How tall is Kevin Garnett. REALLY?

Ok, its widely known heights/weights in the NBA aren't consistent at all.. Garnett is listed at 6'11, Duncan at 7' -- and I coulda swore Garnett had at least an inch on him when those two teams played the other day.

Can't they just measure everyone and make people like me who look at the little things happy?


Haha

Garnett looks to me to be legitimately 7 foot. I think Duncan might be a little under 7.

I agree with that.


I think Duncan is about 6-11 while Garnett is probably 6-11 3/4 or something like that. Ahh one of the many mysteries of the NBA.

Posture. Duncan's mother never told him not to slouch.

I bet KG is 7-2. And Duncan is 7-0. KG definitely grew after he came into the league.

Garnett is 7'1". He wanted to be listed at 6'11" because he didn't want people to think of him as a center. I don't know what Duncan is, but I know for sure that Garnett is 7'1".

My estimate is Duncan is about 6'10.5" and KG is about 6'11.5" at the most (without shoes). I guess he would be 7'1" in the right shoes.

Yes Garnett is taller then Duncan. Duncan came into the league more developed at an older age. That has been his height since. KG has grown...

Garnett is 6' 9" 1/2

Yesterday while playing against the Pistons Garnett looked quite small next to Okur, who is listed at 6' 11"

So figure it out for yourselves.

KG's 7 foot myth is finally resolved. Not even close to 7

I've played against Tyson Chandler 2-3 times. Hes atleast 3-4 inches taller than me and I was measured at 6'8. Chandler and KG standing next to each other look about the same height. You do the math and dont be silly.
