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.
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.
Paul Soliai – 6’4″, 345 lbs
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.
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.
CC Sabathia – 6’7″, 290 lbs
As far as extraordinary left-handed pitchers go, CC Sabathia takes the cake. And then there’s the fact that he’s 6’7 and 290lbs, so yeah, he’s also one of the largest MLB athletes.
Sabathia's baseball career started as a high school student. He was courted by many colleges who wanted him to play for their teams. He was first drafted by the Cleveland Indians in 1998, and his latest team was the New York Yankees.
