Dave McMenamin of ESPN provided a breakdown of height changes for the Los Angeles Lakers:
While the four-time MVP went from 6'8" to 6'9", fellow superstar Anthony Davis dropped from 6'11" to 6'10".
This all stems from the league's requiring teams to provide precise measurements of players without shoes, via Marc Stein of the New York Times.
In the past, players and organizations had more leeway when they listed official heights.
For LeBron, being 6'9" makes his style of play slightly more impressive, as he showcases point guard skills in a power forward's body.
Meanwhile, Davis said this summer he prefers playing the 4 rather than center. His sudden drop to 6'10" may force the issue for the Lakers.
