I think marlou's listed height of 6'9" should be re-checked...that was his listed height ever since his college days and i think he is a little taller than that now...i saw him in person before together with other tall players like andy seigle, samigue eman, yancy de ocampo and mick penissi and appears to be at least an inch taller than them...i remember he was listed at 6'11" when he played for the 1998 centennial team which i think is a little exgerated to scare of other asian teams during that time... but i think he is 6'10"...he is at least 2 inches taller than asi taulava who is listed at 6'9" but i put asi at 6'8" the most...james walkvist is 6'10" and appears to be as tall as marlou...6'10" junmar fajardo and 6'11 5/8"greg slaughter should be included in the list together with 6'9" japeth aguilar...there is another pinoy who stands 6'11", his name is jericho de guzman who last played for FEU team B and CSB Blazers.
