Default Insider request: Combine results

I did this yesterday, and i do appreciate the user that sent in the article, but the results of the combine and draft measurements are out and I would love to see the article that has it all. Thank you.

Durant Wingspan is longer than Oden's. And Oden has a higher vertical.

How much weight is the bench press? And how did Oden not even do it once?

It's 185lbs, and Oden was the only one that didnt participate, have to remember his wrist injury.

You sure Durant didn't participate either? I have a hard time believing he couldn't do it once either.

Im sure:

There are several startling revelations in the numbers, and the one that immediately pops out is the bench press. Players were rated on how many times they could bench press 185 pounds. Oden didn't attempt the bench press in order to prevent an injury to his right wrist, which has recently recovered from injury.

But get this: Only one player was unable to bench press 185 even once - Kevin Durant.

Oden probably didnt participate in it. But as for the people who did...some of those results for bench are really sad. Horford going for 20 is pretty much expected. I'm impressed with Conley doing 185 13 times considering he only weighs 175, and I am very impressed with the skinny bastard that is Corey Brewer for essentially benching his weight 11 times.
On the other hand, Brandan Wright and Julian Wright should wear paper bags to their pre-draft workouts because 2 reps is just embarrassing. I know basketball isnt all about strength, but unless these guys put on a little muscle they are going to get tossed around inside.

SO against nba competition (and many of these guys will never pan out in the nba), hes the slowest and has the least ups. He will be successful in the nba, but it is alarming. Im more sold on acie law everyday.
