One day before the NBA Finals is set to tip in the Bay Area, a racial slur was spray painted on the Los Angeles home of the league’s signature star, LeBron James.
According to the Associated Press, the N-word was spray painted on the front gate of James’ home in Brentwood. Per the report, it happened on Wednesday morning.
James’ Cleveland Cavaliers are set to take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night. It will be the seventh consecutive season in which James will have appeared in the Finals.
The Cavaliers star was reportedly not in the residence at the time of the incident, according to the AP. The report indicates that police are investigating the incident as an act of vandalism and a possible hate crime.
