Comment on the Height of Steve Nash

Triplescrew said on 14/May/15
As a Lakers fan I can say with confidence that Steve Nash is between 5'11.75" and 6'0.25". Might have lost some height due to his back issues...was MAYBE 6'1.25" in the morning as a spry 21-22 year old.

There's this vid, part two of the episode. I'll have to heck to see the exact time but I think it's halfway through. Anyway, it's the source of his 6ft2 claim.
Lorne??? said on 27/Apr/15
Oh, and he also said that growing up, he was always just "average, or above height" and so was always a guard.

It's funny, as soon as him and Ron walked into the studio, the first thing that someone working there said to him was "man, I thought you'd be taller!". Nash replied "really?" With a bit of a smirk.
Lorne??? said on 27/Apr/15
Rob, he claims 6'2.

I was watching iconoclasts this morning, and it featured Steve Nash and Ron Howard meeting each other.
In an interview segment, while referring to himself and becoming a star NBA player, he says

They're aren't many 6ft2, white point guards.".

I think it's clear he's giving shoe height, though nonetheless it is interesting to have a claim from him.
(And at least he isn't claiming 6'3!)

Also, he looks roughly 3.5in taller than Ron Howard, whatever he is these days. (Max 4 inches)
glynny182 said on 17/Apr/15
looks this listed height of 6'1 if not a fraction or a few millimeters under from the research I have done,but near enough so a good, fair and accurate listing once again Rob.
b-mint1994 said on 18/Mar/15
I knew he wasn't 6'3". He could probably dunk if he was....
Lorne said on 25/Feb/15
6ft0.5-6ft0.75, he's not a full 6'1...

One my fave PG's, btw.
Josh said on 20/Feb/15
He seems to be 60.5
WalkingTall6ft3.35 inches said on 17/Feb/15
He does look a 6'1 guy next to 6'1 Ryan Babel and 6'2 Henry Click Here
Daniele said on 2/Jan/15
He's a solid 6'. In the 90s every player was listed from 2 to 3 inches taller than he actually was. Why? Because American talent scouts and fans are just insane when talking about stats, measurements and so on. More than once I heard poeple saying **** like "This guy is too short to play in SG position, this one has such a poor wingspan and will never be a good defender...". Athletes are very sensitive when coming to measurements...

Looking 6'1" next to 5'11.5" Justin Timberlake. Click Here
Judd said on 22/Nov/14
Wow 2" shoes are as thicker as book...
Maybe he had a dictionary under his feet when measured...XD
SaveUsY2J said on 23/Jul/14
If he's 5'11 then David Beckham is 5'9... lol. Would love to see which kind of basketball shoes give a whole four inches of height too
KROC said on 9/Jun/14
Steve Nash is about 6ft I believe. Chris Paul is 5'10.
Duhon said on 9/Jun/14
Brandon says on 7/Jun/14
Chris Paul is 5'11 barefoot. 6'1 sounds good for Steve Nash

Chris Paul measured 5'11.75" barefoot actually.
Brandon said on 7/Jun/14
Chris Paul is 5'11 barefoot. 6'1 sounds good for Steve Nash
Bard said on 19/May/14
6'1 at max, barely taller than Chris Paul who probably isn't 6'
Emmett said on 15/May/14
Most basketball players have 1-2 inches added on to their height, as people have been saying. Point guards tend to be a lot closer to average height then the heights they're listed as, but often still on the taller side by everyday standards.
Yazz said on 24/Apr/14
Hes taller than Donald Trump
steve nash is 5-11 said on 30/Nov/13
stop the video at 26 secs mark and see for yourself
thats not how a 185cm guy look like next to someone whos 178cm
i would say he has only about 3cm on leno minus the spikey hair
that will make him 181cm which is about 5-11 and half
he doesnt even look a legit barefoot 6 feet tall next to leno
steve nash is 5-11 said on 30/Nov/13
this is steve nash on jay leno show . i think this will once and for all , clear any doubts about him being 6-1 or taller than he really is
jay leno is about 5-10 and steve looks about an inch taller at best not counting his spikey hair . this will make him 5-11 . i just dont see him being 3 inches taller here than leno . what do you think rob ?
i dont even think steve is a legit 6 feet tall guy
mike bibby was once on jay leno too and look to be same height as leno
who stood eye to eye with him
so basically mike bibby is also around 5-10
Lorne said on 5/Sep/13
Maybe a fraction under this mark, at worst, but either Way 185cm is a good shout. Meanwhile, the 6ft3 listings are atrocious...
issa said on 14/Aug/13
Lin is 6 ft 3 listed but Rob I think you list nash at 6' 5'11 what Danielle said
KROC said on 13/Aug/13
Agreed Daniele. I think Harden might be around 6'4. I'm still not so sure about Jeremy Lin though.
Daniele said on 12/Aug/13
Kroc you may be right. The year Harden got drafted, measurements took place in the early morning so the reported height is his morning height. Anyway according to me he looks the same of Dwyane Wade.
Daniele said on 11/Aug/13
6'1 listing is wrong. He's around 6'-5'11. Look at him with Kobe: he's definitely not that tall or at least he doesn't seem to be. Jeremy Lin is taller that Nash. He's the around 6'2, Harden is a weak 6'4 (6'3.75) and Parsos is a weak 6'9. Recent draft measurements are rrliable, while measurements taken before 2004 are just crap, like in the case of Nash. Has anyone give at least a brief look at the photos I updated? I guess no...
KROC said on 6/Aug/13
I think James Harden is closer to 6'3. Not so sure about Lin. 6 ft maybe? If Steve Nash is 6'1 then he really makes that height look like crap
issa said on 30/Jul/13
Jeremy lin is'nt 6'1 That would mean James Harden is 6'1 or 2 as well and Parsons would be 6 ft 7 I think he is 6'4 with shoes
issa said on 30/Jul/13
My bad
averagegiant said on 29/Jul/13
carl landry isn't 6'1. That would mean David Lee is 6'1 or 2 as well and bogut would be 6'7. I think he's most likely 6'7 without shoes
issa said on 27/Jul/13
Rob I beilive Carl Landry is 6 ft 1 too
Emil said on 4/Jul/13
I believe Jeremy Lin is 6'1 too
Mark said on 1/Jul/13
I'll say Steve Nash is a legit 6'1"
Daniele said on 1/May/13
Sorry for double-posting, here are some pics:
With Kyrie Irving (listed at 6'1.75) Click Here
With Chris Paul (listed at 5'11.75) Click Here Click Here
Daniele said on 1/May/13
Some pics suggest that he's almost the same of Chris Paul. It's just unbelievable that a 6ft guy is listed at 6'3... He's definitely shorter than other players in 6'1-6'2 range like Rose, Irving and Deron Williams. Why did you list him 6'1 Rob?
J.Lee said on 28/Apr/13
Rob, how tall is the average male american? I know I heard 5 ft 8 or 9, but on this site it seems like most of the males are taller than 6 ft. Are male celebs taller than the average male?
[Editor Rob: the average american is reported from 5ft 9 to 10 range.]
Jd2 said on 16/Jan/13
I have stood very near I'm at a suns charities function. I am 6 ft. 3, and I am sure I was a bit taller.
Trey said on 12/Jan/13
Shorter than Kaka by at least 2-3 cm. Proves he's 183-184 cm tops, it also proves Justin Timberfake is 178-179 cm tops.
blop said on 18/Aug/12
Looks about 2" shorter than 6'2" listed football (soccer) player Tom Huddlestone. Nash is no taller than 184/5cm max and only because we can't see their footwear - Huddlestone may be wearing football studs.

steve was never 6'3'' but then again john stockton wasn't 6'1''. Allen Iverson wasn't 5'11''. steve has great posture for a guy near 40 years old. steve 6'1.5'' i'd say

Anonymous said on 9/Aug/07
Shawn Marion is actually like 6'6 1/4
Anonymous said on 2/Aug/07
Michael Finley measured 6'5 3/4, Steve Nash measured exactly 6'1, Amare Stoudemire measured 6'8 1/2, Dirk Nowitzki measured 6'10 and Shawn Marion measured a legit 6'7
Hajala Babala said on 13/Jul/07
Well maybe it was Kidd's dress shoes, but he looked big, bigger than 6'3. To be fair, I was a bit star struck and I didn't approach him and try to gauge eye level, just estimated the top of his head. Theodoros Plakadopoulos Maybe it was his shaved head making him appear taller also, but he sure seemed to have more way more than .75 inches on myself.
B-baller said on 1/Jul/07
i saw Steve Nash in an intervieuw next to cedric ceballos. Cedric had easy 4 1/2 inches on him. Cedric ceballos is 6'6
AAAA said on 1/Jun/07
I also always wear cons when I am not in my fave frye harness or brando engineer's. I saw him in the gym so I was in my cons at the time. That could have been another reason

Nash is 6'1 1/2, he was standing next to me, i'm 6'3 1/2 and I was around 2 inches taller than him, I saw micheal Finley too, he is around 6'6
Duhon said on 28/May/07
Well that means nash is just short of 6'2". 6'2 3/4 is practically 6'3".
Derek said on 22/May/07
AAAA- Kidd is a measured 6'2 3/4". Nash is indeed 6'1". There is no more than 2" between Kidd and Nash.
AAAA said on 22/May/07
Kidd is listed at 6'4 in many places and I have seen him up close (he lives in Saddle River NJ and his daughter is in a kids class at the gym I go to) He looked as legit 6'4 when I saw him, not padded. I saw Nash up real close one time and he is only 6'1. I had an inch on him.
Jason Lee said on 21/May/07
I dont see Nash as 6'3, jason kidd is listed as 6'3 and leandro barbosa is listed 6'3 so is nash on the nba site, but if u see photos of kidd and nash or barbosa and nash, nash is like 2-3 inches shorter. harris is probably 6'0 with long legs to make him look taller, and nash prob has a longer torso cuz his legs are short
AH said on 16/May/07
It kinda weird. I love Nash but I dont see how he can be 6'3''. He doesnt look like a 6'3'' kinda guy. He doesnt have the frame for it. I have lots of friends who are 6'3'' and their legs are not as short as Nash (no offense). I would say that Nash is about 6'0'' to 6'1'' is the most. He just doesnt look like 6'3'' to me.
random said on 11/May/07
harris is listed at 6-3 u noob....and how u know he's a legit..u have nothing to prove that...being 6 even and 6 1/2 is not much of a's pretty much the same thing....damn....
Beazer Holmes said on 7/May/07
looks about 6-1 to me.
Lil Nash said on 19/Apr/07
harris is 6 foot 2 and steve nash is taller. i agree with that he is 6 foot 3.
AAAA said on 8/Apr/07
He is 6'1. I have actually met the guy. I was shocked I was taller, because he is listed at 6'3.... yeah and I am 6'4.....solid 6-1 guy though, real big looking head
Viper said on 7/Apr/07
Nash isnt 6-0. He might look like that sometimes but hes a legit 6-1.
Anonymous said on 6/Apr/07
ppl have told me he's 6"1...that is probably with shoes on...hes probably 6 even or a little over...6 1/2? maybe...devin harris looks taller than him by atleast an inch....devin is 6"1 3/4 without shoes...probably 6 "2 or 6"2 1/2 with shoes on...hard to find shoes that give u 2 inches
Anonymous said on 6/Apr/07
i think hes more like 6 foot...cause devin harris is only 6"1 3/4 without shoes and hes probably a little over 6 foot with shoes on..since most give u just 1/2 inch more...and he looks nearly 2 inches shorter than harris
Derek said on 24/Feb/07
Kidd is a little over an inch shorter than his listed height. Kenyon is only marginally under his listed height. The NBA never lists people as 6'8 3/4", so they round up.
Anonymous said on 23/Feb/07
So Kidd is 6'3 and Kenyon Martin is 6'9? Kidd isn't much shorter than his listed height than.
Anonymous said on 12/Feb/07
Ronanldinho is actually 5'9 3/4th. They use the 5'11 when he has his soccer cleats on.
Derek said on 26/Jan/07
J-Dog, Kidd is 6'2 3/4" and Martin is 6'8 3/4". Kenyon uses his barefoot height.
AZP said on 26/Jan/07
I saw Steve at a bar and stood right next to him, I'm 5'10 and he look about 6'1/6'2 tops.
J-Dog said on 25/Jan/07
Steve Nash is probably a bit over 6'2" but I am not saying I even have a clue on his height as I haven't studied it enough.

You guys are forgetting I think the average NBA height is 6'6" I think Viper knows the real number, most guys who are 6'4" and below are going to look "small" near these guys.

Jason Kidd is 6'4" but if you look at him on the court near 6'9" Kenyon Martin he looks like a 6' player at times.
G said on 16/Jan/07
I stood next to Nash last year at a charity event. We both had casual shoes on and he was definitely taller than me, but not by much. I just measured myself, and I'm right at 6 feet, 1 & 3/4 inches. I'd say he's 6'2" - 6'2.5"
JT said on 13/Jan/07
Nash looked the same height as 6'3" Cheryl Miller the other night on TNT. Miller's height could be exaggerated of course.
Jordan said on 30/Dec/06
I though he was dead 6'. He always seems like a small dude on th court. I'll give him 6'1" maybe, but definitely no more than that.
Derek said on 9/Dec/06
Phil- Even a legit 6'3" guy will look short next to guys that are at least 6'6"-6'7".
Phil Davis said on 7/Dec/06
I have a bro that is around 6 ft 2 or 3. And I"m only 5 ft 10 1/2. I found out that Steve Nash (My favorite player) was 6 ft 2 or 3, I flipped! He looks tiny on TV, but in reality... He's taller than me!
hey have ne of you guys who sed he's shorter ever considered the fact that you(personally) don't know the difference between someone 6'0 and 6'3. firstly u CANNOT estimate someone's height without standing next to them or seeing them compared to someone else. also i'm sure he is measured accurately opposed to you who prolly do it at home or some shit like dat. di man 6'3 leave it at that! eva considered you might be taller than you think?
Alex said on 11/Nov/06
6'1 plus basketball shoes=about 6'2.5 then rounded up you get 6'3. Thats how he is listed at 6'3.
griswold 1 said on 3/Nov/06
saw Nash at a radiohead concert in Vancouver some years ago - stood right by him (by the way, super nice guy, no ego, friendly) - was barely taller than me (5-10 1/2) so would put him at 6' tops
6 footer said on 9/Oct/06
steve nash 6-1 ?? oh no, i am afraid he might not even be 6-1 in his shoes for crying out loud
whenever he stood next to his fellow pg teammate leandro barbosa, barbosa always look to have at least
3 inches on him, and leandro is also listed at 6-3, which will make steve 6 flat at the most
this site should do a thread about leandro barbosa too, most people (all of you included) just didnt
realized that barbosa is perhaps the only one in the nba listed at his true height, barbosa looks
like a legit 6-3 guy.
jesse said on 3/Aug/06
they list him at 6'3 but hes roughly a head shorter than his team mate shawn marion(6-7) so id put him at 6-1 or 6-2 but hes still my favourite baller
yooooooo said on 24/Jul/06
stand beside him for quite a long time at his charity bball game in vancouver.
theres no way hes 6'3. 6'1 is probably correct
Nashty Lover said on 10/Jun/06
My comment makes no sense, I must have not been paying attention.

What I meant was he looked to be 6'2 1/2" with shoes and probably 6'1 1/2" without shoes.
Nashty Lover said on 8/Jun/06
I met and had a picture taken with Steve Nash before a round two playoff game. It was pre warm up and he had on regular athletic shoes, not basketball, and appeared to be 5 1/2 inches taller than me. Putting him at around 6'1/2". So, I would assume without shoes he's about 6' 1/2" feet tall.

(I have to say he was one of the nicest and most humble people I've ever met, great guy! And so much better looking in person, hubba hubba!)
deepestvoice said on 2/Jun/06
well, Bill Walton has been around tall people people for a long time and he always goes overboard with his commentary. So I doubt he mistakes 6'1 for 5'11 but I don't know for sure. I'll have to look at more pictures.
Ozzy said on 2/Jun/06
Tony Parker is according to the french national team and his own web site: 6'1
deepestvoice said on 31/May/06
Monty, Tony Parker's not 6'2. Even Bill Walton said he was closer to 5'll. Steve Nash never looked 6'3 even though I do think he is at least 6'0.

rj said on 19/May/06
Again, I met Steve Nash and IN HIS BASKETBALL SHOES he is 6'3".
J-Dog said on 16/May/06
6'1" and you have to give him proper respect for being able to play in a giants game.
D.J. said on 3/May/06
The man is no where near 6'3". To be honest, 6' is pushing it a little. He may not even be 6'.
JT said on 14/Apr/06
Saw Nash last night with Craig Sager on TNT. Nash looked about 6'2" or 6'3" next to Sager, who's around 6'4" or 6'5".
a.aL said on 10/Apr/06
I agree, nash looks shorter than steve francis or gilbert.. if u watched games pheonix vs. orlando he was much shorter than francis. I give him 6'0 or at Max 6'1
Jason said on 24/Dec/05
Steve Nash is 6'3''? What's next? Allen Iverson is 6'2''?
Ozzie said on 13/Nov/05
More suprised with 6'9 Jamison in this pic. Yes I know he is standing a bit back, but still?
Jimmyboy69 said on 11/Nov/05
ON average, basketball players are like 6'5"-6'7" but Steve Nash is definitely 6'3"
T-B said on 25/Oct/05
Nash was listed at 188cm (6-2) at the 98 WC in Greece. The same listings had Magloire at 208cm (6-10), not 6-11. (See also the Jordan and Iverson forums).
phast said on 24/Sep/05
Nba players' heights are all over the place. I have worked for many summer camps at my university's gym and some players match their listed height and some don't. Never met Nash but he does look way shorter than 6'3. I know that both Quentin Richardson and Richard Hamilton are about 2" shorter than their listed height but Desmond Mason of the Bucks was around 2" taller. He was w/ the sonics when I met him and would say he's close to 6'7. He's listed as 6'5 but towered over me and I'm 6'3 even. I don't understand overlisting a player's doesn't make you play taller. My school's point guard last year, Joe Sea is listed 6' and is more around 5'9.
Bigg said on 18/Aug/05
yeah this other girl told me she like met him and that he was like tall but not like wow tall she said he's like 6"1...she was still surprised because he looks short on did I and alot of ppl thought that...when there like looking on tv.. and I was like he's listed at 6"3....but he probably lied.. but i think he's 6 foot barefoot in my opinion
Bigg said on 18/Aug/05
soo Steve Nash is 6"1 barefoot or is that with shoes on? because my old friend saw him in a game and said he was 6"1 but told me this other kid in my class was taller than him and he's like 6"2 barefoot probably 6"3 with shoes on....but no one really looks at a person and downgrade considering there shoes are on...sometimes
CoolJ said on 7/Aug/05
Guess Mr. Amir was right.
Kizzle said on 7/Aug/05 look at the bottom of the page were it says STEVE NASH. The article states that NAsh was 6'1" when he got measured for the draft instead of 6'3"

[Editor Rob: thank you my son, here is the quote for prosperity sake: "He looked very good in the predraft camps, other than measuring in at only 6'1"
instead of the claimed 6'3"
Amir said on 27/Jul/05
I play basketball in my homeland Turkey in underage leagues. i meet Nash last year, he is my idol. We stand at the same height, I am officially 184.5cm
Viper652 said on 29/Jun/05
Sean May is 6-7 barefoot
Ball-A-Hallic said on 28/Jun/05
Just like they do in the NBA draft which i've been watchin 2nite they boost a player up by 1 inch like Sean May was 6'81/4 they boosted him up to 6'9 so Nash was probally 6'21/4 n boosted up to 6'3 althought he doesnt look it but then again they r probally measured wit shoes on
Cool J said on 21/Jun/05
He doesnt "quite look like" 6'1.5" barefoot either. This guy isn't even 6'1.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 12/Jun/05
Steve looks like he's 6'1 or 6'1.5 I disagree he's 6'3 jus like Steve Francis and Gilbert Arenas there listed at 6'3 and neither look over 6'0 or 6'1 sp theose 3 r probally all under 6'2
JS said on 10/Jun/05
Wow, I think 187cm is a reach. Do you REALLY think he's 6'1.5" barefoot in that picture below judging that Finley is right around 6'7 with shoe son?
JCS said on 7/Jun/05
I'd say we can safely downgrade him to at least 6'1... probably even 184cm.
Hooleyman said on 7/Jun/05
I saw him in a bar in Victoria, Canada (where he grew up) and I'd guess he's about 6'1" since he was a bit taller than than my 6' buddy he was standing next to.
Mr. R said on 6/Jun/05
For years, I have looked at this guy, and he was always just shrimped by everyone on the court, even some of the refs and commentators. I knew 6-3 was a lie, and I recently saw something that said 6 foot. My guess is he is between 6-0 and 6-1 at best!
Ball-A-Hallic said on 6/Jun/05
I agree that Nash is like 6'0 possibly 6'1 u can jus tell he's not 6' he's never looked over 6'0 2 me.
JCS said on 6/Jun/05
It is widely known Steve Nash is well under this listed height.

Although unofficial, this document lists him at 6'1", however Mike Greenberg and Tony Kornheiser have both stated he is 6 foot even (as they both proclaimed to be 6 foot and saw him at eye level.

I have seen him listed at 6'0 3/4" before, so I would say thats a fair guess.
