Bob Lanier's size 22 shoe accompanies his 6-foot-11-inch height. In the 1970 NBA Draft, Lanier was the number-one pick overall, ending up in Detroit. After Lanier's selection, the Pistons' prospects steadily improved. The Pistons put up a team record 52 wins during the 1973-4 season, netting Detroit a spot in the playoffs. Lanier played with the Pistons for nine years prior to his transfer to the Milwaukee Bucks, where he would remain until retirement.
