Muggsy Bogues

Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues, is a retired player known for being the shortest player ever in the NBA, standing at 5 ft 3 in. Bogues played point guard for four teams during his 14-season career, most notably for the Charlotte Hornets, where he spent ten seasons.

He also played for the Washington Bullets, Golden State Warriors, and Toronto Raptors. Bogues was known for his impressive assist and steal stats, finishing in the top seven in assists for six consecutive seasons and in the top ten in steals for three of those seasons​​.

Bogues was left unprotected in the 1988 NBA expansion draft and was selected by the Charlotte Hornets. His initial role on the team was limited, but he flourished under coaches Gene Littles and Allan Bristow, becoming a key starter and a recognizable figure for the Hornets alongside players like Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson​​.

DJ Augustin

Following an impressive sophomore year at the University of Texas, where he averaged 19.2 points and 5.8 assists, DJ Augustin was drafted 9th overall by the Charlotte Bobcats in the 2008 NBA Draft.

Over his NBA career, Augustin has displayed strong playmaking and shooting skills, particularly his three-point shooting. For example, during the 2013-2014 season with the Chicago Bulls, he averaged 14.9 points per game and shot an impressive 41.1% from the three-point line.

A journeyman in the league, Augustin has played for multiple teams (11 in total), consistently contributing off the bench. He’s had several seasons where he averaged double-digit points and solid assists numbers, like in the 2010-2011 season where he averaged 14.4 points and 6.1 assists per game with the Bobcats.
