Many people would struggle with the idea of a 5'3" player excelling on the court, but Muggsy Bogues didn't. While he was the smallest player in NBA history, Bogues' ability as an exceptional passer, a great ball-stealer, and one of the fastest players on the court erased any notion that his height would hinder him on the floor.
