Looks 200 range (about 6'7" next to Kevin love or Cam Newton
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
Agree with DD. 200 at night but close enough to look and claim 6'7" after all Cam Newton himself is "about" 6'5 and called Lebron 6'7"
dd said on 23/Apr/17
Flat 200cm(200.1~200.3cm) or close to 200cm(199.6~199.8cm) during the evening.

I'm 200% sure about this.
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@Retard: he measured 6'5.5 in the morning so doubt derozan is 6'6" more like 6'5.25 or 6'5.5 if he grew which is 296.8-.9. Yes if Lebron is 1.5-2" on him he's 6'7"
RETARD said on 16/Apr/17
Demar Derozan was measured w/o shoes at 197 cm 19 yo. He is 197.5/198 I guess. Even comparing him to kobe you will see this. See the height difference with lebron. 1.75/2 inchs. If you think less than 1.5 yousa dumbass
Canson said on 14/Apr/17
@Shiva: while I've never met Lebron in person I have met melo. He's 198 range. I stood next to him at a Restaurant and my wife and other people around and with us said he's 1.5-2" (4-5cm) taller than me. I saw the same. So likely more like 1.75 ish. I am 193.9cm at my lowest for what it's worth. He's for sure a full 6'6" maybe as high as 6'6.25 but likely somewhere in between 6'6 1/8 maybe lowest. His pre draft is 6'6.25 so close enough but remember most are taken earlier in the day and if he measured 198.3 which is like 6'6.05-.10 they'd automatically give him the 1/4 because they round up (that I know for sure as there are no 1/8" increments). They also do throw a .75" on some people but not these two guys. But for what it's worth I do agree with you Lebron is 2cm or at worst 1/2" taller than melo is. My opinion is he is more like 200 at his lowest which is falling only 1/4" maybe even within that below 6-7. So for all intents in purposes he is 6'7" whether it's weak 6'7" strong or solid. Problem with this site is people see a specific person and because they are Michael Jordan or Lebron etc they're automatically 6'6" and 6'8" respectively when those are only listed heights for them. Jordan is 6'4.5 Lebron 6'7"

Interesting side note: a lot of the basketball camps by Nike etc and even USA Basketball have started doing only in-shoe measurements. I can see and agree with doing both, but if you only measure with shoes a guy could easily find a way to look like they have a 1 to 1.5 inch sneaker on and have lifts or insoles to the point of gaining 3 inches or whatever. You really need to do a barefoot measurement if measuring in shoes to ensure the measurements are reasonable.

@johnson: they definitely can at 17-18 and 18-19 is possible too. Jason maxiell grew. I played against him and he didn't look noticeably than me at 19 (maybe half inch) but today is like 6'5.5. But next to Loce or boozer Lebron is smaller than both
Johnson said on 12/Apr/17
I know many people who grew up since 17-18 years old
Canson said on 12/Apr/17
@Rob: how much taller would you say he is than Carmelo Anthony? Melo is 6'6-6'6.25 tops
Canson said on 11/Apr/17
@Chris: well if you have followed Rob's threads long enough you would know that heights vary throughout the day so it is very possible Lebron can measure below 6'7.25. Especially given that basketball heights are usually taken in the morning and given the fact that Lebron himself has said he was never measured after surpassing 6'6". Even if he really did measure 6'7.25 he could easily be 6'6.75 at his low (afternoon/evening) which Rob considers your true height or closer to it
Editor Rob: no basketball player will be measured at their low, unless they had an all nighter the day before the combine...and since they do the measurements reasonably early, I think many will still drop another fraction or more.

Saying that, always a chance some 18-19 gained a bit more, Lebron really looks a big 6ft 7-7.5 ranger.

LeBron James height is

6'8.25 or 204cms out of bed

6'7-7.25 or 201cms before bed
Canson said on 10/Apr/17
out of bed 202-203
Before bed 200
Chris said on 10/Apr/17
He looks about the same height as Kevin Love in team USA photos as well. Maybe slightly shorter. Love measured at 6 ft 7.8 at the combine, flat footed.
Chris said on 10/Apr/17
What's wrong with you guys. You have legitimate, scientific medical records that he was exactly 6ft 7.25in (201 cm) aged 18 years of age. How on earth is he smaller than that?

It's much more likely that he is taller than that. People stop growing at about 21
Canson said on 6/Apr/17
@Ice: understood. There isn't an exception for most to downgrade its that most of the draft measurements are not accurate (st least not at their lowest) and others are inflated. I do believe Lebron at some point during the course of the day would measure 6'7.25. So I agree with you. I do however believe that would be a morning or late morning measurement. I think he looks near enough 6'7" however at his lowest
Canson said on 5/Apr/17
@Kei: to your friend being listed 6'6" on draft express. John wall is also listed 6'2.75 he isn't. I live in Virginia right outside DC and attend many games and a friend is a ticket holder and said he's 1-1.5@ taller than Wall. He also met Beal tho and said Beal is his height 6'3 or slightly taller (he may actually have grown). Remember SJH also met Wall and said he's under 6'2" in person.
Canson said on 5/Apr/17
@Kei: boozer and Lebron are not the same height. Boozer is taller in every pic. By the way Boozer was 6'7.75 not a full 6'8". And remember most NBA measurements take place earlier in the day rather than later. Love is taller than lebron as well. And he measures the same as Boozer. Look at him next to Melo he isn't 2" taller than him or even 1.5" it's less than an inch. Same with Dwight Howard he is not just an inch taller it's at least 2". I'm sure Cam has met Lebron more than once in his lifetime. The pic with the two clearly shows at most 2" differenxe. I would be able to tell a 6'7" guy vs a 6'6" guy pretty easily at 6'4". That is not uncommon for a 6'7" guy like Lebron whether he's a weak 6'7 or a full 6'7" or strong or even a very strong 6'6" at his lowest to be listed at 6'8" in sneaks.

@Canson: I'm not trying to argue for him being taller. Even if this due was 5'7.25", he could stand on his wallet and still reach whatever height he wants, and I would be none the richer or poorer for it. I just don't understand the obsession with downsizing extremely tall people. They have less reason to lie than normal sized folks. There are some people who are determined to make Shaq less than 7'0 as well. I don't get it. As for Lebron, I believe the 6'7.25"(+) because they have to have physicals to even get cleared, and height is a part of that. That's how they determine if guys have weird issues like two different leg lengths, oversized hearts, etc. He may refuse his family doctor, but a high schooler trying to get into the NBA would have to submit. Maybe now he could get away with it, but not then.
Kei said on 5/Apr/17
Just because Cam said Lebron was 6'7 does not mean he is 6'7. I get 7 fett 6'9 and 6'7 all the time when people see me in person. An inch may have been hard for Cam to differentiate. Cam has to look up at Lebron and Cam is 6'5 himself. Also Boozer is 6'8 barefeet and Lebron is about the same.
Johnson said on 4/Apr/17
@Canson I thought basketball players were measured every year
Canson said on 4/Apr/17
@Ice: see below. Others have commented on it as well. And very funny you ask for that when you want someone to be the height it shows or taller than they are but if you were trying to make him shorter as well you wouldn't even ask for it, it'd be the case automatically.

ice said on 4/Apr/17
@Canson: Where is the quote of him saying he was never measured after 6'6"?
Canson said on 3/Apr/17
@Kei: so Cam newton has obviously met Lebron from the pic below and this is a recent (last year) posting from Cam. He says himself that Lebron is 6'7" (read it). Why would he say that as Lebron has also called himself 6'7" before as well. If he were 6'7.75 Lebron would be 6'8". He's 6'8" in shoes

Click Here
Canson said on 3/Apr/17
@Kei: well how is Boozer and Love taller than Lebron? Both are. At best Lebron is 6'7.25 like listed pre draft. Only question was he really measured and is that his lowest
Canson said on 3/Apr/17
@Ice: if he was really measured. Lebron himself claims that he was never measured after surpassing 6'6" not to mention if that measurement wasn't at his lowest. Of course there is a chance he really is 6'7.25. I don't believe he is much of at all under 6'7".
ice said on 2/Apr/17
I really can't take anyone who guesses below 6'7.25" seriously. He was measured at that height without shoes at 18. Therefore, he is AT LEAST that height. What is wrong with people?
Kei said on 1/Apr/17
No at 6'6 I went to school with a guy who is an amateur basketball player who's was always about two inches shorter than me. He was 6'6 our senior year, and i was like a weak 6'8 at the time, he has a picture with Lebron and Lebron has him by no less than 1.75 inches, and even on draftexpress the guy is listed at 6'6.
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
@Dont Know What to Claim: Lebron is "almost" always taller than Melo in pics. I agree it isn't much. But he's maybe 1/2" taller. The worst you ca argue for them is 6'6" for Melo and 6'6.5 for Lebron. Melo is definitely a full 6'6 nothing less. He looks 1.5" taller than Kobe in pics too and Lebron looks 1.5-2" on Kobe
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
@Kei: it wouldn't surprise me if S.J.H is taller than Lebron to be honest. S.J.H's low is 6'6.9 whereas Lebron may be 6'6.75 or possibly even a hair lower like 6'6 5/8. Like I mentioned earlier it is tough to see on TV how tall someone actually is. You would probably assume that Melo is 6'8" next to Lebron but he's tops a 6'6.25 guy and may only be a flat 6'6". He's no lower than that though. Lebron never looked as tall as Carlos Boozer or Kevin Love both of whom are 201-202
Kei said on 31/Mar/17
But "much taller" I would say no about that, he can't be much shorter than me. I never viewed myself as being very tall.
Kei said on 31/Mar/17
Idk maybe you are right. I used to work at an after school program and some kids from there met Lebron and said that they didn't think he was as tall as me, but It could be because they are kids and i'm a lot skinnier only 191 compared to his 250. I just don't think he looks any shorter than me, I was just measured at 6'8 203cm barefoot 6'9 in shoes. @ S.J.H
S.J.H said on 30/Mar/17
@Kei

No obligation. That prove you are not 6'8. There is legit barefoot 6'8 in my family and he easily look much taller than lebron.
Canson said on 30/Mar/17
Out of bed 202-202.5
Before bed 199.5-200
Canson said on 30/Mar/17
Andrew Wiggins skipped his pre draft. He was on Sportscenter and was as tall or shorter than Scott Van Pelt who is 6'6" Lebron by Rob's standards 5-7 hours) is 200-201. Could be as low as 6'6.75ish or could be 6'7".
I'm 5'9 but people say I'm like 6'0 said on 29/Mar/17
Lebron is about 6'8 w/o shoes and 6'9 in shoes. If you notice he always looks much bigger than players listed at 6'8 like Andrew wiggins or Kawhi Leonard who is measured 1inch shorter than Lebron. Anything below 6'7.5 is silly
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
@Ker: unless you see him in person you can't tell simply looking at a picture or how he looks on TV when the camera adds 2" and 20 lbs. he never looks as tall as legit 6'8" guys on the court and barely looks any taller than Carmelo does who is only 198-199. Like he was measured. Melo looked about his draft height in person
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
@Borats: they got rid of the decimal. Used to say 6'6.25

@Don't know what to claim, there is no way Lebron and Melo are shorter than 6'6.5"
Don't know what to claim(5'11") said on 27/Mar/17
@canson

Do you have any images of melo with lebron similar footwear? Melo was measured 6'6.25 barefoot and it looks at times melo edges LeBron. Just like the last pic I posted.

I stand by lebron being 6'5.75-6'6.

So this is three things now
1) a 6'6 claimed guy is taller than 6'6.25 measured melo so lebron is definitely not 6'6.25
2)picture with Kobe shows only 1" difference between lebron and Kobe
3)melo measures 6'6.25 barefoot and Lebron does not look taller than him.

@Free: agreed probably more weak 6'7
Canson said on 25/Mar/17
@Dont know what to claim: that isn't all that good of a picture. In other pics Lebron edges Kobe by 2" and melo by 1/2" usually or can be anywhere from 1 up to 2cm max. Lebron claiming 6'7" barefoot is fair for him and Melo 6'6" looks accurate in person even tho he's stronger 6'6" than a guy like Bill Deblasio would be. Kobe weak 6'5 that can also claim 6'5 fairly as an act of rounding up
Free said on 25/Mar/17
LeBron looks 6-7
Canson said on 25/Mar/17
@Dont Know What to Claim: could Be any factors such as posture angle shoes etc. maybe the 6'6" guy is 199-200 or a full 200 and rounds down
Don't know what to claim said on 23/Mar/17
If the guy on the video is really 6'6 and melo is shorter than him Lebron needs a downgrade ASAP because melo and lebron are very similar in height. We are looking at Lebron potentially being 6'5.5".

More evidence

I know Kobe is ever so slightly standing in front, but it's a good picture. They are wearing the Same kit so most likely same Nike USA team shoes.

IF Kobe is 195cm I am not give Lebron anything more than 197.75cm

Also based on the pic Kobe looks like he's dropping the most height..

Rob, you listed Kobe at 195cm so what is lebrons height based on this pic??
Click Here
Don't know what to claim said on 23/Mar/17
@canson

melo is probably not 6'5 I agree. He is taller than Kobe by 1.5". But the guy is described as 6'6 and melo was comfortably shorter than him, even in basketball sneakers by at least 1". I'm going to put that down to the guy being taller than 6'6. But that is unlikely, how often do people claim less than they are?


The other option is Kobe is actually flat 6'4, melo 6'5.5 and the guy 6'6-6'6.5"
S.J.H said on 23/Mar/17
@Canson

Thanks Canson! It's the truth to talk about :)
Canson said on 22/Mar/17
@Dont know what to claim: I have met Melo. He is at minimum a full 6'6 but looks more like 198.5 at least. Im 193.9 at my lowest and at that point last year still was 194flat. Melo had me by 1.5-2". Lebron is 200cm more likely. He looks a full inch almost shorter than love and boozer maybe 2cm and they'd be around 202cm. Kobe at 195 is more realistic. He isn't a full 6'5 more 194.75-195. CP 5'11" tops. Chandler spot on 6'11 though from pics
Nimesh said on 22/Mar/17
6.6 even

How can LeBron be 6 7.25. His sneaker heels are just .75 inches?

I believe the guy in the beginning is described as 6'6 at 3:52 in this video Click Here

By that, Kobe is approx. 6'5
Lebron 6'7.5
Carmelo anthony 6'5
Tyson Chandler 6'11
CP3 6'0.5
Kevin Love 6'8
S.J.H said on 21/Mar/17
Just highlights. Kobe is never 6cm shorter than lebron and always look 5cm between them. Kobe i can still believe lowest 195cm and lebron 200cm sounds fitting it at worst they're both fraction under it before bed.
jj said on 21/Mar/17
Next to 193.3-194cm (morning measurment) cam newton he looks 197CM...... I think he's a big 200cm guy that explains why he can give a impression of so low next to Cam, he usually looks a solid six seven though thats true, just food for thought
Canson said on 15/Mar/17
@S.J.H: id say he can see that too. 199.5/200
S.J.H said on 15/Mar/17
Just not a single mm over 200cm by night would be true. I still stick with 199.5cm for lebron lowest
Canson said on 13/Mar/17
@ddmae: i agree
ddmae said on 12/Mar/17
Flat 200cm at night
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I'd have to say Majerle is prob at least Christian's height maybe 6'5 3/8 (196.5) but not over 6'5.5. He looks maybe 1/2" shorter than Richard Dumas maybe even 1/4" Dumas is probably 6'6" barefoot as listed pre draft and he looked maybe 2" shorter than Oliver Miller did and prob an inch taller than barkley did generally maybe even less as sometimes they looked pretty close in height
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: majerle looks more than 6'5". Ainge is 6'4" and he looks 1-1.5" taller. Ainge also said he was 6'4 and that Barkley was maybe 1/2" taller when in a press conferenxe once in Phoenix. I'd put Majerle as at least a 196cm guy and prob strong 196, and he's taller than Barkley is and Jordan. Someone who has met majerle once said 6'5 although he calls himself 6'6. I think he exaggerated one inch taller and it's prob 2" really. But Duncan yes he's 6'10. Garnett is an inch taller so is Dirk. I think Yao maybe is 7'4 he just has a larger head than they do so the diff is less pronounced and maybe he is only 7'3.75
S.J.H said on 6/Mar/17
@Canson

Dan Majerle was more in the 6'4.75-6'5 range if you compare him with michael jordan who dip down strong 6'4.5 so if he call kevin love a 6'7 guy like i say at most love is 6'7.25 really not quite 6'7.5 if you see the post lebron james look max 6'6.5 with yao ming and i'm not sure if you have notice yao ming make tim duncan and kevin garnett both look under 6'11

Click Here by yao ming self confess 7'3-3/4 i can't see both tim duncan and kevin garnett at 6'11-6'11.25 they look 6'10.25-6'10.5 range. Yao look close to 6" taller than garnett comparison looks like solid 14cm if yao is 223cm at his lowest then garnett could be 209cm and duncan 208.5cm so i wouldn't surprise if kevin love was really 6'7 at his lowest range since he got lebron by 0.5 most of time
Canson said on 4/Mar/17
@Canada: I agree with the pic Duhon posted he looks 1/2" shorter maybe 3/4 than Kevin love. Prob 6'7" not 6'8.
Canada said on 3/Mar/17
6'7.25 was his measurement back when he was 18, to me he seems like a legit 6'8 now, maybe even 6'8.10-15
Canson said on 2/Mar/17
@S.J.H: for Love maybe right at 202 or weak 202 is my guess at his lowest. They say the 2008 measurements were afternoon so he would've gotten help if he falls that low. But as an undersized power forward I can believe it. And Hair can always add some height too but that's prob 1/4" so maybe 6'7.5 in reality then 6'7.25 low. Majerle also said "an inch taller than him". Majerle isn't really 6'6" tho he looks more 6'5 range and he's shorter than miller imho which is why people assum Barkley is taller than he is when Majerle also said Barkley is 6'4" range as did Ainge and Joe Klein.Majerle has had back surgeries so maybe he was 6'6" at one point. I only see Lebron dropping because one person said they met him here and he was shorter than him and he was 6'7" but could be timing. To me Lebron looks maybe 6'6 5/8 after a long day as worst case. But I can also buy 200cm as well. He may be exact with you. I wholeheartedly agree on griffin. Deandre Jordan was from the 2008 class where it was afternoon and he may even see 6'9.5 if he measured 6'9.75. He looks 1.5" shorter than Kevin Garnett who I believe is rob's listed height for him. Blake is minimum 2" shorter than Jordan but can look 2-3" at times. Or 2-2.5. I'd say 6'7.5 for Blake is more likely he looks nothing taller than Love in the commercial they had together. But you and I both know that people want others to be taller here so it's gonna be that DJ grew since he was drafted or Lebron grew or what not. That's how it works. Like Bobby3342 said we are truth tellers in a world full of bull****ers
S.J.H said on 27/Feb/17
@Canson

Yes i have wondering lebron dipping his lowest 199.5cm whenever i look at lebron i felt he would be a full cm shorter than i just like how he look 1/2cm taller than carmelo who fell in flat 198cm lowest and some full picture could strongly tell it's like a 1.5cm difference between them not quite in the 2cm zone. I'm not sure above kevin love is 6'7.5 because most of time i look at him he doesn't look a taller guy than i. Maybe love and i were exactly same height or he could be a fraction taller at most i would have go 6'7.25 for love like Dan Majerle call him 6'7 and i recently heard that blake griffin may not be 6'8.5 that's a very tall nba fans mention he was 6'5-6'6 comment from a fitness blog he have met griffin close up say he was between 6'7.5 to 6'8 max not the draftexpress given without shoes 6'8.75 and 6'8.5 rob listing.
Canson said on 26/Feb/17
@S.JH: I would go with 6'6.75 just like you said maybe a hair lower evening. I'd be curious to see if you and Lebron wore the same footwear who would be taller. You may edge him by a 1/2cm to full cm possibly as you are a true 200.5 whereas he may only be 199.5-200 (I'd say closer to 200 however) at night. I'd put Kevin love around 6'7.5 at his lowest. Love and Tristan Thompson are similar and I know for a fact Thompson falling 2009 or later would be an earlier measurement and love as a power forward would need the boost (I also remember Dan Majerle calling love 6'7).
S.J.H said on 24/Feb/17

Canson said on 30/Jan/17
Well Rob initially had Jordan 6'4.75 but someone here (a fanboy) said "oh my gosh Rob he's only the greatest athlete of all time why don't you just give him the full 6'5". Like that makes him a better player or something. Jordan in reality (at his lowest) isn't even a full 195cm. No way he is when he's guessed by more people as 6'4/6'5 than a full 6'5. A guy at a full 195 cm 6'4.77 wouldn't be guessed 6'4/6'5, he'd be 6'5 unless someone is exact on their own height and within maybe 1/2" with Jordan.hes about 6'4.5-6'4 5/8 is about It. Lebron at 200 I certainly agree with and he can be anywhere 6'6.75-6'7. Some have said he wasn't even measured for the pre draft (Kobe has a listed pr draft and he skipped his). I'd go 194.5ish for MJ 200 for James
S.J.H said on 30/Jan/17
Pause at 1:22 atually michael jordan only look 1.5" shorter and if jordan is 6'5 then lebron james is 6'6.5 and no way above 6'6.75 and only from 1:23 to 1:26 when lebron get the advantage closer to camera look 2-2.25" taller. Jordan is more like a real 6'4.75 guy whose claiming 6'6 therefore a chance max 6'6.75 for lebron and most likely now i think he might be just a solid 6'6 plus guy since kobe bryant claim he is only 6'4.5. Another honest part with fact that kobe bryant look at most 2" shorter than lebron and sometimes they can look just 1.5" in height difference.

Click Here It looks from shoulder and top of head solid 1.5" but lebron look to drop a little more height from standing than kobe and the only way lebron james could look 6cm taller than kobe bryant is those bad camera angle and kobe with flat sneakers like those old post which posted by people who wanted to lebron james to be higher than listing and put down kobe bryant height which i feel sorry for them. I'm a person who go by math and logical sights. I can't lie to say lebron is solid or good 6'7.25 which his not

Ok i disagree with your disagreeing with official measurements and stuff, but still
you got mj as 196, his measurements got him 196 cm, he just is 196 cm
Click Here here lebron has no less than 1 3/4" on mj, and he certainly grew up
Canson said on 12/Jan/17
@Jake: well said. I agree with everything you said as spot on except of course lebron's height lol. The lowest he is is 6'6-6'7. But nonetheless very good post and thoughts to that response!
Canson said on 9/Jan/17
@Brad: in that pic he does but in others They almost line up to their draft measurements and Love is slightly taller. I've seen Love next to other players as well that edge him around 6'8". Derrick Williams I believe edged him or was the same height. My guess for Love is 6'7.5 (202) Lebron 6'6.75-6'7 at his lowest (200). I only went with 1/4" lower because both are likely a bit earlier in the day (based on how they appear on the court) and next to other players.
Brad said on 8/Jan/17
I think with the Sports industry over in the the US they love to exaggerat pretty much anything

LeBron was measured just over 6'7" as a teen when 1st drafted so there is a possibility he could have grown an inch or 2

Looks the same height as 6'7.75" barefoot Kevin Love

Please stop bringing race into this because I'm a proud black man from the UK & I believe LeBron to be Six-five or six-six yes there is obsession with race on the general height forum about average height for young white men LOL I don't get it who cares? not everyone where we go is white, so why it matter? but no not everything has to do with race brah just because he's black doesn't mean people downgrade somone c'mon brah
Canson said on 5/Jan/17
@Realist: no offense but that's by far the stupidest comment I have ever heard or seen on this site and pretty offensive and I am a minor toy myself. You sound like a fanboy who "wants" his favorite athlete or star to be taller than he is. His predraft measurement lists him 6'7.25. Of course there is debate as to whether he was measured but How are they downgrading him when he is listed at that in his bio? And if you look at pictures most 6'7.75 or 6'7.5 guys are taller than he is and 6'6 ones only a hair shorter. How is cam newton 2" shorter if he's 6'8 and ac was officially measured at 6'5? and what does race have to do with it? Better yet what does his race have to Do with his height and whether or not he was downgraded? They don't go hand in hand either lebron is the height or he isn't.

James said on 3/Jan/17
@Jake Even if LeBron was measured in the morning, he was measured probably at least an hour after he wake up. There is a video of Rob showing how we lost 1 entire cm in the first hour out of bed. Still, LeBron was measured as a comfortable 2' 01 m. In the the evening LeBron is (at worst) a legit 2 metres tall man. You must believe Canson, he really knows what he is talking about.
jake said on 29/Dec/16
I don't know why its so hard to believe that Lebron could of got measured fresh out of bed I mean there is even video evidence of Blake Griffin waking up at 6:27 at the draft combine remember the video where Blake says "i thought i was 6'9" but i will take 6'8 3/4" 6'10" in shoes" now that would of been a very early measurement
Canson said on 28/Dec/16
@Jake: how tall would you guess draymond green to be? Green got 197.5 at the combine and his assistant coach (Alvin gentry) now NO pelicans head coach said he's listed 6'7 but closer to 6'5 than 6'6". But that's still putting green 196 range even if and Lebron is noticeably taller at least 1.5" 3-4cm
Canson said on 28/Dec/16
@Jake: I respect your opinion but I agree with Duhon. His mother wouldn't have anything to do with his measurement esp a barefoot one. Remember that Lebron was Mature coming out of high school already and was already widely expected and known to be the first pick. Even if he were really only 6'6" it wouldn't have had an impact because he was seen as a guy who played 1-3 back then out of high school. Remember Melo was measured 6'6.25 coming out and it didn't impact his status (I have met Carmelo Anthony in person And he is a legit 198-199 guy next to me hence the 6'7" listing with shoes at Syracuse). Lebron didn't need any fudging done because he was already right for his position. I do agree tho that the numbers get fudged on occasion via a friend who was a scout. However he even has said Bron is about 6'7". Now it's debatable he was not measured for the 03 draft as he implied before when he said he was never measured once surpassing 6'6". Kobe wasn't measured. But even if that is true lebron by all accounts (next to Kevin Love or Carlos Boozer) as well as Melo, looks 6'7ish. He's 1/2"-1" taller than Melo (I'd reckon 1-2"-2cm more likely).
Duhon said on 27/Dec/16
jake said on 27/Dec/16
LeBrons mom is real bossy she has her spoilt 18year old son 6'6" max put on paper as 6'7 1/4".

That's ridiculous, Lebron "on paper" has always been listed at 6'8". Barely anyone in the general public pays attention to the pre-draft measurements. So the idea his mom would try to affect his barefoot measured height is a joke. The only height she would try to change if she wanted would be his official NBA listed height which has always been 6'8".
Canson said on 27/Dec/16
@Jake: I have to respectfully disagree with you on some of what you said. Lebron was already established to be to his "hometown team" the first pick and he was listed 6'7" in high school. He didn't need his mom to do a thing nor would him being only 6'6" barefoot have any impact. You realize as well Melo was measured at 6'6.25 and it didn't affect his draft status at all. I've met Melo since he's been a pro and before he became one. He was 6'5" range in high school and is a strong 6'6" as well like measured (198-199). It was on their own merit and both likely was finished growing. Now whether lebron was "actually" measured as Shane also mentioned below is a question. He claims he wasn't at one point and Kobe also has a pre draft listed when he skipped his admittedly. So he may not have measured 6'7.25 officially if he didn't. However, him measuring that would be no issue. he would likely be closer to 6'8" out of bed 202-203 and still at least 200cm at his lowest. Look at him next to Cam Newton and he's "about 2" taller. Cam called him 6'7" too. Therefore he likely doesn't drop below 6'6.5-.75 range (more likely the latter or closer to it). Now what you did mention about that happening I do agree with you that that does just not with LBJ. It's happened with a lot of other the players in the league Richard Jefferson being one (he himself admitted he's 6'6") when he is also shorter than Lebron and only maybe an inch or inch and half taller than a legit 195cm guy like Vince Carter (RJ called Vince 6'4 1/2, 6'5" on a good day).john wall looks like another and also I believe it happened with Wade as well as he doesn't look like 192cm. Looks 190 next to guys like Ray Allen or other Heat players as well as Next to Melo.

Christian-196cm (6ft5.25in) said on 18/Aug/16
jake claiming that Lebron is no taller than 6'5" is silly. What's even funnier is that he says Lebron got his out of bed height measured by the NBA. That's impossible because the Predraft measurements always take place around noon time. While I know that noon heights aren't the lowest heights of the day, if Lebron was measured at 6'7.25" at daytime, he should be a flat 6'7" during nighttime or at worst 6'6.75".
-------------------------------------------------------

Nah you wrong the status of the individual matters in the draft, you don't get just get picked randomly to do your thing, you think they just do there thing alphabetically nah you get the timetable of what time you do your physical weeks in advance and I no people who can vouch for this. LeBrons mom is real bossy she has her spoilt 18year old son 6'6" max put on paper as 6'7 1/4"

It's hard to tell. To my eye LeBron doesn't seem to edge Love in that picture, but they could look the same. I could be wrong, though.

That picture nicely confirms LeBron's listing on this site; he looks exactly half an inch shorter than Love.

"Lebron James' Height is 6ft 6 7/8th in (200.3 cm)"

At times he can look 6ft7+, but he looks a little under the mark more often than not.

Brandon is correct in that he looks 6'7 or "about/weak 6'7"
Animus said on 24/Nov/16
@marc

I think it's fairly unlikely that LeBron grew after he was drafted (at most 1/4 of an inch). His physical maturation was extremely swift; he was essentially a boy in a man's body by the time he was 16. He also looks noticeably shorter than Durant (~6'9.5") and not much taller than Carmelo Anthony (6'6.25").

This listing seems accurate.
Brandon said on 24/Nov/16
Looks 6'7" to me.
Canson said on 21/Nov/16
no chance he's only 6'5. He's very close to 6'7 at his lowest if not a full 6'7. Easily has 2" on Kobe and Cam Newton and CM to half inch on Carmelo. Absolute lowest is maybe 6'6.75
123 said on 20/Nov/16
I was just commenting on that kobe page about people who get drafted straight out of high school put there bodies through wear and tear quicker,they put more mileage on the clock when they still should be getting more experienced without the rigour of playing ball with grown men at the highest level, for this reason I always saw lebrons prime being from mid twenties to early thirty's, I think its safe to say from this point onwards he can't surpass MJ LOL infact I think its been safe to say that for the past few years even

Canson said on 21/Sep/16
James is spot on.

@123: Personally never saw Kobe a full 6'5 bf at his low especially after he was measured, but he is without a doubt definitely weak 6'5 like James said. Rob's definition of weak is 1/3-1/4 below the mark. I'd personally call anything 194.3-194.9 (6'4.5-.75) weak 6'5 if those are later measurements because he is closer to 6'5 than he is solid 6'4. him saying he is 6'4 was less him downplaying his height or lying and more him saying "I'm not really 6'7" like he was listed when he had the Afro or even the 6'6 he was customarily listed as throughout his career. He "likely" said he's 6'5 in shoes because if he falls to that weak 6'5 zone he'd be 6'5.5-6'6 in sneaks def closer to 6'6 but not full I doubt unless in a thicker "Jordan like" sneaker".
James said on 18/Sep/16
@123 Look at pics of Kobe with Piqué. Piqué is around 192-192.5 cm and Kobe around 195 cm more or less.
123 said on 16/Sep/16
James the reason I say that is he is only a couple of inches taller than Kobe who claims six-four and six-five in shoes remember that article in 2009 now this was straight out of the horses mouth @canson I don't understand what your saying "generalizing" the word doesn't even fit in the sentance properly to make the sentace make sense imho
James said on 12/Sep/16
@123 Why do you think that? LeBron was measured without shoes and listed as 201 cm... Maybe morning height? I think most of the time LeBron is 2 metres tall, he is a legit 2 metres tall man.
Canson said on 10/Sep/16
@123:Kobe was generalizing to that kid when he spoke with him. He isn't by any means only a flat 6'4. Saying he isn't 6'7 like once listed that he is shorter. He's in the mid to high 6'4 range so 6'4.5-.75 range which makes him a weak 6'5. He isn't below that
123 said on 9/Sep/16
@Steve5 LOL why would kobe lie about how tall he is face it kobes 6'4 so the other ball players heights should be adjusted accordingly. LeBron is NOT 6'7 he is 6'6 two inches shorter than Kobe who claims 6'4 and 6'5 in sneakers
Canson said on 8/Sep/16
@Steve5: we can agree Kobe isn't a flat 6'4. But if you see pics with Jamal Crawford he is the same height as him and Crawford was measured 6'4.5. Problem with this site is people here or see someone measure 192 CM and proclaim themselves 6'4 even if it were early in the morning. And outside of Celebheights anyone will claim what they measure sure they even round up. But I will give you a good example.

Christian6'5.25 (196cm) below vs me. I wake up 195.9-196, Christian wakes up 198.3 as he stated. So if I go to a doctor at 8am after waking at 7 (generally someone our size loses roughly a CM 3/8" after an hour). I'd be 6'4.75 and not think twice if I had no knowledge it varied or had never measured in the after noon. So by about noon I'm down to maybe 194.2 then 194 (6'4 3/8) by 2 or 3pm. Christian is 196.2 by 3pm 6'5.25. So Christian and I on a normal day are 7/8" apart in height but if I claim 6'5 that by deduction (to most people) would make Christian 6'6 when in reality he measured 6'5.25 and may have never measured himself in the morning or care to claim his morning height. That's how it is with Kobe. Kobe is between 6'5.25-.5 out of bed 6'4.5-.75 at night. So yes he will look 6'5 or more when someone else receives an eye opener at 6'4 like James Harden who is really 6'3.5 range in the afternoon because truthfully people nowadays believe the person who claims or is listed on a predraft at a certain height. So if Harden measured 6'4 in the AM or 6'3 7/8 then he can claim it no problem. If Kobe measured 6'4.5-.75 in the afternoon he is more than welcome to claim it as well.
Steve5 said on 8/Sep/16
@123 If Kobe says he's 6'4 once, why does that make it righter than a guy who says they're their listed height? You don't think it's possible that an NBA player could claim a lower height than they actually are?

Canson said on 3/Sep/16
@Joe: I agree with Christian now that ive seen more pics in that Cam's more like 195 CM. I used to think he was a legit 6'5 but That makes sense too if the measurement was done a couple hours out of bed he'd have been 6'5 flat and likely 6'5.5 out of bed.
Canson said on 3/Sep/16
@123: more like a legit 200 at his lowest. He honestly looks 6'7 in person from what most people (including Cam Newton) said. So he'd likely be maybe 6'6.75 at his lowest or bare min. He could lose an inch at his size very easily.

@MD: I agree that the pic with Curry is a bad call. That's an easy 3+ there. And the pic with Kobe favors him. I would've expected Cam taller than Kobe but At worst I'd say he and Kobe are the same height or that there wouldn't be much difference between them that a camera would pick up for us to detect if Kobe (who has claimed 6'4.5 and 6'4.75 both) and Cam was measured 6'5 (even if it was in the morning).

Canson said on 27/Aug/16
@Christian: about 230lbs and 194cm flat at my lowest (I class myself 6'4 1/2 usually or 6'4 and a little bit).

@Nick: I am not seeing what you are. Your pics put Cam at a disadvantage esp with Kobe. The camera makes Kobe look taller and bigger as it is squarely on him. I don't think you intentionally did this, but I've seen many others here on Celebheights who actually do it knowingly and use it as evidence to make someone taller. I'd say at worst Kobe is not taller than Cam and they are the same height but honesty believe Cam would edge him out as he is closer to the 6'5 mark than Kobe is. Kobe has called himself 6'4.5 and 6'4.75 before both. So between 194-195 since 195 is 6'4.77". Also, In one pic with Steph he clearly is at least 3 if not 3.5 inches taller. Even with him tilting his head he is physically taller than curry as you can see it in the shoulders and build. I'd say At worst, Cam is 6'4.75 at his lowest and Christian is on point with what he said. He will always look taller because he is longer and more muscular than others his size. On a side note My cousin has a 6'5 friend who has met Cam and in the pic they looked about identical (I couldn't see a difference but then again I don't know if the 6'5 friend is a legit 6'5 or under or over but the two looked similar so at worst I don't see him below 6'4.75.

Bogans is close in height with me. Ford is 5'10, Hinrich looked to me 6'2 ranfe more than almost 6'3 but maybe bad posture or shoes. Lebron looks a hair over Melo but like a 1/2". Now don't know about Cam. They all got measured in the afternoon earlier on but Cam may have been morning in 2010. I'd say at worst he's no lower than 6'4.75 in the early evening but next to Brady whos close in height with another poster who is my height he looks taller. I can see Brady being 6'4-6'4.25 at night and Cam may appear much taller because of his build. Cam for a 6'5 guy is built similar (proportionately) as I am at 6'4. whereas Brady looks average build for a 6'4 guy from a difference.

@Christian: not sure on Cam. He at least to me, looks a legit 6'5 guy. Especially when I see him next to Tom Brady and some of the other taller QBs. He called Lebron 6'7 but it could be rounding up since he calls himself 6'5 and was measured at that. But you may be right. In my honest opinion Lebron looks a weak 6'7. The pic with Cam is inconclusive. Could be 2 full inches or a weak 2 but with him next to a guy like Boozer or Love he looks shorter and he doesn't look more than maybe 1/2" taller (at most) than Carmelo Anthony does. Melo when I met him had me by 1.5-2" so he for sure isn't under 6'6 flat and likely is the full 6'6.25"

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

You're spot on with Carmello Click Here Here he was measured 6ft6.25 barefoot and 6ft7.5 with shoes (which I'm assuming took place in the PM) As for Cam, he may or may not be a legit 6ft5 (I'm still not sure) but it's safe to say he's not anything above that, because his Combine result said "6050", which means 6'5" on the dot.

You're spot on with Carmello Click Here Here he was measured 6ft6.25 barefoot and 6ft7.5 with shoes (which I'm assuming took place in the PM) As for Cam, he may or may not be a legit 6ft5 (I'm still not sure) but it's safe to say he's not anything above that, because his Combine result said "6050", which means 6'5" on the dot. Click Here Whether he was measured earlier in the day or late afternoon, IDK

King James is holding 6'6.75 through out the day. 6'6.25 just a morning draft measurement
Canson said on 21/Aug/16
@Christian: not sure on Cam. He at least to me, looks a legit 6'5 guy. Especially when I see him next to Tom Brady and some of the other taller QBs. He called Lebron 6'7 but it could be rounding up since he calls himself 6'5 and was measured at that. But you may be right. In my honest opinion Lebron looks a weak 6'7. The pic with Cam is inconclusive. Could be 2 full inches or a weak 2 but with him next to a guy like Boozer or Love he looks shorter and he doesn't look more than maybe 1/2" taller (at most) than Carmelo Anthony does. Melo when I met him had me by 1.5-2" so he for sure isn't under 6'6 flat and likely is the full 6'6.25"

Id say at worst a full 200cm. If not a full 201

-----

If Lebeon's a couple inches (5cm) taller than Cam Newton, then he should be about 200cm, not 201cm. I personally think that Cam's 6ft4.75 (195) rather than a full 6ft5 (196) despite his combine measurment saying otherwise. I mean, he barely looks taller than 6ft4.5 (194) Colin Kaepernick. Sometimes Cam looks even a bit shorter (probably he had thinner footwear) Click Here
I'm assuming Cam was measured earlier in the day before he dropped a quarter inch.

@Christian: Truthfully, if the person measured it they measured it but to someone who measures at a later time they would be a fraction less. Maybe not 1/2" but between 1/4-1/2". Not all are measured in the AM. I read an article on Curry's page that it was definite beginning in 2009. So if a person measured at 630am or 7 am after being up a hour then yea they are shorter in the afternoon. I am uncertain on Lebron. It was said he wasn't measured. He looks a legit 6'7 imho or a weak 6'7 at worst. I've met four players from the 2003 class and they all appear close to their measured heights so I think you're right in 2003 the combine was in the afternoon or maybe late morning.

@Canson So you're saying that all NBA athletes are about half an inch shorter than their official measurements?
Canson said on 19/Aug/16
@Christian: the pre drafts (at least every year since 2009) have been bright and early 6am or so. Check out the article by Sportsheight on Steph Curry's page. And the Blake griffin video along with tweets with times from guys like Curry. But you're right on out of bed. The players likely lost at least 1/4-3/8" (of 3/4) before being measured. My guess someone like Curry was 6'2 pre draft height couldve measured 6'2 flat or 6'1 7/8 (there are no 1/8 increments) in the NBA. I know from a pro scout that the rounding and sometimes other tactics are done. If 1 hr out of bed he could be as low as 6'1 1/2 by the end of the day. But the order of the activities changes each year.
joe### said on 18/Aug/16
Yes 6'7 night may be their low or sometimes he also drops posture
6'7.25 is good listing him.
Christian-196cm (6ft5.25in) said on 18/Aug/16
jake claiming that Lebron is no taller than 6'5" is silly. What's even funnier is that he says Lebron got his out of bed height measured by the NBA. That's impossible because the Predraft measurements always take place around noon time. While I know that noon heights aren't the lowest heights of the day, if Lebron was measured at 6'7.25" at daytime, he should be a flat 6'7" during nighttime or at worst 6'6.75".
Canson said on 17/Aug/16
@Joe: right. I agree he isn't anything close to 6'5 like someone said but he's likely a solid 6'7 or even a weak 6'7 at his lowest. People say he's 6'8 because of who he is
Christian-196cm (6ft 5.25in) said on 17/Aug/16
200cm and 202cm are both arguable heights for James.
joe### said on 15/Aug/16
6'8? Kevin durant has towers on it
Captain America said on 6/Aug/16
LMAO at those idiot who thinks that LeBron is under 6'7. He's closer to 6'8" than 6'5". You need to get a new pair of glasses if you think he's under 6'7".
Canson said on 5/Aug/16
@James: you are absolutely right and like I said on Kobe's page I apologize to you and 184cm. But you see me getting angry. It's because you both have taken "little pieces and nuggets" from my posts and used a one liner (not the entire thought) to try to make me look bad or belittle. That's where me using the "retarded" and name calling began. You saw where the tone changed from me saying "I respect your opinion" to that. And 184guy didn't help it getting involved. If you want to argue use facts. Don't use people's phrases and embellish them. Let's end it. We can continue to debate but do so respectfully. That's what makes the experience on this site what it is and it is only respectful to Rob and the other users.
James said on 5/Aug/16
@ First of all calm down. There is a logical fallacy called argument ad hominem:
Click Here

Please stop saying "you don't appear very intelligent" or disrespectful things like that. Just relax, don't take so seriously this discussion.

I didn't upgrade Bolt! There is another "James" user. By the way, I downgraded Harrison Ford. I think we will agree that Ford was never as tall as 185 cm. 184 cm at most IMO.

"do I know of any celebs that are listed "under" their real height?" Yep, that was the question. Not the "actual", but "under" their real height. For example Gareth Bale is officially listed as 6' 0'' at Real Madrid.com and I think he is a bit over that mark. Anyway, I see you responded with Kevin Durant. OK.

"Why would the NFL or NBA, especially since you are putting this on Lebron's page and the celebs you challenge me on (MJ Kobe and Lebron) downgrade one of their players? Why would they purposely under measure or underlist their players?" We are not discussing NBA official listings but Rob guesses.

Again Canson don't take it so seriously. Before responding in "angry mode" just think that this is only an interesting debate.
Leonardo 173cm said on 4/Aug/16
How tall is he after of 5-6 hours? Rob?
Editor Rob: Lebron seems a guy who may well have squeezed out another cm and so even though nba get measured earlier in the day, he might still fall into the 6ft 7 and change at his lowest, because 6ft 7.5 range is arguable at times for him.
Canson said on 2/Aug/16
@James: do I know of any celebs that are listed "under" their real height? Are you really asking me this or are you asking me do I know of any celebs that are listed at their "actual" height? The latter yes. Many. Go look at KG or Durant (I put Durant 6'9.5 so yes) Stern, Kareem Wilt or Padelecki. But Out of any person or comment I have seen on this website with the exception of Ronster, this by far is the dumbest statement that I have seen. why would someone in their right mind undermine how tall they are? No it doesn't not happen as often as you insinuate (like your conspiracy theory for Charles Barkley), Why do you "want" and insist people to be taller than they are or than they are listed? Why would the NFL or NBA, especially since you are putting this on Lebron's page and the celebs you challenge me on (MJ Kobe and Lebron) downgrade one of their players? Why would they purposely under measure or underlist their players? You seriously have no common sense whatsoever. Can you answer this question please because every retarded one or every retarded point you make to me repetitively to me I answer back and you always seem to evade the most obvious fact about yourself?
Canson said on 1/Aug/16
@james:

First of all let's just cut the crap. you are sounding dumber now with every post that you have and it is obvious you have run out of attacks that you are now just making stuff up. I'll save you from it now. But I'm curious too. Why Do you upgrade everyone? You upgraded Bolt, Kobe, and Barkley. and no I didn't downgrade Lebron, I didn't downgrade Kobe. I did downgrade Bolt because I don't genuinely believe he is 6'4 3/4 not when Kobe Barkley Jordan and Manning are all taller than he is. But no, I don't do what you do. I don't inflate someone else with the person like Bolt just to make him 6'5. You do however. You went as far as to say Kobe is 6'6 (oh please see your delicate quote below). Kobe already said hes 6'4 3/4. I mean I know you wish and fantasize every night that you could make him taller but you cant. and btw, I argued to Jake that Lebron is around 6'7. I don't see you lashing out at anyone else who does it. On every page where you accuse me of downgrading there is at least one or two people who guess them lower than me. That's right lower than the 1/4-1/2 I knocked off someone like MJ. But nope. You don't say anything to them. Didnt hear you say anything to Jake below or to Alex or anyone else who listed Kobe or Jordan at 193. And Btw, I didn't downgrade Kobe. 6'4.75 that Rob has him listed is 194.945cm, it isn't a full 195. I did say hes between 194 and 195 right? I mean you tell me? Not everyone has to "round" numbers up like you do just to make someone taller. But Obviously its because you don't appear very intelligent. I mean You repeat the same things over and over with no basis or substance. You mock people with nothing to mock them for. You simply make a fool out of yourself as Height pointed out what I said. You sound like a broken record. You cant read or comprehend what you read. You can't convert cm. It's looking more and more that you are now just attacking me because you keep getting called out. Next time don't start something you can't finish. If you want to argue a point, that is fine, argue it. I mean you claim Kobe isn't what Rob has him listed, if you believe that it is fine. What is the difference between making someone a cm taller vs 0.5 cm shorter (at max)? There is none either way the man claimed 6'4 1/2 and 6'4 3/4 so I think his word means more than your fantasy for him. and btw Kevin Durant, I upgraded as a matter of fact and said 6'9.5 and KG said he was 6'11, Shaq 7' as Rob lists him as well. So no I don't downgrade every celeb. Quit exaggerating things just to try to belittle people and to cover up your own flaws. you do realize that every time that you attack me you end up looking like the stupid fool you are. Nothing you say is ever valid, it is exaggerated and you call downgrading someone 1/4-1/2 downgrading? No it is simply an opinion. Why are you so fascinated with upgrading people? Do you fantasize about Kobe Bryant at night wishing he were truly 196 CM or 198 CM? of course you upgrade Barkley and say hes 6'7 in shoes and that he "downplays" his height. Every teammate of his pegs him at 6'4 and now there is proof showing Kobe is taller than he is so no he isn't 6'7 in shoes. So enough of the crap unless you want to continue just making "false" "inaccurate" "exaggerated" blanket statements that you make just to make yourself feel valued and important.

James said on 20/Mar/14
Bolt can be a full 6'5" and still an inch to inch and a half shorter than Charles Barkley. Barkley is 6'7" in b-ball shoes. As I have said many times, Chuck purposefully lowers his stated height to heighten his rebounding accomplishments! I think the picture of Bolt with Kobe looks dead on. 6'5" and 6'6" respectfully. Has anyone seen Bolt dunk? He does it with absolute EASE!

Funny how you now said Kobe may even be 194.5 at his lowest and were saying 196 before. Let's stick with 604.75 (194.945)

@jake: that's the notion that people have on this site that when someone downgrades them that that person is a hater. Not true at all. I respect you a lot for making the judgment you did because at least you aren't someone who always upgrades people. I can see Lebron lower myself to be honest but maybe 1/2". Now I'm not a supporter but I've heard enough ppl who have met him say he's nearer 6'7. And see how he looks on he court.

Canson said on 22/Jun/16
Cam called him 6'7" as well when he was interviewed about who is the better player between Lebron and Steph curry

jake said on 1/Jul/16
canson I'm still not convinced sorry I just think very tall people would lose more height than just a inch, I think for sure LeBron dips below 6'6 and he was given a fresh out of bed measurement of 6'7 1/4 , 6'5 3/4 though mid afternoon onwards 6'5 1/2 in dead of night. LeBron six-five range. And most importantly to me he look it

James said on 27/Jul/16
@Canson Just curious... do you downgrade everybody? Can you name a celebrity who you consider is listed UNDER his real height?
Canson said on 22/Jul/16
I agree with Height. He may have been the 260 in Miami but he was noticeably bigger then. They showed before and after of him when he returned to Cleveland. Maybe additional muscle would put him at 250 (that's what they estimated him when he lost the weight or 245 to be more specific). But 260 or even 270 is Karl Malone territory or Anthony mason like Height said. He looks more along the lines of Melo who is prob 240 himself
Height said on 21/Jul/16
@jake @Canson it's a possibility that he is 260, but then again you see someone like Kobe listed at 205 when he really is in the 210s or MJ still being listed at 198 in 92 and 93 when he was more 210, for example. Lebron being listed at 260 sounds more to add to his myth of "he's a beast". To me, 260 at that size is more in the Larry Johnson (Post 1996) / Anthony Mason body department. Lebron, especially the past 2 or 3 seasons has slimmed down and doesn't look massive, maybe more like 240 max like Canson said.
jake said on 20/Jul/16
Height said on 18/Jul/16
I don't believe NBA weights, Lebron doesn't even look 250 now. More in the 235 range
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
as I mentioned before lebrons skeletal structuce is quite broad "big boned" he has wide clavicles and a big skull/head size 260 pounds a real possibility 235 pounds is way to low
Canson said on 19/Jul/16
Lebron may actually be near or at a full 6'7 taking into account he's leaning in the Olympic pic. Kidd is also leaning and the diff with Wade is more pronounced than it really is.

Howard: 206 cm
Bosh: 210 cm (he is taller than Howard in reality)
Prince: 203cm
Boozer: 202cm
Lebron:200-200.5
Melo: 198.8
Kobe: 194.5-195
Redd: 193-194
Kidd:189.5
Wade:190-191
Canson said on 19/Jul/16
@Height: he was said to be as much as 260-270 in Miami. I can see maybe 260 at 6'7 but not 270. He and MWP both supposedly were that high and MWP being about an inch and a half shorter you can see it on but not him. If I had to guess he's really in the 240s (same as he was when he came in maybe slightly toward the top) just with more muscle and reduced fat
Height said on 18/Jul/16

Canson said on 17/Jul/16
i think he'd measure 202+ out of bed with ease. Prob 6'7.5-.75 and would drop to 6'6.5-.75 at his size. He has a relatively good sized torso as well and isn't all legs like some of the other 6'7 guys
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Jake: they said he was 260 in Miami. They mentioned 250 (they showed him with before and after pics) now but I agree that he didn't really gain weight since he came in the league he's bulked up and yep muscle weighs more than far
jake said on 16/Jul/16
@ joe lebron weighs about 260 now he used to have better muscle definition as a youth his muscles haven't gotten THAT much bigger since 18 its just they now have a thin layer of fat over them which they didn't before lebron is now 10-13%bodyfat 13%ish of season. At 18 he was no more than 6% body fat max he used to be cut as f**ck, and don't forget fat weighs less than muscle.......
Dawkins said on 15/Jul/16
202 cm out of bed, 200 cm at night.
Joe said on 13/Jul/16
I'm very skeptical of Lebron's pre-draft measurements. He supposedly weighed in at 245 pounds, 5 pounds heavier than Dwight Howard and only 3 pounds lighter than Blake Griffin. I can't fathom how he weighed that much at 18, when he looked thin compared to his current self, who weighs about 250 (not the ridiculous 6'9'', 270 that you'll hear sometimes).

Either way, I think he's in the 6'7'' to 6'7.5'' range several hours after he wakes up. 6'7.25'' seems to be the most reasonable estimate.
Canson said on 4/Jul/16
@Jake: the million dollar question is was he measured at all? Sure he could've been it's possible. But is he shorter than or the same height as Carmelo Anthony is the other. I can see Melo dropping to 6'5.75 only on a day where he has "severely compressed" and has weight lifted. I have met him and he looked (a rarity based on what I've seen) his height he's listed in his pre draft. It's possible Lebron isn't the strong 6'7 in reality and I can believe it but 6'5.75 on a daily basis is way too small. At least in my eyes. You're entitled to your opinion of course. He'd be Reggie millers size and he's taller than Reggie

@Shane: you make a really strong point there and I like your response. That is true that you at least claim barefoot not shoes. In a pinch someone may think 6'2 is a shoe height but that's the norm in the US. Wasn't disagreeing 100%. Was just saying that if one appears taller
Shane said on 4/Jul/16
Sorry for all the typos. Another thought came to mind: 98% of the general public would likely not even consider whether it was someones morning height or average height and they have probably never even heard of the terms. Most people dont even know are heights differ dueing the course of a day. Those of us here are the exception in terms of putting this much thought and scrutiny into this topic.
Canson said on 4/Jul/16
@Jake: the morning height argument that's made, I don't know how I would class that. What's your view?I've always viewed it as you come out where you should at the end of the day but Shane has a point as far as you "could" measure it but I look at it from a standpoint of let's say two people wake up two different body types. One wakes at 6'7.75 let's say and the other 6'7 but both end at 6'6.25 for the day. I'd say they're both same height. Shane, what's your view on that specifically and when I mention this I'm talking their height without compression meaning what you would normally see in the mid to late afternoon before serious compression kicks in from being on feet etc. i mean, It's a logical point you made and that's something that has stood out more to me when you compare people your own height to you (assuming they aren't claiming shoes). I'll see some "6'4" guys that are maybe 1/2" or less shorter than me as they should be but then I see some where they (from my eyes at least) must get measured an hour after they wake up and often get rounded to 6'4" by a doctor nurse etc because they look 6'3 maybe 6'3 and a hair at the end of the day. The go to with them is always 6'3 and 3/4". My cousin is a prime example of this as he measured something like 6'1 5/8 (he was military and they measured him in the AM) and he calls himself 6'2 all the time but never looks it always looks 6'1 next to me and even his "legit 6'2.5" brother. What's your view? I guess technically nobody is wrong really
Shane said on 4/Jul/16
@Canson I dont agree that morning height people would lose a,lot of arguments. For one, so many people are used to hearing people claim shoe heights theyd likely assume the 6'2 height was barefoot or at worst an accurate in shoe height. Either way we are nitpicking to a large degree. I mean, so many in the US claim and in shoe height the barefoot only people should be thrilled if people will use any barefoot height as their gauge -- it is afterall an absolutely real, honest height even if its not the time of day a few people on here prefer (with compression when not rull height rather than checking a person full height.) By the way, I'm 6'2 barefoot and have never been guessed less than that but many times have been guessed higher even though ive typically claimed my 6'3 shoe height (but i normally specify to people and let them know if im talking with or without shoe height). Hey, i played high school and college sports and got used to the shoe heights,so sue me :)
jake said on 3/Jul/16
ok ok canson but lebron dips below 6'6 in the late afternoon and also i think he would of got measured straight out of bed because of his status he had coming in the draft being prophesied as the next michael jordan you got to be kidding me no #1 draft pick who else had that same status in that draft he even got that nike contract for millions when he was still in high school! that he spent on a hummer so yeah the most important people in the draft could get measured first lebrons agent pulled some strings he proberly did sleep in the same room as measurements were held LOL. btw i'm not a lebron hater at all he has naturally broad shoulders (wide clavicles) so that contributes to his impressive wingspan/standing and reach
Canson said on 2/Jul/16
@Height: I have to agree with you on the CM being the better vehicle esp when comparing two guys perhaps a Melo and a Lebron, who are close in height. I'd give Melo the 198.8 and Lebron maybe 199.5-.8. At times Lebron can appear to have a bit on him- near the inch other times he is the same or not noticeably taller.
Canson said on 2/Jul/16
I love some of the comments I see below especially by fanboys like Lebron6. Love it how "we can't see their shoes". Lol. Why is it that when it comes to making someone taller than they are or someone wants them to be taller shoes all of a sudden become important? It's the same across all these pages. When someone mentions "oh what if he measured at night or we can't see their shoes, etc" I seriously think those people have insecurity issues with their own height or they are so infatuated with a player that they will lose sleep because their "idol" or "Sign other" isn't the height they want them to be. It's ridiculous. What does an inch matter for anyone even a basketball player? Doesn't make them a better player as we've seen
Canson said on 1/Jul/16
@Jake: fair enough and you are certainly entitled to your opinion. But logic is what I'm saying. One thing I will say over all my years is that I have many basketball players I have met and only a few line up to their pre draft measurements. I've seen some where it's way off (shoe measurement put in under wrong column) and others that are simply morning measurements and 1/2" off, so believe me I'm not advocating someone being taller than they really are. But we also have to use common sense here! Lebron was supposedly never measured at all (like I mentioned below). The verdict is out on that. He said he wasn't measured after he surpassed 6'6. Two, he wouldn't lose 1.5" by afternoon. That's when he'd go to bed. If he is abnormally built maybe he'd be 6'6.25 if he was really 6'7.25 out of bed in the afternoon. Three,does he not look significantly taller than draymond green? Let's say green is a morning measurement, worst and I mean absolute worst case scenario is he is 6'5 flat (Alvin gentry did say he's closer to 6'5 than 6'6 so my guess is he is 6'5.25 in the afternoon and 6'6 out of bed which is the norm for someone his size but let's call him 6'5 flat). Lebron is easily at least an inch and a half but my money is 4-5 cm. meaning Lebron has to be near 6'7. At worst he's a very very strong 6'6 like darn near 200 cm (199.5 at his lowest). #3 how does he (still) at the end of the day look a good 2" taller than someone like Vince Carter or Kobe? May even be a full 5 cm as both those guys are 194 range (under 195). And the latter (i guarantee) don't lose an inch and a half. They're my height. Same build etc. I wake to 196 and am 194-194.1 at night. Usually .75-.8 loss. That's prob around the same for both of them maybe give or take 0.5 cm. meaning they may drop to 6'4.5-625. Also, if Lebron was measured when he woke up, it would mean he slept in the room where they hold the measurements. I doubt that's his out of bed. At least 1/4" more he'd be at least 6'7.5

LeBron dips below six-six in the mid afternoon
Canson said on 1/Jul/16
@Jake: if you look at him next to Carmelo Anthony there is no way that Lebron would be 197cm. I've met Melo in person. If he isn't a full 6'6.25 like listed he is for sure at least a solid 6'6. He had me (Im generally 6'4 3/8 at my lowest) by a good inch and a half Maybe 2" (of course I didn't see footwear but at worst he is 6'6" flat and he isn't taller than Lebron I doubt).
Canson said on 1/Jul/16
@Jake: guys Lebron's size don't lose that kind of height. I have 6'7 friends and 6'6. They lose marginally more than me (I lose 3/4 they lose an inch). My 6'7 friend is 6'7 3/4-6'7 7/8 in the morning and is 6'6 3/4-7/8 at night. The 6'6 friend is 6'6 3/4 morning and sometimes still Pretty darn close to 6'6 flat at night at worst maybe 6'5.75 if something out of the blue is the absolute lowest I've heard him measure where as I've lost 1.15" on one occasion after lifting and being on my feet and was practically right at 6'4 flat. But for Lebron, someone here mentioned they met him and that he was slightly shorter in the evening (the poster said at night he's 6'7 flat) meaning Lebron may come down to 6'6.5. But the pre drafts are never "right out of bed". I'd guess close to 1/4" (at least 1/8") is already lost and that would be one of the first guys to measure. So if we knock 1/4 off I'd give Lebron at least 202 out of bed. Minimum. Whether 6'7.5 or 6'7.75 (also possible) and he comes down to 6'6.5-6'6.75 (between 199-200). No way he is 6'5.75 (that's the same height as Wes Unseld or Reggie Miller would be normally) and only slightly taller than Metta world peace. He has Metta by an inch maybe 1.5"
Canson said on 29/Jun/16
@Jake: either way Shane has a point. Lebron wouldn't measure that low. I'd be willing to say he's even earlier in the day a legit 202 at least and prob 199-200 at his absolute lowest.
Canson said on 29/Jun/16
@Shane the only issue is when you have one claiming their norm the other claiming their "inflated" height who wins the argument? IMHO if I didn't know any better and had never visited this website I wouldn't really know as much. So if I'm 6'4.5 like I am and a 6'2 guy claims 6'3 then I'd call him on it (I'd call him on it even knowing what I know). Now 1/2" yes I can see but one inch is bs. The one claiming the out of bed height would lose the argument 10 times out of 10 especially if the other person is someone who doesn't lie about their height
jake said on 29/Jun/16
@shane I sure hope you don't lose any sleep 💤 over the "what time is real height" debate your gonna need all the sleep you can for the next time you get measured ;-). anyways back to the big guy his lanky ass is 197cm for most of the day
Shane said on 29/Jun/16
@Jake: yes if a person can stand flat footed barefoot to a certain height they absolutely can legit claim it. They are afterall that tall as is obvious. No reason not to.
Canson said on 24/Jun/16
Height made a good point about Lebron looking smaller next to some guys which is why he can look under 6'7. This Dream Team pic below is weird tho because he looks barely taller than Melo not enough for an inch but looks a half inch to 3/4 shorter than 6'7.75 boozer. I think 6'7 flat may be the compromise

Jake: i think the category you're referring to is 6'9-6'10 and above. That's more gigantic. You know. The guys who are 6'11 or 7'0 to the general public because of all the height frauding and perception. Those guys lose the 1 1/2". A guy 6'6-6'8 would prob lose an inch regularly and maybe 1.5" at an extreme low meaning on the grind. Now body type could play a factor. As an experiment once I went to the gym wasn't hydrated much and stayed out late on my feet past midnight.
jake said on 23/Jun/16
as I was saying extremely tall people lose more height its typical of a man LeBrons height to lose a good one and a half inches throughout the day, LeBron measured 6'7 1/4 fresh out of bed, so his real height is 6'5 3/4, LeBron is six-five range 197cm. LOL @ Shane saying your height fresh out of bed is real height when you can only mantain that for five minutes out of the whole day!
Canson said on 22/Jun/16
Cam called him 6'7" as well when he was interviewed about who is the better player between Lebron and Steph curry
Canson said on 22/Jun/16
I saw other pics similar to what Duhon posted with Cam and Lebron. That is actually close to 2". At first you can't tell because Cam's head is tilted up but others it looks near 2" at absolute worst 1.5". It's hard to tell because Lebron's forehead is so big. But Cam's exactly 6'5 according to his draft bio so Lebron has to be very close to 6'7 if not a full on. Only uncertainty is whether Lebron was actually measured. If he was 6'7.25 it could have been earlier measurement than Cam received which could cover the difference if not a full 2
Canson said on 22/Jun/16
@Shane: I totally agree with you. What also throws it off are other "potentially" unmeasured players that we may be comparing him to. But I will say if he wasn't measured the NBA did a great job because he looks near 6'7 to most at worst a very strong 6'6"
Height said on 22/Jun/16
@Shane @Canson

To me everything is better settled in cms.

I know for a fact that anyone from 200 cm to 202 cm can be called 6'7", but I also reckon that anyone from 198 cm to 200 cm can be called 6'6.5". These are two examples of how opinion varies from one coach/scout/teammate/author/journalist to another.

6'6.75" and 6'7" at the end of the day is still inside 200 cm
Shane said on 22/Jun/16
Good points Canson... if he was indeed measured then we have a,very good idea of his height or height range. If not - or until we know for sure either way - the speculation will continue.

Question is was he really measured at the pre draft? If he was I can buy it. He Just may not look it to some people if it was an early morning esp if others comparing weren't measured as early as he was. But He also said once he hit 6'6 he wasn't again and with Kevin Love and Carlos Boozer he is a good inch shorter esp with the latter. Remember Kobe also has a pre draft measurement in the books and he skipped his. But I think it's fair to say hes well over 6'6 flat (RJ admitted he's 6'6 and LBJ is taller and LBJ is at least as tall as Melo but usually averages a cm more in pics maybe 1/2". At times he can honestly look a full 6'7 but others he can look a bit lower but high enough to where he rounding is appropriate enough. I mean even if he's an average or a low of 6'6.75 most people aren't going to argue that he can't claim 6'7. To be honest he prob would be closer to 6'7 than 6'6 even if he is below it

Duhon said on 27/Mar/15
He measured at 6'7.25" barefoot as an 18 year old. It's ridiculous the posts trying to say he is under 6'7" now.

---

He's the same height he was when he was 18. He was a grown man at that age, he was always an early maturer. But he hasn't shrunk! 6'7.25" is his height, and probably will be for at least the next 2 decades.
Canson said on 18/Jun/16
@Shane: agree he would measure more than 6'5 3/4 esp if he woke to 6'7. He's prob right at 200 cm. He looks an inch shorter than Kevin love or Carlos boozer. 6'6 1/2-3/4 is spot on for him
Shane said on 17/Jun/16
@Jake... no, if he was measured 6'7" 1/4 barefoot then it counts as 6'7" 1/4. Thats his true max real height. Saying that isnt legit is ridiculous. If one can measure it without shoes its absolutely legitimate.
Shane said on 17/Jun/16
@Height... thanks... I would not be surprised if it indeed was the case that LeBron was not actually measured at predraft canp and the 6'7" 1/4 was essentially made up. As you said, he looks shorter than that in several photos with Magic. The Team USA photo looks well done and on an even plane, etc with nobody in front of another and he looks Carmelo's height there. Furthermore, he looks to give up more than 3 inches in a plethora of photos with Durant, especially in the one poolside where James has a very clear footwear advantage and still looks several inches shorter.
Duhon said on 17/Jun/16
LeBron was also measured at 6'7.25" as an 18 year old. He looks to have grown to near a barefoot 6'8" since that time. LeBron never looks like a "weak" 6'7" next to almost anyone.
jake said on 15/Jun/16
lebron was measures at 6'7 1/4 which would of been fresh out of bed as is the case with basketball players drafted, extremely tall people can easily

loose one and a half inches throughout the day ergo lebron is 6'5 3/4 before bed ergo lebron his real height is 6'6 FLAT no more. six-six is 198cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/16
202cm, Rob?
Height said on 14/Jun/16
@Shane I think people have those theories because Lebron tends to look a little shorter next to guys that are in the 6'7.25" - 6'7.5" (201cm-202 cm) range like Magic or Pippen.

I have come to know that he stopped measuring himself when he reached a legit 6'6" (the listed height of his childhood idol, MJ), and this was when he was about 17. Add to this the fact that he doesn't look 1 inch taller than Carmelo Anthony who was measured at 6'6.25" and that I guess leads to the theories under 6'7".

My guess is Lebron looks from 0.5" to 0.75" taller than Carmelo. At first I had him at 6'6.5" (199.5 cm), but now I think he is a tad taller at 200 cm or even at 200.7 cm since he genuinely looks like 5cm taller that Dreymond Green who is about 197cm (about 6'5.5"). Anywhere from 6'6.75"to 6'7" (200 cm to 200.7 cm) suits Lebron better than 6'7.25" in my opinion.
MD said on 14/Jun/16
@Rob,

Not the biggest deal, but it'd be nice to find a more recent picture of him. He hasn't dressed in that style in years.
Shane said on 11/Jun/16
The posts saying LeBron is below 6'7" 1/4 are silly. He was measured at 6'7" 1/4 and he obviously hasnt had age related height loss at this point in his life. Whatever height he can obtain - whatever the time of day - is legit. Thats his full height. Calling that inaccurate is ridiculous if he can legit measure it.

There are images from a few years ago with Big Show and Lebron (you can google). I'd say Show was about 3 inches taller than Lebron at the time. So Lebron I feel probably is between 6'7.25" and 6'7.75", and Show 6'10.5" - 6'11".

Agree with Duke, Ignacious and Height.

Thierry henry is about 6'1.25 not even 6'1.5 or 6'2 listing. You may check him out with 6'3 guy like rio ferdinand who was not under 190cm. Lebron edge thierry close to 6 inch so right at 6'7.25 on the clip. max 6'7 is possible that how he look next to 6'6.25 carmelo anthony
Ljungberg said on 2/Mar/16
Agree with Duke, Ignacious and Height.

I think that could be his lowest and is only a 1cm difference at 200 cm.

He does look massive next to tall guys like Thierry Henry (187 cm-188 cm) Click Here

...but when he is next to really tall guys like Carmelo Anthony who is about 198 cm-198.5 cm, the difference isn't much (like 1cm or 2 cm): Click Here

What do you think Rob? Could he be just a tad shorter?

I agree with Ignacious. At best lebron james was a weak 6'7 like 2.00m since atual height difference from kobe and wife's a full picture he only look 1.5" top on kobe and other strong evidence with good camera angle show him max 2inch taller than kobe and i don't feel lebron can be over a cm over take an honest 6'6.5 daniel cudmore so let alone 6'7.25 might be something a morning measurement like 200.7-201.0cm get round up at 6'7.25 (201.2cm) or right on the nose, infact 6'6-3/4 is fair for lebron james.

Ignacious said on 22/Jan/16
He is a strong 6-6 guy, shorter than Magic Johnson who is 6-7 1/4 or 6-7 1/2.

He stopped measuring himself when he reached a legit 6-6 back in high school. He most probably grew a little more after that.

So 6-6 1/2 or 6-6 3/4 at the most for Lebron.

Ozzy: agree definitely. And that Draymond is 6'5 (his assistant coach Alvin Gentry said the same) I don't see many under 7' except KG and Durant who are listed in the league at their actual barefoot height.
MD said on 21/Jan/16
Draymond's height isn't a secret of anything; he was measured at the combined at 6' 5.75" no shoes. Apropos of little, I met him last year. Didn't pay too much attention to his height aside from the fact that he's a big guy - small for his position, but among any kind of regular folk a fairly imposing guy.
Ozzy said on 19/Jan/16
Interesting comment from Chris Webber during the Cavs-Warriors game: "Draymond Green is 6-7, on record, which probably means he's six-five and a half in real life the way basketball players usuaslly add an inch and a half"... Webber has as well called himself six-nine when calling games despite always being listed at 6-10 as a player. Keeping it real.
Canson said on 7/Jan/16
agree with Height's post and 6'6 and change. Lebron and Melo Are always an inch or inch and half shorter than the 6'7 and change guys like Carlos Boozer and Kevin Love. Throw Blake Griffin in the mix as he was measured earlier than those guys with his Brillo pad hair and looks the exact same height as Kevin Love in their locksmith commercial they did together. Check out YouTube.

Also KROC put it well on Kobe's page about skipping the predraft. The reports are inconsistent but Lebron was said to have as well. I mean only .75" for shoes??? Everyone else gets 1-1.5 and some even up to 3" on that page???? Inconsistent!!! Not to mention guys like Kobe who is 6'4.5-6'4.75 and 6'4-6'4.5 measured lance Stephenson in close ups only look 2" shorter when standing neck and neck with him.

@6ftMagician; I think durant was being sarcastic because everyone seems to say he is taller than he is which was his reaction. He's 6'9 and change like listed but no taller or shorter. this just goes to show that most of the nba is overinflated in terms of height listings. Goes to show when Shannon brown who I've seen here in Phoenix is only 6'0 and change and listed 6'3 or 6'4. I am a legit solid barefoot 6'5 and he barely came up to my nose. Same with Shawn respert back in the day (listed 6'3 but barely over 6'
Devin Paul said on 16/Apr/15
I agree with Height. 6'6.5 max. Durant has close to 3"
b-mint1994 said on 16/Apr/15
LOL If Durant was actually 6'7" then Kobe and Lebron would need to be downgraded massively.
