  • How is that even possible 5’7 with that bounce

  • Mike Jordan was looking soo cute in that blue sweater

  • Mitchell Lynn Durden

  • Mitch

  • Video starts 0:54

  • Spud's full name is Spuder Webb

  • Found out about him after playing old NBA street games and thought, there's no way he can do this in real life. I was honestly impressed and became a fan of his ever since. Spud is amazing!

  • Wicked! From Blewfoot....

  • 4'11 to 5'4 how???

  • Jeremy Lin felt it before but luckly Spud webb a black.

  • Played in a 4v4 pickup game against him about twenty years ago. He tried to buy a girls Sneakers ; no lie I also got a piece of one of his jump shots. The highlight of my basketball career. Lol

  • I hated spudd's barber!!!! He was pure unadulterated trash!!!

  • Spud is a Rockstar and an NBA legend.....the man gets the job done....nuff said!

  • Theres ads every 2 min? This is BS

  • YES! WORLDISYOURS.MOBI

  • I remember going to a Laker games and watching Spud Webb I wish you would have played with the Lakers unbelievable what he could do with his size and I remember Nate Archibald Calvin Murphy they were small players and they were awful good to

  • loved him!!!

  • That was nice. Spud was a baaaad boy. A real wonder.

  • with that height, oh wow..

  • Calvin Murphy opened the acceptance door for the short player, not Spud Webb.

  • Spud was actually closer to 5’4... NBA shouldn’t have increased his height

  • Its like watching a sixth grader dunk a ball

  • This goes to show you that even though you might not have the height if you have the talent and can play you'll make it. It was a pleasure to see him play

  • Love Spud Webb... tons of heart and skills!

  • What does a 5'7 NBA player say to his teammates? Get your dick out of my face...

  • Spud vs mugsey

  • imagine if he were 6f5inch. with that vertical. He would have the record of the highest vertical ever!

  • Hey I just realised that I mite be in the NBA all my relatives are like 5'9

  • Spud ushered a host of other short players into the Kings

  • He was 5'7" and played in... no...STARTED on a NBA team. That means he was DAMN GOOD. On my skin.

  • B la b la

  • *Fuck.....now I have to come up with a different excuse to why I still can't dunk at 5'10*

  • Loved Spud Webb and his energy. THE MUSIC IN THE BEGINNING WAS DOPE. Who is it?

  • to play the NBA at 5'7" Spud was an all-star any time any day.

  • Show me a REAL "DWARF" do that........THEN I will be IMPRESSED.

    • Asinine statement.

  • Spud Webb even sounds like the name of a midget

  • Spud is only 5'7" but his jump to dunk looks effortless. Amazing.

  • 5 foot 4 and can dunk wit 2 hands that's all Star shit right there then 5 7 and doing 360 dunks that's crazy. Most people can't touch backboard or grab the net at 6 feet

  • Raise the rim another 18 inches rightnow. Probably 3/4 of the NBA players couldent slam it... Spud da man!

  • less than 1% of high school players make the nba of those starting out. Anyone who makes it is quite the accomplishment.

  • I'll put Spud Webb against queen James any day if lbj was in the game back then he'll be on the bench

  • A true monster

  • He's truly an amazing dude,the type that only comes once in a lifetime...had he played in today's NBA,,,,he could be a fan favorite and a media sensation especially in this age of social media....nevertheless Spud is a legend....

  • Why dont you respond to comments?

  • Fantastic, that's all!

  • The sad part is if he were white they would have never given him the chance, this is why I haven't watched a NBA game since the mid 80's.

  • Short guys RULE#!!! I used to be 5'6" but I'm 62 yrs old! I'll bet I'm about 5'1!! Loved basketball more than any other sport. Must have been envy!! Love u Spud!! Love u Mugsy!!

  • Spud can be considered as the best dunker of all time inspite of height!

  • Do one with Muggsy Bogues props to spud

  • Spud and Mugsy

  • But his hairline wack

  • I saw that slam dunk contest live/Spud was undoubtedly the best/beat out Dominique Wilkins

  • Proba my pretty dang good if he is 5'7 and made it to the NBA

  • Best dunker I ever saw.

  • He needs to learn how to smile 😂

  • I love The Admiral but Spudd killed it with that steal lol

  • Spud was one of the main reasons why I tuned in to watch his NBA games. He could jump like he was on the moon and the others were stuck in earth's gravity.

  • DALLAS TEXAS

  • One of the smallest but one of the biggest in basketball

  • Liked watching Spud, slam dunk CHAMP, so fast. Thanks for showing one of the best.

  • I watched spud throw down 30 against the pacers

  • short NBA players are so overlooked, excuse me for the pun

  • just like Linram Ones, a great player even his small.

  • What a beauty

  • Awesome!!Spud webb is a great player in the history of basketball..

  • He had to be bad ass to be there.

  • Fuck, he's a freak of nature, lol. Unbelievably great!!

  • Spud Webb legs was on steroids..LMFAO..Dude was amazing

  • Do Ben Wallace.

  • Never an All-Star? That's insane. I've watched him play as a kid and he was so much more than a dunking Beast.

    • When I was watching the all stars when young. The coaches would be able to pick the benches players. So they could have gotten him. But now it's different this year

    • +Mike McCarthy I know right😕 The overlook effect.

    • Probably could have gone in. But you had great PG in Detroit and Boston at that time.

  • Did he say Spud averaged 50-teen?

  • rip ears 2:07

  • He was a bum

  • great thanks great guy

  • Regardless of his athletic gifts, if you make the NBA at 5'7" you have to have the heart of a WARRIOR!! Props to my man Spud.🙌

    • Mugsy Bogues

    • +ABHI dunno man.

    • Intro song?

    • +_meow_9153_ lmao! Facts! You know, though... actual warrior. That's funny af, though! 😂😂😂

    • kevin McKevy nowadays warriors don’t have hearts 😂

  • That Bishops Jersey is hot! 🔥🔥🔥

  • HALL OF FAMER!!! 100%!!!! ABSOLUTELY!!!! NO DOUBT!!!! He played in my era, and I do not think he was ever turned loose to just take over a game! But if he had been told like MJ or Magic to just take over the game-- he could have dominated! ( Lighting speed, quickness, great passer, could see the floor well, could shoot the short jumper and the 3 point shot, Had a great runner in the middle, and could finish strong at the rim.)And, back then u could hand check guys-- which made him a pesky terror on defence to other guards, and big men. If they put the ball on the floor, Spud could have easily stolen the ball!! In todays game, he would have dominated becuz he could have used his quickness and gone dtraight to the rim and finished with any kind of dunk w/ out being touched or worried about injury. But back in the day-- If he had gone in the lane, they would have hurt him on purpose becuz of his size-- so he had to stay on the perimeter, or kick the ball back out. And the 3 point shot wasn't encouraged as much back then, and it was more of a half court set. So, he would have taken a lot more 3s, or just blew by people, layed it up, or finished strong!!! Spud would have thrived with LAs Showtime!!!( But as I said, If they had let him use all of his dunking creativity, and the 3 point shot had been utilized more in the 80s an early 90s, this guy wd have been even greater! He had one Achilles heel-- he cdnt palm the ball, but yet he still won the dunk contest! Can u imagine if he had just had MJs or Dr Js BIG HANDS???----CZ that was the only thing that limited his dunking creativity. SPUD THE LEGEND!!! IT'S ALL OVER!!!!

  • Spud NEVER on an NBA All-Star team? Unbelievable!

  • I couldn't understand why he could dunk at 5-7.

    • Nobody could. There are hops and then there is Spud. He had and still has no peer for his jumping ability.

  • Spud is a Legend. How was able to jump so high being only 5 ft 7? Since that's possible why isn't it scientifically possible to increase ones height a couple of feet or so?

  • He was amazing..

  • He's born July like me I'm 5'6 and can't dunk. But I played at a high level hight don't is just a slight advance.

  • Spud Webb and Magic Johnson were the reasons I played basketball. even though I was only 5'7'' I patterned my game after Magic, I loved passing the ball and making sweet plays and made my teammates looked good. Back in my day, 84-87 there weren't hardly any guys I saw that could dunk a basketball but after seeing Spud in the dunk contest, I was amazed and said one day I'm gonna dunk too. I remember in the 7th grade dunking on an 8 ft goal then moved to dunking a tennis ball on a 10 ft goad then to a volleyball and finally one day in the layup line for a school game in the 10th grade I was going for a layup and was up so high that I actually dunked it. One of the best days of my life and will always thank Spud for the inspiration. I'm wearing my old school Pony's right now...lol

  • What a legend they need to do a movie about his life

  • "the dunk contest is know for its tallest players like Dominique Wilkins, Michael Jordan,...." WTF? None of those mentioned are even close to the tallest players.

  • Manute Bol was a beautiful person BUT he cannot compare to li'l Spud Webb as a BASKETBALL PLAYER.

  • Spud Webb was one of the most humble and inspiration basketball players of all time

  • this guy is rare gem, a freak of nature

  • Height is overrated. 2 points are 2 points.

  • I had a Spud poster on my wall growing up. When the world is stacked against you and you throw deuces and do your thing and achieve your goal, idk...for me that epitomizes humanity.

  • That’s incredible he was able to compete and be dominant in his position at that height, such an inspiration🙏

  • Thanks Spud

  • Best Webb moment was his ali-oop 360 dunk in the dunk contest

  • As much as I loved to see spud Webb play as a kid, along with all the greats early years, Spud was so much fun to watch. But he never has the numbers to make him an all star. The only actual accolade he ever had while playing in the NBA was the slam dunk championship trophy. Other than that, he was legend cause he was fun to watch, but no where near a legend to where he deserves to be in the hall of fame.

  • I really like these stories, because while growing up I really enjoyed playing basketball myself, but my dad told me I was too short, boys didn't like to be beat and there would never be a women's basketball league. So I quit.

  • Just goes to show you should never give up on your dreams, your gift will make room for you in this world!

  • Great players come in all shapes and sizes like Sir Charles Barkley who could dunk even though he weighed 638 lbs (citation needed)

    • Joseph Matthews last I heard he weighted one whole ton! And his butt alone weight in at half a ton.

    • knew his keester was big, but didn't know it was that big.

  • One of the MOST underrated NBA player of all time.

  • Being 6.1 and can't dunk, im just thinking to myself. How... man just how?

  • can someone interview, what Spud Webb workout routine?
