Basketball favors tall atheletes, so most high-level basketball players are tall. If basketball favored short atheletes, most pro basketball players would be short.

Hey Ironman, there is one guy that does it. He shows up in an ongoing thread with an LOL, then puts in a bunch of dots which are all links to spam. I was looking all over this post for that type of thing.

And the last question:
Will I became taller if I stretch my abs? I probably know the answer but I want to be sure.

No, eating right and being active will help you grow to your genetic potential, but genetics are what will determine how tall you will be when you grow up.
