Default How Tall is Tim Duncan?

I always wondered how he was so dominate and I realized that height doesn't get enough credit. He is listed at 6 ft 11. But he can't fool anybody anymore. I think he is 7 ft 1. He looked taller than Bogut. Definitely was taller than Biedrins. Tim Duncan is taller than most guys that list themselves at 7 feet. With Asik, it's hard to tell because Asik has big hair, so hard to tell how tall he stacks up against him. There was a Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan height comparison pic. Garnett's eyes and mouth was higher, but Duncan had a much bigger head, so it was hard to tell who won that battle.

But all I'm saying is that this Duncan guy lists himself at 6 ft 11 so that he can get labeled as the best power forward to ever play. The guy doesn't look long when you just look at his body alone. But when he stands next to others, you usually notice how much higher his head is than everyone else's. What is his exact height? Is he a legit 7 ft 1 in sneakers? I bet in real life he looks like a freak.

He grew to 7-1, but shrunk to 6-5 after all the steroids he took. Amirite?

Default Re: How Tall is Tim Duncan?

At his final draft workout he was measured at 6'10 " barefoot. So he is 6'11", it's just a barefoot height listing.

He's obviously over 7 feet with shoes on then, which makes him 7 feet compared to most other NBA players (90%+) that are listed by in shoes height.

Good job of posting those pictures. They don't actually reveal anything. Especially not the one with Dirk in it. You have no idea where Duncan is standing.


To answer the quality and not at all unnecessary OP, it would seem fair to suggest Duncan is say a half inch shorter than KG, who is probably just over 7'.

That's the joke. It doesn't matter how tall he is. Not one single person will think different of him if his height isn't exactly what it's listed as.

Yes he is 6'11. The issue is that most of the people who list themselves as 7footers really aren't that tall.

Allow me to pull back the curtain.

Jordan is 6'4
Dwight is 6'9
Melo is 6'6
Chris paul is 5'11
Kevin love is 6'8
Spencer hawes is 6'10
Nash is 6'1
Magic is 6'7
lebron is 6'7 (Not 100% on this one since he was so young when measured)



90% of all nba players fudge their height. There are a few who are listed at their real height. Shaq, Durant, Garnett Duncan,

Magic is more like 6'5" but yeah, you're righty although the players aren't the ones fudging their heights , it's the league or the team. It starts in high school and goes from there.
