Well either your arms are really short, you have low set shoulders, a massive head... or a combo of those. I am 5'11 with a 7'7 standing reach and that's only average... so I'm 5 inches taller yet my reach is 9 inches taller. How old are you? Are you still growing?
im 16, so im short for my age, but the doctor told me i would be 5'10 or 5'11. and i dont have a big head, so i must just have low shoulders.

Your body hasn't fully grown yet... I wouldn't' even worry about it right now. Doctor's are pretty accurate with that stuff you most likely will hit that height and your reach will sprout up as well.

This is kind of off-topic, but will my standing reach/wingspan will continue to grow as I do? I've heard both yes and no so I want to finally find out for sure.
I'm 15, 5'11, 7'9-7'10 reach, and a 6'3-6'4 wingspan.

I would assume so... I don't see why your arms wouldn't grow and the rest of your body would. That doesn't make much sense.

That's a good reach and great and wingspan btw.

Yeah I thought it made more sense, but I've heard both answers from people. And once basketball is done, I'm going to train/lift hard with the tips people have here so hopefully I could go from just touching rim (about a 28 inch vert) to being able to dunk a volleyball consistently (32-ish vert?)

Yea you have to be wary about who you take advice from... a lot of people are just full of crap lol. I can't tell you how many people spew straight garbage at the gym about anything and everything lol.

That being said though, I don't know for sure about that tho, it's just my best educated guess. I have also heard before that you grow out faster than you grow up... but I don't really trust the source I heard that from and I think it might have just been a theory of his anyway since he had the same standing each as his brother who was almost 2 inches taller him. He was sure it meant he would grow taller... but he hasn't lol.
