How tall is Dennis Rodman

Dennis Rodman's Height

6ft 6 ½ (199.4 cm)

American basketball player who has played for teams such as Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs and Chicago Bulls. In 1998 he said "I'm 6-6" but also mentioned in 2011 that in high school was "A 5-foot-8 kid trying to live life, get a job and not go to jail or be dead" and then "All of a sudden I'm 6-8".

Even when I played I was getting rebounds against guys bigger than me, like 270, 280, and I'm like 6-6, 215, 220 and getting rebounds.

@Junior: I see 6’6” flat perhaps but not less
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Jul/19
@Canson I don't think Rodman ccame this low yet. He still look close to 199cm perhaps 6'6 1/4 now.
Canson said on 15/Jul/19
He probably was around this height at his peak. No less than 199. Today 6’6”
mrtguy said on 13/Jul/19
Rob do you think OJ has a bigger head than Rodman?
Editor Rob
No, I wouldn't say it was longer, because Rodman does have quite a long head really.
Canson said on 8/Jul/19
6’6 and change peak. 6’6” today
mrtguy said on 5/Jul/19
Rob, how tall does he look next to New Jack?

Editor Rob
If New Jack was close to six feet, he's 6ft 7

As listed
Spencer said on 21/Jun/19
6'7"
Canson said on 18/Jun/19
@Junior: that’s my guess too except I’d go

Rodman: 199-199.5 (peak)
Pippen: 200-200.5 peak (pre back surgeries)
Jordan: 194-195
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Jun/19
MJ 195cm
Pippen 200cm
Rodman 199cm

All at their lowest and if they have lost some height now its not much more than a fraction.
Canson said on 12/May/19
@ErikC: I think he was about 199 peak and 198 today. He was never as tall as Scottie Pippen
Erik C. said on 9/May/19
Again i think Rob has him listed perfectly. 6'6 1/2 today and perhaps 6'7" ish peak. 6'6"-6'7" range guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/19
I think he’s still around this today. Peak maybe closer to 6ft7
Canson said on 27/Mar/19
@MrTBlack: agreed
MrTBlack said on 19/Mar/19
@Canson

Strawberry’s mugshot says he’s 6’5”. 6’6” is probably his height with cleats on.
Erik C. said on 16/Mar/19
Dennis looks almost identical to my 6'6"-6'7" range basketball coach when i saw him next to donald trump compared to when i had a 6'0" friend stand next to him. I think he's 6'6" 1/2

@Jdubbz: 😂 😂

He married himself once lol

@Canson: Regardless of his height, I think we can all agree that Dennis Rodman is one beautiful specimen lol
Canson said on 17/Jan/19
@Sotiris: Strawberry is 6’5 not 6’6”. Baseball is just as bad If not worse than football or basketball with inflation.

Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Dream: for his peak I agree. Today he still has maintained most of his height but is probably more like 198.5 now a days. Most who meet him and comment on his height say he’s 6’6” whereas I know someone who met him years ago that claimed he was 6’7”. Then again some of the same years ago at 6’6” so likely in between the two. I would have him as around 199cm and Jordan as around 194.5 maybe take a mm. It looked about a 4.5cm or so difference between them
Dream(5'9.5") said on 25/Dec/18
@Canson I wouldn't go less than 199 cm flat. Dennis did look visibly taller than Hulk Hogan. (Then again, Hulk Hogan could be 'overlisted.)
Canson said on 19/Dec/18
I think if he dip get closer to 6’6 peak that it would be more like 6’6.3 (199 flat). He’d have been 6’7+ out of bed. Rob has him listed close enough peak
Canson said on 13/Dec/18
@Dream: he may have days where he could be a legit NBA Center depending on how much heel he has on that day with his dress of choice! Lol
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Dec/18
@Canson

I definitely agree with you. I also think ‘Worm’ (Dennis) would edge out Bo, but it’s not too much. I would actually be surprise if Bo pulls off looking taller (then again, he did that with Owen Benjamin, and I wasn’t expecting that).

If Dennis wore a wedding dress with high heels, then that would be a different story! 😂😂😂
Canson said on 10/Dec/18
@Dream: I would have Worm edging him but the difference wouldn’t be all that much. If Worm is only 6’6” today and Bo is higher than Rob lists him here (and I won’t completely rule that out for Bo), That could just be half inch or 2cm. I’d say best case maybe a full inch or 3cm
Dream(5'9.5") said on 8/Dec/18
@Canson

Holy S@#t! I saw some pictures of Rodman in his wedding dress!😂😂😂 He certainly did a good job promoting his book!

Click Here

It would be ‘interesting’ to see Bo Burnham and Dennis Rodman meet, one day!
Canson said on 7/Dec/18
@Dream: LOL! Yup he sure did. Happened maybe a week after his first championship with the Bulls following the 72-10 season. He did it to promote his book. I remember it clear as day lol. I remember Jordan once said that everyone thinks Dennis is 6’9 245 that’s with heels on lol. Jordan also said Dennis is really 6’6”. Rodman May have been 6’6 and a little change but MJ at 6’4.5 fits as Dennis was 1.5-2” taller than him

Dream(5'9.5") said on 5/Dec/18
@Canson Dennis Rodman in a WEDDING DRESS?! 😂😂😂😂 I need to see that!

What’s even more surprising is that Dennis Rodman joked around with Bo Burnhan by sending him a love heart on Instagram! (It would be very interesting to see Bo and Dennis meet someday!)

I‘m still convinced he’s at or around 6‘7“ flat.

Canson I don't see this paywall the NBA has
Canson said on 16/Nov/18
@Viper: I could see maybe 6’6.5 or 6’7” for Branch and 6’7” peak for Buck. Rodman maybe 6’6.25 but doubt a solid 6’6”. Remember Tracy Jackson. He was listed 6’6” but said by people who’ve met him to only be about 6’4/6’5
Nik said on 15/Nov/18
@ Canson - Yes, maybe Brande Roderick is 5'6", however I think she could even be slightly less! I certainly don't think that she looks 5'7" when compared to Dennis Rodman bearing in mind she is wearing high heels and Dennis Rodman is likely to be losing height!
viper said on 15/Nov/18
Branch did the last Maryland basketball game on ESPNU. He was saying the inflated listings like 6-10 for Bruno Fernando even though he measured 6-8.75.

He did say I'm 6-7 6-8 in shoes
viper said on 14/Nov/18
Rob needs to add Buck Williams. I'd be interested to see what he lists him at.

My dad even said to me once do you think Buck was ever really 6-8. I said he can look it.

He a bit taller in college than the NBA for some reason.

If Buck is a flat 6-7 IMO Rodman was never taller than 6-6.
Canson said on 14/Nov/18
@Nik: maybe she’s 5’6 range
Nik said on 12/Nov/18
5'7" looks too high for Brande Roderick!
Canson said on 10/Nov/18
@Brad: he claimed to be 6’6” and Jordan and Pippen both called him 6’6”. He’s gotta be 6’6” range
Canson said on 10/Nov/18
@Viper: I would say 6’7” for Branch as well. Buck at his peak was probably 6’7” too
Canson said on 10/Nov/18

Bradley said on 9/Nov/18
6-7 believe it.
viper said on 9/Nov/18
Lem Bias was 6-7 minimum. He was the same height as 6-7 Adrian Branch. Branch could have been a hair taller since he said he was 6-7 1/2 in an interview once.

Bias had 6-7 listings when he was recruited.
viper said on 9/Nov/18
Think Buck was 6-7.5 peak.
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
@Viper: I don’t think it was actually deleted. I remember Shane saying once that it’s behind a paywall on NBA.com still
viper said on 6/Nov/18
Canson is there any site you can find that has a database of measured heights for current college basketball players.

How can draftexpress delete all that.
Canson said on 4/Nov/18
@Viper: a guy listed 6’9 could be 6’7 range easily. Not sure on Elmore tho.
viper said on 2/Nov/18
To put that pic in perspective, Albert King was listed at 6-6 and 6-7
viper said on 2/Nov/18
Elmore 6-8 minimum
Canson said on 2/Nov/18
@Arch: agreed. I’ve always thought he was 6’6 range (since he claimed it during a game in the 90s). Likely a near 199 peak tho

@Viper: according to a buddy of mine he’s not 6’8. He guessed him about 6’6.5 but possible he underestimated him somehow maybe due to posture or if Buck lost some height. Buck is older than my buddy is and my buddy is still 6’7” at a low
Canson said on 2/Nov/18
@Arch: agreed. I’ve always thought he was 6’6 range (since he claimed it during a game in the 90s). Likely a near 199 peak tho

Buck with 6-5 Albert King and 6-9 Len Elmore. Click Here
viper said on 30/Oct/18
Buck Williams had to have been 6-7ish minimum in his playing days. He looks flat out taller physically than a guy like Rodman.

He looked an easy 6-8 in his high school senior team photo and next to a 6-2 teammate I know.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Oct/18
The sort of guy you'd definitely lock up your daughters around haha. I remember him on BB years back and I thought actually he only looked an inch taller than that fella from Goldie Lookin Chain who claims 6 ft 5.
Canson said on 21/Oct/18
@Christian: only Dennis Rodman lol! This was right after the Bulls won the championship in 96. He came out in a wedding dress and dressed as a woman with his hair. That was him trying to sell his book though at the time
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Oct/18
@Canson

Lol, how does someone marry himself?
Canson said on 17/Oct/18
@Christian: he was in drag (heels) when he married himself
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Oct/18
@Canson

I don't get the 6'10" joke.
Canson said on 13/Oct/18
6’7.25-3/8 out of bed
6’6.25-3/8 afternoon peak

6’10 when he married himself in 1996
Canson said on 5/Oct/18
@Jbrowe42: avg guess is almost always above what a person actually measures. Michael Jordan and Scottie pippen called him 6’6” as well. That’s his barefoot height 6’6 and change
Jrbowe42 said on 4/Oct/18
I still think he’s between 6‘6.5“-6‘7“ flat today. The average guess for him on this page is 6’6.87“, less than a 1/4 inch away from a flat 6‘7“.
Canson said on 19/Sep/18
Rodman hasn’t been 6’5” since he hit the growth spurt going into college. He’s still a full 6’6” mimimum
Canson said on 18/Sep/18
@Monkey Knees: Rodman is still a solid 6’6” Bare minimum. He likely was a strong 6’6” peak. If he wasn’t the full 6’6.5, he was likely a full 199cm or within a mm of it
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Sep/18
@Monkey knees He didn't lost that much of height not even half inch yet. If i take your words on Damien Lillard i would leave Rodman at 6'4 1/2 and 6'4 1/4 now. Kyrie Irving no higher than 181cm and Curry weak 6'0 plus Shaq prob solid 6'10 and Kobe 6'2 7/8 in real. I don't know if thats real..
Monkey knees said on 15/Sep/18
6ft 5in now. 6ft 6in peak. Nowadays, 5.5 inches on Lillard @juniorspicandez
Canson said on 11/Sep/18
@Viper: I respect Brad and like him but his claim is inconsistent. He said below that Rodman was a weak 6’7” and that he suspected he had Converse shoes not for sure. In addition, Brad also mentioned that he is 6’5.5 and 6’6 in the morning meaning if Worm has an inch on him or close to it, he’s likely 6’6” or slightly over (6’6” if footwear advantage). Rodman’s listing was changed to 6’6” after he admitted it during the 96 season with Chicago. Some times 6’6 some 6’8. Jordan also called him 6’6” in the video below as well as another video about him. Pippen also called him 6’6” or so meaning he’s not 6’7” because Scottie was taller than he was and MJ about 1.5-1.75” shorter at most
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Sep/18
@Jrbowe42

Then why would he admit to being 6'6" during his career?
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Brad: you don’t remain consistent. Before you mentioned that Rodman was prob a weak 6’7” and mentioned you weren’t sure what footwear he was wearing. You also mentioned that you were 6’5.5 at a low which is how he should be assessed. Rodman admitted above 6’6. Maybe 6’6 and change peak and 6’6” today
viper said on 9/Sep/18
6-6.5 peak.

He was never 6-7. Brad, the difference can be too hard to tell
Jrbowe42 said on 9/Sep/18
When he played he was probably 6‘8 in shoes, 6‘7 bare feet. Today he’s probably 6‘7.5 or so in shoes and 6‘6.5 bare feet.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Sep/18
6'7 is a shoes height. Rodman today 6'6 barefoot and peak was only a strong 6'6 1/4.
Bradley said on 5/Sep/18
Had me by an inch in same footwear years ago in Burbank. 6-7 easy max. Rob's '18 listing probably correct.
Canson said on 22/Aug/18
@Junior: Jordan has called Barkley 6’4 and 6’5 and said they are the same height so his 6’6” is not legit barefoot height
Canson said on 21/Aug/18
@Junior: Scottie actually called Dennis 6’6” just like Jordan did. Jordan called Rodman 6’6” to show how good a rebounder he is for being undersized. Rodman is a barefoot 6’6” whereas Jordan is 6’5.5-6’6 in sneakers. Jordan has said that more than once about Rodman. Jordan 194-194.5 imho 6’4.5. Pippen 200 Rodman 199

Click Here
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Aug/18
@Canson That is silly when Jordan always call himself 6'6 never heard of 6'5 claimed but calls Rodman 6'6. They were never the same height and i once remember Scottie Pippen say in an interview that Rodman and him were both 6'7 and Rodman weight a 10lbs heavier. Jordan in fact a big 194plus-195cm guy.
Canson said on 15/Aug/18
Here Jordan calls him 6’6” 220lbs again

Click Here
Canson said on 21/Jul/18
Jrbrowe is correct.
Jrbowe42 said on 19/Jul/18
He looked barely shorter than Scottie Pippen, maybe half an inch or so. I‘d say he’s 6‘7-6‘7.5 with shoes on these days.
Canson said on 5/Jul/18
@Junior: he may be under 199 now as I agree with Shane I could see somewhere around a Carmelo Anthony height 198 range today. He supposedly quit partying so maybe things will change
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Jul/18
I would rule out 199.5cm peak and flat 199cm now for Rodman. Another 5-10 years with bad liftestyle still going on he will dip into 6'6.
Canson said on 21/Jun/18
@Rampage: maybe 199 range peak or 6’6.5 at a low I could buy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/18
Interesting....

I suppose you could argue 200cm peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/18
Rob, how likely is 6ft7 peak?
Editor Rob
I'm not as convinced, given he's said 6ft 6 a couple of times too.
Nik said on 15/Jun/18
@ Batistataker - 🏏!

"Six six" like he says! - and the half! Not a penny less! 💰
Canson said on 15/Jun/18
198 range today
Peak 199.

Doubt he’s lost much height to be honest but likely is a flat 6’6”maybe 1/8” over today
Batistataker said on 15/Jun/18
1.9_
Canson said on 13/Jun/18
@Shane: yea that’s too high for Dennis. Scottie Pippen even said Dennis wasn’t taller than 6’6 or so and MJ said he’s 6’6 220. Says a lot about MJ lol. He’s 6’4.5 at a normal low. Now out of bed Rodman would clear 6’7” but not by 3/4”. Maybe 1/4” on a good day. I think a peak Pippen may be 6’7” or 6’6.75 at a normal low meaning before the Extreme low kicks in
Shane said on 12/Jun/18
@Peterson188cm no way he was almost a full barefoot 6'8" out of bed. That would have put him as an NBA 6'9" and he didnt look near that tall. He was max 2 inches over Jordan who was maybe 6'5 1/4" barefoot out of bed. I'd say Dennis 6'7" barefoot out of bed was possible though. Maybe 6'7 1/4 at most but I really doubt that. He never really looked much over 6'6" flat barefoot on the court to 6'6 1/2 max on the floor. I'd say Pippen was slightly taller and he was a very solid in shoe 6'8" imo. Pippen was probably over 6'7" flat barefoot out of bed and possibly 6'7 1/3 or so.
Canson said on 10/Jun/18
At that size 6’6 and change to lead the league in rebounding was impressive
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/May/18
6'6 3/8 now and 6'6 5/8 peak.
Canson said on 11/May/18
@Shane: I think today he’s down there honestly
Shane said on 10/May/18
He might have been peak 6'6" 5/8 or 3/4" out of bed.
Shane said on 10/May/18
If say he definitely can dip to 6'6" flat.
Height said on 8/May/18
199.5 cm-200 cm at his lowest.
VicLions said on 6/May/18
Hard to say in all honesty, I believe he is 2M tall. Maybe not 201 cm.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/May/18
Might be down to 6'6 1/4 soon.
Canson said on 24/Apr/18
Average is too high esp considering he himself said he was 6’6”. Maybe 6’6.5 but hard to buy him taller than that
Canson said on 18/Apr/18
I’d say a peak height of this or maybe a hair less but today may only be 6’6” or a hair over it. A legit 199 peak tho or roughly 199
Canson said on 25/Mar/18
Prob was 199cm range at his peak but today prob 6’6” or a hair over
Jason 193cm said on 20/Mar/18

You are spot on Peterson, he's closer to 199.5 cm - 200 cm at his lowest.
Canson said on 1/Feb/18
I think peak

6’7.25 out of bed
6’6.25-.5 at his low

Today probably 6’6-6’6.25

Dennis Rodman Height: 6ft 6.75in (200.0cm)

at his lowest: 6ft 6.55in (199.5cm)
Canson said on 20/Jan/18
@Star69: that’s not weight that’s his height that would cause that. I’m 2” or so shorter and I lose 3/4” to 2cm in a day and I’m 218lbs for a guy who is 6’4 and change which is not a lot. Maybe an inch is a lot but not less than 3/4”. He’s at worst a full 6’7” upon waking if not higher
star69 said on 19/Jan/18
Canson said on 8/Sep/17
Out of bed 201-201.5
Before bed 199cm

I don't see him losing 1" in the course of a day. Maybe 1/2" I can buy. He's not a heavy guy relative to his frame.
Canson said on 18/Jan/18
Avg is a bit high. More like 6’6.5 peak tops maybe even 199
Canson said on 28/Dec/17
Def a strong 6’6” but prob not over 6’6.5 at a low poss 199 flat peak
Canson said on 19/Dec/17
Love the quote Rob. He may have only been closer to 6’6” at a low but it’s a strong 6’6” if he was
Canson said on 10/Dec/17
@Thereel: well said it is rare. Normally after 18-19 you may just really close the gap on your morning to evening height not really grow. But a guy like Rodman or Scottie Pippen apparently did but that is against the grain
TheReel said on 8/Dec/17
To all the people who have had have managed to get the extreme fortune of late height gain lets make sure we appreciate how lucky and blessed we have been in this life we are unique (even if it's only growing a half inch in your early twenties like me), Dennis rodmans life story is just INSANE it's the classic underdog story, his life should be made into a film because if it was well made it would be a masterpiece his height, but I don't want other people to get false hope though because growing ANYTHING at all after 19 or 21 is just extremely unlikely....... and after 24 it is flat out impossible bar medical disorders...
Canson said on 2/Dec/17
Peak height 6’7.5 out of bed
6’6.5 at his lowest
Anonymous said on 29/Nov/17
Fake Dennis is close to 6foot 8
Canson said on 21/Nov/17
@Vegas: i thought the same at first but Smith actually is likely taller than Thomas. Dumars from what I’ve read and heard is 6’1 range barefoot 6’3 listed in sneaks rounded up just like Jordan is 6’6” in sneaks rounded up. Looking at Rodman next to them it adds up
Vegas said on 18/Nov/17
He had noticeable height on Hulk Hogan in 1995 Click Here

Isiah Thomas can't be that short as he seemed to edge out Will Smith on Fresh Prince Click Here
Canson said on 29/Oct/17
@Bennett: I’d put Horace at about 6’9. I wouldn’t go below 6’8.75 at his lowest. To me the diff with Pippen can be 2-2.5”. But when I see Scottie with Toni kukoc I see about 3”. Toni is a weak 6’10 or strong 6’9” imho
Bennett said on 28/Oct/17
Canson, Horace grant is a weak 6ft9 if you say pippen was a weak 6ft7. There isn't over 2inches between both players.
Canson said on 25/Oct/17
Funny thing is he is taller than trace Adkins by a bit
Canson said on 23/Oct/17
@Junior: not sure on Dennis but Melo when I stood next to him had me by 1.5-2” max.i Also look at how he stands with Kobe only about 1.5” taller than him tops. Pippen is a bit taller than Melo but maybe about as much diff as Lebron has. Scottie may only be 6’6.75 today (could’ve been 6’7” peak possibly but he’s had multiple surgeries too). I say it for pip too based on how he looks with 6’9” Horace grant and with Rodman he sometimes appears the same height as him.
Jordan TK said on 22/Oct/17
Maybe he's 6ft 6.3inches tall
Junior said on 20/Oct/17
@Canson said on 14/Oct/17

I think 199.5cm peak and 199cm flat today for Rodman. Carmelo Anthony look taller than his draft measurement 6-6 1/4. He was very close to 6'7 Pippen within a fraction. Melo lowest could be 199.5cm a Peak Rodman and Pippen i can't see him under 200cm if not wrong.
Canson said on 14/Oct/17
@Junior: I think the 200cm is too high but for sure 199 range peak. Maybe today he’s 198.5 like Carmelo Anthony is. I remember Scottie said Dennis is 6’6” or so and MJ said he was 6’6” 220. So think he’s gotta be right there in the middle as a max but def wakes up above 6’7” even slightly
Junior said on 13/Oct/17
I did say a peak height for Rodman closer to 6'6.75" and still holding 6'6.5" for now.
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
@Johnson: I concur I would say the growth was a bit more spread out than that too. Then again there are some people here who grew in the span of two to three years of maybe 6-8" in their adulthood.
Canson said on 25/Sep/17
@Johnson: my guess is he reached 199cm around 21-22 prob. He honestly still looks that today (worst case a weak 199).
Johnson said on 24/Sep/17
@Canson what is your prediction for Rodman with age?

15 5'8
16 5'9
17 5'10
18 5'11
19 6'1
20 6'3
21 6'5

I do not believe the legend of a 20 cm growth spurt in a year
Canson said on 18/Sep/17
@Alexander alves: that's possible. He does have very long legs. Then again pippen does as does Jordan so they can all appear taller at times. My guesses are:

Rodman 199cm (6'6 plus)
MJ 194-194.5 (6'4.5ish)
Pippen 200cm (weak 6'7)
Alexandre alves said on 15/Sep/17
I think more than 39 of inseam ... in that action figure who released him a while ago his proportions seem carnacles he disguises it with tattoos is a lean muscle physicist he owes an inseam ratio of 49%
Canson said on 11/Sep/17
@Alexander Alves: good observation. he may be one of those people who look a lot taller in person than he looks on TV or in game when he played. Inseam for him maybe a 38 or so. Definitely not the 6'8 barefoot or probably even a full 6'7 he was listed during his career (he was listed both ways). However I do believe he was 6'7" plus out of bed and around 6'6.5ish. He claimed 6'6" near the tail end with Chicago but perhaps similar to Dominique Wilkins not a regular 6'6" like Jalen Rose or Penny Hardaway were. I'd be curious to see a good pic with Carmelo Anthony and he. Melo was 198.5ish in person but I'd be willing to bet Rodman edged him slightly at his peak.

Rodman is all legs ... which do you think is your inseam Rob?
Canson said on 15/Aug/17
@Junior: agreed. Maybe at his lowest he dipped a tad below but probably still just about a solid 199cm guy at his lowest and he easily would wake up above 6'7".
Junior said on 14/Aug/17
Watching him play in the Bulls during hey days my guess Rodman was a solid 6'6.5" a good listing here.
Canson said on 12/Aug/17
I saw an article where his son was actually described and Dennis himself said if his son reaches 6'6/6'7 he would be a great guard I believe I guess implying his son isn't as tall now but also saying in a sense that he himself is 6'6/6'7 which is pretty accurate. I've heard one person I know who has met him say he's 6'7 then someone else say he's 6'6". I think he's a guy who wakes up at over 6'7" possibly and comes down to maybe 6'6 1/4 at his lowest potentially losing a full inch in a day
Canson said on 27/Jul/17

Canson said on 19/Jul/17
@Brad: I agree with your estimate tho somewhere between a string 6'6 and weak 6'7 maybe I'd say bang on 199-199.5 whereas MJ and Pip looked 2" shorter and 1 cm taller respectively
Brad said on 12/Jul/17
Can't remember his footwear, I think he had on low cut Chuck Taylors. I probably had the same, non worn, I don't wear my slob shoes in L.A.. Cuban shoulda kept him. I liked the tale of working at DFW Airport going after the bling with I think a broom handle through the security fence.
Canson said on 9/Jul/17
@Brad: had Cuban not canned him he may have been able to experiment with playing naked in Dallas! As for his height did you see footwear? Were you two similar?
Brad said on 7/Jul/17
Spotted him across the street from a Kinko's in Burbank at Pass Avenue back in the day when he was looking for a team to take him. He was signing stuff at a collector's store. I'd give him weak 6' 7" next to me. He had me, I know that, no go 6' 6" flat. I asked him if it was true he was going to go naked on his last game and he told me "I need a team bro".

@SJH: i agree. I have talked to people that have met rodman thaybhave said he looked 6'7" to them and then some closer in height like my 6'3" friend that said he's 6'6, maybe 6'6.5 on a good day but likely met him later in his career or didn't pay attention to footwear maybe because he saw him once before and wasn't standing right in front of him and assumed he was 6'8" the first time but the 2nd met him he actually shook hands and said he's 3 or so inches taller
S.J.H said on 21/Jun/17
@Canson

I'm not surprise if Cudmore can drop to his lowest at 6'6.25 and often claiming 6'6 now. Rodman could drop to min 6'6 no surprise to me. But a peak Rodman is had to be same range as Cudmore.
Canson said on 12/Jun/17
@SJH; looking at Kroc's comments on Cudmores page when he met Rodman he guessed Rodman as a flat 6'6" guy too so I can see where your logic comes from as well. Kroc is also 6'5-6'5.25 like he mentioned (said barely an inch so that could mean 6'6-6'6.25). Now my guess is maybe he's lost a small fraction and was 199 at his peak. As for him edging celebs He wears some exotic footwear at times

How can Rodman look 6'6 flat when he absolutely towered everyone in celebrity apprentice he was even taller than 6'6 listed trace Adkins by 1.5 inches with less footwear and consistently looks at least 2cm taller then Penn with less footwear as well s.j.h you have not shown any concrete evidence to prove he's a 6'6 flat I'm not buying it and I bet he and cudmore are the same height maybe at most a 1/8 of a difference but that's negligible.
Canson-194CM (6'4 3/8) said on 29/Apr/17
@Rising force: I think 6'6.5 but under it isn't out of realm. Pippen wasn't the 6'7.5 he was billed that I am sure of and rodman is a current Phil Jackson height (6'7 peak for pj) 6'6.5 today. Jordan would easily measure 6'5" in the morning but would not retain it of r the day like Christian said. He and I both are only 1" apart in height Jordan would be shorter than Christian is by a good 2cm. Christian is more Ron harper's height Harper was taller than Jordan Jordan is more my height
RisingForce said on 27/Apr/17
I can potentially believe anything from 6'6.5" to 6'7" for Rodman, but I certainly can't believe a mere 6'6" flat. I'll have to look at Rodman a bit more, but he looked 6'6.5" minimum and 6'7" max with Jordan and Pippen.
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
@Rob: thanks! I would've actually thought rodman until I saw the pics with you and cudmore. Cudmore looks a legit 199cm prob at his lowest and you also said he was taller than Rick fox in lower footwear. I can almost see cudmore not dipping under 199cm at night 6'6.34ish but an aged rod man may
Canson said on 17/Apr/17
@Rob: who do you think is taller? Cudmore or Dennis Rodman? I'm thinking both may have lost a fraction and I can see cud more closer to 6'7" peak
Editor Rob: Canson, Cudmore isn't that old...more chance Rodman losing small fraction, but certainly Cudmore will clear 6ft 7 earlier in the morning maybe while eating breakfast he's still about 6ft 7, then late in the day 6ft 6.5.
Canson said on 31/Mar/17
@Borats: thanks! yep I've seen! I believed it until I saw him with people similar in size (Karl Malone is 6'8" barefoot) and Magic 6'7" and they can look shorter but he can look the same as Magic at times as well. Also with Rodman I've seen where they look identical in height. Rodman I totally believe Rob's listing. I always wonder about these older drafts as they don't have an in shoes listing.

@S.J.H: pippen does look not much taller maybe 1/2". 6'6.75-6'7. Rod man prime I can see as maybe a solid 199. Melo looked near that mark too. He may not get down as low as 6'6" flat but I'd say around 6'6 1/8 low if he doesn't drop to 6'6". He looked between 1.5-2" difference with me. Melo to the eye in person looks every bit a strong 6'6/maybe a good 6'6" is the right word. Pippens 6'7.5 I think was rounded in my honest opinion. It's tricky with fractions over an amount so he may have been 6'7 1/8 and rounded in the morning which would make him 6'6.75ish if he loses a full inch or can also be a matter of the back surgeries he's had. The only doubt I have is that Pip edges Jimmy butler by a couple inches but leads me to believe butler isn't really 6'6" more 6'5" which is how he looks in game
S.J.H said on 15/Mar/17
@Canson

Scottie pippen look similar lebron james range if you check him with michael jordan. They look 5-5.5cm difference. Pippen maybe 6'7.5 in his prime for the morning draftcamp measurement and dipping into 6'6.75 lowest during the day and might be a fraction under 200cm now and real height difference from dennis rodman and pippen is only a solid half inch not more. A peak rodman would edge out carmelo anthony by the standard draftcamp measurement 6'6.75 (lowest 6'6.25) and carmelo should be 6'6.5 (lowest 6'6) but i realise rodman look to lost a fraction look about carmelo range nowadays. Horace grant probably always 6'9 does look near 3" on a peak rodman like you say is true.
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I think you may be right he doesn't look at least today more than maybe melo's height. He was skinny in his day so he looked taller. But he was never as tall as Pippen was (I've heard people say Scottie is 6'7" in shoes although I take that as 6'7.5 more likely if he's really that low). Horace Grant also Is 6'9" barefoot and had rodman by close to 3 in close ups while pippin looks close in height with you maybe he's only 200 barefoot
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I saw an article where Scottie Pippen said "Dennis wasn't much more than 6'6 or so" when he vouched for his hall of fame induction then have heard Jordan say that he's probably half inch taller than he is at 6'6 220. I'm think Jordan was referring to his shoe height vs rodman being barefoot. But on the other end of the spectrum I saw the one guy post on Trace Adkins page that he thought rod man was about 6'6 3/4 this coming from a 6'7 guy and then Brad once posted that Worm had him by an inch and Brad claims 6'6". of course footwear is never spoken of. My guess for his prime he may have actually been 6'6.5 but not higher. My buddy has met him and worked with his agent Darren Prince. He said Rodman is probably 6'6 and change and my friend is 6'3". He initially said about that when I asked 6'6.5 but when we discussed again he said Worm is 6'6/6'6.5. He may have lost a fraction at his age.
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
@Alexander: he's a late bloomer. Prob genes he has to go from 5'9" to 6'6".

@S.J.H after seeing more pics he doesn't look any taller than Penny. He may just be a guy who was never a real 6'7. Maybe was a strong 6'6 who got all the way to 6'6" flat but woke 6'7. I trust your judgment too because you are that height of 6'6" range

Honestly dennis rodman can look more like 6'6 than 6'6.5 and i can see a legit 6'6.5 is more like daniel cudmore who claim his not 6'8 and not even 6'7 but 6'6.5 and making a peak hugh jackman look just 6'1. We have know Penn Jillette is not even 6'6 and with advantage footwear he look a little shorter than rodman

@Berta: he at least prime was not below 199cm flat (6'6.35). He'd edge me by roughly 2" according to a 6'3 friend who has worked with him before in his marketing business. 6'6.5 is fair enough as an aggregate. He's 1.75-2" taller than Jordan and Barkley and about a cm-1/2" shorter than pippen. My friend has met all of them but Pippen. The other two are my height approximately (6'4.5)

Animus said on 19/Aug/16
I wonder whether some of these underprivileged black athletes with extreme growth spurts unknowingly took growth hormone in their teens. Perhaps a friendly mentor provided them with a little help to grow? Jordan was apparently obsessed with growing taller in his early high school days and even tried various stretching exercises to grow tall. As he reached 6'3" around age 16, I think he grew on his own, but he exemplifies the obsession one might have with growing taller in a basketball-centric sports culture in the black community.

Both Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman grew more than half a foot after high school, which is practically unheard of. I can easily imagine that Pippen, who was a "team manager" for the basketball team at his college, got a little help and thought it was harmless. His growth plates were still open, so he might have grown from 6'1" to 6'3" (his parents were 6'1" and 6'0", which implies a predicted mean height of 6'3" in height for their male offspring) with normal hormone levels, but growing to about 6'6.5" is incredible in absence of severe deprivation. Rodman had no bright future ahead of him coming out of high school. He was caught stealing and was homeless for a while. It hardly seems a stretch that he would succumb to the temptation of some "chemical assistance". Knowing how prevalent steoroids are in high school circles among athletes (although primarily among football players), I wouldn't be surprised that a number of poor kids try their luck with illegal substances. Rodman and Pippen, two Hall of Fame basketball players, might be prime examples of this.
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.

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.

MY GUESS IS 6'5 1/2"
WAF said on 29/Jul/15
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.

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.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Jun/15
Dmax says on 17/May/15
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.

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.

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.

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.]

Also look at internet images... Kim wears thick elevator shoes consistently.

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.]

@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"

I think this list (199cm) it's correct
He loos like 3 cms taller than 6ft 4.75-6ft.5 Joe Manganiello

@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).

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

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.

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.

never 6'8

Odd, he doesn't pick up on the search engine. Probably the only guy on the planet who could wear that neon pink vest and not look gay! Click Here

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.
