UNC vs Duke (Athleticism)
Between the 2 rivals who has had the most athletic players on their teams, & who was the most athletic player on each team?
I say UNC has had the most athleticism to come through between the 2.
Vince takes it and it really isn't that close. Grant Hill had some rise back in his Piston days.
I doubt either school really cares about who produced the single most athletic player. It means about as much as between the two rivals, who has had the least athletic player who's last name also starts with the letter Z.
UNC- Serge Zwikker
Duke- Brian Zoubek
i bet you all didn't know that vince wasnt the most athletic player on that team...i cant remember the guys name but he didn't play much and he was from puerto rico..he had a 46 or 47 inch vertical. he used to play in the nc pro am when i was playing in it and vince was playing it it. he used to put his chin at the front of the rim. i wanna say his name was orlando something
Can you find any clips on him anyone?????
Lloyd Church tells the story. He heard it from some UNC assistants. During his campus visit, Melendez played some pickup games with several Tar Heels, including Antawn Jamison and Vince Carter. They heard "El Gato" could jump a little bit, so Carter issued a challenge. "Orlando goes first, and throws down some monster dunk, I don't even know what he did," Church says. "And Vince just walked off the floor and said, 'You win." Melendez's memory of the event is a little more specific. "Oh yeah, I think I went through the legs and behind the back," he says. And Vince? "We went at each other a lot," Melendez says, smiling. "I don't think either of us ever won."
JoeWolf1 dont hate on Zoubek man, he has major ups
I remember his sophmore year he, was in the Duke dunk contest and he caught an alley from greg paulus OVER 2 phone books (NORTH and SOUTH CAROLINA!!!!) it was crazy
other athletic guys for each school
I'd say on athleticism alone he is probably the best athlete I've ever seen on North Carolina.
Same thing for Dahntay Jones probably
I know he didnt make much impact on basketball, but Julius Peppers is a hell of an athlete for a 6'7 280lbs Forward.
helll yeah(at julius peppers) he was dunking on peoples heads hard in the nc pro am when i was playing in it
people are forgetting about ricky price as well for duke
raymond felton didnt do awhole lot of dunking while at unc but he had major bounce
Demarcus Nelson went to my school on CA Sheldon high. He was raw!
Who will have a more athlethic this year between Duke and North Carolina Id say Duke since both Plumlee Brothers got bounce same with Nolan and Kyrie
I would disagree about Okulaja, I don't recall him being very athletic.
I would definitely add in Ty Lawson (maybe the fastest player to every play in the ACC) and Marvin Williams for UNC, as well as Ricky Price for Duke.
Jwill was also an excellent athlete. He was extremely quick and would throw down some sick dunks on occasion.
