Jerry West slights Lakers over LeBron signing

Los Angeles Lakers fans wait in line around noon for promised free pizza that will be handed out between 2 and 5 p.m. at Blaze Pizza a restaurant chain NBA basketball player Le Bron James was an original investor in Tuesday

It'll be much more hard for James to contend for a championship this season, as the Golden State Warriors have ruled the Western Conference for four straight years, but his decision to sign with the Lakers this summer wasn't a knee-jerk move by any means.

That title can be seen a bit presumptuous, considering the franchise has already won 16 NBA Titles before James even joined the team, and Never suspects the culprits to be loyal to five-time champion and Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

The "controversial" LeBron James Lakers mural that went up in the Venice area of Los Angeles has been painted over by the artist who created it.

Additionally, while the Cavs talk about winning, a couple players on this list may imporve their trade value by virtue of getting more opportunities with James gone. Deciding enough was enough, Never painted over the mural on Wednesday, explaining its erasure on Instagram.

Artist Jones Never painted a mural of James last week, declaring him "The King of LA".

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

As for Never, he seems to be taking it well and told ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk that he has another Lakers mural in the works, this one featuring the whole team.

"I don't know if it's LeBron haters or Kobe fans or just someone who wants attention", Never says in the video. "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". '[Kyle] Kuzma, LeBron, Lance Stephenson blowing on LeBron'.
