October 19 2013 at 9:56am CST By Zach Links

LeBron james took to Twitter last night for a quick Q&A session with his fans.  According to the transcript from Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel, James is leaving the door open for a stint on the gridiron.  When asked if he would consider playing in one game of pro football at any level, King James responded, “I wanna play one NFL game before it’s over.”  As you daydream about LeBron lining up at tight end, check out the latest from the Southeast Division..

  • In today’s mailbag, Winderman downplays a recent ESPN the Magazine article that claims the relationship between LeBron James and Dwyane Wade isn’t as close as most people believe.  Of course, both men can opt out of their deals following this season.
  • Winderman is also asked if a swap of Rockets center Omer Asik for Chris Bosh is a possibility for the Heat after the thought was mentioned by  ESPN’s David Thorpe.  However, the Heat are highly unlikely to go for a major shakeup before they see how 2013/14’s championship bid shakes out.  Besides, they’ve done alright for themselves without a true center.
  • Garrett Temple won’t start 36 games for the Wizards again, but Washington is extremely happy to have him back in the fold, writes Michael Lee of the Washington Post.  “He’s like a great utility player in baseball,” coach Randy Wittman said of Temple. “I want guys who are very versatile in what they do. It gives you different options in the course of the game, gives you different options when you have injuries.”  The Wizards re-signed Temple to a one-year, guaranteed deal this offseason.
  • Jason Maxiell‘s bruising style of play will help the Magic this season, writes John Denton of Magic.com.  Orlando inked Maxiell this summer after he spent the previous eight seasons in Detroit.
