Building the All-Athletic NBA Team Entering 2013-14 Training Camp

Some guys have all the hops.

The NBA is teeming with athletic fiends. Players who can dunk from afar, outrun a speeding bullet and generate hang time that lasts longer than Allen Iverson's stint with the Memphis Grizzlies.

These athletes aren't to be confused with the NBA's best players. In some cases, they are. And in most cases, they're well known. But not always, because it's not about that.

Superstars aren't the only ones who can rock rims, demoralize defenses and jump higher than Michael Jordan on a pogo stick. Role players, burgeoning prospects, glorified benchwarmers—they can be freakishly athletic too.

Imagine compiling a team consisting of only those players, the ones we judge solely by their athletic ability and not necessarily their stat lines. Imagine what that roster would like.

Never mind, you don't have to.
