As James walked through the arena before Friday night’s game, he was met by a gleeful Wade, who videotaped his rival.
"My Indians gave everything they had," James said in an earlier video posted on the Bleacher Report website. "But the Cubs came back, and, you know, they showed what true champions was all about.
“Meanwhile, I’m pinstriped-up, walking into a nationally televised game in Chicago because of a bet I lost.”
"It's a bet," James continued. "You have to fulfill your bet. Nothing more to it."
Cleveland’s luck against Chicago continued to sour, as the Cavaliers lost 111-105 despite James’ 27-point night. Wade helped Chicago to victory by scoring 24 points.
