Can someone post a screen shot of his 6’2.25 measurement? I thought there was a link here but I never got to see it.
I don't have it anymore, but there were both mentions in various news articles with both 2.25 and 2.5 figures.

he is a solid 6'2 but whether he is 6'2 or 6'3 i still would not want to be playing qb with him on the other side of the line, no thanks!!!

Taylor and Harry Carson
(Carson is also listed at 6'2 or 6'3 depending on the site) In this photo they are basically identical in height. If you zoom in and use the frame the top of Taylor's head is less than .5 inches higher than Carson's. Since it's on grass and we can't see footwear or posture, lets call them even with the chance LT is a smidge taller. Bear in mind they are both in their 50's here after brutal careers as LB's)
Carson and Derek Jeter.
Jeter has been consistently called 6'3, but I know that some on this site (Viper being the one I remember who first brought it up) that Jeter is more in the 6'2 range. He seems marginally taller here, but it's back when he still had hair. Also, Carson is slightly in front, but with worse posture, and the camera seems to be angled. Decent photo but not good enough to gauge an inch or less
My guess is that LT is 6'2.5-6'2.75. Jeter is 6'2.25-6'2.5 and Carson is 6'2-6'2.5

This re-affirms to be that Bam Bam Bigelow was a flat 6'0" (his early billing) and not the 6'3" billing he was given later on.

Well, just saw the downgrade. In this case, does that make Bigelow 6'1 1/2?
said on 10/Feb/18
rob why not 6'2 1/2? he could put that off
It's possible he was measured at both the 6ft 2.5 and .25 marks.

Hey Rob, maybe 6ft2⅜ could come into play here based on those measurements?
said on 5/Feb/18
This needs to be changed. He was measured at 6'2 1/4 in 1981. Click Here
Always knew he was 6'2.

Here's something on Bam Bam Bigelow, around his death.... mentions his height where he claimed he was 6'3 but back injuries and surgeries reduced him to 6'1. Definitely claiming shoe height. He was a peak 6'2 but it sounds like he was around 6'0 when he died

More 6'2.5 or strong 6'2" than 6'3. He may have lost burger who knows or may have always been this height he looks. Ow

Bam Bam with Ted DiBiase
Seeing pictures of him with LT and with TD, I agree with Derek's dad that Bam Bam was 6'2

First post in this thread in nearly a decade!!!!!
Found this picture of him with 6'3 7/8 Ndomnoking Suh and 6'4 1/6 Gerald McCoy.
Not looking a full 6'3 IMO. Camera angle isn't perfect but he looks 6'2.25-6'2.75.
Rob, any thoughts?

6'4" sounds right if he stands up straight
Socom said on 9/Dec/07
I have heard 6'4 many times. It was probably rounded up though.
Derek said on 11/Apr/07
He was slightly taller than Bam Bam. My dad said Bam Bam was 6'2", so LT is 6'3", 6'2 1/2" minimum. I agree Viper, the video with Theismann was indeed disturbing. Needless to say, he never played again after that.

LT adn bam bam were both around 6'3" LT may have been .5 inch shorterClick Here
said on 23/May/06
actually bam bam was listed at 6'3"Click Here

You could do a Bam Bam Bigelow (wrestler) page now Rob as there's a pic of Bam Bam and Lawrence Taylor face to face. Might be pics of him with other wrestlers floating around too; he was involved in a WWF storyline with Bigelow and even wrestled a match vs Bigelow at Wrestlemania 11. Bigelow was listed by the WWF as 6'4'' yet was shorter than Taylor.
