LeBron banner could rise again in Cleveland (Yahoo Sports)

A 10-story tall LeBron James could tower over downtown again. Sherwin-Williams Co. has asked the city for approval to hang a new banner of James on its headquarters across the street from Quicken Loans Arena, the Plain Dealer reported Tuesday. The banner is similar to the iconic one that was in place for years before being taken down after James signed with the Miami Heat in 2010. The city’s planning commission released an image of the banner, which has a likeness of James, his arms outstretched and wearing a jersey that says ”Cleveland” on the back, beneath a cloud of chalk dust, which he tossed into the air as part of his pregame ritual when he previously played for the Cavs.

Amusement park won’t rename coaster ‘King James’ (Yahoo Sports)

Ohio’s Cedar Point amusement park is partnering with the LeBron James Family Foundation instead of renaming a roller coaster for the basketball superstar. The Sandusky park had vowed to rename a coaster ”King James” if the four-time NBA MVP returned home to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, which he did. Cedar Point says park officials and James decided the partnership announced Tuesday will have greater impact than renaming a ride. Cedar Point has said James was a frequent visitor while he was growing up in Akron and playing in Cleveland.

Holiday, Anderson gear up as Pelicans camp nears (Yahoo Sports)

Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday has been feeling the best kind of pain this week – that general muscle soreness that comes from finally playing the sport he loves again. Sharp-shooting forward Ryan Anderson will have that same feeling in a week or so, and he can’t wait. ”Next week I should be able to play with the guys,” said Anderson, who needed surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck. I’m not really hesitant about it.” It has been a long wait for the prominent pair of Pelicans to get back on the court in a 5-on-5, full-speed environment.
