Shawn Bradley ‘The Enormous Mormon’

Shawn Bradley is 7’6″ tall, and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, hence the nicknames ‘The Enormous Mormon’ and ‘The Storming Mormon’.

Bradley was selected with the No.2 overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1993 NBA Draft, and due to his size he quickly became the target of players trying to dunk on him or posterize him.

Despite not living up to the enormous expectations as a No.2 overall pick, Bradley had a long 14-year career in the NBA, and he was consistently one of the leading shot blockers in the league.
