Question regarding wingspan and height?
So, I read on a website that a basketball player's height is 5'11", his standing reach is 7'8" and his wingspan is 6'4".
I'm 5'11", my standing reach is 7'8" but my wingspan's only somewhere around 6'1", I think. How is that possible?

Wingspan is measured with arms outstretched to the side, from fingertip to fingertip. It should probably be better called arm-span. The player you mention has very long arms and wide shoulders.

Some people have really long limbs.
