Nathaniel "Tiny" Archibald (born September 2, 1948) is an American retired professional basketball player. He was most notably with the Cincinnati Royals, Kansas City - Omaha Kings, and Boston Celtics. He is the only player in NBA history to lead the league in scoring and assists in the same season. In 1991, he was enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Archibald was a willing passer and an adequate shooter from midrange. However, it was his quickness, speed, and shiftiness that made him difficult to guard in the open court, as he would regularly drive past defenders on his way to the basket.
