Arrrghhh u got me I been tryna fool u all ... lol, seriously tho, thats what u think? For real, If the rim isn't quite right, good for you for noticing, because I didn't. Great observation, and by all means keep it in mind and alert everyone so that you don't think I'm "tricking" you... it's just a fun photoshop not a conspiracy theory






All in all I'd say I did a pretty good job at even finding such extremely similar perspectives and then scaling them up. Thought it made for a fun pic, guess not tho guess it's just me trying to trick everyone

great job! love seeing photo's like these.

Got a pic of him with his arms spread out and a ball in his hand? Can't make these pics out of thin air, gotta have a source (btw I've seen a pic of him with his arms spread out if that's what your thinking of but that isn't enough, it needs to be a pic with a basketball in it because that's how I get the scaling correct)

Of the current crop, Anthony Davis is the quickest leaper and that's why he will have more blocked shots. But taking a pounding can affect his willingness to go after blocks.

YESSSSSSSSS!!!!! Dude, awesome, I can't incorporate it until I get home from work tonight but that is a GREAT FIND! Any others would be appreciated from you or anyone else - that is exactly what all these pictures I've used need to be like;

*straight on shot (no odd angles)
*at least one basketball in one of their hands to get the scaling correct

repped. again thanks

Yao's wingspan seems to be 7-5. I wish there was a picture of Manute Bol, he has the highest wingspan in NBA history at supposedly 8-6

There is one, with Muggsy. You even got 3 balls and it's a straight angle if I remember correctly.

sure, let me know if u find any pics with his arms spread out to showcase his 7-4.75 wingspan, that would be ideal but I know they aren't easy to find obviously not every player has posed like that for a photograph

Yes, his wingspan was measured to be 7-5, and his height without shoes was measured at 7-5.75
