At the same age? LeBron

also, Ben Simmons


current Wiggins is also at least 25lbs lighter than LeBron at that age. If you consider quickness/vert relative to size, it's LeBron by a large amount.

I assume you mean peak Lebron, because as of now, it's Wiggins by a mile.

Assuming peak Lebron, it's close, but edge to Lebron.

peak for peak its hard to take anyone over lebron considering all aspects of athleticism. dude was fast as f*ck, strong as sh*t, & could jump like hell. he also had a pretty damn decent first step.

As high school seniors, LeBron had the edge in everything besides maybe the vertical. I think wiggins had an inch or two max vertical on LeBron (but this neck and neck, I just feel Wiggins has more bounce in his step but he's also a lot lighter than a high school LeBron). Everything else, LeBron was better at from high school phenomenons to 20 years old.

There's a bunch (not a lot) of guys who could match or exceed peak Lebron in those areas. But those guys weren't 6'8.

Rewatch tape of the Lebron in his younger days, he actually had a very good first step for someone his size.

Lebron was almost as quick and explosive but also a lot stronger at the same time.

i would way wiggins... Lebron is unusually athletic for a guy his size but wiggins probably could out leap Lebron at the same age.

LeBron. Wiggins can Jump higher and might be quicKer but LeBron had so much more muscle on him and was barely any worse in vertical or quickness
