Meet the Shortest Member of the Harlem Globetrotters
“I’m 4-foot-5. But I carry myself like I’m 6-foot-5.” Jahmani Swanson doesn’t just talk a good game. This basketball player, who goes by the nickname Hot Shot, plays to win. Born in the Bronx and raised in Harlem, Swanson is the shortest Harlem Globetrotter in the team’s history. People typically see height as the ultimate advantage in basketball. But players who underestimate Swanson because he is a little person soon regret it.
