Mookie Betts’ 5-word response to LeBron James’ support
The surging Los Angeles Dodgers and superstar outfielder Mookie Betts already hold a one-game lead in the 2020 World Series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
With the Dodgers dismantling the American League champions in Game 1 on Tuesday evening, Betts quickly stole the show en route to quite literally doing it all for Los Angeles.
With Betts stringing together quite the memorable performance in Game 1, a fellow Los Angeles superstar was quick to praise the former Boston Red Sox standout.

With James now winning four NBA titles with three different franchises, his legacy as one of the best players is league history is all but cemented at this point. On the other hand, Betts is currently looking to join James as a 2020 champion from Los Angeles, though the longtime major leaguer has already captured a title as a member of the aforementioned Red Sox.
If the Dodgers can take four out of seven games from the Rays, Betts will own two World Series titles with two different clubs.
Currently serving as the National League champions as a result of the 2020 postseason and World Series, the top-seeded Dodgers initially took care of the Milwaukee Brewers in the wild card round and rival San Diego Padres in the NLDS before most recently edging out the red-hot Atlanta Braves in the NLCS.
