I am not convinced that LeBron James could play football in the NFL right now because:

  • He hasn’t played competitive football in almost a decade.
  • Us NBA bros underestimate the NFL’s across-the-board athleticism.
  • The NFL is a very specialized game with a learning curve that is insanely steep even for professional players.
  • A bunch of other reasons.

That being said, if you make him in to a Madden character and play with him, he’s awesome.┬áJust check him out up there — playing running back, catching passes, having comically huge shoulders. Just totally dominating, like the best possible version of Keith Jackson in Tecmo Super Bowl.

Now let’s see how he’d do as a volleyball player. Someone find a copy of Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball and we’ll patch him in.
