Known for his high-flying dunks and relentless playing style, Westbrook's height has been a subject of curiosity among fans and basketball enthusiasts alike. To clear any ambiguity, we will explore Russell Westbrook's height, and shed light on how his physical attributes have contributed to his remarkable career.


Russell Westbrook’s height

Russell Westbrook's professional career has been nothing short of extraordinary. The “triple-double king” has a huge fan following behind his explosive game play. As a dynamic point guard, he has consistently displayed exceptional athleticism and finishing at the rim. His acrobatic dunks even flattened the opposition supporters.


Listed at 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 meters) tall, Westbrook falls slightly below the average height for NBA player. Even as a point guard, Westbrook’s height would not comply with the NBA’s average of 6 feet 4 inches. But what sets him apart is his incredible wingspan, which measures around 6 feet 8 inches (2.03 meters).


This wingspan, combined with his vertical leap and sheer athleticism, allows Westbrook to compete against taller opponents. He uses this to his advantage and memorizes fans with explosive finishing at the rim and even excels in rebounding.


Russell Westbrook’s quest for the Championship.

With his athleticism, never-die attitude and willingness to cross all the limits, Russell Westbrook has set numerous records in the NBA. He currently holds the record of most triple-double performances (198) in the history of the league with closest active player LBJ at 107 triple doubles. Russ finished 4 complete seasons with a triple-double average – which is also a record of its own.


Westbrooks unparalleled performances handed him a place in the NBA's 75th Anniversary team. He won the 2017 regular season MVP award. He led the league in scoring, in assists, and even made it to the 9 All Star games. The only thing missing from such an impressive resume is the NBA championship.


The UCLA product joined the NBA as 4th overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft. He played and formed many super-teams like 2012 OKC with Kevin Durant and James Harden, 2019 Houston Rockets with James Harden and Clint Capela, 2022 with LeBron James and Anthony Davis, and very recently with Paul George and Kwahi Leonard in the LA Clippers. Sadly injuries to teammates, inexperience and to some extend poor show by the team distanced Westbrook from the NBA championship.


He did make it to the conference finals in 2019, and also in the NBA finals in 2012, but couldn’t achieve the final goal. Nevertheless, Westbrook still remains as an extraordinary player, who delivers on both ends of the floor, despite having comparably smaller height. His relentless energy and competitive drive make up for any perceived disadvantage.


He possesses exceptional speed, agility, and leaping ability, allowing him to navigate through defenders and create scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. Westbrook's incredible athleticism, combined with his mental toughness, has established him as a formidable force on the basketball court, even when facing taller opponents.
