Unless you happen to be in Miami, I’m pretty sure that you didn’t get see the latest addition to a NBA 2K14 billboard done by street artist TMNK.
You can see the new-look billboard in the below photo:
The billboard is near the American Airlines Arena and Bleacher Report’s Ethan J. Skolnick has more on the reasoning behind the defacing from the street artist himself:
First, he scaled up to the billboard in the center of the parking lot which advertises the video game NBA2K14, which LeBron James endorses.
“Relatively uncomplicated,” TMNK told Bleacher Report by phone on Tuesday. Then he sprayed “Nobody,” using James’ head as the “o,” and adding “can stop me!”
Finally, on the lower left he sprayed “#RIPREEFA.”
The latter might require some explanation outside of South Florida. It refers to another street artist, a teenager whose real name was Israel Hernandez who died after police officers Tasered him in the chest in early August. According to the Miami New Times, more than 200 people rallied for “Reefa” on Sunday in Miami Beach.
