Are the parent heights in basketball shoes?

Wilts mom wasnt exactly short. A 5'9'' woman in the 1930s would have looked like a giant next to other women. And his mom had a 7 foot grandfather supposedly. And Wilts little brother was like 6'5''. They had height in the family.

some of you need to study genetics. just because the mom and dad aren't tall doesn't mean the kids can't be. as long as it's in the family, it can be expressed.
