All time physically strongest players in the NBA
Posted 08 September 2012 - 12:07 PM
Wilt Chamberlain:2,16 m,125 kg,it's said he could bench 500 pounds(almost 227 kg),he was definitely one force of nature.
Shaq:same height as Wilt, but add 22 kg to the weight(total of 147 kg),he was a domination center and almost anyone feared the powah of Shaq.
Dennis Rodman:Only 1,98 m,and 100 kg,but the guy was a living mountain.He is arguably the best rebounder of the new era,and could bench 465 pounds(211 kg),also Phil Jackson,who coached both Shaq,Rodman and many other great players,said that Rodman was the most physically strongest player that he had coached.
Ben Wallace:No strongman list would be complete without Big Ben.Standing only at 2,06 m(reported to have been even smaller,2,01 m)and 109 kg,he is one of the best defensive centers ever.In 2004 finals,he made Shaq's life under the rim,a living nightmare,despite being very undersized,both in height and weight.Also IMO,he is the main reason the Pistons got their title that year.
I probably may have forgot someone,but these are who I think were the strongest.

I remember reading somewhere that Phil Jackson was comparing Jordan with someone he had coached at a time(maybe Kobe?),and said Jordan was physically and mentally stronger than that person.

Lebron, Artest(not that Handsome Devil World Peace) and MJ are strong for their positions

2. Wilt Chamberlain
3. Lebron James
4. Dennis Rodman
5. Charles Barkley.
I completely agree.
I don't want to sound like a [expletive deleted], but I seriously doubt that Wilt would be able to bench 500lbs. His arms are too long to be able to lift that much weight; a normal rep. for somebody like Wilt would be like 2-3 reps for you or me. He's only 125kgs, which is heavy in the scheme of things, but not massively heavy for somebody as big as Wilt. If an absolute prime Shaq maxed out at about 450lbs, I really couldn't see Wilt reaching anything above 400lbs.
