LeBron James goes wild over Ohio State during postgame interviews

We’ve all been stuck at work before while our favorite team plays a huge game.

In this regard we are all — for once — like LeBron James.

James and the Cleveland Cavaliers had a game at home against the Memphis Grizzlies last night but The King was just as concerned about how his Ohio State Buckeyes were playing in the Big Ten Championship. So as soon as his game ended, he ran back to the locker room to check on the scene in Indianapolis.

And he kept interrupting his Dwyane Wade’s postgame interview with his cheering.


Wade was in the middle of giving an answer when James starts screaming in the background about OSU running back J.K. Dobbins.

The side eye from Wade is perfect. You can tell he wants to ask James to calm down, but he just can’t bring himself to do it.

The Cavs defeated the Grizzlies 116-111. James scored 34 points including Cleveland’s final 13 points on the night.

Was that all just so he could avoid overtime and catch the end of the Buckeyes game? Well, if so, it worked out quite well for both sides. The Cavs got the win and LeBron got to watch his favorite team put the finishing touches on a 27-21 victory over Wisconsin.
