    So when will the real heights be posted? Did Simons really grow an inch this past year? Inquiring minds want to know.

    He said his official measurement was 6'3" without shoes so unless he's lying that's it. Not sure when the NBA will release them.

    I have a guy, let's call him M.B., with inside infos, and he told me Simons now stands at 6'8 and has gained 40 pounds of pure muscle

    His NBA predraft measurement without shoes was 6'2.25. Is there some other official measurement thats done? Maybe there now will be one done for each player every preseason?

    I'm assuming this new height requirement will be an ongoing thing each year.

    No half inch or quarter inch? They fucking rounding up?

    They should do centimeters.

    Agree. It will settle the Dame vs CJ thing for good.

    those are with shoes....the 'team' list from last year, mostly. Gibson was 6'8.5 w/o shoes pre-draft, and he was 24 when measured. He didn't grow 1.5" when he was 24

    what is there to settle? CJ was a half inch taller, w/o shoes, pre-draft; and Dame had a 1.5" advantage in wingspan plus bigger hands. They were both 21 when measured so the chances that either grew are small.
