latest game was played for the Carolina Panthers in 2017. But technically speaking, he officially retired in 2018 after signing a one day contract with the Miami Dolphins so he could retire as a true Dolphin.
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.
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.
Pau Gasol – 7’, 245 lbs
We’re betting that Pau Gasol will make history when he’s finally entered into the Hall of Fame. It’s as sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. The 7′ six-time NBA All-Star is a beast on the court.
As the son of two healthcare workers (a doctor and a nurse administrator), Gasol was first interested in pursuing a medical career, and he is still interested in medicine. His other interests include music and foreign languages. We thought that kind if people stopped existing after the Renaissance, but we're happy to see they aren't extinct.
Kevin Garnett – 6'11 , 240 lbs
21 seasons in the NBA are not something people can usually take. Kevin Garnett, however, is anything but usual. Towering the height of 6’11″, Garnett's career is over two decades long, which shouldn't be taken lightly.
Garnett quit basketball in 2016. Since then, he has been serving as a consultant for the Los Angeles Clippers and performing on TV, among other things.
