World Series 2016 updates have come in about Cleveland Indians losing against the Chicago Cubs. The team reportedly blew a 3-1 lead which some are interpreting as Karma. This is because the Cleveland Cavaliers had beat the Golden State Warriors who blew a 3-1 lead against the team in the NBA 2016 Finals.
According to The Guardian, the Chicago Cubs have made history at the World Series 2016. They are first time winners for over a century now. The playoff has been labeled as historic by experts. However, things would not have felt the same had the Cubs defeated Cleveland quite easily.
As per several fans, this is Karma paying back Cleveland in the same coin. The team had earlier come out on top last season. This was after the infamous 3-1 series lead that the Warriors blew against them horrendously.
In the same light, LeBron James took a swipe at GSW at his recent Halloween Party. He had tombstone cookies of Warriors Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. A 3-1 Lead marker was a focal point of his decors as well.
Similarly, the Cubs were staring down the barrel at 3-1 and came out of it strongly. The playoff was as dramatic and nerve jerking as it could have been. However, both teams did transform the last month into a virtual celebration of sport.
SB Nation has talked of a now famous prediction made by Luke Walton. Walton did duty as head coach for the Warriors for a significant part of last season. He spent the rest of the season as lead assistant to Steve Kerr. He was also hugely involved with the Warriors’ performances last season.

This included the infamous 3-1 series lead that the Warriors absolutely blew against Cleveland. However, the team is now on the other side of the fence as well. Walton had taken a look at the 3-1 lead and famously stated that Cleveland would blow it. This turned out to be true and the Cubs turned out one of their most iconic performances in a long time.
Who knew that Walton’s predictions would come true? Such is the thrilling nature of the sport!
