Infographic Of The Tallest And Smallest Basketball Players In The NBA History

Basketball is no doubt one of the world's most famous sports. Professional basketball players are considered as famous celebrities much more if they are playing with great skills and intensity. Aside from the talent, basketball players are sometimes getting famous because of their height (small or big) and how it affects their play at the basketball court.

At the NBA, you will notice and see lots of players with towering height and might. They play the center position and often times they handle the rebounding and defensive department. The offense is there but the main thing for them is protecting the board and the basket. This is what Manute Bol, a 7'7 baller, did during his pro career at the NBA league.

If there are giants, there are also basketball players who played in the NBA whose height are below 5'7. Can't believe it? You must! Who can forget the skills and guts of Muggsy Bogues who stand's at 5'3 but lasted for 14 years in the NBA league. With that height, if he ain't skilled enough, he won't even finish a season playing for the teams he landed in.

OUT FOR A NIGHT TIME RUN : ENERGIZER NIGHT RACE FOR SAFE AND ECO-FRIENDLY LIGHTS


Variety is the spice of life, and the same is true for runners, who also like to mix things up in regard to their routine and their training. This need for variation extends all the way to the events and competitions in which runners participate.

To satisfy different quirks and fancies, event organizers have explored a multitude of ways to keep the running community on their toes. This includes running competitions with added obstacles, on off-road tracks and, most recently, holding races at night.

Competitive racing in the dead of night certainly adds a different dimension to the running experience. Being enveloped by darkness requires runners to be more sensitive to the slightest conditions on the road, demanding complete focus and undivided attention. Preparations in the run-up to competition also vary. Training regimen, as well as prep time, tend to differ, too, which only adds to the challenge.
