Dwarf Basketball Team Has High Hopes
They're little but the Towers kick A
Monday, February 1, 2010 17:33 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) A dwarf basketball team from New York has high hopes for their first game.
The New York Towers consist of 12 little people ballers.
Their tallest player is just 4-foot-8, but that doesnt stop the tiny team from aiming high.
Manager Clinton Brown whos 3-foot-3 says his crew can play basketball just as well as any average-sized team.
Because theyre small, they can run quickly and dont have to dribble that high, giving them excellent control over the ball.
Brown says they can run circles around a regulation court and one of their players can even dunk on a 7-foot rim.
The NY Towers will prove their might on March 6, when they play their first official game against an average-sized team from Albany.
The only rules to make it a fair game are that every rebound must touch the ground before playing it and each pass must be a bounce pass.
