TJ Oshie wants in on what could be an epic shootout between two of the greatest athletes in sports history.
During a LeBron James Q/A on Twitter Monday, Tom Brady asked the four-time NBA champion who would win in a five-round ice hockey shootout.
You and me, 5 rounds, ice hockey shootout, who wins? https://t.co/Xe0h0ZKngS

James voted himself, but admitted he’d probably not be able to skate during his attempts.
me but barely. May be swinging from my knees though. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Within hours, Oshie piped in to try and make the challenge happen in real life.

So far Oshie’s tweet has nearly 8,000 likes but has not received a response from the superstar quarterback or small forward.
Per NHL Stats, Oshie has the fourth-most shootout goals in NHL history (47) and is a career 49 percent shooter — tops amongst players who have scored 30 shootout goals or more all time. And oh yeah, he also single-handedly beat the Russians in the shootout during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, earning a shoutout from then-President Obama. So if 77 got involved, my money would be on him unless the pucks were deflated or something.
