Artis Gilmore was 7'6" with his 'fro, 7'2" without.
While other ABA players wavered with their commitment to a huge afro, Gilmore's hair remained the same from his rookie year (1971-72) through the last year of the ABA (1975-76).
Few ABA opponents ventured into the lane to attempt a layup against Gilmore and his legendary afro.
