Default Nba, Mlb, Nfl, Mls. . .

To get into any of these pro sports it takes a great degree of athleticism, but which one does everybody think it takes the most to get in to? Feel free to branch out into any other sport.

im not really sure about the MLS, but i think the nba is the most difficult league to get into simply by the fact that every team in the nba has less players than those of the other leagues

NBA probably requires the most athleticism to get into, but the NFL requires a bigger athelete, so many could say that the NFL has the most athletic players. IMO, its apples to oranges.

The NBA requires a lot of athletism and has the smallest rosters.

So we can all agree MLB takes the least. Works for me. I personally would say NBA over NFL, although I don't really have anything to back up that claim. And I too, don't know anything about MLS, just figured I'd throw that out there!

At least with the NFL, you can be 5'10" and get in without a problem. How many guys in the NBA are under 6'5"?

There are quite a few under 6"5 in the nba, but the NBA has heaps of athleticism, NFL doesnt really need jumping, but it does need a bit of athleticism

The NFL doesn't require you to necessarily be in shape because there are so many different roles..

The NBA needs the most, the NFL is in the middle, and the MLB is last..

note: MLS is garbage. Real football is played in europe.

Athleticism is very important in basketball(jumping, running, etc.) so I guess it's the NBA...In Football/Soccer, you also need a lot of athleticism especially if you play the forward and goal keeper position....You don't need to be as athletic if you're playing the midfield or the back/defense position....don't know much about American football so I can't really comment on the NFL...
