LeBron James is undoubtedly one of the best players in NBA history. His talent is undeniable, not only as a basketball player but as an overall athlete. He was not only a five-star basketball recruit, but he was also a very good football player that could end up playing in the NFL. Now James made sure we all knew how good he was by reposting a video of his high school highlights as a football player.

The truth is that he helped his St. Vincent–St. Mary's football team as wide receiver. At the conclusion of his sophomore year, he was named first team all-state, and as a junior, he helped lead the Fighting Irish to the state semifinals. He didn't play in his senior year because of a wrist injury. Still, he was recruited by some Division I programs, including Notre Dame.

LeBron James' talent as a football player might still be up to debate. There have been reports that during his career, NFL teams have tried to recruit him to play for them. Just a few weeks ago, during the CrawsOver league, Seattle Seahawks offered him a place on their roster. It could be more like  joke, but that goes to show us the talent LeBron James has.


During an episode of “After Party,” via Uninterrupted, LeBron James revealed his love for football.  "I have dreams all the time about playing football. It’s crazy, because I actually never run on the field in my dreams. It always gets to the point where I’m either in the locker room or getting dressed or talking about it. As soon as I’m about to run on the field, something happens in my dream.”

LeBron James future

We know that LeBron James doesn't have too much gas left. He will retire once he gets to play with his son. There's also a rumor that says he wants to own an NBA team and that could also happen. But it would be amazing if he signed a one-day contract with an NFL team to play once as a football player.
