Terrelle Pryor: Please don't boo LeBron, OSU fans

This might come as a bit of a shock, but LeBron James is not the most well-liked man in the state of Ohio these days. Sure, he's still doing the occasional fundraiser here or there up in his home state, but once the NBA season comes, Ohioans would much rather he just go down to Miami and stay there--probably on penalty of things being thrown at him and/or his car. Messy breakups: they happen.

So when word came last week that LeBron was planning to come to the Shoe for the Ohio State-Miami game this Saturday, Cavs-loyal OSU fans were understandably perturbed. LeBron's announcement that he was cheering for the Buckeyes only muddled the issue further; how can Ohio's Greatest Monster be a Buckeye fan? Should they boo him anyway and exile him from the scarlet and grey, just to be safe? 

Terrelle Pryor has the answer for these fans: please no booing LBJ; he's with me:

Pryor said he has exchanged text messages with James this week and hopes to see him at Saturday's home game against the Miami Hurricanes, believing James plans to attend. If he does, Pryor has a message for fans.

"If LeBron does come, just treat him with respect and respect his decision," Pryor said. "Please, no name calling or booing or anything like that. Please. That's my mentor, and I've got a lot of respect for him and a lot of love for him."

That's all fine and good, and perhaps OSU fans can learn to keep the NBA stuff to the NBA and enjoy the company of a very famous fellow Buckeye fan. Perhaps.

But at the same time, Pryor did call LeBron his "mentor," and if that statement's to be believed, watch out; OSU fans should at least steel themselves for the possibility that the Buckeyes lose to the 'Canes... at which point Pryor transfers--or, excuse me, "takes his talents" to Miami. Hey, what are mentors for?

Lebron should find something else to do with his time. Like drink Mai Tai's on south beach, why does he think it's ok to stir up this commotion.  If your gonna go to the F=====g game go I'm so sick of these drama queens, now the mentor is dragging in poor Pryor. I'm a Michigan fan, and could really care less but why does this even make headlines if he just went to the game, he could sit on the sidelines with pryor on his lap, and no one wouldve known he was there, but now of course lets blow it up like my mentor and have the national media know LB is coming to town to get SHUNNED.

Of course LeBron's a Buckeyes fan. He's the ultimate frontrunner. It's the only Ohio team he can root for, under those conditions.
