paid tribute to the king, and created gorgeous murals in his honor. Unfortunately,
each and every mural was destroyed. Most of them were targeted by Kobe Bryant’s
Bryant’s fans could
not get over the fact that LeBron is the new star on the team. But, the Lakers

fans. Gus’ original hope with the message of the mural was that it ‘overpowers people’s
hate for LeBron.’ Today some fans helped restore the art. Gus said, “Laker fans
got my back!’”
