So, the Cleveland Cavaliers — and honorary Ohio State Buckeye, LeBron James — are headed to the NBA Finals and the outcome has been wildly debated since the final buzzer of both Game 7’s in the conference championships. Once again, the Cavs will face the Golden State Warriors, and there are a lot of different opinions about how this edition of the finals will play out.
Second-year running back J.K. Dobbins learned a tough lesson on Thursday about doubting Ohio’s NBA team, and the GOAT, heading into Game 1. Dobbins’ Ohio State teammates had some fun with him in the locker room after his admission, moving his gear to James’ honorary locker and isolating him in the training room.

There was no love lost between Dobbins and his teammates, but maybe next time the Buckeye won’t “accidentally” second-guess anything LeBron-related for quite some time. Dobbins did look to clarify his comments, but this sure looks a little bit like a hostage-video, and the running back is being coerced to apologize to King James. Also, everyone knows that LeBron goes on a social media blackout during the playoffs, so he’s not seeing this anyway. So, what are you trying to prove J.K.?
