Which sport requires the most skills between basketball and volleyball?

AnswerI personally think that Volleyball requires more explosiveness, vertical, and arm strength. In basketball you are able to take a couple people off the street and put a game together (they will somewhat know what they are doing). Volleyball you cannot do this because Volleyball requires more skill to play the basic game and is a much more mental game than basketball. Also in Volleyball you can't just pass it off to another player on your team if your not good, Volleyball you have to take it if it comes your way. Hope this helped.
