A lot of these guys were the average height. Never typed in the nba is 6ft 86.7, there’s very few guys that are not at least 6 ft 768-8649 and he was five foot three 5 ft 3 in tall. It’s. Why I was asking about muggsy, bogues and asking mugsy are our friend and in our guest here? How? How do you demand respect? How do you get the respect that you earn the respect of your peers?

We are going against people that are significantly taller than you who are probably actually mocking you mentally, if not out loud and took any further due.

You know the guy with the best of them the game. Was it just meant for taller people the game with me to play the game of basketball and being able to play it at the highest level? And as this guy that you just mentioned, you know playing along and trying to get those business coach guys. You know that I respect that you have and the way you can tell the team, has the sexiest those guys and making them understand. You know you always everybody has to guess.
