In order to achieve his lifelong dream of playing in the NBA, Spud Webb had to overcome countless adversities. Many said he would never get a chance to play world-class basketball, but the 5-foot 7-inch Webb didn't worry about what others said about his height. He had already overcome every obstacle that he had faced from middle school to college.
Spud's determination, ability and heart finally led him to finally achieve the seemingly impossible dream of playing in the NBA and now a popular basketball speaker. And what a 12 year career it was! He was the floor leading spark plug of the high-flying Atlanta Hawks and Sacramento Kings averaging 10 points and over 5 assists per game. He frequently got the crowd off its feet with his dazzling ball handling skills and spectacular dunks.
Spud's greatest achievement may be his stunning victory at the 1986 NBA Slam Dunk Championship where he defeated many high-flying artists that were more than a foot taller than him, including Atlanta Hawks teammate Dominique Wilkins. It was one of the most electrifying moments in NBA history and inspired people all around the world. Now that his NBA career is over, Spud is one of the great inspirational sports speakers and still continues to entertain crowds.
