Allen Iverson Height

I'd rather have more heart than talent any day.

Allen Iverson can be described as one of the most influential players in NBA History. His success is even more impressive when you consider his short stature in sports like Basketball where giants rule.

About Allen Iverson's real height

But how short is Allen Iverson exactly? Well, Allen is only short in the basketball world. His height has been listed as 6 feet tall throughout his illustrious career.

It may surprise some people but NBA height listings are often incorrect. The NBA did not even have a standard regarding whether players were measured with or without shoes.

It is only in season 2019-2020 that the NBA instituted a new measuring standard, measuring players without shoes. Due to this change, the height of numerous players declined, from 1 to 3 inches, while others grew.

Allen Iverson has also been described as being 5 feet 11 inches tall too. From what we have seen of him, we think this height must be without shoes.

The real height of Allen Iverson is

5 ft 11 in (180 cm)
