Who wouldn't be playing basketball professionally if they weren't born friggin' tall? I'd like to know what the cut off point is. So this is kind of like the "who sucks at basketball" thread.

hard to say, if they werent so tall they would be much faster/mobile

but if they shrunk to 6'6, the only ones that would be in the league would be Yao(spot up shooter off the bench lol) and Raef LaFrentz(same)

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the main suspects:

Eric Dampier
Jerome James
Adonal Foyle

"Contract year already?" "I need to step it up!" "Where's my 'Basketball for Dummies' book?"

...and don't forget the forgettable Wang Zhi Zhi, and the Korean Ha.

I dont think that Yao would be able to shoot over people as he can easily now

Dirk is a better shooter than either of those, and quicker too.

hell, I wish Yao was about 6 inches shorter.

He would be a much better player

Blount would be a farily successful mid-range shooter if he was 6'6" or so. He would still be in the league and he wouldn't have to rebound.

He sucks though.
