There is NO sport that can help you grow taller. The only thing that will make you grow taller is genetics and proper nutrition when growing up.

LOL! The ironic thing is that Joe Friel, in his Cyclist's Training Bible, specifically uses the idiotic myth that basketball makes you taller in order to demonstrate how asinine the idea that cycling will turn you into a 130lb climbing wizard is!

You could wear high heels and look taller.

If you turn pro at age 12 and do a metric **** ton of Hgh you will end up with an NBA career at 6' 10".

I'm guessing the OP has discovered that women LOVE tall guys.
3 things can make you taller in their eyes: Money, fame & power.
Cycling only if you win the Tour (see above).
