    That dude is sneaky, trying to make us believe that he's 6'11 when in fact he's only 6'7.

    BTW, Jalen Green is 6'1 without hair and without shoes. FVV is 5'6 without beard and without neck.

    He is an entire decimeter of Turkish Airlines added to his height via hair curl.

    It's outrageous - you can't perm your way out of being 6-8 - believe me I tried.

    This should help clear things up.

    Sengun is prob around 6'11 without shoes. That's part of the reason he is a lot more effective now.

    He said he was 211-212 cm barefoot which is 6'11 but that makes him at least 7 feet tall with shoes on and he doesn't look 7ft with shoes on. I think he mismeasured his own height and he's 1-2 cm shorter than he claims to be and he's 6'10 barefoot, 6'11 with shoes on. He looks 1 inch shorter than Zack Collins who is a legit 7fter. Also i think Jokic is also 7ft tall and Sengun looks an inch smaller.

    I’ve got my tinfoil on hear me out:

    Alperen is very flexible thanks to constant stretching. It is known as a fact that, people can get shorter during the day compared to when they wake up, because joints are pressed during the day. This is especially true when you STRETCH vs WORK OUT. You can confirm it by yourself. I am a short person especially in USA standards and I am about a cm shorter at the end of the day.

    So maybe he has about an inch or half shorter sometimes.

    Bottomline is, none of it matters, how a player effects winning play by play does.

    Surprised that no one noticed this but here you can clearly see that Jabari is taller than Alpe (in the head area too but more importantly) in the shoulder area, which is what matters most with standing reach and shot blocking/altering capabilities!

    Any chance Jabari's a 7 footer now? gulp!

    (Maybe Alpe just walks like Quasimodo!)

    Jabari is shorter. When you wrap your arm around someone's shoulders, you kind of hold them down.

    Nah, that's just a dunker's trick. It's well known that when you dunk on someone, you use your off arm to push down on the defender's shoulder.

    Don't be fooled. The two guys looked happy. But if you look deeper, you can see that they were fighting for position to show who's taller. ;)

    After trying to give him several chances, this gentleman (hlmbasketball)
    earned to join my ignore list. He does not contribute to the discussion in any meaningful way and he only loves bashing Alp. He is free to do whatever he wants but also I am free to not listen to his meaningless BS. cheers

    I can see your point. Its just that I have a different view point, so does it necessarily mean that I'm wrong? There are different ways to get to the same place.
