Russell Westbrook Height

"I'm never satisfied. I'm always trying to get better and learn from my mistakes."

~ Russell Westbrook

American professional basketball player, Russell Westbrook is perhaps best known as a nine-time NBA All-Star and also for earning the NBA Most Valuable Player Award for the 2016–17 season.

There appears to be some contention about Russell Westbrook's real height, with some fans thinking that he is actually taller than his listed height of 6-feet-3 inches.

There have been a few cases in the NBA where the height of the player has been understated (there have been far more cases where it has been overstated though) -- but this isn't one of them.

After taking a careful look at Russell Westbrook, we think he might actually have been slightly below the 6-feet-3 inches mark as he sometimes looked more than 2 inches shorter than a 6-feet-5 inches tall Kobe Bryant.

A few more such height comparisons made our impression of Russell Westbrook's height even stronger.
