Shaq
Wilt
Chuck
Earl Boykins
Nate
MJ
Bron
Gerald Wallace

I'm stuck.

Thing is, people like VC can jump high, but he doesn't have the reflexes, body control, agility that MJ did. There's many other great 'leapers' but they don't compare in other facets. Then there's other players that can jump, and also have great body control, but aren't as strong.

I haven't seen enough of David Thompson, Dr J or other old school players to comment on them. So I'm looking at all facets of athleticism, specially concerning players 6'4-6'8 range, since MJ is the standard imo.

Nique could jump, but he wasn't necessarily a freak, nor as great an athlete as Bron (strength, speed, quickness, agility etc.etc.).

I won't wait for 3 pages of posts before some finally brings up his name...

but what would be the definition of an ATHLETIC NBA player?

How about a player who won high jump titles on his major college track team. The same player who also was a competitive long jumper, triple jumper, shot-putter, and sprinter on that college team's 4x100 relay team? A player who tried out for the Kansas City Chiefs, outran their fastest running back, and was proclaimed the Chief's coach as a potential All-Pro at THREE different positions? A player who had TWO LEGITIMATE heavyweight boxing TITLE fights? A player who retired after leading the league in rebounding, (and averaging 22.5 rpg in his last post-season), was voted first-team all-defense, and set a FG% record that will probably never be broken...and then became, by at least some accounts, a WORLD-CLASS volleyball player? How about a player who was not only considered the strongest man in the sport...but among the strongest ATHLETES in the WORLD? The player that none other than Larry Brown witnessed shutting down the likes of Magic Johnson in a summer league game...and was doing so in mid-40's? A player that Kiki Vandewege witnessed over-powering 7-4 Mark Eaton in another summer league game...and in his late 40's at the time? A player who received a LEGITIMATE offer to come back to the NBA at age 50? A player who that had an eye-witness account of bench-pressing 465 lbs. at age 59? Or the same player who was running marathons in his 60's?

Other than that guy...how about John Havlicek or Dave DeBusschere?
