The 5-7 Anthony Jerome “Spud” Webb turns 50 today, and while he only averaged 9.9 points and 5.3 assists over his 12-year career with Atlanta, Sacramento and two brief sojourns to Minnesota and Orlando, he’ll always be remembered as, not just one of the NBA’s best dunkers, but also one of the league’s finest little men. But we loved to see him sky, so we’re reliving his amazing performance during the 1986 Slam Dunk Contest.
