A video obtained through a public records request by the Plain Dealer shows early designs for Cleveland's new casino. The video was shown to the Ohio EPA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in a meeting on October 21 because Dan Gilbert wants to narrow the Cuyahoga River "to give the casino an extra 29 feet of space along 686 feet of bulkhead," according to the PD.

As the presentation shows the casino, it also shows downtown Cleveland, including... yes... the LeBron billboard. That has to sting every time Dan Gilbert watches it.

Here's the screenshot. Video below that.
