The slowest stars ever at the NBA Draft Combine

- by

Speed is quite important when trying to predict the future success of NBA prospects, particularly for ball-handlers and wings.

However, it’s not the end-all, be-all.

Either way, the league still measures speed for participating prospects at the annual draft combine in various drills.

Below, we present the slowest NBA All-Stars ever measured, which we determined by adding players’ lane-agility time and their three-quarter sprint.

Look out for the likes of Kevin Durant and Rudy Gobert, two of the league’s current greats, both of whom were quite slow in those drills.
