How tall is Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant's Height

6ft 4.75in (195 cm)

American retired basketball player, who played for the Los Angeles Lakers. He once claimed "I'm 6 foot 6", and joked with a kid that "Everyone thinks I'm 6 feet 7 inches tall. But just between you and me, I'm really 6-4.". In another article from 2008 it quoted him saying "I'm probably 6-5 in sneaks," and that his wife "had prodded him by saying she suspected the same thing - and measured her husband at home one day at 6-4 3/4."

I agree JJ. That is his real height. 6'4.75. But I think Cam is the one dropping height. Cam is also at least that height.

@Canson

If you look at the top of ear will give you clue. they're an inch apart as kobe looking straight at camera and newton tilt up head a little and kobe shoes maybe 0.5-1cm more heel than newton sneakers. Newton is only 6'4.5 max like i say before 194cm since kobe is 195cm simplify it as 1cm apart. 6'4.5 Colin kaepernick, cam newton and other NFL players were just like NBA players draft measurement in the early morning and all look half inch shorter than their without shoes listing.

Kobe is dropping height in that picture though so Kobe 194.9cm-195.5cm, Cam newton 193.3-194cm (morning measurement taken), I will admit Kobe does look taller than the flat six four I originally thought he was I'm starting to believe his wife's measurement of 6'4 3/4" was real afternoon height, and that Kobe was downplaying with flat 6'4 193cm claim

@Dont Know What to Claim: everyone uses that picture. Kobe has a camer advantage. Manning is taller than he is
Canson said on 16/Mar/17
@Dillon: randle isn't 3" taller than Kobe I doubt. Morning 6'7.75 prob makes him a little less. Looks more like 2.5ish tho inageee. I'd put randle around 6'7.25/.5. I agree on Kobe 6'4 2/3-3/4 anywhere in there

Kobe next to 6'5 Manning.

@Dillon: TMAC is more 6'6.5. Kobe is "about 2" taller". The 6'7" he was given is from a newspaper article. I know a cousin of TMAC's that describes him as 6'6/6'7 and 6'8 in shoes. I also know that carter doesn't look more than a full two inches shorter than him
Dillon said on 16/Mar/17
Found more prove to Kobe being 6'4.75. He appears to be about 3 inches shorter than the 6'7.75 Julius Randle and 2-2.5 inches shorter than 6'7 Tracey McGrady.

Canson said on 14/Mar/17
@Dillon: that's the same with with Jordan or Barkley or anyone else. They can all appear taller than someone else or shorter. Pictures are not a good vehicle for comparison at least not always. I have one with my 6'3 friend where we are standing next to each other at a bar and he appears slightly taller in one and the same height in another. Then we stood back to back and it's 1-1.5". At the end of the day Dr J prime is 6'5.5. I even know someone who is close in height with me (he's maybe 193) that said he thought Doc was a full 6'6" but again 1.5/2" is hard to tell and most people round up heights just for effect so a 6'4.5 guy like us especially with a 6'3.5 guy will call us 6'5" even tho we both dip closer to 6'4 than 6'5 at night which is why Kobe appears more 6'5 than 6'4. But I've seen Kobe with Michael Redd or Melo in good pics and he's clearly shorter so 6'4.75 looks good for him. Redd is likely our height more or less. They do round up the numbers from 6'4.5/6'4.625 in some cases and he and Kobe are maybe 1/4" apart
Dillon said on 14/Mar/17
Although Julius Erving who is supposed to be 6'5.5, edges Kobe out by 1/2 to 3/4 of a inch or so which would put Kobe at about 6'4.75. This is a tough one. Is he 6'6 or 6'4.75? I suppose we will never really know for sure unless the someone where to ask him.

Dillon said on 14/Mar/17
I found a photo worth looking at. Kobe appears to be the same height if not slightly taller than 6'6 Jalen Rose. Seems like every time I jump on the 6'4.75 bandwagon, I find some other photo that makes me jump back on to the 6'6 bandwagon. I got to say I'm 50 50 on Kobe being 6'6 or 6'4.75. His height is really mysterious to me.

Canson said on 11/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I agree on Carter probably about 195. Kobe can look his height most of the time but I'd honestly say 194.8is or .75 for Kobe and maybe 194-194.3 for Jordan as I do feel Jordan would probably edge me by a hair but I don't see him more than a small fraction taller than I am
S.J.H said on 10/Mar/17
@Canson

Yes i agree with you carter lowest maybe flat 195cm and kobe lowest around 194.6cm and no doubt mj is 194cm flat same as you.
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I believe it truly! He's always been a hair taller. I think a peak Kobe may have been 194.8/194.9 while MJ peak 194.4.-194.5 and essentially in that 6'4.5-.6 range while Kobe probably was around 6'4.7-.75 peak he looks about 1/8-1/4" shorter and looks about 1/4" or so lower than Vince carter as well. My guesses would be:

Vince 6'4 3/4-6'5 (6'4.83-.85)
Kobe 6'4 2/3- 6'4 3/4 (6'4.7)
MJ 6'4 1/2 (6'4.5)
S.J.H said on 7/Mar/17
Click Here kobe look a few mm taller than jordan
Canson said on 6/Mar/17
@S.J.H: Kobe is taller than he is. Yep and I posted that pic before but nobody wants to believe Barkley isn't even 6'5. They instead will come up with an excuse "Oh we can't see the shoes etc etc etc". Barkley may have lost a fraction but any way you slice it his teammates have all said he's 6'4 range not 6'5" meaning he probably never was unless he was measured almost immediately upon waking and that's prob where the 6'4.75 came from maybe 2 hours or so out of bed or after some stretching or laying down. Kobe at 6'4.75 I can believe tho and kobe's head is tilted down which makes the top of his head higher making him taller because of the way his head is shaped. I know because I have stop on mine and it's the same thing
S.J.H said on 6/Mar/17
Click Here Interesting picture. Barkley look small. Haha..
Canson said on 4/Mar/17
@Johnson: my suspicion is he wasn't measured at all at the Hopps Summit and they listed it.for sure theNBA isn't going to under list someone especially the number one pick with all he has riding on this selection and his status
Canson said on 4/Mar/17
@Johnson: yes I saw that but again how is he "appearing" 6'1" to the people on this page who have met him? How is he 5" shorter than Carmelo Anthony? And no Melo isn't any taller than his pre draft states that's the most he'd be
Johnson said on 3/Mar/17
Derrick Rose data:

In 2007 measured 6'3.5 with shoes on. Curious thing a year before the draft and an inch taller with shoes on...
Click Here
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@Johnson: Rose was drafted in 2008 my man. He's about 5" shorter than Carmelo Anthony minimum. Like I've said I've seen and stood next to Melo he is at very very most his predraft measurement no taller. No he didn't grow because I saw him last year same footwear stance etc. it's just that his pre draft is one of the few that is accurate out there.So if he is 6'6-6'6.25 explain to me how a guy 5" shorter is 6'2.5? Rose's Afro doesn't even come up to Melo's eyebrows so that should tell you something there. Rose is 6'1" range at very most he's 6'1.5 like Rob has him but I believe that is a stretch like everyone else below has said. You keep using your soccer players who you claim you email and receive insider trading like Enron about but you are wrong. They can lie about their players just like anyone Manny now or joe on the street could self proclaim theirs. I'm sorry but you have no argument here and your story changes every time you reply to me to where you are honestly beginning to sound less and less intelligent and like you are one sided at looking to inflate people to accommodate someone else's height.
Johnson said on 3/Mar/17
@Canson I meant errors of copy paste figures anyway. Just compare Rose on shoes 2007 and 2008. You guessed Zidane 184.5 too much for evening... that is what I give him
Johnson said on 3/Mar/17
@Canson my answer to your last message is about to be approved in Derrick Rose section. You will see my reasons. About Lebron should be know how to read... last message is the one valid... Rob also change opinion after seeing more pics

...but you will only pick on me despite lots of people in this website guess taller than I do... curious
Canson said on 1/Mar/17
@Dillon: I used to measure 194.2 afternoon but lost small fraction like 2mm and get down to 193.9 at night I say 6'4 as well because I have taller friends who are precise and one that rounds down like a 6'5.33 friend who claims 6'5 and doesn't say change
Canson said on 1/Mar/17
@Johnson: no offense you are naive. Anyone can tell you that someone is taller on the inside of the org. It's called stat fudging and boosting. If I had a guy who was 6'0" as a basketball player I may call him 6'1" that's what they do. You probably haven't verified a thing in reality
Canson said on 1/Mar/17
@Johnson: I respect your opinion but you make no sense whatsoever. "If someone can assure you Rose and Melo are the heights they are measured". What the hell does that mean? So you're saying they're both taller than what they are listed or are you judiciously want to make them taller to make the "math work with everyone else you comment"? Not many people 18-20 grow. That is overblown. If you look comparatively against one another what they measured as it's a 5" diff. In fact one looks 6'1" the other 6'6"-6.25 imho. If you look at Lebron next to Melo he's 1-2cm taller. An you previously made Lebron 6'8 on his page. How? He's shorter than Kevin love or carlos boozer. He's max 6'7 and I agree with S.J.H maybe 200cm as how he looks next to Melo. Looks 1/2" tops. The person below was right who said he was taller than rose and he said rose is 6'1".
Johnson said on 28/Feb/17
@Canson If predrafts measurements are fine I would not argue over them. If I do it is because I heard someone one day saying some of the figures were wrong in draftexpress. If people could assure me Melo and Rose were measured at that figures then it would be ok. Another thing it is some players can grow up after 18-20 some fraction

The difficult thing is to agree about hours in listings. As I work with data of footballers in website and they are morning heights I work onto that base. If in some job we judge heights of our medicals at 2-4 hours after waking up, I consider them as ok. It depends, so I normally claim heights for this site earlier than Rob's. If it is 0.5 cm of difference it does coincide but if I see a whole centimetre or 1.5 cm I discuss them and give my opinion
Canson said on 27/Feb/17
@Dillon the very first pic does favor Kobe. He's closer to the camera. Manning is further back. We would need a back to back or one where they are behind one another like the olympics to tell that. And when two people are that close in height it can go either way. I have pics with my father who's 1cm to 1/2" shorter that can make him look even with me or taller depending on angle or shoes
Canson said on 27/Feb/17
@Johnson: you just said exactly what I was saying all along and no it isn't what you said before your story has changed.yes I agree Most people will claim especially on this site what they measure at the given time. Most measure afternoon and use that as a rule of thumb here as most follow rob's method.

But one thing jake mentioned on Lebron's page he use right about they do manipulate measurements. I know because I have a friend who is a scout who says they do it when the spine is at it's peak often and they even throw shoes in the barefoot column so my best judgment is off of people who have seen them in person or myself as a gauge. But You're saying that rose is 6'2.5 when he measured 6'1.5 he's not even that out of bed esp when you have guys that have met him in person saying he's 6'1" flat. As I said earlier, most people when assessing the athletes on this site (I don't myself but most do) use the pre drafts as their rule of thumb. We do not know what time they occur in every sport. But in basketball they are very early as shown since 2009. But you instead are inflating pre drafts. So most people for example with Isaiah Thomas will say he is 5'8.75 if he didn't say himself he's 5'8. Carmelo Anthony measured 6'6.25. Point im making is you're giving melo 1/4" extra justifying that his measurement should be 2-3 hours out of bed. I on the other hand am using rob's method of 5-7 hrs out of bed (my own height) yes I am 194 exactly in cm (come down to 193.9 at night usually sometimes 193.7 if I go to the gym and can come down even lower if I'm on my feet. However I consider the 194 my true height as I always have (I actually have said 6'4 1/2 mostly which is 194.3 because I round and because I don't feel like arguing with strong 6'3s who claim 6'4 because like you said a lot do measure in the morning. What I am saying is that a morning measurement shouldn't be any more superior to an afternoon and I agree with Rob it should be what you measure most frequently and the longest throughout the day. I am about 194 most of true day. You're essentially adding fractions on people like Melo or Kobe who were measured quite accurately. Kobe is 1.5" shorter than Melo approximately. He's 6'6" in shoes and about 195 in bare feet. He looks 195 next to melo or next to Devaean George or Matt Barnes or Metta world peace or Rick fox. MWP has claimed 6'5.5 as his height could be that or 6'5.25 he's 1/2" or 3/4 taller than Kobe is.

@Dillon: Kobe is 6'6" in shoes. That's what his dad referred to. 6'6.5 maybe early in the day in Jordans. We have someone at 6'5-6'5.25 KROC on his page who has met him and said he's 1/2" taller than Kobe is. You also have another person who met him Smoke on Allen Iverson's page that said Kobe is 6'5" on a good day which is how Richard Jefferson described Vince carter and Kobe isn't any taller than Vince if even as tall. My friend a NBA scout has met and played with Kobe. He told me Kobe doesn't look more than maybe 1/4-1/2" taller than me in person and that at a solid 6'2 like he is Kobe is 2.5-3" taller. He said Kobe looks "at most" 6'5 on a good day as well. So how is Kobe 6'6 or 6'6.5 when he's shorter than Melo is. I've met Melo he's 1.5-2" taller than me. He's 198-198.8 precisely a strong 6'6". Kobe is about identical with Jamal Crawford who measured 6'4.5 so no he isn't 6'5 and not 6'5.25. Just some food for thought Peyton manning isnt 6'5.25 at this stage of his life. He is shorter than JJ Watt by 1/4-3/8" in the papa John commercials. Also how do we know 6'5.25 was his low either? He could in his prime have gotten to 196 flat or 6'5 1/8 too. Manning is 6'5" tops today. And he is not shorter than Kobe in some pics he edges him. But to keep it real pics aren't always a good way to judge because of camera angles. My guess is he's 1/4" taller than Kobe is max. Or they're both about 195cm. Manning looked about 2" shorter just about than Osweiler did as well so he for sure isn't over 6'5". Osweiler is 6'6 7/8 combine which is morning so maybe 6'6 5/8-3/4. But more food for thought when someone is in their 40s now when height loss can begin, has been a pro athlete for nearly 20 years and taken beatings and has had 4 neck surgeries how is him not losing height possible? It's more likely he did than didn't.
Dillon said on 27/Feb/17
@Canson: By the way, I'm the same exact height as you. Every single time I go to the doctor except one time they've measured me at 6'4 and a half. The one exception was 6'4 and a quarter. I've had a lot of people think I'm 6'5 or 6'6, but I tell them I'm 6'4.
S.J.H said on 27/Feb/17
@Dillon

Kobe is not even 6'5 at most 6'4-5/8th like a younger charles barkley. Both mj and barkley look dead on 6'4.5 nowadays. On the youtube clip peyton manning look 1 cm or half inch shorter than kobe when the camera is on the corrected angle. I did daring to say peyton is only 6'4 if kobe at lowest he claim 6'4.5 and at most 6'4.25 for peyton and kobe 6'4.75 max. None of them is 6'5 or 6'6. Check out dennis rodman as the true solid 6'6 fool many people think he was 6'7-6'8 he was not
Dillon said on 26/Feb/17
Kobe is at the very least 6'5. At least as tall as 6'5.25 Peyton Manning.

Dillon said on 26/Feb/17
@Canson: How does the picture favor Kobe? He's clearly at least an inch taller than Peyton Manning. Plus I remember his dad saying he was like 6'6, 6'6.5. He's also two inches taller than 6'4 Conan and taller than 6'5 Cam Newton. Kobe is 6'6. I'm sorry that's just a fact. You can make excuses all you want, but it doesn't change the facts.
Johnson said on 26/Feb/17
@Canson my point actually is to valid the measurement done in a medical test. Perhaps it was a missunderstanding. I mean, if a speak to a footballer and he tells me "I am 177, I am measured every year", or a typical person, that would be their height, if they are not forcing the posture of course.

I don't know if you know what I mean. Rob is 173 cm in medicals. If you are not doing medicals, then you go by the measurements at home. In your case I see you are 1.94 m exactly. My case is weird that is why I became obsessed with my own case. I am normally 175.5 evening to night. Never under 175 cm. 177.5 out of bed. 2 hours after waking up I am 176. This year I was measured in a medical, in at 17:20 and I was 175.3, and also I have done a medical in the morning but 4 hours after waking up and doing walking in the park for 2 km and I was said 175.
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@S.J.H: I agree with everything you said. I have never for the life of me gotten why people feel the need to claim to be taller than they are or claim someone else is just for the sake of it. I honestly believe most people (usually shorter guys and taller guys who want to be taller or have egos) inflate others because they are insecure with themselves. But you and I along with select others here know that inflating does no good. You being 6'7 and me being 6'4+ know that inflating our heights has no incentive in our lives as it is just more problems. Back problems which I have doorway problems and vehicle which you would have in a high soles shoe and the latter for me in vehicles. I love when you see a 5'9" guy ask how tall you are and I say 6'4 and change and they argue with you because they believe they are 5'11. Then when you prove it to them " it's always well in shoes you're so and so such and such". It's always an excuse. I've never gotten it. Just because they want to be taller or are insecure with their height doesn't mean you have to follow suit just to accommodate their insecurity with themselves
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Johnson: sorry but your post made no sense saying all "normal people" say their height 2-3 hours and not 6-7 hrs. Rob is the site master and most people on this site use their afternoon or evening. So what you are telling me is that if I don't go to the doctor (if I cannot) two to three hours upon waking that the doctor is full of shigoogle when he gives me a measurement at 3pm as opposed to 9am? If I had no knowledge height varied I wouldn't even know nor would I care. So what James said to you is correct you do inflate heights and likely your own. In my case I could care less about 6'4 or 6'5. I have said 6'4" and change long enough so that's what I stick with and I list myself as 6'4". Let's be honest when you are a certain height what does me "saying" I'm 6'5" gain for me that I don't get already saying I'm 6'4"? Absolutely nothing. So don't see why a morning measurement is more superior than an afternoon. If anything I'd take the average what I measure most easily and frequently for the day and what I can replicate. My philosophy is if I measure someone who says they are 6'4 and they are 6'3 3/8 or 6'3.25 afternoon that is what they are 6'3 and change not 6'4. So your argument is wrong and is weak
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Johnson: you answered your own post to me. And james I agree with as well. You do inflate heights. First off read your post about Ibra. You told me as a matter of fact that "we can't Hearn the number after the 194 so that isn't his true height and we're trying to justify why he is talllwe than 194. And it's not to make him a height it's to make pique taller. You are telling me rose is 6'2.5 when he measured 6'1.5 and people who have met him say he is 6'1. I think I know my height better than anyone else. I am 194cm flat through afternoon and 193.9 at my lowest not 194.5. So yes you are inflating.
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Thereel: at most they are the same height. The pics favor Kobe. Kobe is at most 6'5" and this is from a guy who is 6'2" saying he totally believes he's "almost 6'5". So the 195 cm is completely believable for me as I've seen what a real 198-199 in Carmelo Anthony looks like and he's 1.5" minimum taller than Kobe is

@Johnson: thanks for clarifying and I do respect you as a poster. All I was saying is melo has 5" or near on rose. At most they line up to their pre drafts.

@S.J.H: we had the same footwear. I looked. But I doubt Kobe is as Low as 6'4.5. I used to but he looks more legit a 6'5 than Jordan does to me and to most. My friend is a scout and has met both Jordan and Kobe and he's a legit 6'2" barefoot and claims his shoe height of 6'3" some days but he is honest when classing basketball players. He said Kobe looks 6'5 in person or near it Jordan looks my height according to him as does Barkley and my 6'3" friend who has met Barkley more than once standing right next to him looks exactly how I would next to him. Jordan looks tall because of his build. I'm built the same way super long legs for a guy who is truly only closer to 6'4 not 6'5 in my case and I look taller from a distance or up next to a shorter person and when I say I'm 6'4 and change it's always I thought you were 6'6. But I'm not. Kobe looks taller next to rob Harper than Jordan too imho.
Johnson said on 24/Feb/17
@Canson reading your measurements then you are 194 cm or 194.5 cm maximum. But please don't tell me that I inflate heights when I have seen Piqué has measured barefoot 194.7-194.8 and he claims 194 and I am giving him 193.5.
I am against gut busting and I din't consider it valid. Don't make me laugh about inflating...
Johnson said on 24/Feb/17
@Canson I said that my estimations are 2-3 hours after waking up. I stay clear with that affirmation. So when I say "this celebrity is X cm tall" I am saying it according to that philosophy.

Please read it. I don't believe Rose is 189 6-7 hours after waking up. Just read. All normal people say the height in morning in whatever medical test. Saying 6-7 hours is a freak thing!! Haha. As for me I say my evening height but that is why I never got measured early in medicals and because I hold good my height until night.

@Canson

I believe carmelo is 6'6.5 in the morning and 6'6 lowest but those fractional point could be just illusion like if you're 194.0cm at night he would be like 198cm flat depending the footwear he had more on you or less or same i'm not sure but i think kobe look max 1.5" shorter than carmelo def not 1.75 or 2" like some people say. One fact is just 7 months ago when i visit NYC to my cousins apartment i met ben affleck , who get listed 6'2.5-6'2.25 here and i seriously can't see him higher than 6'1.25 in person and just a week later i'm surprise to meet john wall at a weak 6'2 whose listed 6'2.75 without shoes in draftexpress and in person wall look a strong half inch taller than affleck but still fanboys argue he is like 6'2-6'3 no way this low as a fact i've see them up close no posture issue or shoes and could easily tell their height difference like it's a little hard for others to believe stephen curry is only 6'1-6'1.25 in real. I read up a fan visit south korean meet dennis rodman in real say that he was no taller than 6'6 in person and doesn't look as heavy as he get listed (i have doubt on NBA players weight listed higher just like their height), in fact most celebrities and atheletes were under their listing all the time. A few were just 0.25-0.5 shave off listing and most of them get 1'-2' listed higher it's common nowadays just like wrestlers height often get described couple inches higher and right now many people saw 6'4-5/8th charles barkley close up photo with the rock and they still want to believe rock is 6'3-6'4 peak and described barkley as 6'7 plus guy just because they had 3 full inch different in those shots and i've to say rock is 6'2 peak and probably from the shaq and charles barkley comparison he had already down to 6'1-5/8th. As we know that kobe bryant, mj and barkley are not 6'5.5-6'6 range now but there are people will still argue they were taller and give false comments to put up their favourite celebrities here example giving others a brainwash make them think a 5'7 tom cruise being 5'8 tall and shaquille o'neal being 7'1 but not even over 7'0 and i find it a fact that kobe is taller than 6'5.25 listed peyton manning by a 1/4 or at least same height not under and a only real 6'5 taller than both of them is howard stern.
Canson said on 23/Feb/17
@Johnson: no disresepct but no. Now you are inflating my height. I am 195.8 out of bed and 194.9 after 1 hour. After two 194.5 but after 4 usually 194.2-.3. Anyhow rob's definition is 5-7 hrs out of bed. So I claim 194 flat as I am between 194-194.2 after 5-7. So you are the only one talking about something 2-4 hrs. Usually people consider the afternoon (lowest) or just take the pre draft measurement listed whether evening or morning. Now you see that this is a terrible way to compare when two are measured differently maybe even one fraudulently. And clearly I said he's 1.5-2" you automatically took the best case of 2" didn't consider it being inside 2". Either way you're wrong. If Melo is 199.5 that's under but Near 6'6.5. That still puts Rose as 6' 1.5 tops. Melo has him by 5". He's under his eyebrows very clearly. By your logic Melo would be 6'7+ which he only is upon waking up. Height loss by the way for me:

195.8-.9 out of bed
1 hour 194.9
2 hrs 194.5-.6
3 hrs 194.4
4 hrs 194.2-.4
5 hrs 194-194.2 depending on how active
6 hrs 194-194.1
7 hrs 194
After 7 can be 193.9-194 unless I go to the gym or am on my feet then 193.2 is my absolute low I've seen well past midnight

Anyway you slice it you are now increasing other people to make athletes taller
Johnson said on 23/Feb/17
I said that because you said "He had close to 2 full inches on me and I'm 193.9-194 at night". So then if you are that height at night you are 194.5 or 195 2-3 hours after waking up. Then Carmelo being 4-5 cm taller than you he would be 199.5 cm.
Canson said on 23/Feb/17
@James: counsel your boy Johnson lol
Canson said on 23/Feb/17
Johnson: just like James said you and your pseudoscience bs. You come with excuses just to make someone taller. I didn't say anything about 199.5 in any of my posts. Melo is 6'6.25 tops that is what he measured in his draft so no he isn't 199.5 he's at most 198.8. I don't know when Rose measured what he did but any of at you slice it if he is 6'1.5 afternoon (I doubt he is), he'd be 6'2-6'2.25 out of bed. More likely he's at least 5" shorter than Melo is how he looks. You want Rose to be 6'2.5 just to make Griezzmann taller that is it.
Johnson said on 22/Feb/17
@Canson according to what you have just said, you agree with me, Carmelo Anthony is 199.5 cm. (I list morning heights 2-4 hours after waking up). So Rose is 189 cm at that time. Everything is perfect
Canson said on 22/Feb/17
@S.J.H: Melo is at minimum 6'6" nothing less and could be a full 6'6.25. I stood next to him. He had close to 2 full inches on me and I'm 193.9-194 at night. Worst case he was between 1.5-2". I wouldn't go lower than 198.12 cm maybe 6'6 1/8. Kobe in some pics looks 2" shorter but others it's 1.5". I'd say Kobe could be maybe 6'4 5/8 is possible.
Dillon said on 21/Feb/17
It's confusing because different pictures tell different stories. Some pictures indicate he's 6'4.5 to 6'5 and others indicate he's 6'5.5 to 6'6. I posted several pictures to show what I mean. He's shorter than 6'5.5 Vujacic and 6'6.25 Morrison. He's only just barely taller than if not the same height as 6'4.75 Kareem Rush. But then he's taller than 6'5 Peyton Manning by like an inch or so and taller than Conan by like 2 inches.

@Canson

Had to be honest Steve Kerr kind of slapping himself because he is not 6'3 as he listed too and often look 6'2ish with Draymond Green. I don't buy Draymond over 6'5 lowest at most he look 1/4 taller than kobe and it's fine for kobe stay 6'4.75 but i have doubts that carmelo anthony might not be as tall as people thought he was 6'6.25-6'7 he might measure 6'6.25 morning but hold well at 6'6 not really 1.5"" taller than kobe and sometimes he doesn't look over 197cm but maybe by lowest he can be around 197.5cm

Click Here carmelo with self confess 171cm hong kong director/actor Stephen Fung (listed 5'8-5'9) compress Fung's hair down carmelo doesn't look over 196cm but carmelo looking pretty relax with posture than Fung. (they had similar footwear from a movie scene)

Click Here 6'2.5 blackie chan with carmelo and Stephen Fung. I suspect blackie might not be over 6'1.5 since Fung is about 5'7.5 and carmelo relax posture still hold 6'5.25 here

Click Here looks wee bit over 3cm or just 3cm kobe leaning slightly more

Click Here carmelo look solid 3cm taller

Click Here kobe maybe half a footstep closer to camera but still can't be 1.5" if they stand side by side more like 1.2-1.3" precisely

Click Here caremlo slouch a little only look solid 0.5-0.6 taller than kobe

I met John wall during lunch hour around 12pm he has to lost some height from there he look 6'2 but when i walk near him take some closer look he look a solid 187cm guy probably just fraction more not quite 6'2 could even be flat 187cm by evening and Wall always look near 3" shorter than kobe if you notice. I just wonder kobe lowest may not be over you at 194cm just that kobe had smaller head than usual 6'4-6'5 guys might give impression being a tap bit taller. I suspect john wall was measure in shoes with thin sole 0.5 boost at 6'2.75 in the morning and true barefoot height 6'2.25 and 6'1.75 afternoon/evening and kobe 6'5 morning just 6'4.5 evening/night as he round down 6'4 to the kid, carmelo 6'6.25 morning and down 6'5.75 evening/night. Another thing is one of my american cousin who was legit 6'0 he met stephen curry several times in Golden State Warriors games at night he told me on facebook curry is between 185 to 186cm probably just big 6'1 as he described not even close to 6'2 as john wall often look 0.5-0.7 taller than curry that make sense. Those draft height most of it measure in early morning and some players wear thin soles get their draft height this reminds me of my high school volley team my coach measure me at 6'6 with shoes i was 16 when i'm not even 6'5 yet at the time but all of my teammates were listed an inch or more taller on our school anniversary year book they put it as player draft height which is a lie.
Jeff said on 17/Feb/17
Rob, you should upgrade him to at least 6'5 because there's no way he is under that
Canson said on 17/Feb/17
@Dillon: green is taller than Kobe by 1/2". Green even his coaches Alvin gentry and Kerr have said is 6'5" not 6'6". If say he's 6'5.25 and Kobe 6'4.75 or green could even be as low as 196. He looks dwarfed next to Kevin Durant like 4-4.5" at times
Canson said on 17/Feb/17
@S.J.H: my guess is Kobe is at least 6'4 2/3 or probably more likely closer 6'4.75 Draymond 6'5-6'5".25. In addition to morning measurements they also inflate (you've met Wall in person as had a friend of mine who is 190.4cm (at night) 6'3 and he said he was 1-1.5" taller). Alvin gentry has said before that green is closer to 6'5 than he is 6'6 and Steve Kerr says he's 6'5" below. My guess is if draymond got measured an hour out of bed he's 6'5 1/2 or 6'5 5/8 and was rounded up and is 6'5 1/8 or 1/4 at night or even 6'5". That makes more sense as I have met Carmelo (as stated several times) and melo is at most 2" taller than I am (193.9 at night on a normal day) so my guess is that melo is 6'6.25 as he looked it. My wife and others all said about 2" one even said 1.5-2". Melo is also 1.5" or so on Kobe Bryant.

Dillon said on 13/Feb/17
Kobe is the same height as Draymond Green who is just about 6'6. He's also at least 2 inches taller than 6'3 and 3/4 Dwayne Wade. Not to mention he's taller than 6'5 Cam Newton. I could go on and on. And by the way, Carmelo is not 6'6. He's at least 6'7 if not 6'8. He is 2 inches taller than Draymond Green. I'm pretty sure Kobe is 6'6.

Honestly most celebrities and atheletes just claim higher or get listed higher than their real height. So far i realise all celebrities always look 2-3cm mostly 2cm under their listing standing with kobe bryant.


Click Here minus off rick fox hair he only look at most 0.5' taller than kobe

Click Here minus off ron artest hair look like only 1cm taller than kobe. Artest and Fox is similar in height

Click Here 6'1.5 henry thierry overall look 4" shorter than kobe

Click Here 6'2.5 blackie chen overall look 6-7cm shorter than kobe. Kobe look to be dropping fraction or 1/4' posture leaning

Click Here Kobe look a comfortable 6'6 next to 5'11 david beckham and 5'5 jack ma

Click Here Kobe look an inch taller than 6'4.75 usain bolt minus off bolt hair. Even if bolt had slightly shoe disadvantage kobe is at least 0.75 taller

Click Here Kobe look easily 1.5' taller than 6'4 2 chainz

Click Here Kobe look a least 4.25" taller than 6'1 obama not a 3.75' difference

Click Here how can jay Z be 187cm if kobe is 195cm and this picture obviously tells a solid 4" apart

Click Here jason kidd is say to be 6'3 without shoe and look at least 7cm shorter than kobe from eye to eye and head to head

Click Here similar posture with 6'4 conan o'brien overall look 1.5' taller than conan. don't fool by conan hair look the top of their head and conan head is slightly closer to camera

Click Here 6'1 obama head closer to camera still look 4" shorter than kobe

Click Here kobe looks a head taller than 5'8 jay chou


Kobe is 195/194cm if is true height while the others just listed 2cm or 1" higher like given a morning out of bed height. I found it fine with it even it was height with an inch footwear. I've know a few friends claim their height with shoes. Just example a 5'11 friend claim 6'0. There is some people who claim up 2-3inches and get suspicious by others easily and that is the real cost of lying
Canson said on 19/Jan/17
@S.J.H: Kobe has also claimed 6'6" before so I don't think it's him being uncomfortable with claiming 6'5". I also saw online at his basketball camp that he claimed 6'4.5 barefoot and 6'6 in triple socks and shoes. I'm not sure that's right I'm thinking he's at least 194.6 (6'4 5/8). Maybe he got 6'4.5 after a long day of weightlifting and playing ball which is possible if he wakes to 196-197 out of bed like he does (has to be at least 196.5-.85) if he drops to 6'4 5:8 or 3/4.
Canson said on 18/Jan/17
@S.J.H: only problem is KROC has met Kobe and listed him as 195cm as well and KROC is 6'5-6'5.25. He said he had Kobe by cm or 1/2". My guess is it was correct and that's his lowest and the guy your talking about may be hair Lower. Other 195 guys look similar to Kobe like Vince carter and don't see Kobe 1/2" taller than Jordan

Blackie chen claim 6'3 but was measure 6'2.5 for a medical statement he show it on his variety show earlier years ago and i have see more picture blackie close up with kobe bryant and their real height difference look solid 3" that put kobe up at 6'5.5 and i was wonder if blackie is measure morning and was atually 6'2 and that would put kobe bryant 6'5 and close to rob listing here. There is always a chance a fasle measurement gone wrong like kobe was atually 6'5 but measured by his wife at 6'4.75 due to loose posture but kobe just didn't care much for the little extra height. I feel that rick fox is 0.5" taller than kobe but not 1.25 or even 0.75 so rick fox could be 6'5.5 like rob mention he before he look this tall in person and kobe a good 6'5

@Thereel: yes he can give the impression but there is no way humanly possible that he is 6'6" barefoot? he was measured at 6'4 3/4 by his wife and looking at him next to Carmelo Anthony Brian Shaw Eddie Jones Vince Carter or Rick fox it's how he looks. Keep in mind a couple posters here (one of which is 6'5" himself) have met Fox and Kobe and described them as 196/197 respectively and 194/195. Rob himself met Fox too. I can believe Kobe at 195 (roughly) since that's 6'4.77 but a legit 6'6 would mean he is the same height as Carmelo Anthony just about and taller than dr J. Now I myself have met Melo and he's 198-199 barefoot. (6'6.25 pre draft) and he isn't anything above that. He's specifically a strong 198 weak 199 guy standing next to someone who is 194 at his lowest. Face it most of Hollywood lies about their height. By deduction a "6'2"" guy who is really 6'0-6'1 is going to make a guy who is 6'4.5-6'5 look 6'6".

Kobe's noticeably shorter than Peyton Manning, so 6ft4.75 is perfect, no more, no less. If I had to pick Kobe or Barkley though, I would say Barkley is the taller one, although that's just my gut feeling, because in all the photos I see, Kobe wasn't any taller than Jordan, whereas Barkley at times, was.

Kobe was out of his prime in his mid thirtees unlike MJ who showed no sighn of slowing down at 34-35, Kobe left the league too prematurely, that's why you should complete college before getting drafted as your body will age too fast, too much wear and tear, anyway Kobe is six-four obviously that is the height he claims

After looking at the video from the all star game in 2003 when both were standing in front of each other in plain view Kobe does edge out Jordan by a hair. Most people who have met Kobe say he's 6'5 whereas most that meet Jordan say weak 6'5 or 6'4 and change. I'd say:

Kobe: 196.6cm out of bed/ 194.7 at night
Jordan: 196.2cm out of bed/ 194.3 at night
Barkley: same as jordan

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

I would have to disagree with you a bit. IMO Jordan is a legit 6ft5 or at worst 6ft4.75. And Kobe was measured at 6ft4.75 by his wife, so he can't be anymore than that, so that means he's virtually the same as Jordan. Kobe probably just had footwear advantage over him.

Animus: well said! A person who is 6'4.75 at their lowest is going to appear a full 6'5 to most unless we are talking a person who is a little over 6'5 or a little over 6'4 who is doing the judging. 1/4" difference isn't that noticeable even when looking someone in the eyes of exact because the top of the head could be the difference maker
Animus said on 19/Oct/16
@Mark

Virtually anyone who is only a quarter of an inch below any given height will easily pass for that height. It can be hard for people to even distinguish differences on the order of an inch.
Mark said on 11/Oct/16
Like I mentioned, he easily passes for a 6'5" without any issue.

Kobe is the exact same height as 6'4.5 Jamal Crawford. And Jamal Crawford was measured 6'4.5 at 20 years old so he was fully grown by then. But in some pictures he appears to look more like 6'5. I think he's 6'4.5-6'5 range without a doubt.
Canson said on 9/Sep/16
@James: I do believe that Kobe would edge me by a 1/8-3/8" Probably more like 1/4-3/8" honestly.
Canson said on 8/Sep/16
@Joe: I don't think Barkley would be that much higher than I am. At most he's Kobe's height but in pics Kobe honestly looks a little taller than he is. So if Barkley did reach 194 it wouldn't surprise me. Maybe 194.3. Kobe may be around 195 (194.945)

@Steve5: you have first hand encounters that met him on this page (more than one that put him as a weak 6'5). Wallace said below 6'4.5ish compared to a 6'5 friend and KROC who is 6'5 classed Kobe 194-195. I believe that could be anywhere from 6'4.5 up to where he was measured 6'4.75 is also possible. 6'4.5 for Kobe may be a weak measurement on a longer day. Jordan I can see as 6'4.5 though

@James: I believe Kobe is taller than me but I don't think by much. I'd say 1/4" is reasonable if I fall to 6'4 3/8 and he may fall to 6'4 5/8 at most he may have a full CM and be 195 flat. I believe he's taller than Ibra by a hair as well.

Kobe bryant's height is 6'5 inches most of the time during the day and drops a tad below to 195 cms at night the lowest i could see is 6'4.75.

@Canson If you are the same height as Ibra... then is Kobe taller than you?
Steve5 said on 8/Sep/16
Here's what I don't get: Why do NBA players become authority on their own height but only provided that they downgrade? Durant said he's 6'7 on twitter so does that make that correct? Kobe clearly looks over 6'5, put him against any legit 6'4 on this site and he'll be an inch or more taller. Similar with Barkley, both him and Kobe could be 6'5.5. Plenty of NBA players are exaggerating but I see no evidence of Kobe being under 6'5 but people will go to the length of downgrading every single NBA player by 1-2cm just to prove Kobe is this height he was allegedly measured
Canson said on 7/Sep/16
@Dillon: everything you said is spot on. Melo in person looks 6'6 range (6'6.25 is spot on).
Canson said on 6/Sep/16
@Arch: I agree with you! But says more to Theler's height. I've always when looking at pictures thought he was at most 6'5. I could even see (only due to footwear) a weak 6'5. His shoes have high soles
joe### said on 6/Sep/16
Canson
you same range ibra I think Barkley would measure a little higher
Dillon said on 5/Sep/16
LeBron is 6'7 and Carmelo is 6'6 the more photos I look at. And Kobe is at least 2 inches shorter than LeBron and at least an 1.5-2 inches shorter than Carmelo. Kobe can't be anymore than 6'5. 6'4.75 is probably about right. I even saw these measurements this guy posted on a forum that said Kobe was 6'4.75 without shoes with a 6'11 wingspan. Not to mention he's also shorter than the 6'6 Rob Gronkowski.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Sep/16
It's hard to see Kobe at 6'4.75 and then somebody like Derek Theler at 6'6. To me they look about the same sort of height. I completely agree with Andrea on how some guys in 6'4-6'6 range can really look noticeably bigger than others.
Canson said on 5/Sep/16
I will say that if one of the two were taller between he and MJ I'd say it's Kobe. By maybe 1/4".
Canson said on 5/Sep/16
@Joe: I wholeheartedly agree. Barkley is at worst my height where he'd see 194. I was saying teammates who have described him on TV have said he's "closer to 6'4". But I seriously doubt he falls to 193. If I had to guess he's around 194.3 at a low maybe 196.2 out of bed
Canson said on 3/Sep/16
Christian said it perfectly below. Harden has always appeared about an inch shorter than Barkley (6'4.5) and that give or take with Kobe. he looks a legit 192 at his lowest like Pique.

Harden is no taller than Pique. It's just that he probably had slightly thicker footwear than him.
Canson said on 1/Sep/16
@Joe: in the morning yes he would be. But at a norm he's not 6'4. They measure in the AM. I've seen people that are 6'3 on the internet say he's the same as they are. Remember he was measured at 6-7 am. He's in the same draft class as curry and Blake Griffin. Look at Howard with Harden or Kobe and Harden or Westbrook. He looks about 1-1.5" shorter than Kobe 1-1.5 taller than Westbrook. And The pic you have with Pique isn't good to indicate standing next to each other. This one with Barkley is better. That's roughly an inch. And Barkley is not 6'5 1/2 like people are saying. People who have met him say he's 6'4 maybe 6'4.5 His teammates coaches fans etc.

I have not yet heard one person who has met him including my 6'3 friend say he's over the "almost 6'5" or 6'4-6'5 range. My friend said he's my height almost to the T standing in front of both of us.
Canson said on 1/Sep/16
@Dillon: I've met Carmelo and he is that height 6'6.25. Metta World Peace is 6'5 1/2 (out of his own mouth and Reggie Miller said Metta is between 6'5 and 6'6). I don't think Kobe is taller than Peyton or Cam. You really can't go off a pic especially one like Nick posted that favors Kobe. If anything they may all be about the same height. Peyton is shorter than JJ Watt who was measured 6'5 3/8 in the morning meaning more likely around 6'5-6'5 1/8 afternoon. I don't doubt Manning having been 196 in his prime for sure but It wouldn't surprise me with the neck surgeries that Peyton is Kobe's height now. Cam may also fall a hair below 6'5 if that was a morning measurement. I think Kobe having said both 6'4.5 (which is Crawford's height) and 6'4.75 a possibility he is in that range between the two.

Yet he is taller than 6'5 Peyton Manning and Cam Newton. I've also seen him with several 6'4 guys and he has them by 2 inches. I'm just confused at this point. It doesn't all add up.

Canson said on 31/Aug/16
@Christian: I agree and Kobe is likely in that range too 194-195. According to Richard Jefferson, Carter is 6'4 1/2 (6'5 on a good day) in his biography. But I don't believe Wade's measurement. That looks like a shoe measurement esp when some people have described him as low as 6'2.5 that have met him.

every pic I've seen with Kobe and Jamal Crawford they look similar. Crawford measured 6'4.5 in his pre-draft. In this pic we can't see feet but even in game they still do where footwear wouldn't factor in. Kobe has claimed to be 6'4.5 and 6'4.75 as well

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

Jamal is one of those few NBA players whose listed height is accurate to their real height, or at least almost accurate. Some examples would be Durant, Garnett, Wade, Westbrook, and formerly Vince Carter (he used to be listed as 6ft5). I believe all 6 of them are listed within half an inch of their real heights.

I live in Calabasas about a mile away from Derek Fisher before he moved. met him many times I'm exactly 5'11 and He has me by exactly two in. ive also met Kobe more than once. He's not as tall as you would think in person. At a gm My six five buddy was just as tall as Ron Harper in person but was slightly taller standing side by side with Kobe. Kobe's more like six four and a half or so
Dillon said on 30/Aug/16
I used to think Kobe might be 6'4.5 to 6'5, but looking at the pictures or him with Cam Newton and Peyton Manning, Kobe is clearly taller than both of them and they are both legit 6'5 guys. He's also 2 inches taller than 6'4 snoop dog and 6'4 Conan. His dad also mentioned Kobe is around 6'6, 6'6.5. Conclusion: Kobe is 6'6. End of discussion, case closed.

@Christian: I couldn't see it but the one pic I saw where both stood straight he looked taller because favored the other because Cam was not standing straight.

Kobe looked easily an inch taller than weak 6ft5 Cam Newton at the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice awards. And both had similar footwear, plus no camera angle advantage. Sometimes he can look a legit 6ft6, as strange as it is.
Canson said on 24/Aug/16
@S.J.H: he does edge out most of the weaker 6'5s. And a lot of people underestimate a near 195cm guy in person. TBH I can even see Kobe being middle of the 194 range at night 194.5 or so. That still looks 6'5 to a lot of people esp if he's in sneakers
Canson said on 23/Aug/16
@Bobby: thanks! Add to that the slew of 6'3 and 6'4 claiming 6'5 lol. or strong or even legit 6'4s that measure earlier in the day (we are the former with us falling below the 6'4.5 mark but over 6'4 flat at night.
S.J.H said on 22/Aug/16
When i think of over 90% of 6'5 actors were weak 6'5 down to 6'4 in person then i think kobe bryant is easily 6'5 in a mid day and that 6'4-3/4 could be measure at night.

@184guy: exactly. I have Kobe and MJ as the same as Joe. Point I'm making is 6'4 5/8 and 3/4 and 1/2 are all between 194 and 195. So saying either for Joe M or Kobe aren't unreasonable estimates.
184guy said on 9/Aug/16
Saying that he looks 194 in the pic doesn't mean that he IS. When i say the minimum he could be of 6'4 5/8 is the very worst case.I say he is 195 because he looks a legit example of a 6'4.75 guy.AT VERY WORST 1/8in below.In the photo with Rob he looks 6'4.5-6'4.75 with a 1/4 inch of advantage.But in GENERAL HE LOOKS 195

Kobe is a legit 196.He is pretty similar to Peyton and had about 3-4 cms on a legit 6'3.75 Pique

I mean really 184guy do you want to continue this? Did the little yellow 3 seater that you ride to school break down this morning and leave you stranded? I am gonna be disrespectful to you when you disrespect me and You are a retard and I will say it. I mean. All you do is make up stuff. look below: Oh and btw. I've clarified it many times. Either way you look at it if I said 194, I'd be right. 194.945 is 6'4.75 (which he claimed) and 194.3 is 6'4.5 (which Kobe claimed). So quit it with this BS and find something better (facts to argue). You don't seem to be able to so I will end this myself. Go ahead and continue to make an a$$ out of yourself.

At times Kobe he can look a legit 6'6", and others he can look barely over 6'4". Whether you see him as 6'6", 6'5", 6'4.75", 6'4.5", or 6'4", it's not as if anyone claimed him to be 5'10", so any one of those above 5 heights is rational.
Canson said on 5/Aug/16
@James: Honestly, Height has nothing to do with this argument whatsoever. And no he is not a hypocrite. he is being respectful and politically correct and not getting involved as it isn't his place. He recognizes that.That's why he earns the respect he has. And no I don't call him nor would I ever call him retarded because wouldnt childishly embellish or manipulate words and put them in my mouth and take my posts and turns them around on me like you and 184guy do just because You have nothing else to say in response for your argument. Yes You both do it. When you are stuck and can't respond back after I've provided facts or clarity on my responses you continued to exaggerate and embellish my own words to make me look bad and that is immature and not very intelligent or cool. You wanted to call a troll or what not, Yes Both of you called me troll (184guy jumped on this page and wasn't even part of the convo) and belittled and then when trying to justify couldn't. You instead harped on "Kobe is 194 cm flat." Then 184guy went as far as to say that I called Lebron "194cm" then you with Will Smith below. James read between the lines with Smith. 5-6"? What do you think I'm saying 6'0-6'1. There you go being childish again and finding something. If you get to that point after someone explains something then just admit you were wrong. I've done it. I'd have a lot more respect for you had you done it and had you not been trying to sway my opinion on Kobe. You're down to 194.5 as a possibility now. I just said 194-195 (6'4.5-.75). I can't be a troll if I am repeating what Kobe said out of his own mouth in regards to his height. He's said both.

I'll be the first to admit I took it too far and I was wrong. I went too far calling you retarded both of you. I am sorry for doing that! And I won't do it again and I'd appreciate if you stop exaggerating my posts and basically turning them into lies because both of you did. If you want to argue, then do it based on facts. If you can't then either don't respond back lol, or just admit you are wrong. Also don't bring agendas into this. Don't "want" someone to be taller. Either they are that height or they arent. Doesn't Change Kobe as a person or player whether he is a listed 6'6 or only a strong 6'4 or weak 6'5. He's still one of the greatest and prob the #2 2guard to lace them. So let's move on and I apologize again.
James said on 5/Aug/16
@Height You are highly hypocrite. Canson is extremely disrespectful to other users. Canson call to other users like @184guy and me "retarded" and you still say "Thanks! I really enjoy discussing heights here." If he were calling you retarded you wouldn't say thanks.

@175 cm I agree with you that both Canson and me should do an effort to stop this litte "war". As soon as he doesn't call me "retarded" again I will respect him. It's true that I was wrong calling him "troll" but he definetely went so far calling @184guy and me "retarded".

@175cm: I agree with you and you are absolutely right that it is guessing and is opinion and that it should get like this. I didn't help the situation but it's because I'm a no nonsense type person and just don't like lying stupidity and inflation. As far as I'm concerned 6'4.75 (194.945 cm) or 1/2 (194.3) are both between 194 and 195 so don't see why the argument is continuing. And The estimate is based on what the man out of his mouth said and I keep hearing "well so and so is this height so Kobe is or must be this."

Canson said on 28/Jul/16
Quick cm conversion guide:

194.9495 is 6'4.75 (which Kobe Bryant has claimed) and his wife measured him.
194.3 cm is 6'4.5 (which Kobe Bryant has claimed).
Posted KROC said between 194 and 195. Poster Brad said "Kobe Strong 6'4".

I think anyone with a brain can tell exactly what that means. He is not a full 195cm and that he is in the 194 range. So James enough with this and enough with your posts because you sound more and more retarded just like 184guy in all of your attacks. Just because you want him to be 196cm like you claim (I see now you are all the way down to he may be 194.5 so obviously you weren't so convinced before). Hmmm?

Quick cm conversion guide:

194.9495 is 6'4.75 (which Kobe Bryant has claimed) and his wife measured him.
194.3 cm is 6'4.5 (which Kobe Bryant has claimed).

Alex: that's a bit low for him. He's 194.5 avg. 6'4 1/2-5/
He's the same size as Colin Kapernick and Michael Jordan

Canson said on 26/Jun/16
@Alex: probably more like 194 barefoot and 197+ in shoes. I can't see him as 6'5 or over but don't see him as 6'4 flat. He and Jordan are both around 6'4.5 along with Barkley.


James the two quotes above are what I said.

if you are going to use a quote, use the entire thing. So there you have it and it explains why you read at the level of a 1st grader and do math at the level of a 2nd grader, because you cannot even convert inches to centimeters. "He and Jordan are both around 6'4.5 along with Barkley" would imply that he is 194.3 cm. Just to help you with your learning disability, 6'4.5 is 194.3 cm. to help you further, 194.3 is, in fact, between 194 and 195. Good luck with your home schooling. You will need it in order to get a job somewhere. You seriously sound more and more retarded with every post you make. Just go ahead and stop while you are behind. You seriously have no credibility here.
Canson said on 27/Jul/16
Now James love it how you conveniently left out the remainder of the quote where i said around 6'4.5 like Barkley for the "194" that you are so obsessed with. Since you have such senility and selective memory why don't you scroll all the way down to June 27th and find it. To my knowledge (oh and I am an avg 6'4.5 guy) that is 194.3 cm. that's over a flat 194 but under 195 right? So what is your argument here? Who are you trying to convince?

Canson said on 27/Jul/16
@James: I understand what you said that he looks 196 in pics. I'm going off what he said both 6'4.5 and 6'4.75. And no don't say he can't be any less than 195 because you don't know. Any legit 195 guy can easily dip under 195. If he did it wouldn't even be noticeable to any of us.
Canson said on 27/Jul/16
Well James I clarified it enough times. and said between 194 and 195. I mean if you want to get technical about it that's fine but 194 can mean 194 or 194.9 or if someone is rounding could mean 194.5+. You're going off what you see which is fine, but someone else who met him in person also said he's also between 194-195 (I think I mentioned that below enough times). And just to break it down because you don't seem very good at converting that is between 6'4.5-.75 both of which are heights Kobe Bryant, the man, has claimed himself. That could mean either of the two or right in between. At the end of the day, if you are 6'4.77 (195) you could easily get down another 1/8" or so. 6'4.5 and .75 are practically unnoticeable. Oh and not to mention another poster said he's a strong 6'4 as well. So if someone is between 194 and 195 that means they are in the 194 range. Somewhere in the range perhaps near 195, but are still under 195. So yes that's 194 if you can do the math. Interpret it however you want to but I am done explaining this. You want to continue to pout like a baby, and exaggerate stuff ("I can't believe Canson said 194" repeatedly and you can't let it go and wasn't what I meant, like you are trying to persuade me that Kobe is a height he said he wasn't then go ahead and do it. Was he that good to you? Funny when someone doesn't agree with you or see it your way you belittle. Remember this is opinion based and you were the one who attacked me not vice versa.

"Canson said on 26/Jun/16
@Alex: probably more like 194 barefoot and 197+ in shoes."

In this older comment, Mr. Canson doesn't say that Kobe is "194-195 cm range" or even "194.2 or 194.3". Mr. Canson only says Kobe is 194 cm barefoot. Therefore a fast reading made me understand he was saying that Kobe is in fact "only" 194 cm. That was a pretty normal confusion, nobody is perfect.

"Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@Height: Thank You!!!!! Yep That's exactly what I said too! I believe he's over the flat 194 but under 195. i don't see Kobe or MJ (in their primes) below 194.3 or over 195 is what I was really saying"

On this recent comment, Mr. Canson has even proposed that 194.3 cm could be Kobe's real height.


Now, let's approach empirically the 194-195 cm theory:

Piqué is officially listed as 193 cm:
Click Here

Compare Piqué to 191 cm officially listed Kiko Casilla:
Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

Piqué is 192 cm.

The French Thierry Henry is officialy listed as 188 cm.
Click Here

Henry next to 185-186 cm range Cristiano Ronaldo
Click Here

Henry next to 189 cm officially listed Adriano Leite "the Emperor":
Click Here

Henry next to 185 cm officially listed (184 cm real height) Zinedine Zidane:
Click Here

As you can see Henry is a solid 188 cm. But even if he is 187 cm, he still looks 9 cm shorter than Kobe in this pic:
Click Here

In other words, Kobe LOOKS 196 cm next to both Piqué and Henry. He can be 195 cm for sure, but probably no less. And 100% sure he is no less than 194.5 cm.


Anyway, Mr. Canson's approach is non-empirical. He makes a lot of estimations completely a priori, not based on any kind of empirical evidence (photos). I don't like the "philosophical" approach of Mr. Canson. Don't get me wrong, I love philosophy. But when it comes to the height issue is better an empirical approach (based on pictures).
James said on 25/Jul/16
@Canson Henry is 188 cm. As I said Kobe LOOKS 196 cm in the pics with Piqué and Henry. He could be 195 cm, but no less for sure.
James said on 25/Jul/16
"Canson said on 26/Jun/16
@Alex: probably more like 194 barefoot and 197+ in shoes."

Initially Mr. Canson argued that Kobe is 194 cm flat, here is the quote.
Canson said on 25/Jul/16
@Height: never saw this pic but it's interesting. Don't know if angle is compromised (or Kobe has a significant footwear advantage). I wondered because at times he looked taller than Manning and at others the same. I'd have figured he Barkley and Jordan were all the same and that they'd look the Same on tv since the cm isn't easy to spot same with he and Manning. But it also may just be what people have said about Barkley not being as tall as advertised 6'6. But If Kobe is really taller he is at least 195 range.

@Johnson: Kobe claimed 6'4 and a half and three quarters both and two guys on this site have seen him. One said strong 6'4 (Brad). Brad is around 6'6. Another is KROC who is 6'5 196cm flat as he has described himself. He has said before Kobe is between 194-195 and that he is taller than Kobe. So I respect your opinion but No way Kobe is over 195 cm range. keep in mind that Pique is listed as 192 cm and nowhere is he listed 193. In some places he's listed as 6'3". I'd say he's at most and absolute most 192cm if that's what he's listed.

Well with no official measurement for Thierry I reckon he could be 6'1 or 6'2

Click Here. I believe in the morning he'd easily be 6'2 but based on the below he is listed 6'1
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@Height: the pic wasn't that bad really. Thats similar to how they looked on television at the awards. At times Kobe appeared taller and at times Manning did other times they were the same. Hard to say who's taller bUt they look within 1/2" of each other any way you shake it. Most of your pics have objectivity for the most part. I know there's no such thing as a perfect picture especially on Celebheights, but you put a good effort in on each post and it shows you are objective and you see clear indicators for the differences
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@James: ok. Since you insist. We can't see their shoes between Kobe and Pique. 175cm made a good point below. Since you want to use the old "we don't know if Kobe's wife measured him at night" adage then I'll use that. Fact is the poor pics you post are adequate when you want to make someone taller than they are. But when showing they look as listed they aren't any good. And oh btw Rob has him pegged at 6'4.75 195cm above so yes you are upgrading him. At least I said he looks 194-195 (between 6'4.5 and 6'4.75). In the grand scheme of things there is no "negligible" or "visible" difference between a 6'4.5 and 6'4.75 guy unless you use the garbage you continue to post that clearly is biased and favors someone else. Which appears to be the trend here on this site for a lot of people trying to make someone taller

@James

Canson's theory is that Kobe is between 194 cm - 195 cm at his lowest, not a flat 194 cm.
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@James: if you believe Kobe is 196 that is fine with me. But my opinion is and I will put it in caps so that you can comprehend it this time HE IS BETWEEN 194-195. THAT MEANS HE IS OVER 194 and prob a bit shy of 195. Would he measure over 6'5 at some point during the day? Indeed he would. I do as well when I wake up. He probably would measure 6'4.75 for most of the day and maybe see 6'4 1/2 or 5/8 in the afternoon or evening which is the norm for most guys who claim 6'5. They don't always measure it legit
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@175cm: I will say this and very very sincerely that Height at least puts effort and proof in to his posts and he is logical and methodical in his approach and he makes superb points unlike James and 184guy both. But I wholeheartedly agree with you that none of the pics anyone here across this site posts are very good pics. I honestly believe Kobe is over 194 but under or at 195 tops which is what he has claimed before. In my case being a guy who is a solid 194 at night time I have been guessed 6'5 in my life just as often or more than 6'4. And add to that I have long legs and broad shoulders so I automatically look taller than I am and with MJ and Kobe both long legs as well same with Barkley
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
No James I am not a troll. I think you tho have a learning disability of some sort or a reading comprehension problem of some sort because you obviously can't retain what you read or see and to add to it I honestly believe you have a crush on both Jordan and Kobe since you like to make them taller than they are. What do you wish that they were in you or something? Jesus.
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@James: this is becoming very repetitive. Where did I say Kobe is flat 194cm? Point to a reference where I said he is. Please. I said for the umpteenth time between 194-195. Stop putting words in my mouth. And again I will say that you are comparing a listed height of another athlete to Kobe. I don't know how tall Thiery is and don't know when he was measured. Ok if you want to use morning height Kobe is easy 196 we all know that. But he claimed both 6'4 1/2 and 3/4 because he measured in the afternoon and no on the court he doesn't look 196 with anyone. He looks 195 in many cases like Height said as well but being a bit shy of 195 isn't far fetched and in fact it's hardly noticeable.

Do you really think Kobe looks 194 cm next to Thierry Henry? Be serious, the guy looks a solid 196 cm in comparison with the football legend.

Even if Kobe has a little shoes advantange, he still looks a solid 196 cm next to Piqué. There is no empirical evidence (photos) of Kobe being 194 cm.

@Canson are you a troll? There is no evidence of Kobe being 194 cm and you still insist.

@Canson I think this video works better than most of the pictures.

What would you say about Manning's and Kobe's height?

Click Here

Can you see why I have the 195 cm - 195.5 cm theory for Kobe (and MJ)?
Height said on 21/Jul/16
@ Canson I'm not influenced and I don't have an agenda on upgrading or downgrading. I'm just trying to be LOGICAL on the evidence I have seen since, and based on that MJ and Kobe don't look any shorter than a full 195 cm - 195.5 cm at night. I think you are too judgmental on theories/ideas that differ from yours (for example categorizing my past ideas as better). I think I have never judged your ideas, but opted to disagree and explain why I disagree. I do the same with everyone else here.

The video with Peyton Manning shows Kobe as virtually the same height, that's another piece of evidence for example.
Canson said on 21/Jul/16
@175cm: I can't see Kobe being that short based on ppl who have met him and MJ both. I'd say he's at minimum 6'4.5 at his lowest and somewhere between 6'4.5-.75 (194-195) regular height. Similar for MJ
Johnson said on 20/Jul/16
@Canson Go to Ibrahimovic section. Below in the comments there is a link to the youtube clip where we can see 194.7 194.8 cm (big screen required to see the figures). In the Soccer section there is a good pic of Piqué and Rio Ferdinand and Piqué is taller than him. About Ibra and Piqué we don't have very good pics only 2 not very clear and can fool us. My opinion: Ibrahimovic 195, Piqué 193.4 Kobe 196.4
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
@Vegas: I thought Kobe said he's 6'5 in sneaks. If he did say 6'4 it's a lie def. he's over 6'5 in sneaks easy but may be under 6'6 but him being 6'5.5-6'6 in sneaks is feasible maybe just rounded down.
184guy said on 20/Jul/16
@Canson said on 20/Jul/16
Just one question.If Piqué is no more than 6'3-6'3.25 , how tall do you think a guy like Ibra or Sergio Busquets is ?
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
@Height: I honestly can't tell a difference between 1.49cm and 1.6 or 1.7 and doubt anyone can TBH. I agree Kobe is prob inside of 194 between 194-195. As for Pique that 194.7 on the stadio meter I have looked everywhere and don't see any reference to it. I think someone made that up as they do a lot of other stuff to make people taller. I haven't seen him as 193 either only 192. And knowing how newer athletes (in recent years def) are measured in the morning he likely is 191. That's the thing yea you haven't heard anyone refer to him (outside ESPN deportes) because he didn't measure that. None of these heights are lows for the most. They're highs or morning and that's why people don't think objectively. Some of the heights years back were afternoon measurements however like the Melos the Bogans's the Hinrichs you know guys from 2003 all look it. So when I make my points I'm basically saying because someone who was measured 192 in the morning you can't legally compare them to someone else (claiming 194-195 like Kobe has) and say that he is 196 because Pique is 192. It doesn't work that way. Also go look at what KROC said about Kobe on Mangianellos page (Kobe is between 194-195 which he has said many many times and that he can look 6'4 flat in person). So what I am saying has merit it's just that evreyone here inflates heights which I don't do. Also Height in the beginning seeing older posts from you you had Jordan at 194.3-195. It seems like the others who have said 196 have influenced you to change it. It's all a guess but You had better points before with where you were honestly based on points
Height said on 19/Jul/16
@Canson the point is not Pique's height, I don't consider it gospel, but a 191 cm theory for him is unheard of. He is often referred to as 193 cm and sometimes 194 cm, so 192 cm at his lowest sounds reasonable, especially because he looks a legit 10/11 cm taller than 182 cm - 183 cm guys.

The point is that Kobe consistently looks 4 cm - 5 cm taller than him when they were together, and that his lowest is at or inside 195 cm

That height still maintains about a 3.8 cm difference with Melo (1.49")
Canson said on 19/Jul/16
@184guy: no I didn't say that. Wtf are you putting words in my mouth? I didn't say anywhere here Kobe is only 194 nor did I say that Wade is 187. I clearly said I think he's 190 and Kobe 194-195. Don't know how many times I said it. But don't get angry at me. You started this and it's because I don't agree with you that's all. And Why don't you go learn to comprehend what you read before you make comments like that. And Melo (who I have met is 6'6.25 as listed) That is 198.8 cm. I just clearly said he's at least around 1.5" taller than Kobe. It doesn't take too may pics with them together to tell that. And no Carmelo isn't taller than he is listed if that's the route you were planning on taking. They wouldn't underlist an already by many standards short small forward. Are you telling me it's less than that? I'd put Kobe between 194-195 like I've said over and over and like KROC who has met Kobe said. Get your s**t straight.That's between 6'4.5-.75. And btw any time anyone else has posted the exact same pic it has been a good pic. It's not for me just because everyone here comes in wanting their idol to be taller than they are. For God sakes are you attacking me over a cm? I said 194-195. 195.58 is 6'5 so yes we are really arguing childishly over it. And unfortunately Kobe is the one who self proclaimed himself both 6'4 1/2 and 6'4 3/4. He didn't ask to be put there he was measured at that. So I'm not making it up. And no do not give me a story about Kobe downplaying himself or being measured at night like all the other fanboys such as James have done. It's always an excuse like that just because others like Pique (who likely got his 192 in the morning) aren't as tall as they claim. KROC 196cm flat himself noticed an advantage on Kobe and called it so it's now more than one person just on this page.

Wade was an inch taller than Zach Levi on video backstage on tonight show and rob has been photographed with levi so no wade isn't 6'2 range.

Paul is on video with kimmel and looks every bit his stated measured height

Arguing measured height is usually a complete waste of time..btw soccer listings are hit and miss across the board. We all remember the glasgow Celtic player listed 5'8 by his former club and rob caught him fir a full length photo and he turned out to be 6'2.

Btw on topic it looks like Kobe was telling a bit if white lie when he claimed to stand 6'4 in sneaks..

Again. Kobe is at least 1.5" shorter than Carmelo so explain to me how he is 6'5 1/4. He's at most 195 like KROC said before. There are angles where Manning has him as well. A 1/2" is not easy to detect unless they are in full view right next to each other or back to back. End of the day Peyton 196 Kobe 195. Period

@184guy: have you met any of these guys in person? No you haven't so you're the one I don't take seriously. Have you seen Jordan's page? And Kobes?

I'll take their word from having seen them in person over you posting some sorry bs you do and flogging these guys knobs the way you and everyone else do. Stop telling me so and so is this height because chances are you are comparing a morning measurement (Pique) to an afternoon. Enough said

@James: the pics u posted comparing him to Wade are beyond atrocious. I apologize. Not to mention one of them they are extremely close nowhere near 4cm. And Wade doesn't look anywhere near 192. Paul is said to be 5'11.75 by pre draft standards and two people who met him (one is 5'11 on his page) have said he's 5'10. Don't know if he got a shoe measurement moved over like Wade likely did. But We'll split it for the sake of it and call him 5'11 because he can look taller than Iverson imho. But Wade doesn't have 4" on him. Wade isn't anything over 6'3 tops and that's a gift (191) and the posts I've seen in other places outside of here have merit now. He may be under 6'3" flat and only 190. (if you see other places here two or three people have said that have met him he's under 6'3. Nobody who has met him has said he's near 6'4.) he's nowhere near 6'4 with Melo. Melo has 8 good cm on him maybe even 9 in these pics. Wade can look as small as 6'2.5 with him in some

I think it was said somewhere on this site by someone else and is being used by everyone as gospel now just as a lot of other quotes and nuggets of info that usually favor someone being taller. Every place I've seen he's listed 192 and I am willing to bet any amount of money that this is his morning measurement. Meaning he'd likely be at absolute absolute most, a solid 6'4 out of bed and 6'3-6'3.25 (191) at night like I mentioned before. ESPN lists pique as 6'3 not 6'4. If he "truly" measured over 6'4.5 194.7 is 6'4.6+, then he'd prob be listed as 6'5 but no less than 6'4. I suspect that this "mysterious" 194.7 was a shoe measurement or was something that was made up and that he really measured 192 which I can easily see in the morning. Now if he measured the 192 then he measured it but it is likely that Kobe's measurement was at a different time so the comparison is not valid. If anything the afternoon or lower height should be the one considered when "comparing" two people unless they measure and claim the same time

Do not take Canson serious guys.He obviously has a problem trying to guess guys around 6'5
Just take a look at his comments at Joe,Kobe and MJ.
Manganiello is easily 195 as I had already post some proofs and Rob has said that he is in the 195-195,5cm range and this troll insistis to put him as low as 6'4.25
Kobe is a legit 196.He is pretty similar to Peyton and had about 3-4 cms on a legit 6'3.75 Pique
But I agree with him in one point.Dwayne Wade isn't 6'3.75,more like 6'3.25 or even 6'3

@James: With Carmelo Anthony. That is more than an inch it's at least 1.5" and no Melo is not taller than his listed pre draft height 6'6.25 in case that was getting ready to be said. I've met him. It's verifiable in other pics with guys like Kyle Korver and Paul Pierce. And no, shoes aren't in an issue. Kobe has almost the same diff with Melo that I had when I met him. If anything maybe an unnoticeable diff like maybe 1/4" which I'll give him which would put Kobe in the high 194 range (194.6-.7) which is close enough to call him almost 195. He isn't over that.

@Canson

I would regard ESPN as generalists on heights and not the best of sources, if ESPN counts more than comparisons, then Kobe is the 6'6" listed there and Wade is the 6'4" listed there. Truth is they don't include heights with precision like in here with .25, .50, .75 for example. So if someone is 192 cm, they could either list him or her at 6'3" or 6'4".

I posted a video where Pique has a clear 10 cm/ 11 cm on 182 cm - 183cm measured Ivan Rakitic. He is often referred to as a solid 192 cm guy because he measured 194.7 cm in the morning or afternoon. It is logical that he drops max to 192 cm.

@BIGgame he looks taller on certain angles while they are both slightly moving, and on others he looks the same. So My guess is that, if there is a difference between them, they are within 1cm max of each other. I'm not a follower of Manning, so I only know he is not considered any lower than 196 cm.

@James: I respect your opinion I really do. And you are thinking logically. But you keep doing the same repetitive thing. Using someone else's height for reference. ok. We do know that most athletes are measured in the morning? Right? They do. I have seen Pique as 6'3 on ESPN. That counts more than someone who is "supposedly" 191 and you comparing Pique to him. Time of day is the standard and should be but few here think of that. I think it's well beyond known that these measurements occur in the morning. But if you can find the time where Pique measured 192, please do. I will bet and guarantee that isn't his lowest. everyone here is going off claims or what someone "appears" to be when in reality you can't tell. I am 194cm myself and have a friend who is 191. The latter is built like I am and he is honest but at times people say you two are about the same height and sometimes if Footwear is diff then he can look as tall as me almost. Oh and basketball shoes are higher than soccer cleats.

So if Pique measured it in the morning at 192 which he likely did and I don't doubt it, then at the end of the day he wouldn't be. If he received a 192 measurement then he likely wakes to 193. That's common sense. And he is likely 191 at the end of the day. I have no doubts that Kobe would be over 6'5" in the morning so not arguing there. He likely if Pique measured 192 would be mid 196 out of bed and drop to mid to high 194 which is what I have said many times. However if the man himself claimed 6'4.5/6'4.75 why are we all of a sudden inflating him and undermining his claim just to make others taller? That is what you are doing. so who are we to argue. Height varies throughout the day. That is all I am saying and if Kobe measured and desires to claim his afternoon height then there is nothing wrong with that. You do see above Rob has him at 6'4.75 right? I don't simply inflate people to boost someone else or to "fall in line with people." That's what others here do. Kobe knows himself better than anyone else and if that is what he measured "and claims" then that's what he is. Not to mention we have a reliable enough claim from a 6'5 guy (KROC) here on this site to say he edged him out and enough other people that also say 194-195. Let's agree to disagree if this is the case but I will clarify again 194 flat is 6'4 3/8 (which I measure at the end of the day). I doubt Kobe is that low. My guess would be that he's around 194.4-195 That's 6'4.5-.75. I think that is close enough to be honest and nobody could tell a difference unless standing right in front of him (KROC and Brad both have said he's a strong 6'4 to weak 6'5").

@James: number one, get your facts straight and do not put words in my mouth. I have never said here on this site that Kobe Bryant is 194 flat. Never. So cut the crap and stop exaggerating my claim because I don't agree with you. That's exactly what you are doing. Clearly I said he's between 194-195. Please James. Find me a place where I said he's 194 flat. Oh you can't can you?

Number two quit telling me so and so is this height or that height. That is what a lot of people on this site do and mysteriously it is always a claimed height of someone else being bounced against the other. And always one person (example Wade who is 191 not 192) is used and it's Oh Kobe can't be just 195 because Wade is 192. Doesn't work that way. Wade from pics and LeBron's mouth is 6'3 tops. I have seen many people who are 6'2 all over the Internet say Wade is their height. KROC described him as 190 when he met him. And Never does he look almost 6'4. I will take the word of KROC who has met Wade and Kobe both and put them right where I have them. KROC at 196 cm flat, James, said Kobe is 194-195 (195 tops) that obviously implies to me that he saw a difference in height with him. Jim on MJ's page described MJ as 6'4.5-6'4.75 (don't know what time Jim measured himself). Also how many times has Kobe said "I'm 6'4 1/2 and 6'4 3/4" which oh coincedentally comes out to 194-195? I'm going off what he has claimed and what everyone else who has seen him in person has said James. Jordan has never been a flat 6'5. His peers have even called him 6'4 range but nope let's not take their word. Let's continue to inflate other people and make MJ taller.

And it doesn't matter if they are because two 194-195 cm guys are both sure fit first ballot hall of famers and two of the best to lace up and prob number 1 and 2 at that position. Their height means nothing. Oh and when was Pique measured at 193 cm (height said 194.7 but he was 193 according to the Internet) on the stadiometer? If it was in the morning which it likely was, he's 191 then not 192 or 193. So yes if Kobe is 4cm taller which he likely is or about 4. I know people who have seen and met jordan and have seen pics of 6'2 and 6'3 guys next to Jordan (who you call the same height as Kobe) and they aren't 2 and 3" shorter. They are maybe 1.5 and 2.5. I don't get how people close in height with these guys can call them 6'4-6'5 if they were in reality truly 6'5" at their lowest. That implies that they aren't. Keep in mind both wear sneaks most of the time so they'd always look 6'5 or more to the public always and wouldn't be called 6'4 by 1/2 of the general population and other half 6'5". What you don't understand and most don't is that I am a legit 194 cm guy myself. Friends who have met MJ said he's about as tall as I am. Of course he could be closer to 195 but I doubt a full 6'5 if more than one person has described a guy with egregiously long legs as 6'4 to 6'5 and are close in height with him.

It seems Kobe looked taller than Manning at the ESPYS. There was only one photo in which Manning looked taller and he had obvious camera advantage. Kobe is at least Manning's height.
James said on 16/Jul/16
And Kobe also looks 196 cm next to 192 cm Dwyane Wade:

So Kobe looks 196 cm next to Piqué, Henry, Wade and Jordan. Still, Canson thinks Kobe could be 194 cm flat. Unbelievable.

Canson you are constantly insisting on the same mistake. You are extremely dogmatic. There is no way Kobe could be 194 cm flat as you always say.

Height said on 16/Jul/16
I don't agree that Pique is shorter than 192 cm Canson. He was measured with a stadiometer at 194.7 cm (morning most probably) and has a clear 10cm, if not 11 cm, on 182-183 cm Ivan Rakitic: Click Here

His absolute lowest is a solid 192 cm.
Height said on 16/Jul/16
@Canson

Pictures where you can't see players feet/stance or where one of the players is closer to the camera are not good for comparing height with precision. Perhaps they are good for giving a general idea, but are not good for comparing with precision.
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
@Jake: I already said I haven't met those guys he mentioned. But do me a favor since you are so demonstrative. Why don't you enlighten us all with a picture of a 6'5.75 Lebron and explain how he slept in the gym where they were measured. Otherwise you have cause for suspicion. This site is subjective as we all know and we all just give our opinions and mine come from people who have met them and I've provided pics for my comparisons. So why don't you do the same or shut the eff up
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
@Height: the definition you have for "strong" 6'4" is incorrect. If that's his lowest, he'd be 6'5 at worst a weak 6'5. (Typically give people the full number if they're within 1/4"). My suspicion is Kobe is below 195 flat at his lowest. A strong 6'4 is what I am 6'4 3/8 194 cm at my lowest. 194.3-195 is weak 6'5. I do agree tho that MJ and he are the same height virtually. What I was saying is if one is taller than the other it'd likely be Kobe. I wasn't saying he def is. And I say it because Kobe looks the exact same as Carter while Carter is taller than Jordan by a hair. I'm beginning to think Carter is around 195 and the other two are 194.3-194.6 at their lowest
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
@RP: I noticed that too. Manning looks to be around 196 cm flat (in the papa john's commercials JJ Watt edges him out).

@Height: I agree with you but this is all subjective, all of us are. We all have our viewpoints and we are both pretty close in our estimates 6'4.5 vs 6'4.75 which isn't really noticeable. We really can't see a diff unless someone is a cm or more unless you look strictly at eye level. But 195 at Kobe's lowest is possible I agree, but I honestly think he drops to around 194.3-195 range. One thing to take into account is if his wife measured him at home at that height, we don't know what time of day or whether he was lounging around. I've done the experiment myself, if I lounge around and don't leave the house or lay down most of the day I don't get down as low either. I use KROC as reference as he said 194-195 which implies to me 6'4 1/2-5/8 from a guy who is a solid 6'5 maybe 6'5 1/8 himself. If I had to guess Kobe's as low as 6'4.5 but as high as 6'4.75 at his lowest so I'll split the diff and call him 6'4 5/8ish. I say what I say because I'm similar in height to these guys (he MJ and Barkley) and often get class'd 6'5" when I'm under 6'4 1/2 in reality. People round up so much.

But I will say as I know legit 195 people who are never guessed as 6'4 they always get 6'5. even someone like me who is an average 6'4.5 guy when I take into account my lowest of 6'4 3/8 then look at someone in a mirror. If that person is 3/8" taller I would not be able to tell if they are 3/8 or 1/2" just by looking at them and I'd class them as 6'5 myself. But another thing we all have to look at. Some of these guys we use for comparison in the NBA are self claiming their heights and even in later years the pre drafts while most are "at the time they measure in the morning" not all are correct. I see a lot of people using the pre drafts for reference but unless u compare two people in the same draft class that are verifiably measured at a certain time or same time the comparison is no good. For example if one person was measured in 04 (let's say Iggy) and one in 2010 (let's say Steph curry) Iggy will look closer to his height because we know for a fact that in 2009 that all measurements were morning going forward. My estimate for Iggy is in line with yours I'd say he's the same height as Draymond or maybe 1/4" taller. I suspect in other years that was the case as well but it's on record for 2009 and beyond.
