i dont know, he was touted as a 7ft center from what I remember back when he first came to league, very least 6'11". I dont know about the 69 stuff, especially after he fell off, i didnt really follow him like that but on the magic I remember being touted as this 7ft center. At least thats what I remember.
You didn't know dwight was 69 lol? How tall you though Hakeem was lol?

nope for real didnt hear that lol.

I thought the Dream was 7 ft too, Im wrong there too? Tbh I never cared too much, except about Wade, I kept saying he was 6'2 and that made him even more of a monster considering he used to block centers straight up.

Howard was never a legit 7ft Everybody knew he was 6'9 it just made it that more impressive that he was able to lock the paint down for so many years at that size.
Howard got exposed in the Finals against Bynum and Gasol. you could clearly see he wasn't close to Bynum or Gasol in height and Howard couldn't stop either one.

Howard has made a career benefiting from the lack of true centers in the league.

They didn't have official and regulated measurements, they were self reported before this. How they managed to go so long without officially measuring height and weight in a pro sports league is beyond my understanding

These measurements BEEN known shoes or no shoes...



The league KNOWS already, you take a physical before you start any job...



The issue is this is what they're TELLING YOU and the conclusion YOU draw from that information...

I been knew something was up...Used to go to Allstar weekends and the year Allstar game was in Philly I realized these niccas are NOT TRULY MUCH TALLER than folks i meet in day to day life...

Maybe it's the "allure" of them wanting YOU to "KNOW" they are "superior" to you in hopes that it makes YOU a better consumer...when in all actuality they ARE SUPERIOR on the court and athletically BUT they ARE HUMANS of varying heights just like YOU and the people you engage with on a daily basis...



I been 6'2 for a long while, and the only players i've met that were uncommonly tall were Shaq(that nicca take up alotta space), Garnett(nicca was alien tall and thin) Duncan(tall slim and got a big a*s head)...

Yup, tried to tell people in that Zion thread that this sh*t gonna happen all across the board. NBA is done embellishing heights.

Wade was listed as 6'4 but they say he was really 6'2.

Anyways, wouldnt surprise me to see Durant gonna be 6'9, and all that 7 ft sh*t will probably be gone too.
Im just slightly under 6'1, seen Wade in person, he bout the same height as Norris Cole who is listed at 6'2

A lot of these were blatantly obvious (Draymond, Dwight, Kemba).

If you look at Dray next to LeBron after Bron stepped over him in the Finals, you can see LeBron has a couple inches on him.

Wade is 6 3.75 without shoes. He actually had one of the true heights listed.

Draft express actually has their without shoes height.

Technically it's better to measure a player with shoes on though, because during game a player has to wear shoes.

Draymond is no longer 6ft 5 during an nba game because of the sneakers and foot gear. He's close to 6ft 7

The dudes who make the scouting report are probably pissed they have to work with inaccurate "within game" heights when game planning for games
Without shoes is better because everyone wear different soles that have a variety of length.

You had Kevin love wearing 2 inch soles at the combine while wade wore .75 inch soles.
