BURBANK, Calif. -- For the first time ever, LeBron James is making an in-studio appearance on Ellen -- and his love for Northeast Ohio shines through.
Among the highlights, James gushed his hometown pride when discussing Golden State Warriors' rival Stephen Curry.
“The best thing for me is that we are two of the most talked about athletes in the world and we’re both born in Akron, Ohio. That means a lot to me.”
Both were born at the same Akron hospital a few years apart.
James also calls Curry a “great guy” and a “fierce competitor.”
Then, the Cavs’ MVP takes on Ellen in the “Ultimate Waste Basket Challenge.”
We have a preview posted below (mobile users WATCH HERE), but be sure to watch the entire Ellen interview on Channel 3 at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
