How did the NBA combine measurements compare to the UK combine measurements?

Let’s take a look:

Name Height w/o Shoes Height w/shoes Weight Wingspan Reach Body Fat Hand Length Hand Width
Skal Labissiere 6′ 10.5″ 6′ 11.75″ 216 7′ 2.5″ 8′ 9.5″ 5.7 8.75 9
6′ 10.5″ 6′ 11.50″ 225 7′ 2.0″ 9′ 0″ 8.84 10 10.25
Tyler Ulis 5′ 8.75″ 5′ 10″ 149 6′ 2″ 7′ 4.5″ 5.2 7.50 7.50
5′ 8″ 5′ 9″ 160 6′ 1.25″ 7′ 4″ 7.1 7.50 8.25
Marcus Lee 6′ 9” 6′ 10.25″ 211 7′ 3″ 8′ 11.5″ 5.4 9 9
6′ 8” 6′ 9″ 224 7′ 3″ 8′ 11″ 4.9 9.25 9.50
(Preseason combine in blue)

Judging by the numbers, all three players lost weight since last October. It also looks like Skal Labissiere’s hand shrunk during his freshman season at Kentucky — or maybe UK was generous in its measurements.

    Drew…it looks like they lost weight during the season…which would be unusual…

    Horribly done chart. The analysis doesn’t match with the data. They all lost weight and body fat (except lee for the fat).

    Our Hand Width Development Coach needs to be replaced.

      I have so many good comments and, sadly, none are appropriate for a public forum…

    Looks to me like Skal short-armed his standing reach at the combine. He measured taller in shoes, and his wingspan measured longer, but his reach was 2.5″ shorter? Probably trying to maximize his vertical jump measurements.
