Harlem Globetrotter’s Smallest Player, Mani Love, Credits Mom for His Success

At just 4-foot-5, Harlem Globetrotter Jahmani “Hot Shot” Swanson, a.k.a. Mani Love, has one of the basketball team’s most unique distinctions: He’s the shortest player in the organization’s 92-year history. Mani has loved the sport since he was a baby. But adoring a game known for its towering players hasn’t been easy. Luckily, he had the support of his No. 1 fan, his mom, Sabrina, who dedicated her free time to shuttling Mani around so he could pursue his dream.
