Best Answer

As of the 2008-09 season, that would be Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets who is listed by the NBA at the barefoot height of 7 feet, 6 inches (2.29 meters). The tallest players in the history of the NBA were Manute Bol and Gheorge Muresan, both listed by the NBA at the barefoot height of 7 feet, 7 inches (2.31 meters). Next come Yao and Shawn Bradley at 7 feet, 6 inches (2.29 meters) barefoot. NOTE: The NBA allows players to have their height listed either with or without shoes. There is no way of knowing, when seeing a player's height listed in statistics, whether this height is the barefoot height or 'with shoes' height.
