Muggsy Bogues

Former NBA All-star for the Charlotte Hornets

Muggsy Bogues Biography

A former professional basketball point guard and current head coach of the Charlotte Sting of the WNBA. He played for four teams during his 14-season career in the NBA, but is best known for his stint with the Charlotte Hornets. He is the shortest player in NBA history, standing 5'3" and weighing 136 pounds. He played for the Washington Bullets, Charlotte Hornets, Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors. He also was part of the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks, but never played a game for either team.

Bogues played at Dunbar high School in Baltimore, where he was a teammate of future NBA players David Wingate, Reggie Williams, and Reggie Lewis. He went on to play four years at Wake Forest, averaging 11.3 points, 8.4 assists and 3.1 steals per game in his junior year. He followed with a senior campaign in which he averaged 14.8 points, 9.5 assists, and 2.4 steals per game. He also averaged 3.8 rebounds per contest, remarkable because generally much taller players dominate that statistic.

Bogues was drafted twelfth in the talent-laden1987 NBA draft by the Washington Bullets. In his rookie year, Bogues was a teammate of 7'7" Manute Bol, at the time the tallest player to have ever played in the NBA. Bol and Bogues appeared on at least one magazine cover together.

The Miami Heat and Charlotte Hornets were set to enter the NBA for the 1988-89 NBA season. Despite their weakness at the point guard position, Bogues was left unprotected by the Bullets. On June 22, 1988 the Hornets selected him in the expansion draft. As Bogues settled in Charlotte, he established himself as an exceptional passer and a great ball-stealer. His size also helped him to be one of the fastest players on the court. Bogues spent ten years in Charlotte as the Hornets became one of the most popular teams in the NBA and a perennial playoff contender. Charlotte Hornets jerseys were worn by children all over United States and even in Australia. Bogues was one of the most popular players in Hornets history, despite the fact that he never averaged more than 11.2 points per game in a season.

Two games into the 1997-98 NBA season, Bogues' Hornets career ended when he was traded, along with Tony Delk, to the Golden state Warriors in exchange for B.J Armstrong. Bogues played two seasons with the Warriors, and then signed as a free agent with the Toronto Raptors, where he would essentially conclude his career. Although he was later traded to the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks, he did not play a single game for either franchise.

After leaving the NBA, Bogues worked in the real estate business and from 2005-2007 worked as the head coach of the Charlotte Sting in the Women's National Basketball Association. In 2014, he was named the Charlotte Hornets' Ambassador and participated in the teams rebranding.
