The average height of players in the NBA League is around 6'7. Same is the case with other divisional and team averages.

The average height IS around 6'7". Statistics done on the Eastern division (by myself) yielded an average of 6'7.1" and a mean of 6'8". The standard deviation was found to be 3.89 inches, bigger than the usual 3 inches attributed to the general population.

The average height is about 6'7.5. We have some short players like Derek Fisher which is 6'1 (1.85m) and some tall players like Chris Bosh at 6'11 and average players like Kobe Bryant at 6'6 and Lebron James at 6'8. If I get to be a basketball player I would like to be 6'10.

The average height of an NBA player is around 6 feet 7 inches. The tallest NBA player ever was Gheorghe MureÅŸan, who was 7 feet 7 inches tall. In contrast, the shortest NBA player ever was Tyrone "Muggsy" Bogues, who was 5 feet 3 inches tall.
