Default spud webb could dunk when he was 4'11

I call bull

I know wikipedia is supposed to have a lot of BS, but this is ridiculous. Can anyone actually try to confirm that this is true? 4'11? cotdamn

I like how whoever wrote that part pretends to cite it to give it credibility yet there's no [3] or [2] footnote at the bottom

Not that hard to believe. That's close enough to being 5ft.

YEs but not making up for the loss of like 6-7 inches, plus his arms probably grew in length in time too. F he could dunk when he was 4'11 he would have been doing much more crazy stuff then a 360.

I always thought Spud had shortish arms for a basketball player, which made his dunking that much more incredible.

That's ridiculous if he could dunk at 4-11. All my dunks are still rimming out at 5-10. 8 inches is a lot to grow though. Didn't Dennis Rodman grow a bunch over one summer? Anybody know how much?
