He is one of the most athletic big men in the NBA and this can turn him into a great defensive player in the low posts.

Tyrus Thomas in his prime would gonna be a sick player and one of the best player that ever played in Chicago.

Wallace hair can be pretty well deceptive. So, VC how do you estimate Wallace barefeet height???




7'1 Shaquille O'Neal and 6'7" Penny Hardaway



6'6.25" Carmelo Anthony and 5'10" Allen Iverson

Penny is actually only 6'6" according to his pre-draft measurement.

btw I think Big Ben could be 6'5.75" barefoot and 6'7" in shoes after seeing him look the same height as 6'5.5" Vince Carter in the 05' ASG

Penny was wearing huge shoes because he towers over Wade and isn't that short compared to Shaq in these pictures. Gasol looks every bit of the 7'0.5" he is listed in Europe. Lebron actually only looks a little over 6'7".

Lebron is at least 3.5 inches taller than Hughes and we know he is one of those few players, who does not wear thicker shoes unlike Carmelo Anthony.

Lebron James actually come on the bottom of the nose of Zydrunas Ilgauskas, which is approximately 6 inches.


Here is some of the picture of 6'8" Darius Miles compare to 7'2" Zydrunas Ilgauskas in 2004.






6'8" Lebron James, 6'8" Darius Miles, 6'7 3/4" Carlos Boozer and 7'2" Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

Compare Lebron to 6'7.25" Magic Johnson and with 7'2" Prime Kareem Abdul Jabbar, it would give you an idea that Lebron is taller than 6'7 because Magic's Head just come on bottom of the mouth of Kareem.

Lebron is a little shorter than Miles but Lebron is 18 in those pictures so he could be taller. I personally see Lebron at a little over 6'7" in most pictures but for some reason he looks 6'8" next to Vince Carter. Zydrunas Ilgauskas was listed 7'1" for a while in 1996.

Kobe looks taller than the 6'5" he measured in 1996. Fisher looks 6'0" flat.

6'8.75" Emeka Okafor, 6'4.75" Jason Richardson, 6'6" Gerald Wallace



Kobe looks taller than the 6'5" he measured in 1996. Fisher looks 6'0" flat.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas is taller than Shaq in the 2005 NBA ALL STAR Game by more than 1-1.5 inches. I would not buy the 7'1 listing in 1996 because he is way taller than Shaq and it could possibly just his guestimate height listing in the 1996 NBA Draft Profile because he looks like a strong 7'2".

It actually look like more than 1 inch if you will realize that Shaq is standing at the back of Zydrunas Ilgauskas. I believe that Shaq is a weak 7'1 and he must be a solid 7'0.5" because Z is definitely taller than him.

Z is 7'2
Shaq is 7'0.5" possibly his listed 7'0 in the height chart in the steel movie.

If you will try to magnify the picture Big Z is a minimum 2 inches taller than Shaquille O'Neal and i do not believe the hype than Shaq is the full 7'1, he claims in this bio.




By the way Lebron James is the same height as Darius Miles in some of the pictures of them together in one photo shoot.

Shaq is every bit of 7'1". Zydrunas Ilgauskas may be a legit 7'2" and wearing bigger shoes for more support because of is foot problems. Shaq was measured 7'1" and 303 pounds in 1992 which is why he towers over Hakeem and Duncan. Shaq is also atleast an inch taller than 7'0" measured David Robinson and atleast 2 inchs taller than 6'11" Patrick Ewing. Zydrunas is also closer to the camera. Anything less than 7'1" for Shaq doesn't make sense unless Tim Duncan and Hakeem Olajuwon are closer to 6'9" and David Robinson is closer to 6'11". Shaq is also leaning in that picture. In the picture I posted he is standing straighter.

That is actually the same picture only enlarge so that we have a closer look on how Z is about 1.5-2 inches taller than Shaquille O'Neal.

That is from the same photo shoot but a different picture. Look Shaq is smiling in the picture I posted and leaning to the opposite side. I give Zydrunas 7'2" and Shaq 7'1". If you see Shaq next to Patrick Ewing, KG, Duncan, Hakeem or Robinson there is no way he is below 7'1" Same with the picture you posted of Shaq towering over 6'8" Grant Hill.

Milwaukee Bucks Media Day 2007




Coach Larry Krystkowiak 6'9" and 7'0" Yi Jianlian



Michael Redd 6'4.75" and 7'0" Yi Jianlian



6'11" Andrew Bogut, 7'0" Yi Jianlian and 6'9" Charlie Villanueva.





6'11" Andrew Bogut and 7'0" Yi Jianlian



6'6" Desmond Mason and 6'4 3/4" Michael Redd

This end the debate and it finally confirmed that Yi Jianlian is the tallest Small Forward in the NBA at a legit 7'0" ( with out shoes) and 7'1" in his basketball shoes.
