As rumors swirl about the next destination for NFL free agent quarterback Peyton Manning, Miami Heat star Lebron James has decided to woo Peyton with his words.
After the Heat beat the Hawks last night, James made his plea to Peyton to come play in Miami:
“I’m just sayin’,” LeBron said. “Dolphins need a quarterback, and Peyton’s available.”UPDATE: Here is the video of the interview:
Later, I asked LeBron if he was trying to recruit Manning to Miami.
“Oh, you guys heard me?” he said with a smile. “I gave my pitch, my one and only pitch. We’ll see what happens.”
Are the two superstars friends?
“No, not a friend of mine,” LeBron said. “But I’m a Miami Heat player, and I want Miami sports to be great: The U, the Dolphins, the Marlins, the Heat, of course.”
