5′ 3″ Muggsy Bogues once averaged 4 RPG - 7 footers Brook Lopez and Frank Kaminsky are currently averaging under 4 RPG.


For the majority of NBA fans, random information about Muggsy Bouges averaging 4 rebounds per game probably doesn't mean a lot, however, when you put it to context knowing 7 footers like Brook Lopez and Frank Kaminsky in today's game are currently grabbing less than 4 rebounds per game, you see how this is actually an incredible accomplishment.

Muggsy was the shortest player in league history standing at 5′3″ but often had the biggest heart on the court. During the 93/94 season Muggsy averaged 4.1 rebounds per game while Brook Lopez and Frank Kaminsky are on pace to become just the 5th and 6th 7 footers in league history to average at least 20 minutes a game, and not pull down at least 4 rebounds.

Brook was never known for his rebounding skills even though at some point in his career he was considered to be one of the most talented big guys in the league with an array of moves on the offensive end of the floor. Frank Kaminsky, on the other hand, has entered the league 3 years ago and even with his 7-foot frame never averaged more than 4.5 rebounds per game.
