Who is lieing about thier height??
Okay.. This is a good read but thats not what I am posting for.. BUT, someone is fibbing about thier height here..
I mean here are the height listings... Tell me if you think that they are spot on..
Okafor - 6'10
West - 6'9
Ariza - 6'8
Thornton - 6'4
Paul - 6'0
Take 2inches off everyone
Thats not even what I am talking about.. Ariza looks taller than West and Okafor looks a good 3 inches taller than Ariza...
Yeah he is probabably like 6,7ish...He always looks short next to opposing pf's. Ariza seems to be like an inch taller. Okafor is a legit 6,10 for sure.
Ariza and West both look 6-8
Okafor look 6-10, 6-11
Isnt it crazy that if Okafor was listed at 6'11, nobody would say that he is undersized??
I remember Mark Blount and Jerome James listed as 7'0 and 7'1 respectively... I don't know if you're aware but they don't look like 7 footers to me... They both look like 6'10...
remember when they used to say that The Big Show was 7'4...yeah right 7'4...when he fought Shaq he was the same size pretty much...The NBA is like that too...say CP3 is 6'0 when he's really 5'10...I remember meeting Iverson when I was 16 and only 5'11 and I was taller than him!! I met 50 Cent too and was soo much taller than him too...I'm only 6'1 and a half but I dwarfed him like I was in the NBA...FYI...Is Ariza on the Hornets now???
Is that who they got for Collison...I know Lee is on the Rockets...Murphy went to NJ and Posey went to the Pacers...but did the Hornets get Ariza...
Scarecrown you cant FYI a question that defies logic but yea they got Ariza and
Shaq is 7'1 without shoes so he is probably 7'2" and some change with shoes. I think Ariza could have grown and is not using his new height and also West i believe is a least 6'8" and change and Okafor is 6'10 and some change but another thing is they may not all be standing up straight
T-mac is not 6'8, KG is not 6'11.
T-mac - 6'10.
KG - 7'1
I have it on a KICKS magazine interview where they both said their real height with Tim Duncan.
Everyone's height seems close, not exaggerated.
Is T-Mac really four inches taller than Kobe, who's 6' 6"?
Just googled them next to eachother and it doesn't look to be 4 inches.
lol... yeah... I remember WWE... It's not about height there too... It also includes the weights... LOL... I remember Kurt Angle being listed as 6'0 when he's actually 5'10... I remember Steve Austin billed weight as 257 when he's actually 220 or something... EVEN Kane! They said he's a 7 footer but in truth he's actually 6'7 and doesn't really weight 300 lbs... The over-exaggeration has always been part in wrestling and sometimes in basketball...
That was the best/worst gimmick ever...sort of like DNyce's forum career
Some players are taller than their heights say. KG came in at 6'11 out of high school and yet somehow he has not grown. Same thing with T Mac. He was 6'8" out of high school. It is possibly they stopped growing but a lot of people ahve told me that KG is at least 7 feet but did not want to be call that because he did not want to be seen as a Center because early on they had his as a small forward.T Mac may not want his height listed because he wants to play some time at two guard when he has a small forwards height.
I hear that KD is close to 7 foot and when I see 6'9" next to him i laugh because he was measure at over 6'9" in socks. With shoes if he has not growned he would be a shade lower than 6'11
Did anyone watch the HORSE contest this past year?? I mean Caspi is listed at like 6'9 and Durant 6'9.. Durant was way taller than Caspi.. I wish that someone would make people be measured every year and have it offical..
They have been classically over heigting players in the NBA for years. I'm 6'5.5 inches tall and I have met Nate Robinson when he was a member of the Knicks in person, anyone who believes that he's really 5'9 is smoking. Same with the 6' Allen Iverson, same with guys like the 6'9 Carlos Boozer, David West, etc. And my favorite, same with the 6'8 Ben Wallace.
I think thet listed him at 6'6 or 6'8...That's what i hate about college kids...Like is Perry Jones really 6'11 or is he 6'9 and a half and they just want us to see him listed at 6'11 and say " boy, that kid has the size to play right now"
The highest I ever seen Barkely listed at was 6'6...and I knew from televison alone that it was BS lol.
is overrated really wat is the difference of an inch
wen i play an inch doesnt really do anything some one please explain me how one inch makes a difference in size
Because you and your one inch Peter would be a lot more attractive with a 2 inch Peter...Scooby Doo!!!
None of them are lying about their heights
Per combine results, height in shoes:
they all lie...CP3 aint as tall as me...
I met Chris Douglas-Roberts and was at least an inch or two taller than him. I'm no more than 6'5 barefoot.
No but they do lie...
i bet the league cut out the horse competition next year..that was long and boring....
Garnett is taller than Tim duncan. I'm going to find the photo and show you all. And t-mac is 6/10 lol. I'm going to find the article or scan it on my scanner lol
Okay, I'm too lazy to find it in my house LOL.
But for those of you who have this magazine and read their interview, you'll read them saying it and agreeing with themselves.
Your way off on Jerome James he looks to be over 7 feet actually he definately isn't 6'10"
He used to tower over Eddy Curry who's around 6'10" or 6'11".
Yeah, I'm right at 6'4" and I looked Barkley right in the eye. It really just makes what he was able to accomplish all that more incredible.
Height don't matter when you still get boxed out by Earl Boykins ;)
Im not sure if i remember this correctly, but didnt lying(maybe) about his height kind of help Kris Humphries? Some draftsite(cough draftexpress cough) said after even, he and his father thought and swore he was 6'7or 6'8 he ended up being closer to 6'10
T-mac - 6'10.
KG - 7'1
No there not. I seen KG stand next to Bynum when I went to a game..Garnett was shorter.
T-Mac, I actually met. He's not 6-10. He's more 6-8
Since when did someone list T-Mac at 6'10...he's always been listed ay 6'8. The highest I ever seen KG listed at was 7'0
he said he's 6'10, but he wanted to be 6'8 so he wouldn't have to play the 3/4 spot lol. i'm going to find the article!
