How tall do you guys think Bronny is?
Canson said on 28/Mar/20
@Viper: you’re right about some senior bowl measurements being higher than combine measurements. Then some like Justin Herbert where he is taller at the combine then you have Jalen Hurts or Tua Tagovailoa who are identical. The Senior Bowl was definitely a morning measurement as it has been several years now

Chris Boucher measured 6-8 a couple of years ago.

Now he's 6-11?

6'7, not very tall than 6'6.25 Carmelo anthony

@Christian: I still wonder how Lebron only got Flat 6’8” in his? I wonder if they just gave him his 6’8” and didn’t bother to measure in shoes or if he was not measured at all at the pre draft. Maybe the 6’8.5 that he’s listed today is what he really would’ve been in shoes at that time of the day given a 6’7.25 measurement? Although I really think they did that just to give him his 6’9” listing without going overboard. I notice that most of the Super superstars such as Simmons, Westbrook, Harden, Antetekoumpo, Kawhi Leonard, Steph Curry and a few others all remained the same height when the only one or maybe two that would get close enough in the morning are Giannis and Westbrook if they got 6’10.5-.75 and 6’2.5” or Embiid. Then I noticed most guys only lost one inch when some of those guys are measuring out around 1/4” over the mark and should’ve been rounded down 1/4” and not up 3/4”. Look at Jordan Clarkson DeAngelo Russell Demar Derozan etc. then other guys grew such as Durant and Lebron. Then you have guys like Zach Levine, Jae Crowder or Justice Winslow or the kings who didn’t change or Jimmy Butler who lost just 1”. Anthony Davis Is at that level of superstar and so was Paul George Last season at least but Davis has said before he wanted to be 6’10” and not 6’11” so maybe that was his choice and George probably dropped to 6’8” since he doesn’t need the size. The only player that is close to that caliber that lost more than 1” was Bradley Beal

Not sure Christian

@OriginalAnon
It's defintiey either a typo or a data error then. Even the listing of the guy who measured 6'3" barefoot and 6'3.5" with shoe, is mostly likely is, because no modern basketball shoe give only 1/2", unless if it was a pair of canvas shoes like Converse, but even those add 5/8", not 1/2".
OriginalAnon said on 10/Mar/20
Christian, look closer. It says that the guy was 6'6'' with no shoes and 6'2.5" with shoes. LOL

@Viper: speaking of him, where do you think he will go in the draft?

Christian, I almost want to say that's a typo

Vernon Carey measured 6-9.5 in shoes in August 2018. Click Here

So it may put those other measurements into doubt

Cassius Winston measured 6-0 in shoes at last year's Nike Skills Academy.

Previous Skills Academy he measured 6-2 in shoes. Click Here

They never measure barefoot at Nike Skills Academy. Always in shoes
Canson said on 5/Mar/20
@Christian: there was one player several years back who measured 6’5.25” Barefoot at the combine and 6’8.5” in sneaks. Talk about a wide variance or possibly even a discrepancy.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Mar/20
It baffles my mind how there can be a difference that drastic between measured barefoot and shoe heights in sports. At the 2019 NBA G League combine, one player measured 6'3" barefoot but only 6'3.5" in shoes, while another measured 6'2.5" barefoot but 6'6" in shoes. What in the heck was that guy wearing at the combine, women's high heels? Lol Click Here

Canson, what's up with a player measuring a 8-9 standing reach, then in another measurement a 9-0 standing reach at the same height.

This video. He doesn't say he's currently 6-8.

Though I wouldn't be 100 percent confident he's a real 6-9 with how bad they messed up isaiah briscoe's measurements.
Shane said on 24/Feb/20
@goma76 Hayward dips down to about 6'6". He measured 6'6 3/4" at his combine which was likely early morning. So Lebron at 6'7" at that time and them likely a footwear advantage as I detailed below and he would likely look comfortably over an inch taller than Gordon.
Canson said on 24/Feb/20
@Goma76: Lebron measured taller than Hayward 6’7.25 vs 6’6.75. Not to mention Hayward’s was a morning measurement whereas Lebron’s from 2003 looks closeR to where he would measure at an afternoon height as he looks 6’7” usually
goma76 said on 23/Feb/20
Seeing him vs Gordon Hayward (listed at 6’7”) and he is taller. I don’t know if it is matter of shoes or orthopedic insole
Canson said on 23/Feb/20
@Viper: which video is being referred to where Carey claimed 6’8”?

Funny how they list Moses Brown at 7-2 when he measured 7-1

"Vernon Carey who is listed 6'10 but is admittedly 6'8 which he said in this video"

Vernon measured 6-9 3 times

Shane said on 21/Feb/20
@Duhon you are dead wrong on this one my friend. Several Lebron shoes give right at 1.5 inches and that is without an orthotic and many basketball players use a good, thick orthotic which is absolutely wise. Got to protect the feet, which is the foundation for a basketball player. And lebron is known as taking care of his body at extreme lengths and more than perhaps anyone in sports outside of perhaps someone like Tom Brady. I would bet good money he not only wears an orthotic but the absolute top of the line you can get and those are thick. So we know Lebron plays in his own shoes and we know that alone puts him 1.3 minimum to 1.5 depending on the model and the new ones are all taller. And u add an orthotic and that's at least .2 to .25 more. So kuzma talk of lebron shoes adding lots of height is no doubt dead on. Hes stood by him barefoot hundreds of times in locker room so he knows hes getting a ton from them. No hes not 7 foot in them obviously but he no doubt is somewhere close to 2 inches and I've known other players who get 1.5 to around two. Lebron nike shoes are made extra strong with great ankle support so hes hjust fine with that boosted height.

@Robbe: they measured Lebron in shoes most likely. I doubt he loses 1.25” or 1.5” in a day. In fact it’s very possible he’s only losing an inch or slightly less as my 6’7” friend is 6’7 afternoon height 6’7 7/8 out of bed Maximum

@Robbe: Paschall was only measured 6’6 at the Pre Draft. I doubt he went down from 6’9 to 6’6” after being measured in the pre season. That’s from college to Pro he did
Canson said on 7/Feb/20
@Robbe: funny thing is Paschall is prob 6’5.5 best case
Robbe said on 6/Feb/20
Here is some more interesting facts about latest measurements:

-Of total 511 players, 304 went down.
-23 players went up.
-185 players kept their heights.
- Biggest looser, Eric Paschall, went down from 6'9 to 6'6.
- Before, there were 43 billed seven footers, or taller, and after measurement, only 33, so 10 went down there.
- Jamier Nelson was 6ft with shoes on, and 5'9.75 without shoes, so he wore shoes with 2.25in heels.

-Team Cleveland Cavaliers EVERY player went down.
- Team New York Knicks every player went down, exept Taj Gibson.
-Sacramento was the only team which kept their total height. Kyle Guy went down an inch, but Harry Giles went up an inch.
- Non of the teams increased their total height.
- For the first time in 40 years, average height in NBA went down from 201cm to 199cm.

I dont know how they measured LeBron, but that's the figure he got. He certainly doesn't look that tall. Maybe he was measured straight out of bed, or he was slightly tiptoeing. Dunno.
Canson said on 5/Feb/20
@Robbe: Lebron was not measured “barefoot” this year. And his supposed measurement is not 6’9” it was 6’8.5”. You see him with Davis or Durant it’s clear he’s only 6’7”
Robbe said on 5/Feb/20
@Big Rob, they didn't mention any names, but 7 players were using shoes with 7cm heels. Counting all NBA players, average heel size was 3.3cm.

Podcast hosts also wondered who the heck plays with 7cm heels lol :D
Robbe said on 5/Feb/20
I just listeded a 2h podcast about NBA players latest barefoot measurements. It was very interesting, ie there were 13 players supposed to be 7ft 1in, but after measurement, only one kept his status, Rudy Gobert. Two guys were only 6'11, rest were 7ft.

They also measured players shoes, lowest heels were 0.5in, thickest 3in!

Lebron was measured 206cm barefoot. So that should be his current height.
Editor Rob
Which player was wearing women's heels, 3 inches? 😂
ASG said on 4/Feb/20
Rob, could you do a page for Bronny James. He is now listed at 6’4, but I think he’s 6’1.5 tops. Definitely will grow a lot in the future though.
Canson said on 26/Jan/20
@Monkey Knees: I would guess a solid 6’7” for his afternoon height. But I question Ben Simmons’s listing. He’s clearly taller than Lebron but at the same time it’s not 2.5”. I would peg Simmons maybe an inch lower than the 6’9.5” he received.
viper said on 23/Jan/20
It's obvious he's taller than just 6-9.
Monkey knees said on 23/Jan/20
Lebron still listed at 6ft 9in by the NBA after they, apparently, sorted their lofted height measurements out 😂 just over 6ft 7in is bang on.
Canson said on 20/Jan/20
@Viper: I’ve seen some guys in college get 3” so it wouldn’t be a total surprise. The more I see with Penny, the more 6’10 range looks ok
viper said on 16/Jan/20
Wiseman is clearly taller in that video.

He looks 1.5 inches taller at the 58 second mark.

Shortest he could be is 6-10.5

He measured a flat 6-11 at his pro day.

Don't know If it was a 6 AM type measurement or not.
viper said on 16/Jan/20
They arnt going to list a 6-9 guy at 7-1 in college. I doubt that's ever been done at the high school level.

Shortest Wiseman could be is 6-10.5, since he measured 6-11

after coming out with the 6ft 9 260 he jokingly backed down to 6ft 7 240...it would have been interesting if there was ever the video that accompanied it, because to see how the context, to tell if he was joking, which would make sense.
Big Troy said on 14/Jan/20
In this video Click Here from 0:57 to 0:59 and from 1:31 to 1:32, you can even see here that wiseman wasn't taller than jaren Jackson. The most wiseman can be is the same height as jaren Jackson but not taller. This picture Click Here is also a good show.
Maybe it's the hair but he's not bigger than jaren Jackson! Just because he was listed 7'1, doesn't mean he's anywhere near that. They are still both really big guys!

7-1 in shoes

I never saw the other 6ft 7-240 claim, but the optometry article is completely made up.

No Canson, James wiseman is not taller than jaren Jackson jr. Who measured 6'11.25 in shoes but at the NBA combine he measured 6'9.75 without shoes. James is also NOT 5 inches taller than Penny Hardaway. James is more like 6'9. He is maybe an inch taller than Vernon Carey who is listed 6'10 but is admittedly 6'8 which he said in this video Click Here Vernon even said that his dad is like 6'4 though he was listed 6'5. He's very honest! I've seen wiseman and jaren Jackson in person too.

Wow. I didn’t know he was 6’9! For Jackson Jr, he’s probably just 6’9” afternoon height maybe close to 6’9.5 if he measured 6’9.75 at the combine. But looking at him next to Penny who is around 6’6”, he doesn’t look 6’11 you’re right
Canson said on 11/Jan/20
@Rob: you should add his claims. He claimed 6’8” 250+ with Magic Johnson

Click Here

6’9 260

Click Here

Later he backed off that and said he’s really 6’7” 240

Then he said

“Given my 6’7 stature”

Click Here

So he’s claimed 6’7 twice, 6’8 once and 6’9 once
Editor Rob
The optometry article was satire. I'll insert the 6ft 8 claim though as I forgot to the last time.
Canson said on 11/Jan/20
@Shane: you’re absolutely right. I saw Jokic on the court in games this year and he is shorter than Embiid. My guess is that the 6’11.75 for Embiid May be an afternoon measurement whereas Jokic may be closer to 6’10” afternoon. I also believe Anthony Davis’s measurement of 6’9.75 to be an afternoon measurement. That was exactly how Jimmy Kimmel measured him (6’11 in basketball shoes). Davis looks taller than Dwight Howard imho. I believe he’s only about 6’9”

And that video of Chol is a whole year before that measurement.

So he might be just 6-10 there. That is insane. I can see how you could be labeled 7-1 with his frame there.

7-3 is extreme though
viper said on 10/Jan/20
Makes sense because I'm thinking, no way this dude has peaked in height in 8th grade, yet he's only listed as 7-2 in college right now, lol.

He's gotta be 7-0-7-1 now.
viper said on 10/Jan/20
Well this surprises me.

Chol Marial was advertised as a 7-3 player in 2015.

In 2016 he only measured 6-11.

@Que Lo Que: Lebron has only claimed 6’9” once. He also claimed 6’7” a couple times which is his true height. He’s claimed 6’8” which is in shoes
Que lo Que said on 5/Jan/20
Identical to kevin Love and 6'7.25 is to short to pull off a 6'9 claim
Canson said on 3/Jan/20
I bet even Adam Silver who has met Lebron doesn’t believe that he “grew”. But it does say that it makes his style of play that much more impressive. Had he stayed it 6’8” Which is what he should be listed given a 6’7.5 or .75 morning measurement, it wouldn’t have mattered. Even Rob compared the two and that’s not how a 6’8.5” guy looks next to a 6’9.75” or even a 6’10 guy with how Anthony Davis is listed here. His listing here looks much more believeable and it’s possible it’s not even an afternoon measurement for him. 6’7” flat Or a hair under 6’7” is very much possible for him

Canson said on 3/Jan/20
Generally looks the full 6’7”
Basketball fan said on 2/Jan/20
He looks 6’9” with Kevin Durant (6’10”) sometimes and Enes Kanter (6’10.75”)

But then he looks 6’7” with Durant in some pictures

Maybe he’s wearing lifts, but his 6’9” listing is stretching the truth
Shane hill said on 29/Dec/19
Who would be the taller out of Tyson fury or Lebron james
Shane hill said on 29/Dec/19
I don’t know why at times during the games, bron looks the same height as Davis and Howard but then the difference is more significant at other times
Canson said on 22/Dec/19
@Shane and Duhon: provided his combine measurement actually occurred, he didn’t use an orthotic at the combine. He only got 3/4” for shoes. I say provided because of his mention that he was not measured after surpassing Jordan’s 6’6” but then again I’ve seen him claim 6’7” twice so he has to be somewhere near it. I could buy something like his listing here being his midday or maybe 6’7 1/8”. Afternoon height would be right around the 6’7” mark in my opinion. The 6’8.5 is absurd. He should be listed the same as Kevin Love. Possibly a shoe measurement or it’s him being measured early morning around 6’8” and rounded up. Someone that size can lose the full inch and if that’s the case maybe his combine listing was in the afternoon
Duhon said on 21/Dec/19
@Shane thick orthotics let alone those measuring close to 2" would be very risky to wear in a shoe while you are running up and down the court that's just asking for an ankle injury. No way his shoes have anything like that in them.
Shane said on 20/Dec/19
@Viper some Lebron shoes are very tall AND considering how well Lebron takes care of his body, I'd say he was a very thick orthotic so he may gain close to 2 inches.

@Canson James likely is gaining more from his shoes than Melo is there. Lebron new model shoes are very tall.
I'd say he is gaining 1.75 inch range with a thick orthotic and considering how well he takes care of himself (as I mentioned above), I think he is very likely to use a very beefy one.
Canson said on 16/Dec/19
@Joe: I used to think the same. But now 6’7”. But the nerve of the NBA to list him 6’8.5”. And it says the new height rules “benefited him”. I don’t see how with all that he has done why his height benefits him being “listed” taller

I thought 6'6.75 was possible but I looked a little closer and it looked like 6'7 at worst.
Big Troy said on 12/Dec/19
@Viper: The 7 ft statement by Kyle Kuzma was clearly a joke. He was implying that LeBron's shoes elevated him more than an average shoe. They wouldn't actually make him 7ft. He was exaggerating. Just responding because it seems you need help figuring that out.
Canson said on 12/Dec/19
@Viper: he only measured 6’6 at the combine and this year in measurements both early morning. Chances are he’s 6’5” range like 6’5.25 maybe best case 6’5.5”. I’d give him the nod over Draymond
Canson said on 10/Dec/19
@Joe: Melo isn’t standing as straight but I think generally it’s 3/4 or 1” between them tops. He could be what Rob lists him or could be 6’7 flat

Big Troy said on 26/Nov/19
Check this video out guys Click Here . At 4:43 Kyle kuzma talks about how LeBron shoes makes him 7 ft because of the high rise. That's probably why people say LeBron looks a lot taller than he actually is because his shoes elevate him so much. In reality bron is not over 6 ft 7. Probably between 6ft6 and 6ft7. In the picture I posted before with him and Carmelo Click Here zoom in on their heads, he appears to be taller because he has a higher eye level and his head band is covering the top of his head so you can't see it much, but in reality, he is more 200 cm maybe between the 199.15 and 200.15 range. I would say 199.7 regularly. He is taller than melo but 2 cm max. LeBron does have a longer upper body so he would probably lose more height, due to spine compression and tiredness, than someone like melo who has longer legs. LeBron also has a flatter head while melo's is a little pointed at the back. They are probably really only 1 cm apart after LeBron's spine has been compressed after a game, long workout or day. LeBron's eye level combined with his signature shoes probably has people thinking he is taller than he actually is. Click Here here LeBron looks a lot taller but it's just his elevating shoes combined with his eye level: Click Here

This looks like a big difference but LeBron is just closer to the camera + the angle is favoring him: Click Here
A better look though he's still closer to the camera so he looks a little taller: Click Here
Here are his shoes: Click Here
LeBron is more of a 2 meter guy if anything. If someone were to say 199 cm they also probably aren't wrong either because he falls between those two. Him and melo are practically the same height they are definitely not an inch apart.

He could be 6-4.5 exactly

@Viper: wasn’t Kenyon Martin? He was listed 6’9 or 6’10” late in his college career. He was supposedly measured 6’8.75 but in the pros listed 6’9”. My guess is it was a morning height or a height maybe a couple hours out of bed. He doesn’t look 6’9” to me. 6’8” range
viper said on 22/Nov/19
Extremely rare for a college player to be his listed height.

Tim Duncan was listed 6-10 In college.

Joe Smith was listed 6-9 his freshmen year
Shane said on 20/Nov/19
@Canson they obviously didn't measure Melo aince rosters were already in or they did and lied because he is nowhere near 6'7 1/2" barefoot at any time of the day. I think since season already started they just sent his old info in. I thought they might just drop him to 6'7" but they obviously didn't.
Canson said on 19/Nov/19
@Viper: very few will. If they do it’s not usually accurate but Kevin Durant did. And Grant Hill was listed 6’8” in college although I think he’s only 6’7 barefoot. Didn’t you meet him? And look at Lebron and Melo. Even morning 6’8 and 6’7 yet they’re 6’9 (6’8.5) and 6’8 now even barefoot or 6’7.5.

I always thought Reddick measuring his listed college height was strange since everyone else didnt
Canson said on 14/Nov/19
@Shane: the one thing I will say is that you have a few guys here that swear by pre draft listings. JJ Redick has 6’4” on his pre draft yet he’s now listed at 6’3”. So that shows how valid they are
Canson said on 14/Nov/19
@Shane: they listed him 6’10 at one point. So you may be right.

Shane said on 12/Nov/19
@Viper I believe so. Maybe 6'10 1/2" by this sites standards (at most imo). @Canson I will have to look some more. He looks shorter to me, tho. They used to list him at 6'11" but went to 7'0" last year which to me looked absolutely like a shoe height.

@Shane: that’s shocking to me. Embiid is probably just a regular 6’11 or strong 6’11 afternoon height. I would’ve expected Jokic to be similar to him. On tv I really thought he was a 6’10/6’11 guy near the other players. In pics they look similar
Shane Gray said on 9/Nov/19
@Canson Nuggets still have Jokic at 7'0". Lol. Watched them play Sixers and 6'11 3/4" Embid towers him. They arent even close to the same height.
Canson said on 7/Nov/19
@Big Troy: ge actually does in some pictures. Some it’s half inch. I’ve seen enough to say it’s likely 2cm or so at least. Lebron if not 6’7 afternoon height is very close to it
Big Troy said on 5/Nov/19
Odd. LeBron doesn't look an inch taller than Carmelo.

@Junior: 6’7” is how he always looks. Not only that but he’s admitted to that twice now and Cam Newton also said that he’s 6’7” so he’s not 6’8” or 6’9 at least not at a low

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 1/Nov/19
@Wingspanpro Click Here this picture is tilt down from Kyrie Irving side which gave Lebron advantage over next to 6'9 1/2 KD. Lebron is nothing over 6'7 a low let alone 6'8 if he was measur 6'7 1/4 at his combine early morning and KD is probably 6'9 1/4 absolute low not 6'10 as you think.
Canson said on 1/Nov/19
@Shane: the link I posted is to show that 6’7” has come out of Lebron’s mouth more than once. He also said he was 6’7 240 before after saying 6’9 260. But the other stuff below is what I was referring to. As for Keis, I don’t believe anything he says as none of it adds up.
Canson said on 1/Nov/19
@Wingspanpro: Lebron is 2-3” shorter thank anthony Davis no matter how you do the pic. He’s also at least half inch shorter than Carlos boozer. Melo also is max 1” shorter and could be less. I’ve met Melo in person and he’s a legit 6’6 to strong 6’6 guy afternoon height. He really looked 6’6 in person not 6’7 or 6’8”. That’s how he looks with Kobe too
Canson said on 1/Nov/19
@Shane: it’s hard to take Keis seriously. You can’t take him seriously when he says stuff like this

Kei said on 5/Apr/17
Just because Cam said Lebron was 6'7 does not mean he is 6'7. I get 7 fett 6'9 and 6'7 all the time when people see me in person. An inch may have been hard for Cam to differentiate. Cam has to look up at Lebron and Cam is 6'5 himself. Also Boozer is 6'8 barefeet and Lebron is about the same.

Keis said on 26/Sep/17
@Canson I'm 6'8 barefoot and more than 6'9 in shoes I can upload paperwork proving it. And I didn't make up anything Embidd is announced as 7'2 if you ever go to 76ers games.Embidd is on no way 7 fee, I don't play but I go to lots if games because I am a huge NBA fan. And lol at pre draft measurements I was 6'7 in shoes at 18.5 now I'm 6'8 barefoot. Jordan I've actually met face to face, and even my cousin commented that he looked at least 6'10 or more and made me look small. Stop judging guys you have never met, I don't know why are you trying to downgrade these guys heights. 6'8 is not very tall to me some people are 7'8 and even taller.

@Canson again DeAndre is 6'10 and he is in no way taller than KD. And no KD is not 6'9 I'm 6'8 and went to multiple games last year, KD has no less than 2 inches on me. I was measured as a barefoot 6'8 on a table by doctors, and this is without me sleeping the previous night.
Shane Gray said on 31/Oct/19
@Keis have u stood right next to James? Seems as if you are saying you have. Also keep in mind his shoes plus orthotics add close to 2 inches. If u stood by him in a short shoe he could seem your height but be an inch and a half shorter.
Shane Gray said on 31/Oct/19
@Keis he is under 7 foot that's what they measured him at barefoot! We aren't talking shoe heights here. And lebron compared to others who have been measured at 6'7" to 6'9" proves he is nowhere near 6'8 1/2" barefoot.
Wingspanpro said on 31/Oct/19
I think Lebron is often not exactly straight, especially with "big" men on the media day with (AD, Bosh, Dwight, K-Love).
For example His back is not strainght.

Embid was listed and announced as 7'2 if ypu meet him hes not under 7. LeBron doesno seem shorter than me..
Shane Gray said on 29/Oct/19
@Canson yes some are accurate or at least accurate enough to be at the half inch mark in morning or when measured and rounded up. Some obviously arent, including Lebron, Chris Paul etc.
Canson said on 29/Oct/19
@Keis: you were the one who also said that Embiid was 7’2” when he’s 6’11.75”. You think everyone is taller than they are. Cam Newton said in person Lebron is 6’7” as did someone I know that met him. Lebron is shorter than Kuzma and Love yet listed taller now
Keis said on 28/Oct/19
I dont see how you guys dont think Lebron is 6'8.5 im 6'8.5 and he seems my height to me. Im only 185 ish so Im much thinner than him but I doubt hes shorter than me. Draymond also re did his measurement without shoes hes 6'6.
Canson said on 28/Oct/19
@Shane and Jackson: I’m sure some of the heights are accurate at the time that they measured them (in the morning). But I’m willing to bet that by the standards here on this site that very few would align with the way Rob defines a low. I’m sure maybe a couple measures say 6’3.25 and dip to 6’2.75 or 7/8 but that’s about as close as it gets. Even a legit 6’3” afternoon guy would probably get a 6’4” listing with this new system being they would get 6’3 3/8 or 1/2” an hour after waking and be rounded up.

@Spencer: if you have Draymond at 6’6 Lebron would be about 6’8”. The reality is in their listings here on the site as that’s about how they vary 2” difference roughly. My guess Draymond low case 6’5” flat best case 6’5 1/8 maybe Lebron may be around what you said if Draymond falls to 6’5” flat but Lebron may be 6’7” flat as well. If morning measurements they would be listed 6’6 and 6’8” (rounded up). I don’t know how in the world Lebron got 6’8.5 because he’s not anywhere near. He’s not taller than Love who measured 6’7.75 early morning and is listed 6’8 while he’s listed 6’9”
Shane Gray said on 27/Oct/19
@Jackson exactly
Jackson said on 27/Oct/19
@Shane

Your absolutely correct. The NBA made the rule and the teams did the measuring. I guarantee the team was more than happy to help some guys out with their height and not force them to be 100% accurate. It’s why the new measuring systems are just dumb and not accurate. I’d say some guys got accurate new heights but..... others did not at all
Canson said on 26/Oct/19
@Mickie: agreed
Shane Gray said on 25/Oct/19
@Myself you're missing it. It's not that people dont know how to measure. This is the issue:

The NBA DID NOT measure the players nor did they attend the measurements. There was no oversight.

The NBA forced this policy in the teams and the teams and players did not want it. But then the nba let the teams self report the in sock measurements. And thus, they are unreliable for that reason.
Johnson said on 25/Oct/19
What do you guys think about Jeff Teague??

At 21 he was measured 6'0.25 without shoes
Today he is listed 6'3... But although he was 6'2 that is a big growth!!
Editor Rob
With Terrence Howard, a bit nearer the camera there...I don't know about 6ft 3!
Canson said on 25/Oct/19
@Shane: Thaddeus Young is another one. Still listed 6’8”. He measured 6’5.75” when drafted
Josue said on 25/Oct/19
I've noticed on this site some players like LeBron keeps his listed morning height while a player like Draymond Green who measured morning 6'5.75" gets downgraded to 6'5.25" afternoon height. Why is that Rob?
Editor Rob
Well they are saying lebron 'measured' 6ft 8.5, which I find hard to believe, but I can believe he measured 6ft 7.5-7.75 earlier in the day.
Canson said on 24/Oct/19
@Jackson: Kuzma is probably 6’7.5 since 6’8 was his morning height at the pre draft. Maybe even a little less than 6’7.5 so he’s maybe 1/2” taller than Lebron. Ingram should be the same height as Lebron from what I’ve seen. He probably took the 6’7”’listing due to his low weight
Canson said on 24/Oct/19
@Shane: I agree with everything you said. Howard has always looked 6’9-6’9.5 range. Meaning a solid 6’9” guy vs a weak 6’9” but never a weak 6’10” or better. Lebron still looks the same height as he was when he came in the league
Canson said on 24/Oct/19
Phil Jackson was never a barefoot 6’8”. He was 6’7” prime height. Not sure today. Kupchak was a peak 6’9” based on how he stood with the others not 6’9.5 or else he would’ve been 6’10 on paper

LeBron 6’7.5”
Anthony Davis 6’9.75

Just another proof of the fact that they have no clue about how to properly measure. Their measurements are complete garbage that should never be really trusted.
Complete incompetence; I hope they at least managed to figure out how a stadiometer works.
A 100k years go caveman would do a better job.
Editor Rob
I think many might be quite realistic, but there's some that don't add up.
Canson said on 23/Oct/19
@Shane: Sacramento didn’t comply at all. Not sure if Orlando did either. I do see that Kevin Love is listed 6’8” now which is probably 6’7.75 morning height like he was. He and Lebron are the same height at 6’7”. I wonder why Adam Silver being he’s met Lebron doesn’t realize it. Lebron’s height should grab attention lol. And case in point see Lebron with Ingram last year. Ingram really looks taller perhaps. He’s 6’7” on the league site now

Some of these new NBA heights are sooo weird... some guys get downgraded and some guys who obviously need downgrades stay exactly the same...
Shane Gray said on 22/Oct/19
@Canson Almost all teams are updated now at stats.nba.com/playerbios. Obviously some fakes in there. And then even those honest are rounding up at half inch. At least one team didnt comply at all for any players. No chance Lebron measured6'8 1/2" barefoot. But it does have Dwight Howard at 6'9 3/4" as well as AD. So these had to be early morning for Dwight to get that. But I dont buy Lebrons. No way. Did he ever look like the guys formerly listed at 6'10" and 6'11"? No. And that's even while wearing some of tallest shoes if anyone.
Canson said on 22/Oct/19
@Jackson: I think 6’7” is good for him if going by the site’s standards. Afternoon height. Love is likely a morning height too. Probably 6’7.25 at a low. I know a few such as Dan Majerle when they have met him described him as 6’7” as well. 6’7.25 is probably ok being it’s possible that he’s that 5 hours out of bed as maybe he’s 201 which is the highest I could see for him at an afternoon
Canson said on 22/Oct/19
I don’t get it

Click Here
Canson said on 21/Oct/19
@Viper: yes and I love it when you hear because I grew maybe he did. He even claimed 6’7” twice well into his career. He has a physical done regularly so I’m sure at some point in his career he was measured
Canson said on 21/Oct/19
@JT: my guess for afternoon heights:
Given 1.25” basketball shoe. Lebron 6’8”-8.25
Given 1.25” basketball shoe. AD 6’10.75-6’11”

I’d say a 7-8 cm difference between them
Jackson said on 21/Oct/19
@canson

Yeah the 6’8.5” barefoot is definitely not something i can believe.. the absolute tallest i could ever put Lebron at is 6’7.5” or maybe 6’7.75” as there’s times he stacks up very well next to 6’7.75” Kevin Love

Click Here

I have always thought this 6’7.25” listing he has is perfectly fine though.
Jackson said on 21/Oct/19
@manson

No you are wrong. The NBA app and site hasn’t updated anyone’s new height measurements yet. The new heights probably won’t all appear for a little while due to there being so many heights to change.

Canson said on 20/Oct/19
@JT: Davis measured around 6’11” in shoes on jimmy Kimmel. I can buy his listing but Lebron probably is a solid 6’7” still. I wouldn’t be surprised if Lebron were actually 6’6.5 vs 6’8.5
Canson said on 20/Oct/19
@Jackson: problem is we saw Davis measure around 6’11” In shoes on Jimmy Kimmel. And the NBA isn’t going to underlist anyone now. Maybe over list but with the rules the one candidate was Durant and the nets have him at 6’10” now. But also see Lebron with Carmelo Anthony who I saw in person only 3-4 years ago when he was done growing and was still 6’6” (how he looked) or maybe best case his pre draft. Lebron doesn’t look over 6’7” . Too many people would have to have grown for Lebron to be 6’8”
Roderick said on 20/Oct/19
@Rob Maybe he measured 6'7.5" early morning and they put down 6'8.5". Not sure.

I know some people may think I'm a pyscho but I can even buy 6'6.5" for LeBron at a low.

Simple mis-calls or reading a figure wrong can happen.

I nearly it done it myself when measuring somebody, I read something like 65 inches and called out 5ft 6. I quickly corrected it of course 😲

I can totally believe Anthony Davis measured 6'9.75" but not Lebron 6'8.5". If there was one guy who the NBA would want to keep overbilling it would be Lebron James.
Jackson said on 20/Oct/19
He honestly could have grown and Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis are getting underlisted. I mean Kevin and Anthony Davis both do not want to be listed over 6’10” I think they’ve both said that before. The Main thing this has shown me though.... is that some of these guys seems to be able to just dictate whatever height they want while others have no control and just got downgraded.
Canson said on 19/Oct/19
@Rob: I told you back when he measured on Kimmel’s show that he likely wasn’t a full 6’10”. Long hair and the fact Kimmel did a fast measurement in shoes
Canson said on 19/Oct/19
6’8.5 is crap
Canson said on 19/Oct/19
Dwight Howard claimed 6’9” so these are absurd. Lebron is still the same as when he was drafted. Like Rob said there’s no way that’s an inch between Durant and Lebron

He was measured barefoot just like everyone else. 6’8" was his measurement from his rookie year. He has grown 1.25" since then, big whoop. As for the Durant pictures, not all shoes are the same. Perhaps Durant’s shoes were half an inch thicker. Don’t see the point in arguing when these are their heights submitted by the team’s physician.

It's also possible that LeBron grew an inch in his late 20s. He's already an anomaly so it wouldn't surprise me. I definitely found myself thinking these past few years that LeBron looks more center-sized now than he used to, since most centers in the NBA are actually only legit 6'9"-6'11" types.
John93 said on 19/Oct/19
Height in sports is typically added to those with more "star status". So I'm not surprised with this updated height. LeBron is seen as the face of the NBA. Dudes still under 6'8" though.
grom said on 18/Oct/19
Lebron is being listed at 6’8.5” barefoot now. Why are the majority of posters here obsessed with downgrading everyone? I posted years ago it was very possible he grew after the pre-draft measurement, and I was speaking from my own experience of going from 6’3.75” senior year of High School to 6’4.5” my sophomore year of college. These heights were measured by a nurse and a Strength and Conditioning coach respectively.
Cycklops said on 18/Oct/19
According to sources, Lebron is now 6'8.5" according to his official NBA measurement.

That 6'8.5" measurement for him is laughable...but then again he's the biggest stad padder in NBA history and NBA is rigging his height!
John126e said on 18/Oct/19
so after all this crackdown for transparency, the official measurement is out. the NBA is now listing him at... 6'8.5 barefoot, up from a previous 6'8 in shoes. what a joke. Stars get preferrential treatment as usual. many rockets players have dropped in height but Russell westbrook & James harden remain at 6'3 & 6'5, while both were measured under (6'2 & 6'4 respectively) barefoot at the nba combine.
Bukuloot said on 18/Oct/19
Y’all are just absurd. Someone is actually trying to claim that he’s 6’4”. They’re literally listing official barefoot heights and some of you still dispute it. Maaaaybe there could be a tiny discrepancy in morning vs. night, a player slouching or slightly tip-toeing, but that’s moving a half inch at best lol. Besides, LeBron is probably one of the most photographed humans in history lol there’s plenty of comparisons that show 6’8.5” being pretty damn accurate. You really think he’s been working the angles perfectly this whole time to hide the fact that he’s 6’1”?
Editor Rob
KD at 6ft 9.5 and Lebron at 8.5 is hard to swallow. When they pose together Like here, I'm not convinced they measured 1 inch apart.

I'm not sure that clam adds up with guys like Anthony Davis now at 9.75 and Durant who was then given the 9.5. I can't believe they are 1-1.25 inches apart...
Canson said on 16/Oct/19
@Shane: while there may be no proof, to the eyes he doesn’t look like he would measure that other than directly after waking up. To be honest looking at the picture that Joe posted with Durant he can look under the 6’5” mark by a small fraction depending on what Durant actually is.
Canson said on 16/Oct/19
@Viper: that’s actually not 100% true. I’ve seen 6’2 guys listed 6’5” and 6’4 guys like Byron Houston listed 6’7”. If I can recall Barkley was even listed 6’7” in college at one point. I saw an article I believe. And you pointed out to me that Robert Carter was listed 6’10” before and he’s 6’6” range so it’s very much possible. Add in Jimmy Butler 6’5” range now listed 6’8”. Not saying Bagley isn’t 6’9” but he has a good shot at 6’8” range too
viper said on 15/Oct/19
Ill tell you what, I think there is a trillion times more chance Bagley is 6-9 than Ben Simmons.

Simmons measurement is really fishy when he measured 6-8.25 and looks more 6-8 than 6-9.
viper said on 15/Oct/19
Ive only seen one 6-8 guy listed at 6-11 and thats Austin Wiley.

With Bagley's 6-9.5 measurement, it says without shoes, Click Here and the really low chance of a 6-8 guy listed at 6-11 Id have to bet money on Bagley being 6-9.
joe### said on 15/Oct/19
Shane

green doesn't seem to look at measuring 6'5.75 i think 6'5 is quite possible.
Canson said on 15/Oct/19
@Viper: that depends on what time he was measured at the combine and what time he’s measured this year. Also did he lay down before his measurement at the combine? Not saying he did but all of those variable come into play. It’s hard to tell because he can look close to 6’7” and can look the full 6’7” at other times. Melo was measured 6’6.25 but I have a hard time seeing him less than 6’6” on a normal day so not sure if the combine was all that early that year. Also Keith Bogans I’ve spent time around when I was younger on the court and he is essentially my height and he has a combine 6’4.25”
Canson said on 15/Oct/19
@Viper: but how do we know the 6’9.5 was legit? That may have been a shoe height. Remember John Starks was 6’2 listed 6’5”. It’s def possible. I say 6’8” because Embiid likely is less than that. Maybe Bagley is 6’8.5”
viper said on 14/Oct/19
Shouldn't Lebron measure the same 6-7.25
viper said on 14/Oct/19
Bagley asked a reporter how do you think I look.

The reporter said I think you look 6-11 lol
viper said on 14/Oct/19
I really doubt Bagley is under 6-9.

I believe his 6-9.5 measurement in 2014
Jackson said on 14/Oct/19
Draymond in my opinion is 6’5” range. Yet he acted all offended that people thought he was 6’5” so I’m sure nobody on the warriors staff will dare to report him at anything less than 6’6”

My guess for Lebron is they’ll get an early morning measurement for him and round it up to listing him at 6’8”
Shane Gray said on 14/Oct/19
@Joe there is no proof anywhere that they plan to list Dray at 6'5" or even that they measured him at that.

@Shane: you said it well because you’re one of the only other ones who said that the teams are being handcuffed into this. If someone isn’t happy about doing something or are reluctant then I don’t see them being forthright or doing it the way that they’re being told
Canson said on 14/Oct/19
@Viper: maybe 6’7.75 morning not 8.75
Canson said on 14/Oct/19
@Joe: I’m seeing closer to 3”.
Canson said on 14/Oct/19
@joe: maybe 6’8.5 or something. If Embiid is 6’11 then that could be true. 6’11.75 is a morning height for him
viper said on 14/Oct/19
Embiid looks 6-11.5 with 6-9 Bagley.

I only see 2.5 inches
viper said on 14/Oct/19
Bagley is 6-9.

He measured 6-9.5 back in 2014 and it would be super rare to list a 6-8 guy at 6-11
Shane Gray said on 13/Oct/19
@Canson and as u know I support the Kings in keeping their listings. It's their team. They should be able to market it as they feel best. So if they want shoe heights it should be their choice. And if nba wants precise measurements send those in for the computer programs that supposedly factor heights in etc. I still say compromise and have nba reps measure and then let it be known all players measured to within sixteenth quarter or half inch and then either add a standard 1.25 or 1.5 to all players for playing height _shoes. Then u have both precision and consistency with using shoe heights for 40 years.
Shane Gray said on 13/Oct/19
@Canson wow! I am stunned about Bagley in the photo with Joel. No way Bagley is over 6'9" early in day. Yet he kept his 6'11" listing in new system. Lol.
joe### said on 13/Oct/19
only measures that seem to be true are mike scott 6'7.25, lebron 6'7, jason tatum 6'8 looks 6'7.75, draymond green 6'5.

Bayley looks 6'9
198 cm e Asian boy said on 13/Oct/19
I think he's legal 2 m tall
Canson said on 13/Oct/19
@Shane: lol. That’s true. Bagley though does look 6’8” lol. I had to really dig deep but I saw a pic with he and Embiid and he looks much smaller than him. If Embiid measured that early morning he’s probably a strong 6’11” 6’11 and change maybe. I could also believe Hield only being 6’3” if he only measures 6’3.75 or 5/8 (rounded up) early morning. I think the Kings are a textbook example of the lying because none of theirs changed lol

SOME of the height measurements are made up! Not all... just some... some guys have been measured correctly. Some haven’t been measured correctly and some haven’t even been measured yet at all.
Shane Gray said on 11/Oct/19
@Canson several have been made up so far tho by random twitter people lol. Now that doesnt mean that Dwight's is (or isnt) but many were proven might up such as Bagley for example, among others. Kings said their official roster is done and they lowered zero heights from last year. Lol.

Canson said on 11/Oct/19
To everyone saying that the reports of the measurements are made up, Dwight Howard admitted that he’s 6’9”. When asked about the positionless NBA “well i’m 6’9”. and So his is not “wrong”. I doubt most of the radical changes are wrong it’s just that the players don’t accept the new measurements
Canson said on 11/Oct/19
@Jackson: I think he was measured closer to that and is disputing it possibly. But maybe you’re right. I don’t see why he’s so upset tho. He even said himself that he’s not being “drafted” again. That said he seems like he knew what he was doing both in 2012 and now “laying down”

@Rob trust me, NOBODY is rounding down. Nobody. Teams did not want this policy at all. The nba is forcing it. And the vast majority of players do not like it, either.

Yet the nba is letting teams self report. Lol. So teams that hate the policy with players who domt want to "shrink" are absolutely not going to round down.

In fact, as some reporters have noted several teams are still using shoe heights for some players or going 1.5 to 2 inches above barefoot combine heights. It's a joke. For example, one player who was already 24 when measured at combine is now 1.5 inches above that! No chance.

And then they can cheat it other ways, too. For example, so and so measures 6'1 1/4". They then put them down as 6'1 1/2" as the measurement. And then at the half inch you can round back to 6'2".

It is very rare to grow after age 19 but with the few teams reporting youd think it's common to grow significantly. Lol no.

Plauers are friends with the trainers who self report? What do u think happens when a player making 15 million and with massive power tells a trainer vuesy making 80k that he wants a certain listing?

As a knicks beat reporter wrote, there are some obvious frauds on the roster and some shoe heights.

These heights are very unreliable and will remain that way unless nb measures them themselves.

@Shane: Perfectly and I mean perfectly 1000%.... said. Of course guys like Taj Gibson who was 24 grew to 6’10? Lol. He was 6’8.5 (morning) when drafted. He looked 6’8” all along for the most part maybe a wee bit taller than Boozer if we go by afternoon heights. I think they need uniformity in this. Very few players received honest measurements imo. Cam Reddish 6’7.5? Lol? He just measured 6’6.5 and was that before last season when he measured. How convenient like you said to get to 6’7.5 to put him at 6’8 like he was listed before. If I had to guess Cam is probably 6’6” barefoot maybe a touch over if anything. Zion is likely low to mid 6’5” Draymond def just 6’5 too. They need someone to regulate the heights and it’s a known fact that they prefer to measure early morning. But that part is ok if it’s all around the same time and same method and we are aware of it. At least they would all be done the same way (one way). I’ll even go one better. Latrell Sprewell and guys like D Rose got 6’4.5 and 6’1.5. Spree out of his own mouth “I’m 6’4” and Rose is 6’1”. So a guy may measure 6’1” or maybe just a tad bit over early morning and get 6’1.5 and round to 6’2 lol. They’d be a weak 6’1” later in the day and still be a shoe measurement at that point either way you look at it.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/19
@Shane
What did we expect from the NBA though? At the end of the day, they're all about money, and taller = better performance = more money, because society's belief is that the taller the basketball players (and other athletes) are, the more athletic, but that's not necessarily the case.
Jackson said on 10/Oct/19
Draymond claims he hasn’t been measured at 6’5” and just posted a video measuring himself barefoot at 6’6” and he seemed very mad about people thinking he is 6’5”
Canson said on 10/Oct/19
@Joe: I used to think 6’6.75 but I think 6’7” flat or even 6’6 7/8”.

I think there is a strong chance that it will be 6'6.75 in the afternoon and probably fall 199.5 at night on a bad day.

It's unlikely that either of his sons will outgrow him, especially if their mother's not that tall.

The guy on Twitter who claimed LeBron got measured 6’7” barefoot also claimed Marvin Bagely height dropped from 6’11” to 6’8” and Marvin then posted saying it’s completely fake and he hasn’t even been measured yet! So wait a little longer for official height confirmations! Lots of lies going around!
Jackson said on 9/Oct/19
I’m reading a lot of the NBA heights getting revealed on twitter are NOT legit. I’m also reading Lebron has not been measured yet. The guy who said he measured 6’7”. Lots of NBA guys have come out and claimed they haven’t even been measured yet and people are lying for clicks. Does that mean he won’t measure 6’7” barefoot? No he absolutely could be I am hearing he HAS NOT been measured yet.
Shane Gray said on 9/Oct/19
@Canson nba told teams they can round to nearest inch so even those who are measuring honestly are rounding up anything from half inch or above.

And I haven't seen warriors report anyone yet. Some of the heights str just rumors it seems so far.
Editor Rob
Maybe some are rounding down.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Oct/19
I hope Bronny reach up 6'6 in a few years. The younger one Bryce had alot of potential to out grown Lebron.
Editor Rob
I have not seen any evidence yet of Lebron measuring a flat 6ft 7 (no journalist seems to have mentioned it), but it will be interesting to see what he did get.

@Viper: where do you see that? I can’t find lebron’s measurement online from twitter. I’m wondering a couple things now. For the guys measuring right around or right at half, are they rounding down? Draymond Green while I could believe he’s 6’5” flat at a low, i would find hard to believe he’s under that. Maybe extreme low he dips below but normal low maybe not. I wonder what time of the day some of these took place. Like Lebron Rose Draymond and if they were say 6’7.5 6’1.5 6’5.5 and they rounded down (morning measurements). The Sixers and Knicks were morning measurements. Taj Gibson is now 6’10, Lol? Frank Ntilikina is 6’5” again which makes sense if he’s really around 6’4 3/8 or 6’4.5 afternoon height which I always believed. Then the sixers some measured at their pre draft measurements. Lebron generally looks a legit 6’7” or very near it and Draymond doesn’t really look a weak 6’5”. I would be surprised if both were (1 hour out of bed) 6’5 flat and 6’7” but I wouldn’t be surprised if it were maybe 2 or 3 hours out of bed and 6’5.25 and 6’7 possibly. I wonder if some teams went into the afternoon or late AM
Canson said on 7/Oct/19
So all of this 6’8” talk was bs being he is barely 6’7” in the afternoon if even. That puts him possibly 6’6 7/8 or 3/4” perhaps
Canson said on 7/Oct/19
If that’s really the case it means he’s a weak 6’7” barefoot.
viper said on 7/Oct/19
On Twitter it says he measured just
6-7 flat
viper said on 7/Oct/19
I know a former basketball player who told me I was wrong and swore up and down he was 6-8 minimum.

I'm gonna rub it in a little bit :)
Jackson said on 6/Oct/19
I read on Twitter that Lebron was once again measured at 6’7.25” barefoot.
viper said on 6/Oct/19
Wow, nobody thought Embidd was that short.
Canson said on 6/Oct/19
viper said on 5/Oct/19
A few players in the league actually stand to grow a few inches. Most notable among them is Kevin Durant. Durant has spent his career — first with Oklahoma City, then with Golden State and now with Brookyln — being listed at 6-9 when he is more likely taller than 7 feet. Like Kevin Garnett, who was listed at 6-11 but stood closer to 7-1, the versatile guard may have preferred to be listed as smaller to avoid being pigeon-holed as a center.


Lmaooooooo

I will say that Tobias Harris May have grown and same with Kristaps Porzingis and Trey Burke (assuming his was a morning measurement at the combine). But we’re talking around an inch not a few inches. Harris I could almost believe would be 6’7” flat (training camp measurement is 6’7.5) but pre draft 6’6.5”. Those two likely were in the morning meaning he likely was 6’6 when drafted and 6’7” now. For Porzingis it’s different because he’s taller so maybe he grew half inch. He was 7’1.25 so maybe 7’1.75 or 7’2” now (7’2.75 is what he measured this week). Joel Embiid surprised me. I figured he was a clear cut 7’ afternoon height but he cane in at 6’11.75 meaning he’s less than that. That puts into question how tall Nerlens Noel and Jahlil okafor actually are since he towered them (it appeared). They can’t be more than 6’9”. Okafor was 6’9.75 at the combine so makes sense for him and Noel was 6’10” at his combine
Canson said on 6/Oct/19
@Shane: I was off on the number. 7’1.25 so it is 1.5”. What I meant was if he showed up later. I know Frank Ntilikina is an example of that
Shane Gray said on 5/Oct/19
@Canson I saw 7'1 1/4" for KP. Morning wouldn't be a 1.5 gap in all likelihood. I never heard of kp not being drafted at combine.
Canson said on 5/Oct/19
I’m gonna bet his listing stays the same since they measure early morning. He would get 6’7.5 or .75” and get rounded up
Canson said on 5/Oct/19
Shane Gray said on 4/Oct/19
@Canson: that was an inch and a half for Porzingis. Not really buying it. His combine was just before he turned 20. Super late to grow an inch and a half and I think his combine year was 2015. So many ways for them to cheat this with no nba reps there. 4 things could ensure accurate heights in future: no socks, nba reps do all measurements, all measurements for all teams at same time of day and use of quarter inch increments must be used to report and list.

I think it was just an inch for Porzingis. He was 7’1.75 when he was drafted. That was probably his normal low as opposed to a morning height. That is very possible as he was likely measured in the afternoon as some international players don’t attend the combine. Frank Ntilikina was an example. I watched when he was drafted he measured at a different time than the others
Canson said on 5/Oct/19
@Viper: lol is what I said. People are so naive when it comes to height. Always accepting someone growing but not accepting someone actually being shorter than they claim

Lebron does have short proportions for a 6'7" guy. I think a part of it is because he's built and muscular, and not lanky like most basketball players.

One of the most proportional 6'7 dudes I've ever seen. If I saw him without anything to compare to i would've said 6'1.
Canson said on 3/Oct/19
@Shane and Christian: these add up to early morning. Porzingis is a full inch taller than his combine (feasible for someone his size)

Luka Doncic 6’6.75 vs 6’6” flat which adds up

Barea expected to be 5’10” on a good day and was

My predictions: KD 6’10.25 (6’9.5 at a low), Lebron 6’7.5 or 6’7.75” Harden 6’4” Anthony Davis 6’10.5 or .75
