    He's a pic of the 6,4 3/4" MJ and the 7,5" Yao (note those are their barefoot heights)...
    I haven't seen a pic of Yao standing next to somebody who's noticably taller than him...
    Here's Yao and Shawn Bradley...they both seem to the same height...

    And Shawn Bradley trying to block Yao



    btw, I think 7,4" Mark Eaton might have the same shoulder height as 7,5" Yao. He has a very short neck and broad high shoulders unlike Yao who has narrow droopy shoulders and a long neck .

    Yeah, I go on that site all the time out of curiosity. It seems to be the most accurate.

    I think it has the best height records for celebrities hence the name Celebheights. I think 7,5" is spot on for Yao. Then again, I mentioned before Yao doesn't seem as massive as players of similar (or slightly shorter heights) like Mark Eaton, Shagari Alleyne, Pavel Podkolvin, and Slavko Vranes. I think it's because he has very narrow sloping shoulders. Shawn Bradley has a similar built to Yao (except his hips are also narrow unlike Yao who's broad-hipped).

    The only thing find surprising about Chris Bosh is that his wingspan was measured at 7,3" despite having such narrow shoulders (and thus a long neck. His small head also exaggerates the long neck because a smaller head means less to cover up the neck). That must mean Bosh has absurdly long arms, but his standing reach still isn't ridiculously high because of his low shoulders.
