The latest LeBron James billboard has been erected in his very own hometown.


When making his free agency decision this summer, could LeBron James channel his inner Dorothy?

That’s what Akron relator Alison Baranek is hoping.

Baranek, whose Twitter account says has sold more than $110 million in Akron real estate in the last six years, erected a billboard at the White Pond exit on I-77 urging James to remain with the Cleveland Cavaliers when he can opt out of his current contract this summer. Featuring basketball sneakers-turned-ruby slippers, Baranek’s billboard reads: “LeBron, there’s no place like home” and “#ThisIsHome.”

This, of course, isn’t the first time a billboard has been built in an attempt to recruit LeBron.

Last month, 76ers fans posted billboards in Cleveland urging James to come to Philadelphia. Local businesses then bit back with signs retaliating against the Sixers in Lake County and Downtown Cleveland.

When the Cavs visited Los Angeles on a West Coast road trip earlier this week, James was met with billboards recruiting him to join the Lakers.
