    a few guys in the NBA

    Muggsy Bogues, 5'3"
    Earl Boykins, 5'5" and he is damn good
    plus Spud Webb,who is 5'7" , he was the Slam Dunk champ in 1986

    Muggsy Bogues and Earl Boykins can't dunk
    but they are quick,especially Boykins

    Spud Webb,who is 5'7",was a Slam Dunk champion
    most people who stands at 5'7" can't dunk,some can't even touch the rim
    he defeated all those other guys who are 6 foot something to get the champion
    so go figure...

    the fact is that,the shorter you are,the more skills are required for you to make into the NBA.

    I beg to differ. I have seen Bogues and Boykins dunk in the NBA, Hell, I've seen women dunk in college and the WNBA! So it's not impossible!

    Bogues and Boykins dunk???
    you are kidding...right?.....

    yup, Lisa Leslie dunked in WNBA,she is the first to dunk in a WNBA game
    Candice Parker,Michelle Snow,Charlotte Smith dunked in college
    actually only a few women dunked in WNBA and college
    but they are above 6 foot 3 so they are supposed to be able to dunk in practice,but in actual games thats another thing.

    the difference of height

    Earl Boykins 5'5
    Yao Ming 7'4

    That photo is way distorted.

    Yuta Tabuse, a player from Japan who did not make it in the NBA, is about 5'7". If he were taller (about 6' ) he might've had a better shot.

    He's playing now for the Long Beach Jam.

    It's the truth! I've seen both do it. And who's to say that pic is distorted? Given the size differential, I'd say that looks about right.

    yes,the shorter a player is,the more skills required for him to make into the NBA,
    there are not many 7 footers,so guys who are above 7' have higher chance

    there are many people who are around 5'6 to 6' on the streets
    you have to be better than all those people,and be good enough to beat guys who are above 6'
    for those who are under 6' ,or even around 5'5" and have a starting spot in the NBA
    they are really really good ballers


    Yuta Tabuse tried out for the Mavericks,assistant coach Donnie Nelson quite liked him but didn't select him,then he tried out for the Nuggets but was cut too,I guess that because they already had Earl Boykins

    But we still have Ichiro! He's only about 5'9" and 170 lbs. but a great athlete role model for Oriental kids. I wish there were players like him when I was growing up. Bruce Lee appeared on the scene when I was 11 but he was in the movies and not as a real competitive fighter. He was 5'7" and 150 lbs.

    That's why I like Kazushi Sakuraba so much. He looks like a friendly, nice, skinny Japanese guy but has fought and beaten four Gracie Brazilian Jujutsu fighters in real competition.

    Hey Onigiri, what do you have inside you?

    Umeboshi? Sake? Okaka?

    Good choice. Are you wearing seaweed today?

    When I was a kid, I remember chewing on Umeboshi-flavored gum in Japan

    One of my Chi Kung students now lives in Medford, OR.

    I've been to Ashland--a nice town--and Eugene.

    I like Oregon a lot.

    HAH! I decided to be daring and went without seaweed today.

    Umeboshi flavored gum? That sounds very interesting.

    I live in Medford, Oregon myself. Ashland is a very beautiful place - I was there just a couple of days ago. It's great during the summer.
    Oregon's really a nice place to live, I just can't find a lot of the things here that I might in bigger cities. (which there are few of here)
    And Portland's just too far away to visit often.
    I long to visit Powels (or whatever the bookstore's called). I've never had the chance when I was actually in the area.
