Cops: Racial slur sprayed on LeBron James' Los Angeles home

Cops: Racial slur sprayed on LeBron James' Los Angeles home

Los Angeles police were called Wednesday to a home belonging to Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James to investigate a racial slur spray-painted on the front gate.

James spoke about the incident, which is being investigated as a possible hate crime, in a press conference scheduled for the opening of the Finals.

He added that, by the time officers had arrived at the scene, the offending word had been painted over by management staff.

Tennis Australia have said they will not rename the Arena, stating that Court's personal views are her own . I think it's a great thing when two people, regardless of their gender, find love and whatever".

James and the Cavaliers are now in the Bay Area as they continue to prepare for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, which will tip off on Thursday night just after 9 p.m. ET. But it just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America. "You know hate in America, especially for African-Americans, is living every day".

The house isn't James' main residence, and he might have been forgiven for refusing to let vandalism distract him from competing for an National Basketball Association title.

The 9,440-square-foot home is not James' primary residence.

She then broke twice in the third set and saved four break points while serving out the match in the tenth game of set three. I got a little bit frustrated in that third set, and I felt I could have done better with having a bit more perspective.

In 2015, James and his production company signed a developmental deal with Warner Bros. worth $15 million, an agreement that has him spending more time in Southern California. James spent several weeks in Los Angeles last summer working with his production company. He lives in Bath, Ohio.

After noting that the vandalism had intruded on "one of the greatest sporting events that we have", James said that if the incident keeps the conversation about racism alive, James said, "then I'm OK with it". "So this is kind of killing me inside right now".

Getting ready for Game 1 had already become a more daunting task with what happened.

A spokesman for the city's health department told AFP that as a result, over 50 people required medical attention. Cars were crushed and roads blocked by trees brought down by the storm.

"I look at my son being four years removed from driving his own vehicle and being able to leave the house on his own", James said. "Basketball comes second to my family". "At the end of the day they're safe, and that's the most important".
