Ben does look 6'8 range with 6'3 Adam Silver.

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.

@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

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.

@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.

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.

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.

Measured 6’8.25 at the combine and got 6’9.5 just like Lebron measured 6’7.25 and got 6’8.5

Click Here
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”
joe### said on 24/Oct/19
Bol bol measured 7'0.75 and mo bamba 6'11.25.
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?

Canson said on 23/Oct/19
@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
viper said on 19/Oct/19
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.

NBA can't be trusted

@Junior: I’ve never seen a good pic with Simmons and Lebron. Maybe 6’8.75 tho for Simmons
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Oct/19
@viper If you believe the 6'8.25" for Ben than Lebron is nothing over 6'6.5" and Carmelo is probably 6'5.5".
viper said on 15/Oct/19
This could have been a shoe height like Stephen Curry.

Simmons has not grown since his 6-8.25 measurement his rookie year.
K.A 188 ! said on 15/Oct/19
Even though he is very tal he has never giving me the super lanky impression that 6ft9 guys like Kevin Durant or John Isner give.
Who knows this could be a shoe measurement I have him at 204 cm personally.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Oct/19
Click Here Lebron was atually standing further behind to look near 2.25" lower than Ben. Closer to the truth it's 1.75" between them.
Canson said on 14/Oct/19
@Joe: yea Lebron is slouching in the first pic. I still wonder if they didn’t give him that 6’9.5 just to keep him 6’10” on paper. I say that because the more I see with Embiid the more I believe it’s closer to 3” between them
Canson said on 14/Oct/19
I have Simmons 6’8.75 perhaps
Canson said on 14/Oct/19
@Junior: yea but Butler looks shorter than Kawhi. IMHO Kawhi looks your height. His was probably a true 1 hour out of bed at 6’6” and Butler was embellished.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Oct/19
Feel that Ben Simmons is only this listing usual out of bed. 6'8 3/4 same as Dwight Howard lowest.
viper said on 14/Oct/19
If these measurements arnt set in stone, it wouldn't shock me If this was a shoe height and that his 6-8.25 measurement is his true height.

I've always thought he looked too short to be 6-9

in this pic he is in front of lebron winning by 2 cm advantage.
Ellis said on 12/Oct/19
This guy is really difficult, in my opinion he is really not that much shorter than Embiid. One can argue a 2.5 inch difference, but not much more after that. This guy is 6'9.25, Probably wakes up almost six ten, and at a low is 6'9. Pretty sure you lose like 50% of your height in the first hour. This guy is anywhere from 6'9-6'9.5, but I would say closer to 6'9 than 6'9.5, because I reckon KD is barely taller than him, never seen a picture though. 6'9.25.
joe### said on 12/Oct/19
i have ben simmons in 6'9 flat.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Oct/19
At most Ben is solid 6'9 not the extra 1/2.

@Canson Could consider Butler can look that, but sometimes doesn't look below 197cm. Ben i would give 6'9 a low from Lebron being 6'7.
Canson said on 11/Oct/19
@Rob: why didn’t you knock the 1/4” off like for the others.

@Junior: I think Butler is 196 and he’s 205.

A 1/4 knock off isn't unreasonable to consider

Mad Dog said on 11/Oct/19
I don’t see how Ben could possibly be 2 and 1/4 inches taller than Lebron from looking at this pic. He looks at most 3/4 inch taller than Lebron. Neither seem to be slouching and no advantage with the angle or anything. Click Here
Editor Rob
There was another shot I seen Here which could be closer to 2 inches
viper said on 11/Oct/19
IMO measured 6-9 3/8 rounded up
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Oct/19
206cm is the best he look with 197cm Butler.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Oct/19
7 foot fraud. Lol. He maybe deal with a lowest measurement not more than 6'9. Dirk to me is more 6'10 1/2 and camera advantage making Dirk look over 2" taller.

he never looks 6'9.5, look with mike scott measured 6'7.25

6ft 9.5 as a 9-10am measurement isn't too hard to believe, so maybe he falls short of that later.

He only looks 6-8 with Dirk

Lol, how did people think Simmons was

He's a short looking 6-9 guy.

I thought he was 6-8

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Oct/19
. Just saw Ben Simmons listing here it shocked me with that 1/2 over 6'9. I always thought he look max 2" over 6'7 Lebron and 3.5" on 6'5 1/2 Jimmy Butler. Need to check on him more.
viper said on 7/Oct/19
Could have been a 6-9 3/8 measurement rounded up to 6-9.5

Still surprising. He supposedly measured 6-8.25 before
Vick HJ said on 6/Oct/19
Are you gonna start adding more official heights for more NBA players now that the actual NBA has started to crack down on players real height? Some people went down a whole 3 inches than their listed height.
Editor Rob
I'm not sure who has changed 2 let alone 3 inches, that is a huge change. The one thing with measurements is the time of day might vary, and I suppose some players who are very tall have a bigger variation.

a 6ft 9 or 10 guy might have a much bigger variation in morning to evening height like 3-4cm.
Onabill said on 6/Oct/19
Can’t believe there is only 2 1/4 inch differences between Him and Embiid, Embiid legit towers over him, I always thought at most Ben Simmons was 6 ft 8 1/4 with out shoes plus it is interesting that Both Al Horford and Tobias Harris have grown an Inch since coming into the League, with these new NBA heights it is going to be interesting who has grown! And who are fibbing the most about their height
