    Chris Johnson is fast, but he's not Usain Bolt fast. That guy would make Chris Johnson look slow....which is really saying something.

    Bolt will destroy him. Come on, he can't be serious.

    Bolt is on another level. I would like to see him run a 40, it would be insane.

    He wasn't talking about a 100m race... but I remember CJ saying something asking how much money he could raise one his twitter a while back when this al started. I hope they could do it and raise some cash for a good cause. It could be a better race than we all think if they would ever agree on a length.

    Here's how the race would go.

    The gun fires, both guys take off - and in the last third of the race, whoever is losing would pull up lame so they aren't "embarrassed" by the loss. Guaranteed it would go down like that.

    Houston, again.
    Bolt would smoke him in anything over 60 yards. Less than that, probably fairly competitive. CJ would need to spend a fair amount of time getting his start down, because you know Bolt has his nailed and it could be embarrassing for CJ if he couldn't get out of the blocks well. He probably ran out of blocks in college, but it's been awhile and this would be at a whole different level of competition.

    CJ couldn't break 10 seconds in the 100. Bolt would smoke him by 5+ meters without even trying.

    Yeah, CJ is VERY fast, but Bolt is that much faster than him. Unbelievable speed. CJ is faster than Rondo though.
