While answering fans’ questions on Twitter Friday night, basketball superstar LeBron James said that he would like to play in one NFL game. Here’s the tweet and response:

He actually played football all four years that he attended high school at St. Vincent-St. Mary in Akron, Ohio as well as played basketball.

James was recruited by the Notre Dame wide receivers coach Urban Meyer while in high school, reports the Bleacher Report — and Meyer said James had the potential to be a hall of fame football player.

So will James pull a Jordan and swap sports? Not likely anytime soon, but it would be pretty interesting to watch the King on the gridiron.
