Behind the scenes of ESPN’s coverage of Cavs at Bulls

Cavs star LeBron James arrives.

As part of the pregame hype for ESPN’s coverage of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ visit to Chicago to play the Bulls on Dec. 2, LeBron James donned a Chicago Cubs uniform. He paid of his World Series bet with friend and former Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade, who supported the Cubs while James backed the American League Champion Cleveland Indians.

Who knows what gear James will wear when he leads the Cavs into Madison Square Garden on Wednesday to take on the host New York Knicks (8 p.m. ET, ESPN)? It’s the opening game of an ESPN NBA doubleheader; the Golden State Warriors visit the Los Angeles Clippers in the nightcap (10:30 p.m.).
