Philly Gameday has learned that the recent State Farm commercial featuring LeBron James playing for the Cleveland Browns was actually based on a nightmare James had about playing for the 4-12 team.

“I woke up one night in a cold sweat thinking I was on a team that could only win one home game all season,” James said. “I was so shook up and had to tell someone, so I got my agent on the phone. Next thing I know, they turn it into a commercial pretending I would actually want to play for such a god-awful team.”
