The LeBron billboard craze continues, but this time the billboard is essentially tolling LeBron and the previous billboards, not actually trying to pitch LeBron to come to their city in free agency.
About $6,000 was raised in a Go Fund Me account in Portland to purchase a billboard in the city that doesn’t exactly include the best recruiting pitch to King James…

Obviously the Blazers don’t have any chance of landing LeBron this summer as they will be over the salary cap this summer, and this is more of a homage to their own back court of Lillard and McCollum, but still pretty funny.
The money was raised by the members of the local Portland cultural group and fan website TrillBlazin, who were able to get funding from a lot of local Portland businesses and were able to put up the billboard in close proximity to the Moda Center where the Blazers play.
The billboard is set to be up until at least April 29, which also happens to be when a Game 7 would occur in round one of the NBA Playoffs.
Will the Blazers play into May this season? Lillard and McCollum will need to continue to play at an All-NBA level to do so.
