LeBron says his 40 time this past summer: 4.6. "I was just messing around though. No training."

Impressive. In the summer of 1964, Wilt Chamberlain also ran it in 4.6, barefoot and & wearing a suit/tie).


December 21, 2012

Sonny Hill said of Lebron James: “No one in the history of the NBA with the body size of Lebron James, can compare to what Lebron James does athletically on the basketball court but one, Wilt Chamberlain.”

I'm not really that impressed if it's 4.6. I would have thought better than that. 4.6 is fairly normal for any young guy in good shape that is athletic.

in 1983, Sports Illustrated reported that Michael Jordan's 40 time went from 4.6 when he first enrolled at UNC to 4.3 when he was a Junior:
Smith says Jordan is the hardest worker he's ever coached. In high school Jordan hustled so, he was nicknamed The Rabbit. Rabbit, run. When he enrolled at Chapel Hill, Jordan ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds. This fall he ran a 4.3. By running and lifting weights he has substantially built up his upper body and gained 12 pounds in two years, most of it in the shoulders.

Pretty good for his size. If he pushes it down to 4.4 that would be eye-opening.

I'm sure he could if he trained hard for months specifically for it like the guys at the combine do.

Do some guys realize how hard it is to run a 4.6 at 6 8 260? that is impressive. Thats athletiscm similar to jevon kearse who was a freak and not as tall.

Calvin johnson is just a freak of nature.
