The Sixers are already considered among the favorites to potentially lure the superstar free agent to-be away from the Cavaliers, and one local business has tried to woo LeBron with billboards in Cleveland, a move the King called "flattering."
Cleveland countered with a billboard of their own, but the Sixers' newest competitor for James' services is an unlikely suitor: The Phillies' Triple-A minor league affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
Another new billboard, which has gone up over the American Parkway Bridge in downtown Allentown, asks LeBron to consider a season playing minor league baseball in Bacon, USA.
Hey, laugh all you want, but don't forget Michael Jordan spent a season in Double-A before coming back to win three more NBA championships. One season at Coca-Cola Park followed by three titles for the Sixers doesn't sound so bad, does it?
