It’s funny how everyone is saying his height is false or he didn’t measure it etc. why is it that nobody says that about Dwayne Wade or others who aren’t as tall as they are listed and instead inflate KD. Common sense here look at him wth Draymond Green who Coach Steve Kerr and Coach Alvin Gentry said is 6’5” not 6’5.75 like his pre draft (likely a morning height maybe even rounded up) KD is at most 4-4.25” taller. So if his pre draft is 6’9 flat he’s not over 6’9.5 today tops meaning maybe he grew 1/2” but no more if even that.

The NBA wouldn't overlist a guy by a full inch lol.

He's clearly shorter than 6-9.75 DeAndre Jordan when they play together. I looked at them closely when they were standing at the foul line together. Durant looked 6-9 MAX next to him. He didn't even look 6-9.5
Thunderfin said on 7/Apr/18
Rob, this height is false. Time for an update. Durant literally said himself he's much taller than his 6'9'' listed height:

Well he did admit to lying...so he could be lying about that too...but 6ft 10 range may well be the truth!
viper said on 6/Apr/18
So the 6-8 for Grant Hill could be an in shoe height?
Canson said on 5/Apr/18
@Viper: Zo has a 6’9.5 measurement but there is no in shoe only a barefoot (that likely is a shoe height and he was told he was actually 6’8” in the article I posted despite measuring the exact same as his pre draft in his freshman year in college) I doubt he grew and it’s hard to believe next to Ewing or Dell Curry or LJ. I’ve never met Ewing but have met LJ and Curry both. I stood right next to Curry and talked to him at RDU airport in 2002. He’s abkut an inch shorter than me maybe a little less because he looked about 1” taller or so than my 6’2.5 cousin who stood next to him. I would put Curry in the 192cm range. The max maybe 6’3.75 and possible I just had a slight footwear advantage on him. LJ when I met him Looked about 1” taller than me. And I saw a pic where a buddy of mine that is the same size with Christian 6’5 3/8 met him and they were identical. He even said the same. My buddy is about 6’5 1/4 at his low When we measured him even recently and even was 196 flat at night after being on his feet. Hes 6’6 out of bed on the nose according to him. I presume Lj is the same height. NBA didn’t do 1/8” increments or even 1/4” in 1991 when he was drafted so it’s even possible he’s only 196 but I’ll give him 6’5.25. Next to them or to any others even rodman Mourning looks 6’8” with them. We could argue 6’8.25 maybe but Mourning himself admitted he’s only 6’8 in the articles I posted
viper said on 2/Apr/18
Wasn't Mourning measured at 6-8.75? I guess I can buy 6-8 and change. Never seen him up close.

Grant Hill is the one I'm a bit perplexed. Met him at age 13. My 6-0 dad interviewed him so I could get a bit of a guage. Honestly, a full 6-8 where the paper said he measured may be a bit hard to buy.
Frost said on 2/Apr/18
Very odd average guess
Canson said on 28/Mar/18
@Viper: also wanna add that Larry Johnson at most times looked 3” shorter than him. I’ve met LJ in person and at most he’s an inch taller than I am 2-3 cm. 6’5 and change (6’5.25) maybe not a full 6’5.5 but that’s expected because they didn’t do 1/4” increments in the NBA let alone 1:8 which they have never done even today not to mention LJ admitted he’s 6’5”

Canson said on 28/Mar/18
@Viper: want your opinion because you may know. have you ever met Alonzo Mourning or know anyone who has? I never have but I do know a couple (1 not so well) that have gone to school at GT when Ewing was there and they said he’s at most 6’10”. I brought this up a while back the Zo is only 6’8 (quite possibly 6’8 and change). Zo admitted this. This was here on this site. Tell me what you think with 7’1 Dikembe Mutombo and Ewing who is 6’9/6’10. Him being listed 6’9.5 is a shoe height at best may just be 6’9 or 6’9.25 in them really but is also the reason why so many people here are overlisted. I mean 6’9.5 is still underlisted for a center and they would at least put him 6’11 if he were really that height barefoot

@Jason: that’s arguable in many cases because of how he looks but he’s shorter than Deandre Jordan. I think with him it’s more how the NBA overlists than him under but I can agree he’s likely not only a flat 6’9. Maybe 6’9.25
Canson said on 26/Mar/18
Thank you Viper! Someone with some sense finally
viper said on 25/Mar/18
The NBA doesn't underlist guys. He's clearly shorter than 6-9.75 DeAndre Jordan
Jason 193cm said on 25/Mar/18
@Big al He might be 6'11 out of bed, but he's nowhere near that by celebheight standards. I personally think he's a flat 6'10, but many here argue he's even lower than that.
Big Al of Bondi said on 23/Mar/18
Where most players are listed a bit higher than their actual heights, Durant seems to be the opposite. He is said to be closer to 6’11, but downgraded to 6’9 so he has a better impression of the small forward position.
Canson said on 23/Mar/18
@Jason: maybe 207. A touch less than Deandre Jordan who was 6’9.75
Jason 193cm said on 20/Mar/18
208cm seems like a good shout
Canson said on 14/Mar/18
@Brady Narbut: no chance. He was measured 6’9” at the combine and is even shorter than Deandre Jordan who measured 6’9.75 albeit not by much. Maybe he’s 6’9.5 or .25
Canson said on 13/Mar/18
@Johnson: he was never 6’9” here. Rob had him 6’9.25 before now 6’9.5 so 1/4” is all. But he is either of those two marks or between more likely
Brady Narbut said on 13/Mar/18
His actual height without shoes is 6’10.75” because in an interview with KNBR he told them so.

Johnson said on 11/Mar/18
Little upgrade at last!!!

6'9 was a joke
Canson said on 10/Mar/18
I think Rob was right with 6’9.25 but this is the max he would be. He’s slightly shorter than Deandre Jordan and only 1” taller than David West who was measured 6’8.25. Assuming afternoon height for him
Canson said on 4/Mar/18
209.5-210 out of bed
206.5-207 at his lowest
Canson said on 3/Mar/18
Guys KD didn’t not magically grow 3”. He was 6’9” pre draft and is at best what Rob lists him here today. 6’9.5. May even just be 6’9.25. People don’t grow that much at 19. Maybe half inch not 3” or even 2” prob not even an inch. Stop the foolishness lol
Orion Marshala said on 26/Feb/18
KD grew to 7’0
Johnson said on 18/Feb/18
Durant looks even taller than Bill Walton

Come on guys do not be blinded

Not idea how tall is Walton nowadays anyway but do not be blinded
Canson said on 17/Feb/18
It’s hard to tell how tall Walton is today at that age. I doubt he was really much over 6’11” peak maybe 6’11.5. People love to exaggerate how tall people are for some reason which includes but is not limited to measuring or assessing someone’s height in shoes often to make themselves taller by inflating the other person. Or inflating another basketball player to make them taller by first inflating a Bill Walton who used his barefoot height as well. Key to remember is a lot of those centers of that era or the era following were inflated. Including Patrick Ewing who was a hair under 6’10 by his own admission and Hakeem Olajuwon who was 6’9” range as well David Robinson who was 6’11” (only about an inch taller than Duncan who is 6’10).
Canson said on 16/Feb/18
Durant is 6’9” range barefoot. Best case is how Rob has him listed here and 6’9.25 like he had could be even better. He was measured 6’9” when he was drafted. It’s funny how people always disregard that for one the pre drafts (not the case his year) are early AM and two that they would typically inflate vs downgrading someone. Instead someone who legitimately measured the height they did is “taller” than what he measured. And so what about the claim his 6’11 is in shoes likely the 6’10.75 he claims is his shoe height earlier in the day. If he were a legit 6’11 or near that he would be taller than Tim Duncan and he’s not he’s shorter and he would be taller than Dwight Howard and Deandre Jordan. He’s shorter than DJ at least and maybe Howard as well. They’re at best the same height. He’s not taller than Howard who is also 6’9”
Canson said on 16/Feb/18
@Junior: I agree with you. Durant isn’t as tall as Duncan and only about half inch on 6’8.75 serge ibaka best case 2cm and that’s if ibaka is actually that at is his low and not 6’8.5 possibly. He’s no higher than rob has him listed here

@Rob

Kevin Durant deserves an upgrade

Bill only really claims 6ft 11, but I gave him close to 7ft. Today he might actually be 6ft 11 flat and you can certainly argue KD is around 6ft 10
Nero said on 15/Feb/18
Well, he's got to be at least 6'10" without shoes, being almost as tall as Bill Walton who's 6'11".

Kevin Love is not over 6'7.75" and not under 6'7.25" and Kevin Durant claim by fans to be 6'10-6'11 was a joke. Love aggregate is 6'7.5" safe zone and doesn't look over 2" shorter. Rob listed Durant at the correct height not to mention he could drop as low as 6'9.25" by evening/night.

I would say KD is 6'11", he claimed 7'0" with shoes. He's about 0.5 inches shorter than Greg Oden.
Canson said on 16/Jan/18
@James: that could be right. May be more like what Rob initially had him listed 6’9.25 and Lebron 6’6.75 or Lebron could be a full 6’7 possibly
Canson said on 16/Jan/18
@James: that could be right. May be more like what Rob initially had him listed 6’9.25 and Lebron 6’6.75
James said on 16/Jan/18
207 cm. Looks just about 2.5 inches taller than Lebron
Canson said on 2/Jan/18
@Johnson: you’re definitely not a downgrader!
Canson said on 1/Jan/18
Well said Christian. Another one to add to that was Scottie Pippen when he played in Chicago was listed 6’7” back then. He may have been 6’6.5-6’7 but was a good roundup vs a shoe height. But the other guys you mentioned are close to their barefoot heights. KD may be a hair above 6’9” like rob’s original 6’9.25 or could only be classic 6’9. I think 6’9-6’9.5 is the most. That’s how he looks next to Draymond Green who is about 6’5/6’5.25. You would probably edge Green (nothing noticeable) imho or be the exact same as him on the days you come down to 6’5.25
Johnson said on 31/Dec/17
I tell them Durant is 2.08 without shoes not 2.10
Johnson said on 31/Dec/17
@Christian yes outside this forum everybody tells me that I love downgrading basketball players they tell me Kevin Durant is 6'11 and I tell them that he is 210 without shoes

Then some people tell me: I do not mind barefoot height they play with shoes hahaha
Lebron fan said on 30/Dec/17
I’d say 6’10”
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 30/Dec/17
A lot of people I know especially basketball fans and some of my friends believe Durant's underlisted by NBA and is actually 6'11". That's because they base it off on other players' offical listings which are inflated. When the truth is Durant's not underlisted. It's just that other players are overlisted. Only other guys I know in the modern era whose listings are pretty legit are Garnett, Tim Duncan and Pau Gasol. I'm sure there's more but I'm not a huge bball fan so I don't know any others.
Canson said on 28/Dec/17
@Junior and Johnson: maybe not an ordinary 6’9” he could be over I think too.
Junior said on 25/Dec/17
@Johnson

Good eye sight bro!
Canson said on 17/Dec/17
KD is 6’9” range
Johnson said on 17/Dec/17
13 cm taller than Elena Delle Donne
Logan said on 16/Dec/17
Looking at him beside another 7'0" man KD is about 6'10"- 6'11" but there is no way he is 7'0"
Canson said on 11/Dec/17
@Duhon: I’m thinking 6’11 based on that pic

@Joe: looks like Embiid has a camera advantage too. KAT could just be 6’9 range the NBA has done that where guys are smaller than their prevdraft shows them to be. Dwayne wade and John wall both look about an inch shorter than the draft listing shows.
Canson said on 11/Dec/17

@Free: most people here you will see just want to make people taller I wouldn’t take some very seriously
Canson said on 10/Dec/17
Thank you Free someone who isn’t an inflater you and Junior actually aren’t. Both accurate. Durant could be a strong 6’9” but not 6’10.

@johnson: I’d go with maybe 206-207 but your estimate is reasonable just because he does tower. At least you aren’t saying he’s 6’10 or higher like others do
Johnson said on 8/Dec/17
it is obvious Kevin Durant is not more than 2.08. The argument is between 2.07-2.08 range

@Free said on 28/Nov/17

NBA listing full of lies and even their age, weight and wingspan. Don't trust that much. Almost all players were listed an average 2" higher than their barefoot height. If Durant is really 6'10 at least get listed at 7'0 by NBA not 6'10. Kevin Love was listed at 6'10-6'11 and was under 6'8 for pre-draft measurement. I did say Durant can get a measurement by the doctor in the morning at a full 6'10 and came a bit below 6'9.5" before bed.
Free said on 28/Nov/17
If Durant grew to 6-10 he would be listed at 6-10. Common sense people
Free said on 27/Nov/17

So we have a 6'8 and a 6'10 guys here, wow.
Canson said on 20/Nov/17
@Greek: i get what you were saying about Simmons and Noel etc. i believe you on Okafor he looks 6’9” Simmons if under 6’9 may be 6’8 but no less. Duhon has a point that he can look near Durant but he is also very long for someone his height kinda like Brandon Ingram is but bigger in the body. Ingram is 6’8” as well imho. One thing is pics like that i wouldn’t always count on esp with the distance
joe### said on 20/Nov/17
Embiid is only 6´11 Click Here
Greek said on 19/Nov/17
For those that get things confused . Embiid is 7ft1.5 in shoes or rounded up 7ft2 . 7ft barefoot . All those guys are measured in shoes . Idk why embiid hasnt been upgraded to 7ft2 in shoes though . he's legit 7ft2 in shoes.
Duhon said on 19/Nov/17
I think Embiid is a very strong 7'. Probably wakes up to 7'1", Kg is a very strong 6'11" himself and there is a noticeable height difference to the two.

Either way it's interesting how two teammates Embiid and Simmons are listed quite close to their barefoot heights, a rarity in the league.
Canson said on 19/Nov/17
The pic with Embiid and Durant puts Embiid 6’11” range possibly 7’0 is he’s lucky. Sorry but Durant is no higher than 6’9 and change maybe what rob has him listed meaning Embiid isn’t much more than 7’ or 6’11.5 and he doesn’t edge KG by much maybe max 1”. People don’t realize that Embiid is favored in that picture with them
Canson said on 18/Nov/17
Duhon is more accurate in his assessment than the last couple posters Simmons likely is around 6’9 or so like Durant is. Noel is not 6’11. He’s max 6’10. And Just because the Articles list Embiid at 7’2 doesn’t mean he is. There were articles saying Garnett was 7’2” when he played and the timber wolves (flip Saunders as well) said he was 7’2 when he isn’t. He’s 6’11. Embiid is likely 7’0” barefoot i won’t rule him growing out as he edges Simmons and Noel out as well as KG but if he were 7’2” he’d be listed that way by the NBA as remember he is a center

@greek: your assessment is closer to accurate as well then him being 208 or Embiid being 7’2 which are both very foolish

@Johnson you know nothing about height if you think thats two inches . The average nose is 2inches long from eye level. durants eyes are well below embiids nose even with his 1cm shoe advantage . pls go back to the drawing boards and learn a thing or two about human body parts before making an argument on here.

Canson said on 29/Oct/17
@Warren: DJ still looks fractionally Taller than KD. It’s not much but when they were in line on the Olympic pic it was obvious imho. Maybe 1/4-1/2” max. I’m not denying KD isn’t over 6’9” but I doubt it’s by that much. Maybe strong 6’9” like 6’9.25-.5. He doesn’t look more than maybe 4-4.25” taller than Draymond green. I put green 6’5 maybe 6’5.25 like his coaches have said (closer to 6’5 than 6’6) along with his former GM that said draymond is the third shortest warrior. That’s also judging the difference with Shaun Livingston who looks a legit 198-199 imho
Warren said on 29/Oct/17
Even him average guess's easily could over be 6'9.75", so I'd give him 208cm
Warren said on 29/Oct/17
At my eyes at least I can see him and DJ is the same height! KD needs a little bit up or DJ needs a super down shouldn't it be? both could be 208cm range
Canson said on 24/Oct/17
@Junior: I agree on the two bigger guys. Jordan may just be 6’9.5 but butler doesn’t look more than 196 max. 6’5” isn’t out of the question for him either. He isn’t even as tall as Kawhi Leonard and 6’6” for him looks a morning height. I put Leonard at 6’5.5 at his lowest
Junior said on 24/Oct/17
@Canson said on 21/Oct/17

6'5 is too low for Butler. He look between 6'5.25-6'5.5" i will rule out 196.5cm lowest for Butler and other two lowest for KD 206.5cm and DeAndre 207.5cm.
Canson said on 23/Oct/17
@JordanTK: I don’t think Durant is quite that tall. Maybe he grew but about what Junior said maybe to 6’9.5 or 6’9.25. Do you have a source where you saw him Growing to 6’10.11?
Jordan TK said on 22/Oct/17
Oh durant got taller after he drafted he's now 6ft 10.11 inches in barefoot and 6ft11.25 with shoes. Maybe 207.8xxcm ~~208.3cm in barefoot. 2m10.xxxcm in shoes. Wow it amused me that he was standing by same position(small foward) players in nba. He's height is close to slightly tall powerfowards and average center. And he also has very long wingspan.

@Junior: Thing with butler is that’s a morning height for him and looks a bit inflated with Pippen. I’d put Butler more like 6’5”. DJ 6’9.75 like when drafted KD could be what you have him but also could be what rob had him previously at 6’9.25

@Junior: sometimes pointing your head down can make you taller actually esp if your Crown is very point like Charles Barkley has. Odom I agree but would say he’s max 6’9” flat. He makes Kobe look 6’5” at times or 6’4.75. That’s a 10cm-11cm diff with him. As for Durant I think more 6’9.25 at his lowest but maybe 6’9.5 is possible if he grew. Def not 6’10 tho. Durant doesn’t look much more than 6’9 and change with draymond green either
LeBlanc said on 20/Oct/17
He definitely is on the dot 207cm
Junior said on 20/Oct/17
@Canson

I hardly take Draymond under 6'5 if he measure 6'5.75" in the morning pre-draft and well say if Bosh is 6'10 lowest that would put KD solid 6'9-6'9.25", maybe after all KD did not grow that much upon pre-draft measurement at 6'9 which those 6'9.75-6'10 plus guessing were just delusion from fans. I would not go under 206.5cm lowest for Durant and probably 207cm before bed a chance too.
Canson said on 18/Oct/17
@Junior: 6’10.25 was his listed pre draft so him being 6’10” isn’t a downplay as he could easily dip to that number in the afternoon or evening. As for KD looks right and I agree. A strong 6’9” than a weaker one or flat and is an easy 6’10 or so out of bed. Looking at him with draymond green tho he makes draymknd look 195cm at times. 6’4.75. I believed Dray is a solid 6’5” at his lowest (not noticeably taller than Kobe)
Junior said on 16/Oct/17
Chris Bosh who downplay claim 6'10 was atually 6'10.25-6'10.5" and look about an inch taller than KD, so how could KD even be 6'10.75" with no shoes on. It must be a joke. Btw 6'9.5" might be his lowest and 6'10.5" out of bed.
Canson said on 9/Oct/17
@Johnson: but that’s what all of you say for rose that he grew one plus inches actually

@Realist very uncommon your case. Normally at 18 you are done. And a whole inch after 18 is rare
Johnson said on 8/Oct/17
He looks 6'10. Please Rob, check pictures I am sure he grew up a fraction since 18 years old!!
Canson said on 7/Oct/17
Some grow until 21 or so but on this site it’s overblown it doesn’t happen all that often. People say that kind of stuff to make celebs higher
Realist said on 7/Oct/17
I grew until 22 but at a very SLOW rate like .25 to .5 inches a year from 5'6.5 at 15th birthday to 5'7 at 16th birthday to 5'7.5 at 17 to 5'8 at 18 to 5'8.25 at 19 to 5'8.5 at 20 to 5'9 at 21 to about 5'9.5 at 22 and I can improve to near 5'10 with extremely good posture and low weight
CT said on 6/Oct/17
There's a picture of the big 4 of golden State standing together and durant looks about a hair over 4 inches taller than draymond and klay. So id say he's a flat 6'10" knowing that klay and draymond are a quarter under 6'6" per draftexpress.
Duhon said on 1/Oct/17
Yes Embiid I mean.
Canson said on 30/Sep/17
@Duhon: you mean Embiid right? I can buy 7' for him definitely but okafor looks 6'9"
Canson said on 30/Sep/17
@Johnson: that's true. I did most of mine between about 12-16 I think. I was 6'0" at 13 and was about 6'4 at 15/16. I may have grown at 18 a touch as I remember being measured for basketball senior year and told I was 6'4. Don't know if that was with change and they just didn't add it on but I was 6'4.5 freshman year college but that I maybe a morning height. i know one year or two maybe junior and or senior they measured in the afternoon as well and I was said to be 6'4.5 then as well which is what I have stuck with (likely was 6'4 3/8 and rounded up). I've been 194 range for a while most likely then may have lost a mm or two due to the disc problem I have in my back or could've been thicker hair one of the two

@Insomniak: I agree with everything you said. Btw are you still growing now at 19? I know at one point you mentioned you had hit 6'6". Didn't know if that's where you still are
insomniak said on 30/Sep/17
I'm 19 now btw and yes I'm still growing(much slower rate). As far as people growing over 18 their have only been a hand full of people who I've known who have grown over an inch,so it's pretty rare. most guys I knew stopped growing at 16-17 junior of high school.
Johnson said on 29/Sep/17
Most of us stop growing at 17-18. There are some people stopping at 15 as so at 18-20 can be possible but small fraction, moreover so in players, if they are developed and they have reached ready for playing elite they are already adults. Normally people who grow after 18-21 are just kids who wouldn't never reach first level in sport until they are fully developed
Canson said on 29/Sep/17
@Johnson: I have to agree. Embiid isn't over 7'0" maybe he grew after being drafted. Next to Ben Simmons or Nerlens Noel he isn't 4" taller than Noel maybe 3 on Simmons or 3.5.

@Christian: he mentioned he was measured after being up 18 hours at the doctor but laying down. But not to disrespect Keis but his claims are egregious. He may be that height or near it just may not be good at judging height. First he says makes up stuff. He claims Kevin Durant was measured 6'9.75. When He wasn't. Then says Embiid is 7'2" because "the sixers say he is" lol. That doesn't change the fact the NBA hasn't changed his listed height from 7'0". Then he said a teammate next to Lebron makes Lebron 6'7.75 Lebron is shorter than Thompson and Love both who measured 6'7.75 as well as boozer who also measured it. Thompson may have grown a touch but boozer I've heard people meet him say 6'7" ish "maybe" 6'8. As for listings Carmelo is listed 6'8. He's at most an inch taller than you if even that barefoot. Caron Butler is listed 6'7" he's at most your height but I'd say a touch less honestly and prob just 196 flat or 6'5/6'5.25 range. John Wall is listed 6'4 but know two people one a season ticket holder through his company at 6'3" say he's taller and another friend 6'0" say wall off the court too had him by maybe 1.5-2" when he has seen him. Not to mention wall next to beal isn't close to 6'2.75. And SJH met wall as well and said 187cm. I know people can grow but some people on this site expect that every player under 21 who is drafted have grown which is ridiculous. Most don't after 18 really. I've been my same height since I was 18 as have most people I know may have gained a tiny fraction between 18-19 at most.

Insomniak, for example, has grown a lot from 15-18 and even at 18 and may still be growing as is the case with some other posters too but that isn't common for everyone. But here some say every player grew. I can look at pics with Lebron or Westbrook or Derrick Rose or Curry and tell none of them have really grown much compared to some players such as Hinrich Butler or Anthony that I've met face to face. Russ looks his drafted height although that may even be his lowest as does Carmelo (I can't see Melo dropping under 6'6"). Rose and curry look under theirs imho but by 1/2" below. Rose not sure because they said 2008 was afternoon draft combine but Curry was a morning measurement so I can see him being 6'2" flat and only being 6'1.5 later or 6'1 7/8 and only being 6'1 3/8 or 1/2. I say all of this because the 2009 draft combine was held early morning 600 or so as the article stated

I highly doubt under but 6'10.5 can look shaky at times. That pic you used is hard to tell despite them being back to back due to the angle.

@Keis

At what time were you measured though? It's not impossible that you could've measured very early in the day, and think that you're a legit 6'8" at your lowest, and assumed Jordan to be over 6'10" because he looked 2 inches taller than you based on you being really 6'8". I'm not saying that you're not a legit 6'8", or that it's impossible that Jordan to have grown a bit since his 2008 pre draft measurement, but I strongly doubt he's 6'10" because he never looks it next to any players.

@Keis: Slam Magzaine? That is not a trustworthy site. that is a shoe height rounded up heavily there's a reason why the NBA don't list him as 7'2. He may still be 6'11. It's called marketing. At most he's 7' barefoot. A team can say what they want. Phil said Scottie was 6'9" barefoot when he played yet he is only 2-2.5" taller than Jordan and at most half inch taller than Rodman is. He's shorter than Horace grant by a couple inches too. Scottie is max 6'7". For Embiid he is 7'0 barefoot tops. They also "say" Russell Westbrook grew to 6'4/6'5 when he is still 6'2.25 like he was when drafted. Melo and Butler both have pics with him where all three look their draft heights. You can say all you want that those two grew they clearly didn't. Not only have I met both but in a pic next to Kobe neither look taller than that
Canson said on 27/Sep/17
@Keis: I'm not downgrading anyone. You upgrade people and make up listings. You clearly said below that Durant was measured at 6'9.75 and I just proved he wasn't. He was 6'9" flat Jordan 6'9.75. Those are their pre draft listings. And yes people can grow at 18. But it is not as common as you think.

And you're saying he's 2" taller face to face that could mean 1.75". There is virtually no difference. Looking st Jordan with Garnett he doesn't look 6'10 sorry. And Embiid being listed as 7'2"? The NBA lists its players in shoes that is common knowledge. They also list Carmelo Anthony as 6'8". He's 6'6" I've stood right in front of him and Durant is not 4" taller than he is. Nor is Lebron 2" taller than Melo it's less than 1". Caron butler is listed 6'7" but stood next to him as well and he's 6'5". I can see Embiid growing but that means 7'0" barefoot. How is he 7'2" barefoot next to Ben Simmons? Simmons is 6'8/6'9. I'm not the one downgrading players you are the one upgrading them so quit it. I can give a crap less what an announcer says Embiid is. By that they would list the Rock at 6'5" if he played. You make absolutely no sense. And ok you may be 6'8" but cannot judge height

@Canson I'm 6'8 barefoot and more than 6'9 in shoes I can upload paperwork proving it. And I didn't make up anything Embidd is announced as 7'2 if you ever go to 76ers games.Embidd is on no way 7 fee, I don't play but I go to lots if games because I am a huge NBA fan. And lol at pre draft measurements I was 6'7 in shoes at 18.5 now I'm 6'8 barefoot. Jordan I've actually met face to face, and even my cousin commented that he looked at least 6'10 or more and made me look small. Stop judging guys you have never met, I don't know why are you trying to downgrade these guys heights. 6'8 is not very tall to me some people are 7'8 and even taller.

Canson said on 25/Sep/17
@Keis: unfortunately I have to believe the pre drafts in this case over you. If it were the other way around I could but I can't take your estimates seriously. KD is not much shorter than jordan but Jordan's pre draft is 6'9.75. KD isn't over rob's listing for him and likely is less. That is exactly (at most) how jordan looks with kevin Garnett too. You have now inflated Joel Embiid Lebron Jordan And you "claimed" that KD was 6'9.75 on his Pre draft when he wasnt. He's 6'9. You make up stuff and You make some foolish claims about Embiid growing etc. he may have grown but not 3". Due to this your credibility is in question and like S.J.H said to you I have a hard time believing you are 6'8 if that's the route you are going to take. Unless you actually met KD you can't tell by looking in the stands. You would need to stand next to him or see him eye to eye.
Keis said on 24/Sep/17
@Canson again DeAndre is 6'10 and he is in no way taller than KD. And no KD is not 6'9 I'm 6'8 and went to multiple games last year, KD has no less than 2 inches on me. I was measured as a barefoot 6'8 on a table by doctors, and this is without me sleeping the previous night.
Canson said on 20/Sep/17
@anonymous: looking at KD more and more he looks no more than 207 but looks 206-207 a strong 6'9. Deandre Jordan is said to be 6'9.75 and he ever so slightly edges Durant in the Olympic photo where he is behind him. Not to mention dirk duncan etc are all taller than KD.
Canson said on 18/Sep/17
@Luca: galinari looks about 6'9 imho
Anonymous said on 18/Sep/17
I'm gonna sort this out immediately.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (who should be a listing here, as he is a well known basketball player) is a legitimate 6'11" (2.11cm) guy.
He has grown almost 5 inches since his rookie year in 2013 (insane!). You can look it up for confimation.
Now, Giannis was thrilled to meet his idol KD in the 2014 All Star Game in New Orleans and when asked about him, KD, he, Giannis, said that he, KD, thought was taller. So, given the fact that both players had shoes on and having in mind Giannis' legit 6'11" height and KD's bad posture I'd say KD is a legit 6'9.75" barefoot and defo 6'10.25" to 6'10.5" on shoes.
Click Here
Pause at 7:09. Difficult angle I know. However, Giannis seems to have the edge by an inch (both players are leaning towards each other).

P.S. "Giannis" is pronounced like Yanni the composer with an "s". The "G" does not sound like in the word "geometry" but rather like the "y" in "yogurt".
I'm Greek.
P.S2. Giannis needs a listing.

Embiid looks 4-5cm taller than garnett that's i gave him 7ft .Garnet can never be 6ft9 .The guy looks like a monster everytime especially during his playing days.6ft10 minimum currently .Simmons is really 6ft8 cause he even looks wee bit shorter than 6ft8 ingram in a rookie pic.Lebron James height is all over the place.Sometimes the guy looks 6ft6 even.Suspect cause of his weight .But 7hrs outta bed hes 200cm for sure .

He's 207cm out of bed 205.5cm is his resting height .Walks about at 205cm .DJ is 2cm taller .carmelo has dropped height looks 198.5cm .Ben simmons is legit 203cm sometimes may deep to 202cm .Embiid is a 213cm .Okafor is 6ft9 flat will edge out durant .Same as howard .If you wanna be a big guy 205cm is the best .208cm is max but you wont look as elegant as a guy like durant would .196-198cm is elegant but you dont give a giant vibe.

Agree with you on Melo and your perspective on taller heights. I think 196 is about as tall as one would want because it keeps you somewhat normal in daily life not having to duck much since it puts you at 198-199 in shoes. As for Melo, I met him before and he was 1.5-2" taller than I am (According to my wife and others standing next to us). I'm 193.9 at my lowest. I would estimate him to be 6'6-6'6.25. 198.5 is perfect for him! That's a lot of why I believe many of the other measurements for players are off which many of them likely are such as Dwyane Wade and don't believe Lebron is a full inch taller than Lebron but may be wrong there (i'd put LeBron at 6'7 max maybe 6'6.75 evening height). I think Ben Simmons may be a bit taller than that. He may be 6'8.5ish but you could be right too. I can see Embiid being that max. He's 6'11 on his last measurement but may have grown 1 inch.

I agree with the results of the poll. 6 ft 10 could be possible. 6' 9.5" is the minimum he can be.

If Durant is 2.06 then LeBron is 1.99. If Durant is 2.07 LeBron is 2.00. If Durant id 2.08 LeBron is 2.01.

I see 7 cm between them, not 6:

@feez: could look as low as 6'8.5 at times but my guess is maybe he's a full 6'9" barefoot. I say that because his body is physically longer than Lebrons even if his head isn't much higher all the time so he can at least give the appearance of 6'9" He has lots of hair which makes it harder to guage it

The guy was 6'9" when he was nearing 17 going on 18 in 2006, and then was measured 6'9" again barefoot. He was done growing. I don't think he grew a half an inch since then. When you know the real heights of NBA players he looks 6'9".

I'm now not overly convinced that he grew being he measured 6'9" barefoot 2 years in a row leading up to his draft. This listing here is an absolute max and could also buy Rob's previous listing of 6'9.25 since he is noticeably shorter than Deandre Jordan albeit prob 1/2" max 6'9-6'9.5 while DJ 6'9.5-.75 range at his low
Canson said on 13/Jul/17
@S.J.H: the most I can conceivably give him is 6'9.5 but he looks smaller than DJ clearly. 6'9 and change 206-207. The thing with Chris's estimates are that they are all inflated. He is a spammer on this site. When a predraft has the person listed it's always that "that person measured that height like Lebron" or "Magic or Bird say they're their listed heights so they must be" yet he says Durant is not his pre draft height but Oden is" or Barkley is 6'6/6'7 when the man himself says 6'4.75 and the Olympics says 6'4 5/8 and every coach or teammate says he's 6'4/6'5. Or that he has met AI and he's close to 6'1 yet every teammate coach opponent says 5'10/5'11. Then of course he knows AD is really 6'9.25 pre draft but makes up that he measured 6'10.5 barefoot. Now the Undertaker is 6'8" barefoot when Ali Baba clearly is his height just about. The NBA doesn't underlist they overlist. yet nobody says anything about that. it's only a complaint when someone downgrades someone here on this site. I

No offence if you're counting with shoes then Anthony Davies if 6'10.5 but he was say to be 6'9-1/4 without shoes and so Durant is under 6'10 for sure.

it's not that complicated guys............go look at a picture of him, with Anthony Davis (who was measured 6'10.5 at the combine, flat footed) and Durant is taller than. The lowest Durant can possibly be is 6'10.5. Without a doubt. He appears to be about 6'11
Mike said on 5/Jul/17
Seeing him play in person several years ago I'd say a soft 6'10" barefoot, 6'11" or close to 7' in shoes. He's one of those rangy thin, long-limbed guys who always gets pegged for being taller than he is. He has terrible posture so it's hard to say exactly but needless to say he's enormously tall.
Canson said on 4/Jul/17
@Joe: after seeing the video the 6'11" kimmel gave him may or may not be on the mark because of his long hair it's hard to tell. I'd say 6'10.5-6'11" is how it looks maybe 6'10.75 so barefoot probably 6'9.5 is more like it for him but you could also be right. But notice he did say he gets measured every year as do all players
Canson said on 4/Jul/17
@Joe: AD is tough to call. He was at an age where he could've grown but don't believe an entire inch. Looking at him with Boogie he doesn't look much taller than him so maybe his 6'10 is a morning measurement and he's really 6'9 and change like you said. My guess for Boogie is that he's a solid 6'9" but no more at his lowest. It's possible he was a morning measurement (likely) or that he was rounded a bit if it was a later measurement.

I believe his measurement or at least perception of it will vary from one perso. To the next depending upon what they think their true height is. If he's measured at a morning practice he's gonna be closer to 6'10 (slightly under because he will likely have been up an hour or two already) whereas afternoon may be closer to 6'9".

Everyone who watches basketball has seen this dude around centers. He was measured barefoot 6'9" at age 18. Of course he's grown at least an inch, but I'd say maybe more. Kevin Durant 6'10.25" natural. 6'11.5" in shoes/on tv.
Canson said on 21/Jun/17
6'9.5 tops and with contemporaries and the fact many sports heights probably aren't lowest heights this is a safe measurement for him. He may drop to 6'9.25 with a long torso like he has as well but I don't think he's a flat 6'9" normally

kevin durant is never 7ft with shoes (6'10.75 without)

6'9.5-6'10 real height.
Canson said on 18/Jun/17
@LG: maybe he's strong 6'9 like what he was initially listed or what rob has him today but I don't see 6'10". They overplay his height because he lists himself without shoes
LG said on 16/Jun/17
He was measured 6'9" without shoes at the NBA pre-draft camp in 2007 according to Draft Express. It was the same height that he was measured the year before at the Nike Hoop Summit. He was 18, nearing 19 during the pre-draft camp
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
Shouts to Warren for this pic as it was his that he posted. DJ has KD by a hair here. Barefoot 6'9.5 or .25 is good with 6'10.75 or 6'10.5 in shoes

If you look at the NBA ladder he is 6"11 imo similar to most centres
Canson said on 14/Jun/17
@J-Dog: he's not even quite as tall as Deandre Jordan is (6'9.75 bf). Rob pegged him perfectly based on Warren's pic. The 6'10.75 is a shoe height. He never looks more than 2-3" taller than Lebron does really
J-Dog said on 14/Jun/17
Hey Rob, ;)

-Do you feel it is now time for a height upgrade for Kevin Durant?

Height Ugrade Request: ~6'10.75" = 207cm

Quotation below:

"Since I love you guys so much, I was recorded at 6'10" and three-quarters with no shoes, so with my shoes on I'm 7-feet," Durant finally revealed.

So, why has Durant been listed at 6-foot-9 for so long? "I just like messin' with people. They just ask me so much... yeah, I just like messin' with people."
Editor Rob: he could still be messing with people...
Canson said on 13/Jun/17
@Warren: yes sir!! He played great!

He's a bit shorter than DJ is. But a hair is all. I'd still say 208 and 207 or DJ may be a hair shorter than his pre draft and be 6'9.5 and KD a hair less but I'll leave him 6'9.5 ESP since he's said to be 6'11" in shoes. I think 6'10.75 is in a sneaker and 6'9.5 barefoot. But jimmy butler lol? I don't believe he's 6'6" barefoot and never believed it. He looks 6'5 at most

btw he can look 208cm on the pic my friends

Canson said on 13/Jun/17
@YoungBlood: rob has him listed 207. To me that's the most he is. That makes him "near" 6'11" in basketball sneakers which is how he would otherwise be listed if he didn't choose to use his barefoot height.
YoungBlood said on 12/Jun/17
@Canson Is KD around 208-209 without shoes? Because clearly his shoes make you 3-4cms taller, which make him taller than most of the centers which he stands next to.
Canson said on 11/Jun/17
@Warren: my pleasure! Great question!!!!!

Prior to Friday I would've said there was no windows open for Cleveland. I still feel GS wins it in 5 since they go back to the Bay Area but a worst case 6. but what you said is spot on that Lebron was in this situation last year and ran the table games 5-7!! I have noticed that games 3 and 4 Cleveland ran small (especially in game 3) and was a lot for GS to handle (they had to move draymond to the 5 which they've done a lot over the last 3 years) but with Thompson having improved and a healthy love it's a lot for he and Iggy to handle. However now you have Durant who is surprisingly a great defender this year and goes toe to toe with Lebron every day
Warren said on 10/Jun/17
@S.J.H @Canson
Thks my friends, which team u think will win the game at this final btw?
In the last year Cavs did came from behind to win the game 1-3 to 4-3, I was extremely surprised
Can Cavs win this final game also? I'm a fan of Warriors tho
I do think next year also will Cavs vs Warriors lol
Canson said on 10/Jun/17
@Warren: DJ's height is a good measuring stick. He is 208cm and looks a hair taller than Durant. The more I see if Lebron today he looks a full 6'7" I would've thought 6'6.5 before but SJH is prob right 200cm evening
Canson said on 10/Jun/17
@Height: he was preceded by his finals competitor lol
Canson said on 9/Jun/17
@rising force: I can see 6'9.5 but no taller. Harden tho isn't 6'4. He's not that much taller than Westbrook who's 6'2-6'2.25. 1-1.5" I only give Durant that next to draymond green. And Kerr and gentry have both said green is 6'5 and the latter closer to 6'5@ than 6'6". For harden as mentioned before the pre draft of 6'4 just could be him at 6'3.76 and rounded up in the AM so chances are he's 191-192 as he for sure doesn't ever look a full 6'4" best to Dwight Howard either.
S.J.H said on 9/Jun/17
@Warren said on 8/Jun/17

There is no issue with their shoes because they wear the same type and Durant was standing a little behind Deandre Jordan. Durant could be anywhere 6'9.25-9.5 but not high as 6'9.75-10 Deandre. The odd is more 1cm between them most of time. One additional is that Durant doesn't look over 6'9.5 next to 6'7.25 lebron james in fact that lebron is more like a solid 6'6.75 guy everyone being argue that and 6'5 cam newton described lebron as a 6'7 player which will put durant at 6'9.25 most. Somewhere 6'9-9.5 will be Durant real height but def like 6'10 and more out of bed
RisingForce said on 8/Jun/17
I'm not fully convinced he grew. Some think James Harden's 6'4" measurement was earlier, but Durant looks about 5" taller here in 2012: Click Here Now here's Durant at about 20 1/2 years old with Dwight Howard: Click Here Durant would be probably be the same height if he stood up straight. Howard also measured 6'9", though some have mentioned 6'9.5" for him since he came out of highschool. Durant doesn't look taller than Anthony Davis to me, who measured 6'9.25". I'm not ruling out 6'9.5" or 6'9.75", but he looks taller because current NBA big men seem to have heights more inflated than ever before, teams often don't even have a traditional big man in their best lineup now and Durant's build and massive wingspan can make him seem taller, much like Anthony Davis actually.

I don't know the details Deandre Jordan and his height also, but Deandre is no more than 208cm barefoot?
but I can see 2cm? taller than Durant it seems, I'm not sure both shoes tho

Spencer said on 7/Jun/17
6'10.25
Canson said on 7/Jun/17
SJH is spot on. Deandre isn't as tall as Garnett is and it's about 1.5". The players in the NBA give him taller because that's his shoe height and they all claim theirs. Remember Durant also said Paul is 6'0" "I'm 6'11". Paul isn't 6'0" barefoot at most 5'11. Durant is probably 6'9" and change and think the 207cm is fair enough. He's about 4-4.5" taller than Draymond green and Green although a 6'5.75 pre draft is closer to 6'5 than he is 6'6" according to his coaches both former assistant Alvin gentry and Steve Kerr.
S.J.H said on 7/Jun/17
@Warren said on 6/Jun/17

You can count on 6'9.75 deandre jordan being 6'10 before you judge durant at highest 6'10, because deandre is obviously not over 6'10 at most and look at least fraction to 1cm taller than durant. You can argue 6'9.75 for durant but i think more possible 6'9.25-9.5 is closer. Chris bosh himself claim he is 6'10 and fact that his a little taller than deandre.
Warren said on 6/Jun/17
Only 1cm grew since draft if he was late growth spurt?
could be 208cm for him Rob? I think he could be
his body proportion like LATE BLOOMER
Editor Rob: I can see the arguments for a taller listing...
Canson said on 30/May/17
@Johnson: I think he may have by maybe 1/2" maybe today he's 6'9.5 (his pre draft was 6'9" flat). Today he looks no less than 207cm imho (a hair lower than Deandre Jordan does) and about Dwight Howard's height. I think for him it's more that he received his measurement later in the day likely or was rounded down whereas a guy measured earlier at same height will appear shorter
Duhon said on 28/May/17
Johnson said on 27/May/17
Did he grow up since he was drafted? Look at the pics with Greg Oden

He was shorter than 6'9.5 back in the day

Yes it did look like he grew. He was measured 6'9" at 19 but stands taller next to legit 6'11" guys like Oden now then back then. His body didn't look particularity developed at 19 either.

I don't buy 7' In shoes but do buy that he is over 6'9" flat more like what rob has him listed 6'9.5. He can look 5" or close on draymond green at times so maybe 6'9 1/2 6'5"-6'5.25 for draymond as he isn't a lot taller than Kobe is
KH said on 19/Apr/17
Could be a little taller then this was 18 when officially measured by the NBA at this range. Almost always looks like the tallest guy on the court to me could be flat footed 6'10.

Canson (194 cm) 6'4 3/8 said on 18/Apr/17
@Christian: some nights I'm down to 6'4.25 as well if I go to the gym and don't lay down or reclined. Not quite 7/8" tho. You said your norm if sedentary is 196.4/.5 mine is 193.9/194 (i could prob still get 194 if I tried or weren't active at all and had a slight recline as I have before). If gym it's a full inch tho 193.7 to 196.2. Essentially you're a strong 6'5, I'm a strong 6'4. Either of us could get away if we wanted to saying weak 6'6 and weak 6'5" if we desired
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 17/Apr/17
@Canson

I'm a solid inch (2.5-.6cm) taller than you in the afternoon, but at night it's a 7/8" difference, or more specific 2.3cm. It seems as we shrink at a slightly different rate.
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@Christian: that's similar to how I am actually. Other than the first hour. I usually lose a full 3/8" or close. Im typically 6'4.75 after an hour. Then 6'4 5/8ish after 2. I'm 194 some times after 7 hrs and only lose the 1mm most of the time. And end up at 193.9. My lowest after being on my feet all night is 193.1 or 193.2 somewhere in there. So for me after 5 would be a hair under 6'4.5 prob so you're right we are about an inch apart so you listing a noon 6'5.5 would mean me 6'4.5 at noon
Christian-196.8cm (6ft5.5)Noon said on 16/Apr/17
@Canson

Not everyone shrinks at the same rate. Some people hit their normal low at noontime, others keep shrinking until a few hours before bed. Me personally, I typically wake @ 198.3 7AM and my noon height (5 hrs out of bed) is 196.7-.8 (which is closer to 6'5.5" than 6'5.25"). 8 hrs out of bed (past 3PM) is when I start to creep closer to 6'5.25".

198.3 out of bed (at times 198.1-.2)
197.6 after 1 hour
197.3 after 2 hours
197.1 flat after 3
196.9 after 4
196.7-8 after 5 (noon)
196.3 after 8
I don't drop much past this point. Only 1mm
196.2 at night (If I'm sedentary that day, I can hold 196.4-.5)

So between 5-7 hrs of waking up, I'm 196.5 on average, so that's right in the middle of 6'5.25" and 6'5.5" The lowest measured height I've ever gone was 195.4, but that was after having not slept or laid down for a couple days.
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
@Christian: your night and afternoon shouldn't really vary that much. Once you've been out of bed for maybe 7-8 hours you're as low as you'd normally be. Rob said himself that his low of 5'8 1/8 comes about 5-7 hrs after waking. What it may mean is that your normal low is 6'5 3/8 and 6'5.25 is an absolute low but even for you if you go out at night maybe to the bar etc and are on your feet all night you'd probably lose a full inch or more like I do. You probably in reality come down to 196 or even a hair lower for absolute low. Not sure rob really uses anything above the lowest height he assumes that is their lowest equivalent to his 5'8 1/8 whereas 5'8" flat is his absolute low I believe but he's shorter than we are so probably doesn't lose as much height
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
@Christian: I agree Michael Jordan is 194-195 and claims 6'6" still (in shoes rounded up). I have seen a few that do it but typically its former athletes. the 6'7" friend I mentioned was a teammate of mine In college as a matter of fact (he's 3 years older/2 years ahead) and was also my roommate. Our other roommate (my age) is an inch or inch and a half taller than I am and is actually taller than you (he's a good 197cm 6'5 5/8 or 6'5.75 probably if I had to guess and claims 6'7" to this day). Once during a reunion we had where a bunch of us met up the legit 6'7" even got on his case and said really "why do you want to be 6'7"?it sucks. I think it came up because he claimed it then they asked how tall he was and he also said 6'7". So yea some guys do that but don't see a lot really once you're above 6'5". If I were the height you are I'd claim 6'5" personally especially since you're only 1/4" over most of the time. I've just always viewed extra height at the stage we're at as pointless unless you're playing pro ball but some see it differently and I respect everyone's views. You're still a good height imho with fewer drawbacks than legit 6'6 and up have as you're probably not much over 6'6" in sneakers at your low (although morning height I can see being a bit steep in sneaks as you'd hit 6'7" with ease in jordans even after an hour).
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
@Christian: that's my normal night height if I don't hit the gym. Otherwise I can even get down another mm or two. 6'4 3/8 afternoon which is how I typically list myself here on the site as 6'4 3/8 (194cm). I lose most of mine in the first 5-7 hrs.

195.8-195.9 out of bed depending on day
194.8-195 after an HR
194.5-.6 after 2
Then hit 6'4.5 probably 3-4 hrs and by 5 I'm closer to 6'4 (under 4.5") than 6'5.
Usually at 7, I'm at 194 and lose 1mm more on a normal day

I claim 6'4 because I fee that's more reasonable since I spend majority of the day closer to 6'4" than 6'5. And because I have always seen the claiming higher especially with how I know height varies as silly imho. It's just a number to me. Not to mention I have taller friends one is around your height maybe a whisker taller (he's usually 196.4ish at his low) and he claims 6'5" then two taller that claim their lows of 6'6 (he's a solid 198.12 at his low I think) and a 6'7er who wakes up to 6'8" I believe and is still a hair over 6'7" at night.

For your height yours seems more progressive than mine. Do you wake at 6'6 1/8 or 6'6? If the former I can see 6'5.5 because you'd probably end up on a normal day more 6'5 3/8 then 6'5.25 and would hit the 1/4" if extra time on your feet or maybe hitting the gym. But waking to exactly 6'6" would put you at 6'5.5 after 2 hours normally. Someone our size (I say our size because I consider the range where you lose the inch to be 6'7 out of bed or higher) we lose 1/2" in 2 hours easily. Could also be how you measure meaning if you've been laying around and not as active that particular day
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 15/Apr/17
@Canson

I've met many tall guys who inflate their heights, not just short or medium guys. It's not uncommon for 194-195cm people to claim 6ft6, at least from my perspective. I respect you for rounding down your height. If I was in your shoes I would've claimed 6ft5, just like the majority of people. Btw, I always thought that 6'4 1/3" was your night height, not afternoon. Maybe I should start listing myself as 6'5.5" since I'm pretty much that mark in the afternoon, and Rob lists celebs based on their afternoon heights.
Balrog said on 14/Apr/17
Rob you think there is a chance he's 6'11'' out of bed?
Editor Rob: Balrog, some of these big fella's will surely lose 1.5 inches in height from dawn till dusk.

Shane: you as well my man! I respect your view and your objectivity here and admire your honesty!!!
Shane said on 13/Apr/17
@Canson yes, we disagree on measurement times but as you said both are legit. As for your not lying up, we disagree there as well since you are 6'5" out of bed which is your full height before compression. And if you used shoe height like so many people do, you obviously wouldn't be lying saying 6'5" or 6'6". Always enjoy discussions with you bro.
Inteval said on 9/Apr/17
Hi Rob. Durant has always been deemed as taller than his 6 ft 9 claim. People often thought of him as 7 feet tall. He always denied it. But earlier this year he finally admitted that he was measured 6 foot 10 and 3/4 without shoes and is 7 foot with basketball shoes. He is definitely as tall as other players who claim they are 7 feet tall.
Editor Rob: sometimes height liars do double bluffs, they go low and end up going higher...I do think you can argue he can pull off 6ft 10 range the more you see of him.
Canson said on 31/Mar/17
@Ker: well Lebron's pre draft reads 6'7.25. And he's shorter than 6'7.75 Kevin Love and 6'7.75 Carlos Boozer and only maybe 1/2 taller than 6'6.25 Melo. I'd give Lebron tops 6'7". He is even said to have skipped not been measured after surpassing 6'6".

Canson said on 29/Mar/17
@Ker: agreed and that's why I do the same as I am closer to 6'4" than 6'5. For guys who are very tall and content it is nothing in it to add an inch. I mean really. All you're doing is claiming a silly number it doesn't do anything for you as a person imho.
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
@Shane: the thing is tho it's not like I want to claim 6'5" or 6'6" and simply can't. Based on how you said I "could" claim 6'5 or 6'6" if I wanted. I could but I don't claim them because I don't see any value add in saying 6'5" over 6'4" at least not for me. I also have 6'5 6'6 6'7 friends who one rounds down like me from .3 range the another only gets to about .1. We all just claim what we are closest to. Imho It's a psychological thing for most but I don't buy into it. If I didn't know any better and didn't know it varied I'd prob just say 6'4 and round down and not even think twice if afternoon. Prob be the same if I measured 6'4.75 an hour out of bed I'd round up. But when it becomes why not round up it's basically implying one height is superior to another.but 6'4/6'5 are both decent heights but I don't really view 6'6" that way. That's too tall. My definition of 6'6" is 6'5.75 at someone's lowest and well over 6'6 in shoes like nearer 6'7. But I agree with Rob in his 5-7 hours (I've seen Rob say 5 whereas I've seen 7 on the net). 5 hrs for me is 194/94.1 and 7 193.9. I often say 6'4.5 for the most part but have gone to 6'4 and change because I'm closer to 6'4" than 6'5. I'm not even 6'4.5 after 4 hours on my feet usually. If I were maybe 6'4 5/8 at my lowest I'd say 6'5" possibly or just 6'4.5. 6'4.75 yes round up for sure. My other thing is I look at if a legit 6'5" at their lowest edges me it isn't worth the argument. I also look at it as I could measure the 6'4 1/3 easily and nobody is going to press me over not rounding up from 1/3". Once you're over maybe 6'2" at your lowest which I consider a true height you're really tall enough imho and don't see the need to tack on extra. In my book I use whatever height I stay at the longest during the day and that's in essence my true height. In your case tho I know you claim out of bed which is fine too. I wouldn't challenge you on it because you did measure it as well. I guess the perception varies from person to person place to place. I am I guess very practical in that adding a fraction to me has no bennies. I'm only really trying to make myself sound more impressive when I don't need to. Not playing prob ball and I am married.

@Shane: lol yea that isn't me tho. Not my style to lie up as I don't gain anything saying 6'5" over 6'4". I go with 6'4" as my dad is only about 1/2" shorter and one of my best friends is an inch taller he claims 6'5". I've never gotten it at least my case claiming one inch higher doesn't make or break me as a person. Really no incentive in my case. I look at it more as only really a confidence booster for people to claim higher etc. I'm not helping myself doing it otherwise

Out of bed 6'5.08 before bed 6'4.33 on a normal day if I don't lift or stand on my feet for long periods of time. As for claim I used to say 6'5" now 6'4" or 6'4.5 or 6'4 and change most of the time. I live in DC. People here lie and also shoes etc but never buy into it. I also wear casual shoes a lot so end up a hair over 6'5" (basically my morning height) on shoes by afternoon

As for you claiming 6'4", I'm not sure what part of country you are in but in Missouri nobody would think you were claiming 6'5" or 6'6" here as you have measured almost 6'5" barefoot if I read it correctly and 6'6" in shoes.

@SJH Durant is taller than Cousin, they even joked that Kevin shouldn't stand next to him because he makes Cousins look short. Also Kevin is taller than Davis, Davis just has the hair.
Canson said on 15/Mar/17
@Shane: my guess is you're probably close in height with Steph Curry. I'd put him around 6'2-6'2.25 out of bed and 6'1.25-.5 at his lowest. He could be within those ranges but him being in his feet late night can explain 6'1" appearances because he is more compressed. I consider true compression anything below your normal low (example anytime I drop below maybe 6'4.3 as my real low is 6'4.33-.36). But have also seen just over 6'4" before but at that junction you can tell you're compressed as your legs are much tighter and you feel the strain in the leg from the compression
Canson said on 14/Mar/17
@Shane: agreed. it's frustrating at taller heights because in the back of my mind i wouldn't want to be any taller than I am honestly. It's nothing if you aren't a pro athlete. If I were taller of course it's nothing I'd be able to do about it but when someone else begins inflating others just because they are insecure with their height it's an Issue. I used to also claim 6'5" when I played ball but got to the point where I look around and see I have taller friends and friends relatives close in height to where it contradicts them when they are being honest and that's the most disrespectful part imho more so than them inflating

@Canson: very true
Canson said on 13/Mar/17
@Shane: I agree quite a few people do claim their shoes and not think it's lying and it's honestly no issue if they do. however when they begin manipulating other people's numbers to accommodate themselves is when I have the issue. For example a 6'3" guy claiming 6'5 then saying no you're 6'6" etc
Shane said on 11/Mar/17
@Canson: I'd have to double check that but if I remember correctly it's normally more like 6'1" 1/4 on a,noncompressed day at night. As for out of bed, my peak is right at 6'2" barefoot. As far as your comment on taller people not claiming taller heights, I would agree fewer people over 6'5" or so claim a taller height BUT it's certainly not a concensus on that as I've known some really tall guys do it. One final note: not everyone who claims a height above their barefoot height is lying. There are quite a lot of people in the US who claim their in-store height and don't think of that as a false height or lying.

@Shane: I guess guys a few inches shorter around your height may do that even legit 6'3" guys claim 6'5 but I don't see many guys that aren't a true 6'6" claim to be 6'6" if they aren't unless they are playing ball at some level or unless they maybe get measured early and round up or maybe a heavier guy offsetting his weight. No offense to anyone who is this height but it's not a height of really want to be honestly. I have a different perception of height in that with shoes on meaning I'd look at the persons footwear first and gauge based on how they look next to me then if a full inch footwear I'd deduct the inch to arrive at. I go off of aftetnoonish height to compare. The thing to remember is that once you surpass maybe 6'4 or 6'5 barefoot most guys don't typically lie up as much as that is getting to be too tall. I have a 6'5, 6'6, and a 6'7 friend and none of which drop below those marks most of the time and one is very strong (the 6'5) as he only comes to about where I do in the 6'4" range. I'd say once you're not coming down below maybe 6'5.5-6'6" is where it begins really because you're usually in flats or slouching since Here in the states doorways are 6'7 and 6'8. I'd say where Christian is heightwise as well as my friend mentioned are about as tall as you could be 6'5.25-.5 to where you are still able to get by in a normal pair of sneaks without much ducking because it's put you around 6'6.25-6'6.5 probably at most which is not quite as bad as it's essentially the same as a normal 6'4.75-6'5 guy in a pair of boots which you do see often
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@Joe: after more pics I think Davis is a full 6'10. Durant maybe 6'9/6'9.5. I see KD with Draymond and my guess is Draymond is really only a full 6'5" maybe 6'5.25 based on what Kerr and Gentry have said about his height. Both say he's 6'5 so my guess is he wakes up at or near 6'6" and got rounded up or given a fraction which is common in the NBA
S.J.H said on 9/Mar/17
Demarcus cousins, anthony davies and durant they're all probably just a 6'9.5 guy in the morning and they're 6'9 flat after a tiring game done at night
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
@Shane: you said it very well my man! I am guessed as 6'6" often enough and usually 6'5" more than 6'4". Out of bed I'm like 195.8cm so you're right in some sneaks out of bed I would be probably a hair over 6'6.5 in sneaks. When I played ball in college I was listed both 6'5" then later 6'6 when they measured me barefoot at 6'4.5 or .75 then (a bit earlier in the day). I used to say I was 6'5" too when I played but at this point in my life not being a pro or college athlete even tho I am still an avid basketball and even avid fan of all sports I now claim my barefoot height of 6'4. I have lost a small fraction as I used to measure a full 196-196.1 (even saw 196.2/6'5.25 once but don't know if I measured properly that time but still came down to 194.1 that day) and always got down to just over 194 194.1-.2 at one point whereas now I'm consistently measuring 193.9 evening height now. Do you measure over 6'2" out of bed or just a flat 6'2? What do you come down to on a normal (noncompressed) day when you haven't hit the gym or on your feet late night? I've seen as low as 193.15 I believe several weeks back.
Shane said on 6/Mar/17
@Canson you would definitely get a 6'6" listing on most basketball teams (shoe height). Heck, measured out of bed at nba combine you could push close to 6'7" with the 1.5 inch footwear many players wear and I've seen guys your height in pro and,college with the 6'7" roster listing. As you know, I claim my out of bed barefoot height as that's my full height. Also, I sometimes claim 6'3" BUT when I do I always clarify and add "in shoes". I'm guessing it's not uncommon for you to get guessed as 6'6" by others.
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
Shane I agree with everything you said. I'm a strong 6'4" myself and have lost over an inch in a day being on my feet all day after going to the gym. I am about 3" taller than you that's it. Just under 6'5 1/8 out of bed and about 6'4 1/3 at night but have even seen just over 6'4 before (193.1 or .2cm). For Durant I believe he's 6'9" at his lowest and can prob be 6'10.5 out of bed
Shane said on 3/Mar/17
Just a general but important side note: most guys roughly 6'7" and up will lose AT LEAST an inch to compression from morning to night, especially during a game or tough back workout, for example. Some of these guys will lose closer to an inch and a half or so, especially once going past the 6'10" or 6'11" range. I myself am 6'2" barefoot out of bed, but unfortunately sometimes lose an inch or a touch over by nightfall. I wish I didn't, but I do (and I've checked with very accurate measurements many, many times). All that said, some people in the Durant height range can easily drop close to over even more than 1.5 inches from out of bed in morning to the middle of an NBA game running and jumping at night.
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@Joe: Davis 6'9.5 I can buy bare. Maybe Durant is only 6'9" flat and Cousins and he are the same height. Cousins got measured in the AM whereas not sure Durant was
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@James: I agree about 7cm (worst case 6.5). I'd say 200 for Lebron and 206.5-207 for KD. 6'9.25-.5 and 6'6.75 respectively

Anthony Davis has a small head that gives a higher illusion but I think he is in 6'9.5
S.J.H said on 26/Feb/17
I atually think durant is nothing over 6'9 and "6'10 with shoes" in fact the truth could be 6'9.5 in the morning
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Joe: AD supposedly grew but if he didn't has longer hair than KD does
joe### said on 22/Feb/17
hum,Anthony davis looks over 6´9.25
GreyValentine said on 20/Feb/17
He's around 6'10.5" with shoes. People exaggerate his height too much. Click Here
S.J.H said on 16/Feb/17
Click Here Durant short neck high up shoulder helps him to look taller than atual height but no way taller than 6'9.5 Demarcus Cousins

@GP

I have seem a guy who claim 6'6 on facebook he took a full picture with durant which can see their footwear looks about the same 1.1" Nike shoes and durant doesn't look over 6'9. Just telling truth
GP said on 25/Jan/17
I think he is messing with everyone by claiming he is 7" in shoes. I even don't agree with this upgrade. Look up All-Star weekend photo from 2015 and he is shorter than Duncan who is 6'10"-6'10.25" and was listed at 6'10" in Wake Forrest. I think he could be 207cm during the day but by evening he is at 206cm. If he is 6'9.5" then DeAndre Jordan is 6'10.5" and it's a fact he was measured at 6'9.75".
