While most NBA players are worried as shit about this NBA Lockout – that has already caused the cancellation of preseason games and by Monday (if nothing is settled), regular season games…LEBRON JAMES IS OUT PRACTICING HIS FOOTBALL SKILLS AT HIS FORMER HIGH SCHOOL SCHOOL ST. VINCENT ST. MARY IN AKRON.
Fox 8 Cleveland reports that today Queen James showed up to the place he wishes he still was, and put on the pads, playing wide receiver…
Members of the state’s third ranked Division III team were shocked when two-time NBA MVP LeBron James showed up for practice wearing full pads and took part in the late afternoon session.
“I not gonna lie, it was pretty cool to see him out there,” said starting quarterback Kevin Besser.
James borrowed the equipment and jersey of #13 Clayton Uecker, who did not practice today due to injury. Uecker is also the tallest player on the SVSM roster at 6’5″.
SVSM running back Sae’Von Fitzgerald said James looked just like every other member of the team with a helmet on.
“He wore everything. Shoulder pads, helmet, visor… everything,” said Fitzgerald.
But when it came to tackling, James was off limits.
“Our defensive backs were allowed to jam him at the line of scrimmage,” said Fitzgerald. “But he took no contact after that. Coach [Dan Borman] said we shouldn’t tackle him.”
While James looked like one of the guys, according to Besser, he didn’t play like one.
“He caught everything, he didn’t drop a pass,” the quarterback said. “I probably threw six or seven passes his way and he went up and got everything.”
Besser and Fitzgerald said James practiced with the team for about an hour and since it was a full scale practice with a team vying for a state title, no members of the team shot video or got a picture with the two-time MVP.
“We were worrying about practice,” said Fitgerald. “But it was cool to be out there with him.”
Of course after LeBron saw how EASY it was for him to play wide receiver he thought about trying out for the NFL…
Why not LeBron. Every year you play basketball you just get worst in peoples minds. And think about in football the pressure falls on more than just YOU and 4 guys. It will fall on your QB, O-Line, Kicker, Defense etc…There are 23 other guys that take responsibility. SO JUST GO PLAY FOOTBALL ALREADY YOU BIG PUSSY. And hey if worse comes to worse, go see Renee Richards cock doctor, I’m sure they can tune you up into a LFL player or a women’s volleyball player.
