Second, I'm pretty sure that Lebron is the best athlete in the world...by that I mean that if he had taken up any sport, he would have dominated. I mean, he's the only reason I ever watch the NBA.

Ask yourself this question: "I am going to be playing a sport...I don't know what sport it is, but I get the pick of any athlete in the world to be on my team. Who should I pick?" You would be an idiot to not pick the 6'8, 240 pound guy with 4.3 speed and good enough hand eye coordination to be the best basketball player in the world.
He's actually closer to 6'9, 270
