Best Answer

"Who is the fastest player in the NBA?" Is perhaps the a misleading question to ask because fastest to me implies straight line speed which isn't as important in Basketball as quickness (which entails acceleration and the ability to change directions quickly).

Derrick Rose stands out to me as the quickest player with the ball in his hands.

Rajon Rondo stands out to me as the quickest player without the ball in his hands.

And Russell Westbrook seems to have the best combination of straight line and quickness.
