Ohio has LeBron James once again, but Miami Heat fans aren't going to let Cleveland Cavaliers supporters forget where the superstar won his rings.
This billboard was spotted recently in Akron, Ohio. Not only does it troll James and Cavs fans, but check out the font used at the top. A message written in Comic Sans? Nice touch.
Update: Aug. 7 at 4:22 p.m. ET
Dan Le Batard was indeed behind the billboard. The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reported that ESPN has suspended Le Batard for his role in the stunt:

... An ESPN statement says Le Batard's "recent stunt does not reflect ESPN's standards and brand. Additionally, we were not made aware..."— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) August 7, 2014
... of his plans in advance. Le Batard said all of this was "meant in fun. it's just fun anarchy." He returns to TV and radio show Monday.— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) August 7, 2014
End of Update
Of course, talk show host and Miami fan Dan Le Batard recently tried to put the same message on a full-page advertisement in a couple of Ohio newspapers. However, he wasn't able to pull it off.
