    Makes you wonder what would happen if someone who can actually play basketball at the highest level would do in the NFL. My guess is that you could put LeBron James on the field at the start of the 2014 season and he would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 1500+ yards receiving and 20+ touchdowns for the year. And the stats would only get better after that.
    I've always thought of this too. Imagine Lebron in the red zone?? 6"8, 250 with speed and a crazy vert. Scary thought.

    I hate when people judge a TE only by their receiving ability. If you just need a guy that can receive the ball, why not get a WR? TEs are and always will be half receiver, half offensive lineman.

    Graham is a great receiver and presents matchup issues for any team, but he is a liability in the blocking game. He's a glorified WR.
    Welcome to 2013.

    A shot to the ribs would change all of that.

    NBA players aren't used to that kind of abuse.

    Neither are mediocre college basketball players. That's the point. LeBron would dominate in the NFL.

    Put him at DE or 3-4 OLB on passing situations

    More to the point he has the physical ability to dominate in the NFL.

    No one knows if he has the mindset to dominate in the NFL, it's a completely different mindset, totally different mentality.

    NBA players take more abuse from other NBA players than NFL players. He's hit by 250 pound players in the ribs all night. Without pads. Without a break every 10 seconds. While running nonstop.

    Football isn't any tougher than basketball.

    They dont really but Labron makes so much more in international advertizing then anyone. He will likely make like 60 mil without his base salary this year. I'd be shocked if Peyton made half that.
