Basketball's king has revealed who he will be rooting for during the National Invitation Tournament in Ohio.

When the Zips take on the Buckeyes Tuesday, LeBron will be cheering on Akron.

But that wasn't a decision he takes lightly.

"Obviously I'm torn, being a huge supporter of Ohio State," the Cavs player said after the team's loss to the Utah Jazz Monday night.

"But I'm also a big supporter of my high school coach, Keith Dambrot. He shaped me into who I am today as a basketball player. And, you know, it's where I'm from so I'm going with the Zips, for sure."
