1:05 when Blake stand straight look 2cm taller than 6'7 1/4 low Kevin Love. Blake at 6'8 and Love at 6'7 1/4 isn't a problem, DeAndre could be as low as his draft measurement as he maybe have grow a half inch which from his normal low 6'9 1/4 to 6'9 3/4 now. So sometimes look near 2" between DeAndre and Blake. The clip some scene look like Love is closer to camera and look 1/2" between them. On the court we have see enough there were 2cm between them.

@Christian: none of the players I’ve met have been as tall as listed. But then you have Kevin Durant and Garnett. Both are the listed height maybe give 1/4” or 1/2” for KD
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Aug/19
There are a small minority of players who are listed as the height they truly are, but the vast majority are overlisted by 1" at least. Unfortunately, I've never met an NBA player in person, but I'd love to.

@Questioner: I don’t think they’re all BS. I look at Carmelo Anthony and he’s about what he’s listed 6’6.25 and there are several others who would be within 1/4” of their lows or maybe 1/4” away. I don’t believe that Griffins measurement was made up. They measured him extremely early and close to when he woke up and he was only around 6’8.5 and remember that the NBA doesn’t do 1/8” so it may very well have been 6’8 3/8”. If you’re inside the first hour of waking up, you’re only around 1/4” below your morning height. That was said in the article below which was the same year he was drafted in 2009. My guess is that he loses a full inch in a day being that tall and is only 6’7.75 at a low or even a hair under that. He really just looks a weak 6’8” next to DeAndre Jordan who I believe is at least 6’9.5 maybe even close to 6’9.75 like he was measured at his low
Questioner said on 21/Aug/19
@canson you think the nba just bs's measurments at times I think this dude is barely 6'8" flat on his tallest day and could see as low as 202 centimeters though I stick with 6'7.75" I wish you and @christian could meet some nba players if they say your any taller than 6'5" deduct at least an inch from whatever they claim/list themselves at
said on 18/Aug/19
@Sotiris: half inch max on Love
Canson said on 13/Aug/19
said on 11/Aug/19
@Canson I see Griffin as max 6'7.75".
Here he is w/ 5'8" James Corden in socks (2017)... Click Here
Griffin is half an inch taller than 6'7.25" Kevin Love. Here they are together (2011):
said on 4/Aug/19
Here is Blake with 6’2” Eric Gordon. That is not 6.5” between them. That’s probably 5 plus at best. Blake is not even 6’8” at a low. Out of bed probably 6’8.5 maybe 6’8.75 max or somewhere in between. Again the NBA measures only 1/4, 1/2”, 3/4, 1” no 1/8”s. And he literally woke up at 624 for a 630 am combine and did just one measurement before that so likely he didn’t lose much height from when he woke. Maybe 1/4” tops. Not to mention Chris Kamen who is 6’10” range, has more than 2” on him.
Canson said on 31/Jul/19
Agree with GreyV: 6’8” flat max but weak 6’8” is how he looks with DeAndre Jordan who is 6’9.75. That’s a solid 2” between them minimum in most pics. Maybe something is off and maybe it’s 1.75 who knows
said on 30/Jul/19
Again, if Deandre Jordan only measured 6’9.75, Blake is minimum a full 2” shorter than he is. It also shows that a few guys in 2009 measured 1/2” or even 3/4” taller than they did in 2008 and the fact is mentioned that it was because it was held in the morning. That along with the fact that they don’t use 1/8” increments only 1/4” and 1/2”. Jordan is also about 1.5” shorter than Garnett who is 6’11”.
said on 27/Jul/19
I'd say 6'8" at best barefoot. He's shorter than Gallo, who's a legit 6'9" guy.
Chandler Parsons is also a guy who inflates his height to 6'10" and is basically the same height as Blake.
- Blake, DJ and Gallo
- Gallo and KD
- Blake and Parsons
- Blake and Kevin Love

6'4 a low Michael Strahan is solid 4" shorter than Blake Griffin. Blake is solid 6'8-6'8.25".
Canson said on 23/Apr/19
Blake Griffin is close to 2” shorter than a morning measured 6’9.75 Andre Drummond. I would assume that his hair influenced the measurement to get him to 6’8.5 as he also looks a solid 2” shorter than Deandre Jordan
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Rob: Griffin is at most 6’8”. He doesn’t even look that on the court at times. Looks 6’7.5. He was measured early morning. We saw the video of him only having been up for less than an hour
said on 24/Mar/19
Rob, i'm really suprised that there is no page for Kris Humphries. He is listed at 6ft9. But is he really that big though?
I think given he measured just over 6ft 8 without sneakers, he's more a 6ft 8 guy than 9
Canson said on 22/Dec/18
@Nik: maybe 6’8.5 morning height of some sort. At a low weak 6’8” is how he looks with Deandre Jordan
Nik said on 28/Nov/18
The average guess suggests that this listing could be accurate!

@Rob Seriously, 6'8.5" for Griffin is way too much. Look at Kobe and 6'9" Durant:

Blake next to Kevin Durant
Canson said on 1/Nov/18
@Christian: hmm that’s a good question. Could also have been lifts in socks. I wouldn’t put him below 6’1.5 imho. Maybe he was more 6’2” or 6’2.25 and they have him at 6’2.75
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 31/Oct/18
Wall's supposed 6'2.75" could've been off by an inch and been 6'1.75" but was a legit measurement (meaning taken at his low). That's just my guess.
Canson said on 29/Oct/18
@Viper: it looks to be half inch or 3/4” off. It’s a morning measurement more than likely (anything 2009 or later is) so I could see 6’2.25 or 6’2 flat for him. Although if he were measured early morning at 6’1.75 I’d be surprised. He doesn’t look as low as only 6’1.25 or 6’1 3/8 at a low. Very worst he looks 6’1.5 and really looks a weak 6’2
viper said on 25/Oct/18
Wall's measurement seems like a total typo
Canson said on 16/Oct/18
@Christian: the only measurement I see for Blake is 6’8.5 not 6’7.75. He doesn’t look even 6’8 with Deandre Jordan or Caron Butler or Jamal Crawford. Maybe his hair gave him a slight boost and it was early morning in 2009 as they showed he measured within maybe 30 minutes of waking up. I have Blake at about 6’7.5-6’8”. I do have Caron at 6’5” and Deandre is close to his listed barefoot height of 6’9.75 while I can almost agree Crawford is probably around 6’4.5 (maybe worst case like 194)
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/18
Can you send me the link where it says that Griffin measured 6'7.75"?
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
@James: Griffin measured higher than Love. But Neither guy looks as tall as their pre draft. Love looks maybe 1/2” less while Blake looks half inch taller than Love (6’7.75 imho). Love 6’7.25 but because both measured after laying down likely
James6-4 said on 8/Oct/18
Both Blake Griffen and Kevin Love measured 6'7.75" at the NBA pre-draft camp. Both are listed at 6'10." I get guys adding an inch. In the NBA, I see a lot of 1.5 inch adds. We live in an age of embellishment. I'd say 2.25 inches is a little ridiculous.
Canson said on 30/Sep/18
@Christian: they had less hair when they were drafted I think. Wade was almost bald when he came in. Wall had a touch of it. I wonder if socks were an issue. My buddy who has met Wall several guesses him at around 6’1.5 or so just like SJH did. He said “he’d be lucky to be 6’2 let alone over”.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 29/Sep/18
He's probably in the same situation as Wade and John Wall, as all 3 of them are likely an inch lower than their measurements. Don't know if Wade and Wall had overmeasured due to their hair though.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Sep/18
Even 6'8" is the most that I can see him at. Could be 6'7.75" at his low.
Canson said on 26/Sep/18
@Viper: I can’t. Thick hair like I mentioned and Christian mentioned along with the unknown of his socks. He looks a full 2” shorter than Deandre Jordan. Most I could buy for him is 6’7.5-.75. Weak 6’8”. He doesn’t look any taller than Kevin Love at times and Love is likely a morning height. He is said to be 6’7” by more than one person who has met him including Dan majerle
viper said on 25/Sep/18
I can buy just 6-8 for him
Canson said on 25/Sep/18
@Christian: that’s my speculation as well. And it adds up with Griffin
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Sep/18
This is just my speculation, but I think sometimes the measurers don't fully push the player's hair down all the way, epsecially if they have thick hair. I remember one time when I had thicker hair, the nurse measured me about 1cm taller than I really was because she didn't push it all the way down.
Canson said on 22/Sep/18
My opinion is that he actually measured 6’8.5 like the NBA reported and early AM with the thick hair. Looking at the texture of his hair, that would not be easy to push down all the way. I could almost see him being 6’8-6’8.25 or possibly a full 1/4” early morning and dipping to mid maybe high 6’7” (202 cm range). He never looks less than 2” shorter than Deandre Jordan and next to Caron Butler and Paul Pierce looked the same range (202 possibly). I do believe Deandre Jordan’s height however and if it’s off he’s maybe 6’9.5 at a low
Canson said on 21/Sep/18
@Junior: how much diff would you say is between Blake and Melo in the pic accounting for Melo’s hair being close cut and Blake’s being thick. I would have no more than 1.5” between them honestly.
said on 19/Sep/18
@Junior: Blake doesn’t really have much on Love here. That doesn’t look even 2cm difference. Love looks a full inch maybe 3cm taller than Melo tops. I know I was told by people around me 1.5-2”
With Melo. So from my eyes I saw around 6’6” or a hair over but based on their view I’ll leave the door open for 6’5.75-6’6.25. My guess is that if he’s not 6’6.25, that he would be no less than a solid 6’6”. Love looks to have about half inch on Lebron and maybe 1” or so on Melo
Canson said on 19/Sep/18
@Junior: that looks more than 3-4 cm in the video imho. But it’s hard to tell exactly how much
Canson said on 19/Sep/18
@Junior: I can agree DJ may be 6’9.5 at a low but he appears closer to 2” on Blake. My guess is Blake at best is 6’7.75 maybe 6’7.5. To be honest, he doesn’t look any taller than Kevin Love. Love looks an honest 6’7 maybe 6’7.25. Blake looks next to the 6’10” female fan he had a pic with about 6’7.5 tops
Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 11/Sep/18
@Canson In their glory Clippers days on the court at most they look 1.5", some picture perspective from google image could not view their feet and there might suggest people thinking there is 2" or more between them but really not that much. Blake is 6'8 and DeAndre most likely 6'9 1/2 both their low. Click Here
0:33 can see the difference look 3-4cm and certainly no footwear issues much. One thing that DeAndre small head and high eye level might fool you alot. I ever thought he was 6'10 or over and more looking it he look over 6'10 with shoes not without it. There is really max 4cm real differences between them not over.
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Junior: deandre Jordan looks at least 2” taller than Blake if not more. Most likely that his hair boosted him. There was also a pic of a 6’10 female fan next to him that was posted way back here and he is 2-3” shorter than her
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Sep/18
@Canson We cannot judge one video to prove Griffin being 6'7 1/2. More look at him on the court he look decent 6'8 or just a touch at 203cm. If he hit 205cm with a busting gut he should not be under 203cm at night. Chances are low. Kevin Love is probably not quite under 201cm so a solid 6'7.
Canson said on 11/Jul/18
@Junior: I would actually say that Griffin looks shorter than Love at times during the Lockout Video, not 2cm taller. I completely agree with you that Love is 6’7.25. I only said he was guessed at 6’7” as opposed to 6’8” is what I meant. He looks 6’7.25 with Rose and Noah even if the pic is shopped that is exactly how he would look (Love was never a Bull). Blake likely would edge him in other pics but it’s about half inch. Blake is at least 2” shorter than Deandre.
@Tunman: love wore some thick shoes and or socks when measured. To go from 6’7.75 to 6’9.5. Carlos Boozer did the same thing and it would not surprise me if both were only 6’7.25 at a low or Boozer maybe 6’7.5. Love definitely looks like he’s Lebron’s height or only slightly taller and Lebron May have measured at a morning type height as well
Canson said on 9/Jul/18
@Junior: actually the way that I compared 2006 Senior Bowl to combine that was the average difference 3/8-1/2”. Look at Nick Mangold. 6’3 5/8 combine Senior Bowl 6’3.25. Vincent Jackson 6’4.75 combine 6’4 3/8 combine. Then you had Marcedes Lewis 6’6 3/8 and 6’5 7/8 and others that were that. The most I believe was .6 the least maybe 1/4”. We’re also talking in that case that they woke up at 6am as it indicated it, then they took drug tests, then got measured right after that. That’s likely an hour difference from out of bed to then. And I wouldn’t put it past some to have laid down before being measured and on the same token maybe some didn’t get as much sleep and woke up slightly earlier etc
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jul/18
Atually most people only lost 1/4 even measure early at 6-7am if they didn't sleep well or not over 7 hours of good sleep. Some lost 3/8 (9mm) in a day upon a measurement betweeen 6-8am. Because too much of people having the error measurement by busting a gut measure by the doc (most of my freind did that) that is why they lost a 1/2 before bed when they get a corrected posture looking straight measure at their low but that is more like a strong 1/4 lost.
Tunman said on 4/Jul/18
6'8 flat is a very serious possibility with Chris Paul being more like 5'11.5".Love is likely just 6'7.25 rather than 6'7.75".I assume both were measured early in the morning.It's just funny how the NBA feels the need to boost its players height by 1-2 or even 3"(rarely though) when they're already in the extremely tall ranges a human being can reach
Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 27/Jun/18
@Canson Click Here
Overall untill the end of video look 3/4 inch. We can argue Love is 6'7 1/4 and Griffin is really not under 6'8 both their low. There is no way Love is 6'7 flat.
said on 22/Jun/18
@Junior: Blake has thicker hair than DJ In the videos. That’s minimum 2” on Blake that DJ has. Maybe not more but a full 2” easy. Kevin Love is said to be closer to 6’7” than 6’8” and with Blake that’s hardly any difference. I’d be hard pressed to believe Blake is more than maybe 202cm range maybe 6’7.75. I can agree that DJ is 6’9.5 at a low maybe 6’9.75
said on 22/Jun/18
Rob, not the 205cm?
Definitely does not sound made up
I think his measurement was more a 'not that long' out of bed measurement.
Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 22/Jun/18
@Canson Not that much atually. Some disadvantage camera angle play tricks make Griffin over 2" shorter and more like a 1.25"-1.5" solid difference in fact and DeAndre had better posture most of time and beware that DJ had a higher eye level like Anthony Davis that give illusion being taller. DJ low 6'9 1/2 and Blake 6'8-6'8.25" is fair. Click Here Click Here
Can look 3cm and also 4cm but looks like Griffin did not stand up that well.
said on 14/Jun/18
@Editor Rob: How tall would you say UFC fighter Donald Cerrone looks with Blake? Click Here
Blake's head looks nearly 2 inches longer just in that one shot compared to the other guy's, so possibly 9 inches smaller.
Canson said on 9/Jun/18
@Shane: probably not a lot. Maybe 1/4” or so. Couple that with 6’8.5 was his real measurement most likely not .75. Based on how he appears I wouldn’t give him more than 6’7.5-.75
@Junior: to me he looks a full 2” less than DJ and barely taller than Kevin Love who is guessed at 6’7 sometimes. My guess is that he’s not more than maybe 202
Shane said on 8/Jun/18
@Canson how much can someone like Griffin gain from hair if it isnt really smashed down? And If it was smashed down how much would you estimate?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/May/18
@Canson I understand theres a clip Griffin was measure during draft camp about the 6-7am morning reading at 6'8.75" but probably not full push down a hair so he can't be as low as 6'7.5" at a low. He has to be at least 6'8-6'8 1/8 range.
Tunman said on 27/Apr/18
A very serious chance he's only 6'8 flat,and wouldn't rule out 6'7.75".The dude certainly loses 1 or 1.25" from morning to evening and might have an easy 0.75 to lose if measured 20-30 mins out of bed.Btw if Chris Paul is 5'11.75 in the morning I fail to see how Blake will be anything over 6'8.He hardly looks 8"taller and can give him the benefit of doubt and say 8.5"taller if stood perfectly tall.That still doesn't make him over 6'8 in the evening imo.
Canson said on 13/Mar/18
Definitely a morning height as evidenced. Easily 2” shorter (at least) than Deandre Jordan is (6’9.75). Now DJ was measured In the afternoon as 2008 took place then and it switched for 09. But Blake got a boost for his hair. Looks no better than 202cm at a low
Canson said on 18/Feb/18
He’s def over flat 6’7” but doesn’t quite look a full 6’8”.

Canson said on 6/Feb/18
202 range at a low
said on 29/Dec/17
@Junior: this one isn’t a great pic but all things considered maybe a weak 6’8” is good for Griffin. I know Draymond is closer to 6’5. Maybe max 6’5.25 like you mentioned looks cm or so taller than Kobe and Manning and I can agree for both esp Kobe. This could be 2.5” imho
said on 26/Dec/17
Atually Carmelo look 1.75" shorter than Griffin.
Canson said on 15/Dec/17
@Nik: based on how he looks with Melo who I’ve met he looks abkht 1-1.5” taller maybe 1.25-1.5 and looks 2.25 less than Deandre Jordan so 202cm is my guess he also looks the same as Kevin Love in the lock commercial they did together. Love looks 6’7.5 imho as well max. Blake has very thick hair which played a factor in him getting that high imho. A true 6’8.5 guy wouldn’t be guessed 6’5/6’6 by someone like he was and looking at him with someone like Amare stoudemire he’s shorter than Stat
Nik said on 22/Nov/17
Yes, you are totally correct in that it was a measurement not long after he got out of bed! In all honesty I think he is in the 6'7.5" - 6'8" range and I could easily see him being low down in that range!
said on 21/Nov/17
Under 6’7??? No way. this pic doesn’t tell it all but he has Melo by an inch to inch and a half no more no less in most pics with him. When i met Melo he was 1.5-2” taller than i am and I’m 193.9cm 6’4 1/3. An absolute worst case was 6’6” for him but i would give him 6’6 1/8 at his lowest as a worst and 6’6.25 like he was drafted as another possibility. No more than a full 199cm which is an absolute best. But even if he’s 198 that still makes Blake over 6’7. Blake honestly looks 6’7.5ish next to him if he’s 6’6.25. But for sure not 6’8.5 like listed. That’s more than a 3cm diff with DJ and that’s assuming DJ is actually a full 208cm. I’d say DJ is absolutely no less than 6’9.5 tho but no more than 6’9.75 either
Canson said on 21/Nov/17
@Nik: you got it! An inch south at least. Don’t think 201 but prob 202. 6’7.5. I think the thick hair coupled with a morning measurement. He got measured not long after waking up from the video we saw. Looking at him with Deandre Jordan, Jordan looks minimum of 2” taller
Nik said on 21/Nov/17
Strong 6'7" or weak 6'8"!
Nik said on 21/Nov/17
He is south of his listing in my opinion.
Canson said on 20/Nov/17
@Anonymous: i would say Blake is more like 202 but you’re right he’s nowhere near 6’8.75 at his lowest. He’s around the same as Kevin Love is. That is very odd even if it’s first thing in AM. That has to have included some hair. DJ has him by ablut 2”. And was 6’9.75 draft height and may be that or could be 6’9.5 like you said and a hair taller than Durant is but not more than a cm.
Greek said on 20/Nov/17
This guy is 6ft7 . or 201cm at most. Anonymous is right .
Anonymous said on 19/Nov/17
Or well, he looks about 201 next to Jordan that I guess is about 206-7. But the problem is KD
Anonymous said on 19/Nov/17
Blake not even look a full 6'7.
Anonymous said on 19/Nov/17
Rob, you can add DeAndre Jordan. Listed barefoot 6'9"5, seems right and would put KD Under his claim.
Canson said on 25/Oct/17
@Junior: I would’ve said the same but I saw how he looks with DJ and draymond Kobe etc. I think 6’8.5 or .75 was his draft height (thick hair as well may have pushed it up a hair).
Junior said on 23/Oct/17
I don't think Griffin is anything under 6'8 especially he was measured 6'8.75" in the early morning rob mention here. I did go with 203.5cm before bed.

He doesn’t look more than 202 with Deandre Jordan

Lamar Odom tilt down head alot with Vitali Klitschko, there is 7cm i can see if Odom looking up straight. Believe or not Odom is not shorter than 6'9.5" Kevin Durant. Odom is at least 207cm and Vitali Klitschko 200-200.5cm max.
: Definitely 7cm minus off Vitali Klitschko hair.

@Anthony: that isn't 100% true what you said about being listed 2" taller for "each" player. I've played ball with both Keith Bogans as well as Jarrett Jack and Joe Forte when he played years back. All three of them are either within and inch or exactly at most an inch off of what they are listed on the NBA rosters. I myself am 193.9 at night and with Bogans he's worst case 6'4 best case he's the 6'4.25 he's listed pre draft (6'5 on the roster) at as he literally was identical with me. Forte's 6'3.5 pre draft (6'4 roster) as well was about a believeable figure as he's likely no worse than maybe 6'3.25 at his lowest (1" shorter than me) and Jack was 2" shorter at 6'2.25ish and he was listed at 6'2.5 for his draft (6'3 NBA) The worst jack could be is 188 but I'd say he's a solid 2 less than me.
I do agree with a lot of what you said tho because many of the NBA pre drafts are overlisted. I'd actually put Odom worst case as maybe a 6'8.5-.75 guy at night you're right he could look about 4 (I'd say 5cm taller than Vitali). I'd go with 6'6.75 for Vitali at night as he looks about 4cm taller than Wlad. Odom fits with Kobe 4" taller than he is and looks 3.5" taller than Metta World Peace who admitted he is 6'5.5 below (he's listed 6'7). I'd say Metta is a worst case maybe 6'5.25ish. I remember Reggie Miller said once that Metta is "his height" around 6'5 or 6'6. I'd say at worst Metta is a strong 6'5.
Fast forward to about 2:09 when Big Boi asks him how tall he is.
Anthony said on 27/Aug/17
Odom is 6ft8 max.He's listed at 6ft10 .A 6ft9 guy can never be listed at 6ft10 always 6ft11 .The pic with klitchiko is all the proof odom doesn't look more than 4cm taller even an inch footwear advantage .Honestly you guys on here have very bad height judgement .Kind of annoying .

@Joe: I believe 100% it was in the AM because of the video we saw along with the piece that came out where they were switched from afternoon to morning going from 08 to 09. But also Blake has very thick hair however but I can believe him measuring (less than half hour out of bed maybe 6'8.25ish). I can see the hair possibly giving him a fraction. Someone his size will likely lose a full inch in a day so I can see him weak 6'8" 6'7.5/.75 next to Deandre Jordan or Kevin love. I have a hard time seeing 6'8.75 or .5 though if deandre Jordan is only 6'9.75. He's clearly a full 2" taller than Blake is if not a hair more tbh. I also look at how he stakcs up with Jamal Crawford or J.J. Red****. Crawford looks exactly his draft height or near it with Kobe as they look identical in pics (of course .25" is not easy to decipher and it's possible One had less forswear etc to offset) nonetheless he looks it and so does Red****. His is 6'4" and he looks at least like he's 6'3.75 at his lowest to me. Blake doesn't look 4" taller than Either of them tbh. Maybe 3" on the former 3.5" on the latter. Ditto for Lamar Odom he was taller than Blake noticeably looked over an inch to me when they played together and that's to say Odom is a solid 6'9" may be or may dip under himself.
On a side note I don't see the point in measuring an early morning measurement now if it wasn't done before to tell you the truth. Not like a coach or exec can't compare the player to someone else on the team and tell how tall they really are esp if the other is measured even just a few hours later

i believe the draft is measured in morning
Canson said on 30/Jun/17
@Joe: Mine is only about 1/4" off where you have it 6'7.5-.75. And I only even go that low for Blake because of how he looks with Deandre Jordan or Kevin Love not to mention the pic he had with a 6'10 female Clippers fan. I saw it maybe 2 years back
Before bed 202-202.5

6'7.5 barefoot at his lowest.
Morning plus thick hair 6'8.5
Canson said on 30/May/17
@Joe: this is a tough one. I've met Caron butler on multiple occasions and he is at worst a weak 196cm (no lower than maybe a flat 6'5) although he looked roughly 196 at his low (2cm taller than me no less than 1.5cm. Blake doesn't look more than maybe 2-3" taller than butler and looks at worst 2 full inches under Jordan.

He's definitely 6'8.75. There's a documentary out there where they show him getting measured.
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
205 out of bed (206 with his Brillo pad hair)
202 at his lowest
He's at minimum 2" shorter than a reliably measured Deandre Jordan 6'9.75.
Canson said on 11/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I agree. I've met Butler on many occasions and he looks a legit 196cm. He's a cm or so over Kobe as well. 202.5 is prob good for Blake (6'7.75) like you said or 6'7.5
S.J.H said on 9/Mar/17
Blake griffin can look max 7cm taller than caron butler. If caron butler most likely just measure in morning at 6'5.25 so griffin is def 6'8.25 and that extra 0.25 may have include his hair to reach up 6'8.5 or he lost more height a day than butler could be a fact. Griffin can be a good 6'7'75 that explain why he often look around 2" shorter than 6'9.75 deandre jordan
said on 4/Mar/17
So how is he 6'8.5 when he's virtually at most 2" taller than Caron butler. Oh and I have met butler in person more than once and played against him. He's 2cm max taller (between 1/2-1"). Butler is 196cm barefoot

@Hank said on 4/Jan/17
That was a worst camera angle. I bet you exchange where they're standing and blake griffin could look an inch taller than a 6'9.5 kevin durant
See how 6'9.5 demarcus cousins edge out 6'10 deandre jordan. Lol. Camera angle was a prey sometimes Click Here
said on 4/Jan/17
I don't think Blake can be 6'8.5'' if Kevin Durant is only 6'9.25''
Canson said on 29/Dec/16
There is zero chance that he's 6'8.5 next to Deandre Jordan and Matt Barnes without hair even in the morning. Yes with the hair and In the morning possible. With DJ that's minimum a 2" diff but looks 5-6cm. That's putting him 6'7.5-.75. Barnes at 6'6.75 only looks "about" an inch shorter than him
said on 28/Oct/16
Rob, What would you say his head length is? Thanks!
Editor Rob: a solid 10 incher
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
I'd say unless DJ grew Blake doesn't look even 6'8" with him. It's possible DJ is over a flat 6'10 and Blake 6'7.75-6'8. @Height: What do you think for Blake Griffin? I could almost believe he's 6'8" if I hadn't seen the pic of the 6'10 female fan and DJ next to him also him with Kevin Love?
Canson said on 9/Jul/16
I honestly believe the hair boosted the measurement and it was in the AM. He doesn't look near 6'9 or even over 6'8 next to Deandre Jordan or Matt Barnes or Jamal Crawford. Looks between 202-203 to be honest (maybe 1.5" taller than Melo)
Canson said on 1/Apr/16
@S.J.H: I'm aware of the height diff between morning and night. I myself lose 3/4" from out of bed to evening. But yes some players are measured in the morning others aren't (see the post from sports height on Steph curry's page and the link). I've seen some NBA players where I've been pleasantly surprised one being Caron Butler who is his measured 6'5.25 (1/2" or so taller than me) and Keith Bogans (very slightly shorter at 6'4.25). Another Larry Johnson who looked 6'5-6'5.5. I'm 6'4.5-.75. So from that I can tell all three guys were normal measurements not "eye openers". And I am one to say the predrafts are crap, but Kevin love actually also looks the height he was measured in socks. Most who have posted say he looks "about 6'8" and he looks notably taller than Lebron when next to him. But if he is really 1/2" shorter than Blake (I couldn't see any difference), then you are 100% correct about it being a morning measurement and that he'd drop to 6'7.25. That'd make him like you said. Though they said to begin measuring in the AM in 2009 after he was drafted.
now Blake on the other hand, there is debate. He looks nowhere near what he was supposedly measured. He stands next to Deandre Jordan (6'9.75) there is at least a 2" difference and he stood next to a 6'10 female fan who had him 2-3 inches. My guess is Blake got a boost from his hair (see what I posted below along with Rob)- prob just 1/2" tho and as we know he was an AM measurement. I think that adds up if DJ got an afternoon measurement (very likely did as he looks the height he's billed and is only maybe 1-1.5" shorter than KG.

No canson. Blake griffin still edge out love by at least half inch like that. Kevin love was measure at 6'7.75 and pre-draft measurement at age19 and all players are measure in the early morning. In reality to say kevin love could be hovering 6'7.25 or if he grew a big fraction or so he could be 6'7.5 (dont look over 202cm) and blake griffin was measure at 6am plus with socks at 6'8.75 he might have drop below 6'8.25 untill night but not under 6'8 (203.2cm) . Trust me i have try the draft measurement for experiment myself like those players i sleep after 11pm and wake up 6am sharp with thick socks after brushing teeth and washing face dragging time about 15minutes then i get measured twice from 0.6 to 0.7" taller than the height i get measure in the evening/night. Thick socks can boost up like 2 to 4mm depending on body weight and socks. More intense to say blake griffin is 6'8.25 and kevin love is 6'7.5
said on 12/Nov/15
I did notice on nba's twitter feed they posted a few photos like this:
A guy with hair like that may well be getting a fraction extra using the stadiometer.
It's good to see they can now afford stadiometers, they must have been saving up. Also, good to see that guy on the floor making sure there are no sock lifts hidden...
said on 10/Nov/15
Do you think it's possible that his thick hair was accounted for in that measurement? After looking at it he does look a weak 6'9 if timing is similar with Deandre Jordan only if his hair is accounted for. He actually looks the exact same height as 6'7.75 Kevin love in many pictures they have together including a side by side for 1-800 Lockout if we go to his scalp.
Editor Rob: since the bigger guy was measuring using a triangle I think it would have been a good enough measurement and flattened the hair right down. But he may well fall to about 6ft 8 though, depends really just how fast from rising he measured...also I think he might not have had a full sleep either, more like 6 hours.
Canson said on 9/Nov/15
Deandre came out at a younger age than Blake so it is possible he grew. But I don't see much more than 6'10ish barefoot for DJ. Def not 6'11. Blake on the other hand doesn't look and doubt he is that tall. I watched that link of him training and the lady pegged him as 6'5/6'6 before he said 6'9. He gives more of a 6'7-6'8 impression with 6'9 in shoes being more likely than barefoot esp with DJ and with other pics I've seen. It's possible he wore extra socks or that the measurement was off or was really his in shoes
said on 8/Nov/15
At 4:05 he refers to himself as 6"9" Click Here
said on 6/Nov/15
Rob, how tall do you think his teammate Deandre Jordan is? He was measured 6'9.75 barefoot but in some pictures he looks taller than that if Blake is 6'8.5
Here's an example:
Editor Rob: he could be taller than that or did he gain more height?
Tunman said on 5/Nov/15
Rob,maybe bringing him down to 6'8 would be a good compromise?It's a little troubling to see 3.75" difference between him and Kobe.Guys like Wade and Griffin need to be given their lowest to create some balance with Kobe.

If a girl like Gwendoline loses 1.5 inches
I still laugh at that.
said on 2/Nov/15
If a girl like Gwendoline loses 1.5 inches, how much do 6'8+ range guys lose? 2 inches, Rob? If he measured 6'8.75 early morning, maybe he really could dip below 6'8? Like 6'7.5-6'7.75? After all, Tunman said you said he was 6'7.5-6'7.75 in the past...
[Editor Rob: the chances increase of shrinking that amount, but there is of course variation. Generally you'd expect someone that range to lose over an inch.
There's rapid loss in the morning...I think out of bed the guy would be 6ft 9 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/15
Earlier in the day perhaps. Not under 6ft8 though

jtm said on 1/Nov/15
shouldn't he be listed 6'8-6'8.25 if he was measured early in the morning?
The 6'8.75" measurement came from an early morning measurement but the measurement he was eventually listed with in his official draft measurement was the one Rob has here. So we can assume he had already shrunk down somewhat for this one.
[Editor Rob: he was carrying a pair of sneakers that are within the 'air force one' range, so to me the 8.75 and 8ft 10 in sneakers makes sense.
Those didn't look 1.5 inch sneakers, for me it's more believable he was the 8.75 as he said and the sneakers roughly 1.25 rather than 1.5 range. A small transcription error is very possible.
Tunman said on 1/Nov/15
Yeah,jtm even assuming he was measured say 20 mins out of bed he won't be more than 6'9 right out of bed.And he won't lose anything less than a full inch.6'8 is the max in my opinion and he certainly dips under the mark after a day of training.

Tunman said on 31/Oct/15
Finally,a listing for Blake.Now I would be very surprised he's that tall.I remember having asked you about this guy and you said he could be around 6'7.5 and 6'7.75.One thing is sure,he won't be more than 6'8 flat if he was measured quite early in the morning.Remember a guy at this height could lose 3-4cms.somewhere between 202 and 203 is likely.

he looks that height next to austin rivers

Rob, maybe 205cm?
[Editor Rob: he definitely could be that.]

He edge out 6ft7.75 Kevin Love by a fraction. He was 6'8 not over
Big C said on 29/Oct/15
Yeah he does look just over 6'8 here, hes a big guy.
said on 29/Oct/15
As an athlete he's a pretty active guy. Do you think he ever dips below 6'8 Rob?
[Editor Rob: possibly could after a hard session]

Rob, I assume you're getting this measurement from the episode of The Rookie where he says "six-eight-and-three-quarters" and it flashes on the screen, but he was reported on DraftExpress and everywhere else as being 6'8.5". All his other measurements shown in that video are consistent with those reported by other sources, so I feel like the safest assumption is that Blake's height claim was inaccurate, and he was actually measured at 6'8.5". Assuming that's true, I feel like his aggregate height would be closer to 6'8.25", unless of course he's grown since getting drafted (he was 20 at the time).
