@Canson True as the lowest 6'6.75" for Lebron still happening sometimes same as 6'6 for Carmelo. Meanwhile i'm hoping Rob put up Dwight Howard and Chris Bosh listing here. They are worth an add than many others baller Rob have already listed here. This two players have alot of good comparison photo with Lebron James, Kobe and Dywane Wade in the past.

@Junior: I’m gonna try to go next season when the Lakers come East to play the Washington Wizards. Unfortunately they played three weeks ago before he got hurt and only play in Washington once a year

@Junior: all of those ranges you gave for Melo are very realistic. Assuming we were both at lows I could give 6’6-6’6.25 no less than 6’6” and no higher that 6’6.25. As for a sub 6’6” it would be very difficult to see it. But I also doubt he’s more than 6’6.25 either. Lebron can look 2cm taller and half inch and even a full inch. I could see the full 6’7” but not any higher. I could see 6’6.5 possibly but if he’s under 6’7 it’s probably more like 6’6.75 than 6’6.5
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jan/19
@Canson although my friend say a few times that Lebron was weak 6'7 but from my perception looking at him hes more like a person with loose posture dropping some height can look 6'6-6'6 3/4 but standing well look close to 6'7 to me and could look a solid 2cm taller than Carmelo. Carmelo maybe in the 6'6 1/8 zone than big 6'6 1/4 or flat 6'6.
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Ellis: I think Lebron would be at least 202 out of bed and then dip to probably 200 range at a low. He isn’t that far below 6’7”
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Michael Jordan: agreed. I do believe Beal is 6’3.5 now and that’s likely a low for him or very near it. I have Wade at 6’2.75 and have for a while
MichaelJordan said on 5/Jan/19
Since Dwayne wade is 6’3 that makes Beal 6’3.5 right Canson here’s a video of them exchanging jerseys

Ellis 6'7.25 said on 1/Jan/19
Night height is 6'6.25-6'6.5, Afternoon height is 6'6.75, and Morning height is 6'7.25(Carmelo's morning height is actually 6'6 7/8 and not 6'7). Happy New Year btw, I'm typing this on January 1st.
Canson-6'4 3/8 said on 25/Dec/18
I want to see him in Space Jam against other players to see how they all compare heightwise
Canson said on 17/Dec/18
@Junior: you mentioned once that a friend of yours met him and thought weak 6’7”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Dec/18
To be honest i still think Lebron is 6'7 although some believe the listing was his low and many argue 6'6 3/4.
Canson said on 16/Dec/18
@Jdubbz: that’s not far fetched (although I don’t believe he is either). 199 flat is too low. But if he were something like 6’6.5 I wouldn’t be totally surprised. He’s barely taller than Melo. I think a full 6’7” or 6’6.75 is a worst case however. No disrespect to Tall Greek Boy but he has lowballed several other players such as Kevin Durant. No different than someone upgrading players but when you do either it is a domino effect

Lebron is 199cm flat. Pictures with various celebs prove it.
Canson said on 9/Dec/18
@Jackson: very well said
Jackson said on 8/Dec/18
You could make the argument people were tougher in the 80’s and 90’s era. But I can easily make the argument that nobody had as much fire power as a team with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins. Lebron has had to take on teams like the warriors who are perfectly fitting into this new 3 point driven league. I’d argue Lebron May have had a better time in a tougher league where he could drive the ball more and not have to constantly keep up with opponents who live and die by shooting Three’s.
Canson said on 7/Dec/18
@Jackson: I have him right at 6’7 barefoot maximum. I thought maybe even 6’6.75 is possible. He has times when he looks half inch taller than Carmelo then others 2cm then around 2” on 6’4.75 Kobe Bryant
Canson said on 7/Dec/18
@Jackson: not so sure about that. A lot don’t have them as top five favorite but they may say top 5 of all time perhaps. Even then it depends on what era you grew up in. I grew up in 80s and 90s. I have always had a ton of respect for Lebron and liked him but just felt the era is watered down. He’s a beast though as a player. But could he have done what he’s doing today when the rules weren’t as favorable?
Canson said on 6/Dec/18
@Christian: I think Ray is the best 3 point shooter of all time! I remember the later Seattle teams with Rashard lewis and him (right before KD came and before they became OKC) along with the early 2000s Bucks teams with Big Dog Cassell and Ray!
Jackeon said on 6/Dec/18
Lebron is in most people’s top 5 that I’ve seen. He is the most durable and well conditioned superstar maybe ever. He’s showing no signs of slowing down. It’s truly impressive. If he stays on this pace he will end his career number 1 in scoring all time. He’s about to pass Jordan in scoring. I don’t think he can ever pass Jordan in rings. But if rings are what makes people the greates than Bill Russel is the greatest. Truly a fantastic player and I’ve loved being able to watch him play. He has hardly any weaknesses maybe free throws I suppose. I’ve got him at 6’7.25” barefoot 255 lbs. 6’8.5” in shoes. I’ve worn his Lebron shoes and they have air bubble that can make you a solid inch and half taller.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Dec/18

I also love Barkley and Carter too, along with Ray Allen. Ray's the best 3 point shooter of all time IMO, while I believe Barkley's the best PF especially for his height.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Christian: Lebron may be in my top 10 now at least. Not before tho

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Dec/18

Who's your second favorite player of all time after Jordan? Mine would be a tie between Kobe and Wade. Typically I'm not the biggest fan of 7 footers, although I'm not taking anything away from those guys.
Canson said on 28/Nov/18
@Kobe or Jordan: I believe Beal is 191-192 today. Max he may be 192 and a bit. He’s grown since drafted as his pre draft was 6’3.25 (early morning) meaning he probably was only 6’2 range at that stage. Today, though he looks that in person according to people who’ve met him. One is 6’3” himself and believes Beal may have slightly edged him when he saw him last. Same guy also said Wall is probably a little under 6’2”. Not sure where the 6’2.75 came from but I can Believe Beal’s pre draft is that looks proper for a morning height prior to his growth spurt.

My guesses today:

Beal 6’3.25- 6’3 5/8 (somewhere in the middle probably) afternoon height
Kobeorjordan said on 28/Nov/18
Click Here Yeah Bradley Beal is decently 6’3.5 completely dwarfed Wall he grew for sure
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Christian: Lebron is a once in a generation talent. His size and supreme athleticism make it easier for him but his skill set and high IQ can’t be discounted.
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@maxtreson: That’s prob 4-5cm with Clarkson and Ball. Ball looks around 6’4.5 perhaps and Clarkson 6’2.75 perhaps with a 6’7” ish Lebron James. Beal may be right where you have him. Friend of mine has met Beal and Wall Both and Beal May be slightly taller than him and he’s a solid 6’3” guy (measured him myself). Said Wall could be a bit under 6’2” next to him perhaps (6’1.5-6’2)
Maxtreson said on 26/Nov/18
@Ellis maybe Beal was only an inch taller than wall in 2016 but Injust saw a recent interview of him next to wall talking and he had close to 2 inches on him this is 2017-18 Beal grew for sure and he’s taller than Jordan Clarkson who’s only 2 cm 3 cm shorter than 6’4.5 Lonzo Ball I would say Beal for sure is 192cm 6’3.5 after his growth spurt.
James-186cm said on 24/Nov/18
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Viper: I don’t see an inch unless he has a footwear advantage in some pics like the one below. There’s another of them together where magic has the same shoes on and they look close in height although admittedly Magic may have some camera advantage. Magic could still be 6’7” today but wouldn’t rule out 6’6.75 either next to Kobe

Click Here
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
I have to agree with what Viper said. He doesn’t look over 6’5 on the court with others.
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Jordanmaxson8739: right I’ve also met Melo and it’s possible that he’s a full 6’6” as opposed to 6’6.25. May also be somewhere in the middle. But It’s possible the difference is a full inch as opposed to under it. Or could be that Melo is 6’6.25 and Lebron 6’7 or Lebron 6’6.75 and Melo 6’6. Time spent on feet and footwear could be factors in both situations

@Ellis: I wouldn’t completely close the door on Melo being 6’6.25 but it’s likely he doesn’t fall below 6’6” flat either. He just looked a legit 6’6” to me as opposed to a guy who’s 6’5.5-6’6”. A lot of guys who fall below a mark like 6’4.5-6’5 or even 6’4 1/4-3/8 my size may claim 6’5 if they measured early morning even if they were only 6’4.5 or .75 and they look very disjointed. Look an inch below their claim imho. That’s why I round down to 6’4 as opposed to up to 6’5
Canson said on 20/Nov/18
@Viper: while he’s obviously not as good as Jordan he is the best all around player of all times. The man is a beast. I can’t think of anyone that is really
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Nov/18

Why isn't Lebron "in the same zip code" as Jordan? I'm not the biggest NBA fan, but Lebron's certainly one of the best in his generation.
Canson said on 20/Nov/18
@Yusuf: 6’10” is if he’s grown since. I would really say 6’9.5. Jimmy butler is max 6’5.5 (not 6’6.25). Really Butler looks 6’5” more than 6’6”
Canson said on 19/Nov/18
@Viper: Kuzma looks the same size as Julius Randle was. He was measured 6’7.75 which means likely a strong 6’7” in the afternoon. I can’t see Kuzma as high as 6’8”. He really doesn’t edge Lebron like that. If anything maybe 2cm difference but Lebron honestly can look taller at times too. I don’t think he is I’d say Kuzma is
Jackson said on 19/Nov/18
There’s nothing laughable about what I said @viper....

All around means scoring rebounding assisting.
And Lebrons ability in those 3 categories has consistently been incredible. He had 51 last night in his 16th season... and you could argue he’s more interested in getting teammates involved than scoring. If rings are all that qualifies whose the greatest than I guess Bill Russel is the goat... Lebron will pass Jordan in scoring quite soon this year. When it’s all said and done his resume qualifies him to be in the goat conversation. Many agree with me. No need to call it laughable.
Ellis said on 19/Nov/18
@Yusuf B: In the picture with Yung Gravy, considering Gravy is 6'5.5, I would say KAT is 6'9.75 taking into account there foot wear and the ground level. I would say KAT is 6'10 flat if that helps.
Canson said on 19/Nov/18
@Viper: no I was talking about Lebron when he was in the area
Canson said on 19/Nov/18
@Viper: not sure what you’re referring to with unseld. As for Kuzma 6’7.5 is easily possible. At times Lebron looks taller or just as tall. 6’8 Morning is 6’7.5 afternoon. He doesn’t look 6’8” with Magic tbh. And that’s if Magic is still full 6’7 today
Rick1 said on 19/Nov/18
Good to see Lebron finally added , spot on listing
Editor Rob
He was added to the site in 2006, 12 years ago ;)
tombod said on 19/Nov/18
bradley beal was measured 6 3.25

lebron james with 6.8 measured kuzma

i can see lebron close to 6.8 morning height he has 2 inches on 6 5. 75 measured draymond green
Ellis said on 18/Nov/18
@Canson: You're right, nowadays in the NBA LeBron looks taller because I believe it was @Christian that said listed heights will become even more higher than barefoot heights in the coming years. Many announcers call him 6'9 in the games nowadays, and yeah Melo is a solid 6'6 I would trust you on that considering you met him. I think me and LeBron are the same height actually, my night time height is now 6'6 5/8.
@Jordanmaxson8739: I would trust that Beal is 3 quarters of an inch taller than John Wall, he always looks slightly taller, but he is in that realm that he is not really much taller than wall, could be anywhere from half an inch to an inch in my opinion. My general perception is that John Wall is a little under his listed barefoot height, I think it was 6'2 and 3/4s but his lunchtime height is probably 6'2 and a quarter, so for Beal I would have him at 6'3 flat or 6'3.25.
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
@Jordanmaxson: that may be right today for Beal. He was 6’3.25 (morning) probably 6’2.5-.75 when he was drafted but was said to have grown. I live in Virginia (only 10 minutes from DC) and have heard From people who’ve met Beal that he’s 6’3” range today
Jordanmaxson8739 said on 18/Nov/18
@Rob also rob how tall do you think Bradley Beal is? Can him and John Wall get a page?
Jordanmaxson8739 said on 18/Nov/18
I dunno also because I took my son to the LeBron James camp in Paris and got to meet him and I’m 188.4 cm at night and Lebron looked 5 inches taller than me Canson I believe Lebron is just a flat 6’7 Kobe is 6’4.75 and he’s clearly 2 inches taller than him or a little over I believe the reason why lebron does not look that much taller than Melo is because he’s just a flat 6’7 and I don’t think you can really tell a huge difference between 6’6.25 and just a flat 6’7
viper said on 18/Nov/18
Kuzma looks an inch taller than 6-7 Magic to me there
viper said on 18/Nov/18
Lebron is arguably the best all around player to ever walk the planet.

Uhhh, he's not in the same zip code as Jordan. laughable
viper said on 18/Nov/18
I gotta think Ingram would weigh a hell of a lot more If he was just 6-6.
viper said on 18/Nov/18
Kuzma being under 6-8 would be a surprise, because he makes Lebron look 6-6.5-6-7.

Canson are you talking about Unseld?
Yusuf b said on 18/Nov/18
@Canson: What height would you give Karl Anthony Towns ? Would you say 6’10.5 at most like i say or would you give him a flat 6’10 ?
Jordanmaxson8739 said on 17/Nov/18
How tall do you guys think NBA all star Bradley Beal is he’s listed at 6’5 but looks 6’3.5.
Canson said on 17/Nov/18
Kuzma looks about half inch taller than Magic. A 6’8” pre draft puts him around 6’7.5 at a normal time of the day. Always a chance at a fraction less but not lower than 6’7. Ingram is taller than magic imho

Click Here
Canson said on 17/Nov/18
@Tallgreekboy: Kuzma isn’t under 6’7” probably even 6’7.5ish to be honest. Ingram looks to be at least his height or slightly taller. I’d say he could be 6’8” possibly. Kuzma isn’t shorter than Magic in pictures (perhaps taller). Lebron I could possibly see 199-200 but no less than that. If it’s 199 imho it would be something closer to 200 like 199.5-200 range
Canson said on 17/Nov/18
@Ellis: to be honest Lebron can just look 6’6.75 or 6’6.5. He only edges Melo by around half inch maybe max 2cm. The epidemic is worse because combines are held early morning for all people and sports now. I think Draymond if not solid 6’5, is no higher than 196 probably
Tallgreekboy said on 16/Nov/18
First, Lebron is 199cm and doesn’t look above it on court. Kyle Kuzma is 199cm tops. Ingram is a little bit shorter at about 198-198.5cm. Many of these guys are over listed.
Canson said on 16/Nov/18
@Viper: I was talking to someone once that said he’s 6’10” lol when he met him. Then someone I know saw him at Capital One Arena once and said he looked 6’8-6’9. The only honest sightings I know of are when my former coach told me he looked around 6’7” in person and a friend of mine that is in the business world meets people all the time when he travels said he’s around 6’7” too recently
Canson said on 16/Nov/18
@Viper: Kuzma also measured that in the morning. NBA doesn’t do 1/8” increments. He’s likely just 6’7.25-.5 at his low while Lebron is probably 6’7” give or take (maybe 6’6.75). Unseld admitted to having measured 6’5 3/4. He could’ve even been 6’5 1/2 really or even a bit less but generally looked nearer 6’6 I’d say than 6’5”

How tall was that 7'0" center listed in his profile? I'm guessing 7'1" or 7'2"?
Ellis said on 15/Nov/18
@Canson: I always knew that LeBron was 6'7 flat without the shoes, but for Draymond I was always unsure, he was measured at 6'5.75 w/o shoes, but that to me makes no sense because I saw a picture of LeBron and Draymond in a nightclub and the difference was easily over an inch, so he might actually be much closer to 6'5 flat or just 6'5 flat, he definitely didn't look near 6'6 with a 6'7 LeBron. This epidemic is actually occurring a lot more lately, I mean look at 6'9.75 measured Enes Kanter, if you see him on the court he doesn't look 6'9.75 at all, he is more just a 6'9 guy flat.
viper said on 14/Nov/18
Yeah Unseld was really 6-6 at most. I use to believe he was 6-7 for the longest time.

Makes him more incredible.
viper said on 14/Nov/18
Kyle Kuzma is a measured 6-8 and clearly taller than Lebron on the court.

Give Rob a lot of credit for this listing. Pretty much everyone and their mother thinks he's 6-8-6-9. There is a former division 1 7-0 center I know who was adamant with me that Lebron is 6-8 and that he saw him up close. I said nope, you are wrong. He thinks Im the crazy one.
Canson said on 14/Nov/18
@Ellis: Lebron is actually about 6’7” not 6’8”. I go off their actual heights. Draymond is only about 6’5” and that’s according to Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry. I saw the game the other night when he and Durant got heated and Cousins was in front of him. The difference looks close to what it does with Durant maybe fractionally less. I have cousins as 6’9” and Durant maybe 6’9-6’9.5
Ellis said on 12/Nov/18
@Canson: I agree, anything is really possible in the current NBA with position less basketball, look at guys like Jokic and Antetokounmpo both listed at 7 feet(6'11 is basically 7 foot) and they are usually the main playmakers, and like you said smaller guys play the power forward and center and dominate like Draymond Green, considered a great defender, also LeBron is a 4 now I believe and he is dominating, and at 6'8 I would say he is a bit undersized but nothing huge.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Nov/18

You know what I meant. I only used rat poison as an illustration as to why that even in moderate amounts, it does no good for the body. Of course, I'm not saying that milk is just as bad for the body as rat poison. The Dutch are tallest in the world because they likely consume a lot of animal protein, which I'm not denying that milk and other dairy products are rich in it. Other possible factors are excellent healthcare and standard of living. Btw, Finnish and Swedish people both consume milk at a higher rate than the Dutch, yet they're shorter on average, so it goes to show you that drinking more milk doesn't mean taller height. And it's not just any type of calcium, it's calcium in dairy form that's bad for the bones. While it's true that dairy contains a lot of calcium, calcium is an alkalinic mineral, so when you get calcium from acidic sources like dairy, the calcium becomes neutralized by the acid, so it does no good for the bones, and in fact, it depletes calcium that you already have in your bones. You can read it in more detail here. Click Here Also it's no coincidence why countries that consume more milk per capita tend to have higher rates of osteoporosis and bone fractures, as you can read more about it here. Click Here
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Ellis: that actually isn’t unheard of for a 3. But it’s more ideal for a 2. Or maybe slightly above average. Remember that Caron Butler was a 3 during his career and he was 6’5” as well. That’s probably just a whisker taller than Kobe is. But I look at Draymond Green on the court as a 4 and a 5 at times with durant and klay etc (Iggy as well) and he looks what Steve Kerr says (6’5). Kerr and Gentry both said he’s that as did Carmelo Anthony. Draymond is small. Wes Unseld was very small for a center even in that era. Unseld admitted himself that he was only measured at 6’5.75 not 6’7 1/2 like he was listed. I would say a peak Unseld is a touch taller than Draymond
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Jackson: that’s Ellis’s opinion that he does but I agree with you that he doesn’t. Ellis is entitled to his opinion however. But yes he spends $1M per year just on taking care of his body
Ellis said on 11/Nov/18
@Jackson: But he does....It explains a lot, I'm not trying to have a knock on him or his greatness, and he does work very hard, did you even watch the video before blurting out what you just commented, it is blatantly obvious, hair loss, he randomly goes missing for 2 weeks when the NBA has there first steroid check up in decades, I mean come on man, it's amusing how some people can be so oblivious to what is going on, and think they know the facts.
@Christian 6'5 3/8: Is rat poison healthy for the body, I don't even know where we are going with this, read about the Netherlands and how that country became the tallest in the world based on dairy based diets, that was the main argument. I have no idea where you are going with this, I'm saying this one more time, you bring the argument that excess calcium is bad for the body, because the more milk equals the more calcium, BUT milk in regulation is not bad for the body, and you have never had evidence to support that. I just don't even know how to respond to what you said, comparing milk to rat poison. I think we both know that you know better than that.
@Canson: If he is 6'5 flat like you said, then that would make him 6'6 in shoes, which is a small small forward, and a very undersized power forward. I believe Zion plays both the 3 and 4.
Jackson said on 11/Nov/18
Lebron does not take steroids. Stop. Just stop. Lame reasoning to try and kick the guy for his hard work. He’s worked insanely hard on the court and in the weight room since like 12 years old. He has the best trainers and chefs in the world. You people always can’t belive someone could work so hard and try and shout steroids.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Nov/18

It doesn't take a rocket science to realize that in order to have a healthier body, it's best to not eat rat poison at all, not even in moderate amounts. The same principle can be applied to drinking milk for stronger bones. Dairy-based calcium is bad for the bones, so in order to have healthier stronger bones, it's best to not consume dairy at all. Now I'm not gonna dictate anyone what they should or shouldn't drink, since it's their choice, but I'd challege anyone who regurgitates this "milk for stronger bones" myth. It's unfortunate how there are so many people who believe this lie.
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Ellis: that’s not really undersized for a forward especially in college. For a 3 especially not but for a 4 maybe.
Ellis said on 10/Nov/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8: excess: an amount of something that is more than necessary, permitted, or desirable. Rather, it says that "THE MORE milk men consumed as teenagers, THE MORE bone fractures they experience as adults.", and also "another study found that adolescent girls who consumed THE MOST calcium, mostly in the form of dairy products, were at greater risk for stress fractures than those consuming less calcium."

@jackson: I think Zion is 6'5.25, he had a full year to grow after that was taken, but for a forward he is undersized. LeBron is arguably the second best player to ever play the game, I would give it to him over Kareem but he just barely beats him. Not trying to discount LeBron but he took and probably still does now take steroids, if you don't believe me watch this video: Click Here. It shocked me but it all makes sense, now I'm not saying that if he wasn't on the roids he would suck, but it really is an eye opener.
Canson said on 10/Nov/18
@Jackson: they’re not that much different tho. Lebron is “around” 6’7” himself barefoot. But you’re right they always overhype people just like they say Lebron is 6’9 at times. I guess there is a chance Zion could grow but also a chance that he’s peaked
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Nov/18

Nowhere in the article said anything about "excess". Read it again carefully. Click Here It doesn't say that "the men who consumed too much milk as teenagers, experienced more bone fractures as adults.", or that "another study found that adolescent girls who consumed too much calcium, mostly in the form of dairy products, were at greater risk for stress fractures." Rather, it says that "THE MORE milk men consumed as teenagers, THE MORE bone fractures they experience as adults.", and also "another study found that adolescent girls who consumed THE MOST calcium, mostly in the form of dairy products, were at greater risk for stress fractures than those consuming less calcium." It implies that the more you drink, the worse it is for your bones. Like I said previously, if you want to have stronger bones, you shouldn't drink milk at all, not even in moderation. Consuming calcium in the form of dairy products is actually bad for your bones. I will agree with you though, that milk is dense in protein, which is a vital nutrient for body growth and development.

Here’s article showing Zion measured 6’5” flat barefoot.. yet Duke has him at 6’7” and even is getting 6’8” listings some places. So he’s 6’5” 285lbs... he’s not going to be the next Lebron. There will never be another player Lebrons height and weight with his speed and athleticism. Lebron is arguably the best all around player to ever walk the planet.

Ellis said on 9/Nov/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8: Like I said before, the article that you put on there clearly states that milk in excess amounts will increase chances of bone fractures and that is because of milks high calcium content, if they didn't than why would they use that quote that I put in my previous comment, which clearly proves that this is all about too much calcium. I believe that if you drink milk in moderation it will strengthen your bones, if you drink it to an extremity than a deprivation event would occur. I mean come on, also my original argument was that milk helps you grow more because it provides you part of the essential nutrients you need to reach your maximum potential height. Also milk has a lot of protein which is essential for growing tall.
Jackson said on 9/Nov/18
I’ve seen everyone trying to compare Zion Williamson to Lebron. And say Zion is 6’7 or 6’8.... such nonsense. They’re overhyping and lying about Zion’s height. Zion will end up measuring 6’5” without shoes. He’s no Lebron.
Canson said on 9/Nov/18
@Ellis: I agree with everything you said. I did watch some of Zion in high school and he looked like he’s NBA Material. However, the weight he’s carrying on him may or may not help. My first instinct was that of a potential Charles Barkley with more of a Lebron body. He’s close in height with 6’4 5/8” Barkley.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Nov/18

The fact that drinking milk (in any amounts) increases the susceptibility of fractures and osteoporosis goes to show you that drinking milk doesn't help strengthen the bones at all. You're keep implying that milk is good for the bones in moderation but that's just not the case, unfortunately.
Ellis said on 8/Nov/18
@Canson: Yeah he is 6'5, i didn't watch the game but he is 6'5 maybe 6'5.25, like you said his body type weighs strongly against him, it makes him look much shorter, not that being slender would help much but Barrett is probably taller and he is listed at the same height 6'7. He has got the frame that makes his future in the NBA a mystery, guys that big may actually hurt there performance not help it. He got compared to LeBron, I think it is a complete mystery he can either be really good or be a bust like Anthony Bennett, both outcomes wouldn't surprise me to be honest. Coming out of high school I think LeBron was the best possible weight to be a force and still be fast on his feet, 240 very fast and 6'8 with shoes. Zion might have trouble if all he can do is dunk(I don't know if he has a jump shot I barely know anything about him). If he is 285 pounds, that would make him the second heaviest player in the NBA, bare in mind that the heaviest player in the league is 9 inches taller than him.

@Christian 6'5 3/8:
"Similarly, another study found that adolescent girls who consumed the most calcium, mostly in the form of dairy products, were at greater risk for stress fractures than those consuming less calcium."(Your article). Your argument is beginning to become enigmatic, I don't understand what you are trying to argue, the whole reason why your source argues milk is a bad source is because it has a lot of calcium content(for the matter that we are arguing right now), basically restated by the quote above. The article tries to prove that too much milk is the culprit of bone fractures, and by doing so they insert the quote above to clearly prove that the reason why too much milk causes more bone fractures is because of it's calcium content.It also happens to be the exact same method of reasoning as to why milk is a bad choice and results in bone fractures and that is, too much calcium. Once again if you read my previous comment, I said that milk isn't some magical potion that will protect you from all bone fractures, and I don't know where this osteoporosis came in(never mentioned that).
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
@Ellis: he measured a solid 6’5” but they was near the beginning of his senior year of high school. He may still grow. I’d say 6’5” max compared to Reddish or Barrett. And It won’t surprise me if he’s a weak 6’5”. His body composition could be a factor in how he looks. Although muscular he’s still wide
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Nov/18

That article said nothing about "too much calcium". It said that the more you drink, the weaker your bones become. Milk does no good for the bones even in moderation. To have stronger bones, one shouldn't drink milk at all. It says "the more milk men consumed as teenagers, the more bone fractures they experience as adults." And also "found no evidence that drinking milk can prevent bone fractures or osteoporosis."

I was in New York recently and I was surprised how short everyone was.

I wouldn't say 5-7 average but 5-8 average I could buy. I towered over seemingly everyone at 6-3 in Manhattan.

It was surprising. All those people well, well under 6-0.
viper said on 7/Nov/18
Zion Williamson doesn't look any taller than 6-5 on the court next to others
Ellis said on 7/Nov/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8: I guess I have great genes, what I'm saying is kinda what @Myself is saying milk doesn't magically make you grow but it provides you the essential nutrients that your body needs to grow to your maximum potential height, and yes being a late bloomer allows your body to grow more into your later teen years and 20s without the penalty of growing early, what I'm saying is you already get the bonus of tacking on extra inches not in puberty, however that is not the case for early bloomers because they already had their growth spurt. Actually late bloomers are usually on par with the early bloomers those will be tall. I have been tall my entire life, up until 14 where I literally passed all the very tall kids in school for my grade. As of senior year(last year) I was the second tallest kid in my school of thousands of students, and now just recently I edged out the tallest one, and I'm hopefully still growing.
@viper: I believe Zion is listed at 6'7, but he is probably like 6'5.25 maybe 6'5.5, r.j. barrett is listed at the same height and looks taller
@Christian 6'5 3/8: That article that you sent me is only saying that if people consume too much calcium then they will put themselves at a greater risk for a bone fracture, which is what I warned in my previous comment, and yeah if you get hurt I'm not saying milk will protect you from a bone fracture completely. If you consume to much milk, then like the article says you will be more vulnerable to bone fracture in an accident. If you drink milk in regulation I believe that your bones will become a little more stronger, too much of it and your bones will become weaker staying true to the article. That is my analysis, it doesn't need to be re-digested and have potential to start a new argument, I still stand solemn towards the fact that milk helps you achieve a taller height.
Ellis said on 7/Nov/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8: Not trying to sound aggressive, but do you think I call tell the difference between 5'7 and 5'8-9 at my height? I start to notice someone if they are at least 6'2 maybe 6'1.
Canson said on 7/Nov/18
@Viper: he measured 6’5” in high school too. He may have or may still grow
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Nov/18

Btw, a 5'7" average for New York is pretty hard to believe. When I went there, it felt very similar to LA, where I live, which is around 5'8.5". But I've only been to Manhattan and not other boroughs. Maybe you just live in a short neighborhood or area of NY, I don't know.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Nov/18

Like any food, moderation is okay, but the "milk builds strong bones" thing is a lie, and many people believe in to it, and that's how the milk industry makes money. Check this article out. Click Here

Myself said on 6/Nov/18
I agree more with viper...i think generally a lot of guys that are late bloomers, both in terms of pubery and height, end up being on the higher end of the average, but that's just my impression that could be completely wrong. Physically I grew not too fast but steadily throughout my teens, although my puberty progress was and is quite slow and i don't know if it's genetic or if it's because of the fact that i always was a little overweight and after like 14 yo stopped significant physical activities (until 19)...but nonetheless i reached 192.5-7 cm now at 21, growing 1 cm in the previous year. I hope to grow another half a cm!

About milk though, i don't really know how it really would stimulate growth or make you grow past your potential...i think it's just essential to get all types of nutrients, calcium and vitamine D aswell, either by milk or other dairy products taken at a decent rate.
I almost drank no milk until like 19 years old, but at the same time i used to eat all kinds of foods, aswell as cheese as one of my calcium sources...

It is also said that physical exercise should help, but i'm not too sure about that one aswell, maybe just very moderately. Because for example my 5'8 7/8 friend, usually ate only foods that he liked ignoring healthy ones often, but a the same time he used to play a lot of football, and now being fully grown he is like 1 cm shorter than his dad, while his sister is some centimeters above average for a woman, and taller than the mother.

I think physical activity just makes you go through puberty more quickly, while a complete diet is far more important, but it's just my opinion.
Canson said on 6/Nov/18
@Christian and Ellis: milk with higher protein content will help but of course you need to be active as well
Agent Orange said on 6/Nov/18

Ellis said on 5/Nov/18
@Christians 6'5 3/8: Too much of anything is bad, if you drink to much milk then what you just said might occur, but it you drink it in regulation it promotes bone growth and it promotes a healthy diet. I mean of course if all you consume is milk then it will bring an array of problems as would anything in excess amounts, but if you have a steady amount of milk with healthy foods then it will most definitely help you grow. Also the minerals in meat promote growth, you will find much more success in a meat diet rather than a vegetarian diet. You have to eat healthy meats obviously. I believe the negative effects will begin to show if you drink milk in excess amounts, but if you drink milk in regulation I don't see any problems. It's not like milk is a highly acidic beverage, it's actually much closer to neutral on the pH scale, still slightly acidic, that's probably why you say 'because of it's acidity', if you drink too much milk then anyone will be doing harm to themselves. In other words, if you drink too much milk the acidity levels will keep on adding up until the deprivation starts.
viper said on 5/Nov/18
Christian I had a relative who broke her leg as a teenager because she wasn't drinking enough milk.

Milk weakens?
viper said on 5/Nov/18
I didn't reach my current overall size until I reached age 30. So it all kinda makes sense really. I'm smaller boned with 6.5 inch wrists, but have always had good sized legs and broader than average shoulders.

It still amazes me how I was only 120 at 6-0. I had good looking legs at that size which is amazing.

The common occurrence seems to be If you look old in high school, you have grown to your full height.

Look how old Rock looked at 15 plus how big he was. I bet Rock stopped growing at 14.

Ive looked very young my whole life plus I was really skinny out of high school at 6-0 120. I eventually grew to 6-3 195.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Nov/18

I'm not saying that milk stunts growth, but studies show that drinking milk actually helps weaken the bones and deprives calcium, because of it's acidity. I don't believe that milk affect's a child's growth though.
Ellis said on 5/Nov/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8: I would make an argument against that, the dutch are the tallest in the world because of there mass consumption of dairy, that's the main reason why, and that's how they got to where they are now from being one of the shortest countries just over century ago. I'm over a foot taller than my mom, and very noticeably taller than my father. The nutrients in milk promote bone growth and keeps them strong, my bones are built like the terminator lol. So I believe that drinking milk is not a myth, but I respect your opinion.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Nov/18

I think the drinking milk thing is mostly a myth. I rarely drank milk as a child and a teen because I hated it, yet I grew up to be this tall.


If you take a look at this chart by CDC, girls on average still grow a bit even after 16. It seems to stop completely at around 17-18. When you say 14-15, I think you mean that's the average age where major growth spurts stop. Click Here

@David Baldwin: I disagree. Kobe Bryant and Vince Carter looked taller than JR and seeing Lebron with JR, along with Melo and Smith, JR looks 6’4” range. As far as you being fine with it, that’s your view for him. Mine is different. But yes if he legitimately measured that, he should be around 6’5”. To be fair 6’4 1/2 is around 6’5”

@Yusuf: that may be an exaggeration
Yusuf b said on 4/Nov/18
@Canson: Btw Canson do you see Joel Embiid at 7’1 barefoot evening height or is that over exaggeration ?

@Canson: I live in New York, that's why I say not many people are taller than me, the average height is probably 5'7 tbh.
David Baldwin said on 4/Nov/18
@ Canson calling jr Smith 6’4.5 is messed up unless you want to say it’s a night time measurement. Lillard isn’t 6’1.75 but he is 6’1. Jr looks taller then everybody in the nba that is listed at 6’6 in shoes. He measured 6’5.5 in the morning you can’t knock him an entire inch! I’m fine with knocking him down 3/4ths of an inch but not a full inch

Ellis said on 3/Nov/18
Yusuf b: I'm glad I can help, genetics definitely plays a big role in growth no doubt, but the percentage that it is responsible for determining a persons final height has been up for debate for decades. The general census is around 60 to 80 percent, I would say the percentage is right at 70%. Being tall is a dominant gene, so when most people say the rule of thumb for determining a males height is taking your mother and fathers height(in inches) adding five and then dividing it by 2, I don't believe this. At 14 years, to have the major growth spurt is actually considered a late bloomer, and if you are still growing after 16 that is a good sign(which is your case). Like I said before, consume meat and dairy but not in excess amounts that will be unhealthy. I actually drank a lot of milk because I liked it.
Yusuf b said on 3/Nov/18
@Christian 6’5 3/8”: that’s incorrect by a bit girls reach full adult height by ages 14-15. 15 at max search it up it’s not 16.
Canson said on 2/Nov/18
@Yusuf: I agree with Ellis. Well said! I actually stopped growing around 18-19. If anything during that time it was minimal at best. I was already 6’4” when I graduated high school and possible I was around 193.5ish and gained only another small fraction from there (less than half cm)
Yusuf b said on 2/Nov/18
@Ellis: Cheers mate and tbh idk exactly when my parents stopped growing my mother is small and my father is like 5’11-6’0. All I remember was I had a crazy growth spurt at the age of 14 I was really small about 5’2-5’3 then at 16 and a half I reached 5’8.25 I could actually be 5’8.5 as I’m 174cm. And when I read about foods that can make you grow it always says height is all genetic and that’s all it is apparently .
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Nov/18
It's statistically proven that the average male stops growing completely at the age of 19-20, at least in the US. Click Here I don't get why some say that it's 16. That's about the average for girls.

@Nik: Morgan Jones was saying that to me in a trolling attempt. I’m actually neither of those as I’m married and have a pretty good job overall. I don’t usually go into a lot of detail about my personal life unless it’s relevant to height or a discussion. But you see what Christian posted below as I’ve mentioned all of that before in posts. And You can always tell when people are trolling. This Morgan Jones posted right after as Jake Matthews and as “Someone” on Rob paul’s page. It’s not hard to notice a troll as they will post one time under that username then reappear under a different name attacking the same person for no reason (after no prior interactions). Everything he said to me is probably true about himself as he’s mad at the world or something all because someone he doesn’t know is posting in a way that he doesn’t like on a website that he doesn’t own. Nothing to do with himx That’s called being a spoiled petulant child there
Canson said on 1/Nov/18
@Yusuf: you can tell who the real trolls are like that. They post one snide remark where they try to attack or begin an argument with someone (under a username) and don’t ever post again. These are posters who have never posted a single comment. I guarantee you never see another post from one if not both. And I’ve never seen a post from either to begin with.
Ellis said on 1/Nov/18
@Yusuf b: If you want an opinion on this, if you haven't grown for the entirety of last year, that's bad sign. Personally in my experience, I've had pauses for a couple of months but out of nowhere I would start growing again, but for an entire year, that's a very long time to not grow. At 17, you are still young and you have time to grow, truthfully people stop growing at about 20 fully. You need to find out when you're first growth spurt occurred, at what age were you, that will be a great indicator on how much longer you have to grow. Also, ask your parents when they stopped growing, that will also hint when you would stop. For example, my dad was 5'9 at 14, so was I, he had a normal puberty, I had crazy puberty. In that year I grew from 5'9 to 6'1-2, that is an example of when my puberty really began, the first time I ever had growth like I have never seen before. I just turned 18 now, and hopefully still growing, I'm 6'7 at the moment and I have grown 2 inches in the last year. I hope this helps you. If you want to grow, my tips to you are eat meat(not excessively) but in healthy portions, have plenty of dairy in your diet, and sleep the required amount, 8 hours.
Yusuf b said on 1/Nov/18
@Canson: Can you grow after the age of 16 ? Apparently only like 20% of people grow taller after 16. I’m 5’8.25 and I’m 17, i don’t think I grew in the last year does this mean I”i will 100% stop growing now or is there still a chance any ideas ?
Canson said on 1/Nov/18
@Yusuf B: that Morgan jones person is a troll. He also posted on Rob’s page as “Someone” as well. Wouldn’t surprise me if that is Bigger from the General Heights Section. That’s someone who likely is unhappy with himself and has to come on an Internet forum to “troll” other people. It’s always funny when people make their first comment “ever” on the site and it’s got nothing to do with Height. It’s to attack someone who’s never had a discussion with him before.

@ Morgan jones - There is nothing wrong with being a virgin or living on your own, also there is nothing wrong with being jobless in many cases as long as someone is prepared to try and make as much of a contribution as they can in their lifetime, whether this be in a family, voluntary, or paid capacity. Some people who are jobless need encouraging and need a listening ear so that they feel better about themselves.

Even if I had people change estimates all the time which leads me to something fishy. But I noticed all three posters go with a full name. Very common names
Canson said on 30/Oct/18
@David Baldwin: yes I saw that. You’re right. His measurement still doesn’t add up tho next to Melo or Lebron. He’s def 6’4” range minimum but I don’t have him as a full 6’5” unfortunately. He looks similar in size with a guy like Jamal Crawford (maybe). 6’4.5 is about as high as I could give him

Canson said on 29/Oct/18
@Yusuf: someone could have a shorter or longer neck and have lower or higher shoulder but be the same height. It only indicates different proportions on a person

@David Baldwin: I’ll say JR could be 6’4.5. But he doesn’t look as tall as Kobe imho and Lebron clearly looks more than just 1.5 or 1.75” taller and Melo looks more than just 3/4” taller than him as well. I also remember Quentin Richardson allegedly measuring 6’5.5 and Amare Stoudemire calling him 6’4 right in front of him on a game show. That could mean 6’4 range however. Richardson didn’t challenge him and if you see Richardson with a guy like Joe Johnson that’s more than just 3cm between them. Johnson shows a 6’6.75 pre draft which could also be a morning height. You even saw what Ellis said about Damian Lillard. He obviously isn’t 6’1.75 barefoot. He doesn’t even look above 6’0” next to russell Westbrook Derrick Rose or Steph Curry. Rose and Curry are around the same height 6’1.5 whereas Russ is about what they listed him on his pre draft. Rose looks his but Curry looks a morning height and would also be 6’1.5 imho.

To answer your question below, the site is supposed to be based off afternoon heights which is actually a normal low. It really won’t vary much from an evening height. Mine doesn’t at least unless I am on my feet for a few hours without sitting after I reach my low. But Ellis said it perfectly below. Some of the other celebs outside of athletes are likely closer to an afternoon heights. Even some of the athletes are close to their afternoon heights here. Not all of them are morning measured. An example is Kobe Bryant. I believe that to be his true height or within 1/8” of it probably. But Kobe wasn’t measured at a combine. He skipped his. His wife measured him at that mark. I could believe Carmelo’s as an afternoon height potentially. I definitely wouldn’t put him under 6’6” flat for sure. Max I buy for Lebron is 6’7”. Knowing a couple people who’ve met him they say he’s about 6’7”. But then you saw what ellis posted and that video is with Kyrie Irving. I don’t know if he’s referring to his own height being 6’6.5 or someone else’s though so I can’t use it at face value. But that could be the truth if he measured a hair over 6’7 in the AM. Have to remember the NBA doesn’t do 1/8” increments. So 6’7.03 or 6’7.05 or 6’7 1/8 would be rounded up to 6’7.25 and could just be around 6’6.5 at a low if that were a morning height equivalent. Keith Bogans was another who looks close to his measurement. And he was 6’4.5 in 2002 and 6’4.25 in 03 when measured. He doesn’t look less than about 6’4 either.

@Morgan Jones: first off I don’t know who you are. Secondly, I’m married and have a great job. I don’t even need to entertain the comment any more because you sound stupid and likely are someone who uses multiple usernames. People who have to make comments like this to start something usually are insecure with themselves whether it be their height, or some body parts below, or maybe their existence in life. Whatever it may be this site isn’t the place for it. Why don’t you stop being a coward and show who you really are?

@David baldwin: I don’t put stock into what the pre drafts say someone measured. If you believe his measurement that’s fine. I do not. It also says Dwayne Wade is 6’3.75. He’s clearly not. And if he measured 6’5.5 an hour out of bed he would likely still be 6’5”. My guess for Smith is that he’s 6’4-6’4.5. That’s how he appears without inflating others just to make him 6’5”

@Jake Matthews: I’ve never said Embiid was 6’11”. I’ve always had him at 7’0”. I said his pre draft shows 6’11”. Please go find where I said he is still 6’11”. I have not. And serious question. Are you Morgan Jones? Have you ever measured Embiid to know exactly how tall he is?
David Baldwin said on 29/Oct/18
Simply type in nba combine measurements on google and select 2004-05 and you will see a barefoot height for smith and a sneaker height. @ Canson
Jake Matthews said on 29/Oct/18
@Candon: You said a while back that Embiid is 6’11 you know that is just taking the puss. You’re very wrong and very in denial man have a look at him and Durant search it up he is taller than Durant by at least 3” Embiid is 100% a 7 footer even as a Evening height. He’s 7’1 out of bed and 7’0 evening.

Spencer said on 26/Oct/18
6'7" at most.
Yusuf m said on 26/Oct/18
@Canson:: If you’re same height as someone but your shoulder level is a little bit above does that indicate anything ?
Canson said on 25/Oct/18
@Ellis: some guys with longer torsos would be the ones I would expect to lose 1” plus in a day. It also influences the way people view their height. At 6’6 and change you may appear 6’8” to some if you’re built that way whereas if you had say a 32” inseam, you may come off as looking 6’4/6’5 or a bit shorter especially from a distance
Canson said on 24/Oct/18
@David Baldwin: sorry but it doesn’t say anything about what JR measures in sneakers only his bare feet. As for what they alleged he measured, Melo is 6’6” and he is close to 2” taller than JR not just half inch or 3/4”. And I’ve met Melo in person 2 years ago so don’t say “well he may have grown” because he likely hasn’t. He’s still somewhere around 6’6”.
Canson said on 24/Oct/18
@Christian: I can definitely believe JR being a shoe height 6’5.5. He looks at best a strong 6’4 maybe even just solid
Canson said on 24/Oct/18
@Ellis: actually 6’6.25 would be around your normal height if that’s what you come down to daily. Maybe 6’6 3/8 (199cm) if those aren’t normal measumenrs at 6’6.25
Ellis said on 24/Oct/18
@Canson: That is exactly correct, I have really long legs, I'm probably around the area of 6'6.75 to 6'6.5 for my normal height, since I'm 6'7 after a bit over an hour.
@David Baldwin: Sometimes the measurements can be off, take a look at Damian Lillard, he was 'measured' at 6'1.75 and that is not the case, check out his page.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Oct/18

Could JR be in the same situation like Wade and John Wall?
David Baldwin said on 23/Oct/18
Jr smith measured 6’5.5 barefoot and 6’6.75 in sneakers. He’s not 6’4.
Canson said on 23/Oct/18
@Ellis: I agree with what you said but a lot of that may have to do with how strong the back muscles are and the way a person is built. I’ve got two friends who are slightly taller than you and slightly shorter. One is 6’6 to 6’6 1/8 in the afternoon (He may graze 6’7 out of bed but has said he’s 6’6 7/8 before in the morning). The other is 6’7 flat and is 6’7.75-6’7 7/8 out of bed. The 6’7” guy is well built however and has lots of muscle. Both have longer legs than torsos
Ellis said on 22/Oct/18
@David Baldwin: It depends, for basketball players I think it is closer to the morning, but most of the measurements on the website excluding most basketball players(closer to morning heights is a more likely trend in current NBA players) are probably a representation of there mid day height. Like I said before, LeBron said in a video that he is 6'6.5, that was probably his night height I would presume. I'm 6'7 after a bit over an hour out of bed, I'm 6'6.25 when I go to bed, When I wake up I'm probably around 6'7.5, I would assume LeBron is around 6'7.75 out of bed or a bit over or under the mark, but using myself as an example I shrink over an inch in a day, since me and LeBron have such similar heights I would presume the same goes for him, and 6'6.5 at night makes perfect sense. Hope this helps.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Oct/18

It's a known fact, at least in Celebheights and the "height community", that most people shrink more than a half inch throughout the course of a day.
Canson said on 21/Oct/18
@Ellis: you’re absolutely right about the video that was posted with Kyrie where he said something about 6’6.5. But not sure he was referring to his own height or someone else’s. I thought Kyrie asked how tall someone else was not Lebron but you may be right. The audio isn’t the best

@Junior: that’s gotta be a shoe height for Jr. He looks 6’4 range typically even with Melo

@David Baldwin: I think 2Chainz needs the downgrade to 6’4” flat but Lebron also has camsrea afvantage in the picture. Chainz looked taller than Jordan in some pics and vice versa
David Baldwin said on 19/Oct/18

Slight upgrade for LeBron or a slight downgrade for 2 chains. That’s more then 3 inches in both pictures and 2 chains has the footwear advantage.
David Baldwin said on 19/Oct/18
I hear everybody saying he claimed 6’7 but guess what he also claimed 6’9! He’s obviously not 6’9 but he might be an nba 6’9 in the morning with his sneakers on.
David Baldwin said on 19/Oct/18
@ Christian
Believe me man if anybody knows how it works it’s me! I guarantee he shrinks more then a half of an inch! I shrink more then a half inch and I’m 6’2
David Baldwin said on 19/Oct/18
My question still hasn’t been answered, is this site for morning heights or night? He measured 6’7.25 as an 18 year old in the morning. I’m saying he’s no shorter then that and possibly half an inch taller then that in the morning now a days. I’m sure he dips as low as 6’7 flat at night time. I do believe robs measurement is correct at some point in the day. Is this measurement a morning measurement, mid day measurement or nighttime?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Oct/18
Wonder why nobody noticed JR Smith height didn't look like he is over 6'5 next to Lebron and was measured 6'5 1/2 drafted.
Ellis said on 18/Oct/18
LeBron James is 6'7.25 probably around 1 and half hours after bed. I saw in a video that someone mentioned that he said he was 6'6 and a half, that is probably his night time height. Very tall men tend to shrink a lot in the day, LeBron is probably 6'7.75 when he wakes up, maybe a little taller or shorter and shrinks all the way down to 6'6 and a half at night time.
Canson said on 17/Oct/18
@Christian and Tunman: next to Wilton Speight who supposedly measured 6’5.25 I don’t see anything over 6’3” for Wade. In fact 6’3” may be generous. Now where Speight measured is the question because he’s still in college. Don’t know time of day but to me he looks a genuine 6’5” honestly. Either way, Wade is at least 2” shorter. I’d actually say that Wade is a weak 6’3” next to him
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Oct/18

6'3" is the best case for Wade but I highly doubt he's anymore than that.
Canson said on 16/Oct/18
@Rob and Christian: he claimed 6’7” well into his career. He’s not almost 6’8”

Editor Rob
He's not going to be listed 6ft 8, but I can see how people guess him 6ft 7.5 to 8 range...
Tunman said on 16/Oct/18
You can certainly make a case for Wade being only 6'3 which is very believable.He can look 6'2.5 at times but then I'm not sure he's standing at his best.
Love I think can be 6'7.25 or 6'7.5 tops and yeah he edges Lebron but with a small fraction imo.6'7 is fine for LBJ.
Canson said on 15/Oct/18
@Christian: my gripe is claiming someone “grew” with no evidence. I think David knows they measure in the morning or may know. But Lebron himself has called himself 6’7” several times since he’s been in the league so he’s likely not 6’8”. And a lot of these are years into his career. 6’7.75 he would not be calling himself 6’7 or 6’6”. He did call himself 6’6 before when talking about D Wade’s height and a video was posted of Lebron saying 6’6.5 once but not sure if he was talking about himself. I personally feel he’s nearer 6’7” than 6’6” and this is from people who I know who’ve met him although 6’6.5-.75 isn’t out of the question. There are several players here like Lebron and Steph Curry and Westbrook that everyone wants to have grown “wishfully”. A lot of it is lazy thinking just to keep from downgrading someone else. Truth is Lebron is no more than 6’7” perhaps even 6’6.75 especially if his 6’7.25 (was a real measurement for one) and a morning measurement. But I’ll give you an example of some erroneous measurements. Aaron Hernandez was always measured 6’2” range at all of his pre draft events yet he was listed 6’1 by the NFL his entire career. Also Mike Glennon, who’s from my neck of the woods in the DC area (northern Virginia) supposedly measured 6’7 1/8 at his and he’s listed at 6’6”.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Oct/18

You probably have no idea how NBA measurements work. The vast majority of players have their height measured in the morning. That's why a lot of them are around 1/2" shorter at their bedtime.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 14/Oct/18

So you're saying that Lebron grew?
Editor Rob
There is a possibly from 18-20 of a little bit, though I don't think he looks 6ft 8 barefoot though.
Canson said on 14/Oct/18
In order for Lebron to be 6’7.25 it would mean Melo is also near 6’7”. Melo is 6’6”. They look the same in this pic but others suggest half inch or 3/4” difference tops. That said, Lebron is anywhere the 200cm mark which is a hair under 6’7”

Click Here
Canson said on 14/Oct/18
@Tunman: I agree with most of your post. I think 6’7” is about as high as I would guess for Lebron. You have some posters that continue to “wishfully” say that he grew just because he’s Lebron. Lebron on the other hand also once said he didn’t get measured after surpassing “Michael Jordan’s” 6’6”.

My guesses are:

Wade: 6’2.5-6’3. I don’t buy his measurement as barefoot at all. That looks like a shoe height. Ray Allen is only “about 6’4” maybe 6’3.75 and is at least an inch taller than he is

Melo: 6’6- you are correct as I’ve met him in person). He actually is a legit 6’6” guy. Maybe 6’6 1/8. I totally buy him measuring 6’6.25 at some point late morning or early afternoon as he didn’t look less than 6’6

Lebron: I would say is about 200cm (about 3/4” taller than Melo). He likely would be 6’7.25 in the morning. I also wonder if he was measured because sneakers would not add 3/4” to his height. His measurements are 6’7.25 and 6’8”
Canson said on 14/Oct/18
@David Baldwin: where did I say he was 6’6”? Pay attention to what people write and comprehend (provided you are able to read and comprehend to begin with). And do not put words In my mouth. I clearly said 6’6.75 and you even said that in your first post. By the way Lebron is closer to the camera than 2chainz. But here is Lebron with Kobe who is 6’4.75. That’s about 2”.

Click Here
Canson said on 14/Oct/18
lol David? You just said in your last response that you don’t know what time of the day they were measured. Ok so knowing that they measure early morning and how they fudge numbers I choose not to believe that Love or Lebron grew. That’s even more ridiculous to go and say Lebron is 6’8 out of bed now. So you have no room saying anything I said is ridiculous because I based it on proof. I’ve seen Melo in person and he’s 6’6”. Lebron isn’t a full inch or more taller. It’s about half inch or 2cm. Same way that Lianegelo Ball is listed at 6’4 when he’s said to be 6’2”. Again, You just said yourself that we don’t know when he was measured whether it be early morning or evening. So how would 6’6.75 be impossible if he measured 6’7.25 in the morning?

you sitting here saying that he’s 6’8” out of bed That’s pure speculation with no proof and doesn’t sound intelligent all because you want him to be a certain height. Btw, two people have called Love 6’7” one of which being Dan Majerle below and Love with Noah and Rose is only 6’7” with them. Again, if he measured 6’7.75 at a morning height equivalent then how is he not 6’7.25 later in the day?

LeBron James measures 6’7.25 when he was 18 and we aren’t sure if that was in the morning or not. Today he is nearly 6’8 in the morning and the listed measurement above at night. I think it’s ridiculous that you try to say he is 6’6.75 when he got measured taller than that as a kid. @canson
David Baldwin said on 12/Oct/18
@canson Kevin love measured 6’7.75 barefoot when he was 19 so your wrong again man. Kevin love also wears a size 19 shoe so it’s most likely his shoe is a little thicker then LeBron James shoe. Kevin love measured 6’9.5 in his shoes which is a big difference from his barefoot height. I believe this listing is correct for LeBron if we are talking about a before bedtime measurement.
Tunman said on 12/Oct/18
Click Here:
An excellent pic to judge,in my opinion (I'm taking Anthony as a reference since his 6'6.25"seems very genuine)
Chris Paul could be more 5'11.5"as Anthony and Wade seem to have slightly thinner footwear I see 6.75" and 3.5-3.75"difference.Lebron I think has a solid 7.5"on him
Wade seems more like 6'3-3.25" if Chris Paul is 5'11.5 and a solid 3-3.25"smaller than Anthony so again about a strong 6'3
James is at least 4"taller (3.75"assuming thicker footwear)than Wade and like 0.75"taller than Carmelo Anthony so very likely 6'7 flat.
He was almost 19 when he was measured so it's indeed unlikely he gained height.
6'7.25"is maybe by mid day with a further small fraction to lose.
Canson said on 7/Oct/18
Guys chances of him growing aren’t that great. If he did, it’s very minimal. He may have been measured early morning as well.
Canson said on 7/Oct/18
Lebron doesn’t have 3” on Ball. He’s got about 2.5”. The most I could buy for Lebron is 6’7” flat. I know two people who’ve met him and said he’s max 6’7” in person as well. If you look closely, Kevin Love is said to only be 6’7” himself and he edged Lebron. Chances are Love is 6’7.25 and Lebron May be 6’6 7/8 or 3/4”

He measured 6’7.25 at 18 so he has to be at least that tall but I would bet that he’s half an inch taller than that in the morning if he measured today. LeBron rarely straightens his neck that’s why he looks shorter is certain pictures. Luke Walton is wearing nikes in that picture and the picture says it all

@David Baldwin: it’s supposed to be the equivalent to a normal low for the day. I agree it does matter. Rob who is the site Owner used his low for comparisons. As for Lebron, he mentioned before that he’s 6’6” range and he once said he was never measured after reaching 6’6”. I doubt he grew as he looks the same as he did his rookie year with Carlos Boozer when they played together. I wasn’t trying to offend you with my previous comment but you said that no listings are off by that much when Rob hasn’t even met half the celebs he has on this site
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@David Baldwin: id put money on them being at most the same height and that’s if Lebron is really the full 6’7.25 like he was listed on his pre draft. Lebron is favored in those pics and has a footwear advantage with his sneaks while Luke is not in sneaks. Lebron is not as tall as Kevin Love or Carlos Boozer both of whom are 6’7” range
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Oct/18

Sometimes people can look a bit taller or shorter, depending on the pic. There are some pics where Lebron look as low as 6'6". But it's common sense that since he measured 6'7.25" (and most likely a morning measurement at that), he can't be 6'7.75" or taller.
David Baldwin said on 1/Oct/18
@Canson: all you had to say was that it isn’t a good picture of them. I happen to think that it’s a great picture of the two and they are equal distance from the camera. Make sure you click both of the links I previously posted. It’s clear that LeBron James is taller then 67’75 Luke Walton
David Baldwin said on 1/Oct/18
He measured 67.25 when he was 18. Why isn’t that a good picture of Luke Walton and LeBron James? There is a photo of them where you can see there feet and they are both wearing sneaker! Is this website based on morning heights, afternoon heights or evening heights? It makes a big difference

@Jackson: Kevin Love is 6’7”ish and looks taller than Lebron. Love measured 6’7.75 likely at a morning height and is more like 6’7.25 and has Lebron by half. Lebron only has Melo by about half or 2cm and Melo in person is a legit 6’6”

Kuzma measured 6'8" barefoot in the draft and LeBron is looking no less than 6'7.75" next to him there.
Canson said on 28/Sep/18
@David Baldwin: that’s not a good pic of the two. Luke is taller than Lebron. Look at how Lebron stacks up with Kobe vs how Walton stacks up.

By the way. Kuzma measured early morning so really is 6’7” range. Brandon ingram is the same height as Kuzma or maybe half inch taller. Lebron is also shorter than 6’7.75 (likely 6’7.25 in the afternoon) Kevin Love. Lebron is best case 6’7” if not 6’6.75
Jackson said on 28/Sep/18
I’m convinced he’s grown since being measured at 6’7 1/4” he is taller than 6’7 3/4” Luke Walton. Comparing his height to his new teammates made it extremely clear he is taller than 6’7 1/4”

@Animus: that’s not at all true about shrinking 1/2” before measurements. I’ve proven that with Senior Bowl vs Combine data and also where Blake Griffin was drafted, Rob showed. It also said in the article that the 3 basketball players who went to the combine in 2008 all measured 1/2” taller in 2009 due to morning. They’re all measuring around 6-7 am and waking up at 6 so the most they would be at a low is 3/8-1/2”. From NBA measurements they’re usually 1/2” below from what I’ve seen.

As far as Lebron, he may have been measured later in the day but he honestly does not look a full 6’7”. Melo is 6’6” in person and Caron Butler 6’5” and he doesn’t have 1 or 2” on either. In addition Kevin Love has half inch on him and he looks closer to 6 7 than 6’8”
Animus said on 23/Sep/18

Obama still looks a good 6'1 to me with Elon Musk and Donald Trump among others. I suppose 6'7 flat is possible for LeBron, but I wouldn't go below that. I think most players at the NBA and NFL combine have shrunk roughly ½in before their measurements, so it's prudent to assume an afternoon measurement would be ¼in lower. You'll always have exceptions to such a generalization, but it's roughly right for the bulk of players.
Canson said on 22/Sep/18
@animus: possible President Obama’s 6’0.75. I have Lebron 6’6.75 next to Kevin Love. Love’s 6’7.75 looks a morning height and really 6’7.25 at a low and 1/2” on Lebron

Monkey knees said on 15/Sep/18
6ft 7.25 morning height. None of this "in sneakers" malarkey. I am 5ft 11.5 barefoot. 6ft 1 in my air max. I've never used that as a measurement. James had/has a clear 5 inches on Steph. A tad more, probably. Almost 8 inches on Lillard. 3.5in on Kobe.
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
I agree Junior. But not so sure he even measured. He said before he never was measured after reaching 6’6”. That could be an early morning measurement type but considering I’ve met Melo he looked close to his height he measured worst case he’s a solid 6’6” (of course I may have been on my feet longer). I’ve also met and balled against and Grew up with Keith Bogans who is the same height as I am and Kirk Hinrich who looked 6’2” and change when I met him. It’s possible Lebron laid down but odd that he only got .75 boost for shoes as well. My guess is 6’6.75 max. Most he is is 2cm on Melo maybe just half inch. He could be as low as 6’6.5 if Melo is 6’6” flat
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Sep/18
Lebron measure 201.3cm an early morning then he should be 200cm legitmate at night.

I'd have to see more of Lebron but because he's constantly edged out by 6'7 1/4 Kevin Love, I would guess give or take he's around 6'6 3/4. That's just my guess.

@Yusuf: sports measurements are generally close to out of bed these days. Maybe an hour after waking up so they’re inflated compared to someone getting a measurement at an afternoon physical

I really dont understand what "out of bed", "morning", and "afternoon" height is and what it has to do with anything anyone mind explaining.

Our height varies through the day, we are taller in the morning and shorter in the evening. Some people shrink more than others, but on average it is close to 2cm difference between first thing in the morning and the evening.

@Yusuf: well actually it’s from standing next to him and everyone in our dinner party and other observers who saw us telling me that he’s 1.5-2” taller than me and both of us being in dress shoes. So no it’s not superpowers and I don’t go around upgrading someone just to keep someone else a certain height or to make them taller. And I have a 6’6 friend as well as a 6’7” friend who I spend a lot of time around. I can easily tell you that my 6’7 friend is taller than Melo is just by standing next to both of them. Melo is about the same as the 6’6” friend I have. Not to mention that someone who went to Syracuse with him here also said he’s 6’6 who posted on Lebron’s page coincidentally years back. You can also look at Carmelo with Kobe. But you’re right. Lebron is probably not 6’7.25. He did admit once to never having been measured after he surpassed 6’6” in addition to the fact that Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson are both taller than him. I actually have Lebron 6’6.75. Combines take place in the morning usually. IF you actually use some logic, it isn’t hard to tell that he’s closer to 6’6”. Rob, for one, listed him at the height he is here
Yusuf said on 17/Aug/18
@Canson: Yh speaking of carmelo Do you have superpowers? To see someone in person and automatically know their height as everyone says theres definitely not an inch between james and carmelo and james is listed at 6'7.25. So my accurate guess is that carmelo is a solid 6'6.75. You can argue all you like but if thats the case with everyones carmelo and james height statement he wouldnt be less than 6'6.5

@Yusuf: with Iman Shumpert who is morning measured 6’4.25 (really more like 6’3.75), Smith doesn’t look much taller. Maybe half inch but they can look almost identical at times. My guess is that Smith is somewhere between 193-194 cm barefoot at a low

What you have to remember especially from 2009 onward, these measurements take place early in the morning. Some even were measured at morning heights previously. Harden is not 6’4” at a low. Maybe 6’3.5 perhaps 6’3.25. Look at him with Barkley and that’s at least an inch. Look at Harden with Lebron or Melo and he’s 6’3” range. I’ve met Carmelo and he’s a legit 6’6” in person. As far as Smith that’s roughly 2” between them

@Canson: fair enough harden is listed at 6'4 barefoot but i think JR has an inch over him maybe 6'4.75 or max 6'5 barefoot. Also because he was measured at 6'5.5 barefoot in the 2004 draft do u think its possible he could've shrunk a little?? as 14 years is quite a long time
Canson said on 4/Aug/18
@Yusuf: I’d say solid 6’4” maybe 6’4.25 for Smith barefoot. I’d say that is his barefoot height at a low (in the afternoon)
Canson said on 4/Aug/18
@Yusuf: Smith shows 6’5.5 but shows no shoe height in his bio. My guess is that that is his shoe height as he looks 6’4 range next to Melo or Lebron. Melo is accurate at 6’6” as I’ve stood right next to him in a restaurant. May be as high as his draft listing 6’6.25 and probably 6’7” out of bed or very close

Lebron has close to 3” on JR and Melo is usually 2”

Lebron is atleast 6 foot 9 1/4. He is a large boy.
viper said on 2/Aug/18
I thought Simmons was measured at 6-8
Canson said on 31/Jul/18
I think there’s less than 2” between Lebron and Simmons if Lebron stood up further next to Simmons. Lebron may be around 6’7” at a norm and Simmons 6’8.5-.75 or weak 6’9”.

LeBron once reported to a Miami Heat Training Camp @269 lbs...and Pat Riley said he looked like a NFL Defensive End. Riley told James to get under 260 before the regular season. James played that season @ 257-260...per interview with Pat Riley several years ago.

This is a better approximation of LeBron next to Simmons Click Here I believe Simmons is strong 6'9" barefoot.
Canson said on 29/Jul/18
Some food for thought. Number one don’t inflate Lebron to 6’8” just because you’re a fan of him. He is 6’7” like he was measured max. Number two, Simmons is 6’8” range barefoot with Joel Embiid maybe approaching 6’9 but not 6’11 for sure
Diehard23fan said on 28/Jul/18
Click Here No way Lebron is under 6’8 with Ben Simmons
Diehard23fan said on 28/Jul/18
Hey rob at Lebrons instagram and he really doesn’t look shorter then Ben Simmons who’s supposed to be at least 6’11.
Canson said on 26/Jul/18
@Brad: he isn’t that big I doubt. More 240 range with Cleveland in his second stint. 240 looks bigger on him because he’s at best a solid 6’7” likely a little less to be honest. 6’6.75 perhaps. He doesn’t have a full inch on Carmelo and Melo in person is a legit 6’6 or a hair over it like his combine says (best case).
Bradley said on 25/Jul/18
265 when he hits the court first game with Lakers?
Canson said on 24/Jul/18
@Gonzalo: Melo is not 200cm. He measured 6’6.25 at the pre draft. Keep in mind the pre draft is usually at a Morning height (equivalent to an hour out of bed). However, Melo is likely closer to an afternoon measurement or he grew since he was drafted as he definitely was at minimum 6’6” in person but not over 6’6.25. He was max 2” taller than me and those around us said it was 1.5-2”. I guessed him around 198-199 (198.5 is feasible). Lebron is actually more like 6’6.75ish at a low compared to Melo. Celebheights is based on an afternoon measurement not the morning ones they measure at the combine. Look at Kevin Love who looks around 6’7.25 (6’7.75 combine) and half inch taller than Lebron still

He really measures 202 cm... althoug Carmelo's real height is 200 cm and most times LeBron doesn't seem to be not even a inch taller than him

6’7 flat
Canson said on 2/Jul/18
@Editor Rob: may as well add “Los Angeles Laker” to his “Bio” now being he signed last night!!
Canson said on 29/Jun/18
@Junior: there’s several guys here who’ve claimed to meet him. One guy below claims that he’s 6’6” in person, Caesar. Then KROC said he looked close to his barefoot pre draft in person or 6’7. Then some who said he’s 6’8” (I don’t necesarrily believe that as Lebron is shorter than Carlos Boozer and Kevin Love). He doesn’t look as tall as Jeff Green either at times. Green is 6’7.75 pre draft but not sure if that’s morning height as it likely could be. I’d say even if later in the day maybe 6’7.5 max as it looks near 2” difference with Durant. Also for reference, here is Green with Wade. Wade doesn’t look over a flat 6’3” with he or Love. 6’3” is generous to be honest

@bigfatguysowhat So you're 6'6 barefoot and met Lebron.
Canson said on 22/Jun/18
@Height: agreed he’s slightly taller than Melo who’s 6’6” maybe 6’6.25 max
