Scott Pendlebury, for the pure fact that he got a scholarship to the AIS for basketball as a teenager.

Pendles.

Jack Watts was also quite good back in the day, but he's not a midfielder. I saw him play and he could shoot the lights out.

Paddy Ryder who is pretty athletic and has clean hands for a big man. I'm pretty sure i read an article a long time ago where he said he could dunk from the free throw line as well.. Or i could be making it up.

Pendles can play. Urban legend has it that Port Melbourne's Jason Williams once dropped 30 on Brandon Knight in an exhibition game

That's what Michael Jordan did so it wouldn't be true.

Would be Jack Watts, pretty sure he represented Australia at under 16 level.

Lol at the title could have just said basketball instead of NBA.

Jack Watts would be a pretty good netball player tbh. I saw Luke Hodge nail a three at half time of a Boomers game in Melbourne a couple years back so I'll give him the nod.

Watts was an extremely good basketballer as a junior.
