Kind of was inspired by the Sir Charles thread, thought it would be a fun topic to discuss with all the freakish athletic guys in the league. Anyways who are the three best athletes on your team?

Kawhi Leonard, James Anderson (?), and uh... Dejuan Blair? Richard Jefferson? I dunno.

Lakers + Giants

What about Tony?

What about Tony?

For speed, yeah, but his vertical isn't anything special. Maybe below average even. Corey Joseph is more athletic than Tony Parker.

I think Steph Curry is more athletic then "Monta"

Let me just answer this quickly so you can rest your weak case of athleticism then vs now:

Atlanta Hawks - Josh Smith, Jeff Teague and Marvin Williams
Boston Celtics - Rajon Rondo, Mikhael Pietrus and Brandon Bass
Charlotte Bobcats - Tyrus Thomas, Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo and Gerald Henderson
Chicago Bulls - Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer and Luol Deng
Cleveland Cavaliers - Alonzo Gee, Tristan Thompson and Ryan Hollins
Dallas Mavericks - Vince Carter, Shawn Marion, Delonte West and Rodriguez Beaubois
Denver Nuggets - Wilson Chandler, Ty Lawson, Kenneth Faried and Chris Anderson
Detroit Pistons - Will Bynum, Rodney Stuckey and Tayshaun Prince
Goldenstate Warriors - Monta Ellis, Nate Robinson and Dorrell Wright
Houston Rockets - Terrance Williams, Courtney Lee and Chase Budinger
Indiana Pacers - Paul George, Danny Granger and Dante Jones
Los Angeles Clippers - Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and Solomon Jones
Los Angeles Lakers - Kobe Bryant, Josh McRoberts and Devin Ebanks
Memphis Grizzlies - Rudy Gay, OJ Mayo and Tony Allen
Milwaukee Bucks - Brandon Jennings, Luc Mbah a Moute and Larry Sanders
Miami Heat - Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh
Minnisota Timberwolves - Derrick Williams, Michael Beasley, Wes Johnson and Wayne Ellington
New Jersey - Deron Williams, Jordan Farmar and MarShon Brooks
New Orleans - Trevor Ariza, Al-Farouq Aminu and Eric Gordon
New York - Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudamire and Tyson Chandler
Oklahoma City Thunder - Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and James Harden
Orlando Magic - Dwight Howard, Jason Richardson and Von Wafer
Philadelphia Sixers - Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young and Jrue Holiday
Phoenix Suns - Shannon Brown, Marcin Gortat and Hakim Warrick
Portland Trail Blazers - Gerald Wallace, Nicholas Batum and Wesley Matthews
Sacramento Kings - Tyreke Evans, Travis Outlaw and JJ Hickson
San Antonio Spurs - Richard Jefferson, Kawhi Leonard, James Anderson and Corey Joseph
Toronto Raptors - DeMar DeRozan, Ed Davis and Amir Johnson
Utah Jazz - Derrick Favors, Devin Harris and CJ Miles
Washinton Wizards - John Wall, JaVale McGee, Trevor Booker and Nick Young

The league today isn't comparable to previous eras in terms of athleticism, most of the guys I listed aren't the team's best players, just goes to show how deep teams are (athleticism-wise)... Why don't you list each teams' top athletes back in '95, '85, '75 or '65 for comparison?

I thought you were trying to debate what I said in the thread about Chuck... Chuck was a beast back then, but his athleticism would be avg in today's league.

Monty

Monty and Curry in my mind are similar, when runing up&down the court

K, I just wrote a essay on here an it refreshed the page as soon as I was done so long story short...
Curry's true atheism (Speed+quickness) is better then Elise
In regards of the numbers, I compared NBA athletes to him, observation and my own personal opinion

Ellis is faster and quicker than Curry. Curry is not athletic; people will laugh at you for saying that. The fact that you spewed random stats and misspelled their names show that you are ignorant in many ways. Athletic PG? LOL after your posts, are you sure?
