My friends dad is like 6'0... maybe a little taller at the most. His mom is 5'4... he is 6'2. That's weird to me.

My mom is 5'8, and my dad is 5'9. I am 5'11... I am basically right smack dab in the middle of most of my mom's brothers (average around 6'2) and the guys in my dad's family (average around 5'8 or so). whatever, I will take it. Being 5'11 is a lot better than being 5'8... but it sure would be nice to be 6'2

am i the only one that wants to stop growing? im 5 9 or 5 10 and considered pretty tall amongst my peers, but when playing basketball, id rather be shorter to have a better centre of gravity, because im pretty skinny for 5 foot 9 at around 115-125 pounds

Then you must live with a lot of Mexicans or Asians

I'm 5'11 and I'm shorter than all of my good friends. Not one of them is under 6'... and I just realized that lol. You never want to stop growing (until like 6'4 then maybe you can want to stop) if you play bball lol.

Anyways, I'm 6'1 and my dad is 6'2 and my mom is 5'3 and I'm only a freshman. Either I'm done (god, i hope not) or I got lucky apparently

haha.. I live in an asian community and the tallest high school player is a 6'1 guy I believe. I'm 5'7 right now and probably will be 5'8 in another month. It's ok though because I can grab the rim now of a 10'0 hoop hehehehe(I still can't get why I can't dunk a 8'0 hoop. When I jump to it, I just stop going up for some reason. When I try to dunk a 10'0 hoop, I get around 3 inches below the rim height.)

Just eat healthy, sleep well and don't work out too much(don't lift heavy weights more than 2 times a week)
People are getting taller with each generation due to healthier lifestyles so you it's possible to outgrow your parents by a lot. My mom is 5'9 and my dad is 6'3, yet I'm 6'6(measured w/o shoes) and I'd be even taller if I didn't start working out so soon (:
You grow in spurts so maybe the results aren't gonna be so quick but they will come, you just gotta be patient. cheers (.

My dad is 6'2" and my mom is like 5'8" but im just about 6'6"

My mom was adopted though so we think that her biological father must have been pretty tall because my parents are like the tallest in the respective families
