Kevin Love's Height
6ft 7.75in (202.6 cm)
American basketball player, who has played for Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers. In a 2008 article it mentioned that "Some executives wondered whether UCLA forward Love plays in elevator shoes. Love measured 6-7 ¾ barefoot. He was 6-9½ with shoes. 'Does that mean he was wearing orthotics?' Nets president Rod Thorn asked. 'It could very well be. How does somebody go up 1 and three-quarter inches?'
Love himself in 2011 that "I'm 6-9 without shoes on the best day of my life. At the predraft camp in 2008, they measured my wingspan at 6-11¾, and I grew out my fingernails for that, too!"

@Junior: agreed. He may have grown a tad and could’ve been what you had him around maybe 6’7ish when drafted. He prob really isn’t much taller than Love is or Love could be shorter than his measurement. I’ve heard dan Majerle say he’s only 6’7” when he stood next to him and saw something on a site of a guy whose brother is 6’8 met Kevin Love at a basketball camp and said his brother was slightly taller. I wonder if it’s more love 6’7.25 Thompson 6’7.5-.75 and Lebron 6’6.75. Or if Thompson and love are close in height in reality

To be fair i don't think if Thompson pre-draft measurement in the morning at 6'7.5" and he can hold the same while he should be at low 6'7 and Love 6'7.75" morning measurement should be down at his low at 6'7.25" that makes me wonder Thompson had grow a half inch but that would be 6'8 morning and 6'7.5" lowest. Love may not be growing after drafted. That could be why Thompson can give a 6'8 impression but compare him with Lebron most of time i can see max 2cm and we all knew that Lebron is more of a legit 200cm guy.

@Junior: I can go with 6’7.5- 6’7.75. Maybe 6’6.75 for Lebron and Thompson is a real 6’8”. He is taller than both of them.

@Junior: I think Thompson did grow. I agree he looks 6’8” too but looks taller than Love In my honest opinion. His draft measurement was likely a morning height so maybe it was a bit more than half
Junior said on 23/Oct/17
I agree with you. But i think Tristan Thompson had grow half inch maybe 6'8 is more reliable rather than 6'7.5" draft camp measurement.

I can’t see full 6’8. He’s not as tall as Tristan Thompson in some pics. Maybe 6’7.75 max
Junior said on 16/Oct/17
I read up he had a massive us size 19 huge feet and described at 6'9 and possible he was just 6'7.75" listing here but that feet size is like for someone over 7'1-7'2 range..

202 range half inch or so taller than Lebron 1.25-1.5” on Melo

Does he have more footwear than Lebron really?
Johnson said on 11/Oct/17
Was he measured in elevator shoes?
Canson said on 9/Oct/17
I would say Lebron at most solid 6’7” love 6’7.5 Thompson may have grown to 6’8”. Looks a bit taller than Lebron and love do
Canson said on 8/Oct/17
@Johnson: correct. At most 1/2” or 3/4 on Lebron. Very most is what rob has him listed but I’d go with 6’7.5
Canson said on 7/Oct/17
6’7.5 barefoot. Most who met him when he was with Minnesota peg him as 6’7-6’8 and Dan majerle called him 6’7” as well

That's seriously big feets, frankly, it's looks good on him.

6'8 is right
Johnson said on 6/Oct/17
@Gonzalo he is not that tall. Saludos de taturas. I hope to localize you in threads of heights
Gonzalo said on 6/Oct/17
Thought he was more around 2`05 or 2`06

i thnk he 6'9
Sean said on 4/Oct/17
Looking at pictures of him and Lebron James online, it looks to be an inch difference. That would put Love at 6’8.25” which I believe his current height is. The 6’7.75” was his listing at age 19 and sometimes Basketball players grow after age 18. Plus the pictures with Undertaker shown on this site looks to be a good 2 inches even with takers hat on.

Looked really tall next to Taker, maybe 6´8" evening today?
His claim 6´9" at best... sounds like legit morning height to me.
I go with 6´8" usual eveningheight and 6´7.75" at his lowest.
184guy said on 4/Oct/17
Could be the full 6'8
If I'm not Wrong, he was measured at this About 20years oldish
Looked at least 2 inches taller than taker.
