CLEVELAND (AP) LeBron James hasn't had to make a decision this big in years.
The NBA superstar planned to attend Thursday night's playoff game between the New York Yankees and Indians along with his Cavaliers teammates, who were at several postseason games a year ago when the Indians got to the World Series.
Back in 2007, James came to Progressive Field for a postseason game wearing a Yankees cap, which he flaunted during the game. He was widely criticized in Cleveland for the move, which came three years before his infamous decision to announce he was leaving as a free agent for Miami on national TV.
James rooted openly in the playoffs last year for the Indians, speaking to the crowd before one game and flexing for fans in Game 7 of the World Series when Cleveland's Rajai Davis hit a game-tying homer in the eighth inning.
