I saw the undersized 5 thread, so naturally I thought I would make an oversized 5 thread, i.e. the tallest players to play each position all-time

PG - Magic 6'9"
SG - Turkoglu/Durant 6'10"
SF - Dirk? 7'0"
PF - Duncan 7'0"
C - Manute Bol 7'8"

I think Dirk plays some SF at times. You might be able to find some better examples, but this is all I could think of right now.

He doesn't know what fan he is.

He has a lakers user name with a Warriors picture.

if Dirk doesnt then Andrea Bargnani who is also 7'0" does play small forward...sure hes not the best small forward but hes tall and thats really what were looking for isnt it?

Shaun Livingston is over 6'7" at PG i dont know how tall he actually is

and to the laker fan the only bogus answer he has is Bynum at center...I can think of a million players taller than 7'1"

other centers would be Yao at 7'6", Shawn Bradley was 7'5" i think, and outside the NBA you would have 7'9" Sun Ming Ming and that 7'9" kid who plays college ball in North Carolina i cant remember his name...something Howard i think

It may be typical, but it's also just a good example of one very tall team, not just the all time tallest ever to play a position.

PG Magic/Lebron he sometimes plays the PG
SG Kevin Durant/ Hedo
SF KG/Dirk/ Nicole Tichillvii or something like that Minnesota SF
PF Ralph Sampson
C Georghe Muresan ( he was taller than Bol by less than a half on inch)

You make Laker fans looks really bad doing that crap. Sun Yue at PG? Really? Ever heard of this one guy named Magic Johnson? Come on!

Why do you have a pic of Davis also?

C Georghe Muresan ( he was later than Bol by less than a half on inch)

You're right, I thought Manute Bol was 7'8", but he is actually 7'7" and Muresan is slightly taller according to wikipedia

He makes Lakers fans look smart. Anybody can dip into history to find the tallest players at each position, but all his examples are in the NBA right now.

well im guessing the predominant position is what you'd be looking for with an oversized team... don't think KG or Dirk play SF all that often...

Well if that's the case, then Bargnani like McJoe said is good example. He is a 7-footer who primarily plays SF

The Kings future frontcourt looks pretty big...

Donte Greene: 6'10
Jason Thompson: 6'11
Spencer Hawes: 7'0

But all time....

Magic
Hedo
Dirk/Bargani
Sampson
Georghe Muresan

I agree. Odom is 6'10 with looong arms, and he can actually play SF.
I don't think Dirk/KG/Bargnani counts as SFs.
