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.
UNC-Vince Carter
Duke-Corey Maggette

Vince takes it and it really

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

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

Lloyd Church tells the story.

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."

David Noel

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

I know he didnt make much impact on basketball, but Julius Peppers is a hell of an athlete for a 6'7 280lbs Forward.

I would disagree about

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.

Jason Williams

Jwill was also an excellent athlete. He was extremely quick and would throw down some sick dunks on occasion.
