Average Height and Weight of NBA/ABA Players: 1946-2013

The average height of professional basketball players skyrocketed from the 1940s through the early 1980s, at which point it plateaued. But what is impressive is the increase in average weight from the early 90s through early 2000. While the average height stayed the same, the average player gained 15 pounds over that period of time.

The return of small ball is also starting to show in the data, as the average height and weight of players has been decreasing over the past five years.
