Default Is it possible Spud Webb is taller than Nate Robinson?

Nate Robinson is listed as 5'9 but most people says he LOOKS like hes 5'7. Could it be possible he is even shorter? Cause when i look at this picture it looks like the 5 foot 7 Spud Webb is taller than Nate.

He's 5'6'' and 3/4, a friend of mine (E-Buddy I guess) met him him last year. He at 5'7'' was taller than Nate.

In that picture, neither of them are standing up perfectly straight, so we might not never know....

Nate Robinson is 5'7 3/4" ( Without Shoes)

Spud Webb is 5'5 1/2" ( Without Shoes)

Quote:
Trivia Time: Rookie Spud Webb of the Atlanta Hawks, listed at 5 feet 7 inches, has been measured by the club at 5-5 1/2, which makes him the smallest player in NBA history


On his first attempt of the first round, Webb drove up the right baseline and went in for a reverse slam. Webb's vertical jump was measured at 42 .


Bill Blakely, a former college coach who has known him since he played high school ball in Dallas, said Tuesday, "Spud is actually 5-5 1/2. He just likes being 5-7. I asked him how he got to be 5-7 at North Carolina State and he said they never really measured him.


Spud Webb at 5-5 1/2 and 135 pounds is both the shortest and lightest player in the league.

After he won the dunk contest they were both standing next to each other and Spud Webb clearly looked an inch or two taller than Natey. Whether Webb was wearing those sneakers that add 2 inches to your height or not remains to be seen.

Yeah, Bogues was like 5'1" (without shoes). By the way that article was printed in 1985.
