i stand by my claim. come on now u guys train u guys know #1 in the world vs #500 player..... barely has much of a disparity.... its just how elite players are....

I feel what you are saying. That difference is indeed very small  when a.... mortal observes it. But when normalized at their level, which is the necessary to asses them, the difference is chaotic.
I'll use a sprinting analogy: Think of Bolt and someone dropping consistent sub 10s at tournaments, but never below 9.9s. What is their difference when we look at them? Minimal, they are both inhuman fast and beasty. But at their level, the difference is humongous, Bolt won't even notice the 9.9x guy exists. Basketball is not that simple as sprinting, but the analogy stands.

PS : In my sprint example used . 9.9x is top 100, not 500 ( https://www.iaaf.org/records/all-time-toplists/sprints/100-metres/outdoor/men/senior ). #500 best time ever is 10.14. Think Bolt/Gatlin/Gay/Powell/Blake, whoever you want, vs a guy with 10.14 PB. That is what #1 vs #500 in world class athletics is.

In any sport, #1 vs #500 live in different universes.

it's 12 x elite vs (maybe 10 non-elite, 2 elite) though.

yeah the NBA is almost by definition the top ~400 players in the world, minus a couple in college who belong in the pros and a few overseas. duke has 3-4 of those top 400, probably a few in the 400-600 range. but the rest of the team is more like top 1200 or something. jack white, an australian junior who might get drafted in the second round and bump along in the g-league for a while or go play in europe, is getting 20+ minutes and started three games. he would get murdered by any even below-replacement-level NBA forward.

Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

We see it all the time; a #1 ranked team get taken down by unranked team with players unranked, happens at every level of bball. this is where bball differs from ind sports like track n field, cause a motivated team with great chemistry can easily take down a disgruntled team with all allstars......

i stand by my point that a tough ncaa team can take down an nba team...... not that unlikely imo.

A tough NCAA team V an unmotivated NBA team would result in the NBA winning 99% of the time. Sure upsets happen in sport but it's a rarity.

no matter how disgruntled they are, they wouldn't want to lose to an ncaa team. they'd destroy those poor kids.

laughing while watching this game. 2 of the best teams in the nation, can't buy a bucket. awful shooting & shot selection. horrendous offense. but they'd put up a fight vs an NBA team lool.

i mean just look at most NCAA games. sure it's 8 minutes less than an nba game with a longer shot clock, but you get games in the 40's/50's. it's not even close to nba level.

sorry fdl. :ninja:

Damn, he blew his left shoe out. Looks like could be an MCL injury based on the way he fell.

1 2 pick for zion and morant is a lock imo

its going to be zion, morant, barrett

zion and morant both will fit in great with nba, zion with potential to be GOAT depending how how he handles the nba environment

many times NBA lost to overseas teams and even oly bball..... i would say the % is more like 80-90% which is why i stand by my point, i'm not talking about mid majors, i'm talking about prideful top NCAA teams talent level vs NBA.... disparity is not like ppl think, top ncaa talent vs nba, ncaa will hold their own 20% of the time imo
