LeBron James ruins Dwyane Wade's interview while cheering for Ohio State

Dec. 3 (UPI) -- It's no secret the LeBron James loves Ohio State. So it wasn't a surprise when that fandom overshadowed Dwyane Wade's postgame interview.

Wade was talking to reporters Saturday, following the Cleveland Cavaliers' 116-111 win against the Memphis Grizzlies at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.


The Buckeyes were battling Wisconsin at the same time in the Big Ten Championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Wade was answering a question, when LeBron could be heard shouting in the background, distracting his teammate during the session.

"We always talk about never get too high, never get too low, and somebody preaches..." Wade said, before being interrupted.

"Go Dobbins. Go! Aaaaaah," James screamed.

James was going crazy because Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins was running all over the Badgers. The Buckeyes freshman ran for 174 yards on Saturday, setting the Ohio State freshman record with 1,364 yards. That record tops Maurice Clarett's total of 1,237 yards, set in 2002.


After getting home, James posted a video on Instagram while watching the game.

"Congrats, The Ohio State Buckeyes, Big Ten Championship again," James said. "They'll probably be in the playoffs".

Yeah it's a #OH #IO thing! πŸ™πŸΎπŸ‘‘

Ohio State's 27-21 victory was not enough to earn a bid into the 2018 College Football Playoff.
