So you would assume by now that people in Ohio have gotten over it and moved on with their daily lives. Well, I guess you can say that’s not the case when a marketing company in Akron, Ohio decided to put up an anti-Lebron billboard.
We get more from NewsNet 5:
A billboard says “Welcome Home LeBron,” but there is a big red ‘X’ over home. The second line poses a question: “How does it feel to be a sidekick?,” a reference to James’ decision to join Dwayne Wade on the Miami Heat. Sidekick is underlined in red. The message then ends with “Go Cleveland!” in gold letters.
The Omada Group, a marketing company in Akron, paid $3,000 for the billboard, which is on Route 18 eastbound between I-71 and I-77, about two miles from James’ estate in Bath. The company paid about $3,000 for the billboard, which will be up for about a month.
Matthew Palumbo, one of the principals at the Omada Group, said he hopes the billboard sparks a grassroots campaign to let James know exactly where he stands in his home state since his decision to leave.
Geez, maybe that $3,000 dollars could have been spent on something else besides an anti-Lebron billboard.
