  1. couple of comments:

    1. why is Jeremy not on NBA.com's list of players?

    2. I'm surprised that Lin is listed at his height without shoes. 6'3" Most NBA players under 7' list their height with shoes. For example, both Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry use their with-shoes height of 6'3". The implication is that Lin is only 6'1" or 6'2" true height.

  2. 1. Don't worry, he will be on the list once the preseason starts. Here is his summer league stats:

    2. I believe that the player can ask to be listed with their shoes if they want. This adds 1" to 1.5" to most players true height.
