NBA+NFL

I'm assuming that LeBron will be the first person that comes to mind regarding this question, but what NBA players, do you think could make a living in the NFL, AND what NFL players (if any, lol) could make a living in the NBA..Antonio Gates? Tony G?

hey sorry bud

But nate didnt play rb in college so what makes u think he would rb in the pros???? he was a rb in HS where he could dominate but using his athletic abilities.....but in college he played Defensive back and still wasnt good enough for the nfl.....in the nfl to be a running back u need size something nate doesnt have....i know u say oh well look at all the small guys in the nfl that are doing well at rb, but they have better vision and weigh about 20-25 lbs more......so if anything in the pros it would have to be DB

I think Randy Moss would've been a decent shooting guard in the NBA. As for NBA-NFL, I agree with Nate as a RB, and maybe Glen Davis as a Left Tackle.

There's a huge percentage of the NBA players that could play in the NFL, and other pro sports. Really I think the list of guys that could possibly play is too long to name. On the reverse, you guys already named Randy Moss and Antonio. A few players that come to mind are Tony Gonzalez, Terrell Owens, Jevon Kearse, Jared Allen. I heard Joe Montana was a great bball player actually.

like the prodigy pointed

like the prodigy pointed out, Barnes led the state of california in touchdowns his senior year and was a 5 star recruit. He said during the first couple years in the nba, if he ever didn't get a contract, he would switch to the nfl.

He is too short to play QB in the NFL. Playing in the the NFL pretty difficult.

Jason Maxiel could be a great tight end and could have gotten drafted in the NFL had he not gotten drafted by the nba.

I think Kyle Lowry would

I think Kyle Lowry would make a good RB and so would Ben Gordon.

I also think Rajon Rondo would be a great WR or CB.

Aaron Brooks and Monta Ellis would be great WR's and kick returners.

Shannon Brown would make a good free safety.

nfl and nba

DeJuan Blair and Paul Millsap could make a hell of guards... Derrick Rose could be a great running back... Jason Kidd and Deron Williams would be solid QB's... Nate Rob's role in HS was cornerback... But him being an RB would be great...

Robert Gallery is the John Bryant of football...
