Wildwood has now joined the ever-growing list of cities trying to attract Lebron James to their region.

A billboard stating "Philly wants Lebron James" can be seen on the eastbound side of Rio Grande Blvd leading into Wildwood. 

The trend started on Feb. 26 when three billboards were unveiled on the busy Interstate-480 outside Cleveland, each containing a message asking James to sign with the Philadelphia 76ers this summer as a free agent.

After that, four billboards were put up by a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles trying to lure James to the west coast with the hashtag #LABron.

Lebron James enters free agency this summer. A recent report said that James had been considering the Cavaliers, 76ers, Lakers and Rockets as landing spots.
