What position? Wide receivers are generally over 6'0". Running backs generally weigh at least 220 pounds. He certainly isn't playing on defense unless he's a safety or CB. The thing is, could AI have made the move from QB to S or CB?

you guys are assuming he will still be 165 pounds. basketball is a running game. Thats why he is so damn light.

if he were to play football, he prpobably would bulk up to around 200.

AI has small bones. I don't think he'd be able to get to 200 pounds. Maybe 180-185.

I found 5'10" not 5'7" but thats just semantics. However every year before the draft one of the things big-time NFL scouts always nitpick with quarterbacks is their size.

E.g. Troy Smith - he won the Heisman and led the #1 team in the country, but got picked in later rounds because of his size (among other things)

I guess Lebron didn't get that memo.

I think he'd have been a good safety or cornerback. If he put on some pounds he may have been able to be a running back

CB would be the most sensible. with his athletic ability he had the potential to be a lock down defender imo

At least a few of us agree he wouldve made a decent safety or corner.

How tall is Randy Moss?

If you could make a football team out of NBA players, who'd be on that team???

D-Wade at running back

Lebron James and Matt Barnes at wide reciever

Ben Wallace and Craig Smith as defensive ends

Earl Boykins returning kicks

Baron Davis and Nate Robinson in the defensive backfield

Glenn Davis could be a linebacker. Tractor Traylor?

Julius Peppers was on the basketball team in college.

Big Baby is waaaaaay to big and slow to be a linebacker. At 6'9" and almost 300 lbs he's not wide enough for the O-line but maybe suitable somewhere on the defensive line... maybe a nose tackle??

from what i've read he was also a CB in highschool. i cant see him playing any other position if he had gone to a good college and the NFL.

its like Bill Simmons said, A.I. would've been a star in any sport. tennis, boxing, track and field, baseball, etc.

one of the greatest pure athletes of the last 30 years. he's 32 and he's just now having to hire trainers and get on weight lifting programs like he does now. as horrible as it sounds, he didnt have to do heavy conditioning in his 20s.

whats ironic is that he's famous in Denver for being a gym rat now. first one to practice, lifts weights everyday, etc.

Big Baby lost a bit of weight.

He looks slimmer in a celtics uni, compared to his LSU days.
