    Jalen Green is 6'6

    Jalen Green Body type reminds me of a young Clyde Drexler.

    Are we going to try out Gerald Green for good measure?

    That's like the scene from "Blazing Saddles" ("Just give me 24 hours to come up with a great plan......" "NO!" "You'd do it for Randolph Scott." (hushed reverence) "Randolph Scott."

    If we knew this kid was the next Glide, which of course we don't, there'd be no debate here. Unless we also knew Mobley was the next Bosh.

    I like those comparisons until they become someone else entirely.

    Recalling Kobe sticking his tongue out after every hang time layup?

    I don't know why this conjured an oft-seen NBA image. Have you ever wanted to slap that mouth-guard out from between Steph Curry's teeth? "Keep it in your go**amned mouth (slap)!"

    there’s no way Green is 6’3 unless he’s wearing these in this pic

    The G league does official hight measurements just like the NBA does....there's no serious question about his height unless you are suggesting he's grown since then and could be even taller today than when he measured 6'6.

    I believe Scottie Barnes was measured as 6’7 without shoes and 6’8 with shoes at the Combine

    @csc177 I think it’s safe to say that Jalen Green is around 6’5 or 6’6 with shoes on based on the pic of him next to Barnes and not 6’3

    the same guys who say they wouldn't draft green if he was really 6'4 are the same type of dudes who list their height as 6'0 on tinder when they really 5'10.

    Klay Thompson was measured as 6’5 when the NBA re-did their measurements

    Booker is 6’5

    Harden is 6’5

    only thing Jalen Green needs to worry about is putting on weight and getting stronger which will happen naturally

    Idk where this “he might be 6’3 or 6’4” stuff that’s been mentioned for weeks came from

    Well, that and learning how to play defense, improving court vision, improving as a passer, improving general BBIQ, and making his shot more consistent.

    But for sure, his height is not a concern.
