Disgruntled Los Angeles Lakers Fans Keep Vandalizing a LeBron James Mural

Was this a Kobe fan?

Soon after LeBron James signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, a mural of the future NBA Hall-of-Famer went up outside of Baby Blues BBQ in Venice, California.

The Mural featured LeBron in his Laker jersey with the words “The King of L.A” on it. 

And then, quickly, someone vandalized it, writing things like “LeFraud,” “We don’t want you,” and “No King” on the mural. Jonas Never, the artist who painted the mural, fixed it.

And then it was vandalized again; the second time in five days.

Never talked to ESPN about the experience. And said he hasn’t given up on trying to honor the Lakers. Never said he’s going to do a mural featuring the entire Lakers team, saying “I can’t see anyone getting mad about the whole team.”

Early on Thursday morning, July 12, footage of a Laker fan throwing paint on the mural was leaked by Robert Kovacik, a reporter from LA. Watch the footage below.
