Being a Knicks fan aside, but why would you not consider Shumpert an athletic guard?

There is alot of athletic guards. Derozan, Lebron James, Shannon Brown, J.R. Smith, Tony Allen, Derrick Rose, etc......

As far as the superior guard, I'd be a real hard toss up between LBJ and Westbrook, because at any game they can be unguardable. But to say you can't include Shump in the same sentence as Westbrook, is being unfair.

Westbrook and a healthy Rose are by far the best athletes at the guard position. Both big enough that quick midgets don't bother them, but as explosive as hell.

1.shump- with his great leaping ability and on ball defense he has to be numero uno.
2.bledsoe- did you not see his 2 dunks the other night? simply amazing no pg has ever done that in the fashion he did.
3.vince carter- half-man, half-amazing carter contnues to live up to his nickname with incredible and powerful dunks, he can simply play above the rim.
4.gerald say it aint so henderson- ummmmm did you all happen to miss his power house blake griffin over Superman the other night, simply historic.
5.nate the great robinson- hellllllllooooo hes 5'9 throwing down monsteress dunks game in and game out, well derserving of a top 5 spot....

He would keep up with Rose and Russell without a doubt.

Lol at only two people mentioning Bledsoe. He's arguably the best and top 3 at worst. Insane speed, stronger upper body than Rose or Westbrook, more freakish hands and wingspan, 40 inch vert.

Torn ACL out the whole first half of the season Shumpert? Hopefully he comes back with the elite athleticism, but it's far from a guarantee.

Bledsoe + Westbrook have the best skill to athleticism ratio for the 23 and younger crowd imo. Rose is TBD, but obviously was in the discussion for #1 prior.

agureghian
12-24-2012, 06:29 PM
I gotta say, that high top fade makes shumpert more athletic.


OT: Westbrook, then Rose, then Irving, then Bledsoe, then Wall.

I would say, Westbrook, Brown, Rose, Bledsoe and Igoudala (I consider Igoudala a shooting guard).

That top 5 is in order too.

$GangGr33n$
12-24-2012, 07:39 PM

There's been plenty of freakishly athletic SGs ( Gerald Green, Shannon Brown, etc) that have come through the league. Now if you're talking about established players then he's obviously behind MJ, Vince, AI and in the argument with Wade and Tmac.

1. The question should be 2nd most athletic guard since anyone who has watched the NBA over the last 4+ seasons knows the only player anywhere near Russell Westbrook's athletic ability at the guard position is Rose and Westy is almost on the same tier as LeBron who really is up there by himself.

Don't agree with me ask the GMs (http://www.nba.com/news/2012-13-gm-survey/index.html)


Which player is the most athletic?
1. LeBron James, Miami -- 62.1%
2. Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City -- 20.7%
3. Blake Griffin, L.A. Clippers -- 13.8%
4. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City -- 3.4%
Last year: LeBron James -- 46.2%

2. How in heaven's name is Shumpert getting any mention here is beyond me. Eric Bledsoe is twice this athlete Shumpert was even before the injury suddenly a dude who has torn his ACL is more athletic GTFO Knicks fans.

1. Telling Knick fans to GTFO when you can't even read? The question was never who is the most athletic, it was who is the best athletic guard....

2. Prove Bledsoe is twice the athlete... Shumpert led the 2011 draft with a 36.5 standing vertical and 42 inch total vert and also came in 2nd at the combine with 18 bench reps.
http://www.draftexpress.com/article/2011-NBA-Combine-Athletic-Testing-Results-3725

3. What does him tearing his ACL have anything to do with if a dude is an athlete or not. Pretty sure Adrian Peterson is a better athlete than 95% of the guys in the NBA and he tore his ACL
