Calvin Jerome Murphy is a retired basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association during the years 1970 to 1983. Currently, he is part of the Houston Rockets’ AT&T Sportsnet TV broadcast team.

At 5’9”, he remains the shortest player in NBA history to grace the Basketball Hall of Fame as well as to play an NBA All-Star Game.

He is fondly remembered for his time with the Houston Rockets. This is evident from the fact that his jersey number 23 was retired by the Houston Rockets after his last game.
