Spud became an NBA phenomenon in the mid '80s after winning the 1986 Slam Dunk Contest. He was known more for his height and dunking ability during the peak of his popularity with the Atlanta Hawks. The best statistical years of his career came with the Sacramento Kings in the early 1990s. He briefly returned to the Hawks in 1995 and at the 1995-96 trade deadline, he was shipped to the Wolves in a deal for Christian Laettner.
