@Height: Stackhouse and Jordan look the exact same to me always. I've never seen a pic where stack is shorter than him. I've seen some where stack can look taller but he's the same height. If anything One may have an 1/8" on the other which we can never see. Jordan remember too wears high cut shoes. I have his sneaks and am close to 6'6 in them in one pair I have even at 6'4 3/8 at night. They're a good 1.4" easy. From pics I see of Jordan in public he looks my height (Colin Kapernick is similar height as well) and he looks similar to him so does Kobe. They all don't look as tall as Howard Stern or Cam Newton. They're legit 6'5s. And Jordan is also built the exact same way as I am too. Very long 36 inseam and avg torso. That automatically gives the impression he's taller. Believe me I've been asked if I'm 6'6 many a times in my life. I see a lot of 6'3 1/2 guys or 6'2.5 guys say 6'5 and 6'4 claiming their morning and shoes. Nick Anderson is about 6'4. i have to honor what he claimed. Penny looked 2" taller than him to me and saw pics with Grant and he was a good nearly 5" taller than Nick. I've never met Horace but have met his brother. Prob 6'8.5 looked 4" taller than me

Height: I guess anything is possible but if Jordan gets guessed at 6'4 by people close in size to him he def comes down below 195. To put in perspective there's no way he's as tall as Klitschko is. He's 198 out of bed and 196 at his low. 197 is 6'5 5/8. And a strong 197 is 6'5 3/4-7/8. I'd air more toward 196.2 from bed maybe 196.5 (6'5 3/8) the latter would mean he'd be in the 7/8" category for height loss and with his build I can't see that. I see 196.2/194.4 at his lowest esp when he was 6'4.5 when drafted

Stackhouse at 194.4 cm vs Jordan at 195.5 cm
Height said on 29/Jun/16
@Canson

Nick Anderson never looked a flat 6'4" and is not shorter than 6'4.25" (193.7 cm), that is virtually 194 cm. Stackhouse has always been slightly taller than Nick and slightly shorter than MJ, about 1 cm shorter.
Canson said on 28/Jun/16
@Height: Anderson is only 6'4 (193) not 6'4.5. Stackhouse is 6'4.5 but Jordan and he are the same. In some pics Stackhouse can look taller actually but they're prob the exact same

Height said on 27/Jun/16
@Canson I agree at MJ not being a full 6'5" (195.6 cm) at night, but considering that he can be a strong 197 cm during the day, and he genuinely looks more than 2 cms taller than legit 193 cm people, I think the absolute lowest he can drop at night is inside the 195.5 cm - 195 cm range (very similar to Kobe).

Interesting facts about your height!
Canson said on 27/Jun/16
Height I agree on the metric system being better. I'm not saying Jordan can't measure 6'4.75 earlier in the day but I think he would be 6'4.5 or my height (6'4 3/8-.42)at his lowest. In fact I firmly believe he'd still be 6'4.75 two hours out of bed and 6'4.5 at night. he and Stackhouse along with Kobe all look 6'4.5 and they can even look shorter than Carter as well or same height. 6'4.5 is very possible for Jordan 194.5 which is why some people even 6'2+ guys have said he's 6'4 others 6'5. That really is dependent on what time of day that specific person describing him measured and how much (degree of rounding) the person does. I often get 6'5 more than I do 6'4 (at 194.5)
Height said on 25/Jun/16
@Canson

Like I said on another thread, I think 6'4.5"and 6'4.75" are interchangeable, and 6'4.5" is one of the common ways for Basketball people (in USA at least) to refer to anyone who is between 193 and 195.5 cm. That is why I'm an advocate of the metric system.

I once believed MJ could be as low as 194 cm 194.5 cm as full grown pro, especially considering that Barkley looked 1cm - 1.5cm taller than him most of the time, but then after carefully comparing him again with other players who are legit 6'6" (Reggie Miller or Penny Hardaway who is actually more like Melo's height at 6'6.25") he honestly seemed like a flat 6'5"guy.

MJ is no way shorter than 195 cm or 195.5cm, he genuinely edged legit 6'4" players by about an inch (thinking guys like Mitch Richmond). Or how he edged player that are true 194 cm like Nick Anderson or Jerry Stackhouse by a little less than half an inch (about 1cm).
Canson said on 25/Jun/16
@Height: I agree. He was never "flat" 6'4 in the pros. But 6'4.5 when he was drafted I can see
Height said on 23/Jun/16
@Canson

I believe he was 6'4" when he was still in high school and then he continued growing during his first 2 college years. In the NBA he always seemed 1 inch taller than legit 6'4" guys.
Canson said on 22/Jun/16
He was said to actually be 6'4 when he first entered North Carolina his freshman year.

Editor Rob: could be near 10 inches smaller.
5'6 Aravind said on 10/Jun/16
Can he lose an inch at 53?
Editor Rob: some can make it to that age without any noticeable loss (apart from a few mm's), while others really can look like they've lost 0.5-1 inch. I wouldn't have said Jordan looked to have lost much.
Canson said on 3/Jun/16
@Sal agree with most of what u said. But him saying Rodman is half inch taller than him I heard him say the same but it was to illustrate that Rodman really isn't "6'9 260 he's 6'6 220 in Jordan's words". Jordan is comparing his listed height in the league (his shoe height rounded up) to Rodman's legit barefoot height (Rodman is prob 199cm 6'6-6'6.5)
Sal said on 2/Jun/16
My food for thought. He always looked the same height as Barkley, occasionally taller, usually slightly shorter. He was described by those who looked at him in the NBA draft as a 6'4" guy as opposed to a 7'1" Bowie, which doesn't look correct when you saw him next to Ralph Sampson who was exaggerated 7'4". The Olympic measurement we can't verify said 6'4.88" And Michael Jordan described Rodman as being a half inch taller at 6'6" and at North Carolina I saw a roster with him listed at 6'5.5" so I'm saying the 6'5" estimate sounds about right. The picture of him with Russell though makes me wonder how much height he would have lost. He regularly looks 6'10" to 6'11" with modern listed guys and he was measured at 6'9 and 5/8" but wanted to be rounded down. If Russell was around 6'8.5" now that would make Jordan closer to 6'4" or so as per your comment on the height difference Rob.
Height said on 25/May/16
Canson, how can you be so sure? Have you met him?

Many people claim what you say, but many others similar in height claim he is a legit 6'5 guy, which I believe. Honestly he doesn't seem as low as 194cm (maybe at age 17/18 or so). The absolute lowest I see MJ is at 195cm-195.5 cm and during the day he certainly gives the impression of being a full 6'6", so I don't see why he can't be at 197cm at his highest.
Canson said on 25/May/16
@Rampage: a little off on this one. But close. He's 196 out of bed and 194 at night. He's the same as me (a hair over 6'5 out of bed, 6'4.5 afternoon and maybe 6'4.4 or so at his lowest). You get people close in height to him describing him as 6'4 pretty regularly. He isn't that low but he spends time in both ranges during the day to get classified as both

Flat 6-5 at his very least. Only time in his life he was a weak 6-5 was at age 17/18/19.
bobbyh3342 said on 21/May/16
Jordan has always been a weak 6 5 (194 to195) but since he was one of the best to ever lace up..... I guess he can get the full 6'5

Great insights DRE!
Canson said on 22/Jan/16
DRE: very well said! I agree. And I know it is debatable. we're in the same ballpark with the mid to high 6'4", so no argument! Also agree about Vince. He's the same height as the 3 guys you mentioned as well as Kobe. RJ said during his biography for dunking that he's 6'4 1/2, (6'5 on a good day) so right on the money there too.
DRE said on 21/Jan/16
Canson,

Of course all of this is debatable, but I truly think that's about 4 inches between him and Federer. Maybe just under 4 inches, but not less than 3 and a half.
If he is 6-4 3/4 or 6-4 7/8 that is irrelevant to me as both are still the same height (with just millimeters in difference), and still puts him at a 3 and 3/4 inch or 4 inch difference with Roger Federer.

Both Stackhouse and Nick Anderson where fractions shorter than MJ. MJ always edeged Stackhouse by a fraction and of course on some angles they appear the same, but the actual truth is that MJ edged him by a fraction, just the same way as Vince Carter (about 6'4.8-.9 ) edges MJ by a fraction.
Canson said on 20/Jan/16
@DRE: I'll split the diff between you and Matthew and say 3-4. def not a full 4 tho. 6'4.5-.75 is about right which makes him just about what you said in your last post, a weak 6'5 (1/4" isn't noticeable on anyone). Not a full 6'5 but between 6'4-6'5 as people like Reggie Miller have said about him. And remember in his shoes he wears (high sole and basketball shoes both) he will be almost a legit 6'6 coming out of that range barefoot.

Not a full 6'5 but between 6'4-6'5 as people like Reggie Miller have said about him. He actually looks the same height as Stackhouse (not taller) (measured 6'4.5) in the pics on the Wizards. and about the same as Barkley officially measured 6'4 5/8 by the Olympics. Ditto for Kobe. And remember in his shoes he wears (high sole and basketball shoes both) he will be close to if not a legit 6'6 coming out of that range barefoot.
DRE said on 18/Jan/16
He clearly looks 4 inches taller than Roger Federer like Height said...that's what 4 inches / 4 and half inches looks in real life.

I just don't see him as a 6'4 and a half guy...I believe that was his height coming out of high school and then grew slightly more. Plus the guy looks 6'6"/ 6'7" in real life, and tad taller than real 6'4 and a half guys like Nick Anderson or Jerry Stackhouse. So just a hair under 6'5 or a flat 6'5 sounds about right.
Canson said on 17/Jan/16
Duhon: I don't downgrade for my health. I do it because they're guys claim these heights. On the flip side you are always upgrading people. "Oh a morning height is true' sounds like someone is insecure with his height and wishes he was taller if you ask me!
Duhon said on 17/Jan/16
Pre-Draft measurements are accurate teams want the real data at that pivotal time. Lol Canson keeps going to every NBA player page trying to downgrade them, sounds like someone is bitter they couldn't make the NBA.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 14/Jan/16
The pics next to Roger Federer... I don't think that quite looks a full 4" in either shot. Over 3 yes, but not 4.
Canson said on 26/Dec/15
Feder the only one here who is stupid is you. The predraft measurements aren't correct and that's well known
feder said on 22/Dec/15


go ahead take lebron's word for it because people's opinion is more accurate than measurements that are directly from the nba pre draft camp lol stupid
Height said on 22/Dec/15
He looks at least 10cm (4 inches) taller than 185cm / 186 cm (6'1") Roger Federer.

So I wouldn't give him anything under 195cm (6'4.75" / 6'4.88").

Canson said on 21/Dec/15
Thanks Jim! I wasn't too surprised to hear that number. Most people that I've heard along with the folks in the NBA have said around 6'4 1/2.

Just curious. Is the 6'4.75 a measurement after you've been on your feet a while or is that a measurement early in the morning? Just curious to see how MJ would compare to me because all 3 of us are probably similar in height (I'm about 6'4 1/2 if I were to measure late in the day maybe early evening, pretty much a weak 6'5).

I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Jordan at his Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational event back in 2009. I was help coordinating the event so I met him very briefly the morning of.

I'm 6'4.75 w/o shoes and when I met him I looked him right in the eyes. We were the exact same height. I was actually a bit surprised, I figured he'd be a little taller than me. So yea. I'll never forget how massive his hands were too. They swallowed mine when I shook his hand.

I'm guessing 196cm is right on the mark for MJ , most sports stars I've met in real life aren't anywhere near as tall as they claim, so are but most are not . A legitimate 6 foot 6 man is huge 😉

Great picture. if we take into account penny's head tilt (slightly), definitely puts Jordan between 6'4-6'5 somewhere in there. Reggie Miller also said the same that MJ is 6'4-6'5.

@godjlove
Lol,you seem a big fan of MJ,that's clear.The guy was so perfect that even stating his qualities is useless.Watching him play would be enough to convince even the most skeptical ones about that.
BUT I must point out that James was a better jumper.MJ vertical leap is listed as 48" but actually it's only 43" (8'10" hands up with 12'5" as the highest reach).James has a 44"vertical leap.
Obviously some qualities of MJ are simply present in every player,one can't take those qualities as decisive since they aren't measurable but you summarized quite well the player,in one word the best.
plus said on 31/Oct/15
in Olympics of 1992 he was measured at 6'4.88 is 195,28 cm, so he should be downgraded to 195 cm
Him said on 24/Oct/15
MJ at 195cm-196cm and Barkley at 196cm-197cm sounds reasonable.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/15
Rob, is it possible for Jordan to have lost a centimetre at 52?


He still looks 6ft5. I'm just wondering if it may be a case of him being a little over it in his 30's.
[Editor Rob: some guys will reach his age with minimal/negligible height lost, while others I think can look 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch under what they did...maybe in their 40's, some lifestyle changes or wear and tear has a toll and they ship over half inch by early 50's.]

I was lucky enough to meet MJ at the Palm Springs Golf Resort back in 2011. I'm exactly 6'4.75 without shoes on. I was wearing golf shoes at the time. With them, I'm close to 6'6. Jordan was also wearing golf shoes, and when I met him, he looked me directly in the eye. He maaybe was a tiny bit shorter, but nothing noticeable. He's still 6'4.5 to this day, no shorter. He's also got huge hands. When we shook hands, his engulfed mine.

Height said on 2/Jun/15
Adding to what Tunman said,

If Barkley is 6'4.75" (195 cm) then Jordan should be downgraded to 6'4.25" (193.5 cm). Otherwise, at peak height it could be Barkley : 6'5" flat (196 cm) and Jordan 6'4.5" (194.5 cm) as stated by Pat Riley.
Tunman said on 30/May/15
Rob,Is it possible that MJ was only 6'4.5?Remember Riley described him so.The more I see pics with Barkley the more I doubt MJ was taller.Actually Barkley could even look fractionally taller.If Barkley is only 6'4.75 like he said (maybe after a long day training/playing?),MJ could have been 6'4.5"after a long day?Maybe a downgrade to 6'4.75 could be a good beginning.

Jordan is on the lower end of 6'4 (6'4-6'4.25). Barkley is between 6'4.5-6'4.75 like he says (I've seen him in person and am 6'5 and definitely was not looking up at him). Chuck is taller than MJ. I'd say rodman is 6'5.5-6'6 barefoot since 6'6.5 seems to be his height in shoes as he has claimed that numerous times. And remember pippen was drafted at 6'6 1/2 barefoot and 6'7.5 (shoes). Pip is closer to 6'7 tho barefoot and is taller than both Jordan and rodman.if you look at the picture of the 96 all star team below that was used to compare pippen and Jordan, pip isn't much taller than penny and Reggie miller so he may still be in the high 6'6 range

It seems headsizes varies alot at tall heights as Schaubs head is a lot bigger than mannings, which is a lot bigger than Bolt, his is a lot bigger than Jordan, which is a lot bigger than kobe's head finally. Also those guys are within an inch of each other. Sorry rob if this was a strange but probably a very funny comment though. I don't have much of a social life I guess. :p

177cmGuy said on 28/Feb/15
195-196cm is a good estimate. Surprising thought he got cut from his high school basketball team at age 15 due to only being 5'10 and for having average basketball skills. Guess he prooved them wrong in both ways.
Bob said on 28/Feb/15
I believe that he is a legit 6'6. He is slightly bent in this picture. Scottie Pippen was a legit 6'9.
Tunman said on 15/Feb/15
Manning's head could be 25,5 or 26cm at most and his forehead possibly 13 cm.
Maybe a little big indeed though at his height 25 cm could be average.
I think he's slightly closer to the camera with Bolt
Maybe MJ and Bolt are both 195 after all?
dietmar said on 8/Feb/15
Lol, Peyton Manning has indeed a huge forehead. With normal size of head he would be a regular 193cm guy.

Click Here

Anyway, i have allways suspected Usain Bolt is not a full 196cm guy, he is moore like 194-195cm. Just like Michael Jordan.
Duhon said on 6/Feb/15
That picture of Bolt and Peyton is funny. If it wasn't for Peyton's ridiculously sized head/forehead, it looks like Bolt would be physically taller overall.
dietmar said on 5/Feb/15
Michael Jordan appears to be the same height as Usain Bolt Click Here

On the other hand, Usain Bolt seems to be shorter than Peyton Manning (196cm) Click Here

So, my guess is Jordan is no moore than 194cm. Same height as Usain Bolt. Charles Barkley says he is 195cm, so reckon that's what he is.
height said on 3/Feb/15
I'd say list him at his more accurate measured height, which is 6'4.75".

The thing about this site it's that it list MJ as being taller than Barkley, when it's actually the other way around. Barkley has always been taller than MJ.

MJ is 6'4.75" / 6'4.88" (195cm) barefooted and 6'6" in athletic shoes.

Barkley is 6'5.5" (197cm) barefooted and 6'6.5"+ in athletic shoes shoes.

Was measured 6'4.88 for the 1992 olympics i read somewhere,and that's enough to call him a weak 6'5 which i believe he is.

[Editor Rob: 6ft 5.75 maybe, but 6ft 6 could be as equally possible.]
MrTBlack said on 25/Jan/15
To be fair, he doesn't ever look 6'4.5". But you guys should realize how massive 6'5" is. Also factor in that alot of shoes give people 1-1.5" gain so if you see a 6'5" man, he'd be 6'6.5" in shoes and would have to duck through doors since most door frames are 6'8".
Danimal said on 24/Jan/15
Michael Jordan was somewhere between 6'4.5" and 6'5" in his prime. 6'6" in shoes. Barkley was 6'5.5" barefoot.
Lillo thomas said on 24/Jan/15
Michael jordan is 6'5 max . 6'6 barefoot is BS for MJ.
Judd said on 23/Jan/15
I always thought he was 6'6". IMO he's a strong 6'5", so 6'6-6.25" is fair!
He has at least 4" on Barack Obama (legit 6'1") and he's visible taller than Will Smith (6'1.25-1.5")...He could be a legit 196 cms:

I remember saw old footage of him in the eighties. He looked skinny and not big compared to other players. I think he was still growing though. I know he is a really guy because he plays basketball and is a legend. I think now he is 195cm.

@Chris Dude just stop the madness. Kobe was never measured at the pre draft camp because he chose to "skip" it. His wife was the one who measured him at 195cm. In person he looks 194cm-195cm. In pictures Kobe Bryant, Charles Barkley both appear to be the EXACT same height as Jordan. All 3 of these guys also have a very similar body type i.e. average legssuper long torso. If MJ is 6'6 then that would make Dennis Rodman over 6'7 and Scottie Pippen over 6'9! Jordan is 194-195, end of story. Quit upgrading people man.
Chris said on 20/Oct/14
Charles Barkley was well over 6'7 in his police mugshots. He's almost 6'8 in them. Shoes add about an inch. So Barkley is probably close to 6'7 flat footed. Barkley is about half an inch taller than Jordan in photos. An inch at the very most. It's pretty obvious Jordan is close to 6'6 if not over it
[Editor Rob: Barkley looks as if he's looking down a bit at the camera, so it's a given that his mugshot is adding height.]
Chris said on 20/Oct/14
Kobe Bryant is 6'5. That was his pre draft measurement without shoes. Jordan is taller than Kobe. Quite clearly.

If Jordan isn't 6'6, he's very close to it. They would have just rounded his height up, for the official stats
Chris said on 20/Oct/14
ab - 6.475 is actually 6.5. You round up height. So Kobe is 6'5
Chris said on 20/Oct/14
Short guys love to claim there's some sort of conspiracy against them. They bring everyone down an inch then say "well he's the same as him!"
James said on 16/Oct/14
Jordan, in my opinion, is a very strong 6'5" flat. His height was never more deceiving than when he tried to play baseball. His legs are so long, he was so lean (just over 3% body fat in his prime, NOT NOW!) and he has a 7 feet wingspan. Those features made him appear to be much taller than 6'5." As most people know, he also has absurdly large hands. Those huge hands hanging off super long arms also made him appear longer. I remember when he used to rebound basketballs in a full palming motion. Very very few NBA players can come close to doing that. Finally, most of MJ's footwear choices make him look, if anything, shorter b/c they are usually low heels, especially in dress shoes. He's a tall guy, with even taller features, but still noticeably shorter than former similarly sized teammates, Pippen and Rodman. I grew up idolizing this guy but from lawyers that I know in D.C., I hear that he is a straight-up egomaniac jerk. Also, a terrible NBA General Manager and identifier of talent. Ironically, he is the best of all-time on the court but that's about where it ends. His riches are not a fluke but they are nowhere near his creation. Faulk, his agent, is to thank for just about everything. Finally, no accusations toward MJ, because I don't know if this is true at all....but I have heard, from unnamed people in the know, that he read at a 3rd grade level when he got to Carolina. I hope that is not true. Majored in Geography, which is where I heard that UNC puts all of their academically-challenged athletes. Once MJ made the NBA and people realized that he was so good, Nike and the Bulls hired a swarm of people to further educate and polish him up for being a commercial-making, product-selling god. Despite all the bad things I've head about MJ, the kid in me will always idolize him. 6'6" in his frequently worn golf shoes.
KROC said on 26/Sep/14
Payr just shut it lmao. Your the one who started this crap. Dude his predraft measurement was exaggerated just like Allen Iverson, Chris Paul, Shaq (well they fixed his) and a handful of others. In person Wade does not look anything over over 6'3. He has great posture too. Look at pictures of him Lebron James. No way. Lebron has even said himself that Wade is 6'3 at the most. I think he's more reliable then some retard who read a measurement on the internet. But whatever you are entitled to your "opinion"

For 7/19/14 posting, I like your heights for Jordan, Barkley, and Kobe. I'm not so sure about magic johnson. All photos including the dream team,team picture indicate Bird is 1.5 to 2" bigger than magic. I think magic was 6'7" at best.This would put bird height at what you said.I also think from seeing rodman/pippen/jordan photos that rodman appears to be 1.5" bigger than jordan and 1.5" smaller th
an pippen.My guess would be rodman 6'6 1/4 ,pippen 6'7 1/2.

@Payr
Dude shut up. There is two inches between them. Look at the behind the scenes for that particular photoshoot on YouTube. Jordan consistently had two inches on Wade and Jordan isn't even a legit 6'5. Kobe always has two inches on Wade and he isn't even a legit 6'5. Kobe's lying about Wade's height to support his listed height. Wade is 6'2.5-6'2 34. Now be a good Lil boy and go somewhere.

Lol at least two inches?! You are not bright. The average forehead is 4 inches and the top of his head and you're saying at least two inches! You are a joke. The measurement s are more accurate than your opinion. There is an Olympic s team photo and wade looks only an inch shorter. Not two inches! Kobe even said he was 6-4 and some change

RP, that's just completely false.

Barkley in his police mugshot is nearly 6'8! He was obviously in his shoes. But that means he's obviously 6'6 barefoot. He's probably taller than that in fact.

Jordan is about 0.5 inches shorter than Barkley in most pictures. So he's obviously between 6'5.5 and 6'6

True barefoot heights at peak: Jordan 6'4 7/8", Barkley 6'4 7/8", Kobe 6'4 3/4", Magic 6'7 5/8", Bird 6'8 1/2", Pipppen 6'7 1/2", Rodman 6'6 3/4", LeBron 6'7 1/2"

Kopbe looks about 1/2 to 3/4 in shorter than me. So I think he must be almost exactly 6'5" in bare feet. The below photo is proof.

My cousin was a professional basketball players listed 1`94. He saw the 1996 NBA finals live in Chicago and Seattle and told me all players were much shorter than their listed heights. He said Jordan was his height.
IMO Jordan is at least 1`95
Sal said on 29/Apr/14
I'd say you are in the ball park but every video or photo I've seen with Jordan and Barkley, Barkley is about a half inch taller. If Jordan is 6'5" then that would make Barkley 6'5.5" as he claims he is. If Jordan is 6'4" which is what the olympics measured him at then it would make Barkley 6'4 and 5/8" which is what the olympics measured him at.
Lillo thomas said on 8/Apr/14
Chris are you blind ? Neyo is taller than jordan shoulder level . From the top of the head to the shoulder is 1 feet difference. Neyo is exactly in jordan chin level. That's 9 inches. By the way jordan was never a legit 6'6 in his peak. Infact I don't think he lose any height yet. Young jordan looked taller because he weighted considerable less. Still the same height.

Hold on just a second Rob. He looks almost a foot taller than 5.8 NeYo. He simply looks every bit of his peak 6.6 and going by that pic I would buy 6.7 or 8.

@Joe

It could have been a discrepancy of some sort. More then likely he was really measured at 6'2.75. There's a reason why his teammates tease him about his height. In reality he's pretty undersized for a 2 guard. To put it in perspective, if he was really measured at that height, they would have him listed at 6'5...

he was measured at 6-4 1/2 according to pat riley which was right before the draft....the commentator on the nba pre draft tv viewing even said that nba height listings are with shoes on, so I don't get how people say "well people keep growing after 18" yet they were listed the same exact height since they were drafted....that's not the case it has to do with the listings being with shoes on...Kevin Durant and Perkins are the same height and Perkins measured 6 8 1/2 without shoes or 6-8 3/4...Kevin Durant may be taller but not much... he's really 6-9 and maybe some change without shoes.

these combine measurements are in the morning and so are the nba pre draft measurements.....morning height is a little off because when you are laying down you are taller due to compression of the spine and most of the day you aren't that height when you get out of bed....gravity makes you lose that height during the day

Small people talk and talk...theres no way he is that tall? And why is that!
Because the people that comment here are all between 54 and 58 and their dream was to be taller.Thats why!
I dont know Jordans height in the morning or after he goes to sleep,but he is very tall and certanly between 196 and 198 cm.
Lo sgozzatore said on 24/Jul/13
Yeah, Lorne. I think these big guys do loose at least an inch from morning to evening so they could be 6'6 in the morning and a little under 6'5 in the night?
Lorne said on 2/Jul/13
Rob, is it possible that big guys like Jordan, Barkley and Kobe could lose up to 4cm in a day? It is just mind boggling. MJ was measured 6ft4.88(or somewhere round there) which would make him 195cm evening, yet he looks legit 6ft5, and indeed you upgraded him from 194cm to 196cm. Kobe was supposedly measured 194-195cm(can't remember which) yet clearly is a 6ft5 guy. Barkley I believe is the 195cm he is listed at(though can look taller) so his measurement is legit. But MJ and Kobe are both taller than they're measurements. Could it be they vary more than a regular person? For example, Jenny can drop under 5'8 at night, yet wakes up 5ft9. Could it be Jordan is a guy who measures over 6'6 out of bed and drops to 195cm evening???

IR said on 20/Jun/13
MJ is 6' 6", yes, when he wears shoes like everybody else. He has mentioned that Dennis Rodman is half an inch taller in one of the youtube videos, you'd figure the man who has been with Rodman in person from 95-98 with the Chicago Bulls would truly know that for himself. I guess we should tak his word for it and upgrade MJ's height to 6' 6"? if Rodman was listed 6' 6.5" before on this site.
Lo sgozzatore said on 20/Jun/13
Yeah. But you think he might be a big 6'6 guy? Look at him with Phelps: there's a pic where he actually looks about 4 inches taller. If Phelps is 6'3, which he may not be, this guy looks at least 6'7
Lorne said on 19/Jun/13
Thank you! I always thought Kobe was actually close to his 6'6 listing, he has a good 4 inches on Steve Nash, and can look near 5 inches taller. I can Believe a 6ft4.75in measurement, but he honestly looks 6'5, and 6'4.5 is clearly too low. And I haven't seen any evidence of this measurement,aside from anecdotal. Kobe isn't less than 195cm, and he honestly looks 6'5.
Lo sgozzatore said on 18/Jun/13
Rob, i already asked you about Kobe Bryant. I know. I've read somewhere he got measured at 6'4.5 but if you compare him with some of celebs you listed here he can look at least 6'6! I'm not saying he is that tall though. Just see him with Chris Paul, that you have at 182. He can look 15-16 cms taller or a Michael Phelps that looks 4 inches shorter in some pics. Whats your guess?
[Editor Rob: well I thought if this guy was measured just under 6ft 5 he may well be, but looking at him just now...maybe it's too low or he was measured standing with poor posture.]

Well, 6'4.5, 6'4.75 - really close.

6'5" is bang on for mj.perfectly explains his 6'6' nba listing.and him being a little taller than 6"4.75" Kobe Bryant(listed 6'6") as measured by his wife.And a little shorter than 6'5.5"(listed 6'6"-6'7") Julius Erving.

A full inch ? In some pics Jordan can look taller than barckey and other pics barckey can look taller than Jordan . Both guys are the same height in reality .
El Mariachi said on 27/May/13
Come on, Jordan is a legit 6'6". He has a full Inch on Charles Barkley.

Larry johnson was measured at 6'5.5" barefoot Click Here So 6'5" right on the dot for jordan in that pic?
jimmy said on 15/Apr/13
I don't think that he is under 6'5". I think that he is a strong 6'5" guy.He looks .5" taller than Barkley and very close with Larry Jonson.

Taken from the Charles Barkley Thread:

For most Basketball players, take their listed height and remove 1,5 inches and you will have much closer to their true height.

For those that are over 7ft, usually there is not much tampering with their height and they get listed at their true heights.

Example: Manute Bol was 7ft 6.75 in, they listed him at 7ft 7in. Had they listed him at 7ft 9in, Guiness World Records would have refuted it, since they also measured, Mr. Bol.

Basketball players (at all levels) height's are measured first without their shoes and then with them, their listed height is based on their height with shoes rounded to the nearest inch.

In his book, I May Be Wrong but I Doubt It, Barkley states his 6ft 4.75in height. This is consistent with his US Olympic 1992 Measurement, and with his previous statements. Also it is identical to Michael Jordan's measurement and Jordan himself stated in a video that they were the same height.

So at 6ft 4.75in, he is still taller than 99.5% of the world population.
jimmy said on 1/Apr/13
I thought NFL measurements were accurate.He must be a 6'2.5" guy rounded up to 6'3".Yet with Sharapova looks a strong 6'3"(if not more) guy.

Terrell Owens is listed at 6-3 but he is 6-2 at best in reality . Michael jordan is about 6-5 without shoes .

Lol!!! This guy Terrell Owens is listed 6'3".Michael Jordan is closer to camera but he is losing height by leaning his head and yet he looks at least 3 inches taller.Anything under 6'5" for MJ is not acceptable.

I met Jordan when he played baseball. We were almost eye-to-eye. I would say he's about 6'4". I'm 6'2". He was listed at 6'3 when he was at UNC.

---

Jordan was sometimes listed at 6'5" at UNC, but never 6'3". Pat Riley is quoted as saying "Did you know that when Jordan was measured he was only 6-4 and a half, not 6-6 the way he's listed?" I think Jordan is somewhere in the 194 - 195 cm range with along with Barkley and Kobe, 6'4.5" - just under 6'5" for the 3 of them.
jimmy said on 3/Mar/13
lol @ytsan2q.Jordan only 6.4"?That would make Barkley-Bryant 6'.3"1/2-6'3"3/4.Shorter than D.Wade? I can't buy that.I would say he is a strong 1.96 guy.

As listed, owned him by the inch both times. Bank it. Kobe strong 6' 4". Lakers stinkin up the joint.
JFM said on 10/Feb/13
I'm 6'3'. I met Ray Allen in the Fall of 2011 at a Boston Hotel nightspot. He was with Paul Pierce. Ray Allen is 6'5" while Pierce looks to be 6'6" or 6'7"...both legit heights...
cobra said on 10/Feb/13
Charles Barkley has also claimed in his book 6-4 3/4 in his stocking feet, and Jordan always looked a similar height.
JFM said on 8/Feb/13
Michael Jordan & Kobe Bryant must be 6'6'. Over the years, I've seen Jordan and Kobe stand next to Paul Pierce and Ray Allen at the free throw line but obviously at different times and they all look about the same height. I'm 6'3" without shoes. On one ocassion, I met and spoke with Pierce and Allen in Boston. They were both significantly taller than me. Pierce is an easy 6'6", (probably closer to 6'7"), while Ray Allen is a legitimate 6'5". No doubt.
K-Roc said on 20/Jan/13
@LeBron6 I've met Ray Allen on two occasions at NYC's infamous Rucker Park. He looked about 6'4. In that picture, although he's standing closer to the camera Kobe still looks taller.
Duhon said on 16/Dec/12
I'm thinking kobe is a legit 6'5" myself. Seeing him next to other "tallish" celebs he holds his place pretty well. Whether his wife actually measured him at 6'4.75" or not could be irrelevant as she would be far from a professional doing that measurement.
Lillo Thomas said on 15/Dec/12
Both Kobe and jordan are 6-6 in shoes .
Steven said on 13/Dec/12
MJ and Kobe had to be 6'6 if not 6'1 Obama had to be flat 6'0.
Lillo Thomas said on 11/Dec/12
Kobe and Jordan both are about the same height . Kobe himself says the he is in the 6-4 range . Most likely 6-4 3/4 . Like the measurement his wife did .
Dant said on 10/Dec/12
stop downgrading people. Kobe and Jordan is in the same height Click Here
Lillo Thomas said on 30/Oct/12
Michael Jordan is looking like a legit 6-6 in shoes next to Neyo . NeYo is 5-8 or about 5-9 in shoes . I see 9 inches between them . Michael Jordan isn't a legit 6-6 . He is about a inch shorter than Dennis rodman . Rodman is a legit 6-6 or maybe 6-6.5 tall . Jordan is atleast 2 inches shorter than scottie pippen . In person Jordan will look 6-6 to almost everyone . The difference between 6-6 and 6-5 is barely notable .
Me said on 29/Oct/12
looks 6'6 in that pic with neyo.
Desann said on 28/Oct/12
On this pic, Jordan looks a legit 6'6" as his height is stated with that mark on every website. Let alone 6'5".
Mr. Kaplan said on 26/Oct/12
Jordan has crazy long legs in relation to his upper body.
J-Dog said on 26/Oct/12
6'5" for Jordan is fair and accurate, good upgrade Rob!
leonari said on 11/Oct/12
I always thought Barkley is taller. Always.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 9/Oct/12
6'5 is good, he looks to have half an inch on Kobe Bryant.
leonari said on 26/Sep/12
When will folks understand that NBA players get listed IN shoes... Some posters here have what I call" a long line" . Takes ages until some facts sink in...
Mathew said on 23/Sep/12
Rob, have you seen this:
Riley gave me one of those condescending looks he's so good at. "You see," he said, "this is the problem with you media people. You just don't understand basketball. Did you know that when Jordan was measured he was only 6-4 and a half, not 6-6 the way he's listed?"

He generally gives off a 6 ft 6 impression like Kobe and Tim Robbins so barefoot likely very close to the 6 ft 5 mark legitimately.

@Joo Even if NeYo is only 5'6" Michael Jordan is still 6'5" because he has a full head on NeYo and 2-3 inches more!
LeBron6 said on 2/Sep/12
@João Ray Allen is a legit 6'5" with 6'4.75"+ Kobe Bryant Click Here
No way ray Allen is 6'3"
LeBron6 said on 31/Aug/12
@João 193 cm? that's a joke.in the 1st pic with Gary Payton look at the way mj's legs are. In the pic with Danny Ainge he has a huge camera advantage and hair that makes him look even taller. in the pic with Drazen Petrovic look at the way mj is standing. and there is only 1 pic with mj and kobe that you can judge height off of, and mj is wearing house slippers and kobe is wearing thick heeled dress shoes. He has atleast an inch on 6'3.75 d wade.

I prefer the 1992 Olympics measurement of 193 cm. He looks no more compared to the european players of the era like Alberto Herreros, Villacampa, Petrovic or Perasovic.

-Compared to Gary Payton (measured 189 cm in 1996 olympics) looks slightly taller

I don't know nothing for sure and a lots of photos of Michael Jordan on the internet has people on diferent planes, difficult angles (for height predict purposes) and the ground level inclined.
But for me Jordan seems to be 193 cm.
jtm said on 29/Aug/12
i doubt neyo is 5'8. he looks more like 5'6.
LeBron6 said on 29/Aug/12
oh my god rob he's the greatest athlete of all time just give him a full 6'5" as he looks it.
[Editor Rob: I'm going to do that for Michael]
LeBron6 said on 28/Aug/12

Rob, he has at least 0.25 inches on Kobe who is at least 6'4.75 in this pic that was taken in 1998. And Jordan might be even slouching a bit since his hands are on his hips. Could Jordan be 6'5"+ Since he was always slightly taller then kobe? I think we need an upgrade. This right here is spot on.
[Editor Rob: I was going with the 195cm but 196 might also be possible]
LeBron6 said on 26/Aug/12

What do you think? Is 6'5"+ possible?
Shaun said on 25/Aug/12
Yes indeed, looks about an inch shorter than 6'4" Eli Manning, good catch. Seems the NFL height listings seem to be pretty accurate from what I've seen. If you were to start a page for Phelps the most decorated Olympian in history then I'd go with 6'3".
Shaun said on 25/Aug/12
I think Rob's right, its very difficult to buy anything over 6'3" next to Kobe and Deron. If he is 6'3" tops though a lot of the other swimmers need a downgrade by an inch. Height is tough to call sometimes as in some pics people who are supposed to be the same height look taller depending on angle or footwear/posture and it can baffle you at times. Phelps can look 6'4" but he looks barely 6'3" in those basketball comparison pics.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 25/Aug/12
I neither saw you added him! Great job!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 25/Aug/12
Rob, you told me Michael Phelps could be 6'3.5 or close to 6'4 in any case, when i clearly said he couldn't be. Now you say he's not over 6'3? You changed your mind?
[Editor Rob: I never added till yesterday, when I managed to have a look at him and thought it's likely he's not over 6ft 3 now.]
Shaun said on 24/Aug/12

Yikes, Deron Williams on the left is actually "listed" as a Basketball player at 6'3" and looks like he edges Phelps out, even accounting for him being closer!
