Yeah, the examples are for shits and giggles...you can substitute their names for any of the cream of the crop in MLB/NFL/NBA.
Still though...Kobe or Lebron running at full speed & stride and having 10" to almost a full foot over some soccer players- nightmare.
Tim Howard's wingspan is 194.88cm. Dwight Howard's is 225cm. That is a whole foot in extra reach.
