I would say, most Basketball players get to live between the age of 65 -70 years old. comparing to the average men who get to live between 72 - 77. And this is due in the difference in height, the taller you are the shortest your life span would be. Most people whom get the chance to live into the hundreds aren't taller than 5'5"Ft . When have someone seen an 100 year old person over 6'0" ft. The average men in height in the USA is around 5'9" ft. Comparing to the average height of a basketball player which is around 6'6" ft.

There are multiple theories regarding height and life expectancy. Evidence suggests that elevated levels of growth hormone and insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), present in taller people, accelerate aging and cancer risk. There is substantial evidence that this risk can be mitigated though diet (plant based diet, moderate protein, limited or no meat and dairy), and when done, tall people can live as long or longer than anyone else.
