Every NBA team has a player who can provide the high-flying highlights for his squad thanks to his athleticism.
These are those guys.
Blessed with rare physical gifts like the ability to elevate higher than the vast majority of human beings on the planet, the speed to leave defenders trying to read the name on the back of their jersey, the quickness to break the ankles of opposing players and more, these are the premier athletes from each team.
One quick caveat, though: When deciding who the most athletic player from each team was, I only considered players who regularly find themselves in the game. If you're athletic but that athleticism is wasting away on the bench, who really cares?
It's because of this that you won't find a guy like Travis Leslie challenging Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan for the right to represent the Los Angeles Clippers. There is one notable exception to this rule, though, which you'll find out about soon enough.
Because I know you don't really want to hear me wax poetic about the athletic feats of these superhuman basketball players, I've included a video of each and every player that attempts to showcase their athleticism. The text is fairly limited in an attempt to encourage you to spend valuable minutes of your day watching feats that will make your jaw drop.
So get excited and read on to find out who these players are.
