Watch: Dwyane Wade Congratulates Cubs, Talks Bet With LeBron James

Dwyane Wade, a native of Chicago, congratulated the Cubs on ending their 108-year World Series drought, and let LeBron James know he remembers their bet.

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are friends. But when it comes to their favorite teams, the two do not agree. Wade, a native of Chicago, and LeBron, a native of Akron, made a bet whom would be the World Series victor.

The bet was that the loser had to show up at the other's home game in full Cubs or Indians gear. When the bet was made, the Indians had a one game lead and it looked like D-Wade was in trouble.

The Cubs came back from a 3-1 series deficit to win the World Series in an epic Game 7 that went into extra innings. Now, Wade wants James to pay up.

One month after the Cubs won the World Series, James will have to don a full Cub uniform when the Cleveland Cavs travel to Chicago to take on D-Wade's Bulls on December 2.
