The buzz in Cleveland yesterday was all about 21 and the game winning streak the Indians kept going with a 5-3 win over the Tigers.
And of course a slightly bigger number, LeBron James—who wears number 23—weighed in on the streak.
James was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, so he’s all about the Cleveland sports scene. He and some of his Cavs teammates attended some of the Indians’ playoff games last season, and you can be sure they’ll do the same this year, especially given how well the team is playing.
So with the Indians having won an American League record 21 consecutive games James has been supportive of the team and seems to be pumped up about their chances of winning a title this year. After all, they were just a few base hits away from doing just that last season (or outs, depending on how you want to look at it).
James gave the Indians props, sending out an Instagram message saying he hopes the team goes on to win 40 straight.
Will that happen?
But as long as the Indians—who blew a 3-1 lead in the World Series—can win one more post season game than they did last season, LeBron and all of his fellow Clevelanders should be pretty pleased.
