The Cleveland Indians have extended their historic winning streak to an American League-record 21 straight games, making them appointment viewing for any baseball fan.
One local fan who has taken notice is Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James, who turned his front-facing camera on and congratulated the team on their impressive run in a video for Uninterrupted.
“There’s no way I’d let another day go by without shouting out the home team Cleveland Indians,” James says to start the video. “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. But what you’re all doing, inspiring the youth, coming back after a devastating loss, big shout out. Keep it going.”
He ended the video by shouting out Francisco Lindor, dubbing the team the Cleveland “WINdians,” and assuring the team that he’d make it to the ball park for a game in the near future.

The Indians are back in action on Thursday night, looking to extend their streak to 22 games in a matchup against the Kansas City Royals.
