Muggsy Bogues Rumors

As part of the league’s 75th anniversary, NBA TV is releasing a documentary about Bogues as part of its Basketball Stories series of documentaries. Muggsy: Always Believe will premiere Saturday, Nov. 20 on NBA TV at 10 p.m. ET. Check out the teaser that was released online Monday:

Dell’s former teammate took notice of the young Stephen’s dedication to the game. Muggsy Bogues, one of the NBA’s more exciting undersized point guards, is amazed at how the journey of the two-time MVP has been so far. “He was like a little sponge, you know, soaking up information everywhere he went. Dell and I played 11 years together. Nine in Charlotte and two years in Toronto, so Steph is like a little nephew to me,” Muggsy Bogues said of the Warriors sharpshooter, via VLAD TV. “I’m just so grateful to be here to be witness what he’s able to do with his career. I mean it’s remarkable, he’s considered one of the greatest shooters of NBA all-time.”
Of all your opponents, which players stood out as the toughest for you to match-up against? Who were the guys you didn’t look forward to playing? Muggsy Bogues: For me, I loved playing against them all. They were all different. One night, I’d be facing a 6-foot-4 Fat Lever. Then, the next night, I’m up against a 6-foot-8 Penny Hardaway. Next, I’m matching up with 5-foot-7 Spud Webb. Then, suddenly, it’s 6-foot-1 Isiah Thomas. For me, it every night in terms of my opponent. You get accustomed to playing against guys of all different sizes. The thing for me was always understanding each guy’s strengths and weaknesses. It’s a different challenge facing the bigger guys I alluded to, like a Penny Hardaway, versus a quick guard like an Allen Iverson or Tim Hardaway or Spud. Those guys present different types of issues and you have to do different things to counter them. It was nice, getting to play against the best of the best, night in and night out. Everybody brought something different to the table.
