LeBron James Backs Donte Whitner, 49ers

Posted Jan 13, 2014

NBA superstar LeBron James will be switching his allegiances this NFL postseason. James is rooting for his friend Donte Whitner and the 49ers to win the Super Bowl.



He's a Cowboys fan, but that's not stopping him from rooting on a fellow native of Cleveland, Ohio.

NBA superstar LeBron James congratulated his friend Donte Whitner last night after the 49ers 23-10 win over the Panthers and said he's supporting San Francisco's quest to win a sixth Super Bowl title.

"I want him to win it all," James wrote in a tweet directed at the 49ers hard-hitting safety.

Whitner replied, "Much love."


Another NBA All-Star saw James' social media post and chimed in. It was Houston Rockets guard James Harden, a long-time 49ers supporter.

"I like the way you talkin right now," Harden replied to James. "You might as well put on a 49er jersey lol."

James, the proud Cowboys fan, said he wouldn't go that far.

"I had a Niners Starters jacket with the pocket in the front when I was younger," James said back.
