Jamaal Charles: "Sometimes I feel like I'm the LeBron of football, because I can do so much."— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) August 1, 2015
You can understand why some athletes talk themselves up. Being adored and admired by many has eventually gotta go to your head, right? Let's take Jamaal Charles for example. We aren't denying that Charles is an outstanding running back, but is he on par with LeBron James when it comes to being a superstar?

"Sometimes I feel like I'm the LeBron of football because I can do so much."
Hmmm. Like, he knows LeBron is really, really good and wins things, right? That's a big call considering he is yet to reach a Super Bowl let alone winning a championship. But still, can't hate on a man who's confident.
