I'm sorry I left out Mugsy Bogues so if there is a player That you want to vote for that I left out...please feel free to do a "Write in Ballot" for them..just remember this is based on going coast to coast while dribbling "IN A GAME".

Really close between AI and Pistol Pete. Decided not to be a homer though and went with AI.

Anthony Flores

AI is more fast left to right rather than vertically...

Derrick Rose is. Hes the fastest now. And still the fastest out of anybody you put up there. I dont see how AI is leading right now. Hes real quick crossover wise but not coast to coast.

Because Iverson has more than a crossover...Don't forget they implemented "zone Defense" because of him..I'm not sure how old you are but Iverson used to blow by all 5 players of the opposing team and it became a 1 on 5 and he couldn't be stopped unless they fouled him...The NBA did not want the NBA to look like the Globetrotters because how stupid Iverson had other players looking..so it implemented the "zone Defense"..It used to be someone had to guard someone. He also was a QB with scholarships for football until he got into that fight. How about you compare the two in game speed by looking a video and don't forget Iverson played in the era where defense was king against the like of Jordan, payton and other great guards! more than just Kobe and lebron..he played against them in his prime and still blew past them..including Kobe and lebron!

Didn't Devin Harris set a new record for fastest time coast to coast with a ball, it was like 3.9 seconds or something like that, but not sure about "in a game"

He started the record, no one has attempted to break it. IMO AI for fastest of all-time but Derrick Rose for current

THE MTL
07-26-2009, 02:17 AM
Allen Iverson is the FASTEST with the ball of all-time!!!! Look at the things this guy does with the ball. He gets coast-to-coast, his dribble penetration, & crossover. He is the best!

And Derrick Rose aint up there for me yet. I see alot of Bulls homers right now hating on me, but STOP OVERRATING ur player.

You have guys like Barbosa, Chris Paul, & Tony Parker who are still faster than Rose.

Also Devin Harris kinda set the world record so iono why he doesnt have any love in this discussion

Actually most sportswriters have Rose as the fastest in the NBA.

Id like to see them race Rose. And Devin Harris just did it first and nobody has tried to beat his time. Im not a homer i get on the other Bulls fans when there being way to biased, i honestly think its Rose.

Allen Iverson. Fastest, quickest, and had the best handles back in the day.

Isiah Thomas AND Tiny Archibald should be on this list.

asandhu23
07-26-2009, 05:27 AM
I think this guy named Zelmo Beaty would be the slowest in NBA history... I think Pete Maravich was probably the guy with the best handles followed by iverson. Iverson is the fastest dribbler though

dee279
07-26-2009, 05:37 AM

DEvin Harris Didn't "break" a record he "started" a record. He was the first to do it. So if I would have done it first in 10 seconds that would of been the record instead. so they should have started it wit A.I in his prime ..he probably still can beat that...I saw him get up the court in two dribbles!

is it really that shocking?

ive seen both play and it is a very close call. its hard to discern them both, and we may never know because a.i is no longer in his prime.

but the ur response gives me the impression that ur either very young/ a chicago fan/ or ignant lol

end to end with the basketball, Jason Kidd was the fastest in the NBA for years. If you don't agree, you never watched him play with Lamond Murray at Cal-Berk, and with the Suns. But, many of the people on here are young, and don't remember basketball before 2002 for instance, so no big surprise.
But from end to end, with ball in hand, it didn't get faster than Jason Kidd.

Well yea I know he's a choice...did you check to see if I did? Or you probably can't.

Well it's pretty to understand why Drose is faster than AI...prime AI would dance around Rose.


But from end to end, with ball in hand, it didn't get faster than Jason Kidd.

Yeah with ball in hand I agree.

i saw him. and i remember his years with the suns, and trust me, he was FAST but not as fast as A.I nor Rose and shouldnt be on the list. he had extremely fluid movement with the ball and he was a speedy dude, but compared to the others, im going to have to disagree.

07-27-2009, 08:57 PM
Chris Mihm is the fastest player alive...

Haha. Getting to a serious part. I'd be in tie with Tony Parker, Devin Harris, and Monta Ellis.

Derrick Rose is fast, but i don't see him in tie with those 3 players. I'm also not being a homer. Those 3 are the fastest players i've seen ever still. Derrick Rose is still fast, but people are giving him TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO x3050432502345042 much credit. I don't hate him, but i've even heard about people comparing Derrick Rose to even MJ just because he's great and he's a Bulls.

Grew up a big fan of Iverson because the Bulls had no one but Corey Benjamin.

AI had a much better x-over than Rose.

It's quite impossible to tell who was faster in their prime, seeing as AI is past his and Rose hasn't reached his prime.

How does his limited number of seasons played affect his speed? Is he going to be faster after 15 years in the league?
