NBA players are probably the most gifted athletes in the world of sports. These men have privileged bodies that allow them to play in one of the hardest competitions in the world of sports night in and night out. You have to be gifted, as stated before, to play in the association and be successful in the league but some players take things to the next level.

Even among these elite athletes, we can find players who stand out over the rest thanks to some characteristics of their bodies. The hands are very important in the game of basketball and some NBA players have featured some huge claws in the history of the game. Today, however, we're going to take a look at the biggest hands seen in the NBA Draft combine. Most of the players on this list haven't had a prolific career in the association but they already left their mark on the game with those tools.

Big hands don't necessarily translate into a good NBA career but it certainly helps. Kawhi Leonard is the biggest proof of that as he is the best and most successful player on the list. He has made his 'claws' a trademark and his talents have taken him to the top of the league twice, having outstanding playoffs runs in recent seasons. However, it looks like Leonard is the only one with a good NBA career on this list, while the rest of the players will only be remembered by this list and nothing else.
