CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James is being dropped off a building.

Workers began dismantling the 10-story-tall iconic image of James on a mural in downtown Saturday, a billboard that has dominated the city’s skyline for years but is being taken down now that the superstar has left the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.

As strips of the image of James, his arms outstretched and head thrown back after doing his pregame powder toss, began coming off, pedestrians stopped on Ontario Street to take photos and cars pulled to the side for one last look at No. 23, who has gone from being a hometown hero to villain.

It is expected to take hours for the billboard on the side of the Landmark Office Tower to be taken down.
