I'm approximately 6" to 6"1, and in the 7th grade. Needless to say, I've played centre most of my life. Should I continue working on my big man skills, or will I top out as a shooting guard? Should I try and small forward skills? I asked my doctor, and she said I could end up being from 6"5 to 6"8. My mom is 5"6.5, and my dad is 6"2. Most of my family is quite tall.
Thanks for the help in advance.
70%-80% of your height is controlled by genes. the docter projected this from genes, the other 20%-30% you can gain. i suggest you sit up in class your spine needs to be straight. drink milk. if you do this you will probably be 6'9 or even 6'10!

your gonna be tall but if your gonna be 6'8.you need to practice being a sg or small forward because if you go to the nba they will probaly put you at small forward.i am 5'8in the 7 grade. i play small forward. i also have great ball handeling just in case i have to play point guard sometimes.i do on my team. my mom is 5'6 and my dad is 6'3. my uncle is 6'9.my docter i could grow up to 6'7.

Work like hec on your skills to play shooting guard or small forward. You can never be a good enough ball handler and shooter and having guard skills saves you no matter what happens with your height. If you stop short at like 6'2 or 6'3 than you can play PG with the skills you have. If you grow to 6'7 or 6'9 you can be like a lebron or durant with the skills. And hec if you make it to 6'10 and up, with those skills, you will be dominant like a Dirk or Larry Bird
