The billboard-for-LeBron movement has hit the city of Portland.

As Trillblazin The Brand shared on Twitter, a billboard has been raised in the efforts to convince the four-time MVP to join Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum on the Portland Trail Blazers:

Trillblazin. The Brand @TRILLBLAZIN

πŸ”₯#BRON2PDX2018 LOOK ALIVE, LOOK ALIVE πŸ”₯ . MLK & BROADWAY https://t.co/UYHiXsTiHG https://t.co/OPxnnvE5KN

Tim Brown of The Oregonian noted Trillblazin started a GoFundMe campaign on March 15 and drew donations from local businesses such as Poler Stuff and Stumptown Coffee Roasters, as well as the band Portugal The Man.

Trail Blazers fans aren't the only ones to attempt to convince James,Β who has a player option on his contract following this season, to either come to or stay in their city. Billboards have been raised in Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Cleveland for the superstar.
