How tall is Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant's Height

6ft 9 ½ (207 cm)

American basketball player. On twitter he joked he was 6'7" but in the past said "6'10 with shoes" and "Im not 7 feet lol I'm 6 11 on a good day" and even said "I was recorded at 6'10" and three-quarters with no shoes, so with my shoes on I'm 7-feet. I just like messin' with people. They just ask me so much..."

@Viper: absolute highest he is is what Rob lists him above
viper said on 8/Aug/19
The average vote is an inch too high.

He's got the ultimate frame to look taller
Nik Ashton said on 7/Aug/19
His height claims are so varied! He’s 6’9.5”, no messin’!
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
@Junior: I totally agree 6’9-6’9.5 is possible for KD. KG I doubt is that much over 6’11”. I guess that’s possible but 6’11” flat is too. He is noticeably shorter than shaq. As for Webber 205 is possible but I’d say a bit weaker. 204-205. See him with an aged Magic and that’s 1.5”. Webber didn’t have 3” on Jalen Rose who was 6’6”. Sotoris posted a pic of them just a couple days ago and it’s 1.5” with magic johnson and C Webb. Not to mention Mo Cheeks said that Webber was 6’8-6’9
GreyV said on 6/Aug/19
Funny how KD is one of the very few who didn't lie about his height, but everybody else in the league and the media made him taller than he actually is. He's a legit 206cm, maybe 207cm guy. I can buy 6'10" on shoes, but I hate that sort of measurement, since it shouldn't matter how tall you are in shoes.

My guess:
min. 6'9"
max. 6'9.75"

Now is it possible that he had already lost a bit of height at the Draft Combine, making him a 6'10" out of bed? 'Cause these guys lose a lot more during the day, and I can't see him lower than 6'9".
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Aug/19
@Canson But more chance is that KD is somewhere 6'9 1/4-3/8 zone not under it and KG a solid 6'11 1/8. I'm not sure about Chris Webber but he look 205cm range to me.
Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Junior: exactly. And that’s all commentators. Hubie Brown and even Chris Webber who is usually honest about height did it. Webber claimed 6’9.5 (that’s a shoe height for him) and said Durant would probably be at least 3” taller than he is. He’s probably never even stood with him and Webber has said before he’s 6’9” and people who’ve met him that I’ve heard say 6’8/6’9. Spencer Haywood was one of them saying he wasn’t as tall as he expected. Webber stood next to garnett when they played and he was towered. He was also noticeably shorter than 6’9.75 (at best) Rasheed Wallace. Wallace was also noticeably shorter than Garnett. 7’0” is ridiculous let alone 7’1”. 6’11” at least he claimed but that’s in shoes rounded up. He probably did that to make what he’s done sound better same way Barkley would claim his barefoot height and round down from 6’4 5/8 or 6’4 1/2 to 6’4” at times
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Jul/19
@Canson That 7'1 call out is delusional Lol. KG is 6'11 and had KD by near 2".
Canson said on 30/Jul/19
6’9.5 is absolute max but 6’9.25 where he was listed was ok
Canson said on 20/Jul/19
A lot of people took his claim of 6’11 or 6’10.75 seriously and now want him to be that height. Especially commentators. I even heard Nick Wright call KD 7’1”
Canson said on 17/Jul/19
A 6’1.5 Curry would make Durant no more than 6’9 or a hair over. He isn’t 6’10. And curry got measured early morning so he isn’t over 6’1.5ish
Son Goku said on 12/Jul/19
Easy 6'9 and half KD is.
Canson said on 9/Jul/19
6’10 maybe 6’10.25 max out of bed, 6’9.25 at a low. 6’9.5 maybe earlier in the day to get his 6’10.75 in shoes
Canson said on 8/Jul/19
@Viper: I think a shoe measurement earlier in the day. He also says CP is 6’0” and everyone knows he’s not 6’0” barefoot. He’s max 5’11
viper said on 7/Jul/19
He says he was measured 6-10.75 barefoot.

A dubious measurement?
viper said on 7/Jul/19
I just measured 6-3.75 straight out of bed. I mean I felt much taller than usual. I was in bed the whole day.

So I could maybe measure that at the NBA combine? They basically walk right out of their hotel room.
Canson said on 6/Jul/19
He’s shorter than DeAndre Jordan and within 1/2” of 6’9 Demarcus cousins. He’s not 6’9.75. He measured 6’9” at the combine and likely an afternoon measurement whereas Cousins was morning. If he’s grown it’s less than 1/2”
Onabill said on 5/Jul/19
Can’t seen any higher than 6 ft 10 with out shoes and can’t see any Lower than 6 ft 9 1/2, tbh I think KD is 6 ft 9 3/4 w/o shoes and 6 ft 11 - 11 1/2 (Some Athletes wear comfort lifts which gives 1/2 inch)
Canson said on 20/Jun/19
@Viper: agreed
Y07 said on 15/Jun/19
@Wolfsbane Kevin was a 19 year old kid at the time. So it is possible he could grow a fraction more since then. I know a majority of people stop growing around 17-18. But quite a few can grow a fraction or even more after 18 years of age.
Spencer Dobkin said on 14/Jun/19
6'9.75"
viper said on 12/Jun/19
They screwed up big time clearing him to play imo
Canson said on 11/Jun/19
Tough break for him last night
Canson said on 3/Jun/19
@Wolfsbane: agreed. He may have grown a hair but I doubt he’s outside of 6’9” range. Maybe max 6’9.5 but I think it’s because people speak different languages. So a person talking in shoes Durant would be 6’10” range just as Russell Westbrook calls Durant 6’10” and himself 6’3”. Russ is 6’2.25 max like he was when drafted so Durant may be 6’9.25 perhaps
Wolfsbane said on 31/May/19
@ Canson: I think what I wrote was quite clear but just to clarify - Kevin Durant's true height WITHOUT shoes would be 6'9" unless he has grown since the Draft Combine 2007/08.

His height WITH shoes (his NBA height) would be between 6'10.25" and 6'11".

There has been some confusion as to his NBA height which usually go by height with shoes so hopefully this clarifies his height for both with and without shoes.
Canson said on 27/May/19
@Wolfsbane: are you saying he would be listed at that in the NBA or would be that in shoes? The would be part is unclear because none of that changes what he actually is 6’9” range
Wolfsbane said on 25/May/19
He measured 6'9" without shoes and 6'10.25" with shoes at the Draft Combine 2007/08.

NBA heights are widely measured with shoes. Many players add 2 inches between no shoes and with shoes so Kevin Durant's height would be between 6'10.25" and 6'11" with shoes depending on the shoes he is wearing.

I agree with Erik C: 6’9-6’9.5 is fine for Durant
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/May/19
But from this picture i posted you could see the top line of her black colour head band would just represent her height and she still don't look less than 6.25" shorter than Durant, even my wife take a look and ask me how tall is Durant and i say 6'9 1/2 and she could tell me this girl (Lexie Majors) is no way over 6'3.25" from the picture and other IG photo with her 6'0 husband she look a strong 6'3 from similar footwear comparison. I'm curious where do her 6'6 measurement came? It doesn't make sense that she was listed 6'6 during her college days Click Here
Erik C. said on 7/May/19
I can see Kevin Durant being anywhere within the 6'9"-6'10" range. But i woud likely go towards 6'9.25- 6'9.5" range. So i believe rob has him spot on.


@Rob

Have you ever considered a page for Javale Mcgee or Brandon Ingram? I think they would make interesting discussions.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/May/19
Rob, Click Here this girl claim to be 6'6-6'7 and now you see her next to Durant would you think she struggle to reach James Harden?
Editor Rob
That seems a hard height to believe barefoot, just glancing at her page with other folk.
Canson said on 29/Apr/19
@Viper: I wonder how tall Favors is. I would say strong 6’8 based on where he measured in the morning
viper said on 24/Apr/19
Derrick Favors looks similar wearing 15 and he was measured 6-8.75
Canson said on 22/Apr/19
6’10” out of bed is believable but not at a low
Nyjuan said on 22/Apr/19
6'10 out of bed easily.
Canson said on 20/Apr/19
@Viper: strongly agreed. Shouldn’t expect anything less than that though. A lot of people want Lebron to be 6’8” or Jordan 6’6” etc. it’s funny that people “grow” since the pre draft anytime that another person who was accurately measured makes someone look shorter than their combine listing. It’s never that the other person really isn’t as tall as they are listed
Canson said on 20/Apr/19
@Viper: strongly agreed
viper said on 18/Apr/19
He easily looks 2 inches shorter than
6-11 Bogut.

Amazing how many people want him taller than his listed height
Canson said on 15/Apr/19
He 6’9” range not 6’10
James Grossman said on 29/Mar/19
6'10.5" no more. 6'10.25" would be the lowest. He edges out every single person who claims 6'10," and some who claim 6'11"
Canson said on 1/Mar/19
@Junior:that’s exactly where I have Davis as of today 6’9.75. His 6’9.25 was a morning height when he was drafted and he grew an inch. 6’9.75 makes him 6’11” in b-ball shoes. Cousins 6’9” flat. Durant May edge him but not by anything noticeable. Both have 4” on 6’5 Draymond Green
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 1/Mar/19
@Canson Davis look at least 3/4 inch on Demarcus. Durant and Demarcus most of the time look about the same height couldn't really tell much whose taller.
Canson said on 27/Feb/19
@Junior: maybe 1/4”. Durant 6’9.25 Cousins 6’9” flat. Davis was taller than Cousins too
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Feb/19
I don't think Durant noticeable taller than Demarcus Cousins. At most KD a fraction on DC. Click Here Demarcus look taller but KD a little further from camera.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Ellis: today Giannis
Ellis said on 17/Feb/19
Who do you guys think is taller Giannis or KD? I think they are both very close in height.
Canson said on 3/Feb/19
I’ve also spoken with people who’ve seen him in person in the DC area and he’s 6’10 range in shoes 6’9” range barefoot. If we see him with Draymond Green who’s 6’6 range in shoes 6’5 barefoot he’s only 4-4.5” taller tops
Bryant G said on 31/Jan/19
I was at a cookout with durant years ago. Stood around him for hours. I'm a smidge over 6'0 with shoes on.

I've never felt so short in my life. 2 of my friends who were with me are both 6'3 with shoes and also looked laughably short.

He also has horrible posture.. He's easily 7'0 in shoes.

Literally Google KD with anybody else in the league listed as 6'11 or 7'0... KD always looks the same height or taller.
Canson said on 26/Jan/19
@Junior: I wouldn’t go that far. It’s very possible he can dip to 6’9 especially after a game. But the latter would constitute an extreme low. 6’9.25 is reasonable imho
Canson said on 12/Jan/19
@Viper: correct they would not. People say that all the time about him but he’s an honest guy in an inflator’s market. If he’s over 6’9” it’s a fraction not an inch or two and prob not even Half if we go by lows like for you being 6’2.75ish and me being 6’4.25ish
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Jan/19
@Rising - 174 cm Some picture Durant stand a little hunch and loose with Harden. Anything from 6'9 1/4-6'9 1/2 is still possible for him. Flat 6'9 its hard to happen for KD.
viper said on 10/Jan/19
The NBA wouldn't underlist a guy by 2 inches.
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
@Rob: what happened to Trevor’s comment?
Editor Rob
They weren't serious comments.
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
His pre draft is 6’9” so he obviously isn’t 6’11”. Durant isn’t 5” taller than Melo or 4” taller than Lebron.
Canson said on 8/Jan/19
@TrevorM: if he’s 6’7” it means that Lebron is only 6’5 or possibly a hair under. I’ve met Melo in person and he looked at worst a very legit 6’6”. Look at KD with Melo and he’s surely not 6’7”. Melo is also shorter than Lebron
Canson-6'4 3/8 said on 25/Dec/18
@Rising: I’d lean toward weak 6’10” for Giannis today. Duhon is right he is taller than Durant today. He looks taller with Kobe. Giannis looks 6’10”ish with him imho. As for the others

Durant imho is maybe a hair over 6’9” at a low. The 6’9.25 was probably a better look. He would easily be 6’10 out of bed though. I would say Curry is 6’1.5 judging how he stacks up to Draymond and being that he was in the same class as Blake and they were all measured early morning. Curry looks shorter than Westbrook who I do believe would be 6’2.25 like measured. I also have Harden at his low at 6’3.5 max. He doesn’t look as tall as most 6’4” range guys
Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Dec/18
Durant doesn't look more than 5" taller than Harden to me. Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Durant was 2 in those photos and this one seems to have been right before his 24th birthday: Click Here

@Canson: They look the same height there, imo, but interestingly, Durant looks much taller than usual with both, though only 7" taller than Steph Curry so maybe that photo favors right to left.

@Duhon: I wondered about Giannis. I'd guess 6'11" Garnett about 4-5 cm taller there, but does Giannis really have an inch longer head than Garnett? Garnett's head does seem kind of small to me for a near 7 footer, but is it under 10"? Kobe does have a small head for a 6'5" guy at 9"-9.5" range, but still Giannis' head is disproportionately large with him so the difference is smaller than it looks there. Though he honestly looks at least 4" taller than Middleton in those photos and maybe 1.5" shorter than 6'11.25" Brook Lopez so he's definitely grown.

I don't think Giannis attended the pre-draft camp, but Canson is pretty much right: "When we first drafted Giannis, we measured him at 6-foot-8½," Bucks GM John Hammond says. Click Here Supposedly 7'3" wingspan. ESPN says he grew 2.5" the rest of the season to 6'11", but more noteworthy is that Hammond says the Bucks measured Giannis 6'8.5" when they drafted him. This quote is more believable from the end of the 2014 season "Measured at 6 feet, 9 1/2 inches without shoes on Thursday, Antetokounmpo is going to have to add strength in order to continue to improve." Click Here This is also interesting: “I am now 6-10 and one quarter,” Antetokounmpo said smiling.' Click Here Of course, that last article is mentioning only shoe heights for Durant and George without specifying that so it's confusing. I assume the 6'9" when drafted was a round up of the 6'8.5" the Bucks measured him, but was Giannis claiming 6'10.25" without or with shoes? I'd think with considering the supposed 6'9.5" measurement without shoes at the end of the 2014 season. I can buy 6'9.5" without shoes and a full inch growth is quite rare after being drafted. I could believe taller next to Middleton, but not as much with Lopez and especially Garnett.
miller said on 24/Dec/18
Joe i think he is 6.10 and slightly taller than 6.9 1/2 Kevin Durant
Canson said on 24/Dec/18
@Joe and Miller: if we are talking about Celebheights terms, Middleton would be 6’6-6’6.5 as the combine is early morning. But Giannis is leaning his head. I could buy up to 6’10” maybe 6’9.5-6’10 but no higher than that. He also looked 5” taller than Kobe who is 6’4.75
joe### said on 23/Dec/18
miller
What is your guess for the height of giannis?
Duhon said on 23/Dec/18
Giannis with 6'11.25" Kevin Garnett Click Here

Giannis would definitely measure above KD now and is one of the few players who has grown since his draft.
joe### said on 23/Dec/18
Khris was probably measured in the morning which means he's 6'6.25, I remeber jimmy butler was measured 6'6 but it's looking 6'5.25, in the case of giannis I think he looks 6'9.5 - 6'10

Giannis was measured at 6’8.75 at the pre draft so he is slightly shorter than Durant

bruh look at his vs ginanis antkeulmpo or whatever... hes literally taller then him and ginanis is said to be 6 foot 11.... he been looking taller then centers giannis tho man add ginanis to this site

Canson said on 17/Dec/18
@Junior and Miller: I would say 6’9-6’9.5 for Durant. Probably middle of the range.

Klay 196-197 probably middle ish
Draymond 6’5 flat

Early morning 6’5.75 for Klay should get him around 6’5.25/6’5.375. Best case maybe 6’5.5. They take place less than an hour after waking
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Rising: what do you make of this pic? It appears Dray is taller but wonder if it’s maybe camera as Klay looks unusually short

Click Here
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Dec/18
@Jackson Maybe true. But Durant must be at least 6'9 and 1/4 barefoot for his lowest in the day.
miller said on 16/Dec/18
Durant 6.9 1/2
Thompson 6.5 3/4
Green 6.5 1/4
Jackson said on 15/Dec/18
99% of NBA players are way over listed. They get listed at their height in shoes and sometimes even taller than their height in shoee. Kevin is the rare opposite. He could easily easily easily be listed at 6’10” or 6’11”
Canson said on 13/Dec/18
@Rising: I see some pics where it looks more than 4” with Durant and Draymond but usually not much over

Canson said on 13/Dec/18
@Rising: only thing with the timing is that they’re all measured around the same time. Now with Green I can see him laying down for his or being one of the first. Or padded socks maybe. Now Klay I could see being a guy who is an hour out of bed perhaps and I think he would wake up at least 6’6”. I tried to compare both to Andre Iguodala and to Shaun Livingston. Iggy is hard to gauge too. Sometimes he looks 6’5 other times can look his draft measurement or near it (6’5.5). Livingston looks 6’6” range though

@Tall Greek Boy: to be honest Durant has looked up to 4” taller than Melo in a pic or two due to angle. I highly doubt it’s just 6cm between them. Melo is likely 198-199 anywhere in that range but Durant has to be no less than 206. he’s 206-207 to be honest. It’s around a 3” diff. Allen Iverson is likely 179. His own coach said 5’10/5’11 (Larry Brown who is of similar height with him) only couple inches shorter.

Durant is no more than 204cm . Has about 23 to 24cm on 180cm Iverson. Doesn’t have more than 6cm on Carmelo Anthony. Durant is gigantic but he’s not a full 6ft9.
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Dec/18
@Canson: I'd guess Thompson about half an inch taller from what I've seen, but sometimes it's hard to see any difference. Also, Thompson doesn't look more than maybe 3.5" shorter than Durant while Green looks closer to 4" shorter, imo. So my guess is Thompson's 6'5.75" measurement wasn't that early while Green may be another case like Blake Griffin. I have to look at Curry more.
Canson said on 10/Dec/18
@Rising: I’m gonna go out on a limb and say Durant is slightly over 6’9”. I’ve kinda suspected it for a while. Maybe not quite 6’9.5 but that is very possible. However, 6’9.25 like Rob had him previously looks pretty good imho. I’ve noticed with Demarcus Cousins that he looks maybe a cm taller. I believe Cousins to be 6’9” flat at his low. I would say Klay 6’5 3/8 maybe Draymond 6’5” flat Curry 6’1.5
Canson said on 10/Dec/18
@Rising: how much do you estimate with Green and Thompson? I’ve seen times when similar and others where there is a difference. I believe both measured early but that Thompson is probably a fraction taller. Thompson looks to be standing better than Green though. I did see Steve Kerr call Green 6’5 and saw Alvin Gentry day he’s closer to 6’5 than 6’6”. Based on how they look, I would go with (max 6’5.5) maybe 196.5 for Klay and 6’5 for Draymond
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Dec/18
It's annoying how much most around the NBA and most fans exaggerate Durant's height. Here he is with Dirk: Click Here That was during Durant's 4th season when he was 22 and a 6'11" Dirk would mean Durant looks no more than 6'9".

Klay Thompson and Draymond Green were both supposed to have measured 6'5.75", though Thompson looks a bit taller. Click Here Click Here Click Here Durant looks pretty much 6'9" compared to Thompson's measurement, maybe a fraction over. He does look at least Rob's listing compared to Green, but it's probably more likely Green was measured early. Either way, I don't see much evidence he's even a full 6'10", much less 6'10.75" like he claimed.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Dec/18
It's weir that nowadays Durant start to claim 6'8 joke while he was like 6'9 1/4 low.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Jdubbz: Tall Greek Boy is new herr apparently. He’s underestimated quite a few maybe because he’s not certain
Jdubbz said on 28/Nov/18
@Tallgreekboy Durant is nowhere near 203 or 204. 6'8 range is absolutely ridiculous for him.
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Junior: that and the fact that Blake is not anything close to his pre draft at a low without the thick hair. There was concern that he would measure as low as 6’6” when he was drafted in fact. He’s sub 6’8” next to Deandre Jordan. It wouldn’t surprise me if he were something like 6’8.25-.5 (with help from his hair) and it’s been documented that it was minutes after he woke up. Griffin looks 6’7.5-.75 with Deandre Jordan and looks really no taller in the commercial with Kevin Love. Love looks more 6’7” than 6’8 in pics ( 6’7.25).
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Nov/18
@Jackson If the standing position switch them both we'll going to say near 6'10 for Griffin. Camera tricks my friend.
Jackson said on 22/Nov/18
KD looks at least 6’10” here with Blake Griffin

Durant is minimum 6’9” barefoot not 203 or 204

Durant isnt above 203.5cm to 204cm after looking at pictures of him. Extremely tall still though.
Canson said on 3/Nov/18
The listed height is the most I’d give him. Perhaps the previous listing fit better 6’9.25

Kevin is closer to 6'10" to be honest.

I really think he's closer to 6'10 than 6'9... he slouches a lot on the court, but still outsizes just about everyone, outside of true 7+ footers.

@Christian and Duhon: my guess is this Ty Chandler is 6’11” at a normal low (afternoon). Durant may not be as low as a flat 6’9” but could be something like 6’9.25 or so

Tyson Chandler look 2" higher than Durant on the court. Chandler prob wasn't much over 6'11 and Durant i can believe holding a strong 6'9 1/4.
Canson said on 16/Sep/18
@Duhon: Chandler is leaning in a bit in that pic. But you make a good point. KD is an odd case. At times he does look taller than 6’9”. He looked 6’9” with Greg Oden but not sure if he hasn’t grown since then
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Sep/18
@Duhon

But is Tyson 6'11.5" at his low though?
Duhon said on 13/Sep/18
@Canson Durant seems to be somewhat slumped leaning on a wall with one foot not even on the ground in that pic with AI. Durant is looking well above 6'9" here next to 6'11.5" Tyson Chandler Click Here
Canson said on 12/Sep/18
Larry brown said Allen Iverson was only 5’10/5’11. No way Durant is over 6’9” with him here

Canson said on 9/Sep/18
@Cycklops: he could still be a solid 6’9”. Thing is that people make him taller to make his accomplishments that much better as a scorer. Just like people accuse Barkley of downplaying his height when he does not in reality. He rounds down from about 6’4.5 to 6’4 (not sure if he is actually not closer to 6’4 in reality at a low). But to the Cousins comparison, Cousins is probably only 6’9” flat at a low too. His 6’9.5 was in the early morning when the president draft occurs.

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Aug/18
@Cycklops Agree what you're saying. Maybe he really is 6'9.5" and 6'10.75" with shoes and Dwight Howard might have grown a 1/2 too. One thing not sure if is their lowest height of the day.
Cycklops said on 20/Aug/18
One of the most annoying topics. He was measured predraft in 2007 in his socks at 6'9" even. He later claimed in an interview he was measured at 6'10.75". The NBA lists him at 6'9". He's listed here at 6'9.5". In 2009 he was dead-even in height on the sophomore All-Star team with 6'9" measured Dwight Howard. In 2016 he was dead-even with 6'9.5" DeMarcus Cousins.

As annoying as it is to go with the site's listing, I will agree that he was drafted at 6'9" (6'10.25" in socks) and is now 6'9.5", or 6'10.75" in shoes.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Aug/18
@Jrbowe42 Not over 2.25" taller than Lebron. There isn't much chance a good 6cm between them.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Aug/18
@Jrbowe42

I can see you're still a rookie when it comes to heights. 7ft is a joke.
Canson said on 15/Aug/18
Lebron is not 6’8” and KD doesn’t have 4” on him. It’s about 2.5 tops. If Lebron actually measured the 6’7.25 they claim and it was a morning height he’s likely 6’6.5-6’7, at best flat 6’7” is how he looks and KD 6’9-6’9.5 is how he looks with 6’5 draymond Green
viper said on 14/Aug/18
Better chance you win the Powerball than the NBA underlisting a player by 3 inches. Absurd
Jrbowe42 said on 13/Aug/18
He’s taller than 6‘9“. He was easily 4 inches taller than LeBron James, who‘s 6‘8“. I‘d say he’s around 7ft flat.
Canson said on 11/Aug/18
@Yusuf: nope. Look at him with Melo. I’ve met Melo and he’s 6’6” like he was measured. This isn’t the best pic but JR isn’t even 6’5 with he or Lebron. Max for Smith imho is 6’4.5 maybe even just as tall as I am at 6’4.25 at a low.

Yusuf said on 6/Aug/18
@Canson: how tall is jr smith barefoot it said he was measured at 6'5.5 barefoot in the 2004 draft do u agree with this height?
Canson said on 4/Aug/18
@Yusuf: yep and the Rock says he’s 6’5 when he’s 6’2”. Durant was obviously joking. He’s maybe 6’10.75 in 1.25” basketball shoes if even that. A lot of guys throw the 3/4” on to make their height claim more convincing. Here he is with 6’6” Carmelo Anthony who I’ve met before. It’s just like with Charles Barkley’s case. People say he downplays his height because he was a small power forward. In reality, the 6’4-6’5 measurements he gets are his actual barefoot measurements while the rest of the league lists at a shoe height. Barkley is a little under 6’6 in shoes and Durant’s 6’9-6’9.5 is a barefoot height while his 6’10.75 claim may be a shoe height maybe even morning height in shoes. Claiming 6’11” for him or being 6’11” with the type of game he has sounds more impressive than being 6’9”. It’s opposite

Dont know whats wrong with u people he said himself that he was measured at 6'10.75/three quarters and 7 foot with sneakers on.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jul/18
Dwight Howard seemingly taller tan Durant by 1/2. Durant can be 6'9 1/2 if Dwight really measure 6'10. But not the low side for both of them.
Canson said on 30/Jun/18
@Joe: he looks 6’5” range almost always. Remember Danny Green measured in 08 in the afternoon at 6’4.5 and 09 6’5.25. He may have been 6’5 1/8 since they don’t so 1/8” increments but there’s max 2cm between Green and Leonard. Doesn’t even look a full inch imho. I’ll say Green may be 6’4.75 at a low now but Kawhi doesn’t look over 6’5.5 to be honest. Maybe even 6’5.25. The one who consistently looks shorter than his listing is Jimmy Butler. He looks a solid 6’5 most of the time not 6’6.25 and he’s listed at 6’8” now since he went to Minnesota (6’7” with the Bulls). For good measure, Viper has met Scott Van Pelt from ESPN who said he’s 6’6” and Viper confirmed that. I live in the DC area just like Viper and a buddy of mine used to golf with Van Pelt and said the same thing that he’s a legit 6’6” in person. Van Pelt has a pic with Andrew Wiggins who appears around the same as him. Now maybe he’s favored in that pic with Wiggins but Wiggins is noticeably taller than Butler and they’re both listed 6’8”. Butler looks 6’5 with he and with KAT as well as Taj Gibson
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jun/18
After all estimate 6'9 1/8 its all just my guesstimate. Durant can really look 6'9 1/2 but also 6'9 1/4. In the 206.5cm zone.
joe### said on 29/Jun/18

the 6'6 meter guess I went in the morning because he look short with 6'9 dermacus cousins

Kawhi looks 6´5.5
Canson said on 24/Jun/18
@Christian: good call! Also I should’ve specified a low as well. He would measure 6’9.5 at some point In the day as he likely would 6’9.75. I agree tho that 6’9.25 is likely
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Jun/18
@Canson

Maybe not "no way" but the chances are slim. I wouldn't rule out the 6'9.5" listing here, although 6'9.25" is more where I see him at.
Canson said on 19/Jun/18
No way Durant is more thanmaybe 6’9.25

Koushiro said on 10/Jun/18
This guy's height is a strange one to figure out. His skinny frame and leg length make him appear 6'11 or so. No lower than this listing and wouldn't surprise me if he was in the 6'10 range.
Canson said on 9/Jun/18
@Junior: that’s possible for Mailman 6’8 or 6’7.75.

@Warren: he’s very lanky which is why people think he’s taller than he is. That of course along with the fact that he uses his barefoot height, which may be even a bit over 6’9 that was rounded down and it is likely a low for him. I could agree with Rob’s previous listing 6’9.25 as a low for him. 6’9.5 is possible as well but either way we slice it, he’s 6’10 out of bed very easily
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jun/18
@Canson Both Howard and Durant might end up the lowest of the day at 6'9 1/8 range. Bosh a high chance a tall fellow not under 208.5cm. 6'10 was definitely a bit of a round down.
Warren said on 2/Jun/18
I'm wondering if he actually is only 6'9.1", how long is his inseam/inside leg for his height ratio?
Canson said on 29/May/18
@Junior: Howard can look taller than KD at times. But then with Bosh it’s an inch difference so I agree 6’9” no less
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/May/18
@Canson Mailman could have lost a 1/4 maybe 6'8 peak, KD i now give 6'9 1/8 and Bosh 6'10 1/8 because it's very difficult to see under 1.25" between them even we took away those camera angle issues and i"ll generously give an inch differences. Dwight Howard look more legitmate 6'9 than many 6'9 draft measurement players.
Canson said on 26/May/18
@Junior: my guesses are Mailman 6’7.75, KD 6’9.25, Bosh 6’10. Dwight Howard admitted to being 6’10” in shoes so the 6’9” is probably all that I could give him. Maybe the same as KD at 6’9.25.
Canson said on 26/May/18
Well said here too Junior
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/May/18
Click Here
I would say Bosh is 6'10 1/4 at his low if he did have grow a half inch like Durant if not he is just 6'9 7/8 but it is impossible so lets stick to 6'10 1/8 low for Bosh and with a little camera advantage he could look about 2" taller than Durant in this picture and we can see Karl Malone might be a little bit of weak 6'8. Anything before bed for Durant is 6'9-6'9 1/8 really not above that and not going to happen.
Canson said on 20/May/18
@Junior: you said that very eloquently and very well! That was great insights on your part! Durant I’m going to assume was an afternoon measurement only because they said it was done that way in 2008 so likely 2007. It changed to all morning in 09. However, Shane pointed out previously that they may be told to lie down etc or wake up later so that they measure closer to morning height maxes. You may be right tho with Lebron as they say he may not have measured at his
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/May/18
@Canson If we keep in mind of that draft measurement taking between 6-7am in the morning therefore Durant would drop to mid range of 6'8 5/8 (204.78cm) at low. We could say that Durant is just lucky to grow just half inch and could be at his insane low at 6'9 1/8 (206cm). Remember we figure out Lebron absolute low maybe a flat 200cm and there is always 6cm we could see between Durant and Lebron not more. The focus point is all players who measure 6'9 were not legit 6'9 if we estimate them they will be 6'8.5-6'8.65" range depend did they atually busting a gut for measurement gaining 1/4 or they honestly keep up a straight posture for measurements. If Lebron is not a single mm over 200cm i will throw a flat 206cm guess for Durant but ofcos this will not satisfied the fans and they will keep argue a 6'10 for Durant just because others players height were overlisted on the NBA official site that ruined the perception of real height of the few players who given an honest claimed height.
Canson said on 17/May/18
There is a good chance that Durant didn’t grow at all. He may have been the same height of just over 6’9” or strong 6’9 (6’9.25-.5) ever since he came in the league and they may have just listed 6’9” in his pre draft. To be fair he is closer to 6’9” than 6’10 most likely. But this is barefoot and the NBA measures and lists in shoes mostly rounded up as well and from a morning measurement. It’s a similar situation to a Charles Barkley. Barkley is 6’4 1/2 barefoot so they make a big deal about his height (barefoot) to where others say that he’s downplaying it. In reality, that’s just his barefoot height as opposed to someone like Karl Malone who is listed 6’9” and is really 6’8 (by his own admission) or perhaps even a hair under the mark like 6’7.75 being that won’t look any different from 6’8”. That’s about how he looks typically. So if you say that Barkley is 6’4.5 but Malone is 6’9” that will not add up. That’s why people assume that about Barkley. It’s the same for Kevin Durant. They try to “overplay” how tall he is because of his skill just like they do with Lebron. There isn’t as much merit to Lebron being the height they have said “6’9 260” as there is to Durant’s. Durant is always said to be 6’11” in NBA conversation on TV because he is 6’9 and change barefoot which makes him 6’10.5 in shoes. That’s where the 6’11” comes from. It’s the same with Draymond Green. Notice how Green is listed 6’7” but his coaches say he’s only 6’5? That 6’5 (likely 6’5-6’5.25) is barefoot and would be what he would measure in the afternoon as opposed to the morning. So that doesn’t add up? Draymond 6’5 but Durant 6’11? There is 4 or so inches between them not 6”. Draymond however is already an undersized power forward and even more so when he moves over to Center like he does in the playoffs each year for entire games. Durant is like Dirk Nowitzki in his prime a great shooter with even better skills when it comes to his ways to attack. Maybe not quite as good a shooter from deep however. So they make a bigger deal about his height as he has played some shooting guard during his career at 6’11 in shoes and 6’9” and change barefoot. But at least durant is in keeping with the rest of the league since almost everyone is listed at a “morning” shoe height which is rounded up most of the time where KD would be 6’11 in shoes at that stage.

But it works both ways

Barkley 6’4.5 (listed 6’6 on paper with shoe height rounded up)
Draymond 6’5-6’5.25 (6’5.75 morning which may even be closer to 6’5.5 given no 1/8” increments) but listed 6’7” on paper which is shoes rounded up
Durant 6’9-6’9.5 (listed 6’9 on paper but is said to be 6’11 to match him up with other NBA players’s inflation’s).

Barkley 6’6 (6’5.5-6’6” in sneakers) but 6’4.5 barefoot
Draymond 6’7 (6’6.5-6’7 in sneakers in the morning) but 6’5-6’5.25 barefoot in the afternoon
Durant 6’11 (6’10.5 in shoes) in NBA conversation and by theorists but 6’9-6’9.5 barefoot

It is all about which argument fits the player and their strengths and makes them sound more impressive. But facts are facts and their barefoot height is their actual height. Shoes aren’t part of your body so durant really is only 6’9” and change at best and Barkley 6’4 and change Draymond at best 6’5 and change
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/May/18
@Mike O Funny thing is 6'10 1/4 Chris Bosh standing side by side make Durant look like a flat 6'9 guy.

Mike O said on 17/May/18
The confusion over Kevin Durant's listed height is a result of him being a late bloomer. He was around 6'2" for much of high school before hitting a growth spurt late and reaching 6'7". He continued to grow when he reached the University of Texas and his 6'9" listing was probably initially from that time. He was only 19 when he first entered the NBA and he probably pushed out another 1-2" since then. I'm guessing he's 6'10.5".
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/May/18
@Canson But strange that Durant recently downplay 6'8-6'9 in an interview when being ask how tall he is that reminds me Kobe claim that he is probably 6'5 in sneakers and one time Shaq claim to Howard Stern he is 6'11. Not sure why they all downplaying it.
Canson said on 7/May/18
@Christian: agreed!
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 5/May/18
6'9" and change
Canson said on 4/May/18
@Junior: that could be right. I have him over flat 6’9 but probably not near 6’10. I agree more, in hindsight, with the 6’9.25 he initially was listed. He looks like he could be a strong 6’9” however. 6’9.5 isn’t out of the question either but I can safely rule out anything higher based on how he looks with Deandre Jordan
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/May/18
@Canson I would have just say Durant could be a guy holding a solid 206.5cm at his low since Yi is more like a strong 6'10.75" looks it next to 6'9 Dwight Howard.
Canson said on 23/Apr/18
@Junior: agreed! Not less than a strong 6’9” but probably not a full 6’10 or even above 207
Canson said on 22/Apr/18
@Viper: Durant doesn’t look 1.5” shorter than LA. That looks less than an inch to be honest. I can buy Durant having grown, albeit a tiny fraction, and being 6’9” and change. He is not 6’10 however. His 6’11” is just like a 6’4 1/2 Michael Jordan being listed 6’6”. It’s a shoe height rounded up a bit. He may be rounded up more than MJ however
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Apr/18
I remember in 2011 Durant look 1.5" shorter than a 6'11 drafted Yi Jianlian when they're participant from some basketball event or something. Yi is probably a strong 6'10 3/4 guy at his low if 6'11 took in the morning. Now i'm not sure Durant could even measure 6'9.5" at lowest. But strange that he recent claim that he is 6'8-6'9 on a interview when get ask hi height. I wouldn't go below 6'9 1/4 for him.
Canson said on 20/Apr/18
@Viper: he may have been 6’9” range when drafted but I completely agree that he is 6’10” now. I know that Andrew Wiggins did not attend the pre draft and was supposedly 6’7” barefoot. However, he looked the same height as Scott Van Pelt next to him. Now that was a bad angle but he’s not a whole lot taller if he is. It would still put Wiggins sub 6’7” possibly.

Jimmy Butler is way off!!! He was listed 6’7” with the Bulls and was boosted up to 6’8” this year. He shows a 6’6” measurement at the combine but next to Derrick Rose or Scottie Pippen or even Joakim Noah, he looks 6’5.5 max. 6’6” would be a morning height however and it’s possible he had reached his full height by then. Wiggins is taller than Butler, as well.
viper said on 19/Apr/18
Durant really only looks 6-8.5-6-9 next to 6-10 Lamarcus Alridge.

Canson, I swear back in the day a David Robinson basketball card had him listed at 6-11.

It reminds me how no site on the internet has Jose Canseco at 6-3, yet he was listed as that on all his cards

Thanks! I was on vacation for a while and was busy.
Canson said on 14/Apr/18
@Viper: youre wrong to a degree. that wasn’t a morning measurement for Durant in 2007. It was an afternoon height for him. It said that it went from afternoon to morning going from 2008 to 2009 combines. Brandon Roy was drafted a year ahead of Durant in 06 and he looked his pre draft height in person (no worse than maybe 1/8” below it). But as far as proof of him growing there is none, so you are correct. There is a possibility he did grow though but not to 6’10. The other possibility is that he was 6’9” and change then and that they just didn’t bother with the fraction. I know with Jason Maxiell he shows 6’5” on his pre draft but when he measured overseas for a different league (6’5 and under ironically) he was 6’5 11/16 at 1 PM and wasn’t given the benefit of the doubt. He was cut because he was too tall. I know his cousin who says he’s about 6’5 1/2. So either he grew or wasn’t listed all the way to the fraction. I know other players on his Pistons teams said he was 6’5/6’6 too when he played there
viper said on 13/Apr/18
Do we really have any solid proof he grew any from his flat 6-9 measurement. And was that a morning measurement.

He's just a long looking guy that physically looks taller than he is like Snoop Dogg

KD is actually 7 feet. 6'9 is the listed NBA height lol
Canson said on 12/Apr/18
@Duhon: that’s not the best picture to compare because Durant is closer to the camera than DJ but I posted some last summer where they were on the Olympic team and Jordan was only slightly taller like 1/2” or a cm. So I agree with you it is not a full inch. If DJ is 6’9.75, KD is likely 6’9-6’9.5 range meaning he’s a stronger 6’9” than a flat one. He would be 6’10 or higher out of bed since 2007 was an afternoon combine
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 12/Apr/18
@Viper

6'8.75" seems too low for Durant.
Canson said on 11/Apr/18
6’9 would likely be an extreme low because of how tall he is and how much someone his size would have the propensity to lose in a day. But He could measure earlier in the day at this mark even around midday possibly still and be over 6’10 out of bed. But 6’10.75 is in shoes around the time he’d measure 6’9.5 barefoot. 6’9.25 is likely a normal low for him
Duhon said on 11/Apr/18

Yet some think he's 7-0!!!
Canson said on 10/Apr/18
@Viper: I’d say he’s over 6’9”. DJ doesn’t appear to be an inch taller than him they’re maybe 1/2” or a cm at times. DJ May have grown to 6’10 but I see with KG he still looks a good 1-1.5 shorter don’t think he grew. Durant looks 6’9-6’9.5 range. Looks close to 207 honestly maybe 1/4” is right but it’s better than someone saying he’s 6’10 or more
Canson said on 9/Apr/18
@Viper: yes the truth! But some don’t want to believe the truth for some reason. They make a big deal about his height or him being taller than he is to make what he does sound better is what it is. Being a big 2/3 in OKC when he was. He’s simply using his barefoot height and maybe he is 6’9-6’9.5. But he’s underlisted bexause others are listed in shoes and then some. Just like with Charles Barkley people say he undersells himself when he doesn’t. He just claims his barefoot height and others do too for him because then era he played in (early part of it) there was less inflation than today (with him being an exception).
Viper said on 9/Apr/18
I honestly could buy 6-8.75 for Durant looking a full inch shorter than 6-9.75 Jordan at the foul line. It was obvious
Canson said on 8/Apr/18
@Viper: he doesn’t look 6’8” barefoot and it’s rare that a NBA player is that height they’re listed at. He doesn’t have an official measurement on paper either. All I saw was when he was drafted they listed his height in shoes most likely as Most of the others back then were. Hill looks 6’7” barefoot with other players. He’s not any taller (noticably) than TMac. If anything maybe 1/2” which makes sense as TMAC from what most say that I know (I know a relative of his actually that is friends with one of my friends) TMAC is 6’6/6’7 which ironically I’ve seen 6’6.5 for him and that’s how he looks with Vince Carter who i also doubt is 6’5.5. Carter isn’t as tall as a peak Dr J was or with Hakeem Olajuwon. Carter was said by Richard Jefferson to be “6’4 1/2, maybe 6’5 on a good day”. I think closer to 6’5 tho as KROC also has posted where he met him in his Vinsanity days and he looked a full 6’5” but no higher. Carter is the same as Mourning in regards to only having one measurement. Not a barefoot and inshoes. Mourning ironically measured 6’8” and was listed 6’9.5 in the article posted in college and the same height when he became a pro. Likely he did not grow and is still the same height that he admitted he was
Canson said on 8/Apr/18
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.
viper said on 8/Apr/18
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

@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
Johnson said on 16/Feb/18
@Rob

Kevin Durant deserves an upgrade

Editor Rob
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

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
@Duhon: I’m thinking 6’11 based on that pic

@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

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
Are the 76ers finally good now. They have tanked like forever

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.

@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
