These are to scale using the basketball as the ground for scale:

I'd say the LA times has the sillhouettes pretty accurate - just because 1 dimension (length) looks closer than you'd expect doesn't mean Jordans hands wouldn't be visibly much larger in person, we're talking about a 3 dimensional object here not 1 dimensional. Using cubed law, if Jordans hands were 10% longer, and let's say 10-15% wider - plus 10% thicker than his hands would look 30-35% more massive than Kobe's. That sound about right to you?
