    It's funny because I was watching yesterday, and they said some other guy had the largest hands. Didn't give Royce credit for that.

    On another note, is it hand width from thumb to pinky? If so, then I have larger hands than Anthony Davis and that's ******* sad. He has like 10 inches on me!

    Royce had the largest hand width, not length, that's probably what they were talking about.

    Yeah. I just remember that news broadcast (KCCI?) where they said Royce's hands from pinky to thumb were about 12 inches long. The measurements here say 11.5" so I assumed it was that. It makes sense, because when you palm the ball, you're spreading your hand out pinky to thumb.

    Also, you can look at historical measurements, and Royce has the biggest hands on record...although interesting to note that Justin Hamilton's hands are 11.25" (HAHA)

    So, if he has the largest hands at the combine, does that also mean he has the largest...feet?

    A full half inch? That sounds like something Bob Uecker would say.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    I shook his hand once. My hand disappeared for a brief second, it was the wildest thing.

    To be fair to Anthony Davis, hand width is measured (with a tailor's tape) like this:
    While hand length is measured like this:

    Having said that I have wider hands than Anthony Davis, but everyone in the draft has longer hands than I do.
