Muggsy Bogues is the shortest player to ever play in the NBA. Despite being 5’3″ (1.60 m) tall, the point guard made it to the best league in world and stayed there for 14 years.

Following his retirement from playing basketball in 2001, Bogues had two coaching jobs – one in WNBA with the Charlotte Sting and at United Faith Christian Academy.

While not being directly involved in basketball right now, Bogues, 57, is following the NBA Playoffs. When asked about who is the favorite to win a championship this year, he picked two teams.

“It’s hard to pick that one team and say they’re going to win at all right now because things will continue to materialise in terms of injuries and each matchup causing a different outcome,” Bogues said in an interview with Betway.

“But just from an eyeball standpoint right now, you gotta give the edge to either Golden State or Milwaukee, the defending champs. Even though Middleton went down, Giannis has just become so dominant in all regards, at every step, every category. Seeing that kid continue to put the franchise on his shoulders is a wonderful thing to see.”
