People that judge height from these photos make me laugh,

And before you laugh at the guy telling you to use photoshop, maybe learn a little bit about neuroscience and how the images you see are constructed (not photos, YOUR ****ING EYES). Then understand anything about what a photograph is. Then understand depth perception.

Then combine this all to shut the **** up.

you idiots need to understand that these group pictures are rarely 100% accurate.

kevin love is huge in that picture because he closer to camera.

1 picture isn't enough to tell how tall they are especially when i can't see their feet. i need more davis / durant picture. we should get that more after the olympics

i will buy 6ft 9 1/2 KD. i do believe he has grown up to 1/2 inch. but i don't buy durant being full 6ft 10. there just isn't enough photographic evidence yet.

If Durant is a 7 footer then Dirk must be 7'2"...

this is probably the best shot

love is slightly closer to the shot and knowing that he is very insecure of his height he probably has the footwear advantage. and durant's head is slightly tilted.


one thing is clear from all of these pics i've seen. Bron is no more than 6ft 7 1/2.

Mash, care to explain the Dirk picture, or are you just going to gloss over it?

6'6 Iggy is also taller than Melo in this photo! OMG groundbreaking!!! Stop making these fu**ing Durant is 7 feet tall threads. It's called angles, camera deception etc.

Another angry ass dude who took a photography course at his local community college and believes his extensive education on the subject gives him an expertise and an insight that explains away Durant being distinctively taller than an individual he's standing directly next to.
