Lebron James to the NFL makes too much sense

I originally got the idea for this from something Colin Cowherd said.


He makes some good points. Michael retired, Phil retired. Then I saw something:

And it r e a l l y made me think. Michael retired in the middle of his career to go pursue his dream of being an MLB baseball player. It’s no secret the entire world believes Lebron has a real future in the NFL.

He LOVES football and misses playing since his days in high school.

He’s 6’8″ 265 lbs. That is about the most perfect body a tight end could have. I bet you, football abilities or not, that if Lebron decided to take a year off and pursue a career in the NFL he’d receive a call from all 32 teams within the first 5 minutes of his decision.

Cowherd makes some really excellent points. He’s right. Everyone is always worried about the next job right away. They rarely take time to really think about what the best move for them is. The Lakers are too young, Philly would be great on paper but end in disaster, the Warriors would be a sell-out and San Antonio would be a long-shot with the Rockets and Warriors both in the same conference.

Lebron has made enough money for 4 lifetimes and he could care less about that. He’s focusing on his brand. Lebron football cleats? They look pretty sick, remember when Ohio State wore them?

Kinda nasty.

One year can make all the difference. Colin said it. Let’s see if the Lakers and Sixers continue to grow, if the Spurs and Kawhi Leonard can continue to build. There are plenty of pieces out there and moves to be made. But, it’s all about timing and right now, is just not the right time for his next move in the NBA.

Take his talents to the NFL. Don’t make the wrong move and “damage” his reputation of losing ANOTHER Finals. I put damage in quotations because it’s a bunch of BS and it’s just haters being haters. Seven consecutive NBA Finals appearances? Astounding.

Jerry Jones would eat this up. It makes too much sense. Lebron to the NFL is a work of art.

Why Lonzo Ball is the most underrated player in the NBA

Read this and you’ll see why Lonzo Ball is one of the top young players in the NBA. If you’re already disgusted with that first sentence I encourage you to read the rest because I will do my best to change your mind.

Here’s what is wrong with all this criticism on Lonzo. It’s all based on the dislike for his family brand name, and his loudmouth father.

Since Lonzo has entered the league, everyone likes to compare him to Lebron and his rookie year. They like to say when James first came up he was tearing teams up. Scoring at will, defending like an animal, etc. Well, what I’m about to show you will prove to you why Lonzo should not be scrutinized anymore at the expense of his father .

In his first season, Lonzo is averaging 10.1 ppg. Lebron averaged 20.9. I know that’s not great but I had to get the bad out of the way first to blow your mind with his other stats. First off, I know this is average, but it makes sense. Lonzo isn’t a scorer. His game isn’t centered around scoring the way James’ is. Second, Lonzo has also only played 36 games as compared to James 79 his rookie year. Expect Lonzo’s numbers to only get better.

Now here’s where it gets good. Lonzo is averaging 7.1 assists and 7.1 rebounds per game. Lebron averaged 5.9 rebounds and 5.5 assists. Both of Lonzo’s rebounds and assist stats rank within the top three among all rookies. The only rookie better at both, is clear cut ROY favorite Ben Simmons.

In their first seasons, Lebron averaged 3.5 turnovers per game. Lonzo’s averaging 2.7.

Lonzo’s Player efficiency is 16.3. James’ was 18.8.

I looked back and saw that had Lonzo been a rookie in ‘03-’04 with that same number PER, he’d have been third in the league among all rookies. Only behind the second best player of all time Lebron James, and future hall of famer Carmelo Anthony.

He would have been before guys like Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Kirk Hinrich.

If you’re still not convinced I’ll leave you with one last stat. Lonzo’s defensive efficiency ranks in the top 15 amongst ALL players in the NBA.

Lebron’s rookie year? Didn’t even crack the top 50 list.

Now, I am not telling you all of this to try and prove Lonzo is a better player than Lebron. I am just showing you that Lonzo is held to a much higher standard and put under a lot more pressure because of his father. Everything he does is looked at under a microscope, but don’t tell me for a second that he sucks because you don’t like his father’s loud mouth.

Shooting and learning to score is the easiest thing to correct in a players game. In fact, most players continue to improve their ability to score as their careers continue. Give the kid some time and he’ll be turning some heads no doubt about it.

Colin Cowherd said it best. Lonzo is dealing with a very different type of pressure than Lebron did. Lebron had hype. Because of his father, Lonzo has negativity. Lebron had to overcome the expectations of being the next greatest, Lonzo deals with people’s hatred for him and his family.

They want him to fail. Wanting someone to fail at all costs and not living up to the hype are two very different things.


Did I just predict the future?

If I remember correctly, I pretty much called it the night before the Cavs went rogue and traded everyone away. After that Timberwolves game, I wrote how it was the turning point for them.

37 points, 10 boards and 15 assists from Bron Bron that night was the changing of the tide in Cleveland.

A new wave of sports, where one player is so dominant he acts as not only the best player, but the Head Coach and GM as well.

There was no way he would let them suck for a second longer. He took matters into his own hands and did what he had to do. And look.

Three straight wins? Averaging a triple double? Any of this ring a bell?

Well it should, because I freaking wrote about it three days ago.

Shoutout to me for predicting the future.

Now, let’s get back to the Cleveland Lebroniers.

They look real good. They are finally using that team the way they needed to. After GM James went and traded away every person on that team, he finally got the system that suits the style of play he wants to run as the new Head Coach.

Tyronn Lue might as well be on a beach in the Bahamas right now, because there’s no coaching going on by him anymore.

Against the Hawks, Lebron finished with 22 pts, 12 rebs, and 19 (NINETEEN) assists. Oh, and did I forget to mention he had only 3 turnovers? Shoot, my bad. Guess I forgot about that.

Against the number one ranked Celtics he had 24 pts, 8 rebs and 10 assists. I know, how terrible right? No triple double? Did I forget to mention he only played 28 minutes? My bad again. I have a terrible memory, what can I say?

These new additions make the Cavs younger. I had a feeling that’s what Lebron needed. He is a 33 year-old in, a 22 year-olds body. He is the definition of a true professional. He puts his head down and he works his you-know-what off.

You’re probably thinking, what do you mean he puts his head down, he’s always in the media? Well, when you’re the second greatest basketball player of all-time, and considered one of the greatest athletes to ever play a sport, it’s hard to hide your face from the camera.

This post-trades Cavs team looks different, and feels different. There were two many egos on that old team, and as far as I’m concerned, Isaiah Thomas was at the center of it. He was abysmal in that locker room. You don’t go into the same locker room as Lebron James and say, “I’m the best player on this team,” because you’re not. You . just . don’t . do . that. (insert sassy lady clapping in between each word). Even if you’re fresh off a career year.

I.T., my man, in case you didn’t know, the Celtics traded you right after said “career year”. For who? Oh that’s right. Kyrie Irving.

Watching the Cavs play the Celtics the other night was Fun. For the first time all year, it looked like Lebron was enjoying being around his teammates. He was joking with the young guys, he was smiling, laughing. It was good to watch. These new look Cavs have the potential to be a one seed in the East now.

With nearly a triple-double a night from Lebron, and good role guys to keep feeding him, the Cavs could have what it takes to compete in a seven game series with any team.

Except the Warriors. They’re just unfair.

The King Has Officially Taken Over

Before I start, I would just like to say that I wrote this at midnight last night after I watched the Cavs-Timberwolves duke it out, and I didn’t finish until around 3:30 in the morning.

So without further ado…

Ladies and Gentlemen, please gather around. What you are about to witness will be hard to fathom, but the truth, is the truth.

LeBron James is about to bring Cleveland so far out of the dumps, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Browns won the Super Bowl next year.

First, I hear Lebron gets in this huge exchange with two Cavs Execs where voices were raised and fists were thrown. Well, no, not really, but could you imagine? That first part’s true, unfortunately no fists were thrown.

My reaction to this whole situation? I am currently standing at my microwave, poppin’ some popcorn, getting ready to watch my soon to be favorite new show:

The King Has Taken Over.

As far as I’m concerned, Lebron is the acting Head Coach, President and GM of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Whatever he says, goes. He’s the new Sherriff in town. If he wants bagels in the locker room on Monday’s, there better be a hot ‘n fresh stack of New York Bagels with a nice spread of different flavored shmeers waiting right there at his chair every Monday morning.

The King, is the King for a reason. He gets what he wants, when he wants it. And he wants to win. After watching last nights game against the T-wolves, I’m convinced his loud mouth has got this team back on track.

138-136 Timberwolves up by two.

Lebron lays it in off the glass with 24.0 seconds left in OT. Shot clock turned off. Tie game.

138-138 Timberwolves Ball with Jimmy Butler driving. Lebron swats it in his face with 2.3 seconds left.

Timeout. 1.3 seconds left. Cavs Ball.

138-138 Cavaliers to inbound.

Lebron sinks game winner over Butler. 0.0.

Cavs win 140-138. He flipped the switch right on National Television.

This man, or whatever he is, played 48 minutes tonight. Let that sink in first, people. This man is thirty-three years old. He finished with 37 points. 15 Rebounds. And 10 assists. He shot 16-22 from the field, a soft seventy-three percent for the night, and was 5-7 from downtown, a sorry seventy-one percent.

Just your average night for a King.

Let me just point out that he is currently 13 years older than Lonzo Ball. Congrats on the kid,  I see your recovery is going splendid. And is playing the length of an entire NBA game, a week and a half before the freaking All-Star Break.

Lebron just took Cleveland out of the ground, picked that entire city up, put them on his back, and is currently carrying them towards the promised land.

People, I just want you to know, in case you hadn’t heard, human beings don’t do stuff like this. This is special. This is really fun to watch. Now, don’t get me wrong, he’s going to use these next two weeks and recover the hell out of his body after a night like tonight, so expect the shirtless Instagram stories that’ll make you want to propel yourself at a concrete wall. But I promise you, come second half, mark my words, he will go on and absolute TEAR in the NBA. Fear. The. King.

He’s already averaging a pretty 26.3 points, 8.0 rebounds and 8.6 assists per game. But that’s nothing compared to what this second half is going to look like. Absolutely disgusting numbers are about to be put up post All-Star break. I really wouldn’t be surprised if he averages a triple double.

This was a statement game for him. He just ripped his jersey right down the middle, screamed as loud as he could, and said, I got this. He told everybody in Cleveland, you let me run your franchise, from top to bottom, and we’re going to win another NBA Championship.

The King has officially taken over.

Obviously he can’t do it for that long by himself, but that is what tonight was for. He told everybody in that locker room,

I am the captain now.

He looked right at Isaiah Thomas and said, you work for me now.

I did not expect him to trade him away the next day, but damn I am pretty much a fortune teller.

With Kevin Love out of the picture, this team can finally mesh the way they should have been all along.

Expect to see a very angry Lebron James this second half of the season. He is about to rampage through the NBA like a bat outta hell, all the way to the NBA finals.

At the end of the day, I guess it doesn’t really matter though, because the Golden State Warriors still exist, and they’re pretty much going to win. Not without a historic NBA finals performance, by the one and only, the King.
