How tall is Boris Kodjoe

Boris Kodjoe's Height

6ft 4 (193 cm)

Austrian born Model and Actor known for roles in Resident Evil:Afterlife, Soul Food, The Gospel, Starship Troopers 3, Addicted and Love & Basketball. On his official website bio page it used to list his height as 6ft 3, his German acting agency 190cm and Ford Models gave him 6ft 2, but in a 2012 comic con interview on upcoming-movies he mentioned his tall stature and weight: "I'm 6'4", 220", which he also said on twitter in 2009:
The Paparazzi just got a shot of me coming out of my trailer in my robe and ski hat looking like a 6'4, 220 pound Hugh Hefner.

What are you even talking about, Christian? LOL How would I need evidence to prove that Lillard and Smith worked with Shepard and Phillips, when that's a FACT, also proven by pics where they're standing next to each other (which you would acknowledge, if you sometimes got your facts straight before running your mouth)? LMFAO
Btw, of course none of their claims prove anything, to me. Just like Conan guessing Liam taller doesn't. On the other hand though, since you insist that Conan guessing Liam taller proves that Liam was actually taller than Conan, you should also believe that Shepard is 6'4.5 and Phillips is 6'+, by the SAME LOGIC. Well, if you wanted to be consistent, though I'm sure that's something you don't really bother about, right? :-)
And again, Rob saying that 2-3 inches between Boris and Patrick is possible has NOTHING to do with his perception of height (which concerns how accurate he is in guessing people's heights IN PERSON), so what you're saying is totally moronic and nonsensical indeed!

What about when Conan guessed Liam as taller than him? If they were the same height as you're implying, then why did Conan ever make that comment in the first place? As for Johnson, I'm not saying that he necessarily intentionally inflated athletes. He could've genuinely believed that almost every athlete grew. All I know is that he's certainly not the best candidate to launch a height site. Unlike Johnson, I use logic when I believe that an athlete has been mismeasured or that the measurement was an error.

Of course nobody is perfect but now we see that Johnson had Derrick Rose at 189 and that he grew since being drafted. He was just measured again and is now listed 6’1” here by Rob as opposed to 6’1.5” so no chance he was any higher than that, like I said all along now. Chances are he’s either 6’1 flat, sub 6’1” or 6’1.25” at a low. Also he said at one point that there was only a 4” difference between Rose and Melo which is false or that Rose is as tall as Hinrich when he’s not. It’s minimum 5” with Melo as I said all along. It does show that all this excessive “growing” is ridiculous tho

How do you know for sure though that Lillard exactly knows Shepard's height, or that Smith exactly knows Phillips', or vice versa? Were you there with them in person when they were colleagues and filming a movie/show? If not, then you have no evidence, and it proves nothing. I'm using your same logic, in that you disregard any poster claiming to have met a celeb as no evidence whatsoever.
And it doesn't matter whether Rob met Boris/Patrick or not, my point with my argument is that you take Rob's estimates (whether the estimate is based on him meeting a celeb or based on pics) as gospel only when it's convenient.
Andrea said on 5/Oct/19
No evidence? LOL Unlike you, Christian, I don't use words loosely, and in fact there's a reason why I called them "colleagues", that is that they worked together, so, if anything, they should have a better idea about those people's height, given that they spent a lot of time with them.
And last time I checked, Rob didn't meet Boris and Patrick, so there you go again, with another moronic and nonsenical "argument" of yours. All he said is that 2-3 inches between them is possible, which all depends on which pics he has seen, given that, from what I've seen, I still wouldn't go with more than 2 inches.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Oct/19
@Andrea
To compare Lillard and Smith's situations to Conan's, is in itself moronic and nonsensical. There's no evidence that Lillard or Smith stood close and eye to eye with Shepard or Phillips respectively, while there was clear video evidence that Conan did with Neeson.
And once again, you use Rob to be the be all and end all, but only when it suits you. Where was your "Rob has a good perception of height" line when you disagreed with him that Patrick's 2"-3" taller than Boris? I don't disagree with you that he has good perception, but I don't use that as a crutch, unlike what you're doing.
Canson said on 4/Oct/19
So if Rob has that good of a perception of height, then his assessment of 2-3” between Boris and Patrick Kodjoe must be an accurate assessment!
Andrea said on 3/Oct/19
And you claim that you use logic, Christian? LOL What you just said makes completely no sense at all, LMFAO! I don't know about Conan, but I'm sure that Rob has a good perception of height (given that he's been running a height site for over 15 years, measured several people at many different marks, etc.), so comparing him to Conan is totally moronic and nonsensical.
Btw, you didn't reply to my points. Do you think that Shepard is 6'4.5 and Phillips 6'+? After all, that's what their colleagues Lillard and Smith guessed them at in person... "See, you can't conveniently pick and choose when you want it to matter and when you don't" INDEED!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Oct/19
@Andrea
If it doesn't prove anything, then by the same token, neither is Rob meeting a celeb. After all, it only depends on Rob's perception, apparently. Yet you've used listings of celebs who Rob met (like Wentworth Miller and Casper Van Dien), whom stood next to Boris, as evidence that Boris is 6'4". Going by your logic, who's to say that Miller's 6'0.5", or that Casper's 5'9.25"? They could be 5'11.5" or 5'8", because apparently, Rob's perception is the only thing that matters. See, you can't conveniently pick and choose when you want it to matter and when you don't.
Andrea said on 1/Oct/19
And we've already been there too, Christian... Why do we always have to discuss about the same things? The fact that Conan guessed Liam as taller than him doesn't prove anything because it all depends on Conan's perception of height. Otherwise, going by the same logic, just to give you a couple of examples, Dax Shepard should be 6'4.5 (just because Matthew Lillard once claimed that Shepard is an inch taller than him) and Lou Diamond Phillips 6'+ (just because Brian J. Smith once claimed that Phillips is a bit taller than him), which is laughable, to say the least.
As for Johnson, again, he could easily say the exact same thing about you... As you can see, "logic" can be quite subjective and questionable.
Canson said on 30/Sep/19
@Christian: Liam also acknowledged that he’s taller than Conan when he nodded

@Canson
I will say that Conan at times can look 191 flat, but I have him at 191.5.192 at the max but no more.

@Christian: I think that’s a fair range for him. 191-192 range is what I have him at. 191.5 is probably reasonable considering that Levi May only be 190. But being told “ I have already told you” sounds to me like a contradiction to facts/opinions at your convenience especially being it’s an opinion. The only “fact” is that both men acknowledged Liam being taller than conan. Maybe it’s half inch but it’s clear he’s not quite as tall
Andrea said on 21/Sep/19
And just as I feared, Christian, you're really using that clip to "prove" that Neeson was 0.75 inches taller than Conan, LOL. Again. I don't know whether you have memory problems or something else, but here's what I have already told you about that on Conan's page:
"Considering that the camera is clearly on Liam's side, that's a pretty bad clip to draw any conclusion from, Christian, but if anything, I would say that Conan doesn't look much different than him when Liam isn't raising his eyelevel, DESPITE the camera disadvantage: Click Here "
As for Johnson, again, by the same logic, you have no evidence to show that he really "inflates" measured athletes, considering that he can always say that they have grown (if measured around a certain age) or they were mismeasured (like you did with certain athletes). As I said, things can't be facts or opinions at your convenience!

It's a fact, because Johnson showed that he's not knowledgeable enough, otherwise he wouldn't have inflated nearly every measured athlete here. I've even seen a few posters here before say that shoes should be included as part of your height, which is even worse than Johnson. Obviously people like them aren't knowledgeable either. What Joe and Junior said about you wasn't a fact, but rather just an opinion. Neither you or they have no evidence to show that you're one of the best estimators on this site.
Canson said on 19/Sep/19
While the angles are bad in the video, Conan only looks as tall as Jared or taller when Jared first stands up and he is clearly not standing as straight as he is at the end of the video when he’s clearly taller than Conan after he does the keg stand. Again, angles being that it looks more than it probably is at the end of the video as well. That said, i still would give Jared the edge of minimum half inch and I don’t rule out 191 cm based on that for Conan. Jared being 193cm is very much believable but Conan at the Mark looks suspect

Neeson has a bit of camera advantage, but he's still noticeably taller than Conan. It could be just 1/2" as well, but no less. Click Here Btw, I put Conan at 191.5, not 191 flat. Check out my comment from Zachary Levi's page.
Andrea said on 18/Sep/19
That's the same thing, Christian. And if it's like you say, by the same logic, I could easily say that what Joe and Junior said is a fact too... or that you aren't knowledgeable enough about height to launch a height site either, and call it a fact.
Btw, LOL at the "PROBABLY" thing. How desperate can you be to grasp at something like that? LMFAO

6’7/6’7.5 Magic Johnson with Conan
Canson said on 18/Sep/19
Neeson at his peak was taller than Conan. How much is debatable though. but both Conan and Neeson saw a difference. Hasselhoff also edged Conan (when Conan got on his tip toes) and so did Selleck (albeit maybe with a footwear advantage) when Conan asked him if he was 6’4/6’5”, so they could be the same being Selleck also admitted he’s 6’3.5”. Either way, Conan wouldn’t have been over 6’3.5” at his peak since that’s when most of those comparisons occurred and Kobe Bryant also had more than just a solid inch inch on him. 6’3.5” is a very reasonable estimate for Conan. It’s even debatable as to whether he’s even lost height and if he has probably nothing negligible. 6’3.25-.5 is even reasonable
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 17/Sep/19
@Andrea
I've never said that there's no such thing as a good or bad poster. That has nothing to do with what I said about this site shouldn't being competition. As for Johnson, he isn't knowledgeable enough about height to launch a height site, and that's not just my opinion, that's a fact. Comparing that to Joe and Junior complimenting you, is like comparing apples to oranges. Btw, Joe and Junior didn't say that you're PROBABLY one of the best estimators, they simply said that you are, so it's not the same as me saying (even though I don't really remember it) that I PROBABLY have a bit more knowledge than most posters.
Andrea said on 17/Sep/19
@Christian: agreed. Very well said. Excellent points. I couldn't have said it any better. Astonishing post!!!
Anyway... You're letting your imagination run away with you, Christian! First of all, I've never claimed that Conan is the full 6'4 for sure, but that if Zach (and Jared) is near his listing, he can't possibly be as low as 191. And that's very inconsistent, other than delusional, of YOU to guess Conan at 191 AND Zach at 190, or even more so Conan at 191 AND Jared at 193. Second of all, as for Neeson, I thought we had already been there, but maybe I'm wrong. Based on what Neeson was SUPPOSEDLY 0.75 inches taller than Conan? Hmm...
Canson said on 17/Sep/19
@Christian: I would have an easier time believing Levi is 6’2.75 before I believed he was 6’3.25. Baldwin said that he’s an inch shorter and even though Rob didn’t say it plainly, he did leave the door open for Baldwin to perhaps dip a hair under the mark. He only said that if he stood his best he sees 6’4” range. It’s very feasible for a guy who looks 6’4 range to hit 6’3 7/8” at a low and I could only tell if the person comparing him to is a hair over 6’3” or a hair over 6’4”. I do trust Rob as he met him in person but that doesn’t mean he can’t dip below the 6’3” mark. The video with Levi and Conan at times it appeared more of a difference but then at times it could even look slightly under an inch or at best an inch. I stand firm with a 1” difference and there is a clear (minimum) 3/8” difference with footwear as Levi is in a canvas shoe. So if we went with 190 cm then Conan would be 191.5. But back to Conan and Liam or Boris and Liam. If anyone is taller it’s Liam on both fronts (in their respective peaks).
I would give Liam a chance at over 6’4” more than I would the other two. I’ve never ruled out 193-193.5 for Neeson and even 193-194 is a remote possibility peak. I stick with probably the former or a solid 6’4” but I struggle to see Liam dipping below the 6’4” Mark except maybe at an extreme low and even that is a big question mark. As for Conan, Liam was clearly the taller of the two and not only did Conan acknowledge that he thought it was an inch but Neeson also acknowledged it when he nodded his head. I’m still not sure it was a full inch, but 2cm I could see between them and in no way less than half inch. This was (of course) a peak Neeson. People forget that Selleck also edged Conan and Conan admitted that when he guessed him 6’4/6’5” and Conan said “I’m 6’4 but I’m not”. Now Rising pointed out the boots Selleck was wearing but even if he had a slight a height advantage, it would mean Conan is at best 6’3.5 like Selleck (assuming Selleck really has as much as half inch on him in footwear). Selleck not only claimed 6’3.5 twice as Rising pointed out but he looked it with 6’2.5 Ted Danson and 6’5” Darryl Strawberry. Conan also claimed to be 6’4 1/2” before which he’s only that in shoes. Now a good comparison would be Conan and Boris. I’ve never seen the two together but I bet they would be hard to tell apart without standing back to back as the absolute highest I could see Boris having seen pics of him with Jordan Barkley and Kobe who have been measured is 6’3.5”

As for the pics with Rick Fox. I need better pics for both. With Levi despite the lean it isn’t as much as 4-5” as Viper suggested. Fox would likely have a little less than 3” on Levi. As for Boris, again, I don’t see Fox standing straight as if you look at the top of their heads it appears as much as it was with Kobe (at Best) and I know beyond reasonable doubt that Fox is taller than Kobe (Rob alluded to that before when someone else asked him to upgrade Kobe) and Rob said he met Fox and that he’s not the full 6’6”. Kobe also has at minimum 3cm on Boris in the pic even with slight disadvantage in footwear (minimum 1/8” difference perhaps more).

Canson said on 16/Sep/19
@Viper: with Boris, it’s possible he isn’t either. He appears to have around the same amount of height on him in the pic (aside from his shoulders not being straight) as Kobe has on Boris. Fox has always been taller than Kobe and Rob even said Fox wasn’t 6’6” in person
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Sep/19
@Canson
Very true, this is the pot calling the kettle black once again. Andrea said that Junior was inconsistent for guessing Zachary Levi at 6'3.25" and Boris at 6'3.25", because of that pic where Boris looked taller next to Rick Fox compared to Zachary, yet here he is guessing Conan at 6'4" and at the same time saying that Boris could be taller than a peak Neeson, when a peak Neeson looked close to an inch taller than Conan. So does that mean peak Neeson's 6'4.75" and Boris' 6'5"? Because that's what's implied, based on Andrea's own logic.
viper said on 16/Sep/19
Canson you're right it's closer to 3 the more I look at it.

Even then Fox isn't standing straight. Still strange
Andrea said on 15/Sep/19
When did you ever "call out" viper, Christian? And more importantly, what can he be braggadocious about? LOL
And again, NOBODY ever said that this site is a competition, so why you keep mentioning that? As I said, if you truly believed that there are no good or bad posters, estimate-wise, why did you feel the need to say that Johnson is not knowledgeable enough to open a height site in the first place? That's no different than Joe saying I am one of the best height estimators... Btw, I did quote you claiming to have more knowledge about height than the majority of people on here (see the quotation marks), so you said it indeed (go check it yourself). And the fact that you said "PROBABLY" doesn't exonerate you from claiming that, so don't even try to grasp at that.
Canson said on 14/Sep/19
The only reason that Viper even said that he was better than anyone is because his name was, once again, brought up in a discussion in a negative way for no reason.otherwise the topic would’ve never even come up
Andrea said on 14/Sep/19
As I said on his page, I have not seen enough of a peak Neeson to tell with certainty, but in movies like Taken he never struck me as being a big 6'4 guy. So yes, Christian, unless he had already lost a noticeable fraction by then, I think there's a better chance of Boris being taller than a peak Neeson. I don't see what's so funny about it.
If you want to talk about funny things, what about you thinking that Boris is only 6'3 AND someone like Tyler Perry 6'4.25? Click Here OMEGALUL
P.S. Looks like the usual spammers have implemented a new way to flood the pages... As if the classic double comment (on a good day) wasn't enough. Nice! 😅

@Andrea
Actually, I did call out Viper when he was being a bit braggadocious. I didn't remember what I said exactly, but I believe it was similar to what I've said recently about this site shouldn't being a competition.
Secondly, I don't remember ever saying that I probably have a bit more knowledge than most visitors, but even if I did say that, the key word is PROBABLY, which means it's merely a possibility.
Thirdly, I've even told Rob that banning you temporarily wasn't right, let alone permanently. So this isn't me trying to make you owe me a favor or anything, it's just me being me, which is speaking out against injustice where I see it, regardless of whether I like a poster or not.

You really think that there's a better chance of Boris being taller than a peak Neeson? LOL

Yep and That’s a contradiction and very inconsistent, as well, because if you recall we got all types of hell about Conan being 6’3.25”. If Neeson really had a chance of being sub 6’4” then the 6’3.25” guesses you and I gave for Conan on Levi’s page have some merit and are more than fair. Hell 6’2.75 or 6’3” would become fair game for Conan then. Conan admitted Neeson was taller which he clearly was, and he thought it was by an inch. “I’m 6’4 so you must be 6’5”. Maybe it was less but it was a difference and Liam even knew that much. So, if anything, Neeson has a better chance of not even dropping all the way down to 6’4” as Johan said. I actually have thought at times maybe 6’4 1/8” and even the 1/4” is possible but solid 6’4” is worst case for Neeson in his prime. If Boris really is taller than Neeson or if Neeson had any chance in his prime of dipping under 6’4” at a “normal low”, it means that Conan is not even close to his listing. We Can’t have it both ways here (Boris taller than Neeson and Conan being close to 6’4 or even over 6’3.25 or 6’3). Something has got to give.

Boris, I would put money, dips below 6’4” even if it’s only to maybe 192cm. If Boris were really a solid 6’4” the difference with Kobe would also be marginal (more difficult to see in a picture) especially being he had a slight footwear advantage on him and he would also look closer to Michael jordan and he’s noticeably shorter than both. Ditto for an aged Charles Barkley. In fact there is a pic of Barkley and Conan that I posted where it looks as low as 2cm between them. If Boris is taller than Neeson it would mean Boris and Barkley would be identical when they are not. Barkley has more than 2 on Boris even when we take into account he has more footwear. Kobe clearly has a minimum of 3cm on Boris (if not more), which everyone here alluded to and it was even said by some who believe Boris is 6’4” that Boris looks only as low as 192 and it’s only with Kobe. Neeson is taller than Conan so there is no chance he was under 6’4” at his peak.

I mean we can go back to Zach Levi’s page and see the logic used there as well as a post that was mentioned to me on this page. It’s a contradiction and I can use the same logic here.

What's so controversial is your cringeworthy inconsistency and hypocrisy, Christian. Again. As I said, you didn't say a thing when viper claimed to be better than me, yet for some reason, Joe's and Junior's comments annoyed you to the point that you had to answer to both of them with your typical hypocrisy, by even putting, in Junior's case, words in their mouth (he NEVER said that this site is about competition). Besides, you are the first one who put himself on a pedestal in the past, by claiming something like "I probably have a bit more knowledge about heights and height differences than the majority of visitors here" (LOL at that), which is in total contradiction with what you're trying to say now.
Btw, I never asked you to defend me, much less against someone like Greg, whose words are just a waste of time. So don't even try to rub it in my face (like you already did in the past), as if I owed you something!

@johan 185cm seems you have a habit of upgrading everyone though I will admit some are justified

He didn’t upgrade anyone here

-------------

Not agreeing with their listing = upgrading apparently.

I will say this, through the years I was a voice asking for 5'9.25" Taylor Swift, 6'2.5" Dwayne Johnson, 6'1.5" Triple H, 5'9" Kendall jenner, who all got downgraded. I also think merriman is at best 6'3" but more 6'2.75" and that Hogan was absolute peak 6'5.5". There are alot more but the only times I have asked for an upgrade was

1. Liam neeson
2. Jared Padalecki.

I felt they both deserved 6'4.25", especially Neeson at peak.

As for Boris I can see why people at times think 6'3" range but next to guys like Kim Coates who Rob has met in person he does look his listing.

I can relate. At times that I have guessed below Rob’s listing, I’ve been called a downgrader and other times I’ve seen others called that for the same reason. This includes athletes who Rob even said before that “most” of their measured heights will not be their normal low let alone extreme low. I consider my “normal” low (not even extreme low) to be my true height both here on the site and outside of it. I can also agree with Rob regarding the approximate height after 5 hours of being (the apparent standard here) awake as I’ve always seen that it puts me only around 1/8” above a normal afternoon height. Of course I tend to preface mine with normal low but even then a normal low is closer to the 5 hours awake than a morning height.

I’ve also seen where people “consistently” guess every celeb 2” or 3” shorter than their perceived height or an inch or two or three taller than their claim or measured height, both of which fall into the category you mentioned. But the common sense approach, as it is most prevalent in society, most people will end up shorter than they claim than taller. I’ve really seen maybe 3-4 men over a lifetime claim shorter than they actually are and by shorter I mean an inch or more. Rounding down from 6’1.5 or 6’1.75” to 6’1” isn’t that extreme if we can accept someone else rounding up to 6’2” from 6’1.25 at a low all because they hit 6’2” or near it out of bed in the morning or in footwear. It’s viewed in more of a negative light when they round down though which to me is ridiculous because it’s no different than a guy who is closer to 6’1” claiming 6’2”. However the ones I’ve seen truly downplay are guys that are several inches over 6’1” like 6’6+ or women who may hit 6’0 or 6’1 at a low and claim 5’11” or 5’10”. The latter is a real downplay (and just as bad as inflating 2”) in my opinion but if you’re within the same range (5’11-5’11 3/4 perhaps) I don’t see the issue with it.

I will say this, through the years I was a voice asking for 5'9.25" Taylor Swift, 6'2.5" Dwayne Johnson, 6'1.5" Triple H, 5'9" Kendall jenner, who all got downgraded. I also think merriman is at best 6'3" but more 6'2.75" and that Hogan was absolute peak 6'5.5". There are alot more but the only times I have asked for an upgrade was

1. Liam neeson
2. Jared Padalecki.

I felt they both deserved 6'4.25", especially Neeson at peak.

As for Boris I can see why people at times think 6'3" range but next to guys like Kim Coates who Rob has met in person he does look his listing.

I can relate. At times that I have guessed below Rob’s listing, I’ve been called a downgrader and other times I’ve seen others called that for the same reason. This includes athletes who Rob even said before that “most” of their measured heights will not be their normal low let alone extreme low. I consider my “normal” low (not even extreme low) to be my true height both here on the site and outside of it. I can also agree with Rob regarding the approximate height after 5 hours of being (the apparent standard here) awake as I’ve always seen that it puts me only around 1/8” above a normal afternoon height. Of course I tend to preface mine with normal low but even then a normal low is closer to the 5 hours awake than a morning height.

I’ve also seen where people “consistently” guess every celeb 2” or 3” shorter than their perceived height or an inch or two or three taller than their claim or measured height, both of which fall into the category you mentioned. But the common sense approach, as it is most prevalent in society, most people will end up shorter than they claim than taller. I’ve really seen maybe 3-4 men over a lifetime claim shorter than they actually are and by shorter I mean an inch or more. Rounding down from 6’1.5 or 6’1.75” to 6’1” isn’t that extreme if we can accept someone else rounding up to 6’2” from 6’1.25 at a low all because they hit 6’2” or near it out of bed in the morning. It’s viewed in more of a negative light when they round down though which to me is ridiculous because it’s no different than a guy who is closer to 6’1” claiming 6’2”. However the ones I’ve seen truly downplay are guys that are several inches over 6’1” like 6’6+ or women who may hit 6’0 or 6’1 at a low and claim 5’11” or 5’10”. The latter is a real downplay (and just as bad as inflating 2”) in my opinion but if you’re within the same range (5’11-5’11 3/4 perhaps) I don’t see the issue with it.

Unfortunately, Johan, that's how many people STUPIDLY think on this site (not agreeing with their listing = downgrading or upgrading). I myself have been accused of downgrading celebrities more than once in the past, but in the end, that's just a pointless accusation, especially if you consider that I always back up what I say. That being said, there's no doubt there are some people who really like to downgrade/upgrade celebrities on here, though, needless to say, I'm pretty sure you aren't one of them.
As for Boris, Coates isn't the only person that both Rob and Boris have met. Here he is with (amongst others):
- 5'9.25 listed Casper Van Dien: Click Here
- 6'0.5 listed Wentworth Miller: Click Here
- 5'8 listed Moon Bloodgood: Click Here
Or with someone like Damien Woody, who was MEASURED at 6'3 1/8: Click Here
And since you mentioned them, I'd be less surprised if someone like Neeson dipped under 6'4 (at peak) than Boris. On the other hand, I think he could be very similar to someone like Jared (whom I could certainly see at 6'4.25 too). Speaking of which, here is Boris and Jared with the same guy: Click Here Click Here
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Sep/19
@Canson
Yeah, what Questioner said to Johan wasn't right. Johan claimed that only two of his estimates for celebs are higher than what Rob lists them as (Padalecki and Neeson). I'm certainly not gonna lose any sleep over Johan believing that Boris is a legit 6'4". I don't care if he believes Boris is 6'4.5" or even 6'5". As long as we can peacefully and politely disagree, that's all that matters.

@Andrea
If the under 6'3.5" estimates are "deluded", then why don't you apply the same standards to the 6'4.5"+ estimates? I've never seen you call out the 6'4.5"+ estimates but only the under 6'3.5" ones.

Are we really gonna go over this again? Rob deleted our recent comments toward each other for a reason. What part of my previous comment about how it's not a competition to see who's the best estimator is so controversial? I even defended you multiple times when Greg said that you should be banned permanently, and this is how you repay me?

@Canson
Excellent reply! Whether who's the best/worst estimator is all subjective, so it shouldn't be about competition. I don't mind people complimenting others on how good they believe they estimate heights, but all I'm saying is that don't make it a bigger deal than it is. Yet we have someone here (we all know who) who wants to twist my words out of context and resort to calling me names.
Andrea said on 10/Sep/19
I'm not sure Junior really thinks Boris is 6'3.25, Christian, but if he does, then yeah.
Even more so if you consider that, if I'm not mistaken, he thinks that Levi is at least 6'3.25 himself, when even a blind man could tell that there is a NOTICEABLE difference between them, next to someone like Rick Fox: Click Here Click Here
Canson said on 10/Sep/19
@Christian: I meant for Johan that he didn’t upgrade Boris or anyone on this page. I wasn’t clear though but I wasn’t attacking Questioner either. Just stating that he didn’t upgrade anyone. But yea I agree I don’t see Johan as an upgrader. Junior used to guess Boris 6’3.25, you’re right. But if it is said anything under 6’3.5 is deluded (even after Rob said “I can appreciate how he can look 6’3 at times”) then it means that The guesses of under 6’3.5 aren’t all that deluded. If that’s the case, then It can also be said that guesses of over that mark and especially over 6’4” are since he’s noticeably shorter than guys like Kobe Jordan joe brother etc. you Junior Viper and I aren’t the only ones who guessed him below that. Celebheights 6’1.5 and Dream also did and others who commented on the page.

I think what Questioner meant is that he believes Johan guesses celebs taller than what he guesses them as. I wouldn't call Johan an upgrader myself though. I've seen plenty of posters who do actually upgrade a lot of celebs.

@Andrea
So Junior's deluded for thinking that Boris is 6'3.25" then? Anyone who thinks Boris is anything under 6'3.5" is deluded, apparently.

His brother would have to be close to 6’7” for him to be “over 6’4” his brother is likely just 6’5-6’6 range to get a 6’7” basketball listing and that’s 2-3” between them as Rob said. Saying he’s 6’4 1/4” is just as deluded

@Junior
No offense, but this site isn't about competition to see who's the best estimator is.

@Christian: The opinion will also vary from one person to the next and a lot of times it’s based on all of the wrong reasons. It’s usually if that person agrees with the person’s estimates. I agree with many of your estimates and think you’re one of the best here and then there are some where we differ in opinion. Then again I agree with many of Rising’s estimates and disagree with some of the athletes but I still think he’s one of the best here. Berta also is a good poster like Junior says, even if I don’t agree with a some of Berta’s estimates. But my reasons are not just for your estimates. It’s the methods you both use in arriving at them. You use height charts and other details to back it up. Also, you and Rising will both admit when a picture is not the best even if it goes against your argument. But As I mentioned once, you all may not see it that way. You have both said before that you don’t strive to be that and that you don’t believe that you’re any better than anyone else nor do you believe in such a thing. And it’s also hard for many to say better or worse simply because we have all made good estimates and been right on the money but also have made questionable judgments before and been way out in left. At the end of the day, all three of you are humble about it.
Andrea said on 8/Sep/19
To say the least, Johan.
If you take a look at all the pics and clips I've posted, he constantly looks AT LEAST 6'4, with just about every celebrity. In fact, I'd say there's more chance he's 6'4 1/4 than 6'3 1/2. And useless to say, anyone who thinks he's even under 6'3.5... is just deluded!
Andrea said on 8/Sep/19
I don't think Junior ever said that, Christian. Though viper certainly implied that, when he said that he's better than me (LOL). And you didn't say a thing, of course. See what I mean when I say that you're one of the most inconsistent and hypocritical posters on here?
And the same goes for Joe, who just offered his very humble opinion. Just like you think that Johnson is not knowledgeable enough to open a height site, Joe thinks I'm one one of the best height estimators (btw, thanks Joe). I guess that things are an "opinion", only when it's convenient for you, huh?

@viper not to sound like a buttwhole but thats the first time you have talked in a pleasant tone with an estimate that is significantly off of robs or the majoritys. and it makes it a lot easier to take your estimates seriously. also I dont trust model agencies theyve listed 5'9" people at 6 foot and 6'1" people at 5'11.5"

@canson I didnt say you or christian were disrespectful I dont think I called anyone disrespectful I said andrea is a bit aggressive and could be interpreted as disrespectful at the same time it seems you were making a lot of questionable differences on pics. and I was moreso agreeing with andreas estimates than yours in this case. in the kobe pic I said its an inch an and half tops meaning moreso 1.25 just from what I see from the pic that means if what your saying is true we can stretch it to 1.5-75 but not 2. I think 6'3" flat is to low and below is impossible I think hes .25 min and .75 max definitely not 6'4" though he doesnt have that long look like a 6'4"+ does

@Viper: they listed him 6’2”. His own website listed him at 6’2.5. I can agree that 6’2” is too low and 6’2.5 in a lot of pics looks too low. He looks 6’3” to be honest. He doesn’t physically even look 6’4” in pictures. An example is the pic with his brother. my 6’6” friend doesn’t have that much height on me much less my 6’5.25 friend and he doesn’t physically look 6’4”. His brother looks more a strong 6’5” guy like Christian said. I can look at someone like a prime Liam Neeson or prime Hasselhoff or Padalecki and Boris does not look as tall they do. He looks more in line with someone like Zach Levi. His posture is very good compared to other guys his size though and he has favorable proportions which make him look taller. But Boris claiming to be 6’4” shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to any of us being most celebrities claim shoe heights and then some. He’s just claiming his shoes no extra at least. That should add up when his brother is also claiming to be 6’7” and that was his listed height in basketball and has 2-3” on Boris
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 22/Aug/19
@Rob
That wasn't my point though. I understand that a few basketball athletes may gain a bit of height since measuring, but Johnson inflated just about every measured basketball player under the guise of growth. And I bet he did that just to be consistent with the other celebs that he inflated. He has a right to his opinions at the end of the day, but someone like that shouldn't be taken seriously in the height community. If you're gonna launch your own height site, then at least be more knowledgeable about height, that's my point.
Editor Rob
Well, I do understand what you are saying, it's not like basketball players are being measured late afternoon or anything like that, so even some I'm giving a more positive listing if it's within 2-3 hours of wakening.

@Rob: the heights that Curry and some of the others measured are already morning heights. Beyond that is inflation. Like saying Curry is 189. Curry measured 6’2” early morning. Rose measured 6’1.5 so he wouldn’t be 189 unless directly out of bed

@Questioner
His brother Patrick was in that video, not Boris.

@Rob
While it's true that some people consider morning heights to be the true height, or even with shoes to be the true height (as dumb as that is) that's not the case with Johnson though. He claimed that basketball players and other athletes grew since being measured, and we all know that they're just excuses in order to justify inflating celebs. A person like that shouldn't be starting up their own height website IMO. Of course, Johnson has the right to do what he wants, but no one is gonna take him seriously.
Editor Rob
With NFL it would be more rare given average age of combine attendee, but with basketball, that measurement age is on average younger I believe, so maybe there is a small proportion who do put on height in 19-21 range.
viper said on 20/Aug/19
His modeling agency listed him at 6-2 so the sub 6-3 guesses arnt too outlandish.

He's obviously taller than 6-2 and we know modeling agencies downgrade height.
Canson said on 20/Aug/19
@Questioner: for the difference between Kobe and Boris, you’re right in that it may not be 2” in the pic at least. But I said it might be 3-3.5cm (minimum) before we account for the footwear. Kobe has on a 5/8” sneaker while Boris obviously has more footwear on. It may be as high as 4cm but if you look the picture isn’t the best. Christian pointed out the leg, also the hat. And I threw out 6’2.75 as a possibility if his brother is only 6’5” flat or 6’5.25 which him being a 6’7” listed college basketball player is entirely possible. I guess 192 is possible but that’s a bit shaky being you even just said Kobe was at most 1.5” taller. Kobe is only 6’4.75 and has a footwear disadvantage. Even if it’s only 1/8” as Rob suggests (he said Boris has on .7-.8”), that still puts Boris 6’3 1/8” or even if we said it’s only 1.25” as opposed to 1.5” difference with Kobe that’s 6’3 3/8” which is 191.5 cm roughly. I really see more than just 1.25 as does Christian, but it will vary from person to person of course. But assuming it’s max 1.5” that you implied, that likely means you even acknowledge that it’s in excess of 1” which is about the only way that Boris would still be 192cm once the footwear is accounted for. Rob said that the footwear is .7-.8” but it is difficult to see exactly what type of footwear he has on in the pic. Judging by the thickness of it, it appears to be 1”. But while we are on this topic, it was said to both Christian and me that “Rob said it was .7-.8 and that he knows more about footwear than we do” yet now Rob is “human” which is (verbatim) what Christian and I both said when we looked at the Boris/Kobe pic close to 2 years ago. My whole point is it can’t just be when it’s convenient. Thats an example of what Christian mentioned in his post to me a couple days ago below. We have never met Boris so we won’t know until we do. But from three others who claim to have 1st or 3rd party interactions we saw 190 from Bobby3342, 191 from Mr R, and 192 from Junior’s friend then an outlier at 188 (6’2) though I am not sure if that estimate or even interaction is as credible but then again we don’t know if the others have either.

I brought up the part about his brother around the 4th of July because he was on the radio with Boris and his wife; and his wife said that his brother, Patrick, is 3” taller than Boris. Now surely that doesn’t mean it’s a full 3” or even close, but looking at pics, it is possible and it’s at least 2” as it generally looks 2-3” like Rob also said. I’m going to assume that his wife was talking about their listed heights because his brother still claims 6’7” as he posted online that he is 6’7” 205 on his Instagram I believe. Having played basketball myself I know that a legit 6’7” guy at a low is not getting a 6’7” listing in the program. He’s at least gonna get listed 6’8” but more than likely 6’9” especially if the guy measures 6’7.5 or so earlier in the day. He’d be 6’9” in basketball sneaks at that stage. No different from me measuring 6’4.5-.75 in the morning and getting a 6’6” listing when I played. Im only about 6’4.25 in the afternoon and round down to 6’4” since I no longer play. Hell, Kevin Love is listed 6’10” and is said to be closer to 6’7” than 6’8” himself and he really at times looks no taller than Lebron. Not saying his brother isn’t maybe 6’6” but he doesn’t look it. He doesn’t look more than a strong 6’5” in terms of appearance, just like Christian estimated. Boris doesn’t look 6’4” in terms of appearance in my opinion. But for Patrick, a strong or even solid 6’5 at a low is the norm for a guy who measures 6’6” when they wake up and 6’5.5-.75 in the first 2-3hours of the day meaning he’d get to around 6’7” in shoes

@Questioner: I have him right at 6’3” just as Christian does. I threw 6’2.75 out there just as I did 6’3.25”. And I do agree that you are a very respectful poster. In the last few posts that I’ve made here, I actually have never even mentioned anybody’s name nor did I say anything about Andrea being disrespectful? Andrea is a He by the way, not a she. But look at his argument with Christian below. As far as respectful and disrespectful, I’m not going to comment on whether that is or not but I surely wouldn’t just tell someone that they do not know about height differences as has been told to me in the past as well, just because the poster doesn’t agree with me. You can judge the rest from there. Currently I’m not even arguing with Andrea as far as I see it
Canson said on 19/Aug/19
@Rob: height knowledge as far as differences is one thing but when you estimate someone else based on a guy who you think is 5’8” and is really 5’7” is another. I mean Derrick Rose at 189? Melo at 200? Lebron at 203? Kobe at 196.5? Jordan 196.5? All of those guys measured less than that and there’s a fair chance that some of the measurements were not even at their normal lows. Kobe I believe and Rose probably 186-186.5 Lebron probably is near enough 6’7”
Editor Rob
I am sure there are some people who are thinking of heights as morning, or shoes at times, but on this site I'm trying to think barefoot and having been up a few hours at least.
Canson said on 19/Aug/19
@Rob: yea but when all of his estimates are above pre drafts (which are already in the morning) and he insists every player grew, something is wrong. He’s entitled to his opinion but that doesn’t mean he makes good guesses. He even insisted Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose grew when two of us here have met them and they look the same as they were (at best) when they drafted. There are plenty of others too

@canson While I cant read your mind I do think I have been a very respectful poster to you in the bit over a month I have been on this site. I looked through your arguments with andrea and while andrea is frankly way to aggressive im not sure I would call her disrespectful. these are all just estimates (though I do have to say in the kobe pic specifically no way that is 2 inches thats 1.5 tops) he does look 4 or near than magic though. I doubt boris is the full 6'4" after seeing this video on his instagram: Click Here
I think hes only 192 and I can see the argument for 191. but im sorry the sub 6'3" guesses are ridiculous and I think ive shown im not an inflator as pretty much all my posts if anything have downgraded a lot of people significantly even in comparison to your estimates.

Even though... I respect you a lot but just because you have a good knowledge about footwear doesn't mean you're always right, you are human, not perfect (I respect you though)!!! 😊

Editor Rob
Yeah, I am always attempting to improve knowledge for this site and reduce errors! And on the odd occasion impart a little knowledge now and again, for instance about angles...those are tricky subjects.

Sometimes it is not obvious in a photo that a photographer is standing on one side because the background is uniform...check out a recent Full Length photo with an actress.

If it was landscape or 3/4 portrait length, I doubt many could tell the photographer wasn't standing centrally. The photographer is more on actress side and so when pointing the camera at us the backdrop and cross marks run at a bit of an angle, showing the camera is on the right side (as it looks at us) of the subjects.

Here is another full length shot With Gemma Whelan, in which the photographer (different person) is facing us a bit more straight on....and there's 3 inches in height difference between those 2 ladies in person.
Andrea said on 17/Aug/19
Footwear only matters when there is a footwear difference, Christian. And IF Boris is the one who has the advantage, I have no problem to "admit" it.
And the same goes for camera angles. But then again, at this stage, I doubt it is something you will ever grasp. Trying to explain them to you is like trying to explain colors to a blind man. Obviously.
Canson said on 17/Aug/19
@Rob: i agree with you that the appearance and also the depth or thickness of the footwear will vary from one person to the next. All I was saying is that there seems to be inconsistencies. In the case that you brought up below in your example with the Vans about a different poster, I think that’s lack of knowledge on his part or more knowledge on yours as the estimates for that poster are not usually very good (they’re often times inflated).
Editor Rob
To be fair, Johnson is a long-term fan, enough of a height enthusiast that he made his own site a couple of years back so he does have height knowledge, maybe not quite on new vans/well-worn sb though 😊...

I'm sure there are at least 5 visitors over the years who took inspiration from celebheights to make their own type of measurement site 👍 Arjen (Poker Portal) was probably the first, who after posting on CelebHeights for a couple of yearse made TheTallestMan in 2009, it lasted 10 years which is a good run for a website.

This site hits 15 end of September, and I'm still learning about height, and footwear 😎

In fact, watch out for a Vans video measurement on youtube today (this comment I'm typing on Monday morning). I picked up a pair, made a clip, then actually wore them in 2 photos. Talk about fresh 😄
Canson said on 16/Aug/19
@Christian: We have both brought up footwear differences in the past that actually do exist and we have been told that there is no advantage/disadvantage or that “Rob said there is no footwear difference” or “Rob said that the shoes are similar” and we are always reminded that Rob knows more about footwear than we do and that Rob knows more about height differences than we do. It’s always been the case when it’s advantageous but it wasn’t this time so Rob was even being challenged here about his opinion/assessment on Patrick/Boris.
Editor Rob
It's true some footwear can be seen at different thicknesses by various people and in many cases you or I would be offering an opinion, which is no guarantee of correctness.

But if you build up enough knowledge, you'd hope to at least narrow the range of an estimate on footwear you haven't measured. That's something I'm always trying to improve on for this site, adding to my knowledge of footwear, especially since a lot of the time we're discussing or arguing 1/4 inch differences.

I'm sure you have a fair amount of knowledge as do many readers on footwear, but we all can improve.

For instance, I remember on Richard Rankin's page you said "rob’s Footwear advantage gives some of that back", and Johnson (another Height Webmaster like myself): "he [richard] is wearing Vans with disadvantage possibly of 0.5 cm"

I replied on September 16th to Johnson saying my Nikes are 1.3-1.4cm and that vans when reasonably new give 1.6cm range. It was well over a decade since I last wore Vans, but I remember after a fair bit of wear I measured them near 1.5cm. They might in fact give close to 1.7cm out the box, but I will go out today and buy another pair of classic slip-ons and double check 😂

Anyway, I uploaded that old Nike SB measurement taken on September 16th, just to show that when I give figures like that, I'm speaking from knowledge, having just measured them that day to double check their height.

@Canson
I agree with you a 1000 percent. Footwear only matters to Andrea when it goes against his narrative, just like camera angles.

@Andrea
Are you honestly comparing the Merriman and Jones pic with the Boris and Patrick pic, as if both are equally bad camera wise? The latter pic is WAY worse than the former. And it's not about "mathematical procedures". You can estimate camera advantages by eyesight alone. If you picture in your mind that Merriman and Jones stood equidistant from the camera, Merriman would look only roughly a half inch taller. But all that is negated by Jones' poorer posture anyway.
Canson said on 12/Aug/19
@Christian: two more pics of he and his brother. Even seeing these a bit differently the difference remains the same as it was in other pics

Andrea said on 11/Aug/19
So you're aware of how camera advantages/disadvantages work, yet not only you compare two different kind of shots, but you also say that "there's nothing "low" about that Merriman/Jones pic"? LOL, Christian. As I said, the camera is lower AND on Jones' side, so there's a big difference between the two pics. Also, would you mind explaining the mathematical procedure that leads you to say that "that doesn't give Jon more than a half inch advantage"? LMFAO
Speaking of camera advantages, here's a photo where Boris looks taller than Patrick: Click Here . Of course, unlike you, I would never post a photo like that to prove anything because I'm well aware that the camera being totally on the left side gives Boris a noticeable advantage. And certainly more than just half an inch... :-)
Canson said on 11/Aug/19
@Christian: I don’t even think it’s different reasons. I think it’s because we all know that Patrick is probably not 6’7” and probably not even 6’6” so, instead there is a diminished height difference between He and Boris and the footwear is now a factor. Boris and Patrick have the exact same style shoe in the picture that you posted. However, in one of the pics I posted (the one with just them), Boris has a footwear advantage. His shoes are thicker than Patrick’s and it’s still a comfortable 2+”. If there is a difference that can be seen there, I don’t know why that difference was never brought up in the pics with Boris/Kobe and Boris/Cena when Boris has a footwear advantage over both, and why it’s only brought up with people in pics where the height difference is more pronounced such as with Barkley/Boris and Patrick/Boris and Boris looks below his listing. The pic with Kobe and Boris does not clearly show the difference (as we can all see) as the pics with the other guys that I mentioned. In addition, Rob didn’t believe that Boris had more than 3/4” footwear on which is still 1/8” more and that was gospel yet the difference that Rob sees as 2-3” is not all of a sudden. Based on that, some guys that are listed 6’7” May end up 6’6” flat at a low but often those guys get 6’8” listings especially in College. So a 6’5 range guy is possible. While I can’t completely rule out 192cm at this stage because he can look it with Djimon and Omar assuming both guys are accurately listed, I never really took that seriously. Remember that it was said that the difference between he and Kobe is 3cm. Meaning a 6’4.75 guy would make Boris 6’3.5 minus the footwear which Rob says is .7-.8” making Boris around 191.5 since Kobe is in a 5/8” canvas shoe. I could see 3cm but other factors such as the hat and the knee. It could be more than that but I’ll go ahead and just say 3-3.5 min and that he’s maybe 6’3.25 in the pic as Junior said previously and as Mr.R guessed him when he claimed to have met him.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Aug/19
Of course I'm aware that camera advantages/disadvantages aren't only about distance. But there's nothing "low" about that Merriman/Jones pic, at least not to the degree to where it affects how they look. I'm aware that Jones is a bit closer to the camera than Merriman is, but that doesn't give Jon more than a half inch advantage. Not to mention, Jones has looser posture, so that pretty much negates any camera advantage Jones has on Merriman. Click Here
As for Patrick, at least I'm glad that we can both agree on him being 6'5.5" range, although we have different reasons for why we believe that he is.
viper said on 10/Aug/19
Since his brother looks 2-3 inches taller, Id say his brother is 6-5.5 and Boris is 6-3
viper said on 10/Aug/19
For some reason 6-1 3/8 measured Marcus Allen can look taller than Eric Dickerson
Canson said on 10/Aug/19
Based on the 6’7” listing he had playing Basketball, I wouldn’t put Patrick over 6’6” barefoot and really he looks 6’5” range in terms of proportions. Maybe 6’3.25 vs 6’5.5 but not any higher. In fact, Bobby3342’s estimate of 6’2.75 I still don’t completely rule out
Canson said on 10/Aug/19
Footwear advantage? Boris and Patrick have the exact same style shoe on in the picture that Christian posted. Both are wearing a 1” sneaker. However, while we are on the topic of footwear advantages, let’s discuss the first picture that I posted below where Boris (brown shoe) has the thicker shoe on than Patrick (black shoe). That’s clear as day. Meaning Patrick actually would have even more on him if they were even or barefoot. In the second pic, it can look more 3” but let’s stick to 2-3” since that’s how they look in the pics where they’re closer together and because we can’t see footwear in the 2nd picture. Boris also had a clear footwear advantage on Kobe in their pic being Kobe is wearing a canvas shoe which Rob said, and we’ve measured before, at 5/8”. Even if we were to say that the shoe that Boris has on is .7-.8” (the shoe looks more like a full inch but we can’t see the bottom of it very well), it’s still a footwear advantage on Boris’s part. That was completely disregarded and ignored though in that picture despite the fact that Boris having a footwear advantage on Kobe was a fact there even if it’s only by 1/8” or 1/4”. However, In the pic that Christian posted, we can clearly see the entire shoe for both of them. That is around a 6cm difference between the two in that picture that Christian posted is still around 2.25” like Christian said if Patrick really were to have a footwear advantage over Boris which he doesn’t. Either way, all three pictures show a 2-3” difference (Rob has already commented on 2 of the 3 pictures posted below and said it looked 2-3” in both and in most pictures of the two, and he’s supposed to be the “height expert here” and knows more than the posters here, according to some people, at least when it’s convenient he is). Rob didn’t say anything about 1-2” anywhere. I thought Rob was supposed to have more knowledge about height and footwear than everyone else here? That was told to us previously so not sure why it’s being challenged now. He said that it’s 2” on occasion and 2-3” on others.

Oh God, Christian! If you knew something about camera advantages (and just the fact that you compare Jones' pic with Djimon's clearly proves you don't), you would know that they're not all about being closer/further. The camera position also plays a fundamental role. Unlike that picture with Djimon, in fact, in Jones' case, the camera is lower AND on Jones' side, so he's going to get a noticeable advantage over Merriman there.
As for Patrick, I agree that he can look 2-2.5 inches taller than Boris in that pic (albeit with more footwear). Maybe Boris at 6'3 and Patrick at 6'5.25 isn't that impossible... if we're going to lower just about every celebrity Boris has appeared with by AT LEAST one inch, of course! 🙂

@Christian: while this doesn’t carry a lot of weight, Patrick is speculated to be 6’5” here on this site. He was listed 6’7” but we can all agree that he clearly isn’t that tall and he was a basketball player so I doubt he actually is his listed height

Click Here
Canson said on 9/Aug/19
@Christian: it’s the same thing with the pic with Boris/Djimon and Boris/Patrick. Patrick, at least, appears to have slightly more height on Boris than Boris has on Djimon. I have seen pics where it’s less than 2” between Boris and Patrick but those pics aren’t nearly as good as the two I posted as one of them always has their head tilted in the pics where the difference was less, and especially the one you just posted which is clear as day a 6cm difference between the two whereas Boris has a solid 2” on Djimon. Looking at the pics, Boris does not physically look like a 6’4” guy but his brother looks like he’s 6’5” range not 6’6 or 6’7
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/19
I agree more with Rob and Canson than I do with Andrea. While 3" is too much, Patrick may be anywhere from 2"-2.5" taller than Boris, but 2.25" may be the sweet spot, as suggested by this pic Click Here I see Boris at 6'3" and Patrick at 6'5.25"
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Aug/19
@Andrea
Yet on Merriman's page, you were making it seem as if camera advantages are such a big deal, when you were responding to my comment about the Merriman/Jon Jones pics. Yet you seem to downplay the camera advantage that Boris has in the pic with Djimon, when clearly Boris had more advantage with Djimon, than Jones did with Shawne. So I guess camera advantages are only a big deal when it's convenient for you.

That’s definitely over 2” between he and his brother in both pictures. While maybe not a full 3”, it’s definitely over a flat 2” in both. Rob even said below that He looks more than a flat 2” taller in some pictures of the two and that was a direct response to one of those two. I agree that in some it could appear less but The first picture that was posted is similar to that picture of Boris and Magic Johnson in terms of angles etc so if Magic really is as much as 3.5” or 4” taller (which was said when the pic was posted a couple years ago) then Patrick would easily be over 2” taller than boris in this picture. The second picture Patrick is clearly close to 3” taller. That is too much for a 2” difference. But The argument here isn’t whether or not his brother is 6’7” since that’s a listed height when he played basketball in college at VCU. We figure that he probably isn’t 6’7” barefoot because almost all NCAA players aren’t as tall as they’re listed in the program. But that also means that Boris likely isn’t 6’4”, either. It could also be that his brother is 6’5-6’6” which is likelier and that Boris is 6’3” range. That’s the likeliest scenario. 6’6 and 6’4 aren’t out of the question but neither is 6’3” and 6’5.5 or 6’3.5 and 6’6” or even 6’2.5 and 6’5” since many listed 6’7” basketball players end up as low as 6’5” range barefoot or at best 6’6”. I would say the 6’2.5 and 6’5 are unlikely but until we measure both guys it’s a possibility. As for Boris and Djimon, that’s at best a 2” difference all things considered so if going off listings, Boris would be at best 6’3.5” if Djimon is 6’1.5” like Rob lists him. That is less of a difference with Djimon than Boris’s brother has on him Above. Omar benson Miller also has a 2” on him in the picture below and he isn’t 2” taller than JB Smoove. Boris looks again at best 6’3.5” in both

Andrea said on 6/Aug/19
The camera isn't low there, Christian, (why do you think Michael Jai White still looks shorter than Djimon, despite being, in his case, way much closer to the camera???), so I can't see how "Djimon has a disadvantage.". All thing considered (which includes some clear tilt in Djimon's favor), it certainly doesn't look any less than 2.5 inches between them.
As for his brother, I have yet to see a picture where he looks anything more than 2 inches taller, so I'd be surprised if he was more than 6'6 (let alone his 6'7 claim), IF Boris is only 6'4 flat.
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
@Christian: with an aged Eric Dickerson who may still be 6’2 at this stage or not (combine was only 6’2.25), Boris looked around 6’3” . If Dickerson measured 6’2.25 at the combine not sure how tall he actually is at a low or what he is today

Accounting for Harvey’s tilt, that would be about a 4” difference. I don’t know how tall Harvey was in his prime. I can believe 6’0” plus back then but not now, but I’m hard pressed to see above 5’11.5-5’11.75 today next to him or next to barkley

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Aug/19
@Andrea
That's not more than 2 inches. Djimon's standing further away from the camera than Boris is, so Djimon has a disadvantage.
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
He looks 6’3.5 with Hounsou and Omar assuming there 6’1.5 and 6’5.5” listings are correct. And if his brother is 6’5/6’6 range he also looks max 6’3.5
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Christian and Rob: my guess is next to his brother who was a college listed 6’7” that he’s 6’3” range. My max for him is 191. Minimum could be 190 but I’ll stick to 6’3” flat as the sweet spot. Because His brother isn’t more than 6’5.5 or 6’6” if he got a 6’7 basketball listing
Andrea said on 4/Aug/19
You mean "anywhere from 1 to 2 range taller", Rob? I don't know which pictures you have seen, but his brother never looks as much as 3 inches taller, from what I've seen. More like 2 inches at most, and sometimes not much more than an inch actually.
Btw, even with Djimon and Omar, he looks MINIMUM 6'4!
Editor Rob
anywhere between 2-3 range I think seemed possible, though 2 inches at times can seem likely.

@Rob: his wife said his brother was 3” taller than him on the radio. His brother was only “listed” 6’7” when he played basketball at VCU so fair chance he’s not. Do you see a full 3” between them or is it that his wife is going by what both brothers claim? It’s very possible that both are claiming shoe heights which I’ve always believed for Boris. Maybe he’s not 6’2.5-.75 like some guys who claim 6’4” but 6’3 I still believe
Editor Rob
His brother can seem anywhere from 2 to 3 range taller
Canson said on 30/Jul/19
@Christian: also Omar has at least 2” on him. I think 6’3.25 is best case but 6’3 is still good imho. However, Rob would make a good start lowering him to 6’3.5 as he’s clearly not more than that if Omar is 6’5.5. It could be more but Boris has a hat on. And That’s assuming Omar is really that tall as well. Omar could be a bit less for his low. Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s just 6’5.25

@Viper: I could see Reynolds being 6’1 7/8 or even 6’2” flat if he said 6’1-6’2 but he’s definitely not 6’2.5. Junior seeing him from a distance is just like me seeing Merriman at the game and just taking his listed height at face value. Not seeing him from that close a distance and not looking at footwear nor did I really even pay much attention to his height to where I tried to figure out how tall he was. I would just assume he was his listed height. Rob listing Reynolds 6’2 is very much consistent with the rest of the site as most celebs here are around half inch taller than listed some even more. It’s rare that someone will say that they’re shorter than the are in Hollywood usually the other way around.
Canson said on 27/Jul/19
@Christian: I think 192 is too high. He doesn’t stand up to that with Kobe or Barkley who is less than Kove today. Honestly 6’3 looks good still best case 191. Absolute best

Andrea said on 26/Jul/19
Provided that, as I have already said many times before, "meetings" really prove NOTHING to me, I highly doubt Reynolds is as tall as 6'2.5, Junior! I can see how he can pass for over 6'2 at times, but overall I'd expect him to measure somewhere around 6'2 flat. Possibly a fraction under, but not as low as say 6'1.5, which is about as improbable as 6'2.5, IMO.
In the same way, I doubt Boris would be any shorter than Momoa. In fact, if anything, I'd say he has much more chance of being a full 6'4 than Momoa (and the majority of celebrities that are listed at 6'4 on here)!

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Jul/19
@Andrea You did be surprise i hoping one day you get the chance to meet Reynolds in real you will believe me. He isn't flat 6'2 but 6'2.5" is the worst he will be measure unlike Ben Affleck a flat 6'2 listed at 6'2.5" and 6'2.25" both times. Atually i met Reynolds in Vancouver airport three years back but i wasn't able to walk close to him where there is three body guard and lots of fan girls surrounded his side, i'm like less than 25-30 meters away from the distance i see him, my wife and i both estimate he look betweeen 6'2-6'3 if he barefoot and he look to be 192cm in nike sneakers and over 6'4 a hair. That is why i never bring up this because i haven't got the chance walk close to him to have a more accurate judgement. My cousin is really not under 187.5cm and he did tell me its 2cm when he walk close to him although they're both in converse chucks but there is chance Reynolds wear extra flat insoles slide in his converse maybe gain a fraction we don't know that and the 2cnd time he met Reynolds again this time Reynolds had more footwear leather boots which is near 1.5" looking heels and my cousin had Sketchers running shoes about 3cm when he say this time he look to be easily full inch taller than him. From his statement is not confuse at all. That would mean he is only 189cm at his low because my cousin lowest is 187.5cm.
My 6'0 friend is listed 6'1 in his basketball team during college but his an honest person that is what he measure in shoes and 6'0 barefoot he have met many celebrities which he opposed Rob listed most of them quite accurate within 1/4 inch maybe too high. He recently met Jason Momoa up close and had mention he is really 6'4 or worst just small fraction under and he met Kodjoe up close he described him to be 192cm when standing tall but 6'3-ish when he is loose in posture but def not 6'4.

@Junior: that means that Dwayne Wade is not over 6’3” and maybe less. Boris is taller than him. Wade really looks 190 max. I could give Boris 191 now but I still struggle with seeing 192. Kobe has too much on him and so does Barkley. A guy who is 6’3.25 and 6’3.5 could be hard to differentiate from someone who is 3” shorter or even very close in height.
Canson said on 13/Jul/19
@Junior: It’s even harder to tell now. His brother was only listed 6’7” on the basketball roster meaning max he would be is 6’6” perhaps 6’5” range. I don’t see 3” in every pic of them but I do in some. I could see an argument that Bobby3342 made for 6’2.5-6’3 based on that listing of his brother or possibly 191-192 if it’s only a 2” difference like it appears in some pics. I could also see the argument that Mr.R made for 191cm but I’ve never seen him taller than that. But He never looks 6’4” with guys like Kobe however which is why I rule out 193.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jul/19

Though he doesn't look anywhere near that with Boris. More like 6'5-6'6... if Boris is just 6'4 of course. 😉
Canson said on 8/Jul/19
@Viper: they didn’t say how tall either of them is. However, I did search and his name is Patrick khodjoe. He was only listed 6’7” as a college basketball player so that is almost certain that he’s not that barefoot. That’s likely a shoe height meaning Boris’s is as well as we’ve both said the entire time. I’ve seen some sites say 6’3.5 as well.
viper said on 7/Jul/19
How tall is his brother
Canson said on 5/Jul/19
I was listening to him on Sirius XM and he his brother and wife are on at Essence and his wife said he is 3” shorter than his brother
Canson said on 16/May/19
@Viper: Boris looks a lot more like OJ than Cuba imho
viper said on 16/May/19
Did you see it Canson. Maybe the best cable TV series of it's kind.

Though Cuba Gooding did not look like OJ at all.

At least Boris is closer to the height and frame.
viper said on 13/May/19
Don't know how they can top the OJ TV series. That was amazing
Canson said on 9/May/19
I saw some pics of him in the upcoming OJ movie. I was shocked that he could pull off the look lol

@Canson
I'm not familiar with Duane or Lisaraye so I can't really say, sorry.
Canson said on 17/Apr/19
Duane Martin called him 6’5 there to which Boris responded back sarcastically
Canson said on 15/Apr/19
Martin is listed 5’10” which he often looks
Canson said on 15/Apr/19
@Viper @Christian: are you familiar with Duane Martin? How tall would you say he is? There are some pics with Will Smith etc. how tall would you say Boris looks with Duane Martin and Lisaraye who is 5’6”?

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Mar/19
I don't bother what people think of Boris height. To me he look at least 6'3 1/2. Maybe not 6'4 but had a chance being 6'3 3/4.
Andrea said on 18/Feb/19
LOL, I know, Tunman. To be honest, I hadn't even seen that much of him before, but certainly enough to conclude that he had to be at least 6'4, give or take a fraction. And just about every other picture I found/find is just a further confirmation of that. Speaking of Haysbert, there was another pic of them together I posted, whose link seems to no longer work in the list below: Click Here . In that pic it is even harder to believe that Dennis is anywhere near 6'4, if Boris is only 6'4 himself, yeah.
And as I said, although they weren't officially measured, you can see Boris with guys like Kim Coates, Wentworth Miller, Rick Fox and Casper Van Dien in fact, whom Rob all met (so I doubt they're going to be overlisted by more than a fraction). Especially with Kim Coates Click Here , not only Boris looks at least 6'4 with him, but if Boris is only 6'4 flat, I still have a hard time believing Kim is a full 6', to be honest. Yet Rob met him and said that he isn't far off that mark...
And you're perfectly right about Google. Unless a figure comes from a celebrity's mouth or agency, I don't even take into consideration those kind of listings, as most of the time they're just random guesses/figures which get copied from site to site, without any kind of logic behind it. Speaking of Google, I've seen some awful listings throughout the years, even amongst Italian celebrities. Not only celebrities listed way taller than they are, but even celebrities listed way shorter than they are, even when the celebrities themselves claim to be a totally different mark!
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Christian: I think you and Andrea both made cases here to be fair. But I agree that proof is a very subjective word and I’ve seen on other pages where debates have been as heated as it got here with all of us that pics are said to be proof when in reality I’m sure very few of the pics here on this site are what we call perfection
Canson said on 17/Feb/19
@Tunman: I’ve seen 6’2 6’2.5 6’3 and the 192cm listing along with 6’4”. The 6’4” didn’t come about until he claimed it however
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Feb/19
@Tunman
Those 26 pics that Andrea provided isn't "proof" that Boris is 6'4". I've provided around just as many photos of him looking way under 6'4", but that isn't "proof" either. Wish people would quit throwing around terms like "proof" when there are no recorded measurements of a celeb or haven't even met them in person.
Tunman said on 16/Feb/19
@Andrea
Yeah,I just noticed you posted the pic.Lol,there was no need to show 26 pics to prove he's a honest enough 6'4.With someone like Heysbert he could even look 6'4.5" which means Dennis is likely under his current listing.The same goes with Rick Fox where as you said he could look no more than 1.5"smaller but again 6'6 for Fox is very questionable.It would be interesting to have at least one celebrity being officially measured every time we make a comparison it would be very helpful.Kobe's measurement is at least one you can't argue he's under(actually he even looks over it almost all the time but then why did he insist he's not 6'5?)He's among the few celebs with whom Boris looked more 192.Funnily Google has Boris at 192 but don't think it's the reason why I'm trying to argue over the mark.A source giving Bieber 175 is hardly serious...
Canson said on 16/Feb/19
One thing I will say is that even if I don’t necessarily agree on his listing here, this listing is a lot better than Merriman’s who in that video when he’s shoeless, looks no taller than 6’2” range
Andrea said on 15/Feb/19
Tunman, I myself did post that pic with Boateng, if you take a look at my older comments... If Boateng is 190, I can see Boris anywhere between 192 and 193 there, no less no more. As for Casper, the absolute minimum I can see between them is 6.5 inches, but to be honest, I would have said it overall looked very close to 7 inches in the clip.
That being said, as I've always said, 192 isn't impossible (or absurd), but anything under that certainly is. In fact, even at 192, if he really was as low as that, that would mean that basically every celebrity that appeared with him should be downgraded by a visible amount (and some already should be, if he's only 6'4 flat). And again, I still have a hard time believing that the majority of celebrities listed at 6'4 or even over on here would be as tall as him. Let alone taller!
Canson said on 24/Jan/19
@Rising: yea it’s tough to say for him. Maybe he’s a bit less if that’s his combine measurement but not sure how much less. maybe it wasn’t early morning and was late morning instead. At that case he may be 6’0.25 or worst case 6’ 1/8
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Jan/19
Yeah, Boris looks about 2 cm taller than Boateng, though I don't know how tall he actually is since he also has 191, 192 and 193 cm listings. 6'3.5" isn't unreasonable, but it's the absolute lowest I'd go. He definitely looked more than just 6" taller than Casper Van Dien, imo. @Canson: I agree Lewis seems about 6'0 3/8" legit.
Canson said on 16/Jan/19
@Viper: I could buy that perhaps. Odd that he was listed 6’2.5 before tho. But I’d be more likely to cap my max at 191 6’3.25 based on the overall perception from the pics
viper said on 14/Jan/19
6-3.5 is the absolute most I could buy for Boris
184guy2 said on 14/Jan/19
@Tunman
Good find . Boateng is generally listed 6'4 but he is nearer 6'3 . Probably 6'3 on the dot , like Matt Hummels , shorter than Neuer

Boris looks at least 2cm taller in there . Can't see Boris under 6'3.75
Tunman said on 8/Jan/19
Take a look at this,I think 192 can't be completely ruled out.
Click Here
Boateng is listed at 190 which is probably more likely than 192.
Now have a look at him with BorisClick Here:
Maybe 3/4"difference but no more.
I feel that Rob sometimes gives the benefit of doubt to some actors that's why a near enough 6'4 could look even over the mark.One thing is sure though,6'3 flat is definitely ruled out
@Andrea
I watched the scene with Casper once again.While at one point he could have pushed even near 194 I still feel 192,5 isn't completely absurd for Boris if you stop at 27sec
Canson said on 15/Dec/18
@Rising: I was actually speaking to you not Viper. My bad
Canson said on 14/Dec/18
@Viper: after more comparisons that seems right for Ray’s measurement. I just don’t know if it’s as early as the players these days so maybe he’s around that or worst case 6’.25
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Dec/18
@Canson: Yeah, I'm pretty sure I remember him claiming that as well.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Rising: I remember maybe 20-25 years ago he had a special on that show Ahmad Rashad used to do where he said that he was always listed 6’5 but that he was really 6’2”. Then I saw another article about him where he admitted it in his “My Life”
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Dec/18
@Canson: Yeah, I met Starks at an event a few years after his playing career and he didn't stand out the way even an average height NBA player does so I also figured he was about 6'2". The 6'5" listings were among the most ridiculous NBA listings and even the other 6'3" listings you see were probably around his height in shoes. As for Lewis, he looks taller than just 6'0" to me. He didn't seem like he'd be any shorter than Trump and I don't see Trump shorter than 6'0.5" today, though 6'0 3/8" would be the same thing.
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Rising: I could be wrong about the footwear. At one point Melo’s shoes looked huge. Maybe the heal is similar between them
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Rising: Ray next to Flacco he looks 6’0” at times assuming Joe is a full 6’6”. Considering where he measured I would say he’s close to it worst case 6’5 7/8 maybe. He can look a bit over too sometimes.
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Rising: appears the first link didn’t work properly. In the 2nd link I see over 1” but the third link he looks as if he’s at a footwear disadvantage with Melo. Melo appears to be in a thicker shoe now that I look closely. The last pic he looks 6’4 range but never a flat 6’4”. The lowest I could possibly call him is 6’4.5 but honestly could he just 3cm with he and Melo so maybe 6’4.5 up to a full 6’5 as he can look a full 6’5 at times. With Starks he can look around 6’5 or 6’4.75. Not sure if Starks is a full 6’2? Did you meet him? A buddy of mine did and said he was and he looked around that in their pic. Maybe lost height today. Btw how tall would you say Rolando Blackman was? Didn’t minke if you saw him or knew anyone who had when he played in NY. I have him as a strong 6’5 perhaps 6’5.25ish
Rising - 174 cm said on 27/Nov/18
@Andrea: I agree assuming Ray is taller than just 6'0" flat, Boris can still look around 6'4" there, but there's more guessing involved due to the hat. I agree Boris could be dropping some height with the much shorter Usher, I'm just commenting on how he looks in that photo. I did mean to mention the grass with Bishop. Mutombo is kind of tricky because of head size. I can't disagree with much you said, though. There are other group photos with Levy as you mention where Boris looks much taller.

@Canson: Good photos with Melo and Houston. Houston actually looks a full 6'5" in the first 2, but more 6'4" range in the last 2.
Andrea said on 26/Nov/18
To be honest, Rising, if Ray is about 6'0.5, Boris doesn't look less than 6'4 with him there, considering that Ray's top of head isn't much above Boris' eyebrows (and that there's even some tilt in Ray's favor). With Usher I agree that he looks nowhere near 6'4 in that pic, but 1) I'm not sure Boris is standing as tall as he can there and 2) there was another pic of them together (which I can't find atm) from the same event where Boris looked noticeably taller than that, and easily near 6'4. Plus, Usher does have some decent footwear advantage over Boris in those pics: Click Here . With Bishop he certainly doesn't look much over 6'3 there, but again, it's an outside photo ON THE GRASS, which means that there's always a chance the ground is uneven, so it's hardly a conclusive photo. With Levy there he doesn't look over 6'2-6'3, but that is certainly not surprising as Boris is standing clearly further away from the camera. There are many other photos where Boris easily looks 6'4, if Levy is 5'11.25. As for Ken Jeong and Kevin Hart, I always find it hard to draw any conclusions from comparisons between people that are so far apart height-wise, also because, as you said, it's totally understandable that the taller guy doesn't stand at his fullest next to the shorter one (unless we're talking about certain celebrities such as Vin Diesel, who would probably have an impeccable posture even next to someone like Peter Dinklage). With Mutombo, if anything, I'd say that he can even look over 6'4 there, given that the difference between them doesn't look over 8-9 inches in that photo. As for Houston, it's pretty much impossible to tell the actual difference between him and Boris from that pic as not only it's shot from a quite low angle, but it also seems to favor Houston's side and position quite a bit.
Canson said on 26/Nov/18
@Tall Sam: he could actually be similar with Conan. I have Conan as a strong 6’3” more than weak 6’4 (6’3.25 ish)
Canson said on 25/Nov/18
@Rising: if Ray measured 6’0 3/8 then he may he as low as 6’0” at an afternoon height.
Canson said on 25/Nov/18
@Rising: meant to say much more than 6’5
Andrea said on 24/Nov/18
And there you go again, Christian, accusing me of making "excuses", just because you don't understand what I'm talking about, and you obviously aren't even able to distinguish good photos from bad photos. And you wonder and cry about why I say that you have no clue about camera angles/positions/etc. (other than height differences of course)? Hell, every further comment of yours does nothing but confirm that.
Canson said on 24/Nov/18
@Rising: I think he’d edge Sprewell too. I would put Sprewell lower than I am and Houston taller. I will say that Carmelo has a chance at 6’6.25 just as he does 6’6” flat or somewhere in the middle. He definitely doesn’t look less than 6’6” imho. But with Melo, Houston doesn’t look less more than 6’5” imho. I could actually see him as 6’4.75 at a low to be honest. I saw a couple references to that measurement but nothing concrete I don’t believe

I met Allan Houston around 2000. I can't say exactly from my height and a memory years ago and what I do remember is his height stands out noticeably more in person than a 6'4" man. I'd think more 6'5"+, but all I can say with certainty is he's taller in person than Sprewell and a lot taller than John Starks. I didn't remember Houston having a pre-draft measurement or at least not one reported.
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Nov/18
I've commented on Isner, Dirk, Foxx, Akon and Roddick so I'll focus on the others. I thought Ray Lewis was 6'0 5/8"? Typically, .4 compared to say .75 as 3/4" would be more like 3/8", but some of those NFL draft sites are confusing in that they usually seem to go in 1/8" increments and then shorten it. Either way, I'm not sure if Boris is a full 6'4" with him, but I'm not sure he looks far from it either. Tough to say exactly because Boris is wearing a hat, but Ray is just above Boris' eyebrows so I think Boris still looks at least 192 range there. I agree Usher reaches noticeably higher on Boris than 5'8" usually would on 6'4". Bishop is tough to say because they both have hats. I'd agree there's not a 2" difference in that particular picture, but definitely not less than 1", imo. I also agree Boris looks well under 6'4" compared to Levy. As for Ken Jeong and Kevin Hart, I'm not sure I'd expect Boris to stand his full height with guys that short in the full place, but fwiw, Jeong is just over a head shorter so you could argue Boris looks more a solid 6'3" than 6'4" with him, but I'm not sure Boris looks under 6'4" in the full pic with Kevin Hart: Click Here and for Mutombo, if Mutombo is standing his measured 7'1.25" then Boris looks right around 6'4" to me since he reaches his lower lip: Click Here If Mutombo is dropping more height then I'd agree Boris measures up less than 6'4", but even then, he's measuring up better to Mutombo than Dwayne Wade did to Shaq, fwiw: Click Here I'm not sure whether Wade's 6'3.75" measurement is accurate or not, but even if we say he's 6'3" flat, he's just about a full head shorter than 7'0" range Shaq, so with Mutombo near an inch taller, Boris doesn't necessarily measure up worse to him than you'd expect.
Canson said on 23/Nov/18
@Viper: I was shocked to see how low he measured at the combine. Christian posted it and it’s 6’0 3/8 meaning he may just effectively be 6’0” tall af a low. I always viewed him as being closer to 6’1”
Tall Sam said on 22/Nov/18
On evidence, I'd say he generally looks a weak-ish 6'4" range, close to Conan O'Brien, but maybe has a chance of looking a little a more solid 6'4".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Nov/18
@Andrea

Once again, because those pics don't fit your narrative, you undermine, dismiss and make excuses for them. The pics that you provided where Boris looks 6'4" aren't any better than mine quality-wise.
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Andrea: go look at your posts to both me and Christian just in the last 3-4 weeks on Rob’s page. You mentioned two things that you’ve obviously neglected here (in your typical hypocritical fashion). You mentioned to him that he shouldn’t be mentioning whether or not your estimates are good etc or whether you can estimate. you’re now critiquing his just because they don’t align with yours? And you also posted about respecting other people’s opinions which you’re clearly not doing here? There’s nothing wrong with the pics Christian posted if you say and believe that your pictures are “good”. They’re no worse than what you posted. Only “defect” is that he proves his point that Boris “can look under 6’4” which you don’t want to believe. He didn’t say that he’s under 6’4” however.
viper said on 20/Nov/18
Whoa, Ray Lewis has some really long arms.
Canson said on 20/Nov/18
@184guy: I would say 3.5 once footwear is accounted for. Barkley doesn’t look as tall as Rob lists him here and he measured 6’4 5/8 back in 1992. He actually looks right around 6’4.5 most of the time but that puts Boris more 6’3” range than 6’4” which is how Boris looked with Kobe in my opinion. I look at the pics Christian posted and that’s also how he looks to me
Canson said on 19/Nov/18
@Christian: Houston was measured at 6’4.75 (not sure what time of the day). But he’s got Boris by more than an inch

By the way they are decent quality pics as well
Andrea said on 19/Nov/18
Aside from the fact that in some of them he actually still looks 6'4, Christian, the majority of pics you posted where he looks "clearly under 6'4"" are (not surprisingly) pics where Boris is clearly disadvantaged and/or very questionable and inconclusive pics (like those rough comparisons you made with that random guy, which totally depend on how good that single pic is). Not to mention those based on your very personal and questionable estimates, like Barkley's and Merriman's (which you funnily call "measurements", even if they aren't, at least not officially), or on random Internet listings, like Utendahl's (who even a blind man would realize that is well over 6'3, given that he seems comfortably taller than a 6'5 MEASURED guy like Cam Newton Click Here Click Here ). So, not only your post is pointless, but it does nothing but confirm what I've always said about you...
184guy2 said on 19/Nov/18
@Canson
I don't think that Barkley looked that much taller than Boris
Looks to me a max 3cm difference
I can easily see their respectives listings
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
@Andrea: to be fair and not trying to start an argument, the perceptions of Viper vary from one person to the next. Some may feel that way as you do and a few others have made the comments about him before on other pages. Then you have some who respect him or respect his estimates like Rising for example and Danimal and even a couple others over the years (looking at older comments). This is taking Christian and me out of the picture as we have not been around as long as you all have. Either way, someone else could say the same about you or Rising or Rob for that matter but that doesn’t mean it’s true nor does it mean that everyone feels the same. But making the distinction about removing “according to Andrea” makes it sound as if you are saying that that is universally a fact about Viper when it’s not. That would mean for one that he’s never guessed a celeb accurately and it would mean that it’s a fact when it’s far from that. He’s had some good guesses here before as well for one and two nobody guesses a celeb perfectly each time nor does everyone agree on everyone’s estimates. That’s what you even said on rob’s page when you mentioned a post about respecting people’s opinions.

Canson said on 18/Nov/18
@Christian and Rising: here is what I see below:

Barkley does in fact appear to have a thicker shoe so we can knock off maybe 1/4”-1/2” tops.

Click Here

Barkley has about 1.75” (4-5cm) on Boris before the footwear advantage. Once we knock that off it’s down to around 1.5”. Maybe 3.5cm difference.

Now you know my stance that Barkley is not as tall (nor has he ever been as tall) as Rob lists him here at his low. He measured 6’4 5/8 in 92 and with Magic Terry Porter and Dan Majerle today he looks no more than 194cm (if that). To Rob’s credit a peak Barkley may be better listed than today’s basketball players who are mostly half inch below their listed barefoot heights. Barkley may be more like 1/4-3/8” maybe just 1/4” above his low here. If he measured in today’s NBA he would likely be 6’5 at that time of the morning (if not listed at 6’5.25 in his file just because the other players who measure a mm or a few mm over 6’5 would likely get the same). Even if we gave Barkley 194.5 today Boris comes out to 191. This is similar to what I was saying about the difference he had with Kobe where taking it into account Boris looked anywhere around 190 and change maybe weak 191. My guess now is that Boris does not look under 6’3” based on that but he’s likely not much over either. Maybe 6’3.25 tops but could really just be similar in height with a peak Larry Holmes (6’3-6’3 1/8). I won’t rule out 6’3.25 but he definitely does not look 192 cm imho. This is of course assuming Barkley is still that tall and not a bit less. I say that because you’ve seen a lot of people who’ve met Barkley say he’s 6’4” now a days including Sarah Spain who’s spent considerable time around him. I wouldn’t go as low as 6’4 but he could be around my height at 6’4.25 as I know someone who’s met him that said he’s around my height give or take

Click Here

Click Here

I also estimate Magic to be only a flat 6’7” today at best. Maybe peak he was 201 but never looked any taller than that. Kurt Rambis edged him out when they played together and next to KAJ who is not as tall as he was peak, he still looks max 6’7. Terry Porter has always looked around 6’2” to me. That’s maybe giving him a fraction possibly if you see him with Mo williams who is about 6’0”. 6’1.5 isn’t out of the question nor is 6’1.75

@Rising: Davis in person can give off a 6’3 impression. Admittedly I have usually gauged myself 6’4.5 when I’ve compared myself to people as opposed to 6’4.25 (I didn’t realize I was that low until after I had been posting here) so based on that maybe he falls a bit under 6’3 since he did measure 6’3.25 in the morning. He could be somewhere around Viper’s height to tell the truth (6’2.75) as a worst case scenario. However, I’d be willing to say 6’2 7/8 as he looked the same as my 6’3 friend who also drops to 190.3cm at his low. It’s possible there may have been a bit of variance in our shoes and I didn’t notice it.
Andrea said on 16/Nov/18
Just the fact that you call them "excuses" goes to show that you don't even know what camera angles are, Christian, otherwise you wouldn't call them that way, considering that, as I said, the only times I say pics have bad camera angles is when they really do.
As for the wearing lifts and tiptoeing thing, I clearly did explain the "larger conversation" right when I introduced those arguments, but of course all you understood was me saying Jamie Foxx is in lifts and Akon is tiptoeing, proving once again how limited your brain is, and how impossible it is to have a serious discussion with a close-minded person like you.

Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Nov/18
@Canson: I agree on posture as Chi does look like one of those big, heavy guys who may not stand as tall as he can while Boris seems to have pretty good posture for a man his height. I disagree about Boris never giving that big 6'4" impression, though with that Casper video as one example and how well he measures up to Rick Fox on video as another. Generally, I'd expect a 6'3" guy to look less towering with a strong 5'9" guy and shorter with a 6'5.5" or weak 6'6". I won't say he's never given a 6'3" impression either.

@Christian: I think the conversation Andrea was referring to at least as far as Foxx was Jamie pulling off 5'10" at times in recent years such as with Channing Tatum, Gerard Butler, Andy Garcia and a few others. I know I've wondered if Foxx started wearing lifts the last 5 or 10 years based on that before I was even aware of the debate with Boris. I have no idea if Akon has a history of tip-toeing or if people have suspected that before. The height difference can vary with Boris, though. Click Here Click Here Click Here He's at the top or just above his eyes in the first, at the bottom or just below his eyes in the second and clearly below his eyes in the 3rd. In general, Boris is looking more 6'3" range overall with Akon, but fwiw, Boris looks taller with Akon than Vernon Davis did: Click Here Granted, if the difference with Akon is bigger than it looks, I'd probably guess it was due to Boris dropping some height with his stance rather than Akon tip-toeing, but I don't know any of their footwear. But I'd need to hear Andrea's explanation on the Akon thing.

@Viper: can’t argue with your estimate for Merriman at least after that video. Best case is he is maybe a hair over 6’2” if, like Christian also said, we are generous about the difference between he and Bennett. Meaning if we went with 3.5 over 4”. 6’2 includes 6’2.25
Canson said on 15/Nov/18
@Rising: I agree that it’s hard to tell a lot but one thing I did notice is Chi has horrendous posture while Boris has very good posture like he does in other videos and pics I’ve seen. I’ve noticed with some heavier guys that they may be losing height and he doesn’t have the same proportions. I could believe that Chi could’ve been 6’5 out of bed and 6’4 at a low. A guy his size could lose a lot more with his weight
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Nov/18
@Andrea

Of course I know what camera angles are, and how they affect how tall someone can look in a pic. And I'm sure you do as well. But unlike me, you often conveniently use it as an excuse for pics where Boris looks under 6'4". Me on the other hand, I don't use the camera angle excuse for pics where Boris looks 6'4", and I sure as heck don't accuse Boris of wearing lifts or tiptoeing. Speaking of the lifts and tiptoeing excuses you make, you claim that they're part of a "larger conversation", but you can't seem to even identify what that "larger conversation" is. So as far as I'm concerned, you're just making up more excuses to cover up those excuses.
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Nov/18
@Andrea: In the wide shot, I could see Marlon 6'0.25" compared to a 6'4" Boris, but more 6'0"-6'0.25" range in the other shot in front of the door. This is without considering if there's a difference between Boris' dress shoes and Marlon's sneakers. But he's struggling with 6'0" compared to a 6'4" Boris in the other scene( looks like in a restaurant/bar?). Chi does look tall there with John so it's possible I was thinking of him as shorter because of his posture and build and the director naturally didn't want him to tower Bruce Willis so much. But now that I think of it, he could look very big on the show, both Chi and Boris look at least 6'4" on stage since Rob literally just upgraded Brooks to 6'2.25" rather than 6'2" flat and he's looking noticeably shorter than either.

@Canson: They're still too close to call for me in those 2 or 3 seconds they're face to face. One second Chi is taller, but another Boris is and then they can be identical. Some is posture and camera distance, but I'd be able to say better if I knew who had a longer head naturally.

"Viper was onto something when he guessed him 6’1.5-6’2."

But I'm a terrible judge of height according to Andrea. Maybe the worst ever lol
Canson said on 14/Nov/18
@Viper: I’ve never gotten the impression of Boris that I do of someone such as a peak David Hasselhoff, Liam Neeson or a Padalecki.
Canson said on 14/Nov/18
@Viper: I’ve had Merriman shorter than Boris for a while. The video was by far the best determinant of how tall Merriman actually is as both he and Bennett are barefoot, standing next to each other for a period of time.

@Christian: I’ve seen a couple where he’s been listed at 6’2.5. While Boris’s height is still debatable, Seeing as how Merriman likely is around 6’2 from the video, a solid 6’3” is very much believable (based on how both stacked up next to Barkley). I wouldn’t completely close the door on 6’2.75 either. Viper was onto something when he guessed him 6’1.5-6’2. Bennett at a weak 6’6” could even put Merriman right around 6’1.75 but I’ll call it 6’2” for now

@Rising: I didn’t say that properly. Meant to say “how much taller”. I can say without hesitation that Chi is the taller of the two but how much is the question
Andrea said on 13/Nov/18
Me "accusing" Jamie Foxx of wearing lifts or Akon of tiptoeing weren't excuses, but part of a larger conversation, which you obviously (and not surprisingly) can't get, Christian. As for the camera angles, the only times I say pics have bad camera angles is when they really do, although I do realize that they sound like excuses to you, given that you probably don't even know what a camera angle is, like you have proven more than once.
Andrea said on 13/Nov/18
I agree, Rising. As for Marlon, not only Boris looks at least 6'4 with him, but if Boris is only 6'4 flat, it's also hard to believe Marlon is much over 6' (let alone his 6'0.5 listing, or his ridiculous 6'2 claim), I'd say. I don't know about Avery, but considering he was 55-56 at the time of that clip, I doubt he had lost a particularly big amount of height by then. Also, as you can see there, he's standing very straight in front of Boris (which is something I'm not sure he often did), and he still looks AT LEAST 1 cm shorter than him, IMO. As for McBride, I'm not sure about him, whether he really was 6'4.5 or possibly nearer to 6'4 flat, though he did look comfortably taller than someone like John Larroquette, who gets listed at 6'4 on here: Click Here Click Here And certainly more than he did with Boris, with whom he struggled to look any taller. Here's another clip of them (the guy in the middle who speaks into the microphone is 6'2.25 listed Mehcad Brooks, mind you): Click Here

After seeing Merriman with Martellus Bennet barefoot. We can easily say Boris is taller
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Nov/18
He was also listed 189cm on old sites when he was a model.
Canson said on 13/Nov/18
@Rising: admittedly I can’t tell to the letter who’s taller either. I agree it’s not a good video or gauge and also because the two are close in height even if an inch separates them (give or take). Of course, this is my opinion. You called it well with the basketball players but even for Jordan you have him 195 and I had him 194-194.5 (6’4.5) so about 1/4” difference but the differences surely will influence our perceptions of the players and the person being compared to. Too bad the pics with Roger Bobb weren’t great either nor do we know exactly how tall he is
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Nov/18
@Andrea

The same excuses and arguments you made when you accused Jamie Foxx of wearing lifts or accused Akon of tiptoeing, all because Boris didn't look 6'4" in those pics? Or the same excuses and arguments you love to spew in pics where Boris looks sub-6'4", as "having bad camera angles"? Take a look at yourself in the mirror before you judge others.
Andrea said on 12/Nov/18
No, Christian. "Logic" and "sense" only applies when people know what they're talking about, and they don't need to come out with nonsense excuses and "arguments" to cover their bias and hidden agenda. Nice joke, btw.
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Nov/18
@Canson: That's kind of tough to judge. I will say Chi is taller for a second when they first stop around 24 or 25, but then Boris looks taller and then Chi is farther from the camera and slouching the rest of the clip so there's only maybe 2 seconds to fairly compare when they're standing. Walking is even tougher because Chi puts his head down, but then Boris leans in when they're talking and you can't pause to check when they're walking like you can when they're standing. Personally, I'd guess very little height difference between them overall, but I suspect you may be right about Chi being more 6'4" flat. As for the shoes in the Kobe pic, as I said, I'm not ruling out 1" for Boris's shoes because the angle is kind of high in all pics and I don't know the model, but my guess would have been more 0.7"-0.8". Either way I agree Boris looks below 6'4" there and as I said, I get why you'd estimate him 6'3" range since I assume you're giving more weight to how he looks with Kobe, Barkley, Dirk etc. I have a hard time estimating the difference with Jordan, though. The Barkley, Kobe, Dirk pics are all much better, imo. Obviously, I believe Jordan is taller than Boris, but I can't guess how much with Jordan behind him. I wouldn't go below 6'3.5" for Boris overall, but considering you estimate some of the basketball players lower than I do, that would make sense I'd guess Boris higher than you do. As for Roddick, I hadn't really looked at him before this, but 187 range may be more accurate.

@Andrea: I've guessed Serena similar height to Casper and she only reaches around Boris' mouth so I'd think that was 8", but she is bending her knee. Boris looks a full 6'4" with Marlon, imo.
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Christian: to clarify, I would probably say it’s 3-3.5cm difference between them. 3.5 is very possible with the knee and the angle of the camera. So going off that and accounting for footwear that would take it to 190.3-190.8. Absolute max I would say is 190.8-191.3 if we go with the 3cm diff accounting for Kobe’s knee. Otherwise maybe 191-191.3 is an absolute. While 191 is very possible for him 190.5 is just as good an estimate. Rising mentioned 192 as did Andrea and we have seen in many pics of other celebs where one is suspected to be the listed height and they end up a CM or two shorter when rob meets them

I guess "logic" and "sense" only applies when you agree with it. Canson has just as much logic and sense as Rising, but you treat him like crap.
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Christian: agreed. With the small footwear advantage, Kobe would have that. 0.7-.8 is too little. That shoe that Boris has on is a full inch and Kobe has on a canvas shoe which is 5/8 maybe 3/4”. Best case is it’s a 1/4” worst case 3/8. I think he looks 6’3” as well. I just think it’s hilarious that you and I were lectured a couple weeks ago about “respecting the opinions of others” when you read the contents of the hypocritical comment below the one you just made.
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Nov/18
@Canson: Thanks and which part of the clip do you mean? When they're walking or standing talking? And yeah, I think Chi's posture is up and down in general. I remember they made it so he didn't look 5" taller than 5'11"-5'11.5" Bruce Willis in Mercury Rising. Sometimes I would have said 3"-3.5" difference between them and we know that's not the case, but some of that probably had to do with not wanting the hero(Willis) to be towered.

@Andrea: Thanks, I have seen a decent chunk of those, but not all and I had forgotten I had seen some like the Cena pic. Certainly, Boris looks no less than 6'4" with him and he looks about that with 5'9" Anthony Anderson as well. I can see an argument for just below 6'4" with Anderson, but not Cena in that pic. I had seen the James Avery clip too. How tall was Avery by 55-56 years old? I have to say that the difference with Damien Woody looks an absolute minimum 2 cm to me in that pic. It's hard for me to argue Boris is looking right around 6'4" there compared to Woody's measurement. I'll look through some of the others I haven't over the next few days.

Also, Kobe had one of his knees bent on top of that. Boris just looks flat 6'3" with him. I see a 1.75" difference.
Andrea said on 11/Nov/18
LOL... Thank God there's you who brings some logic and sense into this page, Rising!
If Boris' shoes really are thicker than Kobe's, I doubt it's anything noticeable (not even a 1/4 of an inch), as I agree that they don't seem over that 0.7-0.8 range. Which, more or less, is what even Rob said. And Rob certainly has some knowledge about footwear and shoes thickness...
As for McBride, if anything, he did look barely taller than Boris in Boston Public, like 0.5 inch at the very most, as you can see in this scene I myself have posted: Click Here . And today, I wouldn't be surprised if Boris was the taller one, as already in 2013 Chi could look no taller than Boris, despite being in more footwear: Click Here Click Here Click Here Btw, since you said that you hadn't seen the clip, I assume you haven't seen all the pics and clips I've posted so far, so I'll copy and paste the last list I've posted for you:

@Rising: for Boris’s shoe I wouldn’t go under an inch but not above either. That’s “about” the norm for that type of sneaker (at least if they’re what I think they are)
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Rising: lol i see what you’re saying. From that pic I have Boris around the 191 range but with his camera advantage I’ll admit that’s possible. Here’s the clip from Boston Public. One take away is that Chi doesn’t always stand at his best.

Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Nov/18
@Canson: All the photos I've seen from that event are high so they don't give me as good of a look at his shoes as I'd like so as I said, I'm not certain, but imo, those look more like they'd be 0.7"-0.8". but, Boris might have 1/4" thicker footwear. For arguments sake if Kobe is 6'4.75"(which I believe would be his low if anything) or even 6'5" then Boris does look more likely 6'3.5" than 6'4" with him, imo. For arguments sake, if we just call Kobe 194.9 as Rob has him(which I believe would be his low if anything) and I concede 0.5 cm footwear advantage then that would mean Boris looks 191.4 with him, imo or 191.3. I won't argue 1 mm lol so you could say 0.6 cm footwear advantage. I use to watch Boston Public sometimes when it originally aired, but I don't remember Boris so I'll have to see the clip. I think I saw more of the show in the first 2, maybe 3 seasons and perhaps occasionally towards the end, but I wouldn't doubt McBride was taller.
Canson said on 10/Nov/18
@Rising: so to be fair, Christian and I have both been arguing this entire time that there is evidence of him looking 6’3” and there is. Both of our arguments have been that he can look 6’3 just as he can 6’4”. All I’ve said is that just because there are “more pics of him looking 6’4” doesn’t mean that he is. We could have 20 pics 13 6’4 and 7 6’3 and if the 10 of the 13 are bad or inconclusive, then it negates it. Another place where he looks 6’3” is with Michael Jordan and with the Game, Boris looks sub 6’3” like he does with Jamie Foxx. But we are told that there are no pics or only one or two. There are several where he looks around 6’3”
Canson said on 10/Nov/18
@Rising: my guess on the shoe difference is 1/4” to 3/8”. I have canvas shoes that add 3/4” but as Christian pointed out most add about 5/8”. I can agree that Boris’s shoes may not add over an inch but not under either. I would say exactly 1”. So if the difference is about 3cm (I won’t rule out 3.5 to be honest since Boris is favored), but I’ll go with around 3. I would say Kobe coming out at 194.9 would make Boris about 191.9. That’s also if that’s Kobe’s lowest but it’s close I’d agree. Then taking footwear into account he comes out at 191-191.3. I used to think he was under 6’3” but today I don’t rule out a hair over 6’3”. I just think he’s closer to 6’3” than 6’4 and much closer. I saw the clip of he and Chi McBride when Boris was on Boston Public and there was one. Where he looked clearly taller than Boris when he stood straight it looked 3 cm for a moment then 2cm for a moment. Either way, I have always had Chi as closer to 6’4 as opposed to 6’4.5.

As far as Roddick, a 6’1.5 wouldn’t surprise me nor would 6’1.75. Rampage usually tends to estimate higher than I do (that’s just how he sees it because I have a ton of respect for and think the world of Rampage as he is very classy just like you are) and he even guessed him as under 6’2” (6’1.75)
