Iconic LeBron James banner coming down for GOP convention

NBA Basketball

The iconic Nike banner of LeBron James in downtown Cleveland just got a makeover, but it won't be up for much longer.

The 10-story banner hangs outside of the Sherwin-Williams headquarters, located across from Quicken Loans Arena. Sherwin-Williams announced its intentions to take the banner down in favor of a company banner when the Republican National

Convention comes to town in July.

Sherwin-Williams' banner will be a red, white and blue image declaring "This land is our land," and will honor its 150th birthday in Cleveland.

City residents still have time to view the updated banner, which now features "Champions" across the top. Sherwin Williams says the updated version will stay up through July 4.

The mural will go back up in the fall, but the fact it is coming down at all has people furious. There's a Change.org petition calling for the banner to stay up, but it won't do anything as the company has already stated the banner is temporarily coming down.

Hillary Clinton's team apparently saw this controversy as an opportunity to gain some love in Cleveland as her press secretary tweeted on the issue.

Cleveland residents will surely continue to make their voices heard in hopes of keeping the banner up.
