    seems lower in in a lot of categories, but those are all things that can be improved. Physical (ie wingspan) and mental attributes, not so much

    well, a lot of them could drastically improve their games by getting stronger. durant is what, 19 years old? and he has like 10 foot long arms. i don't get why people are making a big deal out of this.

    I'd personally rather have a rediculous vertical.

    that's because he's a stick that weighs 190 at 6'9

    so that's understandable that he can't bench his weight

    Many people are making a big deal. I've seen this posted about 100 times on here, and of course it's being hyped-up on ESPN.

    Doesn't require it, but strength can help significantly.

    What all would benching help him with, besides things like passing/shooting?

    :rofl: is that why greg oden beat durant and probably everyone with his size in just about every category at this workout session?

    oden is also only a freshman and his numbers at this point in his career are far better than anyone elses were....and there aren't any true dominant big men in the NBA since Shaq has kinda went downhill. Dwight Howard is one of the few.

    upper body strength helps a ton when you're posting up to score and getting rebounds.

    nba combine is worthless. tj ford was rated as slower than chris kaman.

    dwight howard can't do shit on offense.

    :dunno: could go either way... big post-type players usually have an easier time making an immediate impact :dunno:

    Only 5 of the last 15 rookies of the year were post players.

    Three were four-year major college players (Duncan, Brand, Okafor), one was an experienced foreigner (Gasol), and the other was Amare.
