View Full Version : Which NBA player could bench press the heaviest weight?

I was having this debate with a friend of mine.
I remember reading somewhere that Ben Wallace could bench well into the 400+ pound area, so he would get my vote. but a buddy of mine says that it would be Shaq because of his ridiculous size and natural strength.
who else would be in the mix if this were simply a contest of lifting the heaviest weight?

Hm that's interesting, i read Shaq could bench 450lbs and i know Ben Wallace is a gym freak and i also heard Earl Boykins is not to be messed with when it comes to the bench press.

What was it, he couldn't bench 135 predraft? I wonder what he's up to now.

Haha with the Durant call. He's pathetically weak (from my knowledge) which is why he plays SF.
I believe Big Ben or Shaq could bench press the most. Besides them, perhaps Nene? He's pretty big. DH12 would be up there, he's got massive guns.
I would've said Shaq a few years ago, but he's a big ball of fat now.
I'll go Kendrick Perkins.

I read somewhere that Howard benches around 275.

well long arms tend to make a person a better basketball player but much worse on the bench press. There have been quite a few football players from Tennessee who could bench up into the 550 range.

I can't believe that 275 number. I got up to 245 and I am nowhere near his size
