Westbrook has bad balance, the dude jumps the wrong way all the time, his coordination is off more times than not.


I'd take either Rose or Francis over him.

Prime Baron Davis is awfully close to Steve Francis.

Funny how I used to think, you couldn't get more athletic than Baron Davis/Stever Francis at the PG position. Then Rose/Westbrook/Wall come along, and your like,

Francis and Baron Davis are as athletic as all of them apart from Rose.

True dat! when questions like this get asked there is an implied element of league success behind everyone's answers. Eliot williams (Injured blazers player who nobody knows about) has a 48 inch vert, is lightning quick and strong. I don't see what argument you could make for Jordan over him in terms of pure athleticism Other than "6 RINGS BITCHES!!!!"

Anyhow, Jeff Teague. Everyone in here talks about Rose and Westbrook, Teague has shut down Westbrook the majority of the times he's played him and we all remember the 2010 Playoffs.

Length = athleticism?
Being tall and being athletic are two different things, and Robinson is certainly the latter
