@Jacob719: in my opinion he does fall under 6’7. That’s your opinion that he doesn’t. Remember NBA measurements are usually morning heights. He doesn’t have an inch on melo

Lebron does not fall under 6’7 Canson

@TruthTortoise:

Then you get pics where he appears shorter than a 6’9 and 6’8.75 guy like Howard or Horford. The angle could be off because I doubt he’s shorter than Horford but he and Howard measured the same height of 6’9” barefoot so they may be the same height if anything. The NBA doesn’t undermeasure or underlist. It’s quite the opposite. The likeliest solution is that 6’9” flat was when he was drafted and he’s 6’9” and change today barefoot which points to 6’10.75 only it’s a shoe height not barefoot. Nowitzki is also taller than KD as is Tim Duncan. KD is a rarity in that he’s listed at his barefoot height. Lebron is listed at a shoe height and would likely measure under 6’7.25 at a low maybe even 6’6.75 if he measured in the afternoon. Love is half inch taller than Lebron by the way not shorter.

The reason people make a big deal about him “6’11” is because of his skill set at that size when he’s really not even likely a full 6’11” in shoes but he’s a NBA 6’11” whereas Charles Barkley was 6’4.5ish barefoot and listed in at 6’6” on a roster so they made the big deal about his barefoot height when in reality he was 3+ inches shorter than Karl Malone who was listed 6’9” on paper but was 6’8” or a hair under that barefoot

You guys are all uninformed I see. And damn it's crazy to hear you talk like this- KD is 7 feet. That's why he looks a lot taller than Lebron. Because he is. He said he was 6-9 so he wouldn't get pushed to PF because of his height. Search google. Also I'm pretty sure Love is like half an inch or an inch shorter than LeBron.. Click Here
Canson said on 10/Jun/18
Durant doesn’t have 3” on Lebron. It’s probably 2.5 max. Durant is likely over a full 6’9” looking at him with Draymond Green. I believe Draymond is 6’5” maybe 6’5.25 at a normal low. Lebron looks close to 200 cm most of the time if not a hair over
Canson said on 10/Jun/18
@Caesar: how tall are you?
Canson said on 10/Jun/18
@Caesar: that’s interesting. I’ve met Melo like I mentioned and he’s 6’6”. Lebron also looks taller than Richard Jefferson who is supposed to be 6’7” although I can agree he isn’t. He’s probably 6’6”ish. Lebron looks close in height with Love. Maybe 1/2” diff and there’s no way Love is under 6’7”. Now Blake I can agree he’s half inch (at most) taller than Love. I’ve always had him 6’7.5-.75 as he’s at least 2” shorter than Deandre Jordan. My guesses are below


MJ 194-194.5
Kobe 195
Carter 195-195.5
Caron 195.5-196
Pierce 198
Melo 198-199
Lebron 199-200
Love 201-201.5
Blake 202
Durant 206-207. He’s over 6’9” flat

Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 9/Jun/18
@Fer

Virtually all of the players are inflated. A 6'9" listed player isn't a true 6'9" unless if he's Kevin Durant. And Lebron measured 6'7.25" in the description so 6'8" is impossible.
Caesar said on 7/Jun/18
I've seen Lebron on more than a few occasions...No way. He's 6'6 guys. Look at pictures with Durant (6'9) or Shaq (6'11.5?) Not a chance. I'm assuming his predraft measurement was exaggerated (like Blake Griffin's) or it was an early morning measurement.
Fer said on 3/Jun/18
I think Lebron is 6'8", cause he looks as tall as players who are supposed to be 6'9".
Canson said on 27/May/18
@Christian: I don’t think he’s quite as tall either. I’d say 6’8” range myself but not sure how high. He looks lower 6’8” range at times and higher at others. He could honestly look the 6’8.25 next to Okafor since the latter was a morning measurement at 6’9.75 meaning probably would be 6’9.25ish at a low. But this shows that Lebron is not near a barefoot 6’8” like many suspect. He doesn’t look over 6’6.5 at times then other times looks 6’7”. I could believe Love being closer to 6’7” at a low (6’7.25 perhaps) and although they’re close in height he’s got a slight maybe half inch on Lebron

People have tend to over estimate a true 206cm guy like Durant thinking he must be 6'10 or taller just like people think Garnett have to be 7'0 yet he was an inch shorter than Big Shaq who claim both 6'11 and 7'0. Simmons is truely 1.75" taller than Lebron but he isn't solid 6'9 much appropriate to say he is 6'8 3/4 max.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 26/May/18
@Canson

I haven't seen too many pics of Simmons yet, but I guess him to be around the 6'8"-6'9" range. I don't see him being as tall as Durant though.
Canson said on 26/May/18
Junior, well said!
Canson said on 24/May/18
@Christian: you and Duhon make great points. The one variable is with his 6’8.25 measurement. What time of the day did it take place? He does look taller than Lebron however but Lebron is 6’7ish. I’ll say that but it’s tough to see how much difference is between he and Jahlil Okafor who measured 6’9.75 (morning). Meaning if he didn’t grow he’s around 6’9.25 or 3/8 himself at a low. The pic isn’t very good so it’s hard to tell. At times Simmons looks 6’8 at other times 6’9ish

@Canson True and some people get mislead by the official NBA listing as well. One example many people from IG get fool at Kyrie Irving was 6'3 or taller just because official listing was 6'3. In fact Kyrie may not be holding over 6'1.25" at his lowest measurement. Jahlil Okafor could probably edge out Durant by a small fraction and look more likely to be 6'9 1/4 but get listed at 6'11 and yet he was way shorter. Duhon does have a point that Simmons could be as low as 6'8.5" but certainly not full inch shorter than Durant. Because Durant is not over 6'9 1/4.

Click Here Chris Bosh is 6'10-6'10 1/4. Bosh claim to Barkley that he is 6'10. We see the truth in this picture.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 22/May/18
@Duhon

"with in the past year" means somewhere around mid 2015 because the site was in mid 2016 so it's relatively recent. He could've grown a bit since his measurement was at about 19 years old but I doubt he's more than 6'8.75"
Canson said on 22/May/18
@Junior: what’s funny is that there were a couple posters here previously Kei and Chris that swore Embiid was 7’2” because “the Sixers announcer listed him at that”. That’s foolish amongst other posts that were there involving Kei and how he “was up for over 24 hours” before a dr’s appt and that Deandre Jordan was “at least 6’10” or more when he measured 6’9.75 and look at least 3cm shorter than Kevin garnett. Of course the NBA lists him at 7’0”. The Sixers would be the ones to alter his listing if anything. But Duhon has a point too in that Jahlil Okafor was 6’9.75 (morning height) and likely a strong 6’9” guy at a low (6’9-6’9.25) and Embiid May have had more than 2”. It could appear 3” to be honest but other times he can look 6’11 range.
Duhon said on 22/May/18
If you follow the asterisk of Simmons draft in that link: "*Ben Simmons measurements were recorded within the past year and not at LSU or at the NBA combine."

This wasn't an official draft measurement it wasn't done by the NBA or even his college at the time.

Simmons stands more than an inch taller than LeBron. And I'd be surprosed if he's truly an inch shorter than Durant.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/May/18
Worse angle for a full picture. Durant is not 6'10 and Joel Embiid is not a 7 footer in reality. Click Here:

Embiid is listed at 7'0 but not a barefoot 7'0 Click Here:
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 20/May/18
Simmons was measured 6'8.25" at the draft Click Here so he's not as tall as Durant.
Canson said on 19/May/18
@Duhon: to be honest Simmons can look taller next to him in that picture. But I see what you’re saying as I feel that they would be, at best, the same
joe### said on 19/May/18
Simmons is at best 6´8
Duhon said on 18/May/18
Look how they both stand next to Joel Embiid (strong 7' himself) Click Here, Click Here

About the same.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 17/May/18
@Junior

Lebron might be 203 out of bed or very close to it if he's like 200.5 at his low because guys his height tend to lose nearer to 2.5cm.
Canson said on 17/May/18
Duhon makes good points there. I definitely don’t see Durant anything under 6’9” at a low and that’s if he even gets all the way down to a flat 6’9” at a normal low (not an extreme low). As far as Simmons, he could be the same height or maybe half inch shorter than Durant
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/May/18
@Duhon Simmons look every drops of weak 6'9 between 6'8.5-6'8.75" max. Really not like a guy who can hold a min 6'9 1/4 like Durant. 6'10 1/4 Chris Bosh is taller than Durant by an inch.
Duhon said on 16/May/18
Simmons looks about the same height as Kevin Durant. So I'd say he's a strong 6'9"+ who probably doesn't drop below 6'9".
Canson said on 16/May/18
@Junior: Shane pointed something else out. Not that this necessarily pertains to Lebron and I’ll tell you why, but he did mention that even a “true” afternoon measurement may not really be that. I’m sure players know the tricks and many will lay down to get to their morning height. The only reason why I don’t necessarily know if it’s true with Lebron is because he’s admitted to not being measured after reaching 6’6”. Sure he’s over 6’6” flat but I can almost believe he wasn’t measured as well. For one, he shows 6’7.25 barefoot and 6’8” in shoes. That’s only .75 when most players are getting 1.25”. In addition, Kobe shows a 6’5” barefoot on his when he didn’t attend the pre draft by his own admission. I do agree that Lebron is not 6’8” barefoot. Not sure if you saw my post on Kevin Love’s page but someone who has interacted with him said he looked only 6’7”. Dan Majerle also said below that he’s only 6’7”. I take that as 6’7” and change as it doesn’t look only a flat 6’7” but Love was measured in the afternoon in 2008. It shifted in 09. Not sure if they were doing them in the afternoon or morning in previous years but presumably in 2007 they did as Durant is 6’9” flat. The most I could buy for Lebron is 6’7” flat but I can agree probably 6’6.75 with Love or Boozer who is also supposedly closer to 6’7” than 6’8” according to NBA circles. RJ also said Lebron was 6’9 and that he was 2” taller than Bron but I don’t believe it. That looks at most 1” and that’s how it looks in game. My guess is that RJ is only 6’6” and that 6’7.25 May be a shoe height. RJ is probably over 2” shorter than KMart as well

@Gonzalo I am @martitaturas in twitter. A freak of heights
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/May/18
@Gonzalo I wouldn't be surprised if you're fool by camera angle, ground, lower and higher pavement thing, shoe advantage as well. Lebron is not even 203cm out of bed and at most 202-202.5cm came at his low 200-200.7cm. Draft measurement took in the early morning before 7.30am and Lebron measured between 201-201.3cm.

Click Here Check on here. Ben Simmons is 1.5-1.75" taller than Lebron. Simmons probably at his low of the day not much over 6'8.5" so how can Lebron be 6'8?
Gonzalo said on 14/May/18
LeBron can look taller than 2`01. He towered over Lonzo Ball, listed here at 1`96. He looked as tall as Ben Simmons and as tall yesterday as Jayson Tatum. He looked taller than Kyle Korver. I wouldn´t be surprised if he was around 2`03
Canson said on 11/May/18
@Junior: wade needs a downgrade badly. Not even close. I’d be hard pressed to see a significant difference between he and Russ. If Russ grew its to maybe 189 but 189 and 6’2.25 aren’t much different. Wade isn’t but maybe 1 cm taller. I would say 190ish for Wade to be honest.
Canson said on 11/May/18
Well said Shane!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/May/18
Atually if D Wade stay 6'3 3/4 i did give a 1/8 upgrade to Lebron and 1/8 to Carmelo.
Shane said on 10/May/18
@Canson: Something we should all consider is the fact that the years before 2009 when afternoon measurements occurred at least some years is this: an afternoon measurement doesn't at all guarantee a typical afternoon measurement. Why? Because at least some of these guys knew that if they slept late or layed around prior to measurement they could still achieve close to a morning/out of bed height in afternoon. Certainly possible some guys were wise and figured this out.
Smiles03 said on 9/May/18
6'6
Canson said on 7/May/18
OG does look small next to him at times. But a lot could be because of the way Lebron is built. If OG really measured 6’6.25 at the combine he’s likely around 6’5.75 at a low since the combine is in the AM. Lebron could look taller at times but with a guy like Melo, Carlos Boozer or even Kevin Love though, he looks about 6’7” however. He may still be a full 6’7” in the afternoon perhaps
firstbigga said on 5/May/18
Please guys.. are you watching the series against toronto? The height differece with OG anunoby is huge, I legit thought this guy's thoo short to be on lebron, I was thinking he's like 6-5 and the NBA could list him 198 or 201 cm.. I go up and see he's' listed at 6 8 and he actually is barefoot 6.6.25.
Canson 194cm said on 30/Apr/18
Out of bed 6’7.75
Before bed 6’6.75
Canson said on 23/Apr/18
@Junior: maybe 6’7 for Lebron or 6’6.75 and 6’4.75 for Bean. Looks a solid 2” at worst
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Apr/18
I always could see a barely 5.5cm between Kobe and Lebron. I would throw a 5.8cm make Lebron a 6'7 but really not 6.4cm (2.5") that much.
Canson said on 20/Apr/18
@Viper: I think he deserves a page. The only one to compare him to that we know was accurately measured was The Big O. He was measured at 6’4 3/4, but don’t know what time of the day. West could look what you said but also could look similar to Chick Hearn at times. That’s of course provided Hearn was really 6’3” in his prime
Canson said on 18/Apr/18
@Christian: that’s a good point. Honestly, he would be a good one for Rob to list here. I could only see 6’3” because of how he looked with Hearn and some others but you’re right and so is Viper. He is listed as 6’2” for the bulk of his career. Definitely not 6’4.5 tho lol
viper said on 18/Apr/18
If Rob gave West a page he would have him at 6-2 max
viper said on 18/Apr/18
Lol he's not 6-4.5 in shoes because there is no way in hell he's 6-3.

6-2 max
viper said on 18/Apr/18
Don't think he was ever more than just a flat 6-2
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 18/Apr/18
@Canson

I wonder why West was listed 6'2" throughout his career if he was really 6'3".
Canson said on 17/Apr/18
@Viper: not sure now. I found a few links actually calling him 6’3”. One is below and also saw at WVU he was. But you’re right in that he was listed at 6’2” for a lot of his career. I saw him next to Chick Hearn and really can’t tell who was taller. One thing is for sure he is not 6’4 1/2. That’s a shoe height of some sort. Whether it’s earlier in the day and he’s really a strong 6’2” to weak 6’3” or if that’s near his low and he’s really 6’3 barefoot it is still definitely a shoe height

Click Here
Canson said on 17/Apr/18
@viper: he was. They’ve called him 6’3 as well at another point and he claimed 6’4.5. But 6’2 is most common
viper said on 17/Apr/18
West was listed at 6-2 his whole career
Canson said on 13/Apr/18
@Viper: lol true! But West has lost height over the years. He was supposedly 6’3 at his peak. 6’4 1/2 with sneaks I could maybe see in the morning. If he was 6’2 range it was higher imho. Not low
viper said on 13/Apr/18
Canson, you know that 6-2 Jerry West claims 6-4.5 lol. Like the NBA would underlist by almost 3 inches. What's up with that
Canson said on 11/Apr/18
@Dillon: Many NBA players lie regardless of their height tall or short
Dillon Rice said on 9/Apr/18
@Canson How do you know for sure? It’s always possible. Why would Durant say he is 6’10 3/4 barefoot? Why would you feel the need to lie at that height?
Canson said on 9/Apr/18
@Dillon: those are their draft measurements. They’re not taller than what they measured. question is are they really as tall as they’re listed on their predraft?
Canson said on 8/Apr/18
@Dillon: those guys did not grow. I respect Johnson but he is a notorious upgrader
Canson said on 8/Apr/18
@Johnson: not sounding rude here but How did 4 NBA players all grow after they were drafted? I mean sometimes you just need to use Common Sense. 4 players don’t grow by an inch Or more.
Dillon Rice said on 6/Apr/18
@Johnson I looked at your site. Personally I have a hard time believing Kevin Durant is only 6’9, Lebron is only 6’7, Carmelo is only 6’6 and Russell Westbrook is only 6’2 so I agree with you that those guys might be under listed.
Canson said on 5/Apr/18
@Original Ice: that’s about as high as I can see him a flat 6’7” if he’s standing straight. Someone here posted a video where they swore he said he was 6’6.5 himself but I couldn’t tell that he was referring to himself from it. 6’6.5 would look rather low to me to be honest but I could buy 6’6.75 since we would be talking 1/4” at that stage. At times he looks close to 1” taller than melo and at times 1/2” or 2cm so 6’6.5 would put Melo maybe under when I met him in person and he’s definitely a legit 6’6” at the worst maybe more like what he measured but definitely not less than 198cm. A guy that size could easily wear a pair of his own shoes (Lebron) and be 6’8 in them even without any extra help

Lebron looks to be an inch or so taller than measured 6’7 Montrezl Harrell. Of course this could have been a morning measurement so who knows. But I definitely wouldn’t put Lebron below 6’7.25.

Original Ice said on 2/Apr/18
Realistically, I can see him at 6'7" at his lowest, but not beneath it.
Canson said on 29/Mar/18
May be a bit high compared to Melo

Out of bed 6’7.5-.75
Afternoon 6’6.75
Canson said on 13/Mar/18
Average is too high. He’s prob around 200 which qualifies for 6’7”. He can’t be too much less as he’s taller than Melo or Paul Pierce who are both 198 range guys but shorter than Carlos Boozer or Tristan Thompson or Kevin love. Worst case maybe he dips to 6’6 5/8 best case 6’7” flat and the other guys edge him by half
Canson said on 5/Mar/18
@Dillon: I would have to say Casspi is 6’7.25-.5 (2009 was first year they began morning measurements as they showed with Blake Griffin). It’s possible he’s grown tho so maybe solid 6’7.5. Nonetheless he has 2-3” (as opposed to 3”) on Kobe and prob half inch on Lebron. So I agree he’s taller than both guys. But I’m a pic like that perspective can get lost sometimes
Dillon Rice said on 3/Mar/18
6’7.75 Omri Casspi looks a bit taller than Lebron and 3 inches taller than Kobe.

Click Here
Canson said on 3/Mar/18
Looks more like 200cm at a low. Not a full 6’7”.

@Height: not sure if he’s shorter than Pippen but definitely isn’t taller. Pippen may edge him my a hair at a full 6’7” at most
Canson said on 25/Feb/18
@rob: he may not have been measured at all. It was said he never was measured after reaching 6’6”. Looking at him with Melo I find it hard to see 6’7.25 same with Boozer etc
J?lio Guglu said on 24/Feb/18
rob you do not think it strange the height with sneakers to be only 2 centimeters more than the height barefoot, being that any sneakers of basketball is 3 centimeters of height???
Editor Rob
Maybe he had a thinner model, you'd expect though 1-1.5 inches for most of the barefoot+sneaker measurement differences.
Canson said on 24/Feb/18
@JKE168: yea I actually have always thought that Lebron only mildly edged out Carmelo. I always figured it was about half inch to 2cm. I had Lebron Pegged around 200 cm before (6’6.75) maybe best 6’7” and Carmelo pegged right at 198.5 when I met him. But if Lebron is 6’6.5 then could mean Melo dips to 6’6 flat which is possible as well. My wife and others said 1.5 or 2 or 1.5-2”. So that could point right to 6’6” too. I personally figured about 198.5 but never know what the persons habits were the day you met them like if I got more time on my feet than he did and maybe he wasn’t at a low by that stage. However looking at Melo elsewhere he never looks below 6’6” tho either. He looks a hair taller than Paul pierce at times as well who should be a full 6’6. But that was a good find on your part. Just not sure about what Kyrie asked was he asking Lebron his height or someone else’s? And you know me I don’t upgrade unless I am convinced and am not afraid to downgrade someone in addition to the fact that I know how the NBA works with measurements having been close to the game via people I know who’ve made it as well as a scout that was my former AAU coach and also just having played at the collegiate level. I only asked about what kyrie said because it sounded to me like he said “How tall is he?” Not how tall are you? Meaning that he may have been referring to someone else. Since the video came into the conversation after they had already likely been talking. As far as the estimate tho if Kyrie is 6’1.5 which he actually looks imho then Lebron really looks only about 5” taller most of the time. Meaning 6’6.5 or .75 (at best he’s 6’7 flat) and Lebron looks a little smaller than the 6’7.75 listed guys like Love or Boozer or Green as well. I also wonder about JR Smith height. He looks 6’4 range imho not 6’5.5. He doesn’t look that tall on the court. I always get suspicious about the measurements that only show a barefoot and no in shoe. I can see that being his shoe height to be honest

@JKE168: I never heard Kyrie ask him but because the audio wasn’t that good. I’m not denying that he is that because it’s very reasonable that he may only be. I’ve met Carmelo before and he was an easy 6’6” and Lebron isn’t that much taller than him. The degree of 6’6” for Melo may be harder for me to judge tho. I saw him about 2” taller than me the others around us say 1.5-2”. 6’6.25 is feasible tho a bit earlier in the day as he would likely be closer to 6’7” out of bed.

It sounds like Kyrie actually says “how tall is he”? Not how tall are you to lebron. But Lebron did say he was 6’6” range before too as he also has said he’s 6’7” and 6’8. 6’6.5 seems low imho but possible. I would’ve said he’s no less than 200cm (6’6.75)
JKE 168 cm said on 23/Feb/18
@Canson Who else was LeBron talking about then? Kyrie directly asked him how tall he was, not anyone else. I'm not convinced that LeBron is a full inch taller than Carmelo Anthony, sometimes they even look the same height! I agree with you that some of the listings on the NBA pre-draft are completely inaccurate.
Height said on 23/Feb/18
Shorter than Pippen.
Canson said on 22/Feb/18
@firstbigga: I can buy Green at 6’7.5-6’7.75 but not bigger he is about the same or slightly less than Kevin Love and WAs shorter than Durant who is 6’9” range when they played together. Most guys don’t grow a full inch at that age either. Lebron is in fact about 6’7”. He was said to be measured at 6’7.25 when drafted. He also admitted to not being measured after surpassing 6’6” as well so not sure. Could look 6’6.75 as well at times but that could mean he was measured in the morning at the 6-7 1/4

@JKE168: I don’t think Lebron was referring to himself but not sure. He could be that height at a low in the evening. I saw where Junior said his 6’4 5/8 friend met him and put him no more than 200cm. That would mean melo is max 6’6” maybe less. But I’ve met Melo and he looked a solid 6’6” minimum. I could easily give him his draft height but then again the people around me when I met him did say 1.5-2”. Chances are if I’m 193.7-193.9 that I may have been when I met him since it was early evening and he was likely at a low as well.

@Dilson Green was actually measured 6.9.5 with shoes and 6.7.75 barefoot when he was 20/21, he may even have gotten a bit taller. He's slighlty taller than Lebron and he is absolutely taller than 6 7 guys
Junior Bronbron said on 20/Feb/18
Rob responds, are they measured with sneakers and without sneakers at the same time or every other time?
Editor Rob
I believe they do it at the same time, all the measurements like height wingspan and reach.
Anonymous11 said on 16/Feb/18
Rob you didn’t post my question regarding how to measure head length. Is it okay to measure head length by putting a square object like a shoe box or book on top of your head ,then placing a ruler just beneath it and then seeing in the mirror at what mark does it meet the chin ? I’m really confused
Editor Rob
It's going a bit off topic, but yes, you can measure head length in that manner. I did a video Nearly 3 years ago showing me measuring head length in a similar fashion.

You got to be careful not to tilt your head up or you will under-measure your head length.
Canson said on 16/Feb/18
@Dillon: agreed. he’s close enough to 6’7” if he isn’t a full 6’7”. Not less than about 6’6.75 at a low. Green may actually edge Bron by a hair to be honest. He may be on the stronger side of 6’7”. I think Love is 6’7.5-.75. The one who is really really suspect is Blake Griffin. That had to have included his hair or the lever wasn’t down all the way because Deandre Jordan looked at least 2” taller than him at 6’9.75ish and Paul Pierce looked less than 2” shorter than Blake to be honest. Now Blake was measured early AM and Love was in the afternoon but that still wouldn’t add up imho. I think Blake is more his height than 6’8” which he should be if he were that in the AM.
Dillon Rice said on 15/Feb/18
@Canson Lebron same height as 6’7 Jeff Green. Convinced he’s 6’7 barefoot. You’re right. A little shorter than 6’7.75 Kevin Love. All adds up.

Paulo Junior2 said on 8/Feb/18
Editor Rob Do you agree with me that the height in the Nba is fully manipulated in the Draft? Both barefoot and tennis height?
Editor Rob
I feel they can afford 20,000 dollars to get a few custom 8 feet capable stadiometers built that do measurements to 1mm.

I don't know if they actually manipulate or lie about heights when taking measurements. Some little mistakes might creep in like 1/4 inches here and there.
Anonymous11 said on 7/Feb/18
Hi Rob how long might his head be? At closer to 7 feet than 6 feet I’m sure his head would be huge
Editor Rob
A quick look at his head and I wouldn't have thought enormous, pretty typical for a 6ft 7-8 guy, a good 10 inches or so.
Paull said on 3/Feb/18
Rob, did the test and my basketball shoes gave me 3 centimeters q more height, Intao it is impossible for his shoes to give only 2 inches higher, I think as many it was not measured
Canson said on 3/Feb/18
@Junior and Johnson: i get what both of you are saying but that’s most likely from being a bit reclined. Like sitting on the couch. Like I was telling you Johnson even if you’re not fully reclined you’re still a touch reclined on a couch. So what you both said is true you will gain height back. I can agree with both of you maybe before bed isn’t the right vehicle or term but afternoon height like maybe 6pm when someone is home from work. One thing I’ve noticed is I can get back to 193.9 or 194 if I sit slightly reclined on a couch. I’m 193.7 or 193.8 when I first get home.
Canson said on 3/Feb/18
@Junior: that’s the same kinda height I give Cam. Since the combine is in the AM around 6am I would put him more at about 6’4.75 at best. Typically we see 3/8-1/2 lower in th evening but Cam looks like he holds 195cm very well. I actually can see what your friend is saying that Lebron is 200 at his lowest
Junior Hernandez said on 2/Feb/18
@Johnson quite true. Sometimes i was measure 1-3mm lower in the evening 6-8pm than before bed.
Johnson said on 2/Feb/18
But everybody does the same so it is better to rule out before bed height

And plus, evening height is not taller than night height so it is absurd to name "before bed height"

Typical Lowest you reach it on evening not night
Junior Hernandez said on 2/Feb/18
More look into Lebron i can see him close to 6'7 although my 6'4 5/8 friend met him at night insist he look no taller than 200cm. I would give 6'6 7/8 lowest for Lebron since Cam Newton quoted him at 6'7 that might be close to it. Cam is also more like 6'4 7/8 unlikely a big 6'5.
Canson said on 1/Feb/18
@Johnson: again because you are on the couch which likely means you are somewhat reclined. Maybe not fully but that’s what happens because I’ve done that before and come back to 194 before from 193.7. If I sit in a chair or don’t sit long I am 193.7 at night. If I’m constantly on my feet 193ish a flat 6’4”
Johnson said on 31/Jan/18
@Canson I do not lay back. I am a little taller at night. 0.5 cm sometimes. Just relax sitting on sofa

Rob also is taller in the video after dinner. Lowest of the day is evening not before bed
Canson said on 30/Jan/18
@Johnson: what you said makes no sense. Before bed meaning at a normal low during a day not him laying back reclining
Johnson said on 29/Jan/18
@Canson Before bed he has had dinner and hydrated and sofa relax... I think his low is evening, before bed can he recovers a bit mms
Canson said on 28/Jan/18
He may hit 6’8” in a pair of Air Max. Barefoot would be 202-203 out of bed and 200 range before bed
Paulo J?nior said on 27/Jan/18
People have something wrong, an 3cm basketball shoes at least in height, because his gave 2 cm look at the size of the shoes he uses.
Canson said on 27/Jan/18
@Johnson: you still believe all of that even after Max on Kyrie’s page said Rose is 6’1.5 in person and as I’ve said Melo is 6’6.25. I guess you can believe what you want but you and Dillon both have your head in the clouds thinking like that. It can happen but it’s very rare that anyone grows that much after 18-19. Most stop right at that point
Canson said on 27/Jan/18
@Dillon: I see what you’re doing now. You take his shoe height. His combine heights are 6’7.25 barefoot and 6’8” in shoes

And so you admitting you’re a Kobe fan is why you want him to be 6’5-6’6. I’m a Jordan and a wade fan yet I put them at where I feel they accurately are. I played ball myself and some of my opponents such as Keith Bogans Jarrett Jack Delonte West Caron Butler Kirk Hinrich TJ Ford Even Wade when I was younger in AAU are all in the NBA. I also have my former AAU coach who scouted for years with a couple teams and he’s met Lebron said “about 6’7” met Wade said “at most 6’3 but likely 6’2/6’3” Jordan “6’4/6’5 or about as tall as I am Barkley “6’4/6’5 or about as tall as I am” Kobe “6’5ish about 6’5” is what he said. He himself is 6’2” so it’s not as hard to tell heights not to mention he has the inside knowledge by talking to people on other teams. Not sure if you’ve heard of Otis Smith the Orlando Magic GM he said himself when Wade played for Miami that he’s 6’4” on a good day as did Spoelstra and Lebron being honest said he’s max 6’3 then joked and said he’s 6’1-6’2. I don’t believe that low but I do believe that Wade is 6’2” range barefoot and that he is a case where his shoe measurement was moved into the barefoot column. I can look at Wade with caron Butler on camera and Keith Bogans who are 6’5 and 6’4 respectively as their pre draft show and see he’s shoeter. Btw Caron Butler next to Kobe is clearly about half inch taller. Butlers pre draft is 6’5.25 and I saw Butler about 8 years back when he was still playing here for the Wizards and he’s still about .5-1” taller than me so that seems bang on (don’t put him less than maybe 196cm 6’5 1/8) making Kobe 6’4.75 like he says.

@Dillon there are guys who grow up since 18-19 like 0.5-1.5 cm. Not that uncommon

Not sure on LeBron is 201.5 or 202 but Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant I think they grew up since draft

Case of Kevin Durant is so obvious...

@Canson Where’s the interview where he said he’s 6’7? Do you have the link?
Canson said on 25/Jan/18
Guys his pre draft is 6’7.25. He’s not 2” taller than Melo he’s at most 1/2” or 2cm. He’s 6’7” max
logan said on 17/Jan/18
With Big Show, LeBron actually looked 6'8" or even 6'8" 1/4 at times. But he is probably 6'7" 1/2 on a good day.
Canson said on 16/Jan/18
@Derrifk: I can’t see him at 6’8 tho dude. He’s shorter than Love Thompson and Boozer are. I remember him saying he’s 6’7” when he talked about his career if he weren’t a pro athlete he mentioned his 6’7” stature. Maybe the 6’7.25 was actually a measurement for him but I saw him mention he was never measured. He also said once he’s 6’6” but that’s not possible more like 6’6.5 or .75 at a low as a matter of fact. I also saw where one guy here knew his coach from St Vincent St Francis and he said he was 6’6” or so not 6’8 (post is gone now because it was a while back). Also proceeding that post one guy said he met he and Pippen once and that Pippen was taller than him but not so sure I see that either. They are likely similar in height. Both about 6’7. If pippen is taller it’s not by more than maybe half inch. I also saw Junior post that one of his friends met Lebron (194-195cm) and said Lebron is no more than 2” taller than he was. My guesses Pippen could’ve been a full 6’7” peak as that’s how he was listed with Chicago not 6’8 like he was with Portland or even 6’7.5 his supposed barefoot measurement when they didn’t use 1/4” increments. Pippen never appeared that tall to me. I’d have said Magic would edge him peak and was likely 201 himself
Canson said on 16/Jan/18
@Derrifk: he does at times I agree. Other times with Love Thompson Boozer or Melo he doesn’t look more than 6’6.5 or 6’6.75. I’d go with the higher of the 2” honestly. He can possibly be a full 6’7” with Melo as the difference can be half inch or a full inch likely 2cm is fair. I’d give Melo his pre draft in all honesty as I’ve met him. He had me by 4-5cm is how I would call it and I’m just under 194cm. He looked the same or a hair taller than my legit 6’6 friend I have.
Derrifk said on 16/Jan/18
Canson I dunno dude looks at least 6’7 I don’t see him falling under it at times he does look 6’8
Canson said on 15/Jan/18
@Derrifk: I think Lebron looks 6’7” flat or 200cm probably when next to Melo. I saw Melo in person and stood next to him and he’s 198-199 as listed. That makes Lonzo about 193.5-194.5 prob
Derrifk said on 14/Jan/18

@Jordan: Do you mean Lebron? There is evidence he’s under 6’7” but it’s not by that much. None of us would likely notice it in person as 6’6.5-6’7” range is as low as he would be. I only say that as a poster here Junior knows someone who met him and placed him 199-200 and next to Melo Lebron doesn’t look a full inch taller. It’s half inch or 2cm max. I’ve met Melo he’s 6’6-6’6.25. And had me by max 2” if Lebron is 200cm at his low and I were to meet him I would likely estimate him 6’7” which is fair for a claim for someone who falls In that zone
Canson said on 1/Jan/18
@Lebronfan: if that’s the case he’s 6’7 then.
Lebron fan said on 30/Dec/17
No way he’s under 6’7 I’d say 6’8 in the morning and 6’7 at night so 6’7.5
Jordan said on 29/Dec/17
If anyone says Kenton is under 6foot7 they have major issues.
Canson said on 28/Dec/17
@Johnson: that’s exactly how he looks with Melo too on TV about half inch taller max. Sometimes 1-2cm. Melo at 6’6.25 makes Lebron 6’6.75 prob. I remember Junior mentioned his buddy met Lebron and he looked 199-200 at a low I can believe that because Melo looks 198+ at his
Canson said on 28/Dec/17
@Junior: I think the 6-7am began in more recent years. Some players I’ve met in person such as Caron butler and Carmelo Anthony even Keith Bogans can look around their pre draft heights. Butler had a clear 1/2-1” actually wouldnt hesitate to say closer to an inch Bogans looked roughly the same height as me Melo looked his too. But then I’ve seen Hinrich and he looked close to 2” shorter. I’d give him more of a 189 range than 190.
Canson said on 28/Dec/17
@The Rock: how are you going to accuse someone (Boozer) of wearing thicker sneakers just because they make Lebron look shorter than listed? That is slander if you ask me. That’s about the stupidest thing I’ve heard ever. The thicker sneakers don’t change their barefoot heights and he’s clearly still taller than Lebron is. Oh and are you telling me Lebron is 2” taller than Carmelo? Melo was measured 6’6.25 and is about that in person? There is not even an inch between them. to say he is 6’8” because RJ is shorter than him? Maybe RJ isn’t 6’7.25 is the other answer. Don’t make up stuff just because you are a Lebron fanboy. Nobody takes you seriously so just put yourself out of your misery and stop posting because you sound like a moron and have a clear agenda of making Lebron taller. His height has nothing to do with his skills or his place in history. It is just a characteristic of him
Canson said on 28/Dec/17
@The Rock: I’m a Manlet you say? Why is that because all of these NBA players you want to make love to aren’t as y’all as you want them to be? Well take it up with Rob then because he has Lebron listed at his pre draft so I guess he’s downgrading too? How are you going to tell me Lebron is 6’8” when he’s not as tall as Love or Boozer or Thompson and only was supposedly measured 6’7.25? He is not 4” taller than Ball either. That’s less than 3”. Go take your fanboy self elsewhere possibly to the NBA groupies club you troll

Junior said on 19/Dec/17
@The Rock , 6'8 was a serious joke and Canson did not downgrade all players height and he just specifically talk on the logic on the time being people get measure by fact everyone drop height upon morning measurement to latest night. NBA draft measure all players in the early morning between 6-7am that would make a height loss from that period of time to afternoon about 1.5cm if Lebron measure 201.3cm by draft most likely he is not going to measure over 199.8cm by evening so let alone 6'8 and don't just trust NBA official given players height on the wikipedia and even their official weight were put up higher to match their listed height. The only NBA player i've met was Matt Barnes several years back doesn't look 6'7 as listed and probably between 6'6-6'6.25" and look under 206 or 210 pounds really not as listed 226 pounds and 6'7 that high.

@Jalen: he’s shorter than Love and Boozer and Thompson. No chance he grew. He even admitted he wasn’t measured after he reached 6’6”. Half inch to 2cm taller than Melo max. If he is a full 6’7” at night I’d be very surprised. I’d say 200 next to them
Canson said on 2/Dec/17
@Real Talk: that can look just a 2” difference with Kobe and Lebron. Kobe measured 6’4 3/4 actually according to his wife but i did see somewhere where he said he’s 6’4 1/2 at a basketball camp. Lebron imho is not more than 6’6.75 at his lowest. Maybe even 199-200. I’ve met Carmelo Anthony and by standing next to him i was 193.9cm that day he was 4-5cm taller or 1.5-2”. So 6’6 1/8-1/4 looks right

@ncaa: you’re right about Melo I’ve met him and im a hair under 194cm (6’4 1/4-3/8 myself) and Melo was max 2” Taller than me when we met. The people around us said 1.5-2” is how it appeared but I’ll call him his pre draft 6’6.25. I guessed myself 4-5cm which puts him around 198.5ish at his lowest

Porzingis has to be at least 7’1” barefoot. If not 7’1.25 that’s more like a 7” difference in most pics with them

@Greek: Blake griffin doesn’t look only 201. But who knows maybe somehow he is. I would have to say a minimum of 202 tho. Lebron isn’t under 199.5 at an extreme low and probably walks even in the afternoon around 200cm worst case like Junior said his friend who is 6’4 5/8 said Lebron was 2” taller Lebron would be 199.5-200 at that which i believe but a straight 6’6” is way too small for him. Carmelo on the other hand may be that after a long day on the court but i don’t see him dipping far below 6’6” even after a quadruple OT game maybe an extreme for him 6’5 3/4-7/8 but a normal day wouldn’t be under 6’6” flat if he even gets that low
Canson said on 21/Nov/17
@Johnson: that is not a good picture esp when he has a clear footwear advantage and is favored by the camera. However he is not as low as 6’5 1/2” either he’s at more a weak to solid 6’7”. But not over 6’7. He barely edges Melo out who’s 6’6.25
Greek said on 21/Nov/17
Exactly look at his feet . He's wearing big shoes and still doesnt look 4 inches taller . Prince williams looked 6ft2 that day with 6ft3 adam silver. The guy is 6ft7 morning 6ft6 at night . I'm very certain of that. Another proof here is lebron standing with 6ft7.25 blake griffin and 6ft3 wade. Griffin has about an 3cm or 1.25 on him and he only has about 3inches on wade. He also looks 3 inches shorter than 205-206cm durant and anthony davis. Lebron is 6ft6 at night and 6ft7 in the morning.
Canson said on 20/Nov/17
he’s for sure not 6’5.5 even after a quadruple overtime game. 6’6.5 is probably an “extreme low” for him. No way 6’7.5 he’s shorter than Kevin Love. He’s about a half inch taller than Carmelo is and Having stood right next to Melo about two years ago when he was full grown he is a 198/199 guy like his draft height States

Tbh it looks like Lebron could very well be 6’8. He looks an inch taller than Richard Jefferson who’s 6’7. You can definitely grow after 18. I was around 6’4.5 for the longest time and finally at 22 I now measure just over 6’5 barefoot. I thought for sure I was done growing but I think growth is possible up until about 22 or 23

Lebron looks very tall, almost too tall on court. At least 6ft7.25in. Maybe not legit 6ft8in, but very close to it. I think it's time for upgrade - 6ft7.5in.

Melo is no shorter than Lebron.
Canson said on 3/Nov/17
@Frost: agreed! And this also sheds light as to how a legit 6’8” would actually appear. Which is even taller than Lebron. Lebron is like at best an afternoon 6’7. My guess is he’s no more than 200cm tho 6’6.75ish. He doesn’t have that much on Melo and Melo in person stood right next to me and edged me by max 2” but the diff was actually 1.5-2” 4-5cm so that likely puts him at his draft height at best 6’6.25. I’m 6’4 1/4-3/8 at a normal low
Frost said on 31/Oct/17
@Canson which essentially means one must duck under standard door frames pretty much at all times.

Which is quite gigantic all things considered. I'm sure a fellow like Lebron could go quite a while before seeing someone as tall as him on the streets.

@Junior: I can totally buy 199/200 at night for him. I’d def day he’s closer to 200 but 199.5-200 could make more sense. I remember cam newton in the article I posted below calling him 6’7” and cam probably isn’t a full 6’5 in the afternoon. Now I did have a friend (an acquaintance more or less) that has met Lebron. He is a fan of his tho lol. This guy is similar in size with me and your buddy but will prob be closer to him than me as he edges me by a cm. He claims 6’4.75 and looks at least 6’4 5/8 at his lowest (noticeably a cm taller than I am). He said Lebron was 6’8 but I can’t take that seriously. I also know a former scout who has met Lebron and pegged him the way your buddy did “about 6’7” or 6’7” tops. Looking at him with Kobe that looks max a 5cm diff maybe less. And seeing Lebron with boozer (the scout has met boozer and pegged him 6’7-6’7.5) boozer is close to an inch taller at worst case half inch. I think 6’6.5-6’7 for Lebron makes sense next to Carmelo who is almost right on the money 6’6.25. Not sure if It was because Lebron wasn’t measured or not tho. He claims after reaching 6’6 to never being measured and he has also said that he’s 6’7” when speaking to kids in an article about being an opthomologist if he hadn’t been a pro baller like he is. He also said 6’7 240 after once saying he was 6’9” 260.

Your friend tho seems quite honest and unbiased as opposed to the guy that I know who is your buddy’s height. He is a professed fan of LbJ even saying he’s better than Jordan and the GOAT. I can tell the bias because he met Kobe and said Kobe is his height but that Lebron is 6’8” that doesn’t add up.

Lebron was listed 6ft 7inches without shoes during the draft and now he's taller. may be he's 6ft 7and 4/3inches or 6ft 8and 0.25inches bare foot and maybe 6ft 8.8 (almost 6ft 9 inches) in shoes
Canson said on 20/Oct/17
Doesn’t really look above 200 with boozer or love or Thompson. Boozer looks closer to 6’7 at times than almost 6’8”

I had a close friend who atually met Lebron James in real one night outside a bar. He walk up to Lebron shook hand had a minute talk and thought of he was friend dude and little under 6'7 not that bad posture of Lebron that day he mention, he notice he was between 199-200cm , my friend was 194.6cm at his lowest say no chance Lebron Lebron was over two inch taller than him. Although i'm not quite buying his words on Lebron because i believe Lebron was at least 6'7 but my friend he always judge height accurately and one time i measure him at night right on 6'4-5/8 just as he claim he was 194/195cm all the time. If you're also correct about guessing Lebron lowest 200cm my thoughts most NBA player should shove off 1cm here. Maybe most of them were measure morning on listing in this site.
Canson said on 10/Oct/17
@Anonymous: they tailor it to position in my opinion as far as the inflation. That’s not an opinion it’s a fact actually because I know a scout. Look at wade with Caron Butler. Butler in person has always had me by a little bit. I’d put it around 2cm 196cm no less than a full 6’5” if I was off no higher than 6’5.25. A good pic of them that isn’t skewed makes butler at minimum 2” taller. Key factor here is Kobe is close to 2” if not a full 2” taller than wade is and butler is a marginal fraction taller than Kobe. I don’t see much diff between wade and Russell Westbrook. I believe Russ is measured right he looks a strong 6’2” even at his lowest whereas harden looks a morning height. He isn’t more than 1-1.5 over Russ. I’d put harden 191.5 max and he is taller than Wade as is Bradley Beal. Although Beal I can see being that height 6’3.25 or maybe a hair more as he was said to have grown and looks like it. A friend of mine is 6’3” and has met Wall and Beal being a season ticket holder. He says wall didn’t even look 6’2” but that Beal looked a bit taller maybe 1/2” or so tops.

I do believe Lebron is at worst about 200cm at his worst tho
Canson said on 10/Oct/17
@Anonymous: I do agree wade plays taller than his height. However that doesn’t seem like a morning height for him because I’ve met Melo and Melo was almost exactly if not exactly as listed. Ive also met and played against Keith bogans and he too is 6’4-6’4.25. He is my height or a hair shorter tops. I bring those two up because they were in the same class as him. Bogans is noticeably taller than wade. I’ve also met TJ Ford and Kirk Hinrich. Ford looked 5’10” more than 5’11 maybe he was 5’10 and change while Kirk looked 6’2” range. I’d put wade max 6’2.75 maybe that 6’3.75 is a shoe height is how it looks to me
Canson said on 9/Oct/17
@Anonymous: he looks much shorter with Lebron. Most who have met him put him max 6’3. He also looks shorter with Carmelo or Kobe both of those guys 6’6.25 and 6’4.75
Anonymous said on 9/Oct/17
@Canaon, ok I can agree and have seen that the sports physicals take place almost first thing in the morning, so D Wade’s 6’3.75” is probably his peak; but if you played ball to you know Wade’s freakish reach makes him play bigger than his height.
Just to see the results I measured myself twice; once in the morning after a solid 9 hours of sleep, and again at night after a day that included 3 workouts( including a weight training workout that with back squats and cleans, definitely putting some strain on the spine). I dropped a full inch from 6’4.75” to 6’3.75”. Remember these NBA are putting their bodies through some serious stress year round now.
All that said I still believe Lebron could have easily grown to a full 6’8” after being measured at 18 years old. When he got into it with KD during the Finals, talking trash face to face, he barely gave up any height; and in person from the stands he looked just as tall, if not taller, than Kevin Love.
Anonymous said on 8/Oct/17
@Antonio, Wade was MEASURED at the NBA Combine at 6’3.75” at age 21, yet he still does not have this site convinced. I agree he can look shorter in photos, but that is probably just posture and strange body proportions( like his aforementioned short neck which gives him a crazy standing reach for a player his height)

@Anonymous: I too played ball and was measured 6’4.5 in college and 6’4.75 in the morning. I am actually 6’4.25-3/8 in the afternoon evening so that half was rounded up. Most of what you said here is speculation saying Lebron grew and Jefferson etc. looking at pics Lebron is not 6’8” he isn’t as tall as boozer or love or Thompson and the only way that will work is to say all three grew which they didn’t. Looking at Jefferson with Lebron or with carter he is not 6’7” and carter is not 6’5.5. KROC a poster here is 6’5 himself and met carter and said he’s 6’5” max maybe 6’4.75 and another guy who is 6’4.5 said they were eye level. Carter is no taller than Kobe in pics and not even an inch taller than Kobe. Best case is 6’5” flat for him. As for Jefferson he is at least two inches shorter than Kmart who doesn’t even look 6’8.75 he is noticeably shorter than NeNe is who measured 6’9.25. RJ max is 6’6.5.

I also want to add I shot up from 5’10” my freshman year to 6’3.75” my sophmore year. For three years I always measured 6’3.75” for my sports physical sophmore through senior year, age 16-18 basically. I grew the .75”-1” IN COLLEGE, after not growing for 3 years, after the turning 18.

Trust me, I played D-1 basketball, I was measured numerous times always between 6’4.75”—6’4.5” barefoot. I have played against guys that have made it to the League and in summer leagues with guys that were currently in the NBA at the time. I listed myself at 6’5”, but I was usually the same height as all the guys listed at 6’6”. Yes, most ball players at the D-1 to NBA level list their height in shoes(although it seems the Euros do this less) and round up, gaining 1”-1.5” over their “real height”.
Richard Jefferson is a legit barefoot 6’7”, he jokes around a lot and has a dry since of humor that goes over some people’s head. He said Vince Carter 6’4.5” to make all his crazy dunks that much more amazing, they way people say Charles Barkley was only 6’3” to make his rebounding stats more impressive. VC measured 6’5.5” barefoot and was listed at 6’7” early in his career, before splitting the difference and listing himself at 6’6” later in his career. VC’s EXTREMELY long arms and huge hands also make him play bigger than his actual height.
Scouts always say it is not your actual height that matters. It is the height to you shoulders, your wingspan and your standing reach. Having a long neck does nothing for you. Dwyane Wade is a great shot blocker for a guard at 6’3.75” because of his 6’10.75” wingspan and 8’6” standing reach. Nick Young is taller, with a longer wingspan, yet still has a shorter standing reach than Wade. Demarcus Cousins is “only” 6’9.5”, but with his 7’ 5.75” wingspan and no neck he has a standing reach better than most legit 6’11”+ players in the league.
I got off topic here, but Lebron was only 18 when he was measured and men, especially tall men, can continue to grow until they are about 20-21. There were rumors around the 2012 Olympics that Lebron was 6’9” 275 lbs.; with shoes on when being measured and weighed I totally believe that. I believe Lebron has grown to legit 6’8” barefoot or maybe a hair shorter.
Sean said on 4/Oct/17
Rob, in your opinion who is taller: Peak Undertaker or Lebron? I think they would measure pretty close.
Editor Rob: they may well turn out to be similar height peak.
Canson said on 30/Sep/17
Lebron was 18 when he came in the league. As far as KMart goes he didn't grow. He looks at very most his drafted height and can even look 6'8" to tell you the truth. He even refers to himself as a small forward here in this podcast with Chris broussard. Next to Nene (6'9.25) he doesn't look as tall from what I've seen. Nowhere does Kenyan say he grew anywhere on the internet. 21 year olds don't typically grow and most men 18+ don't typically

No way Jefferson is 6'7.25. He's at least 2" shorter than Kmart. I'd say 6'6.5 max. He has called Vince carter 6'4.5 (6'5 on a good day before) that would make him almost 3" over carter when he isn't it's about 2" max

@Anonymous: Lebron is not 6'8". I have seen RJ claim 6'6" before as well and he also said Vince Carter was 6'4.5 (6'5 on a good day). That doesn't add up if he's 6'7". I have met carmelo Anthony next to Lebron makes him 6'7". Melo is no more than his listed 6'6.25 No less than 6'6". Had 1.5-2" on me. I also saw where cam newton who is around 6'5 say Lebron is 6'7"
Anonymous said on 18/Sep/17
NBA veteran Richard Jefferson was recently a guest on popular sports podcast. Jefferson is legitimately 6'7" and one of the few players in the NBA that lists his barefoot height. He stated during the interview that when he played with Lebron on the 2004 Olympic team they were the same height, but he was surprised that when he joined the Cavs in 2015 Lebron was now visibly taller. I can see Lebron being a legit 6'8" now as the 6'7.25" measurement was when he was 18, and it is not uncommon for men to keep growing after that age.
Canson said on 1/Sep/17
@Shane: I concur with your assessment there spot on. However I've never gotten why that practice takes place. The taller one gets unless maybe a pro or college or prospective athlete it really doesn't have much positive benefit if any. In my case I could do that and easily say I'm 6'6" since I'm a legit 6'5" barefoot first thing out of bed but no benefit that claiming 6'4 doesn't already get me.
Canson said on 24/Aug/17
@Junior: agreed! I didn't consider Osman but you are absolutely right he could as well. Stephen merchant is a candidate but I can see him a bit under as well at times. Now Undertaker I believe was a strong 6'7" peak but 199cm today. Tyler Mane is also close enough to a legit 6'7".

As for Pippen totally agree he is around 200 at his lowest most of the time. Looks maybe a cm taller than Rodman is who I'd put as a solid 199 max at his lowest. Jordan looks closer to 6'4.5 based on most things I've seen. He was measured at that when he was drafted in 84 and looks that height if you compare with a guy like Kobe he isn't any taller and can even look shorter most of the time. I'd say 6'4.5 for him and leave Kobe 6'4.75. Kobe passes for 6'5 if he's in a sneaker or dress shoe as he would be 6'6" in them and 1/4" isn't much difference
Junior said on 24/Aug/17
@Canson

I agree. For me i think Lebron, Magic Johnson and the british host Richard Osman more of a legit 6'7, Scottie Pippen maybe a wee bit lower like 6'6.75" when standing next to 6'4.85 Michael Jordan. At times Pippen could also look legit 6'7.
Canson said on 23/Aug/17
There are very few legit 6'7" on this site. I can see Lebron actually dipping under to maybe 6'6.75 (200cm) and he is among the most legit here along with Magic

@Shane

Very true! My older brother was a legit 6'7-6'7.25" and he often get guess up to 6'9 tall. One point to add. Most probably most 6'7 claim actor may not be a full 6'7 in this site.

Shane said on 21/Aug/17
6'7" barefoot mid to late day is huge ! Most will see a person that tall in the 6'9" range if not 6'10". It's pretty rare to see a legit 6'7" barefoot guy. A guy 6'7" in shoes early in day -- 6'5" barefoot in afternoon/evening is a different thing. These people look really tall but not beyond the normal range tall. So many in America either exaggerate their height, measure in shoes or don't know how to measure accurately or just guess that most people don't really know how amazingly tall a real 6'7" actually is !
Canson said on 19/Aug/17
@Arch: yet people don't realize that when they exaggerate or inflate heights especially for guys that range 6'3+ where most of them typically know how that would feel and like Jessman said too the other stuff that comes along with it. But most shorter guys even some taller ones want to be or "feel" taller and think that telling someone they are 6'7" when they aren't really is doing them some form of justice

@Christian: yes. And as you also have seen me post my taller friends say the same thing one of which is 6'7" himself and he's usually taller than S.J.H is as when he's measured I've only see him dip below 6'7" maybe once 6'6 7/8. Normally he can be 6'7-6'7 1/8 some days and on "sufficient sleep" 6+ hours he is 6'7 7/8 on out of bed. Oddly doesn't lose any more than you or I do maybe because of his build or the muscle he has as he is jacked!

6'7" as the ideal male height? That's an interesting take. I know Stephen Merchant who is listed at 6'7" said it was 6'4".

6'7 is far from ideal. Add footwear and doorways become a problem. Leg space in cars,buses, planes, and trains is an issue. Clothes are more difficult to get. Even head space in a car is awkward. Discussing heights of celebs is enjoyable for many, especially the challenge of disproving some height claims, eg Arnie, Harry Styles, Clint.

6'7" isn't an ideal height for anywhere in the world, not even in Netherlands. Most guys would much rather be 6'3" than 6'7"
Colin said on 17/Aug/17
6'7 is the perfect height for a male in my opinion. In the daily life women always want more and more some say 6'3, some say 6'5 but 6'7 is the limit of being freakishly tall and 6'7 doesn't look awkvardy gigantic. 6'7 looks in very tall range on many countries but in netherlands and northern europe, it is tall and ideal. In today's world you can't judge by country to country about what height is tall according to the average of one specific country because everything is global now. Also an ideal height for a small forward/shooting guard position in basketball. He can also play in every position except as center. He has a powerful body build with 6'7 height like a tank, no one can stop him when he goes to the dunk or on fastbreaks. Also whether he is in between 2,00 - 2,02 cm, it doesn't really matter on the view of his appearence. I mean no one can realize whether he is 6'7 or 6'8. 2 cm difference doesn't change anything on apperance of a guy in my opinion. You'll look the same and there is no reason to discuss such a topic. its totally waste of time.

Sorry he was "supposedly" measured. There is debate as he also said he hasn't been measured since surpassing "Jordan's" 6'6 (of course that is also a shoe height). I did see an article where Harrison Barnes said he himself is 6'8" in sneaks and was "way taller" than Jordan (which implies it's at least a couple inches if not slightly more). Nonetheless while Lebron's barefoot height is the topic of debate in this page I don't argue that he is for sure 6'8" in sneaks. Even if he dips to 6'6.75 or a hair lower in the afternoon or evening he is still gonna be that with a sneaker that adds over an inch. People who I know have met him have also said he's his listed height in sneaks 6'8" and is huge in person

So Chris when You say Lebron is really that height because he measured it but say Durant isn't his height because Oden is only 1/2" taller why do you inflate one just to keep the other where he is? Durant measures 6'9". But there is always an excuse to make someone taller. Same with Embiid

@Keis: yes KD or DJ probably clear 6'10" out of bed. DJ is clearly taller than him even accounting for the fro. If you look at the other pic with the entire team on the playground He is too. A bunt there is that DJ is not only taller but also standing behind him in line now they are independent of each other because someone can just select but DJ is still taller

None of the pics you posted below are any good for determining height. They all favor KD as you posted some where he's in front of DJ and we are looking from front to back. Unless DJ were maybe 3-4" taller than KD you couldn't tell any diff

@J-Dog: thank you and Likewise! You also have made some very very good points! Durant yea I think and can believe he either grew or maybe he measured over the mark and didn't want to be any taller so he can remain at 6'9". He definitely looks a fraction over. Lebron can look 2" or so " shorter most of the time at 6'7".
J-Dog said on 29/Jun/17
@Canson - Great point regarding Durant's quote. I agree with after reviewing and think he is properly listed he ~6'9 - 6'9.5"

He edges carmelo by around an Inch, I can't see how they are listed at the same height b6 the NBA.

Not sure but you make a good point Ebrahim. I don't think it's quite a full inch but what you said "around" is very adequate. Ive met Carmelo more than once. In high school he was 6'5 then as an adult I met him last year and he's as listed. Worst case hes a hair over 6'6 still even if that was earlier in the day. My wife and a couple other relatives around us and another guest said he's 1.5-2" taller than me (I'm 194cm- 6'4 3/8). I wonder how LeBron only got .75 for his shoe. Wonder if what they said about him not really being measured is true. But he is still around 6'7 even if he didn't.
Canson said on 27/Jun/17
@SJH: I'm 225 and he looks a lot bigger than me and I have a good amount of muscle too. but I'm not as thick mostly lean muscle. I can see him as 240s today maybe 240-245 and when in Miami 255-260. I say that because I'm 2-3" shorter than him too.
S.J.H said on 27/Jun/17
Lebron for sure under 6'7 lowest and over 6'7 out of bed. I have suspect lebron was never 250 pounds maybe 245 highest and from 2015-2016 season he don't look over 235 to me. Not surprise if he was few pounds under 235 now
Canson said on 26/Jun/17
@Shane:I actually think he's prob close to 6'8" out of bed. Only because a lot that have met him here on the site along with people I know who have seen him (a scout) says he's really about 6'7" barefoot. The scout only because he himself coached me at one point and was 6'2" himself (although he did claim 6'3" in shoes before too lol). Have to disagree on the morning height of course 😅😅. But if that's your preferred measurement it's fair if you want to claim it.

Whatever height he is out of bed is what height he is. That's a person's full height before compression. That's why the NBA measures wisely in the morning. I'm guessing James is 6'7" 1/4 to 1/2 without shoes early in day.

I have just seen James looking like the whopping great giant he is on the Ellen DeGeneres show!
She had him play a game; when doesn't she? The object of the game was to throw little balls into some fairly reasonable sized buckets - but on a moving target! If one missed, the other had to take a shot of vodka! They ended up something like 50/50! You should have seen the basketball player's face when he tasted the beverage! You could tell he doesn't have time in his busy day for tasting alcohol normally!
He looked huge next to Ellen! He could easily have passed for 6ft8, so I will compromise and say 6ft7.5

@J-Dog: I see where you're coming from. I'd believe he is taller had I not seen him with deandre Jordan. Jordan is a margin taller than him in the pic below. I believe 6'9.5 prob tho not much less or may be same height poss. The 6'10.75 prob shoes which makes him the 6'11 he claims and everyone else claims he is
J-Dog said on 14/Jun/17
@ jtm - I believe Duran is taller than he is currently listed here. But I believe that LeBron James never goes lower than 200cm, I trend to more believe he never goes below 201cm even at late evening+

"Since I love you guys so much, I was recorded at 6'10" and three-quarters with no shoes, so with my shoes on I'm 7-feet," Durant finally revealed.

So, why has Durant been listed at 6-foot-9 for so long? "I just like messin' with people. They just ask me so much... yeah, I just like messin' with people."

Durant actually looks 6'9.25 like Rob had him listed in the pic that Warren posted with DJ. DJ is 1/4-1/2" taller than DJ is so KD is 206-207 which makes him almost 6'11 in sneakers 6'10 3/4. Other possibility is DJ is 6'9.5 and KD 6'9" but that's for another day since most are allergic to downgrading even tho people lie down stretch etc. either way If KD is 6'9 and change Lebron comes out around the 200 or at absolute most a full 6'7" at his lowest as KD is about 6 or 7 cm taller than he is (somewhere between).

He was considerably shorter than Durant in game 5.

lebron will most likely to be 204 cm nowadays. If his posture was right he is no shorter than Kevin love(at least the shoulder height).he was measured at 201.3cm at 18,by all means he will grow by 1 inch from then
Canson said on 10/Jun/17
a solid 6'7" most of the day and 200cm at his lowest
J-Dog said on 10/Jun/17
LeBron James is a very, very strong 6'7" I don't even think he goes below 201cm at evening/night.

Look at him recently face to face with Kevin Durant during Game 4 yesterday. There didn't even appear to be more than 1 inch difference.

LeBron has great skeletal structure as well as posture.

@ shiva182cms - Great deduction I agree. LeBron James morning height is no less than 6'8.25" out of bed likely.
Canson said on 8/Jun/17
I could only see under 200 on days when he plays and is in almost all game which is maybe 199.5 or so no lower

I would guess he is 203cm out of bed and 200-201cm before bed, depending on how active his day has been :) I can't imagine him droppin below 200cm ever!
Canson said on 7/Jun/17
Out of bed he's his near listed NBA height (202/203cm)
Before bed 200 flat

Near enough 6'7" not to split hairs
Spencer said on 6/Jun/17
6'7.5 or 6'7.75
Bard said on 5/Jun/17
Yeah definitely a solid 2 meters. Sad his time is letting him down, but he probably doesn't even mind that much at this point.
Canson said on 4/Jun/17
Odd thing is that he can at times appear much much taller than Draymond Green. Other times it's closer but I guess I easily believe that Green is just 6'5" like Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry have both said.
Canson said on 3/Jun/17
He doesn't ever look a full inch taller than Carmelo Anthony which is why I believe his saying that he wasn't measured after he surpassed 6'6" and don't believe he was measured for the draft unless it was at a different time than Melo was. Melo is 198.5-199 he's not more 200 at his low maybe a full 6'7" at most
Canson said on 3/Jun/17
@Rob: I think Russell will still measure around 204 or so. He doesn't look that much smaller than he was in his playing days maybe 6'9.5 then and today maybe 6'8.5-6'9 if his posture played the right way
mrtguy said on 31/May/17
Rob, about Bill Russell do you think he's 6'7'' range today, he looked taller than Lebron not much years ago, but at 83 there is a big possibility??
Editor Rob: could still be 6ft 8 if measured
Canson said on 30/May/17
He's a guy who is near 6'8" when waking up (no less than maybe 6'7.5) and still decent 200 at night
Spencer said on 21/May/17
6'7.5
Canson said on 27/Apr/17
Looks 200 range (about 6'7" next to Kevin love or Cam Newton
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
Agree with DD. 200 at night but close enough to look and claim 6'7" after all Cam Newton himself is "about" 6'5 and called Lebron 6'7"
dd said on 23/Apr/17
Flat 200cm(200.1~200.3cm) or close to 200cm(199.6~199.8cm) during the evening.

I'm 200% sure about this.
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@Retard: he measured 6'5.5 in the morning so doubt derozan is 6'6" more like 6'5.25 or 6'5.5 if he grew which is 296.8-.9. Yes if Lebron is 1.5-2" on him he's 6'7"
RETARD said on 16/Apr/17
Demar Derozan was measured w/o shoes at 197 cm 19 yo. He is 197.5/198 I guess. Even comparing him to kobe you will see this. See the height difference with lebron. 1.75/2 inchs. If you think less than 1.5 yousa dumbass
Canson said on 14/Apr/17
@Shiva: while I've never met Lebron in person I have met melo. He's 198 range. I stood next to him at a Restaurant and my wife and other people around and with us said he's 1.5-2" (4-5cm) taller than me. I saw the same. So likely more like 1.75 ish. I am 193.9cm at my lowest for what it's worth. He's for sure a full 6'6" maybe as high as 6'6.25 but likely somewhere in between 6'6 1/8 maybe lowest. His pre draft is 6'6.25 so close enough but remember most are taken earlier in the day and if he measured 198.3 which is like 6'6.05-.10 they'd automatically give him the 1/4 because they round up (that I know for sure as there are no 1/8" increments). They also do throw a .75" on some people but not these two guys. But for what it's worth I do agree with you Lebron is 2cm or at worst 1/2" taller than melo is. My opinion is he is more like 200 at his lowest which is falling only 1/4" maybe even within that below 6-7. So for all intents in purposes he is 6'7" whether it's weak 6'7" strong or solid. Problem with this site is people see a specific person and because they are Michael Jordan or Lebron etc they're automatically 6'6" and 6'8" respectively when those are only listed heights for them. Jordan is 6'4.5 Lebron 6'7"

Interesting side note: a lot of the basketball camps by Nike etc and even USA Basketball have started doing only in-shoe measurements. I can see and agree with doing both, but if you only measure with shoes a guy could easily find a way to look like they have a 1 to 1.5 inch sneaker on and have lifts or insoles to the point of gaining 3 inches or whatever. You really need to do a barefoot measurement if measuring in shoes to ensure the measurements are reasonable.

@canson carmelo looks 199cms, 2cms below LeBron
Canson said on 13/Apr/17
@johnson: they definitely can at 17-18 and 18-19 is possible too. Jason maxiell grew. I played against him and he didn't look noticeably than me at 19 (maybe half inch) but today is like 6'5.5. But next to Loce or boozer Lebron is smaller than both
Johnson said on 12/Apr/17
I know many people who grew up since 17-18 years old
Canson said on 12/Apr/17
@Rob: how much taller would you say he is than Carmelo Anthony? Melo is 6'6-6'6.25 tops
Canson said on 11/Apr/17
@Chris: well if you have followed Rob's threads long enough you would know that heights vary throughout the day so it is very possible Lebron can measure below 6'7.25. Especially given that basketball heights are usually taken in the morning and given the fact that Lebron himself has said he was never measured after surpassing 6'6". Even if he really did measure 6'7.25 he could easily be 6'6.75 at his low (afternoon/evening) which Rob considers your true height or closer to it
Editor Rob: no basketball player will be measured at their low, unless they had an all nighter the day before the combine...and since they do the measurements reasonably early, I think many will still drop another fraction or more.

Saying that, always a chance some 18-19 gained a bit more, Lebron really looks a big 6ft 7-7.5 ranger.
