Greg Hardy says he could beat LeBron James one on one in basketball.
Fresh off signing his $13 million tender with the Carolina Panthers, defensive end Greg Hardy apparently said that he could beat LeBron James on one on in a game of basketball, according to a tweet from ESPNNFL.

While you can tell from watching him play football that Hardy possesses incredible athleticism, I would have to say this comment contains a little bit of hyperbole.
At 6 foot 4, 290 pounds, Hardy is a specimen. But let us not forget that King James stands 6 foot 8 and weighs upward of 250 pounds.
Either way, I’d pay to see it. Before the game someone should remind Hardy that he is not allowed to sack LeBron on the court.
