How tall is Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley's Height

6ft 4.75in (195 cm)

American former Basketball player.
I'm 6-4 3/4 [6ft 6] just sounded good coming out of college.
They lie...I’ve been measured at 6-5, 6-4 ΒΎ. But I started in college at 6-6.
I claimed to be 6-6 when I played, but I'm only 6-5 1/2
What's so startling about the numbers is another number: his height of 6-foot-4....In 10th grade, pudgy and merely 5-foot-10, he failed to make his high school varsity squad...A 6-inch growth spurt his senior year led to a scholarship

How tall is Charles Barkley

It was in the run-up to the 1992 Olympics that the world finally learned what the cognoscenti had long suspected -- that Charles Barkley was more like 6-4 5/8 than 6-6, and Magic Johnson closer to 6-7 than 6-9.
- Sports Illustrated
[When] Barkley questioned [Tiger] Woods' listed height of 6-foot-2, Woods responded by saying, "every program said you were 6-6. you're no more than 6-4 on a good day."

I mean come on, look at Barkley with 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon! Here's a still: Click Here And here's video: Click Here That's an easy 6+ inches. Jimmy looks tiny next to Barkley. The idea that's only 5 inches is incredible, Fallon would come up to Barkley's eyes if that were true, yet even when Barkley is slouching and hunching, he can look clear over Jimmy's hair. A near enough 5'11" Hugh Grant looks noticeably smaller even. Here are more stills: Click Here Click Here Click Here That's not how a solid 6'4" guy looks next to 180-182 cm men. For a comparison, look at Jensen Ackles, who is probably slightly taller than Fallon, even without his boots, he's much closer to Jared Padalecki's height(widely agreed to be a solid 6'4") than Fallon is to Barkley. It's not even close. There's no way Hulk Hogan was ever taller than Barkley, much less over an inch. I have both at 6'5.5", but I see a much better chance of Barkley peaking at 6'6" than Hulk.

-----

Fallon's actually more 5'11" flat. So Barkley being 6 inches taller makes him 6'5", not 6'5.5" Plus he had a slight footwear advantage over Fallon, so 6'4.75" makes sense.

@Rising force Barkley head is nearer the camera and Has better posture and is not tilting down his head Like ISIAH. Still I believe he looks 6'5 and change . I Still believe barkley is around 196 much more than 6 '4.5 range. He Could have been measured at 6 4.5 5/8 or 3/4 whatever but he not necesserily Was standing at his tallest. He look with more often a good 6'5 than just a 6'4er

Barkley looking more than 5 inches taller than 6'1" Isiah Thomas: Click Here If Isiah is under 6'1" that's bad news for Will Smith, but even if he were 6'0", Barkley still looks to clear 6'5" as Isiah's head is lucky if it's halfway up Barkley's nose.

I never said anything about low heights, I Go By midday. That's more than an inch shorter than Barkley. Closer to 2", 1.5" minimum and that's what I'm talking about, to really argue Barkley under 6'5", you have to make everyone shorter. Kobe often looks more 6'5"+ to me. If Vanessa measured accurately, then it was probably his low height. Arby, there's no proof of any 6'4.5" measurement whatsoever. Mike Gminski was listed 6'11", let's say for the sake of argument that's in shoes. Barkley still looks 6'7" in shoes with him: Click Here Btw, looking at Barkley with Webber again, he actually does look 6'5.5" since his bald head reaches around Webber's eyebrows, almost exactly where Rock reached on Barkley in the full pic. The pic with Gminski and the mugshot are further proof Barkley is the equivalent of a typical NBA listed 6'7", or the league average height, but most his position are at least around 6'9"-6'10" in shoes or taller. Everyone always talked about how tall Magic was at his position, which is how his height got exaggerated so much in the opposite direction. To think so many thought Magic was 6-9 and Barkley 6-4, even listing Magic 6'7.5" and Barkley 6'4.75" doesn't add up as I posted a half dozen pics of them and Barkley is 1.5" shorter or at most 2". Barkley can look more 6'5" than 6'6" at times, but never convincingly under.

@Rising force: so if harden really is 6'4" at his lowest (doubt it because they take place in the morning and he looks at least an inch under Kobe) my guess is 6'3" and change 191-192. Barkley is an inch taller so 6'4.5. You have to remember height varies throughout the day. So if harden measures Between 6'3.75-6'4" (that's the range as he would be rounded up if he's a hair over the 1/4" in the AM) then Barkley measures 6'4 5/8 later in the day that's how they would look naturally. Just because one measures taller doesn't mean you have to inflate the others. As for your downplaying comments Kobe at 6'4.75 (assuming that's his lowest) what's the issue with him saying 6'4" and Barkley at 6'4.5 what's the problem with him saying 6'4"? They don't have to round up just because others do. I am also close to 6n4.5 and I just claim 6'4" myself when I'm a hair over 6'5" when I wake up 195.8cm and about 194 at my lowest usually. There's no rule saying I have to round up even if I were 195 at my lowest there is no rule so those two aren't downplaying anything

Harry: don't get it either. I've had coworker who used to work with me at the airport and he's 6'7" and next to Charles was 3" taller almost. The Suns players that played in the 90s with him say he's 6'4 not 6'5 or 6'6. We have seem almost every player who has ever played for the Suns and Diamondbacks and also met many from both teams. 6'4 1/2" is the most he is and what he measured in the NBA in 1992
RisingForce said on 14/May/17
James Harden was measured exactly 6'4" without shoes and isn't even close to Barkley's height here: Click Here 6'4.75" Lennox Lewis is closer to the camera, seems to have better posture and is still a bit shorter than Barkley: Click Here Barkley is easily taller than 6'4.25" Michael Strahan as well: Click Here

We don't know what Barkley actually measured. Pre-draft measurements don't go back that far. There's simply a mention in a Sports Illustrated article, but the one list of Olympic heights I saw just knocked 2" off everyone's NBA listing, except Stockton who they put only 1" lower at 6'0", but they even had Larry Bird at 6'7". If you accept such a vague report mentioned in only one article, then you must acknowledge Dwyane Wade's 6'3.75" measurement, which makes Barkley comfortably over 6'5" in comparison. And yes, my evidence is how people are typically estimated here, by visual evidence. Off the top of my head, there's only been really one photo where Barkley looked convincingly shorter, which is the one with Webber and Mahorn. As for Sprewell, checking his pre-draft measurement, he's supposed to have actually measured 6'4.5". I can't say if that's more accurate, or if he's 6'4" based on my experience, but if we're going to read so much into a supposed measurement for Barkley then we can't ignore it. Either way, Barkley does look noticeably taller than Sprewell: Click Here Watch around 0:43, Sprewell looks noticeably shorter when he's not hopping. But it seems I could literally post a hundred comparisons where Barkley looks 6'5.5"-6'6" and it will be ignored, as well as Barkley standing in front of a height chart at 6'7" in shoes, which is as close to a measurement as we have. The important point is a logical one. If I'm not mistaken, the other case rests on a typical perception of players, but as I've said repeatedly, the same case can be made to support Kevin Durant at 6'11" or 7 feet, so unless you want to accept that, we must admit that at a certain point, how tall they actually look becomes more important. There's just no way around it when you commit to this "players say Barkley is shorter" because just as many say Durant is well over 6'9" as well, so either you have to give around Durant 6'11" or 7 feet, or there must be a reason you don't believe this either, probably because you think he LOOKS shorter, am I correct? If that's the case then the Barkley debate must be settled by how tall he looks. HarrySachs, Barkley had stated he was a plain old 6'4", 6'4 1/2", 6'4 3/4", 6'5" and 6'5 1/2". So we know Barkley sometimes gives an incorrect height since he can't possibly be all those heights and the fact that Barkley has given himself only 6'4" shows he'll downgrade his height because there's just no way to argue he was a flat 6'4". Actually, I found a really important quote:

"I feel I'm the best player in the world. Michael Jordan? He's a 6-6 guard. Everybody expects him to do what he's doing. I'm a 6-4 forward. No one expects me to do what I've done.
''I think what I have accomplished at 6-4 will never be accomplished again,'' Barkley said. ''There will never be another 6-4 player that can play inside like myself.

That tells us so much because it shows Barkley's reason for downgrading himself, he's saying himself that it makes his accomplishments more impressive. Also, Canson at least conceded Barkley was probably slightly taller than Jordan yet here is Barkley describing Jordan as 6'6" and 6'4"! This shows what Barkley says should be taken with a grain of salt. Also, HarrySachs, the attitude that my opinion is baseless, is pretty obnoxious. I'd say the fact that we have Barkley standing in front of a height chart at 6'7" in shoes is at least reason to question the conventional wisdom since the only height Barkley has given that adds up with his mugshot is 6'5.5".
HarrySachs said on 13/May/17
Charles Barkley stated he was 6'4 3/4 yet people still want to believe he was taller.
RisingForce said on 12/May/17
I will add, I just now saw Rob's comment that Hugh Jackman doesn't stand perfectly with his hip or knee, but Jackman was close to the camera and Barkley didn't stand perfectly either so still 4 inches. Jackman is at least 6'1.5" so Barkley looks a good 6'5.5" in comparison. No way is he under 6'5" with Hugh.
Canson said on 11/May/17
Rising force: I agree Sprewell is about 6'4". Barkley isn't 1.5" taller than he is. Again when almost everyone who comments on his height both in people who have met him commentators and MBA players why would they say he's 6'4" when he isn't? Your logic has no merit and is based on pictures. Sorry but I agree with Arny. He has met him as has a friend of mine who is his height almost at a solid 6'3" that said the same thing as he did

You brought up the mugshot where Rob mentioned clearly that he is looking down at the camera which adds height. Maybe 6'6" in a good shoe 6'4.5 barefoot. 6'7 in shoes would make him as tall as Reggie miller when he's clearly shorter

I've seen no evidence Malone was only 6'9" and if that was true, that would make Dr. J shorter than 6'5.5" and then look how Clyde Drexler measured up to an aged Moses: Click Here Clyde's head only reaches Malone's eyes and Clyde isn't a flat 6'5", much less 6'4.5", which he'd have to be to make Moses 6'9". Note an aged Elvin Hayes looking near 3 inches shorter than Moses as well. Asserting Dr. J was taller than Barkley doesn't make it so. As for Mo Cheeks, if Barkley were 6'4" then how tall does that make Mo? Click Here He's lucky if he's within 5 inches of Barkley and Dr. J is only standing a bit behind Barkley there, so it's highly unlikely from that Dr. J was taller. But we don't have to guess about camera advantage here as they're side by side and the two are identical in height: Click Here Btw, here's Barkley making 6'3.25"-6'3.5" guys like Kevin Sorbo and Seal look short: Click Here Rob has met Sorbo. Also, I forgot to mention, it's worth noting in those Dream Team photos where Barkley isn't much shorter than Pippen that Barkley is also pretty much the exact same height as Chris Mullin, who was always listed 6'7". Obviously, that was a shoe height, but Mullin isn't under 6'5". I saw Mullin's former teammate, Latrell Sprewell in person off the court when he was with the Knicks and he's definitely a legit 6'4". And again, those statements are no more proof of Barkley being 6'4" than statements prove Durant is a 7 footer or 6'11" minimum or the numerous times Flip Saunders said Kevin Garnett was 7'1".
Arby said on 10/May/17
6'4 and change no more no less. he measured 6'4 1/2 in 92 that is correct.
RisingForce said on 10/May/17
Of course I know about the 6'4.75" claim, but I think he let the truth slip with the 6'5.5". No less can explain the 6'7" he looked in shoes when he was arrested. The Chick Hearn thing is meaningless since how many announcers have you heard insist Kevin Durant is 6'11" or 7 feet? Or the announcers I heard insist Kevin Garnett was 7'1" for a decade. No less than 6'9" Chris Webber who was an NBA listed 6'10" calls Durant 7 feet all the time despite the fact they're probably about the same height. In both cases, it could be exaggerating for effect. Either the undersized power forward or the very tall wing. Their physiques also add to it. Durant is thin with an insane wingspan making him seem taller while Barkley is stocky, which can make someone seem shorter. Really, we have to stick to what they look. Neither of Barkley's claims prove anything especially since they contradict each other, but I do think it'd be strange for a guy like Barkley who is always mentioning his relative lack of height to lie and claim 6'5.5" in the context of that quote since he's admitting they rounded up his height. Hell, Patrick Ewing once claimed to be 6'9" in an interview with Mutombo and Yao, when as a Knick fan I'd bet a large sum Ewing was at least around 6'11" barefoot.
Canson said on 9/May/17
@Rising Force: Malone is 6'9" not 6'10. That's in shoes. Oh and Moses Malone was one of the ones along with Dr J and Mo cheeks that called Barkley 6'4". Doc is taller than Barkley is
RisingForce said on 8/May/17
I doubt Rock is only 188 cm since at age 30, he could look a solid 6'3" in sandals. I'm sure he can look it with the bad posture he usually has, but he's stretched up in the photo with Barkley. In the full shot, Rock's head reaches the top of Barkley's eyebrows, but I've seen no evidence of a footwear advantage, however, it is obvious Rock has the posture advantage with Barkley slouching and even still that's every bit of an 8 cm difference or slightly over 3". In this closeup with Barkley seemingly standing straight, Rock's head actually only reaches Barkley's eyes! Click Here Anyone can draw a line if they don't believe me. In that pic, it's 4.5" IF Barkley has an average sized head, which is unlikely since he's not an average height man. The posture difference in the full shot is bigger than any possible footwear difference, which would only be 1/4", if that. There's just no way Barkley looks less than 6'5" with Rock even if Rock were only a flat 6'2". Onto another comparison, Moses Malone looked around 6'10", as you can see here with 6'5.5" minimum Dr. J: Click Here Just like Barkley looked at least as tall side by side with Dr. J, Barkley actually measures up better to Moses here as his head reaches the top of Malone's eyebrow: Click Here Barkley has better posture, but Moses is potentially a bit closer to the camera. Either way, that's 4.5" max even considering posture.
Canson said on 8/May/17
He has also said he's 6'4.75 and that was in the 80s. Chick Hearn also claims he isn't even 6'5" here.

In a 1993 interview, Charles Barkley said he was 6'5 and 1/2". Considering that he was 34, that was probably an accurate assessment on Barkley's part, and it was probably his peak height. I don't think he has shrunk more than 1 inch by age 54.
Arby said on 6/May/17
You all need to remember that athletes are overlisted some more than others. I'm 6'3-6'3.25 and have stood next to many 6'4 or 6'5" listed Suns players and other NBA players that pass through the airport and we are very much the same height. I've met Charles Barkley well over 100 times and have even eaten lunch with him and he is not much taller than I am 1-1.5" is it. He's not 6'5 let alone 6'6" like he's billed in the paper. A former coworker himself is 6'7 and we met Michael Finley once when he played here.. Finley is supposed to be 6'7". To put it in perspective he had Finley by about 1.5" standing next to him. next to Charles he was close to 3" taller than him
Canson said on 6/May/17
@NFL nerd: rock's head is clearly above Barkley's eyebrow. Look at the crown on rock's head it's at most a 3" difference from Barkley's crown at the top. I agree with Christian it's a 6-7cm difference where a 188cm rock puts Barkley 194-195. Barkley does have a footwear advantage on him
RisingForce said on 5/May/17
They're standing side by side in your pic as well, but certainly photos where you can't see much more than their heads aren't ideal, much less one off photo. I agree the difference is likely more than just 1", but in the near full photo it can look about 1.5". Even in your photo, I see 2" absolute max if you look at top of the head rather than eye level, which would add up with Magic listed here at 6'7.5" and Barkley at 6'5.5", though I think 6'7.25" and 6'5.5" is very possible or 6'5.75" for Barkley. The distance between the tops of their heads is really not that big. Magic's raised eye level makes the difference look larger, but if you created a scale using their head size for reference, I'm confident the difference would be an absolute max of 2".
Canson said on 2/May/17
@Rising Force: side by side is not the best way back to back is. Side by side can be favored by the camera as well. Magic is not only 1" taller than Barkley is which is how it loOks in one pic you posted
RisingForce said on 1/May/17
Canson, side by side pics are the best for comparing height, but even if you disagree regard the first series, then how about the pic after that. You can almost see their entire bodies and that's not remotely close to 3". Then in the one after that, Magic is actually closer to the camera and still doesn't look near 3" taller.
Canson said on 1/May/17
Rising force: the pic with magic is horrendous. Yes he will appear the same height because they aren't that far apart. You'd need to be 6-8" different to see it. Again look at Reggie millers hall of fame speech with magic and Barkley and it's about 3" same with Barkley and Malone it's 3.5" prob. One of the pics magic is clearly leaning and still looks 2" taller with the lean

RisingForce said on 29/Apr/17
I'm not sure I even see a full 3" there with Magic, especially since Magic is tilting his head more and raising his eye level. The 1992 pic with Pippen wasn't at all poor, it's as good as you're going to find and certainly The Rock pic, Larry Johnson pic, Hugh Jackman pic, Samuel L Jackson pic, Michael Jordan pics and Dr. J pics. You can see more of their bodies in this series of pics and Barkley is just barely shorter: Click Here Click Here Click Here And here's another, this time, nearly a full pic where Barkley looks 1.5" max shorter: Click Here Same here, though not as close to a full pic: Click Here And not a big difference here, though it's from that same side angle as the Kobe pic: Click Here I'm fine with calling that a bad pic if you like, but then you have to put the Kobe pic in the same category since the angle is almost identical. Whether these pics are represenative of the actual difference, it at least must be said that I have legitimate reason to believe the difference between Barkley and Magic is only 1.5" or 2" absolute max and at least that a case can be made Barkley is 6'5.5" minimum(certainly with the mugshot pic in front of a height chart). I'd similarly acknowledge a case can be made for 6'4.75"-6'5" flat, though I obviously think he's taller. But I'm not sure why we're still talking about random internet posters. For one, we don't even know all of them actually met Barkley or that they're the height they claim, 2.We have no way of knowing how well they can judge height. There's a reason Rob no longer accepts photos from posters he hasn't seen in person.
Canson said on 29/Apr/17
So Rising Force in this pic Magic is quite clearly 3" or more taller than Barkley is. I already know what's coming next. Point is you can't use pics that have poor perspective which is the norm on this Charles Barkley page.

Canson said on 29/Apr/17
Rising Force: I do respect you and that's fair for your opinion. However what you said In that last post is actually correct for most of those guys. People you see on the internet have said popped is 6'6.5 barefoot. I've seen it more than one place. Wade at 6'2.75 makes sense as well. Dr J is taller than barkley by a full inch bit the same height or shorter. The pics you use aren't very good. Dr J himself has said that. And magic is 3" taller than Barkley is. By the way Jordan, Christian is right he's 6'4.5. That along with Barkley are confirmed by people who have met both (one of which has met Dr J and said he's taller than both guys as well). Seagal peak was 6'4" maybe but today is only about 6'3.5 and coincidentally only an inch shorter than Barkley not 2".

The rock is wearing boots with Charles. Hes worn that pair frequently, including on his page phot here. Zoom here to see how thick they are on the rooftop pic with the fast crew: Click Here

@Canson

I'm not sure what method your using to level the rocks head in that pic. A simple flat device like a ruler clearly shows his head is lines up right where Charles eyebrows meet with the bridge of his nose.

In the better full shot pic, Click Here ,his head lines up with the highest point of Charles left eyebrow.
RisingForce said on 27/Apr/17
Quite the contrary, Christian. You have to downgrade far more people to fit Barkley at under 6'5". Suddenly, that means Rock is only about 6'1.5", Hugh Jackman is not even 6'1", Julius Erving is also under 6'5", Scottie Pippen would be more 6'6.5" as opposed to his 1987 reportedly measured height of 6'7.5". You admit Barkley looks about half an inch taller than Jordan, while Rob has Jordan at 6'5"(which seems about right, especially since he can look taller with Dwyane Wade), but to fit Barkley at a weak 6'5" max, you need Jordan only 6'4.5". Then you'd have Kenny Smith at about a flat 6 feet. Magic Johnson would be comfortably under 6'7" since there's absolutely no way he's 3" taller than Barkley. Dwyane Wade would also have to be more 6'2.75" than 6'3.75" and you certainly can't read much into Barkley's supposed measurement if you disregard Wade's. Steven Seagal also winds up more 6'2.5". But thanks, Canson. As long as we remain respect since it'd be silly to have a lack of respect over a very unimportant issue like this. It'd probably take the fun out of it if I didn't have anyone to disagree with as well.
Canson said on 27/Apr/17
@Markus: sorry but he was actually measured at 6'4 5/8 and has claimed 6'4.75 long enough since entering so he had to have measured both at some point whether morning or evening. What is more likely is these unmeasured unverified celebs you use aren't what they actually claim and the fact that you are using pictures. To compare. Pics are no good 90% of the time on this site. And it's funny that some pics work to the advantage of the poster that is posting. Meaning if you can't see footwear it's good enough to make someone taller but another pic with someone else where you can't see their feet is not good enough if Barkley appeared his true height of 194-195
Canson said on 27/Apr/17
@Rising force: your logic btw in that last post makes no sense. You said even if "Pippen is 6'7 instead of 6'7.5" Barkley is 6'5.5. So you just said Barkley is 2" shorter than pippen. Now you're saying it's 1.5" just to keep Barkley at 6'5.5. Also why do we have to believe Pippens pre draft but not the Olympic measurement Barkley received? I'm sorry but Pippen has also had major back and knee surgeries more than once and early in his career. He easily could've dropped some height. And Pippen is not 6'7.5 barefoot. I'm sorry but after Allen Iverson was listed 6'0" on his (I know for a fact he's 5'10-5'11) that they aren't always accurate. Remember scotties predraft has him listed as a barefoot height only not a shoe height. Why would they list him 6'7" then for most of his career than 6'8"? He'd have been listed 6'8/6'9 if he were really almost 6'9" in shoes or over 6'8". Btw if you look at the blazers teams he doesn't look "really any" taller than Steve Smith who is listed 6'6.5 barefoot. In fact smith can look taller. And he doesn't look more than maybe 0.5-1" taller than Jalen Rose who is listed 6'6" barefoot. There's a better chance of pippen being 6'6.75-6'7 which he looks and Barkley 6'4 5/8.

Also why do your pictures where we can't see Seagal's shoes carry weight to you but the others here where we can't see his footwear with the ines I posted don't? You just proved that your biased that's it
Canson said on 27/Apr/17
@Rising Force: Malone out of his own mouth when interviewed once said in response to someone asking him how tall he is whether he was 6'9" "actually I'm 6'8". That's his barefoot height. I respect your opinion as we all differ but I agree with Christian you have single handedly inflated 3 or 4 people just to make Barkley 6'5.5. Like Christian also said Jordan is 6'4.5 two friends who have met both (Barkley twice) said they're the same height and we are talking an NBA scout (my former AAU coach who is 6'2) and another friend who is 6'3. I don't think when you add them to the people I've posted below that they are that incompetent that they would mistake a 6'5.5 guy for a 6'4.5 especially when one of the posts the guy was 6'6" saying he was taller than Barkley before.
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
@Christian: yes I agree with what you said. If that's his low means his height out of bed would likely be 197. And I doubt Barkley is that high.the logic is flawed there. I respect Rising Forces opinion. But that made no sense and it's just upgrading him for no reason
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 26/Apr/17
@RisingForce

Saying that Barkely's 6'5.5" means that you have to inflate other celebs' height to be consistent. You inflated most of the people you mentioned below so that you can fit your narrative of Barkley really being 6'5.5"
The absolute most I could give for him is 6'5" flat, although it's a bit unlikely. He can look a half inch taller than Jordan at times though, but that doesn't make him 6'5.5", since Jordan himself isn't 6'5", he's more 6'4.5" actually (there's a lot of evidence I can give you that Jordan's 6'4.5")
RisingForce said on 26/Apr/17
Fair enough, Christian, I'm 5'9" around noon in Converse and a hoodie, so I don't have personal experience with how much tall men shrink. I was just speculating because Barkley overwhelmingly looks 6'5.5"+ to me and it seems impossible he's any lower, but then I believe he's simply downplaying or was undermeasured once and the 6'5.5" was his true, honest height. Canson, I'll amend that then and just stick to 6'5.5" afternoon. Even if Pippen was 6'7" flat, then Barkley would still look about 6'5.5", but he was reportedly measured at 6'7.5" and looks it to me. He consistently looked it with Jordan: Click Here who incidentally, looks noticeably shorter than Barkley did with Pippen. Malone has never been proven at 6'8". In fact, Malone looks at least as tall as 6'8.75" Shawn Kemp: Click Here Barkley does surprisingly look shorter than Kobe in that photo, but one photo from the side view where we can't see their feet isn't proof Barkley is shorter and Kobe is far from settled at 6'4.75". I think he's more likely your height, Christian, or at least 6'5.25". Just look at Kobe with Obama or Magic Johnson at Michael Jackson's memorial service. Besides, I'm not convinced Barkley is that much shorter than Malone, who I believe may be closer to 6'9" than 6'8": Click Here Malone certainly looks more than an inch taller than 6'7.5" Magic here: Click Here Even at 6'3.5", Steven Seagal has Barkley looking over 6'5" rather than under and I agree we can't put too much into a single photo, much less once that isn't full, but it's Seagal who typically wears big boots. My photos with 6'5.5" Dr. J and Larry Johnson do show compelling evidence Barkley is around that height himself in addition to being taller in a couple of photos weith 6'5" Michael Jordan, one of which(The Dream Team photo) is a full shot. Even if Kenny Smith is 6'1", he only comes up to about Barkley's eyes at best in bare feet making Barkley at least 6'5.5" there.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 26/Apr/17
@Rising Force

I know not all people shrink throughout the day at the same rate, but a 6'5.5" guy in the afternoon possibly can't drop down to 6'4.75"-6'5" at night, especially if you're saying that's his usual low. That's too extreme. I'm 6'5 3/8" in the afternoon and usually creep down to 6'5.25" at night, but even in my most extreme low I dropped to 6'5" on the dot (195.5cm)
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
Again Kobe Bryant is taller than he is and he is o Lu confirmed that he is 6'4.75 (Kobe has)

Click Here
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
@Rising force: look at what you just wrote. You won't rule out he measures 6'4.75-6'5 at night. If he measured that it's his true height. Rob said himself and I can attest to it being it. If you are at a point after 5-7 hours then you don't lose anymore significant height. Maybe 1:8". An extreme low maybe another 1/4. His extreme is far less than that. So if he gets to 6'4.75 at night then maybe 6'5 would be his true height. Now it seems as if you are making excuses to keep him at 6'5.5. Just like the ones you made Dan Majere and Danny Ainge "downplaying" his height as well along with him when he's shorter than Majerle by an inch and taller than Ainte by half.
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
Rising force; I understand your logic about not having to downgrade a bunch of celebs but if you see him with Lennox Lewis he's 6'4.5. That's what Lewis is and they're the same height. Seagal is under 6'4. Also when you compare these pics you aren't looking at footwear in any of them. Lastly pippen is not 6'7.5. He's 6'7" tops. 6'7.5 would make him about as tall as Karl Malone who's around 6'8" maybe 6'7.75 like boozer is. He has pippen by an inch. I have to disagree because as I mentioned he is listed on NBA roster at 6'6. If he were 6'5.5 barefoot he'd be 6'7" on the roster that's just common sense being a power forward. In addition look at my post a few months back with all of the limks. It would take four or five complete morons to say he's only about 6'4.5" if these guys are 6'4" range themselves. If he were 6'5.5 then they'd be able to tell the difference. So no disrespect but I am not upgrading him just to accommodate the other celebs here not to downgrade them. He's 6'4 5/8 like measured at the olympics. That's from another reliable source two people I personally know that met him that said yes 6'4/6'5
Markus said on 26/Apr/17
Editor Rob: 6ft 5 is arguable...he has said he's measured in 6ft 4.75-5 zone, so I've no reason to disbelieve him.
Maybe if he wakes up almost 6ft 6, some days he's going to look quite tall.

Do not you consider that the figures of the celebrities can be wrong? Hogan's actual "6-4,5" is obviously just as wrong
as Cena's "6". In the case of Barkley, everything speaks for the fact that he is wrong to his own fault in terms of his past
(peak) height.
RisingForce said on 25/Apr/17
I think you're right, Dmeyer, you have to downgrade an awful lot of people to make this fit. I just can't see any less than 6'5.5". Canson, he did post a pic of Barkley and Pippen, now here's a pretty ideal one: Click Here 2" tops making Barkley at least 6'5.5" Actually, more like 1.5" apparently: Click Here Barkley at 6'4.5" would make him 3" shorter and there's no way. In fact, Barkley is much closer to Pippen's height. Magic Johnson also has 2" tops on Barkley as my pics of the 2 together plus the comparison to Merriman show. Here he is with Seagal: Click Here Keep in mind Seagal has better posture and a hat/bandana plus Seagal almost always wears cowboy boots. Canson, what stood out to me in your video is that Barkley again looks not much shorter than Pippen, that same 6'5.5"-6'6" range. Some random people on an Internet forum isn't compelling evidence. Barkley downplays his height most of the time just like when Kobe referred to himself as 6'4" and 6'5" in shoes, which would make Obama under 6 feet, but the 6'5.5" is probably honest even though I think he looks the full 6'6" a lot. Even if Rock is 6'2" flat, Barkley looks 6'5"-6'5.25", but Rock is listed here at 6'2.5" making Barkley at least 6'5.5" there. As for footwear, 2 cm difference is ridiculous. If there's any difference at all, it will have to be proven by finding the shoe models. We also have multiple photos of Barkley taller than Michael Jordan and Barkley measures up better to Pippen. I will say there's a possibility because of how tall Barkley is, he shrinks a lot in a day. I won't rule out that he might have actually measured 6'4.75"-6'5" range at his low at night, wake up over 6'6" and be about 6'5.5" midday or lunchtime. But nothing under 6'5.5" adds up with the mugshot. Well, at least we have quite a debate on this page! But I'll just add Dennis Rodman as another who downplays his height, for probably the same reason(undersized power forward and rebounder) Rodman is definitely taller than a flat 6'6" as Rob agrees by listing him 6'6.5", but I'd give Rodman 6'7". Comfortably taller than Jordan and barely shorter than Pippen.
Canson said on 25/Apr/17
@Christian: 6-7 cm would make Rock 188 (like my friend who met him said) Barkley 194-195 like he also said when he met Barkley
Canson said on 25/Apr/17
@Markus: Malone isn't only 2" over Barkley. It's not less than 3". Watch when they are right in front of each other when they walk on stage. Keep in mind that when it's 3" in appearance that could be 3.25 as well. Also keep in mind Malone may not be complete 6'8. He looks the same size with boozer. But he could also be a full 6'8". I don't deny Barkley wakes up 6'5 1/4-3/8. He may lose an inch and even if he doesn't he could lose 3/4" from there like normal and put him 6'4 1/2-5/8

Click Here
Canson said on 25/Apr/17
@Sportsworld: tough to tell. With magic Merriman looks 6'3 imho but with Barkley 6'2" maybe. I agree Barkley is 6'4.5. His teammates who stand next to him all say it as have fans on the internet who have met him. A 196-197 Barkley would make him taller than Kobe when Kobe is taller than him in reality based on their pic at the Espy
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
@Christian: I agree and even without a footwear difference being recognized he doesn't look more than 2.5" taller maybe 3". A friend of mine has met both and he described rock as 6'2" and Barkley as about as tall as I am but we're talking a .17" (1/6") diff so maybe he's a full 6'4.5 evening or closer to it than I am. Rising force is right he did claim 6'5.5 but if we look at many sites where one a 6'6" guy met him and said he's 1-2" shorter than him and others where 6'4" guys even 6'3" guys met him like here they say 1-2" taller than they are too. Barkley 6'5.5 is in shoes maybe in a good pair of Jordan's or something he's a full 6'5.75-6'6" but fact is he measured 6'4 5/8" with FIBA as well. The rock is above Barkleys eyebrow by over an inch
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
@Markus: Barkley is a full 5cm or 6 shorter than pippen is. Look at the pics of them in Houston together

RisingForce said on 24/Apr/17
I actually think you're spot on seeing an 8 cm difference making Barkley 6'5.5"-6'5.75" if Rock is 6'2.5", but if there is a footwear difference, there's no way it's 2 cm. Keep in mind, Barkley also has loose posture while Rock is stretched up. In fact, I'd bet that makes a bigger difference than any footwear difference there. Based on that photo, I'd bet on no less than a 8 cm difference between them barefoot. Markus shows Barkley at no less than 6'5.5" in his post as well such as the Dream Team photo where Barkley actually does look about an inch taller than Michael Jordan.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 23/Apr/17
Nevermind, I've found their footwear now. You can see that Barkley has thicker shoes than Rock. Click Here He has 8cm on him, but if both were barefoot, it'll be a 6-7cm difference maybe.
RisingForce said on 23/Apr/17
Barkley has sneakers with Rock. Normal 1"-1.25" range, the shoes are visible in the pics I posted and if you scroll down in the last post. Canson, I never said anything about whether I believe Jackson's claim, in fact I don't believe Jackson since he claimed 6'3", which is ridiculous. He's lucky if he hit 6'2" at best. And there's no comparison between Barkley's claim and Jackson's. Barkley is at a height where many men downplay it, especially since it's part of his legend and makes his career all the more impressive. I do believe one of Barkley's claims, which was when he said 6'5.5". Why do you disregard that one? But ultimately claims should always be taken with a grain of salt. Most people lie or exaggerate in one way or another, otherwise there would be no need for this site. In general, I don't remember the commercials, but I know the difference in my photo is no less than 4" and Jackson has the advantage.
Markus said on 23/Apr/17
Correction: I meant that Barkley is 1,5 "shorter than Pippen not taller.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 22/Apr/17
@RisingForce @Canson @S.J.H

All 3 of you have yet to mention anything about footwear though. Barkley could've worn thick boots while Rock wore thin sneakers for all we know. This is why I usually don't bother guessing height differences in pics without visible footwear that much (unless if the footwear difference is noted, as Rob does in his meet-and-greet pics with celebrities)
Canson said on 22/Apr/17
@Rising Force: so you take Samuel L Jackson's claim but not Barkley's is what you're saying? There's not 4" there if you look at all of the capital one commercials it's 3"
Markus said on 22/Apr/17
Barkley was 1 - 1,25" taller than almost 6-5 Jordan: Click Here
About: 1,5" taller than 6-7,5 Pippen (Pippen`s hair is about 0,5"): Click Here

Samuel L. Jackson was what? 6'1.5"-6'2" in 2001? Well, he's close to the camera and still a good 4" shorter than Barkley: Click Here Take off the hat, move him a step back and his head probably doesn't reach above Barkley's eyes.
RisingForce said on 21/Apr/17
It was reported and as "more like". I don't count that as proof. Wasn't it reported a few years back that Jordan measured 6'4.5" coming into the league too? You don't believe Wade's official 6'3.75" measurement(and you may be right) so why believe a sup posed measurement for Barkley with just one source? I agree with S.J.H. Rock is only 6'1" range if Barkley is under 6'5". Rock even has much better posture. I haven't seen Space Jam in 20 years, but in that photo, Barkley's point makes him the same height. Just like I posted 2 photos showing Barkley at least as tall as 6'5.5" Dr. J.
Canson said on 20/Apr/17
@SJH: looks less than that to me. Rock's head is an inch or more over barkleys eyebrows. Barkley is nearer the camera as well. I'd say maybe 2.5-3 and that could be camera angle. I'd have the Rock as strong 6'2" 6'2-6'2.25 and Barkley 6'4 1/2-5/8
S.J.H said on 20/Apr/17
@Canson

If you measure from rock top head atually reach barkley top area of eye brown it is really not less than 9cm and only their eye level look 3' tops because of barkley tilt down eye level. The optimistic side is to believe barkley is 6'6 then rock could be 6'2.5 as rob listed and pessimistic is barkley is 6'4.75 as listed and rock is not gota be higher than 6'1.25
Canson said on 16/Apr/17

Everyone saying Barkley dwarfs the Rock? That's 5-6cm tops a 6'2-6'2.25 rock makes Barkley 6'4.5
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@Rising Force: no proof?? It's right above in the quote that rob prefaced this page with and says he was measured 6'4 5/8. That's straight from Sports Illustrated. Also some food for thought. The Olympic measurements are not a prospective player trying to get drafted or make a team. So less incentive to lie up about someone's height than the pre draft measurements.
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@Rising Force: he is not as tall as LJ is. Look at the Space Jame scenes. LJ edges both out. And with the pic you provided it isn't any good. If LJ were his listed 6'7" he'd look the same height as Barkley in that pic. I've never met Barkley but I did mention further back a friend of mine at 6'3 and another 6'2" (this guy was my AAU coach and is associated with the NBA as a scout) have and said he's 6'4/6'5. However I have met LJ he's 6'5" and change but not 197cm. He's 196 range and was at absolute most an inch taller than I am. He's about identical in height with Christian at 6'5.25 maybe a mm or two taller than that. LJ has Jordan by 2cm and Barkley about the same.

RisingForce said on 15/Apr/17
There's no proof the Olympic measurement even took place. Standing I'm front of height chart will add some height, but not THAT much: Click Here 6'6.5"-6'7" in shoes would add up with 6'5.5" barefoot. Barkley edges out 6'5" Jordan here in the best pic of the 2 together: Click Here Draw a line at the top of Jordan's head. You'll see Barkley's pointy head is higher. Not much higher, but higher whether it's 1/4" or 1/2". Identical in height to 6'5.5" Larry Johnson as well: Click Here

@Butt Checker: why wouldn't Barkley stand straight? That makes no sense. And if he weren't they would've called him on it when they measured him. That's FIBA (just as official as the NBA) and even more accurately listed because the players aren't being "evaluated" for the draft. If that's what he measured 6'4 5/8 that's what he is and don't know what time of day that was either.

@Christian agreed he looks 6'4.5 normally (194/195)

above all he looks at least 196-197cms with all celebrities at your listings or all should be downgraded by a half inch

Please show us a clip/photo of Barkley slouching when he was measured then. You've got to have some form of evidence before accusing someone of doing something. And he looks 194-195cm to me.

@orpheus: don't know as I've never tried. I know people measuring someone based on an object like doorway is not practical if they're standing far away from it tho. Like if a 6'5" guy were facing or in front of a doorway not right under it they may look exactly at the door frame from a distance but when under it will be 3" under most in bare feet
orpheus said on 13/Apr/17
Canson how accurate would you say measuring yourself with a tape measurer next to you while putting your finger or coin on top of your head is then removing. I get 6'3 every time.

When I have my finger perpendicular to 6'0 then walk up to it hits the middle of my head.

Canson, there's no photographic or video proof offered in that thread. Someone else's judgement isn't that compelling to me, I can find just as many players who have said Durant is 7 feet, Garnett is 7'1", T-Mac is 6'10" etc. Doesn't mean I believe any to be true. I'm not sure how you see only 2.5" with Rock either. Barkley's posture is worse, but if you drew a line from Rock's head, it's not going to reach any higher than Barkley's eyebrows, which would be 3.5" even assuming Barkley has a normal sized head. That pic on Rock's page had people thinking he was way shorter.

Rising force: next to the Rock Barkley looks 2-3" taller more like 2.5" meaning if the Rock is 6'2-6'2.5 puts Barkley 6'4.5-6'5. Tops
Canson said on 7/Apr/17
@Rising Force: fair enough. If that's how you believe I ram respect your opinion. But I use logic and also people who have played with Barkley who have no reason to lie as well. They do embellish the barefoot heights in pre drafts as well. Look at Wade next to Russell Westbrook. Virtually no difference. and Jordan has the same difference with Wade as Barkley does.
RisingForce said on 7/Apr/17
The 6'3.75" for Wade comes from the pre-draft camp, the 6'4 5/8" for Barkley was only reported in one SI article. Maybe it was early morning or an error, but it's at least more reliable than the supposed Barkley measurement. If that figure is true then Rock is looking closet to a flat 6 feet in comparison: Click Here And he had a good 4" on 6'1.5" minimum Hugh Jackman who is closer to the camera and standing perfectly: Click Here You get a sense of how big Barkley is on the stage as well: Click Here I respect that you trust the judgment of the 2 people you know and I may not be able to convince you, but understand, I have to go by what I see myself.
Editor Rob: I would disagree about Jackman...he's maybe an inch or so closer, but I would say is dropping a little bit because he has right knee bent, which is usually an adjustment when you drop height on the opposite hip.
Canson said on 7/Apr/17
@Rising Force: I don't believe Wade is 6'3.75. problem is if he claimed it or someone else claims a height we believe it and automatically inflate Barkley based on it. Considering I know two people who have met Barkley one is a scout who worked in the league and a friend who is a marketing exec that has met many celebs and athletes they both say he is my height or thereabouts. One of which is 6'2" the other 6'3. The latter it'd be easy for him to tell since I'm less than 4cm taller than him at 193.9. Barkley measured 6'4 5/8 at the olympics which makes more sense than 6'5.5. That I could believe
RisingForce said on 6/Apr/17
The same reason Willis Reed would insist Kareem was 7'5". As I said, Barkley himself downplays his height, not uncommon for tall guys, particularly when it's tied to Barkley's legacy. As for Kobe, I'm undecided. He could look that 6'4.75" figure with Wade during the '07 all-star weekend, but then he looks a lot taller other times like with Obama, Michael Phelps and Magic Johnson. Maybe 6'4.75" is his absolute low, but he typically looks easy 6'5.5". Barkley does look much shorter than usual there, but typically looks taller so I'd like to see more pics of the 2 as low side angles aren't the best, but while we're at it, Arnold was still a legit 6 feet when this photo was taken 10 years ago: Click Here Barkley dwarfs Arnold more than 6'4.75" listed Joe Manganiello did 7 years later, by which time Arnold had dropped to the 5'11" range. Good side by side with 6'7.5" Scottie Pippen and Barkley isn't much shorter: Click Here and barely shorter than 6'7" Krist Novoselic: Click Here A slouching Barkley is still dwarfing Dave Grohl who is around 6 feet. If you remember back when Barkley had those commercials with 6'3.75" Dwayne Wade, he was a good 2" taller than Wade. I just think the whole 6'4" range thing is trying to force the pieces to fit. The amount of visual evidence that places Barkley at under 6'5" pales in comparison to the mountain of visual evidence that puts him 6'5.5" minimum.

Canson said on 5/Apr/17
@Rising Force: if you look at Barkley next to Malone he looks 6'4 range. they have all said he's under 6'5". That makes no sense when Danny ainge himself said during a press conference when Barkley was asked about his height and Barkley claimed 6'6" that Barkley was at most a half inch taller than he was and Barkley didn't challenge it Ainge is 6'4" barefoot
RisingForce said on 4/Apr/17
Simply hyperbole, Canson. How many coaches and players have you heard say things like Kevin Durant is 6'11"-7 feet, Garnett at least 7'1", Kareem 7'4" or 5", T-Mac 6'10". People like to exaggerate for effect. Barkley sure looks at least as tall as Dr. J. Like I said, hyperbole isn't convincing when the vast majority of visual evidence points to Barkley being AT LEAST 6'5.5".
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
@Rising Force: but if that's the case why would Dan Majerle Danny Ainge Joe Klein Moses Malone and Mo Cheeks along with other teammates and coaches and fans who have met him some of which are close in height with him say he's 6'4 range? If he isn't. He isn't as tall as Dr J who also said the same thing. Dr J is 6'5.5 as is Dan majerle who himself said Barkley is shorter than him. Majerle claims 6'6" but is not he's at most 6'5 1/2
RisingForce said on 1/Apr/17
Let's say Kenny is 6'1", look at how his head barely comes up to Barkley's eyes, if it even reaches it and they're in bare feet so no shoe advantage. Eye to head is 4.5" even on a normal size man. Barkley wasn't claiming to be taller than he was like most men when he said he was 6'5.5". He's claiming he's shorter than he really is when he claims to be under 6'5" because it goes with the image of the undersized power forward and dominant rebounder. He looks identical in height to Dr. J who was only in his 40's here and 6'5.5" minimum: Click Here Now look at this pic from '86 and tell me Dr. J is an inch taller: Click Here Barkley is a bit closer to the camera, but it certainly doesn't seem like he'd be shorter and look at how Barkley dwarfs Mo Cheeks who is probably not that far from Kenny's height. I'm going to have to see a lot more than anecdotes to believe Barkley could be even a mm below 6'5.5".
Canson said on 31/Mar/17
@Christian: he looks shorter than Kobe here. But I don't think it's as pronounced as it looks. I think Kobe is 6'4.75 and Barkley 6'4.5 the 5/8 may have come earlier a bit or that could even be his lowest. I can't see him as 6'4.75 tho as he'd be looking a full 6'5" at that rate. I believe Jordan is closer in height with me maybe only 1/6 taller 6'4.5 at his lowest

I can't see Barkley being shorter than Kobe. After seeing more pics/footage of Barkley compared to other people, It's safe to say he isn't the full 6ft5 like I used to believe he was. But he's probably 6'4 5/8"-3/4" at his lowest, same as Kobe. The reason why many coaches, players, etc. said Barkley was 6ft4, was because he has a bigger heavier body frame compared to most players, and that can give the impression that he's shorter than he actually is.
Canson said on 29/Mar/17
@SJH: I believe everything you said. Barkley getting 6'5 or over is him in a higher shoe or because a shorter guy is claiming a higher height than their normal barefoot (afternoon) or rounding. His own teammates and coaches have said he's 6'4 range which carries more weight to me. Carmelo was definitely 6'6" though at minimum. Maybe that's his lowest
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
@Borats: lol he has!
S.J.H said on 28/Mar/17
There is always different story to hear from others. Some say they met barkley he was 6'5 and over and some say barkley is only 6'4 and some say 6'4.5 and a few people prove picture and say barkley is 6'4.5 like i read up from some blog a 6'5 guy claim he meet carmelo anthony eye to eye and say he was at most fraction taller than him. Not my opinion.
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
@Ebrahim Kenny is 6'1 prob. He's said on many occasions that Charles is 6'4". Most recent being all star game when he said Charles isn't a big he's only 6'4". This was during the skills challenge. There's about 3" between them. The camera angle isn't good and he looks larger due to weight
Ebrahim said on 27/Mar/17
@RisingForce it is interesting that you brought up Kenny Smith, which I don't buy his 6'3" 6'4" height, he seems more than 2" shorter than MJ, Barkley, Kobe and VC: the weak 6'5s basically.

Rob, I think Kenny should have his own thread.

@Ice: yes I'm 3'11" and you're 3'11.25. I'd take toying around in a light hearted way if you didn't do it as a way to try to insult some one because they don't agree with you which is what you did

@Ice: you are the dumbest most inept poster here. You start a war because you disagree with what I said and now you are throwing fake untrue insults out there to take shots at me just because you have nothing else to come back with. Please remember that you started this war so if you want to start something the please be prepared to finish it. You obviously can't finish anything which is why you probably will be alone for the rest of your life

If there's a good amount of convincing photo or video evidence presented that Barkley is under 6'5.5" then I'll change my guess, but until then I'll stand by my guess. Even if Kenny Smith is a full 2" under his listed 6'3", Barkley still looks to comfortably clear 6'5": Click Here

@Free: problem is it's pictures. I'm not sure about Merrimack honestly. You met him so you may be right. Barkley is 6'4.5 tops. He claims that 6'4.75 he's not. He measured 6'4 5/8 at the olympics and he's maybe 1.5" taller than a 6'3" friend who met him and he said he didn't look noticeably taller than I am (6'4.33). Same friend met Rock and he is 6'2". Maybe poor posture in the pic not sure. Barkley looks 2.5" taller than rock in their pic
Free said on 22/Mar/17
Interesting how Merriman is a smidge taller than Rock, and then Barkley looks about his listed height with him.

Adds up to a 6-1.5 Rock with Merriman and Barkley
Free said on 22/Mar/17
Merriman looks 6-1 with Magic Canson.

Barkley looks his listed height here with Merriman. Almost 3 inches

Canson said on 21/Mar/17
@Rising Force: here Dan Majerle says he's maybe 6'5 probably 6'4. Same thing Joe Klein and Danny ainge Michael Jordan I'm losing count now. He isn't a flat 6'4" but he isn't even 6'5. More like the 6'4 5/8 he measured at the olympics or 6'4.5. His teammates coaches along with people who have played against him not to mention see at he bottom people who have met him in person that I posted a few months back say he's 6'4 range. They have no reason to short change him if he's really taller. It just shows you that pics are often no good comparing. Magic is more than 1-2 inches taller it's about 2.5-3" I'd say closer to 3".

Editor Rob: the link you had included didn't work. With some long links, it's better to shorten with bit.ly or tinyurl
Canson said on 20/Mar/17
@Berta: rock is specifically that 6'2. My friend has met him and I saw a pic with him where it actually looked like 2". My buddy is honest tho about his height (solid 6'3) comes down to 190.4 almost every day and admitted he's about an inch taller than Rock. I guess 6'2.25 is arguable and possible if poor posture but not higher than that. Barkley is around 6'4.5 not 6'4.75. His teammates have all said along with people who have met him that he's closer to 6'4 than 6'5. A legit 195cm guy will be guessed 6'5" not 6'4. Barkley gives the impression in pics with his build and if the camera favors him but in reality he and Jordan are both shorter than Kobe is by a hair and are both 6'4.4-.6 range
Canson said on 20/Mar/17
@Ice: then prove it. You must know me or something and that's very odd because I have never been to your country in my life and doubt you are mature enough to have been left alone unsupervised by your parents to travel or even with them. You are a childish ass kid and still not even legal to drink. You probably are a virgin still too because no girl wants to get with a guy who probably isn't even tall enough to look her in the eyes. So now you are making these childish comments all because you were unable to "properly" insult me below. And not to mention you are insecure about your height and yes you lie about it. I'd be more inclined to believe you probably aren't even 6'0" which is why you are an insecure ass like you are.
RisingForce said on 20/Mar/17
It's 2 pictures with Magic and there's no way Barkley is 3 inches shorter. Random estimates from people I don't know and can't verify if they're being accurate is not nearly as convincing to me as all of the comparisons where he looks around 6'6". Look at him with Rock when he was promoting Pain and Gain. He wasn't less than 6'2.5" at that time, maybe still 190 cm and Barkley truly dwarfed him. Or even the mugshot. It adds height sure, but that's why Barkley looked 6'8" in shoes from one angle and 6'7" from another. He's not less than 6'6.5" in shoes. I suspect Kobe might be a similar 6'5.5", but at least he CAN look 6'4.75" next to some other NBA players such as Shaq and Dwyane Wade. With Barkley, he looks 6'5.5"-6'6" in comparisons 90+% of the time.

No Ice it isn't too much to understand. But don't sit here and make your stupid comments to others about being insecure when you were the one saying you were 6'2" and felt short or 6'2.5 and felt short etc. that takes your credibility away right there and then you to go attack others because their beliefs are different than yours? Usually by the way, it's people who inflate their height and others who are insecure with their own height like SJH said.
Ice said on 13/Mar/17
@Canson Well guess what , My claims have changed because Im below 21 and I have and still am growing . People Can physically grow in height you know , but I guess thats too much for you to understand .
Canson said on 13/Mar/17
@Rising Force: I'd say we have to downgrade. My friend is a solid 6'3" and Barkley according to him just like the others here on the internet that have met him says he is around my height 6'4 3/8. I'd give him a full 6'4.5 at his lowest. His teammates have largely said the same thing and the pic with Magic is no good. Magic is in reality about 3" taller than Barkley (worst 2.5").
RisingForce said on 11/Mar/17
If you take Barkley's word then you have to downgrade almost everyone else accordingly. Magic Johnson is listed here at a plausible 6'7.5", but he's nowhere near 3" taller than Barkley: Click Here Click Here He might have actually told the truth with the 6'5.5" or he might ironically be one of the few NBA players as tall as listed. He dwarfed a 6'2.5" Rock by a good 3 or 4 inches. His mugshot showing him at least 6'7" in shoes probably wasn't too far off. I'd love to be able to take his specific 6'4.75" and close the book on him, but I can't. He's certainly much more than just an inch taller than Dwyane Wade as well.

Canson said on 8/Mar/17
@S.J.H: thanks!!! And I can relate to what you said about your height because I have two friends who are around your height and a third about 1.5" lower all three are taller than me. One is only a hair taller than Christian 196.4cm at his lowest. He doesn't really complain other than maybe airplanes but the other two do. One is 198.3 at his lowest the other actually taller than you at 6'7-6'7 1/8 usually (although he saw 6'6 7/8 once that isn't normal for him I don't think as he was over 6'7" at 11pm last time). The latter wakes up I think 6'7 7/8 maybe 6'8. But those two really hate it. They are both in flats and I see the doorway issues. However the 6'7" one nowadays doesn't as much as the 6'6" guy it seems mainly because he also has put himself into some prime shape and is well proportioned and built (he's impressive) and even the 6'6" guy is too. But both have said to the effect of they wish they were my height and one said he wishes he was 6'2 once. I think 6'2" is a good height but having been 6'4, I think I'd go with 6'4 only because I'm used to it. I will say tho on the opposite end and it irritates me too that I have a former teammate from college that is friends with one of the others as we were all roommates and he claims 6'7 to this day (one of his listed heights in college). He's really 6'5.5-.75 and is an inch and almost a half shorter than my 6'7" friend. When he hung out with us and said 6'7/6'8" to someone we all kinda looked at him like what the hell lol? Because he basically put us all in a situation to have to lie which none of us did we all said he was and outed him before he said he's 6'7" in shoes which he really isn't. Funniest part is the real 6'7" guy who is the eldest of all of us by a couple years said "you really do not want to be 6'8" lol? That implies your 6'9 in shoes. He even said look none of taller guys claim shoes. What's the point?
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
@Christian: Thanks!! You're close enough (6'4.33) at my lowest if no gym. I'm front loaded on my height loss. You look like you lose 1/8" more than me (7/8" vs 3/4"). Ice is just being childish because he thinks I downgraded Barkley (when his teammates and coaches and other fans have all said he's the height I put him at) and Ice is insecure about his own height. We see how his has changed from 6'1" to 6'2 to 6'2.5 to 6'3" and he always says he feels short and wishes he were taller. He even said he wants to be 6'5 or 6'6 before.
S.J.H said on 8/Mar/17
@Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25)

Very true. But Ice was in his anger because he mad at canson for height degrade for some celebrities which is logical. We can understand. Theres two type of person insecure with their height, which is commonly people who don't reach their desire height and they inflate their height higher on any site of social network and the other insecure person which is someone being too tall and always get ask how tall he is. I'm on the tall side an always felt insecure being too tall at 6'7 before i really know a few taller guys than i in person through this few years i have always keep fooling others that i'm only 6'4-6'5 because 6'7 sounds monster to them while they're average height pupil. Now i'm claiming it i'm 6'6.9 at my lowest so i'm 6'7 and i believe beta, canson, boobyh3342, Christian you all were very tall fellows 6'4-6'5 range that don't make me alone

You have no proof of that. He has said he's 6ft4.38 enough times already. Why would he lie about his height? (he may be 6ft4.13 or 6ft4.25 at his lowest, since he says he's 6ft4.38 around afternoon)
Canson said on 7/Mar/17

Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@S.J.H: you're one of the smartest people here. I don't pay attention to half of these people saying he's 6'5-6'6 honestly. Face it the whole world goes by shoe heights which is why Conan Obrien is listed 6'4". He is clearly 1.5" shorter than Kobe and 1-1.5 shorter than Barkley. At most Conan is 6'3.25 prime. Funny how every 6'4" guy on his show is taller than he is and like one guy on his page said it he always goes out of his way to ask people around his height or taller how tall they are and hopes that they will say 6'5" I've seen it with Haysbert Mangianello Neeson and Selleck and lithos edged him out. He always says to the legit 6'4s "you must be 6'4/6'5 and to the stronger 6'4s like Liam 6'5. He does that to make himself believe he is 6'4". Conan while I love his show and respect him as an entertainer always makes reference to how tall he is and embellishes it. He even went as far in a large 7series BMW to make it sound as if the car was too small for him when I have an Audi A6 and it's more than roomy for me (smaller than a 5 series)

Canson said on 2/Mar/17
@Ice: do me a favor. Go through the list of 6'5 and 6'60 guys on this site. I haven't commented on all of them. And I surely haven't downgraded them all since I haven't commented on them. Lol this coming from the most insecure loser troll on this site. You say at "6'2, then 6'2.5, in a few months it'll be 6'3" that you feel short. Nobody takes anything you say seriously and everyone knows you lie about your height which is why you inflate these guys here. So until you can point out where I have downgraded every 6'5 or 6'6" on this site and I want you to go list by list and not include any 6'4.75 or 6'4.5 guys I want 6'5 and over. Don't make another comment until you do.

And by the way Charles Barkley was 6'4 5/8 at the olympics which is what I said so I agree he's actually a weak 6'5 (worst case is he drops to 6'4.5) like I said. Kobe is 6'4.75 as listed and Jordan as pat Riley said is 6'4.5. But You want these guys to be taller to keep believing you are taller than you are (using your shoe height).
S.J.H said on 2/Mar/17
Ice said on 27/Feb/17

Canson did not downgrade everyone's height if going with specific logic espcially charles barkley height. Barkley is 6'4.75-6'5 he claim possibly measure in the morning like most people and still is and kobe bryant too, so if he is a strong 6'4.5 logically if he didn't lost any height by afternoon which is then no way. If he was 6'5-6'6 therefore rob would have change his listing long ago. I can tell you a fact because those celebrities singer,actor etc are mostly claiming an inch higher and fool others include rob there is why michael jordan, kobe bryant and barkley three of them tend to look in the 6'6-6'5.5 range but that was just the height with shoes they look not barefeet height. I can assurd 6'5 claim joe manganiello will look a flat 6'4 with them which i'm not surprise

@Sanky: Kobe doesn't claim "barely" 6'4. He said that in response to people assuming he's 6'7" when he said it to the kid. His wife measured him 6'4 3/4. That's what he actually is. He's not as tall as Rick fox who's 196-197cm and practically the same as Kareem Rush who is 6'4 3/4 or 6'4 1/2. I'd say rush is the latter and Kobe is 1/4" taller. Barkley at 6'5.5 is impossible as he's shorter than Dan majerle and majerle and ainge have along with other NBa players said Barkley isn't even 6'5. 6'4.5. Like Rob said and Johnson the mugshot pic is no good. Depending on footwear Barkley may be 6'6" in shoes and stand 6'4.5 or 5/8 like he was measured is as high as I'd give him to be getting people saying he's 6'4 otherwise they'd peg him as 6'5 anything inside 1/4" isn't really noticeable enough to anyone to distinguish a difference from 6'5
Johnson said on 25/Feb/17

i agree it. I've see a legit 6'6 guy took a picture with barkley, barkley does look 1.5" under 6'6 so 6'4.5 legit and he can only be 6'5 in the morning and conan o'brien is the same height as you a real 6'3 :)
Arby said on 21/Feb/17
No he isn't 6'7. Or even 6'6" or 6'5.. I stood right next to him at Phoenix sky harbor international airport many times as I work there. I'm 6'3-6'3.25 and he's only about an inch to inch and a half taller than me. 6'4 1/2 is what I'd give him. That's his height and his true one

@S.J.H: not quite sure. I'm 6'4 3/8 (solid 194cm) by 5-6 hrs on my feet.

---------

I don't mean to change the subject, but if you're 6ft4.38 after 5-6 hours, doesn't that mean you're shorter after 16-18 hours on your feet (right before bed)? It's normal to lose 1/8th-1/4th inches from noon to nighttime, so shouldn't it put you at 6ft4.13-6ft4.25 at your lowest? (I'm 6ft5.38-6ft5.5 at noon, and drop to 6ft5.25 right before bed.)
S.J.H said on 4/Feb/17
@Canson

I also think MJ apear more likely to be 6'4.5 than kobe and barkley. I always felt kobe would be nearer to 195cm than other two. More chance barkley and MJ had loss a few mm by now and kobe might holding fraction over 194cm through a mid day although i think his 6'4 only claim might just be a little downplay easier to say 6'4 rather claiming than 6'4.5-6'4.75 , i would've say on a good day kobe is more like 6'5 than MJ and Barkley can look. To be more specific i don't think barkley and MJ could be taller than you visibly but kobe might be small fraction taller than you.
Canson said on 3/Feb/17
@S.J.H: not quite sure. I'm 6'4 3/8 (solid 194cm) by 5-6 hrs on my feet. I honestly don't know if Barkley is as low as I am. He measured 6'4 5/8 in the olympics so not sure time of day. I do know that looking at Kobe MJ and Charles Kobe appears the tallest and is likely 195cm at his lowest or 194.9. MJ appears 6'4.5 and is according to enough people who have described him 6'4/6'5. Barkley measured 6'4 5/8 and is often described maybe 6'5 so my guess is he's around MJs height
S.J.H said on 3/Feb/17
@Canson

Atually if charles barkley was measure 6-4 5/8 he is few mm shine of 195cm and furthermore till noon/night he should be just your height strong 194cm guy just like kobe himself claim he is only 6'4 and other time he have say 194cm only myth is that how kobe wife measure him 6'4-3/4 whether in the morning, afternoon or evening that make a 0.3" difference from his lowest claim and i would say a real 6'4 guy can give impression of 6'5 easily especially they're not overweight and quite slim in body build and kobe bryant give more impression like 6'5.5 so he is 194cm. Just reference for others how 2 real 6'4 guy frame look below

Editor Rob: seems an honest estimate from Dan.
Canson said on 2/Feb/17
This is why using pictures is not always the best way to judge. Barkley according to every teammate he's had (including Dan Majerle below) is "maybe 6'5" probably 6'4" range albeit 194-195 range (6'4 1/2 or 5/8) but doubt 3/4 as he would look a full 6'5 at that point and don't think Majerle would say he's 6'4 if he's 3/4. This also goes for Jordan as he's also commonly described 6'4/6'5. Again 195 cm would get him 6'5". The only one out of the 3 who has a legit shot at 195cm at their lowest Berta is Kobe. You likely are at least 2cm taller than Jordan and Barkley if you're 196.5 and 2.5 over Kobe

To be honest on the conan o'brien show Joe look about 2cm taller than conan but we have see barkley and kobe few times look easily 4cm taller than conan on the show, unless barkley and kobe have more footwear than joe apearence then i think joe is good 6'4.5 if not both 195er might just making joe a legit 6'4 guy

taller than kobe and the same height ore little taller than jordan and made dwayne johnson look about 6 feet- he must be 196-97. if he is 197 then dwayne jhonson is around 6 foot 2
Canson said on 18/Jan/17
@S.J.H: I can see Joe as the same height as the other two at 194/195. If anything I see Kobe as the most clean or closest to 195. Judging from people I know who have met MJ and Barkley both 6'4.5ish. Don't know anyone who has met Joe but have heard someone that met Kobe that he's 6'5ish so don't see him much below a full 195 and Kobe has described Jordan as not being 6'6@ before. I'm thinking Kobe got his 6'4.5 basing himself off Jordan since they're close in height but Kobe is taller than him by a hair most likely

@S.J.H: I can see Joe as the same height as the other two at 194/195. If anything I see Kobe as the most clean or closest to 195

@Canson

I agree it. Kobe was the tallest and barkley same height as michael jordan while joe manganiello fall behind 3 of them
Canson said on 15/Jan/17
Wouldn't surprise me if Kobe were the tallest of the 3. Of course we aren't talking by much as all 3 are over 6'5 out of bed
184guy said on 12/Jan/17
Rob,why you keep listing Joe Manganiello at 6'5 when you have Kobe and Charles at 6'4.75 ?
I definitely agree that Joe is 6'5 for a chunck of day but Kobe and Barkley also are.In my opnion,there's no way that Joe is taller than both ( except if you take the hair he will look taller).
Editor Rob: all 3 have the ability to measure roughly near 6ft 5, it certainly would be interesting measuring these guys to see which was truly the tallest.
Thereel said on 11/Jan/17
Guys don't believe his lies this guy downgrades himself to make his accomplishments at his already under sized position more impressive, on Conan he looked significantly taller, in his prime he was 6'5 3/4" nowerdays he is still 6'5 1/2" at the very least. DON'T LISTEN TO HIM HE Has A Few Inches On The Rock For CHR*** SAKE.

@Danimal: bad angles. I saw a pic with Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony where they were appearing the same (similar to that pic) but in truth Amare is 2+ on him in every other pic. No question he looks taller than he is meaning Barkley but looking at him next rob danny manning who is 6'9 and next to Ainge who is 6'4 he looks about as tall as Michael Jordan would be. This is my opinion
Danimal said on 15/Dec/16
Come on people, he's easily 6" taller than 6'0" Dave Grohl and is equal in height to 6'7" Krist Novoselic!!! NO WAY is or was he only 6'4"-6'5". NO WAY!! A case can be made that he actually looked closer to 6'7" back then in 1993.

@Christian: tough call there! I agree In that he looks taller or can. But I also have seen pics with Kobe where he edged him out (2 recent ones) and have seen several with him edging out MJ but also MJ edging him out. Honestly if I had to choose I'd say all three can dip below 195. Jordan maybe at 6'4.5 and Barkley 6'4 5/8 then Kobe maybe around 6'4.6-.7. Kobe imho looks 6'5 almost all the time where as Jordan can look 6'4 range next to others and Barkley as well next to some of his past teammates like Majerle and Ainge. Kobe really only looks under 195 if he's next to maybe Rick Fox or Ron Harper

@Christian: meaning neither is 6'5 if Barkley measured 6'4 5/8

-------------

I don't know, Canson. Barkley doesn't look as low as 194.6cm. And the average guess here currently is 6ft5.27in (which in my opinion is too high), but he doesn't look like a guy who would dip under 195cm, unlike Jordan and Kobe. I would pick Barkley as the tallest one out of the three, and Jordan and Kobe are tied.

My opinion:

Out of bed 196-196.5
Before bed 194-195 (194.3-194.6 specifically).

Dan Majerle and Danny Ainge have both said he's maybe 6'5 likely closer to 6'4 meaning 6'4.5. Guys around his height one 6'4 the other 6'5.5 roughly have an easier time telling how tall he is not to mention they have seen the meadurements having been on the same team and played with him

Jordan is not taller than Barkley, if anything, it may be the opposite.
Canson said on 22/Nov/16
@S.J.H: The difference with rock and Barkley looks between 2-3" once the pic is blown up. They have one that is a bit larger in view and gives better perspective. Rock from what my buddy told me is at most 6'2. He has a pic with him too and while the diff looked more than an inch he conceded it was about that. My buddy is exactly 6'3. I guess there is always a shot for 6'1 7/8. He has also met Barkley in person and says that the latter is "my height". I'm 194 at my lowest so maybe he has me by 1/4" but tbh I wouldn't be surprised if he came down to 6'4.5 either. Barkley IMHO if measured at 6'4 5/8 at the olympics like he was is around 2.5-2.75" taller than Rock most likely. The problem is (and you see the posts below), other than Bobby3342, people always want to upgrade Barkley because they don't want to admit the other celebs aren't as tall as advertised. I mean I see posts claiming now "he wasn't measured in the olympics and they knocked 3cm off". That doesn't make any sense because it would make him 195 which is over 6'4 3/4 let alone a very specific measurement of 6'4 5/8 not to mention he was one of the few measured it mentioned.

Jordan looks taller than Barkley. It's obviously hard to tease out the influence of posture, footwear, camera angle and heighy loss (they are 53 years old), but it's definitely interesting.

Lol i just notice this above. Tiger woods must have slap himself for this joke. If Barkley is 6'3.5-6'3.75 and 6'4 a good day then woods is no more than 5'10.5 on a good day and is just a 5'10 guy

Barkley was measured as 6ft4 5/8ths in Beijing at one point. So even if that was his evening low height, he can't be more than 6ft4.75 during noontime. I don't get why the average guess vote is over 6ft5.

No Chris he isn't 6'6 or 6'7 and no he didn't say it to sell a book. Look below and you will see other people who have met him as well as teammates say that. He isn't 3-4" taller than the Rock. 2-3". And rock is 6'2 not 6'3
Chris said on 1/Oct/16
Firstly, look at his police mugshots - he's 6'8 in shoes.

Secondly, look at the pictures of him with Dawyne "The Rock" Johnson, and he's at least 3 inches taller than the guy.

As I said, I think Barkley just said the "I'm only 6'4" thing to get attention for his book.

All evidence to.me suggests he's over 6'6
Chris said on 1/Oct/16
You're crazy if you think Charles is actually 6'4. I think he was just playing around, to get headlines to promote his book.

I've seen him with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson before and he's at least 3-4 inches taller than him!

The Rock isn't 6 foot tall. His 6'3 listed height is very genuine. He was listed at 6'5 in college football, for example.

So it's very likely Barkley is over 6'6. He looks between 6'6 and 6'7 in ever picture I've seen of him
S.J.H said on 22/Sep/16
Hardly believe that charles barkley is only 6'4 like some site stated. If his only 6'4 he really make tiger wood look 5'11 , the rock look 6'1 , gabrielle reece look 6'1 and even lisa leslie look 6'3 with him
Canson said on 21/Sep/16
Barkley is in the 6'4" range, not even 6'5. I know more than one person who has met him personally that are close in height with him. Teammates coaches the whole nine have said it. People here are always so quick to upgrade him when someone else claims to be "6'0 or 6'4" or whatever else and he is taller than they are. It's always that he "downplays his height". He doesn't. He claims his barefoot measurement likely in the afternoon. I think the people in the links below that have actually "MET him" know what they are talking about. And if he looks 6'4 more likely is 6'4.5 at most in the afternoon.

@Boss: he and Jordan are the same height. MJ has also said it. Barkley looks taller against many due to his build but the consensus in the league was that he was 6'4 and change. My 6'3 friend met him in person and said he has the same difference with him as he does with me (194cm-6'4 3/8 at my lowest). Maybe 6'4.5 as his lowest but I doubt hes much more than that when he was measured 6'4 5/8 at the Olympics. People construe him saying he was 6'4 when in reality he was 6'4.5 as downplaying is the issue
Canson said on 22/Aug/16
@Rob: not so sure that's his lowest. Many ppl who have played with him call him 6'4. Doubt he's that low but there's a chance he falls to the lower 194 range
Animus said on 19/Aug/16
Rob, do you believe Barkley is shorter than Michael Jordan?
Editor Rob: they may well fall into the same zone, and it is Barkley who is giving his lowest measurement he got.

@Shane: I agree. That one wasn't the best. There was another pic with Kobe and his wife that Barkley was in too, and he looked only marginally shorter (like 1/4"). That is more realistic. If I had to guess MJ Barkley and Kobe are all very similar between 6'4.5-.75.

So you're implying that Barkley's 6'7"? Give me a break. He can't be over 6'5". That pic made Barkley look 6'6", not 6'7", and that was because the two were standing on uneven ground, giving Barkley over an inch height advantage.
Boss said on 5/Aug/16
Barkley liked to downplay his height because he wanted people to base his talents on skill and not his height. He is almost always slouching or tilting his head down in pics.

@Canson: my friend, Kobe is closer to camera in that image and photographer also close and seemingly much shorter so i dont read much into that image. I think photos are rarely very,helpful unless people are on exact same plane exactly same distance and angle from camera and in same shoes. Very rare to get all those things and even the slighest deviation can cause a big difference in how tall people do or do not look in photos.

@Canson β€” can I ask you an honest question? Do you spend all of your days sitting in front of a screen commenting on each of these celebrity heights, or just most of the day? I wouldn't have even thought to post this, but after looking through a handful of these celeb height pages, it's obvious that you've not only commented and analyzed many of these individuals (I have only checked on athletes, and that's where I've seen your many posts, so perhaps you just focus on them), but – that being said – you've been audacious enough to blatantly point out others' stupidity, going so far as to label others. Not to mention your posts which point to others' lack of logical thought/reasoning, and then arguing over a difference in .15 cm (in re your post from 23 July 2016). I just find it rather...bizarre, to say the least. But you have your opinions and I certainly have mine - so...to each his own, I guess. Just keep in mind, there are plenty of people (not only myself) who could [probably] run circles around you intellectually. Unfortunately, I must use the word "probably," as I don't know you

@Height: to add to the previous post as well @Dawkins: you are assuming when you say "out of bed" "at their lowest" that the height listed is their lowest. Most NBA players are measured in the morning you do know that right? im sure some are some aren't. So how could their listed heights be their lowest?

196-196.5 out of bed 194-195 before bed same height as Jordan and Kobe
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
Sorry Dawkins. But you obviously haven't met him and you appear to be talking out of the side of your mouth on all of your estimates as many are just hypotheses. I agree they did knock off 3cm for the players but that would've put Barkley at 6'4 3/4 (195 cm is 6'4.77 not 6'4.625) And this person has as have all of his teammates such as Danny Ainge Dan Majerle Moses Malone (see my video below). Now why would Malone say he's 6'4 when he's near 6'6? And if you see pics with Barkley and Danny Manning in Phoenix it's clear that a 6'9 guy like Manning with a 194-195 guy is there.

Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@Height: I agree with what you said about the Barcelona measurements but Barkley and Magic were supposedly measured as others weren't supposedly. Barkley's is pretty specific while they didn't give one for Magic they just said closer to. As for Dawkins, he or she is talking out of their you know what and just putting heights out for everyone. Dawkins has guys like Steph curry losing more height than some of the centers do and more than Jordan and Barkley And his initial posts for Barkley and Jordan before were 197-198 out of bed for Barkley and 196 at night then 196-197 in the morning for Jordan and 195 at night. Dawkins is using an educated guess for all of them I hope but it does seem like it's just throwing out numbers and not actually a true measurement. Now Barkley pulling off or giving the 6'5 impression may be possible but him being 199 out of bed and 197 at night 6'5 5/8 would mean he's near 6'6 at night and that doesn't add up with all the stuff I've heard everyone else say over the years. Never seen one person describe him as over 6'5. Also see the link from my last post where someone met him in person

@Height: I know you aren't inflating him. You have always made great points and I know you are objective. That's my opinion on Mason just like it is yours. Honestly Mason could look bigger than 6'6 at times (he looks almost as tall as Pippen at times). I've also seen in your case where you make a good judgment to downgrade when necessary. As I've said before you are objective and see what you see and are balanced in thinking!
Height said on 21/Jul/16
@Canson

I'm not inflating Mason, if you check footage of him for comparison you will see that I have a point.

About Barkley's claim, he has also claimed 6'5.5" and 6'5" several times... so 6'4.75" is not his only claim.
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
@Height: it's possible but seeing him against taller guys and how he has been described as low as 6'5-6'6 before its inconclusive. Mason just like Barkley (we see how many have described Charles taller) is built oddly. Both along with Jordan look taller than they are. If I didn't know better I'd prob give all 3 their listed heights based on how they look 6'6 and 6'7. But truth is 194-195 for two and 198 for the other look very tall. I say what I say because I have gotten "you look as tall as so and so who is a 198cm friend of mine who is built differently than I am. But no he's clearly 1.5-2" taller than me in reality. If you look at what the taller people here like KROC Bobby3342 Ali Baba even Shane have said we see almost the same thing. Even Shane who I commend for his honesty saying he uses an out of bed height but still isn't inflating these guys he says at their lowest that's what he sees them measuring.
Height said on 19/Jul/16
@ Canson

You should check footage of Mason next to 195 cm guys. To see how he edges them by more than 3 cm., again you should also check him next to players who are in the 199 cm - 200 cm range like Glen Rice or Dennis Rodman. You'll see that Mason is very similar in height, he is more of a 199 cm guy.

Once again Pucko, Moses Malone says it here. So it's more than likely that he is. Now it's more than likely he's a strong 6'4 or weak 6'5 (in the afternoon) and that these other people aren't as tall as they claim
Canson said on 19/Jul/16
@Pucko: are you implying I'm downplaying Stern's height? When I said he's 6'5? Or are you saying Barkley is downplaying his height? He was measured 6'4 5/8 at the Olympics. Oh and btw look below. He isn't downplaying anything. And don't say this person doesn't know because he is right in line with what everyone else who has met and described him has said. I don't give a rats A$$ how you all keep saying he looks against "unmeasured celebs who self proclaim their heights". come on. I'm waiting to hear an excuse now as everyone else provides when someone says Barkley's actual height.

@Height: he has claimed 6'4. I've never heard him claim 6'4.5 or list himself as 6'4.5 with the exception of when he said "he and Charles Barkley were the exact same height about 6'4.5". Barkley I can believe around there but Danny to me at least solid 6'4. He doesn't look like he's lost much if he has. Other thing is if we're going off claims then that'd make Charles what he claims since he's said he's 6'4.75 and others have described him 6'4 range as well

On your response to Dawkins. He does have a point, and still to this day there is no actual proof that players where really measured at Barcelona 92. The alleged measurements by sports illustrated all seem 3 cms less than the players height with shoes (like the video posted on Kobe's page).

- Magic 205 cm (NBA) - 3 cms = 202 cm which is "closer to 6'7"than to 6'9" "
- Barkley 198 cm (NBA) - 3cms = 195 cm which is "more like 6'4 5/8 than 6'6" "
Dawkins said on 18/Jul/16
None of the Barcelona dream teamers where measured. They knocked off 3 cms from NBA listings.

Sorry, but Danny Ainge has claimed 6'4.5"many times (one in the interview I posted) and he looks that as a player. Never a flat 6'4", he may be a flat 6'4"now in his late 50's though (he turns 60 in 2.5 years)

@Shane you should check Mason in game footage, he is pretty much the same height as a Dennis Rodman or even Glen Rice. 6'5.5" is an exaggerated low for Mason.
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Height: Danny Ainge is not 6'4.5 like you mentioned. I saw pics with Keith Bogans and Bogans is "clearly" taller at 6'4.25. My guess is maybe Ainge dropped a fraction under and was never more than 6'4 flat
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Shane: that looks legit with Oak and Mase. I agree. I had Oak around 201-202 and that adds up with Mase at 197+. Mase looked big on the court because of the absurd muscle he had on him but next to taller guys you could see the difference
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Shane: to be honest I can see that too. I've heard Mase classified as 6'5-6'6 before. I saw a pic with he and Larry Johnson and if Johnson didn't lean they'd be similar in height.
Shane said on 16/Jul/16
@Canson I agree 6'6" flat for the late Mason. I believe, however, 6'6" would be him early in the day. I can see him dropping to 6'5" 1/2 easily. @Height I actually think your photo with Mason by Oakley makes Mason look around 1.5 inches shorter than Oak even with slight camera advantage.
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
Fast forward to Moses malone's comments. Yet another teammate or former teammate who describes him as 6'4 range. funny how all over this site people post "oh Derek Theler or Blake Griffin or so and so said they were such and such" and it's deemed "holy grail" "no bs" valid proof but someone who was as close as it comes to the person, a teammate, their word is no good. Oh well that's the way it is. Guess we are all about making people taller and raising the average height for the population to help boost people's egos and security

@Height: in shots with Miller and Rose on TV from the Espys (both Miller and Rose are listed 6'6 on their predraft measurements so I doubt either is any taller than that) Barkley can look closer to 6'4. However don't know if he was standing straight. Worst case is both have a strong inch like 1.25-1.5 on him
Canson said on 12/Jul/16
@Height: great pics. I'm not sure how much difference he has on Howard honestly. To me it looks more half inch than nearly an inch. Howard is prob 6'9 flat while Hakeem is likely 208 which is 2 cm like you said. Durant can look taller than Howard (from some pics I've seen honestly). As for Mason, to me at least he looks 6'6". Some people have put him as low as 6'5 range but I know he definitely isn't that small. I've heard commentators once say 6'5-6'6 and 280 lbs But I agree he was 6'6". Oakley looks 202 to me
Height said on 11/Jul/16
@Canson

Hakeem is closer to 209 cm than to 208 cm. Considering that Howard is a little closer to the camera, the difference there is about 2cm, if Hakeem was at the same level as Howard it would be more like 2.5 cm -3 cm :

Click Here

Again Elie seems to be thinking on the higher end of 6'9" (208cm), which is a good estimate, but somewhat underrated.

As for Anthony Mason, a flat 6'6" is too low for him, 199 cm is the very least for him as he was always about the same height as Dennis Rodman and no more than 1 inch shorter than Charles Oakley (Mason is barely in front of Oakley making him appear about 1.5 cm shorter, if you put them at the same level it would be 2 cm - 2.5 cm):

Check him out next to 199 cm/200 cm players like Dennis Rodman or Glen Rice.

@Height: you may have Dream too high. He doesn't look much taller than Howard if at all. If anything maybe 1/2" and Howard really is 6'9 flat (like he was when he came in). Mario Elie says it here. Now I doubt Hakeem is really a flat 206. He's prob more 6'9.5-6'10 but he mentions 6'9 ranfe for him

@Height: I'm not sure when Anderson was measured but poss that's not his lowest but I see prob still around 194 (6'4.25-.3). He and MJ can look the same height honestly so it could be that he is 6'4.5 too. One thing I have noticed about MJ is that his body (long and thinner) than others makes him appear taller

@Shane: that's a good estimate. Starks is 6'2" like you said! And Ewing is 6'10. I'd put oak around 6'7 and Mase (Rest in Peace) 6'6 flat absolute most. Side note Biggie had a song referencing a "6'5" Knick and that song was apparently about Anthony Mason.

@Height: you're right about Anderson. I always thought he was only 6'4 flat. He never struck me as a 6'4.5 guy.

Those Knicks teams had some very liberal height listings such as Starks being close to 6'2 barefoot with a 6'5 listing, Ewing in the 6'10 range etc. I always felt Mason clearly looked more 6'6 than 6'8. Not sure on Oakley... keep in mind Oakley had some NBA years with a 6'9 rather than 6'8 listing. Id say the roughly 6'7 barefoot estimates are solid for him.

Thanks For the article! Perhaps it's a typo and they meant to put half inch taller? The article also list Nick Anderson at 6'4.5".

Agree that he is as tall or maybe a tad taller than Pippen! I still see him just a hair under a flat 6'8" though at about 202 cm - 202.5 cm or even a flat 203 cm (6'7.94") like I initially stated.

You are coming up with good material, keep it coming.

@Canson although the norm was to list inflated heights and most commonly, 6'5.5" was listed at 6'7", that did not necessarily happen all the time. Many 6'5.5" guys were listed at 6'6" for example (Thinking Dan Majerle, Mark Aguirre or even Dr J in the ABA).

Olajuwon is 6'10" (actually like 6'10.25" - see him next to Dwight Howard) and Ewing has always been from 1 cm to 2 cm (about half inch) taller than Olajuwon, so Ewing is closer to 6'11". The problem with that picture is that Oakley is not next to Starks, and Ewing is the closest to the camera so that makes Oakley appear a little shorter.

Trust me when I say that Oakley is no less than a flat 203 cm guy. Pause at the start of this video, he is next to Pippen who is about 202cm and both have dress shoes, he is just a tad taller: Click Here

@Height: this is where I got the info about Oakley but it says he measured 1/2" shorter than Randy White (who is 6'6.75) making Oakley 6'6.25. I thought it say they were the same. i don't buy Oakley being this small. I think he'd be 1/2" taller. I don't think he's 6'8 barefoot but I would say he's 201-202. He didn't look any (noticeably) taller than Pippen did imho from pics i saw. I mean if we saw them back to back possible oak would have him by maybe a 1/4" or 1/2" but otherwise couldn't see it. And was about 3" shorter than Ewing.

@Danimal: if he were 6'5.5 he'd be listed at 6'7. Remember he was a power forward. They listed Julius Erving that and he played small forward
