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

James spoke about the incident in a press conference scheduled for the opening of the NBA Finals.

"As I sit here on the eve of one of the greatest sporting events that we have in sports, you know, race and what's going on comes again, and on my behalf and my family's behalf".

"My family is safe". "And hate in America, especially for African Americans, is living every day". It is hidden most days. James brought up the decision of the mother of Emmett Till to hold an open-casket funeral "because she wanted to show the world what her son went through.being black in America".

In 1955, Till, who was 14, was brutally beaten and killed by two white men in MS after the teenager had an encounter with the wife of one of the men. Till then became a symbol of the Civil Rights movement.

"I look at my son being four years removed from driving his own auto and being able to leave the house on his own", James said.

Los Angeles Police Department officer Aareon Jefferson told CNN that they had received a call Wednesday morning to say that the n-word had been painted on the Cleveland Cavaliers star's gate. It happened Wednesday, May 31, in the Brentwood neighborhood.


James bought the house in 2015 for over $20 million. It is 9,440 square feet.

James was speaking from San Francisco, where his team is training ahead of Game 1 of the National Basketball Association finals. James was not present when the vandalism took place, Eisenman said.

"My wife, talked to my wife".

"Tonight we're honoring Muhammad Ali, the GOAT", James said.

James also sees a lesson for his kids in the incident.?

"I hope that they find the people who have done it and they label it for what it was - a hate crime - and punish them", Wulf said.
