If I asked you if you could think of anyone with a bigger wingspan than that of Rudy Gobert, the Utah Jazz center who has been nicknamed the Stifle Tower, my guess is that you’d slap me in the face for even asking such a ridiculous question.
It had been five quiet years since Gobert set the NBA Combine record for wingspan in 2013 at 7 feet, 8.5 inches. That is, until former Texas center Mo Bamba came along.
The expected lottery pick topped Gobert during his measurement session at the Combine on Thursday, hitting a total wingspan of 7-feet, 10 inches. Bamba was already being mocked in the top 10. His enormous wingspan might just push him into the top five.
