If sports figures made up the cabinet
Author:

AS PRESIDENT-ELECT Donald Trump fills out his administration, sports figures are being nominated (Linda McMahon, a cofounder of WWE, for the Small Business Administration) or considered (longtime MLB manager Bobby Valentine, reportedly, for ambassador to Japan). Here's what an all-sports cabinet might look like.

Secretary of State

LeBron James

America's biggest star has influence around the globe and a track record of bringing people together for a common goal.

Secretary of the Treasury

Clayton Kershaw

Dodgers ace (far left) knows high finance ($215M contract) and how to be stingy (2.37 career ERA).

Secretary of Defense

Roger Goodell

NFL commissioner runs profitable and powerful league of (field) generals; skilled at strategy and parrying attacks.

Secretary of Labor

Alex Morgan

Fast-growing sport of soccer will create plenty of jobs, and USWNT star is appropriately goal-oriented.

Secretary of Energy

Serena Williams

Perhaps the 22-time Grand Slam champion (left) could turn her epic stamina into a renewable resource.
