LeBron James framed his return to the Cavaliers around his devotion to Northeast Ohio.
But with the Indians set to begin a playoff series against the New York Yankees, the Yankees sent a reminder:
In 2007, during his first stint with the Cavs, LeBron infamously wore a Yankees hat to a Yankees-Indians playoff game in Cleveland.
He seems to still be a Yankees fan, but I don’t expect him to be as overt in his rooting interest this time around. It’d work against his branding.
But the Yankees clearly aren’t letting LeBron’s fandom go understated.
