    Not necessarily true. A few of the nominees are Euros or biracial. Chuck Hayes and Roy Hibbert each got one vote. I think if you define "natural ability" to be athleticism/vertical leap, Zach Randolph deserves some votes. He is an Allstar and probably can't out-jump me.

    Except Kevin Love's draft measurements were better than "athletic freak" Anthony Randolph

    Not really messed up if its true. Don't lie and tell me Kevin Love and Matt Bonner are athletic freaks.

    On hyper-sensitive Clutchfans, this may be one of the few threads where you can say this and not be quoted 30 times with enraged reactions.

    Kevin Love actually has a lot of natural ability for his size.

    LOL Kevin Love is 6'10" putting him well into the 99% height percentile. If that's not natural ability I don't know what is. He also seems reasonably quick for his size, this makes no sense.

    Marc Gasol is well in the 7 foot range...

    IMO someone like Nate Robinson should win this, he clearly was not built to be an NBA player yet made it happen and has put up good numbers. If your as tall as Gasol and Love its almost embarrassing NOT to be playing basketball at a high level.

    Kevin Love has really been working on his natural athleticism all off-season.

    I know you're joking, but Jeremy is actually very athletic. Hence, him not appearing on this list.
