Default Is anyone as athletic as Lebron is?

After watching the highlights tonight, his speed/strength and effortlessly jumping a mile high and mile long made me wonder if anyone has possessed this kind of all round physical prowess before?

a few people who come to mind:

VC
MJ
dwight
josh smith


im sure there a lot of 90s stars who may have, so i'll leave u guys up to that since i dont know enough to give my opinion.

You can have many guys as athletic as LeBron, but in terms of that RARE ATHLETES... those guys who are tall, muscular, fast, quick, agile, can jump and are strong, that lists shortens.

Shawn Kemp
Jost Smith
Derrick Rose
Dwight Howard
Wilt- I'm sure he was one of the most athletic guys of his time.

And then many NFL players are highly athletic... Vernon Davis comes to mind, he plays for the San Francisco 49ers. He's a beast in the weightroom, 4.3-4.4 forty, about 6'5 250-260, all muscle. There are a lot of highly athletic guys in the NFL, and many of them have played numerous sports.

Wilt
Jordan
LeBron



To me Wilt/MJ were better athletic wise, but LeBron is the best combination of strength, speed, size, explosiveness.

I don't know. They just showed last night's highlights against the Raptors. He just **** all over them. That was some ridiculous stuff. LeBron was in the air half the time.
