Giannis Antetokounmpo's Height
6ft 10 ¾ (210.2 cm)
Greek professional basketball player who has played for the Milwaukee Bucks. In late 2013 he said "I am now 6-10 and one quarter"
, in 2015 claimed to be "Six Eleven"
and in 2016 "I'm 6-foot-11 and a half, so 7-foot. Almost 7-foot, 7-foot with shoes, 7-2 with high heels on. I'm joking."

Good add. I looked at him a while back. He was supposedly measured 6'8.5" when drafted. "When we first drafted Giannis, we measured him at 6-foot-8½," Bucks GM John Hammond says. Click Here
Was the 6'10.25" claim meant to be with or without shoes? I ask because he was supposedly measured 6'9.5" the following year: "Measured at 6 feet, 9 1/2 inches without shoes on Thursday, Antetokounmpo is going to have to add strength in order to continue to improve." Click Here
I was going to post that photo with 6'11.25" Kevin Garnett, but Walking Tall beat me to it. I see 4-5 cm between them so 6'9.5" without shoes could be right on the money for Giannis. Actually, Garnett himself can look only 6'10.5" with 7'0.25" Shaq and 6'11.25" Brook Lopez so Garnett may not be above 6'11" flat and while I wouldn't go below 6'9.5" for Giannis, that's still my guess until I see some evidence he grew past it. I do think Giannis is taller than Durant, though.

@Christian 6'5 3/8"
I know, but if it were me, I'd list them by ethnicity, not by nationality. The last thing you wanna do is list someone English and have them be the wrong ethnicity for it, that just confuses people. I mean, it confuses me, I do a double take each time. Or do it more, "Chinese born English actor of so and so". So, you list both ethnicity and nationality. Or like, Chinese American, something like that.

@Myself: Yeah just very tall
@Viper: I'd give him 6'10.25, Robs 6'10.75 is pushing it but it is still possible, he almost has an inch on 6'9.5 Kevin Durant, some would say that he does and it is in the realm of possibility.
@Walkingtall: Yeah I agree, but the same could be said for the picture above, he has 6 inches on 6'4.75 Kobe Bryant, if we put him at say 6'9.5-75, that just doesn't add up when he is with Kobe Bryant, a person with a 5 inch difference should barely be able to see over the person if not at eye level with the persons top of his head.
Taking all things in consideration, I'd give Giannis 6'10 or 6'10.25.

Rob lists celebs based on nationality or citizenship and not ethnicity or race.

This is too much.
No taller than a flat 6-10

He isn't actually Greek ethnically though, but I suppose he's got Greek citizenship. Also, his last name looks to have Egyptian influence. As for his height, yeah, I've seen videos of him and thought he looked around 6'11.

@Rob: I’m thinking 6’10” but not 6’11”
6ft 11.5 claim is really pushing it, but sometimes with hairstyles, a stadiometer might not totally flatten hair out, and you could get a cm boost by not tapping it down.
Ellis said on 15/Mar/19
@Rob: Yeah 6'11.5 is pushing it, but you have him right, from the pictures I've seen in recent times he is definitely taller than Kevin Durant, I'd give him and inch more. I personally am leaning more towards 6'10.5, very tall guy indeed.

Overlisted,below is a great picture with 6'11.25 Kevin Garnett with visible footwear and perfect camera angle:
I see almost two inches between them.

Giannis head closer to camera with Kobe making him look like he could be 6'11. 6'10.5-75" is legit.

Thanks Rob! Yeah this guy is a tricky one, in some pictures he can look that tall and in others he can look shorter. He is definitely taller than his 6'9 measured brother Kostas, and Kristaps Porzingis is lucky if he has 3 inches on him from the pictures I've seen. Do you think that he should be listed as a 7 footer in the NBA, I mean look at Jimmy Butler getting the 6'8 listing and typically most 7 footers are 6'10 guys or maybe 6'11 guys in that range I'd suppose.
He did seem to grow from the 6ft 8.5 when he was like 18...but what did he end up as?
6ft 11.5...I just don't think barefoot he's that much.
