Despite his best wishes, the four-time NBA MVP was unable to make the game and like millions across the nation, watched from a television screen.
It was probably best James couldn’t view in-person as his Buckeyes suffered their first loss of the season as Michigan stormed to a seismic road victory.
The LA Lakers’ road game at San Antonio Saturday evening made it impossible for James to make it to Ohio.
‘Can’t believe I’m not available to be at this game today!!’ James said on Twitter. ‘This is insane.’
He later tweeted ‘Let’s Goooooooooooooo BUCKS,’ shortly after the match began.
The Game, as it is often referred to, saw two of college football’s best clash in arguably the most sought-after game on the calendar.
