I know I could watch YT videos but that doesn't give you the whole story
From what I recall, Mugsy was good, not great. (or maybe he was as good as a 5'3" guy playing in the NBA could be). Was a very traditional point guard. Didn't shoot much. Just ran the offense, got the ball to the scorers and tried to not turn it over much. Shot only when he had to. He could get to the basket because of his quickness, but usually ended up dishing off. Not flashy at all. Just used his speed, quickness and strength.
He was solid on defense. A good steal guy from what I recall. Did not get bullied in the post too much because of his strength, even thought he was often giving up a foot or more to the people he was guarding.
All things considered, he was a pretty remarkable player. To have a decade long career in the NBA at his height is pretty amazing.
