    Is Gabe Freeman, the MOST ATHLETIC IMPORT of All Time?

    How would he fare against, let's say..

    A prime Bobby Parks, Norman Black or even Derrick Hamilton?

    Can he do these things against an also athletic Chris Porter?

    Nate Johnson, an SMB import as well deseves a credit here also, equally athletic as Freeman.

    What i like about Gabe is his on-court emotions. Intimidating!

  3. #3
    he can!

    hahahaha.

    masipag eh.

    despite his lack of ceiling, he compensates it with his heart, determintaion, passion and intensity.

    and his energy is contagious.

    ano po ba ang basis at catergories pag sinabing most athletic?
    scoring numbers? rebounds per game? etc.

    If we're talking about pure athletic ability(hops, speed, quickness, overall agility), then gabe would be up there. he's far from being the best, but athletically speaking, he'll rank pretty high.

    Parks is light years better than freeman but i'd give gabe the slight edge in athletic ability. freeman again gets the nods athletically over norman black but black's bball iq is nowhere near the same galaxy as freeman. mr.100% is also stronger than freeman and is the much better defensive player.

    I'd probably say tony harris is the most athletic import we've had. he's lighting quick, can jump out of the gym and never seems to tire out. his 100pt performance wass also due to his insane athletic ability that went with his immense bball skills.

    yes ,agree ako dito ..luffeett ni Tony Harris kaya nga sia tinawag na Hurricane..sa bilis at lakas din nia..kahit double team kaya nia malusutan ,ito ang player na parang mas gusto doon lagi dumadaan sa pagitan ng mga bumabantay sa kanya..ewan ko paano nia nalulusutan lagi

    kaya siguro bilib si Ilonah Jean non ..heheheh

    If pure athleticism lang ang pag uusapan then Ginebra's David Noel should top the list. I can't recall any import or make that any professional basketball player who has the ability to do a front cartwheel then do a back flip then dunk the ball.

    Sure, doing flips maybe easy for short people but for a those standing 6ft and upwards.. that's just amazing.

    So much buzz about that Tony Harris. Sorry but I do not know him. What team did he play for? For me, Freeman is. Idol ko eh.

  11. #11
    comparing him to harris & parks? lets not get too carried away here. from the 80s alone i can name lots more athletic imports than freeman aside from the 2 i mentioned.

    dexter shouse
    willie bland
    winston crite
    jose slaughter
    sylvester gray
    jervis cole
    billie ray bates
    donnie ray koonce
    darren queenan
    rob rose (unfortunate that this guy never had much exposure in the pba but he tore up the australian league)
    harold keeling
    michael holton
    dwayne mclain
    walker russell
    terrance bailey
    jeff collins

    Wes Matthews is also athletic and prolific as well same with Carlos Briggs who loves to attack the basket despite his height and terrific from long range.

    I think he is not the most athletic

    Perhaps the most hardworking & the most intense import of all time

    I forgot Al Green from Crispa team.
