    Neck length doesn’t factor into height. You keep bringing that up but it doesn’t change height, only standing reach. Also, he’s not leaning forward and Alp hair isn’t two inches lol. That hair style without product is at most half an inch high.
    They have the same wingspan. 7’1” and that was when Sengun was 6’9

    I didn’t say the same height. Alp is a little taller and they have the same wingspan.
    One thing is for sure, Jabari isn’t taller

    Now you're digging. LMAO. Like I said, shoulder to shoulder, hip to hip. Same height. You guys are so ridiculous trying to make such a big deal out of trying to say Sengun isn't 6'11".

    In the pictures, it gives the perception that they are the same height. That's why you all feel they are the same height or that Sengun is taller. Its his neck and hair

    If one guy can extend his shoulder at a horizontal and fully encircle another mans shoulders - well, there's a word for that, but i can't mention it here as it has no translation that wouldn't cause difficulties

    They both have arms around each other, but keep digging. Perception doesn't matter anyway. I'll take a measurement by the NBA over that any day.

    Man, are you serious? Height is height. Neck length isn’t an illusion it’s a part of actual physical anatomy.
    He is very clearly a little taller than Jabari.

    That literally doesn’t matter in height.

    If one's neck is longer, it adds to their length. It is apart of one's overall body structure.

    Are you all saying his neck does not add to his length?? Lol

    It does! The neck is apart of your body structure. A person is measured from head to toe, not head to chin and then shoulders to toe.....ITS THE WHOLE BODY!

    Head to toe is all that matters in height.
    Nobody figures in neck size when determining if one person is taller than another. LMAO

    Jesus Christ, are you that dense?
    Neck length is part of a humans height. Alp had a longer neck but he is also taller than Jabari.

    You are not making any sense whatsoever. Length and height when talking basketball are two different things. In this case, Alp and Jabari have the same length too (wingspan)

    You’re conflating proportions with actual height. Think about what you say before you type, it really makes you come across a little slow.

    Right. And you’re saying that his neck length gives the illusion of Alp being taller. Neck length is not an illusion, it’s a factor in Alp being taller than Jabari

    That is what I said! However, if you look at Sengun, he is disproportioned. He has short arms and he has a long neck.

    I know that's y'all Boy and you all are SOFs but it is what it is....He is 6'9!

    I don't care what his height is this thread can be closed best center we've had since Hakeem. And let's remind everyone that Hakeem wasn't not 7 foot either but no one cared about his height.
