Five Best 6’6″ NBA Players

Here are my picks of the five best 6’6″ players currently in the NBA (in no particular order).

  • Devin Booker
  • DeMar DeRozan
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
  • Jaylen Brown
  • Zion Williamson

Don’t agree? Let me know in the comments at the bottom of the post.

Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns

Devin Booker is a superstar, and one of the most lethal scorers in the NBA.

He is just 27 years old, but has already played 8 NBA seasons (2015-present). He has averaged over 20 points per game in all but his rookie season (2015-2016).

Some of Booker’s other achievements so far, include: 3x NBA All-Star, All-NBA First Team (2022), NBA All-Rookie First Team (2016), and All-Star 3-point shootout champion (2018).

He also won a gold medal with Team USA at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Booker made it to the NBA Finals once in 2021, losing to the Milwaukee Bucks. He looks to lead the Phoenix Suns back to the finals this season, teamed up with other stars Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal.

DeMar DeRozan, Chicago Bulls

DeMar DeRozan has been one of the most consistent scorers in the NBA over the past decade. He has averaged over 20 points per game for 10 straight seasons!

The 34 year old is currently in his 15th NBA season (2009-present), and his third NBA team (Toronto, San Antonio, Chicago). Early in his career, DeRozan was known for his highlight-reel dunks, but has since become a master of the mid-range.

Some of his NBA career achievements include: 6x NBA All-Star, and 3x All-NBA Team (2x Second Team, 1x Third Team). He is also the all-time franchise scoring leader for the Toronto Raptors.

DeRozan also has two gold medals with Team USA (2014 World Cup, 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics).

Despite his great individual numbers, DeRozan has not had much NBA playoff success. The furthest his team has been is the Eastern Conference finals (Toronto Raptors, 2016). His current team (Chicago Bulls) is not very good, so it seems like his lack of playoff success will continue unless a trade is made.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, OKC Thunder

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, a.k.a. SGA, is possibly the best young player in the NBA (25 and under). The shifty guard has improved every year (2018-present), and has become an unstoppable offensive force the past couple of seasons.

Some of SGA’s achievements so far, include: NBA All-Star (2023), All-NBA First Team (2023), and All-Rookie Second Team (2019). His scoring has gone from 10.8ppg (rookie season), to over 30ppg last season (2022-2023).

He also led Canada to a bronze medal at the 2023 FIBA World Cup (beating Team USA).

SGA is about to enter his prime, and looks to be a potential MVP candidate in the upcoming seasons.

Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics

Jaylen Brown is one of the most important players for the championship contending Boston Celtics. He is a great scorer, and his size / athleticism makes him one of the most versatile wing players in the league.

Brown has improved each season in the league (2016-present), and has averaged over 20ppg the past four seasons.

Some of his NBA career achievements include: 2x NBA All-Star, All-NBA Second Team (2023), and All-Rookie Second Team (2017).

Recently, Jaylen Brown is perhaps best known for signing the largest “supermax” contract in NBA history — a 5 year, $304 million deal.

Zion Williamson, New Orleans Pelicans

Zion Williamson was one of the most hyped players EVER when he entered the NBA in 2019. His ridiculous strength, athleticism, and leaping ability made him must watch TV.

Unfortunately, injuries and weight problems over the past couple seasons have lessened the hype around Zion.

Despite this, he has still put up great numbers when healthy (25ppg, 7rpg, 3.6apg). Some of Zion’s achievements so far in his young career include: 2x NBA All-Star, and NBA All-Rookie First Team (2020).

Zion is still very young (just 23 years old), and yet to enter his prime. If he can stay healthy (and in shape), he has some of the most potential in the NBA.

Other Notable 6’6″ NBA Players

Some other notable, or young & upcoming players that are 6 foot 6 inches tall, include: Cade Cunningham, Mikal Bridges, Klay Thompson, Dillon Brooks, Lonzo Ball, RJ Barrett, and Draymond Green.
