Was Lebron James a Dallas Cowboy?

That is what and many other sources are suggesting. Most of us know that in 2003 Lebron James came straight out of high school and entered the NBA Draft. With the Cleveland Cavaliers holding the first overall pick, they selected the Ohio native. After playing in the league for seven seasons, the Cavs forward considered switching sports. Here’s why.

Back in 2011, the NBA was going through its fourth lockout in league history. James was getting bored with just sitting around with nothing to do. There were no sports to play. After eight months of no NBA activity, Lebron considered other options besides the NBA.

The Switch is Football

Lebron was considering playing in the NFL, and the team he was dreaming of playing for was the Dallas Cowboys. It’s no secret that it’s his favorite team. He comes down to Texas to support America’s team. But back during the lockout of 2011, Jerry Jones did give King James a contract. Many people believe that he would be good as either a tight end or a wide receiver. The problem is we don’t know what his 40-yard dash time is, so it’s hard to judge what position he could play. One thing for sure is that it is hanging in his home in Los Angeles, California.
