meyers leonard meets fan
Almost nobody in the world is 7'1" tall and yet everybody on this page is that big!  Yes it's the basketball section. But not just the bball section, it's the tallest of the tall section.

Dalibor Bagarić (born1980 in Munich, West Germany) is a Croatian professional basketball player who formerly played for the NBA's Chicago Bulls from 2000 to 2003.  A 7'1" (2.16 m) center, Bagaric had averaged 18.3 points and 10.4 rebounds per game for the Croatian team Benston Zagreb before the Bulls selected him with the 24th pick in the 2000 NBA Draft. Bagarić never averaged more than 3.7 points and 3.2 rebounds per game in the NBA.

He returned to Europe after the Bulls bought out his contract in 2003, and began playing for the Greek club Olympiacos. In 2004 he moved to Italian club Fortitudo Bologna. In the summer of 2006, he transferred to CB Girona of the Spanish ACB league. On September 2007 he returned to Fortitudo Bologna after signing on a one year contract. In November 2010 he signed with Maroussi B.C. At the beginning of the 2011-12 season, Bagarić signed with CB Valladolid, but left the club in late November, returning back to Croatia and signing with Cedevita. In September 2012, he signed a one-month deal with Sporting Al Riyadi Beirut in Lebanon. In December 2012, he signed with the Lebanese club Amchit.  The question is, is he man enough to play on a team full of Lesbianese women.  Some of those girls are really, really butch.  You make a foul, they will slap you!

Jacopo Borra is 7'1" (2.15m) like every other man on this page. He was born in Torino, Italy in 1990.  He played in the European championships in 2010. In 2012 he played against Greece twice and France twice. In 2012 he signed a two year contract with Pistolio, a company the plays in Legadue, one of the favorites for promotion to bigger leagues.

Boyishly handsome Meyers Leonard overcame a terrible childhood to become a player in the NBA.  Born in 1992, he played in college for the University of Illinois and was selected by the Portland Trailblazers as the 11th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft. 

Leonard's early life in Robinson, Illinois, a small town roughly at the boundary between central and southern Illinois, was largely defined by family tragedy. When he was six years old, his father James, a golf pro, was killed in a freak bicycle accident. His mother Tracie, once an athlete who would run upwards of 10 miles a day, had been largely housebound since her husband's death, victimized by an old horseback injury and subsequent disc surgery that left her with crippling pain. When he was in second grade, the young Leonard gained a surrogate family. Brian Siler, an insurance agent in Robinson who had a son of the same age, was aware of Leonard's family situation, and eventually became a father figure. Leonard regularly attended the Silers' church and went on family vacations.

Leonard entered high school as a guard, but was converted to center after a six-inch (15 cm) growth spurt between his freshman and sophomore years. Ouch!  Talk about growing pains!  You can't shoot up that fast without feeling out of sorts.  Sportswriters called him "something of a basketball anomaly", adding that Leonard "gained all that height without losing his coordination or his fast-twitch muscles." In high school, Leonard was named a member of the 2010 Illinois All-American Team as selected by the Associated Press, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, News-Gazette, and the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association. Leonard led Robinson High School to the IHSA class 2A state championship before choosing to play collegiate basketball at the University of Illinois.

Meyers brother Bailey, a ridiculously handsome Marine, surprised his sibling by showing up back from Afghanistan at a basketball game. The video went viral and you can see it in the page below.


7'1" MEYERS LEONARD AND HIS HANDSOME MARINE BROTHER
Having a close relationship his entire life with big brother Bailey, Meyers was shocked when his brother, who was currently on duty as a U.S. Marine, flew to Illinois to surpise Meyers and watch him play for the first time in years.  They both had a very sad childhood full of death and poverty but they are overcoming it.
