Tallest and Shortest Players on Each NBA Team 2021-22

Most of us are but tiny, moral humanoids, trying each day to avoid being squashed by falling objects and projectiles. NBA players are behemoths whom roam the earth with size 15 shoes and custom-made shirts that are necessary for their alien arms. But even among the monsters, there are the tallest and shortest.

There are 30 teams in the NBA, and that means 30 tallest and 30 shortest players in total. Like we did last year, we’ve combed through the rosters and put together a full list of each NBA team’s tallest and shortest players (as of Oct. 12, 2021).
