LeBron James Has Own Locker in the Ohio State Basketball Locker Room

LeBron James

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James is easily the best basketball player in the world right now. He’s got the skill and the personality to make him a star. Everyone wants to be him and every NBA teams wants a piece of him. Well, the love for LeBron has gone all the way to the college ranks with the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The Buckeyes were one of James’ top potential college destinations if he were to choose college over the NBA, but luckily for LeBron, the minimum age rule was not in place when he was graduating high school. James got to skip the collegiate level and start making millions while he was still a teenager — who wouldn’t make that choice?

Like I said earlier, the Buckeyes were one of his top choices on his list of colleges, but he chose to skip the whole level of play and head right into dominating the NBA.

The Buckeyes honored King James in a way no other college has — seeing as he didn’t attend any. No college will ever have a statue of the best player in the world because no team has enough affiliation with the superstar to do so.

Check out how Ohio State honored James:

While the locker is to show recruits the LeBron gear that the school uses for their uniforms, it is quite the sight to see LeBron James’ name up there on an Ohio State locker.

This is just a case of Ohio State trying to steal the best players and claim them for their own. Okay, maybe not. Still a weird move.
