Default Re: Getting taller?

you can't get taller is the short answer.

Long answer is, height isn't really important. There are 6'6 centers in the NBA as well as 5'9 shooting guards. What matter more than height is wingspan, athletecism(especially the second-third bounce if you are an under the rim player) and coordination. If you want to grow to your fullest potential, stay away from heavy lifting, eat right, sleep at least 8 hours a day and stretch each morning and before you go to bed.

I stopped growing when I was 17, after I started lifting weights heavily in addition to basketball. I did all the above mentioned things through my whole life. I'm 6'6 and 1/2" (200 cm)
