Avid sports watchers will tell you that the WNBA is more of a technical sport compared to the NBA. The reasoning behind that is because the ladies aren’t as athletic and must rely more on skill and fundamentals. It’s not like they’re LeBron James just running down the lane dunking on everyone. However, Margo Dydek could have banged with the big boys. She stood at 7’2″.

“Dydek, who weighed 223 pounds and had a 7-foot wingspan, was distinguished by a grace and agility that belied her size,” reported the New York Times. Drafted number one overall in 1998, she, unfortunately, passed away in 2011 at the age of 37.

The person up next deserved his nickname to the fullest.
