Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella isn’t afraid to speak his mind, even when talking about players in a different sport.
On Thursday, he issued a challenge to Cleveland Cavaliers superstar forward LeBron James.
James is a huge football fan, played the sport in high school and has been compared to NFL tight ends. He’s one of the most athletic players in any sport with a unique blend of incredible strength and impressive speed.
Hockey is a bit different in that it requires its own unique skill: skating. It’s certainly possible, though, that James could be a good hockey player if he mastered skating.
It would be interesting to find out, that’s for sure.
