What is Giannis' real height without shoes? 

Post#1 » by Oscar9992 » Fri Nov 8, 2019 1:26 pm

Lebron measured 6'8 1/2 without shoes, while KD 6'10 (w/o shoes too) in preseason.

Then what is Giannis' real height without shoes?

Here is Giannis with 6'8 and 1/2 Lebron

Isn't he 6'11? What's more scandalous is his listed Wingspan, don't tell me a guy with 'only' a 7'3 wingspan can dunk without jumping. It's gotta be 7'7+ easily.

Slightly taller than KD, so 6’11” sounds about right. No mystery here.

I think Lebron was measured 6'7.5 predraft.
Giannis is more or less like Durant, in that 6'9.5-6'10 range

It's been 16 years since 2003 NBA Draft. Lebron measured 6'8 and 1/2 in preseason measurements recently.

The 6'11 mark makes Giannis an official 7 feet by the old standard.

So George Hill grew 1,75 inches after being measured at 22 year old at the combine?

Both should probably lose 10 lbs. Interesting that Bender gained 14 lbs - he looked much improved in preseason. And Sterling Brown's 13 lb loss was overdue - but apparently it caused him to lose an inch? Either way, he looks much better than last year. Ilyasova shrunk 2 inches?

I think Giannis was 6'9 when he was drafted.

I don't know, I have an hard time believing there's like 1 inch between the two:
