Spud Webb comes from a classic time in the NBA when he was a part of the Atlanta Hawks’ starting team that included Dominique Wilkins and Doc Rivers. No one could believe that this huge basketball spirit was in this little 5’7″ body. But it was!
The Slam Dunk competition is one of the biggest highlights for the NBA stars. They get a chance to take it back to basics and have playtime like they did in the neighborhood before they started playing professionally with millions on the line. Webb can brag that he beat out Dominique Wilkins and Michael Jordan in the 1986 Slam Dunk competition.
Nowadays Webb is on the business side of basketball and folks think once they get off the court they don’t have “it” anymore, but nothing could be further from the truth…as you are getting ready to witness. Webb had to take the younguns to school one day when they were busy putting their foot in their mouth. Check it out! I’ve also added a video of Webb in his heyday. Enjoy!
