Coming in at 6'5" and 260 pounds, according to the WWE, The Rock is by no stretch a small man, but pretty much everyone looks small when standing next to 7'9" basketball player Sun Ming Ming of China.

Ming Ming attempted to join the NBA in 2005 but went undrafted and has spent the last few years with the CBA's Beijing Ducks as one of Stephon Marbury's teammates.

The Rock doesn't mention how he met the enormous basketball player, but we can all hope that it was on the set of a new buddy cop movie.
