2010-11 NBA Season | Can Earl Boykins Dunk?Category: Basketball
In his 15th NBA season, Earl Boykins of the Milwaukee Bucks has shown that he still has game by torching the Dallas Mavericks for 26 points on his team’s 99-87 victory last January 1, 2010.
He’s averaging more than 20 points in the past four games, teaming with Keyon Dooling to fill in for the injured Brandon Jennings.
However, it’s not his age that has been boggling fans but his height. Listed at 5 feet, 5 inches in height, he is the second shortest player in NBA history behind Muggsy Bogues, who was 5 feet, 3 inches tall.
The next obvious question for the casual fans is: can Earl Boykins dunk?
After all, the history of the NBA has been filled with countless exploits of short men who can dunk. Even guys like Spud Webb and Nate Robinson became NBA Slam Dunk champions.
Well, I have scoured the Internet but have not seen proof that Earl Boykins can dunk. But he is just 2 inches shorter than Spud Webb so it might be possible.
