Default Most athletic player in the L.

Now when I say athletic i just mean an all around hell of an athlete that could dominate in another sport other than basketball. I'd have to say the two nearest to the top are Lebron James and Allen Iverson. Both of them are beast on the basketball court but have you seen them play football?!?!

Lebron James ran a 4.5 in the 40 yard dash and has a 44 inch vertical.I think he was ranked top ten in the nation at reciever before he stuck with basketball.That dude could've been a next generation wide reciever

Allen Iverson Was Mr. Basketball and Mr. Football in VA. He played quarterback, running back, DB, and Punt Returner. He also holds records for punt returns TDs, and interceptions for the state of VA. Allen iverson has a 42 inch vert and he is only 5'10. I know he cant jump like he use to but he's still hell a fast.

Dwight Howard could also be thrown into the top.

Baron Davis wouldn't be a bad secondary player given his speed and the fact that he is a tank.

Nate Robinson. Had a college scholarship to play Football and Basketball at Washington. Could have easily gone pro in either.

Also holds the WA state record for 110 Hurdles.

LeBron is one hell of an athlete. Too tall to be an NFL receiver though. Those safeties would have a field day tackling him by the legs.

Imo, I find Kobe to be very athletic, being able to shoot/score and put up amazing points. Decent vert leap, quick, and long stamia.

But the athlete that has the body to dominate in other sport is probably Lebron, quick, good size/strength, and nice verts.

Nate Robinson, Lebron James, or Allen Iverson. Steve Nash too because of his soccer and hockey skills.
