The Shortest Player in the NBA
 
Spud Webb was born in Texas, the USA, in 1963. He was very small—much smaller than the other kids at school. However, he had a big dream—he wanted to play in the NBA.
 
While attending junior high, Spud tried out for the school team, but he was refused at first because he was too small. He did not lose heart. When he finally got the chance, he scored 20 points in his first game. From then on, he was the star of the team. 
 
In senior high, Spud often had to sit in the stands because of his height.
