After being a part of the franchise that brought the city of Philadelphia it's first championship since the 2008 Phillies, quarterback Carson Wentz is looking to bolster his city's basketball team.
Wentz revealed that he has begun recruiting free agent Lebron James to the 76ers.
"I hope he's coming," Wentz said. "Ertz and I were there the other night. I know he lost, but I didn't care who won in that game. Just seeing that and seeing him live, we decided to make it a recruiting trip. We did not get a chance to talk to him, but hopefully, he knows we were there."
Apparently, Wentz believes that his mere presence at a game in which LeBron and his team were finished off in the NBA Finals is good enough to land one of the greatest players in basketball history. There's a good chance that the young star will have to work a bit harder to persuade James to Philly, which hasn't won an NBA Championship in 35 years.
The prospect of having LeBron James, Ben Simmons, and Joel Embiid as the Philadelphia big three is certainly enticing. Just those three could make the 76ers favorites over the Boston Celtics, who took LeBron's Cavaliers to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals while missing their two best players - Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving.
Everything right now is pure speculation, but if James does end up in Philadelphia for next season, Mr. Wentz may have some bragging to do.
