Was just watching sports center and Kurt Rambis just described him as being 6-7 or 6-8 280lbs, that may be A bit of A stretch. I notice a lot of analyst when describing Lebrons weight add 10 to 20 pounds each time

He's at least 6'8 or bigger and 265 or more

My guess is about 6'9 275

I think he's 6'7" without shoes. With? About 6'8" and he weighs like 250-260 probably.

He's probably 6'8, as he's listed, and the 250 they list him at sounds about right as well. I know a lot of people throw around that he weighs 270 or whatever, but I'm not sure these people realize just how big that is lol. Physically he looks to be about the size of David West, who is also listed at 250 pounds.

Thing is, Lebron came in on the combine at 6'8 245.... He's gained way more than 5 pounds in his career....

Was his combine weight that high?

Then I'd say he's around 265, probably.

Well he's definitely put on pure muscle, and 20 pounds of pure muscle is a lot. Maybe he's just really fat on the inside, and that's driving his weight up. I can't believe he weighed in at 245 at the combine.

Not hard for me to believe, I'm 6'4 underweight and I'm 210. Lebron looks 60 pounds heavier lol

I've stood next to about 10-15 nba players and noticed the same thing every time, NONE were as tall as they are listed, most were 2-3 inches shorter.

Am I alone here? I thought it was common knowledge that player's size's are almost always exaggerated :shrug:

saw him last weekend in Toronto at real sports bar and grill. There's no way he's 6'9". Closer to 6'7". His weight, well, he's a tank, but he was wearing all kinds of cold weather clothes so I couldn't judge that.

great thread.

he was 6ft8 245lbs going into draft. i remember his last yr in CLE a trainer said he'd grown almost a full inch, gained 19lbs in his career to that point, standing next to ben wallace he looked the same size (maybe bigger).

id say a legit 6ft9 265lbs. thats a legit C size in today's NBA combined w/ elite PG skill set. FREAK ATHLETE.

I'd say around 6,9"

He's overcompensating with his shoes, I think.

Probably 6'11"

His height has been under listed by the NBA for some time now.

It is a fact, LBJ is the first 8 foot NBA player and he is 569 pounds of pure muscle and awesomeness.

6'8 and at the very least 260

I don't think its his height that people question, its more so his weight. Considering how strong and quick he is at the same time.

6'8 prob 270 his body fat % is so low so he has a lot of lean muscle

I would guess from seeing him up close last year in Houston, that he is 6'8", 265.

he came in at 6-7.25 without shoes and 245 pounds http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/LeBron-James-2967/ . he surely added weight so i would guess between 260-270 and probably got to 6-8

Probably about 6'7'' without shoes and I'd say anywhere between 260-270.

He's really 5 ft 9, they just make him play with a bunch of shorter stand-ins to make him look taller

Insane, if you look at him during the combine and than now, It seems he's added more than 25 -30 pounds.

I saw him at the mall the other day, and he was no taller than 5'3 and maybe 140 pounds soaking wet, but he PLAY big, so he looks bigger than he is. When he jumps, he stays in the air for so long that it looks like he's just standing there, when in reality, he's just jumping really high.

agree, all you gotta do is look at dwight who's 265 and clearly bigger than lebron to realize lebron isnt 260+. he's 6"8 250 give or take a few pounds.

exactly. figure the camera adds 10lbs and 1". do the math. prolly something like 10-12 camera per ball game. there ya go. he only looks that big on tv. this has been proven scientifically..
