LeBron James potentially bolting the Cleveland Cavaliers next summer to come to the thriving orchard of Philadelphia to join Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and the 76ers has been a hot-button topic in the City of Brotherly Love for a while.
The LeBron to Philly movement has now taken to the road and has reached the Cleveland area.
Cleveland area highways to be more specific.
ESPN's Darren Rovell shared images of three billboards outside of Cleveland, Ohio that he says were placed by a Philly-based company called Power Home Remodeling. The first featured LeBron's No. 23 next to 21, 25, 33, and 9. That's Embiid, Simmons, Robert Covington, and Dario Saric. No Fultz in the starting rotation next season either, I guess.
Subsequent billboards suggest "Complete the Process" and "#PhillyWantsLeBron."
It's unlikely one of the greatest players ever would be swayed by a thoughtful billboards but he could certainly be swayed by the continued development of Philly's two unicorns the remainder of this season and into the playoffs.
The Sixers will travel to Cleveland for a primetime matchup on Thursday. The Oscars air on Sunday night with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri up for Best Picture.
These well-timed Sixers billboards will surely create a little more buzz.
As of this past weekend, the Sixers were the fifth most likely landing spot for LeBron at +1000 behind Cleveland (+300), Houston (+350), LAL (+500), and Golden State (+600), according to OddsShark.
