Dunker of the Day: 5’5 Phife head at the rim alley-oop in a game
“Yo, microphone check one two what is this The five foot assassin with the ruffneck business” – Phife Dawg, Buggin’ Out
That line delivered by A Tribe Called Quest’s 5’3″ Phife Dawg is probably the best “Yo” in hip hop history. The rap legend and known Knicks fan loves talking about sports and I’m sure would love to know there’s a “dunker” just two inches taller than him, throwing down head at the rim dunks…named Phife.
These “five-foot assassins” are just appearing everywhere since 5’5 dunker Porter Maberry made LeBron jump out of his chair.
