The diminutive point guard became the first player in NBA history to lead the league in both scoring and assists during the 1973 season. His quickness in the open floor would rival that of De’Aaron Fox, John Wall, and Russell Westbrook—a crucial attribute for Tiny, given his slender 6’1’’, 150-pound frame. His speed, combined with a terrific mid-range jumper and pinpoint passing ability, made the former King a nightmare defensive matchup for anyone.

When Clyde Frazier hung up his PUMA’s following the 1980 season, Tiny unofficially took the torch, as a key (guard) ambassador for the brand. He went onto capture his first and only NBA title as a member of the ’81 Celtics, nabbing All-NBA Second Team honors in the process. That was a big deal for Archibald who had missed the entire 1978 campaign due to an Achilles’ injury, and subsequently faced questions about whether he could still get it done on the court. Spoiler: He could.
