LeBron James never played college basketball, so that always left Ohio State fans wondering “what if?” about the Akron native.
They might get their best chance to envision it Tuesday night when James’ Cavaliers play an NBA preseason game at Ohio State’s Value City Arena. James showed off his customized Ohio State shoes during a shoot-around, and on Instagram he is showing fans what it might’ve looked like if he ever donned the scarlet and gray (with the help of Photoshop).
The game Tuesday against the Wizards will mark Cleveland’s final tuneup before the team begins defense of its NBA title. James brought Northeast Ohio its first NBA championship last June and has not been shy about his fandom of the Buckeyes or the Cleveland Indians, who are one win away from the World Series.
Buckeyes fans will have a chance to show their love in return Tuesday night.
