....the Lakers FO was so concerned about Lonzo's defense that they brought in KCP to help him out. However, we now we know Lonzo is no slouch on defense himself. I'd actually argue that he's played more consistent defense that KCP has this season. I think we were all mistaken with Lonzo's defensive potential before the season began.

(Sorry for the click bait )

At 6'5" Lonzo is sneaky-good on defense plus he's a very good rebounder.

I'd say he's more like 6' 4 but it doesn't matter because he's got long arms and good hops.

No doubt.

Josh Hart measured 6'5.5 at the combine , Lonzo is a tad taller. Heights aren't really lied about today, the combine is legit (KD's can outlier)

Measured at the 2016 NBA Draft Combine, Hart stands 6'5.5 in shoes with a strong 204-pound frame. He has a solid 6'8.5 wingspan

Heights are deceptive to look at, especially on screen. Shoulders height draws a lot of attention, Lonzo has a long neck https://s.cdn.turner.com/drp/nba/lakers/sites/default/files/lonzo-bench.jpg

https://cdn.nba.net/nba-drupal-prod/2017-11/ball-dribble_0.jpg shoulders look low

So I'm not sure if his standing reach is that high because of that --- although, he dunks off vertical really easily

Zo is at least 6'6" in shoes, if not a little taller.
