Considering lonzo was given 6'4.25 without shoes, it was said he grew to 6'5, a bitch sketchy still. Let's say Lonzo is 6'4.25 still, there's a solid 2 inches, even 2.5 tbh
I could give lamelo a weak 6'7 if he claims it himself

I’ve been looking at more pics, and it seems melo is always in big footwear. Everywhere he goes he seems to have a footwear advantage. Still skeptical about his height. 6’6” flat is best case. If we get a pic of him next to Adam silver, then that should be enough evidence. Adam looks to be a good 6’3” maybe a hair over from what I’ve seen.

Has he grown since 2017? He only had a few inches on The Miz it seemed.

@Christian: yea I could see the 6’3.25 or .5 solely based off what he measured at the combine. However, after more research, over 6’3 doesn’t look likely imho. I’d have the weak 6’3 over strong. The real problem stems from Lonzo being overlisted. Lonzo has about 1.5” on LiAngelo. It looks more than what Junior is estimating. And JT met Lonzo and said he only looked 6’4” which is believable. I’d be surprised if he’s any taller than I am (I’ll give him up to 6’4.25) whereas Brandon Ingram I believed to be taller than he actually is. I expected Ingram to stay listed 6’9” or only go down to 6’8”. He’s 6’7 it turns out. Lonzo needs a downgrade to 6’4.5” (best case) imho even if I don’t believe he’s that tall.

His measurement doesn’t add up but in reality it’s hard to see it accurately as it’s distorted. Brandon Ingram looks taller against the chart than he really is.

Then there’s this one

Read the July 29th article at 414. Kuzma measured 6’8 morning (likely 6’7.5-.75) Tatum is around 6’7 next to Jaylen Brown and Ingram was measured and looks a legit afternoon 6’7”. Lonzo either has an uncanny ability to look shorter in pics or he’s not close to his listed height of 6’6”. He should’ve received a 6’5 listing by the NBA of its early morning.

Then there’s Josh Hart. Hart measured 6’4 in 2016 and 6’3.75 in 2017. My guess is he’s either 6’3.5 or 6’3.5-.75 range being one was likely later in the day but not an afternoon measurement. Hart doesn’t look that much shorter than Lonzo.

In some pics it can look up to 1” but others it can look like just half inch with Lonzo and Hart

@Junior
Of course, a strong 6'3" is still possible for him. I just think that the flat 6'3" is likelier, after seeing more pics of him. I had him at 6'3.25" or even 6'3.5" initially. But I always felt that the 6'4" listing was too high.
Canson said on 26/Nov/20
@Dillon Rice; that isn’t surprising. I’ve been saying for a while now that Lonzo’s best case is 6’4.5 not a worst case. I really believe JT’s assessment now a days after the pics I’ve seen. Maybe he’s my height when it’s said and done but that would explain 6’5 out of bed and 6’6.25 or more in shoes with the hair. I can see All 3 being 1/4” over the mark and being bumped up to the next inch. Gelo 6’6 Lonzo 6’7 Melo 6’8. But That’s how Lonzo got his 6’7”. But the 3” inflation seems consistent across the board. It’s at least 3 for Gelo.

I know physically he doesn’t look like a 6’5 guy

Click Here

Looking closely the top of his head is in the 6’6 range. That’s below 6’7” clearly. He’s in shoes too. And that’s likely in the morning. If Rob reduced to 6’4.5 it would be a good start
Canson said on 26/Nov/20
@Duhon: it could be Lavar’s weight and proportions that influence it. I wonder if he actually was his listed height however. Something is up with the Ball’s heights. I remember JT saying Lonzo is only 6’4 in person which is how he often looks in pics. Maybe max could be argued at 194cm but JT saying that was an eye opener, I’ve noticed the only one who has a pre draft on record is LiAngelo and his doesn’t quite add up. LaMelo is the tallest and his closely resembles his supposed measurement from his coach. The 6’7.25 I believe being a shoe height but I don’t rule out that being a morning measurement. Could he out of bed or an hour out or could be closer to a low. Meaning I don’t rule out 6’5 range for LaMelo (6’5-6’6 range) but also see the 6’6 as his max case. Lonzo and LiAngelo have been called 6’4 and 6’2 before by people who’ve met them. While I don’t believe Gelo is only 6’2, I wouldn’t be surprised if he only ended up at 189-190 range and maximum 6’3
Canson said on 25/Nov/20
@Ellis and Dillon and Junior: so Josh Hart has two measurements. One from 2016 (6’4) and 2017 (6’3.75). That said maybe he’s 6’3.5 afternoon height or possibly 6’3 5/8”. Lonzo still doesn’t have an inch on him. My guess is he’s 6’4.25 best case. Magic had too much height on him to be any higher. Magic appears to have at least 3” and Ingram and Kuzma tower Lonzo
Ellis said on 25/Nov/20
@Dillion Rice: The ball bros recently took a photo together, and it is not looking good for Gelo. Lonzo holds up really well with Lamelo, it is an inch difference, 1.25 inch difference at most. Lonzo is 6'4.5, Lamelo is 6'5.75, and Gelo is 6'3.25.
@Rob Paul: Check out the photo I'm talking about, it is the recent one up on Instagram. Lonzo is wearing a blue hat, but I reckon the top of his head is right at Lamelos hair line, it could even be higher, look how low that hat reaches, it reaches Lonzo's eye brows. Honestly, in that photo, in my opinion, that is looking to be a one inch difference. Lonzo is roughly 6'4.5-6'4.75 at a low, so Lamelo is looking around the 6'5.5-6'6 range, 6'6 tops.
Duhon said on 24/Nov/20
Liangelo probably claims he's 6'6" because that what his dad claims for himself, but they only look equal with the much higher hair Liangelo has Click Here . Lavar was listed at 6'5" during his brief NFL stint, I wonder if that is correct still? Click Here
Dillon Rice said on 24/Nov/20
@Christian 6’5 3/8” Agreed can’t see him taller than 6’3. I don’t understand how he gets 6’6 as his height. Tall guys exaggerate their height all the time and it doesn’t make sense to me. If you’re 6’7, why claim 6’9? Isn’t 6’7 enough? 6’9 is generally seen as less attractive by society than 6’7 I would think.

@Christian 6'5 3/8"
LiAngelo look a big 6'3. I haven't see him look below 6'3 1/4 yet but 6'6 claim was way too terrible for a lie.
Canson said on 24/Nov/20
@Dillon: it honestly wouldn’t surprise me if they all inflate 2.5-3” on their heights now that I’ve seen Gelo claim 6’6”. See my pics in my last post. Lonzo’s 6’5” isn’t even close if you see him with Tatum Kuzma or Ingram. He really just looks what JT guessed him at (6’4)”. Same with Josh Hart who measured 6’3.75” and has a 6’4 listing but Hart likely was an early morning measurement. Even if we gave Hart 6’3.5 (more likely 6’3.25-,5 range or just 6’3.25”), a case could be made for 6’4.25 for Zo. It wouldn’t surprise me if they all measure right out of bed plus shoes and round up

@Junior:

Go to the Jul 29, 2018 at 414 and you’ll see all of the all stars. Ingram is now listed at 6’7” so that’s likely his low. Kuzma measures 6’8 early AM most likely so I could see 6’7.5-.75 range for him. Lonzo isn’t just 3” shorter than Kuzma. Maybe he’s 6’4.5 somehow but I can’t see over the mark

Canson said on 24/Nov/20
@Christian: seems a common theme. Lonzo claims 6’7” and LaMelo is mysteriously listed 6’8”

@Junior: it’s not possible what you’re saying though. That’s the max he looks not the minimum. See him with Ingram or Kuzma or Hart. Josh Hart measured a morning 6’3.75”

Btw Liangelo claims 6’6 on his Twitter.

-

That's laughable. I'd put him at 6'3"-ish tops.
Dillon Rice said on 23/Nov/20
@Canson Yeah I’d agree. The 6’6 claim by LiAngelo on Twitter just seems ridiculous to me lol. That would make his brother 6’9 or something.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Nov/20
Canson,

I wouldn't think Lonzo is anything lower than 6'4 1/2 maybe JT had more footwear than Lonzo. Also LaVar Ball often look fractionally lower than Lonzo which i don't think he was ever 6'5 more a strong 6'4 closer to 6'4 1/4 now and maybe 6'4 1/2-5/8 peak since he wasn't that old. LiAngelo at worst look 3cm shorter than Lonzo not lower can't be 6'3 flat or under.
Canson said on 23/Nov/20
@Dillon: the 6’6 in shoes is hard to buy. I buy the 6’7.25 in sneaks but it’s possible it was held earlier in the day. However like Christian and Vincent said, it’s ok for a listing and it’s the most
Dillon Rice said on 23/Nov/20

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Nov/20
6'6" is ok, but no higher than this.
Dillon Rice said on 22/Nov/20
@Canson Unfortunately I only see that claim from one source and the wingspan at 6’6 seems sketchy low to me. But his height is hard to pinpoint because of the really high soled shoes and his hair. Also he’s very thin which makes him look taller.
Vincent Caleb said on 22/Nov/20
If he got measured 6’7.25 then typically he would be 6’6”. If you look closely though, he wears really thick footwear. For now I am going to stick with 6’6” flat though.
Canson said on 22/Nov/20
I agree with Junior. If the guy was listed 6’4 and is only 6’3, 6’5.5 is the most I could buy for LaMelo. But this isn’t surprising. I’ve said all along that Lonzo and LiAngelo are both over listed. JT has met Lonzo and said he’s only 6’4”. Maybe he’s my height 6’4.25”. That’s how he looks with Magic. LiAngelo was said to be 6’2”. That looks too low but he could be 6’2.5-6’3 range.

@Editor Rob: the 6’8 listing shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. All of the Balls lie about their height

@Alex Lewis: That guy in the instagram picture that Lamelo is standing with was listed at 6'4 in the old NBA, that most likely converts to 6'3 w/o shoes. He is struggling to look 3 inches taller than him, and considering the footwear that difference may be less than 3 inches, but I'll just leave it at 3 inches. The second photo of them, looks more like a 2 inch difference, and Lamelo has huge shoes.
@Canson: Lamelo might be 6'5.75 at a low, 6'6 afternoon height, that is my opinion. He seems to be a little bit over an inch taller than 6'4.5-6'4.75 low Lonzo Ball.
@Rob Paul: When in the day do you think Lamelo reaches 6'6?
Editor Rob
If he got 6ft 7.25 in sneakers then he could be that afternoon....however it was unclear from the podcast - the guy mentioned he thought he was a real 6ft 7 barefoot...

@Ellis: Afternoon height and a low are essentially the same thing. Mine is the same after I’ve been awake for about 7 or 7+ hours unless I do something to exert more

@Editor Rob and Ellis: if he were 6’6” morning he could be 6’5.5”
Canson said on 21/Nov/20
Wow if what Dillon said is true about 6’6 with shoes it’s bad news for the other brothers. They’re 6’4” (max) and that could be a stretch and 6’2 perhaps

If in this IG picture of his high school coach is 6'4 i couldn't see LaMelo over 6'5 1/2 which is consider LaMelo standing a little further from camera in both picture and that 1/2" more footwear. But maybe his coach was atually closer to 6'4 1/2 doesn't concern about a lowball 6'4 listing.
Editor Rob
Jermaine has been called as high as 6ft 5, he was a 6ft 3 back in 1994-5 click here
Canson said on 21/Nov/20
@Rampage and Editor Rob: the more I see, I agree with Rampage about the shoe height but that could be early morning 6’6” flat. He may only be 6’5 1/2” barefoot afternoon height. But if he is, he would be a normal low of 6’5.5” it wouldn’t be a case where he dipped below unless at an extreme low
Canson said on 21/Nov/20
I’d like to see a picture with Michael Jordan when he officially joins the team to see if he’s really 1/1.5” taller.
Canson said on 21/Nov/20
Alex Lewis said on 20/Nov/20
6.7 for me. He was measured at the draft combine without footwear! Hornets has him listed as 6.7 exactly.

There was no pre draft this year. His agent provides the 6’7.25 measurement this year. Didn’t indicate if it’s with or without shoes. Honestly with the guy in the pic, he struggles with 6’6”. Not to mention Rob still has Lonzo Ball 6’5 when he’s closer to 6’4”
Canson said on 21/Nov/20
The 6’6 listing looks better than 6’6.25

nice addition.yeah,i belive that he is 6ft6 flat at least he could be still growing

You'd never think LaMelo is a 6-and-a-half foot guy when you look at his thumbnail picture!

6ft6.25 from me. ⛹️‍♂️🏀⛹️‍♂️
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Nov/20
6ft8 is a round up from the 6ft7¼ which I gather was a shoe height.


Arguably you could tweak this 6ft6½. Guy beside him is what 6ft5ish, Rob?
Editor Rob
the guy I believe was his high school coach/manager listed at 6ft 4...

actually he's struggling to look 6ft 6 there and that's early this year...given his footwear advantage.

@RJT:

It would be pretty cool if Melo and LaMelo were the same height.
Editor Rob
See him rising up slightly on right foot with brother...
RJT said on 18/Nov/20
He's the youngest kid yet turned out to be the tallest.

Could be this or at least 6'6, seem noticeably taller than both his older brothers. Would be interesting to see how he looks next to Melo who is genuine strong 6'6.
Ellis said on 18/Nov/20
@Rob Paul: Thanks for the add! Apparently, there are recent rumors that he measured 6'6 in shoes and possesses a 6'6 wingspan, according to lonzowire.usatoday.com. I highly doubt he is only 6'6 in shoes, however I think there is a very good chance he is 6'6 w/o shoes(after all he got that 6'7.25 figure, which he could have easily worn sneakers that add 1.25 inches to obtain). Just curious, When in the day do you believe he measures 6'6.25? Also, that looks like just about a 3 inch difference with 6'4 NBA listed Jermaine Jackson(probably 6'3 w/o shoes). Overall, in my opinion, I think Lamelo is around 6'6 flat at a low.
Editor Rob
actually those heels Ball look bigger in the second shot on instagram...
Vincent Caleb said on 18/Nov/20
Good add. 6’6” flat IMO.
