It's too bad for the Browns that LeBron James wasn't running their front office back in April, because if the National Basketball Association star had been in charge, there's a good chance that the team's quarterback right now would be Deshaun Watson, and not the current combination of DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan that has led them to an 0-9 start.
Last month, LeBron James admitted he had some thoughts on the Cleveland Browns that he wasn't prepared to divulge.
During an interview on Monday, James said that the Browns should have definitely drafted Watson to be their quarterback of the future. "Deshaun Watson should have been our quarterback". "That doesn't mean that Myles Garrett is not going to be a great football player". Doesn't mean you're sh-ing on the next guy. "It's just that you're stating what you see". Sure, you would prefer the best athlete on the planet not say that another player should be the quarterback instead of you. After selecting Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick, the Browns had the opportunity to select Watson with the No. 12 pick they owned from the Philadelphia Eagles. After making the no-brainer pick in Myles Garrett, they made a decision to trade that No. 12 pick to Houston, which ultimately drafted Watson, who balled out this season until he tore his ACL in practice. Kizer (0-8) has started eight games this season and he still has fewer wins than Manziel, who went 2-6 during his eight starts in his short Cleveland career.
In an attempt to clear up comments made Saturday regarding National Basketball Association rookie point guards, LeBron James stepped into the NFL arena and brought the lowly Browns into the conversation.
