do you honestly need to lift to be a NBA player or a good one? do you have to be a bigger dude to be in the NBA? can you not be able to lift at all but still make it to the NBA ?
players like Steve Nash was not the strongest in the NBA and only could bench about 152 he still made it and is considers a legend yeah he was not really known for his spectacular dunks like some people but he is still a legend some. LeBron James is the strongest current player with a bench max is 225 and he can do 15 reps. the strongest historic player was wilt Chamberlain who could bench 500 pounds with a 55 vertical. so really if you wanna be known for moving people down in the paint or at all you need strength if not u better be ready to shoot from the outside…i mean in less you can do both
