James purchased the home in 2015 and but does not reside there on a regular basis and was not at the property when the vandalism occurred. The NBA star is currently in Oakland, California, where his Cavaliers will play the Golden State Warriors in the first game of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

The graffiti has since been covered up by the property manager and the incident is being investigated as a hate crime, according to TMZ.
