LBJ vs Wiggins(Athleticism) 

Post#1 » by lbjvswiggins » Mon Apr 1, 2013 4:13 am

High School Lebron vs High School Wiggins. Whose more athletic overall? I think Lebron personally was faster and quicker, and just as powerful. But idk about vertical leap. Wiggins seems a bit better in that category.

Lebron is more athletic. In terms of vertical, I'd probably go with Lebron, but Wiggins has more flare. Anyone watch the skills/three point shooting/dunk contest last night?

Lebron is actually only slighty the better athlete. Lebron is bigger and stronger but surpisingly only slighty faster(And that's saying something because Bron is very fast). Wiggins is actually quicker than Lebron, he has a first step that is only rivaled by Carmelo Anthony at Small Forward. He also has quicker accleration in the half court with his spin move. In the open court I might take Bron in quickness but not in the halfcourt. Vertical leap is tough but I would have to say it looks like a tie. Both have 40 or more inch veritcal's and both can consistently get their head's at or above rim level!
