“No, not yet," Wade said when asked what the wager will be after Sunday's practice. "We’ll get there, though."

Wade is a Chicago native.  His Cubs will be playing in their first World Series since 1945.  James, an Akron, Ohio native and current Cleveland Cavs player will be rooting for the Indians.  Cleveland has not played in a World Series since 1997.  The city won an NBA Championship title over the summer.

Wade said he wasn't sure how big of an Indians fan James is, having previously been a Yankees fan before the switch.

"It’s mostly about pride in your city," Wade said. "I don’t know if it’s about all those things. Just pride in your city. Cleveland has obviously had droughts in sports and then he went back there to change that drought from the standpoint of basketball, and they accomplished that.

"And now Cleveland is trying to do the same, and they got to a World Series, which has been a drought for them. So [there's] excitement there for them. It’s there for the pride of their city. And excitement there for Chicago, the same thing. Obviously you guys have wrote about it, it’s great. They’re two franchises that have been struggling to get to the World Series, and this is what sports is about. It’s cool.’’
