Once the best of friends and world champion teammates, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are now locked in a bitter feud — over baseball.
As teams from their respective home states prepared to square off in the World Series, James and Wade made a friendly wager. James, representing Cleveland, and Chicago-native Wade bet that the fan of the losing team would have to show up to today's game between the Cavaliers and Bulls in the winning team's full uniform. Ironically, the Cubs erased a 3-1 series deficit to prevail in the Fall Classic, and James held up to his end of the agreement.
Uninterrupted shared the first image of James wearing the Cubbies' pinstripes. During a media sessions yesterday, James said he wouldn't wear the cleats because he has a game to play, so he went with a matching white and blue colorway of the Nike LeBron Soldier 10. It's unfortunate that he didn't have a custom pair of Soldier 10 Cleats ready for the photo-op.
