You have to define the parameters that you are using here. Excellence in performance or pure athletecism (which to me are explosiveness, speed, jumping ability, agility, quickness etc).

How insane?
Have to start skating by 3 years old. 3 sigma balance, endurance, strength just to get out on the ice at that level.

Then one can begin to start talking the processing and eye-hand coordination on stick handling, shooting accurately and tactically passing with the speeds involved.

John Havlicek

1612811421546.png

Havlicek was such a great athlete that he was all-state in football, basketball and baseball in sports-crazy Ohio. Reportedly he could throw a football 80 yards and also outrun anyone on the field. He was recruited by Woody Hayes to be the quarterback for the powerhouse Buckeyes, but turned him down to play hoops instead (mom preferred basketball).

The irascible Hayes said he would not bother John to play again, but he had his assistants do that for three more years, without success. Hayes would later tell recruits in the early 1960's that the best quarterback in the Big 10 wasn't even playing football, in reference to Havlicek.

Hondo actually was drafted by the Brows and tried out as a receiver with the perennial champions before his rookie season with the Celtics in 1962. At a trim 6-5 and 203 pounds he ran a 4.6 40-yard dash and had excellent hands. To show how good an athlete he was, despite not playing in college John was the last receiver cut from a contender loaded with wideouts, and was invited back for years but never tried out again.

Not a Brady fan (Fkn Tuck Rule) but his accomplishments over a career 7x the league average and against elite competition put him at the head of the class.

That being said, there are alot of 1b’s behind him, but he is without a doubt 1A.

Pete Maravich was pretty amazing as well.

In college at LSU, he averaged over 40 points each season(freshman couldn't play varsity back then).

Dude could ball.
