People have discussed whether Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James could succeed in the NFL, possibly at tight end for the hometown Cleveland Browns.

However, whether he'd succeed at baseball or not has yet to be discussed.

On Thursday, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon jokingly commented that James could play center field for the Cubs any time.

Maddon's remark came in response to James wearing a full Cubs uniform to his game against the Chicago Bulls on Dec. 2, the result of his Cleveland Indians falling to Dwyane Wade's Cubs in the 2016 World Series:

James's debt to Wade is now paid and it seems likely that we've seen the last of LeBron in a Cubs uniform.

Yes, Maddon was joking about the offer, but who wouldn't want to see James tracking down some fly balls and attempting to throw out some base runners?

It's too bad the NBA season is still in full swing during MLB's spring training, otherwise Maddon's joke could become reality, at least for a day.
