LeBron James is a Los Angeles Laker and it's going to take all of us some time to get used to that on the basketball court. However, it didn't take some less desirable people long to adjust to LeBron being in L.A. 


Reports came out that LeBron's Los Angeles mansion was being targeted by burglars and while The King tries to focus on playing basketball, he has beefed up the security in and around his home.

According to reports, he hired "at least 10 armed security personnel," some of which are off-duty police officers. There has been a recent string of robberies in the Los Angeles area and, while four people have been arrested, authorities believe that there are still others at large making it more than understandable that LeBron would want to protect his home.

It's been quite the start for James in LA off the court. First, the fiasco with the mural of him, then the weird Blaze Pizza incident, where hundreds of people waited outside a location in hopes of seeing LeBron (he didn't show up), and now he has to hire security to protect himself.

James recently bought this mansion in Brentwood for $23 million -- $20 million more than his first house in LA -- so it shouldn't surprise anyone that he wants to protect his family and his assets. Hopefully, by the time the regular season rolls around, he can have some peace and just focus on playing basketball.
