Two very similar players who have unreal athleticism.. LeBron is faster and more agile and Blake is a better leaper and is stronger imo.

LeBron




Blake

Lebron.

But Blake's top 10 list is better than 80% of the top 10 dunk lists.
Also if you consider that it's only 1 month in his rookie year.

Id give it to Lebron although I do have to say Blake comes awful close

But yea Lebron is a better leaper, faster, and just by speculation might have more muscle than Blake

But then again Blake is way more athletic than Lebron first was when he entered the league. If he can put the same work ethic Lebron did on athleticism that would be scary!

are you fucking kidding me? sure Blake Griffin has had some damn amazing alley oops, dunks, etc., but do you see Blake Griffin running down people who think they have wide open layups then suddenly they get blocked out of nowhere? there's more to athleticism than just jumping, folks. and I think LeBron can hold his own in that category as well.

"Two very similar players." Please tell me you're joking. It's an absolute joke to compare them at all, whatsoever, in any way, at this point. LeBron James is a top 2 player in the NBA who has had an amazing number of accolades and has had arguably the best start to his career than anyone else in NBA history. Blake Griffin is simply a rookie with 1-2 months of experience who has accomplished nothing in this league except for a couple of highlight reel plays. And don't even get me started on their playing style - Blake Griffin is someone who lives inside the post and barely has a jumpshot. LeBron James can play every position except probably Center, he can shoot from anywhere, he can drive just as good as anyone in the league, he's one of the best passers, and is a handful for anyone who's guarding him on defense. Blake Griffin can blow by 95% of Power Forwards/Centers on offense but that's really it. He doesn't have any devastating post moves, or a killer jumpshot, or anything close to resembling a three pointer, he's simply a rookie who will blow by you after a missed shot and score on fastbreaks almost every time he gets the ball. I know Blake Griffin is a rookie and still has a lot of time to improve, but please, comparing him to LeBron James is like Jamaican Man saying he doesn't masturbate to Dirk Nowitzki twice a day. You have to be fucking insane to believe it.

Lebron is the best athlete in the NBA, and also is a pretty fundamental player as well.

Blake is a great athlete with the speed and strength that most guys in the NBA dream to have, but he's another Kwame when he has to shoot the ball.

LeBron James has a very high vertical leap/jump, which is unnatural at his size/stature.
