The other "Heavenly Twin", Marty Friedman, is also in the Hall of Fame, and also shorter than Murphy, 5'7".
Must have been a day Wikipedia was hijacked, they use Calvin Murphy as a reference and then list a ton of NBA players at or shorter than him:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_shortest_players_in_National_Basketball_Association_history
It has nothing to do with hijacking. There are plenty of NBA players shorter than Murphy. Murphy is the shortest NBA player in the Hall of Fame. But he is not the shortest player in the Hall of Fame. Google is just confused.
It appears correct. It is under the heading "list of shortest NBA players." Meaning that we are already assumptively within that subset when he is qualified further as the shortest in the Hall of Fame. If the pager were titled, "list of shortest basketball players," that would beanother story.
Yes, Wikipedia is correct. The problem is that Google is interpreting Wikipedia's information incorrectly. It's looking at the list of shortest NBA players and extrapolating. This is wrong. Google is wrong.
And then there's Abe Saperstein. This is from his Wikipedia page: "Saperstein, whose 5 ft 5 in (1.65 m) stature may render him as Basketball Hall of Fame's shortest member, was elected to the Hall in 1971. In 1979, he was inducted into the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. He played baseball, basketball, and ran track while in high school. He played as a guard for the Chicago Reds."
