Damian Lillard Height

"If you want to look good in front of thousands, you have to outwork thousands in front of nobody."

~ Damian Lillard

Famous professional basketball player, Damian Lillard is known as being one of the two players in Trail Blazers franchise history to become a six-time All-Star.

Not every basketball player is super tall -- Damian Lillard can be said to be on the shorter side -- well,  at least for a basketball player.

He was measured without shoes at the NBA draft combine at 6-feet-1¾ inches, but with shoes, he is listed at 6-feet-3 inches -- and this is another reason why you just can't trust NBA height listings blindly. Damian Lillard is not even close to 6'3" -- even in cowboy boots.

The history of NBA height listings is scattered with mistakes -- intentional and unintentional, big and small -- Damian Lillard's height is just one of them.

After carefully examining his height and comparing it to that of people like, Derrick Rose (6'1½"), Karlie Kloss (6'1½"), Steph Curry (6'2"), we think that the most likely thing which occurred was that Mr. Lillard was measured 6'1¾" in shoes.

The real height of Damian Lillard is

6'1" or 185 cm
