You might be thinking 40 seven-footers are no big deal. You might be thinking people are taller today and that there were more 7 footers today than there used to be. Not true. a seven foot person is one in 2,300,000. You also might be thinking “what about basketball players many of them are 7 foot tall. . . Well let’s look at the current tallest basketball players:

Gheorghe Mureșan 7 foot 7

Manute Bol 7 foot 6 3/4

Slavko Vraneš 7 foot 6

Shawn Bradley 7 foot 6

Yao Ming 7 foot 6

Chuck Nevitt 7 foot 5

Pavel Podkolzin 7 foot 5

Mark Eaton 7 foot 4

Rik Smits 7 foot 4

Ralph Sampson 7 foot 4

Priest Lauderdale 7 foot 4

Peter John Ramos 7 foot 3.5

Randy Breuer 7 foot 3

Keith Closs 7 foot 3

Swede Halbrook 7 foot 3

Žydrūnas Ilgauskas 7 foot 3

Aleksandar Radojević 7 foot 3

Arvydas Sabonis 7 foot 3

Ha Seung-Jin 7 foot 3

Hasheem Thabeet  7 foot 3

Only one is active as of the 2013–14 season; Hasheem Thabeet of the Detroit Pistons.

So finding 40 seven-footers is kind of a big deal!
