- Updated: October 7, 2016
After the Cleveland Indians won a thrilling Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday, a few members of the defending 2015-16 NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers were at Progressive Field on Friday across the street from Quicken Loans Arena to pump up the crowd before Game 2.
Cavs superstar small forward LeBron James was joined by teammate and fellow small forward Richard Jefferson, forward Channing Frye, point guard Mo Williams, small forward Dahntay Jones and the still-unsigned shooting guard J.R. Smith.
With all six wearing Indians gear, James immediately got on the microphone and praised the Cleveland faithful.
“Cleveland, wow. You guys are unbelievable. Cleveland, let me hear you,” James said to a sold-out crowd at Progressive Field.
“Just like you guys were behind our back for our championship run, we all have to rally together for their championship run tonight for Game 2. Always believe something, Cleveland. It’s always us against the world,” James said. “Cleveland against the world. Let’s go!”
Check out the video from before Game 2 below, as it should certainly give any Cleveland sports fan goosebumps.
