— LeBron James has a distraction to deal with just prior to the beginning of the NBA Finals.
TMZ reported Wednesday a home in Los Angeles owned by the Cleveland Cavaliers star was vandalized with a racial epithet:
…Someone spray painted the n-word on the front gate and detectives are now investigating, cops tell TMZ Sports.
Here’s what we know … multiple LAPD units and a neighborhood patrol vehicle responded to the home early Wednesday morning. We’re told the word was scrawled on the outer gate.
James, who maintains a home in Northeast Ohio, and the Cavaliers are set to face the Golden State Warriors in a rematch of the last two NBA Finals.
Game 1 is Thursday night.
