Right now, the entire city of Cleveland is transfixed on the Indians. That includes the biggest star in the city.

Via Uninterrupted, LeBron James released a video congratulating the Indians on their record 21 game winning streak and shouted them out for playing at such a high level after last year’s World Series loss.

"I was about to say it's incredible,” James said. “But I want to come back and do another video when you all got like a 40-game winning streak. No pressure. No pressure, I get it. I've had my own 27-game winning streak in the NBA before. It's a lot of pressure winning every night."

Last year, the Cavs’ support of their baseball counterparts was one of the coolest stories of the year. At seemingly every game, James and the entire Cavs roster loudly supported the Indians from a suite. James said he’ll be back at the ballpark soon — while also asking star shortstop Francisco Lindor for a jersey — so it seems likely we’ll see the same Cavs support again. Maybe he’ll even be there if the Indians get to 40 wins.
