How tall is Isiah Thomas

Isiah Thomas Height

6ft 0 (182.9 cm)

American former basketball player, who was a Point Guard for the Detroit Pistons.

Everybody had big point guards, and it was very controversial to draft me at 6’1…you know, I lied about being 6’1″, everybody got that extra inch.

Thomas looks right under Jordan’s nose in the photo below which would be a 6 inch deficit. I’d say Isaiah is 5-11 Flat foot and Jordan is 6-5 flat foot. In shoes 6 foot and 6-6 respectively.

What's your opinion on the legend, John Stockton? Here he is with Isiah: Click Here
I'd say he looks around 6'0, if that is Isiah's height.

They seem within a fraction. 6ft 1 in shoes for John maybe

The other guy makes him look shorter!

Maybe there’s a reason why Rob runs this site and not others

@Junior: looking at more pics (5’11.75) is possible. I saw pics with Jordan and it could look 4.5-5” in some then the full 5” in others. Of course with Rodman and Dumars, Zeek has a slight head tilt

Bull$hit(ters) aside... I agree about the pics, Rob, but do you honestly believe that Will was something like 1.5 inches taller than him? Even from seeing them here (which is probably the best comparison you can get of them) Click Here , I do struggle to see Will much taller (if at all), let alone by 1.5 inches!

There was always a tilt favouring Thomas side in that clip, the doorway was a giveaway, although accounting for it, I think I can see why many think he doesn't look over 6ft 1 with him.

@ Rob - Who is the other guy and how tall is he?
Editor Rob
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who claimed at his peak to be near 7ft 2
Canson said on 20/Feb/20
@Junior: I think maybe 1.5” to be honest. Problem is that clip was not great. It just shows Smith is physically taller but not by how much. It could look like it’s a few inches but Will is closer to the camera

I think Will Smith could be at most 3cm topped over Isiah.

@jtm Several others too. For example, Kurt Rambis was underlisted like Walton. Still today he holds a solid 6'8.25"– 6'8.5" height. Kevin Gamble was underlisted too. Other like Chambers, McHale and Parish were only about 1/4 inch shorter (give or take) than their listings.
Canson said on 18/Feb/20
@JTM: I think Rob has guys like Derrick Rose and Lebron and Carmelo and Anthony Davis listed appropriately too. You could argue that all look maybe within 1/4” of their listings. Ditto for Kobe and Magic
Jtm said on 18/Feb/20
seems like the only nba players that were their listed height or close to it are bill Walton, bill Russell, kevin garnett, larry bird, kareem, and wilt.

I believe he's really 5'11.75"

@Rob: Will Smith is likely taller than he is if everything were equal for both guys. He Prob is 6’1 judging by the views in the video from :20-:30 where Will looks physically taller where Isiah is likely 5’11.5 range afternoon height maybe rounded to 6’0”. Joe Dumars his backcourt teammate with the Pistons was 2” taller and he himself was only about 6’1” and change barefoot. Isiah is clearly 2” shorter than Dumars and around 7” shorter than Dennis Rodman when he played for the Pistons back in the day. It was customary for players to be listed 1.5” or so taller even in those days hence why Magic was maybe 6’7.5 listed 6’9” and Jordan/Barkley 6’4-6’5 range listed 6’6” and a guy like Clyde Drexler being 6’5 range listed 6’7”. Isiah as small as he was wouldve been listed 6’2 more than likely if he was inside of 6’0” range in the afternoon

6'0 is fine since he admit that. Never look over it.
Canson said on 15/Feb/20
I posted that quote previously lol. 6’0” is rounded up. He’s 5’11.5 more than likely.
Andrea said on 15/Feb/20
Isn't this the guy who often got mentioned to prove that Will Smith is noticeably shorter than his listing?
His apparent honesty certainly doesn't do Will any good: Click Here Click Here Click Here

The camera always helped Isiah, but he's now off Will's christmas card list with his not 6ft 1 admission.

Isn't that really quite small for a basketball player - just 6ft? I thought they were around 6 and-a-half feet plus! Mind you, having said that, girls in English schools play netball, and that involves throwing a ball through the same sort of goal post, and in my schooldays, most of us were lucky if we were 5ft when we started, yet we managed it! 😉

Isiah gets 6ft.
