That's the record for a football player at the combine... I guarantee you Olympic sprinters can probably break 4.1.
but yea I don't know what those numbers were that guy posted. But I'd be willing to bet Lebron runs a 4.5 or so and Wade like a 4.6. If they played football instead they could probably shave a second or more off those times because they are training their body for it. Basketball will definitely make you explosive, but still it's endurance training as well as there is a lot of constant movement. Football it's just a series of short bursts and that's all.
