    This guy brings up a good point. Since it's equally as difficult to be a top 15 UFC Heavyweight as it is to be the MVP of the NBA.

    Guy gets injured every year from basketball. He'd probably break a shin from heavy bag practice let alone be healthy enough to fight.

    Terrible. He has no heart. He'd get knocked out, leave his camp and join the camp of the guy who knocked him out

    Why would he even want to? He would make 20% of the money and 100% more brain damage.

    Poorly, not strong or explosive enough. James Johnson is a tank who trains UFC tho.

    Terrible. He couldn't even bench 185 lbs one time when he was coming into the NBA. Since there is a direct correlation between the amount someone bench press and their fighting ability, its safe to say he'd get creamed

    Here you can see him easily lifting 315 though. In fact, given how easily he lifted it, I would say he's stronger than Brock Lesnar now.

    Average NBA player would be champ with 2 weeks of training

    Elite NBA players could do it after watching few videos on YouTube

    I've seen Nelson dunk a basketball.

    I haven't seen Durant sub anybody lately.

    Durant might not do particularly well but quite a few basketball players could. They have ridiculous height/reach and for HWs their footwork is next level.
