Not sure if this has been posted. Are these stats accurate? ( Lebron's speed and vertical ect..)  If so the kid made good points to me, I always thought he could do well in the NFL.

If i'm late delete NT is always way ahead of me anyway

Never seen a 6'8 guy run a 40 with that kind of athleticism but i would expect it to be much faster than 4.92 for LeBron...

Lebron is straight line fast. he has no wiggle
his hips are extremely tight and stiff

when was the 1st and last time u have ever seen Lebron shake a defender? seriously?

in the NFL u rarely run in a straight line fpor more than 10 yards.

when was the last time a player 6'9 had some success in the NFL?
its a low mans game. and 6'9 is a lot of area to hit or jam

Lebron would find little success in the NFL

Heard he was on the All team in Ohio, he would be very good, i'm almost sure of that

eye-hand coordination and good hands.

Im pretty sure he has both, no mo.

He'd be a good route runner with the ability to go up for the ball. But probably wouldn't have the ground work/shakes to be considered a "star"

I know a lot of people on here are always gassing up their 40s, but there's NO WAY Bron runs a 4.9.

He was an All-State WR his Sophomore year of HS and helped lead the team to the state finals, and i'm pretty sure he was recruited to play football by some colleges.

Couldn't the NFL have a lockout in the same season as the NBA does though?

He was, it was by the best colleges in the nation at the time too.
Ohio St. Miami and i think even USC. Those are the ones i can remember but there were many more colleges recruiting him that were as big as those colleges i just named.
Lebron can catch the ball, but it would take some getting used to getting hit in the process. NBA is a wussy league, and it's made him one himself.
