NBA Draft Combine: Shoe-spiracy -- Which players cheated on height the most?

Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE

Every year you get some really funny stuff, mostly Duke guys, who are just way taller than we know they are. The classic Example in my mind is Shane Battier being like 6'10 in shoes at the draft combine in his year. See, Duke guys. Anyway, the shoes used at the combine are not standardized. As a result, there are height variations that need to be recognized -- someone may measure "better" but he may only be better because his shoes are better paired up with a strapless, black evening gown. (*I'm talking about high heels!* #ChristianLouboutin)

I looked at all the dudes who were measured with and without shoes, and then converted that data into the Shoe Cheater Index . . . and guess which guys cheated the most?
