It's tough to say which player did more for short people in basketball, Muggsy Bogues or Spud Webb. The former was the shortest professional athlete in the modern era in a sport that encourages height, but the latter, Anthony "Spud" Webb, may have done more when he won the 1986 NBA Slam Dunk contest. Standing just 5-foot-7, Webb flew through the air like a hummingbird to win the title.
Before his moment in the limelight, Webb had been a solid player at N.C. State. The Texas native went on to play nine seasons in the NBA, and according to videos on YouTube, was still dunking a basketball well into his 40s.
