Here are the list of Basketball Players in the Philippines who stands more than the average height of a center (6'7''). Over the years the Pinoy height is improving from early years 6'4 was considered to be a Giant but now we have bigger guys who stands over 6'8'', as time goes by this height is becoming average so next time will have more 7ft centers who will dominates the league.

Raul Dillo still holds the TALLEST player of a Filipino though he didn't able to reach to PBA because he pursue his acting career. Dillo is now a stage actor with some minimal extra appearance on film and TV. EJ Feihl still holds the tallest player in PBA and can be surpassed by Greg Slaughter if  he still continue to grow. JunMar Fajaro is the first tallest player to ever won the MVP while Marlou Aquino is the first tallest player to win the Rookie of the Year.
