I'm convinced that Walton and Kareem were each at least two inches taller than they were listed.

Walton still looked to be over 7' tall when I met him just 12 years ago.

Having seen Kareem and Manute Bol stand side by side and seeing a barely noticeable difference, I believe Kareem to have been about 7'5"

Garnett is over 7' tall and always has been listed at 6'11"

I also believe, though never saw him close enough to be sure, that Wilt was a good 7'2" or 7'3". He dwarfs even the legit 7' guys from his era.
