Earl Boykins



Standing just 5-foot-5 and weighing about 135 pounds, Earl Boykins carved out a 13-year NBA career. Boykins first came on the national scene as a standout guard at Eastern Michigan, leading his team to an NCAA tournament first round upset of Duke in 1996 and earning Honorable Mention All-American honors as a senior.

Boykins wasn't picked in the NBA Draft, but he caught on and eventually averaged double figure scoring for three straight seasons with the Denver Nuggets. He retired in 2012.
