Looks like the NBA has new heights and weights up, supposedly using more accurate measurements. The average player got half an inch shorter and 3 points lighter, as compared with how they were listed last season. on.nba.com/2p5cJYTx
Here are the guys who shrunk by 2 inches vs. how they were listed last season. (Nobody yet seems to have shrunk by *more* than 2 inches.) Notables: Beal, Ayton, Mitchell, Ingram, Klay.
Here are the guys who got taller, including LeBron and Durant. Ibaka grew 2 inches. Caveat to all of this: this data just went up today and sometimes newly-posted data has funky things going on with it!
