Default NBA Pre-Draft Camp Heights And Weights Announced

http://www.insidehoops.com/draft-pro...urements.shtml

Some surprises were Rodney Carney measuring at 6'5" with shoes and LaMarcus Aldridge weighing less than 240 pounds

Looks like Adam Morrison is 6.8. Someone said other things

Just as I suspected, Adam Morrison is, in fact, 6'8.

Where is Joe Wait at?

I'm sure he'll say, "Those measurements aren't right" or "They're lying to make him look better".

Fact is, he said Adam Morrison was no taller than 6'5.

Killinsworth is so small. I thought he would be at least 2 inches taller.

I would have guessed David Noel would have been 6'6'', but I guess not.

Other interesting things that I've seen just from skimming the listings: JJ Redick is almost 6'5 in shoes and Ronnie Brewer weights 223. He's going to be in the mold of Joe Johnson only longer. That bodes well for him.

McNamara being as tall as (or I should say, as short as) Carl Krauser is surprising. McNamara is short.

Aaron Gray is 7'1, 280. Wow. Rudy Gay is only 6'8.

Cool, always interesting to see the true heights.

Craig Smith is 6'5.5" - exactly the same height as Larry Johnson, the guy he reminds me of (not as good, but same mold.)

that's a horrible deal for TO, you can get much more for Villy, and MoPete is their best defender

Like joe wait ever knows what he's talking about. You shouldn't have mentioned him, you're just encouraging another bs reply.

Raptors fans are going nuts with Villy's value. He scored 13 points on one of the worst teams in the league while playing no defense, and all the sudden he can only be traded for all stars? Sorry Kwaj.

Might just be me but the NBA and its fans seem overly obsessed with meassurements. Especially when you consider how many stars don't fit the stereotypes.

Shaq is too fat
KG is too skinny
AI is too short
Big Ben is too short
Brand is too short

etc...

Every year one or two players unexpectadly bust out and play well. Does Diaw doing it make it more likely that Charlie V will? Also, Charlie got 12 more minutes a game last year than Diaw did in Atlanta.

i'm just saying it's funny that you think villa is overrated cause he scored on a bad team when a player who couldn't even score in atlanta has everyone hanging off his balls now.

means you can't assume someone's worth or talent based on the level of their team.

i'd like to add that i think villa will be better than diaw will ever be.

On an overall level, I find that hard to believe.

He'll be a better scorer, yes. Better all around, no.
