I was supposed to be 6'9, but topped out at 6'6". I play Bball and lots of other sports. My brother was supposed to be 6'6", and has little interest in sports. He topped out at 7'1". He would gladly give me his height if he could, as he's a pretty shy introvert and hates the attention it gives him. He tried basketball, but even at that height your heart needs to be in it at least a little bit to go anywhere. I guess I'm lucky in the sense that I don't need specially made clothing or beds or have very little selection in shoes (my 14's are much easier to find then his 19's). Had I got those extra 7 inches though, I think I would have made enough money playing sports to buy bespoke everything.
