Suiting up for the Los Angeles Lakers will enable James to play for a franchise that boasts some of the game's greats, current president Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant included.

Love explained how he was out with his friends in the Hamptons when the announcement was made that James would sign a four-year, $153 million contract with the Lakers, and after seeing the news, he had to excuse himself from his group to make some calls.

'I thought I had learned a long time ago to never touch religion or politics, ' said Never.

It seems like James wants to slowly transition away from basketball while still utilizing his cult of personality, whether that be in movies, production, or elsewhere.

Of course, James will be judged on how he fares with the Lakers on the court rather than his acting chops off it. The mural - "The King of LA" - is gone. After 12 hours of work spanning more than two days, going through a bucket of paint and using more than 75 spray cans with graffiti specialist Fernando Valdez, Never's James mural was up last Friday featuring the message "The King of LA" on it.

An unknown vandal spray painted a yellow line across the mural over the weekend, adding the words "No King, ' 'LeFraud, ' and '3-6, ' the latter being a reference to James" lifetime record in the NBA Finals between his two tenures in Cleveland and one stint in Miami. "I guess it is never touch religion, politics or anyone against Kobe".

"I got a ton of support", Never said.

"I think people should be a little bit more...they should appreciate it a little bit more", area resident Jim Arocho said.

"I can't see anyone getting mad about the whole team", Never said of his next Lakers mural.
