The iconic Lebron James banner in downtown Cleveland is….gone

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The iconic Nike LeBron James banner is down.

According to Sherwin-Williams, the banner hanging on the Global Headquarters Wall in downtown Cleveland started coming down at  8 a.m. Tuesday.

Following the removal, Sherwin-Williams said it is evaluating other options for the wall.

James’ agency announced Sunday that he will leave the Cleveland Cavaliers after agreeing to a four-year, $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 2,600-pound banner posted on the Sherwin-Williams Global Headquarters Wall was originally installed in 2014 when James returned to Cleveland from the Miami Heat.

Nike designed the mural, which shows James from behind.  He extends his arms outward as a puff of white powder lingers in the air.  “Cleveland” is boldly displayed on the back of his jersey.
