The NBA Draft Combine is where rising NBA players showcase their physicality, athleticism, and mental to improve their draft stock. However, not performing to standards could ruin a player's reputation/stock.

In the 2007 NBA Draft Combine, Kevin Durant couldn't bench-press 185 pounds, which didn't affect his stock since he was still picked second in the draft. For players that are guaranteed to be selected high in the draft, the NBA Draft Combine isn't even necessary. For example, Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, and Josh Jackson skipped the Combine but still were the Top 5 picks.
