@Rising force: Jordan is not quite as tall as Kobe. 90% of the pics you see Kobe is taller and to that effect someone I know who's met both even with the tiny difference said Kobe is taller in person (he's a NBA scout) and he actually said Kobe is 6'5 and Jordan is my height. 1/4" i can't argue esp since he met Kobe earlier in his career (don't know if he had hair either when he did but not worth splitting hairs). The 195cm came out in 2008 so at 30 maybe had had lost 1/4" maybe not maybe hair maybe not. But clearly below Barkley isn't taller than Kobe it actually is the other way around. I can't see their shoes but presumably they're similar since both in suits. But my guess is Barkley maybe closer to 6'4" now being older. I mean if you see how he walks now he is hurt from his career and very overweight but still kno for a fact he wasn't 6'5.5. Paul Pierce is "about" 6'6" you're correct. But he was listed 6'7" long before those two came in 08. He was listed 6'7" when he played with Antoine walker in the early 2000s (I looked it up). And the only reason he may have even been listed 6'6" for the first year is because when they drafted him he played with those guys and played the 2 and the 3. As you know I was about 6'4.5 peak (still am near it) and on my basketball roster in college was 6'50 the first year and midway through that year thereafter because I played forward thereafter. 6'6" barefoot is tall for a true 2 guard (miller was near 6'6 and visibly taller than Jordan and Kobe were). Did you notice Vince carter? He was listed at 6'7" but only when he was playing forward in Toronto for a year then back down to 6'6" when he moved to the 2 permanently and the same with Kobe he was 6'7" as a 3, when he played with Eddie Jones then Jones left he was 6'6". Carter at absolute most is a solid 6'5 (Richard Jefferson said Vince is 6'4 1/2, 6'5 on a good day). My guess for carter is he's 195cm maybe at best 195.58 Kobe is 194.75-195. So being listed on the roster is to for your position and Barkley as a power forward has no reason especially when Dr J was listed 6'7" not to be listed the same if he were really as tall as Dr J. By the way Dr J called Barkley 6'4" as did Moses Malone and mo cheeks called him 6'4/6'5 in Philly. Julius Erving was taller than Barkley by an inch in the best photo together that was clear

Rising Force: since their measurements are 1/8" apiece I will call Kobe and Barkley to close to call. Barkley however isn't any taller than Kobe and Christian said it perfectly that 1/8" isn't detectable unless you have a stadiometer or tape.

Click Here

For that I'll leave them both where Rob has them and call Barkley a roundup. Usually when 1/8" rob rounds down however. As for strahan and Kobe or strahan and Barkley it's less than an inch with either.

Christian I agree! Strahan (like Bobby mentioned below) isn't any shorter than Brady is. He is taller than guys like Marino who are near that 191/192 mark (I met Marino before and had him by roughly an inch so agree with Rob).
RisingForce said on 7/Jun/17
I don't believe Kobe is taller than Barkley at all. Kobe was almost identical to Michael Jordan in some good comparisons back in 2007 while Barkley was more visibly taller than Barkley. Canson, the photo does show Barkley taller than Strahan, but it's a bad photo. We have to guess whether Strahan is losing more from posture or gaining more from being closer to the camera. On top of all of that, we can't even see their feet. Honestly, the pic proves nothing, but my point was that the one pic we do have, Barkley is taller in so there's no basis for saying they're about the same. I won't use it for my argument that Barkley is 6'5.5" either because it's just a dodgy pic. As for Kobe in Strahan, in the 4th pic, Kobe actually does look 6'4.75", though in the first he looks over 6'5", more like 6'5.25"-6'5.5". I think if you consider both pics, and the back to back, it'd be fair to call Kobe about 6'5" in comparison.

@SJH

I gotta agree with Canson. I can't see Strahan below 6'4" at night. He wasn't any shorter than Vaughn and Vaughn himself isn't anything under 6'4" even today.
Canson said on 6/Jun/17
@SJH: it wouldn't surprise me one bit if strahan is shorter than Barkley based on how he measured at the combine but I doubt the difference is that much. At most 1/2". I don't think Strahan is under 6'4" even today. Kobe looked maybe 1 inch taller maybe less. My guess is that he is 195 strahan 193. And Kobe has Barkley by a hair 195 vs 194.

The 4th pic is the best of the two most clear and it's not even a full inch but I also shows that Barkley is not much taller at all than strahan Rising Force. Kobe is taller than Barkley by a hair

Canson said on 6/Jun/17
@Rising Force: strahan measured 6'4.25 at the combine (don't know what time of day) so I'd imagine Barkley is taller than he is by maybe 1/2". Btw which photo shows Barkley taller? This one does not by the way. And by the way strahan leaning his head (you know he is but don't want to admit it) makes his eye level lower. Seems like there is an excuse for this pic
S.J.H said on 5/Jun/17
@Canson

Don't get foooled by the camera angle. Strahan is closer to the camera and we can't see their footwear, barkley really can be 1.25' taller. By using kobe comparison with strahan we can see min 3cm between kobe and strahan also alot of different angles but could tell they look 3-4cm apart and one of a close up picture can visible see strahan had 1cm hair tip and kobe is complete bald with no hair advantage. If kobe can be like 3-3.5cm taller than strahan then barkley is no way under 3cm taller. 6'3.5 is fair for strahan that he might be 6'3.75 few year back and was measure 6'4.25 morning during NFL days. Losing a fraction is not impossible for michael strahan as he reach 46 now
RisingForce said on 2/Jun/17
Yes, he's leaning but he's also closer to the camera and Barkley's eyes and shoulders are noticeably higher. I agree the pic doesn't prove anything, but you can't say they're the same height when the one photo of them shows Barkley clearly taller.
Canson said on 31/May/17
@Rising force: strahan is leaning obviously so it's hard to tell
RisingForce said on 28/May/17
Strahan definitely isn't as tall as Barkley, he's visibly shorter just as I'd expect the one time I've seen them together: Click Here 6'4.25" is accurate for Michael, though.
Canson said on 27/May/17
@SJH: he's about as tall as Barkley is can't be that low. I'd say maybe 6'4" lowest

Michael strahan is lucky if he hit 6'3.5 let alone 6'4.25
Canson said on 6/May/17
193 at his lowest
berta said on 5/May/17
he always looks atleast this heioght can looks from this and up to 195 but if it says that number then he probably is this height
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
@Bobby: I can see that. Duhon posted a pic of strahan and Kobe on Kobes page. Kobe looked 2cm to a full inch taller. Possible strahan's hair added and made him 6'4.25 when drafted or that it wasn't a low measurement was higher. Which adds up with Kobe measuring 195cm as that was likely around his lowest. Also see Michael Jordan who is 6'4.5 next to Brady and he's 1/2" taller so I'd put Brady 6'4" normal low
bobbyh3342 said on 22/Apr/17
rob has it right(again) same size as tom brady if he drops below ,its only at night and only a c hair below 6'4
Nick said on 10/Apr/17
Ok Michael is 193cm so that makes the rock how tall? Click Here
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
Shiva agreed prime a strong 6'4" today maybe only gets down to solid 6'4" no higher
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 31/Mar/17
Canson said on 25/Mar/17
@SJH: that's possible. Of course with the height loss. He could lose an inch. I'd have guessed he's slightly under 197. Like right at 6'5.5 or maybe 6'5.4 and comes down to about 6'4.65-.75

-------

I doubt Kobe loses a full inch throughout the day. He doesn't seem to have a long spine in relation to his height. Guys like you, me and Kobe (6ft4-6ft6 range guys) typically lose about 3/4"-7/8". Guys who lose 1+ inch are usually over 6ft8.
shiva 181 cms said on 31/Mar/17
Strahan is a solid 193cms guy at his lowest 6'4 is lowest I could see for this guy
S.J.H said on 27/Mar/17
True Canson. Anyway michael strahan is no way more than 192cm for his lowest just like tom brady.

@Canson

Sometime i even think kobe can be few mm over 197cm out of bed and drop to 195cm. 194.75 could be lowest
Canson said on 20/Mar/17
@S.J.H: Kobe is def 6'5" out of bed more like 196.5-196.7 prob and 194.75 maybe at night
S.J.H said on 19/Mar/17
@Wide Gap

Kobe bryant is only 195cm he make strahan look 191cm on nickelodeon award night. kobe had a cm footwear advantage. Strahan is only 192cm at his low and comfort 6'4-6'4.25 in the morning

Click Here see this for your reference. 6'5 is far way off. Kobe is then a comfort 6'5 a real 6'5er in the morning
Wide Gap said on 12/Mar/17
@S.J.H
The reason why I feel comfortable giving Michael Strahan 6'4.25 to 6'5 at best is Michael at times appears taller than both Mannings. I know Eli Manning was measured at 6'4 1/2, and Peyton at 6'5.25, but Peyton has lost height after neck surgery. At other times Eli has appeared much taller than Michael in street clothes, but the same height or shorter in football cleats. Then there's Michael with Vince Young who was measured at 6'4 5/8, he's taller, but Michael is not standing straight up, and if he was there wouldn't be a difference greater than a quarter inch.

Canson said on 9/Mar/17
Him claiming 6'5" is his listed NFL height by the way which is what most pro athletes claim. Very few claim their barefoot heights
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
SJH said it perfectly. We don't know when he was measured and he may only be 6'4" who knows. Problem is that it's the people on this site take whatever pre draft or whoevers pre draft looks the best (usually the tallest) and measures or bell curves everyone against it. So if strahan measures 6'4.25 most want it to be afternoon and a guy who maybe only 1/2 or 1cm taller is 195 cm according to them when they may only be 194 really or maybe even the same if camera angle is off. Then when you prove it it's oh well we didn't see the shoes oh he isn't standing straight etc
S.J.H said on 8/Mar/17
@Mark(5'9.25")

Bad comparison. Strahan is closer to camera on first picture and so much closer to the camera on 2nd picture. Michael strahan is not as tall as we thought. Check on my link

Click Here strahan closer to camera and standing at his max posture with 1/4 more heels than alex you could see it

Click Here Strahan making some tip-toe he is obvious discomfort knowing alexander is taller than him. Alex is really taller than strahan on this clip 0:32-033 watch twice repeatly can be tell military posture strahan still look 1/4 shorter and atually strahan look more like half inch lower than alex.

Moral of tales one measure 6'4-1/4 in the morning and one measure 6'4 before bed. Other thing is strahan might have already loss that 1/4 as he reach 46 this year since will ferrell and the rock have already lost a half inch before 50
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
I think this is reasonable. He has hair as well. He looks as if he is the same height as Charles Barkley is hair to bald head on Barkley so maybe 1/4" difference and he may have lost a fraction after the years of playing so don't see him above this now honestly may even get an 1/8 lower not counting hair
Mark(5'9.25") said on 15/Feb/17
The pictures says otherwise.

Strahan's eye level and top of his head is higher than Skarsgard's eye level and hair level.
jacob said on 10/Feb/17
Rob, there is a video on youtube where kelly and michael interview gwendoline christie. Gwendoline is in about 3-4 inches heels but look similar to michael in height. How can this be possible?
Editor Rob: had a look at the clip and it's hard to tell from the brief moment.
Andrea said on 7/Feb/17
Shouldn't you downgrade Alexander too now, Rob? 😆
Don't misunderstand me, I don't think he's under 6'4.25 and if anything there's much more chance he is 6'4.5 than 6'4 flat but you seemed quite sure he was shorter than Michael! I still think he looked a bit taller than Michael in that clip, no matter what you say... 😋
Anyway, do you think that 6'4.25 figure comes from a draft measurement? If yes, it is possible he's even under this listing because, as we all know, these athletes certainly don't get measured in the afternoon..
Editor Rob: it is extremely rare for a specific figure like the 4.25 to be made up, he's been measured that mark, I would say with absolute certainty.
berta said on 7/Feb/17
hm this means that vince is also littel over 6 foot 4. because starhan was the one who could almost look taller. while alexander loked the same.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 7/Feb/17
He did edge out Skarsgard going by the top of their heads. Strahan even has higher shoulders. 192 cm is unlikely no matter how one looks at it.
S.J.H said on 6/Feb/17
@Lucho

I don't think so. They might just measure right anytime in the morning and falls into 192cm zone walking in the evening
Lucho said on 5/Feb/17
Brady was taller than him
S.J.H said on 5/Feb/17
@Wide Gap

If michael strahan was 6'4.75 on a good day that would make kobe bryant 6'5.75 on a good day. optimistically he can be 6'4.25 in morning and drop to 6'3.75 this low. A real 192cm guy with dress shoes could easily give impression being about 6'5

Click Here Kobe look 1.5" taller and if kobe had like 0.5" more footwear so not under 1" taller than strahan

Click Here Kobe shoes look about 1.1"

Click Here Strahan sneakers look about 0.6"

Click Here Pause at 0:34-0:35 seconds real comparison strahan doesn't look taller than 191cm if ryan reynolds is only 188cm.
Wide Gap said on 27/Jan/17
Michael Strahan was measured at 6'4 1/4 so yeah he's big, 6'5 in shows, but no bigger than 6'4 3/4 on a good day.
This Pro Football article from 1993 list MS at 6'4 1/4, I think this height is confirmed when Micheal stands next to 6'4 1/2 Justin Tuck.

Editor Rob: a good find, it makes sense...they don't come out with 6ft 4 and 1/4 unless the guy has measured around that mark.
S.J.H said on 15/Jan/17
Michael strahan look about 1.5" shorter than kobe bryant on nickelodeon show but i have see full picture footwear on strahan had 0.5 less advantage than kobe bryant. If put this way kobe bryant were 6'5 on that day then michael strahan is a decent 6'4 and his a little over 6'4 claim was measure in the morning that makes sense. Other way to say is strahan look about 4cm shorter than 195cm kobe bryant but not quite atually like 3.5cm and i have see strahan footwear look 1.5cm less than kobe bryant so strahan is 193cm 6'4 on the dot he didn't lie on a little over 6'4 which could be measure earlier the day.

If you can just go and youtube michael strahan vs john cena armwrestle, you will eather downgrade cena or boost strahan, he seem near cena like 6'6

Rob Gronkowski has 2" inches on Strahan. Gronkowski was measured 6'6.25" at the combine, but maybe nowadays is 6'6.5"?
Sean said on 15/Jul/16
Rob, spot on with Strahan being 6'4.5". On Good Morning America this week he had the Rock and Jesse Palmer on the show. Jesse Palmer is 6'2" and the Rock looked dead on 6'3". There is also a pic of Strahan and Roman Reigns online and Strahan had him by 2 inches in the pic and you have Reigns listed here at 6'2.5"
berta said on 10/Jun/16
perfect listing on a good day could be 195 he looked rougly 1 cm taller than Skarsgård and 1 cm taller than vince Vaughn. Around 5 cm taller than the rock
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/16
Rob, is he worth an add?
Editor Rob: eventually maybe, I would need to see him in some clips to get a sense if he's a big 6ft 5er.

He was officially listed 6ft5 by the Raiders. I've no reason to doubt that. He looks to edge out Strahan and he towered over John Travolta in Broken Arrow aswell as Costner in 3000 Miles To Graceland
Editor Rob: yeah he looks in that range.

He looks shorter than 6'4 Lauren Williams. She took off her high heel shoe and looks a tad taller than Stahan...

Rob, how tall would you estimate Lauren Williams, the woman reported to have the longest legs in America? I believe she was listed at 6'4" for volleyball. What would you put her at? Here she is next to Strahan on his show:

Editor Rob: yes she's probably around 6ft 4, her inseam may well be close to 40
Fern194cm-192cm said on 8/May/15
If you accout for the fact that graham's head is closer to the camera then you realize that they are very similar in height. In fact, they were both measured 6,6.25 and both look it. No debate here. SAme height
joe 193cm night said on 5/May/15
Rob, do you think Rob Gronkowski it stops here it legitimate 6'6 with Jimmy GrahamClick Here
[Editor Rob: Jimmy appears a bit taller but then small things like shoe/camera distance could account for visual difference even when you have both guys measuring roughly same height.]
Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/15
Their proportions are very different though, Skarsgard has that "stretched" look of a typical skinny 6'4" er and longer neck and head profile, while Strahan just looks solid and normal proportions.
joe 193cm night said on 1/Mar/15
Andrea,look at this page in the latest images Alexander with his brother Sam 6'5 (196) the only guy who could be taller so he a true 6'5 highest surely that ManganielloClick Here
Andrea said on 1/Mar/15
There's maybe not enough to say Alexander is taller, apart from Michael who himself says to be shorter and the scene where they stand next to each other where Alexander seems to be taller, but there's not enough either to say Michael is taller! I personally wouldn't have Alexander shorter than Michael, but it seems you're convinced Alexander can't be 6'4.5, even if next to everybody can easily look it! Alexander came out with both 193 and 194, he might have measured between those marks, so 6'4.25 is still a good guess, but then Michael could be the same... I doubt he's taller...
Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/15
Skarsgard I agree looks to edge him out in that comparison and looked about the same as Manganiello did with him!
Andrea said on 1/Mar/15
Well, why does Michael himself think to be to be shorter? Alexander probably has an higher eyelevel, that's true but i have hard time to believe Michael is the taller one: Click Here
Just look at the top of their heads, Michael is at best the same height of Alexander! At least, upgrade Alexander to 6'4.5 too, he is not shorter than him, really!
[Editor Rob: based on the clip there's not enough for me...the camera could be favouring his side more than it is Michael's.]
Andrea said on 28/Feb/15
Lol, but when they stand next to each other they both stand at their tallest and btw that's the "best case scenario" when you wanna compare two people, because you can't say "this guy could be standing taller"... Seriously, see when they compare each other and trace a line, Michael is not taller and it actually seems like Alexander might edge him out! So, if anything, it would be more appropriate Alexander at 6'4.5 and Michael at 6'4.25...
[Editor Rob: based on the whole clip I wouldn't say Alex was taller, you'd need to measure them to really be able to tell exactly. I wouldn't be putting a bet on him being taller though.]
pablo77bar said on 28/Feb/15
HE IS A LITTLE BIT SMALLER THAN MANGANIELLO
I THINK 1,94 IT'S CORRETCT FOR HIM
Andrea said on 27/Feb/15
Here's the famous video with Alexander Skarsgard:
Click Here
When they stand next to each other who is the taller one, i wouldn't say Michael is taller, really! Rob, you really think there's any chance Michael is taller than him? I mean, he himself says when he meets him "I'm the short guy in the room", he thinks to be shorter...
And maybe it's also worth to put his claim in this page? He says "I'm over 6'4 but not quite 6'5, but i claim 6'5"...
[Editor Rob: I think Strahan when he stands tall could possibly edge him, but you would need to measure them both really, they appear very close.]

More than a downgrade for Joe, i'd say an upgrade for Alex Skarsgard who just doesn't look shorter than him! Michael himself said "i'm the short guy in the room" but they really do look close! Joe certainly can look only 6'4 many times but i can believe he's taller than that if standing for a measurement! I'd give him weak 6'5! In any case, this is a good listing!
Arch Stanton said on 24/Feb/15
Seems a good shout, but the "Manganiello is 6'4" brigade" will be wanting a downgrade for Joe now hehe!
