Ezekiel Elliott may not be from the state of Ohio, but he sure made a pretty good home in Columbus. After LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA championship, the former Ohio State running back took to Twitter to congratulate the team and post a cool tribute.
This is pretty cool as it shows James’s fandom for the Buckeyes as he grew up not far from their campus. He has shown his love for Ohio State multiple times in the past.
Just over a year ago, Ezekiel Elliott helped the Buckeyes to a win in the inaugural College Football Playoff and LeBron James was there to congratulate him. A year later, Elliott is repaying the favor.
It’s not a bad time to be a sports fan in Ohio.
