@Christian: the other piece of it is what Bobby3342 mentioned below. Bobby met Ray Allen (played ball with him before) and pegged him 192/193. KROC a former poster here also pegged Ray as "about" 6'4. My thinking is he's a bit under 6'4" and if you see the pic I posted with Rashard Lewis ray looked under 6'4. Now the difference with ray and Wade I can't see as easily but I can only say that Wade is shorter of the two. How much tho not sure. At best tho wade is a solid 6'3 from the looks
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
@Christian: my theory is that was in shoes. That's just me because he doesn't look that tall next to a guy like Barkley Kobe or Jordan. Maybe he's a full 6'3 and what you said 6'3.75/6'3". The thing that gets me with his measurement is I've met Kirk Hinrich and TJ Ford and Melo and Keith Bogans (played against) and all but maybe Ford (looked more 5'10) look their draft listed heights from the same class as wade. Hinrich looked 6'2" range so maybe he's 6'2.5 whereas melo looked strong 6'6" like 198.5 ish maybe and bogans is from VA like me and my age. He's a good 6'4" 193-194 or maybe even as tall as me. I maybe was at most about a cm taller if even that much. Wade to me looks about 190cm next to others

Out of bed 191-192
Before bed 189-190

-----

If he's 191-192 out of bed, how in the world was he measured 6ft3.75 (192.4) barefoot? Even if he was measured early morning, it shouldn't put him under 190.4 before bed if we're going by your theory of 2cm height loss.

My guess
192-193 out of bed
190-191 before bed
Canson said on 20/Apr/17
@SJH: min or max? I can agree he's prob not over maybe 190cm but even 6'2.5 is possible for him at his lowest because he doesn't even look a proper 6'3 imho in most cases. Then again he does wear flats sometimes. I can say for sure he isn't over 6'3" flat tho
S.J.H said on 20/Apr/17
Wade is min 6'2.5 that would put many players down as well

Canson said on 11/Mar/17
@S.J.H: you may be right. One guy here says he met him and that in Jordan's Wade is maybe an inch taller. I reckon it's more than a solid inch and closer to 2" or the guy analyzing is a stronger 6'1" as Wade isn't as low as solid 6'2". I agree with KROC (6'5-6'5.25) that when he said he's lucky if he's 6'3". I don't ever use the word lucky with height in general as it is insinuating that a height is superior to another but I gather it in a better saying if he's at most 6'3" more likely a weak 6'3". Either way in his prime as 6'2" range he's still one of the best to lace them up is the best way to sum it up. I don't correlate height with Skill

@Joe: I don't see how tall he is there truthfully. A pic can make someone else taller or shorter. I have a pic with a 6'3" friend where we are standing at a bar right next to each other and he appears taller than me when in reality I'm 1.25-1.4" taller
joe### said on 10/Mar/17
Sorry guys but wade is over 6´3 with reeve carney here on site he looked 5'11.75-6´0 with Rob
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@S.J.H: that was what I saw somewhere on the net thin soles footwear he was measured in. I don't honk he's a flat 6'2" but maybe a weak 190cm. I believe he's near 6'3" but not near 6'4. Otis Smith the Magic GM commented and said he's 6'4" on a good day that's not something used to describe a guy at 6'2.75. My buddy who met him is 6'2 barefoot and said Wade didn't even look an inch taller and he is around the players often (was) as a scout. And yea he looks a full 4" lower than Lebron and about the same difference with Barkley as with Jordan if standing straight
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@i agree S.J.H. I think he's 190cm tops. Looks weak 6'3". Barkley had him by about 2" in the commercials.
S.J.H said on 8/Mar/17
@Canson

Honestly sometimes dwyane wade can look as low as 6'2 when he having loose posture that i could understand older post why some people keep saying he is 6'2-6'2.5 but i do believe he is 6'2.75 after i see Wade side by side comparison with 6'4.5 mj and looking as much as 2" lower than kobe bryant from team usa line up photo although some people keep posting misleading picture of kobe look an inch over wade or those funny bad angle but the truth wade is max 6'3 and lowest 6'2.5 i would rule out 189.5cm lowest since he always look 4" shorter than lebron while i still wandering wade wear his thin sole footwear for draft measurement to reach up 6'3.75

Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: what do you think for Wade? I even asked a friend who has met him and he said the same as KROC that he's at most a full 6'3. Maybe 6'2.75 barefoot.
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: maybe that or maybe a full 6'8". I know I'm the NBA and I've confirmed now that they judiciously throw the .75 on and also they measure shoes and move into the other column for some at least but not all. Parsons is hard to pinpoint. Howard is likely a fraction above 6'9 or that's his lowest imho if he dips that low. He looked taller than Rashard Lewis who is 6'8.5 (listed at least). Meaning Howard may be 6'9.25-.5. I say that because he looks taller than Durant at times and nearly as tall as Bosh maybe 2cm lower. Parsons could even be 6'8.25 at his lowest if he measured. 6'8.75 but agree Harden is more 6'3.25. I know when he was at Arizona state he had Herb Sendeck and he didn't mess around with height the way others have inflating people so my guess is that even if harden measured early he'd still have been 6'3.5 in the morning. He looks about an inch shorter maybe 1-1.5" lower than Barkley does so I'd guess 6'3.25 for him
S.J.H said on 6/Mar/17
@Canson

Atually i think parsons may even be just 6'7.75 and that picture with slouch he even look shorter than 6'7-6'7.5 kevin love and 6'9 dwight howard always look 3-4cm taller than parsons. Lin more i see him a solid 187cm 6'1-3/4 and may easily hit 6'2-6'2.25 morning and blackie chen is probably strong 186cm so 6'1.5 and Lin would be 1/4 taller although some picture they're same height
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@S.J.H: actually looking at pics maybe 6'8 for Parsons and I can see how Lin can look sub 6'2" he does in the pic there and he does with Kobe at times now I'm confused lol. Good observations tho!!!
Canson said on 2/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I agree with some of what you said. But Howard is very surely at least flat 6'9" barefoot. Maybe he got morning before but I can believe he is now at his low. He edges Durant sometimes and sometimes they're the same. But I agree on Wall because my 6'3" friend met him and said he was 1-1.5" taller. But I believe Lin is 6'2 bare minimum maybe 6'2.5. Rob may have underlosted him a tad. Ernie Johnson says he is 6'1" but I can agree maybe 6'0 but he'd be a strong 6'0 to weak 6'1" more likely. Parsons I would say is 6'8" range maybe not as high as 6'8.75 but 6'8-6'8.5 fits he's at least strong 6'8 he's around 1" shorter than Howard. Maybe less. Howard however looks 6'9 flat minimum next to Harden. I'd give harden more a strong 6'3 (6'3.25 or 6'3.5), than 6'4 (that's def a morning measurement possibly a bust a gut, hair, or rounded up from 6'3 7/8). Yao I believe you on and I would say he loses a lot throughout the day. I'd have prob said he's 7'4" range but with his large forehead tough to tell.

Canson said on 19/Jan/17
@Anon: I agree that's arguable as well. All I can say is he isn't 192 at his lowest for sure especially not next to Chad Ochocinco or Ray Allen. Allen is only 192/193 barefoot next to rashard Lewis and from a poster below bobby3342 who is a strong 6'4" himself and that edged him in height

You're correct in your assessment based on the pic you posted where Howard is clearly leaning. It's very obvious he is. However, Lewis was measured 6'8.5 Howard 6'9. That can't be changed unless we were to say that Howard is under 6'8.5 which he isn't. I actually would have an easier time believing Howard is more than 6'9 like 6'9.5 than Lewis being taller than Howard. Howard looks strong 6'9 most of the time. By the way if you look at all other pics Howard is more than clearly taller than Lewis. This pic below is a better one where the difference is 1/2-1" and Howard is taller.

@Bobby: your assessment for Allen looks right to me. Rashard Lewis measured 6'8.5 and that's more than 3.5-4" difference. Looks more like 4.5-5". Putting Ray "near 6'4" 6'3.75 more likely. Lewis is clearly shorter than Dwight Howard in pics who is 6'9 so I agree

Canson said on 23/Nov/16
@Bobby: well said. I misconstrued that you had met Wade in a previous post. But KROC has met both Wade and Ray Allen and said the exact same thing about Ray that you did (about 6'4 is what he said) so my guess is 6'3.5-6'4 range and he said about Wade "lucky if he's 6'3", 6'2.5-.75 is what he gave him. I agree with your estimates for both. And when Lebron, his best friend, says he's at most 6'3 it adds up. In game Wade doesn't look much taller than Russell Westbrook and isn't at tall as James Harden either. But sadly some people here on this site have their minds made up when it's someone they idolize that they have to be a certain height to still be as good as they are. I'm not like that and neither are you. Michael Jordan is my favorite player and athlete of all time and I am one of the biggest fans yet very willing to admit he isn't 6'6. Not 6'5 either. He's a weak 6'5 barefoot like you've said and probably has a low height each day of 6'4.5, maybe edging both of us out by .3cm which is underestimated and very tall as it means the person has been near 6'5 the majority of the day
GP said on 22/Nov/16
@Bobby, I hear what you're saying about people claiming height in shoes and I agree with that. I live in U.S. where majority claim height in shoes. I used to live in Europe and there, it's not that bad. Here is the issue though with what you're saying. Wade's height is an official measured height and he looks that almost all the time. Now regarding Ray Allen and that Olympic measurement story, that's false because first, it's not official and second it appears that they took everyone who was on that 2000 team and most likely some reporter made up some story and people believed it. Look at Ray's height with Kobe(6'4.75"), Rondo (legit 6'1") and even watch He Got Game with Denzel and you will see he towers over Denzel. There is even a scene with Rick Fox in it, where Fox is only an inch or slightly more taller than him. The lowest Ray can be is 6'4.5", but I bet he is exactly 195cm and in every photo with Wade he is only an inch taller.
Canson said on 22/Nov/16
SJH: I never heard Lebron say he's 6'6 only 6'7 and 6'8 that he called himself. I agree tho Wade prob isn't flat 6'2 but 6''2.5-.75 lebron weak 6'7. Rock Im sure is 6'2 tops
Canson said on 22/Nov/16
Thanks Bobby! Everything you said is 100% true. I apologize for saying you met him. I thought you had from another lost and misunderstood. But KROC has met both and described Wade weak 6'3 and Ray "about 6'4". So it adds up. Ray looks 2-3cm less than Kobe. With this site, anytime you challenge how tall someone is the response to you me KROC Alex or others is you downgrade everyone yer there are several people who upgrade everyone they comment on and it's never said. I don't get why really when we are commenting on someone who we prob don't know
BOBBYH3342 said on 19/Nov/16
GP, I KNOW THIS MAY SEEM HARD TO BELIEVE BUT 75 PERCENT OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD CLAIM SHOE HEIGHTS, THATS WHY CANSON(AND MYSELF) DOWNGRADE ALOT OF PEOPLE. SAY YOU HAVE 15 6 3 GUYS IN A ROOM ALL CLAIMING 6'5 AND 1 LEGIT 6'5 GUY CLAIMNG 6'5. THAT GUY WILL BE TOLD HE IS 6'7 AND SINCE THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE AGREE THAT HE IS 6'7 HE MUST BE RIGHT? PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CLAIMING SHOE HEIGHTS FOR SO LONG THAT IT CONFUSES PEOPLE WHEN SOMEONE ACTUALLY TELLS THE TRUTH. AND BACK TO DWAYNE WADES HEIGHT, JUST LOOK AT HIM AND RAY ALLEN THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CLOSE TO THE SAME BAREFOOT HEIGHT WADE 6 3.75(PREDRAFT) AND ALLEN 6 3.5 (OLYMPIC MEASUREMENT)YET ALLEN IS TALLER . NOW IVE NEVER MET WADE BUT I HAVE BALLED WITH RAY AND HE IS A SOLID 192 193 BAREFOOT

GP said on 6/Oct/16
Hey Canson, clearly you are very immature. And I thought I asked you not to mention my name in your posts. Like I said in my previous post, you can believe whatever makes you happy. Clearly you like to downgrade people to make them shorter (which you have been doing on several pages) than you are so you can feel powerful about yourself or get an illusional boost from your ego. So please keep your opinions to yourself and don't make up stories about people, including me when you have no idea who I am or what I do. If you choose not to believe, then stick to evidence and height matters rather than making personal and disrespectful comments.

By the way the average user on this page clearly agrees with the listing.

Rob, can you please remind this young poster that this is a height discussion page not a trolling site. This is not a page for making allegations about other posters or accusing them of lying without any validity unless the rules have changed since I have been posting here from 05'.

So GP how did the food taste at the repast after his cousin's funeral? Because that's where he was when you "claimed to have met him". His slain cousin from Chicago's funeral. If you are going to argue then argue, but don't make up fabricated stories of you "conveniently" meeting him when you know you didn't or get upset with someone because they don't see it your way. Don't see why it matters how tall he is to you and why you care if someone says he's under 6'4. What do you have a crush on him? You've had that tone with more than one person on this page (I'm not by the way the only one who said he doesn't look 6'3+) take a look. This is about opinions. You have yourself and so does everyone else.
S.J.H said on 20/Sep/16
@canson,

Atually i have met john wall in person couple of years ago he look nothing over 6'2 flat more like 6'1.75 but the combine draft stated 6'2.75 w/o shoe its kinda weir if he lost an inch a day from the morning seriously doubt the barefoot height might be a shoe with no insole flat 0.6-0.8" shoe and with thick socks and shoes with insole 1.3-1.5 different that explain dwyane wade look at most 6'3.25 and most of time doesn't look over 190cm

Hey Canson, you can believe whatever makes you happy, but if you wanna come down to California, I will gladly show you the photo. Clearly you sound like a little kid who just goes on some chat sites and reads something that fits within your view, so that must be true. Smart guy, if he is only 6'3" then every player should be an inch shorter than their measured heights? It's funny that he was measured at 6'3.75" and you keep claiming that he was measured wrong in order to insist that you are correct with your made up theory. Since you're the one who is questioning the only fact in this situation, you're required to provide evidence why your theory is true, otherwise don't question anyone else. And regarding the JOKE about him being 6'1", did you also read in there that Coach Spo said that Wade was 6'4"? I'm pretty sure that someone who has been with Wade everyday in the gym since Wade went pro would know better than some kid that has nothing better to do than just make up stories. Unless you have any proof that Wade is lower than 192cm or 6'3.5", then please don't address anything to me. I'm done with your ignorance.

Canson said on 1/Sep/16
@Christian: I doubt he's under but I'd say exact at 6'3. Rob used his pre draft measurement like he did for most of the NBA players. Lebron we see may be under 6'7 by a hair even said Wade is at most 6'3.
GP said on 1/Sep/16
I finally met him and he looked 6'4". Anything below 6'3.5" for him is foolish. I can't believe that people here are still downgrading him, just because during televised games, he can look shorter? Or even spreading fabricated stories that his measurement was in shoes and they made a mistake? You guys make me laugh, lol.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 1/Sep/16
I still have a difficult time seeing Wade being under 6ft3. Rob is an expert on gussing heights, and even he lists Wade at almost 6ft4.
Canson said on 28/Aug/16
@S.J.H: I wonder if that was a shoe measurement (rumor has it). The other guys in his class look that I've met look their draft heights like Melo, Bogans, Hinrich (give or take) and TJ Ford (give or take). Whereas Wade on the court doesn't look over 6'3 flat and the posters here who have met him say he's more 6'2.5-.75.
S.J.H said on 22/Aug/16
Wade is 6'3.25 and the time he could be 6'3.75 only in the morning measured with thick socks. Fact some people did not find out that kobe edge out wade by 1.5" not 1'0
The Man said on 8/Aug/16
Should have been listed as 6'5" by NBA. Most 6'5" listed players are around Dwayne's height.
Canson said on 3/Aug/16
@GP: a lot of my reasoning also has to do with how he looks next to Caron Butler in pics, who I have actually met and is a legit 196cm guy (looked around that in person) Caron has 2" on him. Also with other teammates previously like Eddie Jones (who I haven't met) but appears around 195cm looking at him. You make good points and use logic but lot of the problem is that when someone is saying someone isn't as tall as advertised it's always poor pics etc that are being used. That's site wide too
Canson said on 2/Aug/16
@GP: it isn't bias but I didn't notice the boot. So that does make a difference. Initially I was going off what I have heard from others about Wade's height (who have met him) and the conclusion I've come to on it. Our opinions on it obviously differ
GP said on 29/Jul/16
@Canson. You just proved that you're bias and for that reason you're theory is not valid one more time. The Jordan photo, you didn't do the proper research that I was saying one should do. In those AJ 10 press conference, Jordan is wearing what looks like to be boots, when Wade is wearing flats. I'm pretty sure since you have time to type this often, you can search for that also. The Haslem photo is very bad for judging heights. As you can see Wade is bending his knee with loose back and dropping his posture, when Haslem has lot better stance. So again please don't post things that only proof your theory because in reality it actually shows your bias.

@GP: what you said is correct. And Shane just said the same that you lose it in the first hour in his post. Nobody is arguing with you. However your comment that he "measured it" Is an assumption. They listed that for him as they have listed it for everyone else. Some are legitimately listed with their barefoot heights others are not. I know a scout who has told me that what Shane mentioned below does in fact happen (shoe measurement moved over to barefoot). So when Shane and I mention that it's more that Wade doesn't look that height and never has.

I am also going off two other people who are here on this site who've met him. One said himself he's under 6'3 (this guy is 6'5), and others who have seen him all over the net and said he's under 6'3 possibly. I mean Lebron and Haslem have all said he's at most 6'3 and Spoelstra said "he's 6'4" on a good day. That's not a connotation used for someone 6'3.75. It's someone smaller usually nowhere near 6'4".
Canson said on 25/Jul/16
Shane: you're spot on with that estimate. I lose the same my first hr between 1/4-3/8" after the first hr then another 3/8-.5 total and usually am at 3/4"-2 full cm for the day on a normal day. Your prob similar at 6'2

@Shane, I know that you measure taller in the morning or after nap. I have been regular on this site since 05'. You guys act that the players wake up and get measured within 15 minutes. Lot of the times the height measurement isn't the first test. They change it up every year the order of measurements. You lose most of your height in the 1st hour from waking, then it's more of a gradual loss. In the players' cases, the player could perform the vertical jump first, then another test. By the time they get their height measured could be couple hours and there are 50-60 players that go throw the pre draft measurements.
So for everyone here, I would suggest to first do your research, then take everything into consideration before you write stuff as it is a fact. In this case, the only fact we know of is that Wade was measured at 6'3.75" without shoes and 6'4.75" with shoes.
Shane said on 24/Jul/16
@GP: Canson's early morning measurement comments are not theory they are fact and ones you can check for yourself. Anyone who measures early in the am or even in afternoon after a nap will measure 1/2 inch minimum to over an inch taller in some cases compared to what theyd measure at night after a busy day. With these guys getting measured very early in the day, its a good bet they had lost at most 1/4 to 1/3 of an inch leaving most of the guys room to lose another 1/3 of an inch for short guys around or under 6' to up to 3/4 of another inch through the day for guys over 6'8" or 6'9" or so.
Canson said on 22/Jul/16
No GP the two people here on Celebheights who have seen them are 6'4.5 (Bobby3342) and KROC (6'5). KROC on more than one occasion. They actually said he's under 6'3. Now 6'2.5 and 6'3 is hard to tell but the diff between 6'2 and 6'4 or 6'3 and 6'4 isn't hard to tell. I think at 6'4-6'5 you can tell if someone is 2" taller or shorter not to mention with Wade having relatively good posture. And by the way. It isn't a fantasy if his own teammates say it. So in your case you are entitled to your beliefs but truth is neither of us have met him
Canson said on 22/Jul/16
@GP: it isn't naive. KROC at 6'5 has said it himself in previous posts having met him numerous times. Bobby3342 has said the same he's the same height as I am. Also have seen people on Reddit that have seen him and said he's 6'2 range and these people are 6'2. I haven't seen anyone who has met him say he's 6'4. Lebron and Haslem have both said at most 6'3 for him. The pre drafts are not always correct. Sometimes shoe heights get moved over. Happened with Shaq and Vince Carter and others. Now Wade a solid 6'3 that I can see but him at almost 6'4 barefoot I can't. And no early measurements what I'm implying is that that isn't their lowest. If you have seen the time of tweets etc you can tell. And by the way they "switched to all morning" in 2009 when Steph Curry and Blake griffin were drafted. So basically a Steph curry maybe 6'2.25 out of bed 6'1.5 afternoon meaning he'd lost a 1/4" when he was measured. My opinion for Wade is that it isn't his barefoot height. He is barely taller than guys like Russell Westbrook are
GP said on 21/Jul/16
Canson, your theory about early measurements isn't valid at all. What you basically saying is that the players wake up and immediately get measured and you are also assuming that they all sleep close to 8 hours. And the idea that someone saw him and he was 6'3" is naive because you're saying that the person that met him was able to determine that Wade was 6'3" or 191cm rather than 6'3.5" or 192cm. I highly doubt that by just seeing someone from afar or even few feet away that anyone can tell with conviction or be sure that the person was 0.5" or 1cm shorter from their measured height. Unless you are to get a photo with the person, like Rob does, then I think all the other ideas are just pure fantasy. Also I would mention for you to look at that same USA 08 team photo and behind Wade is Deron Williams, who is a legit 187 or 6'1.75", unless you think his measurement is wrong too. Wade is about 2 inches taller. This guy is 192cm. He might dip to 6'3.5", but that is still 192cm.
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
@GP: you said it perfectly that Olympic pic is a good indicator. It's not for me because most ppl want to make Kobe or whomever taller than I have him. But as for the pre drafts. It's a mixed bag some guys (definitely post 09) aren't as tall as they are listed. That's when they went to all morning (before was mixed some yrs it was others wasn't). If they're taking measurements between 6-7 am it would be 1/2" lower in the afternoon. But for this draft class 2003 I wholeheartedly agree with you having met 4 players Ford Melo Bogans Hinrich. They all look their measured heights. Which leads me to believe Wade's was altered and yep Melo does look taller than Lebron in some pics
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
@GP: I agree with you on Melo Kobe and maybe Lebron. But Wade people here have met (KROC) and others have said he's 6'3. He doesn't look 6'4 and he looks close in height with Kidd TBH. Kidd isn't standing straight as we can see. He wasn't measured wrong more than likely his shoe height was moved which has happened before. I've seen ppl outside of Celebheights who have met him (these guys are 6'2) and put him in the 6'2 range. I'd say at most he's a solid 6'3" and may actually be that since he prob edges Kidd out

Everyone is so obsessed with downgrading Wade's height that they just ignore the facts and just see what they wanna see. Even in one of those bottom photos with Melo and LeBron. You guys are so fixated that you can't even see that in that same photo Melo looks taller than LeBron, which is just funny. LeBron has a big head so every inch appears to be more than it is in reality. So in reality he is 3.5" taller, but it appears to be 4". The best evidence of all those guys' heights is the US team photo where you can clearly see that Wade is 192, Kobe is 195, Melo is 199 and LeBron is 201. And those silly theories that he was measured wrong are just non sense. Majority of pre-draft measurement are correct and some possibly dropping 0.25" and very little number of them will drop 0.5" and those are most likely the taller guys since they lose more height.

Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Shane: you raise an excellent point with Wade's measurement getting moved. Knowing someone who works in the league that does happen. It also happened with Vince Carter and Shaq. There is a barefoot measurement for VC with no shoe measurement. His barefoot calls him 6'5.5 but looking at him on the court he doesn't look that tall. In reality he's at most 6'5" and that's according to teammates and even KROC met him and said it. Richard Jefferson described him as 6'4 1/2 (6'5 on a good day).

In addition, I have met 4 players from that 2003 draft class and they looked exactly as advertised or very close to it (no significant difference) TJ Ford, Kirk Hinrich, Carmelo Anthony, Keith Bogans. Ford looked around 5'10 as listed, Hinrich I would've thought was 6'2-6'2.5 (he looked at least 2" shorter than me) but posture or other factors such as shoes could've made the difference and he could be the 6'2.75 as listed. Carmelo looked his 6'6.25. He isn't anything under 6'6 for sure easy 1.5-2" he had over me. Keith Bogans is from VA like I am and he is the same age as I am (he played ball in MD for high school and I played against him) amongst others. We've always been similar in height to where I couldn't tell a diff just by looking at him unless we stood back to back. He has a pre draft of 6'4.25 for 2003 and 6'4.5 for 2002. One just appears to be earlier than the other. That being said I totally can see Wade's being inflated esp because he was never a point guard. Always a 2 or at best a combo but was undersized. Also like we both mentioned Lebron's pre draft we aren't sure if he measured at all. I raise the question for his because he claimed to not have measured after reaching 6'6" and because of how much shorter he looks than guys like KD and Paul George and even guys who supposedly only measured 1/2" taller like Love and Boozer. Not to mention they gave him 3/4" for his shoes lol. No guy that size in basketball shoes would get that little lol. So excellent point you made and one of the smartest I've seen on this site honestly!
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Shane: thank you!!! Finally someone else sees it. I wholeheartedly agree that is his shoe measurement as well. It almost has to be when 6'2 guys say he's their height or near them in height. Now I will say as you mentioned before too that he can prob pull off 6'3 out of bed and claim but 6'4 is high lol
Shane said on 16/Jul/16
I believe that Wade's shoe measurement got generously placed in his barefoot slot. No way he's 6'3"3/4 barefoot as compared to others who we know are 6'4"1/2-3/4 such as Jordan, Barkley, Stackhouse, etc... Or guys 6'3 1/2 or so like Ray Allen, etc... And not an inch plus over guys under 6'3 barefoot like John Wall. I also dont see him over 2 inches taller than 6'1" 1/2 D Rose or about that height Steph Curry.
Editor Rob: could have been first in line that morning...maybe he was rounded to 3.75 and sat a bit under the mark...
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
After seeing him with Lebron id say 191-192 out of bed and 190 at his lowest.
Dawkins said on 15/Jul/16
192.5 cm out of bed,191.5 cm at night.
Canson said on 10/Jul/16
Out of bed maybe 191-192 before bed almost 190
Crypto139 said on 9/Jul/16
He's an Abraham Lincoln. Basically a strong 192 guy.
Canson said on 9/Jul/16
I saw the interview with him right when he signed with Chicago this week where he and his wife (Gabrielle Union) were on. He does not look anything like a 192 guy (supposedly measured at). I'd say KROC's estimate is closer to reality than what he's listed. Lebron was onto something when he said he's at most 6'3. Maybe a 6'2 3/4 guy
Canson said on 6/Jul/16
@Height: 2 pics with boozer and Lebron stood out. One the pic where they all stood in single file line he looks to have about an inch the other when he stood next to him when they held their gold medals on their neck. The latter isn't conclusive because Lebron looks to lean but still looks as if boozer edges him out. How much tho tough to tell. Their are other pics tho where he looks 1/2-3/4" taller like listed on the pre drafts
Canson said on 6/Jul/16
@Height: 202+ looks perfect for Boozer. It's possible that they held morning measurements then and that he (esp as a taller guy) may lose the full inch and likely he would. I could see boozer as 6'8 maybe 6'8+ out of bed.
Height said on 4/Jul/16
@Canson

That is a fair possibility! I don't know what picture you are referring to, but I am guessing that it is one where Boozer edges him out by an inch? I think Carlos Boozer is a 202 cm- 202.5 cm guy. With him at 202.5 cm and Lebron at 200 cm at lowest could explain that picture.
Canson said on 2/Jul/16
Height: that's a good pic. Maybe Wade is 6'3 flat but I wouldn't give him more than that. I did meet Melo and he looked somewhere between (min 1.5" max 2" taller than me). He could be 6'6 at his lowest it's possible but I'd go with the pre draft as he looked it at least to me. But looking at that too Melo sometimes can look taller than Lebron. Jake mentioned Lebron (he thinks) gets down to 197. Now I agree with what you said. I feel his lowest is upper 199 near 200 (6'6.5 is what adds up from the posts we've seen). But I kinda wonder esp with evidence like that one and the pic with Carlos Boozer who is around 6'7.5 most likely (I hear people describe him as 6'7 pretty often but don't think he's that low to be honest).
Height said on 1/Jul/16
@Canson The problem with that picture is that Melo is not next to Wade, and it's not good to compare.

Here is a better example of them together, with very similar stance (Wade has a slightly wider stance than Melo, making him tad shorter): Click Here

Perhaps up to 8 cm difference, but no more.
Canson said on 1/Jul/16
@Ly: Wade definitely isn't that short. He'd be normally 190 (6'2.5-.75) and if dehydrated I can see 189. He's a cm taller than Westbrook. But Barkley is 195 (exactly his height above) at absolute most. It's possible the 6'4 5/8 was his lowest but I have friends of mine close in size with me (I'm 6'4.5) that say he is my height or close with me. I have a former boss of mine who actually is 6'3 that met him at a golf tournament along with Jordan and Pete Sampras once but unfortunately none of them at the same time. He initially had the impression that MJ was taller than CB but of course he is thinner. He said when he stood in front of both (at diff times) that he felt they were close in height and estimates both to be Over 6'4 but not 6'5 (he said they're both my height). He said more like 1.5" that both had on him. I also have a 6'2 friend who met him on a flatter surface in a restaurant and said he looked nearer 6'4 than 6'5. yes a lot of pics I see Barkley's frame is magnified. But also to many people's credit including Height's, Barkley does wear a high soled shoe.because of it I've heard some people say he's more (on this page) and I've heard during interviews with TNT when he interviews other players that he has. But I hesitate to give Barkley 6'5 or over. Too many people who have played with him have said he is 6'4 range. Including Danny ainge, Darryl Dawkins, Moses Malone, Joe Klein, and a few others say he is "almost 6'5". Most of these guys have something (someone close in height to base it on). As far as Barkley and Wade that's 2-2.5" inches in pics where they are close together. So if anything maybe 2.25 Wade 6'2.5 Barkley 6'4.75
ly said on 30/Jun/16
@Height
I dont know if there is a full 3 inch.Maybe 2.5 inches.I think the angles are magnifying Barkleys huge frame and maybe a fraction more footwear.Theres entirely a chance that Barkley is over 6ft5 but it seems hard to believe Dwayne being only 6ft1.75in.
Canson said on 30/Jun/16
I'm with KROC. He looks almost 4 full inches shorter than Carmelo does (who I've met in person and is 1.5-2" taller than me. He's as listed at 6'6.25). Lebron isn't standing straight but I believe now that he's closer to 6'7 and edges Melo out by 1cm- 1/2".

Click Here
Height said on 29/Jun/16
@ly He could be up to 1 cm shorter, it's a possibility. I actually see like 3 inch difference in the video, but that speaks more of Barkley's height than Wade's.
ly said on 28/Jun/16
he looks in every picture a full 4 inch shorter than lebron.
looked near 2 inches shorter than charles barkley in an one on one video thay did back in 2009 Click Here.
also looked a bit more than an inch shorter than 6ft4.5 michael strahan.
I think 6ft3-3.25 is better.
I really want to hear you thoughts on this Rob.
Canson said on 27/Jun/16
@Height I can measure a hair over 6'4.75 (exactly 195) an hr out of bed then 194-194.2 at night time after solid 196 out of bed so possible for Thise guys to lose it too. I can see Jordan or Barkley as the same maybe a hair taller. MJ 6'4.5 low Barkley 6'4 5/8 low maybe 1/2
Canson said on 27/Jun/16
@Height maybe a weak 194 whereas Kobe is a strong 194 like 6'4 5/8. I see maybe a cm there id go with 6'4.25 for Redd which makes sense if morning that'd be 1/2"
Canson said on 27/Jun/16
@Height: very good point about Howard too. I was wondering the same but I figured it was because Howard was a legit Center. He's shorter tho at 6'9 maybe 6'9.5 thank Bosh who's 6'10-6'10.25

Height said on 25/Jun/16
@Canson

I have to agree that perhaps Redd is on the lower end of my estimate, so maybe 194cm is more accurate. I honestly don't think he is less than 6'4.4" (194 cm flat), especially if he measured 6'4.75" 1 or 2 hours after waking up and considering that he has never seemed more than 1 cm shorter than legit 6'5"guys.

I find the picture in suits more a little more accurate than the picture in uniforms. In the picture with the unis, most players have a sort of wide stance and people like Redd, Boozer or Williams have a slightly wider stance, while other heve their head tilted down and to the side making them appear shorter. That's the reason why Redd seems about 2cms shorter than Kobe. Dwight is in front of Bosh too, so go figure about why Kidd is infront of Wade LOL.

I don't know, maybe it's hard to tell a difference of about 3 cms from a distance so if they saw him while walking. If I'm a 188cm or 189cm person and a 192 cm person walks by at an arms length or at a 1 meter distance, I would say they about my height, but that's me.

In the picture with suits Wade has at least about 2cm on Kidd from what I can see (maybe a little more).
Canson said on 25/Jun/16
@MD: this isn't the greatest pic but he doesn't look taller than Westbrook here. Now I'll be reasonable and sensible and say he's 1/2" taller. If anything not a significant downgrade just 1".
Canson said on 25/Jun/16
@Height: of course it's always possible. My guess is Redd is closer to 6'4. He looks shorter than Kobe. Maybe he was w morning measurement at 6'4.75 or rounded up to that. One reason I've gone with the 190ish is because I've seen now a few people 6'2" say he was their height and also KROC (who has been spot on with his estimates. Very spot on). Say he looked at most 6'3 and even said he has great posture. I doubt he's a flat 6'2 but more like the 190 cm (where you have Kidd). I noticed something else too that was odd. And tell me what you think. You see the Olympic pic they have him behind Kidd LOL? He's taller than Kidd at least he looks taller. Should be in front of him or maybe somehow a bad angle. I'd say maybe Kidd a 6'3 morning measurement and like 189 and Wade like 190. It's not a huge difference tho between them. Or they could be the same height
MD said on 23/Jun/16
Honestly, these downgrades seem a little silly. Here he is with 5'11" David Beckham with the angle probably benefitting David:

Click Here

Maybe he's a bit shorter than listed, but not by much.
Height said on 23/Jun/16
@Canson the thing about Wade being 6'2.75" is that that implies that virtual 6'5"guys like Kobe, Michael Redd or even MJ are 2+ inches (5cm-6cm) taller than him. From what I seen on pictures and videos, that is unlikely and the difference is more like 4cm max. So to me it doesn't make sense that he is under 191.5 cm.

Here yo can see him next to Michael Redd who is 194.5 cm - 195 cm (6'4.6" - 6'4.75") and clearly there is about 2cm -3cm max between them and both have very similar stance.

And next to Jason Kidd who is in the 189.5 cm - 190cm range (6'2.7"- 6'2.8") , you can see that there is about a 2cm- 3cm difference, even though Wade's stance is a little wider than Kidd's.

Click Here

So the way I see it is:

Michael Redd - 194.5 cm - 195 cm (6'4.6" - 6'4.75")
Dwyane Wade - 192 cm (6'3.5"- 6'3.6")
Jason Kidd - 189.5 cm - 190cm range (6'2.7"- 6'2.8")
Canson said on 21/Jun/16
@Height: I agree with your initial estimate 6'2.5- 6'2.75. He never looks almost 6'4 with anyone close in height to him. I've seen KROC who's 6'5 say he didn't even look 6'3 along with other posters on the Internet on Reddit (the latter in 6'2 range say he's their height). I'd say there may have been a discrepancy there and that the shoe measurement is 6'3 3/4. He looks 3" shorter than Penny imho and doesn't look like he'd really edge Westbrook by much. I can look at him compared to Buddy Hield who measured only 6'4.5 in sneaks in 2014 and 15 and somehow is 6'5 in sneaks now (Iooking at tweets it was 6:30 in the am cuz i seriously Doubt at 23 he actually grew. 6'3.25/.5 looks better and he's taller than Wade.

KROC has made good estimates about the ones he's seen at RP especially Kobe, Rick Fox, Garnett and even got Lebron around 6'7. I can see why Lebron and Haslem have joked about him only being 6'1 or 6'2.
Canson said on 21/Jun/16
@Shane: I think a discrepancy there too. Another poster a regular with a good eye for height KROC said in person he looked under 6'3 or barely. The poster is also 6'5 himself and has guessed others right where they appear to many
Shane said on 17/Jun/16
With everything considered over the years, Im doubting more and more Wade was ever measured at 6'3" 3/4 barefoot. No way hes James Harden's height, for example.
jajamen said on 17/May/16
Rob, I saw a site saying where he was 5'8 at junior then grew 4 inches over the summer
bobbyh3342 said on 11/May/16
westbrook is not a legit 6 4.5 on the court his predraft height was 6 2.25 barefoot so unless hes ballin in tims with .5 inch lift s the 6 3 listing fits him. but the reason he looks bigger than other 6'3 listings is because most 6'3 listings are 6 1.5 bareffoot . and hes 6 2.25 .75 bigger than most
Dan said on 10/May/16
Beavis - I don't think Russ looks any taller than Steph Curry, Steve Nash, or D-Wade. 6'3" for Russ is very close to accurate, he did look to be an inch or more shorter than the 6'4.5" Harden.
Beavis said on 13/Apr/16
Russell Westbrook is a superstar and the most athletic human on the planet. How is he not on here? Listed at 6'3.5 in shoes at 18-19 yrs old. Clearly in the 6'4 and 6'5 range in shoes. LeBron even just went on a rant about this in a interview last week. Russ when matched against Rose clearly looked 2" taller. Looks taller than 6'4 D-Wade and same height as 6'5 James Harden. Russ also looks at least 2 inches taller than all other point guards listed at 6'3. So I say a legit 6'4 and change on court for Westbrook.

Here's Wade next to 6'6" Penny Hardaway: Click Here

Looks in the 6'2.75" - 6'2.85" range.

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

Looking back at the picture I think there is less difference between the two. So I might be mistaken about D.Wade's height.

That might be like 6cm- 6.5cm (2.5 inches) So Wade might be a weak 192cm after all at 6'3.5" or 191.8 cm

What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob: many of the basketball players could drop another fraction if you measured them at 1-2pm, Wade is no exception.
joe @@ said on 4/Mar/16
he definitely look strong 6'3 perhaps 6'3.5 is quite possible
Ljungberg said on 2/Mar/16
I actually see only about an inch max between him and MJ : Click Here

And he looks a tad taller (half an inch or a little more) than Jason Kidd who is 6-2.8 / 6-3: Click Here

So with this evidence, GP's estimates that he is 6-3.5 or 6-3.75 is accurate.


On the other hand there is this video where Barkley appears to have at least 3 inches on him, so I don't know for sure: Click Here


What is your opinion on this Rob?
Canson said on 3/Feb/16
Bobby: I feel your pain. I love your honesty and the fact that you know how the "height game is played". A lot of people don't see it here but some such as me Ali Baba and others do. Ali said it best "it's a lifetime of hearing oh you're 6'8 or 6'9" just because they don't know what an authentic no bs 6'6 barefoot like Ali looks like and the upgrading and basically telling you that you don't know your own height gets frustrating. someone may see a pro athlete on the street in passing and say "oh Wade's 6'4 so you must be like 6'6 when of course you know your height better than anyone else." People don't realize that the While the NBA teams and scouts may know the true height of a player in stocking feet that the public may not. Someone posted on KG's page even saying the disclaimer. They post some of the heights to tailor to the position they're playing like a combo guard PF C if the person is smaller than avg. that I know as I have a friend who is a scout who told me never to believe every measurement (some are accurate however). Gotta also love how downgrading is seen as hating on someone but upgrading is ok. I can see how the perrception of downgrading is that way but upgrading is sort of insulting if the person claims a certain height. You are 1. Telling that person you know their body better than they do; 2. That person is incompetent; 3. That person is lying. Instead it's always that person downgrades their height when In reality it's just someone being honest. Love some of the comments. "oh what about shoes oh what if he wasn't standing straight, and what if Kobe's wife measured him at night". Funny how a pre draft out of bed carries weight but if his wife measured him at night that doesn't. Also Funny how these thoughts Come into play when someone is justifying why someone shouldn't be downgraded but when upgrading another person or claiming why they shouldn't be downgraded: "oh you're comparing him to so and so. so and so is taller than they claim they edge out everyone else in that height range. That was what he was measured so that's what he is." Love how it doesn't work both ways. I've come to the conclusion just like you have that most people lie (even when they don't know they are) (or when people think a shoe measurement is standard practice). Guess that's the way it is now lol. And like u said u can't change the way you are!
bobby3342 said on 25/Jan/16
its funny no matter how many times I tell people barkley is not 6'6 or wade is about 6'2 they always say well what about shoes, like there part of your body lol. sorry but no matter how many times you measure, 6'4 5/8 does not equal 6'6 you are what you are.

Ignacious said on 22/Jan/16
Wade is about an inch shorter than Ray Allen, who is 6-3 and 3/5 (6ft 3.6in) and about 2 inches shorter than Kobe who is 6ft 4.75in... He shouldn't be any taller than 6-3 flat.
Canson said on 20/Jan/16
Bobby: lol. Believe me I completely agree with you 100% and share your frustration. I'm Sure some of the bigger guys here like Ezioauditore Lillo T KROC Mid 190s and Ali Baba who are honest do too! Be funny to see all of us probably seperated by an inch and a half tops lol! It's frustrating because we're all being honest. I mean legit 194, 195, 196, 197, 198 guys we all are.

I'll be honest. I don't believe some of these people when they upgrade really believe it. To be fair, I feel that maybe a few (there are at least 4 or 5 who are always completely off the wall with their estimates and think people are even beyond their listed NBA or NFL heights) do it because they think it's a game we're playing and don't honestly know how tall that person is. Clueless. They don't even know for even the most obvious people that their commonly referred to height is a shoe height. But for others who believe the listing or the listing looks out of agreement with someone else's shoe listing ,they automatically upgrade.

I think a stigma here is that if we downgrade someone like u said we are diminishing them and their accomplishments. Or in other cases that they become less of a man to some people. To me the latter is insecure thinking that is probably a way of life for some of these people who get bent out of shape. Their thinking prob flows to their daily lives when it comes to themselves and wish they were taller or just want to live vicariously through these stars!

Gotta love some of the comments we see. Howard Stern's page (who you met and know is 6'5), Tim Robbins page, and conans page. The same poster for all three pages (who supposedly has 6'4 and 6'5 friends of his own) always comments that "Tall guys downgrade their height when in reality this same guy is always upgrading them even beyond their own claims. Even shorter people close to his height, he adds 2+ inches above what Rob has them listed and genuinely believes it. Then Kareem "oh taller guys downplay their height". When I hear that statement it either means that they don't really know height, don't know their own height, or lie about it. Could be a combination of each lol. Who knows? Oh well! End rant lol!!!!

Canson ,i can see how it might come of to some as a jerk. cuz when the majority of the people are calling guys like us 6'6 we get thrown in that herd whether its true or not. 85% of people call us 6'6 so it must be true right ? how can 85% of the people be wrong? We are going against what everyone else is saying, So from there perspective we are downgraders that don't believe any stars height claims(basically calling them Liars) so to the outside person they think we are making people shorter so we feel superior. when that's not the case at all. 5'10 guys have been claiming 6 feet 6'1 guys have been claimng 6'3 , 6'3 guys have been claiming 6' 5 for so long that the lie has become the truth... But I am glad that you understand my frustration.. I wish we could all meet so they could see how tall a Barefoot 195cm guy really is (not like usain bolt)lol 192cm
Canson said on 17/Jan/16
Bobby, no need to explain yourself. You along with others who tell the truth keep it real and keep this legit. I haven't seen much from Bob to judge him he prob just took the comment the wrong way. evrything you said is spot on! And you are very fair and one of the best posters and judges of height. At least your not like Duhon upgrading everyone to make himself believe he is taller than he is and to mask his own insecurity of not being as tall as he would desire.
bobby3342 said on 16/Jan/16
Well Bob My insecurity hmm 5'4.75(164cm) Me needing to measure up to others 5'6.25(168cm) Try to remain on topic , to disagree is ok , to belittle or to name call is not, We discuss heights here, lets continue to do so.
Canson said on 16/Jan/16
Bob: there is nothing wrong with what Bobby said. Bobby is simply using humor and he is correct. Being his size I encounter a lot of shoe measurers who tell me "I'm this so you're this". Basically playing the height game. I am firm like he is and don't lie about my height. He is not insecure at all just telling it like it is and very very fair overall. To his credit many of these guys here are listed in shoes and esp the basketball players are even listed beyond their shoe heights. That I know as I have seen some in person myself.
Paul said on 14/Jan/16
Usually in NBA and other bball organizations, players heights are listed including sneakers, which is why most are listed 1"-1.5" taller than they really are. It doesn't seem to be the case here with Wade though.
Bob said on 13/Jan/16
You realize you are guessing, right. There is no science to your methods. You can talk about picture comparisons or walking past whatever, but unless you see the person measured yourself it's just a guess..and bobby - why so insecure, apparently you're tall, but need to measure up to others.....yikes...too bad...
bobby3342 said on 12/Jan/16
AHH the weak azz 6'5 I know it to well(so do you) .Jordan , kobe, barkley, 89% of the guys listed at 6'6 on this site. The weak azz 6'5 club welcomes you! Dangelo rusell is not a member nor is james harden, Dwayne wade , or anybody listed 6'5 in the nba. You have to love Hollywood . lets face it canson most guys our height claim 6'6 or even god forbid 6'7 . which leads me to believe that joe mangiello is 6'4 flat b/f . On Dwayne wade how he got that 6'3.75 listing il never know but he does not look it. a legit b/f 6'3 sends off my tall person radar.and ill notice you. but when I walk by him I don't get that. so yeah im guessing maybe 62.5 alittle taller than westbrook
Canson said on 11/Jan/16
@Bobby3342: seeing Dwade next to Lebron and seeing Lebron next to taller guys who are listed closer to their actual height like Chris Bosh, and also the guys notoriously overlisted from 6'7.5ish like boozer love and Griffin, I have a hard time believing Lebron is a legit 6'7. He actually looks Similar height to Melo just like Height mentioned in his posts. I heard he really wasn't measured when he was drafted and that he refused to be measured after reaching 6'6. I'd maybe give him 6'6 and change. He never looks more than 1.5-2 solid inches taller than Kobe or Jordan and neither is a full 6'5 barefoot.
Canson said on 11/Jan/16
@Bobby3342: yup. You said it perfectly! A classic 6'2 guy. Would likely measure about the same as Russell Westbrook who is only 6'2 and change but always is viewed taller because the other point guards are smaller. Mitch Kupchak dwarfs him pretty badly. Too much for one to be 6'9ish and the other to be 6'3 lol. Kobe also has Russell by at least 2". I have a feeling his hair skewed that morning measurement and that he is really half inch shorter and probably around 6'2-6'2.5 at his norm. Jordan clarkson measured the same and looks half inch taller in some pics once we take into the hair on deangelo's head. In a nutshell clarkson is weak 6'3 prob 6'2.75 during the day.
bobby3342 said on 8/Jan/16
agreed canson ever seen Dangelo rusell ?that guy would be lucky to be 6'3 yet he's listed at 6'5 in shoes and 6 3.25 bf ( yet 6'3 adam silver is taller than him) I don't trust predraft heights wade is 6 '275. And guys please show me a basketball shoe that gives you 2 inches . even with 2 pairs of socks I only get 1.25 out of my shoes. who plays ball in platforms? I don't . I actually prefer shoes that add under a inch they help me jump better.(at least I thought they did)lol
Height said on 8/Jan/16
Wade should be about 2 inches shorter than MJ at 6'2.88" / 6'3" (190 cm).
Canson said on 5/Jan/16
These pre drafts are all screwed up. I recently heard that Wade's 6'3.75 was in a low soled shoe and that they added an inch for his in shoe height. Looks legit as he doesn't look over 6'3 flat without. Vince Carter is another. He's 6'4 1/2 (6'5 on a good day). This is from a teammate. That makes sense as he is 6'5 in shoes. Ever notice how one site has him with the 6'5 1/2 in the barefoot column with no in shoe measurement while one has a bogus 6'6.75 measurement. the latter is not a legit website or very reputable
Canson said on 23/Dec/15
if Jordan and Kobe are strong 6'4s he's right at or right below 6'3. Lebron even said he's at most 6'3. Thinking more of 190cm like SJH says as he looks 1.5-2 inches shorter than Jordan
S.J.H said on 18/Dec/15
Kobe at 6'4.75 then wade is no way over 6'3 and could have been a 190cm guy
Sam said on 8/Dec/15
He's 6'3" max.
Nexttel said on 11/Aug/15
I shrink a half inch fast at 6-3. I'm 6-3.5 out of bed but just 2 hours later I'm already a flat 6-3
Lillo thomas said on 26/Jul/15
I give wade 6'3 flat nothing more in the afternoon. Maybe 6'3.75 out of bed or very early in the morning. He always look 4 inches shorter than lebron James. He is shorter than Michael Jordan by 2 inches in the back to back pics.
GP said on 23/Jul/15
Everyone who thinks that Wade isn't 192cm, I suggest you look at photos of him with Dragic, who is a legit 190cm. You have to take into consideration that during the games some players can look shorter or taller due to camera angles, body proportions and etc. Additionally you have to be aware that lot of the basketball players don't have good postures or they care as much about their height since they are already tall. And if Wade cared about those things then he would have easily be saying that he is 6'5" and get listed at that since majority of players claim their height in shoes and get listed even higher. The lowest Wade would be is 6'3.5" which is still 192cm.

Ricky Rubio is 6'1 maybe, same as Stephen Curry. Wouldn't give either one anything over that. Dwayne Wade is 6'2.5.

Ricky Rubio is 6'2.5", D-Wade is a strong 6'3", almost 6'4" out of bed (that's when they take most draft measurements).
jjg153 said on 3/Jun/15
6'3 1/2 barefeet to 6'5" in sneakers....

Rob, you downgraded Lin from his draft height. Now it's time to downgrade Wade.

surely 6'3 strong
lillo thomas said on 28/Feb/15
I can give Wade 6'3 flat. That 6'3.75 measurement is strange.
height said on 25/Feb/15
Dwayne Wade is about 6'2.75" / 6'2.85" barefooted.
spainmen192cm said on 23/Feb/15
Rob what do you think about Ricky Rubio? He is listed at 6ft4 but he looks very similar to Stephen Curry who was measured at 6ft2 and barely taller than Damian Lillard who was measured at 6ft1.75 in NBA draft
[Editor Rob: yeah he probably is more 6ft 2 than 6ft 4!!]
WalkingTall6ft3.35 inches said on 12/Feb/15
Dwyane next to Michael Strahan looking about an inch shorter Click Here ....so 192 cm isnt a bad shout for him.
Duhon said on 27/Jan/15
I believe Wade is a strong 6'3"+. Here he is next to Michael Clarke Duncan who's listed here at 6'4.25" Click Here

{Editor Rob: I can imagine if Sly was getting this, he'd be fighting to the front of the line 'me first!'}

hahaha yeah I can totally picture that
Mathew said on 22/Jan/15
[Editor Rob: that's not really straight out of bed.]

Well he got up at 6:24 and said he was on his way to get measured at 6:30. I guess you can't really know how long he's standing waiting to be measured but it looks like he's gotta be pretty close to his high for the day.
[Editor Rob: I can imagine if Sly was getting this, he'd be fighting to the front of the line 'me first!'.
I guess it depends on how many are going to be measured and if height was the second thing taken, in some cases you might have a bunch of them being 20-40 minutes out of bed.]
Mathew said on 21/Jan/15
[Editor Rob: in some cases if the guy was measured within 1-2 hours there's a chance they could be between 0.25 and 0.5 lower at their lowest.]

They actually get measured straight out of bed. Skip to 1:55: Click Here
[Editor Rob: that's not really straight out of bed.]
Lillo Thomas said on 20/Jan/15
That 6'3.75 measurement is very weird. Must be very early in the morning. Wade never look taller than 6'3 flat to me. Lebron James owned him by a 4 solid in inches in all pics standing together.
jtm said on 19/Jan/15
take the .75 off.
MD said on 19/Jan/15
He actually isn't; it really depends on his position. He's a shooting guard, so his height is pretty average for his position. It's a bit towards the lower end, but just by a bit.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/15
He's small for NBA
Andrea said on 17/Jan/15
So i guess you can't rule out that they actually can measure something like 0.25-0.5 inches taller than their "usual low", depending on the time of the measurement (and how much a person shrinks throughout the day, which for these tall people is more likely to be at least an inch)...
[Editor Rob: in some cases if the guy was measured within 1-2 hours there's a chance they could be between 0.25 and 0.5 lower at their lowest.]
Andrea said on 17/Jan/15
Yeah, in some of the pictures with Kobe, he looks more than just one inch shorter... Rob, how are these measurements done? Is there a chance someone gets a little overmeasured or maybe measured in the morning? Could he be more 6'3.25-6'3.5 or you completely rule it out?
[Editor Rob: they will be done mainly morning, not 'out of bed' but not in the evening at any rate. There could be some errors, but it seems all the barefoot and 'in sneakers' match up ok. They wear different brands so some can be 0.75, others up to 1.5 I believe.]
Tunman said on 15/Jan/15
I think it's rather his morning height,if Kobe is really 6'4.75 I don't think there is only 1" between them.
Anyways the guy is rather small among other players.Strong chance he's closer to 6'3 than 4 in my opinion.
