Well, LeBron has made good on his bet with Dwyane Wade.

The Cavaliers star rolled up to the United Center in Chicago for his game against the Bulls on Friday wearing a full Cubs uniform—a jersey, pants and socks—after his hometown Cleveland Indians fell to Chicago in the World Series. Before the series, he and Wade, his former teammate, agreed to a friendly wager that would require the loser to wear a full uniform to a future meeting between their teams.

The Indians lost in seven games, giving up a 3–1 series lead and allowing Chicago to win its first championship since 1908.

James didn’t wear cleats, though, or bring a glove.

“I got a basketball game to play,” he said at shootaround on Thursday. “No glove. Just the uniform. I will be in uniform.”
