Before NBA players participate in the draft, various scouts and league executives generally get their dynamic and static talent data.
It is true that dynamic data such as bounce and speed are often the focus of attention of fans and scouts, but static data such as wingspan is also an important basis for judging whether a player can make a difference in the future.
Today, let us take a look at the wingspan statistics of the stars in the NBA and see who has the SSS-level super wingspan.
Class C: Griffin, Yao Ming
Since entering the league as the No. 1 pick, Blake Griffin has been ridiculed as “short-armed Finn”.
Because Griffin’s wingspan is only 2.06 meters with a height of 2.08 meters, although Griffin’s wingspan is a normal proportion of ordinary people compared with his height, but in the NBA, a league that values all talents, such an arm
The exhibition is obviously not enough to watch.
Fortunately, Griffin’s bounce is strong enough. His non-human bounce and not low height make up for this shortcoming very well in the early stage.
However, the recent continuous injuries have caused Griffin to gradually lose his beast-like athleticism, and the disadvantages exposed by such a C-level wingspan have become increasingly obvious.
Yao Ming’s achievements in the NBA are enough to make him worthy of the title of “King of Asia”. It is worth mentioning that Dayao, who has a C-level wingspan, also entered the league as the No. 1 pick.
Yao Ming, who is 2.26 meters tall, has a wingspan of only 2.20 meters, but such a wingspan did not cause too much hindrance to Yao Ming. His giant height and delicate inside play are the important capital for Yao Ming to settle down in the league.
Grade A: Iverson
At his peak, Allen Iverson had many fans in the league, and his sharp change of direction allowed him to win a finals victory in the hands of the peak OK group alone.
And this sharp crossover still benefits from Iverson’s excellent wingspan. With a height of 1.83 meters (only the official registration, it should not have reached it), his wingspan is 1.94 meters. Such a wingspan is already normal
A-level wingspan combined with whirlwind speed let “answer” all over the league.
S rank: Howard
The reason why Dwight Howard, who is “only” about 2.10 meters tall, was once called the league’s number one center is not only due to his exaggerated jumping, but also the wingspan of the sparks is also an important factor.
Howard’s wingspan is 2 meters 23. Such a super wingspan allows Howard to complete many brutal dunks and hot pot hats that block the sky.
Howard, who participated in the slam dunk contest twice, played as Superman. The image of the roc spreading its wings in the air is the perfect testimony of the S-level wingspan.
SS class: Durant, Davis
The reason why Kevin Durant can win many scoring titles in the league is because of his slender arms and unsolvable shooting.
“Reaper Du” is about 2.10 meters tall, but his wingspan has reached a terrifying 2.26 meters.
This kind of height and wingspan allows Durant to easily hit shots even when facing inside defense. Looking at the relative position of Durant’s wrist and the defensive player when he takes off, he knows that such an SS-level wingspan is well-deserved.
After coming to the Lakers, Anthony Davis thoroughly proved that he is definitely not a data brush.
His comprehensive scoring skills and absolute inside defense can help his team compete for the championship, and all of this is due to the outstanding static physical talent of Brother Nongmei.
Davis is 2.08 meters tall, and his wingspan has reached a frightening 2.33 meters. This SS-level wingspan ensures that the thick eyebrows can put the ball into the basket in various ways and give it to the basket in various ways.

SSS Grade: Ball
The name Manute Ball may be unfamiliar to less experienced fans, but this is normal, because Ball has played in the NBA for 10 seasons, averaging 2.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, belonging to the grassroots.
But what really interested fans about Ball was his weird figure.
Manute Boll is 2.31 meters tall, but weighs only 95 kilograms. In the confrontational 80s and 90s, Boll was like a straw.
However, Ball still played in the league for ten years, because his wingspan reached 2.59 meters, the longest in NBA history. Blocking shots is as easy as eating for him, and this wingspan is enough to occupy the SSS level alone.
