We started to add more sled into our to our agenda... We started to add a little bit more in our bench presses. "After the game, both teams were meeting in the back". And team owner Jerry Jones seemed on board with that idea.
Therefore, despite the fact that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had offered King James an National Football League contract - James still has that contract framed in his office to this day - there was never a real threat for James to leave the NBA.
James admitted that he thought about making the move, but ultimately declined, deciding to hang the contract offer up in his office. What position would he have played?
When asked if James could have blocked him off the edge as a tight end, former Cowboys Pro Bowler DeMarcus Ware told NFL Network he didn't like the National Basketball Association great's chances. And in 2011 the Cowboys already had a pair of great tight ends in Jason Witten and Martellus Bennett.
David Wilson and Anthony Chiang, the Miami Heat beat writer for the Miami Herald, each picks a side and debates who is the greatest National Basketball Association player of all time on the newest episode of the Heat Check podcast.
