I'm sure I got this wrong (no matches). I should have just gone with Spud or Mugsy, active player be damned. I just threw out the shortest recent prominent college player I could think of. I think he's 6-1 or something like that.

One issue with this question is how to define their height. There are players listed as taller than 6' who aren't.

Chris Paul, 6' (0)
Kal Varnsen

Monta Ellis, 6'3" (0)

Why the heck was I thinking Ellis was really short? A free lane violation to anyone who has any idea who I was thinking of.

I thought this question would be really obvious because of the current playoffs.

Ainge hasn't played a game for the Celtics in 25 years. Garnett could be seen delivering illegal moving screens and the like as recently as a week or two ago.
Sometimes you just have to go with what's current.

Besides, to me all that stuff that went down in the 80's with Ainge or McHale or whoever was just indicative of the way the game was played back then.

Yeah but McHale played down low. Goes with the territory. Ainge went out of his way to be a dirty asshole. And nobody who had one of the best guest appearances on Cheers can be dirty.

I'm pretty sure Chris Paul is the correct answer to this question. Unfortunately he's generously billed as 6' thus making him a bad answer.

Ainge was one of those players where fans of every other team hated his guts. But then, when he went to your team *cough* Portland, Phoenix *cough* they started liking him.

Yep, I really meant "listed" height and should have specified so, but at least it's Sheelp.

And just got caught up. Made it through the Laker gauntlet pretty well.

Now I just hope there is one more unanimous answer.

These pictures are all so tall, I think they each have to get their own post:

I hope the fact that you used a picture of Muresan doesn't mean that no one chose him!

You've noticed that that is often my pattern, true, but not always!

others: Ralph Sampson, Manute Bol, and... a few others according to Wiki. Ones whose names I knew were Smits, Nevitt, and Yao.

I knew I should have gone for Bol. Eaton was too sneaky obscure.
