LeBron James laughs off recruiting pitch from Pittsburgh Steelers

NBA superstar LeBron James laughed off a recruiting pitch from the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers by saying: "I’m a tank top and shorts guy."

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James laughed off attempts from Pittsburgh Steelers players to get him to swap the NBA for the NFL.

Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and running back Le'Veon Bell have been lobbying for James to join Pittsburgh via social media since last month.

The 14-time All-Star is expected to test the free-agent market this offseason, but a change of sports does not appear to be on the cards.

"No, I'm fine. I'm fine with my sport I've got," James said when asked if there was interest.

"It's pretty funny, though. I've seen some of the edits that they had of me in the Steelers uniform, but I like tank tops and shorts, I'm sorry.

"I've tried the shoulder pads, and it was fun while it lasted, but I'm a tank top and shorts guy."

James played wide receiver for St Vincent-St Mary High School in Akron, Ohio, and was even recruited by some Division I programs, including Notre Dame.

Still, his potential search for a new team will be limited to the NBA.
