Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, JuJu Smith-Schuster, is trying get LeBron James to join the NFL.

As you may know, LeBron James has been the face of the NBA for the last decade and then some, and is highly regarded as the greatest athlete in the world currently, maybe ever.

When you’re 6’8”, weigh 250 pounds, and have the combination of athleticism and strength James has, you would dominate in just about any sport.

LeBron played both football and basketball in high school, but as you know, he chose basketball as a priority, but that hasn’t stopped pro football players from recruiting his talents to say….Pittsburgh.

According to Complex, JuJu took to Twitter to begin his recruitment and I have to say, it looks pretty legit.

Now we all know this is ridiculously farfetched but Smith-Schuster has a point here. He very well could be regarded as the greatest athlete ever if he made the transition and helped a team win a Super Bowl.

I don’t think we will ever know because LeBron is playing the best basketball of his career at the ripe age of 33, but I wouldn’t completely count it out.

I do have to say, if he decided to dabble in professional football, I doubt it would be for the Cleveland Browns’ rival Pittsburgh Steelers, sorry JuJu.

Do you think that LeBron James would be successful in the NFL? What position would he play?
