    Question is
    Which Sport Athletes can transition to Any Another Sport The Easiest?

    I think a basketball player can transition into any other sport the easiest.

    A Giannis , Lebron , Westbrook or Zion can play any sport


    Anyone that says soccer is wildin. from personal experience people i knew including me could play soccer and football (corner back and wr) because speed but basketball is a different story.

    The average 5 foot 10 soccer player has less chance thriving in basketball than a d fox type of player has of thriving in the mls.

    Im not saying its hard to play basketball but you need a combination of Skill most importantly (via Hashemm thabeet, shawn bradley, small ass mogues bugsy, isiah thomas etc) Size, Fundamentals, Fast twitch muscle . Of course in the hood we would play but being actually good is a different story:francis:

    May sound ignorant but lets discuss.:yeshrug:

    MJ was a AA baseball player...

    Chad Johnson couldnt play in the MLS.

    Being a great athlete doesnt mean you can play any sport at a high level.

    Bo Jackson is the only athlete that was a legit 2 sport star...which is why he has to be the GOAT.

    Being "athletic" has almost zero to do with being able to adjust to another sport.

    You're talking about different skill sets.
    It isn't like Bo Jackson just decided to play baseball. He played baseball all along and was good at it. The same is true for just about every two sport athlete.

    Asking any athlete in any sport to suddenly pick up a new skill set ...at the pro level is just about impossible.

    Even someone as physically gifted as Lebron could probably never be a great TE (as people have implied over the years). Sure he would be able to run a route. But to line up and pick up a blitzing LB all game? He'd get embarrassed and your quarterback would get killed.

    You sound crazy as hell

    They would be trash in other sports. You can’t just pick shyt up and play at a pro level just because you are athletic :wtf:

    Football has the best base athletic set.

    The question is whether you have the particular skills to play the other sport.

    But if you have football-level athleticism, then you're athletic enough at least to play any sport.

    All I know is basketball players basically walk onto NFL teams and become good tight ends. :yeshrug:

    Brian Jordan
    Alex Rodriguez
    Aaron Judge
    Ricky Henderson


    Just to name a few at the end of the day chose baseball over football and other sports

    U don't hear about qbs undergoing tommy johns. QBs do not put the stress on their arms that pitchers do. I remember trying to learn a curve ball and it feeling like my arm was going to fall off at the elbow.

    Poll is different than what the thread is asking. Basketball has the best athletes from a physical perspective, but they're unique athletes in ways that could actually hurt them going into other sports.

    None of these guys are ever transitioning to soccer. You can't spend your whole life controlling balls with your hands :dame: and then just start controlling the ball with your feet. Half of the people in those other sports can't a ball through wif to save their, so imagine making play a sport that's 90 straight minutes of kicking :mjlol:

    In hs I was working on a slider my coach told me never throw that my arm is not developed to throw breaking stuff with torque. Theres a reason why TJ surgery is way up because kids are throwing sliders and curves at 16 instead of throwing splitters and change ups which have the natural motion of a fastball
