    Durant was measured 6'9" barefeet in Olympics, so the claims of him being a "7 footer" are completely out of the ass. He just looks very long due to his skinny limbs


    First off, where's the link for Olympic measurements?


    Second, that was 3 years ago, Bra, and Durant easily could have grown since then. If he's grown atleast an inch since then, that means he's 6'11 in shoes, if not more.

    Dude is still young.


    He was 6'10 1/4 with shoes on at the age of 19. Wouldn't surprise me at all if he grew another inch and 3/4 over the last 4 years to be 7' with shoes on. If not, I'd say he's atleast 6'11 with shoes on.

    No one cares what you are barefoot, you don;t play basketball barefoot!

    Per FIBA and the Chinese national team, Yao is 2.28 meters barefoot. That means he is 7-5 3/4 barefoot.

    No. Kerr was listed at 6-1.

    You're an idiot if you actually think John Wall is not taller than 6'1''

    Bynum was over 7'0 barefoot as an 18yo rookie, he's a bit taller now obviously.

    Reem looks noticably taller in the pictures you posted and he's well into his sixties. Not unthinkable he was 7'4-7'5 as a young man.

    He was over 6'10 in shoes at his NBA draft combine in 2007, Bra.

    I've seen him in person. I'm 6-2 barefoot and I was noticeably taller than he is.

    Sorry.
    Draft measurements are taken when players backs are expanded - adding 3/4 to 1 1/4 inches of height to their actual heights.

    This is common knowledge. I guess you never played basketball at any level, because even in junior high they do it that way to inflate the real heights. Anyone that thinks Durant is over 6-10 in shoes is delusional.

    So Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook are both only 6 feet tall?

    Oh, then you're saying every NBA player that's been through the combine is an inch and 1/4 shorter than their listed height.


    Nice try, bra. Durant is at the least 6'10 1/4 in shoes, but his teammates say 6'11 approaching 7'.

    Bynum is not even taller than Shaq now and if hes smaller than Kareem on those pics its by not more than half an inch max.

    Kareem was 7'3'' at most but he wasnt 7'5'' like Yao Ming
