Manute Bol would've been a HW contender with two weeks of sprawl training.
athleticism is usually defined by how effectively and quickly the athlete can perform triple extension:
Triple extension is a common movement performed with many different activities. Some of these activities include Olympic lifting, jumping rebounds, sprinting and even gymnastic movements like back flips. A key point to remember with a triple extension are the 3 joints that perform the movement:
Well athleticism encompasses a littany of tangible traits/abilities.
Ppl prioritize them according to preference therefore crowning a greatest athlete will inherently be subjective.
With that said, NBA players, NFL players (skill positions) are IMO the world's best athletes due to elite ability in several athletic aspects commonly accepted as vital for such rankings.
*Speed, Power (Explosiveness), Agility, Vert, Coordination (Body and Hand-Eye).*
I do believe pro rugby players are the most well rounded athletes in the world and many are exceptional in certain areas but overall they aren't as elite in as many of the aforementioned categories as the best athletes from the NBA or NFL.
This goes without saying, but this is my 2 cents.
Meh, take them off or restrict their roid intake and there wouldn’t be many that do well in mma
I'd say basketball or football.
But Jon Jones is already on steroids....
Cause only big fit guys who can do what they do. That's why they shoot a ball for a living and not knock each other out. They chose a sport that would pay them a hell of a lot more money to run, jump, pass, shoot.
They're not saying these athletes would be able to win an MMA fight.
Also in the US i imagine Football players would be considered the most athletic (in most positions)
No chance will it.
I think an American Football linebacker would be much more athletic and much stronger than a pussy basketball player
You still ignoring my point but I expect as much from you knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, sister kissing, cucks. I also was speaking of a body type, that is tall and lanky, which the NBA has in spades.
It's extremely hard to catch a fly. Why isn't that a multibillion dollar thing? It's just as legit as these dumbass ball chasing sports. I'm not disagreeing/shitting on you, just throwing that out there.
Basketballers are more well rounded than most athletes, not too mention are some of the largest in the world, larger athletes are rare find. They have great hand/eye co-ordination, size, power, strength & stamina.
God damn you sherturds are retards. Who said that makes you the greatest? You cucks are jumping to massive conclusions. Tall and rangy(learn to spell you dumb fuck) is a physical trait, like Jon Jones (who is the GOAt so you prove yourself wrong cuck) unlike the Trex arms of Lobov. Obviously you assume everything else is equal and you always take the longer reach over the shorter.
YEA you can durability? Power? Killer instinct?
When you can start to generate billions of dollars annual on catching a mother fucking house fly, have it broadcasted globally, and events held worldwide then maybe you might start to have a point. Also these 'dumbass ball chasing sports' are the reason why talent pool is so shallow in the heavier divisions. There is a direct correlation for when you go up in weight and the shallower it gets and the reason is because those top big guys are choosing sports that glamorize playing with balls, instead of getting kneed in the face.
Yes there are some manlets that can make it in the big sports, but most are not and why the lower weight divisions are more stacked.
According to Sherdog taller fighters should always beat shorter ones
Basketball or Rugby for big strong guys who can run and do other things.
Whoever wins the decathlon is the worlds greatest athlete, and this is not even a debate.
Hmm. possibly but they have the advantage of starting and stopping. I go with a sport that's requires more continuous activity.
That flop hard and sell fouls.... lol. Fuck basketball.
But hey, if I was 7 foot and could make that much money, fuck MMA.
