LeBron James was back on the basketball courts in Miami on Friday night.
Before Miami Heat fans get too excited about the prospect of King James returning to Miami for real — as has been rumored — the Cleveland Cavaliers star was spotted playing in the gym of Christopher Columbus High School.
The private Catholic school for boys in Westchester has a history of a strong basketball program. The school’s current president, Brother Kevin Handibode, coached varsity basketball at Columbus for 18 years and only had three losing seasons before leaving coaching in 1988 to become the school’s principal.
But James, the NBA legend, is in an entirely different league.
On Saturday, Columbus tweeted an image of the former Heat star in casual clothes — a gray top, red cap and striped shorts — in the gym, leading one Twitter follower to quip, “He’s wearing Belen colors.”
The school’s tweet also touted several neighborhood eateries popular with its students like landmarks Arbetter’s Hot Dogs, Frankie’s Pizza and Sergio’s Restaurant.
