Kanter is 6 ft. 11 in., Kosem is 8 ft. 3 in.
At 6 ft. 11 in., Turkish basketball player Enes Kanter is much taller than most regular people and more than a few of his NBA peers.
But if there’s anyone who can tower head and shoulders over the Oklahoma City Thunder center (literally), it’s his compatriot and the world’s tallest man Sultan Kosen.
The duo met at a school opening in an Atlanta suburb on Thursday, and a local reporter tweeted a picture of them standing side by side that really lays bare the difference in their heights.
At 8 ft. 3 in., Kosen would probably be near impossible to defend if he played in the NBA. Kanter, for one, is definitely open to the idea of having him as a teammate.
