LeBron James stands 6 feet 9 inches (2.06 meters), and although he is not the tallest, he is taller than most players in the NBA.

It should be noted that official player heights are occasionally rounded up or down, and their real heights might vary based on factors such as posture, footwear, etc.

However, LeBron is still shorter than Shaquille O'Neal, who is 7 feet 1 inch (2.16 meters) tall. O'Neal is almost four inches taller than LeBron.

Shaq is considered one of the tallest players in NBA history, while LeBron is often regarded as being between normal and above-average height for a basketball player.

Due to many circumstances, including camera angles and footwear, LeBron may look to be as tall as Dwight Howard, who is listed at 6'10".

James has a wider wing span or a different body type that gives him the appearance of looking taller than he actually is.

Before the 2019–2020 season, the NBA stated that they would test players' heights without shoes. LeBron grew in height by half an inch, while many other players saw their height decline.

LeBron was measured at 6' 8.5'' and according to the new rule modification, he is now officially listed as 6'9".
