Default Athletes with the biggest hands?

I've heard about Johnny Bench's huge hands. Are there any other athletes that had very large hands?

I know Michael Jordan had huge hands. He had hands the size of a man that would be 7'9, and it was one of the reasons why he was so dominant.

Default Huge Hands

I met NFL quarterback Doug Williams at the Atlanta National in 1992. I shook his hand, and my hand disappeared in the grip. No wonder he could sling the ball! Trent King

Default Rodman

Had a photo op with Dennis Rodman. I'm 6'3", 220lbs at that time. When I shook his hand it was huge, but that wasn't what blew my mind. I looked down at his hand and his nails were painted neon green (Must have done it himself... Tacky-Tacky).
It just didn't seem right. It took me a few seconds to adjust and digest the moment.

From all of Rodman's stunts, including wearing a wedding dress, you are blown away by green fingernail polish?! LOL

Its a little different seeing things in magazines and on TV.
Actually shaking his big tattooed colored nail hand in person, brought an unexpected perspective to my experience. He is just a different kind of guy when up close and personal.

That's cool. It's always nice when I have experiences like that which change my perspective.

I shook hands with Frank Howard once. His hands were huge and almost twice mine. I don't have small hands either.
