Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jan/19
@Trevor M Then Jeremy Lin will be 6'0 1/4, Kobe Bryant 6'3 and Dwight Howard 6'7.
Batistaker said on 28/Dec/18
184.8 if I'm 192.something
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Junior: 184 range possibly
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Nov/18
185cm at most. 6'0.75" would be the perfect guess.
Canson said on 8/Oct/18
@Rampage: i doubt he’s even that tall to be honest
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/18
Basketball shoes: 189.9cm

@Junior: I’m beginning to wonder now. Shawn Marion is said to be between 6’5-6’6” in reality (6’6.25 pre draft but of course that may be just a mm or two over 6’6” since they don’t so 1/8” increments and we don’t know about socks etc). Plus could he morning height so 6’5.5-.75 is feasible. Nash doesn’t look over 6’0” with him
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Aug/18
Nash might measure 6'1 at the doctor office since he wasn't drafted and get measure by the NBA official. 6'0 1/2 is the lowest i won't estimate below.
Shane said on 24/Jul/18
@Canson I'd say your estimate of full 6'1" or a shade over our of bed is outstanding as well as slightly over 6'0" for an extreme low.
Colberto said on 21/Jul/18
He's looked anywhere from 184-186.5 honestly. Sometimes he seems 6'0 1/2- 6'1" other times 6'1- 6'1/2". But I think he'd likely fall under 6'1" a little in some pictures. 185cm more or less. My guess is 6'0 3/4".
Canson said on 11/Jul/18
@Shane: I think he would be 6’1” out of bed perhaps a hair more and be mid 6’0” at a normal days low. Maybe closer to 6’ at the end of a not day of a basketball game
Shane said on 8/Jul/18
I'm guessing his 6'1" barefoot claim is early morning or out of bed. Legit full height just not the height used on this site as far as listings.
Canson said on 22/Jun/18
Llllk said on 24/May/18
My final guess is 185-186.17cm, a centimeter, comparable to Barack Obama.
Lkk said on 20/May/18
correction : realized have some cm's on him as well.
Canson said on 20/May/18
I agree with what Junior said. He’s a strong 6’ perhaps or best case weak 6’1”.
VicLions said on 6/May/18
IMO Nash is being honest about 6ft1. Even from years ago he appeared shorter than players who are listed at 6ft3 such as Derrick Rose, and Stephen Curry.
Frost said on 4/May/18
I swear these inflated guesses only exist for b-baller whose fans are adamant on believing their nba lists heights.
Lkk said on 13/Apr/18
Has 2cm on me with a big head and lower eye level
Canson said on 8/Mar/18
@Junior: good insights as always!
Junior Hernandez said on 1/Feb/18
6'0.5"-6'0 5/8 is more suitable for Nash. I think Trump is more like 6'0.25"-6'0 3/8 max next to 185cm Obama who don't look even a tip of mm over 185cm next to Kobe Bryant. Kobe is more possible measure 6'4 7/8 (6'4.875) range and just let his wife round down say 6'4.75" because most people get the .875 would just round up or round down the figure to 6'5 or 6ft4.75 or to give the 3/4. Thats what i figure out so far.
Baba said on 29/Jan/18
A friend of mine who is 5’11 1/2 walked by him once and said he seemed about even maybe a hair taller...I’d bet he’s 6’ 1/4
Alex said on 4/Jan/18
Canson said on 16/Dec/17
I doubt even a full 6’1. Prob similar to Trump
Jalen C Gilmer said on 29/Nov/17
186 cm tops
Jery said on 25/Nov/17
Canson said on 21/Nov/17
@junior: he can look anywhere 6’-6’1 imho
VicLions said on 19/Nov/17
I think Nash is honest about himself being 6ft1 in barefeet. I noticed this even in his prime because he looked significantly shorter than players like Jason Kidd, and Gary Payton. Since he had a rivalry with those two they probably billed him as 6ft3 to fit in.
Junior said on 8/Nov/17
Nash can look only 6'0 with Kobe but look right 6'1 with Jeremy Lin.
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
Looks no more than 184-185
cober said on 11/Sep/17
184cm in the evening
no more than that
Animus said on 7/Sep/17
He looks like a weak 6'1 guy. Not sure he'd be 6'1 in the afternoon, probably more like 6'0½ or 6'0¾.
morris Kelt said on 29/Jul/17
Canson said on 17/May/17
@Christian: yea the most I can see for Nash is 185 his own claim 6'1@ but can also see 184-185
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 14/May/17
He possibly can't be 186-187 when he's 11-12cm shorter than 195 Kobe Bryant. What are you gonna say next, that Kobe's 198-199? What is it with you that you wanna make almost every celebrity taller than they really are, yet you call them tw*ts when they inflate a couple inches themselves, like you did with Dwayne Johnson.
Arby said on 13/May/17
No chance he's 6'2 let alone 6'3 he's listed. He's 6'0-6'1 tops
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/17
186-187cm was my guess
Mike said on 11/May/17
I met Nash, he's a solid 6'2" without shoes. He's taller than you'd think and very thin and rangy. Nice guy with a kind of quiet voice in person.
Canson said on 1/May/17
Damn autocorrect meant to say kobe is 195
Canson said on 29/Apr/17
Could look 6'1" at times or 6'0". Confusing because next to love who is 195 he looks a good 11-12cm shorter
Guanzo said on 20/Apr/17
famella said on 27/Mar/17
184.5cm at early lunch time & 183.5cm at night or during activities.
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Mar/17
Well, as long as his name isn't Marvyn, then he should still be the proud owner of TWO ears!👂👂 (Reservoir Dogs for the unenlightened!)
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
I agree S.J.H 5'10 and change maybe weak 5'11 for Beckham
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I'd go with that. Maybe a strong 6'0" tho vs a weak. I saw a few say he's around 6' or 5'11.75-6'.25
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I agree. And two or three people have met Nash and say he's strong 6' one even said flat 6' (5'11.75-6'.25). Kobe for sure isn't 6'6" without shoes. I'd say Kobe in a pair of good sneakers like Jordan's can reach 6'6 or dress shoes he may scrap without hair near a solid 198 but still a little shy of 6'6 (which is 198.12). I see Kobe as around 6'4.7 barefoot and maybe 6'5.9 or so in dress shoes at utmost 6'5.95 as they usually range around 1.2" and that would put him at a full 194.95
said on 7/Mar/17
David beckham only look max 5'10 with kobe bryant and nash look max 2' taller than david beckham.
i don't see nash over 6'0
if david beckham is really 5'11 then kobe bryant looks like an easy 6'6
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Mar/17
Rob, how likely is 186cm?
Arby said on 5/Mar/17
Met him several times with the Suns and more than can Count. He's about 6'-6'.5
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@S.J.H: I'd prob go 6'1-6'1.25 out of bed 6'0.25-6'0.5 as a low. He looks over 6' imho but could just be the slew of 5'10 guys that have claimed it or even strong 5'11s that make it look small in pics
S.J.H said on 24/Feb/17
Between 6'0 to 6'0.5 or 6'0.5 morning and 6'0 lowest
Chris said on 9/Jan/17
I thought he was 187
Realist said on 10/Nov/16
Thought he was 6'2
Wallace said on 10/Sep/16
He's not that much taller than me and I'm five eleven. Had me by an inch and a half probably. He's around six and a half to six one range like Derek fisher
Pete said on 6/Sep/16
I saw him today at whole foods ...I'm 6'0 feet tall ....Steve Nash is easily 6'3
Canson said on 30/Jun/16
@S.J.H: I think your estimate is perfect for him and 6'1 in shoes
S.J.H said on 30/Mar/16
I believe nash at worse 6'0.25 but more closer to reality he was a good 6'0.5 player
Triplescrew said on 14/May/15
As a Lakers fan I can say with confidence that Steve Nash is between 5'11.75" and 6'0.25". Might have lost some height due to his back issues...was MAYBE 6'1.25" in the morning as a spry 21-22 year old.
said on 30/Apr/15Click Here
There's this vid, part two of the episode. I'll have to heck to see the exact time but I think it's halfway through. Anyway, it's the source of his 6ft2 claim.
Lorne??? said on 27/Apr/15
Oh, and he also said that growing up, he was always just "average, or above height" and so was always a guard.
It's funny, as soon as him and Ron walked into the studio, the first thing that someone working there said to him was "man, I thought you'd be taller!". Nash replied "really?" With a bit of a smirk.
Lorne??? said on 27/Apr/15
Rob, he claims 6'2.
I was watching iconoclasts this morning, and it featured Steve Nash and Ron Howard meeting each other.
In an interview segment, while referring to himself and becoming a star NBA player, he says
They're aren't many 6ft2, white point guards.".
I think it's clear he's giving shoe height, though nonetheless it is interesting to have a claim from him.
(And at least he isn't claiming 6'3!)
Also, he looks roughly 3.5in taller than Ron Howard, whatever he is these days. (Max 4 inches)
glynny182 said on 17/Apr/15
looks this listed height of 6'1 if not a fraction or a few millimeters under from the research I have done,but near enough so a good, fair and accurate listing once again Rob.
b-mint1994 said on 18/Mar/15
I knew he wasn't 6'3". He could probably dunk if he was....
Lorne said on 25/Feb/15
6ft0.5-6ft0.75, he's not a full 6'1...
One my fave PG's, btw.
Josh said on 20/Feb/15
He seems to be 6´0.5
said on 17/Feb/15
He does look a 6'1 guy next to 6'1 Ryan Babel and 6'2 Henry Click Here
Daniele said on 2/Jan/15
He's a solid 6'. In the 90s every player was listed from 2 to 3 inches taller than he actually was. Why? Because American talent scouts and fans are just insane when talking about stats, measurements and so on. More than once I heard poeple saying **** like "This guy is too short to play in SG position, this one has such a poor wingspan and will never be a good defender...". Athletes are very sensitive when coming to measurements...
said on 28/Nov/14
Looking 6'1" next to 5'11.5" Justin Timberlake. Click Here
Judd said on 22/Nov/14
Wow 2" shoes are as thicker as book...
Maybe he had a dictionary under his feet when measured...XD
SaveUsY2J said on 23/Jul/14
If he's 5'11 then David Beckham is 5'9... lol. Would love to see which kind of basketball shoes give a whole four inches of height too
KROC said on 9/Jun/14
Steve Nash is about 6ft I believe. Chris Paul is 5'10.
Duhon said on 9/Jun/14
Brandon says on 7/Jun/14
Chris Paul is 5'11 barefoot. 6'1 sounds good for Steve Nash
Chris Paul measured 5'11.75" barefoot actually.
Brandon said on 7/Jun/14
Chris Paul is 5'11 barefoot. 6'1 sounds good for Steve Nash
Bard said on 19/May/14
6'1 at max, barely taller than Chris Paul who probably isn't 6'
Emmett said on 15/May/14
Most basketball players have 1-2 inches added on to their height, as people have been saying. Point guards tend to be a lot closer to average height then the heights they're listed as, but often still on the taller side by everyday standards.
Yazz said on 24/Apr/14
Hes taller than Donald Trump
steve nash is 5-11 said on 30/Nov/13
stop the video at 26 secs mark and see for yourself
thats not how a 185cm guy look like next to someone whos 178cm
i would say he has only about 3cm on leno minus the spikey hair
that will make him 181cm which is about 5-11 and half
he doesnt even look a legit barefoot 6 feet tall next to leno
steve nash is 5-11 said on 30/Nov/13
this is steve nash on jay leno show . i think this will once and for all , clear any doubts about him being 6-1 or taller than he really is
jay leno is about 5-10 and steve looks about an inch taller at best not counting his spikey hair . this will make him 5-11 . i just dont see him being 3 inches taller here than leno . what do you think rob ?
i dont even think steve is a legit 6 feet tall guy
mike bibby was once on jay leno too and look to be same height as leno
who stood eye to eye with him
so basically mike bibby is also around 5-10
Lorne said on 5/Sep/13
Maybe a fraction under this mark, at worst, but either Way 185cm is a good shout. Meanwhile, the 6ft3 listings are atrocious...
issa said on 14/Aug/13
Lin is 6 ft 3 listed but Rob I think you list nash at 6' 5'11 what Danielle said
KROC said on 13/Aug/13
Agreed Daniele. I think Harden might be around 6'4. I'm still not so sure about Jeremy Lin though.
Daniele said on 12/Aug/13
Kroc you may be right. The year Harden got drafted, measurements took place in the early morning so the reported height is his morning height. Anyway according to me he looks the same of Dwyane Wade.
Daniele said on 11/Aug/13
6'1 listing is wrong. He's around 6'-5'11. Look at him with Kobe: he's definitely not that tall or at least he doesn't seem to be. Jeremy Lin is taller that Nash. He's the around 6'2, Harden is a weak 6'4 (6'3.75) and Parsos is a weak 6'9. Recent draft measurements are rrliable, while measurements taken before 2004 are just crap, like in the case of Nash. Has anyone give at least a brief look at the photos I updated? I guess no...
KROC said on 6/Aug/13
I think James Harden is closer to 6'3. Not so sure about Lin. 6 ft maybe? If Steve Nash is 6'1 then he really makes that height look like crap
issa said on 30/Jul/13
Jeremy lin is'nt 6'1 That would mean James Harden is 6'1 or 2 as well and Parsons would be 6 ft 7 I think he is 6'4 with shoes
issa said on 30/Jul/13
averagegiant said on 29/Jul/13
carl landry isn't 6'1. That would mean David Lee is 6'1 or 2 as well and bogut would be 6'7. I think he's most likely 6'7 without shoes
issa said on 27/Jul/13
Rob I beilive Carl Landry is 6 ft 1 too
Emil said on 4/Jul/13
I believe Jeremy Lin is 6'1 too
Mark said on 1/Jul/13
I'll say Steve Nash is a legit 6'1"
said on 1/May/13
Sorry for double-posting, here are some pics:
With Kyrie Irving (listed at 6'1.75) Click Here
With Chris Paul (listed at 5'11.75) Click Here Click Here
Daniele said on 1/May/13
Some pics suggest that he's almost the same of Chris Paul. It's just unbelievable that a 6ft guy is listed at 6'3... He's definitely shorter than other players in 6'1-6'2 range like Rose, Irving and Deron Williams. Why did you list him 6'1 Rob?
said on 28/Apr/13
Rob, how tall is the average male american? I know I heard 5 ft 8 or 9, but on this site it seems like most of the males are taller than 6 ft. Are male celebs taller than the average male?
[Editor Rob: the average american is reported from 5ft 9 to 10 range.]
Jd2 said on 16/Jan/13
I have stood very near I'm at a suns charities function. I am 6 ft. 3, and I am sure I was a bit taller.
Trey said on 12/Jan/13
Shorter than Kaka by at least 2-3 cm. Proves he's 183-184 cm tops, it also proves Justin Timberfake is 178-179 cm tops.
said on 18/Aug/12
Looks about 2" shorter than 6'2" listed football (soccer) player Tom Huddlestone. Nash is no taller than 184/5cm max and only because we can't see their footwear - Huddlestone may be wearing football studs.
The Dutch Guy said on 9/Aug/12
Steve Nash is a solid 6'1"
Ronaldo 6'0.5" (184cm)
Kaka 6'1.25" (186cm)
Messi 5'6.5" (169cm)
jasperwazup said on 28/Jul/12
steve was never 6'3'' but then again john stockton wasn't 6'1''. Allen Iverson wasn't 5'11''. steve has great posture for a guy near 40 years old. steve 6'1.5'' i'd say
maio said on 10/Jan/12
he's 6 ft 0.75 in/185 cm like Cristiano Ronaldo while Kakà is 6 ft 1.25 in/186 cm.
said on 7/Nov/11
Here's another interesting photo Click Here
This is Chris Paul, he is listed as 5 '11.75 "
Evan said on 23/Aug/11
Yeah Nash is like 6'2'' tops
said on 18/Jul/11
Please see photo with Kaka:
Kaka vs. Cristiano Ronaldo:
Cristiano is legit 6-1 and Kaka is maybe an inch taller so Kaka can be 6-2.
Therfore, Nash 6-1 sounds right to me.
said on 20/Jun/11
If you guys watch the video below halfway through Nash talks about his height and brings a "normal sized guy" in.
I will say this at 6'1" I consider Nash the start of solid tall he looks tall to me at all times.
Click below to watch the clip
said on 20/Jun/11
I think Rob may have this right guys! Check out the link below its from Draft Express where they give the listed height, but they also give the without shoe's height and he is listed as a flat 6'1" I believe this to be true, He may wake up like us all a bit taller but I think his evening height is indeed a complete (meaning not below 6'1")
Hey Rob, just so you know and to all the other guys you can find a lot of player heights without shoes measurement on this web site as well.
Max said on 19/Jun/11
So he's 6'1" flat?
said on 5/Apr/11
Yes, I think. Kaka in studs, but what about Nash's shoes can only be expected .
18 mm, which is the maximum permitted length of studs permitted by FIFA (but the length of the spikes may be less than 11 to 18 mm). And I do not think that Kaka is above 186 cm.
Ozzy said on 4/Apr/11
I'd say they're the same. Kaka in studs and Nash in flat trainers? I've seen him claim "6'2 on a very good day."
said on 2/Apr/11
Kaka (186 cm) and Steve Nash (191 cm).
grick said on 19/Mar/11
Bdub, why did you say you measured your dad at night? did you sneak in on him and do it while he was sleeping?
Clay said on 26/Dec/10
186 Cm at most since I heard with my own ears him describing himself at 6'1 without shoes on an ESPN radio show.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/10
186cm-187cm...6"1 flat is too low
Mr. R said on 3/Nov/10
I just saw Steve Nash on the Sundance TV show Iconoclasts where he was on with Ron Howard. At one point, he spoke of himself as a "6-2 guy from Canada". I think he is rounding up. By the way, he was way taller than Ron Howard and they were both in athletic shoes. Matter of fact, I think RH had more heel on his shoes!
SH said on 31/Oct/10
I'd give Nash 6'2, 6'3 in shoes
SB said on 30/Jun/09
I used to work at a bar in Phoenix, where Nash would come in regularly. I am 6' .5''. He was at least an inch taller than me, so in basketball shoes, I would say he's 6'2.5''. 6 foot 1.5'' barefoot is probably the most accurate measurement of him
mma fan said on 25/Jun/09
I would say 6'1.5
said on 25/Jun/09
Nash is taller than Sharapova, Click Here
eye to eye, but he's same height 6'1.5/6'2".

Sharapova looks taller than Nash in each picture when you consider Nash's camera advantage.

Nash taller than Trump in a photo, maybe a solid 1'.
Nash Measured 6'1 at 22, but now he's 6'1.5/6'2".

Trump isnt 6-2 anymore. 6-2 measured Shawne Merriman has an inch on him on his myspace page. 6-1 measured Nash is the same height as Trump. Trump is 6-1 these days.

Here he is looking a solid 3 inches taller than 5'9.75" Josh GrobanClick Here
I say Nash is 6'1.5". Definitely no shorter than 6'1"
Mike S. said on 31/May/09
Very likely. Seems like the NBA does add on the 2" rule. Nate Robinson clearly states in a Youtube video of his Top 10 dunks that "I'm only 5'7", but don't let the height fool you".
Adam said on 5/Mar/09
My buddy was lucky enough to take a picture with him a couple years ago, and Nash was a clearly smaller then my friend who is 6'2 and change. I'd put him at about 6'1. I'm 6'1 and I've walked by him before and we're pretty close. He's probably 6 and a half to 6'1/5.
Derek said on 2/Mar/09
Brent says on 2/Mar/09
"Nash is over 6'1, but not over 6'2 barefoot".
Nash measured 6'1" prior to being drafted in 1996.
Brent said on 2/Mar/09
Nash is over 6'1, but not over 6'2 barefoot.
Jim said on 24/Jan/09
I remember seeing an old draft document from 1996 and it had him listed at 6'3 with 6'1 in brackets. It looked like this: 6'3 (6'1). I'm thinking the height in brackets was his barefoot height.
MD said on 21/Jan/09
Anyone just see the interview with Conan O'Brien where Conan ask him if he's 6'2", and he sayson a very, very good day? lol At least he was honest.
rollabluntcallitaftermath said on 16/Jan/09
I remember on Mike and Mike in the morning, Mike Greenberg was talking about Steve Nash being "nowhere near 6'3". I believe they estimated him at about 6'1
Brent said on 4/Jan/09
this is very accurate, 6'1 steve nash and 6'1.5 derek rose both are listed at 6'3
Ethylene said on 30/Dec/08
He admits he is 6'1" in his interview on the Charlie Rose show. I stood next to him in a restaurant in Phoenix as we were waiting to be seated, and I easily had 3 inches on him (I am not quite 6'4"). More interesting is how skinny he is - not an ounce of fat on him - from behind he looks like a teenager.
Clay said on 13/Nov/08
NBA doesnt really inflate they just usually list them in shoes, especially the guard. Keep in mind those sneakers give over an inch.
Soccer fan said on 2/Sep/08
Gonzalo, I've seen a lot of football players and almost everyone was a bit shorter than their listed height. Most accurate stats add players 2 cm, but sometimes they give even 5 cm more than they really have.
Shaq said on 9/Aug/08
Gonzalo, Nash was measured 6'1" without shoes at the 1996 pre-draft camp. I'd say that's most likely reliable while the other players listings are off by a little.
trueheight said on 8/Aug/08
this makes Tony Parker 6'0 right?
What's w/ the NBA inflating heights? It's not like the players are short to begin with!
Big T said on 8/Aug/08
To me, Henry and Nash are the same height in that pic, which makes sense, cos Henry has imo always been 6'1" and not the listed 6'2"
said on 8/Aug/08
Nash looked as tall if not taller than Thierry Henry when he visited Fc Barcelona team in New York. Henry is listed everywhere at 1`88.
In this pic they look very similar in heightClick Here
Nash looking taller than Henry and Abidal. Abidal is listed 1`86.Click HereClick Here
Well, there must be something wrong somewhere. Are Abidal and Henry listed above their real height? Both? It is hard to believe. Nash must be taller than 1`85
Shaq said on 30/Jul/08
He was actually measured 6-1 flat.
Joe said on 26/Jul/08
He was measured at 6-0.75 (184.5 cm) right before the 1996 NBA Draft. Even with basketball shoes on he is just over 6-2. I've seen him in Treviso in 2006 and he looked just an inch, maybe two taller than me (I'm 5-11).
Viper said on 24/Jul/08
Sam Jackson is 6-1 these days.
Kev said on 23/Jul/08
Nash is 6'1. At 59, Samuel L. Jackson could have easily lost an inch or even more of height. My friend is only 40 and has already lost 2 cm from his prime height.
said on 22/Jul/08
Rob, check out this youtube clip of Steve Nash with Samuel L. Jackson from the ESPY awards;Click Here
There is no way that Nash is 1.5" shorter than 6'2.5" Jackson. Even slightly slouching, Nash looks at least as tall as Jackson, but I'd give him 6'3" if he straighted out his posture next to Jackson. I think Nash should be upgraded to at least 6'2.5".

Okay, now I am really confused. I just saw Steve Nash present an award with Samuel Jackson on the ESPY Awards. Nash was clearly an inch taller than Jackson, who is listed at 6'2.5" tall on this site. What gives? Nash was wearing normal dress shoes with no discernible lifts. I'm sure photos will be up on the internet shortly, but based on what I saw, Nash looked 6'3" tall.
jwr said on 15/Jul/08
I can honestly say he is just above 6 feet tall.. i am just under and saw him out this weekend. i had heard he was 6-3 and said the same thing to my buddy. he disagreed and had me walk over and stand next to him. he said he was maybe an inch taller than me. that would make him about 6'1".
Guru said on 13/Jul/08
i always noticed how much steve nash is shorter than most of the other nba players.
Ryan M said on 13/Jul/08
Steve Nash is not 6 foot 3. I saw him in person in 1993 in Canada at the Canada Summer Games and he was 6 foot one almost. Unless he grew at age 19 and looks taller on TV, he is 6 foot and a half or 6'1".
Aram X said on 27/Jun/08
i would what nash's wingspan is? just curious? and yeah, it's kinda funny that the phoneix suns got two rather famous no-neck players...Shawn Marion and Amare Stoudimere....they both got virtually no neck-to-speak of which allows them to play taller than their listed heights in suppose.

Wayne Gretzky was NOT 5'10. He wasn't 6' either. In his prime with Edmonton he playedagainst my beloved Winnipeg Jets and I hung around the locker rooms trying to meet him - everyone who did said he was about 5'11" - 5'11.5" in his socks. Because he was so slight compared to other players (175 - 180 lbs), he might have looked taller but he was never 6'.
Where did you get 5'10", "in the morning"?
6'1 1/2 in the morning said on 1/Jun/08
Steve Nash is a legit 6'1 and more like 6'1 1/2 early in the morning. He can appear shorter on camera because he has a slighter physique than the average pro basketball player which makes him appear like a person of average height. Almost every NBA player is listed between 1-2 inches taller than their actual barefoot height. This is less noticable with the taller players because they have bigger feet and their shoes have thicker soles which help hide the gap. So basically, a 5'9 player who is listed at 5'11 will have a much more noticable difference of height inflation versus a player who is 6'6 and is listed at 6'8 simply because the 6'6 player has larger feet and wears shoes with soles about 1/2 to 2/3 of an inch thicker than the 5'9 player.
Steve Nash's 6'3 listing explained:
Morning height: 6'1 1/2
Height with basketball shoes: 6'2 1/2
Rounded to the nearest higher inch: 6'3
Personally, I think a 6'2 NBA listing would of been better for Nash.
Wayne Gretzky was alwyas listed at 6'0 by the NHL but was only 5'10 barefoot.

Sager looks 6-3 max. 6-6 T-Mac has atleast 3-4 inches on him.
Oz said on 26/May/08
Sager is 6'4.5" Nash was 6'1 at draft-camp in 96.
Schnouzer Breath said on 25/May/08
a post way below mentions Nash being 1-2 inches shorter than Craig Sager; I believe Sager is about 6-3 and maybe change, so that would verify Nash being 6-1.
MP said on 23/May/08
he is exactly my height 6'1" barefoot and 6'2" to 6'3" in shoes but I'm nly and 18 and will grow to 6'4" to 6'5" barefoot

Shaq said on 21/May/08
By the way allen4 Nash was measured 6'1" barefoot by the NBA.
Shaq said on 21/May/08
allen4 he looks 5'11" with Shaq because Shaq is 7'1" barefoot and 7'3" in shoes while Nash is 6'1" barefoot and probably 6'2" in shoes.
Since Shaq's barefoot height is a foot above Nash's and then you factor in the additional inch advantage Shaq has in shoes then those heights make sense.

disagree with you people who say hes 6'1. I've taken a photo with him and i'm 6'2. He was taller than me, so most likely 6'3.
BC88 said on 13/Apr/08
6' 1" sounds exactly right. The only way it could be 6' 3" is if he had big 2 inch shoes.
Derek said on 1/Mar/08
Nash isn't 6'3", but 5'11" is way too low for him. 6'1" sounds fair.
JWill said on 25/Feb/08
I watched the Suns vs. Pistons match up yestarday and when Steve Nash was guarding 6'3 Chauncy Billups, Steve Nash looked more like 5'11 next to him. No way is Steve Nash 6'3.
Shaq is 7'1" said on 24/Feb/08
Found Amare's updated measurements after he grew
6-9 1/4 barefoot
6-10 3/4 in shoes
Shaq is 7'1" said on 15/Feb/08
If Marion is over 6'5" then that means Amare grew from the 6'8.5" he measured when he was drafted and I doubt that considering legit 7'1" Shaq towered over Amare by what looked like 5-6 inches.
Derek said on 7/Feb/08
Marion is closer to 6'6". Amare Stoudemire was measured at 6'8 3/4" in 2002, but some say he grew.

i met him before the suns-raptors game dec 5, 2007 and he was my height or slightly taller and im 6'1. He probably had bigger shoes on though, because he was game ready so I'd put him at 6'1 barefoot.

Nate is 5-7-5-8 actually.

Just saw a game with the 5'9 Nate Robinson guarding Steve Nash. If Steve was really 6'3, he would have TOWERED over Nate with a six inch difference. But he didn't, Nash only looked a few inches taller then Nate. Nash is still a great player.

Well maybe it was Kidd's dress shoes, but he looked big, bigger than 6'3. To be fair, I was a bit star struck and I didn't approach him and try to gauge eye level, just estimated the top of his head. Theodoros Plakadopoulos Maybe it was his shaved head making him appear taller also, but he sure seemed to have more way more than .75 inches on myself.

Kidd is listed at 6'4 in many places and I have seen him up close (he lives in Saddle River NJ and his daughter is in a kids class at the gym I go to) He looked as legit 6'4 when I saw him, not padded. I saw Nash up real close one time and he is only 6'1. I had an inch on him.
Jason Lee said on 21/May/07
I dont see Nash as 6'3, jason kidd is listed as 6'3 and leandro barbosa is listed 6'3 so is nash on the nba site, but if u see photos of kidd and nash or barbosa and nash, nash is like 2-3 inches shorter. harris is probably 6'0 with long legs to make him look taller, and nash prob has a longer torso cuz his legs are short
AH said on 16/May/07
It kinda weird. I love Nash but I dont see how he can be 6'3''. He doesnt look like a 6'3'' kinda guy. He doesnt have the frame for it. I have lots of friends who are 6'3'' and their legs are not as short as Nash (no offense). I would say that Nash is about 6'0'' to 6'1'' is the most. He just doesnt look like 6'3'' to me.
random said on 11/May/07
harris is listed at 6-3 u noob....and how u know he's a legit..u have nothing to prove that...being 6 even and 6 1/2 is not much of a difference...it's pretty much the same thing....damn....

Kidd is a little over an inch shorter than his listed height. Kenyon is only marginally under his listed height. The NBA never lists people as 6'8 3/4", so they round up.

So Kidd is 6'3 and Kenyon Martin is 6'9? Kidd isn't much shorter than his listed height than.

Steve Nash is probably a bit over 6'2" but I am not saying I even have a clue on his height as I haven't studied it enough.
You guys are forgetting I think the average NBA height is 6'6" I think Viper knows the real number, most guys who are 6'4" and below are going to look "small" near these guys.
Jason Kidd is 6'4" but if you look at him on the court near 6'9" Kenyon Martin he looks like a 6' player at times.
G said on 16/Jan/07
I stood next to Nash last year at a charity event. We both had casual shoes on and he was definitely taller than me, but not by much. I just measured myself, and I'm right at 6 feet, 1 & 3/4 inches. I'd say he's 6'2" - 6'2.5"
JT said on 13/Jan/07
Nash looked the same height as 6'3" Cheryl Miller the other night on TNT. Miller's height could be exaggerated of course.
Jordan said on 30/Dec/06
I though he was dead 6'. He always seems like a small dude on th court. I'll give him 6'1" maybe, but definitely no more than that.

I have a bro that is around 6 ft 2 or 3. And I"m only 5 ft 10 1/2. I found out that Steve Nash (My favorite player) was 6 ft 2 or 3, I flipped! He looks tiny on TV, but in reality... He's taller than me!
BASKETBALL'S EINSTEIN said on 12/Nov/06
hey have ne of you guys who sed he's shorter ever considered the fact that you(personally) don't know the difference between someone 6'0 and 6'3. firstly u CANNOT estimate someone's height without standing next to them or seeing them compared to someone else. also i'm sure he is measured accurately opposed to you who prolly do it at home or some s*** like dat. di man 6'3 leave it at that! eva considered you might be taller than you think?
Alex said on 11/Nov/06
6'1 plus basketball shoes=about 6'2.5 then rounded up you get 6'3. Thats how he is listed at 6'3.
griswold 1 said on 3/Nov/06
saw Nash at a radiohead concert in Vancouver some years ago - stood right by him (by the way, super nice guy, no ego, friendly) - was barely taller than me (5-10 1/2) so would put him at 6' tops
6 footer said on 9/Oct/06
steve nash 6-1 ?? oh no, i am afraid he might not even be 6-1 in his shoes for crying out loud
whenever he stood next to his fellow pg teammate leandro barbosa, barbosa always look to have at least
3 inches on him, and leandro is also listed at 6-3, which will make steve 6 flat at the most
this site should do a thread about leandro barbosa too, most people (all of you included) just didnt
realized that barbosa is perhaps the only one in the nba listed at his true height, barbosa looks
like a legit 6-3 guy.

I'm looking at a photo of Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant standing nose to nose shouting at each other during their April 26, 2006 playoff game. The photo is by Paul Connors of the AP, and was published in April 27th Sports sections around the country, including the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Their noses are about 8" apart, and in the photo they look about the same height, with Kobe maybe slightly taller. Nash's eyes are actually higher than Kobe's, but Kobe is leaning forward a little more than Nash. Kobe Bryant is listed as 6' 6" or 6'7". There's no way Steve Nash is shorter than 6'3'', unless you think Kobe is shorter than 6'3".[Editor Rob:

What I meant was he looked to be 6'2 1/2" with shoes and probably 6'1 1/2" without shoes.
Nashty Lover said on 8/Jun/06
I met and had a picture taken with Steve Nash before a round two playoff game. It was pre warm up and he had on regular athletic shoes, not basketball, and appeared to be 5 1/2 inches taller than me. Putting him at around 6'1/2". So, I would assume without shoes he's about 6' 1/2" feet tall.
(I have to say he was one of the nicest and most humble people I've ever met, great guy! And so much better looking in person, hubba hubba!)

well, Bill Walton has been around tall people people for a long time and he always goes overboard with his commentary. So I doubt he mistakes 6'1 for 5'11 but I don't know for sure. I'll have to look at more pictures.

Tony Parker is according to the french national team and his own web site: 6'1

Again, using gettyimages as a source, there is a pic of nash and luke ridnour standing next to each other in a portrait shot. both are standing up straight. ridnour measured 6'1/185cm w/o shoes at the pre-draft camp and nash is visibly taller. I have nash at 187cm (6'1.75).

The man is no where near 6'3". To be honest, 6' is pushing it a little. He may not even be 6'.

Perhaps he did so jokingly.. (but there were no smiles or laughs) but Mike Greenberg referred to Steve Nash as being 5'9" on their radio show 5/1/06 at about 8AM EST. He was making reference to a Luke Walton/Steve Nash jump ball.
JT he's nowhere close to 6'3"Click Here
If Finley is LISTED at a playing height (w/ shoes) of 6'7.. do you really think Nash is a legit 6'3? He's struggling with 6'0"

Tony Parker and Ridnour are well under their listed heights..
I've heard two professional eyewitnesses say nash was 6'0 even.
Finley is about 6'6 barefoot. (6'7 listing).. He EASILY has 6" on Nash.
Nash is 6'1 MAX... 6' is likely I do believe.
Monty said on 23/Dec/05
Steve Nash is 6'3. Look at the pics below.
Here he is with his coach Mike D'Antoni whos 6'3 and both are in sneakers. When D'Antoni is in his dress shoes during games he seems an inch taller then Nash.
Here hes with Tony Parker whos 6'2
Heres Steve next to Luke Ridnour whos 6'2.
And finally heres Nash and Aaron Carter whos unbeliveably listed at 6'0.5.
There are many more pics which shows Nash is around 6'3 so Rob please increase his height.
PS: Also Rob after seeing the pic with Aaron Carter can you add him to the database.
[Editor Rob: Carter, I think he said in 2001 he was 5ft 8, but nowadays not sure if he's above 177cm...
As for Nash, there's pic of him/tucker/holyfield on wireimage but it's hard to tell who is taller...taking away nash hairr compared to tucker/holyfield they all look very close! Actually, I'm going to put this guy back to 6ft 1.5 for the moment...I hate all these basketball heights 'with shoes' etc...never understand why they do it...]

Nba players' heights are all over the place. I have worked for many summer camps at my university's gym and some players match their listed height and some don't. Never met Nash but he does look way shorter than 6'3. I know that both Quentin Richardson and Richard Hamilton are about 2" shorter than their listed height but Desmond Mason of the Bucks was around 2" taller. He was w/ the sonics when I met him and would say he's close to 6'7. He's listed as 6'5 but towered over me and I'm 6'3 even. I don't understand overlisting a player's height...it doesn't make you play taller. My school's point guard last year, Joe Sea is listed 6' and is more around 5'9.
Bigg said on 18/Aug/05
yeah this other girl told me she like met him and that he was like tall but not like wow tall she said he's like 6"1...she was still surprised because he looks short on tv...so did I and alot of ppl thought that...when there like looking on tv.. and I was like he's listed at 6"3....but he probably lied.. but i think he's 6 foot barefoot in my opinion
Bigg said on 18/Aug/05
soo Steve Nash is 6"1 barefoot or is that with shoes on? because my old friend saw him in a game and said he was 6"1 but told me this other kid in my class was taller than him and he's like 6"2 barefoot probably 6"3 with shoes on....but no one really looks at a person and downgrade considering there shoes are on...sometimes

Nash is only about 6', maybe a little over.. I'm not sure why the Editor didnt knock him down more based on the picture posted before.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 28/Jun/05
Just like they do in the NBA draft which i've been watchin 2nite they boost a player up by 1 inch like Sean May was 6'81/4 they boosted him up to 6'9 so Nash was probally 6'21/4 n boosted up to 6'3 althought he doesnt look it but then again they r probally measured wit shoes on
Cool J said on 21/Jun/05
He doesnt "quite look like" 6'1.5" barefoot either. This guy isn't even 6'1.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 12/Jun/05
Steve looks like he's 6'1 or 6'1.5 I disagree he's 6'3 jus like Steve Francis and Gilbert Arenas there listed at 6'3 and neither look over 6'0 or 6'1 sp theose 3 r probally all under 6'2
JS said on 10/Jun/05
Wow, I think 187cm is a reach. Do you REALLY think he's 6'1.5" barefoot in that picture below judging that Finley is right around 6'7 with shoe son?
JCS said on 7/Jun/05
I'd say we can safely downgrade him to at least 6'1... probably even 184cm.
Hooleyman said on 7/Jun/05
I saw him in a bar in Victoria, Canada (where he grew up) and I'd guess he's about 6'1" since he was a bit taller than than my 6' buddy he was standing next to.
Mr. R said on 6/Jun/05
For years, I have looked at this guy, and he was always just shrimped by everyone on the court, even some of the refs and commentators. I knew 6-3 was a lie, and I recently saw something that said 6 foot. My guess is he is between 6-0 and 6-1 at best!
