    Come to think of it. In MD, the shortest, I think, is Kido, who's 1.65 m (5'5"). But his best position is at the back, thundering down smashes, with Setiawan usually killing from the front. He's partnered with Hendra Setiawan, who's 1.81 m (5'11 1/2"). For Asians, this is considerably tall.

    Jung Jae Sung stands 1.68 m (5'6"). Again, like the Indonesian pair, the short players are usually the back players. JJS has got a very high jump, and a tricky jump drop shot if I may add. His partner, Lee Yong Dae, is 1.80 m (5'11"), again, considerably tall, and his favorite position is at the front.

    I guess in MD, a tall and a short player could be a good pair. I guess this is a good combination especially if the tall player blocks everything at the net.

    Look at Boe and Mogensen. Boe is the taller of the two, but their pairing is more effective if Boe is at the front.

    Lee Yong Dae and Lee Hyo Jung are also effective because LHJ, the taller of the two, blocks everything at the net.

    This is just an observation. Care to comment?

    in MD, WD, and XD: height matters. at least one of the players should be tall. see around the top players.

    It seems that you don't know Zhou Mi is as tall as Zhang Ning, and Taufik is clearly taller than LCW (LCW is shorter than 173 and TH definitely taller than that).

    MD: you know Markis. Btw Tony/Candra/Sigit are all not that long.

    So, please make sure what you are going to say before you say something, hehehehe.

    But there're always exceptions out there.
    Jens Erikson is definately the tallest, but not the best right??

    Tyrone Bogues was a good player in NBA and he's short (no more than 170cm). So I guess height does not matter in basket ball.

    Point Guards don't necessarily have to be tall. they can be used solely to set up plays, look for open space and run the team while the other 4 players score baskets. height does matter however if you want to be a good Center. imagine a short Yao Ming.

    in badminton, height without technique is of no use.
    in MD, you cannot have 1 player solely for something. 1 of the players may have a favoured position, whether at the back or the front but if he/she can only ever be good at the front or at the back, then you would have problems.

    Isn't that true for all sports? anything without technique is of no use. Narnia said height matters. It doesn't mean height is everything.
