Re: Fastest Ninja Alive ?
As we've seen in the Manga, Rock Lee can only open like 4-6 gates. Typically, we've seen that many skilled Ninjas can use the gates, even Kakashi despite not using them. Rock Lee has no Ninjutsu or Genjutsu, so when it comes to raw power, he must rely on those gates while Kakashi can rely on jutsus, sharingan, etc.

Also, despite Kakashi's greatness, there are still ninjas revered above him. Among them was the 4th Hokage who was hailed for his blinding speed and his teleportation jutsu. The 4th was far greater the Kakashi and was even said to be a ninja of a lifetime, his power was unrivaled. Though he is dead, I'm sure if he was able to use the gates, he'd be even faster then Kakashi.
That said, with the skill to open the gates, if your faster then Lee, then you can beat him in speed. So easily, I would vote Kakashi as the fastest ninja alive. Sasuke would be the second fastest after.
We know for a fact Kakashi can open the gates himself. It was stated when Rock Lee first used the gates against Gaara. Knowing Kakashi's skill, determination and concentration, he can probably open all 8 just like Gai Sensei.
The Raikage on the other hand seems to be brute strength and speed so I doubt he can't even open a single gate despite his excellent control of chakra.
