Will LeBron James Trust the Process?
LeBron James, who is scheduled to become a free agent this summer, will be one of the league’s most pursued players this summer.
What team wouldn’t want to add a four-time MVP, three-time Finals MVP, and 14-time All-Star?
The Philadelphia 76ers are definitely one of those teams. Earlier today, a Philadelphia-based company put up three billboards in downtown Cleveland, in an effort to entice James to the team this summer.

The first billboard illustrates a basketball court with LeBron’s jersey number (23) with a crown on top, symbolizing that he is “The King.” He joins the jersey numbers of current Sixers players, Ben Simmons (25), Robert Covington (33), Joel Embiid (21), and Dario Saric (9).
The other two billboards read “Complete the Process” and “#PhillyWantsLeBron”.
It’s unknown now whether LeBron would consider joining the Sixers this offseason. However, they are a young up-and-coming team with two other potential superstars in Embiid and Simmons. There are one of the league’s most improved teams, already surpassing their win total from last season and currently sitting in the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference.
It’s hard not to admire the Sixers’ and Philadelphia’s efforts in enticing the greatest player of this generation to sign with them. Whether it works or not remains to be seen. It’ll be an interesting five months, that’s for sure.
Trust The Process.
