LA mural showing LeBron James in Lakers uniform vandalized
Most Lakers fans are hoping LeBron James can help snap a streak of disappointing seasons and bring the franchise another Larry O’Brien Trophy, but there are apparently some folks in Los Angeles who want nothing to do with the four-time NBA MVP.
Not long after LeBron announced that he will sign with the Lakers, famed L.A. artist Jonas Never painted an impressive mural crowning James the new king of the city.
Unfortunately, the mural was vandalized by one or more fans who don’t want see LeBron in a Lakers uniform. The culprit or culprits spray-painted things like “WE DONT WANT YOU” and “3-6,” which is a reference to LeBron’s overall record in the NBA Finals.

The graffiti didn’t last long, however. Never shared an update on Sunday showing that he had touched up his work and it looks as good as new:
If you read what we shared with you about the demand for LeBron’s new jersey, it’s easy to get the impression that most Lakers fans are excited for what the future holds. While it goes without saying that not everyone has to feel that way, ruining an artist’s hard work is completely uncalled for.
