Artist paints over LeBron James mural after vandalized

LeBron James will have an input when it comes to player acquisitions at the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Magic Johnson.

However, there is a subsection of Lakers fans who are a bit conflicted about James coming to town: Kobe Bryant stans.

"I think that (James) had analyzed our roster", Johnson said. "I guess it is never touch religion, politics or anyone against Kobe".

In one since-deleted Twitter post, a Lakers fan offered $300 to anyone who defaced the mural. The mural - "The King of LA" - is gone.

Some legal experts believe it would be hard for the government to convince an appeals court to overturn Judge Leon's ruling. The merger, first announced in October 2016, was also opposed by US President Donald Trump .


The damage was nothing that couldn't be fixed, and within a few hours, the mural was restored with one minor change: The word "of" was removed.

Forward Kevin Love appeared at Sports Illustrated's "Fashionable 50" event on Thursday night and was asked about his reaction to James' move to the Lakers. But someone didn't take kindly to its "the King of LA" message, and the painting was vandalized less than two days after it was completed.

Not long after James committed to the Lakers in free agency on July 1, Never chose to work on a James mural.

Never says the reactions to his mural were mixed, overall.

"We saw that LeBron and Miami struggled for the first two months or so when he was in Miami, then they finally got together and they were a championship-caliber team".

"I don't know if it's LeBron haters or Kobe fans or just someone who wants attention", Never said while painting over the mural. "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".

While Never doesn't know for sure who vandalized his art, he said there wasn't a hint of anyone claiming responsibility following the second time it was vandalized, leaving the artist at a loss when he tried to make sense of it all.
