    you see, there's a reason why I'M asking this question!
    But I'm waiting for the first one to tell something about from the photograph's view, Tayshaun being on his knees, Mc Dyess standing on his toe's or whatever...
    But funny that you see these two guys together so often :P

    Speaking of size, did anyone notice how much shorter Ben looked next to Bill Russell during yesterday's DPOY presentation? Russ was always considered to be 6-10 going on 6-9, and you'd figure old age would shrink him a little, but he appeared to have 2 or 3 inches on Ben. Street shoes versus court shoes might be part of it, but Ben really is undersized.

    Lisa Leslie is taller than Kobe Bryant, but she might have been standing in heels.

    Amare is not 6-6.

    Although Ben is listed at what 6'9, he said (according to one of the announcers in Game 2) that he was about 6'7. Go figure.

    Another picture to ponder. This one is really good because it has all 5 starters standing in line. I got this from need4sheed.com. Its from a video of this season. I couldn't watch the clip though, still to bitter about the way things ended.

    Looks like "Big" Ben, our "Centre" (<Canadian spelling) should be playing SF.

    ros36: please don't link n4s images. Natalie don't like that.

    Sorry about that. I wasn't sure what the proper etiquette was. If I should post the pic, or just the link. Now I know.

    No worries Jam. If you link her image, it throws a big ugly banner. Try it, and just delete or edit your post once you look at it.

    It's actually a pretty neat effect to keep folks from stealing her images. I should ask her for the code! :nod:

    What's the deal with "stealing" pics? Is it because of the higher traffic?

    We pay for "bandwidth". The amount of data our sites or servers can move is limited, and when we go over our allocation, it starts to get very expensive.

    Technically, linking other folks images is called bandwidth theft, but there are remote hosting services available, and this summer I will integrate one here.

    Goes to show you why we didn't win. If Ben is really only 6'7 than he needs some help gaurding Shaq. Rasheed couldn't so almost anything on defense because of his tweaked ankle. Dice is too small as well and Dale Davis was never used. This offseason Pistons need to get a 7 footer off the bench.

    Nah, no big deal. Honest. My big concern was that you would be showing a N4S banner and not the image you intended.
