Flip several coins and you might correctly guess where LeBron James will play in 2018-19. Very little is known about where the best player in the NBA will play his 16th season.

A decision isn't likely to come soon, either. Various reports have linked LeBron to a number of different teams.

The Los Angeles Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Houston Rockets have been popular landing spots. A new team has now thrown its hat in the ring.

Well, kind of. A fan of the New Orleans Pelicans paid for a billboard in an attempt to coax LeBron to the Big Easy.

Check it out.

This is a clever play on the Cajun expression, "Laissez les bon temps rouler," which translates to, "Let the good times roll."

If the billboard seems familiar, that's because it was part of an ESPN piece that showcased what a billboard from every NBA city trying to lure in LeBron James would look like.

The artwork comes from artist Robb Harskamp.

Can the Pelicans land LeBron?
