LeBron James wants the world to know that he is faster than Manti Te'o. Earlier tonight, some Heat players were watching highlights of the 2013 NFL Combine when someone asked King James what his 40-yard dash time is. And, he responded by saying that, although he's never trained for the 40, he still managed to clock in at 4.6 seconds while he was working out last summer:

And, shortly after revealing his 40 time, LeBron also took a jab at Te'o, who only managed to run the 40 in a pedestrian 4.82 seconds at the Combine yesterday:

Damn. Sounds like the Notre Dame linebacker just added another L to his growing collection.
