Lakers superstar LeBron James explains the biggest difference between the NFL and NBA

CBS Sports

LeBron James is just as much a businessman as he is a basketball player.

On the court, he's the centerpiece of the Los Angeles Lakers, one of the NBA's most prestigious brands. Off the court, he's the founder of a public school, a future "Space Jam" star and up-and-coming Hollywood producer.

It's no surprise, then, that he has opinions on what makes two of the world's most popular sports leagues, the NFL and his own NBA, different from each other.

Discussing both brands alongside Ice Cube, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley and other celebrities on his HBO series "The Shop," LeBron pinpointed the biggest contrast of the NFL and NBA as involving the leagues' approach with players.

"The difference between the NBA and the NFL — the NBA is, like, what we believe he can be, what we believe he can be, the potential," James said. "And the NFL, it's like, what can you do for me this Sunday, or this Monday, or this Thursday? And if you ain't it, we movin' on."

Gurley agreed, citing a popular phrase from around the NFL.
