The massive LeBron James banner hanging in downtown Cleveland is being removed again following the superstar’s announcement he’s leaving the city.
The 10-story billboard, which shows James wearing his No. 23 jersey with his arms spread wide, has become a city landmark. It was also removed in 2010 when he decided to join the Miami Heat. On Sunday, James agreed to sign a four-year, $153 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.
A spokesman for Sherwin-Williams, which owns the building where the banner hangs, said Nike is taking the banner down later this week. Sherwin-Williams is evaluating what to do with the wall on its global headquarters.
After learning the billboard was coming down, some people headed over to take photos in front of it.
Cleveland fans are recovering from losing James for the second time. His jerseys have been reduced by 40 percent in the Cavs’ team shop at Quicken Loans Arena.
