We've seen LeBron James don Cowboys apparel, attend Los Angeles Rams games and even proclaim his love for the Cleveland Browns over the years. But which NFL team does he love most?

LeBron joined Eli and Peyton Manning on ESPN's secondary Monday Night Football broadcast last night to talk football. In doing so, he discussed which team he loves the most.

The Lakers superstar, who grew up in Akron, was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan growing up. But because he spent so much of his basketball career in Cleveland, he's since changed his loyalty to the Browns.

That's right, Browns fans. LeBron is Cleveland's biggest fan.

"I’m a hometown guy, I’m a #Browns fan," LeBron said on Monday night. "I grew up a Cowboys fan but I’m with the Browns, I think they are going to be really good this year, I’m excited."

Don't get too excited just yet, Browns fans. We've seen LeBron James change his mind on his favorite team plenty of times before.

It's easy to root for the Browns right now. They're the best team in the AFC North and look like a legitimate contender in the AFC.

The Cowboys, meanwhile, also look like a contender. They're off to a 2-1 start with wins over the Chargers and Eagles with a loss to the Buccaneers.

It sounds like LeBron's fantasy scenario would feature the Browns taking on the Cowboys in the Super Bowl. Perhaps only then would we discover LeBron's true fan loyalty.
