Re: If Jermaine O'Neal is 6'11" 260lbs and can play center...

Well for one thing JO was about 17 when he was measured at 6-11, and it's been said quite a few times that he's really about 7-0 feet now.

Also T-Mac has personally said he's 6-10 and about 235.



And if you doubt T-Mac is that big............

Stromile Swift is listed barefoot, he is actually 6-9 1/2 barefoot.

And here is his draft result

http://www.thehrr.com/nba/draft2000/chicago2.PDF

Stromile Swift

height w/o shoes

6-9 1/2

height w shoes

6-10 1/2

weight 220

reach one hand

9-2

reach two hands

9-0

wingspan

7-2 1/2

and

http://www.thehrr.com/nba/draft2000/top75.pdf

6-10.5 220


now look at this image of T-Mac and Swift:




T-Mac is definitely closer to 6-10 than he is to 6-8, or even 6-9.

Re: If Jermaine O'Neal is 6'11" 260lbs and can play center...

Jermaine O'neal's a pretty big guy, for sure, but I don't think he likes playing center. Hate to offend anyone but he's a little soft. He grabs rebounds and defends well, but I say he's soft because he seems to settle for jumpers instead of using his size and athletic ability to score downlow. That's why his fg% is so low even though he's got one of the best post games in the league. I believe it's because he's soft that he would prefer not to play center and be the only big guy on the floor. Can't say I blame him though, he would probably be double teamed a lot more and have even more responsibilities on the defensive end being the lone shot blocker on the floor. Duncan is a big guy too and he always has someone big beside him to protect him, take fouls for him and draw some attention away. god forbid I sorta implied Duncan being soft too.

T-Mac and KG are the two most talented players in NBA History behind MJ.

McGrady is a great player, but in reality there isn't a huge difference between him being 6'8 or 6'10 when it relates to the length and athletic ablility of NBA players.

not really, 2 inches can be a big difference.

Great. Four members of their starting five would miss most of the season with bad backs.

He's really out of shape...

not really, when you consider winspan and reach is more important than height.. because you don't play basketball with the top of your head.

How does discovering McGrady's true height make him a better player?

But supposedly McGrady's REAL wingspan is 7-4.

So it is a huge difference.

That is why he was giving Dirk some problems in that playoff a year ago.

If he was just 6-8 with 7-4 wingspan, he could not guard Dirk, but at 6-10 and that 7-4 wingspan he could.

So it's a huge difference because he has BOTH the height AND freakish wingspan.

Actually if he just got a little stronger he could probably be a soft PF depending on matchups.
