What about Reggie Evans with two more inches? Still no offense but he could be averaging something like 16 boards and 3 blocks a game with 2 more inches.

If OJ Mayo was 6 foot 6 instead of 6 foot 4 I think he would be pretty dominate as well. Already a great scorer. Those 2 extra inches would make him that more dangerous going to the basket.

Also surprised that no ones mentioned Big Baby Davis... Superstar, I dont know because the bad shot selection would still be there...But with two more inches and still the same mobility in the post, then take away the amount of shots he gets blocked.

And as a throw back. Two more inches of Ben Wallace woulda been fillllthy.

Bradley and Sully would be the most interesting of our current squad

A 6'10, 6'11'' Glen Davis would not be a superstar.  Definitely quite a bit better, but still not a superstar.

Ben Wallace would have been even more of an All-Time great if he were a couple inches taller.  Crazy.

Yeah I still don't think Big Baby would be dominate but he would certainly put up better offensive numbers.

And I still can't get over the thought of Wallace with two more inches.

Isn't Big Baby closer to 6'7?

6'11 Davis might be scary. Again, what Andre Blatche should have been and could possibly still be.

Josh Smith

Those are the only ones that stick out to me.  Two inches isn't the difference between superstars and non-superstars, especially with perimeter players.  Maybe Tony Parker or Steph Curry.

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner

Anyone at least 6'2" and attempts to defend or rebound would be much better with an extra 2".  I don't think it would make much difference with short points like Chris Paul or nonrebounding bigs like Bargnani.

I agree that Leon and Bass would be helped trememdously.

On the flip side, BBD's defense would be scary. It's darn good as it is right now.

I think a 6-11 Big Baby would be pretty similar to Demarcus Cousins.

He defense the past two years is no different that it was his last few years with the C's.

Thought of another name.

Thad Young at 6'10"?

That's a keeper.

Like the list mgent gave outside of Randolph and Ibaka.

Randolph I think is already a superstar, Ibaka even at 7'0" I think will still be the same.

Yeah, so much of his rebounding/defensive woes are due to his size and short reach. And he's still a good offensive rebounder when put into that role.

I think he's solid right now right? Defense has never been a problem if I recall.

6'11, mobile, good instincts. Dang.

On second thought, I'll back pedal.

Thad is too limited to be a superstar, even at 6'10". Inconsitent jumper, no post moves.

Chuck Hayes is a name that certainly stands out.

At 6'6, he's still one of the post defenders in the game. While he'd still be undersized, I can't imagine what an extra 2 inches would do for him.

Luis Scola is another guy that I didn't see get mentioned, though I guess he's just a lesser example of Zach Randolph.

Wonder how Dwyane Wade's career would turn out. Would an extra two inches at least prolong his career? at 6'6 he's probably not taking the same kind of hits he has throughout his career. Though he'd probably not be quite as quick.

AI.  If he had the size of a true SG, he wouldn't of had so many bad shots.

Muggsy Bogues.  If he could have the career he had at 5'3, imagine what it could have been a 6'
