The shortest and lightest MVP ever was raining buckets on the league. 🔥
Til this day AI remains the shortest and lightest player to ever win the MVP. 6’0 (which in my opinion is bologna) weighing 165 lbs soaking wet. He should not of been able to do what he did basketball wise at that size. The one thing that made it happen was HEART. No one in the NBA had more heart than that guy. It’s the reason us in Philly absolutely adored the man. He laid it out on the line every night on that basketball court. Basketball fans around the world will appreciate that from him for an enternity.
