  • NBA players would dominate skill position In the NFL.

    Am I crazy to think that NBA players would be the best receivers and corners in the NFL if they switched sports?

    Ooo God lets not start this. When I heard Koby and Lebron talking about this **** I wanted to smack them. They may have the leaping ability but can then run routes, Juke people out their shoes or make one handed catches. I really dont think they could. Maybe jump ball recivers but I doubt they can do what Steve Smith, Fitz, and CJ etc. can do. I would love for them to play in a game and get Ryan Clark'ed or Ray Lewis'ed . That would be funny

      Yes. They'd be awesome in practice then get rocked on Sunday when someone like Dawkins / Lewis / Harrison bears down on them.

        I'd pay to see that.

          Imagine LeBron at tight end.

          I would love to see his 40 time.

          6'8 275 tight end would be sick

            Sure they could. This isnt something that would happen immediately. It takes time to learn to run good routes, but that is something that comes with hard work & practice not physical ability. The sheer size, speed, & athletic ability that basketball players possess is second fiddle to almost nothing.

            And do you really think they couldnt pull juke moves? Thats basically a cross over. I think with the quickness and athleticism they have juking people wouldnt be all that tough at all.

            Really it all comes down to how willing they would be to take hits. But lets be honest, their are plenty of big time WR that don't go over the middle and rarely if ever put themselves in a position to get laid out.

              maybe some of them but come on how many freaks have been busts in the nfl. Just because there fast and big does not mean they can play football. And a crossover in not a juke. They both involve quickness but the ability to hit the open field and find ways to make running run is a special thing

                Its not all about atlethics
                its alot about understanding the game.
                They prolly could pull it off, but id doubt theyd all dominate.
                If it was just about athletics guys like Vernon Davis would be the best TE in the game

                    Football isn't won with measurables. Let's just clear that right now.
                    It's fun to imagine the possibilities but its a pretty empty topic since it will never happen. We can talk about it all we want but the fact is no one is right or wrong and you will never be right or wrong.

                      Lebron James could be a good NFL player IMO. The rest, i'm not so sure.

                        I def. see Lebron starring...Dwight Howard as well, might have to work on the legs a little, though.

                          Anyone catch that thing a few weeks ago on I think ESPNNews.....it was like a roundtable and the question was "better nfl player, lebron or Kobe?"

                          There were 4 guys debating and 3 of the 4 said Kobe would be a better NFL player.....I was shocked, couldn't believe these guys actually got paid to talk sports.

                              Vernon Davis are the only two words that really need to be said. Vernon Davis has every bit of the run and jump ability of a LeBron, but that alone doesn`t make him a star, even though this is a guy who basically dedicates his life to football.
