Giannis from the Bucks.

On the side note, I have a friend whose 6'5'' with a 6'11'' wingspan. Very efficient in the post and can shoot the ball. For normal people, I consider a near 7 foot wingspan freakish . I myself am 5'9'' with a 6'1'' wingspan

His arm span is beyond normal for a typical white guy but still normal for a BBall player, he was about 6-9 or 6-10 with a 7-4 armspan, like Dwight or Bill Russell. Any '8 footwingspan' myths connected to his name or anyone else's (Ewing) are bunk

True. Some reports/articles "claim" that he had an 8' wingspan.. I don't know about that one, but I wouldn't go against it...

Wests is 6-9 armspan is pretty typical for a BBall player in light of recent info about his height (6-4 and change). Rondos armspan is the same for example, but he's 3 inches shorter. There's a few extreme ones I wrote down on a spreadsheet that trump all these bigger name players, I'll have to look it up when I get a break here at work
