LeBron James is arguably one of the best players in NBA history and his list of favourite footballers was equally formidable. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are widely regarded as two of the best football players of all time. Cristiano Ronaldo made his name in England with Manchester United before taking the world by storm at Real Madrid. Ronaldo now plays for Serie A club Juventus.
His long-time rival Lionel Messi has been with Barcelona for all his career and even at 32, manages to dazzle fans with his abilities on the pitch. PSG duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are two of the most exciting footballers today. With the duo at Paris, PSG comfortably dominate Ligue 1 and are on course to winning the title for the seventh time in eight years. The last name on LeBron's list was Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in world football.
