Published Add your comment

The city of Cleveland has had a lot to celebrate over the summer and now, it seems they are going to honour their favourite native in a big way.

Often when a team goes through a transitional summer period, there are as many ups as there are downs.

That doesn't seem the case for the Cleveland Cavaliers however as NBA star after NBA star have arrived in Ohio this summer.

It all began with arguably the NBA's biggest player LeBron James returning to the team after four years of success with the Miami Heat.

Following LeBron's example, Kevin Love, Shawn Marrion and a large amount of expectations all made their way to Cleveland.

The city of Cleveland has had a lot to celebrate and now it looks like they've found a way to show their excitement of the upcoming NBA season.

The city are replacing the banner they tore down years ago as the second LeBron James banner is set to be strung up over downtown Cleveland.

The city's planning commission has approved the artwork to be created which is said to be a 10-story high banner of the NBA superstar.

It will hang across the street from the Quicken Loans Arena - the home of the Cavaliers and will show James with his arms wide open and the name of the city on the back of his jersey.

Fixing a mistake

The city once had a banner of James hanging during his first stint with the Cavaliers and now they're replacing it with a new one after they took it down.

LeBron opted out of his Miami contract earlier this year and caused havoc around the NBA along with his fellow member of the 'Big 3' Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.

Now it appears that LeBron has helped to shape a new NBA 'Big 3' this time situated in Cleveland.

He along with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving are expected to be the main reason for the Cavaliers upcoming success this season.
