LeBron James has officially been a member of the Los Angeles Lakers for a couple of weeks now. He signed his four-year, $153 million contract with the L.A. franchise earlier this month. Some are already calling him the greatest player to ever wear a Lakers jersey.

There have been several LeBron Lakers murals to go up in the Los Angeles area. Unfortunately, they continue to be vandalized.

It's unclear who exactly is vandalizing these murals - some are saying it's Kobe Bryant fans, others are saying it's fans of other teams - but they continue to be spray-painted over.

The Lakers' owner, Jeannie Buss, has a message for those people that are destroying the LeBron James murals.

She thinks it might be Celtics fans.

"They’re not Laker fans," she said. "I guess I just didn’t realize how many people from Boston live in Los Angeles."

LeBron, meanwhile, has yet to officially comment on his decision to join the Lakers. He's shown up at Summer League to support some of his new teammates and has posted on social media about his decision to come to Southern California, but that's all we've gotten so far.

That should change later this month. LeBron is set to show up at a charity event in Ohio where he's expected to speak to reporters. We'll get some LeBron-Lakers comments then. Perhaps he'll be asked about the LeBron-Lakers murals that continue to be put up around town.
