Saying you ran the 40 faster than Manti Te’o isn’t really something to be proud of. Some of the offensive lineman at the combine ran faster than Te’o, even Rich Eisen wasn’t far off the mark (by the way, the 40 is heavily overrated way to measure if someone is fast in football speed) We have to remember than Te’o was under stress and didn’t have a lot of sleep and that was the reason for his poor combine performance.  I guess Te’o believes no other player at the NFL Combine was under stress as well, considering millions of dollars are at stake depending on your performance, but I digress. The King was asked about his 40 time and had some interesting insight on his training and how his time compares to Te’o. NFL Combine again the pregame entertainment in the Heat locker room. Asked his 40 time, LeBron said he rana 4.6 in training last summer. — Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) February 26, 2013 LeBron on his 4.6 40 that he pointed out was without training, “It’s better than Manti Te’o, I’ll tell you that.” — Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) February 26, 2013
