LeBron James has officially been a member of the Los Angeles Lakers for a couple of days.

Even if some in Los Angeles haven't been welcoming to James and some others have been arguably too welcoming, James is already taking a shine to Hollyood.

With James signing a four-year, $153 million to play for the Lakers, the possibility existed that Never would be repairing the mural for the foreseeable future.

On Wednesday, an L.A. news anchor shared a surveillance video of the mural being vandalized once again by one of James' fellow Angelenos.

Undeterred, Never painted over the vandalism and tried to modify his message by removing the "of" from "the King of LA", making it less a declaration of James's status in his new digs and more a nod to his nickname.

"I think it was a necessary chapter for his growth and winning those titles, winning the Finals MVP, the validation that he has openly and admirably expressed he needed to help him as a person and learn that it... doesn't fix you on the inside".

Security cameras caught vandals graffitiing the phrases "We don't want you", "LeFraud", "No King", and "3-6" (a jab at James' career NBA Finals record) over the mural.

Located outside of a Baby Blues BBQ in Venice, Calif., the mural took roughly 12 hours of work spanning two days, a bucket of paint and more than 75 spray cans, ESPN reported.

"I got a ton of support", Never said, according to ESPN. 'At first when we had the original piece, there was a ton of positivity, but also a ton of like pro-Kobe, anti-LeBron sentiment.

"I hope he finds the happiness that I found (in Los Angeles)", he said.
