    Default Dr. J has bigger hands than Jordan





    Damn...Jordan's hand doesn't go all the way around but the Dr. just engulfs his. Can't think of a perimeter player with comparable hand size except maybe Connie Hawkins and Leonard.

    Pippen had huge hands, don't know if they were bigger than Jordan's though.

    I'm wondering how big Pippen's hands were.

    Yeah, I think the Dr. was something like 12" from the base of the palm to the tip of the middle finger, while MJ was like 10.5". You can also tell from game footage that Dr. J palms the ball even easier than Jordan did.

    Connie Hawkins, Wilt Chamberlain, Julius Erving, Wayne Embry are 4 players with the biggest hands likely in league history. MJ likely has the biggest hands of any guard in history.
    Shaq's hands are up there...and vonleh and leonard seem to have hands in at least the same range as the dr. I wouldn't be surprised if Magic has bigger hands than Jordan.

    Vince Carter...another guy with huge hands. I think McGrady's are bigger though.

    Just measured mine at 8". it's funny to look at what 12 would be.. It's unreal.

    There's a similar printout of Dr J's hand out there but I haven't seen it online.

    Doc did have huge hands but hand strength also plays a role in palming a ball.

    I could palm a basketball but broke both my hands in a motorcycle accident & palming a b is far more difficult .I barely can although I rarely play ball anymore

    Remember C-Webb saying that Doc was the only player he had seen with bigger hands than himself.
