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.

Jimmy is not less than 6'5.5 by game time, but he definitely wakes up at around or over 6'6. I wonder if people realize that you lose more than 1.5 cm throughout the day, especially if you're taller (Jimmy is in the 196.5-198.5 range, making 197 a very reasonable afternoon listing). I agree; he is due for a downgrade, but the listing as is could also be fine - since it's an average of that range.

@viper He is listed at 6'7 on most sites affiliated with the NBA, which is probably his height in a pair of basketball sneakers (which are commonly between 1-1.5 inches). Granted, Li-Ning shoes don't look like they add more than an inch, but that still puts him around 6'6.5, which is being rounded up to 6'7. The way I see it, if LeBron is around 6'7.5 and listed at 6'9, then it's fair that Jimmy is listed at 6'7 when he is really 6'5.5

The rule of thumb is to subtract 1 to 1.5 inches from a player's listed height (so 6'0 Kyle Lowry for example is 5'11, 6'2 Dame is a strong 6'0, etc.)

Can the Miami Heat complete a comeback against the Nuggets? Probably not.
Canson said on 11/Jun/23
@Viper: he can look maybe 6’5.5. That’s the most he is. I’d give him tjay if I were rob as he’s shorter than Kawhi leonard and not any taller than Draymond
viper said on 7/Jun/23
It's absolute madness he's listed at 6-8 when he can look just 6-5 on the court
Canson said on 5/Jun/23
He needs reduction to 6’5.5. That’s the most he is and he can look 3.5” shorter than 6’8.75” Adebayo at times
Canson said on 31/May/23
Butler doesn’t look more than solid 6’5 range on tv in games
Canson said on 30/May/23
@Shane: I think 6’5.5” for Zion at his low is probably a decent call. We’re not too far off each other on ours. I would’ve given the chance of 6’5.75 but Ingram is only 1.5” taller and I wonder if he’s a full 6’7” at a low next to Kuzma and next to Tatum? So 6’5.5 is probably more likely
Shane Gray said on 29/May/23
@Canson sorry I didn't get your comment before now. I'd say you're right on Aaron Rodgers, etc. I do still disagree with you on Zion. I don't see him over 6'5 1/2" afternoon.
Shane Gray said on 29/May/23
@Height Analyzer if he wakes up over 6'6" its just barely. His 6'6" flat was early morning and probably was more like 6'5 7/8". His extreme low may be under 6'5 1/4".
Height Analyzer 2 said on 30/Apr/23
@Canson Yea that’s a good range to have him at. Guy is legit tall and an absolute baller. Glad he decimated the Knicks today
Canson said on 28/Apr/23
@Height Analyzer: he measured (allegedly) 6’6 when drafted but that looks like it’s almost out of bed so I agree With you. I’ve always had him at 6’5.5 or 6’5.25-.5 max.
Height Analyzer 2 said on 28/Apr/23
Hmm yea, after watching Jimmy demolish the Bucks, I think he is definitely no more than 6'5.5. I think the 6'5.75 might have been from an earlier measurement in the day, but I think his true low is just a smidge under 6'5.5, so that would be a better estimate for him. He probably wakes up over 6'6 and is definitely 6'7 with shoes on - just as his NBA height lists.
Height Analyzer 2 said on 19/Apr/23
Having been to Miami Heat games and being 6'5-6'5.25 barefoot, Jimmy Butler and I are nearly the same height. He's, at most, a quarter of an inch taller than me. No higher than 6'5.5, he needs a downgrade. The average guess is bang on!
Canson said on 9/Apr/23
I think 6’6 was near out of bed. Needs reduction to 6’5.5
Canson said on 8/Apr/23
@Editor Rob: Kawhi is listed 6’6 and he’s noticeably taller. Butler is no more than 6’5.5” and that’s a gift. Kawhi may not even be 6’6 flat at a low

Canson said on 6/Apr/23
Zion is likeliest near 6’6
Malcolm Oliver said on 28/Feb/23
They’re all listed the same but who’d be taller between Jimmy, Zion, and LaMelo?
Editor Rob
In the past I might have went with Zion, but now I'm not so sure!
Canson said on 21/Feb/23
@Shane: truth be told, he can look 6’5” at times. Butler could be the case of someone like Aaron Rodgers or Nick Foles as they both measured 6’2 and 6’5 at the combine but measured 6’1 5/8 and 6’4 5/8 at Pro Day or Senior Bowl and those were already morning measurements. It wouldn’t surprise me if Rodgers is your size or a even a hair shorter seeing him with Favre and Foles my size being he looks distinctly shorter than Carson Wentz who is likely a strong 6’5 who doesn’t dip below that mark unless extreme low territory. Wentz was 6’5.25 at the senior bowl and the combine. Wouldn’t surprise me if he didn’t measure again and they used the same number. Wentz looks a bit tall to be under 6’5 flat unless it’s maybe 6’4 7/8 although I see 6’5 flat being he looks distinctly taller than Foles and I don’t see Foles below 6’4 range but the others too short to be 6’2 or 6’5
Shane Gray said on 18/Feb/23
@Canson I also agree 6'5 1/2" afternoon is probably near a best case scenario. Could be slightly less.
Canson said on 21/Jan/23
@Editor Rob: 6’5 1/2” is a better fit. He never looks as tall as 6’6 and it’s possible the 6’6 was rounded up and that he comes down. Lot lower. He’s not as tall as Kawhi Leonard
Canson said on 16/Jan/23
@Shane: I’d like to see a better pic of butler and Adebayo. Bam is minimum maybe 6’8.5”. He measured 6’9 at Kentucky’s pro day then 6’8.75 at the draft but generally looks around 6’9 at times. I saw an Olympic pic with Durant and it could look 2 cm maybe 1” diff. Nonetheless, butler needs a downgrade to 6’5.5”. That’s the max he is. Maybe that’s a low for him maybe not

@icecold1 I agree with you but that photo is obviously completely useless.
IceCold1 said on 11/Oct/22
He is no taller than Green. 6'5 1/2 or 6'5 1/4. Although he didn't look anything more than 6'5 flat next to Dwight Howard Click Here
Canson said on 12/Sep/22
Agree with recapa!
recapa said on 24/Jul/22
i think a 6ft5 1/2 (197cm) lisitng would be perfect for jimmy buckets even tho i doubt that he is even taller than draymond.
Canson said on 20/Jul/22
Grant Williams was measured 6’5.75 before the draft. He may be a hair under that. 6’5.5 worst case. As for Butler max 6’5.5” next to Adebayo and the others. Brown looks max 6’5” most of the time but probably not under it
Nobleyute said on 20/Jul/22
Brown being edged out by 6’6 low Grant williams may be brown is dips to 6’5 at his lowest maybe. Probably not quite 6’5.75 but 6’5 1/2
Leopard said on 16/Jul/22
My favorite player Jimmy Butler measured 6'6" in the draft I think afternoon 6'5.75" is the lowest for him.
Canson said on 10/Jul/22
Jaylen brown is not 6’5.75”. He measured 6’5.25 at the combine which is probably not his afternoon height. He’s prob a solid 6’5” afternoon height
Nobleyute said on 9/Jul/22
same height as jaylen brown 6'5 3/4 a little shorter than duncan robinson 197-198cm
Kamba said on 1/Jul/22
Draymond green is 196 cm tall and he's taller than him he's 195 cm
Kamba said on 1/Jul/22
He's 6'5 and draymond green is 6'5.25
Warren said on 21/Jun/22
So actually his wingspan is 2 inches longer than his height?
Canson said on 7/Jun/22
This listing may be near lunch for him. 6’5.5 is much better and that’s probably around a normal low. Maybe 6’5 3/8”
Height Investigator said on 6/Jun/22
He needs a downgrade to 6'5.5 on the mark. Avg guess is spot on!

With sneakers, I could see him reaching or possibly clearing 6'7 in the morning though.
Canson said on 28/May/22
@Shane: I would say a shoe like that probably gives 1 3/8” but you may be right with 1.5”. I’ve never worn them. I wear a custom orthotic now but they only give me 1/8” net being i remove the original insole from the shoe before I place it in. Thus you’re taking away 1/8” and adding 1/4” for the one I have leaving you with 1/8” more.
Shane Gray@ said on 27/May/22
@Viper LeBrons or 270 react, for example, give around 1.5 inches. Add a thick orthotic and you're around 1.75
IceCold said on 13/May/22
Jimmy might be really 6'5 1/2 - 1/4 Click Here
IceCold said on 1/Apr/22
No in the world he has an inch on Jordan. If he is even taller than him
IceCold said on 31/Mar/22
Do you really think Jimmy is taller than Howard Stern peak?
Canson said on 30/Mar/22
@IceCold: I’d give him up to an inch on Jordan. Butler is tricky to guess. He can look 6’5.5 or taller at times while 6’5 at times. He is next to Bam Adebayo in some pics and looks 6’5.5 range. But next to Kawhi 6’5 or a hair over
IceCold said on 30/Mar/22
If Jordan is 6'4.5, Butler can't be anything taller than 6'5
IceCold said on 30/Mar/22
Jordan is slouching too
Canson said on 29/Mar/22
@Icecold: Butler is slouching a bit. He’s got Jordan by a bit. He could be near what Rob lists him but 6’5,75 afternoon is high. I’d say maybe 196-197 range best case and lunch maybe a straight 6’5.5”
IceCold said on 29/Mar/22
Jimmy ain't taller than Jordan even on the tip toes Click Here

Canson said on 19/Dec/21
@Viper: not to mention Warren looks a couple inches taller than Butler but not a great pic. 6’7 is a best case for Warren if that’s an afternoon measurement. Butler looks maybe 6’5.5 at times and 6’5.25 others. His measurement does not add up with Scottie Pippen. Magic Johnson looked at least an inch taller than Pippen in their pic
Canson said on 18/Dec/21
@Viper: yea warren measured 6’7 and we aren’t sure that is even his afternoon height
viper said on 17/Dec/21
How in the world did he measure 6-7 3/4 in shoes
viper said on 17/Dec/21
Warren is 6-7
Noble said on 14/Dec/21
Jimmy ain’t 6’5. He only locked around an inch shorter than 6’8 TJ Warren when they squared up two seasons ago.
Canson said on 3/Nov/21
@Editor Rob: seeing more of him this season he struggles to look that close to 6’6” next to Markieff Morris who is 6’7.75” or other teammates. Bam Adebayo has over 3” on him. 6’5.5” looks high to be honest but justifiable with the 6’6 being a morning measurement and with Kawhi Leonard being taller and listed 6’6 here and an aged Scottie Pippen being taller than him. He also doesn’t look taller than Draymond. 6’5.5” is the best verdict lol
Canson said on 22/Oct/21
@Editor Rob: yea he needs a reduction. He doesn’t look 6’6 next to an aged Scottie Pippen. Here’s pippen with Magic. Difference is exaggerated but pippen is not still 6’7 if he ever actually was a solid 6’7”. May have been though. Butler looks 6’5 next to pippen max. Doesn’t look 6’6 with Adebayo either

@Recapa: yea 197 is still too high imho.
recapa said on 8/Oct/21
@Canson,agreed.i agree but honestly even a full 197 is too high for butler at this point he is obviously not taller than kawhi,burnham,donnaruma,aj and many more weak or strong 197 guys.meh,at least he,ll measure that at lunch time.195.5-196 before bed and 197.5-198 out of bed.
Canson said on 8/Oct/21
@Editor Rob: I agree with Recapa. I think at least a reduction to 6’5.5” would be more fair being he’s also noticeably shorter than Kawhi Leonard who you still list at 6’6”
Editor Rob
It's a figure to consider for him.
Canson said on 6/Oct/21
Rob should reduce it to 6’5.5” being 6’6 was early morning. There’s even debate as to whether it or not it was a straight out of bed measurement though and he isn’t just Draymond’s height 6’5.25 as that’s what he looks. I’d say 6’5.5 is a better listing than 6’5.75 as he clearly doesn’t look 6’6” or near it. He looks 6’5 with Scottie pippen too. He’s at minimum in the same boat as Luka Doncic where his 6’6.75 was for sure at best an early morning if he even was that tall to begin with
recapa said on 6/Oct/21
about 2 inches taller than 191 listed pogba here Click Here. jimmy is 6ft5 1/4 max.
Canson said on 5/Oct/21
@Editor Rob: if not 6’5.25 that Recapa is saying, I feel 6’5.5” would be a fair trade being he only measured 6’6 early in the morning and he’s clearly shorter than Kawhi Leonard. Truthfully, I agree with Recapa that he’s Draymond’s size but if you feel it’s too low, 6’5.5 would be the next best thing
recapa said on 5/Oct/21
@Rob, here he is with 196.2 listed draymond Click Here he lookseven shorter but i,ll give jimmy the benfit of doubt and say that draymond has camera advantage and say they are the same height .my point that this listing is too much for jimmy he always looked like between a strong 6ft5 guy at best he never looked 6ft6 like what does 197-197.5 guys do .i think that a 6ft5 1/4 (196.2) would be perfect .he is probably anywhere between 195.5-196.
Editor Rob
yeah, at that moment it's Green who looks a fraction taller.

@Editor Rob: He surely does not look 6’5.75” with any of these guys. He looks maybe the same height as Draymond Green. Keep in mind Harrison Barnes is a morning 6’7” range guy and likely 6’6.5 or 6’6.75 afternoon. Butler’s 6’6 is an early morning height. 6’5.5 is even steep still

the worst that i have jimmy at is 196cm flat but for the time being 6ft5.25 .i think that he is very semilar to draymond might edge him by a hair.
Canson said on 22/Dec/20
@Recapa: if Kawhi keeps 6’6 he needs to be 6’5.5” tops. In reality he’s 6’5.25 more than likely. I’d say Herro is 6’4
recapa said on 21/Dec/20
even this listing is too much for butler he really can look as low as 6ft5 flat soemtimes.(6ft5 1/4) 196,2cm for him.btw,how tall do you all have tyler herro.he looks 6ft3.5 to me.

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 26/Oct/20
6'6 3/4 w/o shoes Udonis is probably solid 199cm low and there is solid 3cm between him and Jimmy than flat 1". Jimmy is more on strong 6'5 unlikely below 6'5 1/8-1/4 if get measure in the evening/night. Jimmy should get 1/4 downgrade would be great.
Canson said on 23/Oct/20
@Jesse Dumont: what’s more ironic is that if someone from the site saw him in person he would be a strong 6’5 range guy nothing more. He’s not even as tall as Kawhi Leonard who only measured 6’6” flat barefoot
Jesse Dumont said on 16/Sep/20
Claiming his morning height with shoes lol. Shoes that add way more than the average sneakers also. Wow. This is why the height 6'0" isn't seen as tall as it really is because it's not 6'1" or 6'2" because guys really do add 2 inches to their height usually. Not even an inch, but two inches. Of course 6'0" isn't 6'3" but it's still a very good height if you pull out the measuring tape. 5'10" isn't 6'0" lol.
Canson said on 5/Sep/20

More i look at the pic with 6'7.25-6'7.5 n/o shoes measured Andrew Wiggins (6'7 in afternoon) more in saw a 1.25 diff
So his 6'6 measurement are not Fake or poorly make, he is 6'6 morning and probably 6'5.75 or minimum 6'5.5(197) in afternoon

I don’t recall Wiggins attending the combine. Wiggins next to 6’6” Scott Van Pelt doesn’t look 6’7” afternoon height. And he only is listed 6’7” by the league today with the “new rules”. I could believe him being 6’6-6’7 range though and he is about 1.5” taller I’d say. Butler also looks small with Ben Simmons who is over listed here too

+ He was measured 6'6 in his 2011 Draft, at the Time when he had no hair whatsoever
And 6'7'75 with big shoes
So at least 6'5.5 afternoon
Jean214 said on 14/Mar/20

You cant say Butler is just 6'5
In the very good picture "Yourname" posted with 6'7 afternoon Andrew Wiggins and 6'6 kawhi (just look the pic when he is in socks with 195 Kobe, cleary 198 afternoon)
Butler look 1 inch to 1.5 inch max shorter than Wiggins and if you look very well with Kawhi (remove his hair and take care of kawhi imperceptible advanced toward camera) you will see that he the same height(removed kawhi being a bit closer to the camera) and you will see that in reality Jimmy is at max 0.5 shorter than 6'6 afternoon Kawhi Leonard
So Jimmy Butler is 6'5.5 (he look a lot shorter in game and picture because of his morphology).
If you doubt look again the picture with 6'8.75 in shoes Wiggins (i Guess measured 6'7.25-6.7.5 without and strong 6'7 afternoon, he look 0.75 to 1.25-5 max than him, i take the Last one) So at the lowest if im about to Guess him i will Say 6'5.5
This is why he claimed a tremoundous 6'8
I'm quite often in the site and i remarqued you severely note. (WE ARE talking about Afternoon height not lowest)
So 6'5.75-6'5.5 for Butler

@Editor Rob: this one may not be the best pic but I haven’t yet seen one on this site. How much height difference is there between Butler and his Heat teammate Bam Adebayo? I would’ve guessed around 3” or so although it can be more at times. Adebayo measured 6’8.75” when he was drafted although it’s safe to say that it’s probably an early morning height measurement.

In that photo I don't think there's more than 2 inches
Canson said on 20/Feb/20
Kawhi was Only measured 6’6” barefoot and Kawhi is clearly taller than Butler in the pic by at least half inch. His shoulders and head are both higher. He’s also shorter than Andrew Wiggins.

Lmao these comments are clueless. Jimmy is def 6’7 w/o shoes idk what kinda conspiracy goin on here. He’s the same height as Kawhi If not taller. I’d understand 6’6.5 but 6’5?!?

Overlisted. He’s not as tall as Kawhi Leonard. If Kawhi measured 6’6” flat he would be 6’5.5 or 6’5 5/8 afternoon height so 6’5.75 around lunchtime. Kawhi is clearly at least a full cm if not half inch taller than Butler.
Canson said on 3/Jan/20
Agreed 6’5 range
Basketball fan said on 2/Jan/20
Looks 3 inches shorter than Bam Adebayo

About 6’5” or 6’5.5”
Canson said on 16/Dec/19
Watching the games against the Lakers, he looked about 6’5” or a hair over with Anthony Davis. He’s not even a weak 6’6
Canson said on 2/Dec/19
@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
joe### said on 28/Oct/19

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
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”.

Canson said on 7/Oct/19
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 said on 5/Sep/19
Dream said on 18/Aug/19

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


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.

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Aug/19
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

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?


Jimmy Butler with MCW — Click Here

Bo Burnham with MCW — Click Here


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

Click Here
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

Click Here
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! 😁👍

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.
