Before the King: Ohio State the Last Time LeBron Missed the Finals

All hail King James. LeBron has lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year, where they will again match up against the Golden State Warriors in search for their second title. Four straight finals appearances is impressive enough, but this is LeBron’s eight straight overall, with the previous four coming with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh during his time with the Miami Heat. 

Eight years is a long time, and Ohio State has looked different in many ways since LeBron lost to the Boston Celtics in six games back in his first stint with the Cavaliers on May 13, 2010.

Tressel Gets Final Win Against Michigan

2010 marked the last year in Jim Tressel’s coaching career, and he capped it off with a dominant 37-7 win over rival Michigan in November of 2010. The victory came in part due to 175 yards from running back Daniel Herron, which included an 89-yard run and a 32-yard touchdown. However, the victory may not be the most notable moment for Tressel from eight years ago.

The Tattoo Scandal Had Only Begun

Most of 2010 was still the Jim Tressel era for Ohio State football, but by May 13, the behind-the-scenes events of the dreaded scandal that forced the acclaimed head coach to resign were officially underway. At this point in time, Tressel knew about what his players had sold and to whom at that tattoo parlor via emails from Christopher T. Cicero. These events would not fully unravel until later, but LeBron’s last early exit is still a reminder of a dark time for OSU football fans.

Ohio State Basketball Gets Upset in Sweet 16

After finishing No. 5 in the AP Poll, winning the Big Ten Tournament and ending up as a two seed for the NCAA tournament, all signs pointed to the Buckeyes making a strong tournament run in 2010 behind star forward Evan Turner. However, the dream ended at the hands of six-seeded Tennessee, falling 76-73.

Ohio Union Opened its Doors

The current Ohio Union opened on March 29, 2010 in all of its glory. The $118 million project opened for performance space, new food locations, as a center for multiple services and, above all, for all incoming freshman to take that cliche picture next to the metal Brutus on the bench.
