Clippers mural in LA defaced by apparent Lakers fan
With both Los Angeles NBA teams pushing for contention in 2020, it’s fair to say that the rivalry is escalating again. How can you tell? Murals and billboards being defaced is a pretty good indicator.
Some Clippers murals and billboards in the city have been tagged, with whoever did it using purple and gold paint and making it pretty clear they’re no fans of the Clippers.

This particular mural has “LWO” painted on it in Lakers colors. LWO could be an acronym for “Lakers World Order.”
The fact that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, a pair of Los Angeles-area natives, chose to come to the Clippers is definitely bothersome for some Laker fans. That, combined with the rivalry being what it is, is enough to inspire this sort of thing.
It’s worth keeping in mind that the shoe was on the other foot only a year ago. This is probably not the last of this we’ll see.
