LeBron James left Cleveland for another title, and the Cavs have already unveiled his replacement.
King James left disappointed Cavs for the second time in his professional career. But, hey, he helped them win a championship, and that’s something you don’t forget.
It seems like Cleveland is ready to move on as they work on replacing his banner. They said ‘goodbye’ to the king of basketball for the second time in history, and this time there’s no turning back. LeBron will probably retire wearing a Lakers uniform.
But, Cleveland isn’t mad at him at all. That wasn’t the case in 2010. People were mad at their basketball idol for joining the Miami Heat.
Let’s go back to the banner. Officials will be replacing the large banner placed on the wall of the Sherwin-Williams global headquarters in downtown Cleveland. The banner was removed in July after LeBron announced his departure for Los Angeles.
Fans will now submit photos designed to show the Guardians of Traffic. “ALL FOR THE LAND” and “All for One. One for All” will be added to the banner. It will also have the Cavs’ “C” logo.
“Our goal was to create a meaningful offering of public art to celebrate The Land and all those who support and love this city and region. Our hope is that it stirs the emotion and sense of pride, community and celebration of our city in a personal way for those invested in The Land,” explained Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena CEO Len Komoroski.
“In addition to the banner being the perfect selfie backdrop for Cavs fans, Clevelanders and visitors who come downtown to enjoy all that The Land has to offer, the design provides the opportunity to engage everyone no matter where they live and no matter what their connection to our city and community is— our pride spreads far and wide.”
Should we say that LeBron’s name won’t be mentioned at all?
