@Junior: well he is listed at 6’5” after the “official” measurements this year which were also in the morning. So likely he was around the same as when he was drafted. Most were. I don’t buy these guys growing. Many were likely just kept at the barefoot listing if the player asked for it and some to save the face for the league as the measurement are all f’d up. And keep in mind when the NBA measures its to the 1/4” not the 1/8” so 6’4 5/8 would be rounded up. I could see him being my height or within 1/16 maybe either direction. Taller or shorter. I measure 194.8 after an hour and some days 194.7 so I’d get 6’4.75 too even tho I come down to around 6’4.25. I’m not sure if it’s me being almost 38 if my morning height has gone down. I tried recently a couple days and the norm is 195.7 but some days it’s exactly 6’5 195.6 now. I got 195.8-.9 years ago when I started here. And the sleep portion look below at the 2009. Danny Green Ty Lawson Wayne Ellington all were 1/2 or 3/4 lower so it wasn’t sleep it was the timing. If they are testing for their future they got ample enough to be able to do the drills. I have measured on 6 hours sleep and I still get the same result out of bed as I would on 8. If I get 10 maybe I’ll get 1/8” higher or so but 6-8 won’t make that much difference maybe 1/16 at absolute best. Face it the players get favored measuring early morning. Fair? I’d say so because when it’s close to valid it’s legit but you at 6’5 5/8-6’5 3/4 if you use your actual height for reference against someone with a supposed 6’4 3/4” you would expect at most a solid 1” difference. But then if you and I met up you would end up edging me by close to 1.5”. If we determined without measuring and were bit barefoot we would likely call it 1.5 since it would exceed 1” by a good amount and be closer to 1.5 than 1. That’s how they would end up and it’s assumed they inflate but it’s not. It’s timing. So that’s my philosophy. I never consider what I measure an hour after waking just what I am after I stop losing height prior to “true” compression which in my vocabulary is going below the normal low. In true words heading toward the extreme low which is anything far below my normal low. Discounting maybe a mm here and there since it can vary day to day. That said MCW may be my height up to 194 max. If we had a solid CM to go on or a solid 1/8 it’d be trustworthy. Usually it’s 1/2 for someone who loses slower like Christian 1/4” after one hour or 3/8” like me after one hour. I’ve never heard anyone lose more after an hour other than those who lift heavy immediately upon waking to work out. That’s it.

@Canson We don't know how much of sleep MCW gets or exact time of waking up and step in for the measurement. All i could say is 6'4 3/4 is what he exactly measure out and 6'4 1/4 worst low is what you estimate him but there could be higher chance he isn't under 6'4 3/8(194).
Canson said on 11/Oct/19
@Junior: they measure around 630 or 7 in the AM at the combine. I’ve seen the tweets. It’s not long after waking. Blake Griffin wasn’t long after either. MCW if he was a full 194.9 assuming not 5/8 then may dip to 6’4.25 worst case. Bo maybe Christian’s height but I doubt any higher. At times he still looks just a strong 6’5” vs weak 6’6”
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Oct/19
Much possible he is 194cm a low and Bo Burnham 197cm. Measure at 7-8am in the morning at 194.9cm which mean he could lost an average 3/8 inch down to 194cm before bed or the worst 6'4 1/4 (193.7) but he didn't look below 194cm so 6'4 3/8 low for him.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Jul/19
For Michael i could only go as high as 6'4 1/2 looking at him with his 6'5 1/2 not less peers Bo Burnham.

@Junior: Wade is actually closer to the camera than Haslem and has Better posture. Wade next to Justice Winslow who measured 6’4.5 (meaning 6’4 at a low) looks physically taller than Wade. The 1st pic you can see that Winslow’s shoulders are much higher
Canson said on 23/Feb/19
I guarantee you that Haslem is more than 3” taller than Wade. Lebron Wade and Haslem were all drafted same class yet Lebron looks 4”+ taller than Wade at times

Udonis Haslem had Wade by 3" here
: Udonis Haslem had still edge Wade by 3". It may look 3.25-3.5" here because Haslem is closer to camera.
Udonis Haslem pre-draft measurement 6'6 3/4 so is probably holding close to 6'6 1/2 that will make Wade about 6'3 1/2.
Canson said on 3/Feb/19
@Dream: haslem has a 6’6.75 pre draft. I would say a solid 199cm worst case. Or could be 6’6.5 but really that’s more how he looks
said on 31/Jan/19
@Canson I think Haslem is probably around 6'6" range at least.
Haslem makes Dwyane look 6'1" at best. -- Click Here
At that same time, if we look at the picture of Bo Burnham and Michael, I have to wonder if Bo could actually be 6'5.375" or a stronger 6'5.25" than he's listed. Weirdly, looks the same as Haslem, if we're going by eye-level and comparison. Though I think Haslem may edge out Bo, but still. Bo shouldn't look that tall, but he looks that tall at times.
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
@Dream: I agree two maybe 2.25”. Haslem has worse posture than him
Canson said on 21/Oct/18
@Dream: I’ve always wondered how tall Haslem is. He came out in 03 just like Melo Wade Bosh and Lebron. I assumed that 03 was an afternoon measurement based on how Melo and Bogans look in person but maybe some laid down before. Haslem measured 6’6.75 but maybe it’s a morning height. I would peg him around 6’6.5 to be honest and MCW could be around my height. Funny that Udonis was listed 6’9” when he came in the league
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Oct/18
Actually, he looks only 2 inches shorter than Udonis Haslem, but no more than that.
said on 6/Oct/18
He actually doesn't look anywhere close to 2 inches shorter than Udonis Haslem.
More like 1.25 inches, but i'm discouting Udonis Haslem's thick hair.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Aug/18
Prob 194cm before bed.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 18/Aug/18
@Canson Personally, I wouldn't put Kobe under 6'4 3/4". He edged out Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley.
I'd say 6'4.875" or even a full 6'5" is more than arguable for Bryant. However, the latter would be more a mid afternoon height, but he's certainly entitled to claim 6'5" more than the other two!
Canson said on 18/Aug/18
@Dream: I agree with you wholeheartedly on the comparison between Kobe and MCW and MCW with Burnham. Makes sense tho because Kobe is likely 6’4 5/8 to 3/4 worst case
said on 16/Aug/18
@Chase the reason why MCW was listed is because I brought up a comparison: Bo Burnham and Kobe Bryant both had pictures of them with Michael Carter Williams. Bo did 'look' taller than Kobe Bryant when comparing them with Michael Carter Williams. Some may disagree with me, which is more than understandable.
(Bo Burnham with Michael Carter Williams)
(Kobe Bryant with Michael Carter Williams)
Bo and Kobe are loosing a bit of posture, but Bo looks taller than Kobe. Again, some may disagree. @Rob @Canson @Christian and even @Junior may disagree with me a lot, and that's perfectly fine.
Canson said on 24/Jun/18
He’s not as tall as Kobe 6’4.25-3/8 max
Canson said on 14/Jun/18
@Junior: probably my height. Maybe 6’4.25 maybe 3/8. If a guy is slightly over 6’4.5 they may get the Benny and be given 6’4.75 since no 1/8”. That said he could be as low as 6’4 1/8-1/4 but likely I would say 6’4 1/4-3/8. His 6’4.75 was likely an hour out of bed like most NBA measurements are
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Jun/18
I bet this guy is only 6'4 1/2 really not up to Kobe's height.
Canson said on 11/Jun/18
@Rob: what I meant was I thought his official measurement around that time was 6’4.5. That’s because I didn’t have my facts straight. I agree if he’s 6’4.75, he’s likely 6’4 1/4 or 3/8 or 1/4-3/8 at a low. NBA is early morning measurements too
said on 10/Jun/18
Rob, he holds very well with Big Show. MCW has a camera disadvantage.
Your sources are much better than my research!
He holds up surprisingly well in that photo...because there is a noticeable advantage to Big Show. Of Course Show at times isn't looking over 6ft 10...
Dream(5'9.5") said on 10/Jun/18
It's interesting how he looks the same or slightly taller than Kobe Bryant in that one photo.
Although, I'm not going to argue too much. I can't find the picture anymore, but MCW does hold very well with 'Big Show' in another picture I stumbled upon. He was even further away from the camera.
Rob, great find for a much better source!
said on 9/Jun/18
I thought he was 6’4.5 barefoot when he measured. If this is the case he would be 6’4.25 at a low or at best 6’4 3/8. Likely he’s “about my height”
On Draft Express they mentioned Click Here
around that time he was 6ft 4.75 without shoes.
I suppose depending on time of day 6ft 4.5 might be possible.
Chase said on 9/Jun/18
This guy was a bust lol. His hands were just too small to be a successful ball handler. Not sure why he was listed, but this seems pretty accurate as far as height.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 9/Jun/18
MCW was shorter than Bo Burnham, but MCW and Kobe Bryant had only one 'weird' picture, and they looked the same. (The eye levels are deceiving! I need to find other photos of them!)
I don't know how MCW managed to look taller than Kobe Bryant, (going by their eye level.)
Side note: I've seen some of his games, and he's actually pretty good! I hope to see more of him in the game.
