Default Re: How do you guys measure height?

Well I measure height based on what your barefoot height is... but the NBA does it in shoes. There really aren't that many 7 footers around... which is why you always get "The Lakers have so much size blah blah..." because they have two legit 7 footers with no shoes. Gasol is more like 7'2 in shoes and Bynum is probably 7'1. .. other so called 7 footers are more like 6'10 1/2/6'11.

I am 5'10 3/4 without shoes so I just say I'm 5'11. Close enough. I would surely be listed at 6' in any level of basketball that measures height tho (because in shoes I'm 6').
