“Explosive” is a unique trait, usually god-given and only for a select few. LeBron James doesn’t just move toward the rim—he explodes.
Explosions in basketball are more numerous than at first glance. There is the explosion towards the rim when a baller takes flight, or when a player goes off on a scoring tangent without batting an eyelash.
And let’s not forget when all hell breaks loose on the basketball court and structure goes by the wayside: the fast break. That’s when the most explosive show their true selves.
Safe to say, it’s an elite class of athletes. They are no doubt the National Basketball Association's most exciting to watch.
