Earl Boykins

#2 Earl Boykins

EarlAntoine Boykins holds the record of not only being the second shortest basketball player but also weighing the lightest at 135 pounds.

He was never drafted in his career and subsequently spent his years playing for ten different NBA sides!

At 5’5”, Boykins became the shortest player ever to score over 30 points in his game against the Pistons.

Even with his average of just 20 minutes a game, he managed to get 3.2 assists in each one. Not a bad stat for someone as short as Boykin’s!
