The talent in the NBA, and all professional sports for that matter, has reached an all-time high. I know you have the legend lovers who will say Bird, Magic, and Russell are still the better athletes. But in reality, these guys couldn’t compare to the talent level of guys in the NBA today. The physical strength and new style of play in the league would run these legends right out of the gym. Let it be known, I respect the legends of the game but the play back then was completely different then it is today.
The reason I brought up this whole talent thing is because of two unbeliavable shots that I have seen go down in the past month or so. One of the shots was by Kevin Garnett on November 18th against the Golden State Warriors, and the other by Andre Iguodala during last night’s loss against the Denver Nuggets. As you will see in the video’s both of the shots are truly amazing and require strength, talent, and a little bit of luck.
And there they are… I’ll leave it up to you to decide which one is better. KG’s was an off balance circus shot from the opposite charity stripe, and Iggy’s was a full court one handed toss while standing still. They are both very impressive to me, you can say it is luck all you want but it isn’t a mere coincidence that professional basketball players hit these shots quite often.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
