1. Allen Iverson
Yes, official lists have Iverson down as six-foot tall. But let’s be real, that’s simply isn’t true. Measurements taken when Iverson wasn’t wearing shoes prove that he’s definitely shorter than this. However, that should take nothing away from his capabilities as a player. If anything it makes his achievements even more impressive.
A star in Philadelphia, Iverson spent 11 seasons in the “City of Brotherly Love” with the 76ers. He also became an 11-time All-Star during his time in the NBA. Furthermore, he was the 2001 league MVP and a two-time All-Star game MVP. The Answer is the definition of a star short player.
