A day before LeBron James is set to face off against the Warriors in the Bay Area for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, this happens. The Cleveland Cavaliers star's Los Angeles home was vandalized with n-word graffiti on Wednesday morning.
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.

We're told investigators are looking for security footage from neighbors which may show the perpetrator.

Records show LeBron bought the house back in 2015 but it does not appear he lives there on any regular basis.

The graffiti has since been covered up.
LeBron wasn't home when the incident occurred. Here's hoping they find who did it, because it's pretty messed up when arguably the world's most famous athlete has this happen to him.
