CHICAGO — LeBron James dressed like a champion — a World Series champion.

James made good on a bet with close friend Dwyane Wade and showed up wearing a Chicago Cubs uniform before Friday night’s game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls.

James made a friendly wager on the World Series between the Cleveland Indians and Cubs with his former Miami teammate Wade, a Chicago product who signed with his hometown team in the summer. The Cubs rallied from a 3-1 deficit to win their first championship since 1908.

It was quite a sight seeing James in a Cubs uniform on Friday. He wore a No. 23 Cubs jersey with “James” stitched across the back, a Cubs hat partially covered by a Cubbie-blue hoodie, pinstripe pants and long baseball socks.
