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.
Aside from Muggsy and Manute, there are many more basketball
players with notable height that plays in the NBA with such guts and pride.
