ok....here is chance to eyeball Tatum s real height . Vs KD who we know is a solid 7ft er.
see how they size up.
No not sure if this is serious or joking but Kevin Durant's rookie combine measurement in 2007 without shoes was 6'-9". He is currently listed as 6'-10" on Brooklyn Nets official team website.
Now Durant growing approximately 1" in 13 years is something I believe as possible but I have a hard time believing that Tatum grew and is now the same size as him. I think it is great that they issue real measurements now. There were clearly a lot of phony measurements being referenced.
As to the game, it is tough on the Celtics right now with 4 key players injured, 3 of which (Walker, Theis, Thompson) are potential starters. You are basically throwing out combinations that have never played together and have hardly practiced together. Hard to make any judgments on players or the team as a whole under the circumstances other than to expect a slow start to the season.
