Not picture perfect: Second James mural in LA defaced

A second mural of LeBron James in Los Angeles has been defaced.

No matter how the picture is painted, the message is clear — some fans in Los Angeles are simply not going to accept LeBron James as a Laker.

For the second time since James signed as a free agent with the Lakers, a mural depicting him has been defaced.

The first attempt proclaiming James as the “King of LA” was almost immediately defaced. When the artist cleaned the damage and altered it to read, “King in LA,” it didn’t help — it was damaged a second time.

Eventually, the artist gave up and painted over his work.

A second attempt, which portrayed James looking up at likenesses of Lakers legends Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain and Chick Hearn posed above the Staples Center and the Great Western Forum wasn’t enough to appease everyone as white paint was splattered over James on Saturday.
