It's so strange when you see these guys on TV and then in person. On TV, they look like normal (sized)

There's just nothing normal-looking about a human being over 7 ft. tall, I'm sorry....
I once saw Kareem Abdul Jabaar step out of a van in downtown Cleveland. I felt like I was observing an alien from another planet. I was in complete awe...
