Pic: Chicago Wants LeBron [Billboard]

| June 2, 2010 | 1 Comment


A handful of dedicated Bulls stans fanatics put their money together in conjunction with the Send LeBron To Chicago website and copped this billboard for two weeks on the corner of Grand & LaSalle.  That’s some prime real estate.  

Simply stating that we have some “unfinished business” and alluding to the need for another trophy, the billboard is definitely turning heads and garnering attention.  Let’s hope King James gets the memo.  He’s got the internets going nuts.  No Paul Wall, baby.

 Keep up the good work, fellas.  Follow the Chicago Bron gang on Twitter.
