(Feel free to read this as if it was a 'Bud Light - Real Men of Genius' commercial)

When his career is over, there will be a lot of people who will remember Jamaal Tinsley for the amount of time he spent riding the pine with injuries. Some will remember the off-court antics and the obscenities picked up by rim microphones 'round the country. And some may even remember him for the promising all-world potential he displayed his rookie season, while schooling Michael Jordan in their first head-to-head matchup.

But Jamaal's real legacy will be going down as the shortest player ever to record a five-by-five in a single NBA game, and one of only 7 players to do it in the last 22 years.


Yes, 20 years from now as we're discussing career leaders in five-by-fives and Jason Kidd's TRIIIPLE DOUBBBBLEZZZ, we'll all look back and realize what a special player we had on our roster. So today we salute you Jamaal - Mr. 'Shortest player to ever record a five-by-five!' Crack open an icy-cold Bud Light, because you're out of shape anyway.

(seriously has anyone even heard of this stat before?)
