How tall is Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler's Height

6ft 5 ¾ (197.5 cm)

American basketball player, who has played as a Guard for The Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat. In the Chicago Tribune he said “First of all, I’m 6-7 ¾ — don’t ever forget that. I mean, however tall [Thomas] is, he’s been that height for a long time now, so he’s mastered it ... 5-8, 6-8, whatever he is, the guy knows how to put the ball in the basket. You’ve got to guard whoever, whether they’re 5-8 or 6-8. Or 6-7 ¾.”
He did measure that height, earlier in the day at the combine in sneakers. Without footwear though, he came in around 6ft 6.

@Joe; I agree with you on Butler. That’s a Best case for him imho. He looks slightly less than Kawhi Leonard. Leonard looks 6’5.5-6’5.75 range. Leonard can even pull off 6’6” or very near it at times like next to 6’4.75 Kobe Bryant. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s 6’5.75 at a low

maybe he is your height 6'4.25.
Canson said on 24/Oct/19
@Joe: Winslow May only be 6’4” flat. He was 6’4.5 morning height. They just moved him down 1” probably to keep it from being too sketchy. Best case maybe what you said or he’s my height 6’4.25

james johnson was measured 6'7 barefoot and 7'0.75 in shoes only looks 6'6.25 with justise winslow measured at 6'4.5 and Jimmy butler only looks 6'5.25

Canson said on 11/Oct/19
@Onabill: I agree. I would lean toward 6’5-6’5.25 for him maybe the latter and Kawhi weak 6’6” 6’5.5-.75 range
Canson said on 9/Oct/19
@Viper: maybe not one inch actually. Some would get rounded up if early morning and they got maybe 1/4” boost. So a guy like you if they brought you in when you just start out of bed within an hour may get 6’3.5 and get a boost to 3/4”. Then you would get 6’4”. But then again you may end up like Lebron. I’m not sure if Lebron dips much under 6’7” but maybe he does if that was early. It’s also said that with a lot of muscle in the back that height loss is reduced through the day so maybe he retains a good 6’7” or 6’6 7/8. Butler’s NBA listing is still crap. He isn’t more than maybe Christian’s height if that. He really doesn’t look as tall as Kawhi Leonard and if he’s taller than Derozan it means the latter may just be 6’4 7/8 or something like that. If anything Leonard may get the 6’6” listing which he should get being he probably isn’t much under 197cm at a low

Can’t See 6 ft 5 3/4 for Butler more around 6 ft 5 1/4 - 6 ft 5 1/2 Range, standing next to Kawhi he looks a good 1/2 Inch shorter, it will be interesting what he measures in at
Canson said on 9/Oct/19
@Viper: Haslem should get 6’7” and Butler max 6’6”.
viper said on 8/Oct/19
I was thinking all players will only be inflated by 1 inch now.

But with Butler it's still a 2 inch inflation

NBA isn't being serious
viper said on 8/Oct/19
Butler is not 6-7 and Haslem is not 6-8.

I didn't realize Butler was listed at an insane 6-8

The NBA isn't taking this seriously
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Oct/19
Click Here I'm kind of buying it. Lol. Butler had alot of resemblance to MJ. If Butler shave his head i would have see a younger version of MJ.
Canson said on 8/Oct/19
They also list Justice Winslow 6’6”??? And Tyler Herro was 6’4” barefoot before now he’s 6’5?? Winslow is 6’4” range barefoot so 6’5” I could see early morning if rounded up. Also same for Jaylen Brown. 6’6”? I could see 6’5” for him
Canson said on 8/Oct/19
@Viper @Christian @Editor Rob @Shane Gray:

Something fishy is going on with several teams. The listing below does not match what the players actually measured. Said Haslem would be 6’6” while Butler 6’6”. Then list below shows 6’8 and 6’7” respectively. Haslem measured 6’6.75 so I could see 6’7”. But maybe it was an afternoon? Not sure. If it wasn’t it’s a red flag. If morning then he would have had to retain height very well to get 6’7.5 or .75”. And I could believe a 6’6” listing for Butler if a morning measurement since he may be 6’5.5 or .75 but 6’7” is hard to believe. His thick hair maybe? Lol. And He isn’t over 6’6” out of bed. Tobias Harris was clearly taller than him by apparently a couple inches and he was 6’7.5”. Butler really doesn’t look taller than Draymond Green. Maybe the Warriors were more honest than other teams or maybe Green really wasn’t as tall as people thought. I actually have said all along that he’s not 6’5.5 but just a solid 6’5 or 196cm at a low max. Maybe he’s only 195 if that’s the case. But The article below is interesting. I also noticed the Celtics did the same. One had Gordon Hayward at 6’7” then one 6’8” then Kemba Walker one said he was now listed 5’11” then one 6’0”. I wonder if they re-measured if someone wasn’t happy or if they truly fudged the numbers. It is also puzzling that guys who were listed 6’8” or 6’9” magically grew from 7-8 years ago when judging pics they didn’t grow. Taj Gibson is clearly shorter than Joakim Noah and he’s now 6’10”? Lol. Granted Noah is prob afternoon measurement but a 24 year old Gibson when he entered the league was 6’8.5 when drafted in 09 (morning). Maybe he’s 6’9” morning but I can’t see 6’9.5 or 6’10”. Then too many other guys remained their same listed heights on several teams instead of being reduced. Meaning guys who measured 6’5.25 listed 6’7” remained that height instead of going to 6’5” or 6’6”.

I’m willing to bet he’s listed 6’5 or may get a morning 6’5.5 or .75 to get 6’6”.

@Canson

That is a possibility, as well. The measurement could've been an error! Butler barely looked any different to Michael Carter Williams, really.


@Junior

I think Jimmy Butler would be shorter than Bo Burnham. Butler didn't looked any different to MCW, while Bo--while slouching and leaning--looked to visibly edge out MCW.

One thing I will say is that he’s the shortest 6’7 3/4” in shoes that I’ve ever seen
Starlo3 said on 20/Aug/19
Could you update his status as now playing for the Miami HEAT? Thanks!
And lets go HEAT!! Gonna be a fun season!
Long time NBA fan. I know pretty much everyone's height in the league, more or less. I'm pretty good at comparing guys at this point. Honestly though, I always thought Butler was 6'7 in shoes while watching him play. Never really towers over other wings.

6'5 is impossible. 6'5.25" a chance for this low. Jimmy look struggle on 6'5 1/2 near Metta.
Canson said on 27/Jul/19
@Dream: if we figure morning height 6’6” around an hour after waking maybe 6’5 5/8 is a best case. But really the highest I could see is 6’5.5”. Butler isn’t as tall as Kawhi. That’s around half inch difference and at times it could look 2cm. I hate to say it but I would not be at all surprised if Butler’s measurement was an error and he could dip under 6’5” at a low. look at him with Scottie Pippen. Pippen is at most a solid 6’7” but honestly I would go toward the weak 6’7”. Brad who is not always credible as a source, met him and said he had winter boots and edged Pippen out. A 6’6” guy shouldn’t edge a 6’7” guy out noticeably even in that case. If he did and that’s the case then he’s not. But I’ve seen others on YouTube when he dunked on Ewing say Pippen is 6’7 range in shoes. I think he’s 6’7.5-6’8 with shoes and 6’6.5/6’7 barefoot. Tmac could look taller at times or just as tall and Pip wasn’t quite as tall as Magic either or Charles Oakley who was no more than 6’7” (it even said he measured 6’6 range when he was drafted).
Canson said on 15/Jul/19
@Dream: Bo strikes me as taller. I have Jimmy at 6’5” honestly. 6’5.25 possible but also See him with Ben Simmons or JJ reddick.
Dream said on 14/Jul/19
@Canson

He really doesn’t look more than 6’5”. 6’5.25” would be a He doesn’t look any taller than Bo Burnham, honestly.
Canson said on 20/Jun/19
@Dream: he doesn’t look more than 6’5 imo. Kawhi Leonard looks taller and Kawhi was a morning 6’6 but he looks more 6’5.5 than butler does. With Carmelo he looks shorter than his listing. Melo is clearly taller than Butler Or Leonard
Dream said on 21/May/19
Rob, maybe 6’5 5/8” or 6’5.5” for Butler?

Bo looks taller in comparison. I’m also counting Bo’s slouch and Jimmy having thicker hair.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/May/19
Strange that NBA official height given to Jimmy is 6'8. He don't even look 6'7 with shoes. Maybe shoes on with that hair he touch 6'8.
Canson said on 6/May/19
@Viper: in game Kawhi Leonard is taller than Butler too. I can buy Kawhi being 6’5.5 but Butler looks 6’5”
Canson said on 22/Apr/19
@Viper: there are a bunch of myths out their about players being taller than listed. Another example is Desmond Mason. He really did only measure 6’5” barefoot but was listed 6’5. The 6’6” was his shoe height yet people claim he was underlisted in the NBA on some of these forums since he didn’t use his shoe height. The same way they say it about Kevin Garnett and Kevin Durant
Canson said on 22/Apr/19
@Viper: that wouldn’t surprise me at all. He’s noticeably shorter than odom and other players that measure 6’8” and 6’9. Wally Sczerbiak said that Brand was only 6’6” at the combine. Brand does not look that tall with Butler either. Maybe 6’6.5 is possible but 6’7” seems high with MWP who admitted to 6’5.5 (if that’s his low)
Canson said on 22/Apr/19
@Dream: rob lists him 6’5.75 but that’s too high. To be honest he doesn’t look just half inch off his pre draft like some players would. To get a 1.75” boost likely means the socks were loaded. Butler really looks a strong 6’5 at best at a low. He doesn’t even look quite as tall as Kawhi Leonard who also measured 6’6” flat but he at least looks something like what Christian would measure perhaps a fraction taller
Jackson said on 22/Apr/19
I can’t belive he’s listed at 6’8” I have always noticed Lebron was visibly taller than Butler when they play each other.
Dream said on 21/Apr/19
@Canson and @viper

Actually, yeah. With MCW, Bo Burnham really does look taller than Jimmy Butler. That’s also taking Bo’s slouching in consideration. Jimmy is not 6’5 7/8” for sure.
viper said on 20/Apr/19
Yep, and there's no way Duncan measured an inch taller than his listed height
viper said on 20/Apr/19
6-6 for Brand would surprise me.

Figured he was 6-7 at least
Canson said on 20/Apr/19
@Viper: 6’5” flat next to Simmons or Embiid. Maybe 6’5.5 with Rose. Elton Brand is not really 6’8” either. Lamar Odom dwarfed him and he’s only around 6’9” himself
Canson said on 20/Apr/19
Butler with 6’10” measured (morning) at the combine Justin patton

Click Here

Maybe it’s camera angle but a 6’9-6’10 guy (6’10 in the morning) is not going to make a guy who is close to 6’6” look that short. Even if Patton were really 6’10” at a low, he still wouldn’t look that low. Butler isn’t much over 6’5”. He never looks much over 6’5” on the court either

Ron Artest (Mets World Peace) has admitted to being 6’5 1/2 which is why Rob lists him at that (I actually found the interview and posted it for Rob which is why he gave him a page). Celebheights is based on your low for the day and next to Kobe MWP May only be 6’5.25 but measured 6’5.5 earlier in the day. He looks about half inch taller. If Metta has his head straight, Brand would not have him by 2.5 let alone 2.75”. They actually would be pretty close. Brand would probably have about an inch. Wally Sczerbiak was the one who claimed Brand was only around 6’6” at the combine

Canson said on 20/Apr/19
@Dream and Viper: he doesn’t have anymore than 4” on Derrick Rose. To be honest it may be 3.75 at times. My guess is that he is similar to Bo Burnham or Christian 6’5.25 at a low.

@Miko: I don’t believe Brand is 6’8” barefoot. Players said at the combine the year he was drafted that he was really only 6’6”. He looks between 6’6-6’7 on the court. But It’s the same as Kyler Murray or Shawne Merriman measuring “allegedly” what they wrote down on paper. Brand was also the first pick in the draft so it’s believable
Dream said on 17/Apr/19
Might not be any taller than Bo Burnham.
viper said on 15/Apr/19
He really does look just 6-5.

Maybe he's as high as 6-5.5. No way above that
Canson said on 14/Apr/19
@Rob: he doesn’t look much over 6’5 with Milsap and Carmelo or with Pippen. Maybe not flat but 6’5.25 or .5. 6’5.75 is obviously way too high

milko said on 14/Apr/19
Elton Brand was measured 6,8
Canson said on 14/Apr/19
@Editor Rob: looking at this picture below, the listing doesn’t add up. Carmelo Anthony and Paul Milsap both messured 6’6.25 at the pre draft and look the same height whereas Butler looks an inch shorter. Butler also looked close to 2” shorter than Scottie Pippen. Likelier that Melo and Milsap measured in the afternoon as Milsap was a 2008 measurement whereas Butler’s came after they began in the morning in 2009. I doubt Butler is any taller than Christian. Minimum probably a solid 6’5 max 6’5 3/8-1/2 but 6’5.25 looks the best listing as he looks more of a 6’5” guy than 6’6” on the court next to a 6’6” guy like Tobias Harris and next to Joel Embiid and ben Simmons

Editor Rob
I can't see Jimmy as low as say 6ft 5, but it's not exactly impossible he is between 6ft 5 and 5.75 range.
Canson said on 30/Mar/19
Butler with Elton Brand. Brand was said to only be 6’6” when drafted although 6’6-6’7 may be better
Canson said on 30/Mar/19
He doesn’t look proportionately like a guy who’s close to 6’6” in pictures. Looks 6’5 at best

Click Here
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Rob: his pre draft measurement in shoes is where the 6’7 3/4 came from. That’s a morning measurement and is likely inflated if he only measures 6’6”. Either way morning 6’6” would net a best case 6’5.5 barefoot. He really can look what you said though 6’5-6’5.5. He looked at least 1.5” shorter than Scottie Pippen and looks 196-196.5 normally
Canson said on 22/Mar/19
@Rob: that claim was his in shoes at the combine. Likelier that he is 6’5.5 tops and near 6’7 in shoes. I really see 6’5 or 6’5.25 near Pippen or Ben Simmons
Canson said on 22/Mar/19
@Rob: this is too high for him next to Pippen. That’s more than just 3cm difference. Given the fact the 6’6” is his combine listing (assuming he was even a full 6’6 or 6’5 7/8 and not something like 6’5.75 then), he probably should get a 6’5.5 listing to start
Editor Rob
This guy's posture can make him lok 6ft 5-5.5 at times, but I feel he's giving a 2 inch boost to his claim.
Canson said on 22/Mar/19
@Junior: I actually get a 6’5” impression more than 6’5.5 or 6’6. Look at him with Simmons or Tobias Harris and even Kawhi Leonard is slightly taller than him. Plus Scottie pippen below

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Mar/19
I wouldn't go under 6'5.5".
Canson said on 20/Mar/19
6’5.25 is my guess. I watched a Sixers game and after Butler hit a shot, he walked right past 6’6” Tobias Harris (6’6.5 pre draft) and looked 1/2-1” shorter. I honestly believe that Butler is at best 6’5.5 but more often I would say 6’5.25 is how he looks. Next to Embiid and Simmons, he doesn’t look over 6’5”. 6’5.5 is possible if he “supposedly” measured right at 6’6” but 6’5.25 is equally. He’s definitely not 6’5.75 going of the site’s standards or else we would see less difference between he and his teammates.
Ellis said on 18/Mar/19
@Canson: Agreed
Canson said on 15/Mar/19
@Ellis: to be honest he could look that short at times. I would say nothing less than 6’5 however. Probably more like 6’5-6’5.5
Ellis said on 14/Mar/19
If Neymar is listed at 5'8, let me look at this picture, if Jimmy stood as straight as he could I would assume Neymar maintaining his posture would come up to Butlers stubble(the facial hair a bit below his lip). Assuming his head is 9.5 inches, the lower part of his stubble is about 1 inch from his chin, this height difference looks to be around 8.5 inches. I got Jimmy Butler in this picture looking 6'4.5 to 6'5, idk it could just be a bad picture.
Ellis said on 13/Mar/19
Rob, how about adding Giannis?, I think he would be a great addition considering he is the leading MVP candidate.
Canson said on 13/Mar/19
He doesn’t look anything over 6’5 or 6’5.25 to be honest. See him with 6’6.5 Morning measured Tobias Harris and he’s shorter clearly. Also 6’8” range Ben simmons. Also see him with 6’1.5 Derrick Rose. Not unfathomable that a guy listed 6’6 on the combine early morning doesn’t measure much over 6’5 especially if rounded. It was a solid 6’6 listing as well

@Junior: that’s if it was even a solid 6’6”. He looks smaller than that. Looks closer to 6’5”
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Mar/19
Here we have a rather handsome young scamp, and that he's very tall is just by-the-way! He's certainly in the right job for someone of that height!

There's a kind of modesty about him, which I thoroughly like; it's as though he has no idea how attractive he is because he is totally devoted to his career and the welfare of his mates and fans.

That was my first impression of him, anyway - and not a bad one, if I do say so myself!

I will go along with 6ft5.75. When a fellow gets to THAT sort of height, and I meet him, I feel dizzy looking up before I have even arrived at any conclusions as to his highhhhhhht! I had a hairdresser of 6ft7, and had to sit down before I could properly converse with him or I'd have keeled over! He was a lovely chap with long, brown, rock star-like hair and very attentive and good at his job. I went to see him the night I saw 'Swan Lake' at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley. It was a Birthday treat from my boyfriend, but not a patch on 'Black Swan', which is what had re-aroused my interest in ballet, which I had to give up at 11 'to concentrate on my homework'. Pah! If only I'd had a mind of my own back then! Youngsters - if you have a dream - chase after it like Jimmy here and so many celebrities on this site. Don't let anyone do your thinking for you! 😁👍

He doesn't look over 5ft 8 there, at most that mark...though of course has measured over 173 earlier in the day busting a gut.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Mar/19
6'5 3/4 without shoes was fine. He could be as low as 6'5 1/2 if he measure 6'6 early morning.
Ellis said on 11/Mar/19
Sounds right, He got a 6'6 measurement but that was probably earlier in the morning, he looks like a 6'7 guy in shoes not 6'8.
