Ranking the fastest stars ever measured at the NBA Draft Combine

- by

Speed is an important predictor of success in the NBA, particularly for guards, which is why officials measure prospects’ lane-agility time and three-quarter sprint times every year.

And with the NBA Draft Combine having just passed, we decided to take a look at some of the fastest times measured for some of the league’s current and former All-Stars, including Dwyane WadeJohn Wall and James Harden.

To determine speed, we added up both the players’ lane-agility time and three-quarter sprint times.

You’re in for some surprises, which further prove you have to take combine results with a grain of salt.
