Rondo is definitely a freak specimen with his hands and wingspan. It's exactly what allows him to have nearly quadruple double games. It's why he can have 15+ rebounding games unlike any other 6'0 PG in NBA history. It also helps him tremendously defensively. Another way it helps is all the crazy scoop finishes he makes in the lane, even in traffic. Huge hands+wingspan mean your shot is way less likely to get blocked if you know what you're doing.

I am 6'2 with 6'9 wingspan, that's not bad I guess, or is it quite normal ?

. I'm jealous. I'm 5'11 with a 6'1 wingspan... so I'm short armed like Blake Griffin I guess. You're basically the same specs as Eric Gordon. If you get an incredibly strong build for slashing to the hoop and a 40 inch vert... we'll see you in the NBA .
