How tall is last the No. 1 pick actually?
Jon Johnson of WIP:
But Philadelphia coach Brett Brown says otherwise.
Brett was asked if Ben Simmons has grown two inches to now be a 7-footer?
“No. He is not,” Brown said.
Has he grown an inch?
“I don’t believe so. I feel like I shrunk an inch.”
“I can feel comfortable saying, ‘No.’ He didn’t grow to 7-feet. I wish he did.”
NBA players fudge their height all the time. Height can also fluctuate throughout the day.
So, I don’t even know the best way to measure Simmons on a scale relative to his NBA peers, let alone his exact height.
But he’s very tall for someone who will play point guard, and that’s very cool.
