Lebron could be a center back or goalie but he is too big for anything else, has there ever been a top rated non goalie player over 6'5"? Carrying around that weight for 90+ minutes of constant running would be difficult. I actually think a speedy baseball player would make for an solid soccer player. Mike Trout would be the ideal size and offer the dexterity plus creative IQ needed to make plays.
