Gheorghe Muresan

Today we interview Gheorghe Muresan, a retired Romanian professional basketball player. At 7 ft 7 in, he is tied with Sudanese player Manute Bol as the tallest man to ever play in the NBA. Yep, taller than Yao Ming. Like Bol, both his parents are of average size, but unlike Bol his great height is the result of a pituitary disorder. Gheorghe’s short NBA career lasted parts of six seasons, and he saw action with the Washington Bullets and the New Jersey Nets.
