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.
