LeBron to Philly rumors reach new heights in Cleveland

LeBron to Philly rumors reach new heights in Cleveland

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.

Kevin Hart uses curious recruiting tactic to get LeBron to Philly


Kevin Hart uses curious recruiting tactic to get LeBron to Philly

Kevin Hart is one of the most well-known Philadelphia sports fans in the world.

He made a scene at the Super Bowl while showing support for the Eagles.

So it's no surprise when TMZ asked him about LeBron James and his 76ers, Hart lit up a bit, even going so far as to say he has already attempted to recruit him to Philly.

"I sent him $40. He didn't accept it," Hart said. "I really did try. I sent him 40 dollars and I said come to Philly."

"He said, 'kiss my ass!'"

"I don't think he's going anywhere," Hart added.

Probably not if $40 is the best we as a city have to offer.

Loser Colin Cowherd pays off bet, wears Sixers jersey


Loser Colin Cowherd pays off bet, wears Sixers jersey

The Philadelphia 76ers as a team, and Joel Embiid specifically, reminded the world last night that FS1's Colin Cowherd is quite often full of it when they won their 40th game of the season.

We wrote about this last night when Jojo poked fun at Cowherd for his preseason assertion that Sixers wouldn't sniff 40 wins. But today Cowherd held up his end of the preseason bet by rocking a No. 21 Sixers jersey during his The Herd show.

Cowherd's co-host Kristine Leahy posted video of the frequently wrong analyst admitting he'd lost and saying he'd own up to it, eventually.

"I'd love to have [Embiid] on this show anytime he wants," Cowherd said today. "I made a bet. I lost. I'm not going to welch."

But then he spoke about not being able to find a jersey that fit while Leahy was wearing one that would clearly fit him. They eventually found one and he put it on.

"They deserve love," Cowherd said.

Winning sure feels good. All kinds of winning.
