With your average NBA Point Guard measuring in at a shade over 6’2″, it’s becoming rare to see players under 6′, let alone those who actually dunk during a game. While dunking ability is hardly what shorter players are paid for, there’s something special about a little man landing a dunk. Here is my list of the five best dunkers under six foot.
5. Ty Lawson
Standing at 5’11” tall, the last thing you’d imaging Ty Lawson doing is dunking on a 7′ giant.
4. Chris Paul
One of the NBA’s best Point Guards, CP3 cooly incorporates dunking into his game. He doesn’t produce any ‘monster’ dunks but there is something gracious about his low-profile dunking.
3. Allen Iverson
Slightly under 5’11” barefoot, Iverson was tiny by NBA standards. That did not stop him from dunking left, right and center. His tendency to hang on the rim after both one or two handed jams remains iconic.
2. Nate Robinson
The 5’9″ legend Nate Robinson is famous for winning the NBA Slam Dunk Contest 3 times. His dunking repertoire is out of this world and he regularly dunked during NBA games.
1. Spudd Webb
The 5’7″ 1986 NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion is simply a dunking legend. An inspiration for many, it is said that young Webb could dunk at 5’3″.
