Trudell said on the radio today that BI grew two inches to 6'11 now.


Da_n......I posted about two weeks ago that I thought he'd be about 6'10 w/o shoes about now. When he entered the league he was measured at about 6'8.5 or 6'9 w/o shoes.

I figured if he was that length already, and that he was due for another growth spurt or two, that he might top off at close to 7ft. At this point he's already got the gifts to transform the 3 and/or 4.


If BI gets a respectable jumper, he and KD will be the only players in the league that can play 1 through 5.


Don't forget Giannis.

Kahwai can probably if he really needed.

Dray can guard all 5 and often plays facilitator in the half court.

Oh and the Lebron guy.


So basically the archetype for the modern NBA player.

In a poor man's sense I think you can add Ben Simmons and (to and even lesser degree) Kuzma to that list.

Do we know if Trudell was just sort of igniting the fan base with banter or really reporting something that was part of an initial measurement? Often times when you're real skinny adding some muscle makes you look taller.


I read that Ben Simmons is a 7 footer now as well.

That was debunked. They also said he gained 50lbs of muscle or something


Jon Johnson debunked that Ben Simmons isn't 7 feet tall, the reason being is because he's just slightly under 7'0 as far back as April, as he's still growing, him being 6'11 now in September when he was barely under it prior is pretty darn plausible and likely true as has been reported.

He's definitely likely over 250 at this point as well

Trudell's comments on Ingram's height sometime after 28:00

Ingram hasn't been measured, but Trudell's saying he's at least 6'11 if not 7 feet.

Trudell talks more about Ingram's improvement after SL on his first step explosion, jumpshot, etc. There'll be a full interview vid coming out between the two sometime this week.

we gotta get official measurements or just quit this height-watch stuff. Literally every young player gets that rumor, and I start every other one.. I'm disappoint.

Ask google for pics and you'll see:

Okafor is 6'10 to 6'11 and he's bigger than Simmons. Embiid is much much much bigger and Saric is bigger too.

Simmons is anywhere between Covington and Saric


Ingram has about the same height.

If Ingram grew to 6"11' and he looks the same weight, that means he had to have gained some weight right? I wonder if he broke 200 by now. I hope he is at least 210 by the beginning of the season.

Excited to see whatever the hell Brandon Ingram's gonna be this upcoming season. Just a few more weeks! Feel confident in saying (just based on what his build looks like these days and the strides he took in that summer league game) that he'll be making some type of jump... how big will the jump be?

Trudell talks more about Ingram's improvement after SL on his first step explosion, jumpshot, etc. There'll be a full interview vid coming out between the two sometime this week.

In the interview Trudell spoke about Ingram's height, fuller shoulders, quicker 1st step, and shot, but when he talked about the improvement on his shot, he started to describe it in positive detail, but then he said you just have to see it. He said the things he's been practicing make him a better player than he was in the 26 pt, 7/8 ft summer league game.

With patience we're going to see why he's considered untouchable, even for "no brainer" trades.

I don't think Ingram is untouchable if guys like Giannis/AD are on the table. Let's not get too silly about that. These are young proven all NBA/all stars. It would frankly be a testament to how valuable ingram was is he was traded for these amazing players.

Yup. But I'm sure some of the kids here wouldn't trade him for prime Mamba.

Hopefully but as of now Giannias or AD for Ingram is a deal the Lakers would obviously accept and it's silly to argue it. Also, there's no evidence that suggests the claim that Ingram will be untouchable after this year. We can hope but I'm not sure how you can come to that conclusion based on what we've seen from him so far.

The offseason always goes through the same stages/themes. One is reports player X grew and then people compare photos. I swear 99% of the time, even with all the reports, no one grows.

Imo, too many times posters assume that what we saw in a player's past season(s) is what coaches and mgmt currently see behind the scenes at practice facilities. Then posters talk as if our information is credible and as up to date as can be expected. If Ingram is the player he's reported to be (despite realistic skepticism, some players do have breakout years), his value goes beyond stats. He's even more valuable if he's highly productive, and being 20 y/o is factored with his affordable contract. There's a lot of great basketball years of ability ahead. My guess is that mgmt isn't projecting him to be the 14-15 ppt scorer that many lg'ers suspect will be this year's ceiling.

A 20 y/o who's on the verge of a breakout year is something I'd prefer over an often/easily injured center with large contract needs. Forgive me if I like Giannis but prefer a guy who I suspect is in the process of perfecting his shot. Call me crazy, but that's just me. Im not going with the crowd on that one. Untouchable to me means untouchable.
