Things That Are Surprisingly Bigger Than You Probably Thought

The most amazing thing about the Guinness World Record book is that you say “wow” quite a bit. You have to appreciate what people are doing in the world, even if it means getting their name in some record book.

But, the best part of that book was the biggest things. Anything in that section would stand out like a sore thumb. These are the things that are much bigger than you and I.

An NBA Hall of Famer is beside an up-and-coming NBA prospect. Yao Ming, who stands at 7’6″, was a legend on the court during his time with the Houston Rockets. The day he was drafted, he was at home in China with his family.

For Markkanen, he’s already making a name for himself very early in his NBA career. The Finnish basketball player, who’slisted as a 7-footer, attended Arizona in 2016 as he would be drafted seventh overall by the Chicago Bulls in 2017.
