That's a big list of skilled players there, I'd take Skill over Athleticism any day.

Steve Nash? Really? He's built perfectly for what he does. He's just getting too old now.

I would agree with Kev Love, look at his ass from UCLA till now, he's been putting in some work though.

Larry Bird was one of the least gifted athletically too. You don't have to be athletic to shoot.

Too busy throwing straight bombs and accurate passes in the nfl.

Too busy dominating the tight end position

Too busy blocking for our home boy

Too busy catching balls in the slot

Too busy hitting bangers 50+ with our legs

Kevin Love doesn't have limited athletic ability. He has a big wingspan, a max vert of 35 inches, and he's coordinated. His game is about always being in the proper position, so he doesn't have to rely on athleticism.

Also in what world is JJ Barea unathletic? The only reason he's in the NBA is because he has crazy agility.

Tim Duncan should be on this list, I don't think he's actually jumped in the air for about 5 years now.

look at larry's speed and how high he phucking jumped. pretty big misconception he wasn't athletic. was he as athletic as magic??? probably not. but the dude had hops and some major speed

I guess I never noticed his speed and ups. I always chalked it up to excellent awareness, hands, and anticipation.

I always find these kinds of polls rather funny though. I mean, who cares what the guy looks like, does he get the job done?

Is Zach Randolph really more athletic than Kevin Love?
