I read today that he was 7'7" and only weighed 225 lbs. That's crazy, turn-to-the-side-and-you're-invisible-can't-stand-in-a-breeze skinny.

He was a great humanitarian, and even Charles Barkley said nice things about him.

I used to love watching him play back in the golden era of the NBA. An amazing player and humanitarian. RIP. :(

I don't remember him playing basketball but I do remember the hilarious skits on SNL about him.


Sounds like a cool bro.

I remember complaining as a kid that I had way too many duplicates of him when I used to collect cards. I remember 1 pack had 4 of them but it also had that guy from Charlotte that was good at the time.

I can't remember exactly but didn't he not need to jump when he dunked?

RIP.

I remember him clearly during his playing years. He had the height, but was so skinny that shorter guys could box him out easily.

that guy from Charlotte that was good at the time.

Larry Johnson ?
