In the NBA, the 6’ mark seems to be about the bare minimum that players need to be in order to earn minutes at all. Beyond that, there are several giants standing around 7’ tall.
Boasting tremendous size, these players will help you find success with their height, wingspan, and ability to see over the opposition.
So, here are the tallest players in NBA 2K21, just in case you need to add a tremendous physical presence to your roster.
Tacko Fall (7’5’’)
Team: Boston Celtics
Best Stats: 85 Standing Dunk, 82 Defensive Rebound, 80 Block
Tacko Fall had a monster impact in college as a physical giant. However, he went undrafted in the NBA as teams didn’t see much potential outside of his height.
He was later able to find a spot on the Boston Celtics’ roster, but will still need to improve in to find success in the league.
NBA 2K21 players can benefit from Fall’s in-game abilities, as his 85 standing dunk, 82 defensive rebound, and 80 block make him an above-average interior player at both ends of the court.
Additionally, his 80 overall durability will allow you to let Fall bang around inside.
Boban Marjanovic (7’4’’)
Team: Dallas Mavericks
Best Stats: 95 Standing Dunk, 90 Defensive Rebound, 87 Offensive Rebound
Boban Marjanovic is famously known for his ability to dunk and block players while standing flat-footed around the net.
He is somewhat of a veteran in the league, coming over from Serbia in his late 20s and proving himself to be an extremely efficient backup center.
With his 95 standing dunk, 90 defensive rebound, and 87 offensive rebound, NBA 2K21 players should consider the Mavericks center as being elite-grade in the paint.
Unlike many centers, the 2007 FIBA Under-19s World Cup winner also has a 77 free throw and 70 draw foul, enabling him to capitalize on the shorter players that may resort to fouling him.
Kristaps Porzingis (7’3’’)
Team: Dallas Mavericks
Best Stats: 98 Offensive Consistency, 98 Shot IQ, 98 Hands
Kristaps Porzingis is a multi-talented player with both length and shooting touch. Nicknamed the “Unicorn,” Porzingis had his career growth stunted by a serious lower-body injury.
He has since found his way to the Dallas Mavericks to play with a fellow young stud, Luka Doncic. The two look to make a formidable duo for years to come.
As one of the league’s elite interior youngsters, Kristaps’ 98 offensive consistency, 98 shot IQ, and 98 hands attributes are not exaggerated in the slightest.
His 90 standing dunk and 83 three-point shot go to show that he may be one of the more problematic players to guard at all ranges of the court.
Luke Kornet (7’2’’)
Team: Chicago Bulls
Best Stats: 90 Intangibles, 98 Shot IQ, 85 Hands
Luke Kornet is an unusual player for his size. He is a reliable rim protector but plays more on the perimeter on offense.
Going undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft, Kornet found his way into the league via the New York Knicks, going on to sign for the Chicago Bulls.
While his best attributes of 90 intangibles, 98 shot IQ, and 85 hands don’t describe the full picture of what Kornet brings to NBA 2K21, adding in his 83 free throw, 70 three-point shot, and 77 close range showcases that he’s a three-level threat.
Bol Bol (7’2’’)
Team: Denver Nuggets
Best Stats: 86 Block, 80 Stamina, 85 Intangibles
Bol Bol was a monster in the early part of his sole year in college, but had the season ended early due to injury. The son of former NBA player Manute Bol, many expect Bol Bol to find success in the near future.
This up-and-coming player shows some youthful potential with his 86 block, 80 stamina, and 85 intangibles, but also shows potential at several scoring levels, as shown by his 78 close shot, 79 mid-range shot, and 77 three-point shot.
After passing the rock to Bol Bol, feel free to exploit defenses all over the court, especially as the Sudanese center moves closer to his 83 potential rating.
