You forget how tall these guys actually are until you stand next to them in person or see them out amongst normal people on the streets.

Genetic freaks. The .01% of height.

Looks like Ben is 2 inches taller than Tobias, but then we would have to have a true height on Tobias.

Listed at 6'9", but we would have to see Tobias next to other guys too. Can't just say Ben is 6'11" without knowing Tobias' true height.

I don't care what anyone says - this got me more hype for this season than anything else this offseason. if he's pulling this off in real games, we're elite.

It’s a weird angle. Ben is like an inch taller than Tobias.

People that focus on his shooting are going to get disappointed.

I mean is there even a precedent of a shooter so bad as Simmons that became a competent shooter over a summer?

My issue is that his shooting form looks the same, and i dont know how good of a shooter he can become without changing it.

Even during the Nike shoot a couple of years ago, Ben looked huge.

So either Tobias Harris is really like 6'7" and Karl-Anthony Towns is like 6'10" or Ben legitimately is knocking on 7' foot's door.

Still looks like doodoo, but if he's shooting them, whatever.

I'm actually really positive on how his shooting is coming along. His footwork is really improving on his shot. His lower body had been spinning after every single shot since he was trying to jump off of his right leg, in a leading position, and shoot left handed. It's incredibly awkward to even try to imitate. You can tell he's making a concerted effort to rectify that. If we can just tuck that elbow in and get his hand under the ball, we'd be in business.

Ben’s jumper looks better and better every video, it surely looks better than in the beginning of the offseason.

Love this Video, Not sure why you would say Black Steph Curry when they are both the same complexion and Ben's Mom is fully white while Steph's parents are both more black than white.

It's something Shaq calls himself. Nothing to read into it. Just an idiot, quoting a 7ft idiot, joking around.

oh ok, I love jokes as much as everybody but I'm sure steph considers himself black so he wouldn't find that very funny especially when Ben is the same as him.
