dream world

A quick thought, though one that many people have had: Can you imagine what American soccer would look like if the country’s best athletes chose soccer as their first sport? I’m imagining a world in which LeBron is a brick wall of a goalkeeper, Gronk the most terrifying centerback in the world, Chris Paul a wily deep-lying playmaker, Odell Beckham Jr. on the wing, Kyrie Irving threatening defenders with his pace and power…. But that way madness lies. Best to turn my thoughts elsewhere.

  1. Reform pay-to-play. Soccer can’t be exclusively a middle-class sport. USSF needs to invest it’s lucrative Nike/TV/etc. deals in developing inner city leagues and coaches.
