    He measured between 6'10.5" and 6'11" without shoes, per source.

    Gotta say. Does make me wonder whether we should switch his and Sengun's positions, Bari's a significantly better defensive anchor. I feel like either way though, Sengun needs to drastically improve his body and agility to try and keep up at either position. If Bari's 7ft in shoes, better defender, better shooter...I wouldn't be opposed to running KPJ/Green/Ego/Tari/Bari as starters (or switch in KJM for EGo) and let Sengun either develop his game into a star, or become a situational roleplayer when there's a good post mismatch for him to get to work.

    since we’re upping everyone’s height these days, I’ll just refer to him as a 7 footer

    we’ve got a 7 ft guy with a sweet jumper and elite defensive capabilities to go along with our explosive scorer in Jalen Green

    I hope we see some real progress from the team this year

    Wear and tear against natural bigs (don't see many tho) could cause injuries. That would be my only concern.

    I can see why Jabari was considered for the first overall pick. Is there any player in the NBA who is 6'11", can play elite defense (Knocks out Kevin Durant), and has his easy range from three point land? It was only one preseason game, but it was enough to make me think the Rockets got a steal.

    You open that can of worms. Height is a sensitive subject around these parts.

    @Clutch - did you also get Sengun's exact height? Thanks.

    Ever wonder why they measure to the top of the head instead of your eyes? You'd think the height from your eyes to the top of your head has no real advantage. That someone with a big head that gets them another half inch - what's the value of that?
