Billboards recruiting LeBron James to Lakers will be placed around Los Angeles

LeBron James, Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have an upcoming meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers this upcoming weekend, which will bring LeBron James into the Staples Center for likely the final time this season. 

According to James H. Williams of The SoCal News Group, there is expected to be a few billboards put up around Los Angeles pushing James to sign with the Lakers this upcoming offseason in free agency.  

This move will be done in response to the Philadelphia 76ers fans putting up a couple of billboards last week attempting to recruit James to the franchise in free agency stating that he should “Complete the Process.” It provides the fans who put up the billboards an opportunity to not only poke fun at the 76ers but also present their own message to the four-time league MVP. 

Beyond this gesture from a few fans toward James, this will likely be the last opportunity this season for the Lakers to make an impression on the 33-year-old prior to the offseason. Los Angeles has been playing quite well as of late winning their first five games coming out of the All-Star break before dropping Monday’s contest against the Trail Blazers in disappointing fashion. 

In the last several months, it has become quite clear that there is a possibility that James could join the Lakers this upcoming offseason. There has been constant chatter surrounding this rumor that has only grown louder as the summer approaches. This talk will once again take center stage over the weekend with James in town.
