LeBron James isn’t just a basketball expert, he’s also demonstrated his knowledge of football. While he’s never played in the NFL, that hasn’t stopped him from predicting winners for upcoming games. Recently, he revealed that he’s done some research through EA Madden before sharing his picks on Instagram. In preparation for the Cleveland Browns’ game, he’s been studying up on their opponents for the week.

LeBron James recently posted a simulated game between the Cleveland Browns and the Indianapolis Colts on his Instagram story. Being from Akron, Ohio, just south of Cleveland, it’s unclear which team he’ll root for. NBA players Lonnie Walker IV and Talen Horton-Tucker spoke about which NBA players could make a successful transition to the NFL. Both players agreed that LeBron James and Zion Williamson have the necessary athleticism and physicality to excel in football. Horton-Tucker believed that James would make an excellent tight end, while Williamson could be a dominant defensive end. Meanwhile, Walker IV praised James for his versatility and suggested that Williamson would be too difficult to contain due to his strength. It’s easy to see why James and Williamson were chosen as potential NFL stars by NBA players.
