Recently, we sent out a tweet asking our followers to back an idea we had for a billboard inviting NBA basketball player LeBron James to be Damian Lillard's 3rd option on the Portland Trail Blazers.
This summer LeBron James enters free agency and we think he'd make a great addition to the team. You might be saying, but don't the Blazers already have the amazing CJ McColloum and the Bosnian Beast? Yes, they do, but you can't deny LeBron would be an irreplaceable asset as Dame's 3rd option.
LEBRON ON DAME
"That guy’s a superstar in our league and he’s showing it right now. He’s leading the team obviously where I don’t think a lot of people thought they’d be at the beginning of the season. But him as the leader of the team he has them in position to fight in the West.” - LeBron
We can't do this alone, so we're asking for your help. Our friends, family, followers, Blazer fans, Blazer bandwagon, and people that don't like the Lakers. If you want to see this come to life, please donate whatever you can and share with your followers.
TIMING: We want to get this billboard up as soon as possible, during the playoffs or close to the beginning of free agency.
GOALS: We've surpassed our initial goal of getting enough $ together to get a billboard put up near the Moda center. We're going for prime placement and timing now. We're going to get getting started on our first billboard, but keep donating and sharing. The more we raise the more advertising we'll introduce whether it's wheatpasting, transit ads, or sign holders in Cleveland outside of Quicken Loans arena. We've got some fun ideas planned.
You're making this happen.
"Billboard advertising costs roughly $1,500 to $4,000 in most small- to mid-size US cities" - FitSmallBusiness
"Vinyl is the standard material used for the ad itself because of its resistance to weather. Printing an advertisement on vinyl for a bulletin billboard (14’ by 48’, or almost 700 square feet of material) will cost between $300-$500." - FitSmallBusiness
