Bulls fans put up billboard in Chicago for LeBron


Posted Jun 3 2010 6:25PM

CHICAGO (AP) -- Bulls fans are taking their sales pitch to LeBron James to another level -- like 30 feet off the ground.

The group behind the Web site SendLeBrontoChicago.com has paid for a billboard in downtown Chicago pleading with "King James" to leave Cleveland for the Windy City.

It reads "Chicago Wants LeBron Unfinished Business," with the Chicago skyline in the background and "LeBron" in Bulls red. In one corner are six trophies, one for each championship the Bulls won with Michael Jordan leading the way. A seventh trophy -- hint, hint -- is in another corner.

James is the top prize in a star-studded free agent bonanza that starts next month and the Bulls have enough salary cap room to offer a maximum contract.

SendLeBrontoChicago.com says on its website it may put up a second billboard in James' hometown of Akron, Ohio.
