The NBA is filled with men who possess freakish athletic ability, and LeBron James just may be the most athletic of all of them. With his size, speed, and touch, James is one of the greatest athletes in all of America. In high school he was an All-State wide receiver, and this has prompted many prognosticators to wonder if King James could be effective int he NFL.
Legendary quarterback, Joe Theismann, said earlier in the year that LeBron could be a great NFL quarterback, and now Dallas Cowboy wide receiver, Dez Bryant, echoes Theismann’s statements that LBJ could dominate in the NFL.
Speaking to ESPN Dallas, he said it would only take LeBron a couple weeks to get his footwork down to play in the NFL, and thinks he’d be a “beat in the red zone.”
"That dude is just that talented," said Bryant, who is coming off a breakout season of 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns. "I think it would take him probably about a good two weeks to get very acquainted with football, knowing what he's supposed to do. I think that's all he'd need with his physical ability.
"All he'd need to do is probably work on a little technique," Bryant said. "It's not like he's never played football before. He has played football. I think he'd be a beast in the red zone. I think he could do it. I think he could do it, seriously."
