    So you claim that...
    But yet you pick a gif of the smallest dude on the field lol!

    - The field is way to small for those big guys.
    - 'Wait were losing!' Quick time-out lol!
    - 'Aaah im so tired...' Quick lets swap our players unlimitedly.
    Basketball = overrated.

    They are too tall. They would have glass chins and terrible centre of gravity.

    Football players are the world's top athletes (soccer for the slow). There is a World outside the US.

    I reckon NFL and rugby players would on average beat the shit out of NBA players and would transition to MMA better as well.

    No sane rational person can take anyone or any source serious that says Hockey is more popular than Basketball. Are you even a sports fan do you even know what Hockey and Basketball are? Simple basic logic says a sport where all you need is a hoop and a ball and two people to play a game will be played more and more popular than a sport where you need an ice rink, skates, and all kinds of equipment to play.

    I bet there's more fans and participants of basketball in American and China alone than probably the whole world of Hockey.

    hockey ain't even a global sport and it beats the shit out of basketball, same goes for cricket
    just shut up you're obviously extremely biased
    and the numbers don't lie

    oh and btw you dumbass, its not ice hockey, normal hockey
    you need a stick and two goals

    saying I don't know what hockey and basketball are, dude doesn't even know you can play hockey on a field and not on ice, the fuck?!

    [​IMG]
    here a picture of the Dutch winning their 8th world cup by beating Ireland with 0-6 lol

    oh and btw, if you would have checked the link I sent, you would have known it wasn't about ice hockey but field hockey. Do some research before you make an ass out of yourself

    It's field hockey. You only need a stick and a ball. I'm not calling racist here, but we view the world from a Eurocentric perspective, as well as national perspective. What's popular in my neck of the woods must be popular everywhere. But you are right, nothing can touch soccer. Just about every ice hockey player not from North America was also a high level soccer player in his teens. Soccer you can play everywhere. In cramped quarters, you may have to use a tennis ball for soccer ball. Everything is a soccer field.

    LMAO. Basketball will never surpass football. Don't play. You are sounding like Dana White. Football is the world's sport. The World Cup is bigger than the Olympics. Enough said.

    For perspective, John Wall is 6'4", 210lbs, with an 80" reach.

    I've seen basketball players carried off the court while crying because of stubbed toes. These pampered poofs wouldn't last 20 seconds in a combat sport

    Everyone likes to pretend there are secret better guys... Football guys are already in MMA so basketball guys are the next thing to jerk off to. MMA already has Rousey's bf as a failed basketball guy and he did ok.

    Only in the US tho.

    rest of the world doesnt care about basketball.
    Hardest sport to become succésful in are Soccer and Tennis tho.

    With that said, most NBA players would be really good at MMA if they tried it.
    I stil think NHL players would be killers in MMA,
    Big strong dudes who are used to play hard.

    In NBA you are not allowed to touch eachother

    Yes I've seen threads and posts of people saying Lebron with a few months training would be a killer in the octagon.
