In the last 11 years (since they've been reporting directly from the combine), only 16 players have measured at 7' or taller without shoes. Of those 15 players, only four players have gotten legit playing time in the NBA (Loren Woods, Primoz Brezec, Aaron Gray, and Hasheem Thabeet). I think you'd be surprised if the measurements were always accurate, how many "known" 7 footers in NBA history weren't actually 7'.
