Sandy Buffie said she used 30 gallons of dryer lint, three gallons of glue and various recycled materials to create the sculpture that she has dubbed “LintBron.” The lint was gathered through donations of a gallon bag of lint from 30 people.
Buffie said it took her five weeks to build the statue. It now sits outside of her design studio in Cleveland.

She encourages people to stop by and rub LintBron’s head for good luck ahead of Friday’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.
Buffie made a similar sculpture last year, which she said helped LeBron’s Cavs win the basketball championship.
The Golden State Warriors lead the Cavs 3-0 in the NBA Finals.
