It Looks Like Kyrie Irving Could Be An Insanely Good Wide Receiver
We often think about which NBA players may also have the potential to be pro football players, and vice versa.
This is obviously when LeBron James comes into mind. As we know, LeBron was a great high school football player, good enough to be an All-State player in his sophomore year. He even got recruited by Urban Meyer, who at that time, was the wide receivers coach at Notre Dame. Then, during the 2011 NBA lockout James actually trained to be an NFL player, and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones even had a contract ready for LeBron to sign.
Turns out LeBron’s long-year teammate Kyrie Irving also isn’t too bad on the football field. Kyrie now made some waves after footage of the point guard running football routes surfaced. He looked quite impressive doing it to say the least.
