Isaiah Thomas, Jamal Crawford make ‘Sonics’ pitch to lure Lakers’ LeBron James to Seattle
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James didn’t have to wait for long to get an invite to a ProAm game. In fact, two of his peers from the NBA in Isaiah Thomas and Jamal Crawford quickly made their pitch to the champion forward.
On Friday, LeBron sent out a tweet looking for a ProAm competition to join, noting that it’s the time of the year for such games. Less than two hours after posting it, Thomas and Crawford replied to James to convince him to join “TheCrawsOver” in Seattle.
Crawford, who started the ProAm league, even noted that it’s the perfect opportunity for the Lakers star to be able to go to Seattle as he hasn’t been there since the Sonics left.

It remains to be seen if LeBron James will accept the invitation, but it will certainly be epic to see him join TheCrawsOver and play with his peers and some NBA players.
Jamal Crawford’s ProAm league started last July 10 and has been playing games during weekends. With that said, there is still plenty of time and chances for the Lakers forward to jump in and join the competition. The league runs until late August, anyway.

Maybe LeBron James can bring his Tune Squad, too? Or maybe invite the real-life Goon squad!
Kidding aside, if LeBron is serious about playing (or even just watching) in a ProAm league, TheCrawsOver might be one of his best options.
