FAIRFAX DISTRICT (CBSLA) – Less than a week after a LeBron James mural in Venice was vandalized, a second similar mural has gone up in the Fairfax District.
Earlier this month, a mural went up on the side of Baby Blue Barbecue at 444 Lincoln Blvd. in Venice almost immediately after James signed his new $154 million deal with the Lakers.
However, it drew the ire of some Lakers fans who don’t believe James has earned a mural yet. They vandalized it with messages including “We don’t want you,” “LeFraud,” “No King” and “3-6,” James’ record in the NBA Finals.
One of the artists initially repainted the mural, before removing it completely last week.
However, on Wednesday, a new LeBron James mural went up on Melrose Avenue and North Ogden Drive in the Fairfax District.
This one includes LeBron in a Lakers jersey, looking up at several Laker legends including Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain.
