Joe Maddon says LeBron James can play center field for the Cubs 'any time'

Last week, LeBron James showed up to the Cavaliers game against the Bulls dressed in a full Cubs uniform, following through on a friendly World Series wager he made with Dwyane Wade.

It was meant to be a joke, Wade gloating because the Cubs topped the Indians in seven games. But honestly, James looked pretty good in a baseball jersey -- like he'd fit right in manning the Wrigley outfield.

Joe Maddon, apparently, agrees. TMZ asked him about it at the Winter Meetings this week:

"He looked great," Maddon said. "He can play center field for us any time."

We'll start drawing up the contract.
