There’s fallout surrounding a billboard that recently went up in the area where LeBron James grew up in Akron.

It says: “You’re welcome, LeBron. Love, Miami.”

The billboard was reportedly paid for by Dan Le Batard. He hosts a sports talk show on a Miami radio station along with a national television show on ESPN.

Le Batard said it was all in fun, but ESPN didn’t think so. In a statement to FOX 8, ESPN said:  “Dan LeBatard will be off the air for two days, returning Monday. His recent stunt does not reflect ESPN’s standards and brand. Additionally, we were not made aware of his plans in advance.”
