How tall was Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant's Height

6ft 4 ¾ (194.9 cm)

American basketball player, best remembered as a legend of the game, having played 20 seasons with The Los Angeles Lakers. He once claimed "I'm 6 foot 6", in 1998 said "This growth spurt better come fast. Really fast. Say, by tonight. I'm 6-7...Barely 6-7" He has claimed on a few occasions to be under 6ft 5, including in 2008: "I'm probably 6-5 in sneaks".

@Vincent: it’s hard to tell from the pic he posted but I could see that being Vince has a slight footwear advantage. I’ve seen people online that have met Vince say he was as low 6’4.5” and then Richard Jefferson said 6’4.5 or 6’5 or on good day. My personal guess is that he’s 6’5” flat afternoon height. He was given 6’5.5 at the combine but he never looks that tall. He looked shorter than Dr. J in their pic and most people here argue Dr J at his peak only being 6’5.5 or 6’5.75

RJT: looking at posture and the top of their heads I am not seeing a half inch.
Canson said on 30/Oct/20
@RJT: I’d say 6’4.75 and 6’5”. I could’ve given Carter 6’5” flat before too as they can look the same height at times. Carter also has a thicker shoe on.

VC looks slightly taller than Kobe, look at their shoulders

@Junior: look at the years when Michael Redd was on the team in the early 2000s. He looks small in these pics here for some reason. Maybe his posture. I always knew he wasn’t as tall as Kobe but he looks small. Then Ray looks close to 4” shorter than Big Dog in some of those pics. And only maybe 2” taller than Cassell, I wonder if Bug Dog was his listed height barefoot. He could look it at times then at other times 6’6.5 perhaps

@Junior: 195 is my guess
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 26/Oct/20
If properly standing straight measure Kobe i don't think he is ever lower than 195cm. Peopl don't always had perfect posture walk out the street. Some claim they seen Kobe in real and he look 6'4-1/4-1/2 some say 6'5 and some say more and truth is just with posture, shoes and ground. The one see him lower because he might had poorer posture that day or just less footwear than the sighters claim and people sees him higher than listed is because the ground he walk pass or walk up the person helps a little bit. Simple as that. Michael Strahan isn't a guy under 6'4 yet and Kobe had him by an easy 2cm in different occasion which prove it right on Vanessa Bryant claim on Kobe's 6'3/4 w/o shoes and mostly a lowest measurement.
Canson said on 30/Sep/20
@Fried Chicken: id give him around 197 out of bed maybe 196.5-197 range and 194.5-195 at a low. Essentially 6’5.5/6’4.75”
FriedChicken said on 29/Sep/20
6'5.25 first thing in the morning then shrinks to 6'4 1/2 before bed i say. Afternoon height is this listing.
Canson said on 21/Sep/20
@Slim: I’d go opposite. Kobe looked taller than MJ. Jordan mostly looks a weak 6’5” sometimes strong 6’4” whereas Kobe looks 6’5” pretty often which makes me believe that 195 is his normal low. MJ is prob 194-195 range like when drafted (6’4.5)”
Slim 6'1" said on 20/Sep/20
I’d give mj the edge over this guy

Editor Rob
Very close to Jordan, I think those guys may well be a toss up at times, both could pass for 6ft 5 range, other times 6ft 4.75

Jordan wears orthotics apparently but 6’4.75” would be a very fair listing for him imho. He definitely wasn’t taller than Kobe

@Canson

Rob did mention Rick Fox did have a bigger head than Anthony Joshua. Proportionately, he probably didn’t look near 6’6”. It’s a similar problem to Tom Hopper, who’s small head makes him look more than 6’5”.

Agreed and AJ has 6’6” proportions which is why he passes for 6’6 in pics whereas Fox doesn’t

Canson said on 12/Jul/20
@Dream: what’s strange is that Rob said Fox didn’t look the full 6’6” in person as he doesn’t quite look it with Kobe, Devean George, or Robert Horry, yet he still lists him at that. Not to mention, Fox has said before he’s 6’5” range
Dream said on 7/Jul/20
@Canson

Indeed. I feel Bo would be taller than Kobe. He honestly looks almost the same as Anthony Joshua, with Greg Davies. With footwear advantage, Anthony looked taller than Rick Fox, who beats out Kobe Bryant.

The 6’5.5” listing works, well too. Honestly, based on how Bo and Anthony stacks up with Greg Davies, Bo seems like he would edge out someone like Wladimir Klitschko.
Canson said on 3/Jul/20
@Dream: agreed. I could see the listing for Bo being a good listing for him or 1/4” less max. You and I were also responsible for the first 1/4” as he was initially listed at 6’5” flat! It’d be interesting to see him next to Christian and to see if there is a noticeable difference. MWP and a peak Stern also fall into that category. And we can potentially throw a peak Tom Noonan in there
Dream said on 29/Jun/20
@Canson @Christian

Actually, I think Bo's listing holds up well. Bo looks close in height with Anthony Joshua, with Greg Davies.

Perhaps Christian was right. it's really no more than 1/8th overlisted. Otherwise, it's fine.
Canson said on 12/Jun/20
@Dream: MWP could be 6’5.25 perhaps
Dream said on 9/Jun/20
@Canson and @Christian

I think Bo would be more Metta World Peace, both 6’5 3/8”.

Maybe that old 6’5.25” listing was better, after all.
Canson said on 9/Jun/20
@Dream: I could see two possibilities. Kobe May have been a solid 6’5” or 6’4 7/8 or Bo could be 6 5.25” instead of 6’5.5”. Maybe both could be the truth. If he got 6’5” measurements As opposed to 6’6” and so did Kobe at the Olympics 6’5.25 I think
Dream said on 9/Jun/20
@Canson and @Rob

Kobe edging out MCW, I agree. It’s more re-examining the comparison, between Bo and Kobe.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Jun/20
@Dream
Most likely not. If he is, it's only by 1/8" at most IMO. I can't really see him being under 196cm.
Canson said on 8/Jun/20
@Dream: I think Bo would edge out both but Kobe edges out MCW

Not necessarily, I think Bo generally looks over 6ft 5

Dream said on 8/May/20
@Canson and @Christian

Kobe would have an edge on MCW, but I don't think it's much. You could argue about 1/2 inch between them though. I wouldn't put it as 3/4 inch.

I think Bo is a strong inch taller than than MCW, if we are going by headlines. His left right brow is nearing MCW's headline, even while slouching.

Feel free to disagree with me, once again, folks. I'm only observing by their headlines and Bo and Kobe's listings hold up, easily.
Canson said on 2/May/20
@Christian and Dream: MCW got a 6’5” listing under the “new” “unofficial” (I digress) standard. So I believe his 6’4,75 morning height. He’s probably just about identical with me in height whereas Kobe would’ve probably been 1/2” taller than him in that pic
Dream said on 2/May/20
@Christian oops! Yeah. I agree! Sorry! I should’ve discovered that, a while ago! The clip is still far better than the other pictures I sent before. They’re close, but I think Kobe edges out MCW.

@Rob what about at 0:02 seconds, where Kobe Bryant briefly lifts his head up? I’m not saying either really looks taller. I’m just pointing Kobe and MCW do look close in height. I wished I discovered this clip, sooner.

Looking at them, I think Bo is comfortably taller than MCW, despite Bo slouching. Bo’s right eyebrow is nearly reaching MCW’s headline, which would indicate at least an inch if not a tiny bit more. Feel free to disagree with me though.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/May/20
@Dream
That clips' been around for over 4 years, lol. But anyways, I'd say Kobe edges him out by a tiny bit.
Canson said on 1/May/20
@Junior: that was my guess for Theus was 6’5.25 and 6’6 out of bed. It’s possible Kobe had 1/4” more shoe and that he wasn’t on his feet as long that day. I don’t think it’s the case there in that video because Kobe was younger but I wonder upon facts being revealed after his passing if him traveling by helicopter may have helped him preserve height during the day if he were reclined. I’ve always wondered why he looked taller at times but he may have been 195-195.2 or something. Then again 1/2” between two people is indistinguishable at times, especially when someone has a camera advantage

@Jdubbz: I guess if the 6’4 15/16 measured that straight out of bed they could be 6’4 flat although it would likely include an extreme low. But Christian is implying an afternoon or near a low so a near enough 6’5” guy
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 1/May/20
Reggie Theus is closer to 6'5 1/4.

It's tough to tell with Kobe looking mostly downwards.
Canson said on 28/Apr/20
@Rob: it’s close. I never believed he was 6’7” like listed. He also coached Metta World Peace when he was in Sacramento. Theus looked shorter with Metta World Peace than Kobe

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Mar/20
@Thereel
A 6'4 15/16" guy at his low claiming 6'4", is just as inaccurate as a 6'5 1/16" guy at his low claiming 6'6". Both are inflating/downgrading 15/16" of an inch at the end of the day.

I agree with what you're saying, but one could argue that a guy who is 6'5 1/16 at his low could potentially measure 6'6 at one point in the day (though very briefly), whereas a 6'4 15/16" guy will never measure anything nearly as low as 6'4 at any point in the day. One of those is claiming morning height, while the other is claiming a height that is an inch under what he'd measure under the worst conditions.

Right around the same height as Klay Thompson. I think he needs an upgrade to 6’5. Looks every bit of it with nearly everyone. Click Here

6ft5 for The Late Great Kobe.
Canson said on 14/Mar/20
@Christian: Excellent point on your part! It goes hand in hand with what Both of us have said on the GH forum before that if we gained height throughout the day instead of losing it, we would likely see a different pattern on Celebheights. You would see people claiming their afternoon heights who would otherwise claim their morning height and the reasoning that they use now would no longer apply. To add to that although society has conditioned us to believe that, people who are Much shorter would inflate someone to a height that is not really necessary such as 6’6” Or 6’8” when in reality I’m sure if some of those people were really that height and didn’t use it for Pro Sports, they would probably be miserable. Most assume taller is better until you reach a height that is very uncomfortable. Not something like you or I are at our current heights, more like 6’6-6’9 range or taller
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Mar/20
@Canson
Excellent point! Other than the fact that height is more visually distinguishable than age, it also has to do with the fact that the less value, the better, when it comes to age, but more is better with height, since we live in a society where it's conditioned to us that younger and taller are more desirable. If the roles were reversed, in that older and shorter are better, then everyone would round up when it comes to age, and round down when it comes to height.
Canson said on 8/Mar/20
@Christian: also while I would agree with the age argument in a perfect world, it wouldn’t fly with height in the world we live in, because height is more of a visual characteristic than age. There’s too much wiggle room and, unfortunately, too many variables. And It’s a lot harder to tell how old someone is than it is to tell how tall they are. So if you have two 45 year olds, one may appear to look 45 or even 55 whereas one may look 35. But age is more defined and little wiggle room with it. With height, while there are variables, the eye test is more concrete, and if two guys stood next to one another to compare heights they obviously would stand completely straight to achieve the best outcome. In the world we live in, most people want to be as tall as they can. And if you get 3 guys who compare barefoot, who are 6’5”, 6’4.75, and 6’4”, the first two will look pretty much the same during the comparison whereas there will be a pronounced difference with them and the 6’4” guy. If people are assessing them, assuming they are all equal (barefoot), anyone judging the comparisons will automatically call the 6’4.75 guy 6’5 by deduction if the 6’4 guy is noticeably shorter. While 1/4” Difference could be seen with some, albeit few, people, a 1/16” difference is impossible for anyone to see. At that stage, the person would have to claim 6’5” to avoid downplaying whereas a person who is 45 and 11 months would claim 45 just as a person who turned 45 last week would and if we looked at their IDs it would be them being the same age or one would say that they’re 11 months younger or older than the other.

I didn’t lie about anything. And I didn’t say you accused him of rape. I said that you brought up the allegations. So you want to accuse me of having “cognition” issues when it’s clear that you’re talking about yourself. But that doesn’t surprise me because you misinterpreted my entire post and became insulting toward me because I didn’t agree with you when I actually was agreeing with your logic. And What do his rape charges/allegations have to do with his height? So Don’t misrepresent what I say or put words in my mouth. It isn’t a cognition issue here Thereel. This is you making excuses now and playing the “persecution card” with the “good person” etc when you have no room to talk. You clearly brought up the situation and said he was not a good person for “lying to a terminally ill kid” when you have absolutely no proof that he did. You need to practice what you preach because you are obviously a hypocrite telling someone they need to be a good person. And the context in which you brought it up was that because he lied to a kid about his height and the way he was charged with rape, you made it sound as if he were lying about his height for that reason. Well, he was measured at 6’4.75 by his wife and you were just the one who said himself that a 6’4.75 guy is 6’4. Do you not remember that? So how is he lying?
Thereel said on 17/Feb/20
Canson what I said makes sense the problem is you have misinterpreted my argument due to lower level cognition, and I never aquised kobe of rape, lieing is wrong and learned and has no innate basis to it so I think you need to try and become a better person,
Canson said on 16/Feb/20
@Thereel: baseline common sense? Hmmm? You are the one sitting here saying that people who are within X-X.99 are supposed to round down? And you see that nobody here has bothered to reply to you (which is the norm here on Celebheights) other than myself and Cmillz, which he wisely stopped after 1 post being he saw how tedious and useless a discussion with you is. You obviously lack common sense and appear to have very little going for you which is why you cling on to being a free agent basketball player and brag about your height on this site and how long you’ve been here (since 2010). The only thing you have is a very hurt and inflated ego with the way you are. You sound very ignorant and very childish and you appear to have a reading comprehension problem as anyone else can read the posts below that I made to you which you obviously can’t. So speaking of common sense, since you like to pull the “Canson met several celebs card”, again where is your Pic with Big Stormzy? You claimed to meet him and immediately listed that you can’t share details? Hmmm? Yet you criticize me about me not posting? But speaking of Big Stormzy let’s say you both measured standing straight barefoot of course and he were 6’4 7/8 and you are 196cm like you claimed. That’s very possible being you just said that you agreed with me I’m not seeing 1/4” difference (or in your case 3/4 you said under other factors). So you said clearly that Stormzy was 6’5” and you’re 6’5? Yet you just posted your diatribe stating why we as people are not allowed to round up at all? So you just tripped yourself up there.
Thereel said on 16/Feb/20
"Oh and how is .75 closer to 1/2” than a full inch?"

Fair enough you got me the one thing I said that wasn't logical and you pulled me up on it well done doesn't negate the other things I said, and more importantly in real life people by and large only deal with full inches so when people say "he's at least 6'4 maybe 6'5" they are obviously not talking anything below 6'4 1/2" that is common sense, I'm not going to keep on explaining what should be obvious, your just being stubborn for the sake of stubborn, I don't believe you lack this basic level of inference as since you are 37 or 38 (oh sorry I meant 37 and three quarters up through 38) and also are earning a living I assume you have at least baseline common sense
Canson said on 15/Feb/20
Thereel said on 9/Feb/20
You are here saying “you can’t” do something or that you didn’t say it’s ok and you say it on authority based on how long you’ve been a poster, Thereel? I don’t take direction from you by the way because you don’t own the site. Rob does. And You’ve commented before To me on me being a “newbie” when I had already been here 3 years or so in your post back to me so it’s Clear the real issue is that you don’t respect anyone who hasn’t been on Celebheights as long as you have or who people respect more than you. And anyone who can retain what they read and what I wrote can see I didn’t say I was a fan of rounding. I’ve actually spoken out about “too much rounding before”. So you put words in my mouth (very childish) because I challenged you and you have no Rebuttal but several others here on this site have actually said you can round up yet you don’t say a word to them but because they didn’t challenge your post. But as Expected, most people here won’t even bother commenting back to you because very few actually take you seriously. They think your comments are either a joke or that you yourself are a joke which doesn’t seem far fetched. and I made The mistake responding myself as did Cmillz although he stopped after 1 post because he was able to tell that it is a vicious circle of stupidity.

And now you are making excuses about Glucosamine, posture and breathing or whatever else the case may be because you don’t actually believe what you’re saying is true and because I differed. And You didn’t say any of that. You said anyone 6’4-6’4.99 (I’m assuming) can’t round up. It doesn’t matter about any of the excuses you made because when they measure physically that’s all that matters. So if one measures standing straight and the other does standing straight that one of the two would not be physically taller with scientific proof? Obviously an 1/8” could vary but a person who is 3/4” taller by tape is a fact. 3/4” would be noticeable and that’s if “all things were equal“ posture etc shoes, which I would hope you would understand being youve convinced yourself that your an expert and you like to brag to anyone who listens how long you’ve been or how long they haven’t been here or how you brag to people about being taller than everyone else on this site at 6’5“+. And it Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that. But I wouldn’t expect any less considering that none of your posts make any logical sense which is why no one else bothers with you. So instead you have to make excuses and twist words or lie when someone calls you on your bullsh*t or condescending ways. And You just said someone who is less than 195.8 is a weak 6’5”? So what about someone who measures it earlier In the day and claims it? They would’ve measured it at some point during the day. Which is why Rob’s definition is 1/4-1/3” under the 6’5 mark for weak 6’5. But we know why he runs the site and not you. But you think you’re the authority based on your tenure of making useless nonsense comments here and telling me I can’t round up or because you say so 😂.

And it’s funny that you have used that argument against me previously about me “meeting celebs” but not posting pictures yet you also claimed to meet Stormzy on his page and you conveniently and quickly said “you can’t post the picture here on this site”. And that you’re a basketball player which I’ll reserve judgment on. Not worth it because Your thoughts speak for what type of poster you are since you are speaking of whether someone is legitimate or not. Talk is cheap. So like I said I’ll digress because I don’t believe that you actually take yourself or your very ignorant arguments seriously.

Thereel said on 27/Jan/20

Again I call bullsh*t because you despised Kobe and anyone who’s been here long enough knows it. You practically said it when you called him a horrible person. So don’t go saying you were a fan of his now after he passed. You wouldn’t have said any of this had he not passed away tragically like he did. You were the same one mocking him for being a bad person for “lying to a kid” about his height because he claimed 6’4” to him. But later said below that a person who measures 6’4 15/16 (Kobe actually measured 6’4.75) should claim and is considered 6’4”. So you obviously don’t believe what you say as is evidenced Among other things you said to me or in the past to others. But You don’t like when people call you on it is what it is and feel entitled due to your time here on the site. And then you even took to his rape charges, which were dropped and he was never convicted of, and which by the way have nothing to do with his height. So yep you said it well but about the Wrong person. You are not a legitimate poster here.

And by the way: “I don't consider you a legitamate poster anyways, the comment was more for everyone else on this board , (no offense).”

So if I’m not intended for the comment you posted, why was it addressed to Christian and Canson? And not just Christian and the rest of the board? And why did you say before that I’ve guessed a few celebs right in a previous post to me? Maybe you’re senile and forgot or you just don’t believe what you actually say? It probably was but now it
Sounds as if the tone has changed simply because I don’t say you’re right about all of it and differed in opinion.

3/4's isn't even worth counting and is even mathamatically closer to 1/2 then the 1nch, stop reaching canson, why dont you just go ahead and say 37 and three quarters the next time someone asks your age or just say 38 then?, problem thinking.

Oh and how is .75 closer to 1/2” than a full inch?

@Thereel: I think .75 is fair to round up. There’s enough of a difference between say 6’4 and 6’4.75.

no its not thats just a extra quarter inch on top of the half a inch, and yourself agree the quarter inches are negligible/impossible to notice, so go make the same argumument for half then, and as already stated the TINIEST differernces in posture will nock that 3/4 inch difference down to 3/8th's , you don't really expect "two people out in public" to be standing with the EXACT SAME POSTURE, really?, cmon Canson you should know this since you act all height aware, realisticly your going to have to get those two to go back to back, only then would you expect the two to match each others posture for a significant duration of time, although posture is the biggest variable, uneven flooring and hairstyle differences are also still signicant variables as well, BUT POSTURE IS THE BIGEST ONE VARIABLE, no two people are going to be standing with the exact same posture at one time, VERY RARELY, and even if they did it would likely only be for a very brief moment, (if they ever did at all of course,) ., 3/4's isn't even worth counting and is even mathamatically closer to 1/2 then the 1nch, stop reaching canson, why dont you just go ahead and say 37 and three quarters the next time someone asks your age or just say 38 then?, problem thinking. Kobe is not 6'4 he is 6'5. Or to be exact on the very top end of it, but he is not SIX-FOUR-ANYTHING IMAO, I tell you what show a picture of you and carmello anthony if you really what to sway my mind, talk is cheap and I don't consider you a legitamate poster anyways, the comment was more for everyone else on this board , (no offense).

Sorry Thereel but nobody here can take you seriously with some of the things you say here. You’re saying that a person who is 6’4.75 can’t round to 6’5? And also you accuse Kobe of being 6’5.75 yet have no evidence to back it up. This is after his wife measured him at 6’4.75. Rob even said that Rick Fox who clearly is taller than Kobe didn’t look The full 6’6” in person. I’m sure that if Kobe were that tall Rob would list him well over 6’5”. As far as Carmelo that’s fine If you don’t believe me I can really care less. But he’s also listed at his draft height here and that’s what he measured when drafted. And last but not least, you even brought his rape charges into the discussion previously as if it “had something to do with his height”. You mentioned that’s why you don’t believe him about his height and why you think he’s downplaying it? How silly does that sound? And You’re simply now doing this to be disrespectful for no reason. I’ll just end my discussion because obviously it’s going nowhere and you are just being childish and petty now due to me not agreeing with you when in reality I don’t because you are simply forcing your beliefs on everyone else here. I at least was being civil but it’s clear you can’t be. And I never said that you were wrong with you’re thinking. Obviously if differences are that close you stand them up together to measure back to back. I didn’t say any of that wasn’t true and you are simply acting as if I did and making something out of nothing here. I simply said that I don’t see an issue with someone rounding to 6’5 from 6’4.75. You see Cmillz said the same thing here but you didn’t say anything to him. So I see you are trying to start an argument which I don’t have the energy for at this point. Ok that’s fine if you feel that an inch covers etc. but fact is whether you or I like it, people do round up. And legitimate poster, I can’t take you seriously as one with the things you’ve said here. So if I am not a legitimate poster then why did you respond to this post or post to Christian and me? Sounds as if it is fine when someone is agreeing with “lamed brain” thinking that you accused me of but not when I’m not? And we’ve been down the path about age already. Didn’t I clearly say that I agree with you? Did you misunderstand what I said or are you unable to comprehend or just being childish at this point?

Canson I'm afraid i'm now starting to find you much too tedious , you demonstrate incredibly lame brained thinking to me, YOU CAN NOT ROUND HEIGHT. I never said it was ok to round a 1/16th learn to fricken read, I simply said you might get away with it under a stadiometer by doing the "bust a gut method" , or might measure 6'5" by taking glucosamine supplementation for a few weeks, if somehow you still measured the 6'4 15/16ths under the stadiometer after 8 hours out of bed, then he is not 6'5 he is 6'4, since your such a fan of rounding canson. I'm just going to go ahead and call you 38, just like my mum used to when I was a teenager and wanted me to grow up!, Youve made your bed now lay in it!, and dont when you get to 38 and 2/3rds I will just go ahead and round that up too!, its what you beleive in after all!

Thereel that was not really necessary. I actually was agreeing with most of what you said. Cmillz asked the question to you and I actually was supporting what you were saying and defended it. Not sure if you saw but I mentioned the thing about age as well and agree on it. All I said was my opinion about rounding up 1/4” only because That’s pretty customary. I didn’t say someone should or shouldn’t do it. All I said was that I don’t see an issue with it. I do wish that height were as cut and dry as she in that the 6’4-6’4.75 say were just 6’4 or we just use metric because of the amount of distance between say 6’4 (193) and 6’4.77 (195) and that doesn’t even cover the last .22”. Now as far as 15/16, I said that because it’s too close to 6’5” not to round up to the mark. But You said learn to frickin read?

Canson said on 7/Feb/20
@Cmillz: I agree with you with 15/16 but I think What Thereel is saying is a bit different. He’s saying inside of the whole number. And he is right about age. It’s funny when Someone claims say 6’2 1/2 it’s always something to round to 6’3” whether on them or on someone else’s behalf. And that’s if they want to claim it or not. In some cases they don’t. I’m one of them if I landed 1/4” taller I would just Claim 1/2 I wouldn’t care about rounding up. But when you say someone is 30 that is 28.5 or 29 and 4 months or 7 months it’s always an issue

Canson said on 5/Feb/20
@Thereel: I really like your thinking when it comes to the whole number

I also like your thought process when it comes to age. Because I’ve said that. It’s funny when people claim 5’11 1/2 someone will tell them to claim 6’0” or they will feel entitled to yet when you tell a person who is closer to a certain age that they balk at you

@Thereel: I think .75 is fair to round up. There’s enough of a difference between say 6’4 and 6’4.75. Now if you’re say 6’4 3/8 or 5/8, 6’4 1/2” I think is the better claim. I’m ok with someone who is 6’4.75 rounding to 6’4.5 although they’re fractionally closer to 6’5 just as a 6’4.25 guy rounding to 6’4.5” only difference is that 6’4.25 rounding to 6’4.5 will try to use that to bill themselves 6’5” on paper while someone who is 6’4.75 rounding to 6’4.5 will likely still be billed 6’5 on paper. I do agree with your logic however, regarding, the whole number logic
Thereel said on 8/Feb/20
Lool i gain 1/16th just by taking a big yawn, alot of us can gain 1/8th just simply by taking glucosamine supplementatiion, somehow I think the "6'4" 15/16ths guy is in the clear, if its 6'4 3/4 thats the problem, as you dont simply gain a 1/4 just simply by popping a glucosamine tablet, hell the 6'4 15/16ths guy could proberly gain a 1/16th by taking a sh**!, cmillz your just strenghthening my argument my guy!, and plus I dont think theres really any such way to track 1/16th inches so those guys most likely would get a pass, plus they could just do the bust a gut method to gain that 1/16th or 1/8th anyways, or just yawn and violla a 1/16th gained!
Thereel said on 7/Feb/20
A 3/4 inch IS VISIBLE (even in person) of course it is, its just that the slightest differences in posture beetween the two people would nock it down to a 3/8th and 1/4 inch differential, and boom you would no longer see it, hence why you really need to it to be a full inch+, beetween the two for there to look like a consistent visible differeintial, if you guys here actually get out and see people, that much should be obvious , once again if were talking about CONSISTENT VISIBLE HEIGHT DIFFEREINTIAL, a three quarter inch just won't do the trick, i'm sorry but its the truth

cmillz said on 7/Feb/20
Pretty dumb way of thinking. So if a guy is 6’4 15/16, then he should claim 6’4?
Canson said on 5/Feb/20
@Thereel: I really like your thinking when it comes to the whole number but at 6’4.75 and 6’4 flat you would see a difference. I generally see it at half most of the time. I think less is suspect but 3/8” maybe. Less than 3/8” is very difficult. 6’4.75 is ok for 6’5” imho. I know Christian is a proponent of 5/8-3/8 being an inch. I think 3/4-1/4 really and the 1/4-3/8 is kinda a grayer area same with 5/8-3/4. Half to me is afternoon height of 3/8-5/8”. If we want to call it the full inch then 7/8 onward. But the key is consistent and you’re right. I’ve seen a guy who is 6’5.5 that claims 6’5.5 and 6’6” and he appears shorter than me due to the poor posture. In reality he’s taller than me by at least an inch when he stands straight

I also like your thought process when it comes to age. Because I’ve said that. It’s funny when people claim 5’11 1/2 someone will tell them to claim 6’0” or they will feel entitled to yet when you tell a person who is closer to a certain age that they balk at you

Thereel said on 5/Feb/20
Oh and one thing a weak "6'5"" should be NOTHING UNDER SIX-FIVE!!! 195.58 cm's at WORST!!!, If someone isn't even SIX-FIVE! I don't quite know how your calling them a "weak" 6'5", you do realise to be what you call a "weak 6'5" YOU ACTUALLY WOULD NEED TO BE SIX-FIVE FIRST RIGHT?,when they actually get to bang on 6'5" then you can say weak until approximately 6'5 1/8th, then after the eighth or a quarter, I guess it could be solid or whatnot, up until the 1/2" mark then beginning at 6'5 1/2" it should be "strong" up until the number no longer has is a "5" in it, but is a "6", you see how that works #logic anything else is problem thinking
Thereel said on 4/Feb/20
to Christian and Canson and all it may concern important notice, this is how it works your either 6'5" or 6'4" it's either one or the other, 6'4 3/4's is just not a real height, I think you mean 6'4, CLUE if it's Six-four ANYTHING then it's Six-four, height like age is one of those that can't be rounded, if you saw two people in public near each other one being 6'4" and the over 6'4 3/4's I can assure you, you would not see consistent visible height differential in the 6'4 3/4 dudes favour, 3/4's of a inch can vanish EXTREMELY easily, especially between the very tall, who can casually drop 3cm's like it's nothing while still looking casually relaxed, slouching only starts to look really excessive at 4 CM'S+ when we talk about the very tall. I easily shrink down to my mates 6'4" height in pictures, in fact in a few pictures he looks a half inch taller if anything!, and with very similar footwear as well!, that's why most of you are wrong, oh that as well as your blatant cognitive biases which just come with being human I guess, it's still all love though
Canson said on 4/Feb/20
@Christian: right there’s no conceivable chance of that because he’s not as tall as Carmelo Anthony or Paul Pierce. He really just looked 6’4.75 max with either guy. If he really were 6’5.75” he’d be listed 6’7”. He was listed 6’7” for maybe a Couple years when Los Angeles still had Eddie Jones and Kobe played Small forward (and had the Afro). Kobe even mentioned early in his career only being 6’5 despite being listed 6’7”
Canson said on 2/Feb/20
@Jordan87: how tall are you? Didn’t you say you are 6’6?
Canson said on 2/Feb/20
Basketball sneaks add 1.25” generally or 1.5 in a thicker sole. Kobe was likely right at 6’6 in them or perhaps 6’6-6’6 1/8 range making him 6’4.75 or 6’4.75-6’5 range without them. The 6’4.75 looks pretty accurate as an afternoon height. If we are talking lunchtime maybe 6’4 7/8”. Rob doesn’t always list at a lunchtime height even tho that’s the standard. Many are listed at combine measurements which are early morning some at afternoon heights like Kobe. But unfortunately you have people here who challenge his measurement being too low and not the combine measurements which are explicitly said to be morning or they argue that he “was measured at night” when night and afternoon height are Usually the same. Rob also claims his afternoon height 5’8 1/8” as 5’8.25 is his lunchtime if he’s not active
Canson said on 1/Feb/20
@Leif: only on this site does that matter due to the precision of guessing heights. Otherwise it doesn’t. But time of the day does matter.
Beej said on 1/Feb/20

No, he wasn't. (unless you meant to type 6'4 3/4" but made a typo and typed 5)
Canson said on 29/Jan/20
6’5 3/4 is impossible next to Carmelo who was 6’6” in person. Looks max 6’5 with other players. As listed 6’4.75.

@Mickie: I’d give him 6’4.75 over 6’4.5. I’d give 6’4.5 to Michael Jordan though

@Anon11: he can look 6’5” but at 6’4.75 barefoot he’s 6’6” in his sneaks so looking 6’5 barefoot is realistic for him. The 6’4.75 is more than likely him measuring in the afternoon meaning lunchtime could’ve been 6’4 7/8” and perhaps 6’5.5” out of bed

@Ian C: I disagree on something you said. I have a couple of friends now who are either marginally shorter than their wife/girlfriend or are several inches shorter. They don’t have the money, status etc. it was purely love
Ian C. said on 13/Dec/19
Odd that he would have a short wife. Kobe would have had a lot of buying power on the marriage market-that is, he would have had a good selection of available mates, so height couldn't have meant much to him as a criterion for choosing a wife. I have always thought that most people choose marriage partners who share their general personal characteristics, and tall people tend to marry similarly tall people. When a short man ends up with a taller wife it is because he has money and status that make up for the gap in height. But maybe vert tall men don't really care how tall their wives are, because all women are shorter than they are anyway.
Canson said on 10/Dec/19
@Joe: I wonder if Ball is really 6’4.5. JT met him and said 6’4” and he looks short with Magic and Brandon Ingram who turned out to only be 6’7” range. Ingram’s measurement shocked me as I figured minimum 6’8” but that makes sense being Kuzma measured 6’8 at the combine (6’7.5 likely for his afternoon) and he could sometimes look taller than Ingram or the same height
Canson said on 10/Dec/19

@Canson At home measuring myself with a flat box over my head in the bathroom facing the wall, I measure around 6’4.75 take or give a little during any point of the afternoon or night.
Dillon Rice said on 6/Dec/19
@Canson So if I shrink down at close to your rate, I would be a little less than 6’4.5 by the end of the day. I wish I had a stadiometer like Rob’s to measure myself rather than the old fashioned way cause I’m almost always measured less at the doctor’s.
Canson said on 5/Dec/19
@Dillon: I actually tried it last night when I had been on my feet all day. I got down to exactly 6’4” from what it appeared whereas I wake to 6’5 1/16.
Canson said on 22/Nov/19
@Joe: very fair!
Canson said on 19/Nov/19
@Dillon: could be the way you’re measuring too
joe### said on 17/Nov/19
Canson
Maybe 194.6cm for dillon.
Canson said on 16/Nov/19
@Joe: he may lose more than the average guy. His size. Or it may be because he is on his feet and measuring so maybe 6’4.5 at an extreme low. I would be a flat 6’4 at mine and wake up 6’5”. But 6’4.25 is my real afternoon height even tho I claim 6’4 as my height
Dillon Rice said on 16/Nov/19
@Canson Also I have a very long upper body. Not super long legs. So most of my height is in my spine.
Dillon Rice said on 15/Nov/19
@joe### agreed
Dillon Rice said on 15/Nov/19
@Canson I measure taller at home then at doctor’s office so that accounts for that discrepancy. I think 6’4.5 is the honest claim for me. 6’5 seems too high and 6’4 too low.
joe### said on 14/Nov/19
Dillon
yes you are probably a solid 6'4.5.
Canson said on 14/Nov/19
@Dillon: that doesn’t sound right. If 6’5.5 out of bed you should still be 6’5 two hours after waking. Maybe 6’4.5-.75 really 6’4.75 at a normal low. I’m half inch shorter out of bed 6’5 and I’m 6’4.25 afternoon height. I only hit 6’4 flat at an extreme low.
Dream said on 13/Nov/19
@Canson

For sure!
Dillon Rice said on 12/Nov/19
I measured myself at about 6’4.8 and about 6’4.6, 2 1/2 hrs out of bed at the doctor’s office. Idk why the measurements were so different, but clearly I’m a weak 6’5 at very best. I think 6’4.5 is probably my best bet in terms of what I should claim when asked.
Canson said on 12/Nov/19
@Viper: always possible he’s 6’4.8 and Jordan 6’4.4-.5 range. They don’t look that far apart but prob CM. To be honest I buy 1/4”. It looked more maybe later in Jordan’s career. Carter looks to have more on Jordan than Kobe does and Carter is shorter than Dr J

6’4.5 MJ
6’4,75 Kobe
6’5 or 6’5 1/8 Vince Carter

@Canson I’m 6’4.6 at the end of days where I come back from moderate to heavy basketball in the evening. I’m kinda in that area where I don’t know what to claim. I’ve claimed both 6’4 and 5 on multiple occasions. I’m 6’5.5 ish out of bed.
viper said on 11/Nov/19
He could be bang on 6-5.

Jordan is 6-4.5
Canson said on 11/Nov/19
@Dillon: I thought you were a legit 6’5
Canson said on 10/Nov/19
@Dream: my estimates:

Kobe 6’4.75 as listed
Vince Carter 6’5 (at times he looks taller than Kobe) 6’5 1/8 max
MCW my height maybe 6’4 3/8 best case or in between the two
Burnham anywhere between 196-197 6’5.25-.5
MWP 6’5.25-.5
Dream said on 10/Nov/19
@Canson

True too. I think if anything, Metta World Peace is definitely taller than Kobe. A slouching Bo Burnham even looks taller than Kobe Bryant, with Michael Carter Williams. Vince Carter also looks a bit taller than Kobe. Those three reasons are why, I think Kobe isn't 197 cm.
Dillon Rice said on 9/Nov/19
@rob I’m about 6’4 5/8 after 6 1/2 hrs out of bed after playing 1.5 hrs of basketball, and a lot of standing.
Editor Rob
Maybe that is Kobe's extreme lowest measurement too.
Dillon Rice said on 9/Nov/19
@rob If I’m 6’5 1/8 about an hour and a half out of bed, would I be a legit 6’5 or 6’4?
Editor Rob
I think it's enough that you could call yourself 6ft 5, but of course you might fall a big fraction underneath it by night.
Canson said on 7/Nov/19
@Dream: Manning would prob be 6’5 afternoon height. That surprises me that he’s close to his listing tho. He can look 6’5.25 at times. Manning looks taller than Kobe at times but other times no. But I’d say 6’5-6’5.25 for him 6’4.75 Kobe as listed.

@Viper: combine yes but afternoon 6’4.75 fits. Maybe he is more 6’4.8-.85 and his wife rounded down. 1/3” taller than Jordan. He didn’t look 1/2” taller
Canson said on 7/Nov/19
@Viper and Junior: my opinion is his 6’4.75 would be afternoon and 6’5 1/8 or 6’5.25 would be the combine height like Viper said. I doubt 6’4.75 is his extreme low.he looks shorter than Vince Carter and Carter is only 6’5”. 6’5.5 is his combine and Carter was slightly shorter than Dr J. It’s possible Kobe could see 6’4.5 at an extreme low. Thus going by afternoon heights Rob has him listed fine. Going by midday (5 hours out of bed) maybe he should get 6’4 7/8 but not 6’5” I doubt. But if there ever were a celeb accurately listed I think Kobe would be it along with maybe Carmelo Anthony. Melo is within 1/4” of his
viper said on 5/Nov/19
He flat out looks 6-5
Canson said on 5/Nov/19
@Roderick: he claims 6’4.5 but his wife measured him 6’4.75. I would take the latter for him and 6’4.5 for Jordan as mentioned before. Neither guy is 6’5 flat I doubt.
Roderick said on 3/Nov/19
I won't lie, if it weren't for his 6'4" claims/measurements at 6'4.75", I would have said 6'5".
viper said on 1/Nov/19
I'd upgrade Kobe and downgrade Barkley
viper said on 1/Nov/19
I think he's 6-4.75 at his lowest.

I'd upgrade him to that.

Agree with Rob he would measure 6-5.25 at combine
Dream said on 1/Nov/19
@Dillion Rice

Kobe’s eye level is higher, but Peyton Manning’s top head is higher, meaning Peyton’s taller, but people always go by eye levels.
Dillon Rice said on 31/Oct/19
@Dream So Manning isn’t 6’5?
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Oct/19
Rob, not sure if i ask this before but to be fair that if you think of how Kobe apear all the time easily to be 6'5 with every celebrities (not nba teammates) although his wife claim him to be only 6'4 3/4 while highly suspicious have thought of its a height in the evening/night which make no difference for an absolutely low range so i wonder would you still consider to upgrade him to 6'5?
Editor Rob
If he got 6ft 4.75 I think it would be later in the day. At a combine, maybe he could be a solid 6ft 5
Nils2 said on 31/Oct/19

Starting to question he's truly under 6'5. How do we know for sure that his wife measured his height the right way?
Canson said on 27/Oct/19
@Wingspanpro: Wade is overlisted. I know people who have met him that say he’s best case a solid 6’3”. Maybe 6’2.5-6’3 really. I’ve met Butler. He’s 6’5”. Derozan is 6’5” according to someone who’s met him that I know. Draymond ditto. 6’5”. Pierce weak 6’6 like 6’5.75 next to Brady
Canson said on 27/Oct/19
@Wingspanpro: I have Carter at 6’5”. 6’5.5 is likely rounded up and earlier In the day. And like Viper said kobe wouldn’t lose 1.25” in a day at that size under normal conditions. My best guess for Kobe is 6’5.5 out of bed and 6’4.75 afternoon. Carter maybe 6’5.75-6 out of bed 6’5-5.25 afternoon

@Viper: Kobe can look it but then you see him with Carter and Carter looks taller by a smidgeon at times. Carter wasn’t as tall as Dr J either.

I take Vanessa Bryants measurement with a grain of salt. Aside from the fact we don't know what time of day she measured him at, do we really believe she was particularly accurate or scientific with how she took down his height?

I can buy Kobe at 6'4.75" but I can buy him at a little over 6'5" as well.

Afternoon height and evening height don’t really vary. If we’re talking a lunchtime and an afternoon it’s maybe 1/8” as Rob has also said. A lot of people have said if he was measured at night but then if that’s the case we would need to attack the combine measurements that occur early morning

@Junior: I guess we wont. But she did say one day at home. But I agree that could mean night. My guess based on how he looks with Lebron or Carmelo or Gronk is that it was afternoon. He looks 1” shorter than Gronk 1.25-1.5 shorter than Melo and 2 or so than Lebron
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Oct/19
@Canson We wouldn't know Vanessa measure him at night tho. Under 195cm absolute low is like head scratching.
Canson said on 10/Oct/19
@Junior: I agree with a lot of what you said but I doubt Kobe’s “extreme low” is that. Maybe 6’4 5/8 best case or .5. His normal low may be more 195-195.2 and maybe he was rounded down but he really does look 6’4.75 next to 6’2.25 Russell Westbrook. Next to them Draymond Green looks max 6’5”. There are other pics of Green and he looks maybe a CM taller than Kobe. Lol Steve Kerr said that he’s 6’2 1/2 and that Green is only 2” taller than him. Kerr looks shorter than Curry at times and was only listed 6’1” at points of his career then 6’3” at other times. Curry also claims 6’2 3/4” barefoot now which is a joke. Both guys are claiming shoe heights. 6’1.25 and 6’1.5 respectively
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Oct/19
@Canon Zoom in and take a look again. Stop a line on Kobe's head and check the difference towards MCD head it's clearly 3cm but please understand what i mean the picture tilt down a little from MCD side which may vary a 1/4 to 1/2" shorter for him. Kobe may easily edge him 2cm not 3cm and Rob had admit that MCD could be as low as 6'4. It's not the shoes, heavier issues make MCD lower or Kobe posture. There are more picture of them to check out on google. Kobe extreme low is 6'4 3/4 we can take it and MCD isn't a problem for flat 6'4 although Rob given a 1/4 more for him that just not a lowest height for MCD.
Canson said on 9/Oct/19
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Oct/19
Rob, You can see the difference between Kobe and Michael Clarke Duncan here isn't under 3cm Click Here so how could MCD listed at 6'4 1/4 and Kobe 1/2 inch taller? I understand picture tilt a little down from MCD side from the background doorway line on the wall but there is more chance 2cm between them than 1/2". Maybe the late MCD is always 6'4?

@Junior: that is not a 3cm difference between them. That’s max 1”. Possibly is just a 2cm difference. And posture wise how do we know MCD is standing his fullest and not losing 1/4”? Kobe usually has good posture from what I see. A heavier guy like MCD may not but a MCD in 04 may have been 6’4” flat. But guess what we can’t see? Footwear. If Kobe has thicker shoes then that may explain it

As far as Draymond Green, I doubt the pre draft was accurate for him. You didn’t see any other coaches out their saying that a guy who measured 6’5.75 was only 6’5” like Alvin Gentry and Kerr said about Green. And they didn’t measure them in the afternoon. It was likely also in the morning. They are aware that players are shorter in the afternoon or after practicing and working out. Maybe he was 6’5.25 a couple hours out of bed as opposed to one but I’d say 6’5 to 5 1/8” as opposed to 6’5 1/4” at a low. But Draymond is even less if that was early morning that he got 6’5” flat. I never would’ve thought it but draymond May be a weak 6’5”. I do see pics where he and Kobe are the same or Kobe taller than Draymond so it’s inconclusive in some. Others he is taller. You also see what I’ve said all along about Isaiah Thomas he said he was 5’8” and that’s what he turned out to be. Most measurements in the NBA this season aren’t less than the person measured at their pre draft except for Green and Thomas. A lot are actually higher which I find even more odd because not that many people grow after 18 and many of the ones they said grew don’t look any taller than they were when drafted. Look at Jaylen Brown for example. His measurement shows taller than he was when he was drafted. I see 6’6” in some places 6’5,5 in others for the 2019 official and he was 6’5.25 when drafted. Morning height of course for both. Just goes to show we can’t trust pre draft measurements very much. Food for thought for Green. He was undersized for a big forward so they likely boosted his measurement some. 6’7” at the time was deemed short for a power forward. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he were really just 6’5.25 early morning when he was drafted and is only 6’4.75 or 7/8 now that I see this
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Oct/19

@Canson What if Draymond was atually 6'5 1/4? He got his drafted measurement at 6'5 3/4 w/o shoes and i know it's morning height so ho can he be 2cm lower than that atual measurement? 196cm is the worst i could think of him.

@Questioner
It's very possible that Wade's 6'3.75" wasn't an error, but rather a round up from 6'3 5/8" (as the NBA combine doesn't bother with 8th fractions) and Wade measured that in the morning and lost 3/4" and is only 6'2 7/8" at his low. I'm more inclined to believe that it wasn't an error.
Canson said on 10/Sep/19
Questioner said on 7/Sep/19
@canson also in the first pic you linked it kind of looked like carmelos right side was tilted in front of kobe possibly gaining a slight fraction. lebron isnt really 6'7.25"... I agree I do think hes 6'7" and possibly 6'7 and 1/8" though however I do respect an argument of 6'6 7/8 and even 75 though I dont go that low

Melo is minimum 3cm taller in each pic. I didn’t see a tilt in any of them to be honest. The diff could even be 3.5-4
Canson said on 9/Sep/19
Questioner said on 7/Sep/19
@canson wades measurement cant be an error as there is no way he is only 6'2.75" early morning the only conceivable error is 6'3.25" morning but even then id be surprised if hes that low it seems he has a long torso which can lead to a lot of variation I do agree though wades only solid 6'3" at most hes listed to high here

I’m not sure if they were early morning that year. Carmelo looked close enough to his height in person so did A couple others I met and Lebron does on tv at least. But even if it’s held later in the day, what’s stopping someone from laying down to gain height. Lots of people do. They will even get carried in from time to time. Wade may just be 6’2.75” at a low. Wade doesn’t look to have an overly long torso imho

Questioner said on 7/Sep/19
@canson I dont know if your directing this at me but I never said kobe is 6'5+ i told you my personal estimate is 6'4 7/8" as .75 is the lowest I can see him and 5/8 the lowest I see on a bad height day

Where did I say anything about 6’5+? I’m directing it at people who challenge the measurement. Not saying he can’t be 6’5” if he were undermeasured. I’m saying people take that escape route instead of saying someone else isn’t as tall as listed
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Sep/19
@Questioner
6'5" isn't that bad of an estimate, but 6'5.5" is taking things too far, that's inflating IMO. I've seen a few posters claim that Kobe's 6'5.5"

@canson kobe looks no shorter than lebron in this while he of course isnt this tall it shows you shouldnt call people inflators when they say kobe might be 6'5" Click Here

I don’t think I’ve ever said once that his wife may not have mismeasured him. That is possible But the fact is, like Christian said on Zachary Levi’s page, he has a measurement of 6’4.75” and it’s crazy people attack someone saying possibly being taller than they’re measurement when they are likely very accurate (at their afternoon height) and don’t challenge the claims of people who weren’t. And keep in mind that height varies throughout the day so how do we know that Lebron is really 6’7.25” at a low? I know he does not look to have an inch on Carmelo Anthony who in person looked at most what he’s listed here if not just 6’6” worst case. Pre draft measurements, as Rob already mentioned, will never be at a low. However this site is at a low. And while we are on the subject of “inflators”, why is it that people don’t “believe” Kobe or Barkley’s measurements yet they believe the “listed” heights of celebrities who have yet to be give a “detailed” exact measurement like these two were measured at.

That may be more than just a 1.5” difference between he and Wade. It’s really looking about 2”. And Kobe measured 6’4.75”. Wade’s measurement was likely an error or it was taken very early morning (or even rounded up slightly) and he is only a solid 6’3” which is about as high as he can really look.

I agree! Another question is this:

Let's assume Kobe is somewhere like 6'4.75"-6'5", which seems very possible.

Where does that leave Bo Burnham and Michael Carter Williams, in your opinion? Since there is a comparison between the two.
Editor Rob
I still put Bo over 6ft 5, I doubt he will measure less than his listing, but then Kobe also I think is only going to be 6ft 4.5 at midnight after a bad day.


@Rob: if that’s (6’4.75”) his normal low I agree 100% that 6’4.5” is probably his extreme low. He doesn’t look less than 6’4.75” but on a few occasions and usually with Jordan since they look the same at times or he can look shorter here and there

Was doing pre-match PR for Roger Federer and Dan Evans' match at the US Open yesterday. Roger was stooping a bit, and with the stoop he looked 3.5 to 4 inches shorter. So that's 6 ft 5 maximum without the stoop. From that, I'd go for 6 ft 4 1/4 - 6 ft 4 3/4.

Questioner said on 26/Aug/19
@canson is 6'4 & 7/8 posssible I wonder if when his wife measured him that was what he was but because a lot of people dont even know 8ths of inches she just said .75 because it still was slightly under the 5 mark im saying this because kobe looks a legit 6'5" a lot of times and occasionally over it. I think this is low on a bad day or an extreme low and maybe on a bad height day coupled with hitting an extreme low he might be the 5/8 mark but normally the 7/8 mark is his low
Canson said on 26/Aug/19
@Junior: Kobe isn’t any higher than he’s listed. Look at him with 6’7” (peak) Phil Jackson who is in flip flops and he’s in sneaks. It’s a good chance Jackson was not even the full 6’7” when that picture was shot in 09 or 10. He was in his 60s then and even had had hip replacement

Kobe need an upgrade if MJ and CB both still listed higher than him! 6'5 i would think is the perfect shout and i don't care what he messing his all height claim 6'4-6'6. Nobody sees an atual measurement to proof anything on Kobe's height it's just all plain guessings and non stop comments plus quotes. Also if Michael Strahan 6'4 1/4 so trusted by Rob then 6'5 1/4 should goes to Kobe for a listing not 6'4 3/4. Also Kobe edge out MJ so he deserved upgrade from a longtime ago.

I would suggest a 1.5” difference probably. With DJ I see 2” but with DJ we aren’t sure if that’s his low. Melo I’ve seen up close and he’s At least 6’6”. In the pic wit him DJ and Blake I’m not seeing less than 2” is all I was saying and that is also in how far their shoulders are from each other. Their necks aren’t much different to compensate for that. Blake really doesn’t look like he’s as tall as the bigger power forwards in the league. He doesn’t have much height (if any) on Kevin Love who many say is only 6’7” in person. Love likely was measured at (equivalent) to a morning height meaning he likely laid around prior to being measured being 2008 was an afternoon measurement. I have heard stories all the time from guys who have played and been to the combine about people wearing enhanced footwear or socks and also even being carried inside or even laying down prior to the measurement. It’s no secret that players are going for money so they will do that

Canson, you win. LOL. But reality there isn't over 1.5" apart where i knew this from someone over 6'7 met them several times.

@Junior: his hair wasn’t thick for the combine. That’s correct but in the picture it was thick. That’s for sure a solid 2. Look at if DJ straightens his head out and Blake comes up 2” above the mid eyebrow. In addition, look at Their shoulders. But also at how small he looks next to DJ. Not small but how much shorter. And other pics of them it’s the same. He routinely looks 2” shorter than him

@Junior: it’s def still a 2” difference between Jordan and Blake. Maybe not more but it’s a solid 2”. Also look at Carmelo and Blake. Blake is not 2” or even 1.75” taller than Melo.

@Editor Rob Click Here if you zoom in photo this comparison is more on 1.5"?

@Canson You zoom in the picture and take another look, Blake had a longer andd bigger head size than DeAndre that disadvantages on Blake side. It brings out 2" illusion when small head helps the taller one look even taller than his measure height. Blake's hair wasn't as thick as you think, Click Here look here he might have pointed head on the tip of his head. Like Kobe and Metta's head. Blake's eye level look at least 1/8 low sets than DeAndre smaller head proportion eye level Click Here.

@184guy: he was measured at 6’8.5 though not 6’8.75. That wasn’t too long out of bed either so chances are he may have lost up to 1/4” tops. He woke up at 624 am on the video and was in the gym so chances are it was within the first half hour which the most someone loses by that stage is up to 1/4” maybe even a bit less. Some guys lose 1/4” after a full hour. And for a guy his size that’s possible to dip another .75 since someone his size can lose an inch. Also one thing I always point out is that when you measure they don’t do 1/8” increments so it’s always possible it was 6’8 3/8 as opposed to half. I only put him under the mark because he doesn’t add up with DeAndre Jordan Caron Butler around 6’5” in person or a few others I’ve mentioned such as Jamal Crawford and also Carmelo Anthony who is around 6’6” when I saw him. He doesn’t have 2” on Melo. That said 6’8” is max for him whereas a weak 6’8” is very possible. See the article below. All players mentioned at UnC measured 1/2” or 3/4” taller than they did the year before strictly because it was held in the morning. Blake is even taller than they are so he stands to lose more. If it weren’t that early it wouldn’t have resulted in as much loss for the players as it did.

@Junior: looking at the shoulders and head altogether that’s at least 2” between them. Blake doesn’t have 3” on Caron Butler who is 6’5 in person and Carmelo who is what Rob lists him or a hair under no less than 6’6”. He doesn’t have 2” on him either. Jordan has a bit more height on Blake than Blake does on Melo. 6’8” would be an absolute max vs minimum he could be

@Canson
Under 6'8 for Blake it's pretty unrealistic since he was measured 6'8.75 NOT straight out of bed , he wasn't measured at his hotel room ...
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Jul/19
Click Here 4cm dead end from head to head. DeAndre 207cm and Blake 203cm. 6'8 is the absolute min unlike Christopher London listed 6'8 look 6'7 with Blake.
