The only height that's relevant as far as basketball is concerned is your height with shoes on, since you play the game with shoes on.
He's not a power forward, he's a combo forward that played in a small lineup. Would you have called Randy Foye a "power forward" when he played the 4 in Villanova's four-guard offense?
And he certainly is not a dominant player. Decent? Solid? Maybe even "good"? Sure. Not dominant.
If you 'knew' who i was talking about you would have at least thrown out a guess, so i don't believe that.
As far as his height, he is 6'2.
Sure his 'basketball' height is 6'3, or whatever your saying. That doesnt change the fact that he is 6'2.
I don't even really know the definition of a combo forward. I know in the 8+ games I watched of Syracuse last year he definetly did not play on the wing much at all.
Villanova offense back then if i remember right was a 4-guard perimeter oriented offense, meaning there are 4 guards on the perimeter.
Syracuse did not run this offense.
Thats like saying because Lebron is a PF and because he is taller then Ben Wallace (when Ben was starting).
But you must be right because you have never been wrong in your life huh??

That's on the Official Website Syracuse University
He is not even close to 6'2
Your telling me he measured 6'2 without shoes and 6'5 with shoes? WOW THOSE SOME TALL A$$ SHOES!!!!
Maybe when he was in high school ..... LOL
Shoes only add 1"
He is 6'4 without shoes and 6'5 with shoes ...
It seems that the schools website always has players billed taller then they really are.
Theres a article on draft express about the workouts in NJ they has last weekend and they did combine style testing.
He measured at 6'3 in shoes and 237 weight.

He was one of my favorite college basketball players, he made some dumb plays a lot of times but he would give you some very good plays.
This is true.
This is a worldclass athlete w/ great coordination.
Imagine him a LB or safety??
He better hope he makes a roster on an NBA team because it seems as if his game doesnt exactly translate to european style basketball very good, which means his contract will be way
lower then a NBA contract
