The 24 Most Incredible Ape Indices in NBA History

Updated on November 3, 2019

I love writing about sports, particularly about NBA players.

Legend has it that Kevin McHale, one of the best power forwards of all time who stood at 6'10", had one of the longest wingspans in NBA history at almost 8’0”.

The significance of wingspan in the NBA goes way back to the early beginnings of the sport. Legend has it that Kevin McHale, one of the best power forwards of all time who stood at 6'10", had one of the longest wingspans in NBA history at almost 8’0” and could literally touch his knees without bending down. His enormous wingspan made him a holy terror near the hoop on both offense and defense. However, several sources have confirmed that McHale’s true wingspan is more likely around 7’5”, which is still pretty outrageous considering his height.

Ape index measures your wingspan relative to your height. A common method of calculation is having the height subtracted from the wingspan. Normally, the average reach of a person usually correlates with his or her height, which gives a neutral size ratio. However, most NBA players have a wingspan that is significantly longer than their height. The average wingspan of an NBA player is usually 4” longer than a normal man their height, giving most players a positive ape index of 4". This is not to say basketball increases one’s reach. It just happens that longer armed humans have an advantage in basketball and hence tend to go on to the NBA, but this is not absolute.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to appreciate the importance of wingspan in basketball. The longer your wingspan is, the easier it is to dunk without needing a time-consuming gather. It's also easier to keep your dribble low to the ground in traffic, block shots, contest shots without even having to leave your feet, get steals, and guard someone taller than you.

It comes as no surprise that a good percentage of the best players in history have been blessed with incredible wingspans. Of course, there are exceptions like JJ Reddick and Yao Ming who have been able to do relatively well in the NBA despite having slightly shorter wingspans for their heights.

Though not in the NBA, BeeJay Anya holds the record for the highest ape index of any known basketball player. He is 6’9” with a ridiculous 7’9” wingspan giving him a +12 ape index.

It's one thing having a long wingspan and another thing being able to make full use of it. At 6'9", former Indiana Pacers player Rakeem Christmas has an unbelievable wingspan of 7’5”. His ape index is a whopping +8 inches. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to take full advantage of it in the NBA.

Being tall usually comes with a long wingspan. It’s not surprising that that the longest wingspan officially measured in the NBA belongs to one of the tallest players in NBA history, Tacko Fall. Fall stands at 7’7” in shoes and has a wingspan that measures a staggering 8' 2.25". However, this is not always the case. A good example is Cody Zeller of the Charlotte Hornets who, despite standing at 7’0”, has a 6’10” wingspan. Zeller has a negative ape index of 2 inches.

There are also cases of basketball players with extraordinary wingspans for their heights. At 6’9”, BeeJay Anya holds the record for longest wingspan recorded for a non-7-foot player in the NBA Draft Express database for basketball prospects, with a wingspan of 7'9". His wingspan is a whole foot greater than his height, giving him a +12 ape index, the highest of any known basketball player. Beejay also holds the NC State record for most blocked shots in a single game and this can be attributed to his outrageous length.

Former OSU player Dallas Lauderdale didn’t play in the NBA but he holds the record for the highest ape index officially recorded at the NBA Combine. He stands at 6'7.5" and has a 7'6.5" wingspan, giving him an incredible +11 ape index. We take a look at some players with the highest ape indices to ever play in the NBA. These players even have higher ape indices than some freaks like Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis.

Bol’s wingspan measures a staggering 8’6” which is unofficially the longest in the history of the NBA.
Bol’s wingspan measures a staggering 8’6” which is unofficially the longest in the history of the NBA.

Manute Bol (Ape Index: +11.0")

Manute Bol is one of the best shot blockers in the history of American basketball. During his rookie season, this 7’7” giant led the league with five blocks per game. He went on to lead the league in that category once more, and then finished up with 3.3 blocks per game on average despite playing only 18.7 minutes per game.

Bol’s wingspan measures a staggering 8’6”, which is unofficially the longest in the history of the NBA. It should come as no surprise where he gets his shot-blocking prowess from. His wingspan is a whopping 15 inches longer than the average center in the NBA and he stands at 8 inches taller than the average center. Tacko Fall’s wingspan is 4 inches shorter than Manute Bol’s despite standing at roughly the same height.

Bruno Caboclo was recently signed by the Grizzlies.
Bruno Caboclo was recently signed by the Grizzlies.

Bruno Caboclo (Ape Index: +10.0")

Bruno Caboclo was recently signed by the Grizzlies after not enjoying much playing time with the Toronto Raptors. He is still pretty young with his best basketball ahead of him. Some believe the Toronto Raptors picked Bruno in the 2014 NBA draft solely based on his length, which is quite understandable considering he has a wingspan that measures a staggering 7’7”. Caboclo has the same wingspan as Shaq despite standing 4 inches shorter.

At 6’9”, Bruno is as tall as the average power forward in the NBA. However, one of his most intriguing characteristics is that his wingspan is 4 inches longer than the average center in the NBA despite standing significantly shorter than the average center. Paul George’s wingspan is a whopping 8 inches shorter than Bruno’s despite standing at the same height.

Mohamed Bamba has the second longest wingspan officially measured in the NBA after Tacko Fall.
Mohamed Bamba has the second longest wingspan officially measured in the NBA after Tacko Fall.

Mohamed Bamba (Ape Index: +9.0")

Mo Bamba, the sixth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, is best known for his ability to protect the rim and play stifling defense. In a group full of long, tall people, Bamba still stands out with an insane wingspan of 7-foot-10 that allows for court coverage the likes of which hasn't been seen.

Standing at 7'1" and with a wingspan of 7’10”, Bamba has a significant physical advantage over the average center in the NBA. He is 2" taller than the 6'11" average and his wingspan is an outrageous 7" longer than the average center’s of 7’3”.

His ape index is +9,'' and he has the second-longest wingspan officially measured in the NBA after Tacko Fall. It is also interesting to note that Shaq’s wingspan is 3” shorter than Bamba’s despite standing at exactly the same height.

Talen Horton-Tucker is one of the youngest and most uniquely versatile prospects to ever enter the NBA.
Talen Horton-Tucker is one of the youngest and most uniquely versatile prospects to ever enter the NBA.

Talen Horton-Tucker (Ape Index: +9.0")

Talen Horton-Tucker is one of the youngest and most uniquely versatile prospects to ever enter the NBA in a long time. Horton-Tucker played at Simeon Career Academy where he helped the Wolverines to three-straight City Championships.

At 6’4”, Talen stands an inch below the average height of a shooting guard in the NBA. In contrast, he has an incredible wingspan of 7’1.25. This gives him a 5" reach advantage over the average. He has a positive ape index of 9" and possesses one of the longest wingspans for a shooting guard in the NBA. Talen Horton-Tucker’s wingspan is 2 inches longer than John Wall’s despite standing at the same height. With a wingspan of 6’9, Wall has some pretty long arms for his height as well.

On January 5, 2019, Bismack Biyombo scored a season-high 16 points in a 123–110 loss to the Denver Nuggets.
On January 5, 2019, Bismack Biyombo scored a season-high 16 points in a 123–110 loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Bismack Biyombo (Ape Index: +9.0")

Bismack Biyombo is a proven shot-blocking force. It’s not every day that you come across a 6’9 center but Bismarck Biyombo is no ordinary 6’9” guy. His length is absurd and this makes a huge difference on the defensive end of the floor.

Biyombo stands 2 inches shorter than the average center in the NBA but his two best attributes are rebounding and rim protection and this is due to his insane wingspan of 7’6”. He is able to compensate for his lack of height with his outrageous wingspan which remarkably is 3 inches longer than the average NBA center. Bismarck has a longer wingspan than Yao Ming despite Ming towering over him by a whopping 9 inches.

Reggie Jackson helped lead the Pistons to the playoffs in 2016 for the first time in almost a decade.
Reggie Jackson helped lead the Pistons to the playoffs in 2016 for the first time in almost a decade.

Reggie Jackson (Ape Index: +9.0")

Reggie Jackson together with Andre Drummond led the Pistons to the playoffs in 2016 for the first time in almost a decade. Unfortunately, injuries have prevented this guard from living up to his true potential. Reggie is physical blessed and can stand toe to toe with any point guard in the league when healthy.

The remarkable thing about Reggie is that despite standing at the average height of a point guard in the NBA, his wingspan is equivalent to the average of a power forward. You will only find a few people on this planet who are 6’3” and have a 7’0” wingspan and Reggie Jackson is one of them. It’s really mind-blowing that Reggie has a longer wingspan than Blake Griffin despite being 7 inches shorter.

Jason Maxiell was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the 26th overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft.
Jason Maxiell was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the 26th overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft.

Jason Maxiell (Ape Index: +9.0")

Jason Maxiell has one of the craziest wingspans to height ratios in the history of the NBA. He is listed at 6’7” but was measured at 6'6.25" in shoes and so he is actually pretty close to 6’6”. This makes his 7'3.25" wingspan even more impressive. Maxiell is one of the few players in NBA history whose wingspans exceed their heights by at least 9 inches.

He is significantly shorter than the average power forward in the NBA but compensates for this with his outrageous length. At just 6’6”, he possesses the average wingspan of a center in the NBA. Jason Maxiell has the same wingspan as All-NBA center Nikola Jokic despite being half a foot shorter than Jokic.

James Lang played for the Washington Wizards.
James Lang played for the Washington Wizards.

James Lang (Ape Index: +9.0")

I’m pretty sure even hardcore NBA fans haven’t heard of James Lang. He played briefly in the NBA for the Washington Wizards and was truly a mutant. At 6’9”, Lang possessed an outrageous wingspan of 7’6”. The only player who can boast of similar measurements is the freak Bismack Biyombo.

Few centers in the NBA come close to the wingspan of Lang and this is astonishing considering Lang stood at the average height of a power forward in the NBA. Lang has roughly the same wingspan as DeMarcus Cousins despite being significantly shorter than Cousins.

Elton Brand was selected with the first overall pick in the 1999 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls.
Elton Brand was selected with the first overall pick in the 1999 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls.

Elton Brand (Ape Index: +8.5")

A two-time NBA All-Star (2002, 2006), Elton Brand was picked first overall in the 1999 draft by the Chicago Bulls after a stellar two-year college career at Duke University. At 6'9", Elton Brand has always played much bigger than his height—averaging 1.9 blocks for his career and this was due to his large wingspan which measures an unbelievable 7'5.5". That’s close to 9 inches greater than his height.

This former Chicago Bulls power forward’s wingspan is close to 3 inches longer than the average center in the NBA. Brand has the same wingspan as Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez despite Brook being 3 inches taller.

Alonzo Mourning won the Defensive Player of the Year award twice.
Alonzo Mourning won the Defensive Player of the Year award twice.

Alonzo Mourning (Ape Index: +8.5")

Alonzo Mourning is a perfect example of a player in the NBA that highlighted the importance of wingspan, especially on the defensive end. He stood at 6’10” which is quite small for an NBA center but won multiple Defensive Player of the Year awards and led the league in blocks for half of his career.

He was able to accomplish this remarkable feat partly because of his incredible 7'6.5” wingspan. He also wasn't an explosive leaper, which further highlighted the importance of his giant wingspan. Astonishingly, Tyson Chandler’s wingspan is 3.5 inches shorter than Mourning’s despite Chandler being 3 inches taller.

Sene first played for the Senegal national basketball team during the 2013 AfroBasket.
Sene first played for the Senegal national basketball team during the 2013 AfroBasket.

Mouhamed Sene (Ape Index: +8.5")

Saer Sene period in the NBA was short but no one can dispute the fact that he was a genetic freak. Standing at 7’0”, he possessed a wingspan of 7’8.5 inches. His wingspan exceeded his height by almost 9 inches. Only a few centers in the NBA can match up to the wingspan of Sene. Remarkably, Roy Hibbert’s wingspan is almost 5 inches shorter than Sene’s despite being 2 inches taller.

 Rondo, a four-time NBA All-Star, had led the league in assists per game three times (2012, 2013, and 2016).
Rondo, a four-time NBA All-Star, had led the league in assists per game three times (2012, 2013, and 2016).

Rajon Rondo (Ape Index: +8.0")

Rajon Rondo is a true freak of nature and is one of the best point guards in the NBA. He has one of the biggest hands of any point guard in the NBA. And that’s not the only remarkable thing about this elite player. At only 6’1”, his wingspan measures a ridiculous 6’9”.

Rondo astonishingly is equipped with the average wingspan of a shooting guard despite standing below the average height of a point guard in the NBA. His ape index of +8 inches is one of the highest in the NBA. Amazingly, Rondo’s wingspan is almost 6 inches longer than Stephen Curry’s despite being shorter.

Okogie plays for the Nigerian national basketball team, and participated in the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
Okogie plays for the Nigerian national basketball team, and participated in the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Josh Okogie (Ape Index: +8.0")

Josh Okogie is known for his energy and his remarkable defensive ability. He rose to fame was when he blocked James Harden’s dreaded step-back 3-pointer and his unbelievable wingspan of 7’0” definitely helped him defend Harden’s unstoppable move.

Okogie’s wingspan of 7’0” is really astonishing if you consider the fact that he stands at 6’4”. His wingspan is way above the average for a shooting guard in the NBA despite standing slightly shorter than the average shooting guard. Harden’s wingspan is 2 inches shorter than Okogie’s despite Harden been slightly taller.

In 2012, Montrezl Harrell was a member of the United States team at the FIBA Americas Under-18 Championship that won Gold in São Sebastião do Paraíso, Brazil.
In 2012, Montrezl Harrell was a member of the United States team at the FIBA Americas Under-18 Championship that won Gold in São Sebastião do Paraíso, Brazil.

Montrezl Harrell (Ape Index: +8.0")

Montrezl Harrell is one of the best bench players in the league. Harrell is a physical competitor with a high motor and a deep passion for winning. He is extremely athletic and highly explosive as a player. While Harrell lacks the height for his position, a 7'4" wingspan makes up for his disadvantage with length.

He has a positive ape index of 8 inches and possesses a longer wingspan than the average for a center in the NBA despite standing below the average height of a power forward. It’s interesting to note that despite standing at the same height as Harrell, Lebron Jame’s wingspan is 4 inches shorter.

Ike Anigbogu last played for the Indiana Pacers.
Ike Anigbogu last played for the Indiana Pacers.

Ike Anigbogu (Ape Index: +8.0")

Ike Anigbogu didn’t enjoy much success in the NBA when he played as a center for the Indiana Pacers. However, that doesn’t dispute the fact that he is one of the most interesting physical specimens to be seen on the court.

At 6’10, he is quite shorter than the average NBA center but he compensates for this with his ridiculous wingspan of 7’6”. Only a few centers in the NBA have ever been blessed with a wingspan that length. Al Horford’s wingspan is almost half a foot shorter than Anigbogu’s despite standing around the same height as Anigbogu.

Kawhi Leonard is the first person to win Finals MVP with a team from each conference.
Kawhi Leonard is the first person to win Finals MVP with a team from each conference.

Kawhi Leonard (Ape Index: +8.0")

Defensively, Kawhi Leonard is arguably the greatest defender in the NBA. Standing 6’7" with a ridiculous 7’3" wingspan, he is nearly a perfect basketball specimen. Kawhi’s length and versatility allow him to defend point-guards to forwards, and everything in between.

He is the only non-center to ever win Defensive Player of the Year, twice and this is not a coincidence. Kawhi’s is blessed with the average wingspan of a center in the NBA despite standing at the average height of a small forward giving him a combination of length and athleticism which is hard to find. It’s shocking that Marc Gasol’s wingspan is only an inch longer than Kawhi’s despite being half a foot taller.

Rodrigue Beaubois is the first rookie in NBA history to shoot at least 50 percent from the floor.
Rodrigue Beaubois is the first rookie in NBA history to shoot at least 50 percent from the floor.

Rodrigue Beaubois (Ape Index: +8.0")

This French professional basketball player is built like a point guard but amazingly has the wingspan of a small forward. He is truly a genetic freak and is one of the few 6’2” players in the world who can boast of a 6’10” wingspan. Beaubois’ wingspan is 2 inches longer than Jimmy Butler’s. Amazingly, Butler is 6 inches taller than Beaubois. Tony Parker also stands at the same height as Rodrigue Beaubois but can only boast of a wingspan of 6’4”.

Will Solomon played for the Grizzlies in the 2001–02 season.
Will Solomon played for the Grizzlies in the 2001–02 season.

Will Solomon (Ape Index: +8.0")

Will Solomon didn’t make any significant impact whilst he was in the NBA but he definitely deserves to be on this list due to his mind blowing measurements. Standing at only 6’1”, his wingspan extends almost to 6’10”. Solomon stands significantly shorter than the average point guard in the NBA but has arms that almost rival that of the average NBA’s small forward. You get to appreciate the freakiness of Will Solomon when you realise he has a slightly longer wingspan than Klay Thompson despite Klay being half a foot taller.

On May 14, 2012 the NBA announced that MarShon Brooks finished 10th in the Rookie of the Year voting with 4 total points. The winner was Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving.
On May 14, 2012 the NBA announced that MarShon Brooks finished 10th in the Rookie of the Year voting with 4 total points. The winner was Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving.

MarShon Brooks (Ape Index: +8.0")

Marshon Brooks has one of the highest ape indices in the history of the NBA. His wingspan is a whopping 8 inches greater than his height and is one of the few basketball players blessed with a 7’1”wingspan despite standing at only 6’5”.

Brooks stands at the average height of a shooting guard in the NBA but his wingspan is equivalent to the average of a power forward. It’s interesting to note that Marshon Brooks’ wingspan is 2 inches longer than Kevin Love’s despite Love being almost 5 inches taller.

On June 25, 2015, Rakeem Christmas was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 36th overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft.
On June 25, 2015, Rakeem Christmas was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 36th overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft.

Rakeem Christmas (Ape Index: +8.0")

With a positive ape index of 8 inches, Rakeem Christmas is one of the very few players to ever play in the NBA whose wingspans exceed their heights by at least 8 inches. He is truly an anomaly even though he had a short stint in the NBA. At 6’9”, his wingspan is absurd at 7’5”. He’s longer than most current centers in the NBA despite standing at the height of an average power forward. It’s pretty insane that Rakeem has a longer wingspan than 7’0” Karl-Anthony Towns.

In September 2013, Ajinça represented the French national team at EuroBasket 2013 in Slovenia.
In September 2013, Ajinça represented the French national team at EuroBasket 2013 in Slovenia.

Alexis Ajinça (Ape Index: +8.0")

Alexis Ajinca’s wingspan reached almost 7’9” despite standing around 7’1”. His ape index of +8 inches is one of the highest in NBA history. He is also one of the few players in NBA history whose wingspan exceeds 7’8”. Surprisingly, Alexis Ajinca’s wingspan is almost 3 inches longer than Kristaps Porzingis’ despite Porzingis being 2 inches taller.

On December 8, 2007, Howard scored a career high 47 points against the Utah Jazz.
On December 8, 2007, Howard scored a career high 47 points against the Utah Jazz.

Josh Howard (Ape Index: +8.0")

This Forgotten Mavericks' Star has one of the highest ape indices in NBA history. Josh Howard’s wingspan measures 7’2” but remarkably he stands at just 6’6”. Howard is truly an outlier and not many NBA players his height have their wings exceeding 6’10”. The great Michael Jordan stands at this height and his wingspan is 6’11”.

Chalmers was named the 2006–07 Co-Defensive Player of the Year and the Most Outstanding Player of the 2008 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.
Chalmers was named the 2006–07 Co-Defensive Player of the Year and the Most Outstanding Player of the 2008 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.

Mario Chalmers (Ape Index: +8.0")

This former Miami Heat player has one of the longest wingspans for a point guard despite being on the slightly shorter side for a point guard at 6’2”. Mario Chalmers set numerous records for steals in college and in his rookie year in the NBA and his mind-blowing wingspan that stretches to 6’10” definitely helped him achieve this. It is quite stunning that Kyrie Irving’s wingspan is half a foot shorter than Chalmers’ despite Kyrie being slightly taller.

Frazier was drafted by the Orlando Magic with the 35th overall selection in the 2018 NBA draft.
Frazier was drafted by the Orlando Magic with the 35th overall selection in the 2018 NBA draft.

Melvin Frazier (Ape Index: +8.0")

Orlando Magic's player, Melvin Frazier, has a really ridiculous wingspan for his height. The average wingspan for a 6’6” player in the NBA is around 6’10”. Frazier stands at this height but his wingspan is an astonishing 7’2”. His wingspan is pretty close to the average of a center in the NBA despite standing around the average height of an NBA shooting guard. Lebron James stands two inches taller than Melvin Fraizer but surprisingly Lebron’s wingspan is two inches shorter.
