Which is what I initially posted. I merely added that some articles and publications, at the time, even went so far as to claim that he was only 6-8. In any case, I have no idea where the 7-0 listing came from. Nor did it really matter, either.

Completely bone-head, but it actually did tell me which teams were the tallest. It was a good way to quickly weed out the tallest teams, but obviously completely off in terms of actual total heights.

It looks like 40'5" by the 1995 Bullets and 2007 Rockets is the number to beat. Anyone?

but where do you get 40'5" from?

put 5 7fters in 1 team, you are still 35ft tall collectively.

Did you divide by 10 after you summed things up, since the Lakers were 404 inches tall if I summed up correctly. That would be 33'8" if devided by 12.

Nvm, saw your last post.
