Wow, depending on where you look, Manute Bol is listed at 7'6" or 7'7" and the Muresan is also 7'7". I thinkk Bol was 7'6" so I voted for Muresan. According to wikipedia Muresan is the tallest player ever to play in the NBA, at just millimeters taller than Manute Bol. Interesting.

gomanute considers Acromegaly cheating. Manute Bol was supposed to be 7'7"; Gheorghe Muresan was not.

Webb is probably an inch or two taller than Boykins, but Webb can dunk (or could). Despite their size, they both are pretty much fearless when on the court, which says a lot given today's average NBA player. But, Webb could dunk! So, I gotta give it to Webb.

Check out this 1986 Slam Dunk Contest real. Pretty nifty stuff.

Great link...that was back when the Slam Dunk contest was actually fun to watch! The '88 Jordan/Wilkins battle was the greatest of all-time though. And in my mind, Dominique is still the greatest dunker of all-time.

I'm going with Manute in 8 rounds due to his arm length.

gomanute remembers once using a cropped and resized version of that photograph as his signature.



gomanute would win by decision, just like how Manute Bol defeated William Perry.

gofridge also used a cropped and resized version of that photograph as his signature.



gofridge believes Manute Bol cheated and the Celebrity Boxing judges were corrupt. gofridge would easily defeat gomanute by KO.
