The Top Shortest Players to dunk in the NBA. I am aware that there are players missing on this list.1 - Spud Webb 5 ft 7 in (170cm)2 - Nate Robinson 5 ft 9 ...
Spud Webb (5 ft. 7 in.) Webb was the originator of the little man with superhuman hops. He burst on the scene in high school as there were rumors he could dunk a basketball when he was merely 5’3”. He wasn’t highly touted but that changed after he led Midland College to the junior college national title in 1982.
NBA slam dunk champion Nate Robinson is one of the most impressive “short” dunkers to ever play in the NBA. In fact, Nate Robinson is listed at only 5’9". Like Iverson, Nate Robinson also runs at an impressive 4% body fat which subsequently optimizes his power to weight ratio.
Here’s the list of the shortest NBA dunkers who are probably as tall or shorter than you. 1. Spudd Webb. At 5 foot 7, Webb is the shortest NBA dunker who won an NBA small dunk contest. In 1986, he beat his teammate Dominique Wilkins (legendary dunker himself) with two perfect 50s in the final round.
Given the fact that Muggsy Bogues didn’t ever dunk in-game, the title of “shortest NBA player to dunk” belongs to Spud Webb. Measuring just 5-foot-7, Spud Webb not only dunked in games, but even won the 1986 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
