If people were questioning your exact height, you would post a video to social media that showed the world the truth, right?
That's precisely what Draymond Green did Wednesday after practice:
Haha. Draymond Green with the visual proof that he’s 6-foot-6 without shoes on pic.twitter.com/4KzaRhy5iB— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) October 9, 2019
Pro tip -- if you see the Warriors forward out in public, don't tell him that he's 6-foot-5. He won't like that.
Why are you reading about this right now?
First, NBC Sports California's James Ham broke the news last December that Buddy Hield was a year older than his listed age.
Second, as Marc Stein of The New York Times reported a couple of weeks ago:
The listed heights of N.B.A. players have long been widely considered more art than science, but the league notified teams this week that they are required to certify and submit each player’s height and age within the first week of training camp, according to four people familiar with the new policy.
Exaggerated heights are commonplace in high school and college basketball as well, as players have long sought to make themselves more appealing to scouts at the next level. N.B.A. teams have likewise frequently recycled the data from players’ college careers, but the new policy mandates that team doctors will measure players, without wearing shoes — as seen at the league’s annual draft combine.
Therefore, the Warriors will no longer be listing Draymond at 6-foot-7.
Fortunately for Golden State, this should have no impact on the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year's ability to lock down bigger opponents in the paint.
Also -- Draymond apparently has grown a quarter of an inch because he checked in at 6-foot-5.75 during the 2012 NBA Draft Combine.
Carry on with your day.
