JuJu Smith-Schuster lost it after LeBron James dapped him up, like we all would

“LeBron just touched my hand, bro!”

JuJu Smith-Schuster loves LeBron James so much, he’s doing what he can to recruit him to the Steelers, even going to LeBron’s job. Smith-Schuster sat next to the Cavaliers bench during their game against the Clippers, but before the game, he greeted the team as they were running out of the tunnel. As James ran by, he dapped up Smith-Schuster, and JuJu could not handle it.

Smith-Schuster’s campaign to get LeBron to the Steelers started seemingly last month, but it picked up steam this week, with him tweeting at James to message him, tweeting graphics that have him in Steelers gear, and even making James in Madden NFL, placing him at wide receiver, the same position he played in high school.

James was well aware of what Smith-Schuster’s been doing, but in an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, he politely declined switching sports:

“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.”

So even though LeBron won’t make the jump to football anytime soon, that hasn’t stopped the two from linking up after the Cavs-Clippers game.

This should be interesting.
