Green and James made a bet in late November about this year's Michigan State-Ohio State football game. James backed his Buckeyes while Green, like any proud alum would do, sided with his alma mater. Green made sure to remind James about the bet as soon as Michigan State defeated Ohio State 17-14. Green tweeted at James, heckling the Cavs forward for losing the bet.
Despite Green's trash talking, James didn't act like a sore loser and made good on his bet, as the Warriors forward told NBATV on Friday night.
“That man LeBron, that’s a good man right there,” Green said (via Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News). “A good man. He knows a young guy like me can’t afford it yet, so he took care of me. That’s what’s up. LeBron’s a man of his word.”
James sent Green cases of 2010 Silver Oak, a wine that retails at around $130 per bottle. That's not crazy expensive and is something that Green himself can afford after signing a max-deal with the Warriors this past summer, but then again Green is not making money like James, who recently signed a $500 million lifetime deal with Nike.
