LeBron James' home vandalized with racial slur

LeBron James' home vandalized with racial slur

"No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough", James told reporters.

"I'm the first person to go to the Finals seven straight times since, I think, Bill Russell. and I was the first guy to take two different franchises to the Finals four times".

James was not at his west Los Angeles residence at the time of the vandalism, Eisenman said by phone.

Cleveland Cavaliers play the first game of the NBA Finals on Saturday night against Golden State Warriors but instead of worrying about trying to overcome Steph Curry and Kevin Durant he has instead has had to deal with a racial attack.

James' wife Savannah, sons LeBron Jr., Bryce, and daughter Zhuri were at the family's home in Bath Township, Ohio, a source close to the family said. Till, who was lynched at the age of 14 in 1955 MS, had his body made visible by his mother, who chose an open-casket funeral for her child hoping to shed light on the reality of racism.

The LAPD is investigating the incident as a hate crime and an official police report was expected later Wednesday. "That's the only pressure I worry about", Durant said. "But my family is safe, and that's what's important". But I look at it as, if this can shed light and continue to keep the conversation going on my behalf, then I'm okay with it.

Los Angeles police officer Aareon Jefferson said police were called to the house in the upscale Brentwood neighbourhood around 6:45 am, and by the time they arrived the graffiti had been painted over by property management staff.

"Just shows that racism will always be a part of the world, part of America. And, you know, hate in America, especially for African-Americans, is living every day".

"He's special in so many ways", said Love.

He said he thought about the funeral of Emmett Till, an African-American teenager brutally murdered in the South in 1955 whose body was visible in an open casket at his mother's request.

"Gilbert had continued to stew, though, and in meetings he refused for several years to say James's name". When they see you, they smile in your face.

Game 1 of the Finals is set to go down at ORACLE Arena in Oakland on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.
