What's the real average height in basketball?
#1
According to wikipedia the average basketball player is 6'7" but we all know they exaggerate their height. What do you think is the real average? 6'5? 6'6?

6'5"-6'6". It's well known that basketball players are measured in shoes. Check out their stats on draftexpress and you'll see.

I know that people exaggerate height but I think a 6'7" average for basketball is quite realistic to be honest. Legit 6'5" guys like Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan are by no means tall for the sport. Heck not even LeBron James is and he's definitely 6'7" at least.
