Is there anything King James can’t do?!

During a new interview with The Athletic, LeBron James revealed he considered joining the NFL during the NBA lockout in 2011 – nearly a decade after he graduated from high school.

James said he had invitations from the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks to try out and insists, “I would have made the team.” He added, I just know what I’m capable of doing on the football field. Especially at that age.”

Obviously, his NBA career turned out just fine. But, could you picture LeBron playing in the NFL?

What other well-known athletes could have or should have tried out for a different pro sport than they play?
