6"7 is fair 6"8 is a bit of exaggeration
Andrew said on 8/Dec/16
A solid 6'7'' barefoot
Canson said on 6/Dec/16
As listed, and maybe even 199flat at his lowest. Was never even as tall as Scottie Pippen was.
Joe said on 5/Dec/16
6 foot 7 barefoot

Rob, you since you have rodman as 6'6.5 would that make scottie pippen at least 6'7 to 6'7.25?
Editor Rob
yeah he might be.

Malone is not over 6'8 and probably at carlos boozer range 6'7.75 , trust me he was like 1.5" shorter than 6'9.25 kevin durant
Slim said on 29/Oct/16
I'm 6'1.5 and I met Karl Malone 2 years ago at the airport for the LSU Alabama game. He is every bit of 6-8/6-9 today.

Listed correctly. Approximately the Same size when we met him as Phil Jackson is next to my six five buddy and me

Lol Danimal atually believe penn jillette as 6'7 , penn is probably legit 6'6 and rodman edge him out for sure a half inch
Canson said on 25/Jul/16
@Danimal: I agree with some of what you said. But Malone is 6'8 barefoot not 6'9 that's shoes. Don't know for Penn. Rob has him at 6'6.5 and Penn himself has said he's 6'6". I'm guessing he's at most 6'6.5 like Cudmore or Rodman. You're right for Hogan in his full true prime, I'd def say was prob a very very tall 6'5 and when he was in the ring with Rodman you probably hit it right on the money as he was prob on the decline and under 6'5 then. But Pippen was never a barefoot 6'8. He was Never as tall as Malone and didn't look taller than Magic Johnson either. I saw a picture with Jeff Sanders and President Obama and Sanders is listed 6'8 and taller than Pippen. I've even seen him described as low as 6'7" with shoes (I deduce that to mean 6'7.5 in shoes really or 6'7.75 because he usually looks a solid 6'7" like he was listed with the Bulls early in his career before getting the bump to 6'8 in Portland at the end. Jordan def agree with you on. 194-195 range and a weak 6'5.
Canson said on 25/Jul/16
@Danimal: I do agree with you on the height of Jordan for sure between 194-195 cm. but I've always heard PJ was 6'6.5 barefoot and Pip 6'7. I've seen a couple other pics where pip edges Worm and some where they are the same.

202 out of bed 199.5 at night. Of course 210 in his heels during his world famous cross dressing binges!!!!!
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
@Height: someone I know who met him described Rodman as around 6'6 1/2 (he said he looked 6'6 and change). This is a 6'2 guy who described him. Also see the pics below that Jdog posted that his friend describes him as 199cm
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
@Height: at his lowest (keep in mind a guy who wakes to 6'7 or more like Worm does), is gonna lose the full inch in a day. My guess is he is 199-199.5 at his lowest ( where Rob has him). Scottie Pippen and MJ both said Rodman is 6'6 and change. Pippen said 6'6 or so, MJ said he's a half inch taller than he is (of course MJ was referring to his shoe height). So i'd reckon that's 6'6.5 precise. MJ 194.3-195. I'd say there's 4-5 cm as well I think closer to 5 tho.
Height said on 15/Jul/16
@Canson

That's not a good picture. Rodman is a shoulder in front of Jordan and you can't see their feet/stance.

Either way, Rodman has always been on the higher end of 199 cm, not a flat one. He has always been about 4 cm, maybe 4.5 cm taller than MJ.
Dawkins said on 15/Jul/16
202 cm out of bed, 200 cm at night.
Canson said on 14/Jul/16
Rodman has two inches on Jordan. Again puts MJ at 194-195 range (around 6'4 1/2)

@Rampage: I think you nailed this one. I was talking to someone who has met him yesterday and they said he's around 6'6.5. This person claims 6'2 and looks it (near his lowest). I'd say prob is 202 out of bed and 199 at his lowest
Canson said on 1/Jul/16
I bet when he married himself he was 6'9 in his heels!
jajamen said on 21/Jun/16
Rob, how tall you reckon his father is?

Editor Rob
somewhere in 6ft range
Canson said on 25/May/16
@Ranpage: I have to agree with Height. I'd say 6'7.25 maybe out of bed and 6'6.25 at night. Easily would lose an inch at that height. Of course I agree with you as well!
Height said on 19/May/16
@Rampage everything you said is correct!

Out of bed: 201-202cm
Before bed: 199-200cm

I agree he's taller than penn jillette whose more like 6'5.5 rounded 6'7 and Dennis is more taller than 6'6.25 max
Yaspaa said on 27/Feb/16
He's taller than Penn Jillette.
Dawkins said on 15/Feb/16
199cm at his very least and he's a good 200cm/201cm during the morning!
S.J.H said on 11/Feb/16
Daniel cudmore was found out his 6'6.5 and he always apear like a 200cm big guy in pictures. Dennis rodman don't look really look as big as cudmore is the fact he could be a fraction under 199cm or right on 6'6
Ignacious said on 19/Jan/16
199cm at least with a 215cm wingspan!
Canson said on 16/Jan/16
Dre and J-Dog: I agree with both of you. He doesn't look 6'5 1/2 after seeing that pic J-Dog posted. I'd say prob more full 6'6 flat 198cm. That pic looks 7" diff with your buddy.
DRE said on 15/Jan/16
He edges all the guys who are about 6'5 1/2 like Drexler and Dr J by 1 inch. So I'd say 6'6 1/2 is accurate.
CLEMENT said on 26/Dec/15
MY GUESS IS 6'5 1/2"

He would be a fascinating subject for a case study on extreme growth in the later stages of puberty.

I have read that he was about 5'11" when he graduated from high school at 18. The interesting thing is that he was actually homeless for a while after high school and he began to notice that he was growing while he was living on the streets or with friends. He also described how he used to walk all night and sleep during the day. While he had played a bit of basketball and football before his growth spurt, he was not very good and therefore stopped and would not commence playing basketball till he began growing, if I recollect correctly. These circumstances make it hard to argue that his late growth was environmental in origin. He was most likely just genetically programmed to either have a very late or very prolonged puberty. I have all this information from his autobiography.
Tunman said on 5/Jul/15
KIm Jong is only 5'8?or even 5'7 assuming lifts?Quite incredible,he looks taller than everyone around.Of course North Coreans are probably a good 2" shorter than South Koreans and camera is always on his favour,still...I could have sworn 5'11 range at first sight.

Editor Rob: genetics and 'catch up height'? I don't know, it's a huge amount to gain after 18...maybe he also started doing some things which shocked his system into producing a lot of Growth Hormone and he exceeded his potential.]

So it is possible to grow far pass your growth potential like rodman but you need to find a way to make your body produce excess growth hormones?
[Editor Rob: well look at the giants, they ended up past their genetic potential by large amounts due to overproduction of GH.
Maybe certain people through lifestyle and exercise are able to maximise and even somehow exceed their range. It may explain some very tall people, noticeably taller than parents for instance.]

You know, I know a few guys who in their teenage years were very active swimmers, like 5 or 6 evenings a week and I think they grew to among the tallest in the year. One guy I know was fairly average until 15 when he shot up to around 6'4. He was a fitness freak and belonged to both swimming, rugby and athletics clubs. I don't know how tall their parents were, but there's definitely something to be said about very active sports guys and nutrition as after exercise you produce such hormones don't you? If your body is constantly revved up like that during puberty it's possible.
BigBoy said on 22/Jun/15
Rod man is 6' 6.5" (199.5 cm) in basketball shoes on court, right?
WAF said on 3/Jun/15
His father was described as "[...] the tallest guy in all of the Philippines and was the spitting image of Dennis himself" in this article: Click Here

Obviously Dennis had the genetics to grow tall. I also remember reading in his autobiography "Bad as I Wanna Be" that his sisters were all athletic and at least 6' tall.
RP said on 25/May/15
Jordan 6'4 7/8", Pippen 6'7 5/8" & Rodman 6'6 1/2" & Peak Phil Jackson 6'7 1/4" (Current Phil is 6'6.5" ) Magic Johnson 6'7 3/4" peak & Kobe Bryant @ 18 was 6'5 1/4" & is now 6'4 3/4" & has been since about age 33.

Also look at internet images... Kim wears thick elevator shoes consistently.
MrFish said on 27/Apr/15
Rob, how tall does Kim Jong Un look with his many pictures with Dennis Rodman? He's reported to be 5' 9", but he looks more than 9.5 inches shorter.
Editor Rob
the honourable Kim Jon at 5ft 9? Absolute blasphemous stuff!
6ft 10 and even then that is conservative!

Seriously...about 5ft 8 maybe...but don't quote me on that please.
Montgomery said on 12/Apr/15
@RobPaul, how it is possible he grew so much at age 20?

Rodman, Jordan, and Pippen are in many pictures together. What I can tell you is,Pippen is consistently 1.5 " taller than Rodman and Rodman is consistently 2" taller than M.J. If M.J. is 6-4 1/2", that puts D.R. at 6-6 1/2"and Pippen at 6-8"
pablo77bar said on 11/Apr/15
I think this list (199cm) it's correct
He loos like 3 cms taller than 6ft 4.75-6ft.5 Joe Manganiello
Height said on 9/Apr/15
@Thomas that picture is not a good one to compare heights.

Like i said, anywhere in the 6'6"- 6'6.5" range for Dennis is pretty accurate (that's what he measured out of college at 25 years old) and mantains a good difference (from 4.5cm to 5.3 cm) between him and MJ's estimated height:

Dennis Rodman: 6'6.25" / 6'6.5" (198.8 cm / 199.5 cm)
Michael Jordan: 6'4.5"/ 6'4.75" (194.3 cm / 195 cm)
Thomas said on 6/Apr/15
Rodman was and is more than 4 cm taller than Jordan!
Click Here 1,99 m insn´t enough, 2,01 m fits perfect now - with Kevin Nash (2,06 m), Jordan (1,95 m) and Ali Baba (1,98 m).

@height says on 7/Mar/15

No. Rodman was not even a single mm over 4cm taller than MJ. MJ was probably 196cm and rodman 200cm on the nose. Rodman a solid 6ft6.75 guy

Lorne said on 24/Feb/15
Well he was definitely about 2 inches taller than Hogan in the late 90's, this listing is perfect.

What's funny is that at one point both him and Jordan were listed 6'6 by the bulls, even though Rodman is at least 4cm taller!!!
S.J.H said on 23/Feb/15
I felt that rodman came a lowest 199.5cm and always in converse shoe makes him look a little shorter than people think. I still think 6'6 3/4 for rodman goes fair
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 22/Feb/15
Looked about the same gap between Rodman and Hogan as between Sid Eudy and Hogan.
Hogan didn´t look taller than 6´4.5" next to them.
height said on 4/Feb/15
Rodman height's is spot on at 6'6.5"

Pippen was officially measured at 6'7.5" (and some other sources said he was 6'7.75") Which is one inch+ (3cm-4cm) taller than Rodman
S.J.H said on 3/Feb/15
Rob, don't you consider 6'6'75 for rodman? He look closer to 6'7 than just 6'6.5
dietmar said on 1/Feb/15
Scottie Pippen is taller than Dennis Rodman. I think Scottie is 201cm and Rodman is 199cm. Here's Rodman with Larry Bird (206cm). I can see a solid 7cm difference there.

Sal said on 22/Jan/15
I think the key to this was Scottie Pippen. Scottie looked about 2" taller than Rodman but they are both listed at 6'8". I'm thinking Rodman was probably closer to 6'6" flat and Pippen maybe 6'7.5"
james said on 19/Jan/15
The NBA always listed rodman at 6'8 ..so I thought Michael Jordan was a legit 6'6 since rodman always looked taller than him ..Jordan was 6'5 with shoes on
1.89m said on 18/Jan/15
Bigger than Hogan,Hulkster was never 6-7"!! 6-5 max peak on Hogan.
Mathew said on 14/Jan/15
Yeah 6'6.5" seems about right for Rodman. Pretty close to a legit 6'8" on the court in shoes.
Fern194cm-192cm said on 13/Jan/15
Honestly looks closer to 6,7. I don't think you can list jordan at 6,5 when there is a 2.5 inch difference easy. I say 6,7-6,7.25. He also has an inch or 1.5" on 6,6 listed trace adkins. He is also about an inch taller than penn jilette. Don't understand the listing at all. I respect you a lot Rob and appreciate all your comments. Rodman always wears converse and doesn't stand straight that often. Trace wears cowboy boots and penn wears thick soled black dress shoes.

this page and elvis seemed to attract V-trolls, but he's reactivated.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jan/15
Is this new? Can't remember him being here before! Agreed on 6'6.5, probably just under 6'8 in basketball sneakers so not really a lie.
