There are NBA predraft. The only thing I can say is get video of that LA game and you'll see when Kobe was standing there with Lebron, he barely came up to his eyes.
I was blown away when I saw that and knew that somebody's height had to be false. Either Kobe is only 6'5 tops or Lebron is taller than the 6'8 he's listed as. Plus, it's a known fact that a lot of pro heights are falsified. Kobe is 6'5, 6'6. That's how they got away with calling him 6'8.
Also Calvin, I want to know what show and when it aired that Kobe was measured as 6'6 on t. Proof of the Amare measurement please Also keep in mind that the picture wasn't taken yesterday. In fact, doctors down in Pheonix measured him and said he could possibly still pass the 7 foot mark. Deepestvoice, how do you know for a fact that Lebron was 4 inches taller than Kobe?? I'm going to need a picture, because I know for a fact Kobe is a legit 6"6" read previous post.
BTW, if and when you do show me a link to the picture, i want them both standing staright especially since Kobe walks with a hunch and Lebron has perfect posture seeing them from top to bottom none of those pictures only showing their head levels because you can't see the other things that factor into their height.
I've probably not read any kobe messages recently Kobe does look to be 6'5". Basketball players exaggerate their height all the time. I remember Howard Stern commenting on Magic and Shaq's height. He's a little over 6'7. Did you see when he was standing next to 6'9 Lebron James in the L.
Lebron had him by 4 inches minimum. Amare is about 6'9 without shoes. He's more like 6'9. Anyhow, my high school teammate, Drew Bryant, is Kobe's cousin and he even told me that Kobe's 6'5. I've met him once, but since I'm only 6' I couldn't tell for sure. But I'll go with Drew's word and say he's 6'5. Kobe is a legit 6"6". One asked was his height and he was even measured on TV. And yes, he was listed as 6"7" before because of the mini-fro he had going on at the time.
So yeah, Kobe is definitely a solid 6"6". He's not a legit 6' The angle isnt the best.. Rob, action on this one? This isn't an exact science but check this out. NBA listed heights are in shoes.
