LeBron James is expected to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, and some Trail Blazers fans have launched a campaign to sell the king on Portland.

A billboard that went up on NE MLK Jr. Boulevard at Broadway reads “LeBron - Dame needs a third option."

James hasn’t expressed any of his intentions for next year, but he raised hopes of blazers fans last month, saying he'd love to play with Dame.

“He’s a super star, you know what I mean? And he’s showing it right now. Leading his team to where a lot of people didn’t think they’d be, you know, at the beginning of the season,” James said in an interview with KATU. "As the leader of the team he’s got those guys in a position to find the wins."

A satirical social media site known as "TrillBlazin" raised money for the billboard through a gofundme account. They are also using #bron2pdx2018 to get the word out about their campaign.
