That is his actual height. For some reason the NBA also gives us his height with shoes. Suddenly Beal is 6'4.75". So Beal says he measures in at 6'4 and the sports world happily reports that. But he isn't. He's only 6'3. What's more I have no idea what a 'good' height is in the NBA because I don't know what they use historically or how tall some of the current players are.
-Bradley Beal (6'3.25 without shoes, 6'8 wingpsan, 202 pounds) is almost a mirror image of the average SG in our measurements database (6'3.5 without shoes, 6'7.8 wingspan, 201 pounds). He matches up well with past shooting guard prospects like O.J. Mayo (6'3.25 without shoes, 6'6 wingspan, 200 pounds) and Maurice Ager (6'3.25 without shoes, 6'7.75 wingspan, (203 pounds). Much has been made of Beal as a potential Ray Allen type shooter, and Allen measured in at 6'5 without shoes on in 1996 as a point of reference.
