Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is undoubtedly one of the greatest players in NBA history. His exact place in the all-time rankings is up for debate, but his achievements speak for themselves.
But he cared about more than just basketball, he also built a business empire, advocated for social causes, and worked to help the underprivileged.

James was also an outstanding football player while at St. Vincent-St. Louis University. Mary High School is located in Akron, Ohio. He played the wide receiver position and even received recruiting offers from some prominent college football programs.
Although he chose the puck over the gridiron (and many believe he could be a star player in the NFL), he still loves football and sometimes takes to social media to express his opinions on what’s going on in the sport.
The future Hall of Famer expressed his desire to give out his NFL pick of the week before games begin across the league on Sunday morning (h/t The Cold Wire).
You all know I love football. With that being said, I’m thinking of streaming my picks of the week (NFL games) tomorrow before the IG game starts. I did choose Detroit over GB TNF. Anyway, let’s wait and see🤔🤷🏾♂️

James is considered a loyal fan of the Cleveland Browns, whose team posted a 2-1 record despite a catastrophic injury to star running back Nick Chubb. They will take on Lamar Jackson’s Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and it will be interesting to see who James selects in that game, especially since Cleveland ranks first in points scored and total yards.
