@6e: that looks adequate. Maybe up to 6’2.25 for Russ
6e said on 18/Feb/21
Canson I see it as 1.5 inches honestly.Westbrook wears a thick sneaker and it makes him look taller with harden.I have Harden at 6'3.5 and Westbrook around 6'2-.25 at low. The average guess makes me go laugh.

and how many inches is the height difference here rob Click Here ?
Editor Rob
can look almost 2 inches

If you take Harden’s hair off i doubt 2”. They can look 1.25 or 1.5” apart. Looks closer to 1.25. Not to mention hardens head is tilted a bit
Canson said on 15/Feb/21
Beal with Westbrook

Pretty clear if one is taller it’s Beal

Canson said on 14/Feb/21
@Simon L: but with Bradley Beal and James Harden he looks strong 6’2 to weak 6’3 tops. The listed height is ok but I doubt taller and don’t rule out 6’2.25
simon L said on 10/Feb/21
I don't think a downgrade is necessary.

looks around 6'3 with J-cole

can even look over 6'3 with Nipsey Hussle

He generally looks taller now than he did when he was first drafted
I think he grew just a little bit from 6'2.25 to 6'3
Canson said on 6/Feb/21
He needs to be reduced to his pre draft is Beal is a max 6’3” guy
Canson said on 29/Jan/21
He’s not as tall as Bradley Beal who is max 6’3”. Actually can look a full 6’3 on the court (afternoon height)

i have ,em at: 6ft2.25 for westbrook,6ft1.25 for D-rose,6ft1.5 for steph and 6ft1.25 for kyrie.
Canson said on 27/Dec/20
@Junior: the only one I’d say is in the legit 6’2” and over crew is Westbrook
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Dec/20
Kyrie, Derrick Rose, Curry and Westbrook were all occasionally being call small guy in the NBA. I guess from a barefoot average height at just over 6'5 in the NBA may view any players below 6'3 as "short". Strange that four of them would hardly being short if they walk out the street or entered any clubs or bar.
Canson said on 14/Dec/20
@RJT: I intend to go next season for sure. I’m not sure if they’ll have many fans this year lol. But I’m interested in seeing how tall Beal is in person too. I’ve heard one person say he looked maximum 6’3 which can explain why he’s listed 6’3 now. Then I have a close friend who has and said he thought Beal was slightly taller likely via footwear. My friend measured 6’3” flat up until a few years ago. Now he’s 6’2 3/4-7/8 range depending on the day
RJT said on 10/Dec/20

He's now in DC so you may be able to see him in person! And we can also compare him to Beal.
Canson said on 19/Nov/20
Qadir Martin said on 17/Nov/20
Russ is easily 6'4. He was at one of my Nike sponsor tournaments in Cali and we are both the same height. He just had bigger shoulders than me because his shoulders huge.!

That would mean the team under measured him by a bit!

189cm max for russ.
Canson said on 31/Oct/20
@RJT: that’s interesting. Maybe the angle because Harden doesn’t look 6’4” at all next to other guys. I would have Hemsworth edging out Westbrook though and I don’t rule out 6’2 for Russ to be honest but no less.
RJT said on 27/Oct/20

With Harden in better angle pic, Russ look near 2" shorter
Click Here

I've been trying to find a pic with Russ and guy who is legit 6'2.5"/75"barefoot but to no avail unfortunately.
FriedChicken said on 22/Oct/20
The average guess of 6'2 7/8 is too high lol
Canson said on 10/Oct/20
@RJT: then again Melo could’ve been 6’6-6’6.25 range. The people around me told me he looked 1.5-2” taller. I thought it was more 4-5cm. Russ could fall a hair under the 1/4” too. But 1/2” between Russ and Hemsworth like Rob has them looks good. Chris could be a full 190 and Russ 6’2.25” and Liam could be what Rob lists him
RJT said on 9/Oct/20
@Canson @Editor Rob

The more I look at it, that seem closer to 3/4" (2cm) rather than just 1/2" honestly. Pause at 0.2-0.3 mark, Chris' eye level meet Westbrook's eyebrow. From eyes to eyebrow is usually 2cm gap.if Chris is a 6'2.75" guy he should have 5'10 1/8" eyelevel, that makes Westbrook barely 6'2 flat or maybe 1/8" above it. If Chris full 6'3, that makes Westbrook 6'2.25".

I agree 6'2.5" seem too optimistic, the average guess is too tall. Probably cause Westbrook seem taller than other 6'3 listed guys such as Curry, formerly Rose, Irving, Lillard etc.
Canson said on 8/Oct/20
@RJT: that lines up to his pre draft height 6’2.25 which I’ve always advocated he looked. Rob used to have him at that but not anymore. He looks it next to Carmelo Anthony.
RJT said on 7/Oct/20
Westbrook looks 1/2" shorter than Chris Hemsworth who is around 190cm flat
Click Here

Funny thing is at 0.7 the angle makes Westbrook appear bigger
Canson said on 27/Sep/20
@Editor Rob: I’ve always had it at an inch or 1.25”. Harden was part of the 2009 class that measured (confirmed) morning. Westbrook was an afternoon In 2008. He could still be the 6’2.25” Harden 6’3.5” imho
Canson said on 11/Sep/20
@Editor Rob: how much height difference do you see between Harden and Russell Westbrook?

Click Here
Editor Rob
Doesn't seem much over an inch, both raising eyes though.
Canson said on 18/Aug/20
@Editor Rob: how much do you see between Eric Gordon (right of Steph Curry facing the pic) and Russell Westbrook if Russ weren’t tilting his head upward? Gordon measured 6’2” flat and looks it while Russ when said and done may be 1/4” taller.

@RJT: Chauncey Billups also looks shorter than he’s listed. He’s Only 6’1.25 or 6’1.5 himself
Canson said on 17/Aug/20
@RJT: Rob used to have Russ at his pre draft but he gave him 1/4”.
RJT said on 10/Aug/20

Click Here

You're right, 6'2.25 might be better fit for him as Rob usually put someone's near low for height. The way I see it, Russ is solid 6'2.25 guy who can creep to 6'2.5 rather than 6'2.5 guy who can creep to 6'2.75

And you're right too about Curry, he looks visibly shorter next to 6'2 Gordon, for someone to be visibly shorter than the next guy, at least gottba be half inches.

Already post this on Curry's page too so Rob can downgrade Curry.

Hello Rob,what do you think of this picture of westbrook with steph curry?(Click Here picture was taken in 2011,which makes him around 22 years of age.Is it possible to grow at that age ?.Also the footwear is very similar.Speaking of footwear I have noticed that westbrook wears thicker sneaker than curry and a lot of other players,which explain why he looks bigger than his measured height and curry on the court.Rob take a look at these photos ?(Click Here) and (Click Here do you think Rob ?
Editor Rob
In some shots Westbrook seems nearer 6ft 3 than 2
Canson said on 7/Aug/20
Russ has camera advantage with Fallon and likely a footwear advantage being hes likely in Basketball sneaksThat said it’s not 3.75”. He could be what Rob lists him but truthfully I stick with the 6’2.25 That he was drafted at. Looks 6’2.25 next to Carmelo

@ Christian 6'5 3/8

Yeah good point. Most likely stunted growth.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Jul/20
There are a few cases where siblings of the same gender who share the same parents, are nearly a foot apart. But most of them happen where one of them had their height stunted, such as due to a childhood disorder. Look at the Cimorelli sisters, for example. Amy's listed 4'10.5" and Katherine's at 5'9.25"
Joseph177 said on 23/Jul/20
Russell Westbrook's brother is not even 5'6!! He was shorter than their dad(5'8) and mom(Probably a bit under 5'7). Extremely uncommon for that to happen. I would say Russell exceeded genetic expectations and his brother really got an unfair one.
RJT said on 3/Jul/20
Hi Rob, how tall do you think John Wall's barefoot height is? He was measured 6'2 3/4 barefoot back in 2010 NBA draft and 6'4 in shoes but

Next to legit 6'4 barefoot James Harden
Click Here

Next to 6'1 1/2 Kyrie Irving (He seems at least 1.5 inches taller)
Click Here

Next to 6'2 1/4 2008 NBA draft measured Russell Westbrook
Click Here

Shoulder to shoulder with 6'2 Steph Curry (They seem to have the same eyelevel height)
Click Here

John Wall is measured at 6'2 3/4 but don't you think it might be his morning height because he's no taller than now 6'2 1/2 Westbrook?

Wall seems to be 6'2 1/2 yet he's measured at 6'4 in shoes whereas Westbrook is measured only at 6'3 in shoes.
Editor Rob
Around 6ft 2.5 for wall is feasible
Canson said on 4/May/20
@5.9 legit guy: agreed! I have Lebron at 6’7” and there Dame looks 6’. I also have Kemba at 5’11 flat
5.9 legit guy said on 3/May/20
@Canson here is Dame with Lebron James,he is clearly a whole head shorter than him Click Here
Click Here
Here is Dame with 5'11 Kemba Walker,6ft seems just perfect for him Click Here
Here is Lillard with Irving which clearly seems not much taller than him,maybe 1 cm
Click Here
I've done a lot of researches and think I have brought a lot of proofs and good points,I'm waiting for Rob
Canson said on 2/May/20
@5’9 Legit Guy: I can definitely agree on Lillard. I need to see more of Kyrie but I will say that there’s a fair chance he’s not as high as I had him. Lillard for sure is 6’0” range
5.9 legit guy said on 1/May/20
@Canson yes,I think those listings are perfect
And if so are they,it's time to downgrande Kyrie Irving to 6ft 1/2 and Damian Lillard to 6ft flat @Editor Rob what do you think about the pictures that I have put on their sections proving that ? You are a legend,I would like to hear an your opinion
Canson said on 1/May/20
@Big T: he received an “official” measurement of 6’3” from the NBA. Most likely it’s a morning measurement of 6’2.5 or .75 rounded up and he’s around 6’2.25 like he was initially measured. Either way, if he is listed 6’3” in the league, 9.9 out of 10 times he is really 6’3 or less. The NBA doesn’t under list people very often and it won’t happen after they just measured him
Canson said on 1/May/20
@5.9 legit guy: I would say 188-189 and 186-187 for Curry
Big T said on 30/Apr/20
I still can’t understand how tall he was next to 184cm listed TJ Perenara. Like 5.5” taller, just totally dwarfed him.

There are loads of photos of Perenara with various rugby players on his instagram plus he has met Westbrook on multiple occasions. I would say Westbrook lines up with the rugby guys who are 6’4ish. He looks similar to 6’5” listed Jordie Barrett and demonstrably TALLER than 6’5” listed Shannon Frizell, when compared with TJ.

This is one of those cases where different worlds colliding gives me some major dissonance.
5.9 legit guy said on 30/Apr/20
Agree with Robe here
There is no way this guy is shorter than 188 cm. He is almost 1 inch taller than 187 cm Curry

@Monkey Knees: that may be a morning height for Russ

@ vampyr detective

Hi mate, Russ W wears even bigger heeled trainers (sneakers in The US) than 90% of NBA players. You can see them when you next watch him play. His Jordan line had a 1.75 inch heel/cushioned sole. If he is 6ft 2.5/75in, and has those heels - 6ft 4.5in at least. That's why 6ft .75in lillard with his Signature Dames on reaches 6ft 2in. That picture you linked to, doesn't show the strides/leg position of Dame and Russ.
Jean214 said on 14/Feb/20
Russel Westbrook Real height is 6'2.4 (189)
Canson said on 11/Feb/20
That’s because Lillard isn’t as tall as he’s listed. He’s listed 6’2” just like other players such as Jimmy Butler are listed 6’7”. They brought them down 1” just to claim that they measured them. In reality Butler would be well under 6’6” in the afternoon and Lillard probably only 6’0”-6’0.5 tops. Russ is really 6’2.25”
Canson said on 11/Feb/20
6’3.5 in shoes
Spencer said on 10/Feb/20
6'4" in shoes
Vampyr Detective said on 10/Feb/20
How do you explain this height difference here?

Click Here

Between Lilard and Westbrook, I see at least 3-4 inches with posture and camera angle taken into consideration.
Canson said on 20/Jan/20
@Monkey Knees: that may even be a couple hours after waking for Russ vs an hour. He was 6’2.25” at the combine and that may well be his afternoon height. I could buy the full 6’3 out of bed.
Monkey knees said on 9/Jan/20
Westbrook - 6ft 2.5in morning height is spot on.

Lillard, although the superior player, gives almost 1.75in to him, height wise.

I know NBA height listings are still not correct, but I'm still seeing 6ft 4.5in for Russ on sites/IG and 6ft 2.5in for Dame. Is it an NBA thing, or a US thing? Inflating heights?! I'm 5ft 11.75in barefoot, worked at The Moda Centre as kit assistant (glorified cleaner) and am moving back there in 6 months to work admin/online for The Blazers... I've seen so many players listed at 6ft 2in who are my height or shorter - Kemba, Chris Paul etc... It's odd!?
Canson said on 3/Jan/20
Commissioner Silver edges him in two of their pics together (the best pics of them) and possibly has maybe 1/4” less footwear
Canson said on 3/Jan/20
@Shane: honestly watching the game tonight he looks very close in height with Gordon. My guesses are:

Russ 6’2.25 afternoon height (if he really edges Gordon) and 6’3 out of bed
Gordon 6’2” afternoon height 6’2.75 out of bed
Harden 6’3.5 afternoon height 6’4.25 out of bed

Harden appears 1.5” taller than Gordon and about 3 cm or 1.25” on Russ
Canson said on 28/Dec/19
I think the 6’2.25” is fair for him. He’s 6’3 out of bed if that’s the case. If not 6’2 7/8 and 6’2 1/8”
Canson said on 1/Dec/19
I wonder if the measurement was a low
Canson said on 16/Nov/19
He was not measured at 6’1” this year. He’s listed 6’3” which is believable being they take place in the morning. He would get 6’2.75 or 6’2.5 at least in the morning. He’s still a decent 6’2” guy if not 6’2.25 in the afternoon
Canson said on 16/Nov/19
@Endy: Russ is taller than those guys. Russ is a legit 6’2 or 6’2 and change. Those guys are weak 6’2 and 6’1 range. Russ lines up to his draft listing from what I’ve seen 6’2.25 in the afternoon
endy said on 13/Nov/19
he's the same height as d'rose and curry. rose was measured as 6'1 at 2019
Canson said on 7/Nov/19
@Nik: because he’s taller than guys like Curry and Rose

@Viper: the max he looks is his draft measurement
Nik said on 1/Nov/19
Interestingly high average guess!
Canson said on 30/Oct/19
He can’t be 6’5 now if he was just measured this month at 6’2.5-.6’3 in the morning

6-3.5 James Harden here. Click Here

I see 1.5 inches
Shane Gray said on 29/Oct/19
@d'lo @Drp2hrd88 lol. He looked 6'4" to some before because everyone else his height was listed 6'4" in shoes. He is 6'3" barefoot out of bed, tops, and his new listing by nba in socks is 6'3". Hes never been close to 6'5" in shoes and certainly not barefoot. If he was 6'5" barefoot he would have been as tall as everyone else listed 6'6" or 6'7" which is obviously not the case.
Drp2hrd88 said on 29/Oct/19
He has to be at least 6’5 by now. Taking into consideration he was about 19 when he was drafted.
Canson said on 27/Oct/19
He is listed 6’3 in the NBA so he isn’t 6’4”
d'lo said on 26/Oct/19
6'4 and he has grown
Canson said on 17/Oct/19
@Shane: Thanks! My guess for both Harden’s hair is thicker of course.

Harden: 6’4.25 out of bed/6’3.5 afternoon
Russ: 6’3 out of bed/ 6’2.25 afternoon
Shane Gray said on 16/Oct/19
@Canson agree with that 100% on his out of bed and afternoon height.
Shane Gray said on 16/Oct/19
I'm not huge on photo comparisons but the Rocketz 2019 promo photos with Westbrook and Harden should permanently put to bed the ideas of Westbrook being 6'4" without shoes, lol. Lots of fans really believe that. Harden has a strong inch and a half on Westbrook in those photos which matches up well with their combine measurements.
Canson said on 14/Oct/19
6’2.25 afternoon
6’3 out of bed

Damian Lillard was the one who wore lifts in his measurement, not Westbrook.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/19
Rob, who do you think would measure taller, Westbrook or Mehcad Brooks?
Editor Rob
I would expect both need a measurement to discover if one is a fraction taller
Person111 said on 7/Sep/19
Russel got incredibly lucky to grow to 6'3 considering his dad is 5'8 and mom is 5'7, and his brother is only 5'6.
Canson said on 29/Jul/19
@Junior: it could be 2cm between Russ and Curry but not an inch. See Jarrett Jack who is 189ish (prob 188.5-189) in person with Curry and that’s 2cm. Jack and Russ look the same to me. Curry at 6’1.5 I could buy and Russ 6’2-6’2.25 Jack 6’2.25
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Jul/19
@Per Malmar No. Curry is only half inch shorter than Westbrook. Harden is more than 1" taller than Westbrook but not 1.5".
Canson said on 12/Jul/19
He looks exactly how he was initially listed at the pre draft 6’2.25. Maybe dips 1/8” at a low. Looks about 3cm shorter than Harden who is more 6’3.5 or 6’3 3/8 at a low
Canson said on 8/Jul/19
@Onabill: I don’t even think he wears lifts. The other guys who he’s compared to that are younger such as Steph Damian Lillard etc aren’t as tall as they’re listed. They’re morning or morning and then some like Lillard. You put Russ with Kobe or Jordan he doesn’t look to have grown at all. Looks 6’2-6’2.5
Onabill said on 7/Jul/19
I think he wear comfort lifts which gives impression that he has grown so much, Imo he is 6 ft 2 1/2 without shoes, 6 ft 3 3/4 with shoes and 6 ft 4 1/4 in Basketball shoes with comfort lifts
Canson said on 4/Jul/19
Russ next to Melo who is 6’6” in person is almost 4” shorter
Canson said on 4/Jul/19
He did not grow. He’s 6’2.25 like he was before
Canson said on 4/Jul/19
He did not grow
no need to know my name said on 3/Jul/19
he grew a little bit after he was drafted and its very common for nba players to grow while they are in the nba... i think russ is closer to 6 ft 5 with shoes on and closer to 6 ft 4 with out them
Canson said on 26/Jun/19
Steph is 6’1.5 as he measured 6’2” in the morning. Westbrook is at most what Rob lists him but probably what he measures at the combine in 2008 6’2.25. Jarrett Jack has 2cm on Curry and is about the same size as Westbrook. Jack is around 188-189 in person (6’2.5 probably after a couple hours of waking or it was rounded up)
Per Malmar said on 24/Jun/19
He is a good inch taller than Steph and looks close to James Harden, says 6"3.5
Canson said on 5/Jun/19
@Viper: 2008 measurements were afternoon. Not saying he didn’t lay down or something but he looks close to 6’3” at times so I doubt he’s only 6’1.75. I fully agree with 6’2.25 to be honest. He’s noticeably taller than Curry Rose etc and wasn’t even 3” shorter than Jordan when he stood next to him. That was prob a 6cm difference between them. Jordan still looks 194 range and Russ 188 range
viper said on 2/Jun/19
I really doubt he ever hits 6-3 out of bed.

6-2.5 out of bed then down to 6-1.75
viper said on 2/Jun/19
He looks 6-2 at most in a commercial with 6-3 Chris Hemsworth.

He does not look too short close to 7 foot Steven Adams so he is definitely in the 6ft3 range or very solid 6ft2 like me.

@Shane and Rob: a normal low for him is likely 6’2.25 with 6’3” out of bed. I don’t even lose a full inch at a normal low and I’m taller than he is. Same with Christian he loses roughly what I do and he’s an inch taller at 6’5 3/8
Shane said on 20/Mar/19
@Rob so you are suggesting a 6'3" guy shrinking an inch by afternoon which would lead him to possibly shrinking 1.5 inches by nightfall or after a game? I mean it is remotely possibly but its usually guys who are at least 6'7" or more who compress 1.5 inches or more. I just see that as being highly unlikely. Thanks for the feedback and analysis as always.
Editor Rob
All I'm saying is if I give Russell 6ft 2.5, then out of bed he has a chance of 6ft 3.5
Shane said on 20/Mar/19
@Rob how on earth do you have have him at possibly 6'3 1/2 out of bed barefoot? That would mean he hit a good growth spurt after 2 years of college. Highly unlikely. He was measured 6'2 1/4 in afternoon of 2008. That would be a 1.25 inch compression by afternoon so basically you are suggesting he could compress up to a good 1.75 inches by nightfall which would be super rare for a 6'3" guy to do. 6'3" out of bed may be possible as 3/4" compression by afternoon is certainly possible. Some do that.
Editor Rob
If he's 6ft 2.5 then he might hit 6ft 3.5 out of bed.
Canson said on 19/Mar/19
That’s because lillard isn’t 6’3”. Russ is over 2” shorter than 6’4.75 Kobe Bryant
Sath Verdik said on 18/Mar/19
He looks like 6'5 bruh. If you see his picture besides Lillard. Now I'm thinking this website is a joke
Luca said on 16/Mar/19
@Canson who were you talking with when you said "you d prob edge him by half inch"? To me or viper?
Canson said on 9/Mar/19
@Viper: that may be his extreme low. But I’d say a normal low is likelier to be 6’2/6’2.25 than 6’2.5 or 6’3”. Out of bed prob 6’3 and 6’2.25 at a low 6’2 extreme low. You’d prob edge him by half inch
viper said on 6/Mar/19
He only looks 6-2
Luca said on 1/Mar/19
So rob,after all, what is your guess on russel's absolute lowest ever recorded,at night after a bball match?
Editor Rob
could still fall to 6ft 2.25
Luca said on 17/Feb/19
Dear Rob,excuse me if I m writing a bit on this page,but I d really like to know your opinion about russ,since he s one of my favourite sportsmen.
As I wrote below I measure about 191.25 cm out of bed,and I am a hair over 189 cm at night.
Do you think that me and russell could be height twin? If not,who do you think would slightly edge the other?
Sorry if I'm asking again,but I'd really appreciate to know your thoughts about it,Rob.
Editor Rob
You could be...I think if you photographed barefoot together, most people would struggle to tell you apart, unless you had a very huge head or small head.

Dear rob,excuse me for the question,but I guarantee that this is the last one:Do you think that Russel has grown since his draft mesurement?
Here is a pic of the draft day,where he was almost 20,and he looks a good inch shorter than the 191 cm measured oj Mayo

Click Here

What do you think about it?
Editor Rob
Yeah he seems like he might be near 188-189 range at most there, but maybe he has lost a fraction just going a bit wider on his stance, it might knock a little bit off him.
Luca said on 3/Feb/19
Dear rob what is your guess on russels out of bed/absolute lowest height?

In addition to that what do you think of these pics next to djokovic and ronaldo?

Editor Rob
Over 6ft 3 out of bed looks likely, maybe 6ft 3.5. With Ronaldo he looks no less than 189cm range, although with Novak the angles and postures are a bit more tricky.
Canson 194 said on 20/Jan/19
@Christian: the most I could buy seeing him next to Caron Butler or Carmelo Anthony is 189cm. But I think 6’2.25 is spot on. They mentioned 2008 pre drafts were afternoon measurements. That’s not to say that all guys measured at a low but he looks like he’s close to that on the court. He looks roughly the same size as Jarrett Jack as well
Luca said on 19/Jan/19
Dear Rob,whats your thought about this video of russell next to jimmy fallon?

I measure about 191.25 cm out of bed and a hair over 189 cm before bed ... could i be russel s height twin?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Jan/19

He was measured at 6'2.25" or 188.6cm, so no.
Canson said on 11/Jan/19
@Junior: they say 08 was PM and 09 was AM. I think 189 is appropriate tho although it’s max I could buy since he and Rose are the only two of the contemporaries at PG that look their barefoot heights. 6’2.25 and 6’1.5 imho. The others like Curry and Lillard etc are morning and a bit off for lillard.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Jan/19
If Westbrook is 189cm at his low then he would have grow 1/2 taller since drafted measurement at 6'2.25" which is an A.M height. Honestly sometimes he can pull off 6'2 3/4 other time doe look like 6'2 1/2 is believable. I won't go back my previous at 6'2 guessing it seem too low. Maybe 6'2.25" for his lowest measurement.
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
@Viper: I haven’t seen many that are.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/19
190cm is a strong possibility
viper said on 9/Jan/19
Not many 6-2 guys are size 15. I'd say it is
PD 218 said on 8/Jan/19
Viper, well talking about shoe size, it really isn't gigantic. I have a few friends in my grade 12 that are 6'1 to 6'3 in height and have shoe sizes of 15 or 16. Me myself am 5'9 and have size 11
Canson-6'4 3/8 said on 27/Dec/18
@Viper: I think the original listing looked fine as it matched the ore draft. 6’2.5 while not a crazy estimate, may not be the best fit.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Dec/18

6'2.25" but I'm not so sure about just 6'2".
viper said on 25/Dec/18
Physically he looks no taller than a 6-2 guy like Geno Smith. Many on here would argue Geno is taller.

He looks 6-2 max with Kobe.
miller said on 23/Dec/18
he looks 5 cm taller than 185 cristiano Ronaldo
Canson said on 22/Dec/18
@Rob: at times he can look 6’2 to be honest. While others maybe 6’2.5-.75. I think the original listing was adequate enough being it may not have been a low to begin with and the extra 1/4” growth would still fit
Editor Rob
From all I've seen, I think a full 189 isn't unreasonable.
Joao Pedro said on 20/Dec/18
Rob, he seems to have grown a couple of centimeters since he entered to the league. Nowadays he looks taller and overall physically bigger than 6ft 2,75 measured at the combine John Wall. Wall who is listed at 6ft 4 and 210 pounds by the NBA. My guess is that he wakes up at around 6ft 3,5 and goes to bed at around 6ft 2,75 (on easy days) and on a game day he goes to bed at worst at 6ft 2,5. What are your thoughts about it Rob?
Editor Rob
At times he has looked close to 190cm, so it's not impossible. I think the 2.5 is probably the low range he generally seems to look.
viper said on 10/Dec/18
Westbrook wears size 15 shoes.

Gigantic for a 6-2 guy.
viper said on 10/Dec/18
Both Westbrook and Curry were listed 6-2 in high school. Click Here

Westbrook is not much taller than he measured, he was 6’2.25 and looks That with others on the court. I can’t see above 189cm
Big T said on 27/Nov/18
I am really struggling to comprehend this photo of Westbrook with 6’ 1/2” listed TJ Perenara

Click Here

Westbrook only looks 6” shorter than Steven Adams (listed 7 foot, apparently measured 6’ 10.75”) and he’s at LEAST 5” taller than Perenara. Either way, it’s consistent with Russ being about 6’5!

If you go through the 3 photos in the sequence, TJ looks pretty consistently 5” shorter and the most I can see between Adams and Westbrook is 7”, and that’s generous to Adams

The only wildcard is that Westbrook’s shoes look enormous. Obviously he isn’t balling in lifts, but maybe he wears unusually heavily padded/cushioned shoes?

Looking through Perenara’s other photos, he’s obviously overlisted but I can’t see him under 5’10”. I guess at a stretch Westbrook might be 4.5” taller with a big footwear advantage, and Adams is just a really tall guy with bad posture?
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@James: that’s the most I could give him too. Lowest maybe 188-188.5. Doubt he’s under a full 6’2” if not a hair over perhaps even at a low. 6’2.25 is very possible
James-186cm said on 24/Nov/18
Maybe 6’2.25”
James-186cm said on 24/Nov/18
IMO a solid 189cm guy
Canson said on 18/Nov/18
@Junior: I’d put Harden no higher than 6’3.5 maybe 6’3 3/8 and Russ 6’2-6’2.25
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Nov/18
@Ian555 Harden is 6'4 or lower not 6'5 and Westbrook is max 1.5" shorter not same height never was same height as Harden.
Canson said on 16/Nov/18
Harden was measured 6’4 not 6’5.
Ian555 said on 13/Nov/18
Favorite basketball player. Rob do you think he grew an inch since the 2008 draft camp because in sneakers he looks the same height as 6’ 5” James Harden?
Editor Rob
It was possible he gained a he could look taller than his measured height.
Canson said on 30/Oct/18
I believe the 6’10” with shoes that he claimed. However a strong 6’10” more than likely. 6’11” in the morning in shoes easily
Canson said on 7/Oct/18
@Legit 6’2: he measured in at 6’2.25. Not 6’2.75.
Legit 6'2 said on 5/Oct/18
6ft 2 and 3/4 atleast
Very close to 6ft 3,he could claim that and still being fine
Slightly taller than Stephen Curry
Canson said on 4/Oct/18
@Makks and Rob: Booker’s barefoot measurement was supposedly 6’4 1/2 when he was drafted. I have a hard time believing that. He honestly looks sub 6’4 at times but if Rob were to list him here, a solid 6’4” may be a better fit and we could argue from there especially since a guy measuring around that 6’4.5 mark very early in the morning is going to be around 6’4” afternoon. I think he looks 6’3.5-.6’4 really (at times)
Makks said on 28/Sep/18
Click Here: ROB how much do you think it's tall DEVIN BOOKER? He is Listed ad 6 ft 6 .
Editor Rob
6ft 6 barefoot I don't think he looks.
Canson said on 9/Sep/18
@Junior: it specifies that 08 combined was afternoon and went to morning in 09. That doesn’t mean Russ measured at a low but he looks similar to Carmelo Anthony in terms of measurement as Melo looked within 1/4” of his when I met him. I suspect that Russ could be as tall as 6’2.25 but no less than 6’2”. He’s got Mo Cheeks in the pic I posted but Cheeks was listed 6’1” meaning prob not
Canson said on 7/Sep/18
@Junior: I think you may be right. Mo Cheeks is not over 6’0” and that’s hardly 2” between them. Goes to show that guys like Damian Lillard aren’t as tall as advertised. One guy posted here that Lillard is the same height as he is (5’11.5). They also claimed to have measured Derek Fisher 6’1.75 and he’s not over 6’0” either maybe even 5’11” range too
Canson said on 7/Sep/18
Looks max 6’2 with 6’0” (listed 6’1”) Maurice Cheeks

6’2.5 is too much. His 6’3” that he claims is in shoes

Click Here
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Sep/18
Go by logic. 6-7am measurement at 6'2 1/4 Russ should be 6'1.75" lowest but he grew a 1/4 so a solid 6'2 at low for Russ. Curry i could believe 6'1 1/2 now. Someone claim Damian Lillard is only 5'11 1/2 on Stephen Curry page funny that is will leave Curry and Russ both 6'0 and 6'0 1/2.
Animus said on 12/Aug/18
Odell Beckham can get up there and dunk with the best of them--he's 181cm and his (standing) vert at the NFL combine was 38½ inches.

There are plenty of guys substantially shorter than Westbrook that can dunk in impressive fashion. I do know what you mean, though. Westbrook does dunk with unusual ferocity. Having just watched a few of his dunks, he seems to sling his arm from way back and the ball therefore travels a tremendous distance at high speed before it's dunked. Michael Jordan didn't tend to do this, although he was every bit the leaper that Russ is. Dominique Wilkins was famous for slamming the ball with the same kind of power, but he was about 4in taller than Russ and it's a very different visual when a 6'2½ guy does it.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Jul/18

He's just a very skilled player. I've seen sub-6'0" guys dunk like crazy too.
Canson said on 24/Jul/18
Well just because he can dunk doesn’t mean he’s not 6’2”. Have you seen Spud Webb or Isaiah Thomas or Allen Iverson or Dee Brown? All of them are shorter than Russ and had serious hops and Russ is 6’2 and change barefoot
SbsbababBoston said on 24/Jul/18
Their is no way he 6ft 2. Even if he has higher vert then most 6ft 2 guys, their is no way a 6ft 2 guy can dunk the way he dunks.
Canson said on 3/Jul/18
@Viper: I doubt he’s taller tho. Maybe similar
viper said on 2/Jul/18
He is guessed higher than Shawne Merriman
Canson said on 29/Jun/18
I’m still doubting Russ Grew. It’s more likely that he was an afternoon height in 2008 and he didn’t lay down prior to like someone like Kevin Love prob did. It’s more that some of the newer players like Lillard or Curry or Wall just aren’t as tall as they are listed. I know people who’ve met Wall (I’m from and live in DC) and Wall is 6’1.5-6’2” in person not 6’2.75

SammyBoi said on 9/Jun/18
Rob can you add a page for Anthony Davis?
Canson said on 9/Jun/18
I think the highest I can see for Russ is what he’s listed by Rob here. I could also buy him being 6’2.25 at a low like he was when drafted
Skiipp said on 4/Jun/18
Ronaldo is a solid 6'1 throughout the day, and Russ got comfortably 2-2.5 inches over him. Given Ronaldo was probably in casual shoes and Russ was in sneakers, I'll give Russ 6'2.75-6'3.
Canson said on 31/May/18
Lillard looks well below 6’3” with almost anyone. Kloss is 6’1-6’1.5 and is taller than he is
6feettallman said on 30/May/18
If Russel Westbrook is only 6-2 and half then how tall do you guys think Damian Lillard is ?? Russel tower over him even though both are listed as 6-3
There’s no way Damian is anywhere close to 6-3
He looks even struggling to hit 6 feet tall
Lkk said on 24/May/18
6'2 at worst
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/May/18
I always felt Brandon Routh and Westbrook are close in height. Nice upgrade!
Canson said on 8/May/18
@EddieMoney: Russ would be 6’3.5 in shoes or a touch higher which is why SAS calls him 6’4”. I can see Russ and Oladipo being similar in height but because Oladipo was measured at that In the morning whereas Russ was measured in the afternoon in 2008. They began morning measurements in 2009. Also have to figure if Oladipo really was only say 6’3.05-.1 they would likely bump him to 1/4” because the NBA doesn’t do 1/8” increments like the NFL. It’s possible Oladipo is down closer to 6’2.5 or .75 In the afternoon and at that rate he would look close in height with Russ whether he’s 6’2.25 (like he was listed when drafted) or 6’2.5 like he is here
EddieMoney said on 6/May/18
Westbrook looks almost exact same height, might be even taller than the 6'3.25 measured Victor Oladipo. Stephen Smith adamantly stated that Westbrook is 6'4, and he has stood next to him, when someone commented on air that Westbrook is 6'2.
I would say Westbrook might be 6'3.5
Canson said on 30/Apr/18
@Johnson: I agree with Shane that he slouches but agree with you on his height. I see him as no taller than maybe 6’2.5 barefoot if that. Definitely not 6’4
Johnson said on 29/Apr/18
@Shane no way Rubio is measured 6'4 if he is not in sneakers when he claimed himself 1.90 in centimetres
Canson said on 28/Apr/18
@Shane: I feel you lol! As far as Rubio however, that’s interesting! I never noticed the slouching. He may actually be taller than Rose if that’s the case. Rose measuring 6’1.5 is likely a normal low, meaning before an extreme low kicks in. He would easily be 6’2” out of bed if he measures that but 2008 measurements were in the afternoon. I’m not sure about Rubio now but to me he doesn’t look taller than Rose
Shane said on 27/Apr/18
@Canson: Rubio slouches a lot. I know it seems hard to believe, but many insist he's been measured at or near 6'4" barefoot and 6'5" in shoes. If so, no way he dips under 6'2". Anyhow, I will leave your morning height comments alone lol as we will never agree on that point my friend haha.
Canson said on 23/Apr/18
@Johnson: fair enough. If your database is as flawed as your logic then I could see why you overestimate people
Johnson said on 23/Apr/18
The hour of Curry's tweet is 2.01 pm in the capture I have. He is just telling people about the journey he had that morning

He says: up at 6.30 getting tested...

I had no idea about how they did for draft heights I just said my opinion how he looks with other people and that is enough

Then I did read about the difference of hours 2008 and 2009 but I have seen enough to give freely my predictions about players and I don't think they all grew up

But I have a database of footballers and basketball players with pics and information

Get a life my friend no te ciegues y dejame en paz.
Canson194cm said on 22/Apr/18
My guesses on the point guards of today (at their afternoon heights)

Derrick Rose: 6’1.5
Kyrie 6’1.25-.5
Curry 6’1.5
Russ 6’2.25
Lillard 6’0.75
Rubio 6’1-6’1.5
CP3 5’11
Conley 5’11
Wall 6’1.75
Lonzo 6’4.25-.5
Isaiah 5’8-5’8.25
Canson194cm said on 22/Apr/18
@Johnson: Lebron would measure that at some point in the day. Don’t know if or think that that would be a low, however being that he measured 6’7.25, he claimed 6’6” before, and is not as tall as Love or Boozer or Tristan Thompson. Nonetheless, he would measure it. However, your comment below contradicts your statements you have made over the years. I have seen previous comments of yours and your Instagram. You are saying that I am or someone else is wrong when we assess heights at a low. In reality, you use a different standard than Celebheights which assesses people at an afternoon height. In addition, you assume everyone grows. Many of the basketball players, especially those measured 2009 or later, are measured an hour out of bed which is 3/8-1/2” above your afternoon height. If you haven’t realized yet, Rob assesses people at an afternoon height and that Is much more accurate than a height 1 hour out of bed like you assess. That’s the standard here on Celebheights. You guessed Steph Curry at 189 when he measured 188 an hour or less out of bed so that means he’s not that tall. And it’s one hour as the NBA has reported that heights are measured in the 6am hour evidenced by Blake Griffin and the NFL as well evidenced in an article from 2006 which says that it was that early in the AM. But you say everyone grew then make excuses such as they only did it for one year then reverted back to later in the day. In addition what you said about Curry “tweeting from his hotel room”. Troll may be a bit harsh because you’re entitled to your opinion and you’re a nice guy but common sense is common sense. I could see maybe one or two players out of 10 growing after a pre draft but it’s not likely that all of them did which is what you tend to believe. Then you also mentioned once that Ibrahimovic’s 194 measurement can’t be taken seriously because we could not hear all of the digits. True but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s 194 range meaning he would not be any taller than that. The only argument is that he could be less depending on when he actually measured (morning or afternoon).
Johnson said on 21/Apr/18
Plus. When I give predictions I do not mean evening lows

Lows are tricky and they do not work out the same for all people

Everyone is free to give predictions when they want. Rob is the webmaster I don't think that they urge the posters to give predictions at the typical lowest. I read the rules and he does not say: the users must say predictions at low.
Canson said on 20/Apr/18
@Christian: this is not the best pic because some aren’t standing straight but Even here Rose is not as tall as Russ lol. Russ would have to be about 6’3.5 or .75 to make Rose 6’2.75 lol. Kevin Love is standing further ahead of Russ but it wouldn’t surprise me if Love is only a strong 6’7 next to them. Likely he can get 6’7.5 if they all aligned properly but Russ prob 6’2.25ish and Rose 6’1.5 looks right still. Love is actually shorter than Tristan Thompson in pics. The latter I can believe may have grown a touch but not Love

Click Here
Canson said on 20/Apr/18
@Christian: that was well said! The funniest part is you have someone saying players grew and some of them were morning heights to begin with. It’s also funny that people don’t accept that a player can actually be well below a mark (Dwayne Wade comes to mind) and accept that a player is taller than they’re listed lol. Considering that the NBA measures its players annually, Rose would likely be listed 6’4” by now and Lebron 6’9” lol. They make adjustments during the year or at the beginning of the year. Gilbert Arenas was listed 6’3” at one point then later 6’4. Wall I believe was listed 6’3” then was bumped to 6’4” when he played with Arenas the first half of his rookie year and has remained the same ever since. Paul Pierce is a rare example. He was listed 6’6” when he first came in and likely is that amount barefoot. This may be because Boston had Ron Mercer and Antoine Walker and didn’t know where Pierce would fit in (would he be 2 or 3?). He was bumped to 6’7” when he became a full time 3 just like Vince Carter who is easily 1” shorter than Pierce was downgraded from 6’7 to 6’6” when he became exclusively a 2 guard in Toronto. Ditto for Kobe after Eddie Jones left and he was the full time 2 guard.
Canson said on 20/Apr/18
@Johnson: yes just like you were forcing your opinion of a 6’2.75 Derrick Rose on me as well. So I didn’t think like you there. And you saying Dillon is the “most common sense guy” because he sees your prediction and follows your methods of upgrading players just shows the hypocrisy with your last statement
Johnson said on 20/Apr/18
Lebron uses very thick sneakers.
I would list him around 201.5
Johnson said on 20/Apr/18
The guy with common sense here about basketball players is Dillon. Just ask Dillon he knows my exact prediction and my database of figures and pictures and what I give nowadays.

Most of people here have some kind of complex because they like to insult everybody else who do not think like them. They should grow up these things about predicting heights is just a game. A silly game. No money, no honour involved.

Who do not know this is not worth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Apr/18
Rob, what made you upgrade him?

Nothing wrong with that by the way, he can pull this off
Editor Rob
He looks often enough nearer a solid 189 than a weak one.
Canson said on 19/Apr/18
@Viper: Russ may have grown but it’s no higher than what Rob has him listed here. Even this seems high assuming Carmelo Anthony is a full 6’6.25 at a low. He may be a hair below as I was told by 5 people 1.5-2” difference. Nevertheless, Melo would still measure 6’6.25 near a low and the NBA doesn’t do 1/8” increments so he could’ve even been 6’6.05-.1 and been rounded up to that if it were a low. I’d bet money though that he isn’t less than a full 6’6” at a low and looked more along the lines of 198.5ish imho
Canson said on 19/Apr/18
@Viper: Merriman needs a professional measurement in my opinion. I simply don’t agree with 6’4 3/8. Rob is the professional of course. I guarantee you that if Rob were to stand next to him that Merriman would no longer be listed 6’4” here. Even if Rob were generous it wouldn’t be higher than 6’3 on this site.
Johnson said on 19/Apr/18
my predictions are just what I believe, let the people believe what they want, they are not facts, they are opinions

I was the first one who predicted 1,72 for Coutinho before measuring him, the day arrived, the video measuring and he marked 171,9. He breathed in and he market 172.2. So I just ask a little bit of respect for the users

Call a troll a person like me whose database of celebs of basketball/football players shows that are normally under the official listed height???

That is nonsense
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 19/Apr/18

Facts should always outweigh opinions though. For example, despite Johnson saying that Derrick Rose's 6'2.75", it's a fact that he was measured 6'1.5" so we know he's not taller than that. Same thing with Lebron, he was measured 6'7.25" so 6'8" is out of the question.
Editor Rob
Unless you are of the opinion - like Johnson - that they grew a bit taller. He seems to believe that, though yourself and others (myself included) don't hold that same opinion.
Canson said on 18/Apr/18
@Christian: most of what Johnson does stems from his beliefs that soccer players are a certain height by claiming to speak with the clubs and get official data. He swears by them whether they are morning heights or even embellished. Case and point was Griezzman with Derrick Rose. He made Rose 6’2.75 even trying to tell me that he’s taller than Kirk hinrich once when he’s shorter. Not to mention put Rose next to Curry (proven to be a morning height and likely 6’1.5 as well) or Westbrook or any others and he looks 6’1.5 at best. Coincidentally 2008 was an afternoon measurement as well which is the way Celebheights bases heights. But if you see the claims for MJ 6’5.5, Kobe 196.4cm, Lebron 203, Melo 200, Durant 208, Russ a full 6’3” Rose 6’2.75 it is beyond laughable. One player or perhaps two may grow but that’s 7 players I just named. Yet when it comes to women he often points out that they aren’t as tall as they’re listed. He was right about Maria Taylor I’ll give him that much at least
Canson said on 18/Apr/18
@Christian: thanks! And if logic were there I could see it but it’s not. He simply uses that as his go to for everything. He was doing that since he came on this site. Maybe Russ grew but if he did it’s no higher than Rob has him listed but to be honest I could still see 6’2.25. I see him next to Victor Oladipo and he was measured 6!3.25 in the morning. Russ was afternoon in 08. The tallest I could see for Oladipo is 6’2.75 in the afternoon or even 6’2 5/8 if that was rounded up from 6’3 1/8 to 1/4. He can look shorter than Russ but taller on other occasions or exact wth him for reference but hard to tell with them as close in height as they are. But now I can see why some say he’s 6’4/6’5 because he’s only prob a fraction shorter than a 6’5” listed guy (who’s under 6’3 just like Deangelo Russell lol)

@Rob: I don’t know about that. Claiming Derrick Rose grew to 6’2.75 is kinda crazy and inflating everyone else with him along with the site you mentioned.
viper said on 18/Apr/18
Rob, and that's why Shawne Merriman did not grow an inch at 21 from his listed 6-3.

He was listed 6-4 in high school

Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 18/Apr/18

This isn't a matter of opinions, but facts. The fact is, these basketball players have measured data of their heights yet Johnson tries to make them taller by making excuses like they grew. I can't see Johnson being anything other than a fanatic for these players or a troll at this point. If these players didn't have records of their measured heights anywhere then I can respect Johnson's opinions, but this isn't the case here.
Editor Rob

I think for NFL, it's going to be a far far smaller amount as most are 20-22 range when they get measured...but with NBA, some guys at 18-19 may well have gained a little more in 19-21 range. It's going to be a small minority of course.

As for Johnson, well he's entitled to his estimates like everybody. I don't agree with a lot of them, but I can see how he might arrive at his own conclusions.

There was a real 'downgrading troll' who, like Johnson, had his own site and was throwing up a lot of daft listings like Tom Cruise 5ft 4, Jamie Foxx 5ft 7, George Clooney at 5ft 8, Sean Patrick Flanery 5ft 9, Hayden Christensen 5ft 10...Now that is a real height troll!

When you go beyond the reasonable range a celebrity might be, towards the silly range, you enter the category of being a height-troll.

But a caveat - sometimes we shouldn't be quick to dismiss a lack of knowledge about celebrities or how height can change in photos as an attempt at trolling.

@Chase: I can’t see the footwear with Renaldo and Russ. Without that it’s impossible to tell. As for players growing it really doesn’t happen very often. That’s the “Johnson’s Digest” talking there. Lol Derrick Rose at 6’2.75 when we have a poster here named Max who met him and said 6’1.5 is precisely what he is and Melo is at best 4.5-5” taller. Of course they can grow but I’ve heard Johnson say at least 7 or 8 NBA players grew? What’s the odds of that using common sense? Lmfao!!

@Johnson: common sense meaning that most people don’t grow beyond 18. You’re the same one who said that Derrick Rose is 190cm (6’2.75) and that Carmelo is 6’6.75 and that Kobe was 196.4cm (his wife measured him 6’4.75) and that Lebron was 203 that MJ was 6’5.5 etc. you inflate everyone just to keep your favorite soccer players a certain height then make excuses like “he grew up”. You are a troll honestly. It’s funny that I am not the only one who has said that about you. Everyone else such as Ma James etc have seen you do that and agree that’s how you are. Most guys even measured at 20 you still inflate. So I guess In keeping with your silliness, Amare Stoudemire and Chauncey Billups also grew? Really lol? Gain some common sense and stop being silly, Johnson

The thing is, there will be some ballers who are nearly 19 when measured and did gain a bit more. It's a minority though, but Russell could be one of them.

There's always going to be disagreements, but I'm not sure we should call these differing opinions people have as outright trolling.
Johnson said on 16/Apr/18
@Chase I stopped commenting here. These threads are guarded by one guy and all his predictions are based on Carmelo Anthony and how he appears with others

Not pictures prooving that meeting.

Just guide yourself with common sense not draft heights at 18.
Canson said on 15/Apr/18
@Chase: in addition to what I said before, Curry being around 6’1.5 would put Russ max where Rob has him, but I could go with 6’2.25 just as easily since he looks 3” shorter than Butler and 4” shorter than Melo. Both of the latter would likely be that at best and could be 1/8” less or so
Canson said on 15/Apr/18
@Chase: I don’t believe Renaldo is that short, that’s correct. Steph Curry, however, is not a true 6’2”. On Celebheights, we go by afternoon and evening heights not morning. Beginning in 2009 which was the year he was drafted ironically, they began measuring players first thing out of bed. See the article below. In addition, Curry tweeted at 630 am that he was 6’2” and had just measured. Remember in the NBA they don’t do 1/8” increments so Curry could’ve been slightly over 6’1.75 when he measured and given 6’2”. Even if not he could’ve been 6’1.5 at a low which is how he looks usually. Russell Westbrook was drafted in 2008 when it was still an afternoon combine, which is why he looks taller than most other 6’3” listed guys that came after him. He even edges out Rose but because he is, in fact, taller than Rose
Chase said on 13/Apr/18
@Canson Maybe lebron and Carmelo didn’t grow after 18-19, but it still doesn’t make sense why he looks 2 inches taller than Ronaldo, unless you think he is only 6 foot. Look at him next to 6’2 Stephen Curry. You think they are the same height?Click Here
Canson said on 13/Apr/18
@Viper: he’s taller than Curry. Compare to Carmelo Anthony who I have met and is a legit 6’6” minimum he’s aboit 4” shorter. Russ was measured in the afternoon while Curry in the early morning in 09. While I don’t agree with Rob’s upgrade, I do agree that he was the height he was originally listed here from his pre draft measurement (6’2.25)
viper said on 13/Apr/18
IMO he physically looks shorter than Stephen Curry.
Canson said on 12/Apr/18
@Chase: most people don’t grow once they hit 18-19 some even sooner. I’ve never met Lebron but I have met Carmelo and he’s a legit 6’6 maybe a strong 6’6 at best. He was 1.5-2” taller than me. I’ve also balled with and have seen Caron Butler off the court and he is a pre draft 6’5.25 and looked around 196cm in person (at very most an inch taller than me). I’m 6’4 1/4 barefoot. If you look at Russ with either guy he looks his pre draft height. IMHO the upgrade to 6’2.5 was unnecessary
Chase said on 12/Apr/18
I don’t get it. He looks 2 inches taller than Ronaldo who is a confirmed 6’1. You can’t compare him to players like lebron and Carmelo who got measured when they were young, because it is possible that they grew to. Ronaldo was measured after his growth plates closed.
Canson said on 29/Mar/18
I think a normal day without playing ball

Out of bed 6’2 7/8-6’3
Before bed 6’2 1/8 perhaps 6’2.25
Canson said on 29/Mar/18
@Shane: well said about all of them! And I’ve played against Delonte West that’s about right for him. He was about 3 inches shorter than me last time I saw him. Maybe 6’1-6’1.5 range. But was listed 6’4 and 6’3 when he played at Roosevelt in high school when I played him. Funny Eddie Basden who played with him in high school was my height (I was about a flat 6’4 in high school and listed 6’5 like I was) yet he was way taller than West. I think Russ at a low would be that height 6’2.25 but maybe a game 6’2 flat would be extreme for him. You’re absolutely right that he looks taller because of his build and also because he is legitimately over 6’2” on a normal low whereas a lot of the others like Rose and Curry are probably not. They are both 6’2 or so out of bed tho imho. Damian lillard looks even shorter than them. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is sub 6’1” In the afternoon on even a normal day. I have a hard time believing 6’1.75 for him honestly. That seems high even for a morning height. I would’ve thought 6’1.5 and 6’0.75 as out of bed and the afternoon next to Karlie Kloss whereas Curry and Rose and even Kyrie could be 6’2-6’2.25 and 6’1.25-.5 (maybe more toward the latter) on a day where they don’t play
Shane said on 28/Mar/18
@Rob: I think he's very maximum low is 6'2" 1/4 after a game barefoot. He measured that in afternoon at predraft camp and not after a game so I am confident he could go as low as 6'2" flat If not slightly under. I believe he just looks very tall because he is a solid 1/2 inch to even an inch taller than several nba guards listed at same height, including Kyrie Irving and especially Damian Lillard or former players like Steve Nash. Westbrook has likely over an inch on the likes or Lillard and Nash. 1/2 inch plus over the likes of Curry.
Shane said on 28/Mar/18
@Canson: Westbrook would have likely measured 6'2" 1/2 to possibly 6'2" 3/4 now with the 630 am measurements they do. In other words, he would almost assuredly be listed 6'4" (shoe height). He is taller than some nba players listed at 6'4" including the Rockets Gordon who is 6'2" flat barefoot. Delonte West measured 6'1" 1/2 barefoot but was very generously listed at 6'4" in college and most of his NBA career.
Canson said on 13/Mar/18
As listed last year they measured in the afternoon. Always a possibility he grew to 6’2.5 but always a chance he is dead on 6’2.25 which he looks. And 6’3 out of bed. Definitely no less than 6’2.25
Canson said on 24/Feb/18
@Alec289: I agree and I believe Kyrie is his listed height here 6’1.5.
Luca said on 23/Feb/18
Dear Rob,what's his Absolute lowest height?
Editor Rob
There's a decent argument he might be 6ft 2.5 range, I won't rule that out, 2.25 seems like an absolute low after a 2-hour game of ball!
Alec289 said on 20/Feb/18
@Canson looking at the all star game and videos on the all star game of Russell Westbrook next to Kyrie Irving and KD I barley see a height difference between Kyrie and Russell I think Canson is right about Russ being 6’2.25 I see barley a difference between kyrie who really looks 6’1.5 next to Russ.
Canson said on 19/Feb/18
@Johnnyboy: renaldo may be ok but Harden definitely needs one. That’s a clear as day morning height
johnnyboy69 said on 18/Feb/18
Man idk actually, the more I look at it the 1/4 is probably right for his evening height. Maybe Ronaldo needs a downgrade to 6'0.75 and Harden down to 6'3.5
Canson said on 18/Feb/18
Russ is not as tall as Adam Silver.
johnnyboy69 said on 17/Feb/18
needs a bump to 2 3/4 Imo. Taller than ronaldo by 2 inches and shorter than Harden by about 1
Alec28 said on 13/Feb/18
@Rob give Russel and upgrade to 6’2.75 he’s the same height as Adam silver who is listed at 190cm
Canson said on 5/Feb/18
@Christian: yup he’s an afternoon measurement. And people inflate him to make others taller. I think 6’3” out of bed tho
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 4/Feb/18

I believe Westbrook's the most legit 6'2.25" listed celeb here. And the most overlisted from what I've seen is Affleck.
Canson said on 4/Feb/18
@Junior: a select bunch of those guys are 6’2” such as Fisher (worst case he dips a hair under) and Lin looks 6’2”. Russ could be as high as 6’2.5 but honestly feel 6’2 or 6’2.25 or in between. Probably right on the nose on his measurement. He looks exactly 4” shorter than Carmelo Anthony
Canson said on 4/Feb/18
@Johnson: not a good video to judge height. Can’t see footwear for one. And at times it looks just an inch but at times I can’t tell
Junior Hernandez said on 4/Feb/18
Jeremy Lin, Ray Fisher, Ben Affleck and Westbrook all get 6'2.25" listing yet only Westbrook look more on the taller side like 189cm and make 6'4 James Harden look nothing over 6'3.5".

If Westbrook is 6'2" 3/4 than how come he looks almost as tall 6'4" 3/4 James Harden I say Westbrook is 6'4" 1/2.
Editor Rob
Harden ain't 6ft 4 3/4 though.

He's at most 6ft 4.
Canson said on 18/Jan/18
@Derrifk: he was measured in the afternoon that’s why he looks taller. He’s legit maybe he gained 1/4” but looks at best weak 6’3 or strong 6’2 really 4” shorter than Carmelo is and Melo is a solid or strong 6’6” max. It’s the shift to Morning that throws things off because most people measure 1/2” taller than they would in the afternoon
Derrifk said on 17/Jan/18
He looks taller than this tho
logan said on 17/Jan/18
If he's 6'2" 3/4 then how come he looks the same height as 6'4" 3/4. I say 6'4" 1/2.
Canson said on 5/Jan/18
@Jordan: I don’t have an official measurement for the commissioner validating that he’s 190 or that he’s the same height as Russ. Russ looks 4” shorter than Carmelo Anthony as well.

Silver looks as if he would be a bit taller. Of course he’s likley in dress shoes Russ in sneaks but the diff shouldn’t be that much. You could be right. I actually had Silver at 6’3” or about that but don’t believe Russ is as tall as he is. I think 6’2.25 is perfect for Russ as Rob has him listed from his draft measurement. He would prob be 6’3” out of bed
LeBlanc said on 4/Jan/18
Looks a solid 189cm
Jordan said on 31/Dec/17
But Canson he’s the same height as the commissioner Adam silver who is a legit 190.
Canson said on 29/Dec/17
@Jack: that may just be the timing of his measurement. He was an afternoon measurement vs Steph or John Wall or Kyrie being morning (all 2009 or later) whereas Russ was 08. Russ could be 189 flat imho or 6’2.25-.5 max but can also look 6’2.25 with Carmelo as well. Melo was nothing less than a flat 6’6 imho nothing more than maybe 198.5/199 imho as well. Looks 4” diff to me with them
jonas6'4 said on 23/Dec/17
How is he 0.6cm taller then Curry? He is close to 190cm. Solid 189 and Curry 187.

189 at worst in my opinion

@junior: I don’t think his was a morning measurement. They said it took place in the afternoon in 2008 and morning in 09. Didn’t mention any other years tho. They mentioned that (sportsheight posted it on steph curry’s Page). Russ could’ve been given a fraction like maybe was closer to 6’2” than 6’2.25 but I believe his draft height at least today. Melo looks a solid 4” on him imho. But I believe you also on Paul George. He’s not over 6’8”. Just shows Lebron likely is barely if even 6’7” as PG-13 edges him by a good inch or so
Junior said on 27/Oct/17
Westbrook drafted before he turn 20 when he get measure 188.6cm in the morning he should be holding 6'1.75" range lowest but higher chance he could have grow a 1/4 now at 6'2.5" if a morning measurement take place and came down at 6'2 lowest.
Canson said on 25/Oct/17
@johnson: he’s def taller than renaldo is but Christiano probably is 185 at his lowest 6’0 7/8 or a full 6’1. At that rate tho 6’0 7/8 and 6’1 evening are one in the same. Russ really looks 189 max imho. Looks exactly 4 inches under Melo. So 188.5-189 vs like 198-199
Johnson said on 25/Oct/17
@Rob Westbrook is clearly taller than Cristiano Ronaldo

Average guess of users here for Westbrook is 1.90

Any chance for an upgrade??
Eric said on 21/Oct/17
Curry is the best
Canson said on 20/Oct/17
I think strong 6’2 is accurate for him. Looks 4” diff with Melo and Melo for sure is a strong 6’6” I’m person. I’d be highly surprised if he dipped below 6’6” even if he got all the way down to 6’6” flat honestly. More like 198.5 imho
Im 171CM said on 19/Oct/17
Russ looks about 6'2" without shoes...
Canson said on 9/Oct/17
@Johnson: I think it’s fair to say the pics on this site all have their fair share of issues. The ones you used with Hinrich and Rose and Gordon all have the same as well where rose appears as tall as Hinrich and Hinrich can look shorter than Gordon in one and the same in another. Now I can say Kirk In person is no less than maybe strong 6’2” 6’2” is absolute worst case. At that stage when talking a one inch diff those pic you posted make it hard to tell unless back to back
hardguy said on 2/Oct/17
191 legit 6'3 imo
Johnson said on 30/Sep/17
Not movement pics I meant
Johnson said on 30/Sep/17
@Canson but Paul George is not on the side that's why I like to pick pictures side by side and aligned or movement pics. They are decieving
Canson said on 29/Sep/17
@Johnson: A pic like that can be misleading. Look at the one below. Melo looks as tall as Paul George as well actually taller and is actually a couple inches shorter. Melo is exactly as listed 6'6-6'6.25. I saw him in person in 2016 and stood right next to him. HArden is clearly taller in your pic and while agree HArden is close in height with Pique. Harden is 6'3.5 tops as is Pique.

@Johnson: I easily see Russ waking to 6'3". So being you're going off morning heights Russ would prob be 6'2 1/2-3/4 range AM. Who knows he could be a full 189 at his lowest 6'2 3/8. Anything is possible but he looked near 4" less than Melo and 2.5 less than butler both of whom I've met and look near their pre drafts. I wouldn't estimate Melo to fall below 6'6 nor butler to fall under 6'5
Canson said on 1/Sep/17
Westbrook is a strong 6'2, not 6'4. His draft listing looks accurate and his lowest. Agree with Insomniak he would likely still be over by a fraction like Jarrett Jack or Michael phelps. I can see Melo similar too But see maybe him falling to 6'6" flat
Johnson said on 31/Aug/17
@Hose 6'4 and more? I would never say Westbrook is so tall... then people say I inflate players. My opinion is around 6'3 mark
