The rivalry goes beyond the gridiron.
Besides being the best basketball player in the world, LeBron James is also a die-hard Ohio State football fan.
Of course, that means he can’t stand Michigan, and James couldn’t resist poking OSU’s biggest rival during a media session before tonight’s road game against the Detroit Pistons.
“We look forward to the match-up. We look forward to going up to the Big House and coming out victorious,” James said when asked about this weekend’s game, setting up his shot at the Wolverines.
“Who do we play?” he continued. “Who does Ohio State play?”
When a reported responded with “Michigan,” James again said “Who?” You can see the full exchange below.

Like we said, James has a close relationship with the Buckeye program. The team even wears LeBron cleats when they take the field.
