LeBron James picks Ohio State... and Duke in his NCAA brackets. 
Posted by Matt Moore

LeBron James did something outrageously duplicitous Wednesday, which will likely spur fans of his in Ohio in light of a shocking betrayal. No, not that one. Another one. A new one. Kind of. 

Remember how we told you that LeBron picked Ohio State in the NCAA tournament? Well, on Wednesday, LeBron revealed his bracket on his website, and um, well, er...
He picked Duke

Specifically, he picked Duke over Ohio State in the Final Four, along with Lousville over Pitt, with Duke toppling Pittsburgh in the Final. Typical. He picks an east coast team over his home-state Buckeyes. When asked about the pick Wednesday, LeBron told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel "I got two brackets. My heart wants Ohio State, of course." 

Perhaps the bigger revelation here is that LeBron is one of those annoying dudes who fills out more than one bracket, covering his bases while still trying to act bold about his favorite team. If that's his favorite team this week. Those people are so annoying, constantly working out multiple entries with different picks in the hopes of scamming home the prize money. What kind of a person does that? 

This kind of person, that's who. That's right. I love the multiple brackets. It's like playing some sort of choose-your-own-adventure game, only you get to lose $40 instead of just $10 because you managed to not pick the one 12-5 upset. It's a brilliant game of contingencies and why wouldn't you want to increase your odds by increasing your own number of entries? After all, you're increasing the prize pool at the same time. Screw you for judging us. LeBron is a saint to speak out for us, the multiple-bracket-enterers. 

You're going to throw things, now, aren't you?

Hmm...this is the same guy who picked Miami over Chicago....Lets take a look at that choice.  Miami will not even win the same amount of games that Cleveland won last year.  Chicage is tied for the Eastern conference lead with Boston.  Why? Because Chicago is a complete team and Miami only has the Big 3....Hey Bron!!!  Give me the numbers to the Powerball and Mega

I didn't think people who didn't play college basketball and went straight to the NBA cares enough about the march maddness or better yet have a team to root for. This is what sucks about not going to college. You will never have a college alumni to say this is the school I went to. If Lebron went to college and let say he went to Ohio State, i am sure he will not go to the NBA after the first year. He will have probably transfered to Michigan State his junior year. That is the type of guy he is. Multiple bracket is like hedging. Hedging is the most absurd thing in sports betting.

I don't think LeBron even cares about his reputation for the being sellout in the history of sports. Wasn't there also the incidence when he was supposed to make an appearance at a club in Atlanta and then changed his mind to go to another club, resulting in a lawsuit that was eventually dropped? It's not even just on the court basketball decisions anymore that he sells out on. He's a complete sellout from head to toe and if I were one of his "goonies", I'd be scared of getting cut for someone else.

What a character. Sheesh. Wouldn't be surprised if he created a reality show sooner or later on.

He is going with OSU in his non money bracket and Duke with his money pick.  He's not stupid.  He licks a*s, but he's not stupid.

Who gives a rats wrinkled ass, who Lebron likes in the field?  He liked college basketball so much, he decided to not bother with it.  Shut up and just play please!  March madness is for all of us who love it, not for those who never respected it!  Just shut the hell up Lebron!

LeBron became an OSU fan when they started finishing in the top 5 every year in football.  The only reason he keeps up the charade is that his logo adorns OSU jerseys.  He's a businessman and he has the right to align himself with whomever.  But to pretend he's a diehard fan of OSU is disengenuous and insulting.
