Is Carson Wentz getting an early jump on recruiting LeBron James to the 76ers?


Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz, two members of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, are in Cleveland tonight to watch the Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors face off in Game 4 of the 2018 NBA Finals.

The guys have some free time since OTAs ended yesterday on Thursday, June 7 and the first minicamp practice isn’t until next Tuesday, June 12.

It’s unclear if Wentz and Ertz just decided to go on their own or if they were invited to the Cavs’ home court. Considering LeBron James said Wentz is his most favorite NFL player to watch, I wouldn’t entirely rule it out.

I’d also like to think Wentz and Ertz might be taking this opportunity to do a little recruiting pitch to bring LeBron, who will be a free agent starting in July, to the 76ers. LeBron’s season could be over pretty soon anyway since the Cavs are down 3-0 in this series.

The Eagles winning the Super Bowl and the 76ers landing LeBron in the same year would be pretty freaking insane. It’s at least possible, and that’s really cool.

I’d also like to take this time to remind you that the Wentz-Ertz bromance is very real ... on and off the field. Wentz has continued to throw to Ertz a ton in practice. And now here they are hanging out at a big game. Total bros.

UPDATE: Oh baby.
