Muggsy Bogues’s grandson has cool nickname, amazing skills

Fatman is a member of the high school class of 2023, so he has a long way to go before the national spotlight of college and possibly the NBA, but it sure looks like he is continuing the family tradition of basketball excellence.

If he grows a few inches taller than his famous grandfather he could really be dangerous in the coming years.
