NBA player Rajon Rondo has a wingspan of 81 inches (6 feet 9 inches). The Boston Celtics guard boasts this incredible wingspan despite standing only 6 feet 1 inch, presenting a tough matchup to opposing players at his position.

Playing alongside stars Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, Rondo's outstanding play helped lead the Celtics to the 2007-08 NBA Championship. His wingspan greatly benefits his defensive ability most; as of 2014, Rondo has been nominated twice to both the NBA All-Defensive First and Second Teams. His long reach also helped him capture the 2009-10 steals crown, and he led the league in assists in back-to-back seasons in 2011-12 and 2012-13.
