Yankees shade Indians with perfect LeBron tweet ahead of ALDS

Yankees shade Indians with perfect LeBron tweet ahead of ALDS

The ALDS has yet to begin, but the Yankees are already beating the Indians in the shade department.

On Thursday morning, the Bombers tweeted out a picture (along with their#PinstripePride hashtag) of a beaming LeBron James proudly holding up a Yankees hat while in the stands.

The photograph is actually from 10 years ago, during Game 1 of the 2007 ALDS between — you guessed it — the Yankees and Indians. It’s the last time the two teams met in the postseason, and Cleveland ended up winning the series, 3-1.

Of course, the Cavs superstar and Ohio native was singing a different tune last season, sporting Indians gear during the World Series against the Cubs, even pumping up the crowd before games.

Indians manager Terry Francona was asked before the matchup if he had spoken to James about which team he’d be cheering for.

“I had not remembered that, but I do now (laughter),” Francona replied. “I’m hopeful that he won’t be. How’s that? I don’t think I need to be telling LeBron what to do, but I think he’ll be rooting for the Indians.”

CC Sabathia wasn’t sure, either.

“Man, I dunno (who he’s rooting for),” Sabathia said with a laugh. “I know he’s a Yankees fan, but I think he has to put on a front for the city.”

We’ll see what hat he wears Thursday night if he’s in attendance at Progressive Field. The Cavs are currently home during the preseason, so there’s definitely a chance.
