Congrats, you found the exceptions that prove the rule.
I never said every single great power forward is 6'9"-6'11".
But most are.
Charles Barkley compensated for his lack of height with several things:
-Hall of Fame ability.
-Weighing as much, or more, than most of his much taller counterparts, while maintaining excellent athleticism.
-Being able to play either forward spot.
Undersized power forwards can find a spot in the league. But it's usually not a starring role. If Blake Griffin is 6'10", he has a much better chance at being a star than if he's 6'7 1/2".
