The wingspan of basketball player LeBron James is 7 feet and one-fourth inches. This indicates that when his arms are fully extended at his sides, the distance between his fingertip to fingertip is 4 inches longer than his height of 6 feet 8 inches.
Basketball and football players prefer to have a wing spread that is especially large. By possessing longer arms, these athletes have a larger reach in both defensive and offensive scenarios, allowing them to execute plays that less physically endowed athletes are unable of. Enhanced reach can also compensate for limitations in jumping ability. LeBron James appears to take advantage of this edge, as he is renowned for his ability to dunk and block shots.
