I thought it was common knowledge that Hakeem was 6'10"?

Maybe that is a good reason for you not to contribute to this thread and go jerk off to a picture of Wilt.

Yeah it is, but the thread is about the listed heights as its just for fun.
Most NBA players are 2 inches shorter than actual listing.

I have no problem with you personally. I actually like some of your posts in the threads about classic players. But, it is pretty clear we are using the listed heights in this conversation, otherwise you can go through and dissect every player on every team that every person mentions. There are always going to be an inch or two here or there that a guy is given credit for which maybe wasn't the reality... But it will probably even out, so who really gives a sh!t?

Hey, I was MERELY pointing out the well known fact that Hakeem was nowhere near 7-0, and Sampson was nowhere near 7-4. As for the rest, yes, you could argue these "listed heights" until the cows come home. And, as we have already read, you could also argue the listed lineups, as well. I suppose you could find a roster with five players around 7-0+ and use that as an example, too.

In any case, I apologize to those that I may have offended by posting about Hakeem's and Sampson's actual heights.
