The same thing happened to Oscar Tishebwe

Supposedly measured 6-8 at Kentucky pro day but only measured 6-7.25 at the combine.

I believe Simmons 6-8.25 measurement and he should be listed as that
Canson said on 9/Apr/23
@Duhon: I think he’s an inch taller than LeBron so the listings are fair by comparison. However Simmons is closer to
The camera

@Shane: yea I’d say KD is easily at least an inch taller but Rob’s guess of 3 cm is more accurate. Simmons measured 6’8.25 before and that’s what he looks. LeBron should be 6’7.25 being that’s what he measured. KD is ok at 6’9.5”

@Robbe @Canson definitely not a good pic to use to criticize Simmons height when he looked taller than Durant in that photo, which is surprising. What are your thoughts, Canson?
Canson said on 30/Mar/23
6’9.5 in basketball shoes
Duhon said on 29/Mar/23
Ben doesn't look shorter than LeBron Click Here
Canson said on 29/Mar/23
@Mrisaac: he’s taller than LeBron by about an inch in most pics. Robbie’s estimate is on the mark 6’8.25 and LeBron 6’7.25” like he was when drafted
MrIsaac said on 28/Mar/23
He looks shorter than the 6'7 1/2 lebron james, and at least 4 inches short than joel embiid, so he's probably closer to 6'7 than 6'8
Robbe said on 5/Mar/23
In this photo we can see Ben's foot, he is clearly closer to the camera than Klay Thompson is. Yet Ben appears only 6'8.5 range there.

I really can't see Ben more than 6'8.25.
Canson said on 21/Feb/23
@Editor Rob: Simmons only measured 6’8.25” before he was drafted. That’s probably accurate being Embiid looks 3.5”-4” taller usually and KD is probably a solid 6’9.5 or close to it
Duhon said on 19/Feb/23
What's the height difference here between Ben and Durant? Click Here
Editor Rob
Could seem 3cm, although to me it looks like Ben could be slightly closer than Durant.
Canson said on 17/Feb/23
@Shane: yep
viper said on 16/Feb/23
He also measured 6-8.25, so listing him at 6-11 is pretty crazy
Shane Gray said on 15/Feb/23
@Viper he only needed 6'8 1/2" to get a legit roundup to 6'9" using half inches. And there is a high likelihood they measured early in day.
Shane Gray said on 15/Feb/23
@Mickie it's not a laugh imo. Nba heights were almost all in shoes for 40+ years . Out of bed in A pretty tall basketball shoe he would likely be at least 6'10 1/2" and then round up. 6'10" is a fair listing for hin though. He is definitely 6'10" with shoes.
Mickie said on 8/Feb/23
Him being listed at 6'11" is a laugh. As listed is okay.
Canson said on 22/Jan/23
@Viper: that’s likely what was done or he was an out of bed measurement. It could’ve even been something as simple as 6’8 5/8 rounded up
viper said on 19/Jan/23

They did measure in half inches.

He might have measured 6-8.75 and rounded up
viper said on 17/Jan/23
With his LSU team measurement I wonder If he measured 6-8.5 and they rounded it up to
Canson said on 25/Nov/22
@Shane: it was bad enough with the Sixers due to the controversy with Embiid’s height.
Shane Gray said on 24/Nov/22
@Canson I saw that. Simmons is on the worst team in the league to get announced at 6'11" as Durant is clearly taller. He would have been able to pull off keeping 6'11" for that probably anywhere else, but with so much attention on Durants height over the years and Durant being taller, I am sure they felt like they needed to do something, as you suggested.

I'd bet If they aren't on same team in future it will change back.
Canson said on 23/Nov/22
@Shane: They announced him at 6’10 last night against the sixers. The Nets were probably forced to reduce his height because Durant is listed 6’10 and is taller than he is.
Shane Gray said on 16/Nov/22
He's listed 6'11" on multiple rosters, as he should be. He's at or near 6'11" in shoes early in day. Most nba players hate the measurement policy put in place a couple years ago, and rightfully so. Nba heights have been in shoes for 40+ years. These players have been listed in shoes since middle school and all through college.

NBA has updated some players height including Ben Simmons now listed at 6'10"
Canson said on 8/Oct/22
Simmons is less than 6’9”. Claxton has at least 1.5” on him. He could be the 6’8.5 he’s listed but that’s a best case

Everyone keeps forgetting Claxton looks at least 1-1.5 inches taller with his head tilted down. He only measured 6’8.25 when he was drafted
goma76 said on 6/Oct/22
Claxton is officialy listed @6'11"
From draft measurement I've found 6′10” barefoot, 6′11.75” in shoes.
From that pictures Simmos appears not least than 6'9"
Canson said on 6/Oct/22
@Wingspanpro: Claxton’s head is down. That’s close to two inches. Rob probably has him near his lunchtime here and he probably falls to 6’8.25 like he was previously measured. Also Simmons was over 3” shorter than Embiid

@Robbe Cleveland has probably the most conservative height listings in the entire league since the new (trash) policy began.
Shane Gray@ said on 26/May/22
@Viper what is ridiculous about it? Most colleges do measure and list In shoes and many do round up.
Canson said on 20/May/22
He’s at most 3 cm taller than LeBron. May just be a solid inch unless he’s really 6’8.5 and LeBron 6’7” that’s the only way. My guess 6’8.25 and 6’7.25
Canson said on 20/May/22

He can look 4 to 5cm taller than bron

@Ice: he’s a short looking 6’9.5” as well. Notice how his measurement has remained consistent over the 3 years he’s been measured by the sixers? 2019, 20, 21. I wonder if that’s his out of bed measurement or if he was never remeasured. I wouldn’t have expected it this season because he wasn’t with the team in the beginning of the year I don’t think (at least not training camp). I think he’s 6’8.25 afternoon. Maybe he is a guy who can lose a full inch or slightly over and maybe he was 6’9.25-.5 range and they gave him that measurement or it was in sneakers. He was 6’8.25 when he was drafted and doesn’t look over that with 6’11.75”Joel Embiid. Since we know that Durant is 6’9.5 (max) and now that Simmons is with the Nets, I am waiting to see a picture of them together next season. He may be this height listed here at absolute most but I buy this as a late morning or a lunchtime height to be fair and feel 6’8.25 is what he really is. Had the Sixers listed him 6’10 like they did in 2019 when he first measured 6’9.5” and prior to that, it wouldn’t stand out as much. But listing him 6’11” now has drawn serious attention to the fact that he’s overlisted

Click Here

Here he is with Fultz. I have Fultz as a weak 6’3 guy (6’2.5-.75 range) and Simmons looks 6’8.25 max

Click Here

Here is Simmons with 6’8.75 Al Horford. Horford measured 6’9.25 in 2019 but I see that as a morning measurement. He never looked more than he measured at the draft other times like with Embiid for example

Wow, that's short 6'11 looking guy
Canson said on 18/Mar/22
@Viper: I wonder if Simmons is reduced to 6’10 or even 6’9 once he is measured prior to next season’s training camp. He has Durant to stand next to now who is 6’9.5”. Even if they measure Durant in the morning he’s 6’10”. There is no way Simmons is 6’9 afternoon let alone 6’10” or 6’11”. Simmons only “allegedly” measured 6’9.5 with the Sixers

@Editor Rob: you should add that he’s listed 6’11” as of 2020-21 season. Here he is with 6’11.75 Embiid and 6’10” listed Dario Saric. He looks no taller than his pre draft 6’8.25”

I'll mention it...a really bizarre height for him to be given.

@Editor Rob: he doesn’t look more than 6’8.25” with Dario Saric or Embiid. 3.5” between he and Embiid is the minimum it would be. Saric is listed 6’10 but measured 207 overseas. Really looks max 6’8 with Horford

I’ve seen several pics of Simmons and Embiid and it looks 4” in some pics. No less than 3.5”. If less than that it’s only when Simmons has camera advantage

@Robbe: yep the same way Steph Curry shrunk an inch to 6’2 lol. Ben is exactly what he measured at the pre draft 6’8.25”. That’s how he looks with Embiid assuming the latter is 6’11.75”. That’s a solid 3.5” meaning LeBron is max 6’7.25” since there is at least an inch between LeBron and Simmons
Robbe said on 19/Oct/21
Lauri Markkanen is no longer a 7 footer, he has shrunk an inch on the way from Chicago to Cleveland Click Here

Ben is also listed 6'11, so they should be around the same height Click Here

Nah, something went wrong.. 🥴 🥴 🥴
Canson said on 16/Oct/21
@Recapa: I wonder if he was Carried into the facility and laid down to preserve height and got a smidge over 6’9 in the morning and rounded to 6’9.5 or if that was just an in shoe measurement. Lol He and LeBron both got the same treatment. But the more I see of LeBron’s measurement of 6’8.5, the more I believe that they did that to market him as the next Magic being he’s always been compared to him (along with MJ) but has always been more like Magic and because Magic claimed to have been measured at 6’8.5 himself even though pat riley called him 6’8.5 in shoes (effectively making him maximum 6’7.5”). LeBron has claimed 6’7 before as well as 6’8”

recapa said on 1/Oct/21
ben is a tricky one he has his 6ft8 3/4(203.8) measurement and he usually has an inch on lebron or probably even 3cm i,d say that he is a guy who measures right around 203.7-204.the average guess is excellent.
Canson said on 1/Oct/21
@JAWilder: I would’ve loved to see him play at LSU. And I agree 6’8.25 fits like a hand in a glove for his afternoon measurement
Jawilder said on 30/Sep/21
Saw him play at LSU once.

6’8.25” for Ben.

Lol that means he’s really 6’7.5 if he’s 6’8.5 in the morning 😂 😂

6ft8.5 for simmons
Canson said on 23/Sep/21
Howard is listed 6’9.25 here. That’s probably about fair for him as he does look shorter than 6’9.75 AD and can look similar to Cousins who was likely a morning measurement at 6’9.5. Cousins is 6’9” flat next to AD or Durant
Bagheera said on 22/Sep/21
@ Editor Rob : Please add to Brandon Ingram, Tristan Thompson pages too it can be very interesting what estimates users will give them

and for dwight he measured 6-9.75 and he looks 207 cm, minimum 206.5
Canson said on 21/Sep/21
Bagheera said on 20/Sep/21

dwight 206 clearly
maybe simmons not 206 cm, but 205 look ok

Wasn’t Dwight measured 6’9.75”? Yes he is 206-207 range as he admitted he’s 6’9 and that’s what he looks. But he’s taller than Simmons as Recapa stated. He measured 6’8.25 when drafted

Oh and remember this?

Bagheera said on 20/Sep/21

Davis I say his measurement is unreliable he does not want to be a millimeter above 6-10 if you say the measurements in 2019 are reliable then believe that LeBron 6-8.5 and that Howard exactly at Davis' height (in dreams maybe clearly dwight 206 cm) in 2019 also measured George 6-8 Taytum 6-8 Thompson 6-9 Montrezl 6-7 Kawhai 6-7 Jimmy 6-7 You have to believe in all these measurements too Why do you not believe them and Davis' measurement Yes? Because it's convenient for you, it's help you to think that Davis is only 6-9.75 so LeBron will look Lower than 2.03 but even if it's the exact height of Davis still there is no more than 5 cm then LeBron will be 202.5 cm in his worst case. your determination that LeBron is only 6-7 is a joke, we might argue for 203/202.5/202 but 201 is a disconnect from reality dude
recapa said on 21/Sep/21
@Bagheera, Click Here close to a full inch and i doubt that dwight is above a full 6ft9(205.7) but i,mma gve him the benefit of doubt and give him that height simmons apeear about an inch smaller in the pic but i,ll say that he is a 203-204 guy just like blake griffin.

@Bagheera,lol.he isnt .not even close. he isnt a strong 6ft9 guy like dwight howard.

Here he is with 6’11.75 Joel Embiid. Obviously he isn’t 6’9 range. But I’m waiting for an excuse from Bagheera that Embiid was under measured or that his “hair” is “confusing things”. Simmons was measured in shoes just like LeBron was. He’s 6’8.25 like he was when he was drafted and LeBron is 6’7.25” tops

Pretty sure Simmons has more than an inch on LeBron Click Here
Waterlover968 said on 23/Jun/21
Click Here Simmons is not even close to Embiid's height.

It's like the LeBron/AD fiasco. AD and Embiid are being listed at their true heights, but Simmons and LeBron are shoe measurements, and are listed within one inch of their teammate's, height...I'll give Simmons 6'8.25". LeBron 6'7", AD 6'9.75", and Embiid 7'0" (I have a feeling his measurement was a low + he is really heavy, so I can assume he gets at a low sooner anyways).
Sxpreme said on 22/Jun/21
When I search up his height it says he’s 6’11
Waterlover968 said on 21/Jun/21
He looks very similar to LeBron proportion wise, and has similar size to him on the court. He looks to have around an inch on LeBron, and I would peg Simmons as 6'8"-6'8.25". His 6'9.5" measurement was bogus too. He looks around 4 inches shorter than Embiid, who came in at 6'11.75". Either Embiid was measured at a low with no shoes or Simmons was measured in shoes .. That is the only way those measurements make sense. It is laughable the 76ers list Ben at 6'11" and Embiid at 7'0"...
Canson said on 4/May/21
@Waterlover: yea that just happened this year. Even last year was bad being they blatantly lied like they did with Lebron but prior to 2019, maybe not. A guy who measures 6’8.25 would probably be 6’9” out of bed at least (not sure if Simmons is 6’8.25 or 6’8 afternoon) and if he got 6’9” he could easily be 6’10 in shoes
ChaosControl 6'2.5/189.2cm said on 3/May/21
So Rob thinks this guy would have a full inch on Tyson Fury? Yeah right...
Waterlover968 said on 3/May/21
Simmons is on Kevin Love's tier of height inflation when Love was listed at 6'10"...I thought it was bad Love was inflated over 2 inches in height, but Simmons has been inflated almost a whole 3 inches.
Robbe said on 30/Apr/21
London might be just 6'7.5 range. Ben can't be 6'9 cause he is visible shorter than Dwight Howard. I watched the video you mentioned, end they werent face to face, so it's hard to say how much taller Ben was there. It could be just 0.75in difference, London 6'7.5, and Ben 6'8.25.

@Chaos Control: you’re probably the same as Russell Westbrook and would get a 6’3” listing. He measured 6’2.25 too likely afternoon

How many times do I have to tell you I’m 6’2.5 in the afternoon
Canson said on 13/Mar/21
@Robbe: not to mention Klay isn’t 6’5.75” afternoon height. He was measured closer to 6’5 last season. JJ Redick measured (allegedly) 6’4 at the pre draft and is listed 6’3” now. I don’t trust pre draft measurements and even when accurate they’re a lot of morning measurements some are afternoon thoug before 2009. Keep in mind Hroford was an afternoon measurement though and he’s taller than Simmons at 6’8.75

Click Here
Robbe said on 13/Mar/21
@Duhon, Ben is standing a foot closer to the camera than Klay Thompson. Just look at their feet. Kevin Durant is like a half meter behind Ben. Group photos can be tricky sometimes. That's why Ben appears close to 6'9 there.

Pictures with better angle/distance shows Ben no more than 6'8 range. So he is still slightly overlisted. Horford is about an inch shorter than 6'9.75 Andre Drummond Click Here

Ben is more than just 0.25in shorter than Horford, more like 0.5/0.75in.

He really needs to be listed at 6-8 1/4 Rob
Canson said on 11/Mar/21
6’8.5” is still high. I agree with Rob’s assessment of 6’8-6’8.25”. At least 6’8.25 is something he actually measured and that’s the absolute most he looks. 6’8.75 Al Horford has too much height on him. Even if we said Horford may have grown to 6’9” that’s a good 2cm if not a full inch between them

viper said on 9/Mar/21
I'd downgrade Ben to 6-8 1/4, what he was measured at the combine
Canson said on 9/Mar/21
6’8.5 is still too high. Al Horford is 6’8.75 and edges him clearly. 6’8.25” was his height before he was drafted and that can look questionable at times. However it’s the best case
Editor Rob
I think at least 8.5 could be a possible figure more than near 6ft 9
FriedChicken said on 9/Mar/21
6'8 1/2 is a good start. I would prefer 1/4 but 1/2 is still possible though i wouldn't go over it as he isn't 3 cm above 201.3 cm LeBron.

If he really was this current listing I'd trip out.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Mar/21
Rob, maybe give Ben at 6'8 1/2 which is more apropriate? Between Lebron and Ben isn't over 3cm which is the fact we all see it.
Editor Rob
from all I've seen over the last year, that figure does look very possible...
FriedChicken said on 7/Mar/21
Downgrade perhaps since he's been looking more 6 ft 8 1/4?
Canson said on 7/Mar/21
@Editor Rob: that’s more than likely what he is. He’s shorter than 6’8.75 Al Horford
Robbe said on 7/Mar/21
Ben looking only strong 6'7 with Al here.

Click Here

Looks weak 6'8 here.

Click Here

If i were the siteowner, i would probably list Ben at 6'8. On a good day he can look 6'8.25, but that's the max he could be.
Robbe said on 7/Mar/21
Ben is slightly closer to the camera in Rob's pic. Yet he looks shorter than Horford.

Click Here

I can buy 6'8.25 for Ben, but not 6'8.75. That's more like Horford's height.
Canson said on 28/Feb/21
@Editor Rob: horford is taller even there imho. He’s probably hit at least half inch if not 2cm. Then if you see them on the court he is too
Canson said on 28/Feb/21
@Editor Rob: what about in Robbe’s pic? Simmons looks 6’8 there too
Editor Rob
6ft 8-8.25 at that moment
Robbe said on 28/Feb/21
This is still the best picture to judge Ben's height compared to Joel. Both men standing tall, side by side Click Here

Ben appears bang on 6'8 there. Markkanen 0.5in shorter than Joel. Lol at Ben's current 6'11 listing on 😄
Canson said on 27/Feb/21
@Editor Rob: how much do you think there is between Embiid and Horford? Horford measured 6’8.75 at the pre draft

Simmons at 6’8.75 looks way off. They have him over listed on the roster by 3” if going by afternoon heights
Editor Rob
There was another angle from behind the photographer of another shot click here...those guys might be very close. Embiid did manage to look quite tall with Horford
Canson said on 25/Feb/21
@Editor Rob: at least 3.5” imho. But embiid is an afternoon height more than likely
Canson said on 23/Feb/21
Click Here

@Editor Rob: looks over 3” between Embiid and Simmons. Maybe this fits Simmons for a morning height and his 6’8.25 pre draft Viper saw as well as me, is his afternoon height
Editor Rob
somewhere in 3 inches there looks likely.
Canson said on 12/Feb/21
@Robbe: and now we have it! A 3” inflation lol. He’s 6’8” range. Max 6’8.25

@Junior: just because he has the listing doesn’t mean he’s that tall. JJ Redick was allegedly measured 6’4 and is only 6’3 (if that). He’s listed 6’3 ever since he was measured in 2019. Wade could’ve had it fudged or it could’ve been a rounding. As for Melo I could see his listed height here 6’6.25”. 6’6 is possible but 6’6.25 is as well. I have Wade at 6’3” tops though.

As for Lillard, I’m not sure. I would say his listings are 1” off. He shows 6’1.75 barefoot and 6’2.75 with shoes. Knock one inch off each and that’s where he was. So yea 6’0.75 but that’s morning imho. 6’0.25 is my guess. Colin Cowherd says he looked 6’0”. He looks maybe a strong 6’0” to weak 6’2 absolute best case

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jan/21
Wade was record at 6'3 3/4 w/o shoes while Rob list him down at 6'3 1/4 now since he admit he was only that tall, which i doubt he isn't below 6'3 when see him standing straight with well known height teammates. Possible was the different timing of measurement and time of waking up affect their morning measurement and their lowest bonus with some players Busting a Gut or hiding 1/4-1/2" orthotics in socks helps. Carmelo i doubt 6'5 3/4 that low too but the more i look at him i wouldn't go with over 6'6 lowest and Lebron i still stick with 6'6 7/8-6'7 at worst. But meaning is those players who wake up near an hour get measure may had the bad chance to be between 1/2-3/4 inch down at their low and players measure after them were more average to be 3/8" down a low and lucky ones wake up two hour just 1/4" down, also detail about a small fraction height more or less of error measurement would affect the perception of how we sees players real height given a lesser chance small amount of players atually grew 1/8-1/4" taller not talking about 1/2 to 1" those were amazing growth at early 20s.. Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis and Giannis were three small example consider very lucky to grow 3/4-1" taller. Damian Lillard who had the magic tricks of 6'1 3/4 w/o shoes were more like someone who will hide 1cm orthotics in their socks with fraction more bonus Busting a Gut to reach 187.3cm lol. Damian lowest i still given him close to 6'0 3/4 despite he looks it with 6'3 1/2 Conan O'brien.
Chrisco said on 2/Jan/21
Hey Rob, check out this photo with Lebron and Anthony Davis. He’s practically the same height as Lebron, I’d saw 1/4 taller but be generous and give him 1/2 on Lebron. I reckon he should be listed 6’7 and 3/4, or absolute max 6’8”. Check this photo Click Here
Editor Rob
you could argue at most 3cm there, Davis with the camera advantage is gaining a few cm too.
Canson said on 2/Jan/21
@Duhon: it’s been a mixed bag. John Wall sat out last year and he’s listed 6’3 now and Melo 6’7”. But Some guys are listed at their old heights and others kept their listings. Then you get Simmons who has grown an extra inch. He’s listed 6’11 on IMHO he’s 6’8 range next to Embiid or Horford who was measured 6’8.75 at the combine. In 2007 that looks consistent with others being afternoon measurements as I don’t see him under. I see 6’9.25 that he got last season as an early morning. I’ve seen some guys that were .25 over get rounded up such as Chris Paul. Simmons looks his supposed draft measurement 6’8.25 (best case) with Horford or Embiid who I feel is an afternoon measurement. The latter looks 7’ most of the time
Duhon said on 31/Dec/20
The individual teams are messing with the heights again. I believe it was the NBA a year or so ago who wanted players listed by barefoot or close which is why quite a few players did have their listed heights dropped. Now this past season you had a bunch of individual teams say some of their players magically grew in their early 20s or beyond which is why they got bumped up again and I guess the NBA feels it's not worth to fight it.

I think Ben is around the ~6'9" range and his team wanted to re-list him in his rounded up shoe height.
Canson said on 30/Dec/20
@Junior: in 2003 I’m not sure what time of day. 6’2.75 is a worst case for Wade but I don’t rule out 6’3”. Carmelo I highly doubt is only 6’5.75”. If anything I’d give him his listing here before that. Melo’s looks close to a low. Maybe he’s within 1-2 mm. LeBron although I use to consider 200 cm I think 6’7 flat is decent for him. Simmons I could still buy 6’8” maybe max 6’8.25 but no higher. He’s listed 6’11 now on He’s closer to 6’8 than 6’9” if going by afternoon height but a 6’9” listing is a good look right now in the NBA for him because guys like Carmelo are listed 6’7” now. But you said 6’8 isn’t likely. It looks like it is next to Al Horford unless he grew too. Horford was 6’8.75 at the combine in 2007 which was more than likely an afternoon. 6’9.25 a morning height. As for your measurements that’s how mine come out. 195.7 out of bed (6’5.05), 194.7 after an hour (6’4.65), then 193.7/.8 (6’4.25-.3) afternoon height. So if I got a combine measurement if it’s under 1 hour or a few min over, I would likely get 6’4.75 listing or if NFL combine maybe 6’4 5/8 if it’s minutes over but if I did in the afternoon I’d get 6’4.25 or 6’4.5 (if I measure 193.8). The latter is another variable being you get some guys who measure slightly over a mark in the NBA and are rounded to the next 1/4. So you may get a guy who is say 6’4.53 an hour out of bed and get 6’4.75” on occasion and be as low as 6’4 or a tiny fraction over at their afternoon height.
Robbe said on 29/Dec/20
Ben confirmed to be just under 7ft.

So Ben needs a major upgrade!
KH said on 28/Dec/20
To defend Simmons it was NBA policy to use shoe heights for years. And this is the minimum Simmons is imo. Im not sure Dwight Howard is taller they are teammates now hard to tell really who is taller after watching a few games Im a Sixers fan. I mean really Howard might be about an 1/4-1/2 inch taller topsthats not really noticeable with the naked eye even unless you could really eye them both up. Also, I've never seen Simmons listed at 6'11. 6'10 yes a shoe height. Simmons is tall with a big frame I dont know how you can look at him and go nuts because is often listed at 6'10. And Simmons is clearly taller then James.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Dec/20
Lebron 6'7 1/4 was during NBA drafted measurement between 7-8am which he literally could be close to 1cm lower depends on how many hours of sleep and also indicate on others estimate of 1/2" lower for every players who were measure in NBA In-camp training less than one hour or half hour out of bed. Although i couldn't see Lebron below 6'7 even means that it would make Ben 6'8 a low which is a little too high listed him at 6'8 3/4 rather than a better listing should go down at 6'8 1/4, but to the extend of worst that Lebron could be only 6'6 3/4 at night barefoot without socks that need to rule out this small possibilities , so Ben could be as worst of worst like 6'7 3/4 at night. Dwyane Wade would be what Canson estimate his worst possible low at 6'2 3/4 since Lebron had Wade by 4". Sometimes those basketball shoes in the NBA game were tricky and seem boosted the players height easily over an inch (3-3.5cm if we consider orthotic was added on some players feet) which is why i start to see 6'7 claim Stephen Merchant over 6'7 because of Lebron but then i use to think Merchant was only 6'6 3/4, if we estimate most celebrities appearance with bigger footwear advantage then Lebron ofcos edge out Merchant a little bit but in reality taking off their shoes compare a back to back they might just be leveled at worst low 6'6 3/4-6'7 which we wouldn't know that. From my recent "NBA Draft measurement" experience of my own in the morning at 8.15am that i have already wake up close to an hour doing a measurement which i drop down from 6'6.6"(199.6) out of bed to 6'6.2"(198.6) and my usual low 197.3cm before bed at night indicate i lost 1/2" and i have slept 7 hours that day which i does this twice between three days while that is no difference, so what people have argue almost all NBA players drop 1/2" from their morning drafted height is literally true but some small amount of players does grow a litte bit taller after drafted between a few years gaining between 1/8-1/2 was reliable. What if Wade, Lebron and Carmelo those players have never gain the lucky small amount of height then they would be individually have a nightmarish-lowest at 6'2.75", 6'6.75" and 6'5.75" worst low for them while the chance is 50/50 to be argued.

he might not be
Wingspanpro said on 24/Dec/20
I think former players like charlie villanueva, larry sanders , John hendson or active bobby porters(was 6'11 until last Saison), cole aldrich are not much better.
"7ft" Dewayne Dedmom , mikko moore or nikola vucevic(was 7ft until last Saison)are same case too.

Lauri markkanen is about 6'10.75 when you see him with lopez

He listens 6'11 now on nba site
Robbe said on 9/Dec/20
Ben appears slightly taller than Kevin Durant, and the same height as Anthony Davis in this group photo Click Here

But Ben is closer to the camera there. Like said many times, group photos aren't the best pictures to judge heights due to they never ever stand in a straight line. One player can stand a half meter behind another, and so on.

But anyway, looks like siteowner is not willing to agree to the general consensus here..
Canson said on 8/Dec/20
@Junio: I’d give Blake no higher than 6’8 if he measured that early morning. Ben could look max 6’8.25 but really his afternoon looks 6’8 too
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Dec/20
Blake Griffin had Lebron by a decent 1" but listed 6'8 1/2 and Ben Simmons also look 1" on Lebron. Blake and Ben is likely within 1/8 not even a full 1/4. I did rule out Blake 6'8, Ben 6'8 1/8 and Lebron 6'7 in their low.
FriedChicken said on 15/Nov/20
I agree with that. Seems the general consensus is at most 6'8.25
Canson said on 13/Nov/20
He needs a downgrade to at least 6’8.25 being that’s what he measured (allegedly) and being he looks at best 1” taller than Lebron
Canson said on 13/Nov/20
@Robbe: yea I knew here even with the downgrade that he’s way over listed. 6’8 is fair
Robbe said on 12/Nov/20
I wouldn't go higher than 6'8 for Ben. Remember what Shaun Lane said when he met Ben ftf.

“I was expecting him to tower over me,” Lane grinned. “I’m only 6’6’’ but I rocked up and he was only a little bit taller than me.”

We have all seen the pic so no need to post it again.
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
@Recapa: agreed! I wonder about Simmons because he had the combine (according to Viper) of 6’8.25 which means he could be as low as 6’7.75”. However he may have grown a fraction or maybe it was a measurement he got in college. I would say 203 is the lowest I’d go but with Embiid yea your estimate looks pretty good 6’8.25”
recapa said on 10/Nov/20
@Junior nick simmons can look as high as 6ft7 flat while ben is not lower than 6ft8 as you said. @Canson also agreed with your estimates about tatum and ingram both are solid 6ft7 guys and similar to libron while kuzma doesnt fall under 202cm at low so he is similar to kristopher london .tatum,kuzma,lebron(200.7cm),kuzma (202cm),ben simmons (204cm)
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Nov/20
Nothing to compare them. Nick Simmons is at most 6'6 1/2. Ben is no lower than 6'8.

Kuzma, Ingram, Tatum, and Simmons may very well be within an inch. Between 6'7/6'8.
Canson said on 26/Oct/20
@Junior: I definitely see more than 1/4” between Horford and Simmons. Horford’s 6’8.75 is believable for his afternoon height while 6’9.25 that he measured this season seems more like a morning height. The combine would likely measure around 630 or 7 am like we saw for Blake Griffin. Horford was measured in 2008 and likely an afternoon as he looks that height still. Overall, I agree with Viper. I’d list Simmons at 6’8.25”. That could’ve been in the morning but it looks a lot closer to reality than what he’s listed now. To me he does look a very legit 6’8” still. Since Lebron is listed 6’7.25, that’s a good fit for him. And they “measured” (shoes) 1” apart this year at 6’8.5 and 6’9.5”
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 26/Oct/20
I mean a later time of the morning after 9-10am unlikely draft measurement 7-8cm for Ben. 6'8 worst low def solid 1" on Lebron. Between Simmons and Horford is hard to tell sometimes they look as close as 1/4 and then also 3/4" apart it's more on the 1/2 inch side if place out measurement, Horford can't be more than 6'8 3/4 a low so probably 6'8 1/2.
viper said on 25/Oct/20
If I was running this site Id have him listed as 6-8.25 here, his unofficial measurement
Canson said on 24/Oct/20
@Junior: I agree on the 6’8.25 morning but that would mean he’d dip 1/2” lower. Maybe 6’8.5 morning down to 6’8 if he still maintains it. I know if I measured at a combine around that time (1 hour out of bed) I’d get 6’4 5/8 or a hair over so they may call it 6’4.75 if it’s the NBA and 6’4.25 or a hair over in the afternoon
Canson said on 23/Oct/20
@Junior: how much do you see between Simmons and Horford? I can see up to an inch. 6’7.75” is possible if that’s the case but I’d go with 6’8” purely based off the inch he has on Lebron
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Oct/20
@Canson Check out the link we can see drafted year 6'7 Brandon Ingram and Ben Simmons look strong 1" (3cm) apart Click Here Ben morning measurement shouldn't be less than 6'8 1/4 at worst. 6'7.75" lowest for Ben seem too low, more on 6'8 flat.
Canson said on 20/Oct/20
@Junior: I can buy Horford’s 6’8.75 being his afternoon low. Simmons looks about 1/2”-1” shorter. 6’8” 1/8 is a decent estimate. It says 6’8.25 for his pre draft too like Viper said. Meaning he could’ve been as low as 6’7.75”. I have him solid 6’8 though or even what you said. Tobias Harris is 6’6”.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Oct/20
Click Here Lebron look to be 3-3.5cm lower than Ben Simmons. Al Horford is probably close to 6'8 1/2 a low. I believe at worst low 6'8 1/8 for Ben. Maybe 6'8 3/4 was a little bit of Busting a Gut 7-8am measurement.
recapa said on 19/Oct/20
203-204cm for ben simmons .the 6.10.25 is defintely an early day shoe measurement.he had arond 5,5 inches on adam silver in the mock draft pick

@Viper: right. At minimum it’s 2cm. That puts Simmons max 6’8” and Horford 6’8.75 that he measured when drafted which is his afternoon measurement. Proof again that they’re early morning since he got 6’9.25”

Near an inch

Here’s a full article about Simmons meeting 6’6” Shaun Lane, as posted by Canson below

Click Here

Lane is obviously very height aware and says he is “only” 6’6” and that Simmons was only slightly taller than him. From the article and photo, if you didn’t know any better you’d think Simmons was only 6’7” range

I know he isn’t that short but it certainly supports him being shorter than he is listed here. I must say that Lane looks exceptionally tall next to his teammates in photos, so maybe he understates his own height.
Canson said on 12/Aug/20
viper said on 10/Aug/20
A lot of these guys measure 2 inches more than their barefoot height

This season has been hit or miss. Bradley Beal is now listed at 6’3” when he measured 6’3.25 as a pre draft participant. Also Brandon Ingram measured 6’7” this year. But then you have guys like Lebron Ben Simmons Tobias Harris Harden Chris Paul who all received shoe measurements

I don't think he shrinks the full inch. Just my opinion.

I think he's 6-8.25 midday at least
Canson said on 10/Aug/20
Canson said on 9/Aug/20
@Viper: you think the 6’8.25 is a morning height? I don’t. My guess is 6’9.25 out of bed perhaps and maybe 6’8.75ish to 6’9 at combine time. He would lose an inch easily to get to 6’8.25. He also measured 6’9” at LSU which was like rounded up to that mark and that was likely a morning measurement. I don’t see him under 6’8” afternoon. My guess is at the combine he would be 6’8.75 or 6’9”. He skipped the combine. But He has at least an inch of not more on Lebron.

@Editor Rob: it says in the last article that he measured 6’9.5 in shoes. The shoe height is likely what they used this season so he’s 6’8.25 maybe 6’8.5 would fly. But the former is more likely. He’s not 6’9.5 or 6’8.75”. Simmons has not grown since he was drafted

Editor Rob
The 6ft 9.5 in shoes was from the 2015 Nike and the 6ft 10.25 shoes from a later event, it's interesting about the 10.25 though, that seems a high value in sneakers.

@Editor Rob: I didn’t see any mention to 6’10.25 in sneaks but I saw 6’10” flat. I saw also a 6’9” measurement barefoot. But 6’10.25 in basketball shoes would make since if he measured 6’9”. My guess is the 6’9” was a morning measurement and rounded slightly. I could see what you list him at here or maybe a slight hair over and that rounded up to 6’9”. Then afternoon 6’8.25” would be a max afternoon if not 6’8”. The latter really. He looks too short next to 6’8.75” Al Horford to be any taller. Maybe a fair listing here would be 6’8.5”?
Editor Rob
It was in the Tweet from that Chad Ford.

Here is Simmons with a 6’6” measured Rugby player. He’s not 3” taller that looks less than 2” but I’ll say 2” simply because the angle is odd. Viper is right. Simmons is around 6’8.25. I’ll give him 6’8-6’8.5 range. 8.5 is the max he is
Canson said on 5/Aug/20
@Ellis and Editor Rob: I feel that his measurement was a shoe measurement. If you look at Tobias Harris, he received a 6’6.5” measurement when drafted and a 6’7.5” this past year. Likely that both Simmons and Harris received a shoe measurement just like Lebron did. It wouldn’t surprise me if Harris is just a solid 6’6” guy although I don’t rule out 6’6.5 but that could be a morning measurement too. Horford looks 6’8.75 and always has
Editor Rob
Would have been interesting if any measurements were actually recorded on camera.

@Ellis: Horford has more than 1/4” on Simmons. If Horford is 6’8.75 like he got at the combine Simmons is 6’8” based on that picture. 6’8.75 that Rob has him is too high still but better than it was. It’s a legit morning measurement imho
Canson said on 4/Aug/20
I see Rob dropped him to 6’8.75 now. That’s a start. He would measure this at the combine in the morning and 6’8.25 afternoon more than likely

@Ellis: 6’8.25 is not too low for him. He’s about an inch or so taller than Lebron
Canson said on 3/Aug/20

Well knocking a 1/4 off is closer, how far under 6ft 9 he might truly measure is still debatable.
Ellis said on 3/Aug/20
@Canson: Yeah he definitely isn't 6'9 at a low, my eyes have been opened to that, but 6'8-6'8.5 seems a bit low. 6'8.5 is possible, and you are correct in saying that Horford's 6'9.25 is more than likely a morning measurement. Simmons is probably 6'8.5 at a low.
@Viper: 6'8.25 is a bit low, but still a possibility.
@Canson: What do you think Ben Simmons out of bed height is? I would have to guess 6'9.5.

Canson said on 2/Aug/20
@Viper: I believe it too. And that looks afternoonish
viper said on 1/Aug/20
I believe the "unofficial" 6-8.25 measurement for him
Canson said on 1/Aug/20
@Ellis: maybe 6’8-6’8.5 range tops
Canson said on 1/Aug/20
@Ellis: Horford is more than likely a morning measurement. He measured 6’9.25 this year and 6’8.75 when he was drafted which I believe is his afternoon. As for Simmons, 6’8”
Monkey knees said on 29/Jul/20
Simmons - 6ft 8.5in no shoes
Embiid - 6ft 11.33in no shoes

There - 100% correct.
Ellis said on 18/May/20
@Robbe: I had their difference at 3 inches. Joel Embiid is 6'11.75 at a low, and Ben Simmons is a bit under 6'9 at a low, perhaps 6'8.75, maybe 6'8.5. I'm assuming Rob has his afternoon height listed here, which is not his low. I will admit though, in those pictures, the difference is clearly above 3 inches, which makes me question Ben Simmons 6'9. Embiid's head must be larger than average, so the difference has to be at least 3.5 inches. Pictures can be deceiving at times, but Simmons is around half an inch shorter than 6'9.25 Al Horford, so I'm assuming Ben Simmons is 6'8.75 at a low.

@Rob: When do you reckon he got the 6'9.5(Simmons)? I believe that the measurement is accurate, but how early is the question. I would say within the first hour of waking.
Robbe said on 29/Mar/20
Joel is not tilting his head up here, yet Ben reaches only at Joel's eyebrows. That's more like 3.75in difference.

Click Here

That's exactly the same difference as in this pic i posted earlier.

There can't be better picture, both men satanding tall with perfect angle. Joel is minimum 3'5in taller than Ben. Could be 3.75in.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Mar/20
Joel Embiid tilt up head to gain 3/4 inch from perception. There isn't over 2.75" between them you can found on many google image.
Robbe said on 16/Mar/20
Newest photo of Ben and Joel. I can see a solid 3.5in difference.

Ben is no more than 6'8.25. Time for downgrade, Big Rob.
Jean214 said on 15/Mar/20
6'8.75 at least

Jean214 said on 14/Mar/20
6'8.5 with 6'11.75 Joël embiid and 6'7.25 LeBron James
Canson said on 14/Mar/20
@Viper: if he was only 6’8.25 at the combine, he would prob be 6’7.75” afternoon unless he grew since. 6’8.25 looks more like his actual height. Was his combine measurement actual or was he one of those guys like Kobe who has one listed and didn’t attend?
viper said on 5/Mar/20
He needs to be downgraded to 6-8

He measured 6-9.5 IN SHOES at Nike Academy. Click Here

He measured 6-8.25 at the combine
Canson said on 28/Feb/20
@Robbe: looks like we were thinking the same thing as our posts came out simultaneously. Didn’t realize you were posting it too. But I agree.

@Editor Rob: I don’t believe he measured that figure barefoot. Or he was right at 6’9 and given the boost. Viper is spot on with this one. His combine listing of 6’8.25 is more than fair especially being that was early in the day (post 2008). Maybe he gained to that in the afternoon but Remember that Lebron measured the half inch over 6’8” when he’s likely 6’8” out of bed. If they measure around an hour after waking I doubt Lebron would be 6’8”. Probably 6’7.75 at best. Really if we consider Al Horford looks his pre draft (from 2007 which was likely an afternoon height like Kevin Durant’s) hes taller at 6’8.75 than Simmons. How much taller remains to be seen due to angles but I think it’s safe to say that Simmons is minimum half inch shorter and he can look max 1” taller than Lebron the more I see. That really may just be 2cm. Also depends on how tall we have Lebron 6’7 or 6’7.25
Canson said on 27/Feb/20
@Robbe: I’ve seen several pictures with Al Horford and Simmons and Horford looks taller in all of them. Not just this one. Horford was 6’9.25 this year likely an earlier measurement during the day as he was 6’8.75 when he was drafted which is more likely his afternoon

Click Here
Editor Rob
It is hard to imagine Ben measuring over 6ft 9, maybe it was an early day figure.
Robbe said on 27/Feb/20
Yeah, Ben is also visible shorter than 6'9.25 listed Al Horford.

Click Here

Ben is most likely closer to 6'8, than 6'9.
viper said on 26/Feb/20
Ben and LeBron measured in shoes.

So obvious
viper said on 26/Feb/20
He should be listed what he measured at the combine

Canson said on 25/Feb/20
@Robbe: he’s surely over listed it Embiid is 6’11.75
Robbe said on 24/Feb/20
Ben looking surprisingly short here with Embiid, Markkanen, and Sabonis. What is that, 3.5 -4in?

Click Here

@Big Rob, maybe you should downgrade Ben at least to 6'8.5? I don't trust these newest measurements, they don't seem to be accurate.
Canson said on 16/Feb/20
@Robbe: I saw pics of him with Jimmy Butler last season and that’s the only thing that had me believing there may be a chance at 6’9” but then I saw pics of Butler with Kawhi Leonard or Bam Adebayo and he doesn’t look much over 6’5”. I wonder if Adam Silver actually cared about the validity of the measurements or if he just went with the program knowing some would comply and others wouldn’t
Robbe said on 16/Feb/20
Ben does look 6'8 range with 6'3 Adam Silver.

Click Here

Mo Bamba looks easily 3in taller than Ben there. Adam is on Ben's eyelevel, and just below Mo's mouth level. Easy 3in difference.
Canson said on 15/Feb/20
@Viper: well he did claim to be 7’2 in sandals. But a couple people here (inflators) said he was 7’2 barefoot because the Sixers listed him at that yet the NBA kept him 7’0 the whole time. He could just be 6’11.25 maybe being a 6’11.75 could be a morning height. However I don’t rule out the growth and that being a low for him with 6’11 flat extreme low. Simmons is the one who is really overlisted. I remember the Sixers insiders claiming both men grew and Brett Brown shooting them down that Simmons did not grow. He’s likely 6’8” range
Jean214 said on 14/Feb/20
Easy 205cm 6'8.8 (205,2)
viper said on 13/Feb/20
Embiid isn't looking any taller than
6-11 in these last few photos

Amazing how some thought he was 7-2
Canson said on 11/Feb/20
Here is a better picture of Simmons and Embiid. I can see an argument for 6’8.75 but not 6’9.25 based on how he looks with Lebron and with Embiid. Really 6’8.5 is the max. And I don’t rule out 6’9.5 only being a basketball shoe height meaning 6’8.25 like when drafted.

Click Here
Canson said on 11/Feb/20
@Robbe: in most pics it’s a minimum of 3” between them. Simmons only has about an inch or inch and a half on Lebron and only has 6’6” Tobias Harris by maybe 2-2.5”. Harris measured 6’6.5 (early morning) at the pre draft and still is around that basing him next to others. Maybe 6’6.5 but not higher. They did the same to Harris that they did to Jordan clarkson Deangelo Russell Jimmy Butler and a host of other players. They knocked 1” off their previous NBA listings to make a fake barefoot measurement. Butler was a morning 6’6 and looking at him with Kawhi isn’t as tall as he is.

Robbe said on 9/Feb/20
Ben is no moore than 2.25in shorter than Joel Embiid. Here is perhaps the best pic of them together Click Here

That's bang on 2.25in. So Ben's current listing is close enough. He is not under 6'9.
Canson said on 7/Feb/20
@viper: he edges lebron though. But then again you have Tobias Harris at 6’6 who’s listed 6’7.5. Harris was 6’6.5 pre draft in the morning. Simmons looks 6’8 or 6’8.25 no higher. Simmons is not 2” taller than lebron but maybe 1” or 3cm. Lebron is prob 6’7 flat

viper said on 7/Feb/20
I can buy 6-8.25 morning because he looked a good 2 inches shorter than 6-10 Giannis the other night
Canson said on 5/Feb/20
6’8.25 looks too low for a morning measurement
Canson said on 5/Feb/20
@Big Tyre: I think 205.5-206 out of bed and 203-204 afternoon. No less than 203. He probably loses an inch but he’s likely still 6’8”.
Big Tyr said on 5/Feb/20
Ben simmons 204 cm morning and 202 cm later or at his lowest. Probably wakes up 204.5 cm. That would explain way he looked 202 cm in the picture. Because he was.
Canson said on 4/Feb/20
@Viper: he also has a 6’9” measurement.

Click Here
Canson said on 4/Feb/20
Simmons isn’t as low as 6’7.5 I doubt. But he’s prob 6’8” range
Big Tyr said on 4/Feb/20
Ben could be 6'8.25 morning and 6'7.5 later or 204 cm then 202 cm. That would explain why he looked 202 cm there.
Big Tyr said on 3/Feb/20
@kurtinho Simmons does look maybe 6'7.5 at most in that picture. And since Embiid is only 2.25 taller than Ben simmons according to Philadelphia themselves! That would explain why Embiid looks 6'9.75. Which would make him 6'11 in shoes. You may be up to something.
Canson said on 2/Feb/20
201-202 look too low for Simmons but 6’8.25 like he was when drafted looks right. He and Lebron were both likely measured in sneakers and got 6’8.5 and 6’9.5. Both guys are 6’7 and 6’8”
Robbe said on 2/Feb/20
Pictures can lie. Ben is 6'9.5. Here is 76ers measured barefoot heights. Joel Embiid is 2'0.25in taller than Ben Click Here
Kurtinho said on 1/Feb/20
Look at this photo of simmons with 198cm listed australian Rugby League player Shaun Lane. You can investigate Lane, I am certain he is around that 198cm listing. The photo shows very minimal difference in height, if they were both bare foot I would say simmons is 199cm if Lane is 198cm, the problem is that the shoes are not visible but I for one have very serious doubts that simmons could be 8cm taller than Lane based off of this image. Next to lebron as well Id say that simmons might be about 201-202cm and that lane had thicker shoes on in this pic.

Canson said on 29/Jan/20
Measured 6’8.25 at the combine and got 6’9.5 just like Lebron measured 6’7.25 and got 6’8.5

Canson said on 26/Jan/20

1.5” max. If Lebron is listed 6’7.25 he shouldn’t be any higher than 6’8.75. Really is 6’8.5 barefoot if using afternoon heights. Embiid is clearly a good 3” taller than him
Canson said on 26/Jan/20
He’s overlisted. He is not 2” taller than Lebron

Click Here

Afternoon heights:

Simmons 6’8.5”
Lebron 6’7”
Canson said on 21/Nov/19
@Junior: he may be less than 6’8.75”. Embiid towers over him. But What you said makes sense too. I’ll say that but for a taller guy like him, he may lose a full inch in a day. So if the 6’9.5 was accurate an hour after waking, 6’8.75 is reasonable. If I got a listing here based on 5 hours it should be 6’4 3/8” but Rob May go with afternoon height or with a round up to 6’4.5”. Do notice that some of these measurements are blatantly wrong. Kemba Walker admitted he’s 5’11” and he is listed 6’0”
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Nov/19
@Canson Simmons isn't below 6'8 3/4. I admit that Rob listed him 1/2" too high but usually Rob listed 1/4 higher for a five hours out of bed height standard from celebrities he met in real. Lebron might be weak 2" shorter than Simmons not a full 2".
Canson said on 14/Nov/19
@Junior: one thing we can probably agree on is that Wade’s combine was off. JJ redick’s combine shows he measured 6’4 and 6’4.75 in shoes. Redick is listed at 6’3” under the new rules. Wade does not look anywhere near 6’4” with Simmons. I honesty stand by my 6’2.75 estimate before. He is slouching but Simmons would be near 6” taller if they stood at shoulder length right next to each other and straight up
Canson said on 14/Nov/19
@Junior: Wade isn’t standing straight. As for the difference between Lebron and Simmons I can’t find a good pic. I doubt it’s 1.75”. Max 1.5. If Lebron is 6’7”, I don’t see how 6’8.5 is out of the question for Simmons. Viper is right he did measure 6’8.25 before but he may have grown. Fact is even if the 6’9.5 he got in training camp is accurate he’s max 6’9” flat afternoon height. That’s if. I honestly can buy 6’8.5 next to Embiid
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Nov/19
@Canson Lebron is at least 1.75" shorter than Simmons. Click Here Check out here we can see full body of legit 6'3 Wade look close to 7" shorter than Simmons. I know Dwyane Wade dropping some height and Ben Simmons standing straight. How can he be 6'8-6'8 1/2 to make 6'2 1/2 posture Wade to look that short. No way. 6'9 or 1/4 below is the lowest he could be.
viper said on 12/Nov/19
His 6-8.25 measurement was correct
viper said on 12/Nov/19
He's 6-8 and the 6-9.5 was in shoes
Canson said on 12/Nov/19
@Junior: I don’t know about that. Simmons looks 6’8” range more often than not. Lebron also got 6’8.5”. He may just be 6’8.25 or 6’8.5 himself and got 6’9.5
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Nov/19
@Canson @NM Fraction taller is funny it's an inch there.. Please think about some tipping toes issues if Shaun Lane is only measure 6'6 means could be 6'5 3/4 a low so there is no way he could make Ben Simmons look 6'6 3/4 in a upper body picture shown. Do not trust picture like this. Ben Simmons is close to 6'9 a low so if Shaun had a tip toes it's easily a bit over 2" taller to make it 6'8 next to 6'9 Simmons.
Canson said on 27/Oct/19
@NM: he’s taller than the rugby player but maybe 6’8 is his real height. That was fishy to make him 6’10 (6’9.5). He’s not anything close to Joel Embiid
NM said on 27/Oct/19
Here is Simmons with 6’6 measured rugby league player Shaun Lane Click Here

He isn’t much taller? He only looks a fraction taller
Brandon I said on 26/Oct/19
@joe even if Mo Bamba was just a flat 6'11 at that time, Porter could be no less than 6'9.75 in that pic. I believe he's still growing. I think one day he will be a legit 6'10
viper said on 24/Oct/19
Bol Bol is 7-0.5
Canson said on 24/Oct/19
@Brandon: I think Porter would edge Simmons. Simmons May hve gotten what Lebron did. A 6’8 range guy listed 6’9”

Brandon I said on 23/Oct/19
@Canson, here is a pic with Porter standing next to 7'1 Mo Bamba and 7'2 Bol Bol. How would you say he'd do next to Ben Simmons? Is he more legit 6'10 than simmons?

@Brandon: Porter
Brandon I said on 23/Oct/19
@Rob how tall would you say 6 foot 10 listed Michael Porter Jr would be against Ben Simmons. Both measured 6'9.5 but I think Michael Porter Jr would edge him out.
Editor Rob
I've not quite seen much of Porter
Canson said on 21/Oct/19
@Junior: I wonder about Embiid now. Is it possible he may be under listed? Maybe 6’11.75 was his low which I could believe really. 6’11” flat or 6’11.25-.5 seems low imho
Canson said on 21/Oct/19
No more than 6’8.75 and that seems high
NE Asian vs Nordic said on 19/Oct/19
6'10 or 208 cm as tall as me lol

No way he's the same height as Durant.

He's 6-8
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Oct/19
Nice downgrade. 6'8.75"-6'9 is still a low for Ben.
Mad Dog said on 19/Oct/19
Rob I still can’t see how he is 6’9 1/2. Check this pic with embiid and Saric. He looks about 4 inches shorter than Embiid and 2 inches shorter than Saric who is also listed as 6’10” Click Here
Editor Rob
9.5 could well be early in the day, I can see how 6ft 9 seems more believable.
viper said on 18/Oct/19
I'm sticking with 6-8.25 for him.
