CLEVELAND — One year ago, LeBron James' banner came tumbling down in Cleveland.

Sportscenter posted the memory on Instagram and the King himself responded.

"Billboards and banners(unless it’s a championship banner) come and go but how you made them feel while it was up will live on forever," James said.

James led the Cavaliers to their first championship in 2016.

The banner became a fixture of pride for Clevelanders and people visiting downtown and was a reflection of excitement and revival happening across the city.
