how tall do you think you would have to be to play in the NBA?

Take your BB skills along with your speed, quickness, strength and agility that you posses at your current height.

How tall do you think you would have to be to play in the NBA and what would you be playing.


If i had the same athletic skills as I do at 5-9 I still think I would have to be a 7 footer to play in the pros and i still wouldn't really be putting points on the board. I would just be a big man blocking shots and getting boards. I think a guy like Dirk or Duncan would completely school me even if they were 5-9.

I would have to be black. Seriously though probably a 6'8" or so.

I was pretty good at basketball in high school, pretty good for our standards that is.

I could allmost dunk and I'm 1,82m.

Iverson is only 1cm taller than me and he could hang with the big guys

I'm actually pretty good at basketball for a 6' white guy (played college ball, was on the practice team for a currently ranked team). Even in college I was pretty short, so at least 6'4". It's crazy how tall and athletic great players are. When I run pickup ball, even w/ solid players, I'm never the shortest guy and often have to play the 4 or 5. In college, i was always the shortest or second shortest.

With my skills I'd have to be 10ft tall, 6ft wide, have the speed of Usain Bolt and the endurance of a marathon runner.

I can't even dribble well.
