Ever since LeBron James uttered the words "I'm taking my talents to South Beach," Clevelanders have been wondering what, if anything, would replace LeBron's gigantic Nike banner that had graced downtown in recent years.


A picture of Josh Cribbs?

Jimmy Dimora's mugshot?

According to the PD, Sherwin-Williams will hoist a skyline mural of Cleveland at night with the words, "Our home since 1886. Our pride forever."

Sherwin-Williams owns the building, the Landmark Office Towers where the company keeps its headquarters and about 2,000 employees. Since crews tore down James's image in July, the company has been considering options for the blank space, a wall designed to abut another tower than was never built.

"As we talked about the opportunity to put something up there, we thought about celebrating Cleveland," said Ellen Moreau, the company's vice president of marketing communications. "There are so many great things about Cleveland, so many reasons to be here. We're just really proud to be in the city."
