LeBron Not Picking The Talents In South Beach

Posted by Chip Patterson

Newest Miami Heat forward LeBron James openly states that if he had gone to college, one of his top choices would have been Ohio State.  King James has continued to be a Buckeye fan and has supported them publicly on many different occasions.  So why not chime in on college football on the day Ohio State kicks off their 2010 campaign?  

James even went as far to dismiss tonight's showdown with Marshall and look ahead to next week's showdown with No. 13 Miami on his Twitter account.

LeBron, let me tell you something, you've already pissed off most of Ohio and a majority of the NBA fan base.  Nothing that you tweet about the Buckeyes will reverse that.  Additionally, I would bet that a large percentage of your current die-hard fans are located in Miami, so why would you openly pick against them more than a week before the game?  

Of course, it should also be noted that most Miami Heat fans probably care very little for the Miami Hurricanes, and most die-hard Miami Hurricanes fans would probably be just fine without the Heat.  But still, it was an interesting move for a new Miami resident to make such a proclamation to his 718,000+ followers.
