The players on my old college’s basketball team were listed as much shorter than they actually were. Guys listed as 6’7 I barely came up to their shoulders (I am 6’2). Even the 6’2 player was taller than me, and I am really confident that my height measurement without shoes is accurate. I really can’t speak for the professionals though.
