Marginal talent. I know several guys who are better who didn't end up playing college ball.

superstar? The biggest award he's gotten was 6th man of the year, he wasn't an all-star at all during his career. Good player yes, superstar no.

No one else finds it funny that he is being trained by Muggsy?

Jordan backed off of him and told him: “shoot it you f—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.

Jordan mentally destroyed that midget so thoroughly that he has him baby-sitting his nephew decades later.

He reminds me a lot like Michael except for the fact that he is 4 inches shorter and has a foot less on his vertical

This thread is like 3 and half years old. I'm guessing the kid didn't pan out.

Dell Curry wasn't a superstar, or even a star. He was one of the league's best shooters, but Steph is in an entirely different stratosphere even as a shooter.

I've said it before but... of all the ruthless Michael Jordan myth stories, this one never made a lot of sense to me.

For starters, Muggsy Bogues grew up on the streets of Baltimore. I would put a significant amount of money on the notion that he was probably called a midget with startling regularity from his competition on the streets, in high school, college, and the NBA. It's the easiest and laziest insult to make in his direction. If I had to guess, he was probably over any and all short jokes by the time he was dominating folks at Dunbar. If nothing else, I imagine he used them as a form of motivation.

On top of that, taking into account that Jordan's supposed line took place during the 1995 playoffs, it's worth noting that, after Bogues blew his knee out and missed all but six games the following year, he returned to the hardwood and shot a career-best 41.7 percent from the arc in 1997 (and led the league in assist-to-turnover ratio).

I know, off topic and nothing about the above really matters. It's just my weird thing I point out every time I see that story pop up.
