1998 NBA Pre Draft

Dirk Nowitski- 6-10
Vince Carter- 6-5
Antawn Jamison- 6-7 3/4
Larry Hughes- 6-4
Paul Pierce - 6-6
Ricky Davis- 6-5

Nearly 80 percent of NBA Players height are measured wearing their shoes, their main reason is that they play with their shoes on court.

I remember seeing footage of Bron and MJ at Jordan's DC All-Star game for HS players and the difference in height definetley wasn't that great. MJ and Kobe are the same height and the difference between Kobe and Bron isn't that large. Must be the angle and Jordan's posture.

That link says Wade is 6-5 IN SHOES, which is what NBA players are listed as.

These pictures don't prove sh*t. How the player is standing and camera position can have a major impact on how the player's heights are perceived.
