I think Bosh is 6'11" ( With out shoes) and 7'0.25" ( Converse Shoes)
Very possible. He measured 6'10.25" at 19. Bargnani was listed 209 cm in Europe.

Compare the difference between Bosh and 6'9.5" Howard and 6'11" Patrick Ewing on page 25. Bosh is a solid 6'11" maybe 6'11.25"

Question Re: Real NBA Height

Doctors said for Mile Ilic of New Jersey that he will still grow when he was 21-22 (then he was 7'1'').

Is that possible??

Most men are pretty much done growing by 18...some by 20. However for someone that tall that is very possible.

Dorell Wright is now listed at 6'9" on NBA.com while Tyrus Thomas is now listed 6'8". Why didn't they update Bynum to 7'1"?

This is my estimate

Michael Jordan - 6'4 3/4"
Dennis Rodman- 6'6"
Scottie Pippen- 6'7"

I would give MJ a full 6'5", but I agree with Rodman and Pippen.

I'd give Jordan 6'5.5" because I think Kobe is that height and Kobe and Jordan are the same height.

Michael Jordan was never over 6'5" in his prime and he have also a surgery in his sophomore season in the NBA that is why he only played 21 games in the Regular Season. ( which means he is probably 6'4.75" in his peak)

When you are 6'4 3/4" and 6'5.5" the margin of difference is only .75 inches that is why you can see guys in the NBA, that can actually look like the same height when they are wearing a much thicker shoes. That is what you called as the Barkley or D- Wade effect suddenly they could appear taller in some of the pictures in the gallery.

I still believe Michael Jordan's NBA Pre Draft Measurement of 6'4 7/8, which is technically 6'4 3/4, when you rounded it down to the nearest height chart.



6'4.5" Jerry Stackhouse and 6'4.75" Michael Jordan




6-4 3/4 Michael Jordan and 6-7 Grant Hill



Michael Jordan 6'4.75"", 6'5" Chris Mullin, 6'7.25" Magic Johnson, 6'9" Larry Bird, 6'5" Clyde Drexler and 6'0" John Stockton.

6'4 7/8" would be rounded up to 6'5" for pre-draft stuff. They always round up. That means Kobe is still only 6'5" too. Maybe 6'5" for both Jordan and Kobe?

If Charles Barkley is rounded to 6'4 3/4" from 6'4 5/8" shouldn't Jordan be rounded to 6'5" if he is 6'4 7/8"? That would make Jordan a 1/4" of an inch taller than Barkley.



Jordan and 6'7.5" Scottie Pippen


If Kobe is still 6'4.75" then 6'5"(6'4 7/8") makes sense for Jordan
