But Craig Hodges was listed at 6'2", and he actually seemed about the same height as Kerr.

Basically, it's a shoes on measurement, and then they round up. Carmelo is actually only 6-6.75" without shoes. Beasley is just under 6'8" without shoes, Dwight Howard is exactly 6'9" without shoes.

The league has always done this a bit I think, but more so since the 80's....

Kerr is listed at 6'3", not 6'4". He doesn't look a full 6'3" either, though - more like 6'2.5".
