If you’re in Cleveland heading towards the Q arena on Thursday night to watch the Cavs play there’s a good chance you’ll see the three billboards put up by a Philly home remodeling company trying to lure LeBron James to play for the Sixers.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell the three billboards will be up for the next three months and there’s a good chance LeBron will see or hear about them in that time span.


The 76ers will be in town to play the Cavaliers on Thursday night in a nationally televised game, but the team has nothing to do with the billboards, and can’t have anything to do with them, since that would be considered tampering. The billboards, which will be up for three months, were put there by Power Home Remodeling, a company based in Chester, Pennsylvania.

“We’re passionate about Philadelphia,” said Asher Raphael, the company’s co-CEO. “We have an amazing city, it’s the best sports town and it’s an awesome place to live. We think the best athletes should want to play here.”

“LeBron is in the conversation of being the best player of all time,” Raphael said. “We think if he comes to Philly, he gets a couple more championships.”

LeBron would instantly make the Sixers a championship contender if he joined but considering he could join any team he wants in the offseason it still makes it a longshot for him to join Philly.
