MissyKevin0444

The Nike Hoop Summit is tomorrow night in Portland, Oregon, which means a good portion of Kentucky’s future team has spent the week practicing, talking to media, and enjoying other all-star festivities. The Hoop Summit released the official measurements for each of the players, and because you need to take a break from watching the news, let’s take a look.

Note: All height measurements are with shoes.

    Tony Delk wasn’t 6 foot tall, was he?

    I recall he was at least 6′-2″ and DID have long arms.

    is it too early to get excited about Karl Towns ? dude is gonna be a physical specimen ! don’t have a clear picture of what his supporting cast will be given the presumed mass exodus after this upcoming year, but he looks to be a centerpiece for the encore

    The cake was a gift from my wife Missy who is a KU grad, so it meant a lot since she’s still pretty bitter about last year.
