Default Who is the fastest player in the NBA with and without the ball?

I remember Jeremy Lin having a faster 25 yd time than John Wall, but slightly lower top speed at the combine. Is Lin still fast?
This the type of competition they should have all-star weekend, like the NHL.

Wall, Lawson, Rondo, Parker, Ellis, Lin, James, Rose, etc...... who is your top 5 with and without the ball?

Baseline to baseline I know Devin Harris established a Guinness world record for fastest. It was done during all star weekend in 09 or 2010.

With the ball it's John Wall EASILY for me.
Without the ball is tougher.

All-time is easy

DENNIS RODMAN had springs in his step. Even at age 35, this guy was so quick off to the other ends with those long hop steps he took. & his lateral sideways movements both sides was quickest I've ever seen. unbelievable. a reason why he is the GOAT defensive player ever.

his body never age.

At present, I dunnno.

Norris Cole has to be up there even though he looks out of control half the time.
