Which NBA players would you like to see in the NFL?
 
You're not allowed to say "LeBron," because everyone already knows that.

But watching Russell Westbrook I see a guy with a lot of suddenness and acceleration, and at 6'3" 190ish, which would likely be a little heavier playing football, I see a guy who looks like he could be a nice wide receiver.

Rudy ***....


i think you guys know who im talking about.

Dirk because it would be funny

Something tells me a football coach could find a way to use Blake Griffin

3-4 OLB/Goal-line TE. Let's start an online petition or something.

I think most NBA players could find somewhere to play in the NFL. What about Dwight Howard as a tight end?

Rajon Rondo at QB. I believe he was a very good high school QB and point guard has some similarities to QB. He also has huge hands, he would never fumble the ball.

Haha... I thought about listing Howard and Griffin along with LeBron as players who would obviously evoke some intriguing football possibilities. I think we're basically conditioned to expect them to be great tight ends - Gonzalez, Gates, Graham...

Yep. Good one. He's got the attitude for it, too. Gonna chew somebody's ass if they're not in the right place when he chucks it.

Aside from the obvious already stated here, I would love to see Chris Paul as a CB.

Lets think out of the box a little bit. How about Nate Robinson as a RB in a similar role to Darren Sproles? He played college football at Washington. Also, I was thinking Big Baby Davis as a Left Tackle.

Mufasa 06-13-2012 02:06 PM

You could say every tall player would make a great redzone threat. So might as well pick the tallest one.



9.5 foot reach, good luck Revis.

Plus he sucks at basketball, so he'd have nothing to lose by switching.

i dont think "most" could find something in the NFL, a lot of bb players would be too weak, too frail, and too skinny/long to play in the NFL. could you imagine KD as a WR? hed get jacked up, hes soooo lanky he would get a knee blown out

i tend to agree that dirk would be hands down the funniest

OSUGiants17 06-13-2012 02:45 PM

Most of them would have terrible football IQs as well and would never be able to handle playing QB, LB or S

Nate Rob played CB at U Dub. I think he could ply there in the NBA. What I really wanna see is D Wade as either a ballhawking FS or as a WR. He would mash at either position, and he's physicl enough to play there IMO.

Ron Artest (in his prime) as a defensive end. 6'7, 260. He's got a frame to get bigger and he could be stout at the POA with quick strong hands to swat away OTs. You know he's at least crazy enough to do it.

Docta 06-13-2012 03:24 PM

Most of them would be good returners. Derrick Rose comes to mind. He could probably be a sick running back too.

Most true PGs would be good QBs. Nash and Rondo would be great.

MidwayMonster31 06-13-2012 04:14 PM

Glen Davis on the Offensive line.

Here's another defensive end for ya.

This kinda makes me want to start another one of those drafts where we make an expansion football team out of just other sports athletes, rookies, ect. Would any of y'all be down? There would of course be limits on how many rookies, nba players, ect. that you could take.

Hell yeah i'm in!

Dwight Howard would pretty much be an unstoppable short yardage/red zone receiver. Nobody could outjump him or outposition him.
