@Junior: I see other pics where it’s 2”. Those two are not very good. The absolute minimum is 4cm but looks generally 4-5 between them. I do agree on Tmac. He’s about 1.5” taller than Kobe
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/May/19
@Canson Not 2". Kobe could be only 3cm on Wade. Click Here Check out here in this forum there are much better picture to compare and Kobe look an inch on Wade standing next to each other and a full picture. Only look like at best Kobe were 3cm on Wade. Other thing is Tracy Mcgrady 6'7-6'8 claim is off the chart when he look at most struggle 1.5" taller than Kobe.

6’3 flat no higher. Really looks weak
avi said on 12/May/19
It think a downgrade is in order to 6'3.25
Canson said on 8/May/19
@Junior: Wade is still 2” shorter than Kobe and also shorter than Bradley Beal or Keith bogans or Ray Allen. The most I could give wade is 6’3” flat and that looks a bit high at times. A guy wouldn’t come out and say he’s 6’4” on a very good day at that size (6’3.5). In addition Lebron Otis Smith and Erik Spoelstra have all said the same
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/May/19
@Canson Check out this Click Here scroll to 6:10-6:22 at e end of clip, Strahan and Wade both had the similar heel footwear and through the end of clip there isn't over 1/2 between them. If Strahan is 193cm and the absolute worst Wade is 1/8 under 6'3 1/2. The truth couldn't hide from this clip anymore. Alot of bad camera angle, bad posture causes him to get guess from 6'2-'6'3 that isn't true at all. Like i say he look betweeen 191-192cm, best shot of guesses he can be 191.5cm a low when standing straight.
Spencer said on 6/May/19
6'3" ish
Canson said on 23/Apr/19
@Junior: only problem is that others in that class look the height they were measured or supposedly measured and Wade himself has always claimed to be 6’4 on a good day and others even calling him that. A guy measuring 6’3.75 at any point in the day is not calling himself 6’4” on a good day. He knows he really isn’t that tall
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Apr/19
If Wade is 6'4 out of bed and near an hour measure at 6'3.75" in draft camp then he got to be 6'3.25" at worst a low. I don't think he bust a gut for the 6'3.75" measurement, he can look anywhere 191-192cm. 6'3 flat is out.
Canson said on 11/Apr/19
This listing is about as bad as Merriman’s 6’4 or 6’3.5 listing

@Canson:

6'3.5 not 6'5, lol
Jdubbz 196cm said on 25/Mar/19
@Canson:

That's what I thought as well, but then it also says he was measured 6'4.75 in shoes. Maybe the shoe measurement was legit but it was in thick sneakers and possibly orthopedics + early morning height? I could see him being 6'3.25-6'5 an hour or so out of bed.
Canson said on 18/Mar/19
@Jdubbz: I’m wondering if that was a shoe height and was moved into the wrong column. Wade has even admitted that he’s 6’4” on a really good day. We see that Lebron measures only .75 taller in shoes at the combine so wade could be the same. I have wade at 6’2.75 as well. 6’3” tops. Next to Goran Dragic that’s maybe 1/2” difference if really a cm. Dragic shows 6’2.75 but not sure if that’s early in the day. I have seen players from 03 and the ones I saw didn’t look much like Morning heights maybe late morning but probably around 1/4”. TJ ford however only looked 5’10” not 5’11”

@Canson:

I'm really confused about Wade. I agree he looks 6'3 or even 190cm most of the time, but how did he manage to get a 6'3.75 barefoot measurement?
Canson said on 10/Mar/19
Wade is nothing over 6’3”. Often looks 6’2.5-6’3 really
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Mar/19
Click Here Strange huh. Wade look as listed on 5'6 Ellen show.
Canson said on 26/Feb/19
@Kevin Jordan: it wouldn’t surprise me if Beal were only 6’2.5-.75 at his low when he entered the league but is 6’3.5 today at a low. A lot of people say that he’s grown an Inch and he looks noticeably taller than John Wall. I’m from Northern VA right outside of Washington
Kevinjordan said on 25/Feb/19
Agreed canson
Canson said on 23/Feb/19
@Kevin Jordan: my guess is 6’3.5 for Beal 6’3” tops for Wade but maybe even 6’2.75. His combine listing makes no sense as he’s nowhere near that next to a guy like Lebron or Carmelo. He doesn’t look anymore than max 6’3” but often times weak 6’3” is feasible.
Canson said on 23/Feb/19
I’d be money that Beal edges him. Beal is still only 6’3 range at a low. I could see growth from his rookie season and buy 6’3.5 perhaps
Kevinjordan said on 22/Feb/19
@Rob hello rob it’s been awhile since you have added another basketball player can you add Bradley Beal?
Kevinjordan said on 22/Feb/19
@Junior Lol even in that 20 second part of the video Beal still has 2 cm on Dwayne wade and when they stood together with the jerseys Beal clearly had 2 cm on him I have wade at 190cm and Beal at 191.8-192cm clearly.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Feb/19
@Junior
Something's off with that pic. If Wade's 6'3" or even 6'2.75", Lillard doesn't look over 5'11".
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Feb/19
Click Here almost 4" on weak 6'1 Damien Lillard.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
If you saw him being interviewed with Lebron last night it’s clear he’s nowhere near this listing. A 6’7” Lebron makes him about 6’2.5-6’3” barefoot
Canson said on 15/Feb/19
@Shashank: I’ve been saying that all along about Wade. I can see you at 6’3 3/8 edging him easily although it would be 1/2” or 2cm. I would be very surprised if Wade maintained 6’3” throughout the day. A solid 6’3” guy or strong gives off a taller impression than he does. But at his size he has done some incredible things.
Shashank-6'3 3/8 said on 8/Feb/19
@Canson
Dwyane wade is barely coming till his eyelevel.A legit 6'3 guy would atleast come till his eyebrows.Right?
Canson said on 7/Feb/19
Looks minimum 4” shorter than Lebron who is likely at most a flat 6’7” in the afternoon. I’d put Wade at 6’2.75

@Christian: I know that Mickie met him in person and said he only looked around 2” taller than he was. Mickie at a low is 6’3.25. Mickie did concede that maybe he had a footwear advantage since it was winter and he may have been wearing boots and he wasn’t sure about Pierce. I could go as far as saying Pierce is 6’5.75 and Wade 6’2.75 as I can just about see 3” and pierce is leaning in a bit

Wade with Paul Pierce who is leaning in. Pierce might not even be the full 6’6”. Looks 197 range in some pics.

Canson said on 17/Jan/19
I’d say 6’2.75 and that the NBA has a discrepancy with his measurement. The other guys in the class like Bosh Melo and Lebron and Keith Bogans look close to their pre draft heights whereas Wade does not nor does TJ Ford but Ford was listed 5’10” in college at one point and high school as a senior I believe
Shashank-6'3 3/8 said on 16/Jan/19
I guess he is more like 6'3.25the difference between wade and lebron is almost 4 inches.Thats how my dad looks next to me when both of us are standing tall
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Jan/19
@Canson

Good point. Most people who claim "on a good day" inflate at least an inch.
Canson said on 13/Jan/19
@Junior: I still have Beal taller. Also Wade admitted in the one clip I posted that he’s 6’4 on a very good day. A guy measuring 6’3.5 or .75 wouldn’t refer to himself that way. That’s a 6’2.5-6’3 or a full 6’3 tops when a guy would say that
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Jan/19
When the camera angle adjusted in the clip it looks like Wade is 1/2" taller than Bradley Beal than the opposite Canson think. However i still think 6'3 1/2 downgrade is fair for Wade but 6'3-6'3 1/4 seem a bit low. Click Here on 0:20 Adjusted angle Wade look 1/2" taller.
Canson said on 8/Jan/19
@Rob: I think discrepancy. Carmelo and Lebron measured at the same draft and they look close to their listings. Same with Keith Bogans and Kirk Hinrich Both look Max 1/4” off. Not saying Wade didn’t lay down but even then that seems high considering he can look a weak 6’3”. The other possibility is that it is equivalent to early morning like Christian once said and it’s really 6’3.5+ and just got rounded up to 3/4”. Meaning he may just be a solid 6’3”. That I could almost believe. I’m of the opposite. 6’3” flat looks max but high for him even relative to what he or others in the league have said about his height

@Rob: Beal is definitely taller. How much is debatable. But it shows Wade is far too high here
Editor Rob
I don't doubt Wade was measured just under 6ft 4, but then if it was an early measurement then he could fall a fraction more, but to 6ft 3 flat I doubt.
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Rob: Beal measured 6’3.25 in the morning. I won’t rule out growth as he can honesty look 6’3.5 today at his low but it goes to show that Wade isn’t 6’3.75. Wade looks about 1/2” or 2cm shorter

Editor Rob
In that clip I'm not sure if Wade looked shorter or the same, he looked a bit further when posing with the jerseys.

Canson said on 23/Dec/18
@Rising: I know from someone who has met and spent time around him that they guessed him 6’2.5-6’3 in person. That looks reasonable but the absolute best case 6’3”. The latter makes sense too because he would’ve been measured at the equivalent of a morning height and still be 6’3” at a low. Plus 1/8 increments aren’t used so 6’3.75 could mean something like 6’3.55 or something which would mean he could be more like 6’2 7/8 or 6’3 at a low. My theory has been that it’s a discrepancy and that he’s 6’2.75 like Christian and also KROC said a long time ago here. KROC claims to have met him and said he’s under 6’3 (6’2.5-.6’2.75). Not saying that’s gospel or that he did meet him in fact because I don’t have proof but that was how he looked to the person who I know that met him and that’s how he looks with Melo and Lebron. The same guy who met him has also met Melo and I agree with his legit (at least) 6’6” assessment on him as well as his 6’7” ish assessment on Lebron
Canson said on 22/Dec/18
@Rising: I see more than 4” at times but generally around 4” makes sense. I have a hard time seeing that as a low for Lebron because of how he looked with Kevin Love as Love would be closer to 6’7” at his low. Love looks marginally taller like a cm maybe 1/4” imho. I also see Lebron with Melo and that could be 2cm to 1”. I don’t disagree with a 6’7” Lebron tho. I also see a difference with Carlos Boozer. Imho 6’7” is good but I think he’s under 6’7” as opposed to over it. Meaning 6’6.75 would be more likely than 6’7.25.

@Canson: I don't have trouble believing 6'7.25" for Lebron since it's almost the same as 6'7" anyway. I don't know about 4.5". It looks just 3.5" in this pic: Click Here but 4" in this one: Click Here
Canson said on 20/Dec/18
@Rising: I’d say sometimes 4.5” as well. And I don’t have Lebron as high as 6’7.25. 6’7” flat max as he doesn’t appear to have more than 1” on Melo. Maybe even 2cm. I doubt it’s less than a solid 4” between them
Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Dec/18
@Canson: Depends on how much Lebron's hat adds. Could be 4" or just under, though Wade might be dropping more height. With that said, Wade might have a slight camera advantage himself since his head looks longer than Lebron's with the hat. The difference is usually 3.5"-4" from what I've seen, sometimes slightly under or over that range, but not much. I'd say he can look 191 cm or 6'3.5" max with Lebron at times.

Canson said on 17/Dec/18
@Rising: yea Speight is favored heavily. I think if we took that away that it wouldn’t be that close. I look at where he comes up on his head and you’re right Speight has a long head. I would like to see where he really measures at the combine. I wouldn’t be surprised if he measured something like 6’5.75 since they take place so early in the AM. 6’6” wouldn’t surprise me either. He looks close to 6’6” at times
Canson said on 17/Dec/18
@Junior: even a 6’7” Lebron with a 4” diff makes Wade 6’3” that I could believe but over 6’3” is hard to believe
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Rising: I definitely think camera advantage for Speight. I would see the difference being more like a max of 3” otherwise. With Hulk I could see posture being what did that. As for MCD that’s just odd. Looking at him with the pic Jackson posted and mine, Lebron has 4” on him in 1 and even more in the other. I could buy 6’3 flat but really he looks weak 6’3 to me. But no less than 6’2.5-.6’3”.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Dec/18
@Canson No that is more like 4" but we can't see lower body and the there is always camera angle making tricks. Sometimes Wade doesn't look over what Rob listed them 3.5" difference shorter and other time 4" and some IG picture can look like a magical 5" as we know Lebron is 6'7 and i have see those beach walking picture they're barefoot look like a tap bit under 4" maybe 3.75". Barefoot is often more reliable to compare height between individuals.

Click Here Wade look 6'2 here

Click Here Look to be 3.75"

Click Here The full frame barefeet look lower than 3.75" here
Canson said on 14/Dec/18
At 1:26, Wade barely comes up to Lebron’s eyebrows with Lebron looking down at him. That’s likely over a 4” difference between them

Canson said on 8/Dec/18
@Jackson: that’s the most I give him. I remember you mentioned about Curry being 1” shorter than your friend who met him. That’s likely a morning measurement but for Wade, I would say that is an error and that’s likely a shoe height. I could buy 6’3.75-6’4 with shoes on
Canson said on 6/Dec/18
@Christian: lol he does make him look small. I’d like to see if Speight grew. But in the pic, going at where he comes up on Speight, Wade looks how he was described by someone else that met him and Lebron meaning max 6’3” but likely a bit less. This pic here with them, I could even give Lebron the full 6’7” like the one guy on Lebron’s page described recently. KROC a former poster was also usually an honest poster and he described Lebron as maybe as tall as Rob lists him but definitely 6’7”. Wade comes out weak 6’3 with him. Certainly 6’2” range vs 6’3 range. Most people giving him 6’3.25 are assuming his pre draft is accurate and that it’s a morning height. Melo Kirk Hinrich and Keith Bogans look closer to their pre draft measurements, so it tells me it had to have taken place later in the day than it does now. I couldn’t see Melo below 6’6” or above 6’6.25 nor could I see Bogans under 6’4. TJ Ford doesn’t look his height either. He looks 5’10”.

Jackson said on 6/Dec/18
If wade is actually 6’3 3/4” barefoot that means he hits 6’5” in basketball shoes and I just don’t see that being likely. I’ve got wade at 6’3” flat. Maybe 6’3 1/4”
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Dec/18
@Canson: Not less than 4" in that pic and maybe more, but Speight looks to have a significant advantage since his head looks well over an inch bigger and he looks to be standing straighter. Wade did look taller than 6'3"+ Hulk Hogan in 2007: Click Here and oddly looked taller than Michael Clarke Duncan: Click Here Though I guess that was his camera advantage.

Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 30/Oct/18
Rob, you list people like Lillard and other measured ahletes shorter before, so why not do it for Wade? It's almost obvious at this point that he's not legit 6'3.75". He honestly looks max 6'3".

I wouldn't go as short as 6ft 3, though I can see who 6ft 3.25 to 3.5 is an arguable range.

If we can dock Tim Tebow a half inch off of his measured height by assuming it was very early in the day, I think we can make the same assumption about Wade. I think if we're talking in the afternoon, he'd be likely to measure around 6'3". I wouldn't go with more than that.
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
@Junior: that’s possible. As for someone guessing Kobe 6’4.5 that’s simple even if not footwear advantage. If Kobe is wearing regular sneakers and someone else is in regular sneakers and measures 6’5 1/8 they may just be told or just think they’re 6’5 and see a half inch advantage on Kobe and call him 6’4.5. Could also be a case if someone can’t tell 2.5” from 2”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Oct/18
Jason Kidd is not more than 6'2 or not quite under. Wade had a solid inch on him. 6'3 is absolute low for Wade standing straight. People can look shorter when they drop height posture standing. Just like someone who claim Kobe look 6'4 1/2 in person and problem is shoes or posture took chances of missing 1/4-1/2 and others mostly say met him and he is strong 6'5. Wade is strong 6'3 compare to his All Star teammates.
Canson said on 19/Sep/18
Max I can give Wade based on this pic is 6’3”. Other times he’s 2” shorter than Kobe. Here looks about 1.75” maybe 4cm. Kidd could be 189 range here

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Sep/18
However Wade is not lower than 6'3 by comparing to all his teammates. Shawne Merriman is not under 6'3 1/4 maybe 1/2.

Canson said on 3/Sep/18
@Junior: Rodgers is always scrutinized for his height. I’ve seen where he is sensitive when people tell him he looks shorter in person than he is. That leads me to believe he isn’t over 6’1”. He looked a full inch shorter than Favre

He was CLEARLY joking, viper, although it is a certainly not surprising that someone like you doesn't get simple things such as irony and sense of humour...
Canson said on 2/Sep/18
@Christian: yup! 3 which is crazy. Then you have the Kevin Love and Carlos Boozers who are really closer to 6’7” than 6’8 at a low that gained 2” at the combine
Canson said on 2/Sep/18
@Viper: that’s correct he did admit to that. In addition it’s just like what you mentioned with Julian Peterson. He was “supposedly” measured 6’5 1/8 and he’s only 6’3”. That’s the same case with Merriman and Wade. I highly doubt Wade measured 6’3.75 barefoot. That’s a shoe height that was improperly listed. I could buy 6’2.75 however
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Sep/18
Anything lower than 6'3 for Merriman is insane because Aaron Rodgers did not look under 6'1 more like over it. Posture and camera angle fooled some people that a taller guy being shorter than measured height. One point Kevin Spacey was listed somewhere from 5'4 to 5'7 and 5'9 to 5'11. Having like 7 inches ridiculous listed all over the internet before it clears up on the net now listed him from 5'10-5'11 and he is only 5'9 1'2 at least not far from what he claimed to be 5'10. Also Merriman look 1.5" taller than The Rock that picture wasn't a bad angle. Unless Rock is 6'0.5" then Merriman is 6'2. Merriman listing is mostly on the 6'2-6'4.5" range. He has to be at least 6'3 not less.

Junior, Nick Hardwick was measured at 6'3 4/8 Click Here (and 6'3 6/8 according to couchscout), while Kassim was measured at 6'4 7/8 Click Here . That's certainly a very good picture (full body shot, on flat ground, where you can see their feet and footwear, which is basically around the same range for all of them) where Shawne does look near enough his 6'4 listing, considering that, height-wise, he looks right between Nick and Kassim: Click Here
As for Dwayne, I agree that he generally does look much closer to 6'3 than 6'4 (and I can even see how he can look a weak 6'3 at times), but I highly doubt he's under 6'3 too, especially considering that he was measured at 6'3.75 and that there's no way a guy who gets measured at 6'3.75 at some point of the day (be it even very early in the morning, but certainly not out of bed) can lose over 0.75 inches before he hits his low. That being said, I think somewhere nearer 6'3 (6'3-6'3.25) is much more believable than the current 6'3.75 listing.
Canson said on 28/Aug/18
@Junior: I won’t say “can’t” get below that but there are some variances that I’ve seen that are up to 5/8”. So Rodgers at a flat 6’1” is still possible. I won’t argue below that however. And Merriman isn’t 2.25” taller than him imho. Merriman’s height looks all over the place. He can look 6’1” in one pic then 6’5 in another. Hardwick is just an example of him looking 6’4” while with Carmelo Anthony Stephen jackson Randy Moss and Marcellus Wiley he looks 6’2” range. So just because he looks close In height with Hardwick doesn’t mean he actually is. It’s just as much as saying he’s 6’2 with Moss etc

Osgood is over an inch taller than Merriman. Osgood would be something like 194cm or 194.3 at a low and Merriman looks 6’2.5 with him
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Aug/18
@Canson Aaron Rodgers can't be lower than 6'1 1/8 (185.7cm) if he get a 6'1 5/8 morning height and edge out 2.25" by Merriman it shows that Merriman is 6'3 3/8 low so Nick Hardwick would be more like 6'3 not 6'4 and Kassim Osgood will be flat 6'4 at most.
Canson said on 25/Aug/18
@Junior: Rodgers at 6’1 5/8 is definitely a morning height. See him with Brett Favre who is 6’2” and that’s about an inch. Rodgers is 6’1”. But Merriman with Donald Trump or Baker Mayfield or many many other that Christian Viper and I posted such as Kasim Osgood etc shows he isn’t 6’4. He looks 6’2” range with them. His height is all over the place

Notice Wade is 6’4.75 in shoes and 6’3.75 barefoot. Keith Bogans is 6’5 in shoes and taller than Wade as is Ray Allen who is 6’5 in shoes like both are listed. My guess is Wade measured with Shoes. See him with Wilton Speights. Even with the camera that’s easily 2.5” minimum difference. And we don’t know if Speights was a morningheight himself

Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Aug/18
I don't see Wade less than 6'3" myself and lifts in socks is a stretch, imo, but Christian isn't wrong about players probably stuffing their shoes for measurements. There's stories of guys trying to get measured in Timberlands, wearing multiple pairs of socks, orthotics etc. so why not lifts? A 2" difference between basketball sneakers and socks doesn't make sense. Spencer Hawes even measured 2.25" taller in shoes than barefoot.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Aug/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" Yes true no way it gives 2" and an example the 90s release nike air jordan for a new pair boost 1.5" with thick socks on someone can measure easily 4cm taller. Some thick socks can give a solid 1/8 so maybe some player try to wear a double socks with orthotics (5-6mm) in and a thick shoes(1.5" kicks) to get a 2" is possible with their height with shoes measurement.

@Canson Shawne Merriman look taller than 6'4 Nick Hardwick and i have ever see Merriman look a tap over 2" on 6'1 5/8 Aaron Rodgers Click Here Nick Hardwick wear number 61 tops and 6'5 listed Kassim Osgood look only fraction on Merriman.
Canson said on 23/Aug/18
@Christian: there was one guy who actually measured 3” plus taller. He either played for providence or Rhode Island in college and was like 6’5.25 or .5 and measured 6’8.5 in shoes. With Wade he only got an inch from his shoes which leads me to believe you may be right or like KROC said once it may be an error and he likely was 6’2.75 barefoot which is much more believable. I wouldn’t go below 6’2.5 at a low but he doesn’t even look a legit 6’3” guy imho. Looks like he could be 2” shorter than Barkley or Kobe or Jordan
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Aug/18
@Junior

If Wade's 6'3.75" was barefoot, it's very possible that he could've hidden a pair of lifts inside his socks for the measurement. Before you think I'm crazy, I've seen some players at the draft that measured a whole 2" taller when wearing shoes vs without. No way will a basketball sneaker give 2" so it might've been lifts.
Canson said on 21/Aug/18
@Junior: he is closer to the camera but even if you account for that Wade is still 6’2.5-6’3 with him. That’s more than a solid 2” difference. Remember that John Wall is also 6’2.75 on his and is said to be sub 6’2” in person by a couple people who’ve met him one of which is here on Celebheights (S.J.H), and a buddy of mine said he was 1-1.5” shorter than he is at 190.4cm. We also don’t know if Speight is a morning measurement either. That’s another variable. You see other guys below calling him 6’2” or less because they aren’t accounting for it. I on the other hand did. As for his alleged measurement, it’s no different than Shawne Merriman getting a 6’4 3/8 measurement. Wade is not physically that tall barefoot. Maybe in shoes and it was listed errently in that category
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Aug/18
@Canson Not a good picture. Wilton was closer to the camera and Wade dropping height a little. If you still think Wade was 6'2.75"-6'3 i can't change your opinion but to be specific that if he was measured at 6'3 3/4 for am height then the possible Wade has to be 6'3 1/4 for lowest barefoot. If he was only 6'3 the only possible could be double thick socks he wear to cheat for a measurement. But we don't know that for sure if others player do this as an extra 1/4 result for NBA draft measurment.
Canson said on 18/Aug/18
@Junior: that still doesn’t look right with a guy that only measured 6’5.25

Click Here
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Aug/18
Measure at 6'3 3/4 a specific time 7am with thick socks on is believable.
Canson said on 11/Aug/18
6’3.75 is a joke. He’s at absolute most 6’3 and likely a weak 6’3” as I’ve said all along based on how he looks with Barkley or Kobe or Jordan and even more so with Wilton Speight
Canson said on 11/Jul/18
@Bruce: that’s because Speight has significant camera advantage. Look closely. And He wouldn’t be listed 6’5 1/4 if he’s really 6’8”. Next to Wade, he doesn’t look more than his listing. Brock Osweiler was listed at 6’8” in college and was measured 6’6 7/8 at the combine (in the morning) meaning he’s probably closer to 6’6.5 really at a low. Not sure if Speight is morning or afternoon but, assuming he didn’t grow, he isn’t more than 6’5.25. The only question is if he is less than that (if this were in the morning). The difference is overblown but if you put a line above both heads it’s 2-3”. If you look closely, Wade’s head is way above his eyebrows. If Speight weren’t favored and they had the same angle Wade would not look that much shorter. It would be a little more than what Kobe has on him at best if even a noticeable difference. The fact that Wade is well above his eyebrows speaks to that. To be fair, Wade has been favored in many pics as well which he can actually look close to 6’4” at times such as when he looks only an inch shorter than Kobe when it’s more than that. Wade basically gave this away when he called Kobe 6’6-6’6.5 and himself 6’3.5. Kobe got measured at 6’4.75.

Click Here
Bruce said on 10/Jul/18
If Speight is 6'5 1/4, well let's say he's 6'6. There is no way Wade is anywhere close to 6'3 or even 6'2.5-.75 whatever base on that pic, his head barely make it to Speight's eyes, even if you take camera angle into consideration. Look at pics of 5'8 Rob next to 5'11 guys, the difference isn't even close compare to Wade and Speight in that picture.

Here's what 3.5 inches difference look like.
Click Here

That is at least a 5 inches difference in that picture of Wade and Speight.

If Speight is truly 6'6 and not 6'8 something but underlisted, Wade is a lucky to be 6'2.
Canson said on 8/Jul/18
: Speight actually isn’t even 6’6” his combine listing is 6’5 1/4 which usually occurs in the morning as well. Now maybe his was a Pro Day or something else as he doesn’t look less than 6’5”. We will have to wait until next year when he goes pro to see if it changes. But from comparing measurements the combine measurments typically run 3/8-1/2” taller than an afternoon height. Either way if Speight is 6’5.25 tops then Wade doesn’t even look 6’3 next to him

Canson said on 8/Jul/18
@Harry Sachs: Whatever you say. Not going to get into the pissing match over your stupid comment, and I haven’t been proven wrong on Wade’s height so you make absolutely no sense. Instead, you’re saying that because I’m not in the majority here, meaning don’t agree with everyone else, that I’m wrong. That’s the whole point of the website. And I actually didn’t say he’s only 6’2.5, I said 6’2.5-.75 and I have said before that the most he would be in my opinion is 6’3”. I’m essentially saying a weak 6’3 is how he looks. And I won’t be proven wrong because I’ve heard more than one person say he’s max 6’3 or 6’2.5-6’3 including Lebron James who played with him. And why would Erik Spoelstra and Otis Smith (Orlando’s GM) call him 6’4” on a good day. That would point to him being 6’3 at most.

And if you read carefully, Lorde below is saying that he’s 6” shorter than the other guy and that 6’3” in shoes is generous for him. Yet you don’t say a word to him when that estimate is way off yet you direct your bull**** at me
HarrySachs said on 7/Jul/18
It is funny how most people here believe Wade is over 6'3 but Canson thinks he is 6'2 1/2 But if you read what Canson types he always does this. He will believe whatever he wants to believe even when proven wrong.
Canson said on 7/Jul/18
@Rising: I’ve met Phelps. Rob has him just about accurate here. He wouldn’t be much higher than 6’2.5 or absolutely not Lower than 6’2.25. I agree Wade would edge Phelps by maybe a CM. Barkley is close to 2” on Wade but camera angle makes it appear more and Barkley is bigger than him physically
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Jul/18
@Christian: He did actually look close to Kobe's height at times: Click Here Click Here But the difference was bigger in other pics and he looks about 2" shorter than Jordan here: Click Here And I agree with Canson that Barkley looked about 2" taller, but I think Phelps would be shorter than Wade. Personally, I wouldn't guess Wade below 6'3" and I wouldn't guess Phelps taller than Rob's 6'2.5" listing.
Canson said on 30/Jun/18
@lorde: that’s not 6” or even close. Wilson has a larger head but Wade looks about what he should (6’2.5-.75) next to him accounting for camera etc. I’ve said all along as I know someone who was a scout in the NBA that was my former AAU coach that has met Wade more than once. My coach is 6’2” and said Wade was only slightly taller than him 1/2”-1” tops is what he said
lorde said on 29/Jun/18
Here's a supposedly 6'4 Wade with a 6'6 listed college football player Wilton Speight.

Click Here

That's at least a 6 inches difference between the 2. Now let's say Wilton's height is understated by 2 inches and that's he actually 6'8 (doubt it), there is no way Wade is anywhere close to 6'3 let's alone 6'4. 6'3 IN SHOES is GENEROUS for this guy.
Canson said on 11/Jun/18
@Christian: it’s at least a 2” difference between them. Barkley looks like he has him by about 2” as well
Canson said on 11/Jun/18
@Christian: Wade ranks right up there with Michael Phelps. Two guys that look nothing near 6’4” barefoot but are listed at it.

No chance he measured 6'3 3/4" barefoot.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 7/Jun/18
This is a fine listing. He does hold extremely well with Kobe Bryant.
Canson said on 1/Jun/18
@Junior: Carney’s look less than an inch imho. Wade may not be a full 1.5 but 1.25 at least imho. I wouldn’t be surprised if Wade pulled 6’3” as he would measure that at some point of the day. But it also wouldn’t surprise me if he’s 6’2.75. 6’3.25 is reasonable in the early morning imho. My thinking for the 6’3.75 is it’s a shoe height
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/May/18
Nobody really knows what kind of boots Wade wear but definitely not a thick kind like 1.5" and Carney dress shoes is no way 3/4 best to know at least 1". Given the variation of footwear or time of measurement of Wade i would say Wade is at least 6'3 1/4 to 3/8 (191.4) if he isn't as tall as 6'3 1/2. Carney look more like 5'11 7/8 with Rob.

Wade 191cm lowest
Carney 182.5cm lowest
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 29/May/18
@Canson

I can see Cam's shoes giving 5/8" but no higher. Boris had about 3/8" advantage if not a tad more.
Canson said on 26/May/18
@Christian: you may be right again! Maybe 5/8” but even then Boris had on a dress shoe which, effectively, doubles the difference.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 24/May/18
@Canson

I think Cam had even slightly thinner footwear than Carney. Carney has dress shoes which give maybe 3/4" while Cam had what were almost similar to slip-on moccasins, and those typically give no more than 1/2".
Canson said on 22/May/18
@Christian and Junior: that’s actually a lot of advantage he has with Carney. Carney has little footwear as Those would not add an inch.

@Christian: Coincidentally, the shoes Carney has on are similar to the ones Cam Newton is wearing with Boris in their pics together.
Canson said on 22/May/18
@Christian: good point! My guess for Wade is 190ish
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 22/May/18
@Junior

Wade had some footwear advantage with his boots though Click Here if you deduct the advantage he's rougly 3" taller.
Canson said on 20/May/18
@Junior: the only problem is that a guy like Caron Butler is 6’5 and easily has 2” on Wade. I’ve played ball against Caron and have seen him off the court and he’s about 196cm. That’s why I can believe Kobe being 195 as Caron is a cm or half inch taller. Wade is a solid 4” shorter than Lebron or Haslem too
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/May/18
@Christian @Canson Wade look at least 6'3 1/4-3/8 with 5'11.75-6'0 Reeve Carney that Rob had a picture with.

Click Here 5'11 7/8 would be true for Carney

Click Here: I can believe 191-191.5cm but 6'3 seem too low.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 12/May/18
@Junior

Wade at 6'3.5" might be a bit too high because Lebron's likely not 6'7.25" at his low, it was an early measurement. 6'6.75" for him and 6'2.75"-6'3" for Wade.
Canson said on 12/May/18
@Junior: but next to Ray Allen that’s an entire inch between he and Wade. Lebron may be 6’7” flat at a low but maybe only 6’6.75 at a low but the difference with he and Wade looks at least a solid 4” difference imho. Maybe 4.25. The thing is people have met Kevin Love and said he’s closer to 6’7”. So even if that means 6’7.25-.5 that puts Lebron around 6’6.75. The most I could see for Wade is a flat 6’3” and that looks iffy in my opinion
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/May/18
Atually there is only about 3.75" between Wade and Lebron. There are pictures both of them walking barefoot on the neach. Def not accurately 8.9cm in difference but a 1/8 more. I start to believe Wade is 6'3.5" not lower.

Click Here:
Canson said on 7/May/18
@Tunman: I agree with part of what you said. Only thing is Wade was in the same draft class so those two would’ve had morning measurements as well. Now Melo could’ve possibly grown or the 6’6.25 could’ve been a few hours earlier and he may dip close to 6’6”. He’s definitely not under 6’6” and I would say he can look 6’6-6’6.25. He may be a strong 6’6” to be honest. He looked about that. But Bogans measured 6’4.5 in 2002 and 6’4.25 in 2003 when He Wade and Melo were drafted. Not sure what time of day it was held. But I can see Bogans no lower than maybe a full 6’4 at a low. He was the exact same height as I was at 6’4” when I played him in high school and may still be the exact same as I saw him since. However 1/4” difference I probably wouldn’t spot. Wade could conceivably be 6’3 at a low like you said. 6’3”ish I could buy that. But 6’3.75 looks high esp being Bradley Beal looks taller and Beal is 6’3” range possibly. I almost wonder was Wade’s measurement a shoe height possibly like Ben Wallace’s. Wallace shows a 6’7.75 but he himself admitted to being 6’6/6’7 and he looks it with 6’9.75 Rasheed Wallace. John Wall is questionable as well. 6’2.75 doesn’t add up next to Beal or Porter etc. I know two people who have met Wall and one is 6’3 and said he was at least an inch shorter if not more then one guy at 6’0” said he looked about an inch or two taller. The former has met Beal as well and said they were the same height or that Beal may have him by a touch. Beal at 6’3.25 was probably a morning height at the time but he is said to have grown a bit so he may be a legit 6’3 range at a low now. He can look 6’3.5 at times.
Tunman said on 6/May/18
Could look a solid 4"smaller than Lebron James,again further proof for him being closer to 6'3 than 4.
@Canson
I agree with Bogans and Anthony measuring around their draft measurement but I still think Wade was measured barefoot but much earlier,actually it's surprising he wasn't listed at 6'5 as it would have been typical.Anyways for him to be sub 6'3 means Lebron being sub 6'7...hmmm,to be fair,LBJ also seems among the ones fairly listed like Durant I wouldn't argue anything under 6'7 for him.190,5-91 is still my opinion for Wade.
Canson said on 2/May/18
@Tunman: I don’t buy that Wade measured that barefoot. He doesn’t look even as tall as Bradley Beal. Beal is a 6’3 range guy according to those who have met him. I live in the DC area myself. It’s the same with John Wall who I know 2 or 3 people have met and say he’s lucky if he’s 6’2” barefoot. One of these guys is 6’3”. Also Ben Wallace who shows a 6’7.75 measurement and admitted he’s 6’6/6’7. I’m not sure they measured in the afternoon tho. Carmelo Anthony Keith Bogans and Kirk Hinrich were also drafted in 2003 and I have met and or played ball against all 3 and all three look much closer to their draft measurements (maybe at best 1/4” lower in person) than Wade. However I haven’t met Wade but comparing those who I have met (3 are listed above) I would put Wade sub 6’3 and this fits with how Lebron has described him. I met TJ ford and he looked more 5’10 than 5’11. He was drafted same year as them

6'2.5"is too low since he was measured at 6'3.75".Since he loses at least 0.75" and probably 1" and was measured early in the morning he's likely 0.5"-0.75"shorter at night.So 6'3-3.25"or about 191.

I can see it in 6'3 he looks shorter with jordan
Canson said on 24/Apr/18
@Joe: that doesn’t add up to me (at least). Morning height for most NBA players means an hour out of bed and the others in that draft class that I have met appear around their pre draft. For example, Keith Bogans is my height (at worst he’s maybe a solid 6’4). Carmelo Anthony is at worst 6’6” but could be 6’6.25. Kirk Hinrich looked around 189 imho as well. Wade if he were 6’3.75 after an hour would mean 6’3.25. That looks a bit high for him imho
Dream(5'9.5 said on 23/Apr/18

Similar scenario to Ben Wallace who also shows a barefoot measurement of 6’7.75 but admitted he’s 6’6-6’7”. Wade is more than likely 6’2.5-6’2.75 barefoot
Canson said on 16/Feb/18
I’m not seeing Wade anywhere near 6’4” in this pic even if he didn’t lean. Hamilton is prob 6’5.5 Pierce 6’6” Carter 6’5” all are significantly taller than Wade. Not to mention Pierce has Ray Allen by at least a full 2” if not a hair more and Ray has Wade by a good 2 or 3cm.

im sorry i just dont see wade at 6 3.75 barefoot he doesnt look that big plus he looks 2 inches shorter than jordan which would be legit if you went by their listings , yes the 6'6 jordan is 2inches taller than 6'4 wade,,, only problem is jordan isnt 6'6 so if ya put mike at6'4.75 then wade is 6 2.75 or jordan is 6'5 and wade is 6'3 whatever way you want to slice it,,, but i just dont see him measuring 6'4 in his barefeet which is basically what he measured,,,,6 3.75

Seems at 16 he was 5ft 8 then through age 17 went to 6ft 2, a decent spurt.
Canson said on 3/Feb/18
@Junior: 6’3.25 would be a good start imho even tho I don’t even think he holds that after the first hour or so. Could be as low as 6’2.5 (more likely 6’2.75 190cm) but 6’3” as about as tall as I can realistically see.
Canson said on 1/Feb/18
Doesn’t look any higher than 6’3” next to Bosh or Charles Barkley or Kobe or Jordan
Junior Hernandez said on 1/Feb/18
Overall i think Wade should get a downgrade at 6'3 3/8 and 6'3 3/4 just a morning measurement and seriously he can't hold this height not even 192cm.

@Checker: I’d lean more toward shoes being that height. 190cm barefoot. He’s not a strong 6’3” guy and if he measures 6am means Melo and Bogans too and both of them look nearer their pre draft heights in public

Wade got measured at 6 AM Id say
Canson said on 23/Dec/17
He’s struggles to even look a full 6’3” barefoot very clearly if you see him with Charles Barkley or Kobe or Jordan or Caron Butler
Mike said on 19/Dec/17
All these same ridiculous comments saying Wade is shorter than he is because this is a height site and we must insist everyone is 2" shorter than their listed height to prove our own sad relevance. I have seen Wade up close after a game and he's a solid 6'3" AT LEAST, almost 6'4" without shoes and ripped and solid. He's a big strong NFL football player looking dude. Quit trying to minimize him for no reason.
Canson said on 10/Dec/17
I have a former AAU coach that used to work as a scout and has met many players and Wade is one of them. I met up with him this week and we were talking about Lebron and Wade He himself is 6’2 and said Wade isn’t really much taller than he is. Estimated him as 6’2/6’3 barefoot and that hes probably barely 6’4” in sneakers. He did estimate Lebron to be about 6’7” though in bare feet and said he can see him 6’8” in sneaks
Canson said on 27/Nov/17
Agreed LeBlanc
LeBlanc said on 27/Nov/17
Update: after several picture comparison, I’ve came to a conclusion that he’s a legit 190cm(6’2.75”) no more than that. And he’s 6’4” in basketball shoes.

@Junior: that’s kinda how I see it. Maybe Kobe 195cm or so and MJ 194.3 (6’4.5). To me I see at most a cm. I won’t discount what you said maybe his wife undeemeasrued but doubt it’s more than maybe a mm or two. 6’4.75 is 194.9. Wade with Kobe is about 2 solid ones or 5cm imho. 190 vs 195. Jordan and wade 194.3 vs 190.
Junior said on 8/Nov/17
@Canson, Kobe does make Wade look flat 190cm while Jordan make Wade look 6'3. Maybe you're right on a point that Wade min is 190cm if we go with 194.4cm for Jordan lowest.

That can look a full 2” diff with Kobe and even more than just 3.5” with Lebron. I honestly can’t see more than 6’2.5-.75. If he’s holding a solid 6’3” in the evening I’d be very surprised
Canson said on 24/Oct/17
@Junior: I believe Kobe 6’4.75 at his lowest of course he isn’t much lower than that. I believe it because I saw someone else on the internet post that he’s 195 and a pinch taller as well. Now 6’5 is how he’s gonna look esp in a higher shoe he would be 6’6” in a sneaker but I also go off KROC a poster here who is a strong 6’5 (6’5-6’5.25) said when he met Kobe had him by about 1/2” and said wade was lucky if he’s 6’3”. Now a friend of mine is a scout and said Kobe is 6’5ish and that wade in person wasn’t significantly taller than him and he’s 6’2”. I see Caron Butler by both and he still edges Kobe and Caron isn’t over 196 as I’ve met him. Wade looks 190 with butler most of the time and with Russell Westbrook or rose I’m hard pressed to see 6’3”. Keith Bogans is also 6’4 (played against him) he’s taller than wade pretty good too

Lets make a case to be fair we could suspect why Kobe Bryant always easily look taller than 6'4.75" to people, maybe he measure 195cm with a little relax posture and a standard straight posture he would pass for 6'5" for high chance because this happen to some people too, it's strange that Kobe often look 6'5.5" with lots of celebrities and musicians but look a proper 6'5 with his team mates. Dwyane Wade i can see at his lowest 6'3 and sometimes standing loose posture may look a 6'2 plus guy, 190cm is too low for Dwayne and i agree with you i can see a full 2" between Kobe and Wade and sometimes more like 1.75". I would rule out in metric 190.5cm for Wade and 195.5cm for Kobe at their lowest. Wade could have measure early morning likely 191.9cm range get rounded up as 6'3.75" - 192.4cm that is why the lowest he look is not 6'3.25" but 6'3" flat.
Canson said on 21/Oct/17
@Junior: I know in 2008 specified that it was afternoon 2009 morning but other years before not sure. Wade looks like a shoe height. Kobe looks 2” taller imho.
Junior said on 21/Oct/17
I think if Kobe had a chance to be at his low 195cm then Dwyane Wade would have been under 192cm around 6'3.25" and dipping lowest 6'3. I see 4-4.5cm between them. Now i'm deeply curios about how the NBA draft measure their players is it all in the morning not long out of bed, with without thick socks or just a mid day with shoes that taken off insoles measure them and put them "without shoes in the Draftexpress site or what?
Canson said on 20/Oct/17
@leblanc: that may be too low but 190 looks right. He’s 6’3.75 in shoes
LeBlanc said on 20/Oct/17
He is exactly 189cm
Canson said on 27/Sep/17
Agree with I'm 171. Wade imho devalues 6'4". He looks 4-5" at times shorter than Lebron in the highlights they showed when Cleveland signed him. The thing is when someone has broad shoulders and good posture they will appear taller than they are at times. I have a 6'2.5ish friend who gets 6'4 or 6'5 all the time while I've been guessed as 6'6 just as recently as over the weekend and I was in a casual shoe.

Canson said on 4/Sep/17
@Rising: but for Kobe he's listed 6'4.75 and has measured that as well so that shouldn't be a guess it is essentially assessing him a height based on how he looks with someone else who has not been verifiably measured. If that's his low and he claims it and measured it that's how tall he is
Canson said on 4/Sep/17
@Rising: as far as Gary Payton I agree but that again as Christian and I both have said puts Jordan no more than maybe 6'4.5 maybe even a flat 194cm. He looks less than that with Payton really but I'll give him 6'4.5 or 3/8 at night since he looks that usually on the court and is 6'4/6'5 or 6'4 and change to almost anyone who meets him. I can see him getting a 6'5" guess if he's in his sneaks and/or is being assessed by a morning measured as a pair of Jordan's add 1.2-1.4" for some. Meaning 6'5 5/8-6'5.75 is possible in sneaks as is a tad higher like 6'5.8-.9 if they're really 1.4" which is why he's listed 6'6" to begin with anything 6'5.5 or above morning or evening will net 6'6". I'm the same size as is bobby3342 and both of us listed 6'6 on rosters from a low of 6'4.25-.375 evening

Canson said on 4/Sep/17
@Rising:

Jones couldn't have been 6'5.5. The angle could be a bit off but he's at least 1.5" less than Cedric ceballos. Ceballos was listed 6'6" when he first came in the league and didn't get put up to 6'7" until he went to LA in 94. My thinking is maybe he is 6'6" barefoot but quite possibly 6'5.5 himself as he was a bit shorter than Oliver miller was as well. Also to note this Ceballos is taller than barkley is by a bit prob an inch or inch and a half

@Rising: I'll def say this. We disagree on heights but you definitely know basketball the game itself! I have always thought that the trade for Rice was a bit foolish. Phil didn't like Rice much when he took that tram over due to his style of ball. Rice didn't fit the prototypical Scottie pippen type that he always had so he went a lot with fox instead. Sometimes George or horry at the 3 with grant or samaki walker if they played the 4. I think with Jones it was more a move on potential of Kobe to appease him and let him grow as they saw he was a little better but when Kobe first arrived Jones was a starter already and was better his first couple years than Kobe. They gave up on that team of Van exel Ej Kobe Horry and Shaq. EJ was a great defensive player too but I can't argue results as they won 3 almost right after until Kobe became greedy and he and shaq both were guilty of their ulterior motives to an extent and PJ did nothing to rectify he encouraged the tension and nuturrd it lol
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Sep/17
I forgot to add regarding Kidd. I assume he's either 6'2.75" or 6'3". I have seen him play years ago when he was a Net, including pre-game warm ups, but not closer than say 20 feet probably, so I couldn't make a precise guess. Kidd looked about the same height as Terrell Owens back in 2010, was generally similar to Gary Payton when seen together as well and also measured up pretty well to wings compared to other point guards, even big wings like Grant Hill when they posed for their co-ROY. But he could look short with 6'6" Penny during the Backcourt 2000 days so I'd say as short as 6'2.5" is at least possible, but I'm fine with around 190 range. But like I said, I sometimes see the "short" Wade so I leave open the possibility he was measured closer to his high than low and would be more like 6'3". However, I've seen him look at least his measurement a number of times as well so I haven't seen conclusive enough evidence yet for me to go against his measurement, or at least give him any less than 6'3.5".
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Sep/17
@Canson: The angle alone is too high to make it a precise photo. I'm not just saying that because it's your photo either, I acknowledged that the angle of that 2007 AS full pic of Kobe and Wade had an angle a bit low for my liking(though imo, to a lesser degree) and the other side by side had a straight angle and wasn't full, but supported the small difference shown in the full pic. With that said, there are solid photos that show at least the 1.5" difference you mention, but then there's ones like those two 2007 AS photos that show only around 2 cm and the 2009 all-star side by side that show maybe an inch max. Butler looked only 1.5" taller to me in that full Miami group photo and surprisingly, much less in that side by side of just the two of them, which wasn't full. I'm not convinced Kobe is taller than Jordan, but he could be by a small amount, which is what it looked in the photo they posed for in street clothes 10 years ago. The 2 look almost identical, but it looks like Kobe can just edge him by a fraction. But I stand by Jordan at 6'4.75"-6'5", especially after seeing him with Obama as well as Rodman. Jordan looked taller in that back to back with Wade than Kobe often does, but Kobe probably has looked at least that tall with Wade, possibly taller. I don't know, I'll have to go through all the good pics I can find. As for Eddie Jones, I'll try to see if I can find any good media day photos or even pre-game photos with Kobe to compare because I haven't thought of his height too much, but in 2 photos with Caron Butler on Media Day for the 2003-2004 season, he looks pretty much identical in one and 2 cm taller in another. Rough guess for now would be 6'5.5", but don't hold me to that because I may very well change my mind significantly. Btw, Lakers should have never given away Jones for 10 cents on the dollar. Rice was almost finished by that point, especially after elbow surgeries, got lit up on D and never really grasped the triangle in it's entirety, especially off the ball. Jones even shot 3s better in that first full year out of LA, iirc and was 4 years younger. Those two were flexible enough at 2 and 3, plus Jones could have been great focusing on D and being the true 3rd option Shaq and Kobe never really had. I mean they won 3 titles, but they basically got rid of a ton of talent and got almost nothing in return. I can't help but think at least holding on to that much talent in its prime(Campbell, Jones and Van Exel), they could have if nothing else, got a better offer. I mean they ended up almost announcing they'd let Rice walk because he became a malcontent. Payton on the Lakers a few years later wound up being pretty similar, imo although Malone was interesting on that team when healthy.

And people can lose another 1/4" from say noon to the night. Kobe's knees alone make him a decent candidate for that, but in general, there is some variation of a decent amount with not only total loss(Jenny loses a full inch, iirc while Rob loses something like 5/8" or 3/4") but I believe people can lose different amounts in different proportions as well. But I don't always mean statements like that for certain, it's just speculation on my part. What I'm saying is seeing him with guys like Magic and Obama, he looks tall enough that I think he may have been the full 6'5" during a typical time for a measurement(when most might be measured by a doctor). But it's such a tiny figure that there's any number of possible explanations. Vanessa could have done a respectable measurement, but particularly without having a stadiometer at home, she probably used a book and tape measure and there undoubtedly exists a margin of error there. Or even the floor could be off that much(having worked a lot of carpentry, particularly when renovating or tearing down someone else's work, it's appalling how far from level some carpenters consider acceptable, but even good work can become less level over time). So again, when we're talking about 1/8" and stuff like that, it's simply too precise to say with any certainty. Vanessa may have seen the tape around the 3/4" mark, but it could have been slightly above or below -- I doubt she was thinking in terms of 1/8" or 1/16" -- so like I say sometimes I speculate or think out loud on these type of things. I believe most people when it comes to height would generally consider only to the nearest 1/4"(the NBA combine does not list anything more precise).

Btw, for reference, when I speak of heights, I usually go with the loose "lunchtime" criteria Rob does and assume everyone wakes sometime between 5-7 AM. But of course, for many celebrities, their schedules are dramatically different so there's another margin of error. I really have no way of knowing exactly how much Kobe shrinks after say, from say, the 5th or 6th hour he's up until the evening or even night. I assume it's a small fraction, but whether we're talking 1/4" or 1/8", I really can't say so like I say, don't take everything I say in that respect as some sort of final guess, but rather speculation. You can take my 6'5" guess for Kobe as my final one and consider me guessing at lunchtime or whatever the equivalent would be for Kobe. In general, that's how I'm guessing unless I specifically state otherwise as I sometimes do.
Canson said on 2/Sep/17
@Rising: something you said below that I have to question. If Kobe is more of a 6'5" midday guy he wouldn't be 6'4.75 at night. Maybe he's a 6'4 7/8 midday or between 3/4-7/8 or maybe he dips below 3/4 at night. Typically one losing 3/4" or even an inch would be under 1/2" by 3 hours on their feet and height loss would be even more progressive for them. I can agree Kobe 6'4.75 (195) Caron butler 6'5 1/8 (196) to me. But Jordan is shorter than Kobe not taller he's 6'4.5 whereas Wade is 1.5"-1.75 less than Jordan is and 1.75-2" less than Kobe. He appears 2+ less than butler imho whereas Eddie Jones doesn't appear more than kobe's height. He's not as tall as butler imho
Canson said on 30/Aug/17
@Rising: I'm not seeing how it's that distorted it clearly shows Kobe taller and if anything it looks less because he isn't directly in front of Wade. Now as far as Wade and Kidd I'm not seeing Wade significantly taller than him. They look the same to me or very similar. Now of course there is the possibility of wade edging him but it's maybe 1/2" meaning Kidd may be 6'2.25-.75 Wade 6'2.5-6'3. Tough to say. I wholeheartedly put butler as a strong 6'5". I'd say 6'5-6'5.25 so no argument there but he is taller than Eddie Jones or at worst the same. Jones looks shorter than butler and looks the same height as Kobe does. Look at this pic with the lakers next to Cedric Ceballos who is 6'5 or 6'6 himself. Maybe ced is a legit 6'6" but means Jones (who is disadvantaged ill admit) is still about 6'4.5 prob but no taller I doubt. As far as wade being an early morning I can't see that being much the case because Carmelo was drafted same draft as him. My opinion is that maybe Wade has his shoe measurement in the barefoot column. Wade is not almost 6'5" in shoes. butler is taller than Kobe is by a hair. if Kobe has Wade by minimum 1.5 (I see a full 2 with him and nearer 2.5" with butler).

Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Aug/17
@Canson, that pic is pretty well distorted with Kobe from the high angle and Kobe's head being closer making it look abnormally large. Christian's pic is a bit better, but Kobe is closer. Riley has obviously met and seen MJ numerous times, but it doesn't mean he can determine his height by eye down to the half inch. Honestly, not many people can do that. Rob usually leaves the possibility of a fraction margin of error in his own in person estimates and he estimates height for a living.

@Christian: Why would that pic make "zero chance" when I post 3 pics where he looks within an inch or less of Kobe? One of them even being a full pic, albeit at a bit of a low angle(though usually that would exaggerate the taller man's height as it's an old movie trick you can see used with Eeastwood in those spaghetti westerns) and the others aren't full, but at least perfectly side by side and when taken with the full pic, provide pretty compelling evidence of not too big a difference. I believe the difference is a bit bigger than my pics show since I believe Kobe is at least 3 cm taller, possibly 1.5", but if anything, you take the pics that show a big difference and mine, which show not much difference and take them both at face value, something in between would make sense. It's at least unlikely Kobe is 2"+ taller as it is he's 1" or less taller. There are other pics that show them close, but they're on court photos, which I think as a general rule, can be more deceptive than ones off court. I'll give you a couple examples: Click Here Click Here Click Here

I'm certain Wade is taller than Jason Kidd who looks near his 6'3" measurement or at worst, he'd be a 190 cm type guy, imo. Of course, I was going to post Wade with worse posture looking a good 3.5" taller than CP3 and guessing it could be 4", particularly with equal posture, but I just saw we don't agree on CP3's height lol so that won't get us anywhere. As for [Caron] Butler, I see 1.5" max over Wade. I think Eddie Jones is taller, though as he looks taller than Caron in those Heat media day photos. I'm sure Caron is around 6'5" so we agree on that. I see no point in arguing whether he's the 1/4" over they measured him at or not. I do think Kobe is more a 6'5" midday guy, though and maybe drops to 6'4.75" so I'd expect a difficult to spot difference.

As for Harden, I think he can look 6'4" or close to it with Westbrook and Durant: Click Here I do think that photo favors Harden's side, but I've posted other pics of Harden and Durant, which I think both point to Harden being closer to 6'4" than 6'3" and Durant not being much over 6'9", if at all. This one I think establishes the solid height advantage over Westbrook better without any advantage at least as far as I can tell: Click Here

As for He Got Game, I obviously remember the recruitment scene with Fox, but not the height difference so I'll try to look it up. I'm sure Fox is somewhere between 6'5.5" and 6'6", but I've not formed an opinion where he falls in that range. It probably would be a better comparison for pinpointing than comparing to a much shorter Denzel, but at the same time, we can at least say how an under 6'4" guy would look with 6'0" vs a 6'4"+ guy, though. I haven't seen the film in years, though, but I do remembering noting how Ray towered Denzel. To play Devil's Advocate, I will say it's at least not impossible that if Ray didn't tower Denzel as much as they thought a star prospect should, they may have used angles to do the rest.

I'm not saying it's impossible Wade's measurement could have been earlier than a more typical midday one, but I don't think it's enough for him to have been a full inch taller and I just really can't see less than a strong 6'3" at worst. As for reddit users, well as I've said in the past, I really don't consider that stuff much. If I know the person, it's a different story, but I'm even more skeptical of unverified claims on the internet.
Canson said on 27/Aug/17
@Rising: this pic with Wade and Kobe. Kobe has him by at least 1.5" and is not even directly In front of him to where we can accurately see it. Imho it is really a full 2" like Christian said below. I don't have Wade over 6'2.75 really never did. I see where Arby below has said he's 6'3" but 1/4" diff isn't anything to notice nor do we know what time of day Arby measured.

I still saw a bigger difference between Jordan and Wade. I wouldn't guess Jordan under 6'4.75" personally, but Pat Riley did say he measured 6'4.5" when he entered the league. I don't know if Riley was remembering precisely or if this was just something he heard years ago, but that figure has been mentioned for him

Riley has interviewed and met MJ too. MAybe he falls in between the 2 1/2-3/4 and Riley guessed he looked between 6'4-6'5. But typically if you don't dip below 195 cm in a day you will almost always look 6'5 to anyone. 1/4" difference isn't easy to spot.

Canson said on 15/Aug/17
@Rising: I always saw 2ish with Butler and Wade. Wade looked shorter than Eddie Jones by a couple inches too. Eddie looks about the same as Kobe imho about 195cm. I'd give Butler 196cm max but not less. He's a legit 6'5" maybe even a hair over it. I had him as about 2cm taller than me basically between 1/2"-1". And I always based myself off 6'4.5 previously so I'd give him about 6'5 1/8ish plus he looked only a hair above Kobe and wasn't easy to spot it barely enough to notice. 6'3.75 is awfully high for him imho. And that's the average here when it was 6'3.4 at one point meaning people are guessing him over 6'4 which is a odd. He doesn't look anything near a legit 6'4" imho.

@Rising: yea not sure about in He Got Game because I thought he looked a good bit taller too but then with Fox he looked shorter. I know Rob has said fox looked more 6'5.5 than 6'6 and that's how he looks next to Kobe. I can give Ray a full 6'4 maybe but wouldn't surprise me if he's 6'3.75. I think a full 6'4 may put Wade about 6'3" flat. But I agre on Kobe and MJ. Kobe 195 Jordan 194-194.5 imho. I always thought Kobe looked taller even before I knew about the 6'4.75. I had heard before from a friend once he was 6'5" in person but like we were saying before that's hardly any difference

I don't know if Riley was remembering precisely or if this was just something he heard years ago, but that figure has been mentioned for him. I would think Wade is taller than Westbrook and closer to Harden's height, but I'll have to look up good photos of Wade and each. I can buy 6'4.75" as a low for Kobe(I have no idea how much his typical low would differ from his absolute low), but I think he could measure 6'5" around noon. Wade and Butler honestly look about their measurements together in these pics: Click Here Click Here I'll keep looking at Wade with other players. I've heard the short rumors and agree he looks short with Kobe, but I'm not convinced he's that far from his measurement yet. If Shaq is 7'0.25", he made Wade look a weak 6'3" at best, though. Even with Shaq in street clothes not wearing basketball sneakers. I think Ray Allen can look pretty close to 6'5", though. He towered Denzel in He Got Game. I think we both agreed on Denzel at a solid 6'.
Canson said on 12/Aug/17
@Rising Force: I've seen many 6'2" range guys on Reddit say Wade is their height. I don't think he's a low 6'2" however I do believe he's near 6'3". He never looks any taller than Russell Westbrook (at least noticeably taller). I think wade looks about the same with MJ as he does with Kobe typically. I think Kobe is reasonably listed 6'4.75. I do agree Jordan is shorter than him. I think Jordan is my height maybe 1/8" taller as he is maybe nearer 6'4.5. I say that because most people around my height plus or minus 2" on Reddit etc and people personally that I know have said Jordan is either about my height or that he's 6'4" or that he's 6'4-6'5. Wade on the other hand tho I believe Kobe has him by closer to 2". I saw one of them coming to mid court to shake hands and Kobe looked two inches taller (angle was a bit above their heads so it may have been exaggerated). But Seeing posters that have met him such as KROC who is 6'5" say he was lucky to be 6'3" and also Arby below said he's the same height as him 6'3" I have to believe he isn't more than maybe 6'3". I guess if I am really underestimating him he may be 6'3". I've also seen an article with Otis Smith and one with Spoelstra say he's 6'4" on a good day. A guy at 6'3.5+ isn't gonna be 6'4" on a good day typically. not tonmention that I have met And played against Caron Butler before and he is about his listed height of 6'5.25 (196cm flat at worst). Wade isn't just 1.5" lower than Butler is that's a good 2" and with a guy like Ray Allen that's a full inch as well. I saw where Bobby3342 said Ray is 192/193 which is also consistent with how KROC gauges him in a diff thread "about 6'4" which I have to believe because the NBA will list the players in sneakers typically. I've also seen pics with Wade and Lebron that's at least a full 4" difference if not more. Lebron has more height on Wade than Barkley does on Kenny smith
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Aug/17
Wade does honestly look his measurement here if Kobe is even just 195 cm: Click Here First 2 pics are 2007 and the 3rd looks like 2009 to me. He's actually making Kobe look 6'4.5" there even though I could buy Kobe a legit 6'5" and Wade around 6'3.5". But put them side by side and they can look closer than you'd expect. Strangely, Wade looked much shorter with Jordan than he does with Kobe and Kobe was no shorter than Jordan, possibly a little taller and in 2007 no less, the same year of those first 2 pics with Wade. Strange to say the least.

@Shane: Christian was throwing that out as a possibility because as SJH mentioned Wall doesn't look that tall in person. SJH of course used a later height around Noon but still said Wall looked 6'1.5-.75 in person. In fact I've talked to two people here in DC who have met him one 6'3" one 6'0" both said 6'1-6'2. I factually have said the same thing before because nobody measures perfectly to the fraction so they are would round up if under 5/8. But nothing specific said he definitely did get rounded up

@Christian: one thing I will say about Wade is that he gave it all he had too earlier in his career. Never been the same since the knees became a bit bulky and he put on some weight. Funny thing is in that draft class, he and Bosh had more success (hardware in the NBA) than Melo had. I would've had Melo being the more successful of the three and never had Wade being the key to that 2006 team that won it. But Melo got his claims on Olympic Hardware!!! Of course the one they annointed in high school has exceeded expectations and even tho I don't put him ahead of MJ or even close (I have a hard enough time with him above Kobe) lebron has to me exceeded his expectations or (sadly) lived up to all of the burden they put on an 18 year old coming out of high school saying he's gonna be that great. Now I wanna see if Lavar Ball is right about his son's predictions and if he can learn to be the next Magic! At least he has The original Showtime as his boss!

@Christian: i saw something on the net that he didn't want to be listed any taller because he wanted to be a guard only and not a swingman but that same thing said he measured 6'3.75 in a low shoe as well. I can't see him over maybe a flat 6'3" like the one poster below said and to me can look 190 at times. That's assuming Arby is 6'3" at his lowest as well
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 18/Jun/17
I wonder what kept Wade from receiving a 6'5" billing. Most NBA players who measure 3/4 of an inch (with sneakers) get rounded up to the next inch, but Wade got rounded down. Reminds me of NFL Combine a bit. I've seen quite a few NFL players get rounded down despite being measured 5/8", 3/4" or even 7/8". Examples are Kaepernick (measured 6'4 5/8" listed 6'4") Eli Manning (measured 6'4 3/4" listed 6'4") and Matt Ryan (measured 6'4 3/4" listed 6'4")
Arby said on 16/Jun/17
I've seem him before passing through Phoenix and he's the exact same height as I am a solid 6'3, not 6'2 like some are saying. I am 6'3 on the nose as of my measurement two weeks back even close to 50.
Canson said on 13/Jun/17
@Young Blood: anyone can say anything. Not my site it's rob's. But my honest opinion is with all celebs not Wade only is to think objectively and not just say because someone else (wade as an example) is 6'3.75 so and so must be 6'5 or 6'6 when they aren't really (something Harry Sachs also mentioned on Garnett's page). Or because Kobe measured 6'4.75 it must be at midnight etc. the logic is only that if someone measures shorter than expected then to keep the other person neutral inflation by deduction which to me is utter bull**** because you're not only calling an honest person a liar it's now making everyone believe the liar took Wade to me looks 190cm at best but a fair trade is 6'3 since he was listed by the NBA 6'3.75 and has even said he's 6'4 on a good day before as has SPOELstra. No 6'3.75 person is that. But that's all my opinion
YoungBlood said on 12/Jun/17
@Canson can we just say that Wade is a very strong 6'3 with no shoes?
Canson said on 10/Jun/17
@SJH: I agree Jordan's 1.5-2" on Wade. My guess Wade tops 6'3" maybe 6'2.75 looks more accurate and Jordan 6'4.5. Kobe and Barkley both appear 2" on Wade. Barkley 6'4 5/8 would make it 1 7/8" and Kobe prob a solid 2". 6'4.75. Wade is guessed by 6'2" guys as almost the same height and looking at him isn't much taller than Westbrook is
Canson said on 10/Jun/17

S.J.H said on 9/Jun/17
MJ is solid 1.5 top on Wade. If Jordan listed at 6'5 therefore Wade is need a downgrade at 6'3.5 infact MJ height have been rounded up by rob so Wade is dead on 6'3.25 and worst part another fact he is over 1.25 shorter barkley and kobe. This is why CP3 is not higher than 5'11 and Wade 6'3
Canson said on 7/Jun/17
Well said Christian! It does work both ways. I'd say for heights maybe 6'2-6'7 we may be a bit more keen and maybe along with Ali Baba and then some of the others such as Johan even tho he's a bit under also has decent estimates same with Tall In the Saddle
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 7/Jun/17
@Canson

But someone who's short can guess shorter heights more easily than guys like us, SJH or bobby3342. But I think the best height to guess NBA players when meeting them personally is around 6'5"-6'6", because the average for an NBA player's probably 6'5.5" (It's been said that it's 6'7", but that's a shoe measurement + rounding)
Canson said on 5/Jun/17
@Christian: living in the DC area I have to agree with others SJH. I've heard two people who've met him now here one of which 6'3@ solid (falls to 190.4 at night) and a 6'0" guy say Wall is no taller than 6'1.5-6'2" barefoot. The 6'3 said he was 1-1.5" shorter. In the words of bobby3342 I'm just a truth teller lol not intentionally downgrading someone but since I am honest almost to the T on my own height I call others how I see them. But it's also being very tall like you are your estimates are usually pretty good and you think more objectively and can see the tall heights better than someone smaller
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 3/Jun/17
@Canson

Wall was maybe measured at 6'2 5/8" straight out of bed (rounded to 6'2.75" because NBA Combine doesn't use 8th fractions) if he's 187cm at his low aacording to SJH. That's the only possible way I could see it. Or, either it's possible that some of the measurements are slightly inflated, or SJH underestimated his height when he met him. It's hard to imagine that an almost 190cm measured person would drop to 187cm, especially when the measurement took place at least an hour after the person woke up.
Canson said on 30/May/17
@Christian: yea that's straight from the NBA pre draft both measurements. They have a 6'3.75/6'4.75. Wade doesn't look 6'5" in shoes is my opinion. He doesn't look as tall as even Bradley Beal at times or ray Allen nor almost Kobe or Jordan. They have a John wall pre draft 6'2.75/6'4. But have seen SJH say he looked 187cm in person as well as someone who himself 6'3" that I know said he's 1-1.5" taller than Wall as well as on the net that a 6'4" guy (Reddit) said Wall is 6'2" range in shoes. Seeing Wall by a guy like Paul pierce who is 6'6" Wall is at least 4" shorter than he is and shorter than Beal who received 6'3.25 Morning. My guess is Beal may have grown as he supposedly looks that height in person now according to the same person who met both

Canson said on 24/Apr/17
@Christian: my theory is that was in shoes. That's just me because he doesn't look that tall next to a guy like Barkley Kobe or Jordan. Maybe he's a full 6'3 and what you said 6'3.75/6'3". The thing that gets me with his measurement is I've met Kirk Hinrich and TJ Ford and Melo and Keith Bogans (played against) and all but maybe Ford (looked more 5'10) look their draft listed heights from the same class as wade. Hinrich looked 6'2" range so maybe he's 6'2.5 whereas melo looked strong 6'6" like 198.5 ish maybe and bogans is from VA like me and my age. He's a good 6'4" 193-194 or maybe even as tall as me. I maybe was at most about a cm taller if even that much. Wade to me looks about 190cm next to others

------

I don't get how the 6'3.75" measurement was in shoes when Rob's description says Wade was measured 6'4.75" in sneakers in the 2003 Draft.
Canson said on 29/May/17
@HarrySachs: foreman is also much older. Wade isn't as tall as Sprewell or Tom Brady etc
HarrySachs said on 28/May/17
There is a picture of George Foreman and Wade one Foreman's IG page. Wade is taller. So if you think Wade is only 6'3 then Foreman would be under 6'3.

@Christian: the other piece of it is what Bobby3342 mentioned below. Bobby met Ray Allen (played ball with him before) and pegged him 192/193. KROC a former poster here also pegged Ray as "about" 6'4. My thinking is he's a bit under 6'4" and if you see the pic I posted with Rashard Lewis ray looked under 6'4. Now the difference with ray and Wade I can't see as easily but I can only say that Wade is shorter of the two. How much tho not sure. At best tho wade is a solid 6'3 from the looks

Out of bed 191-192
Before bed 189-190

If he's 191-192 out of bed, how in the world was he measured 6ft3.75 (192.4) barefoot? Even if he was measured early morning, it shouldn't put him under 190.4 before bed if we're going by your theory of 2cm height loss.

My guess
192-193 out of bed
190-191 before bed
Canson said on 20/Apr/17
@SJH: min or max? I can agree he's prob not over maybe 190cm but even 6'2.5 is possible for him at his lowest because he doesn't even look a proper 6'3 imho in most cases. Then again he does wear flats sometimes. I can say for sure he isn't over 6'3" flat tho
S.J.H said on 20/Apr/17
Wade is min 6'2.5 that would put many players down as well

@S.J.H: you may be right. One guy here says he met him and that in Jordan's Wade is maybe an inch taller. I reckon it's more than a solid inch and closer to 2" or the guy analyzing is a stronger 6'1" as Wade isn't as low as solid 6'2". I agree with KROC (6'5-6'5.25) that when he said he's lucky if he's 6'3". I don't ever use the word lucky with height in general as it is insinuating that a height is superior to another but I gather it in a better saying if he's at most 6'3" more likely a weak 6'3". Either way in his prime as 6'2" range he's still one of the best to lace them up is the best way to sum it up. I don't correlate height with Skill

@Joe: I don't see how tall he is there truthfully. A pic can make someone else taller or shorter. I have a pic with a 6'3" friend where we are standing at a bar right next to each other and he appears taller than me when in reality I'm 1.25-1.4" taller

Sorry guys but wade is over 6´3 with reeve carney here on site he looked 5'11.75-6´0 with Rob
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@S.J.H: that was what I saw somewhere on the net thin soles footwear he was measured in. I don't honk he's a flat 6'2" but maybe a weak 190cm. I believe he's near 6'3" but not near 6'4. Otis Smith the Magic GM commented and said he's 6'4" on a good day that's not something used to describe a guy at 6'2.75. My buddy who met him is 6'2 barefoot and said Wade didn't even look an inch taller and he is around the players often (was) as a scout. And yea he looks a full 4" lower than Lebron and about the same difference with Barkley as with Jordan if standing straight
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@i agree S.J.H. I think he's 190cm tops. Looks weak 6'3". Barkley had him by about 2" in the commercials.

@Canson

Honestly sometimes dwyane wade can look as low as 6'2 when he having loose posture that i could understand older post why some people keep saying he is 6'2-6'2.5 but i do believe he is 6'2.75 after i see Wade side by side comparison with 6'4.5 mj and looking as much as 2" lower than kobe bryant from team usa line up photo although some people keep posting misleading picture of kobe look an inch over wade or those funny bad angle but the truth wade is max 6'3 and lowest 6'2.5 i would rule out 189.5cm lowest since he always look 4" shorter than lebron while i still wandering wade wear his thin sole footwear for draft measurement to reach up 6'3.75

Click Here wade look 4-4.5cm lower than mj

Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: what do you think for Wade? I even asked a friend who has met him and he said the same as KROC that he's at most a full 6'3. Maybe 6'2.75 barefoot.
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: maybe that or maybe a full 6'8". I know I'm the NBA and I've confirmed now that they judiciously throw the .75 on and also they measure shoes and move into the other column for some at least but not all. Parsons is hard to pinpoint. Howard is likely a fraction above 6'9 or that's his lowest imho if he dips that low. He looked taller than Rashard Lewis who is 6'8.5 (listed at least). Meaning Howard may be 6'9.25-.5. I say that because he looks taller than Durant at times and nearly as tall as Bosh maybe 2cm lower. Parsons could even be 6'8.25 at his lowest if he measured. 6'8.75 but agree Harden is more 6'3.25. I know when he was at Arizona state he had Herb Sendeck and he didn't mess around with height the way others have inflating people so my guess is that even if harden measured early he'd still have been 6'3.5 in the morning. He looks about an inch shorter maybe 1-1.5" lower than Barkley does so I'd guess 6'3.25 for him
S.J.H said on 6/Mar/17
@Canson

Atually i think parsons may even be just 6'7.75 and that picture with slouch he even look shorter than 6'7-6'7.5 kevin love and 6'9 dwight howard always look 3-4cm taller than parsons. Lin more i see him a solid 187cm 6'1-3/4 and may easily hit 6'2-6'2.25 morning and blackie chen is probably strong 186cm so 6'1.5 and Lin would be 1/4 taller although some picture they're same height
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@S.J.H: actually looking at pics maybe 6'8 for Parsons and I can see how Lin can look sub 6'2" he does in the pic there and he does with Kobe at times now I'm confused lol. Good observations tho!!!
Canson said on 2/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I agree with some of what you said. But Howard is very surely at least flat 6'9" barefoot. Maybe he got morning before but I can believe he is now at his low. He edges Durant sometimes and sometimes they're the same. But I agree on Wall because my 6'3" friend met him and said he was 1-1.5" taller. But I believe Lin is 6'2 bare minimum maybe 6'2.5. Rob may have underlosted him a tad. Ernie Johnson says he is 6'1" but I can agree maybe 6'0 but he'd be a strong 6'0 to weak 6'1" more likely. Parsons I would say is 6'8" range maybe not as high as 6'8.75 but 6'8-6'8.5 fits he's at least strong 6'8 he's around 1" shorter than Howard. Maybe less. Howard however looks 6'9 flat minimum next to Harden. I'd give harden more a strong 6'3 (6'3.25 or 6'3.5), than 6'4 (that's def a morning measurement possibly a bust a gut, hair, or rounded up from 6'3 7/8). Yao I believe you on and I would say he loses a lot throughout the day. I'd have prob said he's 7'4" range but with his large forehead tough to tell.

@Anon: I agree that's arguable as well. All I can say is he isn't 192 at his lowest for sure especially not next to Chad Ochocinco or Ray Allen. Allen is only 192/193 barefoot next to rashard Lewis and from a poster below bobby3342 who is a strong 6'4" himself and that edged him in height

@Bobby: your assessment for Allen looks right to me. Rashard Lewis measured 6'8.5 and that's more than 3.5-4" difference. Looks more like 4.5-5". Putting Ray "near 6'4" 6'3.75 more likely. Lewis is clearly shorter than Dwight Howard in pics who is 6'9 so I agree
