Former NFL receiver, Terrell Owens, made the Pro Bowl 6 times and at his peak was regarded as one of the best receivers in the game.
Unfortunately, he was also more well-known for his theatrics than his athletic feats. Recently on ESPN’s Sports Nation, Owens said he believes he has the talent to play in the NBA, and came to that belief because if Luke Walton is in the league then he could certainly make it.

Well, at this time Luke is not in the league, and while Owens certainly possessed more athleticism than Walton, he’s giving up at least 5 inches. Plus, there is a lot more to it than simply being athletic.
