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.

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".
