Sporting life in the city of Cleveland is pretty good right now. After the Cavaliers ended the city's 52-year wait for a title, the Indians are about to play in their first World Series since 1997.

It just so happens that the World Series - which they will compete in against either the Chicago Cubs or the L.A. Dodgers - will begin on the same day as the new NBA season.

As has long been the tradition in the NBA, the champions will have their ring ceremony before the first game - leaving Cleveland natives with a conflict of interest?

Do they watch the Cavaliers' inaugural ring ceremony - a moment all Cleveland fans have waited many, many years for, or do they watch the start of the World Series.

Well, now they can do both. Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has confirmed the ceremony has been moved forward by 30 minutes to ensure there will be no clash between the two huge moments.

LeBron James and his Cavs teammates have been behind the Indians throughout the playoffs and will continue to show their support as the MLB organisation look to make it two championships for Cleveland in a matter of months.

It's like the old London bus saying, you wait for an age for one then two come along at once.
