LeBron James tweet raises question

James, an Ohio native celebrated the result by joking with Michigan-born Green.

Born in 1990, come the time he transferred to college in 2008, Green opted to keep things local.

He signed with Michigan state and its Spartans basketball team to play his college sport.

In his four-year stint with Michigan, Green played 145 times for the team.

He recorded 1,096 rebounds, 1,163 field goal attempts and registered over 1,500 points for his team.
