    It's actually the other way around. People who like Sengun because he is a great basketball player don't obsess over his height.

    It's haters like you who keep babbling about his height and how it supposedly limits him.

    The stats say otherwise.

    Mark Williams seems to stretch the floor very well with his 3pt shooting, a major concern and a rationale to replace Sengun.

    Not just height, Sengun is not jokic talk same as well. Sengun is worthless because he won't be as good as jokic, rather play bruno fernando.

    He's obviously smaller than Mark Williams. Williams is 7'1.

    Sengun is almost as tall as Boban in this pic.

    7'3 confirmed.

    Williams is a really big and long guy.

    He is well over 7'0" in shoes and has like a 7'6" wingspan.

    My guess is Alpi is 6'10" and has a 7'0" wingspan.

    Sengun doesn't really need to be taller, would rather him have another couple inches on his wingspan to help off set his mediocre foot speed moving side to side and back.

    Sengun would kill Williams in a game of HORSE.

    Mark Williams also is a spitting image of another shitty tall player.

    The Rockets as a team are allowing like 7-8 points a game less than last year....

    We need to be careful with these stats when it comes to defense (that goes for anyone).

    That isn’t Mark Williams. It’s Hassan Whiteside when Alp was a rookie and 6’9 with a 7’0.5” wingspan
    Alp has for sure grown, he’s a legit 6’11 and has probably a 7’1-7’2 wingspan.
    Right in the middle of the pack for centers.

    The point is that there’s 7 pages of people arguing about 1-2 inches when I don’t think they even know what they’re arguing for. Height only matters predraft in evaluating if a prospect’s production will translate to the NBA. Once you are in the NBA, only your production matters. No one cares if Fred and Cp3 are really 5’11 because we know they can play, but predraft it’s worth thinking about if size could limit them. Sengun can play. Whether he is 6’11 or 6’6 in reality, we have seen him for three seasons and he’s damn near our best player still, $60m in FA money be damned, so I think we can shut down the height debate.

    I was super high on Sengun before the draft, but if you showed me definitive proof at the time that he was 6’8 I would have lowered my expectations of him.

    On the other hand, now that we have seen him play in the NBA for three seasons, if you showed me definitive proof today that he is 5’8 I still wouldn’t give a damn. Our offense would still need to run through this 19/9/6, 5’8 savant center. Get it?

    Yep, but it is fun to poke his fans on the spectrum by posting his suspected height, they just can't let it go - need to take their meds

    5.5" but thick.
    So I can state from experience that what Alpi needs is not height, but mass.
    Just my 2 cents - and some change from the hundreds of beautiful women with whom I've made sweet, sweet love... (Ahhh...)

    Does Sengun have Low Shoulder Disorder (LSD)?
