LeBron James on Cam: “He’s a rare, rare talent.”
One of the NBA's most polarizing figures talks about the polarizing figure in Charlotte, Cam Newton.
CHARLOTTE, NC (WCCB Charlotte) — LeBron has a message for Cam Newton.
“I’m not a power forward. I’m not a power forward. And I’m not slowing down anytime soon,” James said.
James who ‘absolutely’ is a fan of Cam Newton responded to Cam’s comments at media day. The Panthers quarterback was asked if he’s the LeBron James of the NFL. His response:
“Why can’t he be the Cam Newton of power forwards.”
Newton has developed a relationship with many NBA stars including James. Newton embraced LeBron James earlier this season when the Hornets faced the Cavaliers at Time Warner Cable Arena. James says that watching Cam Newton play is like watching a one-of-a-kind quarterback.
“I think he’s a rare, rare talent. Obviously, his size and speed is rarity at that position,” James said.
“His height as well, not many guys that are 6’4” and playing the quarterback position so that’s why combined with his IQ, speed and power and the great guys surrounding him, it makes him very tough.”
