@Chaos Control: lol

@Bald: the 6’8 was likely a roundup. Ingram is only 6’7”. Look at him with 6’8 Kyle Kuzma

LeBron Has to be 6'8, or some taller, but not the full 6'8.5(6'9 is not up for debate)
Shane Battier was a legitimate 6'8, and if it is the morning time, they are not measured right after they wake, most people are in their afternoon height even after 20 minutes upon waking up, combine starts most presumably after an hour, so if worst comes to worst, maybe battier is 6'7.25-6'7.5, and Lebron still is taller
ChaosControl 6'2 1/2 said on 23/Jan/21
Trust me he under billed himself. I’ve got an incredibly biased photo that proves he’s at least 6’10!
Bald said on 23/Jan/21
I just want to make things clear about Brandon ingrams height! He measured 6’8 barefoot when he was 17 years old! He is obviously one of the guys that purposely stood loosely to get a 6’7 measurement! If you forced him to stand straight he would measure in at exactly 6’8 and 6’7.75 at the very worst. There is a reason he looks so close in height to Ben Simmons and others 6’8 or 6’9 players! I’m just not a fan of people calling him 6’7 when he’s clearly 67.75 at his worse! As far as LeBron James this measurement is about right. He could be almost 6’7.5 but he’s not lower than your listing!
DaxPax said on 22/Jan/21
I think he needs an upgrade to 6'7.5'' at least.
viper said on 21/Jan/21
Wiseman measured 6-11
Canson said on 20/Jan/21
@Viper: yea 7’ barefoot tops. He only got listed 7’ so that means he could be under
Canson said on 20/Jan/21
@Shane: and now they have Mike Conley Jr listed taller than Mitchell. He’s listed 6’1 and Mitchell 6’. Conley Jr measured 5’11.5 when he was drafted and does look shorter than Mitchell. Honestly, I believe his 6’1.25 measurement but just earlier in the day perhaps. He’s minimum 6’0.75 for his afternoon height imho. I have a feeling that maybe their listings were transposed

go to the last slide
if la la is 5'5.5, lebron has to be 6'8, at least from this phot, him and her are both crouching, she's barely at his neck, head size 10 inches, coverage of neck about 4.5 inches, 6'8 on the spot
Canson said on 19/Jan/21
@Shane: very interesting isn’t it lol? Mitchell’s listing is confusing. I didn’t think he looked as low as 6’0” but I wonder about his listing because of the other inconsistencies in listings. Kyle Kuzma at 6’10”? 😂 they did that because he’s an inch taller than Lebron. Kuzma measured 6’8 at the combine and had that listing last season
Canson said on 19/Jan/21
@goma76: Ingram was boosted an inch this year. He’s 6’7 in reality which is what he was listed last year. Some players got their shoe listings again this year which was his case. They have Zion and Ingram an inch this year. I doubt Ingram is less than 6’7 flat (he and Lebron are the same height in pics). I have Zion maximum 6’5.5” (6’6 morning). Kuzma didn’t grow though. He’s 6’8” max. They only made him 6’10 this year since Lebron is listed 6’9” and he’s taller than Lebron like Rob said. Kuzma was listed 6’9 as a rookie then 6’8 last season 6’10 now. Kuzma looks max 6’8 (maybe 6’7.75 worst case) with 6’9.75 Anthony Davis. They also boosted Markieff Morris to 6’10” which he was listed earlier in his career before last season where he was reduced to 6’8”. I doubt Morris is as tall as Kuzma. Morris measured 6’7.75 when drafted and likely a morning height unless he’s grown since
Canson said on 19/Jan/21
@Recapa: yea imho 6’1 or 6’2”. Could look up to 6” shorter than his dad. I could see him being maybe 6’4-6’6”. I’m not sure he’s gonna be 6’7 like his dad
Shane Gray said on 19/Jan/21
@Canson: so what is going on with the Jazz roster? After season started, they had Mitchell back at 6'3", Clarkson at 6'5", Ingles at 6'8", etc? Now Mitchell down to 6'0". Did NBA get upset and actually go measure these guys late in the day and verify the rosters? Makes no sense Mitchell dropped even an inch from last years listing when he dropped 2 inches last year. I'm about done with the NBA micromanaging listings, masks etc ...
Lover_thorn3 said on 18/Jan/21
A solid 200CM I’d list him just under 6’7
goma76 said on 18/Jan/21
@Canson
Ingram is listed at 6’8” so Lebron legitimate his 6’8.5” (rounded at 6’9”)
Kuzma listed at 6’10” still growing
goma76 said on 18/Jan/21
@Canson
Ingram is listed at 6’8” so Lebron legitimate his 6’8.5” (rounded at 6’9”)

about bronny i think that he is rumouremd to being 6ft4 now which is obviously not the case .@Canson,i have him around 6ft2 now how about you and how tall do you expect him to ending up being.
viper said on 16/Jan/21
It's possible they just screwed up his height at the combine.

Charles Bassey measured 6-10 barefoot at a camp but at the combine measured
6-8.75 barefoot

Kuzma looks taller than Lebron
Canson said on 16/Jan/21
And now Kyle Kuzma is listed 6’10 lol. He was measured and listed 6’8 last season. Even when he came into the league he was only listed 6’9”. Guess they had to keep up with Lebron’s fake measurement. That just goes to prove Lebron is 6’7 when Markieff Morris and Kuzma are both listed taller than him and they really are

@Canson @Rob Donovan Mitchell has claimed 6'4" and even 6'4" last year.
Editor Rob
In October 2019 Utah put out 6ft 1 for him, but he's been downlisted to 6ft now.

Only a flat 6ft would be a surprise! How could he really go from having 6ft 1.25 without shoes in 2017 to near 6ft without shoes now...

@Editor Rob: no more of a surprise than Damian Lillard. He’s clearly not 6’1”. Colin Cowherd met him and said he’s 6’0”. Then look at JJ Redick. Listed 6’3 today by the NBA after the new measurements in 2019 but he measured 6’4”. So Mitchell’s is not a surprise if he really is
viper said on 16/Jan/21
Bassey measured 6-10 barefoot at a camp, lol

James Wiseman measured 6-11.5 at one camp, so he's at least 6-11

@Dillon Rice:
That’s just a bad camera angle though, look how tall Jay-Z looks since he is on the same side as Bron. You cannot just go by one pic, so here is a different comparison:
Click Here
Looks like 2 inches taking camera advantage into account. Lebron was measured 6’7.25” shortly before afternoon, and Peyton was measured 6’5.25” shortly before afternoon.
Canson said on 15/Jan/21
@Dillon: that’s 2” not 3-4. Obviously Derek Jeter is 3” shorter than Manning and 5 shorter than Lebron

Camera angle is the explanation


Look at Magic with Peyton Manning (he also had camera angle in the 2nd pic)

@Canson some teams have different players at different heights this year depending on the site. Some rosters don't match up all the way on NBA.com compared to ESPN.

Lebron has an easy 3-4 inches on Peyton Manning. There’s no way it’s only a 2 inch difference. I don’t know how tall either is exactly, but you can’t have Lebron 6’7 while Manning is 6’5. Just makes no sense at all. And camera angle can’t be used as an explanation here because he looks 3 inches bare minimum taller in nearly every photo together.

The NBA measured Chris Silva at his real height of 6-8.

The pro basketball combine measured him at 6-10 in shoes
Canson said on 11/Jan/21
@Chaos Control: funny part is the NBA started listing some guys in shoes again this season (reverting to the old listings) but never reverted guys who “allegedly” grew back to their previous listing. Obviously Commissioner Silver wasn’t serious last year being he has spent time around LeBron and Chris Paul and both guys allegedly grew. He knows they aren’t as tall as they’re listed but didn’t enforce it
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 11/Jan/21
Wikipedia has him at 6’9 and 250, because of course it does

Sadly the NBA has gotten worse with heights

Interesting that Coby White was inflated to 6’5 but Zach Levine (measured 6’4.5) was reduced from 6’6 to 6’5”. Levine is taller than White

Wow. Jeff Teague is listed 6’3 and measured 6’0.25 in 2009 which specified morning measurements and that many players had measured 1/2” taller than 2008. That’s a 3+ inch inflation if he didn’t grow
Canson said on 2/Jan/21
@GreyV: Melo’s listing is decent considering he would measure a full 6’7 out of bed or a hair over. He could’ve gotten 6’6.5 earlier in the day and been rounded up. He looks around his draft measurement in person. That said they should’ve left LeBron at 6’8”
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 1/Jan/21
@GreyV it could just be that the guy who takes their stats can’t guess height, a friend of mine who claims 5’3 (don’t know his real height) assumed a 6’6 guy (who’s also claimed 6’7) as 6’10
GreyV said on 31/Dec/20
Man, the NBA listings are all over the place again. So much for enforcing no-shoe height listings and whatnot.

I think it's not that much of an issue to be listed 1" higher than your real height like AD for instance, but 2"+ is too much.

Just look at Ben Simmons' new listing for crying out loud. LMAO

Btw, Carmelo is literally listed at 6'7" now, but LeBron managed to get a 6'9" listing. Guess being next to Magic helped it. smh
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 31/Dec/20

He used to be billed 6'2" though. Wonder why they changed it.

@Christian Dominick is listed 6’0 on WWE Network and 6’1 on Google
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 29/Dec/20
@Chaos
Isn't Dominik billed 6'2" though? Or maybe they lowered it now? And I know he's not in WWE anymore, but Dean Ambrose was billed 6'4".
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 28/Dec/20
@Christian but Rey and MVP still have their stats from the 2000s when everyone was way overbilled, and Dominik is billed 6’0 (are you saying Dominick is 5’10.5?). I don’t know about NXT stars because I don’t watch it. I will give you Styles
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Dec/20
@Chaos
Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, AJ Styles and MVP just to name a very few. All I named are inflated by 2.5" at least. And the NXT guys also, such as Cole and Gargano.
Canson said on 27/Dec/20
@Viper: he looks 6’8” most of the time imho
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 26/Dec/20
@Christian what are the craziest modern listings? The weights are rubbish (no way Matt Riddle weighs 216lbs, he’s 185 max) but most of the heights are only an inch over
viper said on 25/Dec/20
West looks 6-7 a lot of the time
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Dec/20
@Chaos
If anything, it's just as inflated as before. Although many of the current top guys are billed more moderately, like Rollins, Mcintyre, Reigns, Lesnar, Orton, Keith Lee, and Sheamus (who's now at 6'3"), some of the midcarders and the lower tier guys get crazy listings.
Canson said on 25/Dec/20
How in the world is he listed 6’9 and Melo 6’7 now?
Canson said on 24/Dec/20
I would give PG 6’7.25-.3
Kawhi around 6’5.5-6’5.75
Canson said on 23/Dec/20
@Viper: see my pics with PG and David West on PG’s page. West was listed 6’9 but measured 6’8.25”. He looked it tbh but worst case 6’8”. He had PG by about an inch
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 23/Dec/20
@Jed strange because WWE wrestlers are less overbilled nowadays. Back in the 90s a guy my height would be called 6’6 but nowadays they’d call me 6’3 max
Mickie said on 23/Dec/20
@ChaosControl - Do you mean peak heights or current for any of those who shrunk? I'd say Bjornsson and peak Mane might be the tallest. If we are using current heights, the Undertaker is the shortest.
Jed said on 23/Dec/20
Rob, I don’t know if it’s a recent phenomenon, but even ‘official’ measurements nowadays seem to be miles off. Just the other day Chris Bumstead (the bodybuilder) measured in at 6’1.5 for Mr Olympia Classic, a key point because it allows him to weigh an extra 10lbs (he also measured in at 6’1.5 last year). And yet the guy is clearly measured, on camera, by a YouTuber at just about (could be slightly under) 6’1 in running shoes this January. And he claims 6’ himself, even cutting weight to make sure he’d qualify if he was measured under 6’. Ronaldo was given an extra inch by a few years ago, again despite being measured on that documentary years back. The NFL purports to measure players barefoot for the combine yet has guys listed the same height with clear daylight between them.

And now Lebron.
Editor Rob
There might be some small margin of error with different devices, but 1.5 inches seems a huge margin.

Something seems up with that guy's measurements.
Canson said on 22/Dec/20
@Viper: if even that tall: I would say 6’7.25 is possible but he gives that impression he is faller due to his build. I doubt kawhi is 6’6 flat like listed and he looks 1.5 shorter. I’d be hard pressed to see more
Canson said on 22/Dec/20

I’ve got a comparison, who’s tallest out of this list:
Lebron James
Hafthor Bjornsson
Tyler Mane
Kane
Undertaker
Tyson Fury
Richard Osman
Dr Disrespect
All solidly between 6’7 and 6’7.5, if someone could put these guys in order of height, thanks in advance
Canson said on 20/Dec/20
@Duhon: but his in shoes height when drafted was 6’8” which is likely why he got 6’8 listed the entire time. It may have also been due to the position he played where although listed as a small forward, he played some guard on the early Cavs teams when they had Darius Miles etc. he may have been content and the 6’8 listing may have been to make him more appealing or it was the former. If he had been listed 6’9” back then it wouldn’t have been as bad but he should only be listed 6’8” now. However, The real focal point of discussion here is that they’re alleging he grew to 6’8.5” which he really didn’t. Now That actually should’ve been his height in basketball sneakers all along like you said. If arguing for the time of day, I used to think weak 6’7” but likely now a full 6’7” for him for his afternoon height. I still get a taller impression from guys who fall to around 6’7.5 than I do him
Duhon said on 19/Dec/20
LeBron's height being exaggerated by the NBA is being exaggerated here. He measured 6'7.25" barefoot and got listed at 6'8" for 90% of his career until about a season ago. So assuming he didn't grow at all since 18 he was rounded up .75" for the majority of his career, which is actually less than the majority of NBA players.

Going by NBA standards he should have been listed at 6'9" from the get go.
Andy5'93/4 said on 17/Dec/20
Hey rob what do you think LeBrons gonna get listed at in a few years? I think by 2023 the NBA is gonna list lebron at 6’10
Editor Rob
I think in all fairness he'll maintain the same listing with the NBA.

Donovan Mitchell is listed 6’3 again on Wikipedia when he was reduced to 6’1 previously (last season)
watertaker188 said on 16/Dec/20
Click Here At 1:42 in the video, Gilbert Arenas claims LeBron is 6'10.5" in shoes on the basketball court...This is getting ridiculous. So LeBron is almost 6'11" with shoes now, according to Arenas? Are people going to start calling LeBron a 7 footer soon? LeBron simply does not have the proportions of a 6'9"-6'10" guy.

Here is LeBron and Kuzma (Kuzma was measured a legit 6'8" at the combine)

Click Here

You can clearly see LeBron is not far off from 1 inch shorter than Kuzma.


Kevin Love was measured 6'7.75" at the combine, and LeBron is not even taller than him:

LeBron is a flat 6'7" in my opinion.
Editor Rob
If Lebron keeps playing till age 40, the man's gonna be getting bumped to the 7 foot club! 😆

@Viper: he could’ve measured it but was it a morning measurement?
viper said on 15/Dec/20
So Ohio State has had 2 players in the last few years measure their listed height, 6-7 Keita Bates Diop and Kaleb Wesson which is odd
viper said on 15/Dec/20
I was sitting down low at the Baltimore Arena for a Terps game and I could tell Jalen Smith had a but of an edge in height on 6-8.75 Bruno Fernando.

Both Jalen and Kaleb measured 6-9.25. Kaleb had always measured 6-8 before Click Here

I will say Kaleb does look 6-9 in his Ohio State team photos, so I wanna say its a legit measurement. Strange though
Canson said on 15/Dec/20
@Viper: I see Wiseman is listed 7’0” on the Warriors Roster. Funny because the Pelicans Roster on ESPN is back to shoe height listings. Zion is listed 6’7” and Ingram 6’9”. Same goes for Toronto. I don’t get the inconsistency. Then other ransoms like Derozan listed 6’7 again and a few others being placed back at their initial listings. Of course you won’t see that in the opposite direction such as Lebron going back to 6’8 or better yet his actual height 6’7”. 6’8” in this setting would be a fair listing for Lebron if they had measured him out of bed or an hour or two or out of bed at 6’7.5”
Max Gherardi said on 15/Dec/20
Lebrun James must have grown another inch since his draft measurement. It’s official, he is just over 6’8” without shoes.
Canson said on 15/Dec/20
@Viper: I wonder if he’s not really 6’8.75 being he measured 6’9.25”. And this year they were done virtually
viper said on 14/Dec/20
It's funny how Keita Bates Diop is listed at 6-9 in some places when he was listed at 6-7 in college
viper said on 14/Dec/20
Hard to believe Kaleb Wesson measured
6-9 when he certainly looked shorter than 6-9 measured Jalen Smith all the time on the court
Canson said on 12/Dec/20
Agree with Recapa. I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t even lose a full inch with all of the muscle he has but then again I don’t rule out a hair over 6’7
Canson said on 12/Dec/20
@Viper: I think Harden’s hair gives the illusion it’s less. That’s at least 2.5. He can look minimum 6’6 if Harden is 6’3.5

bronny looks at least 6ft2 in that pic and he reached 16 lately he seems to grows steadily i,ll expect him to end up from 6ft4 at least to maybe if he is lucky 6ft7 max.
Canson said on 6/Dec/20
@Duhon: I didn’t know it was 16. I do remember him saying he measured 6’6 once though and knew about the 6’7.25 at the combine. But I agree that makes sense. As for his son, I’d say looking at him he looks around 6’2 these days
Duhon said on 5/Dec/20
@Canson he said he was measured 6'6" at 16 and his next official measurement was the 6'7.25" he got at the draft as an 18 year old. Seems like a relatively standard growth from 16 to 18 for a boy. His son may or may not follow that path but we won't know officially for a bit.
Canson said on 4/Dec/20
@Robbe: in ref to your August 20th post, I can buy around 6’8 for Malone. He admitted once to being 6’8”

Click Here

I would put Durant as a weak half or 6’9.25/6’9 3/8 range or .25 perhaps which explains why he’s noticeably shorter than Davis
Canson said on 4/Dec/20
@Duhon; I wonder how much Lebron grew past 16. But my guess is he grew from maybe 6’6 to 6’7 range where he measured at the draft

Is his son finished growing though?
Duhon said on 2/Dec/20
@Canson seeing all the debates around Baron Trumps height I almost feel it only makes sense to add a page when we know the individual is done growing. Bronny actually seems like he just hit a development spurt but he's only 16 still and we his dad grew somewhat past that age.

Lebron is no taller than he’s listed
fjafjkajf said on 2/Dec/20
IMO, LeBron is a solid 6'8,6'8.25, if the .25 holds true, a bit hard to distinguish the last .25 in to compare 6'8.25 and 6'8.5.
No NBA players wears extra soles to make themselves taller, adding extra things to shoes makes playing very uncomfortable (LeBron toes been bad since year 3 of the league tbh)
Click Here
this shows a once inch difference between 6'9.5 kd, this is as good as you get when comparing
Canson said on 1/Dec/20
His son is being touted as 6’4 now a days. He deserves a page btw
Kit said on 28/Nov/20
Lebron obviously slouches bad when taking photos. In every photo op, he looks shorter. I every game photo where he is hugging or talking to another player, and standing straight, he looks taller. We have to go by in-game photos where he is standing straight.
Canson said on 22/Nov/20
@Fried Chicken: more than likely. 6’7” would be his normal low. He may lose a full inch at that height
FriedChicken said on 20/Nov/20
First thing in the morning he is, Realist.
Canson said on 18/Nov/20
@Hyper: I would’ve given VV a weak 6’5 peak height. Maybe not 6’4.5 but 6’4.75 best case. I always had a hard time seeing him as a legit 6’5 like a John Cleese at his peak. Today he could be 194. But either way Lebron is 6’7” next to him not 6’8.5”. My guess for afternoon height is 6’7” flat for LBJ
Realist said on 18/Nov/20
Lebron is 6'8 easy no doubt
Hyper said on 17/Nov/20
@Canson

Even Owen Benjamin gave a taller impression with Vince Vaughn, than Lebron James. Of course, I’m not saying he’s taller than Lebron, but 6’8.5” is an exaggeration, at worst. A myth at the very least.
Hyper said on 17/Nov/20
@Yao

Oh. Lebron James is closer to the camera than Vince Vaughn, yet he wasn’t that much different from him.

Sorry man. Vaughn is listed 6’5”, but he could be 6’4.75” at worst.
Canson said on 16/Nov/20
@RJT: possible that they’re these. I would say afternoon heights 1/4” less for both but the difference looks close to what you said. So I’m thinking with Kobe it was only 2.25”
RJT said on 16/Nov/20

Pause at 0.6, Bron looked to have more than 2" on MJ. I assume it was in 2003 before Bron's rookie year.

Bron 6'7.25"

@Fried Chicken: right. Today he would have as much on Vaughn as he does on Michael Jordan imho
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
@Hyper: I think it’s the camera angle playing a factor. I’ve seen more recent pics of Vaughn (last 10 years) and he would probably pass for somewhere around 194 today. Maybe in his prime, he could’ve been closer to 6’5 though
FriedChicken said on 15/Nov/20
There's 0 chance hes 4" taller than Vaughn.
Hyper said on 14/Nov/20
It’s funny how a 6’8.5” can look this short, next to Vince Vaughn, who’s behind the camera.

Click Here

Now, I’m beginning to see why Rob kept Vince Vaughn at near 6’5”.

Either Lebron James needs a downgrade to 6’6.75”, or Vince Vaughn is really 6’5”, more so than I thought.

It is not considered enough that LBJ has grown at least 1 inch since his rookye year.
Stop posting old photos of LBJ rookye and during the first appearances in US team

The pics posted are not from his rookie season. The US team pics are from 2008 when he was 24. Don’t make excuses

Lebron can struggle with 6-7 sometimes next to Kobe. 6-7 1/8 is a safe bet imo.

Ben Simmons can be 6'9 1/2 only with shoes on same as Lebron being 6'8 1/2.

Ben Simmons was also listed at 6'9.5" which is clearly not the case either.
Mickie said on 28/Oct/20
It's pretty conclusive. He's a good 6'7", but that's it.
Canson said on 27/Oct/20
It’s not unfathomable to grow as Anthony Davis grew an inch but looking at him With Davis he’s not 6’8.5 clearly. He looks what he did when he came in and he does with guys like Carmelo Anthony who’s still what he was when he came in when you see him in person as another poster also validated. Seeing both next to Kobe Bryant who measured 6’4.75, Lebron is not 4” taller. Lebron has 2-2.5” on Kobe and max 1” on Melo. Melo had about 1.5” on Kobe tops
Canson said on 27/Oct/20
A 6’9.75 guy simply wouldn’t have this much height on a 6’8.5 guy

Click Here

He’s also slightly shorter than Kuzma who is a 6’8” morning measured guy. Meaning Lebron being morning measured should’ve been 6’7.5 or 6’7.75 himself and remained listed at 6’8” which was what most people here expected

@Recapa: it’s a lot better than his new height on a NBA roster. 6’9 lol or 6’8.5? I could buy him passing for 6’7.5” next to other guys who have morning heights from the combine if we base it off that
Canson said on 26/Oct/20
@RJT: yea he looks extremely tall when he stands straight in general. But extremely tall is a guy (in my book) is a guy measuring 200cm or more around lunch or afternoon. He never looked as tall as karl Malone who was 6’8” barefoot or a guy like Chris Webber who was 6’8-6’9 (by his coach’s admission). He really looked shorter than Magic Johnson too
Hyper said on 26/Oct/20
@goma76

Crap my bad. Point still remains, Lebron is nowhere near 6’8.5” when he’s shorter than people who measured 6’8” in the morning.

@Canson

All of those are reasons why we can’t trust NBA listings. We always have to find their measurements.
RJT said on 25/Oct/20
When LeBron doesn't wear baggy clothes like in above pic, he actually looks extremely tall

Canson said on 25/Oct/20
@Hyper: they’re almost the same. If anything George edges him very slightly. It’s less than half inch. Makes sense if George measured early morning at 6’7.75”. George is probably 6’7.25/.5 and Lebron 6’7” maybe a hair over. Obviously he’s not 6’9” though and we know that now. George is listed 6’8” and he’s just as tall if not taller. I’ve seen many pics of them next to each other and I’m hard pressed to see Lebron being taller

recapa said on 25/Oct/20
the average guess is total bull
Canson said on 25/Oct/20
@Hyper: Yea Blake was Actually 6’8.5 morning but looking at him with other players like 6’9.75” DeAndre Jordan unless DJ grew, he looks at least a full 2” shorter. with Carmelo Anthony in that pic you posted it looks minimal but I’ve seen others where Lebron has an inch. One thing i will say is that there are a variety of factors here. One, Carmelo didn’t join the Blazers until after the season began. They kept his listed height the same. But looking at the top tier of players, most of them didn’t shrunk other than Anthony Davis who didn’t want to be listed 6’11” to begin with. Maybe you could throw Kyrie Irving in there but that’s it. Top Tier includes guys like Lebron, Greek Freak, Harden, Kawhi Leonard, Westbrook, Irving, AD, Luka Doncic (now id put him in there). Just speaking of these guys, Lebron “grew” an inch lol, Antotoukompo, stayed the same which would be accurate in the morning, Harden stayed the same when he’s not even a legit 6’4”, Leonard stayed the same when he is likely a weak 6’6”, Westbrook stayed the same which I expected if he measured 6’2.5 or more in the morning, Irving lost an inch, Davis lost an inch and Doncic stayed the same. If we mentioned guys like Damian Lillard, he lost an inch but his height is off the charts exaggerated. Colin Cowherd said he met him and even claimed he’s just 6’0”. Other guys like Paul George who could be lumped into that (to me he’s a high 2nd tier but still a superstar) and he went down an inch. Blake also went down 1 inch. KD and Lebron both went up an inch. For KD it’s expected if it its a morning measurement for him and Lebron I expected to remain 6’8” from him being 6’7.5” or above in the early morning

Lebron James is also shorter than Blake Griffin and they both have played against each other.

And Black Griffin was measured 6’8” in the morning.

And Lebron is well shorter than 6’7 1/2” listed Paul George. It’s definitely more than one inch, here. — Click Here
Canson said on 24/Oct/20
@Robbe: I think the listings Rob has for Crouch and Lebron are close to what to expect. Maybe it’s an additional 1/4” but it’s really more to do with Crouch’s proportions. Lebron can look extremely tall when he stands straight too.

As for Ferdinand and Dwade, it’s the same. I would expect Ferdinand to be taller at least proportionately. I would give Ferdinand the extra 1/4” upgrade and call him 6’3.25” While I’d call Wade 6’3” flat based on how he looks in pics
Canson said on 24/Oct/20
@Christian: agreed. I was just saying that a pair of shoes wouldn’t guarantee 6’5”. Even a regular basketball shoe may just mean 6’4.75 but then you get an Air Max that makes someone 6’5”. Of course you’re right about average would be around 6’4.5” for some being it’s 1” shoe
Canson said on 24/Oct/20
@Christian: agreed
Bbroccc said on 24/Oct/20
It is possible that he is actually a tad over 6’8 or even closer to 6’9 now - because lets not forget his pre-draft Official measurements (As mentioned above) were done RIGHT after he graduated from high school - or even possibly during the beginning of his senior year (since he was already talking to teams) - so with that being said, since he was 18 and since he grew fast as an adolescent, it possible that he was not done growing- he might have put on a whole other inch
Canson said on 23/Oct/20
@Hyper: I’d say he looks over 6’7” but it’s more 6’7.25 or .5 like he’s listed. He doesn’t look almost 6’8” imho on the field. But then again I have Gwen 6’3” flat afternoon height

@Editor Rob and Hyper: he used to claim 6’8” prior to this season and even claimed 6’7” before. I think we can agree seeing him with Udonis Haslem that he’s a solid 6’7” minimum while I have Haslem around 6’6,5ish. It appears that they did that to make him on par with Magic Johnson as Philly did the same with Ben Simmons. Simmons is 6’8”. That makes what they do more impressive
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Oct/20

6’3 1/2 wouldn’t necessarily make him 6’5 wearing shoes. If it’s a pair of boat shoes only 6’4 1/8” or 6’4 in flats.

With some basketball shoes he may reach 6'5". But generally, he'd be around 6'4 1/2" in a typical shoe.
Hyper said on 23/Oct/20
@Rob

He does look over 6’7” with Gwendoline, especially if her basic heels make her 6’6” range a bit.

Honestly if anyone is a candidate for 6’7 5/8”, I wouldn’t doubt Crouch is one of them.

I don't think Crouch is much taller than LeBron. David Beckham (180cm) is just under Crouch's mouthlevel, compared to 185cm listed Mo Williams, who is probably 183cm barefoot, next to Lebron.

Crouch and Lebron are within an inch i would say.

We can't see Gwendoline's shoes with Suotamo, but more than likely she is wearing similar shoes like with Crouch. Otherwise she would be on Suotamo's mouthlevel. Crouch is easy 3in shorter than Suotamo. Current listings for Crouch and LeBron are ok in my opinion.

Lebron probably not got the best posture there. It's interesting though Crouch claimed 6ft 7, yet Lebron goes with 6ft 9.

Crouch is listed 6’7.5” here. Physically he does look taller than Lebron but that’s his build. If they stood next to each other, Crouch (If he’s really as tall as listed) would edge him slightly but I wouldn’t be surprised if Crouch dips to 6’7.25” himself being he claims 6’7”. I still think Crouch could edge him but only by 1/4” which isn’t noticeable unless back to back
Canson said on 20/Oct/20
@Robbe: Reeve was at least 6’3”. He could look close to what Rob listed him in his prime. Maybe he was a strong 6’3” or worst case something like a hair over the mark
Robbe said on 20/Oct/20
Reeve was not shorter than Chase. Anybody can see Chase is standing at his best while Reeve is slouching in that pic. Standing tall Reeve would be easily same height as Chase. Reeve was taller than legit 6'2 guys like Gene Hackman and George H.W. Bush, so he can't be 6'1 range.

Click Here

Pau Gasol was listed at 7ft when he played in NBA, so he is obviously not taller than that. Actually he looks shorter than 6'11.75 Joel Embiid, compared to Andre Drummond.

Click Here

Joel has much higher shoulder height than Pau, and higher eyelevel, but Pau has bigger head, espesially his forehead looks huge. Hard to tell where his tophead is, due to his hairstyle, just like in Embiid's case. Anyway, Joel looks taller there, in my opinion.

Lebron James is significantly shorter than Peter Crouch, next to David Beckham.

Bradley is taller than Yao, I give him that but Rob list them correctly at just 1/2" taller.

I wouldn't take that pic when Bradley looked an inch taller than Yao as proof, clearly he was staunching and Yao in more lax posture.

I mean, this is what happened when 1 guy in relaxed posture, and the other guy staunching as to make him taller

6'7.25" is fair for LeBron's low imo.

Lebron is only slightly taller than 6’6.5-6’7” Udonis Haslem. That’s 1/2” between them after they hugged. Then Davis has 2.5-3”” on him. Rob also has Dwight Howard close to what he is. Davis is clearly taller than Howard too. I believe the measurement for Davis to be near a low while the 6’9.75” measurement for Howard is likely a morning height. He’s probably just 6’9” flat

In the video, Lebron doesn’t look under 6’7” flat. 6’7.25 is debatable.

@FriedChicken (cool name BTW) it’s cause lots of people add 1-2 inches, if a 5’9 guy claims 5’11, a legit 6’5 now has to say 6’7. This gets worse as many athletes inflate height and weight, NBA players are measured in shoes and WWE wrestlers are often overbilled. If Lebron is 6’7.25 as listed, then he’s most likely 6’8.5-6’9 in shoes and since he’s so tall, most people won’t question it

@Julian: I think his 6’8” claim previously was his shoe height. I remember he’s claimed 6’7” twice too. I think his listing here is decent although it may not be an afternoon height. Maybe a few hours out of bed or around lunchtime for him. I can see a solid 6’7” though or maybe a hair under worst case. It’s interesting that Kyle Kuzma is taller than him and even Markieff Morris looks taller (Lebron called him 6’10” which is his previous listing before being reduced to 6’8 this year). Both guys are listed 6’8” and he’s listed 6’9”. Kuzma measured 6’8 at the combine but I suspect afternoon height would come out to a weak 6’8” range

@Canson: Yeah, that wasn't the best pic, but there are other shots on the same day where the angle is fair and you can see the height difference. Look at the pic below.

Click Here

She is literally under his shoulder. Also, even the tallest basketball shoes don't give 2+ inches. The most important heard was a little over 1.5" inches. Let's say he's getting 1.5 inches and her sandals are giving 0.5 inches. That's a one inch advantage for LeBron. Her head is slightly bent, but even with it up it's obvious she'll still be under it. Let's give it to her, and let's also give LeBron his 6'7.25. 6'7.25" plus 1.5" is 6'8.75". Unless he has the shortest head and neck in the world for his height, his head and neck should be at least 13.75", which puts his shoulder in shoes at 5'7" Take off her shoes and she's at 5'6.5" Do you see how many things has to go in her favor to get even 5'6.5"? I'll give LeBron the 6'7.25" and say LeBron has the full 1 inch shoe advantage, but I'm thinking his shoulder is likely 5'6.75" in shoes. She looks to be 1/2 inch under at 5'6.25" in shoes. Barefoot, that's 5'5.75" and that's the absolute max I can believe for her. If LeBron is 6'7" there with 1.25" shoes, that puts his shoulder at 5'6.25" take away her shoes and the difference between his shoulder and her head and you get 5'5" flat. Gabrielle Union has her by at least 0.75" and I never bought 5'6.75" for Gabby. I give her 5'6" max.

@Editor Rob : so what would your guess be for lebron's peak just out of bed height?
Editor Rob
Lebron out of bed has a chance of clearing 6ft 8 easily, maybe he got wheeled into the medical center and the first thing he did was get measured 😆

@Editor Rob: I have a hard time believing 6’8.5 out of bed though. 6’8 yes with ease. I almost see them giving him that listing to make him comparable to Magic or he measured close to a low or within 1/4” and in shoes. A lot of players such as Danny Green received questionable listings. Green is shorter than 6’5.5-6’6 Kawhi Leonard and you even said Kawhi could be as low as 6’5.5”. I doubt over 6’5.75”. Green measured 6’4.5 in the afternoon and 6’5.25 morning height. If he grew I could see 195cm but he got 6’6”. I could buy 6’4.5 though. Then look at Jae Crowder who is 6’4.75 morning height and kept his 6’6” listing. Having heard from someone who’s met Crowder he’s about my height
Editor Rob
I don't rule it out entirely, a guy his size has better chance of 3cm shrinkage than a smaller guy like myself.
Canson said on 8/Oct/20
@Ice: I wonder about the footwear in the one pic. I’ve never worn his shoes but I’ve heard that Lebron’s shoes are pretty thick. But yea if he’s 6’7” she’s not 5’7”. She looks like she’s 5’5-5’6 range. Maybe 5’6” if we account for a possible difference

Even accounting for a slouch and shoe advantage, that is not a 12 inch difference. No way!

Canson said on 5/Oct/20
@Editor Rob: I’m not convinced that the 6’8.5” isn’t a morning shoe height. Lebron can look right at or slightly under 6’7” at times. Never less than 6’6.75” but the video with Kyrie when he made a reference to 6’6.5” says something
Canson said on 4/Oct/20
@Ice: she’d be a good candidate for Rob but unfortunately she isn’t as popular as someone like La La who had her own name before Carmelo began dating her.

I have pegged Savannah at 5'5", 5.5.5" at best. Gabrielle Union is listed on this site at 5'6.75" and could even be as low as 5'6" (what was claimed years and years ago). She is noticeably taller than Savannah. If you see pictures of them together during LeBron's Miami days, it's obvious.

Y'all should do a savannah james page. I'm asking canson and the other guys, where would you put her? You can find 5 7 searching her online and that shounds about right. Since I haven't really took a look at her and she rarely appears in public and she often has heels it isn't easy to tell. 5 7 would be my best bet too, 5-6 to 5-8 seems the range, wouldn't ever guess her outside that range. I've also heard that she was a good volleyabll player in hs.

P.S: ok If you search "savannah james without heels" you can find decent comparisons with 6-7.5 lebron.
also what would you be y'all definitive guesses for lebron's peak morning height?

Interesting. Love the username and Thanks for the support! My guess for a peak Lebron is 6’8 out of bed or maybe a touch over if the 6’7.25 is his afternoon (I have him at 6’7 flat). Savannah is interesting though. I’ll have to research her more

Lebron here with 6'10.25 Chris Bosh, compared to 6'6.25 Melo, and 6'9.25 Dwight Howard.

It's quite obvious Lebron is nowhere near 6'9. He is visible shorter than 6'9.25 Howard, as seen in the commercial video posted many times here. Screenshot Click Here

@Robbe: I’d give him 6’7” flat. Kevin Love is taller and people who’ve met him say he’s 6’7”. He’s prob a hair over the mark
Canson said on 29/Sep/20
That’s also saying Rob the site master doesn’t have any being he lists him 6’7.25”
Robbe said on 29/Sep/20
There are also people who have met Lebron, and said he looked 6'7. Not to mention players who have played with him. Also, if you look at pictures with good angles, he does appear 6'7 range.

Click Here

6'8.5 guy doesn't appear so short next to 6.6.25 / 6'9.5 guys, so 6'7.25 is what he is.
Editor Rob
That last photo doesn't help Lebron's measurement much!

I believe lebron is 6'8 1/2 saw him on the streaming vid today of game 5 of the WCF, he was just on his sleepers, him & AD were standing at the back while pelinka was giving a short speech. And they were almost same in height...

Wow! I didn’t even hear the video until now. He actually said KCP is 6’6,5 or 6’7”? KCP measured 6’4.5” barefoot. Talk about giving away your own lie. He admitted in a nutshell that he’s 6’7”

@Editor Rob: Hmmmm? Markieff Morris was listed at 6’10” now he’s listed near his pre draft of 6’7.75 and rounded to 6’8”. Danny Green is listed 6’6” but measured 6’4.5 (afternoon) in 2008 and 6’5.25 in 2009 (morning). KCP measured 6’4.5” and is listed 6’5”. We already know that Davis measured 6’9.75”. So he’s saying Markieff Morris is taller than him when he’s supposed to be shorter lol. That gives away his own lie about his height
Canson said on 22/Sep/20

Funny how he didn't start claiming 6'9" until his 6'8.5" barefoot "measurement" in 2019. He had always claimed 6'8" before then.
Canson said on 21/Sep/20
Rob just said it here:

Clubs themselves submit figures to the NBA itself, so it's up to the clubs to measure and submit them.

So the players don’t submit it the teams do. And the teams were forced to do it. Do you really think they wanted to?
Editor Rob
And if you are *the* biggest name in the sport, are you going to be undermeasured?

However, it can't be dismissed entirely - it would have been great if the player measurements were recorded on camera and submitted to the NBA that way, for historical records.

Why to post terrible angle picc ( like Kit just did) when there are much better pics available? I have posted this earlier, but it got ignored for some reason. There can't be better pictures, espesially the left one. Both men standing tall, angle is very good. Most likely both men wearing similar shoes. They usually do in the award ceremonys.

Click Here

Picture on the right is also pretty damn good. There is zero chance Lebron is more than an inch taller than Melo. Pictures taken on the court are not so good pictures to judge heights due to bad angles and players are hardly ever standing at similar posture. Team photos, or ceremony photos are much better. In those, LeBron always looks at least 3in shorter than Durant, and barely taller than Melo.

Lebron is more than an inch taller than Carmelo. Seems like Lebron slouches quite often with the exception of when he talks to a player after a game. If you look at those pictures his true height is seen. Honestly think 6'8 with growth after his draft measurement accounting for that difference.

Height said on 2/Sep/20
One of the biggest height frauds in NBA history lol!

There are some others out there with this new metric being implemented this year. Ben Simmons only measured 6’8.25 previously and doesn’t look over 6’8”. See 6’8.75 Al Horford with him. He’s not as tall as Horford. Then Boban Marjonivic was measured 7’2.25” and Porzangis 7’1.25”. Both generously “received” 7’2.75 and 7’3.5 this year lol. I’d bet money that neither of them grew which means Luka Doncic likely isnt as tall as he measured based on how he looks with them or how he looked with Harrison Barnes who is 6’6.5ish barefoot

To bad he’s embarrassing himself today by being political. He’s nothing below 6ft7.5.

He was measured at 6’7.25” and is similar in height with Brandon Ingram who is also listed 6’7” flat this year. As far as the political stuff this isn’t the site for that so I’ll digress. That’s not a true statement about him “embarrassing himself”. That’s your view

That's funny he called Baxter 6-5.

Baxter is a legit 6-6

Canson, that Baxter measurement was afternoon as was Boozer's presumably.

Boozer certainly looked 6-8 minimum when I saw him. He did measure 6-9.25 in shoes.
Canson said on 26/Aug/20
@Viper: this is how a 6’7” range guy looks next to a 6’9.25-.5 range guy. And Durant next to Anthony Davis is more than just .25” smaller. Durant likely got rounded up from 3/8” or wasn’t at a complete low

Rob’s listing is the most he is. Like someone said on Paul George’s page that PG looks taller than Lebron more often than not. Maybe it’s the build but I will go with 6’7.25 for PG and 6’7 Lebron

Lonny Baxter measured 6-6.25 and I always thought Boozer looked to have around 2 inches on him when they had those epic Maryland-Duke games in the early 2000s.

Yeah I can buy 6-7.5

@Viper: I’ve heard Baxter referred to as 6’5” by one of his college teammates. Maybe Chris Wilcox? But my guess is it’s a morning measurement and he’s something like Shawn Marion 6’6.25 but said to be 6’5-6’6 range. I doubt he was less than 6’5.5-6’6”. Boozer was probably about 2” taller

I don't understand the need to inflate player heights. Lebron is 6'7 and a great player. He might clear 6'9 in the morning with shoes on. He is a very tall human being and is probably massive in person.

People like the idea of taller players who can handle the ball and run an offense to the point that they inflate their heights. I keep seeing this type of inflation with Jayson Tatum. He looks about 6'8 range barefoot and there are articles that he is 6'11.

6'4ish Lonzo Ball is 6'7. Magic is 6'9. Ben Simmons is 6'10. Lebron is 6'9. KD is 7'0. I recently heard Bill Simmons and Ryen Russillo both on separate occasions claim that Luka Doncic is 6'8.5.

I guess it just sounds more impressive. KD being a "7 footer" who can shoot and handle the ball is more compelling than if he was 6'9. I don't see the point in this exaggeration. Whether Lebron is 6'7 or 6'9, it doesn't change anything or make his career less impressive. Same for KD, Luka, etc.
Canson said on 20/Aug/20
@Viper: maybe he looked it with footwear or something but here is Tayshaun Prince with Rasheed etc. Prince is 6’8”. But Boozer is shorter than Prince in the Olympic picture. It’s not by much though
