If the Bowl Championship Series standings hold in college football, then No.1 Florida State will be playing No.2 Ohio State in the BCS National Championship in January. James is a fan of both the Buckeyes and Florida State, so he might have to choose a side.
If the two teams meet, James said he would cheer for his home-state team. James has met Ohio State coach Urban Meyer on a few occasions and has attended Ohio State football games.
And, even though he went straight into NBA lottery out of high school, he also has an honorary locker in the basketball team’s basketball facility. James has been a fan of FSU since the Deion Sanders days. Coincidentally, James’ two favorite college-football teams are two of the most despised by Miami Hurricanes fan.
“I got to root for my Buckeyes, man,” James said. “I love Florida State, too. I’ve been a huge Florida State fan and I’ve never wanted those two teams to play and I guess you never say never…but I have to go with my Buckeyes even though I am a Florida State fan as well.”
