Who is the heaviest NBA player ever? Lightest ever?
 
Who's the heaviest NBA player to ever play? And who's the lightest to ever play?

Earl Boykins was 60kg, so was Spud Webb.

Heaviest? Maybe Shaq? Or Priest Lauderdale. They have both the same weight on Wikipedia.

Well I'd imagine Shaq would have been the heaviest although Oliver Miller probably gave him a run for his money :lol

Lightest, given the extreme height difference to other players I'd say either Muggsy Bogues or Earl Boykins.

64kg. Earl and Spud are both listed as 60. Muggsy was a chunky little bastard.



He also had a bit of a booty lol.

Thomas Hamilton was signed by the Raptors, cut, then signed by the Celtics in the late 90's. Word on the street he was in the region of 400lbs.

Without ever verifying for sure, I would say Mahmoud Abdul Rauf (formerly Chris Jackson) weighed 150 lbs (as listed in 1994). He's definitely pretty light for his listed height of 6 foot 1. He became a vegetarian after converting.

Heaviest is Glen Davis. Again for his height, he looks extremely heavy.

I don't know where he ranks, but Oliver Miller has to be somewhere in this conversation.



Dude had skills though.

Lol just ask the Knicks....between eddy curry, Jerome James and Michael sweetney you can take your pick...the only thing more bloated than them is the contracts New York gave them

I think Shaq reached something like 340-350 lbs his final few years with LA. I'd have to go with him. For lightest, Spud Webb is listed as 133 lbs in basketball reference (in comparison, Bogues is listed at 136, Boykins at 135, Iverson at 165, Raouf at 162, Elliot Perry at 150).

Hot Plate Williams was pretty fat and so was Duckworth towards the end of his career.

Dexter Pittman was >400 pounds before his rookie year I think
