Throughout its history, the NBA has seen its fair share of David versus Goliath battles.
Usually, the disparity between players and teams is one of talent or desire.
Sometimes, however, the disparity is simply one of height. And in such mismatches, it is normally the undersized player who comes up short (pardon the pun).
Those players hovering around 6'0'' can normally expect any shot in the paint to quickly see itself hurtling into the stands. Likewise, taller players being guarded by a smaller player can normally expect a nice uncontested dunk in return for their efforts.
There are times, though, perhaps only once or twice a season, when the pint-sized player emerges victorious from his battle with a taller player.
When David defeats Goliath.
This slideshow is a celebration of those times.
