Now we all know NBA players would kick everyone's *** here overall as they are the best of the best, even the fringe nba players. However certain players are particularly terrible at certain aspects in the game, so much so that some people might think they might be better than them in that aspect. (not me lol).


Anyways, discuss.

Andrew Bogut (Or any other player who sucks at Free Throws) in a Free Throw contest.

Jeremy Lin. Anything.

Yeah, fair to say most people here who were guards or a SF at even high school level could out shoot and if they still play out handle a pretty decent amount of bigs.

Nothing. Nothing basketball related anyway.

I could extract DNA from a virus better than they can because I have to do it every day, but even then I'm not particularity good at it and I'm not certain Stephen Curry wouldn't be better at it than I am. I might be able to out-drink them? Whisky? Pretty sure I would destroy them on any video game.

I could probably average more minutes per game and turn up for more games than Bogut. Is that a skill?

I'm looking at draft combine results on draftexpress. I have a higher no step vert than a decent amount: Surprising one is Kawhi Leonard. Only a 25.5" no step vert? That's alright if you're a regular athlete and still fine, but not quite what you'd expect from an athlete of his caliber. His reach/hand measurements are cartoonish though, so he makes up for it there.

****in Swaggy P posted a 39.5" no-step, and looking at Rudy Gay's max vert reach he nearly could've dunked on a 12 foot rim out of college - Wow!

Not a skill, but a lot of these bigs are slow as ****, so you might have that going for ya.

The sad thing is looking at some of the bigs who have you beat in basically everything. Guys like Terrence Jones.

These were my first thoughts. Pretty much beating poor shooting big men at fts or just a shooting contest.

Andrea Bargnani in a fist fight. He'd probably strain his calf or something the second the fight started.

Deandre Jordan ( free throws)
Dwight Howard ( 3 pointers)
Brook Lopez (passing)
Jeremy Lin (dribbling)
Kobe Bryant (passing to a teammate with less than 1 minute)
Nick Young (pulling chicks) sorry swaggy Iggy looks like the Wayans brothers in White Chicks
Kevin Love ( any sort of Defense)
Andre Miller (anything athletic, Jumping, running, back peddling) I should know this, I played with him in college
