9. Ty Lawson
Sometimes being shorter can be an advantage because you have a lower center of gravity. This means that you’re naturally more balanced and can change directions at speed. Former NCAA champion Lawson was excellent at this during his time with the Denver Nuggets.
Lawson spent six seasons in Colorado and played for four other NBA teams. Meanwhile, he also traveled around the world, starring in Europe and China. It’s been a nomadic few years but it doesn’t take anything away from the longevity of his career.
