I am sure this list leaves out people from days past, but I can understand why.

I am putting this out there for debate.

NBA Power Rankings: The 20 Speediest Players in NBA History

Wade is considered #1 in history. No way.

I think the fastest player in the NBA right now is Aaron Brooks , especially with the ball in his hands.

Well, if we're going by measured times, the fastest guys are ... Nate Robinson and Sonny Weems.

Young Iverson is the fastest I've personally ever seen. So much of his game was based on quickness that you just knew that whenever father time hit, his game would suffer big-time.

The list is a joke. The fastest guy in recent years was Mugsy Bogues------HANDS DOWN !!!! How about Spud Webb? Nate was also up there as of recently.

Maybe Tyreke Evans should be included on the list - 130 MPH is faster than anyone else on this list.

I guess no one really watched Wade except for his highlight reels because he deserves the top spot. It takes 3 people to stop him sometimes.
