Dikembe Mutombo's Height
7ft 1 ¼ (216.5 cm)
Congolese American basketball player, who played for teams such as Denver Nuggets, Atlanta Hawks and Houston Rockets.
In January 1991 he said "Now it's my goal. It's easy to talk about it being my dream because I'm 7-3. But I don't want to become just another player who goes to the NBA as a project. I want to go there and play"
At the draft he was measured 7ft 2 in sneakers. A 1991 article mentioned how he was listed as being 7ft 2 but "He measured out to be 7-1"

Canson, 1cm lost could be possible for Dikembe you see him with 7'0-7'0 1/8 Rudy Gobert. Kareem we all know had lost about an inch now.

@Junior: that’s possible if the 7’1.25 were morning. He generally looks 7’1”

I did pack Dikembe at 7'0 7/8 same height as a recent height Kareem.

7'1.25" at his peak
Canson said on 27/Apr/18
Peak height was likely 7’1” at a low. Doubt under

Rob has him close enough. Doubt he’s much under 7’1” at night If he even dips under

7'3 claim was just Lol. He can't even be 7'3 out of bed. At most 7'2.25" and goes to bed maybe 7'1 flat. People like 7 footers usually lost 3cm in a day.

Dunno about that Slim, Yao Ming is apparently around the 30th tallest person alive, so 1 in 100 million men seems more appropriate for him. I think Dikembe would be more like 1 in 10-20 million men, which is still obviously the 100th percentile to over 6 s.f.

7'1.5" is good for this man. 217 cm.
1 in 105,968,027 men would edge him out.

Thanks for adding him Rob. I agree with the listing.

Really weird for a 7'1 guy adding 2 inches to his real height.
Editor Rob: Height inflation isn't restricted to the short and average, there's enough tall people out there who love to boost themselves up even more.

He's taller than Shaq.But,only because Shaq is 6'11 look at shaq with Yao Ming he gets dwarfed by him.

@Animus: looks right all things considered. He is leaning his head when nique isn't really. My guess is Nique is 6'6.5 not a full 6'7". Easy 6'7" out of bed. He doesn't look taller than rodman does and maybe 2" on Barkley and 5 or so on Dumars who is 6'1" range barefoot not 6'3" like he's listed. Mutombo 7'1" solid at his lowest 7'2" or so out of bed

7'1" peak barefoot

I would be shocked if that was Dikembe Mutombo on the right! XD
Animus said on 24/Sep/17
He struggles a bit to justify his listing in that photo next to Dominique Wilkins, who is ~6'7", but this looks like an accurate listing nonetheless. He always seems around an inch taller than Shaq.

Looked a tiny bit taller than Ralph Sampson so I agree with the 7'1.25" listing Click Here
