However, people continued vandalizing the mural, so Never painted over it.
"I guess it is never touch religion, politics or anyone against Kobe", Never cracked.
But even if the caption was left with a reference to James's nickname, 'King James, ' the graffiti returned this week, prompting Never to paint over the entire mural entirely. But someone didn't take kindly to its "the King of LA" message, and the painting was vandalized less than two days after it was completed.
"I got a ton of support", Never said. '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 don't know if it's LeBron haters or Kobe fans or just someone who wants attention", Never said while painting over the mural.
Many assumed James would go to Los Angeles, and West saw little of the Lakers' influence on the move. "Some guy did it and posted video of him doing it and responded to the guy and said 'Pay me".
