While the young Washington Nationals superstar is in Cleveland facing off against the Cleveland Indians for a quick two game series he posted a picture to his Instagram account of the iconic LeBron James banner that sits right outside of Quicken Loans Arena.
Harper also included a touching caption for the picture saying what LeBron has done for the Cavaliers and the city of Cleveland "amazing."
"By far one of the coolest things I have ever seen! To see an athlete do what he does for his city not just on the court, but off the court in the city he grew up in is truly amazing!#witness"
LeBron James led the Cavaliers back from a 3-1 defecit–becoming the first team to do so–in the NBA Finals to beat the Golden State Warriors giving the city of Cleveland their first major sports championship since 1964.
Harper entered the MLB, much like LeBron entered the NBA, a teenager with a load of talent and expectations. LeBron was able to exceed the high expectations and deliver his city a championship. While Harper has showed he is one of the most talented players in the Major Leagues time will only tell if he can lead his team to the promised land.
