Nate Robinson Height and Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson

Nate Robinson Height

Nate Robinson’s height has been a topic of discussion ever since earning his way into the NBA. He is proof you don’t have to tower above 6 feet to play basketball professionally. In 2010, the point guard became the first three-time slam dunk champion.

So how tall is Nate Robinson? He’s listed as 5’9″ or 1.75m but that’s wearing sneakers. He’s quoted as saying “I’m actually 5’8” and change without shoes”. However when photographed next to Isaiah Thomas, both wearing shoes, Nate looks shorter. Isaiah Thomas is also listed as 5’9”. It would be safe to assume that Nate Robinson’s height is closer to 5’8”.
