The ink is still fresh on LeBron’s 4-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, but the drama is at an all-time high. Just days after LeBron’s “King of LA” mural was defaced and restored pictures have surfaced of it being completely covered in white paint now.
This is truly not a welcome fit for a king. Twitter user @GodzoBall shared the photos on his timeline of the mural completely destroyed at this point and asked in the caption “What is wrong with people?” This is definitely not the response the Lakers were hoping for after landing the best player in the world. Some Lakers fan are sounding off against the actions of who they describe as a Non-Laker/Kobe fan.
Kobe fans this one, in particular, is making it very clear the LeBron James is not welcomed at all. But he doesn’t speak for Laker Nation who are just happy that their team is relevant again. Just yesterday thousands showed up to Blaze Pizza location in L.A. that threw a pizza party to celebrate the King coming to LA. Many showed up hoping to not only to score free pizza but to also see LeBron because fans speculated he might show up to enjoy the franchise’s —which he invested in—pizza with them.
LABron is off to a very rocky start but the King doesn’t seem to be bothered about it. He is currently active on his IG showing off his legendary workout routine getting ready for his Laker debut.
We are sure he knows this will all blow over when he starts doing LeBron things donning the Lakers iconic purple and gold. The one thing the Laker’s fans can all come together on is the dethroning of Golden State Warriors. Steph Curry just recently put the NBA on notice stating that even though the Lakers’ acquired LeBron the West still runs through them.
