Where are the super athletic swing men?
 
Remember the early and mid 00s we had lots of athletic swingmen like Desmond Mason, Ricky Davis.. Im talking incredible athletes who arent superstars but still have incredible highlights every now and then.

Where did they go? I feel like the league is made up of a bunch of Wesley Matthews' type dudes now.

JR Smith, Wade, LeBron, Josh Smith, Derozan

I think they've been overshadowed by uber athletic PGs.

rose, westbrook, wall, teague

I think World Peace and C. Anthony are pound-for-pound some of the strongest guys in the league. World Peace is so deficient in other athletics areas now though, so it's impossible to put him up there.

the league wised up; the crappy ones don't last. Gerald Green, James White etc.

Wasn't Desmond Mason somewhat good for one season then just pretty bad the rest?

He was decent for like a 5-year stretch.

I wondered this too when I was thinking of who should be in the Slam Dunk Contest?

There really are fewer dunkers at the SG/SF position than there used to be.

Shannon Brown, although he's as dumb as a rock.

Shumpert kid is absolutely dreadful. And really, many of them. Thing is (as the poster stated before) nowdays there are way more uber-athletic point guards too, that lessens the contrast.

Terrence Jones and Derozan are more athletic than any of them.
