"In recognition of fan interest, the company will keep the now-famous LeBron James banner hanging from its global headquarters building," Sherwin-Williams announced early Tuesday.
Sherwin-Williams' President and Chief Executive John Morikis said in a statement Tuesday that "For 150 years, Sherwin-Williams has been proud to call Cleveland our home, and we're committed to doing the right thing for the people of this great city. For the last year, we've been planning to hang a celebratory banner outside our building during the summer months.
"But what better way to celebrate our 150th year than with a NBA championship," he asked. "As a long-time supporter of the Cavs, and the entire community, we want the energy and excitement in this city to continue."
