Sports - Basketball - Itís a Tall Order

Ask a hundred people what word comes to mind when they think about basketball, and there is a fairly good chance that as many as half of them will say ďTallĒ. Perhaps more than any other sport, basketball has the association with body shape that can put off a lot of young players. Some think because theyíll never grow to six feet tall that they canít ever have a shot at being a pro basketball player. While it is true that basketball is dominated by taller men, it just isnít the case that you need to be a six or seven-foot giant. It may help in terms of being able to dunk the ball, but not everyone on court is going to do that anyway.

Perhaps the most notable case of a basketball player who was shorter than the rest of his team was the former Charlotte Hornets point guard Muggsy Bogues. Although the target of some gentle teasing for his height Ė a tiny 5í 3, small even by the standards of non-sportsmen Ė Bogues was a player who had genuine success in the game, enjoying a career which spanned more than a decade, with his fast-passing, hustling game earning him the very genuine respect of a number of people who would not have believed him capable of what he achieved.

Height is an advantage in pro basketball Ė there is no pretending otherwise. It gives you a better perspective on the basket, more of a chance to slam dunk the ball, and allows you to put up a formidable defensive barrier. However, growing to be seven feet tall will not guarantee you a successful basketball career, and being in the mid fives will not on its own prevent you.
