Lakers Fan Using LaVar Ball’s Marketing to Attract LeBron James to Los Angeles


The Los Angeles Lakers have a busy remainder of the week ahead of them — not due to the three games they have starting tonight against Orlando — but the fact that it is their final opportunity during the season to make their pitch to woo upcoming free agent, LeBron James.

Just recently, fans in Philadelphia made the King of Akron feel welcomed when Power Home Remodeling, a Philadelphia-based company, purchased three billboards on I-480 in Cleveland. While this level of fawning is not uncommon, with LeBron headed to Los Angeles this weekend, a local attorney decided to join in on the courting process with billboards of his own. However, upon looking at the wording, it spawned a familiar spelling introduced by the Big Baller himself, LaVar Ball.


Laker fans are gearing up for the arrival of LeBron James this weekend with welcoming billboards.

The sign reads, “FORGET THE PROCESS, WE WIN BANNERS!” followed by the hashtag, #LABron. The spelling is unique and one LaVar unveiled months ago during various appearances when the subject of LeBron to LA was discussed. LaVar stated, “You can start spelling his name L-A-Bron…”, which is obviously a play on words, yet genius at the same time.

This goes to show while many people laugh and criticize LaVar Ball for his comments, they are clearly listening and taking notes. Watch one of the exchanges below where he affectionately dubbed LeBron as L-A-Bron.
