That didn't last long.

The artist who painted the LeBron mural in Los Angeles painted it white on Wednesday — less than a week after it was finished — because it kept being vandalized, according to Yahoo Sports NBA. It was only finished on Friday.

The mural was painted by Jonas Never and artist Fernando Valdez, according to  The Washington Post.  It featured LeBron with a nickname declaring him "The King of L.A."

The mural was defaced the first time with words such as "No King" and the numbers "3-6," which is a reference to his NBA Finals record.

Days before it was vandalized, a Lakers fan account offered a $300 reward to anyone who destroyed the mural.

The mural was restored, but apparently people kept coming back for destruction.

Guess L.A. isn't ready for LeBron to be LABron.
