Probably average barefoot height would be about 6'5-6'6" and average height in shoes is about 6'7" while the average weight is about 225-230.

Yeah, if anything, if you're under 6'3 or so, you're less likely to be a scrub. Those guys usually have game. It's the 7-footers that are often in the league only because of their height.

Yeah that is deceptive though because for example Shaq who is listed at 7'1" measured 1.5" inches taller than Tyson Chandler who is also listed 7'1" or Kevin Garnett who is 2 inches taller than Dwight Howard but they are both listed 6'11".

Almost all players are listed with shoes on. Average player is pretty much 6'6" 220. That's one hell of a big guy to the average guy.

6'6 is the average height and 225 is the average weight IMO.

Does anyone know the average heights/weights for different positions?

Because the average height for point guards is probably like 6 foot 2.

???

6'2" or 3"? How many point guards do you think every team has on its roster? 12? That might be the average height for pgs in the league, but cmon man, think it through for just a second. If the starting 5 of every team has a pg at 6' (prob short for pg avg), a sg at 6'4" (short for a sg), a sf at 6'6", a pf at 6'9" and a center at 6'11", what would that avg be (0+4+6+9+11=30"/5 players =>6" or 6'6" avg). and that would be a short squad. extrapolate from there
