I believe Brittney Griner is the tallest female basketball player at 6'8". She is a freshman at Baylor. She's the one who punched a player and was suspended for only one or two games.
manute bol is the tallest one ever, but currently the tallest nba player is regan crocker at 9'9!! Actually it was Gheorghe Muresan who was the tallest player ever, at 7'7", and regan crocker isn't an NBA player, and the tallest man ever was 8'11", so he can't be 9'9". Unfortunately, Manute Bol died at 7'6".
The tallest female basketball player is Malgorzata Dydek she is 7'2", born in Poland.
