The Los Angeles home of Cleveland Cavaliers superstar forward LeBron James was found with racist graffiti on the front gate Wednesday morning.
Los Angeles Police Department Officer Aareon Jefferson told CNN they received a call Wednesday morning making them aware that the n-word was painted on the gate of James' home. Jefferson said by the time police arrived, the slur had been painted over.
James was not home at the time and Jefferson told CNN the police are still investigating the incident and cannot say if the home was burgled.
