I am a high school basketball coach and I have met many other coaches. One particular coach I know worked at a summer camp with Lebron when Lebron was in High School at St Vincent.

Long story short he said Lebron was 6'4 in barefeet at the time and measured around 6'5.5 with gym shoes which was then rounded to 6'6. He has seen Lebron on occasion and mentioned that Lebron had grown a couple of inches. Lebron is 6'6 in barefeet, 6'7.5 in gym shoes thus this is why he listed at 6'8. A 6'8 list does NOT mean that he is exactly 6'8 with shoes just that he is within a half inch of the listed height.

I think the most important thing to remember is if anyone meets him in person he will be in shoes and probably standing on a uneven surface. On a side note since most people cant tell the difference between a half inch I would say rounding your height off by a half inch is not lying. For example; listing your self at 6'6 when your actually 6'5.5 is pretty accurate and not worth splitting hairs. Claiming more than a half inch is pushing it.

Lebron James was measured 6 ft 7.25, barefoot, when he was 18 years of age, for the draft. That's official. It's pretty likely that was not even his max height at 18 years of age - people measure different heights at different times of the day.

Many men don't even stop growing until they're 20 or 21. I think it's pretty likely he's at least 6'8
Greg (6'1'') says on 15/Oct/14
@payr: LeBron was only 18 at the time and could have easily grown after that. Dwyane Wade measured at 6'3.75'' (which probably means more like 6'3'' flat in the afternoon) and yet LeBron consistently looks four inches taller than him in photos. LeBron is more than likely a full 6'7''.
payr says on 10/Oct/14
Lebron is probably 6-6 and a half during afternoon because he measured at this in the morning
Jdub says on 10/Aug/14
It's a fact most nba players are inflated height wise. I'm just under 6'5 and have stood by lebron. He is about 2 inches taller. I'd give him 6'7 flat and also stood by Melo. He is about 6'6 flat no taller. Remember he had thick cornrows which may have given him the 1/4 inch or so when he came in the league
bigboy fury says on 2/Aug/14
I have stood next to Lebron. I am 6'9 and he is an easy 6'8
KROC says on 19/Jul/14
I've seen Lebron in person-he's 6'7. If you don't believe me look at pictures with him and Carmelo Anthony. Carlos Boozer is taller then him and he isn't even a legit 6'8.
LeBron6 says on 17/Jul/14
@DanteBonfim

That's not 4 inches though budy. Lebrons head doesn't stop where you see the white head band, that's like 2-3 inches max their.
DanteBonfim says on 16/Jul/14
I think LeBron is in 6'7''.

Look at this picture.

Kevin Love, number eleven, is 2.08 (I think he is really 2.06) Blake Griffin is 2.08 -number 14-. Number eight is Kevin Durant, who is well listed in 6'11 (211 cm.), and LeBron arrives at his eyebrow level (4 inches less), that gives a plain 6'7'': 200 cm. In basket, players are measured with shoes, so they are always 3 cm. taller (some of them even 4) than barefoot, so this can explain why LeBron is in 2.00. What do you think? I think more than 2.02 is an exaggeration.

Another thing to you Rob (one suggestion): Could yo put in a future a 'Basketball' page? We are talking in the 'Soccer' page about soccer players' height, but there isn't a simillar one to talk about basketball players, and that's the most interesting, because we haven't talked about that yet. What do you think? Thank you very much :)
Sean says on 12/Jul/14
Lebron is shorter than Boozer, who is not even 6'8 in the morning.

LOL at 6'8. In your dreams Lebron fanboys.
Sal says on 10/Jul/14
Rob can we get a listing for Kevin Durant? He is at least 6'9" Most likely listed at 6'9" so he could be taken seriously as a small forward.
LeBron6 says on 8/Jul/14
He needs to be upgraded to 6'8"
LeBron6 says on 8/Jul/14
Lebron reaches above Shaqs eyebrow ridge and he's likely tilting his head toward him. Lol at anyone saying anything under 6'7. He looks at least 6'8 here with shaq even when accounting the camera disadvantage.

I think the height of 6'7.25" is spot on and that's enough to say you are 6'8" but the real honest dude is Kevin Durant. He probably rounds down.
Blaze says on 9/Jun/14
6ft7.25 was his barefoot height at 18 and that's not even his real morning height. idk why you go by a compressed height after the morning. He is a legit 6ft8, especially out of bed.
Leo says on 6/Jun/14
Someone claimed lebron was measured 6'9.25" (possibly in shoes) and 267 lbs at 2012 Olympics. his barefoot must be at least 6'8" legit now.
Alex 6'0 says on 17/May/14
Wasn't he measured at 6'7.25 barefoot? If so he's a legit strong 6'7. Looks 6'7-6'8 range anyway. 6'6 is too low for him.
johnny z says on 10/May/14
Heights are very hard to figure. Heel size makes people look up to 2" taller than they actually are. I believe ALL NBA players heights are exaggerated by 1.5"-2". I feel a great estimate for Lebrons true height barefoot is 6'6 1/2".
Seahawksfan 187-188 cm says on 2/May/14
Adrian Peterson was measured in as 6'1.32, so 6'7.25 is possible for James.
issa says on 2/May/14
@Yazz possibly.
Seahawksfan 187-188 cm says on 1/May/14
Every NBA listing is the player in shoes actually. They also measure them without shoes. There are so many 6'2-6'3 guys in the NBA who are 6'0-6'1 in reality, and a bunch of 6'1's who are under 6 feet tall.
Yazz says on 29/Apr/14
Look at this high schooler. Click Here
Measured 6'1.25 without shoes, yet measured 6'4.5 with shoes. Was he wearing Stallones lifts?
Yazz says on 24/Apr/14
NBA players now get measured a few times at different camps.

I bet Lebron would have measured 6'6.75 possibly at another camp.
KROC says on 21/Apr/14
Kevin Durant is 6'9. And I can definitely see Lebron waking up to 6'8.
mudcats says on 21/Apr/14
Durant isnt taller than 6'9. NBA wouldnt downgrade him.
Mario says on 9/Apr/14
Lebron is easily 203cm at night.
DMoney says on 11/Mar/14
All i can say is that Durant is a tall son of a gun. He has 3 full inches on lebron. I would say 6'7.5" Lebron and 6'10.5" Durant.
Lebron23 says on 28/Feb/14
Kevin Durant looks taller than 6'9.5" Alonzo Mourning. Click Here
Sal Rizzo says on 28/Feb/14
LeBron is honestly 6'3 at best! I met him and Deron Williams and they are identical in height.
Hank the Tank says on 23/Feb/14
@Lebron23 No, in your pic, LeBron is eye to eye with Beasley. If Wade is 6'4", Beasley and LeBron look 6'8". Which means Beasley can't be the 6'10" he's listed at.
Bill says on 16/Feb/14
At the All Star Game he stood next to a 6'2" Craig Sager and only looked 3 or 4 inches taller. Not sure if Sager had thicker heels on or what though.
Jaywha says on 16/Feb/14
203 cm imo.
LeBron6 says on 15/Feb/14
In the recent okc and heat games Kevin Durant who claims to be measured at 6'10.25", only looks 1-2 inches taller then lebron.
LeBron6 says on 13/Feb/14
6ft6 is laughing gas
ben says on 9/Feb/14
6ft 6 best guess
2metermanchildthing says on 6/Feb/14
this dude was 6'7.25 as an 18 year old, as recorded in the predraft measurements. its most likely he grew to even 6'7.5 as he looks of similar, or even slightly taller in height to guys who are legit 6'8 barefoot e.g shane battier.
Michael says on 17/Jan/14
Lebron so nice player on Miami but lebron is no match for jordan
Heightwise says on 12/Jan/14
I'm trying to find good comparisons between Howard, Durant and Lebron. Durant looks almost 3 inches taller than Lebron in various pictures, Dwight never looks more than 2 taller than Lebron. Then there's a picture of Howard and Durant and Howard has a touch on him (though Durant might be leaning a little). So it's hard to find conclusive heights for the 3
Lebron23 says on 7/Jan/14
Lebron is taller than 6'7" Michael Beasley. Click Here Wade is 6'3 3/4'
Leo says on 24/Dec/13
He definitely maybe grown to 6'8" or at least 6'7.5". He is definitely at least 2.5 inches taller than kobe who's 6'4.75" or 6'5".
KROC says on 23/Dec/13
Met Rajon a couple years. He's 6ft on the dot.
andrew yu says on 20/Dec/13
lebron james is 6ft 10inch without shoes. kevin durant is 6ft 11inch without shoes. kobe bryant is 6ft 5inch without shoes while dwyane wade is 6ft 4inch
Bosnia says on 17/Dec/13
I'm curious about Rajon Rondo. He is listed 6 ft 1 and he looks it. Couldn't find his height without shoes.
MEEE says on 15/Dec/13
I would give him no more than 6'6.75 MAX.
KROC says on 12/Dec/13
Sorry Peter Hung but Kobe is 6'5 and Lebron isn't anything below 6'7. Still not sure about him being 6'8 though. I've gotten the opportunity to meet a lot of these ballplayers over the last 10 years or so and I can tell you that 99% of the time, they come out shorter then listedů even the tallest ones. The redraft measurements give you a glimpse of the truth in terms of a lot of these players height, but its far from being the Holy Grail. I mean come on they still have Allen Iverson listed as 6'0 feet...
peter hung says on 26/Nov/13
the nba lies he is only 6'6 kobe 6'4
heightwise says on 15/Nov/13
Interestingly, in the USA team photo Lebron looks surprisingly short, not sure if he could be leaning down slightly or have a shoe disadvantage, but everyone else in the back row seem to dwarf him, Durant by 3 inches or so and Kevin Love who is supposedly under 6'8 by around 1.5-2 inches Click Here
@kroc says on 14/Nov/13
he looks a legit two inches taller then Beasley
Ali Baba says on 13/Nov/13

Thats 6 inches between him and Peterson, not 5.
------------------------

Only about 5 inches difference in the picture you posted.

Lebron is taller than Carmello@ Joe
issa says on 8/Nov/13
6 foot 7.25 inches is completely correct.
Joe says on 7/Nov/13
Click Here appears shorter than 6'6 Carmelo
KROC says on 6/Nov/13
@ height wise He doesn't look taller then either of those guys. Kevin Love height is 6'7. 75 while Beasley is probably just a flat 6'7. if anything Love looks slightly taller then himů Lebron use to come to Rucker Park back in the day and he always looked the listed height above. He was only 18 then of course so he could of grown slightly.
heightwise says on 31/Oct/13
Click Here Appears taller than two 6'10 listed players here (Kevin Love and Michael Beasley). Even though Beasley is seems 2 inches+ shorter than Durant (listed 6'9)
Bard says on 30/Oct/13
Damn, I was 5'7 at 12 and I haven't even reached 6 foot. Goes to show how much growth can vary from person to person :/ Anyways, I think LeBron's a strong 6'7.
Lyvloev says on 24/Oct/13
LeBron is 6'9" in shoes, from "LeBron IX" shoes, it's platform(heel) is elevated for 1.75 inches, because he weights heavy and landing from high jump constantly can hurt his feet, anyway LeBron is 6'7.25"(201cm) barefoot.His weight is around 250 pounds(115kg). His peak weight was 275(125kg) pounds, don't compare him to D.Howard, LeBron has high BMD and his bones give him more weight even if he looks skinny.
Lotty says on 18/Oct/13
He is 6'8" he was 6'1 at age 13 5'7" at age 12 5'1 at age 11 and 4'5" at age 10
Viper says on 14/Oct/13
Thats 6 inches between him and Peterson, not 5.
Ali Baba says on 13/Oct/13
Actually if Peterson is 6'1" that puts James at under 6'7" by about an inch.
Viper says on 11/Oct/13
If hes 6'8 then we have to upgrade a whole bunch of other basketball players and others.

He doesnt look taller than 6'7 with 6'1 Adrian Peterson. Click Here

Peterson is leaning in some no less
Akhil says on 7/Sep/13
He is 6.8

Barkley isnt 6'5. He was measured at 6'4 5/8 at the Olympics
Blaze says on 14/Aug/13
kobe, barkley, and jordan are all 6'5. magic and lebron are both 6'7. wade is 6'4. and I'm 15 and 6'5. the end.

@Joe

They couldn't and don't wear multiple pairs of socks during the pre draft combine as that could potentially hurt their performance in other things. Lying in bed for an extended period of time such as 12 hours isn't going to make a real difference to just getting a good 8-10 hour sleep before pre draft camp. So knowing that the average person fully stops growing between 18-21 yrs, I think it's to say that some these people who were drafted by age of 18 have grown since their pre draft measurements
Joe says on 22/Jul/13
@LeBron6

Pretty much all NBA players are measured barefoot at the pre-draft camp, so there isn't too much debate about their height. I have heard that some of them use techniques to measure out as tall as possible, such as wearing multiple pairs of thick socks or lying in bed for 12 hours the night before measurement day. I would take the pre-draft measurements to represent their absolute peak height. By night, most of them are probably at least an inch shorter.
LeBron6 says on 15/Jul/13
Rob you should add dwyane wade, kevin durant, dwight howard, kobe bryant, carmello anthony, and blake griffin.
Leo says on 14/Jul/13
This guy probably grew a few cm from the moment he was measured to pre draft camp since he's only 18 years old at that time. I would say he would be a full 6'8" now.
6\'1\" person says on 11/Jul/13
How come every profile of his height says that he Is 6'8"? You should remeasure him.
anan says on 7/Jul/13
LeBron is 6.7 without shoes 6.8 with shoes Height in nba with shoes
wiltonstilts says on 5/Jul/13
Im not an expert but i wouldnt be surprised if he was 6 08. Hes prolly 6 08 people at least the peak height!
Sense says on 3/Jul/13
Tim Duncan was 6'11 barefoot coming into the league.

The USA basketball picture is inaccurate. Kevin Love is 6'7.75, yet he holds his own with the 6'9.25 Anthony Davis and 6'9+ Kevin Durant.
Lillo Thomas says on 3/Jul/13
Magic johnson isn't 6-9 . Magic Johnson barefoot height is in the 6-7 range . He is the same height of lebron James . 6-7.25.
PLB says on 1/Jul/13
Zz said: What really counts in basketball is where your arms attach to your shoulders.

Very true. When I was living in San Francisco on Russian Hill I walked into our local Chinese laundry and there was Clifford Ray towering over me. Ray was 'only' 6'9" - kind of short for an NBA center, and I'm not a midget at 6'4". But he was immense. Very impressive. His head was barely above his shoulders. He was effectively as tall as the seven footers because of his odd skeletal structure.
kenyon martin says on 29/Jun/13
i have seen lebron james next to kevin durant in a picture.durant looked 3inches
taller than lebron.durant is 6.9 -6.10 barefoot.then lebron must be about 6.7
LeBron6 says on 27/Jun/13
Rob, look at this picture with 18 year old LeBron and 6'9 listed magic Johnson. LeBron has way worse posture and less footwear due to magic wearing dress shoes. If LeBron is only 6'7.25" then magic was less then 6'7".
Click Here
Xc says on 26/Jun/13
Durant's height isn't so much deflated as other player's heights are inflated. Unlike 99% of players in the league, he lists his height without shoes. Barefoot he's as tall as all 6'10" players and probably half of 6'11" players.

The USA basketball picture shows he's no more than 6'10.5" in shoes when you compare him to Davis and Love.
ia5 says on 24/Jun/13
he is a solid 6,8
Ozzy says on 23/Jun/13
@Mike: As I posted on 4/Jun/13: Here's Durant next to Davis who measured at 6'9.25" only a short time from when the picture was taken.

Click Here

It's not unlikely that Durant have grown, but I still don't think he's more than 6'10 flat w/o shoes. Some are still growing when they hit the twenties, some don't. I'm 6'3.25" and haven't grown since I was 19 (I was 155lbs then though, 190 now).
LeBron6 says on 23/Jun/13
LeBron with minimum 6'10''-6'11" Tim Duncan. Rob I'd say he looks at least 6'8" despite the camera advantage...what do you guys think?

Sense says on 21/Jun/13
Wade is still at least 6'3 barefoot. He definitely looks in the 6'5 range on the court. He was pretty closely matched to the 6'5.25 barefoot Danny Green and looked nothing more than an inch shorter.
Looking at the after party pictures, Wade is towering over the 6'0 Drake, and the 6'1 Norris Cole.
LeBron is slouching and still at least 3 inches taller.
Balrog says on 20/Jun/13
Johno. 5in? Federer 6'0.5''? LeBron 6'6'' range? Are you serious?
HeghtDoctor says on 20/Jun/13
Lebron atleast 6'10 braaaaa
Mike says on 19/Jun/13
What does everyone on here think about Kevin durant's height? I would say barefoot he looks close to the 6-10 listing (which is rare in the nba since that is usually a height with shoes). I know he was measured at 6-9 w/o shoes, but he was 19 then so an inch of growth would not be absurd.
Ozzy says on 15/Jun/13
Haslem pretty much says it though: "I'm 6'6 3/4 - 6'7"
Johno says on 11/Jun/13

Here is lebron with federer. I see 5 inches difference in height or could be slightly be more.

Rob has federer at 6'1.25, i estimate federer at 6'0.5 - 6'0.75 and lebron would be in the 6'6 range.
B says on 11/Jun/13
Lebron and Udonis Haslem both say Wade is 6'1'', but it could be an inside joke. (Haslem is also evasive about his own height.) I've never thought Wade looked 6'3.75'' barefoot though.

Click Here
Johno says on 10/Jun/13
He is about 3.5 inches taller then wade
Zz says on 4/Jun/13
Solid 6'7.5'' for Lebron, 6'8.5'' in shoes.

He plays much bigger than his height because he has very high shoulders and a short neck and head. What really counts in basketball is where your arms attach to your shoulders.
Ozzy says on 4/Jun/13
If you're going to use pics, use decent ones. No leaning, no different stance, no too low/high camera angle. Pics might fool you anyway, but team pics are the best by far for judging height. For now, these are the best out there:
Team USA 2012 (I find this very good because it's got Anthony Davis in it a matter of weeks after he was measured at pre-draft camp, so we can eliminate possible growth and thus know that he's 6'9.5" in this picture): Click Here

I'm just over 6'8'' in the morning and about 6'7'' at night. I was slightly taller than Lebron when I met him, which makes sense because NBA height measurements are taken in the morning. Lebron is probably 6'7.5'' in the morning and about 6'6.5'' after a long day.

Depending on what he did and how early he was up compared to you, your posture and his posture, and the footwear. with these factored in he could easily measure out taller then you.
dman9500 says on 2/Jun/13
I'd say without shoes Lebron is exactly 6'7.
rdurr says on 29/May/13
I can only buy Lebron at 6'6.5 at night.

Lebron is about 1.25 inches taller then kobe bryant. Kobe himself was measured at 6'4.75 but out of barkley, jordan and kobe, kobe seems the shortest and all three were measured at 6'4.75.

So that would lebron at 6'6 but i'll give him half an inch and put him at 6'6.5. Lebron james was similar in height to magic johnson but if magic stood with full posture, he would edge lebron and magic himself isn't even much taller then jordan nor the 6'5 howard stern. Magic has been listed at 6'9, which was very, very silly. Magic doesn't even seem to edge 6'7 and lebron isn't taller then him.

Lebron is in the 6'6 range at best.

kobe 6'4 - 6'4.75
barkley 6'4.5 - 6'4.75
jordan 6'4.75 - 6'5
magic 6'6 - 6'7 at best

Think Rob has it right on this one. If you look at pictures of Lebron next to 6'1 Obama and 6'3.5" Wade he looks to be a solid 6'7. No less, no more. Also he was measured at 6'7 without shoes at the nba draft combine at the age of 18 so there is no way he is under 6'7 flat
Lomax says on 21/Apr/13
Pothead said it correctly

Johno says on 16/Apr/13
An inch taller then a weak 6'5 kobe bryant in most pictures. It would be very difficult for him to get to 6'7 let alone, 6'8.

Kobe 6'4.75
Lebron 6'6 - 6'6.5 ( most likely a flat 6'6)

Not a chance in hell that Lebron is under 6'7".

Also...I have seen 6"4 Dwade next to 6"2 Novak Djokovic at the Miami Masters...he looked at least 3 inches taller..either Novak is 6"1 with shoes..or Dwade is closer to 6"5 with shoes..therefore making Lebron DEFINITELY a legit 6"8 with shoes..since he has at least 4-5 inches on Dwade
Pothead says on 8/Apr/13
First of all..nobody is listed with his barefoot height. It's about your height in shoes rounded to the nearest inch. So if LeBron is 6ft 7.25 in and his shoes have 1 inch soles..he is 6ft 8.25 in..which is 6"8 rounded to the nearest inch. If he was 6 ft 7.5 in he would be 6 ft 8.50 with shoes..making him 6"9 rounded.
I am 5 ft 6.25 inches barefoot...but most people think I am a legit 5"7...weak 5"8.

Ozzy "Anywhere from 6'7"-6'8" seems right to me for James..."

Yeah, agree. The question is where in that range...
JBone says on 7/Apr/13
Whats going to blow everyone's mind is the Rim is only 9' 10" off the ground as well...
Dallas says on 4/Apr/13
lebron with his new shoes is 6'8" kevin Durant is 6'10"
Ozzy says on 3/Apr/13
Also for reference, Dwight Howard on his own height:

"The rules are different," Howard said. "When Shaq played, you could be more of a bulldozer down in the paint. Nowadays, you see it, if I hit somebody just a little bit, they call offensive foul. Plus, I'm 6 [feet] 9, 6-10. If I could play the way he played, it would be a lot of fun." Click Here

Rob, Kevin Durant stated he was 6'9.75" barefoot. So LeBron is probably taller than 6'7.25"
jimmy says on 20/Mar/13
Kevin Durant is more than flat 6'9".He is a bit taller than Dwight Howard.Howard also doesn't look 2 full inches taller than Lebron.Lebron has around an inch on Carmelo Anthony who is 6'6" 1/2 - 6'7" barefoot.Lebron is sli taller than Ben Wallace who is a strong 6'7" guy.I can't see anything less for Lebron than 6'7" 1/2.
Ozzy says on 18/Mar/13
For what it's worth, Chris Webber is 6-8.5/6-9 according to Craig Sager. Webber measured 6-9 w/o shoes once. I've stood next to C-Webb as well, and I'd be surprised if is anything over 6-9. I thought he'd be bigger, but 6-8.5/6-9 looked about right... @10:40: Click Here And C-Webb is def taller than James. @Lillo Thomas, I agree. Durant looks taller than 6-9 because most other 6-9 or 6-10 listed guys really are in the 6-7.25-6-8.5 range (Beasley, Love, Lee, Harrington, Perkins, Horford)... Considering the variations in stance, shoes etc. team pics are still the best. w/o shoes measurements: Chandler (6-11.75) Love (6-7.75) Griffin (6-8.75) Melo (6-6.75) James (6-7.25).... tinyurl thing won't work, google team usa basketball roster.
Lillo Thomas says on 12/Mar/13
Kevin durant also proves that Lebron James is a legit 6-7 . Nothing more . He got 2 inches on Lebron James .
Lillo Thomas says on 12/Mar/13
Kevin durant is the perfect guy to estimate other players height . He is one of few guys in the nba that claim his real height .He is taller than many 6-9 and 6-10 listed guys .
leo says on 10/Mar/13
kevin durant is more like 6'9.5" and lebron james 6'7" - 6'7.5".

Look at this pics of the 2012 USA Basketball team, Lebrons top head reaches Durant eyebrow. I think Durants height is 6'10" he may have another 1 inch late growth spurt in his early 20s (predraft express states his height is 6'9" barefoot at age 19), Lebrons a legit 6'7" not 6'8". Notice how Durant is so close to height with 6'11" Chandler.

I'd say he is 6'9" in shoes. I have some Lebron's and the soles are very thick, plus the socks they wear I'd say he is 6'7.75" barefoot.
LeBron6 says on 18/Oct/12
Rob, listing LeBron at 6'7.25" wouldn't make any sense since Kevin Durant is likely over 6'9"

I think LeBron at 6'8" and kevin durant at 6'9"-6'9.5" is a better guess since this listing throws everything off.
Knowledge says on 1/Oct/12
Tony you are 100% right.I know from my father who is 52 lost almost 2'.He was solid 6'4 around 30.Right now on a good day he isnt even 6'3.He has a good posture.

Back to the topic.I saw many pictures of lebron i can see him being full 6'8 on a good day.201cm-203cm range seems acceptable for him.However its highly unlikely he didnt grew even a little after 18.
Tony says on 21/Sep/12
if you guys look at height charts for men you will see that taller men(meaning over 190cm) begin shrinking a lot earlier than average men. On the growth chart taller men tend to start shrinking at about 30 years old, this is due to gravity and such pulling down more on taller peoples bodies. I would not be surprised if these NBA players began shrinking before they reached 30 due to their massiveness. You guys also do not take into account that one of the reasons these men were able to excel in basketball was because they matured faster than their fellow peers physically, so they were probably done growing sooner and probably did not grow much after 18.

so that means blake is actually around 6'8.
Shaun says on 25/Aug/12
A full 6'2" for Lochte is as doubtful now as 6'4" is for Phelps. JTM there is a video on youtube where Blake is formally measured barefoot first thing in the MORNING at 6'8.75" and being "depressed" as he wasn't 6'10. LeBron can look a full 6'8" a lot, he's pretty close. Hilarious though he is a "Small forward" in position
SqueezyD says on 24/Aug/12
The biggest exageration of height would be Dwight Howard's. Listed at 6'11, there are many videos and pictures proving that he is actually around 6'9.
Watch the presentation of Mitch Kupchak presenting him with his Lakers jersey. Mitch was listed at 6'9 and is probably as tall or taller than Dwight!
jtm says on 23/Aug/12
lebron was 6'7 in 2003 and he is still 6'7 in 2012.
5\'10 guy says on 20/Aug/12
this is ridicolous for the guy that says that d wade is 6'2 if you read the olympics article the model he is standing next too is 6'0 feet tall And she towers the rest of the olympians including Ryan Lochete ! like really towers him hes 6'2 and she probably has on 4 or 5 inch heels and hes barefoot.But dwade is still taller then her hes a solid 6'4 she even says it herself .He has her by 2 inches with his sneakers.

Rob please look at this pic with LeBron 6'8.75" pre draft measured blake griffin who is 6'10" in shoes. LeBron can't be 6'7.25". He looks atleast 6'8" in that shot. Can you list him at 6'8" rob?

[Editor Rob: lebron looks a little bit nearer than the other guy in that one.]

Rob, he is clearly not 1.5 inches shorter then 6'8.75 pre draft measured blake griffin. Could be 6'8. I think he grew. Upgrade please.

Everyone check out d wade in the Vogue olympic shoot. The model is 183 . I confidently give d wade 6 '2" I think you will agree when you see the shots. Unless she is taller than 6 foot which is possible, but her profiles say otherwise.

who cares if their heights are being exaggerated by an inch or two, they are still tall as ****!!!

A 6'7.25 guy claiming 6'8, big deal, he's still huge and you probably wouldn't notice the difference.

if wade was actually measured at that height then it was probably in the morning.

No wade is actually closer to 6'4", as he his barefoot pre-draft measurments and 6'3-3/4".
Lebron23 says on 6/Feb/12
It's time to upgrade his height listing. From 67'.25" to 6'8".
jtm says on 6/Feb/12
wade is closer to 6'3. look at him next to 5'9 adam sandler.
Lebron23 says on 5/Feb/12
I think LeBron is a solid 6'8". He's 4.25" taller than 6'3 3/4" Dwayne Wade.

Stoudemire, who struggled with a back injury in the Knicks playoff series against the Celtics last year, declared himself 100% fit after the workout. He said the extra time off because of the lockout was a "blessing in disguise," for him physically.

"I think everything is 100%. I feel great. I feel stronger than ever before," said Stoudemire. "I actually grew a half an inch, I am 6-11 with my shoes on, because of my posture. I am 260 (pounds) with an 8% body fat. I feel like a beast." ... Amar'e Was measured at 6'8.5"/6'10" (with/without shoes) at pre-draft camp... Has been listed at 6'10" throughout his career so that makes sense, so by applying logic, he says he grew half an inch to 6'11, assuming he was 6'10.5" before last summer, meaning he grew half an inch from when he was drafted, which isn't far fetched considering he was 19 at the time, this makes him 6'11 in shoes and 6'9.5 without... however, there's always the possibility that he's rounding up now: 6'10" to 6'10.5"->6'11"... Thus, comparing him to LeBron...?

With 6'10.5"/6'11" Chris Bosh and 6'11.75"/7'1" Tyson Chandler (Pre-draft measurements): Click Here

With James, Bosh, Chandler and IAF officially listed 6'2.5" (189cm) Liu Xiang: Click Here

Anywhere from 6'7"-6'8" seems right to me for James...
