    He looks like the 2nd tallest guy there. He is even about one head taller than Mao and in China that is saying a lot. LOL

    He looks pretty tall here too:

    Standard head distance on a 5'7" male is about 11.5" from the shoulders to the top of the head.

    So that is about 17%. So on a 6'9" male the proportional distance would be about 20% more or almost 14". It appears in the picture that Nash's head comes up to about AJ's mouth, which is less than half the distance between AJ's shoulder's and the top of his head. Nash is 6'3", therefore AJ must be at least 6'10" assuming each has the same soul height on their footwear.

    AJ is between 6'9" and 6'11". I guess that much is clear by now.

    I'm just happy he is taller than Steve Nash. I haven't seen any suggested rotations with AJ playing PG. :MusicBigGrin:

    Look at those arms and risk, skinny as a rail.

    When considering the heights of AJ and Nash, one must also consider the fact that Nash is standing in front of AJ. This proximity makes his head look larger. Also, Nash is only reaching the heights of the troposphere, while AJ's height puts him up into the stratosphere. Also consider wind velocity at the different heights............:):):)

    All of those considerations, offset one another for a net difference of zero.

    He has got a lot more muscle mass on him than Tay.

    I noticed one thing in that first photo that was encouraging. If you look closely at AJ's pants you will see that they are "high water" pants meaning that he has probably gone through a recent growth spurt.

    I believe those high water pants are in fact high water shorts

    So AJ is about 6'7? I bet he used to fit in those shorts.
