For fun if you could switch lives with any pro athlete who would choose and why? You can take into account their team, skill, contract, house that you saw on cribs, smoking wife, or whatever you want. I would pick LeBron with his pending free agency and I'd say he is a decent player too

Okay. So as long as I can still keep my brains (including education) and my family and my friends, I'd exchange lives with Kobe.

But I've always wanted to be a PG,. so maybe Deron Williams (I'll work on my game a little bit more), or Baron Davis (I'll work on my conditioning).

You are sick man....I know that you are being serious. You are an extreme homer. Arenas isnt even a top 50 athlete in America. not even top 100. Jeeez man.


Id pick LeBron. He is filthy rich, everyone knows him everywhere, he could probly kick most peoples *****. he is a BEAST and a freak athletically. And he is young...only 24. Being 24 is badass.

What you are missing here is that I know Gilbert personally, therefore I know his life to some extent. Gil is a cool cat, not a spoiled brat, as LeBron is reported to be. Why would I want to be a spoiled *****? I wouldn't. To each his or her own, though. If that's your thing ...

Oh aight well that explains it... if you know him, that is tyte as hell! But otherwise...come on. But man, LeBron is a cool *** dude. ive seen enough of him to be able to gauge that. Anyone who thinks other wise id have to deem a hater. I mean, he is just a kid...24 or 25 yrs old. Who wouldnt want to be on top of the world at that age...its just a dream ya know

I was seriously considering him. I mean he's a rich *** guy, but he's never bought into the more money thing. He was considered one of the most underpaid players last year and he just willingly took a big pay cut to be in the position he wanted to be in both lifewise and basketballwise. And he is about to win a championship.

In basketball, here are many to choose from. Tim Duncan, but he lives in Texas. Steve Nash, but he is Canadian (lol) and probably won't win a championship. Chris Paul is great and young and a good person in the world as he is vey charitable, but he lives in New Orleans, where you are almost forced to. Dwight Howard is a great pick with his future and personality as well as the fact that he lives in Orlando. Derrick Rose maybe, and perhaps Kevin Durant. Dikembe Mutombo is incredible. Lebrin maybe, but just a little too much publicity and expectations for me.

In all of sports Tiger Woods is tempting though.
