Know all you need to know about NBA players who have the biggest feet in the game.

It has been more than 75 years since NBA started its journey. Ever since its inception, we have seen several records being made and several records being shattered on a yearly basis. We have also seen an array of athletes, who day in and day out challenges all the limits of existing physical boundaries.

In NBA, we witness great basketball players whose gameplay leaves behind an enormous legacy. Some of these legacies are quite untouchable. Similarly, apart from their game, some NBA players are known for their other records.

It can be said that most NBA players are physical freaks. Some have giant hands, some have large wingspans, while some have incredible vertical leaps. In this list of seemingly impossible physical features, the existence of giant feet of players is also included.

It is quite obvious that NBA players will not publicly declare or flaunt their feet size. But, when 7-foot-tall players run down the court while wearing shoes that are bigger than your forearm, the mind of one automatically questions what might be the foot size of the player.

In the list down below, let us know the 5 players who have the biggest feet in the NBA.
