A new billboard has arisen in the war of words over LeBron James — this one in Philadelphia.
Global Marketing Partners CEO James Betschel, working with BillboardsIn.com, has placed two billboards along Interstate 95 in Philadelphia near the Wells Fargo Center, home court for the 76ers. One reads “Noted King Hater,” and an arrow pointing to an image of Benjamin Franklin, and another reads “Philly Has a Bad History with Royalty.” The billboards went on display this morning.
A Philadelphia business placed three billboards along Interstate 480 in February suggested James, who will be a free agent after this season, sign with Philadelphia. Billboards were put up in Los Angeles last month suggesting James sign with the Lakers, and a banner also went on display in New York City last week suggesting James sign with the Knicks.
