Players on a basketball team that are very tall. This term usually applies to centers or the "5" (who can easily be at least 7'0" tall) but can also apply to power forwards (also called the "4") or forward-centers (combination power-forwards/centers).
College Basketball fan #1: I can't believe that the coach keeps on using a 4-guard rotation! Our opponents have an 80% field goal percentage from inside the arc, and the team has absolutely no inside presence! In other words, if the team can't hit at least 50% of their 3-pointers, they will almost always lose, even at home.

College Basketball fan #2: We really need more big men. Tell Coach J to recruit some power forwards and centers instead of filling 4 out of the 5 new yearly spots with point guards and shooting guards.

A member of a group who is able to assert physical, mental and psychological dominance over the other members. A Big Man also needs to possess a significant set of skills in a particular field whether that is academics, sports or a professional career. Big Men compared to ordinary peoples have superior experiences and skills in nearly all aspects of life. A Big Man will often due to modesty, humbleness and superior morals take credit away from themselves and instead praise others. A real Big Man will never call themselves a Big Man.
Jordan will never be able to become a true Big Man

A character from Robert Kelly's hip-hop opera "Trapped in the Closet". Big Man also happens to be an asthmatic midget stripper. The severity of this character's random traits lead some to believe that the outrageous occurences of R. Kelly's hip-hop opera are just a ploy to make the public forget his "golden shower" upon a girl not yet of age.
Officer: "Hey, why they call you Big Man?"
Big Man: "Well I guess it is because I am blessed."
