Removed the aside on Bogut - he may have the potential to be Australia's best ever, but his achievements are nowhere near Longley's or Gaze's yet. It detracted from the clarity of the essential point of the sentence - that most Australians regard Gaze as our best-ever (at present) despite Longley's NBA career and Gaze's lack of a significant one. --Robert Merkel 04:19, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Surely classing Gaze as Australia's "best ever" is not NPOV? I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who disagree with this statement, and would put other people as the best Australian basketball players. What about Phil Smyth? Ricky Grace (although not born in Australia, he was an Australian citizen, and played most of his basketball here)? Mark Bradtke? Luc Longley? Koberulz 14:00, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Height is not 6'7". I remember Gaze on multiple occasions give his height as 6'3". He was not known as one of the taller players, like Shane Heal who was 6'0".

Who on earth came up with 6'7"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:21, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

He is 6'7" - he just didn't play like a man who was 6'7". I remember being shocked to find out he was taller than Michael Jordan! Gaze was taller than he appeared to be on court. -- Mattinbgn (talk) 23:02, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
I specifically remember an appearance on Hey Hey It's Saturday with Gaze and Heal. Gaze was taller than Heal, who gave his height as 6'0" (but still towering over the short host) and Gaze said he was 6'3". He was definitely not from memory 7" taller than Heal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:22, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
