@Monkey Knees: he got the same thing Lebron did, Treatment. 5’11.5 morning height maybe and 5’11 afternoon. He is not much taller than Allen Iverson was
Monkeyknees said on 19/Nov/19
Obviously 5ft 11.5in, or thereabouts, is correct morning height. Not dissimilar to 5ft 11.25in Kemba.
Canson said on 7/Nov/19
@Shane: I never realized he was dropped last year. Some analysts and players who played against him say he’s only 5’10”. My true guess is that he’s 5’11” and that the 5’11.75 was out of bed and he ended up like Draymond Green measuring near his out of bed height at the combine where other guys may lose a 1/4” or so before being measured. Maybe he’s like 5’11 5/8 when he got his
Shane Gray said on 29/Oct/19
@Canson Paul had been dropped to 6'0" last year and now went back to 6'1" with a barefoot listing. This is one of the listings that blatantly exposes the new height policy. Hes nowhere close to 6'1" barefoot at any time of the day.
Rafael Bueno de Oliveira said on 29/Oct/19
I think 5'11 max.
Canson said on 25/Oct/19
6’0.25 was rounded to 6’1. I agree with Viper. Shoes in the morning
Canson said on 25/Oct/19

viper said on 23/Oct/19
He measured that in shoes
Johnson said on 23/Oct/19
Perhaps the small change was distorted and they meant 6'0.5 because nba lists him 6'1 now, officially
Jackson said on 22/Oct/19
Chris Paul’s new nba height has been upped from 6’0” to 6’1” !!! What the heck
Canson said on 22/Oct/19
@Johnson: apparently he’s still listed at 6’1
viper said on 22/Oct/19
Can't find the original source but this guy says 6-0.25

Click Here
Johnson said on 22/Oct/19
@viper source for the 6'0.25 ??
Canson said on 21/Oct/19
There’s no way he’s anything over 5’11”
Canson said on 20/Oct/19
@Viper: lol that’s crap
viper said on 20/Oct/19
He supposedly measured 6-0.25
Johnson said on 22/Aug/19
He met Barcelona football/soccer players!!!!
Canson said on 30/Jul/19
@Warren: I think 5’11” flat for his afternoon. Some players measure 1/2 or 3/4” taller. I think the case with the latter has more to do with the fact that 1/8” increments aren’t used or if they have possibly a shoe lift. But CP probably would edge AI by about 1/2”. Larry Brown and Lebron both said AI was 5’10/5’11
Warren said on 21/Jul/19
If draft heights were late morning measurements(AM9-11) or early afternoon measurements(PM1-3). His evening height most likely be a 5'11"-5'11.25"(180-181cm).
Canson said on 13/Jul/19
@KA188: some that met him here say he’s only 5’10 as did Kenny Smith. I do think 5’11 though. Allen Iverson at 5’10.5 is slightly shorter than him
K.A 188 said on 10/Jul/19
5ft11 at Most. .
Canson said on 8/Jul/19
@Junior and Frost: there was a poster here named Kroc and one called Baller FL below that both met him and said he’s 5’10. Now he measured what he did but see the pics with Jarrett Jack. He’s definitely over 3” shorter and I’ve met Jack more times than I can remember. I’ve played against him repeatedly and he’s 2” shorter than I am. I’d give him 6’2.25 at a low probably. Jack can honesty have 4” on CP3
Canson said on 8/Jul/19
@Junior: it’s very possible that he did dip 2cm. Remember if someone wakes up and immediately lays around before measuring that they will still be close to the top. But also remember that 5’11.53 could be 5’11.75 on paper. When it’s even a mm over they will round it up may even if it’s dead on half. So 5’11.53 could easily be 5’11 at a low. He really never looks more than 5’11” to me. I’ve seen pics of him with Jarrett Jack and that’s minimum a 3” difference if not slightly over the mark
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/19
@Canson how can he lost 2cm from 7am average time draft measurement? Steve Nash need to bring down 6'0.25" if CP is 5'11. 181cm is the worst. Sometime CP look his full 5'11 3/4 and most of time i admmit a little lower he look .25-.5" range.
Frost said on 10/Jun/19
@canson I don't think that's at best. A flat 5'11" is the lowest I could go with him. 5'11.25"-5'11.5" I can see being the better measurements for him in the afternoon.

He's definitely not 6 feet so I don't get the average guess.

Lowry is shorter than Paul tho.
Canson said on 8/Jun/19
@Frost: Paul is 5’11 flat at best
Frost said on 4/Jun/19
@sam Lowry is like a half inch shorter than Chris Paul consistently but oddly not much more than an inch shorter than Lillard. 5'10.75-5'11.25 is arguable for Lowry. Slightly shorter than drake as well. If he was listed here I think he'd get 5'11.25"

FVV is quite a way shorter from what I've seen.

Hey Rob can you please make a page for Kyle Lowry and Fred Vanvleet (PG’s on the Toronto Raptors).

Paul with 6’6.25 listed Carmelo Anthony. Melo is a legit 6’6” minimum and is leaning here.

Is he one of the few NBA players who measures under 6ft?

6-2 Akeem Ayers with Paul.

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Jan/19
Curious did Paul get his measurement 182cm on the dot and get round up at 5'11 3/4 or he did reach 182.2cm an exact 5'11 3/4. Because someone this height doesn't make change much through out the day from morning height maybe fraction below or 8mm, worst 1cm and i don't think he fall into flat 181cm trap if he was measure 182.2cm. My previous thought of him 5'11 3/8 now i could see he could be 5'11 1/2.
Monkey knees said on 9/Jan/19
Lillard 6ft morning height.
Paul 5ft 11.25in morning height.
Confirmed through kit work at moda centre.
Canson said on 24/Oct/18
He looks shorter than Lillard. Rondo is listed at 6’1” (he’s 6’0” barefoot) and is taller than CP3 when you saw the altercation they were in the other night. 5’11 tops
Canson said on 24/Oct/18

Monkey knees said on 22/Oct/18
Just under 6ft. Same height as Dame.
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
@Christian: it’s possible he got the same as Dwade or Damian Lillard. Ben Wallace is another guy whose pre draft was boosted. He’s admitted to being 6’6/6’7 before and he’s clearly at least 3” shorter than 6’9.75 measures Rasheed Wallace and is significantly shorter than an aged Bill Russell. And that’s if Wallace is actually that tall at his low. Although Wallace looks minimum 6’9.5 so I could see it. Either way, Ben Wallace ends up around that claim, not the 6’7.75 that the NBA claims he measured
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Oct/18
@Canson

If CP3's under 5'11", he could be in the same situation as Wade, where either he was measured 5'11.75" wearing shoes, or the 5'11.75" was an error that was supposed to be 5'10.75".
Canson said on 6/Oct/18
@Legit 6’2”: he likely is max 5’11” if not a little under. I think Lillard May edge him and I agree Lillard is at most 6’0”. He is not as tall as Derrick Rose or Kyrie or Curry or Russ. The first three are 6’1-6’2 and Russ is a strong 6’2”
Canson said on 6/Oct/18

More less same height as Lillard
Atleast CP3 is more honest about it
5.11 guy
Lillard is 6ft at max
Frost said on 24/Sep/18
Lillard and McCollum are listed 1 inch apart, Christian

😂😂😂
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Sep/18
@Monkey

It's insane how Lillard's billed 6'3" by NBA. I believe he's one of the most inflated players in the league.
Canson said on 18/Sep/18
@Monkey Knees: Lillard is taller than CP3. If Lillard is that low, CP is 5’10 which two posters below said as well as Kenny Smith. I have CP at around 5’11 but 5’10” is believable
Monkey knees said on 15/Sep/18
Same height roughly as Lillard. Dead on.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Aug/18
Has to be 181cm or just 1/8 lower at worst.
Canson said on 19/Jul/18
5’11 barefoot likely got a morning height
Canson said on 22/Jun/18
@Height: agreed
Height said on 21/Jun/18
Minus the 3/4: 5'11" flat.
Canson said on 5/Jun/18
@Fer: he does at times. He looks as tall (almost) as a 6’10 listed guy in Kevin Love. But a lot of guys listed 6’9” in the NBA measure 6’7.5 in the AM meaning they’d be 6’7” at a low which is where Lebron would fall around that mark maybe a flat 200cm if anything
Canson said on 2/Jun/18
Kenny smith called him 5’10/5’11 on Inside the NBA the night the Rockets got in a fight with the Clippers. He surely does not look 5’11.75 nor does he look 5’11.25 really assuming the former were Morning height. Looks similar to AI maybe minimally taller
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/May/18
I did give 5'11 1/8 lowest for Paul and i think 182.2cm might be a 1/8 round up to make it a 5'11 3/4.
Canson said on 16/May/18
Agree with frost. He is no more at a low than 5’11”
Frost said on 4/May/18
He ain't 6'0 come on guys
Canson 194cm said on 30/Apr/18
5’11 at a low
Canson said on 13/Feb/18
@Junior: that’s about how they look to me
Junior Hernandez said on 11/Feb/18
@Canson

CP3 def can edge out Iverson by half inch but not over. AI can look flat 5'10.5" with Kobe, but CP3 don't look under 5'11 next to Kobe.
Canson said on 6/Feb/18
@Junior: yea I can’t buy over 5’11”. He can look closer in height with AI who is 5’10 1/2-3/4 at his lowest
Junior Hernandez said on 1/Feb/18
CP3 need a downgrade at 5'11 1/8 by generous. I wouldn't go higher than 5'11 1/4.
Canson said on 25/Jan/18
he looks 5’11” max. Compare him to someone like Jarrett Jack or Allen Iverson or even Russell Westbrook. That doesn’t add up.
Dirkking667 said on 25/Jan/18
Looks 6foot.
Kevin185cm said on 25/Jan/18
182 for sure
Jordankkng said on 22/Jan/18
6foot flat I will give him
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 17/Jan/18
181 is right on the money.

Very talented for a bballer who’s not cleared the 6’ or 190 mark.
Canson said on 8/Jan/18
@Alex: I don’t have any proof that he is honestly. My opinion is he isn’t over 180 max
Alex said on 4/Jan/18
Canson he’s atleast 182cm
Canson said on 28/Nov/17
@Junior: he may not be over 180. at times can looks 179 honestly but others he can look 181ish. He barely would edge out AI i doubt. Maybe 180 AI 179.
Slim 185 said on 22/Nov/17
181ish imho, not a proper 6’ like Siddig and Neal.
Johnson said on 9/Nov/17
Look at him with Jay Z. They are close of what official listings say of both
Junior said on 8/Nov/17
Kobe make Chris Paul look like 180cm all the time. I start to wonder if the draft measurement was include thick socks and a few mm hair tip to round up players height since most of them atually look 2cm shorter than listing.
Chase said on 31/Oct/17
Everyone's arguing over 5'11.5 and this listing and I'm trying to get him put at 6 foot
Canson said on 31/Oct/17
This is a tough one Junior. I saw a couple people who met him say 5’10 range below like FL Baller and KROC. kROC was pretty accurate on his guesses but he’s 6’5 so may have been off by a bit on him. I’d say no way shape or form is he 5’11.75 at his lowest but he could be what you have him 182 morning 180 evening or 181 morning and 179 evening like Allen Iverson
Junior said on 31/Oct/17
@Slim 6

Agree. But Paul can be measure 182cm in the morning.
Slim 6' said on 24/Oct/17
Strong 5'11" downgrade necessary. More 181 area.
Jordan TK said on 22/Oct/17
There is no doubt that he's height is 5ft 11.7inches in barefoot and 6ft and 4/5 inches with shoes.
Canson said on 21/Oct/17
@Bez: Kobe is closer to 195 than 194. Melo is 198.5ish (met him in person) lebron probably more like 200. I agree CP3 isn’t more than maybe 5’10.75
bez said on 20/Oct/17
also I saw someone here giving Carmelo at 6'6 and Lebron at 6'7. No way, strictly. One is lying, I think it's Lebron
bez said on 20/Oct/17
can't believe there is only 12 cm (Kobe about 194) between him and Bryant. He is under that
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
Concur with James
James said on 19/Sep/17
The only way he'll reach 182.5-183cm is his shoes
James said on 19/Sep/17
Casually 5 ft 11
Peter181cm said on 10/Sep/17
He look 1.81m - 1.82m ;)
I give him 1.81m and half..
Animus said on 7/Sep/17
He might hit 5'11½ at his low. He's probably in the 181-182cm range and I personally think of the two figures he is closer to 182cm.
Canson said on 30/Aug/17
I'd say CP is max 5'11.

AI is 5'10.5
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 30/Aug/17
About 180-181cm, definitely not over 181cm though.
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Aug/17
Iverson has worse posture, but looks like he could have a fraction more footwear. I've always thought they were extremely close. CP3 could be a hair taller, but not much.
Canson said on 15/Aug/17
@Slim: I'm not sure how much taller tho. Looks like he's favored but AI may have the footwear advantage. He may be 5'11 AI 5'10.5
Slim 182 cm said on 6/Aug/17
He measures 181.61 for me concretely, remember rakitic got a 5'11.7 listing because his morning height is 183.5? Then this guys morning height would be 182.88(6') so I'd give the quarter inch downgrade. Hes a bit taller than Iverson: Click Here
john collin said on 1/Aug/17
6 feet without shoes he grew since the draft
Canson said on 17/Jul/17
5'11" absolute max can look same as AI 5'10 and change

I think he is 5'11.5"!
5'11.25 at noon. said on 26/Jun/17
I'd say he's between 5'11.5 and 5'11.75 barefoot
Canson said on 26/Jun/17
Agree with Howie maybe a bit weaker 5'11 tho. I can never tell who is taller between he and AI The latter 5'10/5'11 according to others such as players as well as his former coach Larry Brown
Howie said on 20/Jun/17
Solid 6'0 in shoes 5'11 barefoot

Solid 5'11, maybe a little more.
Canson said on 31/May/17
Christian is spot on. At 6'3" some guys that size spread well enough and wingspan high enough to play the 3. There are a couple who do from time to time whereas as classic 6'7" can play center in a pinch

Rob, whats an average height in the nba that you must be or should
Editor Rob: obviously the taller you are the more beneficial some aspects of the game can be, but there are still some good players under six foot...

I'm not sure what an optimal height is though.

-------

The optimal range is 6'3"-6'7" I feel. At that height range you're not too tall to be a Guard, neither are you too short to be a Foward. But the best height to be an overall skilled player might be 6'5" (I might sound biased because I'm around that height myself, but I'm actually not)

Carmelo is 6'6 not 6'5. I've met him. He is close enough with his pre draft. Kobe is 6'4.75ish by comparison. Also by comparison Lebron is a weak 6'7". (6'6 5/8-3/4). Love strong 6'7" chandler I agree with tho
S.J.H said on 27/Mar/17
To be honest sometimes i don't even see CP3 over 179cm and he look 182cm with those basketball sneakers on
Canson said on 23/Mar/17
Think SJH is closer, don't know what to claim. I don't think CP3 is that unless he's in shoes in the morning. He doesn't look over 5'11" and KROC and FL Baller (who is near that height) said he's only 5'10. My guess is he's weak 5'11 at worst
Don't know what to claim (5'11) said on 21/Mar/17
Click Here

I believe the guy in the beginning is described as 6'6 at 3:52 in this video Click Here

By that, Kobe is approx. 6'5
Lebron 6'7.5
Carmelo anthony 6'5
Tyson Chandler 6'11
CP3 6'0.5
Kevin Love 6'8
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@S.J.H: Duhon has a point where 5'11" guys especially if well proportioned sometimes even not easily pass for 6' tall especially with height varying. A guy who wakes near or at 6' and drops to 5'11-11.25 may say 6'0" either way and most people unless within an inch either direction and honest will take it at face value esp with the way perception of height is these days. You know too being the height you are. But I do agree esp with people having met Paul on this site that there's a chance he isn't really that height he's listed. I do know that the .75 is thrown around judiciously like you mentioned for Wall my buddy is a solid (almost can be considered strong since he barely falls below it usually 190.4 is his lowest), he said Wall is an inch to inch and a half shorter than him and he's met Wall more than once. He did say Beal was correct tho (he may have grown) or may not fall below 6-3. He actually said Beal may he slightly taller when he met him. But for Paul I saw where kroc and fl baller said he's 5'10. That looks short for him but they met him and one is close in height so possible he is
S.J.H said on 2/Mar/17
@Duhon

Question is chris paul doesn't look 6'0 and 5'11.5 both and honestly sometimes he only look 179 to 180cm so 5'10.75 could be possible at his lowest. Trust me a real 6'0 and a 5'11 can be tell by frame if you really looking more at it. I've know 2 legit 5'11 friend who doesn't look shorter than chris paul and our good friend were 6'0.25 look way taller than paul.
Duhon said on 28/Feb/17
S.J.H said on 24/Feb/17
Paul himself claim 6'0 but we all know he look nothing close and just 5'11 is bang on

To most people 5'11" and 6' does look close. Unless they have bad posture or weird proportions most 5'11" guys can get away with saying they're 6'.
Eagles said on 27/Feb/17

You know, I look in the NBA, and, of course, to see that it is 180.5 cm or 181 cm, nothing more. Just 5'11.

He can even look just 5'11 and change
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 28/Jan/17
"Chris Paul's Height is 5ft 11.25in (181 cm)"

His draft measurement was definitely very early in the day. He looks 181cm at best.

Hey rob
With details you have of my height (182.5 in the morning)
Do you think if I stand beside Chris, will he edge me out ?
S.J.H said on 25/Jan/17
@Mateus

Anthony davies was measure predraft at 19years old and 6'9.25 w/o shoes not 6'10. The 6'10 and 6'11 listing is not reliable that have change by anyone and in fact 6'9.5 kevin durant is not shorter than davies

Rollo Tomasi said on 2/Jan/17
Thought he was shorter...
Mateus said on 9/Dec/16
Rob di you see notice about NBA player Anthony Davis 23 years old Growth 1 inch? Is possible he was measured 6-10 now he is 6-11 ?
Editor Rob: Mateus, there will be a small percentage who manage some growth in early 20's.
184-182 said on 24/Nov/16
For a 181-182 guy, he always seems shorter than everybody else in commercials that he does (aside from the Hooper family commercials because of the other tall NBA players he's around).
Arthur said on 22/Nov/16
Hey Rob, would you say that generally athletes are measured before or after training? (on basketball, american football, soccer etc)
Editor Rob: Arthur, I believe most would be measured sometime through the morning up till lunch.
S.J.H said on 17/Sep/16
Saw some picture of chris paul with 6'0 bill clinton who had loose posture they look close in height. But i think clinton at most 5'11.5 and paul look 5'11.25
Wallace said on 5/Sep/16
Have met him in person as well being a frequent Staples Center Visitor. He looked the exact same height as me I'm five eleven flat
Brandon said on 3/Aug/16
If he got measured at 5'11.75" then he is 5'11.75". Obviously it was in the morning so he probably walks around at 5'11.5". Its actually pretty easy to look half an inch to an inch shorter than what you actually are. i'm 5'11" and I have been mistaken as being as tall as 6'2" and as short as 5'9".
Canson said on 20/Jul/16
I'd say he's at most 5'11.
Dawkins said on 15/Jul/16

If what ballerFL and KROC said is accurate (no reason to doubt) Paul's in shoes would've been moved to the other column. Nobody his height loses 1.5".
Canson said on 2/Jul/16
@Kbeagles: KROC is generally right more often than not but yes I agree nobody is 100% accurate. However FLballer met him in person (below) and said the same thing. My guess is he's at most a weak 5'11.
Canson said on 29/Jun/16
@md: I will try. But I heard it on TV I believe
Canson said on 29/Jun/16
@Kbeagles: I'm sure he isn't right 100% of the time but he did say a little under 5'11 that could be off and he could be 5'11 flat. But to KROC's credit he guessed people where it made sense
KBeagles said on 26/Jun/16
KROC isnt right 100 percent of the time. Nobody is.

Chris flat out looks over an inch taller than 5'10 minimum Reggie Bush. Paul is 5'11 minimum.

Paul wouldnt shrink 2 inches from his measurement.
MD said on 23/Jun/16
@Canson, if you could find that quote from him, that would be great. I'd never heard him say it.
Canson said on 22/Jun/16
@Rob: I wonder if this is the case of a shoe measurement getting moved over. He's said before he's under 5'11 and even Others have guessed him at that
EzioAuditore711 said on 19/Jun/16
Is 5'11.75" an out of bed measurement?

Yep, is possible 5'8.25 for Isaiah, but i don't think 5'8 flat.
Canson said on 27/May/16
@Clear: Isaiah himself says he's 5'8. He had an interview since he's been with the Celts where he said it and also in the clip below. I think they either did a morning measurement or they fudged it up like a lot of others

Paul said on 25/May/16
He is shorter, he is taller than Ai when they are together by a tad bit. But no one is exactly the same height.

Id say a tad below 6ft with shoes, AI is 5ft11 with shoes but not many people are billed as 5ft11
Clear said on 30/Mar/16
isaiah thomas is 5'8.5 if robinson is 5'7.75
S.J.H said on 12/Mar/16
Just a little estimate minimum height in cm for few nba players:

Chris Paul 181.5

Steve Nash 183.5 (Look this range next to 5'10.75 david beckham)

Blake Griffin 203.0

Matt Barnes 199.0

Lebron James 200.0

Kobe Bryant 195.0

Dwayne Wade 191.0 (Look 1.5" shorter than MJ)

James Harden 191.5

Stephen Curry 187.0

Derrick Rose 186.0

Kevin Durant 206.0

Chris Bosh 208.5

Tim Duncan 208.0

Kevin Garnett 211.0

Magic Johnson 201.0

Nice Robinson/Thomas pic!
plus said on 15/Feb/16
Nate Robinson 172,5 and Isaiah Thomas 174,5. Measured at draft with this proof photo, I think it suits perfectly that heights

MD said on 13/Jan/16
@plus, it doesn't, but I think that would show, then, that Thomas is mismeasured or measured early in the morning, as Robinson's height is even more well documented. Point is that neither of them is 5'9".
Canson said on 22/Dec/15
They throw .75 on a lot of measurements even if a person is lower in the range it appears. Ever notice we don't see .375 or .625 like you would in the NFL. I notice with draymond green. He doesn't look almost 6'6 esp on the court with someone like Shawn Livingston who supposedly measured just half inch taller than him. He's prob closer to 6'5 just like Alvin gentry said he's closer to 6!5 than 6'6
plus said on 15/Dec/15
@MD thanks for the info, in this pic it doesn't look like 3 cm of difference between them

MD said on 14/Dec/15
@Willes190, given how specialized the positions are in the NBA, it'd probably be better to ask an average for each positions since the height needed to make a great point guard and a great center are so far apart. The league wide average has been just above 6'7" since the 80's (in fact, the average in 85-86 seasons is almost identical to the 08-09 seasons), but forward and centers and skew the league-wide average quite a bit. For most positions, around 6'3" would be a solid height.
Willes190 said on 11/Dec/15
Rob, is 190cm short for a player in NBA ?
Editor Rob: barefoot, it might be a bit under average, but not hugely.
MD said on 10/Nov/15
@plus, not only could Thomas not be 176 cm, but he wasn't even measured at a full 5'9" at the NBA draft combine. He was measured at 5'8.75" without shoes, and definitely looks it. In fact, he's the shortest player drafted since Nate Robinson, who was measured at 5'7.75" without shoes at his NBA draft camp.
plus said on 7/Nov/15
What about Isaiah Thomas from Boston Celtics the shortes in the NBA, he is listed 5'9 , the same as Nate Robinson free agent currently. Isaiah Thomas don't look very short, he could be even 176 cm
lol said on 31/Oct/15
lol @ all you insecure clowns who think you can tell from pictures. He is 5'11.75. He was measured at 5'11.75. For the love of god stop with this bs and fakery.
S.J.H said on 17/Oct/15
Don't blindly trust the nba draftexpress height stated without shoes. Chris Paul is really not 5'11.75 and certainly look just 5'11 range with alot of evidence with other players. At the most he could be few mm over 180cm
MD said on 27/Aug/15
With 5'11.5" Jesse Williams:

I don't see much a footwear advantage for either of the two. Anyway, Chris certainly isn't any taller than currently listed, and to me, it looks like they are the same height if both were to stand ram-rod straight.
Bandjoe said on 24/Aug/15
No way the guy is a hair under 5'11.
Tunman said on 5/Jul/15
@Andrea
Maybe 5'11.25-11.5 depending on the measurement time.
@Modeus
Chris is roughly under Griffin's mouth that's more a strong 8" maybe 8.5"tops assuming he has a bigger head than average he's no more than 6'8 and 6'8.5" is rather in the morning.
Modeus said on 14/May/15
looks a strong 9 inches shorter than griffin
Andrea said on 20/Apr/15
So you rule out 5'11-5'11.25?
[Editor Rob: I can't see 5ft 11 flat.]
Andrea said on 18/Apr/15
Rob, could he be another case of a very early measurement? He really can look more 5'11 flat next to Kobe... Maybe 5'11.75 out of bed?
[Editor Rob: possible a 5ft 11.5 guy and nearer 6ft out of bed.]
b-mint1994 said on 31/Mar/15
There is no way he's under 5'11". Look at the picture MD posted of him with Riggie Bush. 5'10" is a joke.
KROC said on 16/Mar/15
Joakim Noah? He's a tad bit underneath 6'11 while Bosh is a strong 6'10. Chris Paul is 5'10.
Ozzy said on 2/Feb/15
I used to trust the combine measurements, at least more than any other measurements, but after seeing the all-star picture below with Noah and Bosh... I don't know anymore... Noah does not look like a near 7-footer in that pic or in game situations... Rob, your take?
G2 said on 28/Jan/15
The combine measurements aren't wrong.

They actually measured him barefoot and he was 5'11.75".

All of you people claiming he's more/less than this are way off base.
Ozzy said on 15/Jan/15
Best pictures so far (date, posture, perspective...)

Lillard: 6'3/6'1.75 (191/187)
Paul: 6'0/5'11.75 (183/182)

*Parker has claimed 186 himself, and has been listed at this by the French national team several times

Then consider this for Kevin Durant, next to Anthony Davis. Picture taken two months after Davis measured 6'9.25 (from last years All-Star game photo it really doesn't seem neither Davis nor Durant has grown that much, but they come across as really tall because of long limbs and small heads).

Blake Griffin at 6'8.5? Doubt it,seems much like an out of bed measurement.I would have thought 6'7.5 or 6'7.75 at most,but listed at 6'10.

Nuff said.. All y'all insecure guys saying he is 5"11 and below.. Really? .. You being short ain't finna make him shorter!
Crypto139 said on 2/Jan/15
Yeah MD that is true. He is exactly 180 cm tall on the combine page. It is just strange to see him listed just over an inch higher on his page. Some players are downgraded at 7/8 of an inch sometimes.
MD said on 28/Dec/14
Cyrpto, whatever they are listed at once they get on a team, the combines and pro day measurements are fairly reliable. As I said, Reggie Bush was measured at just under 5'11". This is not a secret.
Crypto139 said on 25/Dec/14
If Paul is 182 cm then Bush is not at his 6 feet even listing the NFL has him at. The NFL is strange with listings at times. Most of them are quite close but some are just downright strange. You have people like Bush, Steve Young, and Deion Sanders who are listed a bit above what they are. Then most are listed at where they should be. Then you have Adrian Peterson and Brett Favre who are listed under what they really are in my opinion.
ff4646 said on 13/Dec/14
chris paul probably is 5-10 3/4 or 5-10 5/8 during the afternoon...which is why he said he's 5-11 on a good day...some people are taller than others i the morning...common in people with longer torso's...I've measured 1 1/4 in the morning by the time afternoon hits I'm an inch or a little more than in inch shorter...
ff said on 13/Dec/14
ballerFL says on 29/Apr/14
CP3 is 5-10 without shoes..I met him last year and I am 5-11 and taller..just fyi

probably because they are measured int he morning int he combine and you can be half an inch to inch and quarter of an inch taller in the morning than afternoon

An interesting photo, here he is with Reggie Bush who was measured at just below 5'11" when he entered the NFL:

Crypto139 said on 2/Sep/14
Yeah I guess it is about right, but honestly his head looks about my size I guess. Though I was comparing him to taller NBA players. Though to most people I guess that is right.
Crypto139 said on 31/Aug/14
Hey Rob what is his head length you think. It looks kind of small I think. Well atleast compared to other basketball players. So what do you believe it is?
[Editor Rob: for his height I think it looks pretty average, I wouldn't have guessed it much under average anyway.]

KROC, a lot of people think their taller than other people when they are shorter or the same height. I know this guy that said he was taller than Adrian Peterson who measured 6104 which is 6-1 something and that's at the combine. Funny thing is he had a picture side by side with JJ Barea who is clearly less than 6 foot and he was the same height as JJ Barea who is really only 5-10 w/o shoes or actually he might even be an inch shorter than JJ Barea. The shoulders we're nearly level. I'm thinking Adrian is taller than JJ Barea and he's saying he's taller than Adrian lol
MD said on 2/May/14
@KROC,

Good. I was genuinely saying I'd be happy to see them, since I've never seen him look much shorter than he's currently listed.
KROC said on 1/May/14
@MD
Him being 5'11 is ridiculous. Ive seen him up close too many times to know better. I'll post some pictures Monday to support this claim.
MD said on 1/May/14
This simply isn't the case. If you have some pictures showing him at 5'10", we'd be more than happy to see them. He may not quite be 6'0", but anything under 5'11" seems ridiculous.
KROC said on 30/Apr/14
@ballerFL
Finally! Someone who gets it. The only way Chris Paul would see 6ft is by standing on a telephone book. Allen Iverson is the same.
ballerFL said on 29/Apr/14
CP3 is 5-10 without shoes..I met him last year and I am 5-11 and taller..just fyi
fred said on 31/Jan/14
kroc that could be because your spine compresses and so morning height is not really accurate...when you are laying down you are taller, so if you get up and measure right away that's not really accurate because that's not the height you are most of the day...that's my opinion

Bosnia said on 6/Dec/13
I wonder, why he isn't listed at 6 ft 1 on NBA official site, since that is his height in shoes.
Bosnia said on 8/Nov/13
Sorry, that is my mistake then. I didnt convert right inches to cms, so I was of by 1 cm. Sorry.
MD said on 8/Nov/13
@Bosnia, you're confusing me (and it looks like Rob, too). Your' telling me what to type in, but then you repeat the height he's currently listed (5'11" 3/4). That's the only height I've ever seen him listed.

Again, get us the link to the pre-draft measurement. It's been some days, now.
Bosnia said on 7/Nov/13
Rob, what do you think about that 181 cm pre draft measurments? I also think that if he is 182 cm, he would be listed 6ft 1 in NBA, yet he is "only" listed 6ft.
[Editor Rob: he has a 5ft 11.75 predraft measurement, hence why I listed him at it. I've no idea about any 5ft 11.25 mention though]
Bosnia said on 5/Nov/13
@MD Just type "Chris Paul pre draft measurment". I just found it again but having problem tocpost it because Im on phone. It says Dwight Howard is measured barefeet 6ft9, Nate Robinson 5ft7.75, CP3 5ft 11 3/4 but Shaq is 7 ft 1 barefeet.
MD said on 4/Nov/13
@Bosnia,

Give us a link to the pre-draft measurement. That would be great.

Anyway, for reference (and both in dress shoes), Chris with 5'11.5" Jimmy Kimmel:

Click Here

Maybe 181cm is actually closer to his height, and the 182cm draft height was a measured morning height.

BTW, kind of off topic, but if Chris is 181-182, what does this make singer Miguel (far left) in this picture?

Click Here

I've asked, because I've seen this guy listed at 5'8" and there is no way, right?
Bosnia said on 1/Nov/13
Rob, did you read his predraft measurments? It writes there that he is 181 cm without shoes and 183 with shoes.
Viper said on 17/Sep/13
Since its a morning measurement hes more 5'11.25-5'11.5
KROC said on 7/Sep/13
@ Daniele 178cm is correct. It kind of makes me wonder how trustworthy some of these predraft measurements are...
KROC said on 7/Sep/13
I've met Chris before on two occasions at NYC's Rucker Park. He's 5'11 at the most. Hell he'll even tell you himself.
Dural said on 21/Aug/13
Kobe even claims to be 6'4", but was measured at 6'4.75". Chris Paul's offical NBA listing is 6ft and that's likely with shoes. Nowitzki claims to be 6'11" and is listed at 7ft. Wade is probably 6'3"
Lo sgozzatore said on 18/Aug/13
But Kobe is supposed to have been measured 6'4.75 and he actually doesnt look any taller than Michael Jordan...
[Editor Rob: remember photos can sometimes enhance or reduce one person. Look at Bryant with Wade and Chris. Wade being measured almost 6ft 4 and Paul almost 6ft I think is reasonable enough.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 14/Aug/13
Rob, why does he look so much shorter than Kobe Bryant?
Click Here
I mean, if this guy is 182, Kobe is at least 6'6!
[Editor Rob: Kobe could be 6ft 5.5 range]
Daniele said on 11/Aug/13
He's 178cm tall, he came here in Italy and stood next to De Nicolao (Cimberio Varese's PG) who is 5'11 and he was slightly shorter but he was in basketball shoes while Nicolao was barefoot.

This is right. Saw him in LA at his hotel. He was actually taller than I thought.
SolidSnake said on 1/Mar/13
CP3s wingspan is 6'4'', average for a NBA PG but his steals rate is insane. Somehow his reach is only 7'9''. Im 6' lowest height 6'2'' wingspan and mines 7'10''. I suspect some players slack 2 inches on reach for 2 inches more vertical leap. CP3 got a 38'' vertical which is still good for a PG.
AD said on 28/Feb/13
How can you tell the difference between 5'11.75 and 6 feet tall
Tony said on 8/Jan/13
@MD Well Barefoot yes I am quite sure the average is under 6'1, here is a quote from the w1kipedia page" Most current NBA point guards are between 5'9" and 6'4" (1.78 m -1.93 m) in height. In 2011 the average height of point guards in the NBA was just over 6'1" Just go to the w1kipedia page on point guard if you want to read it
A lot of players don't even have barefoot heights documented so I would think that would drive the average up(Rondo, Chalmers, and Jennings do not have barefoot heights documented but are all listed 6'1)
Tony said on 4/Jan/13
@Sak Yeh he is quite small for an NBA player, but for a point in the NBA, I'd imagine the average is probably around or slightly under 6'1(barefoot), However length is important too (wingspan and standing reach, one reason why the sport is mostly African American, they typically have longer arms)
SAK said on 4/Jan/13
He must feel really small when playing bb. But in daily life probably feels tallish.
SolidSnake said on 4/Jan/13
Nice add Rob, best sub 6 foot player in the NBA unquestionably
Tony said on 4/Jan/13
Best pg in the NBA imo. Fun player to watch
