LeBron seems to think that he would make an amazing football player. You know, because of high school.
“If I wasn’t playing basketball, I believe I could try out for an NFL team and make it as a receiver,” James said. “What I’m doing right now will keep my mind off of playing football, but if something ever turned sour in the NBA, I think I’d take a shot at the NFL.”
Sure. LeBron got beat to the basket and dunked on by a Chinese kid a few months ago, for fuck’s sake (see previous post for video).
Not a Chinese kid:
These quotes were taken from LeBron’s third season in the NBA when there was little to no chance of anything turning sour with the NBA (because of LeBron’s awesomeness, mostly). Now that next season is in serious jeopardy (and LeBron isn’t so awesome), he may have the chance to right the biggest wrong in his life and his ONLY regret:
“The only thing I regret in my life is not playing football my senior year”
How could he pass up such an amazing opportunity?
UPDATE: The lockout is over. LeBron won’t get his chance to play wide receiver in the NFL. Dang.
