I agree that not all who play basketball can make the transition to the NFL....I never said otherwise.
You however said basketball players aren't tough enough to play in the NFL
.....I gave you just 5-6 of those who in fact did (for brevity's sake)...but we can also add in these guys who played college basketball but decided to pursue football for whatever reason (HoF
like Tony Gonzalez will be)
There are many people who played other sports that became NFL players....Dave Winfield was drafted by NBA, MLB, and NFL teams.
