Top 5 Shoe Sizes in the NBA
It is well known that basketball players are very tall. The average length of a ‘normal’ man is 1,70m, while the average NBA player is about 2,08m. This is almost a 40 cm difference! You would expect that those players also have bigger feet than most people, and they do. But which players have the biggest feet of all in the NBA.

3. Robin and Brook Lopez
They always say that twins are alike, and in this case that is definitely true. Besides being one of the few brothers in the NBA, they are exactly the same height (2,13m) and they have the same shoe size, 54. That is what you call real twins.
