LeBron James taking his talents to the NFL sounds far-fetched and, for sure, it is.
But with no NBA season in sight and lots of time on his hands, the Miami Heat star likely had a good time Tuesday hinting at giving the NFL a shot on his Twitter page. James asked ESPN NFL insider John Clayton “When is the deadline for a team to sign a free agent?”
He was apparently having fun with Clayton’s earlier tweet that the NFL trading deadline is next Tuesday.
It’s really much ado about nothing, just a star athlete craving a little attention. Maybe we should have seen this coming last week when James was dressed in full pads at a high school football practice?
James, of course, was a star football player in high school up until his sophomore year in Akron, Ohio, but the NFL is a much different level. Not to mention it's a dangerous sport and one that would definitely put his NBA career in jeopardy when it resumes.
