@Editor Rob: you also said Cudmore looked taller with less footwear. Cud more I think looks a perfect example of 6’6.5” as he looks similar To Rhett McLaughlin. Fox could be as low as 6’5.5 tbh but another variable is that he said 6’7” while ballin 6’5” while actin. That suggests he’s somewhere in the 6’5-6’6 range at most. Meaning he has a 5 on the front of it somewhere even if it’s 5.5 or 5.75”
Editor Rob
yeah Cudmore could look indeed give a taller impression with a bit less footwear. I saw him up close more than Rick though.
Canson said on 6/Nov/21
@Editor Rob: but in the pic with Kobe it was more like 1”. He looks more 6’5.75”
Editor Rob
yeah I haven't exactly ruled that out.

@Rob
If he looked shorter than AJ in person , why he is still listed taller ?
Editor Rob
because of extra footwear and overall physique, he could give a bigger impression. It may well turn out if measured both could be very close

196.5-197 peak ,196-196.5 nowdays.

@Rampage: I’d say weak 6’6
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Sep/21
6ft6 is fine...if under not by more than a fraction but both 6ft5 and 6ft7 should be ruled out
Canson said on 20/Sep/21
@Editor Rob: I would go with that over the 6’6 listing
Canson said on 18/Sep/21
@Editor Rob: what would you say the likeliest is for his afternoon?

A. 6’5.5
B. 6’5.75
C. 6’6”
Editor Rob
May turn out that B could be fair
Canson said on 13/Sep/21
@Editor Rob: I think you were right that he didn’t look the full 6’6 up close. You’ve already posted pics with Kobe and Fox but here is Fox with Pau Gasol who is 7’0”. Maybe 6’5.5-.75 perhaps max. Also if you see Fox next to Coby Bell on The Game he wasn’t 6’6. That’s not 4” between them.

Editor Rob
A weak 6ft 6 range could fit him, but I still thought overall he has a decent chance of measuring near 6ft 6
recapa said on 8/Sep/21
196-197 before bed and 198-199 out of bed.
Hyper said on 25/Jun/21
@Canson

I can believe Fox to have a few mm's over Burnham. Maybe half a cm. I do agree they would be extremely similar, nevertheless.
Canson said on 24/Jun/21
@Hyper: I would say the same. He may even be exact on the money 6’5.5” and Bo may be that like Viper said. I don’t rule out 196.5 for both either but Fox would’ve been a bit higher in his prime imho
viper said on 23/Jun/21
Possible Burnham and Fox are the exact same
Hyper said on 22/Jun/21
@Canson

I agree. Though maybe Rick’s larger head might give a shorter impression.

I do think he’s more 6’5.5”-6’6” rather than 6’6”-6’6.5”.
Canson said on 22/Jun/21
@Hyper: very similar. I remember KROC also met Fox and estimated him 196-197 in person. That’s how he looks with Kobe. Maybe best case he was a weak 6’6” a full 197 cm range guy
Hyper said on 21/Jun/21
How do you think Bo Burnham (and say Chuck Connors) would stack up against Rick Fox? Technically and Realistically.
Editor Rob
might be tricky to see much difference in person...assuming Fox is 6ft 6 or just a bit shy of it
Canson said on 10/Jun/21
@Editor Rob: yes but he also said 6’5 while acting. Likely he’s not a full 6’6”. He didn’t look 6’6 with Kobe either. Probably 6’5.5” imho
Canson said on 30/May/21
@Editor Rob: how about a reduction to 6’5.5 or 6’5.75 being you said he didn’t look 6’6” up close?
Editor Rob
He had pulled off near 6ft 6 with others...but also 6ft 5.75 could well be a possible figure to consider.
Canson said on 1/Feb/21
He doesn’t give off a 6’6 impression in the pic above
ChaosControl 6'2 1/2 said on 30/Jan/21
He was on an episode of iZombie, on which his character claimed “you don’t think people would notice a six-seven shooter?” His character, fittingly, was a basketball player, who had been caught throwing games so his friend could win at gambling
recapa said on 18/Jan/21
rob ,wierd question but could he perhaps have gigantism i mean he is very tall and has a very deep voice and his chin looks similar to that of tonny robbins who suffers from gigantism .
Canson said on 16/Jan/21
@Vincent: Rob should reduce him to 6’5.5”. He admitted when he met him in person that he didn’t look the full 6’6”. He said Cudmore and Joshua both gave taller impressions. He looks 6’5.5 with Kobe imho
Canson said on 16/Jan/21
@Vincent: that’s about right. Maybe his peak 6’5.75 at a stretch but 6’5.5 or 6’5 5/8 is better imho
Vincent Caleb said on 4/Jan/21
If Kobe was 6’4.75” then Rick was 6’5.5”.
recapa said on 24/Dec/20
196.5-197cm range for rick.a 6ft5.5 listing would be good.he was like maybe 2cm max taller than 195cm kobe.@Rob,between him and metta both peak under a stadiometere who would you give the edge too.
Canson said on 23/Dec/20
@Editor Rob: but we could agree he doesn’t look 6’6 with him or at any time
Canson said on 5/Dec/20
@Editor Rob: maybe 6’5.5 next to 6’4.75 Kobe
Editor Rob
5.5 at worse
Canson said on 4/Nov/20
@Recapa: agreed
recapa said on 25/Oct/20
197cm peak

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Apr/20
@Canson We wouldn't know when stand up straight for a measurement Rick could still hit 6'5 3/4. Probably is his posture seem quite loose nowadays sometimes look as low as 6'5-6'5 1/4.

@Junior: are we talking a peak Fox or current? In his prime maybe that was possible but he alluded himself to being 6’5” so my guess is maybe 6’5.5” was the better fit for his peak. That’s likely an afternoon height though not morning. He could’ve looked about an inch taller than Kobe though so I don’t rule the 6’5.75 out. Now today it’s hard to say. KROC a former poster said he looked 196-197 in person and Rob himself said he didn’t look the full 6’6” up close. Viper also said he met Fox in his prime and he didn’t look 6’6” either. Maybe he was a weak 6’6” guy peak or a 6’5.5” guy and not sure how much loss

@Mickie: I wonder who’s taller between he and Paul Pierce

Mickie said on 8/Apr/20
6'5.75" is a better fit than 6'6".
Canson said on 20/Feb/20
@Junior: maybe 6’5.75 or 6’5 5/8 peak height and 6’5 3/8-1/2 today. He’s in his 50s so maybe he lost height now
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Feb/20
@Canson If we leave legit 195cm for Mamba then Rick can be both 6'5 1/2 to 6'5 3/4 and this is how they look apart during both of their glory days in the Lakers. Weak 6'6 for sure for Rick.
Canson said on 30/Dec/19
@Junior; based on how he looked next to Kobe 6’5.5 is the max I could buy. Rob also said that he looked noticeably shorter up close than Daniel Cudmore and that Cudmore had less footwear. But Rob also had Cudmore at 6’7” previously and said that Cudmore wouldn’t have been at his afternoon height when he saw him as it was earlier in the day. Possible Cudmore was more 6’6.75 earlier in the day when he met him and that Rob gave him the full 6’7” due to the significant height difference Between them if he wasn’t 100% sure. But back to Rick Fox that’s why Fox claims 6’5 when acting because he’s 6’5 range barefoot even if that means 6’5.5.
Nik said on 1/Nov/19
I love his above comments!
Canson said on 5/Oct/19
@Junior: better chance he’s less than 6’5.5 than more than it
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Oct/19
If Rick Fox is really 6'5 1/2 then Rob have long ago pull him down. Why is Rick still stay 6'6 probably is because he is more 6'5 3/4 to Rob.
Canson said on 20/Jun/19

Rob, do you think Bo Burnham can pull off looking 6’5.5” at times, like Rick Fox?
Editor Rob
Yes,sometimes he could pass for the 5.5 range.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Jan/19
I would have give full 197cm for Rick since 6'5 1/2 was like 196.8-196.9cm, i rule out Rick can look between 197-197.5cm but sometimes pass for 6'6 maybe was in the morning.
Canson said on 20/Oct/18
I’d say very strong 6’5” today. Maybe weak 6’6” peak. I doubt he was ever more than 196.5 or 197 at a low. The guy says 6’5” while actin meaning he isn’t 6’6” and Rob met him and said he didn’t look 6’6 up close. Chances are he’s closer to 6’5” today than 6’6”
Allie said on 25/Aug/18
He’s so handsome imo! He and Vanessa Williams seemed so cute together.

Not buying a full 6’6 though.
Canson said on 11/Aug/18
@Rob: if he claimed 6’5 while ballin that means he must have measured somewhere 6’5 range at some stage
Canson said on 13/Jul/18
@Junior: I still wonder about PG’s measurement. Had they not said he had grown I would say he were 6’7.25 since the .75 is morning and he looks same as Kevin Love. I know Danny granger mentioned once about their heights that one was 6’8 and one 6’9” but didn’t say which was which. They both were listed 6’8 and 6’9” at different times during the pacers careers
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 1/Jul/18
Saw some picture he only look 2" lower than 6'7 3/4 Paul George.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Jun/18
@Canson

Agreed
Canson said on 22/Jun/18
@Christian: he surely doesn’t look 6’6” with Kobe either or Devean George who was measured 6’6.5 (and not sure what time of the day it was when he was measured). Fox looks 6’5 and change similar to you and max maybe 197
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 14/Jun/18
He doesn't look 6'6". Don't know why Rob still has him listed at that when he met him in person and thought he looked about 6'5.5"
Canson said on 14/Jun/18
@Junior: I’m thinking 6’5.5 max and may come down to 6’5 3/8 at a low.

@Rob: I’m surprised you still have him listed 6’6” if AJ was taller in person and AJ is 6’5.75. I’m not sure Fox ever measured 6’6” barefoot at a normal low. In the morning easily but for site purposes weak 6’6” peak max imho. 6’5.5-.75 best case or 6’5.5 flat.

Even with the pic above I get a taller impression from Carmelo Anthony or Paul Pierce and even more so with them next to Kobe vs Fox next to hkm
Editor Rob
I seen more of Joshua though, unfortunately I didn't have as much time seeing Fox up close, hence I am not as sure about him...
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/May/18
I think overall Rick Fox still look 197cm so i would give 6'5 5/8 for him.
Canson said on 26/Apr/18
@Viper: I know Bobby3342 said initially that he was a weak 6’6”. I know one person who has met him and they said 6’5 and change like you did. This guy is a NBA scout (my former AAU coach). He said he didn’t quite look 6’6 but maybe at best 6’5.5. I would put a peak Fox around 197 max maybe just 6’5 3/8-6’5 1/2. He doesn’t edge Kobe by a full inch. But that says more about the players here that they are overlisted. Jordan would never measure 195cm let alone 6’5 at a low. He’s 6’4 3/8-5/8 max at his peak in the afternoon and 6’5”-6’5.25 morning height.
viper said on 22/Apr/18
I met Rick Fox when I was 10 years old. Looking back he didn't give off a 6-6 impression.
Canson said on 21/Apr/18
@Junior: the funniest part is that Rob met him and said that he is under 6’6”.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Apr/18
@Canson It's strange that Rob still put Rick at 6'6 despite we all could see him 2cm max taller than legit 195cm guy like Kobe, just like Boris Kodjoe being about 6'3.5" but get upgrade to 6'4.
5ft10hero said on 8/Apr/18
This man is huge .I encountered the man in a nightclub in miami recently.Noticibally taller then everyone there.He looks like he weighs 240+.Anything lower then 6ft6 is false.He could even be a legit 6ft7,however he had on Dad like nike sneakers when I saw him.I would say 6ft6 1/2-6ft7.
Canson said on 15/Mar/18
@Junior: my guesses 6’4.75 for Kobe (194.945) 6’5 3/8-1/2 maybe for Fox (196.5-197). Remember rob saying he never looked 6’6” when he met him
Canson said on 1/Feb/18
@Junior: that’s a possibility but 6’4.75 looks just as realistic imho. Melo when he stood next to me I saw “up to” 2”. Everyone around us said 1.5-2”. I can come down any day to 193.7-193.9. Best case is I was 193.9 since I wasn’t on my feet as long possibly that day. I’ll give Melo the full 6’6.25 and Kobe 6’4.75 prob. But 6’4 7/8 could be believeable because of how Jordan fares next to him (noticeable diff) like 1cm but also because Jordan may have lost a few mm and just be 194 today
Junior Hernandez said on 1/Feb/18
@Canson That picture wasn't good for comparison. Overall almost 2cm i can see it too. I figure out Kobe might be few mm over 195cm and Rick is more like solid 6'5.5" not over 197cm like you say. Kobe 6'4 7/8 (195.26cm) a bigger chance than just 194.9cm.
Canson said on 23/Dec/17
@Junior: maybe Fox lost height today. I know there’s a camera advantage here but other times he had Kobe by an inch that I’ve seen or close to an inch so prob a “good 2cm” meaning Kobe at 194.945 would make Fox no more than 197 which I believe or could have even been 6’5.5.

Click Here
Canson said on 23/Dec/17
Looking more a strong 6’5 to weak 6’6” today. Wouldn’t go higher than 6’5 5/8 no lower than 6’5 3/8 (196.5/197)
Editor Rob
I'd be a bit surprised if Rick had lost any height, but you never know...a 1/4 inch after a long career in sport isn't out-with the realms of possibility.
Canson said on 11/Dec/17
@Junior: disagree on this one. I see half inch minimimum but can’t see footwear. Maybe Fox is more 6’5 1/4 and not a full 6’5.5. Rob did mention that he was noticeably shorter than Daniel Cudmore with more footwear. Cudmore admitted to being 6’6.5 no guarantee that’s a low but probably is. If cudmore is truly noticeably taller it would make Fox like 6’5 1/4-1/2 prob say if cudmore only has 1/2 or 5/8” footwear but then again maybe rob met him early in the day. But if he didn’t an inch would make Fox 6’6” or a hair more with shoes. Maybe he’s 196.5cm and Kobe 195
Junior said on 10/Dec/17
@Canson

I believe there is only 1cm between Foxx and Kobe in real difference. It's just that Kobe is bald and Fox had a hair more give much taller impression to some people.
Canson said on 18/Nov/17
@Rob: at times i swear he is no taller than Kobe so i agree. I can see 196-196.5 at times just as much as much as 196.5-197
Canson said on 16/Nov/17
@Rob: yea I’m not seeing 6’6” at all. Max 6’5 1/2 with Kobe as that can look near 2cm. Really anywhere from 196-197 like KROC mentioned once which could mean 6’5 1/4-1/2

Click Here
Editor Rob
6ft 5.5 is always a possibility, I mean he is a very tall guy, but a bit like Rory, his proportions don't make him seem as tall.

A guy like Anthony Joshua gives off a taller vibe when walking around than Fox.
Canson said on 22/Oct/17
I think a peak 197-197.5 is good and today 196.5. Rob has said he looked noticeably shorter than cudmore and Joshua with more footwear and less against both respectively. Meaning 6’6.5 cudmore is prob 6’7 or so in shoes Fox prob not much over 6’6 in shoes
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
Weaker 6'6"

198.5-199 out of bed
196.5-197 at his lowest
Some Guy said on 3/Sep/17
Rob, ever thought adding Stephen Gevedon (played Scott Ross in the first season of Oz)? Fox was definitely the tallest of the Emerald City cast and Gevedon was the second tallest. He always seemed at least two inches shorter than Fox. Google lists his height as 194cm (6'4½) which seems legit.
even said on 22/Jul/17
a weak 6'6"
Arby said on 16/Jun/17
6'5-6'6 is right

Canson said on 30/May/17
looks more 197cm 6'5.5
184guy said on 25/May/17
@ROb , isn't fair tô bring Rick down a bit since you said That he looked shorter than Anthony JOSHUA (knowin the footwear etc...)?
Canson said on 6/May/17
@Bobby: you'd give Fox a full 6'6" or 197cm? I would've said 6'5.5 only because he doesn't look much taller than Kobe but maybe you're right.
Canson said on 20/Apr/17
@Rob: agreed that he has chance at. That's in line to with how KROC has him to 196/197. 6'5.5 is how I guess him too
Canson said on 18/Apr/17
@Rob: who would you say is taller in person? Fox or Anthony Joshua?
Editor Rob
Joshua actually, maybe because of a bit more footwear...

Fox has a chance of 6ft 5.5-5.75 range
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@SJH: I can see a current Dr J as 6'5" possibly. He barely looks taller than Jordan these days (maybe 1/2") but he's 70 years old. However a friend of mine met him who is a solid 6'4 judging him next to me and he thought that Doc was a legit 6'6" in the 80s when he met him. Maybe the fro but I saw a pic with them and he looked close to 2" taller but 6'5.5 seems legit for his peak at his lowest
Canson said on 26/Mar/17
@Rampage: I agree prob 199 out of bed 196-197 before bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Mar/17
199-200cm out of bed.

@SJH: I could even go as far as 194.75 evening for Kobe and 196.6 evening for Fox meaning day time 195 and 196.85 respectively
S.J.H said on 23/Mar/17
@Canson

Honestly easier to say between fox and kobe they look 1.5cm apart. Kobe 195cm and fox 196.5cm same as a current julius erving
Canson said on 17/Mar/17
@SJH: id say if it's 1/2" or 5/8" more likely Kobe is 195 and fox 196.5ish (tough to tell a 1/8" diff so could really be 5/8").
Canson said on 11/Mar/17
About 196.5-197
S.J.H said on 17/Jan/17
Rick fox most 0.5" taller than kobe bryant.

Kobe 6'5 , 6'4.75 was big chances of false measurement and c'mon it's 0.25" very possible kobe had loose posture gotten this measurement
Fox 6'5.5

Hes like an 1 inch shorter then kobe hes not 6ft6 he really isnt.Their is a video with him and kobe greeting each other in one of kobe's retirement interviews . Hes like 6ft4.5 and kobe is 6ft5-6ft5 1/2. Bottom line hes not taller then kobe
Andrea said on 10/Mar/16
Rob, why you keep him at 6'6, even if you said he didn't look a big 6'6 up close?
You said he did look shorter than Anthony Joshua in person and Anthony isn't a full 6'6 himself...
He claimed to be 6'7 more than once on his Twitter and, while i'm sure he'd be near that mark in the right pair of shoes, i think 6'5.5 would fit him more!
Editor Rob
if I'm not as certain, maybe it is best to leave a listing as is.6ft 5.5-6 range I think is probably a range he may measure in, rather than 6ft 6-6.5.
Canson said on 7/Jan/16
6'5 and change or 6'5 1/2 looks right. He looks close to an inch taller than Kobe but doesn't look the full 6'6
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 18/Dec/15
Should list him at 6'5.5" or 6'5.75".
Bishop said on 31/Mar/15
Didn't you say he didn't look the full 6'6" in person, Rob?

he could be 6ft 5.5-6, somewhere inside that range.
