Before it was the likes of Mugsy Bogues, a 5'3 point guard for the Charlotte Hornets, then it was Spud Webb, of the Atlanta Hawks who graced the NBA slam dunk competition despite being just 5'7, and now it's the turn of Earl Boykins to light the NBA court on fire. He is now a 12 year professional basketball player in the NBA. He is currently playing for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Earl made his NBA debut on February 7,2011. He will soon celebrate his anniversary. He is currently averaging 8.4 points and 2.6 assists in just 17.8 minutes for the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Milwaukee Bucks is slowly creeping in the playoffs picture behind their mighty mouse Earl Boykins. They have a 19 wins and 27 losses record. They are just 1 win behind the 8th seeded Charlotte Bobcats who have 20 wins and 27 losses.
Earl can shoot three pointers, he can pass the ball in an average way, he can run fastbreaks, he can be a go-to-guy and he can create mismatches despite his size. He is a big proof that basketball is not only for the big guys. Just watch how he plays and you will be amazed at this little guy's abilities.
