The shortest player to ever play in the NBA – Muggsy Bogues – addressed the infamous story about Michael Jordan called him ‘midget.’ According to him, the reality is different.

While admitting that the Bulls legends likes to mess with him and take shots at his height, the former NBA guard revealed what MJ really called him.

“MJ always liked to f*ck with me,” Bogues said on Showtime Basketball, via Reddit. “Even till this day, he’ll put his hand up high for me to give him a hi-five and I’ll put my hand down low, you come down to give me a lo-five…There was stuff about he called me a midget which is not true. He always call me ‘short lil fella’ or ‘lil ass.'”
