Can I Get a Witness?

You have Nike to thank for downtown’s 110-foot LeBron-zilla, who looks as if he’s about to dunk a basketball through the side of the Sherwin-Williams building. Located a full-court buzzer shot, or two, away from Quicken Loans Arena, the shoe giant’s billboard and its “We Are All Witnesses” tag line immediately makes you want to take out a second mortgage for season ticket cash. The image of “The Chosen One” was captured by Associated Press photographer Mark Duncan during a first-quarter breakaway Nov. 15, 2003, against the Philadelphia 76ers. For those keeping stats, the billboard is 212 feet wide, is made from 23,553 square feet of mesh and weighs 2,700 pounds.
