Above players were the only players that Russ faced in 1957-58 that were were 6'10" or taller that played at least 1100 minutes that season. 1100 minutes places a player in the top 7or 8 players on a teams roster in terms of minutes played. Notice the terrible fg% for those players. And that was back in the days of the 12' lane, when a player standing just outside the lane, with just 1 step toward the basket had an easy dunk or lay-up.

Here are the weights for those 4 players. Dukes- 220

Felix- 215

Share-235

Russell-215

I used the 2nd year of their careers because Russell played considerably less than a full season his 1st year. Also note that there were only 8 teams in 1957-58.
