Who is the Slowest NBA player?

Who is the slowest NBA Player?

Hey yall, I've been debating with myself for 20 seconds now as to who is the league's slowest player. I know that there are differences between quickness (lateral agility, ability to change direction), speed (maximum attainable velocity) and explosiveness (acceleration).

Quickness: Hamed Haddadi

Speed: Juwan Howard

Explosiveness: Eddy Curry

And then in conclusion who you think is the slowest and why.

overall slowest: Joel Przybilla ranks as the overall slowest though I think

I'd say Eddy Curry...I would definitely put Robert "Tractor" Traylor when he was playing back in the day on the top of that list RIP

For a superstar, Dirk is

For a superstar, Dirk is pretty friggin slow and unexplosive. Of course, his game is based on shooting and skill and not off speed and quickness, but I have never seen Dirk fill the lane on a Mavs fast break for a slam.

Dirk was very quick off the dribble though never had much lift when he was young but at 35? i think he is not very athletic right now. Even kg could not stay in front of Dirk off the dribble 8-10 years ago

Kyrylo Fesenko and Aaron Gray

Kyrylo Fesenko and Aaron Gray have got to be tied for overall slowest. That foot-race would be pathetic.

you mean Ilgauzkus?

You should have seen him play when he was young. That guy got some Guard skill for his size. Had some fun watching those Cavaliers team back then even they lose a lot of games. Plus I heard that he plays guard before he grew that big.

Scal?

Brian Scalabrine has to run at 1/10th speed because if he ran normally, he'd get an easy 2 points off a fast break before the other team crossed half court.

If Brian Butch is currently called up from the D-League, it's him.

For someone who plays

For someone who plays up-tempo in Phoenix, Jared Dudley could pick up the pace a bit.

Luke Walton once said himself

Luke Walton once said himself that he is so slow that on a fastbreak he would simply back a man down instead of trying to outspeed someone to the rim.

Last yr, it was probably

Last yr, it was probably Andray Blatche. Dude was so overweight. It looked like he was wearing combat boots whenever he ran the break.
