Boykins A Bobcat

Staring at an Eastern Conference where there’s no such thing as eight teams with winning records, the Bobcats made a little move in pursuit of the playoffs. Thursday they signed 5-foot-5-inch point guard Earl Boykins — the second-shortest player in NBA history — for the rest of the season. Boykins is diminutive (5-foot-3 Bobcats radio analyst Muggsy Bogues was the only NBA player shorter), but he can light up the scoreboard with his quickness and shooting ability.
