LeBron James to the Dallas Cowboys? Yes, please.

Memo to the Dallas Cowboys: We really aren’t “all thinking the same thing” if thinking the same thing means imagining LeBron James in a Cowboys uniform.

James, who has been a fixture around CowboysLand and JerryWorld, set the Internet on fire last fall when he mused on Twitter that he would like to play in “one NFL game before it’s over.” A four-time MVP in high-school football in Akron, James quit to focus on basketball. Clearly, he hasn’t gotten the game out of his system because he keeps bringing it up.

In February, when speculation that he would opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat was ramping up, he joked about it again.

Meanwhile, James’ decision to opt out of his Miami Heat contract has everyone else dreaming, too.
