News Streaking Penguins Reportedly Just One Win Away from Getting Acknowledged on Twitter by LeBron James
"I got word tonight that if we win our 14th in a row on Thursday against Winnipeg, LeBron or at least LeBron's marketing rep who posts some of his tweets will tweet: 'Wow. 14 in a row Pengins. Congrats,'" said Pittsburgh head coach Dan Bylsma. "I told the guys and they're obviously thrilled. I just hope they can keep their attention on the ice and don't think ahead to LeBron's tweet."
Pittsburgh general manager Ray Shero has known for days that a LeBron tweet about the Penguins was in the works if the team could keep winning and has been actively making trades to improve his team in hopes of earning that recognition.
"It was the talk of hockey a few weeks ago when LeBron mentioned Chicago's points streak on Twitter, which in turn got the Blackhawks noticed by national media," said Shero. "We made it our goal that day as an organization to get noticed by him."
If Pittsburgh can increase its win streak to 14 games, team owner Mario Lemieux has said he will have the tweet placed on a banner, which will be raised to the Consol Energy Center rafters alongside the team's three Stanley Cup championship banners.
Picture Lebron's Face as Abraham Lincoln
Who would make a better president: LeBron Lincoln or Michael Jordan?
He has peaked. It's all downhill from here.
Tiny people should probably stay out of LeBron's way.
I don't care for how they enjoy themselves playing sports.
A friendly soul like Ricky Rubio would never approve of such violence.
Or maybe Dwyane Wade videobombed the latest Bosh performance.
Picture Celtics Fan is Not a LeBron Fan
He probably bought that at a classy clothing store like Brooks Brothers.
That fan is clutch.
