  Big Al and Milsap.

The problem with Big Al is that he doesn't have the mindset of a defender, and I am not sure another couple inches would change that.  Although it would make him even more dominant offensively.

If Milsap were a bit taller though, that would be scary good.

Ty Lawson, Darren Collison, Avery Bradley. I think all 3 of those guys are All-Stars with 2 more inches.

Kevin Love might just be an MVP candidate.

Cant believe I forgot about Millsap.

He'll be a superstar for sure at 6'10". He'll probably be more confident going in the post. He'll be a better defender and a matchup nightmare because of his agility and quickness and now, a 6'10" frame. Definitely a superstar.

We will probably see less dunkfaces.

Let's look t this
LeBron will be 6'6" being guarded by a 6'5" Pierce, not bad.

Wade would be 6'2" being guarded by a 6'0" Bradley, that's not cool.

Rondo would be 5'11"...

Dwight would be 6'9" (or 7"), Kobe is 6'4"

Westbrook and Rose would be even shorter at 6'1" and would still chuck shots.

Durant will be money here, he'll be 6'7" (or 8"), adequate size.

Howard is 6'10 in shoes so he would be 6'8

So you want to see what would happen if he got shorter?

Isn't he a 7 footer who just wanted to be 6'11"?

Plus he's already a superstar, he doesnt count.

Yup - if he only grew a couple more inches he could be a baller, have a girl and call her, get a six-four Impala, and clean up his hoodrat problem to boot.  Seems like a pretty big improvement to me.

Especially if Durant were just squished down the two inches, so he were a little more solidly built--could be at least as good as he is now.

Wouldn't it be easier to simply raise the hoop 2"?

I think everyone knows my obsession with Sully and me wishing him to grow a couple more inches, as I think he'll be dominant at 6'11". It got me thinking...

Just for conversation (it's slow at work), for the fun of it, which player/s who's not a superstar right now do you guys think that, if he grew 2 more inches, would be at a superstar level in the NBA. Any player, retired or current.

My top 5.

David Lee - I can't imagine how many more rebounds a game this guy can have if he's 6'11". And he'll be more deadly in the post.

Andre Drummond - although it's still pretty early, a 7 foot Drummond might be the next coming of Dikembe. So athletic, long and great defensive instincts. Two more inches of length and he'll be a defensive wall for the Pistons.

Al Horford - I think this is pretty self explanatory. Horford at 7 feet is probably a top 3 Center, at least?


Avery Bradley - Why go far. His ball pressure against PG's is already elite, if he's 6'4" and will be able to defend wings as well without giving up too much length, we're looking at a multiple All NBA Defensive Team guy.

Kenneth Faried - Good Lord, the things this guy does, now make him 6'10". Yeah right?

What do you guys think?

So doesn't it look like Sullinger is taller than baby Davis? They measured exactly the same according to draft express. The point is that I think he actually MAY still be growing. I want to see him next to Baby and then also next to Dwight. Dwight was 6' 10.25" in shoes
