I can't wait until I put on my shoes tommorow so I can be 5-9!
The average adult stands 0.4 inch (1 cm) taller in the morning than the evening, because the cartilage in the spinecompresses during the day.

Grant is closer to the camera than Charles (Grant's right arm in front of Charles left), the picture is taken at an angle and pointing up. Using a picture like that isnt very accurate, especially when there's a picture in this thread that shows Charles is a minimum of 6"6 in shoes.

First of all Barkley is 6'5 3/4" tall barefoot and second of all Lebron is taller than Carmelo. The latter is common knowledge.

Here are some interesting pictures for comparison from Media Day

Andrew Bynum's 7'1" claim looks legit near 7'0.5" Pau Gasol.



7'1" Shaq dwarfs 6'10" listed Amare


Amare is no more than the 6'9.25" Phoenix claimed they measured him in '03. He may have not even grown past his 6'8.5" pre-draft height. No point estimating Nash as we know he's 6'1" and he's much closer to the camera.

Some interesting pictures of Patrick Ewing and Hakeem Olajuwon who were both listed at 7 feet.




The 6'10" figure thrown around for Hakeem is probably correct but Ewing's claim of 6'9" for himself is obviously BS. If you don't know what claim I'm referring to here it is.

Quote:
MUTOMBO: [Sipping a virgin strawberry daiquiri] I like your restaurant, Yao. It's made for 7-footers and guys like Patrick Ewing, who is really 6'9". [Ewing has always been listed as 7 feet.]

EWING: Hey, I may be 6'9", but I'm a bad 6'9". And what about you? When I first met you, you told me you were from Zaire.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...st_person0314/

In conclusion...

Andrew Bynum is 7'1"
Pau Gasol is 7'0 1/2"
Kobe Bryant is 6'4 3/4"
Shaquille O'Neal is 7'1"
Amare Stoudemire is 6'8 1/2" or 6'9 1/4"
Steve Nash is 6'1"
Hakeem Olajuwon is 6'10"
Patrick Ewing is probably 6'11" and change


Sir Charles also still can't over the fact that Charles Barkley is almost 6'6".

I regards to that Shaq/Amare pic,remember that Shaq is 7'2 in shoes. It would be reasonable to estimate that the difference between Shaq and Amare in that pic is about 4 inches, putting Amare at about 6'10 in shoes, about 6'9 w/o.

Yeah but how tall is your dad? You also must remember that Ewing slouches. Hakeem probably isn't under 6'10" so Ewing has to be atleast around 6'11".

I'm not ruling out Amare being 6'9" legit but the difference looks to be more than 4 inches. I've heard Shaq is closer to 7'3" in shoes though. That'd explain it.
