A Pennsylvania company is using billboards to catch LeBron James' attention, and Cavs fans may not be too happy about it.
Power Home Remodeling, based out of Chester, PA, bought three strategically located billboards, in an effort to get LeBron to consider calling Philly home next season.
The billboards are seven miles from Quicken Loans Arena and drivers on I-480 won't be able to miss them.
The first sign features #23 (LeBron's jersery number) in maroon with a crown on it. The other four numbers on the court are blue and belong to Philadelphia 76ers players: Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric and Robert Covington.
A few feet down the road you'll pass the second billboard which says "Complete The Process."
The last one gets right to the point and says "#PhillyWantsLeBron."
The billboards will be up there for a while, the company paid for three months but the 76ers get to see the company's handiwork when they come to town Thursday to play the Cavs.
LeBron could become a free agent if he opts out of his contract after this season.
He could re-sign for a lucrative, long-term final contract with the Cavs, or sign as a free agent with another team that has space to offer him a max contract.
Co-CEO Asher Raphael released the following statement:
"Philadelphia is Power's hometown and we love this city. We believe that all top talent - no matter the industry - should want to live and work here. These billboards were done all in good fun and as a reflection of our culture; we work really hard but have fun along the way."
Cleveland19 wanted to know what Cavs fans think of the billboards.
“Maybe you have to try a little harder!” said Taylor Dunlap, laughing.
“Stay here, we love you LeBron, don't go!” she said.
Dunlap doesn't think the billboards will be enough to sway LeBron.
And Kay Roth can't bear to think of the Cavs without him.
“He's outstanding, we don't want to lose him,” Roth said.
“He loves Northeast Ohio. He's a gift and a treasure for Northeast Ohio,” he said.
Cavs fan Nick Buccieri doesn’t want to see LeBron go either.
“We lose him that's our season. If they get him they get a chance to win it. So if I had money to do it, I might try something like that too,” he said.
But Buccieri is willing to strike a deal with sports fans in the City of Brotherly Love.
“We can take Wentz, maybe Browns turn it around. They can have LeBron if we get Wentz, how about that?” he said.
The 76ers will be here in Cleveland playing the Cavs again this Thursday night.
