He was described as 7'6" in one national newspaper recently!

Might even be top 50 @Onabill.

There are around 2800-3000 7 FTers (Both Males and Females) and there is currently 4 official 8 FTers, is it safe to say Tacko Fall Is in the top 100 Tallest people in world? Or is that pushing a bit?

I wouldn't be surprised if he loose 3.5 cm during the day.
Lol.. it's crazy because even if you cut off a whole foot from his height he will still be a solid 6ft5 at low.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/May/19
Wow the 3/4 inch downgrade.. 7'5 1/4 that will make Kareem under 7'1 now like 7'0 1/2 and Kevin Nash below 6'8.
Duhon said on 20/May/19
Probably had/has orthotics in his shoes. I feel like he'll be listed at 7'6" if he is drafted to the NBA.
Ellis 6'8 said on 20/May/19
@Canson: How do you know that they measured in the afternoon? I don't know where to find it.
viper said on 19/May/19
I thought Bruno did look a bit taller than 6-8 Naz Reid in the tournament.
viper said on 19/May/19
At the start of a game I was at my dad said how tall does Bruno look to you
6-8?

Then said maybe 6-9
RP said on 18/May/19
7’5.25” & 289 lbs barefoot...7’7” with his sneakers on!!! 1.75” boost from sneakers!!!! What in the world kind of sneakers is he wearing ??!!! LOL!!! My work boots only boost me 1.625” 😂😂😂😱😱😱
viper said on 18/May/19
Sean, 99.9999 percent of the time college basketball players are not their listed height.
Canson said on 18/May/19
@Viper: that looks as if it’s closrr to a morning height for Bruno. I would guess him 6’8 range barefoot and 6’9” range in shoes. Not 6’10”. That’s the perception of him on the court
SeanR said on 17/May/19
Tacko I thought was legit 7’6” barefoot, but just goes to show that can’t go based off pictures. 7’5.25” is huge but with shoes on to make him 7’7” is monstrous. No wonder Nash looks like a kid next to him. I think Nash can still pull off near Rob’s current listing of 6’8.75” because in all fairness to Nash he is standing behind aland his footwear is at least 1 inch less than Tacko s
viper said on 17/May/19
Canson, Bruno Fernando measured the exact same height as last year, 6-8.75

And what do you think of the Naz Reid typo
Canson said on 16/May/19
@Viper: we aren’t sure if he grew an inch or not. Remember that this is the pre draft. Just because they measured in the afternoon this year doesn’t mean they didn’t get up physically at 2 and measure at 3
viper said on 16/May/19
Yep I was right.

Naz Reid measured 6-8

Click Here
viper said on 16/May/19
I think the Naz Reid is a typo

He's listed in the Column where he should be 6-8.25.

And also he supposedly measured only half an inch in shoes. Don't buy it
viper said on 16/May/19
I bet the 6-8.75 is rounded up from
6-8.5 for some.

Naz Reid and Bruno Fernando don't look that height.
MD said on 16/May/19
Viper, you're doing it again. Six consecutive posts.
viper said on 16/May/19
I'm not nearly as good with weight.

The 289 pounds shocks me

And how does Bol Bol have the highest body fat percentage so far at only 208 pounds. Crazy
viper said on 16/May/19
That's why I changed my mind from 7-4 to 7-5, and also that article
viper said on 16/May/19
I disagree Rob, he grew an inch.

He truly "looked" a bit taller playing this past basketball season.
viper said on 16/May/19
He was referred to as 7-4 by a few announcers the past few years. He was listed at 7-4 on some sites.

He's 7-4 in the pic with Nash.

This backs that up:

The University of Central Florida center is listed at 7-foot-6, although Tacko and those around him will tell you that the senior has grown an inch taller.
Editor Rob
Considering head sizes, I wouldn't have guessed Nash was much less than 9 inches smaller than Fall, although to be fair Nash head might have been a bit further away which doesn't help him.
viper said on 16/May/19
viper said on 7/Mar/19
Yeah, I think my eyes are not deceiving me that he looks a little taller now.

I still doubt he measures 7-6 though.


My eyes still work, lol. He just looked a bit taller this year.
viper said on 16/May/19
Well he was at the combine.

And he measured 7-5 1/4

I'm right yet again :)
Ellis 6'8 said on 16/May/19
@Rob: Tacko Fall got 7'5.25, just as I pinned him at, I think he should be downgraded, check the combine results he was in it. His standing reach is 10'2.5!
Editor Rob
That goes to show he didn't really grow from the time he met Kevin Nash a few years ago.
Canson said on 15/May/19
@Viper: it says Bol was 7’2.25 in shoes but then it was listed under the same category as Fall’s 7’5.25. Not sure if there is a discrepancy so there may be the answer for someone like Dwayne Wade as we obviously know that he’s not 6’3.75. Wade likely is your size 6’2.75 at a normal low
Canson said on 15/May/19
@Viper: he is there. 7’5 1/4” barefoot

@Rob: needs a downgrade
viper said on 13/May/19
I'm really bummed he's not at the NBA combine
Canson said on 5/Apr/19
@Duhon: Cap has probably lost some height at that age
Duhon said on 4/Apr/19
Tacko looking massive next to Kareem Jabbar again Click Here
viper said on 4/Apr/19
I'm betting that's what he measures Ellis
Ellis said on 2/Apr/19
7'5.25-7'5.5
SeanR said on 30/Mar/19
The pic posted here before with Tacko and Kevin Nash, looks to be about 10.5 maybe 11 inch difference. If Tacko say was 7’4.5” as some here have claimed at the time of the photo what does that make Nash 6’5.5” or 6’6”? Not a chance. Tacko looks to have slight footwear advantage as well. Tacko looks a legit 7’5.5”, 7’6” here so Nash probably in this photo looks max 6’8”.
Bard said on 29/Mar/19
He needs to meet up with Yao, would make for a hell of a pic.
Canson said on 29/Mar/19
@Shane: he may actually measure over 7’5” since guys that size lose more. He may be something like what you said or even 7’4.25ish at a low. He towered Zion who I think would be 6’5.75 out of bed and 6’5” at a normal low
Shane said on 27/Mar/19
After watching him play against Duke, I cannot imagine him measuring under 7'4 1/2" barefoot at combine (morning) and likely around 7'5" range. That said, using the afternoon/low standard used here, who knows. A guy this tall could easily compress 1.5 inches or more through the day. So he may wake up 7'5" to even 7'5 1/2" barefoot and dip to 7'4" or less by nightfall or after a game. I would say he definitely measures a full 7'6" in shoes, however, at least early in the day.
Canson said on 9/Mar/19
@184guy: yea 4” becomes difficult
viper said on 7/Mar/19
Yeah, I think my eyes are not deceiving me that he looks a little taller now.

I still doubt he measures 7-6 though.

Not impossible but it would be very surprising. 99 percent of the time college players are shorter than their listed height
viper said on 7/Mar/19
New article today.

The University of Central Florida center is listed at 7-foot-6, although Tacko and those around him will tell you that the senior has grown an inch taller.
viper said on 7/Mar/19
Tako may have grown an inch to 7-5.

That picture with Kevin Nash he was 7-4 imo.
184guy2 said on 7/Mar/19
@Canson
Anything over 4 inches to me is hard to guess in a specific range ( fractions ) , unless beside someone that I know the height
Canson said on 6/Mar/19
@Erik C: although next to Hakeem he can look 7’4 or 7’5 but maybe the angle
Erik C. said on 6/Mar/19
@Viper

Ik this might seem naive but I can't imagine Tacko measuring 7'4 based on how he stands next to ppl like Magic Johnson, Kevin Nash or even shrunken Kareem Abdul Jabbar. But I guess it's possible
Canson said on 5/Mar/19
@184guy: if the guy stood in front of me and I didn’t take more than a glance or quick eyeball at his height I wouldn’t be able to tell with that much difference in height, so I’m not sure if Viper would be able to either. I saw George Muresan once in person for a few seconds and I honestly couldn’t tell anything but the fact that he easily looked over a foot taller than me. I’ve been more cognizant since coming on the site but even then if it is as quick as I saw him it’s close to impossible. That said in the pics he will vary based on an assortment of factors and maybe that’s what threw him off

I expect him to measure no more than 7-5

@viper
Do you know how the difference between 7'4 and 7'6 just by the pics ???
viper said on 28/Sep/18
A couple of basketball announcers said he was 7-4 this past year. I doubt he's taller.

I really doubt he is his listed height. Hardly anyone in college basketball is.

It's a shame he wasn't measured
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Sep/18
@viper he's taller than that for sure.
viper said on 10/Sep/18
He's listed at 7-4
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Sep/18
He use to be listed at 7'5 on many sites.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Jul/18
Kevin Nash is no where over 6'8 1/2. Tacko might be telling truth he is 7'6 and not higher.
Conan said on 22/Feb/18
He is taller than Yao Ming about 1 inch.
Logan said on 3/Feb/18
He's around 7'6" 1/2 at his peak in shoes, Just edging out Bradley and an inch taller than Yao.
Vegas said on 1/Feb/18
Canson, well you can clearly tell that Fall is a full head and a couple of inches taller than Magic
Dude 173 cm said on 23/Jan/18
@Logan

Tacko in that days was 7'4.5" and Nash deserves clearly a downgrade of peak and current height
Logan said on 21/Jan/18
I'm starting to think Tacko Fall is actually closer to 7'7" than 7'6". If he was only 7'5"-7'6" Kevin Nash would need a huge downgrade. I think Tacko Fall is actually 7'6" 1/2.
logan said on 17/Jan/18
7'6" 1/4 same height as Shawn Bradley in his prime.
Canson said on 11/Jan/18
@Vegas: you can’t tell much from that pic esp with Magic closer to the camera
Vegas said on 11/Jan/18
With magic Johnson Click Here
checker said on 2/Jan/18
He was listed at 7'4 when this pic was taken. Hes still 7'4.

You can believe hes 7'5, but Central Florida does not list him at his real height. The 7'6 is the usual inflated college height.

He will get measured shorter than this guaranteed. They always do
Nik said on 1/Jan/18
@ Christian-6'5 3/8

Yeah. You are right! I was just pointing out that Kevin Nash looks average in comparison to Tacko! Any skilled person in the field of human height, like yourself and many others on this site, would be able to work out they are both somewhere close to the heights that they are, but less learnered people may be conned into thinking that Nash is a lot smaller than he is, and therefore thatTacho is too!

Cheers!
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 31/Dec/17
@Nik

Even if you never heard of Kevin Nash and Tacko Fall and don't know their heights and you saw this pic, you can tell by their body proportions that they're way taller than 5'9" and 6'7".
Dylon said on 31/Dec/17
Jeez he’s huge I wish I could just take a few inches of his height so that I could be taller I mean he would still be at 7 foot
Guanzo said on 30/Dec/17
Same height with 7'5'' Yao Ming

slim said on 30/Dec/17
wierd seeing kevin look so small, hes a big man in his own right
Nik said on 30/Dec/17
@ Jordan

I merely think that Nash looks average compared to Tacko so that's why he could be perceived as 5'9" rather than 6'9", and therefore if Nash was 5'9" Tacko would be 6'7" rather than 7'6"! I Think Tacko is close to or exactly his specified height but I doubt he would under list himself, but hey, who knows?

Rob, in that days of the photo with Nash he was listed 7'4.5" and he is shorter than Mamadou D'ndiaye who was listed 7'4 with shoes on July - 2012.

Yep, and hes still 7'4 as commentators said it this year. His 7-6 listing is typical college basketball inflating. EVERYONE is inflated when they get measured out at the NBA combine. Hes not even 7'5.
The Rock said on 29/Dec/17
Looks like a legit 7'6". Nash is still 6'9".
Sam said on 29/Dec/17
He could be under listing himself, there's a chance he's more a strong 7'7" guy.
Nik said on 29/Dec/17
You could be forgiven for thinking these guys are 5'9" and 6'7"! I think 7'6" is a bit of a push for Tacko!
Dude 173 cm said on 29/Dec/17
Sorry to all only when i said N'diaye is taller, i said that because saw years ago one wrong reference of TheTallestMan (good page) and i don't know how i could think i saw a good photo where N'diaye is taller than Tacko.
Cameron said on 28/Dec/17
Wouldn't want to be this tall tbh.

heightchecker34 said on 28/Dec/17
I don't think people are quite realizing how amazing and surreal it is to see a legit 6'9-6'10 man being absolutely DWARFED in this photo. Nash is not a lanky,thin skeleton. Even at this age, he is a huge man who still works out pretty heavy. To make a man like Nash look like a 15 year old with grey hair is absolutely astonishing. Think how small, the average man would look around Tacko. That Jamie Foxx pic sums it up.

Kevin Nash is not 6'9"-6'10" anymore. He's looking around 6'8" these days. Stack a 90's version of Nash next to this guy and you'd see a noticeable difference.
dicksock said on 28/Dec/17
I'm having a real hard time believing he's only about 4" taller than ~7'2" Kareem. He looks more like 6" taller. Maybe Kareem has shrunk down closer to 7'? He definitely looks about 10" taller than 6'8"-6'9" Kevin Nash. I'd say 7'6" minimum, but possibly 7'7".
Zahid said on 28/Dec/17
Must be at least 7'6". Even considering angles, posture and closeness to camera, he looked about 4.5" taller than Kareem.
Jordan87 said on 28/Dec/17
Vegas,

WOw, Kareem is giving up some posture but I have never seen Kareem look as short as he does in that Pic!!! Even if you Straighten Kareem Out, Fall would have him by 4". Kareem may be around 7'0.5 only nowadays, I doubt he was as tall as he was when he was drafted. He is 70 years old, maybe Kareem was around 1 inch taller in his heyday, but either way this guy is gigantic!!
Vegas said on 28/Dec/17
checker said on 28/Dec/17
Assuming Tako's head is 10 inches long, He looks 7'4 with 6'8 Kevin Nash.

What are you talking about viper? A 6'4 person will not look that tall with 5'8 rob

Challenger was measured roughly 6'3.5 barefoot and you are arguing this and the Nash photo have similar height differences Click Here

If his head is 11 inches long he looks just 7'3. But his real height is 7'4.
checker said on 28/Dec/17
No, hes not this tall. Announcers said he was 7'4 last season. It was surprising they admitted his real height.

99.9999 percent of the time nobody in college basketball is their listed height. Hes not 7'6.

Rob what do you think is his eye level and how long is his head?
Editor Rob: actually looking at some photos with celebs, it's not as big as I thought, so 11 inch and a bigger eye-chin than eye-skull.

Wow, that's one incredible pic! Both of them would make me look like a toddler.
Tunman said on 27/Dec/17
Looks like 9 to 9.5" taller than Nash assuming his head must be 10.5-11" so 7'6 seems fair.Hell,dwarfing a man who himself dwarfs even very tall men.I wonder if this dude will spend his lifetime without meeting anyone taller?btw I doubt there is more than 20 people that tall who are alive
