Don't Tell Ohio State Star D'Angelo Russell That LeBron James Is The Best Player In The World

LeBron James didn't attend Ohio State, but the four-time NBA MVP said he would have if he'd not gone straight from high school to the pros. He's got a locker at the Buckeyes' arena, his Nike clothing line outfits the team and he's often in Columbus. 

So, you would think that Thad Matta's program has a collective belief that James is the best basketball player in the world. Not so fast. 

Ohio State's best player, star freshman guard D'Angelo Russell, thinks differently.

It's actually not that surprising - Curry is playing at an MVP level and Russell has said multiple times that he models his game after the Golden State Warriors' star.

Russell and Ohio State are set to face Michigan State in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal round tonight at 8:55 p.m. E.T.
