    Well if you follow the sacred formula (squats + milk = solution to all of life's problems) then the milk should more than compensate for any negative effect that squats have on height.

    6'11' is just rediculous. 6'5' is pretty much perfect.

    6'5 sucks, because im not tall, but not small enough to guard the little fast guys

    It might not be perfect sport wise, but looks wise 6" to 6'6 is pritty spot on. Your big enough to look imposing without being stupidly tall.
