Layups: Odds of LBJ Becoming the Top Twitter Athlete

Posted by Neil Paine on June 15, 2010

Somehow, LeBron James isn't on Twitter yet (seriously, how did that happen?), but his initiation into the Twitterverse has to be coming any day now. That's why SBR Forum has posted odds on King James' Twittering future:

"Currently, the top Twitter athlete is Shaq with over 2.9 million followers. The moment James actively decides to tweet, we anticipate his follower list to grow at unprecedented levels. The long wait of him finally becoming seemingly accessible will make his Twitter debut impressive. "

SBR guesses that James not only will get on Twitter in 2010,  but that he’ll become the top athlete on Twitter by Sept 1, 2010. Or at least they give him a 67% chance (1 to 2 odds). Would you take that bet?
