Default Chris Bosh is taller than Dwight Howard?



Maybe he appears taller because of his long neck and skinnier frame, but they there is no way Bosh is shorter, when NBA.com lists him at 6-10 and Howard at 6-11.

Bosh said once he is 7 foot but he likes being listed below 7.

Are the measurements ever updated? Does the 6'10 date back to pre-draft measurements?

I said appear, as in his long neck perhaps contributes to distortion in the picture, like when skinner people can appear taller than fat ones.

Default Re: Chris Bosh is taller than Dwight Howard?

I've seen photos where Dwight looks taller and a few more where Bosh looks taller. Really it's a wash, the only thing I think I can say for sure is that Bosh is easily taller than 6'10".

But hey, at least they seem like they get along well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp_NXxkFTSs


^ this photo makes me think they could be a funny sitcom duo if you put them living in the same apartment as roommates or some silly plot scheme

Dwight even makes Amare look small (in terms of strength) in comparison.

who cares who tall Bosh is? he plays like he's 6'7. he's a SF with bonus length. you don't win games with your NECK, you win games with your body, and bodywise Chris Bosh is not bigger than Dwight Howard, so maybe stop worrying about a couple of inches in height and worry about the fact that your PF is a defensive nonfactor and scares nobody inside.

Look, we know you're mad about losing Caron for the season, the fact the Gilbo just got injured, and that the Wiz lost again, but can you think of better things to do then to take it out on the best player for a team that's above yours in the standings? Also, did you notice that it was a lakers fan that started the thread?

Somebody's a little on edge.

Is it the Wizards' guaranteed first round exit or trying to write one of your highschool essays?

Just relax, Virginia accepts everyone.....well almost.
