CLEVELAND - It is 10 stories tall, weighs 1.3 tons and is one of the top ten largest wall banners in the country.
"It" is, of course, the famous LeBron James banner that hangs on the side of Sherwin Williams' headquarters just off Public Square in downtown Cleveland.
And after the Cavs won the NBA Championships this year, the banner had to be updated: to include the gold championship patch that now adorns the back collar of LeBron's jersey.
The updated banner was installed in time for the Cavs home opener (and Game 1 of the World Series) on Tuesday, October 25th.
And thanks to Sherwin Williams, we can watch the old banner come down and the new one go up...in time-lapse video!
Some more facts about the banner:
The new version took 15 gallons of ink to print.
It takes 15 people to fold and move the banner.
It took 10 people 12 hours to install.
15 people spent 300 hours creating, manufacturing, transporting and installing the banner.
