    Default Question for Iverson know it all's

    Anyone know Allen Iverson's true wingspan? I have read somewhere that his wingspan is 6'7 or something but I think it's false...

    people say he has the wingspan of a 7 footer, but I highly doubt that.

    i think i read in one of his many biographies, Fear No One, that he can touch his knee caps standing perfectly straight.

    well some people can too, like I think I can touch my knee caps if I stretch my arms a little while standing straight (without bending over)

    i think it meant without stretching, just standing straight.

    that's impossible, if you see him standing straight, his knees only come down half way to his knees...

    iverson's wingspan isn't as big as some people say. He's so slender though he looks like he has a large wingspan. I'd say his wingspan is 6"3" or so.

    I'm pretty sure your wing span isn't 6'3 if your 5'8. That's about 7 inches > your height... my wingspan is like 6 feet and I'm 5'9 and everyone tells me that i have REALLY long arms... maybe it's because you have a wide upperbody? i doubt that even if you have a wide body you can have a 6'3 wingspan when ur 5'8.

    And what does <u>your</u> wingspan have to do with AI??? I've seen the guy in person atleast three times and I can tell you his arms aren't that long, his wingspan is probably 6"4" or so.

    actually, it's very possible. I'm just above 6"1" and my winngspan is 6"10" and a half or so. Yes i have very longs arms, that in part with the fact that i have really wide shoulders and maybe my slender frame does add up to the wingspan a bit, but not so much i have average length arms. Some people just have really long arms, TheAnwer2 is probably just one of them, I mean i got a friend 5"7" and his wingspan is 6"3".

    I'm pretty thin, and have wide shoulders and long arms, so it's possible...unless I don't exist.

    If my wingspan is the same as Iverson's (to the kid who said AI's was 6'3) and I'm 4 inches shorter then you would definitely notice a shortness in AI's arms. Mine are long, but not freakishly so..
