My good friend wrote this article, let me know what you guys thing.

http://www.muscleprodigy.com/the-10-most-jacked-nba-basketball-players-arcl-844.html

My top 3 (in order) of the most muscular would be 1) Joey Graham, 2) Dwight Howard, 3) Andre Iguodala

What's everyone else think?

Good article but I'm not so sure about Rondo.

I love how LeBron's bodyweight has such a wide range depending upon what article you read. I've seen him at everything from 240 to 280, I don't think he's anywhere close to the upper extreme. Artest is a lot more jacked & more thick than LeBron at pretty much the same height and even he doesn't weigh that much. I don't even consider LeBron to be "jacked" either, he just has a wide shoulder structure that makes him look bigger than he really is.

Blake Griffin cracks the top 10 IMO

Dude is a athletic freak

George Hill, Rondo, and maybe Westbrook are all lying about their weights.

Good list though. Thought I would see Brandon Bass, but he is not as ripped as those selections.

Ben Wallace can bench 460, I don't know about Artest though. They also said during the playoffs last year that Howard can do 225 for 26 reps.

that was from the combine before he got drafted. Dwight Howard's was 7 reps. I am pretty positive they can do a lot more now, especially howard

Not sure about Rondo and George Hill being in there... it says MOST MUSCULAR, not least bodyfat.

Also, Iquadala and Artest's bench listed at 460? Howard listed at 185x6? There's a video of Dwight on youtube of him benching 365 for a few.

06-02-2010, 01:23 PM
Also, Kobe is pretty strong for his size. He's listed at 205, but he can post up and back down almost every SG/SF in the league. I've even seen him bump Lebron back for a few feet while posting him up. And he's been able to keep his ground against Carmello who's 30+ lbs heavier.

i remember back around when the rape charges came out, Kobe basically lived in the gym over the summer to get away from the distractions. he came back the season after having bulked up to around 230 (for reference, he plays at 205 right now).

hes a lot slimmer now for more quickness/endurance, but during that time he was probably the strongest guard in the league.

it was 2 plates a side.

-Edit I stand corrected, just looked it up, and the newer one does have him with around that much. I was remembering the older commercial for when he made the all star team.

lmao. 3% bodyfat is competition shape for a pro bodybuilder. no athlete can compete at 3% bodyfat and no athlete would want to be 3% bodyfat. one of my friends is an assistant strength coach and UNC and doesn't want any of his athletes below 8-10%.

i don't know anything about their stats...but as being a lifelong fan of the nba for about 14 years..I would say that the 2 most impressive figures i have seen play in the league would be karl malone and david robinson...both of those guys had to have 20 inch arms and to play 40+ minutes in an 82 game nba season as a pro bball player...you gotta be in damn good shape.
http://site.bigbasketball.net/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/Karl_Malone_Lifting_Weights.265192321_std.jpg

If were talking about sheer strength, then i doubt anyone can mess with Shaq in his prime. Hell i bet you shaq is one of the strongest nba players even now...at 39 years old.

I would go with stockton or malone all time, barkley was also very strong and was a one of the most feared bball players, he was very intimidating.

currently most freakish players in the league includes dwight howard, lebron, nate robinson.

I bet that dwight and probably lebron too are the only 2 guys in the league that can dunk on a 12 foot hoop
