The city of Los Angeles has a chance to claim its second professional sports championship of the month, and LeBron James is all about it.
James and the Lakers captured the NBA title 10 days ago. Last night, the Dodgers won Game 1 of the World Series, an 8-3 takedown of the Tampa Bay Rays.
By the looks of his Twitter account, King James was locked in to the game. He shared a message to the Dodgers after last night’s win, shouting out a couple of players in the process.
“1 down! [Clayton Kershaw] was himself (which is AMAZING), Mookie Betts did it all, Cody Bellinger went yard again and the whole team was simply damn good! #OnToTheNextOne,” James wrote.

If the Dodgers close out the series, it will be the first time Los Angeles will hold the MLB and NBA titles at the same time since 1988-89.
The Dodgers won the World Series in October 1988, while the Lakers were the defending champions after defeating the Detroit Pistons in the NBA Finals in June of that year.
Game 2 of the 2020 World Series will get underway tonight at 8:08 p.m. ET on FOX.
