Report: LeBron James will be in Columbus for 'The Game'
The ‘King’ of the NBA is expected to be in attendance for the king of college football games this weekend.
According to Ari Wasserman of Cleveland.com. LeBron James – along with other members from the Cleveland Cavaliers – will be headed to Ohio Stadium on Saturday to watch No. 3 Michigan take on No. 2 Ohio State.
James – a known Buckeyes supporter who was in attendance for the title game in 2014 – has picked a good game to attend. This matchup has been regarded as the most significant contest between the two programs since 2006, with the winner expected to lock up a bid in the College Football Playoff.
He’ll also get to see his new cleats modeled on the field in one of college football’s biggest rivalries.
Attending major sporting events is nothing new for James. He and teammates were also in attendance during the World Series, when the Cleveland Indians hosted the Chicago Cubs in Game 6 and Game 7.
