Spud Webb was a fourth-round pick who initially got his start in the USBL, and eventually ended up on the Atlanta Hawks where his legend was born. Webb surprised everyone when he entered the 1986 Slam Dunk contest as a rookie and won in an upset. He defeated his teammate Dominique Wilkins who had never seen Webb dunk before. Webb became a legend with that performance, but also proved he was more than just a slam dunk performer averaging 13.6 PPG and 6.5 APG from 1990-95.
