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...Iโ€™ve been measured at 6-5, 6-4 ยพ. 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."

@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
Canson said on 23/Mar/17
@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

@Ice: yes at 6'2.5 I feel short and come on celebheihhts and air my dirty laundry like you do. Go fugoogle your self you troll
RisingForce said on 23/Mar/17
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

Click Here Jin-Woon from former south korea pop group 2AM was listed at 185cm he does make barkley look 6'4.75 if barkley stand straight. Not sure about footwear.
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.

Canson said on 13/Mar/17
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

@Canson youre probably under 6'3

----------

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
@Ice: try 194cm. I'm over 6'4" but you knew that already. Your height is the one that is always changing. Don't get pissed off at me because you're insecure and feel short at whatever height you are.
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
And the inflation continues now he's up to 6'5.33. That's 3/4" or more too high.
Ice said on 4/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 3/Mar/17
@S.J.H: thanks!!! Everything you said is spot on! Refreshing to know someone else understands how the system works as well!
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
Canson said on 1/Mar/17
@Ice: I'm insecure? You're sitting here saying you feel short and wish you were taller at 6'2.5 and it keeps going up. You're a turd and a troll.

And his teammates say he's 6'4" so you're calling them insecure and liars as well huh? GTFOH

Canson said on 26/Feb/17
@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
@sanky look my mugshot in the page of Rob Paul. If the camera is not taller than your eyes you look 1 inch taller in a mugshot.
RisingForce said on 25/Feb/17
Looks at least the 6'5.5" he once claimed or even 6'6". This is an instance where I think he downplays his height a lot.
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Arby: finally someone with sense. My solid 6'3" friend said he wasn't "noticeably" taller than I am and I come down on a normal day to 193.9
S.J.H said on 24/Feb/17
@Arby

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

On his mugshots he is 6'7" or 6'8" how do you guys explain that ? I think he downgrads himself, don't know why but he does just like Kobe who claims barely 6'4" while he is clearly taller than 6'5" measured Cam newton or 6'4" Conan O'Brien

@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

@Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25)

In fact it look more like:

Barkley 195cm
Kobe 195cm
Jordan 195cm
Manganiello 193.5cm (high chance at least 1.5cm shorter than 3 195er)
Conan 191cm (looking dead on 4cm shorter than kobe and barkley)

@Canson

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
berta said on 20/Jan/17
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

@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

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.

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.

"[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."


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.

Heights have become so confusing because "the lie has now become the truth" Common knowledge for years is that Hulk Hogan is 6'6 MJ is 6'6 Charles Barkley is 6'6 and Dennis rodman who is actually really 6'6 can't be because he is 2inches taller than MJ or CB .

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.
Canson said on 11/Aug/16
@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.

He is around 2" taller than Jordan here standing side by side in equal footwear.

@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 โ€” 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 โ€“ that being said โ€“ 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

@Canson

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.

@Canson

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 :

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
Canson said on 9/Jul/16
@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.
Canson said on 8/Jul/16
@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.
Shane said on 8/Jul/16
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.

@Canson

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
Canson said on 5/Jul/16
@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: stern has always said he was 6'5. Sure he could've been 6'5.25 or so like Rob has him at his lowest but doubt he was any taller than that. People below who have met him (with the exception of Goose who notoriously has added 2" to every celebs heights including the shorter ones) has said Stern is 6'5. I would bet my life savings Barkley is not 6'5.5 I take the word of guys who have played with him that say he's 6'4 or "not even 6'5". Doubt he's 193 cm guy but he's between 194-195 maybe 195 flat.

@Height: I've always heard Mason was 6'6. I can't find any link that says he's 6'6.5. But maybe he was since he was listed 6'8 Later in his career. Oakley I agree he isn't a 6'6.75 guy but an article when he was in Chicago did say that (not making it up). But I'd say he's 6'7 ranfe. He isn't 6" taller than John Starks and Ewing has a few inches on him. I'd say 6'7.5 for him

Canson said on 4/Jul/16
@Rob: do you think he wakes to 198 (I saw your reply to Height below in regards to losing 3 cm)? He doesn't look that tall at least in my opinion. I'd have said 196.5/193.5 if he really loses 3 cm at most maybe 197/194. At 198 out of bed, He'd be as tall as Klitschko at the size or Dr J (his former teammate) who was taller than he is and has said as such before. He looks shorter to me esp compared to other basketball players who I know how tall they actually are like Karl Malone etc. not to mention he is always classed 6'4 or under 6'5 by all of his former teammates. Do you think that he looks taller because he loses so much per day?
Editor Rob: you might find some guys who lose 3cm...he may well have a 6ft 6 to 6ft 4.75 range, it is a lot, but then these guys are 9 inches above average.

I think most agree he typically looked taller than his lowest claim or the supposed measurement.

Howard Stern is taller than Barkley Jordan or Kobe and he is a solid 6'5 himself. Enough people have seen Stern in person to say 6'5. Enough have seen the other three 6'4.5-.75

Stern WAS closer to 6'6" than 6'5". Due to age and terrible posture he has lost height in the last decade. Furthermore, are there ANY pics of videos of Howard standing next to Charles? NO, there isn't.

@Canson

Thanks for the info and the links, I have read them before but it's always good to have them. Chambers is close enough to 6'10" trust me and Majerle is more a 6'5.5"guy than a 6'5" guy.

Your guess for Charles Oakley is inaccurate. Oakley is no 6'7" nor 6'6.75", he is a legit 6'8" guy (most probably at about 6'8.25 - 6'8.30" or 204 cm) look at him next to Anthony Mason who was 6'6.5" or next to the likes of Allan Houston (6'4.76" edges him by about 10 cm).
Canson said on 2/Jul/16
@Height: not sure on Ceballos. He was listed 6'6 when he first came in. If I had to guess 6'5 1/2 like Majerle maybe a full 6'6 but they look close. Dumas was listed 6'6" though barefoot when he was drafted.
Height said on 2/Jul/16
@Canson have to agree to disagree on many of the thing you have said. Ceballos was always a legit 6'6" (same height as Penny Hardaway) and Richard Dumas is in the 6'6.5" department. Ainge looks taller than a flat 6'4".
Canson said on 1/Jul/16
@Height: not the greatest pic here but if chambers is 6'10 it'd mean Majerle is 6'7 almost and that Oliver Miller is 6'8-6'9. Miller is 6'7.5 (as measured). Majerle is 6'5 and change 6'5 3/8-6'5.5 (although the Olympics had him 6'5 in 88) but he claims 6'6. Not sure if he rounds up or he counts his shoes. He looks like you said at least close to 6'5.5 to me as well. Mark west is 6'10 barefoot and has chambers by an inch. But A pic like that isn't always the best to judge people because if the camera is angled one way or another it can make one appear shorter or taller. So maybe chambers really is 6'9.5 as opposed to 6'9. I'll be honest too. I posted a pic earlier with Xman and chambers with dale Ellis. Not sure if Rob posted that thread but I thought 3" at first it could be 3.5 between X and Chambers. It isn't a full 4 because the crown on X's head is over chambers eyebrows. I know at one point Xman claimed 6'6 as his height and he looked it with Jordan. But with Charles Oakley and Ewing he looked shorter than that at least to me. I saw one link saying Oakley was a short as 6'6 3/4 barefoot or 6'6.5 one of the two. when he was at VUU he was listed 6'8 likely a shoe height so I deduce 6'7 from that but no higher
Canson said on 1/Jul/16
@Height: look at Tom Chambers with 6'6 Xavier McDaniel (out of McDaniel's own mouth about his own height). Chambers does not have a full 4" on him and doesn't have a full 3 on Dale Ellis. Ellis is listed 6'7 and looks somewhere between 6'6-6'7 if X is truly a full 6'6.

@Height: Wilkes may have been 6'6" in his prime. I was saying at worst he was 6'5.5. Even guys who were 1/2" off their listed were sometimes rounded up. To me he only looked 1/2" taller than Coop who was 6'5. And Magic looked like he had more than an inch on him. Looked 1.5-2" at times. Tom Chambers was only 6'9 when he came out of college. Maybe 6'9.5 and was rounded up. I don't see an official measurement saying he was 6'10 other than his listed height.

Wilkes is legit 6'6" (see him next to Magic or Phil Jackson), and Chambers always has been a legit 6'10"guy (See him next to legit 6'9"guys like Sam Perkins), Pique was measured with a stadiometer barefoot like all medicals in football.

But back then people didn't do a lot of rounding esp taller guys. 6'4 1/2 even 6'4 5/8 if barely that when measured was 6'4 to some. But I don't see him below 6'4 1/2

He was likely measured in shoes as well.

Wilkes I can see a barefoot height at worst 6'5.5 but he was from the 70s where they did it barefoot. But Tom Chambers was 6'9 barefoot. Not 6'10

@Height: I can see Ainge at most being as tall as Tom Brady who is 6'4.25. Ainge really doesn't look that tall TBH. I could even see 6'4 would be his 2 hr out of bed and he can see 6'3.75. He never looked a strong 6'4 to me but not a weak one. More borderline solid. Barkley from what Ainge said is 0.5" taller and you're right )I posted below) Ainge has said exact same height "about 6'4 1/2" and also the time when Barkley had the interview in Phoenix when Ainge walked in and said "Charles I'm 6'4 and you aren't much taller than me." Ainge said he may be taller but it's at most 1/2". Ainge was listed both 6'4 and 6'5 when he played. Knowing they measure in shoes I can see at most 193. I met Dell Curry once and he is firmly 192. I had about an inch on him. I see Ainge and curry as similar with Ainge maybe having 1/4"-3/8"
Height said on 29/Jun/16
@Canson

There has been 2 other times where Ainge has claimed taller heights. One was and interview where he claimed that he was 6'4.5" and that Barkley was about 0.5" taller and the other was one where he claimed that the where the same height at 6'4.5".

Click Here

Barkley always looked at least 1.5 cm taller than Ainge, the original statement I am referring to along with yours of a 0.5" difference between them, is more accurate than the one of them being the same. Ainge has always looked more than a flat 6'4", so the 6'4.5" sounds legit.

Ainge is more a 194er (perhaps more on the lower end of 194) and Barkley is more a 196er (perhaps more on the lower end of 196).

danny ainge charles barkley: type this in Google and go to images. Ainge called it right during the interview that he walked in on when Barkley was asked how tall he was and said he was 6'6". Ainge challenged him and said "I'm 6'4 and you're only about 1/2" taller. That makes him 6'4.5 at most he'd be what Rob has him at 6'4 3/4. Which makes since depending on when he would've measured at the Olympics as well
Canson said on 28/Jun/16
@Height: I agree partly but think some of the fooling around really is some isn't. He's inconsistent because he claimed a shoe height. When he was drafted in the 80s the sneakers weren't like today. I read an article where Al Domenico and Pat Croce (then a Sixers trainer later an owner) both said "no way he's 6'6". Croce had him at 6'5 1/2 in shoes which is what Barkley referred to. Which makes sense. 6'4.75 barefoot in a lower sneaker 3/4" would put him there

Height said on 27/Jun/16
@Canson

I can relate to what you are saying, I have the same opinion about the pictures and can only speak of what I've seen through the years in games I've watched or tv segments I've watched.

Although Ainge comes from the "with shoes" era, in that time some listed heights were real heights (thinking Bird, Wilkes, Chambers, Nealy ) and players that came from international leagues (i.e. Petrovic) and other sports leagues that measured without shoes remained listed like that. Ainge was officially listed at 6'4.5" by the MLB and then for practical reasons was either listed at 6'4" or 6'5" in Baseball/Basketball TV transmissions. That's why I believed he was virtually a 195.5 cm - 196 cm guy because he never looked flat 6'4"....either way, 195cm is not even 6'5" flat (195.6 cm is).

Ainge has also said that he is 6'4.5" for the record on many interviews, so I think the 194 cm range is more appropriate for him since sometimes he can give the impression of being 195 cm too.

MJ (and Kobe for that matter who is virtually the same height, with the same body type) can edge legit 192cm guys by more than 3 cm. MJ being as low as 194 cm or even 194.5 cm doesn't make sense, especially if you see him next to 197 cm to 199 cm guys.

Barkley seemed to edge legit 192 cm Gerard Piquรฉ by no less than 5cm : Click Here

These seem more realistic:

Ainge 194.5 cm
Jordan 195.5 cm
Barkley 196.5 cm
Majerle 197 cm
Canson said on 27/Jun/16
@Height: the problem with some of this is that some of these guys such as Ainge have said he's only 6'4. He never really looks 6'5 with anyone else and if he were a legit 195 he'd be listed 6'6". By the time he was drafted they were into shoe heights. Majerle calls himself 6'6 but I agree 6'5.5 looks right. So if Ainge says he's 6'4 I highly doubt he's 6'5 esp with known inflation of height in the NBA and shoes etc. But the common denominator is that both say Barkley is shorter than Majerle (per Majerle) and only about 1/2" or so taller than a 6'4 Ainge (per Ainge). The biggest problem is there are no good pics with Majerle and Barkley where they are side by side. There is one with Ainge and Ainge is correct he doesn't even have a full inch on him. I could buy 6'4 for Ainge (193). I don't see him being as tall as MJ. He's shorter. By a cm maybe 1/2". and 194.6-195 for Barkley (6'4.6-.7). Majerle is more like 196.75-197.
Height said on 26/Jun/16
@Frank he said it in 2001 too: Click Here

There are many discrepancies in the heights he has claimed during his career/life. He has claimed 6'4", 6'4.5", 6'4.75", 6'5" and 6'5.5"

My guess is that he has always enjoyed fooling around with people with his height and that he is actually not that short
Canson said on 26/Jun/16
@height: I'd give Kobe and MJ 194.5 6'4.5 and Ainge 193. Maybe 6'4.25 but he never looks that tall IMHO. Majerle said Barkley is maybe 6'5 and Ainge says he's 6'4.5. The thing is the pics aren't really with Majerle and Barkley. As for rivers his son is clarkson's height. Without a doubt a morning measurement so I'd call him 6'2.75 and doc rivers maybe 6'3.25
Height said on 25/Jun/16
@Canson

That picture isn't that good to compare. I think the video clearly shows that Ainge is virtually MJ's height, maybe 1cm shorter at most. Barkley seems to edge Ainge by at least 0.5".

Doc Rivers is very close to a legit 6'4" he's between 192 cm -193cm, he's half an inch taller than his son who is 6'3.4"-6'3.5".

I don't agree that neither MJ or Kobe below 195cm or 195.5 cm. You can even see it when Kobe has met Kaka (a legit 186cm) that he is like 10 cm taller than him, you can see that Kobe is a legit about 3cm-4cm shorter next to Nihad Djedovic who is a legit 199 cm.

Kobe and MJ are virtually the same height. So none of them I think is below 195.5cm or 195cm.

Majerle is indeed about 6'5.5" and he is very similar in height to Barkley, he doesn't have an inch or .075"on him.

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.

@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

@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

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:

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

Looks in the 6'5-6'5.5 (196 cm-197cm) range next to 6'4.5 (194 cm) Danny Ainge.
Lord Beerus said on 25/May/16
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.

From left to right, next to two measured players

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.
GMAN said on 21/May/16
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.
Canson said on 29/Apr/16
@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.
dempo said on 28/Apr/16
Please someone tell how does a a measured 6-5 1/2 player appears to be the same height as a 6-4 3/4 one when they embrace...

Crane said on 24/Apr/16
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
Ervis said on 14/Apr/16
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.
abcd said on 12/Apr/16
maybe 197 but no more
5ft10guy said on 7/Apr/16
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
mrtguy said on 4/Apr/16
Probably 6'5.5'' out of bed

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

Should be upgraded, he's taller than most people think. He's about half an inch shorter than Anfernee Hardaway.

196cm at his very least and he's a good 197cm/198cm during the morning!
Johno said on 12/Feb/16
Jordan is taller then Barkley.
five-elevener said on 11/Feb/16
I've seen him all his career and he was a little under 6-7 in shoes, so that would make him around 6-5 & 1/2

6'5 is possibleClick Here

@Danimal176
The only way Barkley's gonna measure 6'5.5", is if he gets measured with shoes on.
Danimal176 said on 7/Feb/16
6'5.5"
Stewart said on 4/Feb/16
"I claimed to be 6-6 when I played, but I'm only 6-5 1/2."

He is obviously taller than 6'4.75" and taller than Jordan (6'4.88")

Click Here

My guess is that his absolute minimum should be 6'5".
Canson said on 3/Feb/16
@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.
Johno said on 3/Feb/16
I think a 6'4.75 estimate would be best.
Ice said on 3/Feb/16
194-195 is the height range were you start to look really big IMO
