COLUMBUS, OH – So, they play professional basketball, they never went to college…but JR Smith and LeBron James have an important question:

Are they eligible to play college football?

Because LeBron wants to take a snap for the Buckeyes!

The Cavs, including James, Smith, Tristan Thompson, Mike Dunleavy, Kevin Love,  Chris Andersen and Richard Jefferson watched the double overtime Buckeye victory from a loge.

The team also took to the end zone to celebrate a touchdown, doing their version of a “Go Bucks” dance.

This was LeBron’s first time attending the Ohio State-Michigan game in Columbus. James has been on the sideline at Ohio Stadium in the past, but not for a game he said is on his “bucket list.”
