LeBron Assures Ohio State Fans He’ll Be Playing In Columbus Exhibition Game

LeBron James is excited to play in Columbus tonight in the Cavaliers' preseason matchup against the Wizards.

The Cavs take on the Wizards at Ohio State's Schottenstein Center tonight in their final preseason game of the year. LeBron James, who is a proud Ohio native and Buckeyes fan, expressed his excitement about playing in Columbus tonight.

James' photo reassured fans who were wondering whether or not he would be playing in the team's final tuneup before the regular season. Buckeyes football head coach Urban Meyer is excited to have "The King" in Columbus as well.

The photo James chose to post will certainly put a smile on Ohio State fans' faces around the country. Just how good would James have been in college if he decided to take that route instead of jumping to the NBA straight from high school?

Cleveland's regular season gets underway on Oct. 25 as the Cavs play host to the Knicks.
