Dan Majerle ran a 4 minute 36 seconds mile as a senior.

Do modern NBA athletes still have that type of go?

Even Kenny Smith was sub 5 minute.

Anyone here run sub 5 minutes? Mookie?

Sub 5 minute mile isn't "special" by any means if you have any running experience I ran a 530 mile as an out of shape 9th grader

I don't think so.. I'm not special or anything. Think most athletic men could run under 5 minutes easily, not in 430 range but 450-500 for sure. Bb players might struggle based on size

You probably ran 15:30, not 5:30.

Let's not ruin his athletic memories from when he was in ninth grade now.

Bunch of fatties here. 

A mile = 4 laps of the track. A reasonably good runner could do it, and I'd absolutely expect a professional athlete to do it.

You do realize that any decent high-school track team could do this right? A pretty quick Google search will agree I'm sure.

I'm limited to 6 min miles. My 12" OG hog swings to violently if I go any faster. Apparently I'm no longer OG athletic

can't count how many people have told me they could run a sub 4.5 40. I think these kids had their dad holding the stop watch.

LOL. I was in pretty damn good shape and I remember during physical conditioning a guy that was a year younger and a standout runner on the track team literally lapped me while we were running the mile.

He was sub 5 minutes and he might as well have been riding a bicycle compared to everyone else.

Good lord.

I hope you are trolling, man.

I was running a LOT in college and once ran a 5:05 minute mile on my best day.
