6'4 as a power forward in the nba is laughable

It has always been said that Barkley was listed at 6'6 or 6'7 but was actually closer to 6'5.

Edit: some others have already beat me too it

Really! "Facts" you say? What facts?

Charles said in his own autobiography himself that he was 6'4". What are you guys smoking?

So you want facts, links, references and quotes?......Okay.

From a NY Times article about NBA Height irregularities.

What Charles is saying here, is his height actually went backwards from college as he acknowledged his real, as opposed to listed height.

From NBA.com

From Answers.com

A well known quote Charles Made (that you're apparently unaware of), re-posted on Celebrity Heights.com with references. Corrected here as well.

This was referencing Salon.com

6'4" 5/8 Would make Charles barely 6'4" 1/2

Wiki Answers.

This list goes on and on. Charles Barley's Height is/was no secret (except for some here). Should I provide the Google results page, listing the hundreds of responses quoting Charles and other trustworthy sources regarding his measured height at 6'4"? But hey, let's not let facts get in the way of an official story, right?

Maybe you should read the NY Times article I referenced earlier, regarding how players and teams mis-represent height regularly. You appear to need the lesson and perspective (especially since you apparently like to butt into other peoples threads you have no knowledge of, and call them out). Geesh! SMH.

Here it is if you wanna educate yourself (not easy I know), and learn some more facts.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/22/sports/basketball/22score.html

PS: Even if Charles Barkely was 6'6", which he's not. It would still be remarkable for him to play NBA power forward at that height. Such the irony of your intrusive, non-sensical, non factual response to me. SMH

Class is dismissed now.

Now see? Was that so hard? Your point is made and found to be valid. Good job. Barkley is 6'4". It is settled.

You gotta remember that the camera is up behind Lebron peering downward.  That angle will somewhat exaggerate the size difference between the two.

Agreed. 

 

I pointed this out earlier. 

 

I remember when Cam was at a Hornets game and Wade and Lebron approached him (Camera was straight, at ground level), Cam looked noticeably, distractedly huge (particularly his arms). You couldn't miss him. 

 

Wade and Lebron even mentioned they noticed this 'huge guy' in the crowd from the court.
