The best players ever at the Draft Combine's bench press test

- by

At the annual NBA Draft Combine, top basketball prospects are tested physically in multiple ways, including strength.

To do that, the NBA asks those willing to participate to bench press 185 pounds (almost 84 kilograms) for as many reps as they possibly can. That’s unlike the NFL Combine, where football prospects have to bench press 225 pounds (102.1 kilograms) for as many reps as possible.

We’ve already looked at the worst performers in the NBA Draft Combine at the bench press drill, including Kevin DurantJamal Crawford and Luke Ridnour, who all failed to rep 185 pounds even once on bench press.

Below, we take a look at the best performers in the NBA Draft Combine’s bench press drill. You’ll notice quickly: Being super strong isn’t a huge advantage in basketball.
