    I don't know why people think Jones is some kind of superathlete. I'm as white as it gets and I'm waaaay more atletic than him.

    Jones is definitely better at fighting, and that is what they are both best at, so I would have to say that Jones is a better athlete.

    In terms of how their raw athletic ability matches up, it's impossible to know. There is a video of Jones failing to dunk a basketball; however, according to his little brother the video is a troll job and Jon can easily dunk a basketball.

    Also, since when is dunking a basketball the end all indicator of athletic ability. I would say that Jones running a 4 and a half minute mile is far more impressive than basically any guy over 5'-10" dunking a basketball

    Athlecism isn't summed up by being able to dunk, and Jones didn't even tried and had zero technique ...

    There's no way he can't dunk with like 15 mins of trying with his height reach and bodyfat/muscle ratio

    without having too much knowledge I'd say Jones,but Griffin was probably a far harder worker.

    Forest had a much better work ethic but if they both had the same drive I think jones would be the overall better athlete of the two.
