If there is anything people think about first when it comes to basketball players, it is their height. This guy is no different, but people notice Jahmani Swanson’s height for a different reason. At 4 feet 5 inches, Swanson really does prove that size does not matter on the court!
Known as the “Michael Jordan” of dwarf basketball, Swanson astounds crowds whenever they are around to watch his insane skills! His height is no factor when it comes to his amazing strength, speed, and scoring on the court. Swanson believes that when he is on the court, standing next to a 6-foot opponent, that they are both there for a reason. They both have the skills; so don’t judge him by his size!
The 29-year-old basketballer plays pro-league with a court team in New York. “After you see me play, after you get to know me, then you can judge,” says Swanson about proving the doubters wrong. Swanson says he was inspired to play basketball by Michael Jordan, and now he has his own following of fans.
Think he would change anything to up his game? Swanson says he wouldn’t change his height for anything in the world. He has been playing basketball since he was just a toddler and is now and inspiration to everyone in the game, including his own brother.
