I think you mean, Durant is stand (a bit) further than Davis. Look at their shoes, Davis is a bit closer.

Durant has a short neck and isn't standing straight thus making his shoulder level appear taller than Davis's whom he's standing next to?

You can't go by this. I'm not saying Durant is or isn't taller, but you can't go by shoulder height. I personally know this. For one Durant has his arms folded. So naturally his shoulders will be higher anyway.

Secondly, when I was in 9th grade in science class we measured everyone. I was the tallest person in the class, the second tallest person in the glass stood right next to me and his shoulders were higher than mine, but I was taller. Reason? I had a longer next and head them him.

It's funny though, in elementary school I was nicknamed Giraffe.

go ahead and draw the line in photoshop, and you will slap yourself for thinking there is an inch difference in that picture.


bunch of idiots in this board. davis' shoe is closer to camera? lol that's the funniest i've ever heard. davis could easily stand with his right foot forward. who da hell knows?

Personally I don't think you can go by this picture. Look at Love. Love is no where near listed at 6'11", but if you slide him over next to Durant he's just as taller or maybe a smidge taller barely.

Why are Westbrook & Harden both placed awkwardly on the left side like that?
