I noticed it after looking at the picture a little. Anyone else can't wait till this team gets out there and plays? They are going to be a terror.

Also..

Wade is clearly taller than Kidd, and yet behind him.

LeBron isn't standing straight up so he might be taller than Boozer.

Bosh looks taller than Dwight, because Bosh is taller than Dwight...not because of his hair.

Dwight was measure as 6'9 at the NBA pre draft camp.
Bosh was measured at 6'10 1/4

Dwights reach and athleticism allow him to play bigger, so it's not an issue, but Bosh is indisputably taller.

Bosh is now closer to 6'11" he said it when he is covering the NBA Finals, and Bargnani didn't even towered over him.

1. Dwight is standing with his head raised, his head isn't straight looking at the camera.

2. Bosh has his arms behind his back, which pulls your shoulders down. Try it yourself.

3. Dwight has the ball under his arm, which props his shoulder up higher.

4. You also DON"T measure from your hairline, because most peoples heads are higher then their hairline. Thats why when you get measured they do it from your back. You drew a line right across Chris Bosh's head. So unless he has no brain, and his head is as flat as a board that's a stupid diagram. Chris's hair doesn't puff up. It lays flat on his skull. His dreads are skinny as ****. You drew the line right across the top arch of his head.

He is taller then Dwight. The NBA often lies about players heights. I am 6 foot 10, and have met players who are supposedly 6 foot 10 and I am clearly taller then them. It's like in any sport, from boxing to hockey and MMA. Height is often lied about.

I'm going to go with the the measurement taken by the NBA...over who's shoulders look higher to you. Dwight himself has admitted to being 6'9...I'm not sure why you are trying to argue him taller. He plays big, why does it matter to you if another player measures bigger than him?
