@Rob: 6’5.5 is excessive. Cam Reddish his Duke teammate only measured 6’6.5 at the combine and we aren’t sure how early in the day it took place this time. Zion looks no taller than 6’5” flat next to him or Tacko Fall
viper said on 17/May/19
I believe Reddish measured 6-6 3/8, rounded up
viper said on 17/May/19
Other players refused to get measured and weighed as well.

I'm bummed we won't know Zions vertical leap
Canson said on 17/May/19
Depending on how early Reddish’s measurement was at the combine it’s possible Zion is a weak 6’5” although he does look a solid 6’5 on the court a lot. Reddish also measured 6’6.5 at the Olympics so I’m assuming he’s around there

@Viper: I was wrong. Maybe afternoon measurements the first day. But not sure about the 2nd. They were posted early in the afternoon so they had already occurred. Reddish’s Case is odd. I saw 6’6.5 barefoot and 6’8 in shoes then 6’6.5 in shoes. I agree with you he may only be 6’6” at a low barefoot but not less than that. Zion could even be a weak 6’5” if that’s the case. How much do you think he had on Barrett and on Zion?
Ellis 6'8 said on 16/May/19
@viper: Most definitely.
viper said on 16/May/19
Cam Reddish measured 6-6 which was obvious.

Didn't look any taller than that on the court
viper said on 16/May/19
Is Zion too scared to get measured and weighed

Check out this Twitter thread. Everyone knows he's 6-5

It appears that Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, RJ Barrett and Darius Garland did not get measured at the NBA Combine in Chicago.

Canson said on 15/May/19
@Ellis: I bet if anything he measures above 6’5. Maybe 6’5.5 perhaps if he has been laying around or it’s not a Low equivalent or afternoon equivalent. I wouldn’t be surprised with all the hype if he’s listed at 6’6” barefoot although he really doesn’t look over 6’5”.
Canson said on 15/May/19
@Viper and Ellis: oddly enough the measurements held today were held In the afternoon but that does not mean that they are true afternoon measurements. The taller guys like Bol and Fall May be a bit further from it because of their gigantic heights but I see the more avg size guys coming in near their morning heights if they laid around etc
Ellis 6'8 said on 14/May/19
For an afternoon height, or the standard here, I have Zion at 6'5 flat, Lonzo at 6'4.5-75, and Lamelo at probably 6'5 flat.
Ellis 6'8 said on 14/May/19
@viper: Depends when they measure him, I can see him being probably 6'5.5 after an hour(combine measurements usually), if they do it in the afternoon he will be closer to 6'5-6'5.25, let's see.
viper said on 13/May/19
He's at the combine which is surprising
Canson said on 9/May/19
@Ellis: Zion
Ellis 6'8 said on 7/May/19
@Canson: Who do you think is taller Zion or Lonzo Ball?
Canson said on 17/Apr/19
@Rob: Zion is overlisted. I have to agree with Viper on this one. There is no reference to 6’5 1/2. He measured 6’5” flat
viper said on 17/Apr/19
He needs to be listed at a flat 6-5 since that's what he measured
viper said on 15/Apr/19
There is nothing Zion could do that would hurt his draft stock. He could tear his ACL right now and be the number 1 pick
Canson said on 14/Apr/19
@Ellis: yea it may do more harm than good. He doesn’t need to go as he will be the #1 pick this year
Ellis said on 13/Apr/19
Zion is a solid 6'5, when he gets up he is probably around 6'5.75, at his low he is a bit under 6'5.
@Canson: Right, usually very famous and skilled players don't attend like Zion himself. In Zions case there are two reasons, one: he has nothing to prove at the combine he is guaranteed a top 3 pick, two: he will probably be undersized, especially since he plays at the power forward.
Canson said on 4/Apr/19
@Viper: i doubt Zion will attend the combine
viper said on 4/Apr/19
What he will weigh at the combine is more interesting to me.

He weighed 272 in 2017
Canson said on 2/Apr/19
They could be the same height or Barrett like a smidge taller. I doubt Barrett is more than 6’5.5 and doubt Zion is over 6’5” flat or maybe 196cm. 6’5.5 is too much for him
Jackattack said on 31/Mar/19
Some pics he looks taller than rj other pics rj looks taller and in some other pics they look the same I would say soon is 6’5 flat for sure does not dip under that. As for rj 6’5.5
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
He isn’t over a flat 6’5”
Canson said on 23/Mar/19
@Viper: if you had to guess would you think he would be the full 6’5” at a low or do you think he may dip under? Also I think Barrett May be a stronger 6’5”
Canson said on 23/Mar/19
You would probably see a full 2” between he and Lebron or at least close to 2”. I doubt he’s any taller than he measured in 2018 6’5 flat
Sean73 said on 22/Mar/19
I'd buy 6 foot 5 and 3 quarters and 268lbs.
Jackson said on 17/Mar/19
Not more than 6’5” they list him at 6’7” to increase his draft interest. He’s also constantly getting Lebron James comparisons and people think they’re the same size. Not true at all. I think Lebron has a solid 2 inches on him. I remember hearing he measured at 6’5” flat about a year ago... and Lebron measured 6’7.25”

Also he’s listed at 285lbs... that just seems absurd.. 6’5” 285??? I’m not buying it.
Canson said on 12/Mar/19
@Rob: he likely won’t measure. In basketball they are allowed to skip the combine as Lonzo didn’t measure or attend either neither do Jayson Tatum or Markelle Fultz I could see zion maybe measuring close to 6’5.5 (early morning) if he did however. He looks about as close to 6’5” at a low. That would be the better listing than 6’5.5 because that measurement for him doesn’t even exist. Someone else said that on the site because he’s listed 6’7”. Coach K called him 6’6/6’7 before the season began which is his height in shoes 6’6+ which points to a solid 6’5” barefoot
Canson said on 9/Mar/19
@Mickie: there is no record of 6’5.5. The forum Rob got it from was from a poster who didn’t know what they’re talking about and just assuming because he’s listed 6’7” that he’s 6’6/6’7. Now I can believe that he’s 6’5” at a low perhaps but quite honestly, if RJ Barrett only measured 6’5” and still is, Zion may just be 6’4.5 or weak 6’5”. Barrett could be perhaps 6’5.5 as at times he looks maybe half inch taller than Zion
viper said on 8/Mar/19
Let's just say the 6-5.5 is fake news
Mickie said on 8/Mar/19
Interesting. I thought this guy had measured 6'5" flat - hadn't heard the 5.5 figure.
viper said on 6/Mar/19
-Tremendous physical profile for his age. Developed, yet still has quite a bit of room to fill out. Wide shoulders. Long arms with a 6' 10 wingspan. Measured 6' 6.5 in shoes.

Barrett is 6-5. You are thinking of Reddish Canson
viper said on 6/Mar/19
That was in shoes. Barrett is 6-5.

He's clearly shorter than 6-5 measured Reddish.
Canson said on 6/Mar/19
@Rob: only thing is the measurement that the article refers to is the same measurement from USA basketball that was a solid 6’5”. The person either made a mistake of embellished him to be 6’5.5. I do agree that a 6’7” listing could mean that 6’5.5 but in his case it was 6’5”. But I think 6’5” is his low
Editor Rob
It will be interesting to see eventually what he gets for a draft measurement.
Canson said on 5/Mar/19
@Viper: Barrett shows 6’6.5 here the last time he was measured in 2017. Not sure if they made a mistake or not but they may have because he was previously that in shoes. But he does look taller than Zion ordinarily. I’m curious to see what Zion measures. I doubt over 6’5” flat. The 6’5.5 that Rob saw is someone on that site mistaking the information or misrepresenting it as it’s the same time he measured 6’5” flat. Scroll down to 2017 for Barrett

Canson said on 5/Mar/19
@Viper: I actually see Barrett measuring 6’6.5 and 6’5.5. He’s taller than Zion. Zion looks 6’5” barefoot on the court to me. Maybe Cam is 6’6” and change.
Canson said on 5/Mar/19
@Rob: it is a misinterpretation. I don’t see him measuring 6’5.5 on any other pages. But this is the same type of page where they say that Michael jordan is 6’4.5 or 6’4 7/8 and Barkley 6’4 5/8. Not saying Zion hasn’t grown but I think that if he has then the 6’5.5 is an early morning and 6’5 at a low. He measured 6’5” at the USA b-ball camp that is in question in that thread. However it believe that is a normal low for him today
Editor Rob
It could have been, though if he was listed at 6ft 7, there is a chance he was 6ft 5.5 barefoot.
gsjackson said on 5/Mar/19
515,000 people would be about a quarter of the Instagram followers he had in high school. He's the most ballyhooed amateur player since LeBron James, an athletic freak with the build of an NFL linebacker and a 49-inch vertical jump. The celebrities come out when he's playing, including James and Barack Obama. Actually, he probably won't be better known next year, since there's no way he can live up to the current hype as an NBA player.
Canson said on 3/Mar/19
@Rob: where is the source for him measuring 6’5.5?
Editor Rob
Actually it might be misinterpretation, see This thread.

Zion is 19 this year so i doubt that he stop growing. Maybe a low now 6'5 1/4 but maybe he would reach this listing at his low a year later.

In general, boys stop growing between 16-18. There is always exceptions, but 18 is typically where it stops. Some will peak as late as 19 but that's not common. Anyway, I think Zion is no more than 6'5 1/2
viper said on 3/Mar/19
RJ Barrett measured 6-5

Cam Reddish measured 6-6
viper said on 3/Mar/19
No, this is a guy who clearly matured early. He probably stopped growing by 15.

And where did the 6-5.5 come from.
viper said on 3/Mar/19
Rob puts up Zion Williamson just like that, yet he hasn't put up Hall of famer Rickey Jackson who I requested over a year ago.
Editor Rob
To be fair, his height is searched for a lot more than Jackson's, though nobody is ever ruled out.
SnerhagAip777 said on 3/Mar/19
Born in 2000. Holy . I thought this was a joke. But apparantly he was born in the US. He looks a hell lot older than that.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/19
I must still be living in a web world from ten years ago as I can't understand why 515,000 people would be viewing the above photo and liking it. If he was a big NBA star I could understand more! He looks a big lad anyway, but not sure why he is notable.
Editor Rob
I think next year he will be a more known name, but even as a prospect he has a big following

I think Barrett measured 6’6.5. I still agree with Viper. Zion doesn’t look over 6’5” on the court with anyone. 6’5.5 may be a morning height for him

@Rob: where did it say he measured 6’5.5?
Ellis said on 28/Feb/19
Sounds right for a basketball measurement, RJ Barrett is probably 6'6 barefoot for a basketball measurement.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
