Default Greatest growth spurts of all time?

I read Scottie Pippen grew 6 inches the summer after he graduated highschool which allowed him to maintain his youthful agility.. also heard Rodman grew about 6-7 inches at the age of 20.



Any other examples of players getting late growth spurts?

I think David Robinson went from 6'7" to 7'1" while he was at the Naval Academy.

Right before he got drafted out of highschool he was 6'9" and he was even listed as that in the old NBA Live games. He's probably 6'11" or 7'0" in shoes.

I went from 5'7" to 6'1" in one year, been at 6'1" since I was 16 or 17. Too bad my weight went form 175 up to 238, btu that happened over the course of 4-5 years, right now I'm back down to 225, shooting for 200 even by April. So far I've lost 13 pounds in 17 days.
