Default knee question

didnt know where to put this but this seems right. I was wondering if there was any affect on athletic ability based off the shape of the knee. meaning knock kneed, or bow legged. I figure most peoples knees favor one direction or the other, but I was wonder out of curiosity if one or the other lead to advantages or dissadvantages in strength sports, or sports in general. anyone with any thoughts, or any of you coaches like Gregg, or Glenn have any insite on this sort of thing?

Of course there is disadvantages to non-normal knees...

How to quantify that.. that's problematic to do, heh.
