Most Lakers fans are pretty excited about LeBron James joining the team. However, some fans evidently don't want him in town, and have now defaced yet another LeBron James mural.

Shortly after LeBron made the decision to sign with the Lakers, a local artist put up a mural that read "The King of LA" with James in his new uniform.

It didn't take long before the first LeBron James mural was defaced. The vandals spray painted over James' mouth, along with messages about his 3-6 NBA Finals record, and messages about not wanting LeBron on the team.

The mural was eventually fixed, with the "of" taken out. However, it has since been taken down altogether.

A second LeBron James mural went up, one that most assumed would be seen as more respectful to Lakers history.

In the new mural, LeBron is looking up at legendary Laker figures, like Current team president Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal. Many of the players are depicted holding the Larry O'Brien Trophy. The mural makes it look like something that LeBron can seek to attain with the Lakers, rather than him being anointed already.

And yet, someone still took some paint to this new mural.

While defacing the first LeBron James mural was ridiculous, one could understand the gripes with the messaging.

This one seemed like it should be very agreeable for any Laker fan. And yet, some people are never happy.
