They say some people are born with a silver spoon in their mouths, and it’s true. Take any trust fund baby and you’ll see a platinum Tiffany spoon carefully placed in their mouths being held by the nanny or butler. However, there are also kids born with golden genetics, and it has nothing to do with their faces or their perfect bone structure. It’s all about their bodies and the freakish things they are able to do with them.
Think about LeBron James or Kevin Durant. Think about Calvin Johnson. These genetic freaks are born with the perfect height and weight combination, pros that go beyond to become something more — entertainers, a show all to themselves. Their DNA has been custom tailored for them to be top flight athletes. Their quick twitch muscles are faster than email, they are completely unaware of their own strength, and it just proves that sometimes life isn’t fair. You can work all you want. Do push-ups until you can’t lift your arms. Run until you’re ready to throw up. Study film until your eyes hurt. None of it will matter. Could you ever catch Prime Time? Nope. Could you ever jump with Jordan? No way. These cats are untouchable. True legends. Real-life transformers.
With the NFL in full swing and the NBA just around the bend — the two leagues that are probably littered with the most incredible all-around athletes in sports today — are the most physically gifted athletes in sports today and don’t be surprised if one day in the future these athletes are discovered to be Transformers, Decepticons, Superheroes or Mutants. Here is Calvin Johnson and the All-Transformer Team.
