ST. FRANCIS, Wis. There's no doubt Milwaukee Bucks guards Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis comprise one of the best or at least quickest backcourts in the NBA.
But, in a pattern true to most other positions on Milwaukee's roster, that talented backcourt is also one of the smallest in the NBA, boasting a 6-2 average height and a an average weight of 177.
