LeBron James is one of the greatest athletes of all time, but it doesn't look like he'll be taking his talents to the golf course anytime soon.

A viral video emerged showing the Los Angeles Lakers star at TopGolf taking an unimpressive practice swing with a club that might not have been suited for him:

Someone get <a href="https://twitter.com/KingJames?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@KingJames</a> some longer clubs 😂<br><br>(via _Shelbyjones/IG) <a href="https://t.co/WqcFzBSjyI">pic.twitter.com/WqcFzBSjyI</a>

With a swing like that, the 37-year-old is likely to stick to the basketball court. He also played football in high school, and he would've been a matchup nightmare at 6'8", 265 pounds had he stuck with it.

James is entering his 20th season in the NBA. The 18-time All-Star is hoping to help lead the Lakers to another NBA championship, which would be the fifth of his already legendary career.
