NBA Players Who Have the Biggest Hands

NBA Players Who Have the Biggest Hands

A big hand can be a great advantage in basketball. This allows you to quickly and easily handle the ball, which is not essential but can be very useful. This can impact your shooting, passing, and ball handling. Basketball is all about controlling the ball. Imagine how much easier it is to play basketball if you could feel the ball as a softball in one’s hands. You’d have complete control.

Julius Erving and Michael Jordan were among the NBA’s greatest players. Although it wasn’t their only advantage, it was an important one and likely why they were able finish so well at rim.

This was a unique advantage that Kobe Bryant acknowledged. He said that his hands were the most important thing about his game. He said that he wished he could have huge hands like Michael Jordan. Phil Jackson was asked which player would win in a one-on-one game between Bryant and Jordan. The Zen Master chose MJ. He chose MJ because of his hand size advantage over Kobe.

This article will examine the hand size of some NBA players, both past and present. The hand span and length of the players will also be taken into consideration. It will also be possible to make reasonable estimates of the sizes of players who have not been officially measured. However, it is usually easy to see who has the largest hands. They can move the ball like a grapefruit, and they don’t need to hold the ball.

The length of your hand is measured from the bottom of your palm to the tip or middle finger.

The hand span is measured from your thumb tip to the tip the pinky finger, with your hand extended.

How is the NBA measuring hand size?

Since the 2010 Combine, the NBA has measured the span and length of potential rookie hands. The measurement of hand size is made up of two parts: hand length and hand span.

The hand length is measured from the bottom of the palm to where the tip of your middle finger is. Few NBA players have hands that are more than 10 inches in length. Andrew Nicholson and Jaren Jackson Jr. are some examples. Average hand length for males is 7.4 inches.

The hand span is the distance between the tip and the pinky finger. Sometimes, hand span is also called hand width or spread. Even NBA players are unlikely to have a hand span greater than 12 inches. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Gregory Smith are two examples of players who have such hand spans. Average male hand span is approximately 8.5 inches.

The average person’s length is more than their span. Rarely, however, is the reverse true. Joseph Young, Indiana Pacers’ player, has a hand span that is 7 inches. This is significantly smaller than his 8.25 inch hand. TJ McConnell and Harrison Barnes, Alec Burks, Alec Burks, TJ McDonnell, Markieff Morris, Alec Burks, and Markieff Morris all have handspans that are shorter than their hand lengths.

Some players may have their lengths and spans equal. This category includes NBA players such as JaMychal Green and Al Farouq Aminu. Sean Kilpatrick and Andre Drummond are also included.

These measurements are rarely separated by more than two inches. Few NBA players have handspans that exceed 2 inches, such as Noah Vonleh and Hassan Whiteside.

Rajon Rondo is currently the point guard for Los Angeles Lakers.

15. Rajon Rondo

Rajon Rondo, a true miracle of nature, is one of the most outstanding point guards in NBA history. His wingspans and heights are among the most remarkable in NBA history. Rondo is only 6’1″ tall and has a hand span of 10 inches.

Rajon’s hands measure the same length as Wilt Chamberlain, 7’1″. His average height is 8.3 inches. It is amazing that Nikola Vucevic’s hands, despite being nearly a foot taller than Rondo, are only 2.2% shorter than Rondo.

Rondo is the same height as DeMarcus Cousins, who stands 6’11”. His span is remarkable, at 17.6%, despite being nine inches longer than Anthony Davis.

Jahlil Okafor serves as a center for New Orleans Pelicans.

14. Jahlil Okafor

Jahlil Okafor, one of few people who can hold 13 tennis ball in one hand, is Jahlil Okafor. An average person can only hold six tennis balls. He also amazed everyone by holding three apples in his hand while taking a photo of a draft.

Okafor has a hand span of 11.25 inches. It’s no surprise that he can do amazing things with his hands. Although there are no data to prove his hand length, it’s safe to assume that it is at least 9.5 inches. He is 6’11” tall and has extremely large hands for his height. Nerlens Noel is the same height and has a 12.5% wider hand span than Jahlil. Surprisingly, Okafor’s hand span is wider than that of Steven Adams (7’0″)

The No. Elgin Baylor, the No. 1 draft pick in 1958, was the NBA Rookie of Year in 1959 and is considered one of the best players in the game.

13. Elgin Baylor

From the way Elgin Baylor handled the ball, anyone can see that he had large hands. Unfortunately, it was difficult to get accurate measurements of his hand size. Comparing Baylor’s handprint with Michael Jordan’s shows Baylor to have roughly the same hand size.

MJ’s thumb seems to stick out a little further, giving him a slightly larger hand span than Baylor. Baylor’s hand span is approximately 11 inches. This is amazing considering that Baylor stands at 6’5″.

Wayne Embry was a player in the NBA All-Star Game for five consecutive seasons (1961-1965), and won the NBA Championship in 1968 with the Celtics.

12. Wayne Embry

The gentle giant, 6’8″, has large mitts to match his height. It’s hard to determine his hand size. Embry’s hand span measures 12 inches. It is not known how long his hand measures. Fortunately, Embry offered to measure his hand length with Noah Vonleh’s hand. We know Noah Vonleh’s hand size with absolute certainty so that we can predict his actual hand measurements.

Vonleh has hands at least 0.5 inches longer that Embry’s. They have about the same spans. Embry’s hand should be approximately 9.25 inches long and his span about 11.75 inches. Wayne Embry is approximately the same height as Lebron James, but his hands are not nearly as large.

Royce White is currently playing for Auxilium Turino in the Italian LBA.

11. Royce White

A 6’8″ NBA player has a hand average of 8.9 inches. That height averages 9.7 inches in hand span. Royce is 6’8″, but his hand span and length are the same as Wilt Chamberlain’s 7’1″. His hand span was 11.5 inches, which was the largest at the 2012 Draft Combine.

“The Big Dipper,” the NBA’s first player to score 100 points during a game, is known as “The Big Dipper”.

10. Wilt Chamberlain

Wilt’s large hands were a major factor in his dominance as a player in NBA history. Although his hands were only 9.5 inches long and 11.5 inches wide, they were significantly larger than the average for someone his size. Wilt’s hands were larger than Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s which is slightly taller that “The Big Dipper”.

Kawhi Leonard (in orange) is a small forward currently playing for Los Angeles Clippers.

9. Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard’s mother noticed his unusually large hands right away when he was born. Even as a baby, he had huge hands. His mother knew that no one could change his baby on her.

Leonard was Canyon Springs High’s freshman wide receiver. They didn’t have receiver gloves for him so he had to be sent to a local sporting goods shop. The largest size available in the store did not fit “The Claw”, so they had to order special sizes.

Leonard is 6’7″ and has a hand length 9.75 inches. He also has a hand span 11.25 inches. Average length and span for a 6’7″ NBA player are 8.8 inches and 9.5 inches, respectively. Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and Terrence Ross are all the same height. However their hands are not nearly as large as Leonard’s. It is interesting to see that Kawhi’s hand span measures 7.1% wider than Tacko Falls’s, who stands a foot taller.

Michael Jordan is the greatest player in basketball history.

8. Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is a rare anomaly, and his genes were made to make him a basketball legend. He is one of few NBA players who has grown taller despite being born to relatively short parents. He wears a 13 shoe, which is quite small for someone his height. This is what gives him his unique ability to use his feet and do a lot with his footwork. His left foot (size 13.5) seems to be larger than his right (size 13,).

A smaller foot, especially in relation to height, allows for more fluid and graceful movement. A downside to having small feet is that they often come with small hands, which can make it difficult to control the ball. Michael is an exception to this rule. He won the odds and was able to enjoy the best both of them. He was blessed with large hands, despite his small feet. Michael Jordan’s hand span and length are 9.75 inches, and 11.375 inches, respectively.

Bol Bol, at 7’2″, has MJ’s hands significantly longer than MJ’s. It is amazing that Wilt Chamberlain’s hands, despite being seven inches shorter, is 2.6% smaller than Jordan’s. MJ’s hand span measures 3.4% wider than that of Steven Adams (7’0″) Surprisingly Rudy Gobert’s hand width is 13.8% wider than Jordan’s, despite being seven inches shorter.

Julius Erving was the sole player to be voted Most Valuable Player by both the NBA and the ABA.

7. Julius Erving

Julius Erving has always had hands that were big for his stature. When Dr. J was in junior high school, he could dribble a basketball from the dribble. Erving’s enormous mitts gave him excellent control over the ball, allowing him to do almost every kind of dunk possible. It was amazing to see how he could move his arms so fast while simultaneously holding the ball in his hands.

Many debates have been held about Erving’s hand size. His hand size was estimated at nine inches long and eleven inches wide. It can go up to 12 inches in length, and 13 inches in width. Erving was kind enough to compare his hands with Noah Vonleh’s, whose hand measurements we are certain of.

Vonleh’s hand seems to be approximately a quarter inch longer than Ervings. Their spans are very similar. Although Noah’s thumb is slightly longer than Dr. J, it doesn’t stick out as much as MJ’s. Dr. J’s average hand length is 9.5 inches. His hand span is likely to be 11.75 inches. His hand size is comparable to the Draft Combine’s largest. He is even shorter than Vonleh, which makes it even more impressive.

Julius Erving contrasts his hands to Noah Vonleh.

The Charlotte Hornets drafted Noah Vonleh in 2014. He is currently signed to New York Knicks.

6. Noah Vonleh

This power forward, 6’9″, is gifted with all the physical tools needed to succeed in the NBA. His hand size is amazing for his height. A 6’9″ person has a hand length of around 9 inches. The average hand span is 9.7 inches.

Vonleh is 9.75 inches long and 11.75 inches wide. He had the largest hand length and the widest hand span at the 2014 Draft Combine. Paul George’s hand is 14.7% longer than Vonleh’s, despite being the same height. George’s hand span also narrower is 30.5%

In 1992, Connie Hawkins was inducted in the Hall of Fame.

5. Connie Hawkins

Connie Hawkins was able to hold the ball in his hands and finish at the rim in any way that he wanted. His unusually large hands were 10.5 inches long and 11 inches wide.

Lebron James is the same height as “The Hawk”, but his hand span and length are only nine inches and nine-quarter inches, respectively. Connie’s hand was one of the longest in NBA history. He had the same hand size as 7’7″ Tacko fall.

Gregory Smith was last seen playing for Osaka Evessa during the Japanese B.League. He can play both power forward and center.

4. Gregory Smith

Greg Smith’s hand is the longest ever measured at Draft Combine. His hand length is 9.8 inches, and his hand span 12 inches. Smith is the same height as Sultan Kosen (8’3″) This is incredible when you consider that Smith stands at 6’10”. Smith is almost 7’0 taller than his draft mate Nikola Vucevic, and he has a better hand span and length.

  • Hand Size (Length/Span: 9.8”/12″
  • Height: 6’10”
  • Percent taller than the average player’s height:9%
  • Percent larger than the average player’s height:21%

Giannis is the NBA 2K cover star who has never been from the States.

3. Giannis Antetokounmpo

The 6’11” forward is an insanely talented player who plays like a point-guard. He is also one of few NBA players who can boast a 12-inch hand span. Sultan Kosen (8’3″) is also the tallest person alive.

Giannis’ 9.85 inch hand length is something that deserves to be mentioned. It is more than Rudy Gobert’s 7’1″ hand span. Bol Bol (7’2″) has a 26.3% larger hand span than the Greek Freak, with a hand span that is 26.3% greater. Amazingly, Antetokounmpo’s hands are 14.3% wider than Tacko Fall’s, despite him being eight inches taller.

Shaq won three consecutive championships for the Los Angeles Lakers.

2. Shaquille O’Neal

Many believe that Shaq’s large hands are the reason he couldn’t make a free throw. Although it’s similar to an average-sized guy trying to hit a softball, big hands have never stopped Kawhi, Dr. J or MJ from making free throws. It is difficult to determine Shaquille’s hand size.

Shaq compared his hands to Kawhi Leonard live on TV, whose hand size is known with certainty. His hands were much larger than Kawhi’s. Kawhi’s hand length is only half an inch shorter than Shaq’s. It appears that their hand spans don’t differ more than three quarters of an inch. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that Shaq’s hand length ranges from 10-10.25 inches, and that his hand span is between 11.75-12.00.

Wilt Chamberlain was almost equal in height to Shaq, but had a hand span and length of 9.5 and 11.5 inches, respectively. Kawhi’s hand is 6 inches smaller than Shaq.

Boban Marjanovic was selected to the All-EuroLeague First Team in 2015.

1. Boban Marjanovic

Boban Marjanovic might hold the title of having the largest hands in NBA history, if not in the entire world. He has not had his hands measured. His hand span is 14 inches according to some sites, which is extremely unlikely.

Boban’s photo of him shaking hands with Okafor clearly shows that his hands aren’t significantly larger than Okafor. To gauge his true size, it will be interesting to compare his hands to Giannis and Shaq.

He has found that most of the people with whom he has compared their hands have average or below-average sizes. He compared his hands with Ray McCallum, his former teammate. His hand size was officially measured in 2016. This allows us to calculate his size.

McCallum is 6’3″ tall and has very small hands. His hand length is eight inches, and his span is 8.75. It is evident that Boban has a hand length of only three inches more than McCallum’s. They also have handspans that are not more than 3.5 inches.

Boban’s hand span is likely to be between 10.75 and 11 inches. His hand span will likely be between 12-12.25 and 12-12.25 inches. This is comparable to the height of the tallest person alive, who is one foot shorter than him.

  • Hand Size (Length/Span: Estimated at 10.75″/12″.

  • Percent taller than the average player’s height:14%

The Hand Sizes of Famous NBA Players

These are not the most impressive of players, but they do give you a glimpse into the lives of some of the best in the NBA.

LeBron James

His hands were measured to nine inches long and 9.25 inches wide by the king. His height of 6’8″ makes his hand length quite acceptable. His span is shorter than the 9.7 inch average for his height. Kyrie Irving, who is five inches shorter than Lebron, has a greater hand span. James’ three NBA Championships prove that his hands are not a problem.

Kobe Bryant

Bryant’s hands measure approximately nine inches long. This is a bit average for NBA standards, but they are not exceptional at 6’6″. Kobe is able to palm the ball, but he cannot “palm palm it” like Dr J and MJ. He admitted that he envied Dr. J and Jordan’s hands. Phil Jackson, Coach, claimed that MJ would win over Kobe simply because of the size difference between their hands.

Stephen Curry

Unfortunately, Stephen Curry’s hands were not officially measured. Anyone who has seen Curry play can see that his hands aren’t very large. His hand size is average, which would mean that his hand length should be approximately 8.5 inches and his hand span about 9.0 inches. His ability to shoot accurately seems to be supported by the fact that he is one the most skilled players to ever grace the NBA.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Hands measuring nine inches long and nine inches wide are the hands of the NBA’s greatest scorer. Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s hands are quite small for his height of 7’2″. Bol Bol is the same height and has approximately the same hand size.

Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving’s hands are average for his height (6’3″). His hand length is 8.3 inches, and his span is 9.3 inches. His 2016 NBA Championship win with the Cavaliers shows how his hands have been very useful.

Bill Russell

Bill Russell’s hands measure 10.5 inches from the tip tip of his thumb to the tip tip of his pinky finger, with one hand extended. His hands are larger than the average for his height.

Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler’s hand span and length measure exactly nine inches. His hands are much smaller than his 6’8″ height. Despite being nearly a foot shorter, Butler is almost the same height as Isaiah Thomas. He hasn’t let this stop him. He is a four-time NBA All-Star and a four-time NBA All-Defensive Team honoree. He is also a two-time All-NBA Team honoree.

Damian Lillard

Damian Lillard is a big man. Lillard’s hand span is 9.75 inches, and his hand length is 8.75 inches. This is way more than the average height for a 6’3″ man. Lillard’s hand span, despite being five inches less than Butler’s, is about 8% wider.

Klay Thompson

Average hand length and span of a 6’7″ NBA player are 8.7 inches, 9.5 inches. Klay Thompson has a hand length of 8.8 inches and a span of 9.3 inches, which is close to the average height.

Victor Oladipo

Victor Oladipo’s hand length is 8.75 inches, and his hand span is 9.25 inches. His hand length at 6’4″ is slightly more than the average, but his hand span is about the same as the average for his height.

Draymond Green

Draymond Green’s hand span is 9.50 inches. His hand size is very close to the average height for his height at 6’7″.

Paul George is a tall man with very small hands. He has hands the size of a baby compared to Kawhi Leonard’s enormous hands. George is taller than Kawhi, but his hands are almost 15% shorter than Kawhi’s and 25% wider than Kawhi’s.

NBA Players with Small Hands

Many basketball players don’t have large hands. Some are even smaller than others. They can still be very good. Although small hands may not be able to control the ball as well, many people report that they are better at accurate shooting. These are some NBA players with small hands.

Kwame Brown

Brown, a 6’11” center, was 6’11”. In 2001, the Washington Wizards drafted him at number 1. He was unimpressive, and is now considered one of the worst number-one draft picks.

He is not known for any major achievements and is most well-known for his inexplicable fumbling of the ball. He was famously unable to open his feet for a dunk. His small hands are believed to be the reason. These hands were small for a man of his stature. Although there were no official measurements, it is believed that he could not hold a basketball of regulation size.

Paul George

Paul George is 6’9″ tall and has very small hands. His hand length is only 8.5 inches, which is about 7% less than the average for his height. Victor Oladipo, despite being five inches longer than Paul George, has a longer handspan.

George’s nine-inch span is 8% shorter than the average. Paul is as tall as Kemba Walker (6’1″), and his hand span is amazing. His hands are not a problem. He is a six-time NBA All-Star, four-time All-NBA Team selection and a four-time member the NBA All-Defensive Team.

Kevin Durant

KD, although there isn’t an official measurement, has admitted that he can’t hold a basketball. This is quite controversial. He is 6’9″ and this is quite surprising. His hands are small for someone his size. His career has not suffered from this. He is a two-time NBA Champion and one of the best players in the league.

Charles Barkley

This 6’6″ monster didn’t let small hands stop him from winning the 1993 NBA Most Valuable Player Award. Charles Barkley claimed that he couldn’t hold a basketball in his hands. This is quite plausible considering that 99% of his dunks were done with two hands.

Moses Malone

Moses Malone, despite being 6’10”, had the hands of a 5ft 9″ man. Although he could hold the ball, he couldn’t control or dunk the ball like many small guards. Rockets coach Tom Nissalke gave him a series hand-stretching exercises similar to those for pianists. He was a three-time NBA best player and one the most skilled rebounders.

Anthony Bennett

Anthony Bennett is the most famous bust in NBA Draft history. Bennett admitted that his hands are too small for a basketball, which is quite surprising considering that he is the same height as LeBron.

Derrick Rose

It is no secret that Rose, the youngest MVP ever, is terrible at handling a basketball. Rose can do a lot of two-handed dunks. He may start with one hand and then release the other for the one-handed jam. Rose’s small hands can explain this. Rose doesn’t have to hold the ball in one hand to dunk. If you can reach as high as Rose, you can control and throw the ball.

Anthony Davis

Davis is 6’10” and has very small hands. They measured him at 9 inches and 8.5 inches respectively at the Draft Combine. He was a top prospect, but this was a concern in the draft.

It is interesting to see that Davis, despite being over a foot taller than Kay Felder, has the same length as Kay Felder. His hands are not a problem, however. He is a five-time All-Star, and one of the most prominent stars in the league.

Patrick Ewing

Patrick Ewing was almost 7’0″ tall and had very small hands. Ewing was able overcome the slight challenges presented by smaller hands. He is one the most important centers in NBA history, and he is also one of the best players to not win an NBA MVP.

Carmelo Anthony

In an interview, Carmelo Anthony said that one of his greatest secrets was the fact that he couldn’t hold a basketball. He is 6’8″ and this is quite remarkable. He is 6’8″ tall, which means that his hands are small for his height. However, Carmelo’s hands have not stopped him from being one the most prolific scorers of NBA history.

Rasheed Wallace

Rasheed Wallace is 6’11”, and his hands are very small. He could barely hold a basketball. Sheed was among the first men to enjoy shooting 3’s regularly. He might have been able to shoot so well for his small hands because of his small hands.
