Basketball players are known for their towering statures and it seem to be a requirement to appear well-suited for the game. According to statistics by runrepeat, the average height in NBA is 6 feet 6 inhes(6'6"), which is equivalent to 1.98 meters, as a result most of them appear gigantic. Notable giant-looking basketball players includes Lebron James who stands 2.06m tall, Kevin Durant 2.08m and Tacko Fall, who is currently the tallest NBA player standing 2.26meters tall and it becomes very embarrassing to stand close to these individuals because you'll tend to look dwarflike.
That was the case when some diminutive footballers posed with basketball players to take pictures and they were almost mistaking as kids and dwarfs. Take a look their pictures.
Lionel Messi and Lebron James
The man considered to be the greatest of all time in football stands only 1.7 meters tall and when he posed for a picture with NBA star, LeBron James, Messi wasn't even up to the shoulder level of James.
Antonie Greizman and Kristap Porzingis
The French star is one of the fine footballers in Europe and stands 1.76 metres. He once took a picture with Latvian NBA player, Kristaps Porzingis and the height difference was jaw-dropping one.
Eden Hazard and Luka Doncic
Hazard posing with the Slovenian NBA star was pretty much like a father and son.
Neymar and Kevin Durant
The Brazilian was also mistaken to be a dwarf when he posed with the American NBA star.
