Tim Tebow Invites LeBron James, Dwight Howard to Play for Broncos

Twitter nearly exploded late Monday when superstars Tim Tebow, LeBron James, and Dwight Howard all became part of the same conversation. When it comes to polarizing athletes in the world, it doesn’t get much bigger than Tebow or LeBron. Dwight’s not as controversial, but he has a strong presence on Twitter with 2.3 million followers.

Things started when Dwight, who is an active tweeter/social media guy, took a picture of himself Tebowing:

He accompanied the picture by saying “This [is] for Tebow lol. Good game boy.”

Tebow, who tweets infrequently, responded “lol appreciate the love Superman!”

Dwight upped the ante after that, telling Tebow “Keep up the good work. Despite all the haters you work hard you got heart and you got Jesus. You can’t lose.”

Tebow responded “thank you brother, will do! Jesus is above all else!”

It was after that when Tebow invited Dwight and LeBron to play for the Broncos.

Dwight joked back that he won’t need shoulder pads because he was born with some. He also joked that LeBron already has a strong chin and won’t need a chinstrap.

I’m sure LeBron would be down. He challenged Kevin Durant to a flag football game and has talked about restarting his football career. The only problem for Tebow is that if he wants LeBron in the NFL, he’ll have to compete with Pete Carroll.

And if you’re wondering why Tebow mentioned LeBron, it’s because the Heat star has expressed an interest in football, and because he’s also supported the quarterback many times throughout the year. Can you feel the bromance building?

    These basketball players are athletes, they have size, moves and speed and the hands to make them outstanding  recievers and they used to fighting for a ball in crowd too.  It would not surprise me for some to try out, but they would feel odd in pads I’m thinking.  Good luck to them if they do try football, it might just be interesting….

    Lebron played football in high school so it wouldn’t be weird for him to be in pads. He would be a freak out there, that’s for sure.

    “Christian” and “stud”…..I’m sure God is pleased at using the two together.
