Here's What LeBron James' Rookie Card Would Look Like If He Played for the Dolphins

LeBron James is apparently so bored during the lockout that he's having fun hinting at an NFL career. Of course, the fact that LeBron isn't playing basketball right now has created a LeBron-sized news hole, and apparently we're all just going to run with these NFL fantasies. In fact, trading card maker Panini has released a mock up of what a LeBron James' rookie card would look like if he decided to sign with the Dolphins.

Panini imagines what the cards would look like based on their 2011 Absolute Memorabilia and 2011 Certified lines:

Conveniently, no one on the Dolphins is wearing the number six right now. Of course that's a quarterback number, but we're not entirely sure anyone on the Dolphins is an actual quarterback right now either.
