LeBron James crowns Travis Kelce the new King of Ohio amid the Chiefs star’s romance with Taylor Swift: ‘He deserves it right now’

LeBron James, a well-known NBA player, has jokingly referred to Travis Kelce, the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, as the King of Ohio due to his romantic involvement with Taylor Swift. The couple’s relationship has been the topic of many discussions after Swift was seen supporting Kelce at three of his games. James, who is frequently called ‘King James’, playfully named Kelce as the new most famous athlete from Northeast Ohio and passed his title on to him during an alternative broadcast for the Chiefs’ Week 6 victory over the Broncos.

Swift had a pleasant time visiting Arrowhead recently as she watched the Chiefs take down the Broncos with Kelce alongside her boyfriend’s mother, Donna. James and Kelce are both from Ohio, specifically Westlake and Akron, and James is particularly revered in the state for his impressive career with the Cavaliers, including leading them to their first-ever championship in 2016. Recently, James expressed interest in appearing on Kelce’s podcast, “New Heights,” which he co-hosts with his brother Jason. Kelce welcomed James to appear on the show, stating that they had likely already extended an invitation to him, and that if they hadn’t, their interns would hear about it.

The NBA star truly cemented his hero status in Ohio by playing 11 seasons for the Cavaliers

The basketball star solidified his reputation as a hero in Ohio by playing for the Cavaliers for 11 seasons. On Thursday, Kelce and Swift once again took social media by storm as the Love Story singer watched him play for the third time this season. Swift flew in from Los Angeles that morning to attend the Chiefs’ game against the Denver Broncos, shortly after attending the premiere screening of her Eras Tour movie in Hollywood. Their relationship appears to be flourishing. Despite Kelce’s mom apparently throwing shade at Swift during their first meeting in Arrowhead last month when they won against the Chicago Bears, she still seemed to be on good terms with Donna. Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Kansas City’s star quarterback Patrick, joined them in their suite and was seen hugging Swift when their partners brilliantly combined on the field.

Taylor Swift was seen celebrating with Brittany Mahomes, the wife of football player Patrick Mahomes, during a recent event. It appears that her relationship with another football player, Kelce, is getting serious as she was also spotted chatting with his father, Ed Kelce, for the first time at a game. After the Chiefs won a match against the Denver Broncos, Swift was seen spending quality time with Kelce, and it seems like she stayed over at his house as her security team was spotted outside the property the following morning. The vehicles parked outside the property were the same ones that picked up Swift from her private plane and drove her away from the airport on Thursday.
