Greatest Dunkers Under 6 Feet In NBA History

Who Are The Greatest Dunkers Under 6 Feet?

Dunking is an amazing thing to watch and is always exciting…

The only thing that makes dunking better is when the little guys do it.

So the question is who are the greatest dunkers Under 6 Feet?

When thinking about the NBA, you always think of these really big and tall basketball players…

But in reality, not all basketball players are big or even over 6 feet.

The average height for a male globally is 5 ft 6 in, while the average NBA height is 6 ft 7 in.

That is a big difference more than a foot…

These players on this list may not have the highest vertical in the NBA, but they can still get up.

That is why we are going to break down the greatest dunkers in NBA history that are under 6 feet.

1. Ty Lawson (5 ft 11 in)

Lawson played basketball at UNC before coming to play basketball in the NBA.

Only standing 5’11, one of the last things you would expect Lawson to do is explode to the rim and throw it down…

But that is exactly what he did to an NBA giant named DJ Mbenga

Don’t know DJ Mbenga? Just know that he was 7 ft and 245 pounds.

Look at Ty Lawson posterizing him below…

2. Will Bynum (5 ft 11 inches)

Also known as “Will The Thrill” and “Bymumite”…

Bynum definitely deserves these names with some of the ferocious dunks that he throws down.

As a little guy, you do not expect dunks like this to happen…

But when they do, they look absolutely amazing.

Bynum went undrafted in the 2005 NBA draft and worked hard to get into the league…

“Bymumite” is an example of what can happen with hard work and determination.

3. Allen Iverson (6 foot on a good day)

Iverson is listed as 6 feet, but a lot of NBA teams lie about their player’s height…

I do not believe that Allen Iverson is 6 feet…

So I am going to say a strong 5 foot 11 inches.

But if you believe it or not, there is no doubt that A. I am one of the greatest short dunkers in NBA history.

Allen Iverson had a lot of skills and explosive dunks are definitely one of them.

Don’t believe me, just watch the video below…

4. Nate Robinson (5 ft 9 in)

Robinson won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest three different times.

His most famous dunk during the contest was when he brought out Dwight Howard, who was dressed as Superman.

Nate Robinson jumped over Howard…

Note that Howard is 6 foot 10 inches.

Nate Robinson has a few situations where he surprises us with his inhuman athletic ability…

One of these situations where he blocked a 7-footer Yao Ming…

Watch how high Nate Robinson can get with his best dunks below…

5. Spudd Webb (5 ft 7 in)

The shortest player on this list and a dunking legend…

Webb also won the 1986 NBA Slam Dunk Contest and by doing so became an inspiration to everyone that was under 6 foot…

If it wasn’t for Webb, we might not have the high flyers that we have today that are under 6 feet…

It is very rare to see someone that is 5-foot-7 inches dunking.

Even though Webb was drafted in the 4th round and 87th overall, he is one of the most inspirational players.

Honorable Mention To Greatest Dunkers Under 6 Feet?

One player that should get respect for dunking even though they are short by NBA standards is Rajon Rondo.

When people think about Rondo usually his passing skills and vision on the court are what come to mind.

But what is underrated about his game is his dunking ability.

Rajon Rondo’s height is 6’1, which barely makes him miss this list…

Rondo’s length and vertical ability make it easy for him to raise up and dunk and get amazing put-back dunks in games.
