Ha, I do believe that's true. As a normal human being, I don't even hesitate to tell others I'm only 6'3'' (or 6'2'' and three quarters to be exact). Yet, as a basketball player, I was always listed at 6'4''. And, this isn't confirmed, but I feel like NBA heights are "with shoes" listings as well. I could be wrong. I just feel like I read these Draft Combine workout results and see players checking in at a much lower height than the are normally listed.
