@Anthony: very well said! Wade no way in hell he is 6'3.75. I'd put him 6'2.5-6'3 tops 6'2.75 is looking good for him 2" shorter than Kobe and about 2" shorter than Barkley
Anthony said on 27/Aug/17
Dwayne wade is not even close to 6ft4 barefoot .190cm max and im extremely generous .
Anthony said on 27/Aug/17
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.

He could be 206-207 doubt less. But at least you aren't one of the ones saying he's 6'10-6'11
Anthony said on 24/Aug/17
DJ cannot be 6ft10 less he'll belisted at 7ft .He is 207cm .AD and KD are 205cm on nose.chandler tyson is thought to be 6ft11 but he dont look it with KD .208cm guy max.Lebron is 200cm but looks to deep below that most times by 0.5cm .Shaq looks 212cm these days even 211cm but not less .KG is 6ft10 these days.Look at him and Embiid a legit 7ft barefoot .People like townes have their heights grossly exaggerated .Townes is only 205cm barefoot but listed at 7ft.Anyways I think these guys are giants .6ft8 is start of proper giant.6ft10 on nose is the max you can be without looking like an alien.Anything above is a sorry case really .At 7ft people and women will you way too big and unattractive and im being generous here
Anthony said on 23/Aug/17
Kevin durant is not 207cm he is 205cm.Most of you overestimate heights cause you dont know how huge these heights really are .A legit 205cm guy is gigantic and can be the top two tallest person in a average size city.
Canson said on 23/Aug/17
Good insights James! I'd go with 207/200 if 7cm diff. Durant can look 6'9" and change
Jeffery Lord said on 22/Aug/17
6'10.75 in shoes
James said on 19/Aug/17
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:

Lol Chris's comments below amaze me. You see him on Lebron's page say he measured 6'7.25 so he "must be that height" lol. But you see him on this page say AD was measured "6'10.5" and that Durant is taller when neither of them are measured that height one is 6'9.25 the other 6'9".

KD is 6'10.5 barefoot
Canson said on 5/Aug/17
@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
feez said on 3/Aug/17
What is your estimation for Anderson Varejao (listed at 6'10)
Canson said on 28/Jul/17
@Lou: well said. Maybe he's 6'9-6'9.5 range and they didn't bother with a smaller fraction but seeing some of the other bs like making up measurements for him is a bit ridiculous
Lou said on 27/Jul/17
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".
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 23/Jul/17
6'9" or 6'9.25"
even said on 22/Jul/17
6'9.5" legit
Unanimous said on 19/Jul/17
Rob,
What do you put Demarcus Cousins at?
Editor Rob: Durant probably has a better shout of being 6ft 10 than Demarcus.

Canson said on 18/Jul/17
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
S.J.H said on 12/Jul/17
I did point out 206.5cm for Durant. A full 207cm i don't see it when a 207.5cm DeAndre apear next to Durant. 6'9.25 previous listing is much fair
Canson said on 10/Jul/17
@Chris:

Click Here

AD measured 6'9.25 barefoot 6'10.25 in sneaks.

KD is shorter than Deandre Jordan and Jordan measured 6'9.75

The 6'10.75 is a shoe height for KD he's 6'9" and change tops
S.J.H said on 10/Jul/17
@Chris said on 7/Jul/17

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.

Chris said on 7/Jul/17
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.

yes i believe Anthony Davis strong 6´9 zones but not quite 6´10
Canson said on 3/Jul/17
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".

HeightEnvy said on 1/Jul/17
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

@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

ok said on 15/Jun/17
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
Warren said on 13/Jun/17
@S.J.H @Canson
Warriors WON!!! and he got MVP!!!! what a CONGRATS!!!!!
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.

@S.J.H
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.

Maybe definitely not under of a strong 6'9.25
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
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

@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.
Canson said on 14/Apr/17
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

@Canson I wish you'd stick with the inches lol I don't know what all the other stuff is.. I mean, I can look it up of course but I don't know it off top of my head to translate it all. 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.
Ker said on 26/Mar/17
@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
Shane said on 13/Mar/17
@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

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".
S.J.H said on 25/Jan/17
208cm morning i wouldn't argue and a few mm under 207cm by night is also possible we don't know it. So 207cm is way accurate
James said on 22/Jan/17
Yes, yes, and yes. Absolutely necessary upgrade. In the court he looks way taller than LeBron, I still think 2. 08 cm is very possible. But 2. 07 is OK too. Good listing!

There is some camera advantage for durant standing next to 6'9.5 Dermarcus cousins and a little bad posture for Dermarcus.

I saw him relatively closely a couple years ago at a game. His true height is so hard to read. He's really skinny with a head size of a normal sized man and a small neck but he has an absolutely freakishly long torso and arms and legs. He also tends to have bad posture in non-game situations. I'd say he's a very solid 6'9", probably closer to 6'10" without shoes. With shoes probably 6'11" tall.

Durant has admitted now he is actually 6'10.75" without shoes. Is it possible he grew 1.5" since he was drafted at 19? I can believe Durant has grown since 19 (not sure about the 1.5" part) and he is actually one of the few NBA stars who insisted on being listed at his original drafted barefoot height.

@Joe: in that pics less than four inches. My guess for Green is he's 196-197 maybe 6'5.5 or slightly under and Durant 6'9 and change. Green and Klay look the same or green may edge Klay out in other pics
Canson said on 22/Jul/16
@Height: you made an excellent point. Videos are good comparisons esp if side by side. I saw what you were saying for Manning and Kobe Bryant and they are close in height. It's tough to tell honestly. I see manning as slightly taller but not more than 1/2". The thing with Manning is I can't pin down whether he's the 6'5.25 after the neck surgeries only because he looked shorter than JJ Watt in the PP Johns commercials. But agree he's at minimum a flat 6'5 even to this day. Looked a cm shorter. I'd easily buy 6'5.25 or 3/8 prime however. If he is 6'5 that may explain why they look the same esp if Kobe is as high 195flat because it'd be 1/4 diff

@Canson

I agree, but you shouldn't fall on the same trap. Sometimes there are better pics, and if the pic is not that good a detailed explanation of it and how it just shows a general panorama or comparison is good.
Canson said on 19/Jul/16
@Height: let's be honest here. The pics people post site wide are not that great and none of the all star pics are that great either. However the pics are always "horrendous" when someone is explaining why someone "isn't as tall as everyone wants to make them" and you know that is true. Look at some of the garbage posted on Barkley's page. Two people (I won't mention names) posted a pic of him with Magic and on Saturday night live where there is no way you'd be able to tell a difference unless they are maybe 5-7" apart in height. But when the pic is to make someone taller the pic is deemed "conclusive" that's what is frustrating is that most people want to inflate heights here. I know in your case you at least make valid points and have been relatively balanced for the most part but you do understand what I'm saying as well? Right?
Canson said on 19/Jul/16
@Height: he's not 200 flat. I said 200 range. 200.66 is 6'7" that's about what Pippen has always been. And yes I agree that he and Magic are close in height. But my opinion (you stated it yourself) that magic is 6'7.25 or was prime. So you're correct no significant difference. I can look at other pics of penny and Jordan and Penny looks physically taller and longer and that says a lot especially as long as Jordan already is. So 1.5-1.75" is possible and I wouldn't take what Phil said too seriously. He's called Rodman 6'8 before and Porzangis 7'3" and has exaggerated other heights before. That article was "reverse" psychology that he listed himself 2" shorter it said but in reality he used his barefoot height of 6'7 and not his shoes. Pippen is more than likely 6'8 in shoes

Height said on 18/Jul/16
@ Canson

Again I don't mean to pick on the pictures you post, but that all star team pic is no different than the capture I mede from the 95 team. We can't conclude from that pic that Pippen is just 200 cm or that Hill is taller than him. Or that MJ is 1.75 inches shorter than Penny, especially after checking below that MJ's feet have a wider stance than Penny's.

Pippen doesn't even look as short as a flat 201 cm guy from what I've seen from him in over 17 years. If you carefully watch footage from him guarding Magic you will see he can sometimes appear taller than Magic. My guess is that there is no significant difference between the two of them. Even Phil Jackson has referred to him as 6'9"on the court (most probably referring to his height with shoes).

Anyway back on topic with Durant.
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Height: also from the pic I posted, Miller is about 1/4" shorter than Penny. Miller practically is a legit 6'6 (I don't think he falls below 6'5 3/4 but I def see him sub 6'6 at night). I don't think Penny falls below 6'6. Penny looks 1.5-1.75" taller than Jordan in the pic. So yea MJ would measure 6'4.75 earlier and likely fall to 6'4.5ish at night. So yea he'd measure 6'5 as well in the morning. My point is he isn't a guy (neither is Kobe) who Sustain that. They are weak 6'5s
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Height: Pippen and Jordan both "appear" taller than contemporaries. And that's their length that makes it appear that way. I honesty don't believe MJ is any taller than Stackhouse or Nick Anderson at least nothing that is noticeable. Of course could be 1/8" or 1/4" but truthfully we cannot see that. In my opinion Magic looks taller than Pippen does in the pics together maybe by 1/2" or they appear similar in height
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@Shane: I agree with everything you said. Kerr may have been 6'2 in his prime. He had some back issues (surgery as well) of late
Shane said on 16/Jul/16
Kerr absolutely under 6'2" barefoot... I think Pippen likely a legit or very near 6'7" barefoot in am but might drop to 6'6" 3/8.. I think Durant can go as low as 6'9" but seems taller due to everyone else in NBA using shoe heights and his long, lean build.
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
@Height: you made a very good point about pics however. It's likely why opinions from across the board on this site are skewered. For example Someone posted a pic of Barkley with a supposed 6'7" guy when in reality it's skewed in favor of Barkley. And many others like that. People have problems with the pics people post (in my opinion) if they are making someone shorter but when they make someone taller they are all of a sudden "top notch" holy grail. In reality 90% of these pics on this site are inconclusive. First hand encounters are always the best esp with people close in height to someone like Pippen Jordan Barkley Durant Lebron etc. also the words of teammates in my opinion carries more weight than most of the pics
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
@Height:

This pic is of them at the all star game in 1996. Hill looks taller than Pippen even with no hair (Pippen has a flat top). It's not much diff but I'd put Grant at 201-202 and Pippen at 6'7 flat max. I've seen pics with he and Penny. Penny was in the books as measuring 6'6 flat but you could be right that he's 6'6.25 (it's odd the NBA wouldn't round up because that's unheard of) but in that case Pippen only has about 1/2" on Penny. Benefit of the doubt is 3/4. With that id put Scottie right in the 200 range. He never looked a lot taller than Rodman to be honest. Maybe a full centimeter. Maybe 1/2"

Click Here
Height said on 15/Jul/16
@Canson

If anything, Magic and Pippen are the same height. On the court Scottie has never seemed noticeable shorter than Magic, always the same or a tad taller.
Dawkins said on 15/Jul/16
210 cm out of bed, 208 cm at night.
Canson said on 14/Jul/16
@Height: I'd go more with 201.2-.5 for Magic and 200.7 for Pippen. I wouldn't put Scottie anything over a solid 6'7 honestly.
Height said on 13/Jul/16
@Canson

It depends on the pictures you have seen. He can appear shorter if the angle doesn't favor him. Many times it's just a matter of who is closer to the camera.

For example, I know for a fact that Grant Hill isn't any shorter than 200 cm. But If see this picture and compare him to Larry Johnson he looks 197.5cm / 198 cm:

Click Here


So maybe the pics you seen next to Hill or Hardaway or even Rodman, don't favor Pippen. He is for sure taller (not by much, 1 cm -1.5 cm) than Hill who is more a 200 cm - 200.7 cm guy at his lowest that I can tell you for sure.
Canson said on 12/Jul/16
@Height: LJ looked similar to Butler but I can't tell 1/4" except from a reflection or eye level being lower. But when I saw LJ he looked somewhere in the range 196.25-196.85. Yea he'd prob be close to Thunder Dan. I've seen others class him as 6'5 as well so him falling below 1/2" isn't unfathomable. Pippen wasn't taller than Magic was. Magic always looked taller than him sometimes by 1/2". I've seen people class Pippen as "6'7" in shoes to be honest. More than one as a matter of fact. Now I doubt he'd be a solid 6'6 but I can see 6'7 in shoes meaning he's 6'7.5 range (of course that's at his lowest) and in a Low sneaker he'd be 6'6.75 still. He looks a legit 6'7 (201) imho and sometimes he can look only about as tall as Penny hardaway does and shorter than Grant Hill (a true 201-202 guy). Pippen in all reality wasn't that much taller than worm. I've even seen pics with them the same or Rodman taller looking
Canson said on 11/Jul/16
He looks taller than a prime Larry Bird. They're similar players too
Height said on 11/Jul/16
@ Canson

I think Howard is 6'9", maybe 6'9.25" at most. Larry Johnson has always seemed a legit 6'5.5" guy to me (same height as Dan Majerle), while Pippen has always been about 3 cm taller than Rodman, and has always seemingly been at least a tad taller than Magic. I have Pippen at 202 cm and Magic at 201.5cm
ly said on 11/Jul/16
Rob i think time has come that you give him at least a 6ft9.5 listing
Canson said on 10/Jul/16
@Height: your estimate may be right. He has approx 3.5" on Melo. I'd go with Rampage's estimate at the lowest 207 cm

@JTM: Kerr isn't 6'3" barefoot. I highly doubt. Prob 6'2" and 6'3 in shoes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jul/16
Somewhere between 6ft9-10 range is likely. Could be a solid 207cm. At least he's honest about his height in shoes. I reckon he'd be around 6ft11 in sneakers if he is closer to 6ft10.
jtm said on 9/Jul/16
if he's 6'9 then Steve Kerr is much closer to 6'0 than 6'3.
JJ said on 8/Jul/16
Durant with claimed 6'3" Steve Kerr and 6'7" Warriors GM Bob Myers. Can't see footwear but assuming all are in similar dress shoes, KD looks near 6'10" here. Myers has hair advantage so I would put top of his head at Durant's brow ridge. Kevin has a small head for his frame but still larger than the average man, so 3 inches above Myers seems seems like a safe bet.

Deandre Jordan: 6'9.75

Yeah solid to strong 6'9"
Canson said on 6/Jul/16
I agree with Height on this one. He looks while still 6'9 range for sure, closer to 6'10. I'd say he's prob what Bill Russell was in his prime 6'9.5-.7. They did say once that he "asked" to be listed at 6'9 on the thunder roster but likely saying he didn't want his shoe measurement. And that's likely his lowest. And that was when he compared his height (quite recently) to Chris Paul's but he looks generally the mid 207 range to most. I can see Boogie as only a flat "at most" 6'9 primarily because he was measured when everything was then done in the morning (2010 draft) after Blake and Steph curry were drafted (2009, which was when they began the morning measurements) and was one of the bigger names. he was only 19 or 20 but not far fetched he could've grown but doubtful with KD and DJ who is 6'9.75 himself. for a guy who is already undersized for a center even if boogie were legitimately 6'10 or 6'9.5 he'd def be an early measurement of the earlies. On a SN, It was hilarious that boogie told him not to stand next to him because ppl will think he's only 6'7 lol.
J.Lee said on 6/Jul/16
Rob, do you think he's only 6 ft 9.25? Everyone always says he's much taller than that. People even say he's 7 foot tall. He is taller than other NBA players who list themselves at 6 foot 11.
Editor Rob: 6ft 10 is arguable for him.
Rifle said on 5/Jul/16
No less than 6'9.5" without a doubt.
Canson said on 4/Jul/16
@D1athlete: I think he grew a hair. Cousins is probably only a flat 6'9 (likely a morning measurement whereas I think Durant definitely got an afternoon measurement). I mean I can't see KD under 6'9 at any point. He may be 6'9.5 tho
Height said on 4/Jul/16
Cousins is 6'9.5". Like Rob said, the angle slightly favors KD, only slightly (see the link from D1Athlete's post).

Like Rampage(-_-_-)Clover and DRE, I've always believed he is closer to 208 cm barefoot than to 206 cm, and the very least for him is 6'9.75"

This is another case of the "NBA Basketball generalists" eye in my opinion. Even if he is 208 cm on the dot, that still gives him and other NBA experts sense to claim that he is 6'9", because 208 cm flat is still inside 6'9" (exactly 6'9.88"). This is also the reason why others call him and see him at least as 6'10"... another example of how the majority of minds in the business (including himself) are ignoring the subtle differences inside a height range.

P.S. Metric system for the win!
D1Athlete said on 4/Jul/16
Rob, Cousins was measured st 6"9.5 barefoot at the combine so Durant would be at least 6"10 barefoot..don't you think it's time for an upgrade?
Canson said on 2/Jul/16
Did anyone see the pic for the Olympic team where he was right next to Boogie? I'm honesty beginning to wonder is KD 6'10 or is Boogie under 6'9? While Durant can look taller than his listed height he doesn't look that much tallee
D1Athlete said on 29/Jun/16
@Rob Cousins(to the right of Durant) was listed at 6"9.5 barefoot at the combine. Isn't it time to give Durant an upgrade? At least 6"10 barefoot..w/o a doubt

Editor Rob: the angle might help him, but he seemed to mention 6ft 9 a couple of times on twitter, of course he threw in 6ft 7 as well, so maybe he liked to mix things up.
Animus said on 27/Jun/16
Rob, if players are listed with their in-shoes height, what would you list Kevin Durant at? Obviously at least 6'10", but what about 6'11"?
Editor Rob: he may well measure closer to 6ft 11 in a decent basketball sneaker.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jun/16
Weak 6ft10 is possible.
GP said on 20/May/16
KD is nothing more that this listing. His proportions make him look taller. Long legs, incredibly long arms, no neck. Ibaka was measured at 6'10.25" before NBA at some euro camp. They are both 206cm
Jovany said on 19/May/16
Yeah Kevin is 6'9.25" barefoot! With shoes on, he is 6'10.25". Trust me! Serge Ibaka is really 6'9" or 6'9.5", not legit 6'10". Thats why Kevin Durant is a bit taller than him

Ozzy said on 30/Nov/15
Agree, no photo is ideal, but these are the best I've come across. From what I can see only Parker, Paul and Wall are clearly closer than the rest, and judging from what I can see of the feet of the relevant players. Another point being that Howard doesn't look to have grown much since measuring 6'9'' at the combine, maybe 0.25"? Unfortunately the notion that KD (and even Howard) is a "seven footer" has gained foothold in the media. "Don't believe the listing" is uttered at least once each Thunder game ... Same with 7'3" Porzingis. The Knicks measured him at 7'1.25" w/o shoes and 7'2.5" with shoes leading to the 7'3" official listing. Lillard measured at 6'1.75" at the combine (22 years old). Still, I've become suspicious of the pre-draft measurements after seeing Bosh and Noah next to each other.
Duhon said on 27/Nov/15
Those All-Star line-up shots are pretty good for comparing the heights of different player, the only thing though is that if a player is standing slightly closer or farther back compared to others that does impact how tall they appear on those shots. Some players seem to stand a little further back than others at time.

The strangest thing in this photo is Damian Lillard next to Chris Paul and compared to Tony Parker, although TP is on the left side of the photo.

Paul (6'0''?) and Parker (6'1.25''?) are obviously closer to the camera but still, Lillard certainly seems under 6'2''.

And Davis seems quite strange in that photo! His head makes him look like a character from The Men In Black films :P

Kevin Durant is clearly taller than Anthony Davis who is a legit 6"9.25 ( look at the USA 2012 basketball picture) and also has more than 2 inches on lebron james (who is listed at 6"7.25 on this site). Durant looks similar to lamarcus aldrige and chris bosh who are both 6"10.25 barefoot(use google image search), the duo does not appear to have a inch on Durant...... Growing after eighteen is not impossible, Kevin durant is more in the 6"9.75-6"10 flat range.. You should check this out

I think it's Kevin Durant's very slim build that gives the impression of him being taller, maybe that's why the commentators often say they think he's about 6'11". It's possible the NBA's listing of 240lbs (109kg) is more than he actually weighs.

Even by basketball standards, this guy has a strange build. Like, he's that one kid in high school who grew really tall so they made him center on the team, and he eventually fills out, except that Durant - who has been in the league since 2007 - hasn't filled in. There is no way the 240lb number is accurate for this guy.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Apr/15
Do the NBA actually do half listings? I almost always see it rounded to a full inch I think, so if he really measured this and perhaps 6'10.5 in sneakers they'd usually round up to 6'11? All I know is that a lot of players are listed at roughly 1.25-1.5 inches taller than their barefoot height. A 6'7 listed basketball player is usually in 6'5.5-6'6 range from what I've seen.

I think he's 6ft9.5-6ft10 he is noticeably taller then Lebron and sources outside of the NBA say 6ft10 .The nba at times claim 6ft11!

Rob,Generally despite the official barefoot listings we can argue that the guys are 1-2 cms shorter because measurements are performed in the morning.Durant could be the exception,but is he really taller than his listing?unless he was measured after a game,which I doubt then 6'9 flat is fairer.6'10 with 1" shoe.
[Editor Rob: from looking at him, I think he can pull off being over 6ft 9 at times, so a strong 6ft 9 range I think is better.]

To clear up the 6'7" joke/comment Durant is often accused of being taller than his 6'9" NBA height listing, with many people thinking he's more like 6'11". The 6'7" statement was to sort of jokingly flip that belief.

Good listing. He always looked taller than a flat 6'9" to me.

@Arch: He'd probably clear 6ft10 when he wakes up

You'd think looking at the above photo he was more 6'6 range but you can see here he'd have to be near this. He looks like he has stilts/artificial steel pythons for legs. Click Here Nothing on Jabbar of course but still

Often a guy this height barefoot is listed at 6'10.5 even 6'11 by the NBA.

With the name, he's far too easy to confuse with the Canadian actor Kevin Durand LOL, I think Durant is much more famous though, generally!

Rob, what kind of joke was saying he's 6'7? Anyway, how much difference you see in this picture? Click Here
[Editor Rob: maybe if you get asked the question a lot, sometimes you come out with a low value? I've no idea...

With the grey haired guy he looks maybe nearly 2.5 inches under his chin, so a bit more than a foot difference is possible.]

Odd but he's listed at 6 ft 9 isn't he? Taller than listing? That's rare. Based on 6 ft 9 listing you'd expect a similar height to Bjornsson and a whisker under 6'8!
[Editor Rob: I can believe his 6ft 10 shoe claim, but I think he can look over 6ft 9 aswell.]
