NFL Legend Deion Sanders Says LeBron James Could Play In The NFL, Not Sure About Kevin Durant: "I Would Say KD But KD's A Little Slim"

LeBron James and Kevin Durant have dominated the NBA over the last decade. The two players have been the most successful players in the last decade. 

The two have won 6 of the last 10 NBA championships in the league. On top of that, they have been part of 10 of the last 11 NBA Finals series. 

Durant and James are the standard-bearers of the NBA, and they have been the defining stars of their era. 

The rivalry between KD and LeBron has been the biggest story in the league this entire time and has been the hallmark of the modern NBA.

The rivalry between the duo has swung back and forth like a pendulum. James had the early advantage, especially during his time with the Miami Heat. 

But the balance of power shifted in KD's favor when he joined the Golden State Warriors and won two NBA championships and James' expense.

But could James and Durant be successful in a different sport? According to NFL legend Deion Sanders, LeBron would do so, but Durant may struggle.

During an interview on ESPN's First Take, Sanders was asked which athlete in the world did he think could be a two-sport athlete like himself. 

Sanders instantly threw LeBron's name in the mix. As for Durant, Sanders noted that he has the talent and size, but maybe a little too slim to handle a heavy-contact sport like football.

"LeBron could do it... I would say KD, but KD's a little slim."

'The King' and 'Slim Reaper' have had an incredible impact on the sport of basketball, and will go down as two of the best to ever take to the hardwood court.

Whether it be their success in the NBA or at the Olympics, James and Durant have done all that there is to do in basketball. But one can only wonder how they would do in another sport.
