To honor the arrival of 'King James,' artists Jonas Never and Menso One painted a mural on the side of Baby Blues BBQ in L.A.'s Venice neighborhood. Initially the mural had the words 'The King of LA' painted around James, who is seen in a Lakers uniform.

Fans apparently took exception to 'The King of LA' moniker, with one offering $300 in a since-deleted tweet to anyone who defaced the mural, according to Fox News.
