CM Punk takes subtle shot at basketball star LeBron James

After losing his UFC debut in rather quick fashion at UFC 203, CM Punk has stayed relatively quiet in terms of media duties.

His future was questioned after his disastrous performance against Mickey Gall, and his career in the octagon is already all-but over after Dana White admitted that his next fight may not be in the UFC.

With a return to WWE, a company he left back in 2014 on bad terms, looking even more unlikely, there is a big question mark over his future.

However, one thing that has cheered Punk up in recent weeks is the fact his baseball team, Chicago Cubs, won the World Series, ending their 108-year trophy drought.

The Cubs managed to beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 in the series, but not everything about the situation pleased the former WWE Champion.

Punk hasn't been impressed with Cleveland Cavalier star man LeBron James, and has incredibly accused him of being a bandwagon fan.

Following all the hype surrounding the MLB World Series, James started to show more and more interest throughout, and that is clearly something that frustrated Punk, especially considering the basketball star used to be a New York Yankees fan.

Punk was talking during the Chicago Cubs' victory parade, and he seemingly aimed fire at the basketball star, which has been caught and posted by a Twitter user.

@iamvega1982 posted the video of the trophy parade and Punk can be heard discussing James and his tendency to support different teams.

You can see the video below and make up for yourself whether or not Punk was taking shots at one of sport's most famous individuals.
