LeBron James hails Jalen Hurts

Jalen Hurts is a breakout star in the NFL, playing for the Philadelphia Eagles. Although he and LeBron have no connection from the past, the NFL star was all praise for the future Hall of Famer of the NBA. Hurts was asked by the press about LeBron in a press conference, and he could not hold back his admiration and praises for the 4-time NBA champion.

He said,” I have never been able to see Lebron play, never met him. He’s a great player, great.. I mean he is so transcendent in terms of the things he is been able to do on the court and off the court. He has changed the game in so many different ways.”

Later on, Hurts talked about his desire to see LeBron James in action and also possibly meet him. He also mentioned his dad and told the press that his father was a big fan of Bron and has been following him since his debut as a rookie.

LeBron James appreciated these kind words from the star quarterback of the Eagles and shouted him out on his official social media account. Bron reposted a video of Hurts’ conference and captioned it, “And it is all love and respect right back to you, Young!!”
