Default In today's era, would Robert Wadlow have been the GOAT?



Wadlow reached 8 ft 11.1 in in height and weighed 439 lb (199 kg) at his death at age 22.

Well he was born a little too early for the NBA, but he did dominate his fellow boy scouts.

GOAT at half court basketball, sure... but he wouldn't be able to run the full court
