By now, you’ve probably heard about JuJu Smith-Schuster’s savage troll of erstwhile teammate Le’Veon Bell. The Steelers receiver dropped the napalm on Bell during a press conference when discussing his recent purchase of several Mega Millions tickets:
JuJu Smith-Schuster bought 100-plus Mega Millions tickets this week. As his interview concluded, he said, "I tried to win it so we could get Le'Veon back. It didn't work."

Understandably, the remark went viral. Everyone picked it up. And when Bleacher Report posted it on their Instagram page, Bell jumped on and issued his own comment in response.
First of all, the big winner here is probably Kevin Hart. He’s ubiquitous. He’s top-of-mind. Second, Le’Veon is one to talk, considering he’s left more money on the table than any other running back will make all year.
Not that it was a question… but it’s past 9 am, #Steelers meeting have begun for the week, and franchised RB Le’Veon Bell is not in the building. He won’t play for another week. He’s now walked away from $6.8M in game checks during his stay away.

If you’re gonna make public quibbles about money, you have to understand that people are going to troll you–especially when you have so much of it anyway.
Yeah, JuJu’s funny. You’d know that if you came by practice once and a while, Le’Veon!
