Best Answer

No one is ever too short to play Basketball. Some of the shortest players were Muggsy Bogues who was 5'3" and played in the NBA for 14 seasons. Spudd Webb was 5'7" and played for 12 seasons. He also won the Slam Dunk title over his 6'8" teammate, Dominique Wilkins. Currently Nate Robinson is the shortest player in the NBA at 5'9". He has won three Slam Dunk titles including an astounding victory over the 6'11" center Dwight Howard. So to answer your question, no your never too short to play basketball, you may have to work harder, but your never too short.
