jordan and iverson:applause:

so all that crap a certain simpleton loves to claim about jordan dominating smaller guards is horsesh*t because mj was undersized at 6'4/6'5 himself, and reggie had at least 3 inches on him

@him admitting he tried to get jordan kicked out of games by f!ghting him

when iverson retires, i'm done with basketball, because they dont make legends like they used to
:wow:

you're the fool if you think Reggie was even formidable one bit playing defense

players like ricky davis would have a ball going up against reggie... prolly would just overpower him and drop 35 easy

Reggie Miller never was defensive player of the year. He never made any all-defense teams either.

MJ is just shorter than 6'5 in bare feet.
He's close to 6'5.5 in shoes.
All NBA height measurements are taken when the player wears shoes.

Even a lot of players' heights now are overexaggerated.

Kobe is supposed to be even as tall as 6'7.

Yet is nearly as tall as D-Wade.

Many players in NBA are telling tall stories

New Jersey Nets center Jason Collins is listed at 7-feet tall in the NBA's player guide.

Truth be told, Collins needs a boost to even come close.

"In sneakers, with my orthotics, ankle braces and two pairs of socks, I'm a good 6-111/2," said a chuckling Collins, whose Nets trail the San Antonio Spurs 2-1 in the best-of-seven NBA Finals heading into tonight's Game 4 in New Jersey. "It's almost a joke."

Collins, who's more like 6-foot-8, isn't the only basketball player telling a tall tale.

Many NBA hopefuls exaggerate their height while in high school or college to make themselves more appealing to coaches and scouts who prefer taller players. Collins, for example, remembers the exact day he picked to experience a growth spurt.

"Media day, my junior year," the Stanford graduate said. "I told our sports information guy that I wanted to be 7 feet and it's been 7 feet ever since."

Collins isn't fooling any of his teammates.

Four-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Dikembe Mutombo, a legitimate 7-foot-2, said he and Collins don't exactly see eye-to- eye.

"They're giving him 4 inches," Mutombo said. "There are a lot of guys who list heights that they are not."

Mutombo said Larry Johnson, the former Charlotte Hornets and New York Knicks forward, was among the most grandiose exaggerators. While at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, Johnson was purportedly 6- foot-7. At the NBA's annual pre-draft camp, however, he barely topped 6-3.

"When guys are checked out in Chicago, it's the amazing shrinking measurement," said Marty Blake, the NBA's director of scouting.

The NBA doesn't measure players, which is probably why 1993 Most Valuable Player Charles Barkley got away with being listed at 6-foot- 6. Many who played against Barkley said he was, at most, 6- 4.

Several active players, including Philadelphia 76ers point guard Allen Iverson, are also practicing fuzzy measurement.

Officially, the league's 2001 MVP is listed at 6-foot-1.

"There's no way," Spurs forward Malik Rose said. "He's like 5- 11."

Rose, who's listed at 6-foot-7, admits to having fibbed about his height. Rose said he's actually 6-6, but felt he needed another inch or two in order to entice NBA scouts to consider an undersized forward from Drexel University.

"Nobody's going to go see a 6-6 center from a low-level Division I school so they gave me that one inch that helped," Rose said.

NBA spokesman Tim Frank said the league counts on its teams to give accurate measurements of their players, who don't necessarily need to change their height.

Victor Dolan, head of the chiropractic division at Doctors' Hospital in New York, said players can increase their height by getting measured early in the morning because vertebrae get compressed as the day progresses. A little upside-down stretching doesn't hurt, either.

"If you get measured on an inversion machine, and do it when you first wake up, maybe you could squeeze out an extra inch-and-a- half," Dolan said.

I know he was 7 feet, but Walt thought it made him look extraordinarily tall, Blake said.

Spurs veteran Steve Kerr laughed when asked which players lied most about their height. He cited the now-defunct World Basketball League, which originally permitted only players under 6-foot-5.

Kerr said aspiring NBA players, many of whom were listed at 6-8 and over, wound up honing their skills in the WBL.

They lost 4 inches in a six-month period, said Kerr, who is listed at -- and actually stands -- 6-foot-3.

Former NBA All-Star Nate Tiny Archibald, who grew up in New York, said no one he played with or against cared that he was 6-foot-1 while he was zipping past defenders on the asphalt courts.

In the city, it wasn't how tall you were, he said. It was about developing a rep.

Plenty of NBA teams will be interested in free-agent point guard Earl Boykins, who at 5-foot-5 is the shortest player in the league this season.

Boykins, who averaged 8.8 points as a reserve for the Golden State Warriors this season, said it's about time general managers and scouts abandon their bigger-is-better mentality.

The NBA is so biased toward guys that are taller, Boykins said. Either you can play or you can't.

The NBA's top official isn't about to call for league-mandated measurements of players. Commissioner David Stern, whose height isn't listed in the NBA guide but was once estimated at 5-foot-9, said the disparity between reality and hype only adds to the intrigue of the game.

If they told you the exact heights they would have to eliminate you, Stern said. It's one of the best-kept secrets in sports.
