He shouldn`t play in the NBA, because you need to have some sort of athleticism or endurance, even if you ARE 8`5. I highly doubt he could handle the strain of running up and down the court.

with that kind of reach, this guy could be a great boxer, except the strain from actually boxing would probably lead to a short career :(

well, bluedaisy11, Robert Wadlow didnt have a foot problem, he just had little feeling on his legs. His leg brace fit wrong, and he didnt know it was cutting and hurting his leg until it became infected. And, ironically, i believe penicillin was developed shortly after he died.

Yeah I saw the TLC special too, he works on a farm and doesn`t want any public attention. I guess he just had to see if he was the tallest though :)

I saw a special about him on TLC. On the show, they said that he has Gigantism(not Giantism). Gigantism is a disease that happens when a tumour grows under your pituitary gland and produces excess amounts of human growth hormone. He was first examined by a doctor when he was 14. That was the first time he had been to a hospitial. He first went there because he had massive headaches. After, that, he never saw a doctor again until the show sent him to be medically examined again. At that point in time he was 36 years old and after the tests were performed, it was revealed that his tumour had destroyed itself and he would not grow anymore.

Her head comes to his crotch.... There`s just too many jokes with this one.
And I like his clothes. They look normal, whoever made them didn`t make him look freaky (well, more so).

Lmaooo how manyy funny comments are there??

You can`t just diagnose somebody with "Giantism" by looking at them. It requires medical tests involving measures of hormone levels or CT/MRI scans. He may have the physical `signs` of it, but from this article alone you can`t say he has it, or even worse, suggest that he`ll die in 20 odd years. That`s just sick.

"The guy has disproportionately long fingers, it`s giantism. It`s very unhealthy and some parts grow larger than others.
He`d be lucky to live to 40" You say that as if he can help being "unhealthy"

Wow. The tallest man ever was 8`11.. he died really young, because of a foot problem. So yes, it strains your feet and your whole body.


yea, if i remember right (from ripley`s) it was his shoes`, that were specially made, nails that poked holes into his feet, they got infected, and because his legs were so long, circulation is poor, so they couldnt heal or something, and the infection got worse and worse until he was pushing up daises

willow, I said he has giantism. The deformities are hard to spot but having very long fingers is the most common sign.
There`s basically no such thing as a person whose 8 feet tall and doesn`t have giantism.
