One thing is though the shorter your arms are it does help with bench and squat because you do have a shorter distance to carry the weight through.

Boykins is truly impressive though, fast as lightning, skits around the court like a water bug and yes he is strong as an ox for his size.

I have often wondered how well some of the elite point guards or cornerbacks or boxers would do if they dedicated themselves tennis as they have a premium combination of speed, flexibility, smoothness in hip movements for direction change, hand-eye coordination and size-strength ratios, not to mention point guards especially have very good court awareness and sports strategy..

We'll probably never know but interesting food for thought.
