Standing only 5’3" tall, Muggsy Bogues may have been small in stature, but he was never lacking in talent or desire and remains the shortest player to ever lace them up in the NBA.

Over 14 years in the Association, Bogues became a fan favourite, an inspiration, and earned the respect of his peers for his ability to go toe-to-toe with the best in the game regardless of their size.

Our Tracey Holmes caught up with Bogues in Hong Kong for an exclusive one-on-one, where they discussed the growth of the game across the globe including right here in China, the best in the NBA today and what LeBron James and can do for an encore.
