The Brentwood home, which was purchased by James in 2015, reportedly had the N-word spray painted on the front gate.
James, who is now with his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates in the Bay Area preparing for the finals against the Golden State Warriors, does not live in the residence full time and was not reportedly not home at the time of the vandalism.
"(M) ultiple LAPD units and a neighborhood patrol vehicle responded to the home early Wednesday morning.
LA police were investigating Wednesday as James and the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers prepared for Thursday night's Game 1 at Golden State.
In response to the incident, James said America still has a long way to go when dealing with racism.
However, she said the property manager believes surveillance video captured the incident. He's led two franchises each to four championship runs and has made his seventh straight NBA Finals appearance with an end to his streak nowhere in sight. Someone painted over the slur before officers arrived to investigate, Sandoval said. For me, I just try to be respectful, for one, be respectful to others. "I can't recall ever hearing something that was racism towards me".
"I feel like my brain as far as the game of basketball is unique and I would love to continue to give my knowledge to the game", James said.
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.
