I believe Burke has a 6'5.5 wingspan. Iverson's is listed at 6'3.


there is no way iverson had a 6'3 wingspan, he had some of the longest arms on a player his size I've seen, thats what made him so good around the basket and with that cross over

I really hope He makes the Team and Conbritues, Iverson was the reason I became a fan 23 years ago and Burke has always reminded me of Him.
Rooting for ya Burke.......

Well Iverson is really 5'11 so a 6'3.5 or 6'4 is probably about right.

That always surprised me as well always thought his wingspan was massive compared to his height like 6'7 than to see 6'3 I'm like but how.

With trey burke you can kind of see he has long arms plus he is sturdy those things mixed with his quick handles helps him get to his spots. If it wasnt for those attributes he wouldn't have made it because he is not explosive , he has solid speed but not enough to give him a edge.

If a 5'11 player has a 6'7 wingspan, he would already look like a gorilla. He could probably touch his knees without bending.

Donovan Mitchell is 6'1" without shoes (sounds like we're talking about height without shoes if we're calling Iverson 5'11") and he has a 6'10" wingspan.

iversons wingspan is longer than 6'3.. I legit will not believe otherwise unless someone shows me a picture proving it.

there is literally not a chance in hell its only 6'3.. that would make all that he did all the even more incredible

Just watched his highlights in utah jazz uniform which he wore jersey no. 3..
Overall look identical to AI.. amazing..
I think the jersey number has some magic impact though..
What jersey no. he got now?

Don't know what number he will get but #3 is retired here, so he won't be getting that.

Comparing him to Iverson really doesn't make sense anyway, Iverson was just in another universe from Burke. But it will be cool to see it, as the crowd will probably go nuts when Burke comes in the game....which could either help him do well here or hurt him, guess we will see.

Guessing he’ll be 23 which he wore in NY, and I don’t think anyone has claimed since Jimmy bounced.

Can we all agree that if he doesn't play like Iverson, he was a monumental failure of a signing?

He needs to deliver 30ppg. Not 29.9.... 30ppg. Nothing less.

He better lead the league in steals too or its EB's head.

I'm also looking for him to crossover Kawhi.

We could be booing Burke by Christmas, he better step it up.

I was glad to hear of the signing but he hasn't been impressive since then.

He's an excellent PG off the bench, one of the better "sneaky" pickups of the offseason that national media won't notice the impact of until 30 games in. I think he'll make a killing with Embiid & Horford, especially with dribble hand offs from Joel and his ability to create in the halfcourt. Between him and Neto I think he will easily win the spot of first guard off the bench and could realistically average 12-14ppg next season, there's enough defenders in the Sixers 2nd unit that he can be the go-to bench scorer & playmaker which he should thrive as.

Agreed. This is a fly under the radar type of acquisition and I could easily see him cracking the regular rotation. Capable of putting up big numbers and could develop into a nice x-factor role. Great opportunity for him to earn some $ next year.

Yeah I could really see him earning some money as our leading scorer off the bench, which he is totally capable of doing cause its not like we have anyone that can even average double figures off the bench as of right now other than him.

I'm looking for 12ppg, should be interesting cause it took a while for Lou to take off....we can all pray Trey can follow a similar path. Either way, we need someone to score off the bench and right now the rookies and Trey are our best hopes.
