At least one person in Los Angeles doesn't appear to be a fan of LeBron James' arrival to the Lakers. A "King James" mural in the Los Angeles area has been vandalized.

A LeBron James-inspired mural went up in the L.A. area a couple of days ago. The mural, which is located in Venice, Calif. featured the words:

"The King of L.A." with a big painting of LeBron in a Lakers jersey.

One Lakers fan on Twitter was offering up a $300 reward for anyone who destroyed it, saying LeBron didn't deserve it yet:

The mural appears to have been vandalized. New photos on Twitter show the mural being spray-painted over in yellow ink with things like "3-6," No King," and "We don't want you." Check it out:

Welp. There were surely be plenty of more LeBron James-inspired artwork to go up in the Los Angeles area over the next three to four years. Hopefully the new ones can stay clean moving forward.

LeBron, meanwhile, will speak publicly about his decision to come to the Lakers at the end of the month. He's set to make his first public appearance since making his free agency decision at the end of July at a charity event in Ohio.
