Does he have the physical talent to do it? Yes. I just don't think he'd want to take the hits that go with it. They talked about how "physical" the Bulls were being with him the other night on the broadcast (that's probably the most NBA I've watched in 5+ years), and that was foreplay compared to what he'd probably get in the NFL.
I think the Bulls defense backing off Lebron and letting him score bothered him as much as the Bulls' physical play.
