After surpassing Jordan's 6'6'' height, he refused to be measured.
The summer before his sophomore year, LeBron sprouted over six inches (at six feet he was already a top-five AAU prospect). After that, James refused to be measured because he wanted to retain his anonymity, saying "I don't want anybody to know my identity. I'm like a superhero. Call me: 'Basketball Man.'" Tough secret to keep when you're that tall and the top basketball player in the country.
