Pippen ended up 6'7" with a 7'3" wingspan. Michael Jordan was 5'9" as a highschool sophomore and he grew to 6'5" by the time he was 19 and ended up 6'5 1/2" about a year later. I seriously doubt Wright is 6'10 1/2" Look at the Real NBA Height thread in this forum to see the heights of many NBA players and I doubt Wright is taller than many of them.

Dorrell Wright is NOT 6'10.5.

End of story. Most NBA PFs are shorter than that. Half of centers are that tall or shorter.

I don't doubt he's grown but his height is exaggerated even more than most players are.

Yeah I posted that on page 2 but even that is a stretch that would make him 6'9 1/2" Only 1/2 an inch shorter than Duncan.

Wright might be wearing the Air Frankenstein's that Spencer Hawes used that the Pre-Draft camp. They add 2.25 inches to your height.

i know you're right about turkoglu. it's crazy that guys still grow in their early 20's. i'm so used to think you're full grown at around 18-19 or so. david robinson grew too big to be on a navy boat. he grew like 4 inches in a small amount of time.

if dorell can keep his athleticism intact w/ these xtra few inches, he's gonna be impressive under the basket.

Not sure how accurate this may be but the Heat roster on Heat.com states Wright as 6-8 for the 2007-2008 season. Even being 6-8 with his athleticism, Wright + hard work = better than Tione at starting SF.

Hell, Wright + little work = better than Tione chucking threes. But if he's really 6-10ish he'd be Zo's height, I find that a little exaggerated. I hope it's true, maybe he'll start playing like Kevin Durant.
