LeBron James' reactions during and after Indians' World Series defeat are great

LeBron James loves a game seven. But last night he was spectator rather than a competitor as the Cleveland Indians took on the Chicago Cubs in game seven of the MLB World Series.

The Indians ended up losing the game, sacrificing a 3-1 series lead - sound familiar? - but their fightback late in the game got the crowd inside Progressive Field - including LeBron - extremely hyped.

Just five outs away from losing the game, the Indians mounted a spirited comeback to score three runs against Aroldis Chapman at the bottom of the eighth.

The camera panned to LeBron who had absolutely lost it in the crowd as the passion and intensity of the moment flooded to the surface.

It all proved to be in vain, the Cubs won their first World Series in over 100 years in overtime and condemned Cleveland to the realms of nearly men - despite not being tipped to reach the World Series, coming so close will still be a bitter pill to swallow.

Following the heartbreaking loss for the Indians, James posted a video to The Uninterrupted expressing his, the Cavaliers' and the city of Cleveland's pride and support for all the baseball team had achieved in the season.

The Cavs have shown up in support of their city brothers throughout their whole playoff run and it's only right that they stand by them in defeat.

LeBron knows the feeling of losing in the finals all too well. The Indians need to act like the self-professed 'King' and come back even better.
