Lukaku is the same height as Yarmolenko but Yarmolenko is actually winger . It is rare to see winger of his height .

What a rhetorical question...
In soccer to play like Messi you need a low center of gravity
on basket you need to be tall in order the make a point

Exactly. Height in soccer wouldn't serve anything other than maybe being able to jump higher than others to head a ball. A 6'5 guy is going to have a hard time rapidly changing direction, maintaining balance, pivoting, etc., versus a 5'11 man.

In basketball, a short guy is much easier to block, and can't attack the rim nearly as effectively as a taller player.
