His height actually gave him an advantage of sorts in some areas.

Like they mentioned in the video, he could steal the ball easier because he was lower to the ground, and would simply steal your dribble...

Just want to share my favorite Muggsy Bogues moment:
Quote:
When Johnny was coaching with the Hornets in 1995 they had a good team. Glen Rice, Mourning, Johnson. Series was tied at 2 and Hornets had a chance to win game 5 in Chicago. On the biggest possession of the game, Muggsy had the ball with the Hornets down 1. Jordan backed off of him and told him: “Shoot it you ****ing midget!” Muggsy shot it, didn’t come close. A year later Muggsy actually told Johnny Bach that he believes that single play ruined his career. His shot never recovered.

Anybody saw prime Muggsy play? How could he score? I only remember his days in Toronto where he was just a solid PG. I remember he got hurt quite alot during his last years with Charlotte.

He's a damned good defender right. Not only in steals but his stocky frame was immovable in the post. Also, point guards tend to settle for fadeaway jumpshots when posting up against him.
