How tall is Spud Webb

Spud Webb's Height

5ft 5 ½ (166.4 cm)

Anthony Jerome Webb is a retired American basketball star, who played for teams like Atlanta Hawks and Sacramento Kings.
Playing in the NBA was always my dream, a pretty ambitious dream for a guy my size. Standing in the shower I'm 5'6" tall, but when I'm on the basketball court I'm much taller — 5'7" to be exact, thanks to my Pony shoes and a thick pair of socks.

He looks shorter than Robinson. Robinson is around 5’7”

Quite impressive vertical indeed I wonder how much it was,just mentioning that Jordan's was 43"(and not 48 like some sites mentioned),more exactly from 8'10" to 12'5".Most impressive ones are probably T-Dub and Kadour Ziani.I would like to know how tall the latter is,he was described as 5'10 could be even shorter than that

If he’s only 5-5 and half then there’s no way Nate Robinson is 5-7 and 3/4 because when they stood next each other in the slam dunk contest spud actually looks slightly taller in dress shoes as oppose to Nate in sneakers .....rob would you kindly change the height for Nate Robinson ??

He’s prob not 5’5.5 any longer. At his age it wouldn’t surprise me

Solid 5'6" guy at one point. I think he's lost half an inch.
Canson said on 13/Mar/19
Bogues likely is only 5’2 range. Spud is at most 3” taller not at least
Canson said on 13/Mar/19
@Height: it’s more than likely that his 5’6” claim is just him rounding up from 5’5.5. It also mentioned before that he likes to claim 5’7” somewhere.
Canson said on 13/Mar/19
@Height: I actually just googled his 5’5.5 measurement as I have seen it before. That’s what it returned but Rob found the real source which I also saw.

shouldn't bogues be downgraded to 5'2? he's at least 3 inches shorter than webb.

What is the original source from that "Short Sexy Guys" facebook group post?
Editor Rob
Actually I looked at that article again and it's from 1985 LA Times, it seems like an imagnine what an article is like in 2005: Here

It's made up then?

What do you think his vertical was.

Guy is not from this Earth

@Rob: honestly, Just going off 5’5.5, he could be as low as 5’5” flat if they measured him as early as the combine measures today. However, I have a feeling that that is more of a measurement at least a few hours out and that his low would be worst case 5’5.25 maybe 5’5.25-.5 range really. I don’t think they began those eye opening measurements back when he played but not sure.
Editor Rob
They might not have measured him as early as a combine though.
Canson said on 11/Mar/19
@Rob: yea at his peak 5’5 and change I’d say. No guarantee that’s a low. I know Doc Rivers called him 5’4” but I think he exaggerated. 5’5.5 I think is fair. Maybe he dips to 5’5.25 but prob not much less peak
Editor Rob
If he was measured as mentioned, then maybe at worst he could fall to 5ft 5.25.
Canson said on 10/Mar/19
@Rob: it says in the link I sent that the club measured him 5’5 1/2
Editor Rob
That would add up with him walking into the shower at 5ft 6! I will add the description at the top about 5ft 5.5.
Canson said on 10/Mar/19
@Rob: he’s actually admitted to being 5’5 1/2 before and I had a basketball card with him at that height
viper said on 9/Mar/19
This is a surprise. Thought he was 5-7.

About 5'6" and 180 lbs today, I'd wager.
