Height and Athletic Ambition

It has more to do with than just height. When i was in highschool i played basketball with two twin brothers who were about an inch or so taller than me and i’m 6’3". They were both uncoordinated and sucked. They could get rebounds but that was about it. I am very coordinated and have a great jump shot. I think part of it has to do with genetics while the other part is how much dedication and practice you put into it.

On another note, i love being tall.[/quote]

The uncoordinated part makes me laugh. I remember being 14-18 when I wasn’t quite used to my body yet. 4 years of constant bruises from walking into things and tripping over my own legs. Like somebody else said, being tall isn’t a cake walk. We spend years getting used to our bodies, and most of us don’t fill in until our 20s, some even later.
