In a brief but entertaining social media campaign, Steelers WR Ju Ju Smith-Schuster made a plea to LeBron James aka King James to consider playing in the NFL for the Steelers.
LeBron was serious about football before becoming the biggest NBA star on the planet.
Announcing my official campaign to recruit @KingJames to the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 2018 season. LeBron has done everything in the NBA. He can be the best athlete EVER if he makes the move to the NFL and wins a Super Bowl with Steeler Nation... #LeBronToPittsburgh pic.twitter.com/5VLcjIPpSO— JuJu Smith-Schuster (@TeamJuJu) March 6, 2018
He went on FS1's 'Undisputed' to talk about his campaign... sporting a "King James" 23 Steeler Jersey...
James was a standout football player on the Ohio prep scene before picking basketball full time. Ohio State was ready to give him a football scholarship.
James gently killed Ju Ju's dreams of ever wearing a Steeler jersey earlier today...
"Naw, I'm fine with my sport that I’ve got," said James, via ESPN's Dave McMenamin. "It's pretty funny, though. I saw some of the (headlines) that they had me in a Steelers uniform. I like tank tops and shorts. I’ve tried the shoulder pads and it was fun while it lasted. But I'm a tank top and shorts guy."
