How tall is Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley's Height

6ft 4 ⅞ (195.3 cm)

American former Basketball player. In 2002 a Sports Writer said Barkley was "Officially measured at 6-4 7/8 inches".
I'm 6-4 3/4 [6ft 6] just sounded good coming out of college.
They lie...I’ve been measured at 6-5, 6-4 ¾. But I started in college at 6-6. (2008)
I claimed to be 6-6 when I played, but I'm only 6-5 1/2
What's so startling about the numbers is another number: his height of 6-foot-4....In 10th grade, pudgy and merely 5-foot-10, he failed to make his high school varsity squad...A 6-inch growth spurt his senior year led to a scholarship

It was in the run-up to the 1992 Olympics that the world finally learned what the cognoscenti had long suspected -- that Charles Barkley was more like 6-4 5/8 than 6-6, and Magic Johnson closer to 6-7 than 6-9.
- Sports Illustrated
[When] Barkley questioned [Tiger] Woods' listed height of 6-foot-2, Woods responded by saying, "every program said you were 6-6. you're no more than 6-4 on a good day."

I believe the 6’4 and seven eighths measurement 👍

Hey,

Sorry, my mistake, I meant that Barkley is close to 120Kgs not the 150Kgs.

Hard to really judge who's the tallest (imo, Larratt), however, the main issue is how deceptive different views of the same object, can be.

Hi Pdoggy... maybe, but look carefully from 02:30 to 02:34, I think the same thing happened with the Rock.
Have in mind that Barkley is like a 150Kgs dude and close to the 2 meters.
Pdoggy said on 5/Jan/21
@Alex V.
Cool video. I did not see a really good point where we could gauge who was taller. However it appeared Larratt was looking up a little at Charles. The camera angles were not great for height gauging, but in the video Charles looks taller.

Look at 02:30

Larratt IS taller than Barkley but this guy is a huuuge fellow and when the angles are not in the "right" position, it's like he is much taller than anyone with similar height, same goes with "The Rock", whom IMO, can't be lesser than 6'4".

Webber, I think, is a legit 6'9 (or at least within a fraction of it), if you see him next to Shaq, Garnett, and Duncan. Chuck is, by the way, also standing with poor posture in that photo. If anything, that photo tells me Barkley is not below 6'5.

That photo with Magic is also highly unrepresentative of their actual height difference. I don't know why you would post that - it's a terrible picture for judging height (Magic is standing a lot closer to the camera and stretching himself, whereas Barkley is standing with quite relaxed posture and seemingly standing on mostly one leg).
This picture is better, I think: Click Here
Now, Barkley is a bit closer to the camera, but Magic again has a bit better posture. Barkley does not look below 6'5 here. Barkley generally stands quite well with Magic. If Magic truly is 6'7½, there is no way that Barkley is in the 6'4½ range. He has to be about 6'5.
Even though the difference between them is very small, I also think it makes sense that Barkley was/is taller than Jordan; he does appear ever so slightly taller than Jordan, if you peruse through enough photos of them with different people.
Maybe Barkley is 6'4⅞ at night; there is really no way to tell. In general he comes across as a 6'5 guy - sometimes a little shorter but certainly also taller occasionally.

Only problem is that Mo Cheeks called Webber 6’8/6’9” when he was with the Sixers and Webber at a solid 6’9” isn’t possible with Jalen Rose or Peja Stojakovic. He doesn’t have 3” on Rose. Barkley measured 6’4 5/8 in 1992 which he looked more often than not on the court. A lot of players including Mo Cheeks when he played with him in Philly also said he’s 6’4/6’5”. And if you see Webber with 6’9.75 Rasheed Wallace (assuming that’s his afternoon height) he has Webber by at least an inch. Then there was an interview with Kevin Garnett at All Star weekend once where he was a good 2-3” shorter than Garnett

@Editor Rob: more than just a few times. That’s the only height I’ve ever heard him claim. He did it again once when he called Michael Jordan 6’6 and that he was a lot bigger than him and that he was only 6’2”. Then on NBA inside stuff back in 1997 I believe, he said he’s listed 6’5 but is really only 6’2”. The latter is the first time I ever heard him claim 6’2” and it was on the show with Ahmad Rashad. I wouldn’t be surprised if he were a tad bit under the mark with joe he stood with Larry Johnson. Larry Johnson I doubt is the full 6’5.5 like Ralf Moeller was in his prime but I could buy a weak half. This is more so when you take into account Anthony Mason was described as 6’5 in one of the links. I doubt Mason was only 6’5” but I could see a 197cm range guy next to a guy who’s (maybe 6’5) like JR Smith

@Canson
Sorry guy I do not agree. I am fine with your belief of Charles height it's only an inch different from mine. I believe he peaked at 6'6". You don't buy that which is fine. Most of Rob's estimates I agree with this one I don't. I am fully aware Charles himself says he is in the 6'4" to 6'5" range. Conan often tilts his head. He does with Draymond and Charles.

It seems you take this very seriously. I don't. It is just a comment page on someone's height, not the most important thing in the world.

Taking seriously? All I did was respond to your post. As far as tilting his head with them, that isn’t going to make the difference as he looks sub 6’4 with Gronkowski as well. As for Barkley, I’m not seeing how he is taller than he measured in 1992

@Viper: here is Barkley with 6’8 (max) Karl Malone. Malone claimed that height as well. He doesn’t even look 6’5 next to him. Looks around his measured height of 6’4 5/8 or 6’4 1/2”. Then you see Penny Reggie Miller and Scottie Pippen. Penny tilting his head has an exaggerated difference with Miller. In reality, they’re around 198 (Penny), 197 (Miller) and maybe 200 (Pippen).

I am not sure how accurate those pics were to say if Charles is taller than Peyton but it does support Charles still being between 6'5 and 6'6. I honestly believe he was at peak height(6'6") in early 90's when he was at his leanest.

Rob has Peyton Manning at 6’5.25”, Steph Curry at 6’2” and Phil Mickelson at 6’2.25” I'm not sure if Mickelson is quite that tall. Barkley really towered over him at their exhibition golf match last week.

FriedChicken said on 27/Nov/20
How is conan Strong 6'4" when Liam Neeson was taller than him. What is Neeson? 6'5? Imo i find that very hard to believe. The general consensus for Conan is that he's 6'3 1/2. He's taller than legit 6'3" guys but when he's compared to people who are actually 6'4" like Hasselhoff he comes out shorter.

Also hard to believe Barkley is over 6'5" when all of his recorded measurements were below that mark.

@Fried Chicken: well said! Also where was it “agreed upon”? If I look closely you have people on Rock’s page guessing Rock under 6’2”. While I don’t believe he actually is (I think he’s a solid 6’2 still), it’s obviously tilted in Barkley’s favor or Rock isn’t standing straight being I have a friend who’s met both guys and said Barkley in the 2000s and 90s (I believe) was max 1.5” taller than him and he was 6’3 peak (6’2.75 today). He said Rock looked 6’2 a few years ago when he met him. Not to mention Conan’s page. Nothing is agreed upon. Like I said earlier you can’t take certain things seriously when Barkley was actually measured multiple times barefoot and Conan never was. If anything I don’t believe Conan’s simply because he never looks 6’4” imho. Neeson, Hasselhoff, Kobe, etc. he looked max 192 with them.

Canson said on 25/Nov/20
@Fried Chicken: agreed on both fronts. It’s funny how it works here. An unmeasured guy here is the height Rob lists him yet the guy who actually measured 6’4 5/8 in his prime (he’s not even at his peak height anymore) is being questioned. Barkley doesn’t have an inch And a half on Conan. He had about an inch less than Draymond Green who is 6’5.25 has on Conan.

@Christian: and said avg guess for Rob is even more ridiculous because Rob has claimed his height probably hundreds of times. Yet people still dispute it or they simply want him to be taller. I don’t get some of the silliness with “well Rob you actually measure 173.7 on this stadiometer” etc. or the wishful thinking. He’s explained that situation many times
Canson said on 24/Nov/20
@Christian: I would definitely make that a low for him over Jordan’s being a low. I’ve always listed Barkley 6’4 5/8 when I compared him. That could be his low in his prime so maybe I’m wrong
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Nov/20
@Canson
I can believe it was a low for Barkley's moreso than Jordan's.

@J2
Same reason why Rob's average guess is 5'8 3/8" despite him being 5'8 1/8". We live in a society where tallness tend to be more favored.
Canson said on 22/Nov/20
I honestly believe the Olympic measurements 6’4 5/8 for Barkley and 6’4.75 for Jordan were not lows. I feel they’re both prob 6’4.5 guys
Canson said on 22/Nov/20
@Tunman: at the combine they definitely didn’t. I would think 6’4.75 would be his combine and 6’4 5/8 his Olympic measurement as they may measure that way there. If Rob doesn’t want to go with the Olympic, at least go with what he claimed 6’4.75 and it’s the same as Jordan is listed

@Big King: I doubt it’s half inch. If Jordan really is taller it’s not much. It’s very Likely that they’re the same height in their prime
J2Frenzy said on 22/Nov/20
Why is the average guess so high? It’s been made abundantly clear that he’s under 6’5, yet the average guess is strong 6’5
Editor Rob
a fair amount of people have guessed him as 6ft 5 or a fraction over, more so than say 6ft 4.5 to 4.75
Big King said on 21/Nov/20
The strange thing is that both Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan are listed as around 195 cm here on CelebHeights but Jordan has at least a half inch on Barkley. So I would say that Jordan stands 6'5" while Barkley is a strong 6'4" guy.

There's no way you can be off by 6 inches thats definitely a typo for his IMBD

As Barkley claimed himself 6'4.75 maybe it's fair to give him that?Since Jordan was listed at 6'4.75,we don't know exactly what's the true mark Barkley was measured at.Is it 6'4 5/8 or is it 6'4 3/4 or 6'4 7/8?The middle mark is a good compromise.In fact I'm not sure they measured people to the 1/8".Too bad that journalist didn't show all the measurements

FriedChicken said on 18/Nov/20
I think Barkley should be downgraded to 6'4 3/4 or 6'4 5/8 peak because of the Michael Jordan downgrade.
Canson said on 17/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: what was Barkley stored at in the 1992 database? Likely 6’4 5/8?
Editor Rob
Unknown...the journalist in his article had looked up Jordan on the Olympic database and seen 6ft 4 3/4 and reported it as such. It's hard to argue with giving Jordan that mark.

Arguably the 3 GOAT's were all within a small fraction, Barkley, Kobe and Jordan.

@JD1996:
I don’t blame you. His height is wacky. One moment he is shorter than Jordan the other moment he is edging him by inches. I still think 6’4 5/8” is a good call.
Niels said on 9/Nov/20
Charles Barkley must always have been at least somewhere in between 194,5 cm and 195 cm barefoot. Inch measurements are naturally inexact measurements.
I doubt he is 193 (6,4).
With shoes he was about 197 cm.

We could also debate about MJs hight. In my point of view: 195,3 cm.
JD1996 said on 8/Nov/20
He can look anywhere from 6’4” to 6’6” can’t make an accurate estimate on him in truth so I won’t put a guess as I’m not sure at all
Canson said on 5/Nov/20
He needs a downgrade especially when the highest (exact number) he’s ever claimed was 6’4.75”. 6’5 was him rounding up but he’s also claimed 6’4 1/2” and was measured 6’4 5/8”. The previous listing is about as high as anyone could ever argue (6’4.75)

Canson said on 30/Oct/20
@Vincent: yea peak id say the same that below 6’4.5 was extreme low territory. He could’ve been 6’4 5/8 even. Today 193-194 imho for 1/4” loss or 3/8” loss
Vincent Caleb said on 30/Oct/20
@Canson-Anything less than 6-4.5 is an extreme low for Barkley. Imo he would have a better chance at a full 195 than Jordan who I have at 6-4.5. Barkley can look 6-6 sometimes due to posture and footwear, but with a recent pick with Conan he looked at most an inch taller. He may have lost a quarter inch of height from surgery. Average guess is ridiculous, though I understand why it is like that.
Canson said on 27/Oct/20
@Vincent: and we’re also not sure if that was even a low for him in his prime although I would be hard pressed to see less than 6’4.5”. But he is known to wear some very thick and puffy footwear on occasion which makes him appear taller from what has been said. If we look at him with 6’7” (peak) Clark Kellogg in recent years, Barkley looks around 6’4” or a hair over now
Vincent Caleb said on 25/Oct/20
6’4 5/8” is what he measured so that’s how tall he is. I can see how ha can look taller but if you get measured at the nba it is a legit measurement.
Canson said on 19/Oct/20
@Niels: based on the two I know of for Magic and Barkley (they’re the only two on record), they appear to be barefoot. They’re 6’9 and 6’6” listings are their listed heights (with shoes and rounded up more than likely$
Niels said on 18/Oct/20
Question:
When we talk about the measurements at the Olympic games, were the players heights incicated as barefoot measurements?
Canson said on 17/Oct/20
@RJT: agreed. And Ainge says it here as does Dan Majerle. I’ll say 6’4 5/8 best case for afternoon height but maybe 6’4.5”.

@Canson @Editor Rob

Found this conversation, you should add it to the quote list Rob

When Barkley was with the Suns he was doing an interview and the interviewer asked him how tall he was and he said 6'6". It just so happened Danny Ainge was passing by and heard the conversation.

Ainge: "Dog, you ain't 6'6". I"m 6'4" and you're only a little bit taller than me.
Barkley (just smiles)
Ainge: "Stand up, dog!'
Sure enough, Barkley was only a smidge taller. Click Here #22 is Ainge

Therefore 6'4 5/8" or 6'4 3/4" on good day.

If anything, that makes what Barkley accomplished all the more amazing considering he consistently grabbed over 10 rebounds in all but rookie year.
Canson said on 14/Oct/20
@Fried Chicken: yea my guess is 6’4 5/8 peak and 6’4.25 today tops
FriedChicken said on 12/Oct/20
After seeing the Draymond comparison, i think Barkley isn't over 6'4.5 today. Plus in the Kelogg video he even seems a flat 6'4". When you're overweight, in your 50s, and had hip surgery you're going to be shorter than what you used to be. I would've propose to a peak/current listing for him but it'd be strange since we have men in their 70s and 80s like Bill Russel and Kareem who don't have a current listing.

Peak: 6'4 5/8, maybe 3/4
Currently: 6'4 1/4 or 6'4.5 still over a flat 193 cm, maybe he'd hit that low in his early 60s.

Yeah it's been mentioned before, but he does consider himself 6ft 5...even if he measured under it a little.
Canson said on 11/Oct/20
@Fried Chicken: but he Had aged when he stood next to Kobe. At his peak height i would still say Kobe was taller but not by anything really noticeable if he himself was 6’4.75”. Now I can believe today he’s only 6’4 or a hair over seeing the video with Clark Kellogg and the comparison below with he and Draymond Green with Conan. imho best case he’s my height today and peak height 6’4.5 afternoon or 6’4 5/8 best case
FriedChicken said on 10/Oct/20
Don't forget the time where he was also shorter than Kobe. He shouldn't have gotten the upgrade. If anything 6'4 5/8 is the way to go.

Canson said on 2/Oct/20
@Fried Chicken: that’s an instance where Barkley likely didn’t wear enhanced footwear. You can see he looks shorter next to Conan all things considered than Draymond Green does. Conan is learning with Draymond too. Draymond is what Rob lists him which is how he looks with Paul Pogba. Worst case he’s 6’5” Flat or a hair over.

With Conan who is leaning. Footwear unknown. Conan is most likely not a legit 6'4" guy as Neeson and Tom Selleck appeared taller and Conan even said Neeson was taller.

@Editor Rob: it wouldn’t surprise me if they’re the same. He called Jordan 6’4 range Like he was and also 6’6” and that he was taller than him. Best cases peak Barkley 194 Jordan 195, or both 6’4.5 range

The full 6 ft 5 i can not see. 6'4 3/4 Kobe Bryant edged him out. And the fact that Barkley's 3 barefoot measurment were all different supports the fact that they were taken during 3 different times, and his highest measurment, 6'4 7/8 is most likely earlier in the day with 6'4 3/4 or 6'4 5/8 being afternoon.

I know, I just wanted to hear the excuses of Canson and Viper. Even if I grant them that he wears shoes – which cannot be proven – and the fact that mugshots give the illusion that you are 0.5 inches taller, we’d still be talking 6ft5 at a minimum...

Hmm Willes-19. You mean like the excuses you make when you berate someone such as being “under the influence”. Seems like some things don’t change. And you make excuses about the mugshot. The video of Clark Kellogg along with what others have said about Barkley’s height in his prime add up. You don’t want to accept when someone isn’t as tall at they’re listed. You like everyone to be taller than listed
Canson said on 21/Sep/20
I don’t get it. Rob has mentioned the mugshot before. I don’t see why we are still discussing it in trying to make him taller but the same person(s) bringing it up swore in the past that Barkley was 6’5.5 and downplayed his height. In other words not very credible

I and others have posted that mugshot picture here before. It will get shot down by some here who are sure he was only 6 5. I believe 6'6" because of that point on his head especially when this was taken he was a lot thinner and therefore not hunched from excessive weight.

As Rob has stated he’s looking down at the camera
Canson said on 19/Sep/20
Willes190 said on 16/Sep/20
This listing is very good. Remember that this is what he measured and looked next to others. Sometimes he actually looked even way taller than this, e.g. with Dwayne Johnson. Also his dad Shaq is over 7ft tall, so it would be very improbable for Charles to end up below this figure. I’m actually very surprised that he didn’t end up taller, at around 6ft6-6ft7+ given the circumstances.

He measured 6’4 5/8” at the Olympics. If you see the video with Kellogg he’s not 6’4 7/8”

The Kellogg video is really a middle finger to people who think Barkley is over 6-5 lol

Yea and Now you’re gonna hear how he “shrunk over an inch”. He was always 6’4-6’5. But To be fair, the solid 6’5” guesses aren’t terrible but he measured 6’4 5/8”. Over 6’5 is ridiculous. He didn’t shrink much he wears thick footwear imho. If anything maybe he lost a fraction

Barkley is reaching an age at which a little height loss might be knocking at the door.

If Chuck was a wrestler he'd be 6ft 2.5 today.

Sorry Kellogg is listed at 6’7” too. That’s believable for a barefoot height and 6’8 with shoes. Barkley isn’t over 6’4” next to him if he’s 6’7”.

How much height difference do you see between Clark Kellog and Barkley? Kellog was only listed at 6’8” meaning he likely is that with shoes on max. Kellog is also aged

So if Barkley is really 6’4and a half or taller then why is the Rock listed so tall on this. Barkley clearly has at least 4 inches on Johnson. Johnson looked more like 6 feet at tops when he was in a photo with him, Barkley and Shaq. The Rock was to Shaq’s shoulders while Shaq was bent over.

I think there's always a difficulty within the height measurements in feet and inches though.

When Charles came out of college his height was at least 195,8 cm barefoot. So a flat 6 feet 5 inches guy.

Count now a good pair of basketball shoes heightening about 1 inch. In shoes 6 feet 6 inches.

This today's height is not relevant anymore/ anyway. I assume 194,5 cm

Pippen Also clearly had a minimum of 2” on Barkley in their primes. I’m not sure how tall Pippen actually is. My guess is 6’6.5 ish. Either way, I’m inclined to believe Barkley’s 6’4 5/8” being it was valid and being I know people who have met Barkley they all say he’s max 6’5, 6’4 1/2 or that he’s about my height (I’m 6’4.25). About my height could mean he’s 1/4” taller.

FriedChicken said on 19/Aug/20
Yeah we didn't say he was a flat 6'4".
Canson said on 18/Aug/20
Pippen is slouching and Barkley is favored by the camera. Pippen has at least two inches on him. Not to mention Pippen looks under 6’7” next to Magic. Barkley wouldn’t have been 3” shorter in their primes even if Pippen were 6’7” flat. Barkley measured 6’4 5/8” at the olympics and was said to be 6’4 1/2” by many people. He wasn’t a flat 6’4” then

Is it possible Barkley lost a fraction? I don't want to come off as like rude or anything but he has gained a bit of weight compared to when he played Basketball, plus he has had hip surgery and is in his 50's. Someone in Michael Jordan's shape will retain their height throughout age far better than someone like Barkley.

It definitely is. And that’s not rude what you said with regards To his physique today because it’s true. But he also had a hip replacement so it’s possible. But if he’s lost anything it would be 1cm maybe. 194-195 peak and 193-194 maybe

Not sure how i feel about Barkley listed as taller than Kobe. Maybe the 5/8 - 3/4 - 7/8 measurments were both at different times which explains the fluctuations

I look at the measurements for Jordan and Barkley and don’t see them as afternoon. More specifically for Jordan. Barkley at 5/8” peak I could see close to a low. I think he was exactly 6’4.5” afternoon height and Jordan about the same. Kobe on the other hand I see as an afternoon height and he would Possibly be 6’5.5” out of bed. I believe Kobe was the tallest of the 3

Charles is taller than too many people who were in the six four and six five category.

Conan
Jordan
Kobe
Ainge
His own mugshot he is at least 6'6".
He consistently comes out at 6'6"

Rob has already stated before that the mugshot is not reliable because Barkley is looking down at the camera. And Barkley is not taller than Jordan by anything noticeable. It is less than 1/4”, if anything, and they could even both be 6’4.5-.75 range at best. And Kobe is not shorter than Barkley. In fact it’s likely the opposite. Barkley has around an inch tops on Conan who is under 6’4” himself.

The only two on that list who Barkley is distinctly taller than are Conan and Ainge both of which are not as tall as they’re listed 6’4 and 6’5”, they’re 6’3.5 and 6’4 (Ainge himself claimed to be 6’4 and that Barkley was around 1/2” taller than him before).

Final result Barkley is 6’4 5/8” peak height which is what he measured in his prime

Please also remember that his accomplishments as a basketball player are more impressive if he claimed a lower height than a higher height.

They measured him at 6’4 5/8. He claims 6’5 pretty often along with 6’4”. So he’s not off by much. He isn’t taller than he was measured and in fairness he can round down if these guys who measure 6’4 out of bed and 6’3.25 afternoon height can round up or even claim their shoes

Here's what I would say as well about Charles height just look at the pics with him and Brad Garrett. There are good pics with him and Brad Garrett at a poker tournament Brad Garrett is wearing cowboy boots with good sized heels Barkley looks all of 6 7 with him in the picture. Garrett's height is 6"8.5 barefoot.

There are many other pics with other celebrities that over 6'4 as well that he is significantly taller than but pics can be deceiving. However most of the time he is a few inches taller.

Examples
The Rock 6'3
Conan 6'4
Norm Mcdonald 6'3
Ben Affleck 6'3
Etc.

None of those guys is as tall as you say they are.

The Rock is listed 6’2.5. He is more 6’2” Flat
Affleck is listed as 6’2,25 here. He looks Max 6’2 with Caron Butler
Conan is more 6’3.5”
McDonald is listed at 6’1.5”. Don’t know how you guessed him at 6’3”.

With that said you overestimate Barkley because you have everyone else overlisted. Barkley is only about an inch taller than Conan if even that today.

What is very frustrating is that so many posters want to reference shoulder height or eye level the only thing that matters is what someone measures to the top of their head that's it.

Those are copouts

It was in the run-up to the 1992 Olympics that the world finally learned what the cognoscenti had long suspected -- that Charles Barkley was more like 6-4 5/8 than 6-6, and Magic Johnson closer to 6-7 than 6-9.

In the early 90s Barkley was very trim his head was no where near as fat as it is now. Again look at the top of his head the actual Peak it comes to a point not flat not round very much comes across as six-foot-six at that point in time.

@Duhon: I’ve seen the one that Rob posted once where they knocked two inches off everyone’s heights. That one I don’t believe because Barkley and Jordan aren’t 6’4” flat and Pippen isn’t 6’5 Bird isn’t 6’7”. But Then I’ve seen where they specifically said that they measured some players and that Barkley was one of ones who volunteered to be measured and that is where the 6’4 5/8 or closer to 6’4 5/8 comes from. Magic supposedly was another who measured. Now Michael Jordan. I’m not sure where his 6’4 7/8 came from. It’s possible there at the Olympics too. Unfortunately nothing is concrete but the measurements for all three guys seem to add up to what they’ve been attributed. I do think that if Barkley measured that height that it was his peak afternoon height. He wasn’t a flat 6’4” but a minimum 6’4.5 guy which was how Moses Malone Danny Ainge and Dan Majerle also described him. Now I will say Barkley’s eye level may have led to some thinking he was only 6’3” range or 6’4 flat but a weak 6’5 range 6’4.5-.75 I could believe.
Duhon said on 2/May/20
@ Canason does anyone have citations or links for these Olympic measurements? That 1992 roster in current sources seems to be all listed with their NBA heights as have been the subsequent Men's basketball team's sent to the Olympics. I think the Olympics has almost always just gone with reported heights. Usain Bolt is probably not exactly 6'5" but that's what he gets listed at by the Olympics.
Shinbats said on 30/Apr/20
He definitely doesn’t inflate his height. He’s always noticeably taller than 6’3”-6’4” guys. He’s had a hip replacement as well. Id say 6’4.75” is the right measurement for him.

He should to be downgraded back to 6’4 3/4, one of his claims; or 6’4 5/8, his Olympic measurement.

@Canson I rarely disagree with you but i have to disagree with you calling Silver 6'3" max. In all his nba draft photos he has towered players who measured 6'1" to 6'2" barefoot and usually those are early morning. Hes looked taller than most guys who measured 6'3". I'm confident that Silver measures at or very near 6'4" barefoot early in day and never falls below a strong 6'3".

@Junior: I don’t trust the mugshot though. I believe 6’4.5 because others have said the same around him. 6’4 5/8 is what he measured

The fact Barkley was looking downwards towards a camera tells everybody the mugshot adds height. Only if it was at the top of his head would it be accurate.

@Canson I don't trust those mess up description of Barkley's height, too much of version all in between from 6'4 up to 6'6 and Tiger Woods even call him 6'4 on a good day pal that is so wrong when Barkley easily had Tiger over 5" make a shame of 5'11 Tiger out of 6'4 good day Barkley. LOL. Click Here a mugshot of Barkley stand stick to wall facing front right at 6'7 which prove him isn't under 6'6.25" barefoot that i can even buy him 6'5. So 6'4 3/4 absolute low is probably hardly missed. 6'4 1/2 sound too low for him and from the past sometimes he even look taller than Jordan and next to Hakeen he doesn't look below 6'5. Losing height now is still a myth on Barkley, he just doesn't look any shorter than those guys listed 6'5-6'5.25" by Rob.

@Shane: Cooley did say that he hung out with Sir Charles and that he was only “about an inch taller than he is. These days I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Barkley dipped from the height he was (6’4.5 ish) to around my height which is not much considering his weight and also his health with hip replacements
Canson said on 26/Sep/19
@Shane: he was saying that they make up measurements at times too. I assume he meant for his that it was 1/2” more than his normal measurement as he has always claimed 6’3” when I’ve heard him talk. I vaguely remember one measurement for him being a flat 6’3” I believe. A buddy of mine met him and he said Cooley is the exact same height as he is at 6’3” (6’2 7/8 these days at 60 some odd years old). 1/8” isn’t noticeable. But you’re observant! The half to me would also mean morning measurement. But I’ve met Vernon Davis (6’3.25 combine) and while he still looked around 6’3” in person, that’s the absolute most. Maybe something like 6’2.75 and maybe had slight footwear adv that I didn’t realize. Or is 6’2 7/8 at a low and that would make it tougher. I guessed prob 1-1.5” between us tho. Then again this was years ago. Davis is taller than Rock lol and he claims 6’5”. The same 6’2 7/8 buddy met Rock and said he wasn’t more than 6’2” barefoot. Said about 1” between them. He may have still measured 6’3” flat when he met him too as he was full 6’3” when we all measured back in 2016 I think

@canson im saying maybe a teammate was for example 6'5.25" and just went with 5 as a comparison to barkeley and that could potentially skew it the only reason I mentioned the extreme low thing is I know some people at the olympics get measured after competing and that could increase the chances of either hitting an extreme low or compressing your spine in a way where its hard to fully extend and get the most out of a measurement. I dont know it seems like your against that possibility .75 would make sense with pretty much all of his measurements

Magic also got measured and was what he usually is. I doubt either one of them is measured at an extreme low. As for the teammates, if it were one then maybe. Several of them said the same thing though so I don’t believe that to be the case

I’m not seeing how they discounted potential fractions though. They spent a considerable amount of time around him so they had an idea of how tall he was. While I don’t think he was 6’4” flat, 6’4.5” possibly or 6’4 5/8” and they rounded down

@canson
@christian
the original reason I made that comment is because I was just curious if he was measured before or after a potential workout. I could be wrong though. also you can still get guessed at 6'4" at the .75 mark especially if you have a footwear disadvantage. I dont know I just dont think you guys should discount the possibility he was .75 at his peak though I think we can agree hes not 6'5" plus like others say

I think it’s far less likely that he would be guessed 6’4” as regularly as he does if he’s 6’4.75” at a low. I’m typically guessed taller than I am. Usually 6’5” especially if I’m in a pair of thicker sneaks 1.25” where I end up around 6’5.5” this despite only being 6’4.25” in reality. His teammates also say he’s closer to 6’4” such as Moses Malone Dan Majerle etc and his coach said he’s under 6’5”. As for footwear disadvantage, I often see Barkley wearing thicker footwear than others in pics
Canson said on 2/Sep/19
@Junior: Barkley can look taller often to tell you the truth. But he did only measure 6’4 5/8” during his career
Questioner said on 1/Sep/19
@canson
@christian
the original reason I made that comment is because I was just curious if he was measured before or after a potential workout. I could be wrong though. also you can still get guessed at 6'4" at the .75 mark especially if you have a footwear disadvantage. I dont know I just dont think you guys should discount the possibility he was .75 at his peak though I think we can agree hes not 6'5" plus like others say
Canson said on 23/Aug/19
@Christian: I think Jordan if Rob doesn’t believe the 6’4.5 should give him 6’4 7/8 since that is at least something he did measure along the way

@Rob: I think he rounded down to 6’4.5. Vanessa said she measured him at 6’4.75
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Aug/19
I don't bother people think Barkley is below 6'4 3/4, i still see him as a solid 195cm guy and he can pull off 197cm with Jimmy Fallon and Gabrielle Reece in the past.
Canson said on 23/Aug/19
And here his former coach with the Sixers says that he’s under 6’5” at 17:39. He’s likely not more than 6’4.5 peak

Canson said on 23/Aug/19
@Christian: It would not surprise me at all if that wasn’t even a low for Barkley in his prime. I don’t know if it’s his footwear that he wears but people who met him in his prime guessed him as 6’4” at times. My guess is peak height was a low to mid 194 range right around 6’4.5”. Maybe he lost an inch with all of his weight and was a little less but he honestly looked short for a power forward on the court. I’ve watched him play up close when I was younger and saw him from a pretty good distance in philly before and didn’t get the impression that he was anything close to 6’6”.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 22/Aug/19
@Rob
If you're gonna put Barkley at 6'4 7/8", then you might as well put Jordan at 6'4 7/8" as well, since he was measured at that. There's no way that Kobe's only 6'4.75" yet Jordan's a full 6'5". The latter's definitely not 1/4" taller than the former.
Editor Rob
Well Kobe seems to even think he's 6ft 4.5, so he's already getting a 1/4 inch upgrade 😋 3/8ths is pushing it 😮
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Aug/19
@Questioner
Even if his 6'4 5/8" measurement was taken when he was at his extreme low (which I doubt), his normal low would been no more than about 6'4 7/8" or at most 6'5".
Canson said on 20/Aug/19
@Questioner: the 6’4 5/8 more closely aligns with what former players (opponents) and teammates have described. Dan Majerle is an example then Joe Klein Moses Malone. In addition, Chris Webber was 6’8/6’9 barefoot and he looks 4” taller. I’ve always suspected Webber was around that being he wasn’t any taller than Peja Stojakovic and was said to be that by Mo Cheeks when he played. Also Spencer Haywood commented that he wasn’t as tall as he expected him to be when he met him. And also to add, I doubt an Olympic measurement is at an extreme low. It’s probably closer to a “normal” low than a combine measurement. Notice I said normal low because the two are different. “Normal” means the height someone would measure on a normal day whereas an extreme low is not something you hit every day. Prime example I’m 195.7cm out of bed on normal sleep or 195.5 on less or 195.9 on extended which is a touch over 6’5”. At a normal low I’m only 193.8 or even a mm or two less (6’4.25) on a day when I hit the gym or if I am on my feet more that day. However, my extreme low is more like 193.1 which is essentially a solid 6’4”. Meaning I would lose 3/4” or 2cm most days whereas at an extreme low which would be after being on my feet all day I’m an inch shorter at a solid 6’4”.

As for Barkley, knowing people who have met him, their estimates agree more with the Olympic measurement and some even say he’s closer to 6’4” than 6’5”. The best case was one guy who was a scout and met him in his prime and another guy who met him with the Rockets and golfed with him as well as a former boss that I worked for. The former was 6’2” and said Barkley was 6’4/6’5 best. The others said 6’4 and 6’4/6’5. I’ve only heard one person say they thought he was 6’5” in person and that was from a 5’7” guy that met him and wouldn’t be able to tell as easily as the others were all well over 6’0” tall 6’2-6’5”
Questioner said on 19/Aug/19
@canson I am very surprised no one has mentioned this. I do think the 6'4 &5/8" measurement is real but ive always wondered 2 things 1. the less important thing did he have imperfect posture when measuring its happened to me in the doctor and when I asked to remeasure I got half an inch 2. if he measured at the Olympics is it possible it was an extreme low maybe he did a heavy workout and not only was at his low but his back could have had the sort of compression that would have made his spine a bit improper and hard to stand at max potential I dont know
Canson said on 27/Jul/19
That 6’4 7/8 is no more “official” than 6’4 5/8 at the Olympics. If people think he’s 6’4 when they meet him, I doubt 6’4 7/8. 6’4 5/8 at a low is the most he was at his peak. But of course, in an attempt to keep the other overlisted celebs and athletes the height they’re listed, “there is no proof of his 6’4 5/8 measurement”
Canson said on 25/Jul/19
I think 6’2 is best case for Rock 6’4 1/2 for Barkley
Punjabaprizonmatch00 said on 24/Jul/19
Barkley is half a head taller than the rock that’s at least 3 inches. Probably 3.5” inches taller than Rock. I think Barkley is 6’5” and The Rock is 6’1.5”-6’1.75”
Roderick said on 18/Jul/19
Honestly Im not gonna sit here and pretend that Barkley didn't make The Rock look 6'1" but Barkleys mugshot showed him at 6'6" which is a shoe height. Barkley had a footwear advantage over the Rock in those pics.

6'2" vs 6'4 7/8"
Canson said on 2/Jul/19
@Junior: footwear is similar with them but Barkley may wear an orthotic in the picture like you said. So 188 and 194-195 still isn’t impossible
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jun/19
@Canson It's easier you can suspect 194.6cm Barkley wear orthotics given 6mm with solid 3cm shoes on and The Rock had just solid 3cm shoes to make that 7cm.
Canson said on 27/Jun/19
@Space: I’m wondering because Ndamukong Suh measured in at 6’3 7/8 at the combine which equates to an afternoon height of 6’3.5 and he also looked 2” taller than the Rock but both that pic with Suh and Rock and Conan and Rock could be favoring the other two and may just be 1.5”. I have Barkley an inch taller than both of those guys
Canson said on 26/Jun/19
@Junior: but Barkley only measured 6’4 5/8 in his prime and not sure if that was even a low. Danny Ainge said that Barkley was 6’4.5 and Dan Majerle said he’s maybe 6’5 probably 6’4 which means 6’4 and change. I think Barkley has some advantage possibly with posture as a 6’2” Rock with a 6’4.5ish guy (current) would be a bit less but we see how Rock stacks up to Shaq too
Space said on 26/Jun/19
The fact that Conan O’Brien gets edged out by 6’4” guys just adds to my point that The Rock is not even 6’2” because there’s a good 2” height difference between a 6’3.5” Conan and The Rock...

Also when I said 5” difference between Barkley and The Rock it’s because The Rock looks puny next to Barkley. If we are very specific, there’s a solid 3.5” height difference between 6’4 5/8” Barkley and The Rock. This puts The Rock at 6’1 1/8” next to Barkley.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jun/19
There is like 7cm between The Rock and Barkley. If The Rock is 6'2.5" now would make Barkley 6'5.25" when it is impossible then The Rock would be 6'2 and Barkley stay on 6'4.75" but some thinks that Barkley is ridiculous low at 6'4.5" then Rock is 6'1.75". For me i wouldn't go under 6'4.75" yet. Maybe a few years later it could happen but not now. Click Here Interesting that 6'4 peak DDP looking 1.5" below Barkley. Maybe Barkley wear cowboy boots?
Space said on 25/Jun/19

In the picture above:
- Even if 6’4 5/8” Barkley is only 3” taller than The Rock, that would put The Rock at 6’1 5/8”. However, I think Barkley looks more like 3.5” inches taller in the picture which puts the Rock at slightly over 6’1”...
Canson said on 22/Jun/19
Barkley is not 5” taller. That’s about a 3” difference in that pic assuming both are standing straight

Barkley looked 5” inches taller than a weak 6’2” Dwayne Johnson. So either Barkley is 6’7” or the Rock is 6’1” max...
Canson said on 16/Jun/19
@Junior: I have him at 6’3 and Barkley 6’4.5 unless there is footwear advantage. For the record he never claimed 6’4 5/8. He measured that
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/19
@Danimal 5'9 3/4" Barkley had 1.5-1.75" on a current 6'3.5" Seagal. 6'5.25" is max not 6'5.5" and we don't know if Barkley had more shoe advantage than Seagal. There are too many version of height claim from CB himself like 6'4 5/8, 6'4 3/4, 6'5, 6'5.5". For me i can go with 6'5 and i think Seagal is only 6'3.25".
Canson said on 12/Jun/19
@Danimal: I don’t understand why you believe Conan when he says that he was 6’4.5 but you don’t believe a very specific measurement of 6’4 5/8 for Barkley. Conan was never measured officially so if anything he could be claiming his shoes. And Seagal has lost height when he measured with barkley. He was not 6’4”. Rob even guessed him less and he is only about an inch shorter or 3CM less than Barkley. Seems like you pick and choose what you want to believe. Barkley was only about an inch taller than a peak 6’3.5 Conan

@Sotiris: Omar May even be a bit over 6’5” and Lewis no guarantee that was even his low but close enough. I don’t see him below maybe 6’4.5 or 5/8, but that’s exactly what I’ve been saying all along about Barkley. Barkley measured 6’4 5/8 when he played so I don’t understand how he is taller than he measured. Lewis is slightly taller than Barkley is today and while I can’t see Watt’s footwear, Barkley appears to have thick shoes in that pic and still isn’t as tall as Watt (a morning measured 6’5 3/8). It wouldn’t surprise me at all having had hip replacement and being 56 years old and obese if Barkley is only my height today 193-194 and peak 194-195. It’s very silly and foolish on this site why people try to upgrade celebrities. People are seriously saying that he was taller than a peak Hogan? I don’t put a 1970s Hogan under 6’5 yet Barkley has never measured a full 6’5. He’s claimed 6’4.75 6’4.5 and has - 6’4 1/2 and 6’4 5/8 and a supposed 6’4 7/8 which I’ve only seen on this site and not so sure it’s even a real measurement. Numerous people I’ve heard met him say he’s 6’4 or at most 6’4-6’5

The 6’4 7/8 is no more official than 6’4 5/8 that he measured in 1992. In fact that may be the same measurement with a number (7 instead of 5) that was mistaken. A 6’4 7/8 guy at a low won’t get mistaken for being only 6’4” by other basketball players who are close in height with him that he spends a lot of time around.
Canson said on 20/Apr/19
@Viper: I am still not convinced about the 6’4 7/8 for him. There is no “official measurement for that one”. And yep i am saying it because of all of the excuses that we see on this page about 6’4 5/8 not being official yet he did measure that at the Olympics. He said himself below that he was about 6’4.75 when Chick Hearn says he wasn’t 6’5” so it’s likelier that 6’4 5/8 was the measurement. To my knowledge, Jordan had that measurement at some point (likely at UNC or early morning some other time). Barkley was 6’4 5/8. In his prime he was likely Max 6’4.5 but I’ve seen and heard people who have met him that have said he’s closer to 6’4 so I don’t see anything more than 6’4.5. Now it’s possible he loses an inch throughout the day with his weight etc

Canson, I thought the Martin twins were 6-6 until I saw they were measured at

They look wayyyy taller than Barkley physically.
Canson said on 19/Apr/19
@Viper: I don’t see any reference to 6’4 7/8 other than the magazine article that Rob used. That is not an official measurement and could even be the 6’4 5/8 with a mistake on the fraction. Of course, people argue against the measurement at the Olympics just because the 6’4 7/8 says “Official” on it which is BS and you know it as well just that everyone wants Barkley to be taller than he really is. We both know if a guy is 6’4 7/8 at a low that he would always be guessed 6’5 not 6’4/6’5 like you indicated as well. And to date, the NBA does not measure to the 1/8” (1/8 increments). Barkley states that he is about 6’4 3/4” most places. I do see what you’re saying as they could be different times of the day but I’d be more willing to say that 6’4.75 was his combine or even 6’4 5/8 and he rounded up and that 6’4.5 could even be his low.

I am starting to believe that Barkley is trolling people with his height claims. I just saw a pic from a few years ago and he was at least 10 inches taller than a 5'9" listed Ric Flair.

Maybe there was some height gained because of a taller photographer but I don't believe that this guy is anywhere near 6'4" flat or even 6'4.5"

More like a big 6'5" guy when standing tall, this is one guy I would love to see get measured.

Canson said on 25/Mar/19
Mason was described as 6’5-6’6” at several points during his career by commentators and teammates. He also was not as tall as Carmelo Anthony. And to say that he and Rice are exact is hard to do when the difference is around 1/2” or 2cm possibly because There is no good pic of them standing back to back or beside one another. You would have a hard time seeing it otherwise. If we are talking about A 199ish Rice, then Mason being 197 is not unfathomable since something as low as 2cm difference can really go in either guy’s favor unless you have pics of them back to back or a good one of them right next to each other

@Height: sorry but did you really just say that 99% of my pics are bad? Go look at your pictures below that you posted on Larry bird’s page and Barkley’s. They’re beyond atrocious and your pic with Smith isn’t far behind. Everything you just said about me is exactly what you do in reality. Nothing I’ve posted is even in the same basement as those pics.

Looking at Manning with Barkley, that honestly could look more. I simply went eyebrow level but Manning has his forehead tilted. His head looks longer than average. Seeing them play in a video just now, I put the difference 4.5-5” between them. Manning was not as tall as Kevin Willis and Willis was 6’10” barefoot

Canson said on 20/Mar/19
I don’t know for Richmond. Just because it says that he is 6’4” does not mean he is. As Rob has mentioned, height varies throughout the day. So it’s possible Richmond is only 6’3.5 as well. Sprewell and Mullin May have an inch but it could only be half. Or Richmond could’ve been rounded up to 6’4” from that figure. Either way, Barkley’s 6’4 5/8 is more precise and believable. Yes, It’s possible Mullin is the full 6’5” and there is a possibility that Mullin and Jordan are the same height at 6’4.5. But Barkley and Jordan are also the same height as Jordan has also acknowledged before. Maybe they’re 1/8 apart 6’4 5/8 vs 6’4.5 as the measurements suggested, but that’s still the same height because they’re pretty much the same. None of us here, no matter how hard we try, can see 1/8” difference between two people. It’s hard to see anything less than about 1/3” honestly. 1/4” is possible but the pic has to be flawless or the person judging must be right in front of the two standing back to back and it has to be literally clear cut meaning no hair on head barefoot, etc. as for Sprewell, he said in a quote when he played for the Knicks in response to Rick Pitino calling him 6’6” (exaggerating his height after the Knicks beat them in either 98 or 99) “I’m 6’4, I appreciate the extra inches”. He didn’t need them on Sunday as the Knicks came out victorious. Having seen Sprewell next to other players that’s how tall he looks on the court with other knicks such as Houston and LJ when they played. Houston measured 6’4.75 in reality and looks exactly that next to Carmelo Anthony who is close enough to his pre draft measurement in person. Best case 6’6.25 worst solid 6’6”. Houston was taller than Sprewell.

As for Barkley being taller than Mullin, is he really? I don’t know. In the same picture, Magic Johnson who Rob lists 6’7.5 is also 3.5” taller than Barkley. That part of the picture was, of course, not addressed and probably won’t be addressed on this page because it proves that Barkley really only is what people say he is. He measured 6’4 5/8 at some point in the day so he’s not taller than that measurement as it occurred at 29 years old for the Olympics so it was done by a professional. Barkley was also already well on his way to a hall of fame career in 92 having played 8 years in the league so he would not have needed a boost to his stats like players at the pre draft or combine may receive. It’s likely that that is his honest measurement. As Well, people already knew at that point around the league, based on common sense, how tall he actually was barefoot. They knew he wasn’t 6’6” or even 6’5” by then so 6’4 5/8 was not much of a surprise to anyone. The only real argument on Celebheights is was that measurement his low for the day? since this site uses afternoon heights or is supposed to be based on that. As for the pic with Mullin, it could be that those standing further back may have an advantage. if Mullin is shorter than Barkley then He may be shorter. But it also means that Magic is 3.5” taller than Barkley in the same pic so if Rob lists him 6’7.5 then Barkley should be listed no higher than 6’4”. If we want to accept that Mullin is shorter than barkley then we would have to accept that 6’7.5 (if that’s his actual low for the day) Magic Johnson is over 3” taller than Barkley. Or it could be that Mullin is actually taller than Barkley or his height and that Barkley is gaining advantage since Magic’s advantage on him is more pronounced because of all of that. But We can’t just pick and choose and use one scenario out of the pic and dismiss the rest of it that doesn’t help the case we are trying to present
Height said on 19/Mar/19
Mullin is taller than Jordan, not by much but taller indeed. I am not quite sure about Sprewell's height, or what picture did you look at, but Mullin was always 1 inch taller than 6'4" Mitch Richmond: Click Here
Canson said on 19/Mar/19
@Viper: agreed. the same people make the same type of excuses. It’s always that Barkley downplayed his height for better perception or to make his accomplishments better or that others such as Majerle and Ainge and Joe Klein Chick Hearn Michael Jordan etc have all said that he’s that height range and are “conspiring”. That’s ridiculous. Then of course the pictures always favor Barkley. Hate to say it but the ones where he looks around his height are the better pics because that’s what he actually is.

It’s similar to kevin Durant. Likely is 6’9” or a hair over but is said to be 6’11”. He’s probably not even a full 6’11” in shoes an hour out of bed. Barkley was probably not a solid 6’4” peak but prob 6’4.5ish at a low and rounded down to 6’4”.

6’9” Danny Manning and Barkley that’s over 4” between them. Barkley was likely 6’4.5 peak at a low or at absolute best his Olympic measurement 6’4 5/8 peak which is a valid measurement but the “excuse” is always “that measurement never occurred” lol

@Viper: agreed. the same people make the same type of excuses.

Mullin only has 6’4” Latrell Sprewell by around half inch and is around the same size as 6’4.5 Michael Jordan. He could be 6’5” possibly but the pic appears off. Not to mention, look who is standing right behind Barkley. 6’7” range Magic Johnson who also appears Around 3.5” taller than he is. Magic could make Barkley look under 6’4” which we know that he isn’t. If Barkley really is taller than Mullin and Magic is even the height he’s listed here 6’7.5, it means both guys are max 6’4 and a weak 6’4”

While I don’t see him next to ceballos at all, He’s def an inch shorter than 196-197 Dan Majerle in the same clip.

If he was 6-6, why would he get mentioned at 6-4 so much, by people saying he looked it.

Not the people trying to make his stats seem more impressive.

He's certainly shorter than 6-6. Dan Majerle played with him for years and says 6-4-6-5.

At the beginning of this video he's basically the same or at worst fractionally shorter than Cedric Ceballos who is 197cm-198cm range: Click Here
