Look on any basketball courts in any city and you won’t find many 4’5″ basketball players unless they are around the age of 10 or 11. Meet 29 year old Jahmani Swanson dubbed the Michael Jordan of dwarf basketball. He is the New York Towers star player on a team of small people, and he is pretty damn good! He says this abut people who underestimate his skill:
“People think if they’re bigger than me then they can post me up, but just because I’m small doesn’t mean I’m weak.”
Don’t let his small stature fool you. Jahmani can hold his own against players much taller than him. His unbelievable dedication and work ethic has made him a giant in a tall man’s game. Just look at his athletic build! You can tell that he has put a lot of hard work in the gym. Check him out in action!
