Who is the shortest NBA player to dunk in a game?

Is it Spud Webb? I'm trying to think who has been shorter than him. The only guys I can think of are Muggsy Bogues, Earl Boykins and Keith "Mr." Jennings. Did any of these Napoleons ever throw down in a game?

Bogues dunked in practice, but never in a game. I wouldn't be surprised to hear about Boykins dunking, though.

Boykins cant dunk hes not athletic enough. Im sure Spudd dunked on a fast break at least once in his career.

He did it more than once, he even had one dunk where he literally dunked over the entire showtime Lakers.

Boykins is very athletic. Didnt you catch Chris Paul behind the scenes talking about Earl Boykins to the other Rookie players that made the rookie/sophomore game ? Chris Paul was saying nobody can post up Earl Boykins. If you missed it check it out, I believe I saw it on NBA TV.

I saw that! Paul and Deron Williams were playing around and Williams said he was going to post up Earl Boykins. Paul said "don't do it, he's strong!".
