I see , thank you
I thought Horford is 6'10?
updated 5/19Really like the way Spellman played in the tourney - good shooter from 3 too. Wouldn't be a bad pick.
Omari Spellman seems like a real possibility at #27. The Cs have been trying to develop a back up who can play a similar role as Al. First it was Mickey who had potential on D but never developed on the perimeter and didn't seem strong enough. Now its Yabu who has a chance but needs to show that he can be consistent on D.
Spellman is an interesting fit. He already played the role at Villinova and is already a very good 3pt shooter.
His measurements are similar to Al's
6'8 W/O shoes 253lbs and a 7'2 wingspan with 13.75% BF
6'8 W/O shoes 246lbs and a 7'.075" wingspan @ 9% BF
If Spellman can continue to trim down and plays in the 240s he might add enough lateral quickness to excel in Al's role down the road.
I also have to point out that DiVincenzo could be an interesting pick
He's been listed at 6'10, but I believe he's honestly and realistically 6'9. NBA drafts had him at 6'8 without shoes. Which is a terrible analysis to make, because when do NBA players ever play barefoot?
His standing reach is 8'11, but he has one step vertical of 35.5.
It's the same argument that people have been making of Kevin Love.
People have argued that Love is maybe 6'6 or 6'7. So with shoes, he would be about 6'8.5.
Love is maybe 3-4 inches taller max than Rondo in the picture.
JJ Barrea has also been criticized for being '6 feet tall,' when he's always been known as 5'8 or 5'9.
Isaiah has also said, he's a 'little guy.'
In discussing the fans’ relationships with Celtics players, Thomas — one of a handful of NBA All-Stars in history under 6 feet — admits he’s even shorter than his listing lets on:
I’m a little guy — I’m only five-foot-eight — so unless you’re a huge basketball fan, you’re probably not going to recognize me around town. I’m not like Jared Sullinger ducking into the doorway of a restaurant. I blend in.
My thinking is that the NBA doesn't want people to think really short players can somehow make it into the NBA, lol.
They seem to go overboard giving players like CP3, 6 feet tall, when he has admitted that he's also 5'10.
