How tall are the band members?

Rumor has it that the members of ApologetiX are all at least six feet tall. Actually, not a single member is over 5' 18," and the shortest member is only 5' 12."

The "ApologetiX is tall" rumor may have started because of the ApologetiX concert in December 2004 at the Wachovia Center after the Philadelphia 76ers game. Since there were five members of ApologetiX and five starters for the 76ers and both groups play there (ApologetiX plays rock and roll, the Sixers play baskeball), perhaps people mistakenly thought the groups were playing each other.

Further confusing the issue, Sixers star Allen Iverson released a rap album a few years ago, and ApologetiX had the #1 national Christian rap/hip hot single in early 2004. Like ApologeitX, Iverson is also a couple inches short of six feet, at 5'10 or 5'11, so it's easy to see how all those similarities worked together and snowballed to create this tall tale.
