Earl "The Goat" Manigault
The streetball legend was just 6'2", but he would grab dollars and quarters off of the top of the backboard. He once reverse dunked 36 times in a row to win a $60 bet. It is rumored that he had a 52-inch vertical leap. He was also a deadly long range shooter.
When Kareem Abdul-Jabbar got his number retired at the Forum, he was asked who the greatest player he ever played against was. His reply? Earl "The Goat" Manigault.
