Ohio farm honors LeBron James and the Cavs’ title with simplistic corn mazes
It’s a tradition as old as sports themselves (probably): immortalizing incredible accomplishments and the superstars who make them possible with ridiculous corn mazes.
We’ve seen versions honoring Washington QB Kirk Cousins, the Minnesota Wild, the Tampa Bay Lightning, and even NASCAR driver Joey Logano. And earlier this month, one Ohio farm unveiled its own maze that celebrates LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ first NBA title:
Wow. This is a championship-level corn maze. 🏆🌽Article continues below ...

Unfortunately, I’m going to be the jerk in the room who points out that these mazes aren’t particularly difficult. They’re really cool, and I appreciate all of the hard work that inevitably went into these agricultural marvels. But look at the labyrinth in the middle, with exits/entries at the bottom-left and bottom-right corners. There’s a clear path through the "HOMEGROWN" part of the maze that takes you into LeBron’s (picture-perfect) hairline and through his dome. Even if you pick the wrong paths, they all lead to the right choice.
The left and right mazes are even simpler — although am I crazy, or do the "BELIEVELAND" and "Larry O’Brien trophy" mazes not have exits? They just kind of lead in big loops back to the original entrance. That’s fine; sometimes a maze ends with a final goal in the middle. It’s like all three mazes are part of one larger entity.
3 in 1.
Hey, remember that time the Warriors blew a 3-1 Finals lead against the Cleveland Cavaliers? Good times.
Anyway, these are amazing, truly. Cleveland fans will undoubtedly enjoy the experience of navigating the fields of corn. But if you manage to get lost, that’s on you.
