Noted Dallas Cowboys supporter LeBron James thinks that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, even with a season-ending ACL tear this weekend, could end up being named NFL MVP this season. "It sucks," James said of Wentz -- one of the players he identified as his favorites last month. "Injuries is part of the game, but this year it's been a little wacky. I don't know what it is. I was actually watching the game when it happened and when I seen the hit happen, I was like, ‘Oh that didn't look good.' And then when he threw the touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery, he didn't even get turned all the way around. He kind of side threw it like Bernie Kosar used to throw. I was like, ‘Something is wrong with his knee.' And I was praying for the best and unfortunately, obviously, an MVP season hopefully it doesn't affect it. Obviously you've got Tom Brady up there as well. But he's the MVP of the league so far with what he's been doing as a quarterback and the success of their team. Like I told you, besides Julio (Jones), AB (Antonio Brown) and Tom Brady, Carson has been my favorite player to watch right now. It's unfortunate that two of the brighter stars in the NFL, him and Deshaun (Watson), lose their season over injuries."
