LeBron James sumo question

Settle a bet for me: imagine LeBron James quits basketball to become a professional sumo wrestler. Assuming he gives it his all, is it safe to say that he becomes champion within five years?

Re: LeBron James sumo question

I think his high center of mass would be a liability, tbh.

Doesn't he live in Ohio? IME he should put on 200 around the middle a year or two into retirement. Dat Old Country Buffet.

Yes, but only if Ditka decides not to compete.

Re: LeBron James sumo question

I remember when Jordan tried sumo after retirement and it was a total embarassment.

Re: LeBron James sumo question

Instead of basketball players transitioning to sumo, id rather see some sumobros try to play ball. How sick would that be to see a yokozuna do a slam dunk?
