How tall is Isaiah Thomas

Isaiah Thomas Height

5ft 8.5in (174 cm)

American basketball player, who has played for for the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers.
In 2012 he said in a post match interview "I'm Five Eight", a claim which he also said in a Players Tribune article: "I’m a little guy — I’m only five-foot-eight — so unless you’re a huge basketball fan, you’re probably not going to recognize me around town".
At the Nba combine he was reported to have measured 5ft 8 ¾ w/o shoes and in a 2017 InsideHoops article mentioned "At the end of the day, it always comes back to my height. If I was 6'1", they would probably call me the best player in the world, and I'm not 6'1"....Yeah, I'm 5'9", man"

@Johnson: that's speculation. The other answer could be that the angle isn't very good. I have to believe Thomas if he said he's only 5'8" barefoot. Maybe he's a hair over but doubt he's close to 5'9"

W/o shoes 5'8.75

Rob, could you add nba player Kawhi Leonard who's measured at 6'6,but looks similar to Anthony Joshua
he's pretty worthly player to add
Borats Chicken said on 16/Jun/17
Rob, you could scottie pippen now? people could guess and stuff height about this deep voice baller
Johnson said on 14/Jun/17
I guess Thomas have 3 cm basketball sneakers and Griezmann typical casual 2 cm sneakers
Canson said on 13/Jun/17
Prob 5'8 1/4"

Do you think he could have put lifts in his socks for his combine measurement?
Editor Rob: that seems unlikely, though you never know...many people wear lifts inside their socks, heck that's one of the tricks the Grow Smaller Guru used on youtube 😂
Im 171CM said on 24/May/17
Looks about 69 inches to me nba over exaggerates height at times to...
DirectorKrennic said on 23/May/17
172 cm.
JKE 168 cm said on 22/May/17
Rob I would list Isaiah at 5 ft 9 if I were you, because he might rage like he did in this video lol.

Editor Rob: he was bobbing and weaving a lot in that video, usually I see that from guys who have just put new lifts in their sneakers and are trying to get used to them!

might have to rethink this guy's listing 😡😡😡

@1:11s "I'm 5'8. I gotta bring something."
Canson said on 2/May/17
Ronald agreed. That's if the measurement actually was 5'8.75 and not like lower. They don't always give what you actually measure they throw .75 on some judiciously that I know as a fact
ronald said on 1/May/17
considering those measurements are in the morning he probably dips to 5-8 1/2 during the day but yeah a bit over 5-8 flat
168cmfunk said on 20/Apr/17
So he is a bit taller than you Rob? When i watch him in nba i think he is only 5'7.5 like May Weather.
Canson said on 9/Apr/17
Probably 5'8 at his lowest or maybe less. They judiciously throw a fraction on sometimes
Cameron said on 8/Apr/17
Well he admitted he's not really 5'9". I'm guessing that's his height in basketball shoes. A lot of sports measurements are taken with shoes anyway.
truth said on 8/Apr/17
spot-on listing. my guess, wakes up 5'9, got measured in the morning 5'8 3/4, goes to bed 5'8.5 or a hair under.
Puma said on 17/Mar/17
Really perfect skill, the legend for me.
Thanks Rob, for Thomas.
My opinion, Thomas is 173-174.
Too me, too you.
Editor Rob: a Chuckle Brothers fan then?
Canson said on 16/Mar/17
@Johnson: they didn't update his height to 5'8.8. They did that to everyone's height. Everyone that was .25 was rounded to .3 or .76 to .8. Look at Lebron James (6'7.25) or Caron butler (6'5.25)
Johnson said on 16/Mar/17
Ok, the web is just a new design and they round up de decimals to just 1 figure (5'8.75 = 5'8.8 now)
Johnson said on 16/Mar/17
Hey guys!! Draftexpress have updated the site with more measures of players!! Isaiah Thomas is exactly 5'8.8 without shoes as it says.

There are other heights. 5'9.5 with shoes on 2009 and in 2011 and 5'11 with shoes
Johnson said on 11/Mar/17
The funny thing with Thomas is one day he says I am 5'8 I am not 5'8.75... and the other day says yes I'm 5'9 man...

Like Ibrahimovic said I am 192 and years later says I am not 192 but 197
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
He could be 5'8 at his lowest or even 5'8.25 or 5'7.75. They do throw around the .75 very judiciously in the pros on a lot of guys especially if they are deemed to small for a position or the league and that I know from a reliable source inside the league who was a scout
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
Johnson: I understand and wasn't taking a shot at you. I apologize if it came across like that. But I have seen that comment before by many (you have made it too) where if someone claims or is proclaimed less by someone else it's always show us proof. But proof is never asked for when someone claims taller it's just accepted. And if you see Charles Barkley's page there is all the proof in the world that he isn't over 6'4.5-.75 and it's just ignored. I mean quotes teammates other internet posters the whole nine. It's always that people want to make people taller and that's how it is in the real world too.
Johnson said on 2/Mar/17
@Canson If you read I said I think he was 5'8.5 as Rob list him. It is obvious people exaggerate their own height and I am really more interested on people when they claim less than their official listing
Canson said on 26/Feb/17
@Johnson: I saw it on the internet. And you are very predictable. I bet if he claimed he was really 5'10 and that his 5'8.75 was BS you wouldn't have made the statement you made. I've heard him out of his own mouth in two interviews at least and seen another source say he is 5'8. A guy who is 5'8.75 isn't gonna say he's 5'8. That's how he looks on the court as well.
S.J.H said on 26/Feb/17
I remember i saw some reliable pictures he was a little over 8" lower than kobe bryant. Look nothing over 5'8 there
Realist said on 25/Feb/17
I am between 175 and 177 cms but at 86 kilos I am a bit heavy I plan on dropping a good 8 kilos.
Mathew Robinson said on 25/Feb/17
I think he'd be about the same as Rob - a little under 5'9" in the morning and a just little over 5'8" in the evening.
Johnson said on 25/Feb/17
@Canson can you put a source where he claims the 5'8.75 is BS?
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
He admitted more than once he's 5'8". And even said the 5'8.75 is BS. I think he's 5'8" flat at his lowest
truth said on 24/Feb/17
same height as you Rob. strong 5'8, aka 5'8.25. wakes up probably 5'9 or close. got measured 5'8.75 at the combine (fairly early in the morning)

Nate was measured 5'7.75" barefoot. Would help to see the footwear though.
Marlon said on 22/Feb/17
Hey guys,

If I've been measured anywhere between 174cm in the morning and 172.5cm at night what height do I say I am?

I think Thomas is a big 5ft 8 especially compared to Floyd.
travis said on 22/Feb/17

Good listing

He looks 5'8 my coworker said he was 5'8.
VeryShortRussianDude said on 21/Feb/17
Russel Wilson would definitely be listed either 5'10.25 or 5'10.5, clearly shorter than 5'11 but does enough to look a bit taller than 5'10.
Im 171CM said on 21/Feb/17
Look a bout 68in
Johnny said on 21/Feb/17
@Rob another good addition to celebheights, despite being short he is a great player. Now I request Russell Wilson the shortest quarterback to win the Superbowl.
Ultimate said on 21/Feb/17
Cool Rob!


Yes, he was listed 5'8.75 but the NBA players are measured early in the day and inflating the chest like the hospitals
Wingspanpro said on 20/Feb/17
Minimum 5'8.75

Johnson said on 20/Feb/17
Not over 5'8.5. There was a pic back to back with Nate Robinson
