NBA playheight have changed

I’ve been playing with the 2k roster since before the trade deadline. I’ve created a custom roster, updating every players accessories and correct shoes . When I checked out the latest roster some players heights were changed . Kyle Kuzma is listed as 6’10” but in the original 2k roster he is listed as 6’8”. Dennis Schroeder is listed as 6’3” but is listed as 6’1” in the older roster. What is funny is that at 6’1” Schroeder and Kuzma’s height look more accurate on the older roster.
Schroeder looks too tall at 6’3”. Anyone else notice this with other players ?

2k’s players have always looked too tall. If you drop everyone’s height 2 inches, the game plays and looks so much better

I thought about doing this. Is it really that big of a difference?

I have. In an older MyNBA Ben Simmons was 6'10". Now he's 6'11" in whatever trade deadline roster I'm using now. I also noticed that Bradley Beal went from 6'5" a few years ago down to 6'3".

Re: NBA playheight have changed

These player heights are old and it shows 2K's lack of effort.

A lot of the player heights were updated last year, 2K just never updated it.

Gilbert Arenas talked about this last year on his podcast about how players are only really measured before draft.

He always talked about players true height, he would mention LeBron at 6'10".

I use multiple sites and pictures for player heights.

Yeah they updated height and weight last year but 2K never updated all the players.

What is considered offical (ESPN, NBA, CBS Sports)?

I've seen them all not matching with height and weight. 2K just updated them but their height and weight has been out for 3-6 months.

Whatever is listed is what is given by teams and that is done before they're drafted. KD was 6'9" for 10 years when it was known he was almost 7'.

I get what you're saying but 2K's roster always lacked correct accessories, shoe brand, tendencies, height, and weight for years.

Well he was measured two(?) years ago without shoes being 6'10. This was updated on NBA.com (using all measurements without shoes) and 2k used those numbers and updated him in 2k20 already.
You can bash 2k for many things, but the height of players is correct, by the leading league website.

Agree on everything else though..
