Default Re: How tall are you guys?

I'm 5'9.5 but still growing. I usually play PF/C, although I'm a bit lanky, I can play average to good defense on man and post. People overlook me though and think I can't be a playmaker, mainly because my handles aren't those overly elaborate ones of the likes of Chris Paul or AI or so, but I can dribble better than some of those guys that are supposed to play point or a guard spot in my village. I have a mean jumper, a bit inconsistent beyond the perimeter though, and I have pretty good hops for a dude my age and height.

Im 5'9 and almost unstoppable one on one. Kobe like moves and superb midrange game, though just above average athleticism, but fast. But my perimeter range isnt constant. FT % is about 80%.

Good passing skills, but might overlook the passing man when trying to go one on one. Overall, defensive skills are above average. Good timing on blocks. Has speed to keep up with even the quickest players. However, tend to bite on fakes and could be post up easily by larger players.

Some people just have puberty later. I hope I still grow. I'm just going to drink more milk now since that's like the best I can do.

6"5' is pretty tall. I don't need to be that tall. If I hit 6 foot tall I'll be satisfied.
