Legendary NBA Guard
Muggsy Bogues Biography
Muggsy Bogues was born January 9, 1965 and is a retired basketball player and current head coach of the United Faith Christian Academy boys' basketball team. The shortest player ever to play in the NBA, the 5 ft 3 in Bogues played point guard for four teams during his 14-season career in the National Basketball Association. Best known for his involvement with the Charlotte Hornets, he also played for the Washington Bullets, ++Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors++ and served as head coach of the now-defunct WNBA team Charlotte Sting.
Bogues was drafted twelfth overall in the 1987 NBA Draft by the Washington Bullets, and was part of a talent-laden draft class that also included [[David Robinson]], Reggie Miller, Scottie Pippen and Kevin Johnson. In his rookie year, Bogues was a teammate of Manute Bol who stood 7 feet 7 inches (231 cm) tall. Bol and Bogues appeared on three magazine covers together.
Despite his height, Bogues managed to block 39 shots throughout his NBA span including one on Patrick Ewing. This happened on April 14, 1993 in the first quarter when Ewing was pulling the ball back to go up for the shot and Bogues stripped him of the ball. He was credited with the block though; footage of his block was shown in 1996 on NBA Action.
