blake's only gift is his jumping ability. other than that he's got trex arms and average quickness/speed and coordination.

not even top 10 in physical gifts. but clueless fans are so enamored with vertical leap they don't see that

Blakes def improved both the jumper and post game from the first couple years but in terms of talent as in non-athletic skills you can't teach he is not anywhere near even the top 20. I give him props but hes played well recently but to me when you talk talent you exclude athletic ability. Players like Nash, Pierce, Durrant and these types are talent based players.

I think you are so enamored with his vertical leap that you can't see his other natural talents, like how fast, athletic, and coordinated he is. Blake is a freak of nature in many ways beyond just leaping.

Barkley is close. Blake is #3 in talent. But he is FAR from being the third best player. that's a whole different story. I'd take Durant #2. His speed, athleticism, and hand-eye-coordination are unreal for a guy that size.

and while we're at it, you know who else is a freakish talent? Paul George.
but 'talent' is a subjective term. it means different things to different people.
