LeBron James and Dwyane Wade play in different cities now but, they are still the NBA’s closest friendship. The two friends are notorious for their propensity to visit each other despite their current role as adversaries.
The two superstars were teammates as a part of the “Big 3” in Miami from 2010-2014. James is an Ohio product and Buckeye fan while Wade hails from Chicago and supports the Cubs.
So, Tuesday will be a huge day in Cleveland as the Cleveland Indians take on the Chicago Cubs in the World Series.
The 2006 MVP took to Twitter to discuss a wager with his best friend. James replied quickly to the tweet and accepted the wager. The 2016 Finals MVP has been openly supporting his Northeast Ohio neighbors during their playoff run.
Ohio has circled the wagons around the region as the Cavaliers captured the Larry O’Brien trophy in June. The party went on for what seemed like weeks and the St. Vincent St. Mary’s product will have to miss part of game one of the World Series to receive his championship ring.
Both events happening on the same night and mere yards away from each other will provide an unbelievable visual for people watching at home on television. The 12-time All-Star might even attend some of the games during the series.
Both Wade and James could possibly be present during the same game which would undoubtedly ignite a media firestorm. The world will be watching for this amazing series and what the details of what this wager are exactly.
