Massive LeBron James banner in downtown Cleveland to be replaced

The giant banner featuring LeBron James' image in downtown Cleveland will be taken down from its current location later this week.
The iconic 10-stories-tall mural is being removed this week and replaced with a new one that includes a gold patch of the Larry O'Brien Trophy on the back of James' uniform to represent the Cavaliers winning the NBA title last season, ending Cleveland's 52-year championship drought.
The new banner is expected to be installed by Friday. The Cavs open their season against the New York Knicks on Oct. 25, when the players will receive their championship rings and a title banner will be unveiled in the rafters of Quicken Loans Arena.
While we can't say for certain, it seems safe to assume that fans of the Wine and Gold won't have anywhere near as big of an issue with this change as they did when LeBron's banner was set to be temporarily removed during the Republican National Convention that took place earlier this summer.
