Bogues was a once in a lifetime type of player and its amazing he carved out a 15 year pro career for himself. At 5-3, he made Spud Webb look tall at 5-7. Bogues is a player who did all of the little things well. His lack of height made him excel in areas that other players with more height overlooked.
For as short as he was, he wasnt a liability on defense. He finished in the top 10 in steals for three seasons and accumulated the 48th most in NBA history. If anything his relentlessness on defense gave opposing offenses fits because he was impossible to prepare for. He was all over the place at all times and caused a young Doc Rivers to remark once, It felt like there were five Muggsy Bogues out there.
