I am one of the greatest investigators on the internet. I investigated the billboard in New England and realized it was the reason for the bad Eagles start, and I investigate things all the time and find answers. I’m a regular dick. This time I am investigating into the idea that Ben Simmons is not 6’10 he is actually 7’0. Now I have heard rumblings of this over the last few months. People say he is 7 feet others say no he’s 6’10 and usually I ignore it. Now I can no longer ignore it. I must investigate into the accusations that Ben is really 7 feet tall. Let’s look into the evidence.
Picture 1. Markelle Fultz is not 7 feet tall, we can accept that as fact as of now. We do know that Embiid is 7’2 and when looking at this picture of him and Ben it appears he is no more than 2 inches taller than Ben. Now i can look at this and say maybe Joel is hunched a tad, he’s leaning a bit and Ben is standing straight up. You can argue that all you want because there is more evidence that points to Ben being 7 feet tall.
Picture 2. On the court a good angle of both standing next to each other you can clearly see Ben’s hairline is just below Embiids hairline. Let’s take a closer look.
A little bit closer.
Now I can grant you that line isn’t perfectly straight, on top of that in that picture Joel has his head down a little bit. They both are standing straight up however, and if Embiid picks his head up that would lead me to believe he has a full 2 inches on Ben. Making Ben 7 feet tall. It doesn’t stop there however.
Picture 3. Joel and Ben standing face to face eye to eye, possibly the best angle of all the pictures I’ve shown. Ben has his head down a little bit and Joel is perfectly straight, you can easily see that Ben if he were to pick his head up is no more than 2 inches shorter than Joel Embiid who again is standing at 7’2.
I think that is safe to assume Ben Simmons is a 7 foot tall point guard with moves like a guy standing at 6’4. He is looking to become the most dangerous player in the NBA and I am here for it, unless he goes to LA. This case however is closed. Ben Simmons is 7 feet tall.
P.S.- Can people start giving this man his respect? I know he doesn’t have a jump shot but let him grow into that position. He is so great with the ball in his hand and such a play maker give him time. It’s his *second season playing in the NBA, he’s still dropping 17/9/8 a night without a jumper and is a beast on defense. Dont focus on what he can’t do and start to look at everything he can do. Be thankful he is a Sixer.
*I know he’s been in the NBA for three years, don’t be a fucking moron, it’s this second year PLAYING.
