I think Dorell will be the x factor (as will the health of the team ofcourse). But if he proves to be a guy that can step up and score double digits efficiently amongst other things, then they could surprise. Well some people, some people already think they'll be contenders.

Talking Re: Dorell Wright has grown to 6-10 1/2...

By the way they said in the main forum that Dorell Wright is now a legit 6'10 1/2. I think Wright is between 6'5 3/4- 6'6 3/4 ( with out shoes)

Dorell Wright in December, 2006



with 6'3 3/4 Dwyane Wade



with 7'1 Shaquille O'Neal

Dorell Wright in Feb, 2007



with legit 6'11 Michael Doleac


Unless, Dorell Wright take some miracle growth pills i cannot see him eclipsing his current height right now. Maybe Pat Riley shrink that is why the thought that Wright is currently 6'10 1/2. :)

NBA Should listed my boy Lebron James at 6'9 because he is definitely ( 6'8 with out shoes right now), According to the rule in the NBA once the season starts coaches and trainer should send a letter to David Stern and NBA.com so that the formal change of height, weight, will be updated.

Here are some changes in NBA.com

Scottie Pippen was listed at 6'7 in the his entire NBA career and suddenly NBA.com listed him at 6'8 in 1999.

Mike Bibby is a legit 6'1 but 2 NBA seasons ago he was listed at 6'2, After one season NBA.com reverse it again.

Tim Duncan who was measuerd at 6'10 in the 1997 NBA pre Draft Measurement was listed at 7'0 in most of his NBA Career. Then suddenly the NBA.com listed him at 6'11 which is Duncan's height in sneakers and shoes. ( Same with Dirk Nowitzki)

Steve Francis Birthday was listed in 1978 but after he was traded to the Orlando Magic back in 2004. The NBA.com suddenly make Steve Francis a year older listing him being born in 1977.

He looks like he's 6-8 to me in the pics you posted L23. He probably has grown since then though but I'd say 6-9 and not 6-10.5

That's more like it!...because I was pretty surprised at how Dorrell continually owned Kobe defensively in the X-mas day game last year.

Also, to the guys posting the pics, thanks for the visuals...but keep in mind, you can't judge height comparisons very accurately from side by side pics especially when neither guy is standing straight up. A slight lean can change the look completely...also you gotta think about how far their two feet are from each other...that will make people appear shorter.

Lebron23 is right Dorell is no more than 6'7". Also T-Mac did not grow 2 inches he is still the 6'6 1/4" he was measured at in 1997 look.



With Kobe Bryant who measured 6'5" without shoes in 1996 and has probably grown to 6'5 1/2"







He doesn't even have an inch on Vince Carter who measured 6'5 1/2" without shoes in the 1998 pre-draft camp.







Shane Battier measured 6'8 1/4" barefoot and EASILY has 2 inches on T-Mac. Bonzi Wells measured 6'5"

Ya, that was pretty awesome. But then he still sucked.

I kinda miss Skita, actually. Back when we sucked, he was one of the funnest guys to root for.

Check the 1st part of the page some Miami Heat fans posts a link about the Pat Riley Article.

Some notable growth in basketball

Dennis Rodman


Was only 5' 10" when he graduated high school.

He and his wife, Michelle, live in different houses.

Did not play basketball in high school; however, while at Cooke County Jr. College, he walked on and played one season before dropping out and going to work as a janitor at an airport in Dallas. A recruiter from Southeastern Oklahoma State University who had seen him play that season saw him in the airport and invited him to try out for a basketball scholarship.

Despite being consistently listed as 6'8", even in his NBA career, and also often 6'9", in the media and press, he is actually only 6'6", by his own admission.


David Robinson


He was 5 feet, 9 inches tall in junior high school so he tried basketball, but he soon quit. Robinson attended Osbourn Park High School in Manassas, Virginia just outside of Washington D.C., where Robinson's father was working as an engineer after retiring from the Navy. By his senior year in high school he was 6 feet, 7 inches tall, but he had not played organized basketball. When the coach added the tall senior to the basketball team, Robinson earned all-area and all-district honors but generated little interest among college basketball coaches. Basketball was not his first priority anyway—getting an education was. Robinson scored a 1320 on the SAT, and he chose to go to the United States Naval Academy, where he majored in mathematics.

By the time he took the court in his first basketball game for Navy, he had grown to 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m), and over the course of his college basketball career, he grew to 7 ft 0 in (2.14 m). In his final two years, he was a consensus All-American, and won college basketball's two most prestigious player awards, the Naismith and Wooden Awards, as a Naval Academy first classman (senior). Upon graduation, he became eligible for the 1987 NBA Draft and was selected by the San Antonio Spurs with the first overall pick; however, the Spurs had to wait two years before he could join them because he needed to fulfill two years of Navy duty.

Kevin Garnett

I remembered that he was measured at 6'10 in the 1995 NBA draft after a year he was a full grown man at 6'11 1/4. KG could just be listed as a legit 7 footer in his shoes but he change his mind because he wants to be remembered as a mobile PF and does not want to be categorize as a Center.


Dennis Johnson


As a 5-9 guard at Dominguez High School, Johnson played only a minute or two each game. After graduation the coach at Harbor Junior College saw him playing street ball, noticed his tough defense, and asked him to enroll. Johnson traded in his warehouse job for the classroom. Two years later and seven inches taller, Johnson averaged 18.3 points and 12.0 rebounds and keyed Harbor to a state junior college title.

Johnson received only two scholarship offers, from Pepperdine and Azusa Pacific. He packed his bags for Malibu. In his only season at Pepperdine, Johnson averaged 15.7 points and helped the Waves crack the Top 20 and make the NCAA Tournament. Playing tough defense, Pepperdine beat Memphis State and then put a scare into UCLA at Pauley Pavilion. In that game Johnson was all over slick Bruins playmaker Andre McCarter. Seattle scouts excitedly scribbled notes about the rough-and-tumble guard who jumped center. After that season Johnson applied as a hardship case for the 1976 NBA

Kobe was measured at 6'5" barefoot at 17 years old and I think he grew to 6'5 1/2" which is pretty much 6'6". You can see T-Mac is barely taller right? Anyway I can't see Dorell at 6'10 1/2" Shaq is a legit 7'1" there is no way Dorrell is just 2 1/2 inches shorter. Maybe Pat meant 6'10 1/2" in shoes.

Actually its possible as far as what he is listed at. NBA.com has him at 6'8, 2 inches isnt that farfetched. I'm fairly confident thought not 100% sure, but I believe you can continue to grow up until your 25. People keep asking me if im going through another growth spurt and I'm 23, so it's not entirely impossible.

It might be possible.

Scottie Pippen was only 6' 1" and weighed 135 lbs when he was a freshman in college (He started out as the team's towelboy)

In his senior year he was 6' 8" 220 I beleive, if not, bigger coming into the draft.
