Promising basketball star LaMelo Ball is getting an All-Star welcome to Cleveland—a billboard and all.
On Tuesday, Ball announced he is going back to high school where he will be attending Spire Institute in Geneva for his senior year.

Located on I-90 near the Ontario Street exit, the billboard resembles the LeBron James banner that covered the Sherwin William's building across from Quicken Loans Arena for years.
There's an excitement surrounding his return to high school basketball and his possible future basketball career in the NBA.
Ball was ranked as a five-star prospect in the class of 2019, but withdrew from Chino Hills High School in California last October. He and his brother, LiAngelo, then signed with BC Vytautas in Lithuania, according to an ESPN report.
