D. Wade to LeBron: TOUCHDOWN!

My VOA colleague Keith Wallace reminded me today that two-time National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player LeBron James of the Miami Heat was an all-state wide receiver in high school football.  Check out this catch and score from LeBron after a wonderful full court pass from Miami teammate Dwyane Wade.

The D. Wade to LeBron pass was the Play of the Night February 15 in Miami’s 110-103 victory over the Indiana Pacers. Talking about it after the game, LeBron referenced two of the stars on the Green Bay Packers, who recently won the 45th Super Bowl of American-style professional football: “I didn’t know what to do. The ball just hung up there,” said LeBron. “It felt like an Aaron Rodgers-to-Greg Jennings pass.”

Do you think LeBron James could catch a pass from Aaron Rodgers or another National Football League quarterback and play in the NFL?  Some sports analysts have wondered if LeBron would be successful on the gridiron.  With his size, speed and hands, I think the big basketball star would attract interest from more than a few NFL clubs if he ever decided to switch sports.
