LeBron a Miami resident, not yet a ‘Canes fan

- Associated Press - Thursday, September 2, 2010

CORAL GABLES, FLA. (AP) - LeBron James didn't change all his teams this summer.

James posted on his Twitter feed Thursday that he's considering going to Columbus, Ohio, on Sept. 11 to see the matchup between No. 2 Ohio State _ his longtime team of choice _ and No. 13 Miami.

And no, the former Cleveland Cavaliers star isn't rooting for the Hurricanes. The NBA's two-time reigning MVP wrote, "O-State will prevail for sure. Will be exciting!"

Miami and Ohio State both opened their season with wins Thursday night. The Hurricanes beat Florida A&M 45-0, while the Buckeyes topped Marshall 45-7.

James worked out with the Hurricanes' basketball team twice last week. He has an invitation to join Miami for any of its football games this season, and at least two Hurricanes players _ Jacory Harris and Damien Berry _ sent James a note on Twitter asking him to attend the home opener.

"He's down in Dade County now," Berry said Thursday night. "We're going to try to change his mind and make him a Hurricanes fan."
