You have to love athletes that are unabashedly themselves, and ​Jets safety Jamal Adams certainly doesn't shy away from his confident personality.


While talking about the newest addition to New York's roster, running back Le'Veon BellAdams compared himself to LeBron James, citing how his recruiting skills helped bring Bell to East Rutherford this offseason. 

Comparing himself to James, who famously, or perhaps infamously, created the Big Three of himself, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat, is a bold move from Adams. 


Still, the 23-year-old safety had a successful offseason of recruitment, more-so than James with the Lakers. It's pretty hilarious to see Adams making such an intrepid comparison between himself and one of the greatest NBA players of all time. 


While Adams has the nickname of The President, James' still reigns supreme, being labelled around NBA circles as The King. 


If only the LSU product could only have convinced Anthony Barr to sign with the Jets and not return to the Vikings. Then, Adams may have truly earned his self-proclaimed title. 

Adams has helped the Jets put together what looks to be a much more promising squad for 2019, one that includes promising free agent additions like Bell and C.J. Mosley alongside budding young players like quarterback Sam Darnold.


However, if the team can't win a championship like LeBron's teams have done in the NBA, the safety will have to work a little bit harder as a recruiter until we can consider him even close to the status of King James.
