Dwyane Wade Hits LeBron James With a Touchdown Pass (Video)
If LeBron James had decided to stick with football and ditch basketball, there is little doubt that his athleticism would have landed him on an NFL roster. But what position would he play?
At 6’8″, 250-pounds, his size makes him a suitable option at defensive end or tight end, but I think most would argue that his talent and speed are best utilized on the outside as a wide receiver.
He demonstrated his ability to get down the field quickly and make the big play on several occasions this summer during a flag football match against Kevin Durant. And last night, he put his receiving skills on display once again, this time on the basketball court.
Following a jump-ball midway through the third quarter, Dwayne Wade corralled the rock and immediately threw a touchdown pass the length of the court to LeBron James, who finished off the play with an easy alley-0op.

Now try to picture that unfolding on the football field. It’s almost like watching a bigger, taller Calvin Johnson out there.
