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.
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."

@Frank: I never heard Barkley ever say he's 6'5.5. But yea in shoes in those days he would've been (he'd be 6'6 in shoes today or close to it). But I did hear him say he was 6'4.75 and you hear Chick Hearn say "you're not 6'6 you're not even 6'5".

Click Here

Also listen to Dan Majerle around 1:20-2:00. Majerle isn't 6'6 like he claims he is. He's shorter than Reggie Miller 1/2" and Steve Smith 1" (I'll agree he's prob 6'5 1/2 tho).but he said he's taller than Barkley

@Height: he doesn't look as tall as Jordan is and Jordan is 194-195 not a solid 195er. Ainge himself said he's 6'4 and that Barkley is 1/2 or so taller. Also remember if Ainge were that tall (he came out in the 80s) he would've been listed 6'6 like the formers. He never looked that tall on the court and if you see him next to Doc Rivers (who is more than likely 6'4 in shoes) he is taller but barely

In 1993, Charles Barkley said he was 6 feet 5 and a half. At that time he would not yet have begun shrinking, so it's safe to assume that he was between 6'5.5" and 6'5.75 inches at his absolute tallest.

@Canson

Danny Ainge has always been at least 195cm. You can see him next to MJ and both wearing nike soles. MJ is no less than 195 cm- 195.5 cm :

@Height: Ainge is listed 6'4 here. Wouldn't surprise me if he's even a hair under. If he were truly 195 cm barefoot, he'd never be 6'4 on any references he'd always get 6'5 or 6'6. Dan Majerle in the interview with Dan Patrick claims that he's 6'6 (he looks shorter than normal legit 6'6s. I'd def say he's 6'5 1/2 but he's taller than Ainge by a good amount 1.5"+ and he mentioned to Patrick that Charles is "maybe" 6'5 before Patrick said "yea he's under 6'5" and Majerle agreed. It's on YouTube from about a month ago. Patrick called Barkely the size of Buddy Hield but of course you and I both know he isn't that small even if Hield were really almost 6'4 Hield is overlisted and is really more 6'3.25-.5 not almost 6'4

@Rob: bird definitely isn't 6'7 but he wasn't measured at that. They only mentioned magic and Barkley as getting measured (in your quote above). The others had two inches knocked off if not given official measurements. From all of Barkley's former teammates they've described him as either "barely 6'5" or 6'4. Of course I can't see a flat 6'4 but can see him being 6'4.5 at his lowest easily. I even have a 6'2 friend who met him and a 6'3 that said he looked 6'4ish

@Height: Danny Ainge said himself he's 6'4 (flat) and that Barkley is only half inch or so taller. Ainge isn't almost 6'5 barefoot
Canson said on 22/Jun/16
@Shane: I agree. I doubt an illegal stance. Probably perspective. Barkley is much bigger than those two in the body and at a favored angle. I can believe Richmond is 6'4 or close to it but I doubt he's more than an inch taller if even that much. I don't see how when they measured him at 6'4 5/8 why everyone wants to inflate the guy. It's so they don't have to downgrade someone other than him. It's possible it's his lowest as well but a legit measurement
Height said on 22/Jun/16
Rob do you think he often tends to look 6'5"/ 6'5.5" next to legit 6'4.5" and 6'4.75" guys, but next to legit 6'9"/ 6'10" guys he looks 6'4.75"?
Editor Rob: for Barkley if he shrinks 3cm, for a time of the day he may well look a decent 6ft 5 range to people, but could end up sub 6ft 5.
Height said on 22/Jun/16
More often than not, he tends to look taller than 6'4.5" and 6'4.75"measured people. Looks taller than Danny Ainge who is about 195cm.
Canson said on 21/Jun/16
@Rob: he was measured 6'4 5/8 at the Olympics, I figured you'd have him 6'4.5 using the 1/4" system like Colin kapernick and Tom Brady
Editor Rob: I know the quote is here and it's been mentioned, but I don't know truly enough about these supposed measurements.

I mean Larry Bird 6ft 7 range seems hard to believe.
Shane said on 18/Jun/16
Someone below mentioned measuring illegally for a taller listing. The only way i know to do so would be to stand on tip toes or in shoes. Is that what was being referred to?
Height said on 31/May/16
And I also reckon that it's not the best picture to judge their height together (Richmond and Barkley) since we can't see their feet!
Height said on 30/May/16
Canson, I'll have to agree that Jason Kidd is more a 6'3" guy than a 6'2" guy. I honestly think he is 189.5cm-190cm which is a weak 6'3". With this there still is about a 4 inch difference between Carmelo (6'6.25"/ 199cm) and him (6'2.8" / 190cm).

Here he is next to legit 6'5"-6'5.25" Jimmy Jackson and both wearing the same shoe model, I see about a 2 inch difference there:

Click Here

Richmond could be a round up and much like you, I've always seen him as a legit 6'4" but could be just a tad shorter at 6'3.8-9" or so which is 192.5cm (virtually 6'4"). But as for the difference between him and Barkley I see a 2.5 inch difference in the picture, but considering that Barkley may be standing up a little taller (I can't see the position of their legs) in my opinion it could be anything from 1.25 to 1.5 inches.
Canson said on 27/May/16
@175: I doubt illegal stances. It's more that the measurement were rounded up a lot more back then. Also some get measured in the morning. Notice no 1/4" and 1/2". And Jason Kidd is 6'2 barefoot not 6'3. They always listed people in their shoe heights when they announced them on stage at the Draft. Kidd is 4 or so inches shorter than Carmelo Anthony is! And I have met Melo he's as listed, 6'6 1/4" I also know a scout who is a friend of mine and he's said Kidd is 6'2 as well and that MJ/Barkley/Kobe/Stachouse are all strong 6'4-weak 6'5. He is 6'3 himself and has met all four. Richmond may have been 6'4 but he could've been rounded up as well from a 6'3 1/2-3/4". He does look a full 6'4 however next to some players. But the pic that Darko posted is no good. Anyone will look taller lined up like that esp Barkley and he doesn't have 1.5" on him. It's prob 1 or less

Jason Kidd: 190 cm (6'2.9- 6'3)
Mitch Richmond: 193 cm ( 6'4)

Barkley is 197cm (6'5.5)

Get over it people.

They might have forced themselves to "illegally" stand taller and NBA draft rounded to the nearest inch. You're easily at a deviance of almost an inch... For instance if I force myself to stand the very tallest (give a d*** about 'Frankfurt Plane') I get an extra ~half inch!

Always looked tad bit taller than MJ in the NBA.
Canson said on 24/May/16
@GMAN: he almost always does. He was 6'4 5/8 at the Olympics. Customary to round. check out the interview with Dan Majerle and Dan Patrick. Patrick asked Majerle if Barkley was shorter than him and he said yes. "Charles was maaaybe 6'5. And I'm 6'6" is what he said. Patrick said he was under 6'5 so both seem in agreement. Majerle was measured 6'5 range at the 88 Olympics.

I have met Charles at least 15 times in my life and have had a few conversations with him, mostly about Auburn football. I did ask him how tall he was and he said he was 6'5 although his head has gotten fatter so he may be 6'5.5. He said without a doubt he has always been slightly taller than MJ and Kobe. Charles is difficult to judge because you just can't put into words how massive he is unless you see him. His width and girth make him seem like he is 6'10. He truly dwarfs everyone around him.
Arnold said on 21/May/16
Should be a flat 6-5 at least.
EzioAuditore711 said on 10/May/16
The reason he looks so much taller than The Rock is simple. Dwayne isn't as tall as most people think. My guess is 6'1" - 6'1.5". Look at him next to 6'0" Cena. A 6'1" Rock makes sense next to a 6'4.5" - 6'5" Barkley.
Canson said on 1/May/16
@Height: I agree. His head the way it's shaped and tilted down. The pics here that are posted. I don't get it when he was measured 6'4 5/8 that's what he is.

@Dempo: the same way Dr J can appear the same height as or shorter than Jordan on occasion. It's hard to tell that little a difference.

Very accurate list, Rob! Charles Berkeley is every bit of how a ''TRUE'' 6'4.75 would looks like!
Height said on 22/Apr/16
Canson,

I think there is a reason for the "inflation", especially because of the fact that he seems genuinely 1 cm and even 2 cm taller than 195 cm /196 cm basketball players like MJ/Kobe. Barkley on a more consistent basis seems to be at least 1cm taller than both of them, and those guys aren't any shorter than 195 cm-195.5 cm (6'4.80"-6'4.95").
Canson said on 21/Apr/16
It says above he was measured at 6'4 5/8. That is more reliable than comparing him to "Conan Obrien" or some other person (especially a non athlete) who has never been measured.
Canson said on 21/Apr/16
And the inflation of Barkley continues! Guess people can't accept that the other celebs in pics with him aren't as tall as they claim to be
Dark Knight said on 20/Apr/16
He's 196.5 cm-197 cm

Rob is 6ft5-5.5 a possibility for Charles or is 6ft 4.75 the most you think he'd be.Theres a lot of proof supporting 6ft5 and a bit over though.

maybe 197 but no more

He looks alot taller then the rock can someome explain that.
Canson said on 7/Apr/16
The Olympic measurements for Barkley come out 6'4 5/8 but Jordan 6'4 for one and 6'4 7/8 for the other. I'd go the latter as Jordan never looks "only" 193 flat. But from people who've met Jordan most likely would be 6'5.25 out of bed 6'4.5. Same with Barkley or a tad more as Jordan has longer legs Barkley a bit longer torso. Neither would be "6'5 avg" or even 6'4.75 lows
Canson said on 5/Apr/16
If he measured 6'4 5/8, hed Likely be 6'5-6'5.25 (somewhere in there) out of bed. I doubt 6'5.5, Mr TGuy

How can people ignore this height comparison from 1993???? Charles is standing next to 6'7" Krist Novoselic and 6'0" Dave Grohl. Barkley is young and thin here and has a clear 6" on Dave and is about 1" shorter than Krist. Rob, how much better of a comparison do you need? Click Here & Click Here
Rattajack said on 23/Mar/16
@Gary I know right-agreed, he looks to be almost 6' 6''. Either Charles Barkley needs to be upgraded or the The Rock Dwayne Johnson needs to be downgraded to 6' 2". In his special wrestling shoes he was billed at 6' 5", but not in real life. What do you think Rob?
Gary said on 22/Mar/16
@rattajack that picture makes Charles appear 6ft6 almost, I don't know why....
Rattajack said on 3/Mar/16
Charles Barkley is taller than most people think because he doesn't have the slim basketball body type like most NBA players. He is tall and wide with that Neanderthal build to him with a short neck, if his neck was proportion to his body length he be would taller. I met him in the 90's when he played for the Phoenix Suns and was at least 6' 5'' at his prime and was surprised by his gargantuan frame.

He is visibly taller than jordan in all videos, all gameplay footage, and most pictures of them together, Barkley needs an upgrade to 6'5" and Jordan needs to be the one at 6'4.75", the fact that people think he's 6'6" and that barkley is shorter than him is preposterous

My guess is that his absolute minimum should be 6'5".

@Johno: good estimate. Thats what Rob has him, That's what he claims and he was measured 6'4 5/8 and how he looks. All of these bad comparisons to other "unmeasured" celebrities are unreliable.

194-195 is the height range were you start to look really big IMO

He was virtually the same as Majerle who is almost 6-5 & a half...so I would say he is 6-5 flat at least.
unbiased gamer said on 22/Jan/16
canson, sorry but those pictures with Miller and Campbell are really weak. For starters you can't see their feet, so you don't know if one of them is wearing dress shoes or the other sneakers or even flip flops. And in the picture with Miller, you can't see their stance either, you cant tell for sure if barkley has his knees bent or his legs more spread out for that matter.

you bash the video posted with him and Jordan, but yet come out with weaker evidence and with a picture where Miller is a little in front of him and and more favored by the camera angle, the picture taken from the right side
Canson said on 21/Jan/16

Reggie Miller has 1-1.5" on Barkley and is 6'6 barefoot tops (has said he is between 6'5-6'6 on more than one occasion). Charles is also the exact same height as 6'4 1/2 Lennox Lewis.
Canson said on 21/Jan/16

So question here. Since this above pic has been posted repeatedly but seems to get slid under the rug. How much taller is Calais Campbell than Barkley? Looks at least 3" to me. Calais measured 6'7 5/8 in the draft. Charles was measured 6'4 5/8 at the Olympics in 1992.

Height: I think you're trying too hard here. The same video he doesn't look any taller in this one. It is a bad perspective. I agree in some pics he does but others MJ does. Guess anything is possible but this video is not very good to show it as they look the same height when settled. The person in front is always going to look taller

Taller than most people give him credit for... He is not a weak nor a strong 6-4, he's right there at 6-5.

He was slightly shorter than Thunder Dan who was a little over 6-5.

Height said on 15/Jan/16
I still think that he is taller than MJ, not by much (1cm- 1.5cm). He has always looked taller than him when there are close together and there are more pictures that evidence that Barkley is slightly taller, as opposed to the ones that show that he is the same size.

Watch at minute 6:11 Click Here

To me MJ is 195 cm and Charles is 196.5 cm
Canson said on 14/Jan/16
I love it how the good pictures that have perspective with Calais Campbell Lennox Lewis, Reggie Miller, etc get ignored and people still want to automatically upgrade Barkley because he is taller than the other 6'4 or 6'5 listed guys here, many of which are actually 6'3 or less in stocking feet. Most people want to make Conan 6'4 like he claims because he may get insulted if we don't!!!!!! Most people don't realize how tall a true 6'3 barefoot like Conan really is. That's what distorts things. As a 6'4/6'5 guy myself I can sometimes barely tell a difference with a true 6'3 if they have even 1/2" more footwear and others sometimes cant. Most of the logic used here revolves around a person's shoe height and claimed height and is bolstered by bad pictures. It also centers around wanting to pacify the guys like Conan, etc who get their feelings hurt when someone claims their real height and is out of agreement with him being 6'4 that he claims in shoes. Keep in mind that the camera also gives someone 2" and maybe 10 lbs more.

How is Barkley 6'5 or over with a guy who measured 6'7 1/2-6'7 5/8 and has a good 3" on him? Calais Campbell? He has said himself that he is under 6'5. His peers have said it, announcers said it. Hell Bill Belichick said it when he met him. He was officially measured 6'4 5/8 at the Olympics. People ignore the good pics and the real evidence. Barkley is and has always been the same height as Kobe and Jordan and many of the other 6'6 listed (lol in Bobby's words- weak azz 6'5 guys). Jordan has admitted it himself. Kobe and Jordan are the same height. These other quote on quote 6'6" guys are 6'5 1/2-6'6 in shoes just like these 3 are. to put it into perspective, if Barkley is 6'6 barefoot, then Kobe and Jordan are too and the latter wouldn't have been guards for the bulk of their careers. They would've been too big and too slow in those days. Not to mention, didn't have a speciality and range like a true 6'5-6'6 guy like Reggie Miller did to keep them in the backcourt. Miller has said before he is near 6'6 barefoot. Miller clearly has an advantage over Barkley, Jordan or Kobe. Kobe and Jordan would've been small forwards and all 3 would've been listed at 6'7-6'8 their entire careers (Kobe's 6'7 listing for a year or two was a joke and was because of his Afro and because he played the 3 a lot when Eddie jones started there in his first two years). To put it into perspective, Barkley and Jordan and Kobe at 6'6 barefoot would make them as tall as the Underaker and close to Tyler Mane. The latter two are actually closer to a guy like Scottie Pippen now or even Magic Johnson (when they were in their primes). welcome to Hollywood like Bobby3342 says. 90% of the guys in Hollywood are listed in shoes and claim a shoe height.

Canson I mostly agree with you but Charles barkley and danny ainge are not the same size dannys a inch shorter, He is pulling the classic oh hes only 6 4.75 that's the same as my listed height of 6'5. except it not! 1 is a barefoot height and 1 is a shoe height I see that far too many times than I care to mention(im sure you do too) being bf 6'4.5 and walking up to a 6'3 guy claiming 6'5 is not fun when you try to tell him your only 6 '4 and he's really only 6'3 if that

Danny Ainge says it best
Canson said on 5/Jan/16
He actually measured 6'4 5/8 at the '92 Olympics. But (Credit to Sportsheight on Steph Curry's page), apparently some measurements occurred,at one point, in the afternoon (think prior to '09). However, times seem inconsistent as a 20/21 year old Keith Bogans measured 6'4.5 one year 6'4.25 the next. Could be Margin of error.

Either way, I think I have to agree with the peers of Charles, like MJ, Tom Chambers, Mo Cheeks, Joe Klein, Dan Majerle, Danny Ainge, and the list goes on and people I know who have seem him that say 6'4 and change or a little under 6'5. Funny because Barkley calls himself 6'5 sometimes as he is (6'4.75). The consensus is pretty consistent across people who have seen him in person vs some of the fanboys here who automatically upgrade him to 6'5 1/2 or 6'6 as they think it will be a "sin" to other celebs to downgrade him as it brings them down along with him.

I can think of two NBA players under 7 feet barefoot who use their barefoot heights and it is because they are too tall for their positions, not too short like Barkley is. I'm talking Kevin durant and Garnett. If Barkley were 6'6 barefoot, he'd be 6'7 or 6'8 in shoes and would be listed that way. Why would he, the smallest power forward in the league at the time, be listed barefoot and not in shoes when all the other guys are???

Nearly Every celeb (a good chunk of the ones Rob has listed here) is measured in shoes or claims a shoe height. Very few don't. By that same logic Barkley and Jordan are 6'6- when they are in shoes!!!!! Problem is shoes aren't part of your body and when he takes them off Barkley is more like 6'4 1/2.

Maybe 6'4.75'' could be Charles absolute lowest height over the day w/o shoes. But, he still pulls of looking solid 6'5''.
Canson said on 28/Dec/15
Height,

I don't see much difference between Pippen and Melo. Maybe half inch is there but that's about it. Its possible Melo drops under 6'6 too but I doubt by much. That pic with Calais Campbell and Barkley is at least 3 inches as well where Barkley looks 6'4. To be fair, neither picture we posted is a great angle. Pippen is favored there too. You do make very good points tho and you have a good sense based on what you see and at least aren't biased. I agree with most of your assessments you have for others like Lebron and Rodman, etc. I thought the same about Pippen until I saw him next to Horace Grant, etc. Get a pic with either he or Olajuwon and Pippen looks 6'6 range with them.

We need one more like what was posted by Ozzie where they are all right next to each other from a distance and same view. In that one it clearly has Pippen barely taller than Reggie Miller and shorter than grant hill and about the same as penny. I'm not disagreeing as you may be right about Pippen but most have said 6'7 in shoes who have seen him in person. I think the key is that height varies throughout the day and depends on when we measure. Some say Jordan is 6'5 some say 6'4. Pippen if I had to guess is probably similar. Some may see him 6'7 bare in the morning and he may be 6'6 at night.

Canson: That pic with Magic and Barkley isn't a good one. They are clearly at least a foot apart from each other, and one is in further away from the other.

About your Pip and Melo Pic...Even with the caps on, Scottie is visibly taller than Melo. That pic shows more evidence of Pippen being more 6'7"- 6'7.5"

Here he is next to 6'6.5" Glen Rice: Click Here

Height,

Not seeing an inch between Melo and Pippen. They look the same here. Pip has the hat on but I still see no neglibile difference and that is with the two of them right next to each other. If I had to guess he's 6'6.5-.75 tops. As for the diff with MJ/Barkley Pip, it's too close to call. As said before, Barkley is taller in some pics. Jordan is in some. Some are the same

Height said on 23/Dec/15
Canson: Similar difference, but not the same as Barkley is taller than MJ.

Pippen is actually more like 6'7"-6'7.5"... he's about an inch taller than 6'6.25" Melo. He's about the same height as Magic Johnson. Pippen has always had about 2,5 to 3 inches on MJ.
Canson said on 23/Dec/15
Height: I see similar difference with Barkley and Pippen in that pic you posted as I do Jordan and Pippen between 1.5-2" tops. I see about the same with Kobe and Pip. All three are likely the same. MJ/Barkley are both somewhere between 6'4-6'5 and Pippen is really 6'6 and change barefoot. Looking at pictures of Pippen his long face, arms and legs give the impression he is taller than he is. In reality, I don't see him being any taller than Ali Baba was in his prime. He also doesn't look noticeably taller than Reggie Miller and Penny Hardaway and looks marginally shorter than Grant Hill who is said to be 6'7 barefoot. The difference that people claim there between Pippen and Dennis Rodman is also overblown. He is very close in height to Rodman like less than an inch and some pics rodman looks taller some they are about the same. It's funny when I see some of the players who I always thought were 6'6-6'8 when they played are only really my height up to maybe an inch or inch and a half taller.
Height said on 22/Dec/15
Canson, I understand your point. And again other players claims may be subjective too, it depends I guess....but I can't see Barkley being just 6'4" or 6'4.5" or 6'4.75"

I honestly think he is at least 6'5" (196cm)... maybe even 6'5.25"

He looks like a giant next to 5'11" Jimmy Fallon: Click Here

@Bobby3342: you're right! Joe M looks a bit shorter than Strahan so chances are he may be shorter than MJ and chuck. I would've thought he was close to legit and close to the same height as those two, six four and change but now I wonder. He's 6'4 tops maybe even a weak 6'4 in some of the pics.
bobby3342 said on 21/Dec/15
face it the whole world goes by shoe height . and even these listings are supposed to be barefoot estimates but some are correct a lot are off by a1.5inches especially when you compare athletes to Hollywood. for instance tim robbins, usain bolt, joe mangiello , are not as big as barkley or Jordan. you can bank on it
Canson said on 21/Dec/15
Height: I agree that claims may not be true all the time. However, if chick Hearn who was 6'3 was able to tell he wasn't even 6'5 and Danny ainge said he was 6'4. He probably is. Not to mention Joe Klein, Michael Jordan, mo cheeks have either said he is 6'4 or is between 6'4-6'5 which cheeks said.

People are always so quick to upgrade the chuckster when in reality he actually refers to himself as 6'5 (and often clarifies 6'4 3/4) while others say he is closer to 6'4. Likely that he measures in the morning or midday and that he really is in the 6'4 range. He looks taller with other celebs because they are also being billed in shoes as all celebs do. No secret there. This site is about real barefoot heights not shoe heights.

There is an excerpt from a press conference in Phoenix where Danny ainge was in his presence and challenged Charles when he told the media he was 6'6 and told him no way he was. Also, remember the interview when he was still a sixer with chick Hearn (it is out on YouTube still) where chick tells him you're not 6'6 you're not even 6'5 when describing his talent. And Charles says he is almost 6'5 and that he is 6'4 3/4 that why he calls himself 6'5/6'6. So he isn't downgrading anything it's others that see or know him doing it because they know he isn't 6'6.

also remember the slam dunk contest of 2002 or 03 where Danny ainge commented on Jason Richardson's first dunk and said he isn't 6'6, he's only 6'4 and "he's your size Charles". The video is still out their on YouTube as well. So In reality, he is not over 6'6 or a legit 6'5 like many say he is. and I highly doubt the 6'4 3/4 is his lowest since the olympics officially measured him at 6'4 5/8. He still claims and has stuck to 6'4 3/4 and rounds to 6'5. just saying what I heard him say on now multiple occasions. I've only heard him say 6'5 1/4 or 6'5 1/2 with shoes on which makes perfect since. If you want proof go onto YouTube and watch the two videos.

@wingwalker

I understand, but keep in mind that is one of the many heights he has vocally claimed, other times it has been 6'5" and sometimes it has been 6'5.5. I honestly think he has liked to fool around with this all his life, he likes to downgrade his real height in order for his achievements as a basketball player look more impressing.
wingwalker said on 11/Aug/15
Barkley was vocal about silly NBA height listing is, so if he said he was 6'4.75 there's no reason to doubt that. And that was at his peak, he's 52 now so he could have lost a bit. Either way he puts The Rock at no more than 6'2, and that's with Rock standing perfectly straight next to Barkley who is kinda sorta leaning a bit.
Tunman said on 20/Jul/15
@Heightcrazyred6ft
Barkley could have measured 6'4.75 at his worst like Kobe?All here agree that both players look genuine 6'5 at least
As for MJ there's always a chance for 6'4.5" but no less...always the problem of time measurement.Strange that Rob keeps Charles shorter than MJ, 1cm difference but in favour of Barkley in my opinion
Lillo Thomas said on 7/Jul/15
Maybe charles Barkley is 6'5 flat max. In that case , that's bad news for the rock. Barkley at 6'5 flat put the Rock at barely 6'2 flat.

Sorry, but you basically lost all credibility on this page by saying Conan was max 6'2". He was taller than Sacha Baron Cohen (the most clear-cut 6'3" guy on the planet), Will Ferrel, Jason Segel, and Jeff Goldblum (in their last meeting).

Conan also had noticeable height on Dolph Lundgren a few years ago. Minimum 1.5" on him.

I'm curious as to how Kenny Smith dogs Barkley as being 6'4" to which Charles replies back 6'5", when Kenny is clearly at LEAST 3" smaller than Barkley. You'd think he'd leave it be since their listings are 6'6" and 6'3"
Height said on 2/Jun/15
If Barkley is 6'4.75" (195 cm) then Jordan should be downgraded to 6'4.25" (193.5 cm). Otherwise, at peak height it could be Barkley : 6'5" (196 cm) and Jordan 6'4.5" (194.5 cm) as stated by Pat Riley.
ballsach said on 30/May/15
I am pretty sure I said this already. Lennox Lewis has stated he is 6'4 3/4. Riddick Bowe stated he is 6'4 3/4 there are pictures that show they are the same height. There are pictures of Barkley and Lewis on this site and they are the same height.

Yeah that sounds as good as it gets.
In my opinion there will always be an issue with Hogan listed at 6´6" and Barkley at 6´4.75 when all brought up evidence showing Barkley the taller man.
Same with Barkley and MJ.

Barkley peak 6´5.5"
MJ peak 6´4.75"
Hogan peak 6´5"

Boateng is in sneakers there, while Zlatan is wearing dressing shoes. And Zlatan is closer to the camera. That pic lies a lot. Zlatan looks 197cm there. Thiego Silva is 182cm, and he reaches only Zlatan's lower nose. Normally he should reach Zlatan's eye level. So i wouldnt pay too much tension on that pic.

Click Here

But anyway, Barkley has also claimed 197cm, and he surely looks that height. He has also claimed 195cm, but we dont know weather he was standing tall there, or was he measure late in the evening. To me he doesnt look that low. But hey, Rob is the site master, and obviously he wants to leave Sir Charles at 195cm. That's totally ok with me, even i disagree. After all, this site is about discussing heights. I have said enough on this topic, so you may continue.
Height said on 24/Apr/15
I'd say Barkley is 6'5" (196 cm) flat at least. I was and advocate of the 6'5.5" (197cm) measurement, but know with the knowledge of how height changes during the day, I'm not sure. The thing that is clear is that he's taller than MJ.

I truly think that at a minimum Charles is 196cm-197cm and that MJ is 194cm-195cm.

Like said, dont try to downgrade everybody who looks short with Barkley. Boris Kodjoe is actually closer to 194cm than 191cm. Just google and you will notice. Couple of pics here. Andy Roddick is 188cm. The guy on the very right, John Isner, is 208cm. Kodjoe allmost reaches his eyelevel, which means ca. 14cm difference. Roddick reaches Isners mouth level, which means 20cm difference, which is pretty accuracy.

He was taller than Sacha Baron Cohen (the most clear-cut 6'3" guy on the planet), Will Ferrel, Jason Segel, and Jeff Goldblum (in their last meeting). So if he's 6'2", what does that make them? 6'1" range? LOL! He's AT LEAST 192 cm. You can believe whatever foolish opinion you want, but no one on this site with common sense is going to take you seriously if you say things like "I'll give him (Conan) 6'2 max."

As for Barkley, I'm not sure. His height's hard to pin down. At times, he really doesn't look more than 195 cm, like with Lennox Lewis where they look about the same height and that measured 6'7.75" guy. But most of the time, he can look taller like in the pictures dietmar posted. I think he was measured this at his absolute lowest.
dietmar said on 20/Apr/15
Devin Paul, sorry, but i think nobody takes you seriously after claiming 188cm for Conan. Just to let you know, that's how a 188cm guy ( Andy Richter) looks with Conan.

I would also like to have an explanation to these pics. There are loads of moore, but we can start with these. Barkley with 191cm Gabrielle Reece and 193cm Boris Kodjoe. These pics have been posted earlier, with no response, so he we go again. And dont even try to downgrade Reece or Kodjoe, they are solid 191cm and 193cm.

Like said, there are loads of pics where Barkley constantly edges out 193cm guys with 4-5cm marginal. Conan is not the only one, you know. The only explanation is that Barkley is 197cm. In fact, after studying carefully all the pics posted here, im pretty sure Barkley is a full 198cm. This height was in fact mentioned, when he was drafted in NBA 1984.

Btw, Hardaway is not an inch taller than Barkley. Hardaway has higher eyelevel than Barkley, thats why he looks taller. Barkley has bigger forehead, so they are actually the same height. Or very close to anyway.

Heres another good comparision with 193cm David Hasselhoff, with cowboy boots. He reaches just above Pippens eyebrows, which is 8-9cm difference. Barkley is no moore than 3cm shorter than Pippen there.

So really guys, stop this nonsense with Barkley being only 195cm. In that case around 30-40 people should be downgraded several centimeters. Excuse me Devin Paul, but i cant stop laughing at your 188cm claim for Conan :D
Devin Paul said on 17/Apr/15
Thanks joe 193cm night. With this being said, Barkley definitely is in the 6'4 range. I'd imagine Calais Campbell being listed at 6'8 (at minimum in the 6'7 range as you rarely see a player in any sport listed barefoot) proves this. I don't understand what is so difficult for everyone to believe that Barkley is not 6'6 or close to it. Why would he lie down #1 and if so, others in the NBA would call him on if he were. Not to mention that a handful of us just from this thread have seen him and can easily say 6'4 ish and not any taller!!!!!

Once again, both of you, just scroll down and compare Barkley with several celebs like 191cm Gabrielle Reese, who is 7cm shorter than Sir Charles, or 193cm Boris Kodjoe, who is 4-5cm shorter than Charles, or 195cm Usain Bolt, who is moore than an inch shorter than Charles, ie. the list is endless.

dietmar, that is the dumbest comparison I have seen in my life. You are obviously biased. Conan's head is tilted #1 and 2 Conan is not 6'4 like you claim. I'll give him 6'2 max. Looking at Pippen and Barkley (Pippen is listed as 6'6 1/2 barefoot out of college and 6'7 1/2 in shoes, but I'll call him 6'7 as he may have grown the half inch), it is about the same difference. Take a look at the picture of Barkley and 6'6 penny Hardaway. Height posted it in his 27 Feb 15 post. Now If Penny is 6'6 (which is 100% accurate), Barkley has a difficult time sniffing 6'5. There is at least an inch difference. If you're gonna use evidence, use some that actually is objective and not subjective. Like joe 193 cm night says your pictures favor Barkley and they are all biased.

Its very hard (impossible) to tell if somebodys 1cm taller, or shorter, just by standing close to him. And you keep forgetting if Barkley really is only 195cm, then Conan is no moore than 190-191cm, which is ridiculous, of course. He edges out all 191cm guys. So really, Barkley cant be just 195cm. Its just not possible.

I believe his word as most people lie up not down. Have u seen him with Dan Majerle? Majerle is taller than he is by almost an inch.

Duhon, I have seen him in person at a golf tournament and he isn't downplaying anything. I am officially 6'4 5/8 and I was eye level with him when I saw him. I think what is causing this debate to go on is that most celebs in general lie up about their height. Most either measure in shoes or most just flat out lie. I can't count how many nba players I've seen say they're 6'4 and only come up to my eye brows. Barkley at least is about that without shoes and close to 6'6 (roundable to 6'6) in shoes. I don't understand why people are so surprised about this. 95% of the nba does this. Some more than others

Dave Grohl is 183cm and he doesnt reach Barkleys eyelevel. As we can see, Charles can easily look over Dave, and it cant be done, if your just 12cm taller. It takes at least 14cm. Krist Novoselic (201-203cm) doesnt look much taller than Charles there.

What comes to previous pics with Conan and Charles, dont let Conans hair fool you, try to imagine Conan as bald, and you will see the real, 5cm difference. We can all agree Conan has at least one inch of hair, right? Well, he is still one inch shorter, with his hair. Thats easy math, 1+1 = 2inch.

I think Charles should be 196 cm at the very least, and MJ should be downgraded at 195 cm.
dietmar said on 9/Apr/15
4cm is absolutely minimum difference. That would make Charles 197cm. In my opinion, the difference is closer to 5cm though. Conan is indeed tilting his head abit in the pics, when he stands straith, his eyelevel reaches Barkleys lower nose. Thats 5cm dead on. Both men has big heads, so theres no difference there.
joe 193cm night said on 8/Apr/15

Height said on 7/Apr/15
Looks 4cm taller than Conan, at least.
Duhon said on 7/Apr/15
I truly believe Barkley is one of the few athletes or even men in general who downplays his height. He's always tried to have an under-dog sort of image.
dietmar said on 7/Apr/15
Lol @joe193cm, are you seriously saying theres only one inch difference between Conan and Barkley? Excuse me but your judging of height is terrible. I will give you a hint, if somebodys eye level reaches anothers mouth level, he is 7cm shorter. Compare Conans eye level with Barkleys mouth level and you will see.
joe 193cm night said on 7/Apr/15
4-5 cm you are crazy, the difference is 2-3 cm at most
dietmar said on 4/Apr/15
@173cm, Barkley is closer to the camera there. The difference is not quite that big in real life. But its deninitely moore than just 2cm. In fact, Conan is a good inch shorter than Barkley, even counted with his hair.

As we can all see, Barkley is easily 4-5cm taller than Conan.

Rob,

Barkely has claimed both 6'4 3/4" (195cm) and 6'5 1/2" (197cm). From all the evidence we have seen lately, perhaps he should be taller than MJ by 1cm-1.5cm at least. The question is do you agree to downgrade MJ and upgrade Barkley?
[Editor Rob: Barkley seems insistant on wanting to be 6ft 4.75. I think most would agree that is his lowest measurement.]

Its plain obvious Barkley is taller than 195cm. No question about it. As you can see, "Big Arnie" doesnt even reach Barkleys eyelevel, which means Sir Charles is moore than 12cm taller than Arnie.

If Barkley really is only 195cm, like some "experts" claim, i can make a list of 30-40 celebs, who needs to be downgraded several centimeters. Starting with Rock 191cm -> 188cm, Gabrielle Reese 191cm -> 188cm. Kevin Sorbo 191cm -> 188cm, Usain Bolt 196cm -> 193cm, etc, etc, etc...

Height,

I think Chuck at 6'4 3/4 is feasible (definitely not at 6'6 or 6'5.5, although in shoes he is about that to get rounded to 6'6). His height could be deceptive because he weighed 300 pounds when I saw him too. I may be able to give Pip 6'7 flat because he looked significantly taller than I was (I assumed he was shorter but being a fan of scotties I also know he doesn't stand straight and has a long face, and I also did read where he wanted to be a point guard when he played so he probably didn't want to be listed at 6'8 earlier in his career (even tho I have cards going back that actually had him there before Portland did it late in his career) and definitely not 6'9. Plus I saw an excerpt yesterday where phil claimed Scottie was 6'9 (although he probably embellished that). I will say he looks Phil's height or taller (which is high 6'6 or 6'7 barefoot) compared to guys like Harper MJ Kobe and Dennis. However I saw a pic with he and 6'8 listed Jeff Sanders (don't know how tall sanders is but def at least 6'7) with president Obama and he looked shorter than Sanders but same thing here bad posture. He looks maybe 1/4 taller than Glen Rice too who is about the same as Smitty (I'll call rice 6'6.5 too barefoot). But thinking about it, I don't think he wears a high cut shoe either so what they said about 6'7.5 early in His career may have been in lower cut esp since he didnt want to be considered a big guy and he was thin at 210-212 pounds back then. Also he looks close to charles oakley's height (prob less than an inch diff) and oak was about 6'7.5 barefoot (he was listed 6'8 and 6'9 in his career).
height said on 1/Mar/15
@Arkansauce and @Not Tippin Pippen. I really like the approach you both have.

I think both Scottie and Barkley may be 1/4 of an inch less than I pressumed. I still think from what I've seen over the years that Sir Charles is a little taller than Jordan.

This is a small sample list I have right now:

Charles Barkley: 6'4.75" / 6'5" flat (195 cm/195.5 cm)
Michael Jordan: 6'4.5"/ 6'4.75" (194.3 cm / 195 cm)
Kobe Bryant: 6'4.5"/ 6'4.75" (194.3 cm / 195 cm)
Penny Hardaway: 6'6" flat (198.1 cm)
Scottie Pippen: 6'7.25" (201.3 cm)
Dominique Wilkins: 6'6.5" (199.3 cm)
Dennis Rodman: 6'6.25" (198.8 cm)
Carmelo Anthony: 6'6.25" (198.8 cm)
Lebron James: 6'6.25" / 6'6.5" (198.8 cm / 199.3 cm)
Magic Johnson: 6'7.5" (202 cm)
Karl Malone: 6'8" Flat (203.2 cm)
Hakeem Olajuwon: 6'9.75" (208 cm)
Patrick Ewing: 6'10.5" (209.5 cm)
Larry Bird 6'9.5" (207 cm)
Chris Mullin: 6'5" flat (195.5 cm)
Ron Harper: 6'5" flat / 6'5.25" (195.5 cm / 196.2 cm)
Clyde Drexler: 6'5.5" (196.8 cm)
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: 7'1.87" (218 cm)
Wilt Chamberlain: 7'0.75" / 7'1" flat (215 cm/ 215.9 cm)
Shaquille O'Neal: 6'11.75" / 7'0" flat (212.7 cm / 213 cm)
Larry Johnson: 6'5" flat / 6'5.25" (195.5 cm / 196.2 cm)
Stacey Augmon: 6'6" flat / 6'6.25" (198.1 cm /198.8 cm)
Steve Smith (Smitty): 6'6.5" (199.3 cm)
Brian Shaw: 6'3.25" (191 cm)
Carlos Boozer: 6'6.75" (200 cm)
Klay Thompson: 6'4" flat (193 cm)
Nick Anderson: 6'4.25" (193.6 cm)
Jerry Stackhouse: 6'4" / 6'4.25" (193 cm / 193.6 cm)
Dennis Scott: 6'5.25" / 6'5.5" ( 196 cm/196.8 cm)
Bill Walton: 6'11.75" / 7"0" flat (212.7 cm / 213 cm)

Mark Eaton: 7'4.5" (224.8 cm)

NoTippin Pippen if Pippen is just under 6'7" as you state, that would make MJ under 6'4" (6'3.75" or so). If that's what you call facing the facts, then where's the objetivity there when videos and pictures for years clearly show that Pippen has close to 3 inches on MJ?

NoTippin Pippen said on 27/Feb/15
@JT: think you need to go to the doctor and actually get measured because all of your estimates are way off. You probably are not really 6'4 1/2 as you say. That's usually why the other heights are is inflated because yours is. Kobe is a hair under 6'5 (about 194-195 cm). Number one he admitted it, 2 if u see him next to guys like MJ (jordan admitted he's under 6'5) too you can tell.
NoTippin Pippen said on 27/Feb/15
@JT and Height: I've seen Pip in person before as I live here in Miami where he is part of the year. there is no way he is 6'7.5 barefoot. That is his height in shoes (between 6'7.5-6'7.75). Meaning barefoot he is probably a little under 6'7 or very close to it. I've also seen charles in person and he is about the same as MJ kobe and stackhouse (all listed at 6'6 on paper but rounded up likely from 6'5.5, but are in the mid to high 6'4 range barefoot). Barkley definitely isn't 6'6 even with shoes on. Just face the facts!
height said on 27/Feb/15
@Arkansauce

Pippen has always been 1 inch+ taller than Melo, so him being a 6'7.5" barefoot guy is accurate, he is 6'9" in athletic shoes.

Click Here

You're probably taller than you give yourself credit for, since Charles Barkley is the same height as Ron Harper and Larry Johnson (6'5.5" /197cm). Barkley has always been about half an inch taller than MJ (6'4.75" / 6'4.88").

@height, i have posted the same pic on Magic Johnson topic. I doubt if Pippen really is 202cm barefoot? Maybe he was measured 202cm with shoes on? He definitely looks at least 3cm shorter than Malone in the pics i have seen.

But anyway, this topic is about Charles Barkley, and i think its about time to upgrade him to 197cm. All the evidence is pointing at that direction. It really doesnt make any sense when Gabrielle Reese gets 191cm listing on this site, while Barkley gets only 195cm listing, and we can all see Charles is at least 7-8cm cm taller than Reese.

In this pic Barkley looks (again)taller than Jordan.

Charles Barkley has to be 6'6 at the least. At worst he's 6'5.5. I do see 6'6 exp next to Usain Bolt who he's noticeably taller. Pictures don't lie with the pic just because has of Usain Bolt and Michael looking about the same height, but with Barkley Usain is much shorter.
Andrea said on 13/Feb/15
Well, the fact other people are listed at a certain height on here doesn't mean they're necessarily that height! The fact is that when a celebrity is honest, they always mess up with many listings on here! Why? Because the other people are probably not what they say or what they're listed at! You mentioned The Rock? Of course, The Rock is not 6'3, i think most of the people agree with that on his page but still gets listed at 6'3... Usain Bolt, after seeing him with some people, i think he might be more a solid 6'4 than 6'5! So yeah, in a sense you can't have Charles at only 6'4.75 and other people listed at certain heights! That's what you say? I agree with you... Rob gives big benefits of doubt to some celebrities at times...

Why is everyone trying to upgrade him? He's claimed 6'4.75 twice and that's a very specific height... He must have measured near that!

Because of how he appears next to several other celebrities who's height are featured on this site. He absolutely dwarfs the 6'3" listed Dwayne Johnson. He looks significantly taller next to the 6'5" listed Usain Bolt, these are just a few among others. Regardless of what Charles says he looks like a strong 6'5er" not a weak one. If he were listed at 6'5" here I doubt anybody would try to seriously challenge it.

Barkley 196cm - 197cm max

Compare Barkley with a legit 200cm Clyde Drexler, on the very right. No way there is 5cm difference. Its moore like 3cm. Which means Barkley is 197cm.

dietmar said on 11/Feb/15
Well, Andrea, the problem is that if Barkley really is only 195cm, then we must downgrade a bunch of other celebs. Example, Chris Mullin is only 196cm, Scottie Pippen 199cm, Usain Bolt 193cm, Michael Jordan 193cm, Steven Seagal 191cm, Larry Bird 204cm, etc etc..

Its far moore likely Barkley is 197cm. Then everything matches, and we dont have to downgrade anybody. Im pretty sure Barkley was measured 195cm at some point, otherwise he would'nt claim that height, but we dont know what time of the day he was measured, what instrument was used, maybe he was just wrongly measured? Its possible too, you know. So i would't pay too much tension to that mystigal 195cm claim. Its obviously not his true height.

You can also compare Barkley with 201-202cm Scottie Pippen. Charles is no moore than 4-5cm shorter. Patrick Ewing on the very right is 213cm. So really Rob, Barkley needs an upgrade. Beats me why he dowgrades himself. Maybe he was measured 195cm very late in the evening, after hard training. Who knows. He is indeed 197cm most of the day. Definitely taller than Jordan.

dietmar, I understand your point and is perfectly valid, but I do think we are in a position to doubt that since:

1. MJ himself said he was 6'6" and turns out Barkley is taller than him.
2. MJ has been officially measured at 6'4.75" (195cm) and Barkley is taller than him.

To me is more like:

Jordan 6'4.75" (195cm)
Barkley: 6'5.5" (197cm)
dietmar said on 4/Feb/15
They use many kind of basketball shoes in NBA, some have only 1.5cm, some have up to 5cm heels. So its quite hard to compare players heights on the court. But i agree, Barkley looks taller than Jordan in most pictures, wearing similar shoes. But hey, if Barkley says he is 195cm, then who are we to doubt that? Jordan is probably around 193-194cm. Thats why Barkley appears slightly taller in pics.

Barkley again clearly taller than peak Hogan and 6´4.5"-6´5" Bill Fralic, 6´5.75" John Tenta looks to edge Barkley so 6´5.5" is what Barkley really looks so I guess he was just measured wrong at 6´4.75" one time

What a biased comparison. Hogan was TALLER THAN 6'5" Jake the Snake Roberts, 6'5" Hilbilly Jim and 6'5" Barry Windham in the 1980's. Why do people have difficulty comprehending that?

If Barkley is 6'4.75 then Hogan was struggling with 6'4 in his prime.

You would love that wouldn't you? The fact that according to you, Hogan hasn't lost a mm in his entire life. After all, we all know that Hogan stood next to Barkley in 1980's right? Your agenda is so painfully obvious.

Haven't you folks seen this video? Barkley confirms he is 6'4 and 3/4in. End of.

[Editor Rob: so he's said that number at least twice now.]

Charles Barkley flat out stated he was 6'4 1/2 I think Charles would know his height more than anybody else. Lennox Lewis claims to be 6'4 1/2 and there are pictures on this site with them standing side by side and they are the same height.

@Rob The picture was taken for a celebrity event promoting his new film pain and gain where Barkley and Shaq have a 'Lift off' where Barkely cheats by using fake weights. Link below. So i highly doubt it was after a workout.

Also his co-star in the movie Mark Wahlberg was there. Who is listed a 5'8. To me looks nowhere near a 7 inch difference. 7 inches would mean that the top of marks head would be at around the rocks mouth level right. Of course Mark has the hair advantage but no more than 0.25 of an inch with that style. So conclusion is the rock is shorter than listed height. While i too do find it hard to believe the rock is sub 6'3 there is plenty of evidence to prove otherwise.

Sorry to post this on Barkelys but would be a bit weird to change pages.

I dont think Barkley is quite 2in taller than Conan O'Brien. If you look at the pic below, John Cleese is 2in taller than Ted Danson.

I believe Barkley is same height as Cleese (196cm).

If Barkley is 6'4.75 then Hogan was struggling with 6'4 in his prime.

Barkley was 6'6 and Hogan somewhere around 6'5.
Tom said on 5/Jan/15
Rob how do you explain the difference between Charles and the Rock. Average eye level to top of head on average is about 4.25 inches but being the big man he is id imagine his head would be a little larger than average. For arguments sake say its average. I think if stood up completely straight his eye level would be in line with the top of Dwaynes head. Thus making him 4.25 inches taller therefore the rock would be 6'0.5 at Barkleys height on here. Even if he was 6'6 that would make the rock 6'1.75. He is at the very least 3.5 inches shorter. Either Barkely needs an upgrade or the Rock a downgrade.

[Editor Rob: I believe there could be near 3 inches barefoot between them after the Rock has been doing a workout and hit a lower than usual height.

[Editor Rob: generally he can look 6ft 5 range. He has come out with the 2 heights of 6ft 4.75 and 5.5.

I believe he was measured almost 6ft 5 one point, and he may also have measured 6ft 5.5 aswell.
]

Rob,
don´t you think it would be fair to do a middle way for his listing?

I know all the comparisons made by me, JT and others are not he holy grale, but do you really think peak Hogan had 1.25" on Barkley despite getting the opposite out of the comparisons?

Barkley looks like you said somewhere between 6´5" and 6´5.5" imo
[Editor Rob: a 6ft 5 listing might be more along lines of range he could look.]

Barkley is definitely 6'5. All these claims that he was under 6'4 while in the NBA were made by haters.

5'10 guy because the rock is 6'2.5 at best guy and Barckey is about 6'5 maybe 6'5.5. The rock is a big liar about his height.
Stan said on 15/Dec/14
if barkeley was only a flat 6'5 how could he edge rock by 3 big inch(8cm) and 6'5 vince vaughn only edge out rock by 2inch. weird right guys?
5ft10guy said on 13/Dec/14
can someone explain to me how he dwarfs the rock if hes only an inch and some change taller then him
Lonestar said on 13/Dec/14
If barkley was only 6'4.5 my guess all 6'5 actors should be 6'3-6'4 flat not a tip more
andre said on 12/Dec/14
How can the rock be 6ft3 and this guy towers over him

maby rock is only 6ft or 6ft1
JT said on 11/Dec/14
In addition to Lewis being closer to the camera (head sizes and shoulder levels are giveaways), there’s about a 3 degree tilt in Lewis’s favor going by the stack of plates behind Barkley as well as the angle of the door and ceiling trim behind Lewis Click Here
JT said on 11/Dec/14
Lewis is closer to the camera than Barkley, which is especially apparent looking at the size of their heads.

Barkley would have had a peak Hogan by around an inch Click Here (bottom left photo is them standing in about the same position in the same WCW ring) and be within 4 inches of even Andre, who may be wearing his big orthopedic shoes here as well. Click Here
Vegas said on 9/Dec/14
But with someone like Big Lennox I think he's closer to his claim than this 6ft 6 myth.
_____________________

don't see many arguing 6'6 for barkley, most have him under that. but rob you have hulk hogan at 6'6 peak over an inch taller than barkley. can you honestly say with hand on heart that peak hogan looks over an inch taller than barkley next to the same person in these clips?

Andrea said on 7/Dec/14
Can look? I posted only one picture (maybe the best) but you can find other pics of them together and there's noway Lisa is even a mm over 6'4 if Kobe is a 6'4.75 guy, noway! She also looks noway near 6'5 with Vincent and the 5'11 woman... And look at this: Click Here
Steve Howey is a solid 6'3 guy (6'3-6'3.5) and looks barely shorter than her! Or even 6'2-2.5 range Ashton Kutcher certainly doesn't look 2-3 inches shorter than her! Near 6'4 is certainly more possible! And, getting back to Kobe, what about the other "comparisons"? He looks taller than 6'5 if all the other guys are near their listings! Btw, the link of "Hugh Jackman with Barkley with Cudmore" doesn't work...
Andrea said on 6/Dec/14
Yeah, Rob, but why does he look a solid inch taller than Lisa Leslie, that you have at 6'5? Or at least 4 inches taller than Morgan Freeman? Or a head taller than Neymar? Or at least 3-3.5 inches taller than Michael Phelps? Give an explanation!
[Editor Rob: Leslie can look shorter than kobe in the old link, I didn't see her with charles, but I've seen a little of Lisa and other players and she can look anywhere from 6ft 4 and change up to a full 6ft 5.

But with someone like Big Lennox I think he's closer to his claim than this 6ft 6 myth.

You got a Hugh jackman with Barkley with Cudmore.
