They are great athletes and great basketball players but I can't see them beeing best tennis players. Best basketball players who would have made it as tennis players ? Give me A medium size point guard who likes to shoot. A Derrick rose, Steve Nash, Ricky Rubio(never mind, he's Spanish).
Same thing with base ball Forget about you batting champs and Cy young winners, get me a shortstop who steals bases and hit .299.
