Rob, yea even with tape measure how do they come up with 7'1 1/16. That's such a rare fraction to see. Yea of course could have been a bit off

Rob, 1/16 inch isn't even on most stadiometers that I seen. they go by 1/8 increments like yours. Would 1/16 inch be just 1 MM?
[Editor Rob: this guy wasn't really measured on a stadiometer :) More of a tape measure being used...I think there is room for error in how he was measured though.]

Looks every bit of 7'1 and Kareem may have been taller than 7'2 but he was measured at 7'1.625, so let's stick to it.LOL,did Wilt really had 20,000 women or was he joking?

I WAS WORKING FOR THOMAS CADILLAC IN LA IN 1976, THE BUILDING WAS 5 OR 6 STORIES HIGH BUILT IN THE 30'S, HAD A SMALL ELEVATOR WITH AN OPERATOR FOR 6 OR EIGHT PEOPLE,I WAS ALONE IN IT WHEN WILT GOT IN ON THE MAIN FLOOR,AND WE RODE UP TO THE 3RD FLOOR. I AM 6'2" HE WAS NOT ONLY THE TALLEST MAN I HAD EVER BEEN NEXT TO BUT WHAT IMPRESSED ME WAS HOW BIG HE WAS. LATER I HAD SEASON TICKETS WHEN KAREEM CAME TO THE LAKERS I STOOD NEXT TO HIM MANY TIMES, HE WAS TALLER THAN WILT BUT NOT NEARLY AS BIG, ALWAYS LOOKED FRAGILE TO ME..I WOULD PUT WILT AT 7'1 OR 2 AND KAREEM AT 7'3", BUT KAREEM MIGHT HAVE LOOKED TALLER BECAUSE HE WAS THIN.

Rob, would you say it's just natural that 7fters have a lower life expectancy?

Because I actually saw Wilt Chamberlain at a restaurant in Bel-Air just a few months before his death and I was amazed by how well-built and in great shape he was for not only his height but his age. He was 63 when he passed away. It just blew my mind.

Wilt was 7'1" case closed. He was about 1-1.5" taller than Andre the Giant.

I saw him once in Berkeley. When he stood up, he looked close to 10 feet tall!

Shaq only 6'10??? Doubt it, he has 5 inches on Phil Jackson who ALWAYS looks a legit 6'8" guy.
Arch Stanton says on 21/Apr/13
Legit 7'1 guy, not even disputable, and is the best evidence we have of Andre the Giant being around 7'0.

This is how a legit 71" man looks, same as Shaq.
