When billboards were put up in Cleveland attempting to woo LeBron James to Philly, the obvious intention — other than publicity — was to get the King’s attention.
Well, mission accomplished. Here’s what James had to say about said billboards:
LeBron asked about those 3 Philly billboards, “I know all about it, there’s a lot of potholes on 480.” He then says he knows about them, and that it is flattering “that I’m sitting here at 33 in my 15th year … that people in their respective city want me to play for them.” pic.twitter.com/TrKUDbq34a— Ashley Bastock (@AshleyBastock42) February 27, 2018
This obviously means that LeBron is signing with the Sixers. Book it. Clear your calendars. Buy your season tickets. IT’S ALL HAPPENING!
On a serious note, LeBron isn’t even sure where LeBron is going so don’t get too excited (or upset). So, yes, the King has seen your cries and he appreciates them. Will it be enough to lure him to Philly? We’ll see.
