The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently in Chicago, taking on the Bulls. This is not ideal for LeBron James' NCAA Tournament watching.

King James, an Ohio native, has long rooted for the in-state Buckeyes. He's often said that he would've attended Ohio State if he had gone to college.

Ohio State is currently in the NCAA Tournament's second round. The Bucks are taking on Gonzaga.

James was apparently able to catch a couple of minutes of the contest at halftime of tonight's Bulls-Cavs game.

From Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon:

"He was standing in the hallway at United Center for several minutes of halftime, watching Ohio State's comeback, yelling at the TV."

Here's the full tweet:

Ohio State is making a comeback on the higher-seeded Zags.

The Buckeyes currently trail, 52-46, with about 15 minutes to play.

The game is being televised on CBS.
