Default Who's quicker?

Alot of people seem to think John Wall is just super fast, I mean he is but he ain't as quick as they make him seem.

This dude just said Wall is flatout faster than Westbrook lol I think not.

Westbrook will burn John Wall leave him in the dust.

Who ya'll think is fastest?

Flat out top speed maybe Wall but as far as explosion off that first step it's definitely Westbrook. Westbrook may be the most athletic player in the league.

agreed and Russ is stronger. Wall has a lot of uncontrolled speed but he is faster.

Westbrook is faster, quicker, stronger, and more athletic.

Man I agree, John Wall is always going top speed so people think he is super fast,.

Most of the time Westbrook is going 3/4 speed. When Westbrook goes 100% speed man he sure can fly. The fastest point guard I've seen,

No doubt. Lawson and Rose are up there too but I don't think either of them have the top speed Westbrook has. That dude can straight up fly.

Which is pretty funny considering he couldn't even dunk in high school.

Westbrooks quite a bit quicker, and Walls quite a bit faster. Westbrook is probably the most athletic player in the league though.

LMAO I just seen Wall fast break and I think I may have been wrong.

Wall is fast a bullet. He picks up most of his speed at the halfcourt while Westbrook is accelerating super fast from the get go.

Wall looks faster to me. At top speed it almost feels like the camera is struggling to keep up.

Yes, Westbrook's raw athleticism is higher than all of those players.

I think he is in that discussion. The speed, quickness and leaping ability that he has is very impressive.

Honestly think Lawson is right there with anybody in terms of quickness\speed because he's like 5'10, 185. His entire game is built around it. He's nowhere near the athlete of those guy's tho. He can't use his speed\quickness in the same sense as a Westbrook who can just blow by people and dunk.
