How tall is Jason Collins

Jason Collins Height

6ft 10 (208.3 cm)

American former basketball player, who played as a Center for teams like New Jersey Nets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics.
In sneakers, with my orthotics, ankle braces and two pairs of socks, I'm a good 6-11½...It's almost a joke.
Media day, my junior year, I told our sports information guy that I wanted to be 7 feet and it's been 7 feet ever since.

@Rob is he claiming to be 6ft 10.5 indirectly? If so that's quite honest as many men in his position would claim to be 7 foot.
Editor Rob
It's a funny quote, but not quite certain how much he thinks the sneakers/orthotics give him!

@Junior: I have Bosh at 6’10” flat. Malone peak was probably 6’8” flat at best. Maybe just 6’7.75. KD May be that height but no taller. I don’t rule out 6’9.5 just as I don’t rule out 6’9.25

Canson, Malone is at least 6'7 1/2 now if he shrunk from 6'8. To me i atually don't think Chris Bosh is under 6'10 1/4, i think he don't bother that 1/4 just go with 6'10 but most of the time can be spotted he look 209cm than flat 6'10. Kevin Durant the more i see him i believe current listing might be his low, Bosh could have camera advantage to look over 1" on KD in picture.

@Junior: Malone May have shrunken but he did look 6’8 next to magic and everyone else when he played. Bosh looks 6’10 legit

@Canson One fact is Bosh 6'10 would means mail man 6'7-6'7 1/2 and Kevin Durant not a chance over 6'9 but more chance lower.

@Junior: I can’t see the two of them next to each other but 1/4” is next to impossible to tell. My guess is Bosh is 6’10” flat at a low and 6’10.5 morning height. Keep in mind he mentioned orthotics and tape etc as well

@Junior: something to look at is in “tape and orthotics” he’s 6’11.5. If he goes out of his way and may or may not even make 6’11.5, chances are he’s probably not even 6’10” barefoot especially if the NBA measures earlier in the day.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Jul/18
@Canson There is only 1/4 max between Chris Bosh and Jason Collins on the court. Bosh call himself 6'10 several times but some source claim that he had grow out to 6'10 1/2 inch and we know he drafted at 6'10.25" without shoes. So how can Collins be 6'9? He has to be just a weak 6'10. 6'9.75" is min.

1.5"with all the stuff mentioned above is fair.6'8 is laughable.You can make a case for 6'9.5" but nothing under this.6'10 is honest compared to many BB players.
Btw it took him a lot of courage to admit he was gay,I understand it's difficult to manage fan bullying loss of sponsorships and so on.I think he fully deserved to be listed on this site.
Canson said on 8/Jul/18
@Junior: Collins is in basketball sneakers in both pics while the other guy has no shoes on. Collins is also favored in the first pic as he’s further forward. I believe 6’9 range but not as high as 6’9.75
Canson said on 8/Jul/18
@Rob: I don’t think 6’8” range either but 6’9 I would believe over 6’10”. Maybe 6’9.25
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Jul/18
@Canson Jason Collins is not under a min 6'9.75" and look 6'11 with legit 6'2.5" Geoff Stults.
Canson said on 30/Jun/18
@Rob: They spoke of him being closer to 6’8”. I doubt that’s true but but 6’9” range is probably a better listing than 6’10”. A 6’10” guy wouldn’t be speaking of 6’11 1/2” in orthotics and tape and shoes. He’s likely 6’9” maybe 6’9.5

Here you see Alonzo Mourning who is supposedly 6’8” range (not 6’9.5 that’s a shoe height) and Rodney Rodgers who was supposedly measured 6’7.5 (likely just a flat 6’7) since he was listed in the pros and that’s how he looked with Paul Pierce. I wouldn’t peg Collins that high personally

Always a chance just under 6ft 10 but I am not sure as low as 6ft 8-9

👍 to Jason Collins for being open about his height and his sexuality, for that he can have 6'10" and a welcome aboard celebheights!

@ Rob - I couldn't agree more! 😊👍
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Jun/18
This guy is incredibly tall, and if I met him, I wouldn't have the faintest idea how tall exactly because I would get neck strain just looking at him!

He can have 6ft10.
Editor Rob
Although he is not what folk would call a big basketaball star, I think given he admitted to being under 7ft and also since he came out as gay whilst still playing, he is an interesting name.

Perhaps Geoff Stults was really a solid 6'2 1/2 not like people guess him up at 6'3. Looking 6'2 5/8 max not 190ish. Jason Collins being an honest 6'10 at worse 6'9 7/8 (208).
