The effect size doesn't directly translate to how important it is. A small effect could be argued to be very signifcant and a large effect could be argued to be of low impact althought it takes somewhat more mental gymnastic for that magnitude.

Someone could say that since good basket ball players tend to be tall one should try to reqcruit only tall players. That can easily be heightist. A non-heightist would like to check their running speed and team play ability which could easily make up for small to moderate shortcomings in height. Given similar running speed and team play ability a tall player would be preferable, but a non-heightist doesn't stop their data collection once they hear the player is tall.

Suppose we consider a Mbuti or Efe teenager who is very fast and an excellent team player. Do you think that with adequate training he can become a top league professional basketball player?
