With March Madness having arrived and all the talk surrounding Zion, I wanted to see what some of your opinions were regarding the trait and topic of athleticism.

We've seen some crazy athletes in basketball.  Whom do you guys view as having the most freakish and bizarre athletic ability?

 

Names that come to my mind in no particular order.

 

- Lebron

- Westbrook

- Zach LaVine

- John Wall

- Aaron Gordon

- Vince Carter

- Giannis

- Jordan

- Shannon Brown? (LOL)

- Blake Griffin

- etc.

 

I must say, Zion ranks up there with the best of them.  His combination of sheer size, power, mobility, and vert is just insane.

What are you guys' top 5 all time NBA Athletes and where would you rank Zion?

Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Johnson, Dominique, Shawn Kemp, Dennis Rodman, Dr. J, Shaq.

 

Number one should be Wilt.

Yall are far too young but Elgin Baylor did the most artistic moves and sunk the basketball while doing it! under-rated imo

Agree. Wilt is easily #1.

 

Not a fan of adding guys that aren't exactly stars, but Gerald Green is one of the most freakish athletes i've seen.
