Matching Every Top NBA Star with His NFL Counterpart

Are you ready for some football? And basketball? 

I don't think Hank Williams Jr. ever sang it that way, but the questions still stand. 

With the NFL season kicking off and basketball fans around the world starting to hold their breath in anticipation of the upcoming 2013-14 season, it's only natural that we start comparing the NBA's top stars to their professional football doppelgängers. 

These aren't based on looks. Well, with one notable exception. 

Instead, the comparisons are centered around playing styles, places within their respective sports and perception. There's no such thing as a perfect doppelgänger, though, so please feel free to leave your own comparisons in the comment section. 

I hope you're ready.
