that makes sense because i work in the circus, and when people ask me how tall i am i say 22'8" because that's how tall i am on my stilts.

I can't believe this Dengness guy is still trying to persuade us this bullsh*t. When you go to the doctor's office and get your height and weight measured, you take off your shoes! Shocking, I know.

4.People are very interested in NBA players heights because they are so unusually tall so they would want to know their actual height.

The bottom line is the average person when they hear someones height assumes it's their height done in bare feet, if a players height is listed in shoes that should be noted.

Even David Stern said they only list some players above their actual height for hype.

To paraphrase you:

Height is trivial in the NBA anyway....so why would people be very interested in it?

Lol, anyway, on the topic, I realised that the height without shoes is more important (although the margin of error is insignificant in the long run) not because they play barefoot but becausei t is a more accurate description of everybody's heights. Have heights with shoes on, then people get worked up over 'OMG, the shoes iz 1 INCHES BIGGER!!'
