Isaiah Thomas Height
5ft 8 (172.7 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"

Maybe he should get a 5’8.25 listing being he is still listed 5’9” this year just as Derrick Rose was previously given 6’1 this year and went back up slightly to 6’2”
High Quality said on 1/Jul/20
Just 5'8?? Not even a strong 5'8?? He looks 5'9 next to Nate Robinson, who is a weak 5'8
JohnMoore-162cm said on 27/Jun/20
5ft8 1/4 to 5ft8 1/2" ..he could be a flat 5ft8 too ..But I'm sure he isn't a 5ft9 guy
said on 8/Jan/20
He’s only 5’8” barefoot. He admitted that out of his own mouth and he looks it standing next to other players. Very likely that Nate Robinson is only 5’7” being he didn’t look but max 1.5” on 5’5.5 Spud Webb. Many of The listings whether they are the pre drafts or the “official” ones for this year are off. JJ Redick measured 6’4” at the combine according to the stats but is only listed at 6’3” today. Lebron is still 6’7” not 6’8.5”. If you see Anthony Davis 6’9.75, Brandon Ingram he’s only listed 6’7” today and Bradley Beal is 6’3 and Lebron doesn’t look over 6’7” With them. Nate is slouching a tad but he’s not 2-3” taller Which his listing would suggest. That’s about 1.5” if he stood straight

He gotta be 5'8 1/2, he looks 5'9 next to Nate Robinson
Canson said on 30/Dec/19
@Rob: he’s still listed 5’9 in the NBA but I believe 5’8 like he said. Also he plays for the Washington Wizards now
Canson said on 18/Dec/19
Bron is not 6’8.5” and everyone knows that
Canson said on 17/Dec/19
@Rob: he’s still listed 5’9” in the NBA. Looks 5’8 for the most part
Alexi said on 27/Oct/19
Thats a fat L , you said Bron is 6'7 barefoot and he's 6'8.5 withoes shoes listed two weeks ago with the new NBA rule lol.
Canson said on 7/Oct/19
This one should’ve been downgraded previously. He already claimed 5’8”
said on 7/Oct/19
Yo Rob you see the NBA doing real measurements? I heard IT measured 5’8
Yeah I see 5'8
cmillz said on 26/Sep/19
He honestly looks 5’8 at best, really looks under it a lot tbh. I find it hard to believe he was ever measured 5’8 3/4 barefoot.

@Stephen Ronald Horrible bait dude
You can see why I didn't respond 🤔
Canson said on 24/May/19
@Stephen Ronald: you obviously have not met any of these basketball players or didn’t gauge them properly. Lebron is not 6’10 he’s 6’7” barefoot. Isaiah Thomas came out of his own mouth and said he’s 5’8”. If we have to choose who to believe then it’s him
Stephen Ronald said on 21/May/19
I think Isaiah is 6 foot 0. I met him at a basketball camp that I attended and he was talking to me. It was cool to meet him in person and he said I had true skills. I am 6 foot 0 as well and he was at my height, at most 0.5 inches shorter. I say 5 foot 11.5- 6 foot 0. Probably 6 ft 0.5 in the morning. Isaiah told me he was 5 foot 11 but he was measured at the camp at 6 foot 0 and I was measured at 6 foot 0.25. He said that he thought he was 5 foot 11 but in reality might be taller. My friend who is 5 foot 9 was there and he was measured at 5 foot 9.5. Isaiah was clearly 2.5 inches taller. Isaiah said he wanted to seem short and be a star player. Also, my other friend is 5 foot 11.75 and Isaiah was just a hair taller. There is no option to guess 6 ft. So going with max 5 foot 10.5. What do you think Rob?
James E said on 21/May/19
yeah he's under 5'9... I'm a true 5'9er barefoot like EXACTLY on the dot and I met him in person, he's shorter by an inch. I'll give him 5'8 but hes probably even a little shorter without shoes. I'm a little over 5'10 with regular sneakers on and he seemed almost 3 inches shorter honestly.
khaled taban said on 28/Mar/19
I can't see him more than 5'8.25"!
said on 19/Mar/19
@Rob: here’s another quote from a former teammate. He called him 5’7/5’8”. Thomas himself admitted to 5’8” so maybe that’s all he should get?
Canson said on 10/Feb/19
He’s not 5’8.75 midday. If he really was that high in the morning when he was measured he’d be almost a 174cm guy. He claimed 5’8” so he may just be 173 cm like Rob
Mark Wang said on 8/Feb/19
Give him a strong 5'8.75 at midday
said on 25/Jun/18
@Rob: my bad made a mistake
It's not a problem.
said on 24/Jun/18
@Rob: you should add this quote too wth him saying he’s 5’8”. There’s another too after a game during postgame
The quotes have been at the top of the page for a while..
Height Master said on 5/May/18
174 w/o shoes and 177 with shoes
Shaq said on 26/Mar/18
your perception of 'legit 5'9' is not what's accurate on this site. a 'legit 5'9' here is 5'9 before bed, this guy was measured 5'8.75 in the morning, not even close. he's 5'8.5 at best before bed. But knowing this might be disturbing for a lot as it could knock your 6'0 down to 5'11 or 5'10.75
Canson said on 20/Mar/18
He’s said himself he’s 5’8”. Nose area is more than just 3”
Eb said on 20/Mar/18
If you ever see him in person you’ll see he’s a legit 5’9. I’m 6’0 and he was around my nose area when I met him at the mall
jonas henriks said on 24/Feb/18
If It is 5"8.5 then KD is 6"11, this site has him as 6"9.5 I mean its rounded up morning heights, the without shoes are almost as exaggerated as the listed heights, unless is KD, Pau Gasol,AD,Embiid or Mirotic. Jokic also looks his listed 6"10. Him and Mirortic dwarfs 6"9 guys in NBA ans towers over 6"10 guys like Love. There is not so many 7 foters in NBA as they say, really its only 7"1+ guys + legit 7 fot listed Embiid and Pau Gasol. I think It is 5"7.75 or 5"8 flat. Other examples with inflated heights are Draymond, Swaggy P, Cousins, Klay,Kemba Walker. Howard.
Canson said on 5/Feb/18
@Johnson: if both guys were measured in the morning (Thomas for sure was early morning) then Felder would be more like 5’7.75 and Thomas 5’8.25.
Johnson said on 4/Feb/18
He is clearly taller than 5'8.25 measured Felder
said on 4/Feb/18
@5ft10guy: he’s also said twice that he’s 5’8”. That’s likely his barefoot height and 5’9” with shoes. The other instance was in an interview after a game. It used to be on YouTube but don’t see it now but it may be posted somewhere in this thread
5ft10guy said on 3/Feb/18
He said he was 5ft9 and swore by it.I say 5ft8.75-5ft9 legit
Canson said on 30/Oct/17
Solid 5’8 at his lowest
said on 29/Sep/17
he has several measurements with and without shoes
In this picture he poses with Kay Felder, measured at 5'8.25
Canson said on 19/Jun/17
@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"
Morningheight 181.5cm said on 17/Jun/17
W/o shoes 5'8.75
Borats Chicken said on 17/Jun/17
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"
Canson said on 13/Jun/17
@johnson: Thomas is taller
Im 171CM said on 11/Jun/17
Looks 5'9" to me..
said on 26/May/17
Griezmann and Isaiah Thomas
said on 24/May/17
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...
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.
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)
Duhon said on 22/Feb/17

with Nate Robinson back to back
Nate was measured 5'7.75" barefoot. Would help to see the footwear though.
Marlon said on 22/Feb/17
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
he not short either but avything over 6'foot he is

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
Yes, he was listed 5'8.75 but the NBA players are measured early in the day and inflating the chest like the hospitals
said on 20/Feb/17
Johnson said on 20/Feb/17
Not over 5'8.5. There was a pic back to back with Nate Robinson
