WATCH: LeBron James was too hyped for Ohio State win, ruins reporter's interview with Dwyane Wade
LeBron James couldn’t contain his excitement.
After the Cleveland Cavaliers posted a 116-111 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night, James was in the locker room taking in the B1G Championship Game, rooting hard for his hometown Buckeyes. Like, really rooting hard.
Like, so hard that his fandom ruined an interview with a reporter and teammate Dwyane Wade.
While a reporter was interviewing Wade after the Cleveland win, James can be heard shouting in the background “Oh my God! Go (J.K.) Dobbins!” Wade was taken by surprise and just stared at James while he went berserk.
It’s actually a hilarious video that Bleacher Report shared:

James is a known Ohio State fan and has been a longtime supporter of the Buckeyes.
I guess even his fandom can get carried away at times, too.
