How tall is Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan's Height

6ft 5 (195.6 cm)

American Basketball Legend. At age 18 he was being described as 6ft 4, and in the NBA regularly called 6ft 6, a height he himself claimed in 1994 "I'm 6-foot-6". Pat Riley was once quoted saying "Did you know that when Jordan was measured he was only 6-4 and a half, not 6-6 the way he's listed".

He measured 6’4 1/2 and 6’4 7/8 (that may be a morning height) in his prime so I doubt he was ever 6’5 flat. Even if he grew it would’ve been something like 6’4 2/3 max afternoon height in his prime. Looked over 4” shorter than Larry Bird and close to 3” shorter than Magic

Rob maybe closer to 6ft4 1⁄2 today?
Editor Rob
Possibly at an age which he could have lost 1/4, but I think still looks closer to 6ft 5 than 4 in recent years.

@Canson would you agree MJ has a larger frame than Kobe? We know he had larger hands and I believe a larger wingspan too. His frame seemed fuller than Kobe's as well, when you compared them to their younger years before they got into weight training.

From the height of their head it's very close but I'd give the slight edge to MJ there as well.

I agree Duhon. MJ definitely had the larger frame especially in his later days when he played for the Wizards and even when he played in Chicago. Phil mentioned that once I remember that Jordan had a bigger body. But I have Kobe as slightly taller. It’s not much though. Maybe a small fraction. Especially seeing the video to that picture. But I will say that Kobe could’ve been 195-195.5 possibly and Jordan 194/195 range. So could be something like 6’4 5/8 vs 6’4 7/8 or 6’4.5 vs 6’4.75

How did a trivial discussion about the height of Michael Jordan end up in a political argument.

@Viper: No, as a matter of fact i don’t like, nor do I support Alex Jones and other conspiracy theorists like him. I’m personally very close ideologically to the establishment Republicans like Bush, Cruz and Rubio. I support Israel, legal immigration, internationalism and foreign intervention when needed in order to insure U.S national security and strategic interests. There’s a big difference between the conservative/neoconservative wing within the Republican Party and right-wing populism or the so called alt-right.

Calling anybody something derogatory won’t get you anywhere, you’ve already lost the argument – which happens to be about height – by turning to pejoratives and ad-hominem arguments; It seem to be working out great for you however, so by all means do continue along your puerile, but non the less effective path. It’s very cute and all to see you so worked up and blushed, but please stop stalking me like some crazy ex-girlfriend on every CH page will you? I’m here to discuss height, not argue with you about non-height related subjects

P.S – You didn’t address a single height-related criticism.

I will say Jordan looks taller in a baseball uniform to me than Giancarlo Stanton who may be 6-4.5

Though Jordan is lankier

@Viper: He’s a disgrace to this website. Lol he calls me a leftist because he supports Trump and because he doesn’t like me as a poster. I estimate below Rob Often and I call him on his bullsh*t about the things he says and his behavior. Most people here simply ignore him. He thinks a person who estimates below Rob is liberal and a person who estimates above is conservative when in reality it would be the opposite.

Let’s keep it to the discussion, It’s tiresome to read your constant deviations and name-calling tactics as soon as someone argues with you. Learn how to engage in a factually based conversion with opposing viewpoints without getting emotional for once.

It really doesn’t matter that other individuals have pinned down Jordan below 6ft5, that’s not something that can be taken at face value. We should always judge someone’s height based on measurements and/or height-comparisons. Jordan himself claimed 6ft6 by the way, why doesn’t your logic apply to his claim?

No one with any knowledge about intelligence would argue that there’s any connection between someone’s mental capacity and knowing whether or not NBA-players are measured with or without shoes, you are talking above your head once again...

Gary Payton was supposedly measured 6'2.75 and I would bet that was closer to his morning height.

Yes. Payton is nowhere near 6’4. Payton is shorter than Wade at times and Wade is no more than 6’3”. I don’t believe 6’3.25 for an afternoon height for him when someone I know has met him and said that he didn’t even look a full inch taller than him at 6’2”. You can’t take what Willes is saying seriously. For someone who attacks people when they disagree with him, and says that he’s smarter and had a higher IQ than they do, he sure as hell doesn’t show it when he uses a basketball player’s listed height. Even with Jordan, I could respect someone saying 6’4.75” because he measured 6’4 1/2 and 6’4 7/8 but clearly not “at least 6’5.25”. But this is someone who inflates almost every celeb he comments on and he calls those who estimate below Rob “lefty liberals” like he did me. Again, not reflective of a person with a high IQ as someone who estimates below Rob would be estimating conservatively
Canson said on 17/Jul/20
Willes190 said on 14/Jul/20

Proof? Also can you link me pics of Jordan looking below 6ft5?

Look at the top of the page where Pat Riley said Jordan was 6’4.5” in addition he measured 6’4 7/8”. Where is your proof that he is 6’5.25? Or that Payton is 6’4? That’s Payton’s shoe height and as for Dr.J everyone knows that about him. You arrive at those estimates by inflating everyone. Maybe you aren’t aware (surprising being you boast about your IQ to everyone who listens) that NBA players are listed in shoes. They didn’t start measuring barefoot (or so they say) until 2019. Even then not all of them are believeable as Lebron is not 6’8.5”. Hes 6’7”. Jordan has always been a weak 6’5 guy at best. It’s funny that your entire tenure here you admonish or criticize people who estimate below Rob even once criticizing Rob and calling him a downgrader. Yet you take anyone who estimates at or above Rob and think they are always correct? And you called me a lefty liberal 😂? That is about as as asanine and as retarded as you get

Canson said on 30/Jun/20
He really needs to be downgraded 1/8” minimum being that (6’4 7/8) is the measurement of record although 6’4.5 is also believable. Rob was not listing celebs at 1/8” increments when he first listed Jordan back some 10 or 15 years ago
Canson said on 27/Jun/20
@Fried Chicken: I don’t think it was at the olympics. That was supposedly at UNC when he measured that. But yes 6’4 7/8 would be a better listing for him than 6’5” flat because he has that measurement on record (along with 6’4.5) but doesn’t have a 6’5 measurement anywhere to be found
FriedChicken said on 26/Jun/20
If he was meaaured 6'4.88 at the olympics age 29 wouldn't that be 6'4 7/8 or is it closer to a full 6'5 rounded up?

He's 194,5 or 195,5 cm at most, he never was a legit 196 cm.

@Viper: it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s a morning measurement for Pippen at say 6’7.1. Carter got the 6’6.75 in the morning too

@Christian: I wonder sometimes who’s taller or who was taller between the two meaning Barkley and Jordan
viper said on 25/May/20
Maryland's Robert Carter looked extremely similar to Pippen physically on the court and he measured 6-6.75

That 6-7.5 Pippen measurement I think was 6-7.25 rounded up
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/May/20
Maybe, but I can't see Jordan being any taller than him. I could see Kobe (RIP) edging both of them out though.

@Canson, I posted a comment in March and I just noticed your reply.

I give Jordan so little mainly due to his college measurements. When he still had hair in his younger days he looked to be a strong 6' 4.5", not small by any means, but also not very big on a basketball court.

I think you are about dead-on in your guesses for Rodman and Pippen. I would give a prime Pippen a little more than you, I think he may have brushed the 6' 7" mark but 6' 6 7/8" is also a real possibility. Rodman also wouldn't be caught dead without tall heeled shoes, so he's a bit of a wildcard.

I remember after the first or second Night of the Documentary, UNC head coach Roy Williams who was an assistant there at the time Jordan was there said he was 6’4.5 his freshman year and 6’6” now. Now I take that to be that Jordan either grew and was 6’5.5-6’6 range in his shoes yielding 6’4.5-.75 barefoot or even the 6’4 7/8 he got; or that Williams is exaggerating. I can tell he’s definitely not 6’6” especially when Reggie Miller has claimed to be under 6’6” before himself and he has said that Jordan is 6’4/6’5 range. In pics Jordan is at least an inch shorter than him

I'm 6'0 with a size 14 in most shoes. Thats big foot for my height lol

Hey,it's cool to see you back,or maybe is it me who missed your recent posts?
Anyways,size 14 is indeed very big but are you sure you're not wearing kind of very comfortable size?
I mean I know a guy who's maybe like 0.75-1" smaller than me who claims to wear size 12 but looking at his feet could have sworn they weren't bigger than mine(I wear size 11 which is slightly big for the average man)
Canson said on 14/May/20
@Viper: I could buy Strawberry being more of a 196 range guy at times as opposed to 195.5. Jordan I’ve never imagined (outside of my childhood when I didn’t know better) being anything close to 6’6” barefoot. Lol I wanted to be 6’6” when I was younger but of course knowing what 6’6” really looks like now I wouldn’t want it
Canson said on 14/May/20
@Viper: he looked physically taller too. That’s in addition to being lankier

@Viper: I wear a 13 at 6’4.25” so Jordan’s isn’t too small for his height as he’s likely not more than 1/4” give or take, taller than me
Canson said on 13/May/20
@Viper: the documentary is the best. I’m sad that this is the final episode this Sunday. MJ’s suits look amazing. I actually disagree as far as his height in a baseball uniform. I get a taller impression (physically) from Darryl Strawberry than I do MJ. Strawberry was a true 6’5” guy maybe even a hair over the mark. I would still put Jordan at 6’4.5 or so. He looked similar to how Matt Ryan looks in appearance in my opinion
viper said on 13/May/20
The NBA listed Adrian Branch at his real height of 6-7. Branch said in an interview he was 6-7.5

At times he seemed to edge Bias
viper said on 13/May/20
What a coincidence you posted that after I mentioned Bias
Canson said on 12/May/20
Here they list Jordan at 6’5” and this is his Junior year when he was likely done growing. If he were really 6’5” plus barefoot, he would be listed 6’6” more than likely. I’m willing to be money that he was 6’4.5” barefoot or maybe 1/8” taller and when he came to North Carolina was under 6’4” barefoot. He likely grew

viper said on 11/May/20
That Roy Williams comment is funny.

6-7 Len Bias had at least 2 inches, sometimes looked more than 2 playing against Jordan when Jordan was a junior in 1984
viper said on 11/May/20
Canson, maybe it's just me but some of Jordans suits look awesome at least on him lol
viper said on 11/May/20
6-6 is impossible.

6-7 Scottie Pippen had 2 inches on him at least.
viper said on 11/May/20
Jordans size 13 feet are around average for his height.

But they are small in relation to his gigantic hands.

Tells you even hand and feet size do not correlate

Jordan really did look a solid 6-5 physically in a baseball uniform.

Editor Rob if Michael jordan was measured at 6 ft 4 and a half then why did you list him at 6 ft 5?

Well that's been the big question, did Pat Riley see the measurement.
Mark D. said on 28/Apr/20
That pic Duhon posted showing the difference between Jordan and a 6'1.5" Obama shows a solid 4-5 inch height difference. I'd say 6'6" peak height, and likely still that tall, or no more than 1/4 less.
Canson said on 27/Apr/20
In this pic if Obama is the full 6’1”, Jordan looks 194-195 range. He also looks it when Obama is putting the medal on him. It’s odd that I was listening to iHeart Radio today in the office and heard Colin Cowherd interview Roy Williams and he said Jordan was 6’4.5 freshman year and 6’6 sophomore year. I don’t know if Jordan really grew and they measured him in shoes when he first got there or if he just said it for effect

He is 198cm tall not 195.6cm or 6foot 5inches he is 6foot 6inches because in a video on the White House the Ex President Barack Obama get into his eyes or at the half of his nouse he is a very tall citizen and legendary

I would give Jordan 6' 4 1/2" for sure. He is lanky and long so he looks really tall. I'm regular 6' 3" flat, but lean and I look taller than I am. Jordan has giant hands and a huge head, his feet are small for his height. I was a huge 90's Bulls fan and around Pippen and Rodman, Jordan fits 6' 4 1/2" with an extra 1" from his Nikes. I wonder what Pippen's take on Jordan's height is...

I agree with your estimate of 6’4.5” and prob like 6’5.25” out of bed. But I don’t think Jordan’s head was that big for his size and I’m around the same height at 6’4.25” and my foot size is similar to his. But agreed Looked around 1.5-2” shorter than Rodman and 2 shorter than Pippen. I guessed Pippen around 6’6.5-6’7 (i try to see 6’7 but it’s hard). and Rodman 6’6-6’6.5. Pippen just didn’t look the full thing with a 6’9-6’10 Toni Kukoc or a maximum 6’9” Horace Grant. What were your guesses for those two in person?

6'4.75(195) similiar to Kobe
6'4 5/8 (194.6) Today at 57 years old
Canson said on 18/Dec/19
My bad meant to say Editor Rob and also meant to say he looks slightly shorter than a 6’5 range guy like Harper and with him or with Bird he looks 194-195 too
Canson said on 17/Dec/19
@Editot Rob: He really should be lowered at least 1/4” to 6’4.75 if Kobe is at that. Since he had 6’4 7/8 maybe that’s ok for him but If you see him with Ron Harper or Larry Bird or other 194-195 guys he’s the same size. Maybe 6’4 7/8 is the college measurement since they do measure early morning like I received in the past when I played in college. But he’s Not a full 6’5” guy in the afternoon. I believe the 6’4.5 that he measured as a rookie is his afternoon height or maybe 194.5 at most but 195 is almost accurate if going by lunchtime. He’s likely within 1/2 cm of it after 5 hours of being awake (194.6 around lunch perhaps and 194.3 afternoon or 194.8 and 194.5 afternoon). Seeing him with Damon Wayans he also looked 194-195 range same with 6’9” Larry bird
Canson said on 17/Nov/19
@Dream: yea I have him at 6’4.5”

He honestly looked way shorter than Chuck Connors, with Larry Bird.

He is probably close to 6’5” afternoon height. Meaning 6’4.5”

@JTM: 6’4.75 for Jordan is good but I believe he was always 6’4.5”. As for Kobe I believe he’s fine where he is or could be a small fraction higher but prob not a full 6’5”
Canson said on 3/Nov/19
@Rob: 6’4.75 or 6’4 7/8 for him being he only measured 6’4 7/8 before? Really he did measure 6’4.5 too but if that’s too low the 6’4 7/8 is a more accurate listing if you’re gonna list Barkley that way
Jtm said on 2/Nov/19
Kobe is the one that should be listed 6'5 and Jordan 6'4.5 or at least 6'4.75 that he was listed here before.

maybe carmelo can measure 198.5cm in the afternoon.
Canson said on 15/Oct/19
@Joe: I didn’t think Melo dipped under 198 in person. He looks taller than most guys who are measured around 6’6”. Example Paul Pierce. Pierce I could see 197-197.5 range. Maybe 6’5.75. My guess is 6’5 7/8 could be an extreme low for Melo but 6’6 1/8 is what I could say. Anywhere 6’6-6’6.25. Of course I’m at the mercy of having to trust how long someone has been awake and on their feet
joe### said on 14/Oct/19
I think Carmelo measures the same as Ali Baba Peak 197.8cm at night and 200cm in the morning.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Oct/19
@Canson Honestly i would rule out 200cm out of bed and 198cm before bed for Carmelo.
Canson said on 11/Oct/19
@Junior: I don’t rule out 6’6.25 for Melo actually. He could be over by a hair. Maybe 6’6 1/8 is where I would go for him. 6’6 just as possible tho
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Oct/19
Just saying MJ worst lowest could be 6'4 5/8 and i have see him look a solid 4cm taller than D Wade. Wade i can could agree with Canson now he is 6'3 a low which link back to 6'6 Carmelo often look 3" on Wade. Or could say MJ never lost anything yet as he was always 194.5cm a low and Kobe Bryant 195cm a low just like i wonder there is always a fraction between them and i would specifically throw Barkley into 194.75cm worst low just in between MJ and Kobe. Making some sense as Pat Riley mention MJ measure 6'4 1/2 that could be donkey years ago during his drafted year and grow a bit or a fraction over, 1980s drafted players might be measure in the afternoon we wouldn't know that for sure like on the sights of Pat Riley sees MJ as 6'4 1/2 a low but MJ could be close to 6'4 5/8 since he was always bald. Worst MJ could be 6'4 1/2 now but not under it.
Canson said on 5/Oct/19
@Mark D: peoole don’t accept you being 6’4? Is 6’4.5 your afternoon/evening height? I measure 6’4.25 (6’5 out of bed) myself and while some people think I’m taller due to the way I’m built I don’t always have an issue when I say I’m 6’4 which is all I ever claim.
Canson said on 5/Oct/19
If Rodman is 6’6 or 6’6.5 like he claims and like Pippen and Jordan said he is then there is no way Jordan is 6’5.5. Rodman was at least 1.5 if not 2” taller than jordan. Reggie Miller and Patrick Ewing have both said (along with Charles barkley) that Jordan is 6’4-6’5”. He was measured 6’4.5 when he was drafted

If Rodman is 6’6 or 6’6.5 like he claims and like Pippen and Jordan said he is then there is no way Jordan is 6’5.5. Reggie Miller and Patrick Ewing have both said (along with Charles barkley) that Jordan is 6’4-6’5”. He was measured 6’4.5 when he was drafted
Mark D. said on 4/Oct/19
Being 6'4.5" and calling myself 6'5" because people wouldn't accept me saying 6'4" to round it off, I can say though I've not met Jordan, in pictures I see of him standing next to various people he looks to be around 6'5.5". In good shape with normal posture so he hasn't lost any now. The 6'6" was a simple rounding up in my opinion.
Canson said on 29/Sep/19
@Tunman: I understand what you’re saying. But when Kobe came into the league Jordan at 33 would’ve still likely been at his peak. I don’t argue the 6’4.75 listing for Kobe being his low and Jordan may have been 6’4 5/8”, but Pat Riley saying He’s 6’4.5” shouldn’t be seen as bitterness. People need to stop thinking just because someone says a person isn’t as tall as they claim or they say that person is shorter than they are, that they’re hating on them. Riley was answering the reporter’s inquiries as to why he wasn’t drafted over Olajuwon and Bowie. And Riley saying someone’s actual height is just him doing that. Riley was known as being very honest during his career. He wasn’t going to lie, either. He wasn’t slighting Jordan and people shouldn’t see it that way being it’s just his height not his character. People assume when someone claims someone’s actual height that they try to make someone shorter when they’re not. And furthermore, I honestly don’t think Riley had a problem with Jordan per se. remember, Pat Riley retired Jordan’s jersey with the Heat which is the grandest of gestures bring Jordan never once played for the franchise. He’s the only person other than the Bulls to do so and Jordan is the only player who never once played for a franchise to have his uniform retired by them. Riley did not hate Jordan all that much as he didnt have to do that. And that was early on. If he really had reason to hate MJ it would’ve been in the 90s when Riley coached the Knicks and Heat. But Riley calling him 6’4.5” was just answering (in an honest manner) why he wasn’t drafted first and he was likely either giving an exact or maybe just approximate measurement. Riley has met him so he could give an assessment as to how tall he was. Next to Larry Bird I tend to believe 6’4.5” and having played ball myself through college that’s common for a guy to be listed 6’6” and be as low as 6’4 or 6’4.25 as the same happened to me. But Jordan being listed 6’4.75 would look much better than 6’5” imho because that could’ve very well been at 5 hours for him and maybe dip to 6’4 5/8 perhaps. 6’4.5 tho or .75 would work imho

Tunman said on 28/Sep/19
6'4.75 for Kobe is fair and so is it for Jordan.I still think a peak Jordan and Kobe could have been reasonably the same.6'4 5/8?Not impossible you can argue that but I'm still convinced he was measured at evening and had only little height to lose so 6'4.75 still makes sense.I would take Riley's words carefully though as he seemed quite bitter towards Jordan,so maybe tried to undermine his height to 6'4.5(although maybe he was a little over?)195 is the best compromise if you ask me.
Canson said on 27/Sep/19
Kobe should not be listed 195 and Jordan 196. They should be the same at 195 or Jordan at 6’4.5” being he also measured that mark. He’s not taller than Kobe
Canson said on 26/Sep/19
@Shane: my money in his prime he was actually 6’4.5 or max 6’4 5/8 (something like 194.5cm). But I agree with you that he’s def under 6’5 afternoon height. I think 6’4.75 is a fair listing for him as it’s clear he’s not taller than Kobe. If anything I think Kobe would actually edge him as he really does look the 6’4.75 afternoon height
Shane Gray said on 26/Sep/19
Jordan is under 6'5" by this sites afternoon barefoot standard and I think that is clear. I'm surprised you haven't adjusted this to 6'4 3/4" max, Rob.
Canson said on 25/Sep/19
@Roderick: lol I know right! That’s the second time I’ve done that with the picture. If you google the two Starks and jordan you’ll see it when They’re face to face on the court. Jordan is about 2.5” taller than Starks which adds up being Starks admitted to 6’2” so MJ 6’4.5 ish. I don’t rule out maybe 194.5 for him but that’s as high as I could give Jordan

Tunman said on 12/Sep/19
Actually,Christian 6'4.5"is not impossible although you can discuss whether he was this mark or the 6'4 7/8" that did appear too often.Both are reasonable opinions.The whole thing is about how we can interpret Riley's claim in other words did he claim Jordan's exact mark or did he round down a mark like 6'4.75 or 6'4 7/8".Ultimately I'm still convinced that 6'4 7/8"was a true measurement although probably like Barkley it was an evening one so he wouldn't have lost much more than that or maybe 1/8 at most.And Barkley's at 6'4 5/8" is certainly the lowest arguable.I would still leave Jordan at 6'4.75 as the best compromise.It's not completely absurd to think he was exactly the same as Kobe.
Canson said on 23/Aug/19
@Brad: Phil Jackson once said Kobe was slightly taller. I mean they’re very close in height but next to Ron Harper I could see Kobe edging Jordan as Harper always seemed close to an inch taller than jordan on the court
Canson said on 22/Aug/19
@Duhon: an evening measurement would be more legitimate than a morning measurement. Rob has mentioned before that he assumes each person has been awake for 5 hours and that they measure around their low or maybe 1/8” above that mark. I think kobe is probably an afternoon measurement though. I doubt he goes below that by much. He does look more than just a solid 2” shorter than Lebron. I have Lebron pegged as solid 6’7” for site purposes

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Aug/19
At the worst I can see Kobe and Jordan being identical, but I still give the edge to Kobe. If by a miracle Jordan's any taller, it's still not more than 1/8" since Jordan measured 6'4 7/8". And that's ignoring the fact that Pat Riley claimed that Jordan was measured 6'4.5" early in his career.
Bradley said on 20/Aug/19
Shoe advantage Kobe. 23 wins by a smidge.

Jordan looks slightly taller than Kobe here Click Here Also we still don't know if Kobe's 6'4.75" measurement by his wife was an evening measurement and could be near or at his low?
Canson said on 20/Aug/19
@Christian: I would still have Kobe maybe 1/4” taller In that picture. Kobe could look a weak 6’5” with Lebron to be honest whereas he looks 6’5” with others. I believe the 6’4.75 or maybe he dropped below by a mm or so. Jordan I would say 6’4.5 tho maybe even a mm under or over

@Junior: I also could buy 6’4.75 max 5 hours out of bed so that would be a better start than 6’5” flat. I think 6’4.5 at a low still but there’s always a chance for 6’4 5/8 at a low. 6’4.75 is still much closer to the truth and that was his initial listing here
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Jul/19
Rob, so you did feel the low is 195cm for Jordan?
Editor Rob
Well it wouldn't be too hard to believe 6ft 4 7/8ths as a possible measurement for him.
Canson said on 25/Jul/19
@Rob: that wasn’t my intent the video game. I found a pic of Jordan and Starks on the internet. Jordan looks about 2.5” taller when he’s standing in front of him. That’s not 3” flat
Canson said on 25/Jul/19
@Rob and Malcolm Streer: Riley was 6’2”.

@Rob: as for Jordan and Starks: 2.5” is how it usually looks. He only has around 3-3.5 with Larry Johnson and about 3.5 with Anthony Mason

Hey Rob I think 6ft5 is a good listing for MJ. And Rob out of curiosity how tall do you think Pat Riley is? Hes listed as 6ft 4 but looks more 6ft 2.5 now he was probably 6ft 4 in his youth but 6ft 2.5-2.75 now. So Rob, How tall do you think Pat Riley was in his youth and how tall do you think he is now Rob? And do you think you can add Pat Riley to this Site Rob?
Editor Rob
I am not so familiar with Riley's height, but with Jordan I wouldn't have guessed he was over 6ft 3 really
Canson said on 15/Jul/19
@Junior: Jordan was not 19 when he was drafted. He was 21. He played 3 years in college and was drafted in 84. He was born in 63. Better chance he didn’t grow after as he was an adult
Canson said on 15/Jul/19
@Junior: Jordan is without a doubt over 6’5” peak when he woke up. I would say 6’5-6’5.5 range out of bed. Probably 6’5.25
Canson said on 15/Jul/19
@Junior: I’m not seeing how it’s a myth. 6’4.5 at a low is very possible. And Kobe is not 6’5 flat he’s 6’4.75. Jordan only had Brady by little. 1/2”-3/4”. I don’t rule out a peak 6’4 5/8 for Jordan but 6’4.75 seems too high
Canson said on 15/Jul/19
@Tunman: imho a good listing on the site may be 6’4.75 or 6’4 5/8. Lunchtime height (5 hours out) he may be either of those. Afternoon height would be 1/8” less at 6’4.5 or 6’4 5/8 though. The key factor is that looking close to 6’5” is not hard when you’re wearing 1.25” sneaks and thick shoes all the time. The other is that he did look over 4” shorter than Larry bird and close to 2” less than rodman
Tunman said on 12/Jul/19
Still I think 6'4.75 could fit him better than 6'4.5.He honestly looks too close to 6'5 to be much under it.Pat Riley was certainly not a Jordan fan,but if anything his words suggest that Jordan was indeed measured under 6'5 the question is how much.I mean in that interview he seemed so disgusted so may have tried to undermine him in terms of height by saying 6'4.5(but it could have been anywhere from 6'4.5 to 6'4 7/8).So 6'4.75 could be a good compromise
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jul/19
Canson, Jordan was drafted at 19. He had a little potential to grow a little taller. 6'5 is at least a morning height. To be fair for Tom Brady and Michael Strahan being 6'4 a low. MJ stay 6'4.75" and Kobe 6'5 the 6'4 1/2 stuff is myth for both of them unless we met them in real.
Canson said on 11/Jul/19
@Junior: only thing is that Barkley measured 6’4 5/8 in 92 and Kobe 6’4.75. Barkley is also guessed 6’4-6’5 or just 6’4 in person when people meet him. As for Jordan he also was supposed to have measured 6’4.5. But for all of these guys the ones we have specific measurements for Kobe and Barkley specifically, it’s not as right to doubt those as being too low versus Wade or someone else being too high. When someone is drafted there is money and their career on the line. Those are the measurements that I would question. I mean look at Shawne Merriman. We have all but debunked that myth. He’s not 6’4 3/8 or even close. There are others too such as kyler Murray. He is not 5’10”. But I would less likely doubt an Olympic measurement when someone has been in the league for 9 years and they already not only know how he performs but they have an idea of how tall the guy is already. They’re essentially being measured for Sh1ts and giggles versus for their standing in the draft and essentially their careers. That is where the frauding would expect to play in (if at all). But it’s also that those guys were measured at lows. Whereas the others were not
Canson said on 10/Jul/19
@Rob and Junior: Jordan measured 6’4.5 when he was drafted. He’s probably a smidgeon shorter than Kobe
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Jul/19
Although Canson point out 6'4 3/8-6'4 1/2 for MJ but that is respectively his estimate. I would still go 6'4.75" a low for Jordan and Barkley and 6'5 a possible chance for Kobe Bryant. Kobe's real height has become some myth to go when the few version came out 6'5(late 90s claimed),6'4,6'4 1/2 and 6'6 by his own words and his wife claim to measured him 6'4.75" and 6'6 with shoes on.
Canson said on 9/Jul/19
@Never: his height wouldn’t matter because he was a guard. He was a big 2 guard in his era as most of them were 6’3-6’4 barefoot whereas he was 6’4-6’5 barefoot. I would say someone like Charles Barkley 6’4.5 or Draymond Green 6’5” or Larry Johnson or Clarence Weatherspoon 6’5 and and a bit were truly undersized
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jul/19
Rob, i'm curious that were you atually think Jordan is taller than Kobe Bryant and Barkley?
Editor Rob
He might not be, arguably 6ft 4.75 for Jordan is possible too.
Canson said on 8/Jul/19
@Mickie: I have him strong 6’5 out of bed. 6’5.25 maybe 6’5 3/8 and 6’4,5 or 5/8 at a low. He’s probably not over 6’4.5 really. I think Brady is 6’4” flat or at absolute worst if he dips below the mark it’s 6’3 7/8 but not lower on a normal basis
Canson said on 8/Jul/19

If anything, being "only" 6-4.5 makes him even greater!
Mickie said on 4/Jul/19
Brady measured 6'4 3/8", that was probably a fairly early measurement but I think it suggests that anything below 6'3 7/8" - 6'4" at a low is pretty unlikely (unless it was conducted closer to waking up than I suspect). It could even mean more 6'4" - 6'4.25" - it's difficult to say. I have Jordan more like 6'4.5", probably a strong 6'5" in the morning.
Canson said on 2/Jul/19
@Junior: I didn’t mean that Jordan was that low. What I meant was Jordan’s 6’4.5 measurement would be the same as me measuring 6’4.25 meaning based on time of the day. I would have Jordan at his peak as taller than me. Even if my peak were 193.9-194 I still have Jordan 194.3-194.7 range. I doubt Brady is a weak 6’4. He’s a solid 6’4” Jordan weak 6’5 not dipping less than 6’4.5 probably still or maybe 1 mm worst case today at 56
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/19
If you bring down MJ at 6'4.25" then Tom Brady needed to drop 2cm down into 6'3.5" zone no arguement for higher. MJ had him by 2cm. The worst i can only think of 6'4 1/2 for MJ and Brady stay weak 6'4.
Canson said on 17/Jun/19
@Junior: I think 6’4.5 would be equivalent to me measuring 6’4.25 meaning his normal low in his prime. Maybe best case he’s something like 6’4 5/8 peak at a low
Canson said on 16/Jun/19
He was always 6’4.5. 6’5 in the morning. He doesn’t look like he’s lost any height
Spencer Dobkin said on 14/Jun/19
6'5" peak. 6'4.5" today.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/19
Drafted at 6'4.5" which can mean MJ had grow taller up to a 6'5 morning measurement and stable at 6'4.75". Sometime i don't think Kobe is taller nor shorter than MJ. Include Barkley they are all big looking 195cm guy might all fall into 6'4.75" a low.
Canson said on 11/Jun/19
He should at least get 6’4.75 since he’s not taller than Kobe although he did measure 6’4.5 when he was drafted
Canson said on 28/May/19
I agree with Duhon on the difference between them but for afternoon heights I’d knock off 1/2 for my estimates to solid 6’5 and 6’4.5 maybe give or take 1/8” on both. Carter to me genuinely looks a textbook 6’5” more so than Kobe or Jordan tho
Onabill Choudhury said on 27/May/19
His parents are below average height people plus his own brother is only in the 5 ft 8 range so MJ really got lucky with genetics
Duhon said on 26/May/19

Canson said on 30/Apr/19
Absolute most I could buy at his peak is 6’4 5/8 at a low which would make him 6’5 7/8 in b-ball sneaks and near enough 6’6” to look it. 6’4.5 would still make him 6’5.75 or so and that won’t look much different or anywhere in between the two figures.
Canson said on 27/Apr/19
@Jdubbz: I can look at a guy like Carmelo who really is 6’6” range and put MJ’s 6’6 to rest easily. Kobe really can look 6’4.5, like he claims, with Melo
Canson said on 27/Apr/19
@Jdubbz: if he’s met him. But every person who I personally know whether it be in his prime or today says he’s 6’4/6’5” range. I’ve seen a couple people here say he looked 6’5 or a little under but if he’s in his basketball sneaks he will look closer to 6’5 since they give 1.25” he’d be 6’5.75 in them. I’ve seen people on the internet say the same that he’s 6’4 range or 6’5 at most. Likely that he’s 6’5 in the morning and 6’4.5 range at a low 3/8-5/8 perhaps
Canson said on 26/Apr/19
@Christian: he also measured once at 6’4 1/2”
Jdubbz said on 26/Apr/19

Right? Maybe Eddioe is a strong 6'4 in the morning when he's in his sneakers lol. There is no way MJ is near 6'6 barefoot; even 6'5 is questionable these days.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Apr/19
Jordan was measured 6'4 7/8" once so there's no way he's 6'6".
Canson said on 25/Apr/19
@Jdubbz: at best a weak 6’3” and that’s if he’s actually met him
Jdubbz said on 24/Apr/19

Sorry to break it to you, but if MJ is at least 2 inches taller than you, then you're a strong 6'2 at best.
Canson said on 17/Apr/19
Lol Mike is not a barefoot 6’6”. Hes 6’4-6’5
Eddioe said on 16/Apr/19
I worked with Mike for over three years in the late 90's. I saw and talked to him several times a week. I'm a strong 6'4" and Mike is AT LEAST two inches taller than me. He is 6'6" no doubt.
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Jdubbz: a lot of people who meet him today still describe him as how he supposedly appeared in his prime. 6’4 and change or “almost 6’5”. Then again I have seen some say 6’4” and some 6’5”. I could possibly say he was something like 194.5 like Barkley peak but today still looks 194-194.5 It’s also possible that his height loss has been very minimal
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
I doubt he’s as low as 6’3.75 or 6’4”. To be quite honest, Jordan appears to have retained his height since his playing days. It’s more than likely that he was never the full 6’5” at his low peak. He may have been something like 6’4.5-.75 range however. He’s likely not over 6’4.5 at a low today but 6’5 range in the morning
Jdubbz 196cm said on 25/Mar/19

Do you think he's still that height or has he lost a little? If he was a legit 6'4.5 peak then I could definitely see him being your height these days or maybe even a mm lower
Height Geek said on 24/Mar/19
In his playing days I'd give him 6'5" flat. However, for the past ten years or so he seems to be more in the 6'3.75" to 6'4 1/8" range to me.
Canson said on 22/Mar/19
Agreed JTM. Always been a legit 6’4.5 barefoot at a low

Some think Jordan is only 6'4 some say 6'4 1/4 some 6'4 1/2 most say he is 6'4 3/4 and fans say 6'5-6'6. I go with logic if Jordan had a measurement at 6'4.88 (195.3) then he qualify for 6'4 3/4 whether he is fraction under or he is a full 195cm we don't know it. I trust 6'4 1/2 previously but he can look alot like 6'4 3/4 just don't see Jordan lost height yet and he look solid 10cm on 185cm Obama so no point argue 6'4 1/2 while he pass for 195cm.
Canson said on 5/Mar/19
@Christian: I’m surprised too. Even for Barkley, I’m not seeing where he measured that. But I do see where he “officially measured 6’4 5/8” at the Olympics. The sportswriter mentioning 6’4 7/8 “as official” here when he’s also measured 6’4 5/8 at 29 years old in the Olympics makes it more believable which is a crock. But I’ll flip the argument. People always make an excuse about the sportwriter that mentioned Jordan measuring 6’4 1/2 but it’s “too low for Michael Jordan to be” so it’s not accurate because it wasn’t a “credible source”. But because the Sportswriter used a measurement that made Barkley taller, it is more “accepted” and because Jordan edges out 6’4” and 6’3 guys listed 6’5”
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Mar/19
Jordan should at least get a 6'4 7/8" listing, since he was measured that at one point. Rob gave 6'4 7/8" for Barkley so I don't see why he still won't give Jordan the same thing.
Canson said on 1/Mar/19
Jordan is overlisted if we are going by site standards. Best case if we just go with 5 hours may be 6’4.75 but really he looks 6’4.5 at a low so 6’4 5/8” after 5. Either of those three work better than the solid 6’5”.

Canson said on 17/Dec/18
@Junior: the highest I buy at his peak is 6’4 5/8ish. Maybe somewhere between 6’4 1/2-2/3. People also must realize that he tends to wear a lot of footwear that makes him appear taller. That’s also not known if he wears an orthotic. It wouldn’t surprise me if I’m in a 1” shoe and he’s in something that gives 1.25 and he edged me out that I wouldn’t assume he’s 6’4.75 perhaps if I’m 6’5.25 in a 1” shoe I would see him at 6’5.75 maybe a tad over if he had an orthotic too. I would automatically assume without looking that he’s around 6’5”. I’m not saying he does wear one definitively but if he does that would put him almost right at 6’6” in sneaks from 6’4.5
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Dec/18
We don't know if Jordan was really 6'4 1/2 today. If he was measure 195.3cm then he might just lost a fraction under it if is not an early morning measurement so probably MJ still close to 6'4 3/4 and if he really have lost a fraction now then he would be 6'4 1/2 like Canson mention same to Charles Barkley.

I would say that based on how Jordan looked when he played baseball (long pants) that he is of the same exact size as Matt Ryan. 6047 morning and would dip to 6’4.5 or 6’4 3/8 at a low. They look the same size on tv
Canson said on 17/Nov/18
@Junior: today he may be. Barkley can look closer to 6’4 today to be honest. I’d say peak heights they’re close both 6’4.5 barefoot
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Nov/18
Sometimes i atually convinced that Jordan was merely taller than Barkley like listing given.

Canson said on 29/Oct/18
@Mickie: I believe Drexler is 6’5” but Mullin not sure on. He can look shorter than Barkley or the same. It could be a thicker shoe however. I believe MJ and Barkley to be the same height.
Mickie said on 25/Oct/18
@Canson - you could be right about Mullin and Drexler, although they do look above Jordan in height in the dream team photo. How much exactly could be debated. They could just be 6'5" guys.
Canson said on 23/Oct/18
@Mickie: I would have Magic 6’7-6’7.25. I agree about MJ and always have had him at that height 6’4.5. That’s likely his low however and he would measure a hair over 6’5 out of bed. Drexler I actually have at 6’5 flat and Mullin could be 6’5 or under. He and Barkley looked similar. Unless Barkley had more footwear. If they’re actually the same, Mullin is 6’4.5 too. He looks that with Sprewell who admitted to being 6’4”. Mullin was listed 6’6 when he came in the league. He used to be a guard. He was boosted to 6’7” when he began playing forward

Check out the '92 dream team photos. If we accept Bird is a legit 6'9", he's is standing in between MJ who would appear 6'4.5" and Magic Johnson who would appear to be perhaps 6'7.25" - 6'7.5". Chris Mullen and Clyde Drexler are on Magic's other side, they appear close in height to each other. Maybe Drexler at around 6'5.5" if he equals everyone else's posture and Mullen perhaps 6'5" - 6'5.25" without his hair. Anyway, both of those guys look taller than MJ.
Canson said on 22/Oct/18
@Animus: you are right. I don’t think Jordan was taller than him and I don’t think Barkley actually believes that he is either. That was for the argument that he was making
Animus said on 21/Oct/18

Go to 6:48. Barkley describes Jordan as having the perfect body and as being taller than himself. He also describes him as 6'6. Now, I'm not saying either proposition is true--he's clearly not 6'6--but Barkley at least at one time believed Jordan was taller than him.
Canson said on 18/Oct/18
@Animus: I’ve never heard Barkley say MJ was taller I don’t think but I’ve heard Jordan say that they roughly the same height before. My guess is both are 6’4.5 at a low. Barkley may lose more than Jordan but who knows. I would have both or at least MJ as

196.2 out of bed
194.3 at a low


196.5 out of bed
194.3 at a low
Animus said on 17/Oct/18
He might be slightly shy of a full 6'5. Barkley seems to think that Jordan was taller than him, but he also thought that Jordan was 220-230lbs, so he seems terrible at gauging physical stature. I'll bet a lot of money that Jordan is within ½cm of 195cm. He's somewhere in the 194½-195½cm range, but it's extremely difficult to tell, where he would fall.
Canson said on 13/Oct/18
6’5 1/4 out of bed peak.
6’4 7/8 early morning measurement (after an hour or two)
6’4 1/2 in the afternoon
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Oct/18

2 Chainz isn't even listed 6'4.5" by Rob, he has him at 6'4.25"
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
@Junior: the only time that 2Chainz is favored is when he looks taller than Jordan. Even in the video I posted, Jordan is favored at times and is slightly taller. For most of the video, they can be the same height as the difference between them is the same when Jordan is favored or when 2Chainz. That leads me to believe that they are roughly the same height. Maybe Jordan has 1/4” but it’s also possible that 2Chainz is only 6’4” flat. Jordan looks 6’4.5 with Magic, Barkley, Larry Bird as well as Ron Harper and other ballers I’ve seen him with
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
@Junior: maybe 3/8” but we need to determine footwear. My guess is that there may not be a noticeable difference. Jordan at 6’4.5 and 2 Chainz 6’4.25 is possible. Or the latter may be closer to 6’4”. I believe MJ would be 6’4.5 at a low and 6’5.25 out of bed
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Oct/18
@Canson bad angle in that video. 2 Chainz is closer to camera angle and Duhon post make Jordan closer to camera take a little advantage look like he was easily over 6'5 when leaning. Overall i believe 2 Chainz is 1/2 inch shorter than Jordan if there is a better straight line standing picture to compare their height.
Duhon said on 7/Oct/18
Here is the pic with 2 Chainz who Rob has at 6'4.5", Jordan is leaning in and still looks at least 6'5" Click Here
Canson said on 6/Oct/18
Here he is with 2 Chainz. Jordan has never been a full 6’5 or even 195. He was at most 6’4.5 at a low at his peak

Canson said on 5/Oct/18
@Brad: you said recently that he’s a weak 6’5”. You’re inconsistent

@Dream: easily
Dream(5'9.5") said on 5/Oct/18
i think Bo Burnham and Metta World Peace would edge out Michael Jordan.

A young John Cleese could also be taller than Michael Jordan.
Bradley said on 3/Oct/18
As listed now and then.
Canson said on 30/Sep/18
He needs a downgrade. This is a morning height for him equivalent to someone else measuring an hour after waking but by CH standards 6’4.5.
Batistataker said on 30/Sep/18
6ft 5 ¼ (196.2 cm)
Canson said on 20/Sep/18
6’4.5 then and now
Canson said on 20/Sep/18
@Junior: because of his thick sneaks. Around other b-ball players he looks 6’4.5 honestly esp Larry bird
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Sep/18
Atually Jordan can look a bit over 6'4 1/2. Most of time he look 6'4 5/8 or 6'4 3/4.
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Viper: Rob has most of the b-ball players listed 1/2” taller (morning) than they measure at a low due to morning heights. Except Kobe and Bird and KG.
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Junior: 6’5.25 prob out of bed (6 AM), 6’4.5 around 2 PM

@Viper: agreed
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Brad: you said yourself that he’s a weak 6’5”
viper said on 7/Sep/18
Agree with 6-4.5.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Sep/18
@Bradley MJ probably was 6'5 at 8am, 6'4 1/2 at 8pm.
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Junior: my guess is that is his normal low for the day 6’4.5 and 6’5.25 out of bed. In his sneakers he would be close to 6’6” due to the thickness and he has long limbs and good posture which is why he appears taller
Bradley said on 5/Sep/18
6-5 for decades and even now. Rob has him iced like a 6 seconds to go basket.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Sep/18
@Canson Pat Riley are telling the hard truth. MJ real height affected those 6'5 listed actors which never met by Rob will all be hold on the 6'4 1/2 except for Pete Holmes we all already know he belong a bit under 6'4 1/2. Even many actors met by Rob were strong fraction over listed.
Canson said on 2/Sep/18
@Junior: Manning would at least be 6’5” at a low in his prime. He was measured at his pro day at 6’5 3/8 I believe and 6’5.25 combine. I agree on MJ. 6’5.25 out of bed 6’4.5 at a low
Canson said on 31/Aug/18
@Brad: you said before that Jordan had a footwear advantage on you and that you had him by an inch. Meaning if you are 6’5.5 now and 6’6” then, Jordan was likely a weak 6’5” (6’4.5) all along
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Aug/18
@Dream(5'9.5") Well say Dream. He def get guess over 6'5 all the time. One point to say most of the 6'5 listed actors are not legit 6'5 like MJ too, prob most of them measure 6'4 1/2 and round up. Peter Cambor call himself 6'5 look more like MJ height or lower. I believe on the 6'4 1/2 is a low MJ get. He still look this range alot while Tom Brady is def a weak 6'4 with him.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Aug/18
Pat Riley said that Jordan was measure at 6'4 1/2 that would put Peyton Manning down at 6'4 3/4 and Joe Manganiello not over 6'4 1/4 or less. Which accumulated out all NBA/NFL and all sportsman measured their height in the morning between 6.30-10am which they're 1/4 to 5/8 shorter than what they all be measured depends on the sleep and the time they get a proper measurement. Added a random example like a unmeasured actor who claim 6'4 and a touch like Jeff Goldblum would be only 6'4 at his low not the 6'4 1/2 peak guessing all over the place.
Canson said on 28/Aug/18
@Dream: I think he would measure that in the AM. Peak height I still can’t see above 194.5 max. Maybe 194.3 (6’4.5).
Bradley said on 28/Aug/18
6-6 in the 80's for me, not much less now. Jordan has been 6-5 for decades, no loss. Worn Chucks area a must for me. His 6-6 fib is typical NBA listing jive.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Aug/18

Michael Jordan—even if he was 1/8ths under 6’5”—has a intimidating presence that he could get mistaken for being taller.
Canson said on 25/Aug/18
Lol he measured 6’4.5 so the only way he would be 6’5.5 is In shoes
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Aug/18
Why i always feel that is many 6'5 listed actors look shorter than Jordan. 6'4.88 (195.3) get round up 6'5 but could it be more like 6'4 5/8 (194.6) my guess for MJ. Those 6'5 claim actor most are 6'4 1/2 only a few look to be close to what they claim. One example 6'4 1/4 Armie Hammer look no way 6'5 but still claiming it ever since his Social Network movie appearance. Some are still not nailed by Rob for a downgrade. MJ deserved same listing as Barkley.
Spencer said on 22/Aug/18
Strong 6'5" when he was younger like 6'5.5". 6'5" today.
Canson said on 15/Aug/18
@Rob: there’s no good reference for a 6’5” measurement either
Canson said on 11/Aug/18
@Gracian: fast forward to 3:03. That’s not even a 4” difference as President Obama is above Jordan’s eyebrows. If Obama was still a full 6’1” at that time Jordan would be 6’4 1/2 like he was when he was drafted. He likely was a guy who woke up to 6’5.25 and dipped to around 6’4.5 at a low in the afternoon
Canson said on 11/Aug/18
@Rob: he obviously is under the mark. He measured 6’4.5 and 6’4 7/8 at two different times. My guess the former is his actual height and the latter earlier in the day. Bird has over 4” on Jordan

Click Here

@Gracian: he looks 6’4.5 with larry Bird which is what he was when drafted.
Editor Rob
I would need to find a good reference for the measurement.
Gracian said on 10/Aug/18
I can not understand people who want to argue the zone 6'4.75-5" for him... For me Jordan looks closer to 196 cm than 195 and think that zone 6'5-5.25" is more likely for him. Here's Jordan's full performance next to Obama: Click Here
Obama can look very often 186 cm, but even if he has only 6'1" Jordan does not look under 6'5" next to him. In addition, here are more of his photos next to Ne-Yo: Click Here

Rob, thank you for giving Ne-Yo downgrade to 172 cm, but even now Jordan still does not look lower than 6'5" next to him. Rob, what's your opinion about height of Jordan?
Editor Rob
I think Jordan is somewhere close to 6ft 5. I cannot confirm whether he really was measured under it. He might have been, but for the moment 6ft 5 I still think is ok.
Canson said on 9/Aug/18
@Shane: I actually believe he’s slightly over 6’5” out of bed. Going by afternoon heights, he would be a weak 6’5 (6’4.5ish). But if we went by morning heights he’s a legit 6’5”
Shane said on 9/Aug/18
@Canson: I think clarification would help. You accurately stated celebheights uses afternoon barefoot heights as the standard. But then you also said Jordan isnt a legit 6'5". That is true IF ONLY going by this site. But he likely is 6'5" out of bed so in the bigger picture that makes him a legit 6'5" barefoot.
Canson said on 1/Aug/18
Not to mention measured 6’4.5 when drafted as well
Canson said on 1/Aug/18
MrTBlack said it well in a previous post here. Jordan measured 6’4 7/8 in college which is likely a morning height but that still makes him around a weak 6’5 (6’4.5ish maybe 5/8 peak) perhaps somewhere in between since Celebheights is based on an afternoon height. Fact is he is not a legit 6’5” like he’s listed
Mickie said on 31/Jul/18
I tend to considering the measured heights when available. Jordan has been quoted as having measured 6'4.5", and when you really look at him next to other tall guys, it starts to look about right. Larry Bird at 6'9" looked 4.5" taller than MJ.
Canson said on 26/Jul/18
@Brad: didn’t you just say that he was a weak 6’5” on Stallone’s page as you admitted that you weren’t 6’6”? You admitted you were more like 6’5.5 in the afternoon and said several times that Jordan was an inch shorter than you? You even said before that You wore Chuck Taylor’s and pretty much said that Jordan had a footwear advantage on you? That puts Jordan at 6’4.5 like he was when he was drafted
Bradley said on 25/Jul/18
6-6 listed forever, 6-5 reality. Still Six-Five.
Canson said on 21/Jul/18
@Tunman: he does look 6’4-6’5. Looks what Pat Riley says next to Larry Bird
Tunman said on 16/Jul/18
Does he look 6'4-5?Hmmm,maybe more chance for being nearer to 6'5.The thing is that we unfortunately don't have a recording of the 6'4.5"Riley spoke about.knowing that the guy wasn't exactly a great fan of MJ there is always a chance he rounded to 6'4.5" a measurement like 6'4.75"or so.Not impossible.If anything Riley's words suggest a sub 6'5 measurement but again the question is by how much?6'4 7/8"has appeared too often not to have been a measurement but that's only my opinion.
Canson said on 5/Jul/18
@Junior: he def isn’t as low as 6’4”. But 6’4.5 at a low looks accurate as that’s the most common 6’4/6’5 or 6’4 and change. That also explains how he looks “a little under” 6’5 as that’s how that would look
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Jul/18
Strange that i ever read up someone claim he is 6'4 and standing next to Jordan in real say he probably edge out Jordan by like a 1/4 or 1cm. I hope those people can stop those nonsense. Jordan is 6'4.88 and down at least 6'4 5/8.
Canson said on 2/Jul/18
@Christian: really not even 6’5. I think he mentioned that. I think he mentioned 6’4 3/4 too. I think 6’4 7/8 and 5/8 are the two I see and I agree that it would be the lower of the two. Likely that the 7/8 is a morning height of some sort as well
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 30/Jun/18

Yeah, if Barkley has four different measurements (6'4 5/8", 6'4.75", 6'4 7/8" and 6'5"), then it only makes sense to go with the lowest one since no one's gonna be any taller at their low than what they measured.
Canson said on 30/Jun/18
I think going off afternoon heights, Pat riley’s Claim for Jordan is believeable which is why he looks “a little under” “almost” or a “weak” 6’5” to most. He would measure 6’4 7/8 or 6’5 if he got measured an hour out of bed like most guys are today. But Celebheights is based on afternoon heights (at least it’s supposed to be). Some guys are listed morning but that’s because Rob doesn’t have anything else to go off of other than another athlete in the same sport who also measured morning. Rob also won’t rarely underlists he would overlist if anything
Canson said on 30/Jun/18
@Christian: Barkley’s 6’4 7/8 measurement is even no more official than his 6’4 5/8” in my opinion. People only take it more seriously because Barkley looks taller next to other over listed celebs and players and because the quote contains the words “official”. Barkley has always been one of the most inflated celebs here in this site. I agree that if Barkley has this then Jordan should get the 6’4 7/8, 6’4.75 (although no direct reference to but he was listed this before), or 6’4.5 since that’s what he actually measured when he was drafted. The thing is Jordan at 6’4.5 is probably his normal low which is why people think he’s “closer to 6’5” since he would measure maybe 6’5.25 out of bed (in my opinion) and be a weak 6’5 for virtually the whole day. People who think him being “almost 6’5” etc don’t realize that 195 and 6’5 won’t look any different (Kobe is a prime example of this) whereas 6’4.5 at a normal low will look “a little under 6’5” not to mention he wears a thicker sneaker often enough
Height said on 29/Jun/18

Obama is a solid 6'1" (185.42 cm) if not a tad taller. My friend has met him, check the photo I posted on his page.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Jun/18

But Barkley's 6'4 7/8" measurement is no more "official" than Jordan's. You even listed Kobe as 6'4.75" which wasn't even an official NBA measurement but a measurement by his wife. It doesn't make sense for Jordan to not get a 6'4 7/8" listing now.
184guy2 said on 28/Jun/18
Joe is taller than Alexander , Armie Hammer and Michael Straham , all 193-194 guys so he should be at least 6'4 5/8 . He in fact looked similar to Ben Rorthlisbeger who was measured at 6'4 7/8 in 2004
Canson said on 28/Jun/18
@Junior: That looks max 3.5. I’m not sure if Obama is still a solid 6’1” today
Canson said on 28/Jun/18
1984 pre draft was supposedly 6’4.5. Also saw 6’5 but that was likely rounded up

6’4 7/8 was either at Olympics in 92 or at UNC
