With the NBA lockout raging on (sound familiar?), Miami Heat superstar LeBron James jokingly hinted at signing as an NFL free agent on Tuesday, when he tweeted ESPN’s John Clayton about the league’s free agent deadline and minimum salary.
Although it was (assumed to be) a tongue-in-cheek gesture, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll went a step beyond, and took to Twitter Wednesday to offer Bron Bron an open invitation to the Seattle’s roster in the form of a custom made jersey. Check it out above.
While James is known to be a bit of a jokester, it wouldn’t be the first time we see a player cross-over in sports; Michael Jordan and Bo Jackson come to mind immediately. And with LeBron out of a job, the possibility — although extremely faint — of him donning shoulder pads and the like becomes that much more tangible.
However, it’ll ultimately remain a pipe dream as James will stick to the hardwood, even if his season is truncated — or lost altogether.
