Sorry, I made a post right after on Sep 2, acknowledging that I mistook Yao's MMA post for yours, but it still doesn't show up for some reason.

Sorry if this is off topic, but I had no idea you train in MMA. Do you do it for fitness or self-protection reasons? Or are you interested in it for a pro career? Either way, that's pretty cool.

Response: Definitely for fitness/self-defense. If I was 18 again maybe I might think about competing in jujitsu, much less damage than MMA but no $$$. There is a very good documentary on former MMA champion Mark Kerr aka the smashing machine, gives you a good idea of the struggles with pain management and personal issues behind the scenes.

@Christian: that was Yao is 7-8 that says he trains in MMA. In my case if I didn’t have the herniated disc issues I would be in for a variety of things. I enjoy weightlifting now and could be a body builder but don’t have the dedication. Maybe a PT on the side secondary to what I do now

Where did I call you a Chinese Basketball player? You are seriously an imbecile, you have a very difficult time comprehending what you read, or you are just are that stubborn and unwilling to admit when you are wrong

Canson said on 17/Aug/20
Chinese Basketball player. Shawn Bradley, another giant of the court has been quoted as saying: "He's not as tall as me. If he's 7-6, I'm 7-8". Yao has stated "I'm 7-6".

Response: Which part of what you said on 8/17/20 above calling me a chinese basketball player did I not understand? You got short term memory problems bro since I've noticed you tend to forget quickly what you just wrote. Plus, you are more stubborn than me because you are wrong all the time but refuse to budge a micrometer. Practice what you preach, buddy. It's easy to lecture other people but it takes a real man to look deep within yourself and admit your mistakes.

How does you being or not being a Chinese nationalist or Bradley “hating” have anything to do with this? You seriously have issues thinking someone making someone taller or wanting someone to be taller is praising them but making them shorter is hating. That’s delusional and childish behavior and thinking.

Response: Bruh you call me a Chinese basketball player and I am saying I ain't a China citizen or a ball playa like yourself. BTW, national means citizen, look it up in Merriam Webster. I say you hatin' because given 2 possible height measurements, one being short one being tall, you always favor the shorter measurement for some celebs and the taller one for others. It's so obvious that you hatin' on certain celebs, e.g. Yao Ming and Lebron James while favoring others, e.g. Hulk Hogan, Shawn Bradley, etc.

Response: You gotta be the dumbest person ever to post on celebheights if you thought Shawn Bradley's statement was a serious, objective estimate of Yao's height. Shawn obviously was hatin', big time.

Now you’ve seen me say before that I didn’t believe there is a 2” difference between them. But you gotta be the dumbest to make a comment and say that someone is “hating” on someone because he exaggerated a height difference Or said someone isn’t as tall as they claim. It’s height and it’s objective. That has nothing to do with whether or not you like someone. It’s height. And Bradley making that point was just to say that Bradley is taller than Yao. Bradley is also listed at 7’6” so he was saying Yao can’t be 7’6”, And it was more than just half inch. That’s a full inch between them at worst. So that’s also dumb on your part that you can’t read between the lines. You do realize Bradley measured 7’5.5” too and Bradley was taller than Yao whether you want to accept it or not

That said, how is Bill Welsh’s estimate any more credible than any of those that I just mentioned?

Response: You have to look at the context and not just take the words at face value. Bradley clearly felt insecure and threatened by Yao's presence so he exaggerated the only advantage he perceived he had: height. I already said that 6-6 for Kobe could be with shoes height. Kobe is pre-Silver, so IDK about his real height but he looked the same height as Jordan. As far as Bill Welsh, he had no skin in the game. Bill was just an objective observer who gave his honest opinion. He went so far as writing a bunch of disclaimers to be cautious. Anyhow, my guess is his estimate is accurate. 7-7+ Yao with shoes is about 7-9. Like I said, I don't think Yao is 7-8 flat, but I could be wrong.
Canson said on 17/Aug/20
Yao is 7-8 said on 15/Aug/20
@Canson, Why would Bill Welsh's estimate be any LESS accurate than yours or mine? If anything, his is more accurate because he has met Yao/Bradley more than once and is 6-8 himself.

So I’m going to take a wild guess and say that Shawn Bradley has met Yao more than once (they both played in the league together).

Chinese Basketball player. Shawn Bradley, another giant of the court has been quoted as saying: "He's not as tall as me. If he's 7-6, I'm 7-8". Yao has stated "I'm 7-6".

I’m also going to take a guess that Lebron has been measured himself and he has claimed both 6’7” (twice) and 6’8” multiple times.

I’m also going to take another wild guess and say that Vanessa Bryant knows Kobe pretty well. She lived with him and was married to him for close to 20 years. She measured him at 6’4.75 not 6’6”.

That said, how is Bill Welsh’s estimate any more credible than any of those that I just mentioned?

Well, Yao fan as i `m loving Yao but he is hint shorter than Bradley, Bradley is taller was taller than his NBA height. I`m almost 7ft tall. 212cm actually. Yao is tall anf big but 7`8 is absurd. I know Bradley or Yao do n`t care about this topic. Both are huge but Yao was better playing ball. Bradley was gazy good shotblocker at his best. . Easton was only better than him. Keep it cool no reason to fight inch or two. They still are both only semi giants compare to 8ft + giants.

So if someone meets The Rock and says he looks 6’5” are we supposed to believe him? You pick and choose what you want to believe as always. Yao measured 7’5 range (7’5-7’5.75) each time he was measured

Muresan keep pretty poor posture usually. He has always done that even he could stand taller. But today they migjt be same height compare to Mr. Ming ming. Have not met them in 10 years.
Yao is 7-8 said on 11/Aug/20
@Nippu, Brother you are not too bright if you thought the 60 minutes clip was an accurate measurement of Bradley's height. Yao/Muresan photo was taken on an indoor basketball court. So you think the floor of the basketball court is uneven? Gimme a break. Yao is taller than Muresan and Muresan is taller than Bradley.
Nippu said on 10/Aug/20
I give Bradley 7`6 and half because he was measured that in 60 minutes. Standing height and daytime. Yao 7`5 and muresan is as tall as Bradley but not taller. Yao/Bradley photo is not perfect but you can Bradley being taller and that is not only picture. Muresan/Yao picture we don`t see feet at all and Yao look taller than Yao ming ming and that is not true. So probably Yao is standind a bit higher ground.
Yao is 7-8 said on 8/Aug/20
@Canson, I am projecting? Put money where your mouth is, show me a photo where Muresan is taller than Yao. I produced a photo where Yao is foolproof taller than Muresan.
Yao is 7-8 said on 7/Aug/20
@Canson, you keep saying that Muresan is taller, and yet I produced a photo that showed Yao to be taller and you haven't produced anything. The only photos you cling to are the 2 Yao/Bradley photos when Yao was a growing boy, and only 1 of them showed Yao to be shorter since Yao was slouching. The other Yao/Bradley photo showed both to be the same height because both are standing relatively straight.

@Editor Rob: he is shorter than Bradley and Bradley even alluded himself that He’s 2” taller. Maybe it isn’t that much but he’s still taller. Bradley measured 7’5.5” and 7’6.25”. 7’5.5 is too high for Yao

Muresan is clearly not as tall as Yao. The pic below was taken in 2009 when Yao was 29 and Muresan 38. The camera angle slightly favored Muresan to the right. The camera was mounted on a boom to take a head level shot. If Muresan is 7-7 then Yao is 7-8, and Yao should have been the tallest player in NBA history, not Muresan.

Bro. You make an excuse for every pic where Yao doesn’t look as tall as you want him to be. That is blasphemous. Muresan has always been taller than Yao. Yao is max 7’5”

Keep in mind people as gigantic as him can lose a lot of height through the day as well, and gain it too
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
@Junior: it’s possible that he is 7’6 barefoot 7’7 in shoes. Webber was actually trying to indicate how massively tall he is so I doubt he was undercutting his height
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Aug/19
@Canson Chris Webber short playing Muresan by 1". I believe he is at least 7'6 1/2. 7'6 3/4 to 7'7 i buy that too. Gheorghe Muresan is lucky to hit 6'8 now at least not so gigantic as his dad. 6'7-6'8 is like the start being a giant and a big giant dad at 7'7 sounds scary to imagine when they walk out their home together in crowded places especially walk into a mall. Everyones took their sights on them as a normal daily basis. Lol.
Arslan 6'10 210 CM said on 26/Jul/19
The only reason Bradley looks taller is because he is moving his head upwards and also has footwear advantage.

Gheorge is a solid 7’7 barefoot at the least

well...welll... look who is talking... some freaking people that, you probably are like 5 feet some, and you talk crap about Muresan? When you guys arre capable to have his career than talk crap. until then... shut up. he is the tallest 7'7. No matter what you guys u said. He got in draft for NBA.so quit saying crap.
Anonymous said on 20/Jul/06
The damn guys got a 7'10" arm span and you all are saying he's shorter. The only reason why bradley looks taller is because his skinny ass is like 60 lbs lighter. When I first saw him I thought he was 7'8"
