If I had a team I would list all of my players at ridiculous heights to force the NBA to find a reasonable way to measure players (for instance they could require all players to use their combine measurements unless they want to be re-measured by the league).

Your team the Milwaukee Bucks are suprisingly under billed by the NBA in terms of listing their height in NBA.com


Desmond Mason was measured at 6'6" in the NBA Draft Camp but according to his profile in NBA.com he is 6'5". He is 1'.25" inch taller than 6'4.75" Michael Redd and Redd was listed at 6'6" in their site.


Same with Yi Jianlian, whom they measured at a private work out at 7'0" Tall and they listed him at 6'11 in NBA.com. You can see in the REAL HEIGHT Thread of VCMVP1551 that he is an inch taller than 6'11" Andrew Bogut.
