LeBron challenges Durant to a little football action

We’re not going to see LeBron James ad Kevin Durant square off on the hard court anytime soon, so why not on the gridiron? Stranger things have happened.

Monday night Kevin Durant jumped into a flag football game at Oklahoma State University. If you remember, a month ago LeBron James went out and practiced with his old high school team.

When LeBron heard about KD’s night out Monday he sent this tweet.


He ment “Optimus.” Really. He corrected himself seconds later.

Anyway, it  soon led to a little challenge between the two.


And we might have a game. I’d say it all seems a little ridiculous, except for two things.

First, you can bet there are Nike marketing people figuring the best way to make this work as you read this.

Second, if this lockout drags out much longer I’m going to start rooting for this to happen. Just for the action.

    All-State as a sophmore at St. V. My cousin was the d-line coach there. He told me Bron did things you wouldn’t believe until you saw it on game film the next day. Having watched Desmond in highschool and college, Omar Provitt, Mario Manningham, I have no doubt Bron could’ve played at a high level if he went with football – his stated first love.

    Flag-football is really LeBrons sport? What a stud! What a stud!

    LeBron’s just doing this after seeing all the positive PR Durant got. While Durant just did it for fun and to make some kids happy, LeBron is a self-serving sheep who don’t do anything unless he thinks he’ll be loved for it.

    LeBron, skip over to one of the Florida colleges if you want to be with the people. You don’t need to hop on to Durant’s bandwagon.

      Didn’t Lebron play flag football with a group of people about a month or so ago? Didn’t see much positive PR after that, maybe he just really likes to play?
