PHOTO: Yao Ming dwarfs regular-sized guy sitting next to him

You already knew that former NBA player Yao Ming, who stands at 7-foot-6 inches tall, was much larger than other humans. But the below photo, taken at the NBA All-Star Game, is absolutely ridiculous. Yao’s hand is the size of the smaller guy’s entire head.  The size-difference here is incredible. pic.twitter.com/lz5PmpBkrm — Kami Mattioli (@kmattio) February 17, 2014

Yao Ming is slightly taller than J.J. Watt

J.J. Watt is by no means a small man. In fact he is a very large fella and clocks in at a solid 6′ 5″, 295 lbs. However, perceptual contrast is everything especially when you take a photograph of him standing next to 7′ 6″ Yao Ming. This is a great photo but it doesn’t compare to Yao’s time in Africa or him playing golf. Great lunch with @yaoming today. Have a feeling...
