The recruiting scandal currently rocking college basketball has reached all the way to the best player in the world.

LeBron James, whose logo graces Ohio State athletic equipment in multiple sports, didn't mince words when discussing the NCCA on Tuesday.

From espn.com:

"We have to figure that out, but kids getting paid is nothing new under the sun. You all seen 'Blue Chips'? It's a real movie, seriously. ... The NCAA is corrupt, we know that. Sorry, it's going to make headlines, but it's corrupt."

James said the NBA can step in by expanding its G League, which was founded in 2001 and now includes 26 teams -- each individually affiliated with an NBA franchise -- with an expansion to 27 planned for the 2018-19 season.

The Cavaliers host the Brooklyn Nets at 7 p.m. tonight.
