ESPN suspends Dan Le Batard for LeBron James billboards

It’s been a bad week for ESPN personalities. First Stephen A. Smith was suspended for four shows due to comments made on the Ray Rice situation. Now, ESPN radio host Dan Le Batard will be suspended two shows by ESPN because of his latest troll efforts in regards to LeBron James’ return to Cleveland.

What exactly did Le Batard do? After failed attempts of placing an ad inside the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Dan took his talents to the billboards, placing severals adds in the city of Akron, Ohio in which he trolls LeBron by implying that Miami is the reason he is a two-time NBA champion. Le Batard even threw in a dash of comic sans as homage to the popular Dan Gilbert letter about James from four years back.

It’s an odd suspension from ESPN, but it’s clear they don’t want to be connected with this type of trolling. Guess Le Batard will have to stick to the hilarious radio rants–that’s if the Miami Heat are successful without LeBron.
