    I hope Adam Woodbury gets invited to the combine some day just for the sheer hilarity of comparing his wingspan to the guards.

    Ejim's group is on ESPN 2 right now FYI. I think Giannis' brother is in that group also.

    I know we love to poke fun at Woodbury but I'd bet he will get a legit shot at the NBA. Still has two years left and although he looks like a goob and can't jump, he has a big body and plays pretty darn hard.

    Interesting that Ejim and Kane measured exactly the 6'7" and 6'4" they were billed as, Kane actually 6'4 1/2".

    Wonder how common it is for programs to add height to players, seems less common than it used to be.

    Not if he only averages 3.9 rebounds and .06 blocks a game like this year, like you said though he has two years. It's not like he has a great jump shot to make up for being a poor rebounder and shot blocker for his size.

    Big body? DeAndre Jordan has a big body.

    Plays pretty darn hard? The NBA is definitely known for valuing try-hard over actual or even perceived talent.

    He'll never make it.

    I'd get measured in Tims if I had to. Add at least 3 inches to your height.

    Fun to see Melvin Ejim right there as they focused in on C.J. Fair.
    Odd to see Ejim wearing #34.

    And he's also 220 pounds and ripped. I'm sure a lot of guys in the NBA have really low body fat.

    Looks like Marcus Smart and Kane are about the same. Smart is little heavier and longer, but Kane is taller and less body fat %. Can't wait to see them go head to head in the NBA!

    Would be great to see that develop into a rivalry, but small chance they both are logging big minutes IMO.

    Those two ISU-OSU games this year were amazing, even aside from the fact we won them both. The Smart/Kane matchup was great.

    Also, why measure without shoes? They will never play a game without shoes on

    Why measure with shoes on? The teams want an accurate measurement of all the players for comparison not find out who wears the thickest soled shoes.
