hmm...

PG: That's a really tough call. I'm torn between Westbrook, Wall, and (healthy) Rose.

SG: Zach Lavine already? Haha Westbrook fits here if he starts alongside Jackson, but as for pure SGs I'd go with the Toronto duo of DDR and Ross

SF: LeBron. Duh. A case could be made for George or Durant, but LeBron is arguably the single most freakish athlete to ever play.

PF: The Brow. A case for Greek Freak or Ibaka could be made here too.

C: JaVale McGee. Nerlens is up there already though.

Um...

I know the Brow is athletic and all, but I'd have Blake Griffin over him just from a purely athletic standpoint. Also McGee and Nerlens over Drummond??? Really?

I agree with your other choices (De Rozan and James) but out of the three PGs you named its Westbrook and it's not really close as far as who is the better athlete.

Wiggins

Nobody mentioned Wiggins yet? Wow.

I'm not exactly sure which position that he will play, but only Lebron and Westbrook are in a similar class to him athletically, and Lebron is not far from the beginnings of athletic decline, and Westbrook and his injury history makes me think that he will likely not be far behind despite being younger than Lebron.

Lavine is a superlative athlete as well, but I don't see the same quickness in him that I see in Wiggins.

Great All-Time list, mine

Great All-Time list, mine would be pretty similar, probably just a young Shawn Kemp over Griffin

In this all time team I have to mention young Vince Carter. Just throw he in as a water boy, but he need to be with those GOAT

PG-Russell Westbrook-Even

PG-Russell Westbrook-Even with the knee injuries he still can fly.

SG-Andrew Wiggins- Have you seen the videos? Crazy Crazy Athletic ability.

SF-Lebron James- What can I say, maybe most athletically gifted player ever for size speed power combo

PF-Blake Griffin- He's just about as good as it gets.

C-Dwight Howard - He's still a freak of nature,7ft with like a 35inch vert,still super explosive.

Aaron Gordon

Where does Aaron Gordon rank already?

Going into to this draft I thought he and and Wiggins would step on an NBA court and automatically be two of the top athletes in the league. They are both so so young still and it is kinda scary what two years of physical development at an elite level will do for both of them.

My opinion: PG: Russell

My opinion:

Big men that could have made it: Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond, Dwight Howard, DeAndre Jordan.

This thread made me feel

This thread made me feel compelled to register and get an account so I could reply because I can't believe the few of you that made All-Time lists either leave out or don't start the most athletic player in NBA history....

Vince Carter

If it is an all-time

If it is an all-time list.....Connie Hawkins has to be be mentioned. He was the "high flyer" before high flyers even existed. Elgin Baylor was a super athletic player too.....before the knee injury.

Iguodala

Obviously not going to get put ahead of LeBron in the starting lineup but Andre Iguodala has to be mentioned in this conversation. Got robbed by Nate Rob for a Dunk title one year. First to catch one off the back of the backboad and throw it down.

Didnt Shane Larkin post the second best vert at the combine ever? Haven't even seen an honerable mention of him.

Miles Plumlee was the only 7

Miles Plumlee was the only 7 footer in modern combine history to hit a 40"vert. He's getting no love...
