To comment on an old post, I believe it is because they are acting under a (not entirely unfounded delusion), that because some most of these sports are "American" and there are no larger or more renown leagues outside of the "NBA, NFL, and MLB" for their sports, that they feel the winners of those leagues should be called World Champions. This is a bit funny because they come across as incredibly conceited by basically saying any team any other country puts together will lose to this team (most of the time?).
