LeBron James mural vandalized AGAIN prompting artist to whitewash it

The news of LeBron James' signing with the Lakers surfaced on the first day of free agency, but it took almost two weeks for Magic Johnson to reveal the conversation that sealed the deal for James to join Los Angeles.

Never spoke to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk and said he's learned a valuable lesson.

"I guess it is never touch religion, politics or anyone against Kobe", Never cracked.

From featuring lovely gold jerseys to adding thin stripes on the sides, the Lakers have absolutely perfected their appearance.

While the Lakers" president of basketball operations is very confident about the pieces added around James, he believes it will take "probably closer to two months' for the new signings to learn how to play alongside the young core.

Kerber defeats Williams to win Wimbledon
In a stunning upset, the 7-time Wimbledon champion lost the final to Angelique Kerber of Germany in 2 sets: 6-3, 6-3. When Williams made another mistake to lose the next game, she gestured to her coaching team with a look of despair.

However, there was also a vocal minority (read: Kobe fans) who were upset by the sentiment.

LeBron James recently joined the Lakers, and fans are already trying to run him out of town, kind of.

Despite that turbulent first year, Love met with James in Los Angeles after the season and committed to stay with the Cavs by signing a long-term contract. But when fans are going on social media and courting vandals with cash rewards, it's clear things have gone too far.

The issue, as Never sees it, stems from the murals original caption, which declared James the 'King of L.A'. 'The first vandalism was made easier to swallow because, by all accounts from the Twitter debate [over it] that we saw, it looked like a guy offered up a $300 bounty to anyone who destroyed the mural.

"LeBron is one of my favorite athletes, I actually just did a movie called 'Smallfoot.' We both did this animated film together". "He was really happy that Rob and I were not rushing, not making mistakes by rushing, and I told him that we had a three-year plan, we had a plan that we wanted to execute and that he could really take that plan to a whole 'nother level".
