Is Anyone Here Able To Articulate How Much Better An Elite NBA Player Is Than...
 

 
...your standard week-end warrior who can hoop really damn well?

Just had a conversation with two of my younger cousins, and they don't believe dudes like Dame, Kyrie, and Steph can be but so much better than other dudes who are nice of the same size, because they have no real size and athletic advantages.

I can actually understand why they feel that way, because it's hard to look at an averaged size hooper and think he's out of this world, as opposed to dudes like Bronze, Giannis, KD, etc... who look like they could out-size and out-athletic motherfu#kers.

i dont think we can truly fathom how much work athletes put into their craft, specifically to become professional at it.

lou williams said in an interview that since ive seen it stuck with me because ive never really thought of it and i think he was referencing something similar to what you are talking about

"we are professional basketball players, we play when we don't want to play". it's simple i know but it shows you the type of mindset you have to have to truly be successful not just in basketball but in pretty much anything. couple that with being genetic anomalies helps create the recipe of what you see on tv being way greater than what you see at an LA fitness

Fair enough, but it's obvious that many people have a hard time grasping that level ability because it's so far removed from their lives.

Dudes see 6'3" and under guys all the time, and it's just hard to image someone can be all-world at that size, for some people .... when they have no ridiculous athletic advantages.

Like I said, nobody even pretends they can beat someone like KD. He don't look beatable by an average Joe. That's just an example.

The ski1l level between a starting and back up Qb is more impressive. One player going down can ki1l the entire season for a team

Most n1ggas are out of touch with reality.

I’ve heard grown men claim it’s magnets on the rims in the NBA and that’s what makes guys like Curry look so great shooting the ball.

An elite weekend warrior might not look like an embarrassment on a d league court. Put him against elite talent in the association....stop it

I've played against C and D level nba talent and they are unstoppable against regular players at your local LA fitness or whatever gym you play at. To this day Gerald Henderson is one of the strongest players I've ever played against. I remember thinking to myself if he is this strong I couldn't imagine how strong guys like Giannis, LeBron, etc are. Those players are strong enough to bully Gerald and Gerald was at LA fitness bullying the hell out of every player there with ease!!

You really don’t realize how big guys like Steph and Kyrie are until you get some decent seats at a NBA game…get some seats by the tunnel and you realize

Your weekend warriors are playing against weak comp and only hoop a few days out the week at most…NBA players are hooping everyday…and if the weekend warrior had a shot in the nba he’d be in the nba

part of the reason it's so far removed from our lives is because many of us arent GREAT at anything. so we don't understand the amount of work and dedication to truly be great. and to be clear, nba players are GREAT basketball players

and i disagree with the athletic advantage, nba players have a huge athletic advantage. for one they are genetic freaks, secondly they've been training to be athletes most of their lives. they are in the 1% of all of society when it comes to that. these guys have trained their body for years to play the best athletes in their sport running up and down a court for 35-40 minutes 82 times in a 6 month span at the HIGHEST level

if you are capable of doing that you have physical advantages, earned advantages...but advantages nonetheless

If they did use magnets it would be to make certain teams miss.

I had floor seats when Anthony Davis and Boogie Cousins were playing for the Pelicans. It was shocking seeing both of them in person.

QB is the toughest position in all sports.

Just saw AD earlier this week and dude is big…saw Steph last month and he looks a lot bigger and stronger in person…TV doesn’t do any of these dudes justice

What? Have any of them actually seen an actual NBA game in person? Try shooting a fu#king NBA 3 and seeing how “easy” it is.. Im assuming these n1ggas never played? You have a lot more respect if you were an athlete for 1, and for 2 if you actually played the given sport..,
