6' - 175lbs and am usually the all purpose player for my teams. I play the center on D, I post up on the block like a PF, I can have the offense revolve through me in the high post (automatic midrange). I consider myself a scorer in a sense that I'll pull threes when it's really necessary, other than that I will never roam beyond the arc; my 3ball is OK. I can break and run the floor with the best of them. With the perfect angle and clear path to the rim I can 1 legged bang it hard.

Oh, I play mostly in asian/filipino leagues unless it was college intramurals so being 6' makes me a legit 3, undersized 4-5.

I'm 5'7, 21 years old. I noticed I grew to a solid 5'10 the past few weeks. But than I woke up.

My dad and mom are both 5'9, is there a chance that i can grow taller, lets say 6'3?

Anything is possible of course but realistically that chance is pretty small.

Especially your dad only being 5'9'', that's really not working with much. Do you have any tall aunts, uncles, cousins or grandparents?

You'll probably level off at 6'2''

I'm 5'9'' and shrinking.

I play guard but where I am from not a lot of tallies, so I can play down low if needed.

depends who i play with. if its with the guys i play everyweek (poor standard) then c/pf.
Then the crap league i played in (better than the usuall guys) i would start at the C then as the game went on i would mark the best player...usually thier PG for the last Q. i played an average of like 35mins per game using internaional rules ie 40 min game....knackering.

im 6'2 160ish. looking to bulk over the summer for the 1st time and push up to nearly 180. still young only 19...looking to play uk univeristy ball (2nd team) so in US terms like high school standard. i wanna be a solid sf

That's very light for your height (but not very surprising from the one pic of you).

I am skinnish yet I am 140 lb at only 5,9 1/2 (at best and I am barely 5,9" in the evening because of daily height fluctuations).

I've got high shoulders, though. My shoulder height is the same as many ppl who are an 1-1.5" taller than me. I have refrigerator-box shoulders and a neck that seemingly doesn't exist
