LeBron James Speaks on N-Word Graffiti on His Front Gate:
On Wednesday it was reported somebody spray painted the N-Word on the front gate of
LeBron James home. Many media sources are reporting it was LeBron's home itself.
This is false. The only thing confirmed now is that the front gate was vandalized

for James tonight playing for the third time Stephen Curry and the Golden State

it can be assumed it was meant to offend LeBron James, might have actually embolden
James to play better tonight. Even if that was not the original intention.
