Is LeBron James looking towards the White House? Apparently, he might be. On a recent episode of Undisputed, Skip Bayless reveals that he shares a mutual friend with James, and he was told that LeBron might actually try to run for president.

Skip explains, “I’m close with a guy who is very close to LeBron. And this guy spent a lot of time with LeBron over All-Star weekend in Chicago. And, as soon as [co-host] Shannon [Sharpe] and I did this topic on Friday, this guy that I’m close to immediately texted me and he said, ‘No no no no, he’s really considering this, and he was way — and it’s got a lot of ‘Y’s’ on the end of ‘way’ — way before Boogie came out with it. And, the guy I know said, ‘It’s a plan of his but not yet a goal.’ But he emphasized he’s really — all caps — considering running for President of the United States.”

Afterward, Skip tweeted out, “I’m open to this and I really could see it happening. I think LeBron would have a chance to not only win, but to do very well.”
