James’ record 40-yard dash time is official, now that it has gotten the Wikipedia treatment. His 4.1 second jog is the fastest time recorded at the NFL Draft Combine since 1999, the first year of electronic timing.

Those are some fast guys he beat out, too.

    James? Lebron James? James Dean? Edward James Olmos? Who? Maybe I missed a previous story, but a graph about a “James” having fastest 40 yd dash? More info in this story, please.

    James ran a 4.1. And I was a passenger on the Millinium Falcon when she made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. smh.

    4. Parsecs are a unit of distance, not time. The distance from the sun to the earth = 1 parsec. You’re welcome.

    Umm, the comment about the parsecs is from Star Wars. The original poster knows it’s a distance measure, the Star Wars writers didn’t. Is that clear now, Mr F’n Know Nothing?

    Not bad for a guy that’s 42 years old. What was he running back in the day????? I bet he benches 800 pounds, too.
    That call was worth the price of admission this morning.

    As I was saying the distance from the earth to the sun is an astronomical unit. A parsec is roughly 3.258 light years. Look it up if you want to know how it’s calculated. My head hurts… I think it was from me running the 40 until I was able to smash that 4.1 with my 3.89 on my third attempt. James kiss that record goodbye, slowpoke.

    WGY944 I know what you do in your spare time, and it’s not pretty.

    I am going to tag this for next time KSR gets pumped up and posts about a high school player running a 4.30.
    If its posted by a player on his facebook or twitter, it isn’t gospel!

    Someone should have told Solo( and George Lucas) that info. Yet it remains a classic line.
    Fantastic job with wiki page. James. Just…James. Hilarious.

    2 Fan Theories on Solo’s line:

    1) He’s boasting about cutting corners/skirting planets or black holes and so he actually made the run in a shorter distance than most people have to. Shortcuts, basically.

    2) Solo was testing the backworld bumpkins to see if they knew anything. When they didn’t catch it, he knew he could rip them off.

    I see a race between him and Lemond at a remote.

    James’ accomplishment as a professional, no, “semi-professional” pool player perked my ears. His 4.1 40 grabbed my undivided attention, as I was driving and listening but his ability to run a blinding 4.3 at 42 years old took the entire cake!!

    He has to come to a live show and do a 40, not that kind of 40 though.

    So i think James was confused he ran the 40 foot dash in 4.1

    I have played in 4.1K pool tournaments against the best, and I was able to outrun all of them, at any position on the field, because my quickness reaction to the reaction of quickness was quicker than the opponent in th 8 ball tournament for touchdowns.
