How tall is Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant's Height

6ft 4 ¾ (194.9 cm)

American retired basketball player, who played for 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" and also joked with a kid that "Everyone thinks I'm 6 feet 7 inches tall. But just between you and me, I'm really 6-4.". In another article from 2008 it quoted him saying "I'm probably 6-5 in sneaks," and that his wife "had prodded him by saying she suspected the same thing - and measured her husband at home one day at 6-4 3/4."

I'm 5'4" and Kobe is 6'4" and 3/4 to be exact. 😊I know this because I didn't think he was as tall as the announcer said he is so I measured him (without shoes) however, he is 6'6" with his Nikes on. - Vanessa Bryant

Dear Rob,watching the following pics,what is the height difference between kobe,draymond green and russell westbrook?
What is your guess on them?

That moment about 2 inches or so between Kobe and Russell...draymond not much taller but might lose a bit in posture.

@Junior
Kinda surprised that Rob hasn't given Kobe a 1/4" upgrade to 6'5" yet, especially when considering he's already given a 1/4" upgrade for Russ. IMO the upgrade wasn't necessary.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Feb/19
Kobe look 6'5 with Russ. Go by listing.
Canson said on 19/Feb/19
@Rob: you can also make a case for 6’4.5 or 6’4 5/8 for Jordan easily. You’ve seen the Olympic picture with Larry bird where it’s a solid 4.5” difference considering how large Bird’s forehead is. But the difference with him versus another 6’4.5 listed guy is that he wouldn’t drop below that during the day whereas another guy listed that way may dip to 6’4 3/8 or perhaps 6’4 1/3”. Jordan may be a mm or two above at maybe 194.5. But 6’4.5 in my opinion just means that they fall into the 6’4 3/8-5/8 category at a low which is where I feel Jordan will fall especially whenever Pat Riley said that is what he was when he was drafted and Riley has met him before many times and spent considerable time around him. But I do believe 6’4.75 is a better listing than a full 6’5”. I just don’t believe that that would be a low for him being many have guessed him lcloser to 6’4”. I think he’d measure similar to Joe Mangianello or Tim Robbins who claimed 6’4.5 as well but is likely as low as he gets. Meaning the trio would likely be weak 6’5 guys as opposed to the other 6’4.5 listed guys who really would be strong 6’4” as they drop below the mark

Canson said on 16/Feb/19
@Rob: Kobe looks slightly taller next to Russ than Jordan does. I doubt Jordan was ever a full 6’5” probably 6’4.5 barefoot 6’5.75 in basketball sneaks to get the 6’6 listing

Editor Rob
I know you can make a case for Jordan at 6ft 4.75.
Canson said on 15/Feb/19
@Rob: they look pretty close to Russ’s pre draft and Kobe’s listing here 6’2.25 vs 6’4.75. I doubt Russ grew since being drafted. More than likely he’s even a hair less than 6’2.25 than over that mark

@Viper: if it’s early morning he may end up over 6’6”
Luca said on 14/Feb/19
Dear Rob,looking at the following pic what's your guess on russell westbrook and kevin durant?
Kobe and Russell are both wearing similar elegant shoes,while kd is barefoot

Editor Rob
Kobe looks nearly 3 inches taller - harder to say with kevin because of him looking near camera but with no shoes...
Shashank-6'3 3/8 said on 8/Feb/19
Kobe could get a solid 6'5. A very strong 195 guy in my opinion.
Canson said on 31/Jan/19
@Viper: it has to be later In the day. Combine is 6am. It could just be a matter of the player going straight to it and them sleeping or laying down longer since there’s prob nothing preceding it in terms of a drug test etc
viper said on 30/Jan/19
Raekwon Davis somehow looks taller there.

I think he will measure somewhere 6-6 at this years combine and pro day.
viper said on 30/Jan/19
Last year Mason Rudolph had a wide range.

6-4.1, 6-4.3, 6-4.5
viper said on 30/Jan/19
Pro day later in the day doesn't make sense. Maybe some are.

It's just usually the highest measurements.

Then you have exceptions like Tyus Bowser measuring his lowest of 6-2.3 at his pro day.
Canson said on 28/Jan/19
@Viper: that’s odd because the Pro Day is later in the day than the combine. There’s something wrong with that if it’s the case. The senior bowl and Combines mirror each other now a days. Carson Wentz measured the same at both of his 6’5.25.
viper said on 27/Jan/19
Senior bowl measurements seem to be earlier now, but I have found they are usually a little shorter than combine.

And especially pro day.

Buggs could be an exception measuring
6-2.3 at the combine or pro day.
Canson said on 24/Jan/19
@Viper: thing is the Senior bowl measurements appear to take place early morning now too judging by how close they are to combine measurements almost identical. Baker mayfield measured 1/4” lower but because his was done at a later time due to the family emergency he had
viper said on 23/Jan/19
Isaih Buggs is a measured 6-2.5

@Christian

Honestly, I wouldn’t put Kobe under 6’4.625”. At the same time, Metta World Peace and Bo Burnham edged out Kobe Bryant—latter going by comparison with MCW and Jordan Peele.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 17/Jan/19
Worst case for him is 6'4.5" IMO. And the best case would be 6'4 7/8".
Canson said on 17/Jan/19
@Monkey knees: most guys do. Michael Jordan has admitted that Barkley is 6’4 range before and that they’re the same height yet he also claims 6’6”. Both are roughly 6’4.5. That’s how I can tell Wade is not as tall as they say. He has even said he’s 6’4” on a very good day. A guy measuring over 6’3” wouldn’t be saying that. That’s for a guy struggling to make 6’3” or barely making it. As for Kobe I’ve never ruled 6’4.5 out. KROC was a poster here and claimed 6’5-6’5.25 and has said he had Kobe by half inch and that Kobe is weak 6’5 which could mean 6’4 5/8 possibly even. Someone I know had met Kobe says he’s 6’5. Same person said Wade is 6’2.5-6’3 which is how he looks and how KROC guessed Wade as well.
Monkey knees said on 17/Jan/19
Bryant always seemed to float between appearing 6ft 4.5in/6ft 4.75in. For tall guys, NBA players always seem to pump more height on themselves. Do they quote sneaker height as their actual height?
Ian555 said on 16/Jan/19
Yeah Rob I would have to agree with you. Kobe is definitely above 6' 4" and in photos with Dwyane Wade and Michael Clarke Duncan, it looks like his height is probably about 6' 4.75" maybe even 6' 5". My dad said he's actually 5' 11.5" and said Kobe was like 5 inches taller than him.
Canson said on 16/Jan/19
@Rob: a 6’4 estimate isn’t far fetched if Ian’s dad had footwear advantage on him. Also possible Kobe isn’t quite as high as the listing here or that he was at an extreme low
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Jan/19
@Ian555

It's a bit low of a guess, but not bad at all. Some of Jordan and Barkley's teammates and coaches and others refer to them as 6'4".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Jan/19
@Canson

Yeah, the difference between Kobe and Will looks more 3.5" than just 3".
Ian555 said on 13/Jan/19
Rob my dad who is about 5’ 11” ran into Kobe one time a few years ago and said he looked like he was 6’ 4” to him.
Editor Rob
Disown him 😂
Canson said on 12/Jan/19
@Junior: hard to tell because he’s wearing a hat. Kobe could have more than just 3” which I suspect he does. I would say Kobe is ok but Smith should be 6’1” which is the most he’s ever looked to me when he was on Fresh Prince
Ian555 said on 12/Jan/19
Rob would 6’ 4” be a possibility or is that too low?
Editor Rob
If Kobe was 6ft 4 flat, I think we'd all need to knock an inch off our own claims. 😁

over my dead body! 🤬
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Jan/19
Click Here: only picture Kobe look 6'4 with 6'1-ish Will Smith. But the picture wasn't a good one.

Click Here: 187cm Novak Djokovic had Smith by 2-2.5cm. It only prove there is no way Will Smith was 6'2 as he claim not even close to 6'1 1/2.
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
@Dream: lol I remember Junior saying he measured him 198.5cm afternoon. In that case he’s pretty much clear as day 6’6”. Now I could see if he were slightly under 198 and then measured a different time at an extreme low and got closer to 197 or even a mm less but being a solid 6’6 or more and saying that is crazy. To be fair he may be ashamed of it. But he’s no different than someone who is less than their claim claiming to be an inch or two higher.and same fashion because I’m sure a guy who can’t measure say 6’0” when he claims it would do the same thing and argue that he’s really 6’0” when he measured 5’11 in front of witnesses. It’s just Junior’s friend would get more heat because it’s downward and not inflation which is “acceptable” in society sadly enough. Notice how often you’ll see two people around and they compare heights one will claim to be say 6’0 and the other 6’0 who really is. The taller of the two will usually be told he’s 6’1” especially if women are judging them and can’t gauge. For some reason it’s complimentary to tell honest person they’re taller than they are which is very insulting in my eyes than to tell a liar they aren’t as tall as they claim. Hence this height inflation we have
Dream said on 8/Jan/19
@Canson I’m not sure if it’s the same person, but I have a distinct feeling it is the same person.

When I busted out the measuring tape and remembered the top of his head, I thought to myself “How the fook could he be only 6’5”?! He’s clearly taller than that!”

@Dream: so your neighbor is 6’6/6’7 claiming 6’5? Lol. I remember junior said he had a friend that did that. I could see it if someone falls to maybe 6’5 1/2 or a bit more but that’s crazy. I very rarely see that
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Trevor M: the only times I’ve seen that degree of it is in Wrestling or baseball. You do have some basketball players that list at 6’11 that are 6’7-6’8” . I saw one in the 90s that was listed 6’9 that was 6’5-6’6 barefoot but with Charles Barkley being 6’4.5 himself a 6’5.5 guy being an inch taller could play the 4. The guy I’m referring to is Jeff Turner from the Magic. But a 6’2 guy listing at 6’6 wouldn’t cut it since a 6’6 listed guy will play 3 in addition to 2 and it would be obvious. I know Tyreke Evans was measured early morning 6’4” and doesn’t look more than 6’3 range on the court probably 6’3.5 and he’s listed 6’6” same with Gerald Wallace he was listed 6’7” as was Kobe yet both are 6’4.5-6’5
Dream(5'9.5") said on 6/Jan/19
@Trevor M



I usually use the measurement tape. Often, I memorize where the marks of a certain measurement goes.

That 6'10"-6'11" guy I saw in person? Easily, he gave a taller impression than Tyler Mane (6'8" peak) and Michael Kingma (listed 6'9.5"), based on what I saw in person and knowing Rob is 5'8 1/8". He's very much taller than everyone I'm going to list on this one comment:

The 6'6"-6'7" neighbor? I busted out my measurement tape. Based on what I saw in person, he is sky-north of 6'5" and he may well be around 6'6", and that's also considering his posture being 2/10 (very bad slouching), and he had less footwear (flat flip-flops) than me and my dad.

The roughly 6'6.75"-6'7" high school teacher? He was edged out by the Chinese guy who looked likes me. He is visibly taller than everyone in my high school, even the students who are around 6'4" and 6'5".

The 6'7"-6'8" who looks like me but dwarfs me in person? He is easily taller than the 6'6"-6'7" neighbor of mine and he edged out my high school teacher.

I could go on for the list, but don't always rely on impressions. The measurement tape is your best friend.
Canson said on 3/Jan/19
@Christian: very true! Pro Wrestling even bills higher than 3-4” in some cases.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Jan/19
@Canson

But typically NBA and other basketball leagues don't inflate that much. That's primarily pro wrestling.
Canson said on 31/Dec/18
@Christian: I definitely believe 3”. We had a couple on our team that were. One guy on my team was 5’11.5-6’0 probably tops and was listed 6’2” on our team and 6’3 in high school at one stage but 6’2 being listed 6’6” is a bit out there especially basketball although Brad Brach was listed 6’6 and was 6’2.5-6’3
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 30/Dec/18
@Canson

3 inch inflations in sports aren't uncommon nowadays though. Maybe it was 15 or so years ago when you played in college.
Dream said on 30/Dec/18
@Canson

The only times one can think of someone being overlisted by 4 inches is when someone is sky north over 7’0”. (Like 7’2”-7’3” being guessed at 7’6”.) Then, I can see why that’s the case since 7’0”ers or higher are nigh-impossible to find, no matter where anyone lives.
Dream said on 29/Dec/18
@Canson

Honestly, I find Trevor’s claim to be sketchy. A 6’2” guy doesn’t give the same impression of a 6’6” guy.

Even if his claims were true, I’ve met ‘a lot’ of people massively taller than Trevor, himself:

- My neighbor is probably around 6’6”-6’7”. He only seemed 6’6” flat with posture worst than Idris Elba, wearing less footwear (flat flipflops) than mine and my dad. He can easily fool many people into thinking he was 6’8”.
- My Government Teacher (in high school) is very similar to 6’6.75” men, possibly slightly taller.
- The guy who looks exactly like me (who accidentally kicked me across the room). He’s in the 6’7”-6’8” range. He’d definitely edge out Vitali Klitschko.
- There was a guy in Barnes and Nobles I encountered, who stood beside me, when I was meeting an author. He looked somewhere around 6’10”-6’11” in person.


What I’m saying is that a 6’2” guy could never give an imposing impressing of a 6’6” guy.
Canson said on 29/Dec/18
@Trevor M: not saying 4” isn’t unheard of tho but likely someone who’s under the 6’0” mark
Canson said on 29/Dec/18
@Trevor M: I played college ball myself. 1 or 2 People on our team were overlisted by 2-3” tops. Most were within 2” of their barefoot height and that’s their afternoon height. Even the opponents at some of the larger schools were not like 4+. A 6’2” guy being listed at 6’6” in basketball esp if they play down low or at the 4 is hard to get away with
Canson-6'4 3/8 said on 26/Dec/18
@Christian: I’ve never seen it like that but you’re right. I’ve considered myself closer to 6’4” than 6’5” since I fall right in at .25 often times but then other days 193.8
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Dec/18
@Canson

I'm content with being called a 6'5" ranger, but I'm tall enough to be classified as a 6'5"-6'6" ranger as well because even at night I'm often nearer to 6'5.5" than 6'5" flat. Sometimes I can drop to 6'5.25" as well. Same goes for you. You'd be classified as a 6'4"-6'5" ranger.
Canson said on 23/Dec/18
@Dream: yea that’s my way of seeing it. Christian at his height would be closer to 6’5” for example. I look at it as what you’re closest to for the majority of the day so 6’5.5 would be closer to 6’6 for the first half of the day and middle of the road the remainder.
Dream said on 22/Dec/18
@Canson

Oh! So whenever you mention 6’5”-6’6”, you would usually say 6’5.5” for ending day.

That’s also a better way to look at it. My example wasn’t the best. I only went with ‘Oh. These guys are over 6’5”, but not quite 6’6” at the end of the day.’
Canson said on 22/Dec/18
@Christian: yea I didn’t phrase it well. What I was focusing on was the part about his wife “mismeasuring him” or being short so not being able to measure him properly etc. if you see on one of the wrestlers pages a couple weeks back someone said “well what if Kobe’s wife measured him at night”? That’s silly because the night height is the same as an afternoon height for the most part. It’s a lot better than these eye openers that people receive since they’re at height that someone wouldn’t measure again that day without laying down. But not so much that he can’t look 6’5 because he can and 6’4.75 isn’t much off that.

@Christian: agreed. Very well said on your part because it’s the truth

@Dream: I’m not sure how I would class 6’5-6’6 range. Maybe someone ending the day around 6’5.5 imho. I think Stern is 6’5.25 at his peak like listed and 6’5” today as a couple people here Bobby3342 and Bruin met him and have him there not to mention he looks that with Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson

@Christian and @Canson

I think for at least 6’5”, I would say Metta World Peace, Bo Burnham, Wladimir Klitscko, and Howard Stern all fall into that 6’5”-6’6” range.

Actually someone literally guessed Bo at 6’2”-6’3” by looking at his pictures, alone! 😂😂😂😂Even Rob and I knew that height guess is an absolute joke.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Dec/18
@Canson

At least 6'5" isn't a bad estimate even though it's objectively a bit too high. There are some here who say he's 6'5.5" or even 6'6" and says that his wife mismeasured him.
Canson said on 20/Dec/18
His wife being a certain height or not and not being a professional shouldn’t be a reason to take not take her for “granted” or “with a grain of salt”. He looks 195cm on the court next to others. He’s shorter than Caron Butler who is 6’5 himself. People that makes those types of assumptions are making excuses
Ab said on 19/Dec/18
I'd say he's 6ft 5.. his wifes measurements should be taken with a grain of salt as she's what? 5ft 5.. she would have to be in a chair to see over his head. And who knows if Kobe was bending his knees so his wife can see the top of his head and not fall over. Also, Kobe seems like the kind of guy who wants to seem more "human" and everyday type of athlete in contrast with the hyper athletes of his era. I'd say 6ft 5 suits him.
Canson said on 5/Dec/18
@Miller: understood but pre drafts take place early morning. So a 6’7” guy would be 6’6.5 more than likely and Luka an inch shorter then Kobe one inch shorter puts Kobe as a weak 6’5”. May really be 6’4.75. By the way, Junior and I are talking Matt Barnes not Harrison Barnes. I see the following:

Matt Barnes measuring 6’6.75 could mean 6’6.25-.5
Harrison Barnes measuring 6’7 could mean 6’6.5-.75 range
miller said on 4/Dec/18
Canson barnes was measured in the predraft at 6.7 and has atleast 1 inch on luka doncic who has 1 inch on kobe bryant.
Canson said on 20/Nov/18
@Junior: that’s about what I would guess Barnes at 199ish. That adds up with his pre draft 6’6.75 if it were his morning height. 6’6.25-.5 range afternoon
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
Junior: looks about right to me
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Nov/18
@Canson I recall he look 199cm up close in person saw him for couple of minutes having pretty good posture which is likely 6'6 1/2 max to go with. Very little chance he could be 6'6 3/4 like the draft height without shoes.
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Junior: I think Barnes is what you said. You said you met him right? And 6’6-6’6.5? I can agree on that
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Nov/18
@Canson Barnes 6'8 claim on the clip way of a joke. Big Inflation that he could only be 6'6 3/4 max and most likely to be 6'6 1/2. Now i recall that 6'6 was an animated height chart he ever put up on IG.
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
@Viper: do you think Wilton Speight’s is correct? They say 6052. He did seem at least 6’5” with DWade. Raekwon seems at least 6’6”
Dream(5'9.5") said on 8/Nov/18
@Canson indeed. It’s surprising he was only 6’6.25”, but Raekwon certainly looks a strong 6’6” zone.
Canson said on 7/Nov/18
@Dream: well said! I didn’t realize he only measured 6’6.25 tho like Christian said. But he does look a good 6’6” as opposed to a weak one. That measurement could be one taken at a Pro Day

I do think Raekwon is 6-6 though
Dream(5'9.5") said on 7/Nov/18
@Canson The more I think about it and see that picture, the more I think 6'7" or a hair over it, is very likely. I don't think a solid 6'6" could look that tall with 'less' footwear.

@Dream: I agree. I’d say Fox is around 196-197
Canson said on 23/Oct/18
@Junior: I’ve never heard Barnes claim 6’6”. He claimed that he was 6’8” barefoot on the same show MWP claimed 6’5.5 (Power 106 Big Boi’s neighborhood). I don’t buy the claim because looking at Metta and Barnes and Kobe, Barnes looks around 6’6-6’6.5. Kobe looks 6’4.75 Metta 6’5.25 max. He obviously isn’t 6’8” or even his listed 6’7”.

Dream(5'9.5") said on 23/Oct/18
Actually, I did say that Kobe 'looked' shorter than MCW, but that was when I first found the picture.

Bo still looks taller than Kobe, with MCW.

Rick Fox doesn't look 6'6". Probably 6'5.5".
Dream(5'9.5") said on 21/Oct/18
@Junior

I never said Kobe was shorter than MCW. I did point out that Kobe was loose in posture.

However, Bo was also leaning as well, and he still looked taller than Kobe, standing MCW.

Plus, Kobe has a slight camera advantage. Not much.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Oct/18
Strange is 6'6 listed Rick Foxx mostly look 2cm taller than Kobe and Matt Barnes claim to be only 6'6 and that is a big 4cm taller than Kobe. Understand most of the fans met Kobe usually claim he is 6'6 and honest ones say 6'5 the same thing as a middle claim height from Kobe. Sorry but have to say Some BS-ter say Kobe is 6'4-6'4 1/2 in person that is untrue. I rather take Vanessa words of 195cm as a night measurement. MCW picture with Kobe was somehow bad because we can't see a proper standing position and feet from both player and MCW was measure during draft and probably just a strong 194cm at his low and not really all players look 1/2 inch or 3/4 shorter than their draft height, it makes me wonder most of them atually look 1/4 or to say just 1cm lower.
Canson said on 15/Oct/18
@Christian: I would put Kobe right where his wife has him measured. I think metta is more like the strong 6’5”. He may be your height or within 1/8”. I can see him measuring maybe a mm or two lower than you would on avg. I have metta at 6’5.25. I actually was the one who got the quote for Rob of him saying he was 6’5 1/2 but that may just be a mid morning measurement. Best case imho he’s 6’5 3/8 at a low
Dream(5'9.5") said on 15/Oct/18
A strong 6’5” is really pushing it.

Metta World Peace and Bo Burnham both edge out Kobe Bryant by a strong half inch.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Oct/18
@Junior

Why would Kobe be a strong 6'5" at lowest?

@Junior: a poster here named KROC claimed to have met Kobe and said that Kobe was half inch or a cm shorter than he was. KROC is 6’5-6’5.25 so that puts Kobe around 6’4.75. World Peace is half inch taller but likely 6’5.25 at a low. 6’5.5 is probably earlier I. The day. With Reggie Miller and MWP it’s a CM or half inch difference too and Miller has said before when describing Metta “he’s my height around 6’5 or 6’6” and has called himself 6’5/6’6 before as well. Miller probably edged MWP but they are around the same height (within an inch of each other). My guesses are below

Miller 6’5 5/8-.75
MWP 6’5.25
Kobe 6’4.75
Canson said on 14/Oct/18
@Dream: agree with everything you said
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Oct/18
@Lava Nope he can't be over 6'5. Kobe was 1/2 inch shorter than 6'5 1/2 Ron Artest. Kobe most likely hold a strong 6'5 a lowest height and just one time false measurement accused him being 6'4 3/4 by his wife.
Canson said on 13/Oct/18
Lol if he were 200cm without shoes at a low he would be listed at 6’7” maybe 6’8”. Most players are measured in the morning. He’s listed 6’6 and is 6’4.75 barefoot like Rob suggests
Dream(5'9.5") said on 12/Oct/18
@Lava

Then Metta World Peace and Bo Burnham are 199 cm guys without shoes and 202 cm guys with shoes.

197 cm flat for Kobe Bryant is ridiculous.

Look at Kobe Bryant with 6'5.5" Metta World Peace ==> Click Here

You could argue Kobe is looking down, but Metta is further away from the camera. It's arguable that Metta World Peace could be 6'5.25", but that's the lowest I'd argue for Ron Artest (Metta World Peace).

Look at Kobe Bryant with Michael Carter-Williams --> Click Here

Keep in mind, both of them are loose in posture. However, with MCW, Bo Burnham 'looks' taller than Kobe Bryant, especially when one considers his obvious lean. 6'5.25" is one of the best listings for Big Bo.

@Dream: I think Watt’s hair can give a taller illusion as well. My guess is he does still edge Kobe but maybe a 1/4-1/2 unless Kobe dips under the mark and Watt retains his height better than we think. Watt can generally look 196 and Kobe 195 tho. I have Jordan at 194 today and similar with Mangianello imho
Canson said on 6/Oct/18
@Dream: I agree he’s not over that mark. He looks almost identical with 6’4.5 Jamal Crawford here.

As for other NBA pre drafts, check out my post on Shaquille Oneal’s Page regarding Chane Behanen. He was “allegedly” measured 6’6 at the combine (morning height of some sort) but only measured 6’5 1/16 for the PBA league where there is a height ceiling of 6’5”. He was 1/16” over the limit and, subsequently, cut as a result. This is what I’ve said all along about NBA pre drafts as well

@Canson

I would say Joe Manganiello would be slightly shorter than Kobe Bryant. Tom Hopper would look ‘no taller’ than Kobe. Tom Noonan or peak John Cleese could probably edge out Kobe.

We know that Metta looks taller than Kobe. Comparing their pictures with Michael Carter Williams—which I’m sure everyone is sick of at this point—Bo definitely looks taller than Kobe, when making that comparison. I’d say Peyton Manning looks taller than Kobe because the top of his head is higher. Peyton was loose in posture, and his hair doesn’t look more than a few mm’s. Manning doesn’t have something close to regular thick hair, let alone Afro hair. JJ Watt does look taller than Kobe, if we compare their pictures with Yao Ming.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 3/Oct/18
@Canson that is true too. Metta doesn’t look any less than 6’5”. I agree that Rick Fox gives a taller impression.

Metta would be 6’5.25” at a low.

What wouldn’t agree is that Kobe would be above 6’5” flat like 6’5.5”—though at times he seems like it. However, that’s more on other celebrities being over listed than anything. The more I see a comparison with Kobe and other 6’5”+ guys, the more this listing works perfectly fine.

To tell you the truth, the guys who ‘look’ taller than Kobe Bryant (Four of them are strong 6’5” as we both believe), some times, has the ‘accurate’ listings. Not all of them, but some of them have decent listings.
Canson said on 1/Oct/18
@Dream: I have Metta about half inch taller than Kobe. I would say 6’4.75 and 6’5.25 at lows. Metta claims 6’5.5 but that may be a bit earlier in the day. I get a taller impression from Rick Fox than him. Metta can look 6’5 with other players like Lamar Odom

Rob, silly question, but could I make a case of 6'4 7/8ths" for Kobe Bryant?

I know it's 1/8ths of an inch, but he's consistently looked roughly 6'5".

I wouldn't argue a solid or strong 6'5" though. Metta World Peace and Bo Burnham edged him out--the latter going by a comparison with MCW.
Editor Rob
Like with Barkley, he has a chance at measuring near 6ft 5. Maybe the wife measured him roughly 6ft 4.75 but it could have been a bit more.

Both are equally arguable, although those two figures are the highest and lowest I'll estimate Kobe at.

Canson said on 18/Sep/18
@Dream: I used to think 6’4.5 for Kobe as well. While it may seem low in hindsight, KROC a poster here has guessed Kobe 194-195 and said he’s weak 6’5 and KROC is 196 himself. A couple others have said that as well and it was said at a basketball camp that he’s 6’4.5 in bare feet and 6’6 in shoes and triple socks. It looks low but also no guarantee Vanessa measured him at a normal low. Then again, it could be that she did but even then 6’4.5 would likely be an extreme low

@Junior call me persistent, but this is what I think.

As tall as Kobe Bryant is, I think this listing is fine, but he could be 6’4.875” or roughly 6’5”. I wouldn’t argue anything sky north of 6’5” for Kobe for a low.


• Metta World Peace looked taller than Kobe Bryant by a good half inch. (This is going by the top of their heads. Metta World Peace could be 6’5.25” at a low.)
• Bo Burnham, also, looked taller than Kobe Bryant (with MCW). If anything, Bo would be taller than Kobe by a half inch. 6’5.25” is a great listing for Big Bo.
• This one is still being argued: Peyton Manning did look ‘barely’ taller than Kobe Bryant, even when Peyton is more loose in posture. However, it’s very close. At first glance, Peyton looks shorter, but the more I look at it, the more I realize he can look taller than Kobe.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 13/Sep/18
@Junior

I think Bo is 6’5.25” as listed. Standing with MCW, Bo did look taller than Kobe, especially when Bo was leaning onto MCW.

Also, apparently, Owen Benjamin (according to someone who saw the picture of Owen and Bo) claimed that Bo Burnham was taller than him (Owen).

In my mind thinking.. I would still throw all 6'5 listed actors into 6'4 1/2 range at their low due to Vanessa Bryant words. I"ll throw her 5'4 claimed to 5'3 1/2 really don't look 5'4 next to Kobe. Now i start to think Bo Burnham might be 6'5 before bed if Kobe 6'4 3/4 was a lowest measurement at night.
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Viper: I think he’s 6’10ish.

@Christian: Agreed!!!

@Junior and Dream: I would have to say weak 6’5 for Kobe accounting for what Junior said. Kobe has always looked for the most part 6’4.5-6’5. I used to say 194 (same as Jordan) but know a former coach that met him and called him 6’5” so the 6’4.75 makes sense or he had footwear advantage. The same guy met Jordan and said 6’4/6’5. He himself is 6’2”.

Never realized until now how Giannis is much bigger than Kobe (other than height of course). Kobe was listed 212lbs when he played (and possibly even a bit heavier since retiring) and Giannis' 222, but he looks massive compared to him. But Giannis could be one of those guys where he looks bigger than what he weighs.

Feel free to disagree with me. I think 6’4 5/8” is too low for Kobe. Generally, I do think 6’4 7/8” or even roughly 6’5” is very arguable for Kobe Bryant. I could see an argument for both. Sky north of 6’5” is something I would say is a tad bit high.

Now, I’m curious about one thing: is there a chance that ‘Phil Jackson’ (the coach who trained Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant) could potentially get a page here?

Indeed true that i found out most 6'5 range guy having a 4.9-5" range eye but Kobe look to have higher eye level equal to some 5'11-6'1 guys. Jordan look to have small fraction lower eye sets than Kobe. Barkley had the worst lower one like a full 5". That could be some reason why Kobe look alot like 6'5 1/2 by giving impression than Jordan and Barkley.
Canson said on 27/Aug/18
@Junior: I’m not thinking a false measurement. That may just be close to a low for Kobe whereas other guys are measuring and claiming higher earlier in the day. People who’ve met Kobe here have said 6’4” and weak 6’5 so doubt he is a full 6’5” prob around where his wife measured him. Maybe worst case he dips to 6’4 5/8 after a longer day
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 26/Aug/18
Rob, do you think Kobe eye level to head is only similar to you at 4.6 inch?

I'd expect it was more average range, so somewhere in 4.5-6 more than 4.9-5 that can be a more common range for very tall 6ft 5 men.

False measurement often occur. Can say i stubborn but if Kobe is not 6'5 i would put Kirk Fox and Peter Hermann down 6'4-6'4 1/2. I can't see them same or taller than Kobe except they got a chunk of hair up advantage than a bald Kobe.

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Aug/18
@Dream(5'9.5") 6'5 is literally 195.6cm. That is a huge potion of possibility that if Kobe tend to stand well he could measure within 6'5 give or take 1-2mm lower i just feel it, Take it a low. That is why most people thought him as 6'5 1/2 and pushing Barkley and Jordan as 6'5-6'5 1/4 guesses.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 18/Aug/18
Personally, I wouldn't put Kobe under 6'4 3/4". He edged out Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley.

I'd say 6'4.875" or even a full 6'5" is more than arguable for Bryant. However, the latter would be more a 'mid afternoon' height, but he's certainly entitled to claim 6'5" more than the other two.
Canson said on 2/Aug/18
@Dream: I could believe Bo and World Peace (Artest) at 6’6 out of bed very easily. Then 6’5.25 at a low. I do agree both would edge Kobe by half Inch (6’4.75 at a low). Kobe would probably measure around 6’5 1/2 out of bed
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Aug/18
@Canson @Junior

For me, what really solidified 6’5.25” for Bo Burnham was comparing him and Kobe Bryant to MCW. When that happen, I thought 6’5.25” would be a much better fit for Bo.

For Kobe Bryant, all of us could make a case that he could be 6’4.875” or maybe even a 6’5” flat. However, I personally wouldn’t go ‘above’ 6’5 flat. That would put Bo and Artest at 6’5.5”-6’5.75”.

There is a chance for 6’5 3/8” for Bo and Artest. While I wouldn’t put them at that listing for an ‘absolute’ low, it’s easy to say both of them ‘will’ measure that mark, at one point in the day, without question.

@Junior: I think 6’5.25 is good for Bo. He only had about half inch on Holmes when they stood together and not so sure Holmes is a legit 6’5”. Probably a weak 6’5. I do believe Bo is over 6’5 by a hair but 3/8 may be high
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jul/18
@Dream(5'9.5") I did say Bo is not just 6'5 1/4 that simple to be honest watching his performance on stage so far i could see strongly from 6'5 1/4 to 6'5 1/2 and even look near 6'6 sometimes. He might be measure a lowest at 6'5 3/8 (196.5cm). I did say If Kobe stand tall and measure it would not surprise me he get a 6'5 measurement. Ron Artest and Bo both height look to be the most comparable in this site, might both rest down at a low 196.5cm.

@Rising: it’s odd. I’ve never been able to find a pre draft for Hill like the other players have. My guess though is something like 6’7 and change for a low and he would be probably 6’8” or hair over out of bed. The difference with MJ and Pip I can agree on. At times it can look even less but then at times it can look 3”. It’s strange that the back to back pic they have actually diminishes the difference a bit. That would put Pippen only at 6’6” tho or if we went with 195cm for Jordan then 6’6.25 which seems low for him. Now I could argue Scottie as 6’6.75 when he played and perhaps 6’7” early career only because he had back surgery twice. But I concur prob around 6cm diff between them. I would say Jordan 194.3cm and Scottie 200 or so
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Jul/18
@Junior: Grant was supposed to have measured 6'8" in '94, but whether that was an early measurement is another case. Hill looks very similar to 6'7.25" Lebron in the '05 all-star photo: Click Here Looks like Grant might just edge Lebron out. 6'8" might be an early measurement for him and he may be more like 6'7.5". Pippen was about 6 cm taller than MJ, but I think MJ was 195 cm, maybe a weak 6'5" and Scottie at least 6'7"-6'7.5", but possibly shorter now. T-Mac looked around 6'7" to me, but he might have been just under that. Tough to say because he had an enormous wingspan like Pippen, but he also played 2 guard most of the time so he'd look taller in comparison. He was barely 18 when he was drafted, but he also had chronic back problems and slouched so tough to say. Definitely not 6'9"-6'10" as some believed, but he was noticeably taller than Drexler and close to Magic Johnson's height. But Magic could be argued at only 6'7" flat judging by how he can look with Kobe.
Canson said on 4/Jul/18
@Rising and Junior: Rising is correct there is no official listing but Hill was said many times to be 6’7” barefoot. I would throw some change on there and call him maybe 201. I never believed Pippen’s listing of 6’7.5. That was said to be a shoe height as well. But that seems a little low as it would make him only slightly above 6’6”. I can believe anywhere from 6’6.5-6’7 for Pippen as he had Jordan by about 5-6cm and Jordan was 6’4 1/2. TMac like Rising said 6’6.25-.5 I’ve seen both listings. Remember with him one leg was longer than the other. And yea he’s “about” 2” taller than Kobe. Kobe at 195cm and Tmac at “about 199”.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Jul/18
@Rising - 174 cm: Grant Hill was never told to be really measure at 6'8. It's the draftexpress site previously listed that the source is from newspaper stated he is 6'8 barefoot. I supposed Grant is 6'7 1/2 looking 1/2 taller than Scottie Pippen. T-Mac look close to 6'7 with Kobe.

T-Mac was listed 6'8" throughout his entire NBA career, though Kobe actually referred to T-Mac as 6'9" when saying he was the toughest player he played against, but he was likely exaggerating and many may have perceived Tracy as taller than he was because of his enormous wingspan. T-Mac had chronic back problems and tended to slouch, but he was slightly shorter than Grant Hill and Mike Miller: Click Here Miller is supposed to have measured 6'7.5" and Hill 6'8", but neither is completely reliable as the NBA doesn't list Miller among it's 2000 measurements and Grant Hill is obviously pre-2000. I agree Kobe can look less than 2" shorter, but some believe Grant Hill was more like 6'7" and if that's the case then T-Mac looks 6'6" range with him.

If they're 193, then Kobe would look 195.5. But you're that 2cm and 2.5cm is indistinguishable at times, and 192.7 doesn't look different from 193 either. Brady and Strahan could be 192.7 but they'll basically look 193.
Canson said on 30/Jun/18
@Christian: I wonder how long the morning measurements in the NFL have been going on. Peyton Manning can look 195 cm with JJ Watt assuming Watt is also maybe a morning height. But manning may have lost height from the injuries. Manning can look the height he’s listed at times in his prime. I would’ve pegged him as a legit 196 at a low. Brady on the other hand may be 6’3 7/8 or 6’4. I see someone like Strahan and think 6’4
Canson said on 30/Jun/18
@Christian: that’s about right 3/8-1/2” less. I actually wouldn’t put either under 6’4” flat but two other variables I mentioned to Junior are that 2 cm and 2.5 don’t look that much different and even if someone has a slight camera angle it could throw it off. Not to mention what Junior mentioned Kobe may have been above 6’4.75. Even if he were maybe 195.1-195.2 that would swing it to closer to 2.5 appearance. But it’s possible too that Strahan and Brady fall a mm or two under 6’4 and will still look their heights since it’s only mm or two
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Jun/18

Strahan/Brady might be 6'3 7/8" then. They're about 3/8"-1/2" lower than their measurements which is about typical for an NFL player.
Canson said on 28/Jun/18
@Junior: I’d actually say he would measure 6’5.25 or 6’5 1/8 if he were being measured at the time when a pre draft takes place (1 hour out of bed). 6’5.5 out of bed 6’4.75 at a low give or take maybe a couple mm. They don’t do 1/8” increments in the NBA but sometimes Kobe can look a weak 6’5 others solid 6’5. Kobe with Paul pierce or Melo looks no more than 195.

So 6'5-6'5 1/8 walking in the morning and afternoon of the day is possible why he doesn't look under 6'5 and chances Strahan and Tom Brady was like Kobe lost the 1/8 extra from their low looking 6'4 at night. But MJ look 1/4 shorter than Kobe that picture we could argue MJ might be loosing more posture in the picture or shoes/camera angle because looking how he look solid 4" on 185cm Obama we can say 6'4 3/4 is possible not under for MJ.
Canson said on 22/Jun/18
@Junior: if those were morning heights Brady could be 6’3 7/8 or 6’4 at a low while Strahan could be 6’3.75 or 7/8 at a low. I doubt either is any lower however and I’d say peak both are flat 6’4” guys. You have to remember at an inch vs 2cm it’s hard to tell the difference to a T. Strahan May have lost some height as well
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Jun/18
@Junior

At most I can see Kobe at 6'4 7/8" and she might've rounded down to 6'4.75" but I doubt she measured him at 6'5". I agree with you that Kobe can easily look 6'5"+ if you base it on other celebs' listings because more than likely they're slightly overlisted.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Jun/18
@Canson Really no way Strahan look 6'4 with Kobe if Mamba is only 195cm. Lets just say Brady and Strahan is 192.5cm at their low it is possible and since Kobe is proper inch taller. Really not 1/2 not 3/4 that little and we can't just trust Vanessa Bryant words just because she claim him under 6'5. According to Kobe lakers former teammates all say he was 6'5-6'6 ofcos the 6'6 got to be a sneakers height and Wade call Kobe 6'6 we know Wade himself claim 6'4 but his not. So my point is Strahan could also be a low 6'4 but Kobe possibly was under measure by 1/4 no big deal that 6'5 also a low for him. I watch a clip on youtube some while ago Kobe on a morning american show with Strahan that look about 3cm also an inch but someone remove the video away. So there is no way flat 195cm could edge a 6'4 guy this way and they both had leveled footwear.
Canson said on 21/Jun/18
@Junior: Strahan May have lost height or that may have been him measuring in the AM at 6’4.25 and he’s likely a full 6’4” at a low like Brady. Kobe looks 195 range with him I’ll say and maybe not perfect 6’4.75 but maybe a mm or two above max
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Jun/18
False measurement took place sometimes we should not denied it. Vanessa Bryant may have measure him just once and it is possible a casual posture Kobe stand so a false measurement happens, btw just a 1/4 inch more so i don't see why not happen and he does say to be 6'5 and claim it on Jay Leno show. Kobe look a proper full inch taller than 6'4 1/4 Michael Strahan and there is a picture at Nickelodeon award look 1.5" between them as Kobe had a 1/3 more sneakers. I still think Kobe could be a proper 6'5 than just 6'4 3/4. Strahan was measure 6'4 1/4 in the morning so not a proper 6'4 1/4 much like close to 6'4 at his low. I initially thought 6'5 before i start comment in this site and i still think a true 6'5 for Kobe by looking at those 6'5 claim actors its awful that most of them look 1/2 inch lower than Kobe when make comparison with actors that have took picture with Kobe. It's not that hard to believe it.

@Caesar: Lebron to me is closer to 6’7”. The same former coach I mentioned said that hes “about 6’7” when he’s met him. This guy I’m referring to is a scout. As well, poster KROC met him and said he’s 6’7” in person. I would say 6’6.5-6’7 is the lowest. Now Kevin Love I’ve seen is only 6’7”ish not 6’7.75 but because he likely was measured at the equivalent to a morning height despite the fact it took place in the afternoon that year (2008), but for good reason as he’s undersized to begin with even if he were really 6’7.75. Love doesnt have a full inch or more on Lebron it’s aboit half inch. I would guess Lebron no lower than 6’6.5 or .75 and Love at 6’7.25
Canson said on 8/Jun/18
@Caesar: I remember a poster named KROC also said Kobe was 194-195 in person. I would’ve thought seeing him with Jordan that he was at 195. Phil Jackson once mentioned that Kobe was “slightly taller” than Jordan. I could buy Jordan only being 194 or so however. Yep when I met Melo he is for sure a full 6’6” in person. He’s no less at least from how he stacked up next to me. There is always a possibility of 6’6.25 as there also is of maybe 6’5 7/8 at normal low but the latter doesn’t seem realistic being everyone around us said 1.5-2” taller than me. That could be an extreme low maybe. I know that my former AAU coach has met Barkley Jordan and Kobe and also said Kobe was the tallest of the 3 that he looked closer to 6’5”. He actually said Barkley and Jordan were about as tall as I am. I still keep in contact and have seen him recently. “About as tall as” could mean 1/4” taller or 1/8”. I measure around 6’4.25 or 6’4.3 at a normal days low. My former coach is a legit 6’2”

@Dream: agreed and he could even be a hair over 6’4”. I don’t think 6’4.5 however for MCW as that’s likely a morning height

Kobe looks 194-195 in person. @Canson Do you really think that Carmelo is the full 6'6? I saw him in New York back in 2010 and he didn't look it...From a distance. Admittedly I didn't stand next to him for my "assessment." Interestingly enough, he does seem to have a slight advantage on Kobe in some pictures but looks shorter than Lebron James who is a full 6'6.

I wouldn’t put MCW under 6’4” since he actually holds very well with Big Show. MCW also has a camera disadvantage.

@Dream: I can agree on Kobe. 195. MCW imho would be 193 range at a low since he measured 6’4.5 morning. That half could even be 3/8 since they don’t use 1/8” increments in the NBA only NFL does. Burnham could be 196 like Rob lists him. He’s got MCW by a bit

I wouldn't be surprised that Kobe can be re-measured a proper 6'5 or a bit more but not by his wife. People should bare in mind there is an inch between Kobe and Michael Strahan who admit and claim he is 6'4 and a bit not 6'5. Faulty measurement happens all the time. Added that Kobe look over an inch taller than the late 6'4 1/4 Michael Clarke Duncan.
Canson said on 2/Jun/18
@Christian: yea the hair wouldn’t add that much. Even next to me we looked the same just about. I may have had an edge but the top of his hair was about in line with the top of my head. But I’m not sure if my post from yesterday went through but he inflates others an Inch as well
Canson said on 1/Jun/18
@Christian: yea he looked 6’4.25-.5 max. We looked in the mirror at a bar and were identical. He just had hair and I didn’t. Personally, I believe very early morning measurement or the fact that he inflated himself early AM. He talked about some people’s heights and added 1” to all of them
Canson said on 1/Jun/18
@Dream: I can agree with most of your list to be honest. Cleese won’t be taller today but peak possibly by a hair. moeller to me falls into the same category as AJ. Or at least very close. A strong 6’5 to weak 6’6 maybe even right on the line. As for Watt, I would say he’s taller as he is Manning but it’s probably a CM difference 196 vs 195. Watt surprisingly for a morning measurement holds a height like that well.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 31/May/18
In my opinion, here are the 10% percent listed 6'5"+ guys that would be taller than Kobe Bryant:



- Ralf Moeller
- JJ Watt
- Joe Bryce
- Nonso Aonzie
- Howard Stern
- Ashley Banjo
- Wladimir Klistchko
- Bo Burnham
- Bo Svenson
- John Cleese
- Tom Noonan


Those are the 10% percent. I won't be counting guys like Anthony Joshua (Who would definitely be taller than Kobe Bryant.) Keep in mind, this is not from tallest to shortest. This is only a list of people who I think can be taller than Kobe Bryant.

I'm curious. What does anyone make of my list of the 10% percent?
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 31/May/18
@Canson

I believe that guy either had an early day measurement or mismeasured a bit. Hair shouldn't be adding 5/8" to anyone's height if measured correctly. I had pretty thick hair a while ago and my measurements back then and now are barely any different.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/May/18
Anyway Vanessa just throwing words twice to claim Kobe was 6'4 3/4 and she had no evidence to prove it. We can best tell or see it that Kobe look an easy 6'5 guy like he claim on Jay Leno show over a decades ago. One fact i don't see Vanessa over 5'3.5" standing next to Kobe all the time took the variation off on her heels and their barefoot together pictures she just doesn't look a proper 5'4 women that i have know in person. The problem is what kind of height measurement instrument she used to measure Kobe or a height chart that is paste to the wall likely give or take 1cm off or give more. Kobe real height is really a myth that if Jordan get a 6'5 listing and impression by Rob then i would say Kobe look 6'5.25" min because Kobe look max an inch on 6'4 1/4 Michael Strahan although Strahan was measure in the morning for NFL draft height.
Canson said on 29/May/18
@Junior: very true that the hair makes a difference. I know someone close in height with me that says he measured 6’5” flat when we are pretty much identical. He has long hair however
Jtm said on 29/May/18
phil jackson was probably 6'7.
Canson said on 28/May/18
I agree Junior. He passes for 6’5 because he’s in sneaks and dress shoes a lot. So in his case he hits 6’6” in shoes

@Dream and Rob: Jackson was 6’7 peak but may be 6’6.5 or so now. He didn’t have a noticeable advantage on Rodman and really didn’t look as tall as Pippen
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/May/18
@Christian-6'5 3/8" I would say totally can't see Kobe look under 6'4.75" at most of time he just look an easy 6'5 to me.

@Canson 6'4 3/4 is absolutely true and lowest. I would just throw my money for the 90% 6'5 listed guy here were all not even a hair taller than Kobe if to shave them bald like him.

He looks easily taller than Kobe Bryant, and he's at old age. I'm going to assume he could have been a guy over 6'6" like Daniel Cudmore at his peak.

@Junior and Christian: a poster named KROC claimed to have met Kobe and KROC himself was 6’5/6’5.25 (196ish) and said Kobe was slightly shorter. He said he looked 194/195 but then also that he looked 195cm at best. He thought it was about half inch. Then a poster named Sam went to the same high school as Kobe and said that a friend of his graduated same class as Kobe and that his friend was “about 6’4” and that Kobe was “about” an inch taller

@Christian: I think that source took what he admitted to Being measured by his wife. However, I totally believe the measurement and it’s how he normally looks. In addition, I agree with you that If he measured that, he’s definitely 195 not 196 especially being we base it on afternoon heights here on CH. looking at him next to Draymond Green, I would say that Kobe looks a cm maybe half inch shorter. Green Looks about your height since he measured 6’5.75 in the morning but likely 6’5.25ish at a low.
Canson said on 20/May/18
@Canisvy: a guy who measures 6’4.75 won’t be 6’5.5 average even if that’s his extreme low. He would be that height out of bed or best case maybe 6’5.75-6’6 if he loses more than average. Otherwise, a customary measurement for a guy like that is 6’5.5 out of bed. But The best case avg would be 6’5 flat most likely. But that’s how he looks. It’s more of a fact that most people are overlisted. He is shorter than 196-197cm Rick Fox and Sasha Vujecic. Assuming Sasha was a low at 6’5.5 he’s at least 1/2” taller and most measurements aren’t at a low. It’s more likely that Kobe measured at or near his low.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 20/May/18

Kobe was officially measured 6-4.75" as well, and not just by his wife. Click Here So we know he's not 196.

Honestly if we ignore what Vanessa Bryant say measure Kobe at 6'4 3/4, Kobe atually look 196cm most of time with teammates that is how a solid 6'5 guy look just like the average guess given 6'5.18in now.
Canson said on 11/May/18
I think if you took Barkley MJ and Kobe and stood them back to back against one another that Kobe would be the tallest. He may actually be a legit 195 at a normal low as he can look 195isj at times or even 6’5” more regularly than the other two
Canson said on 8/May/18
@VicLions:

I can agree that a person measuring 6’4.75 and 6’5 won’t look much different from one another. So he is “essentially” about 6’5” since he’s closer to it. But Him saying he’s only 6’4” was not meant to downplay his height. It was intended more so to say that he was not 6’7” like everyone thought he was (like he told the kid)
VicLions said on 6/May/18
Yeah he does look like a legit 6ft5 to me. He seems to downplay his height sometimes.
Canson said on 3/May/18
@Junior: yes I’ve always maintained that he could drop to a flat 6’6 or maybe 6’6 1/8. But in the end he is much closer to his predraft height than someone like Dwyane Wade or John Wall or even James Harden or Steph Curry. But it could be that he gained a fraction as well. Not 100% sure what time of day that they measured that year but also having met Keith Bogans he looks about 6’4.25 that he’s listed as well and was measured 6’4.5 in the previous combine (2002). He decided to go back to college though. That leads me to believe that either 2002 was an error or earlier in the day. He looks the same as I do in person if anything maybe he’s half cm shorter.

I can top that for Melo out of bed. I could see 6’7”. Someone his size may lose a full inch. As for Kobe there is the possibility of 195 but at that stage we’re talking 6’4.77 vs 6’4.75. Or 195cm vs 194.945 which is what 6’4.75 is. You can’t see a difference of 194.945 and 195 though because it’s not even a full mm difference between them. But someone measuring 195 flat is likely going to list 6’4.75 as nobody measures perfectly to a fraction which is why metric is a better gauge of height than English. And that’s if they’re being specific. Otherwise the average person that size claims 6’5”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/May/18
@Canson I believe you have met Melo but i doubt his lowest is under 6'6 1/4 like 6'6 flat you say. Melo could easily be 200cm out of bed. Kobe is really not below 195cm if you look at him with more legit 6'2 1/4 Russell Westbrook. 6'4.75" is only 194.9cm i would even throw 1/8 more for Kobe.
Jason 193cm said on 2/May/18
@Junior agreed, I wear some fairly typical Nikes and they give me 3cm - 1.25 inches. They're pretty standard as far as basketball shoes go.

Canson said on 26/Apr/18
@Junior: when I met Melo he was in a dress shoe at a restaurant. It looked the same as mine from a glance but he didn’t look less than 6’6 but probably not as high as 6’6.5. I would guess that if he dips below his draft height it’s to a flat 6’6” if even that. 198-199 is probably good for him. Kobe looks about his listed height at a low. If he dips below it’s prob not more than maybe 194.7 or so

It's more rare to say those basketball shoes give less than 1.2" (3cm) wear by NBA players nowadays. We can see nike air given 1.4-1.5" boost with a pair of thick socks. Carmelo Anthony had often wear it in the past that maybe why he often give others impression of 6'6.5" with teammates.

It's rare for modern basketball shoes to give less than an inch. Back in the day players used to play in Converse which gives around 0.6"

Rob, do you have any idea on the brand of basketball shoes players are measured in? Looking at stats, players are usually said to be around 0.75' taller with shoes on, but Kobe's wife said that his Nike Sneakers gave him 1.25 inches of height?
Editor Rob
I would say the brands vary...0.75 is a small basketball sneaker, 1.5 big - I've seen that as the common range over the years of reading barefoot/sneaker measurements.
Canson said on 5/Apr/18
@Dream: it could go either direction. Kobe may easily edge a 196.5 cm guy out if he has camera angle. Or if one isn’t standing straight since 195cm is only 1.5cm below that
Dream(5'9.5 said on 2/Apr/18
Rob, how would a 6'5.375" guy compare to Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, and Charles Barkley?

A genuine measured guy that height may well look roughly similar, you'd probably say they all could look close to a guy like that, even if they measure less than him. 1cm isn't that much, it can vanish in a photo quite easily.

@Berta: doubt Vaughn ever was that tall. People inflate guys like Barkley and Kobe to make some of these celebs what they claim. Vaughn peak was prob not more than about 6’4.5 same as Tim Robbins (who claimed it) albeit that’s likely their low. Vaughn according to some who met him isn’t but around 6’4 today looking at his particular page. I could buy him being around my height at most if Kobe is 195

@Johnson: pretty sure 6’8.75 was it barefoot or 6’8.5. That’s what I remember. I saw where Kendrick Perkins measured 6’8.25 I believe and he looks slightly taller than Perk and slightly shorter than KD. Meaning a 6’9.5 (at best) KD will look 2cm maybe just half inch taller depending on what KD is. KD measured 6’9” flat in 2007 and someone that age “can” potentially grow but it’s highly unlikely it’s that much. Maybe they gain 1/4” or 1/2” anything higher is not normal. Very few 19-20 year olds grow a lot more than that. I believe Durant to be in the neighborhood of 6’9.25-.5 not any higher tho. Looks just enough to be 6’9.5 other times looks more a flat 6’9”

If Kobe’s wife measured him 6’4.75 he’s not “over 6’5” and it Rodman claimed 6’6” he’s likely not 6’7 or 6’8. NBA listings are in shoes not barefoot
Canson said on 24/Feb/18
@Chris: Kobe’s wife (referenced above) said she measured Kobe at 6’4.75. Common sense is that NBA measurements are in shoes that is widely known. And I’ve met Carmelo before his pre draft listing of 6’6.25 Is totally accurate as he was 1.5-2” taller than me I’m 6’4 1/4-1/2 myself. I mean you can’t have it both ways. Wanting everyone to be taller like you always do and then saying a pre draft is wrong (in the opposite direction). If anything it would be inflated. So Kobe being 1.5” shorter than Melo makes him 6’4.75
Johnson said on 24/Feb/18
@Chris I agree with you. I am a free mind... about basketball players I will not debate anymore. I just observe pictures and will go to my conclusions

From the very moment people base on draft height at 18 y.o like finish height 100% and rounded claims down there is not point to debate here
Chris said on 23/Feb/18
The problem with this site, is you're convinced everyone is smaller than they say.

So you bring Shaq down to 6'11...........
And then you say "Well, Tim Duncan is only 6'9 because Shaq is 6'11"..........
And then you say "Well Karl Malone is only 6'8 because he's not taller than Tim Duncan".......
And then you say "Well Rodman is only 6'6 because he's 2 inches shorter than Karl Malone"........
And then you say "Well Jordan must be 6'5 because he's 1 inch shorter than Rodman"..........
And then you say "Well Kobe must be 6'4 because he's shorter than Jordan"

And the entire process probably just started with you getting Shaq's height wrong!
Editor Rob
The funny thing is, Rodman claimed 6ft 6, Kobe claimed 6ft 4 and Shaq claimed 6ft 11!
Chris said on 23/Feb/18
Kobe is taller than 6'5. I saw a picture of him playing for team USA, where the entire team were standing in a line, dead straight, and he was about 2 inches taller than Dwayne Wade (who you list at almost 6'4). He was only marginally smaller than Carmelo Anthony. I'd say he's an inch smaller than Carmelo. Making him 6'5.5

Sorry Dillon that was for you. I had responded to Johnson on a diff topic
Canson said on 20/Feb/18
@Johnson: he may be. But then again I see Rose next to Pippen and Pippen looks noticeably taller. I can’t buy anything over 6’7” for Scottie and he even looks under the mark very often. I saw him with Zach Randolph when they played in Portland. Randolph is a barefoot 6’7”. You can see with him too next to Rasheed Wallace and Mark Gasol. Now I’m not saying Rose is far under 6’6” it at all but I would bank he’s def not over Paul pierce in height
Dillon Rice said on 19/Feb/18
@Canson I think Rose is leaning in a bit with Kobe. Since the height difference is so small it looks like they are the same height.

@Junior: my guess is Kobe should edge Crawford by at least 1/4” but a low for him at 6’4.75 is likely good. Prob a bit of a slouch or stance. He could be the case where a guy loses the full inch and he could hover near 6’5” most of the day or he may just be the norm who is 6’5.5 out of bed 6’4.75ish at a low

@junior Hernandez

Kobe is prob ok but Jordan needs one. Only way he’s 6’5” is out of bed. 6’4.5 at a normal low maybe even just 194 today

Barkley I agree tho peak maybe as high as 6’4 5/8. No higher tho
Junior Hernandez said on 1/Feb/18
To be specific i think Kobe deserve an upgrade at 6'4 7/8, Jordan needs a downgrade at 6'4.75" and Barkley need a downgrade too at 6'4 5/8. Kobe edge Jordan by small fraction and Barkley edge by Jordan a fraction.

@Rob please add Carmelo Anthony, he is the missing basketball player in celebheights

he has pictures with all celebrities from Tyson Fury to Benzema, Prince Harry, Ashton Kutcher etc etc
Editor Rob
He is one of the bigger names who should get a page.

@Johnson: what rob lists him if he hasn’t met him is irrelevant. Usually Rob will not undercut anyone if he doesn’t see fit. Look at Melo with Kobe and you can tell also with other ball players. Like I’ve said I’ve met Melo and in addition five people around me said 1.5-2”. Not to mention I can tell a difference of 6’6” and 6’7” as I have 2 friends both sizes. I mean being I have the pre draft of Melo at 6’6.25 and that’s how he looks that’s what I choose to believe. It’s just that that height is his normal height whereas he could easily be 6’7-6’7.25 out of bed. You have to actually come to reality at some point and realize that while people “may” grow after 18 it’s not as likely as you think. You think 90% of the basketball players here “grew up”. People who say they did I’m sure some do but I’m sure some exaggerate that they do. And being he’s a small forward and now actually a power forward I find it hard to believe the NBA would undermeasure him. It’s far more likely to be the opposite case if anything and that he may have been less or measured earlier and grown to that height if anything.

@Canson check Benzema page

Rob lists him 183.8 and there is a picture with Carmelo Anthony
Canson said on 18/Jan/18
@Logan: my estimates are

Kobe 6’4 3/4 like his wife has him (195cm)
Jordan 6’4 3/8-1/2 (1cm shorter than Kobe today but could’ve been 1/2” peak)
Barkley peak 6’4 1/2-3/4 zone today could be 194 or under with age hip replacement etc and weight
Shaq measured 7’0” supoosedly and admitted he’s 6’11 range
Yao 7’4 range more than likely (loses a lot at that height).
Wardlow could be 8’11.

Kobe is a strong 6'5" 1/4 at best drops at 6'4" 1/2 at night.

Kobe: 6'5"
Jordan: 6'5"
Barkley: 6'6" Current: 6'5" 1/4
Shaquille: 7'1" Current: 7'0" 3/4
Yao Ming: 7'5" 1/2
Bradley: 7'6" 1/4
Robert Wadlow: 8'11" 1/8

nba players aren't measured in the morning...... getting sick of saying this so this is the last time I will bother
Canson said on 1/Jan/18
@Ok: nick young actually had a pre draft of 6’5 not 6’5.5. That’s a morning measurement and not sure how valid it is (could be 195cm 6’4.77 and rounded up as the NBA doesn’t do 1/8” increments). The difference with Young and Kobe isn’t all that much so more likely Young may be 6’4.25-6’4.5 and Kobe 6’4.75 like he said he was. And btw Draymond Green is taller than Kobe by a cm or half inch and Iggy looks taller than Draymond is. Iggy was measured 6’5.75 not 6’6” and not sure what time of day that took place. If Kobe’s wife says 6’4.75 it is likely the truth

hold up if you see him next to nick young it's obvious kobe's taller and swaggy p is around 6'5.5 without shoes..., I'd say he's 6-6 without shoes, put him next to 6-6 Andre Iguodala and kobe looks a bit taller
Borats Chicken said on 28/Dec/17
Rob, how long you reckon his head is? it kinda looks small..
Editor Rob: it's a bit smaller than an average 6ft 5 man's head...how much over 9 inches? Maybe not that much really.
Canson said on 27/Dec/17
@Junior: I’d give Scottie 200 and Melo could be 198.5/199 anywhere 198-99. As far as morning evening we are at the mercy of the time of day it took place and it appears 2003 was later imho. And Johnson upgrades people imho. He adds to Rose by 1.25” Melo by .5” and tried to inflate Kobe and Lebron. He has no basis other than because some soccer player who may or may not have really been measured at the height is that height they claim. So he adjusts to compensate which is beyond silly.
